Cursed

So I have been doing much research on the aspect of a curse. I did dive into the practice of blood basting or offering up first burns. No, I stuck to the basic etymology and ideology of humans relationship to a curse. It’s very simple. The word originates whenever someone says something against someone else. That’s why scholars have trouble finding the origin of this word and any other meaning that ill, anger intent or situation. What matters most is not a curse but words. I used to laugh at the whole bibles “name is claim it” and “no don’t let the devil hear you!” And now thought I still think this is just one very simple aspect to use fear to deter people from proclaiming any malicious words or disdain expression. So, that’s simple. If a guy in my dorm keeps leaving his wet clothes in the wash and I say “damn it! I hope he get what comin to him!!” You can best believe that is a curse. What if he has a legit reason?! Like slippery finger disease?! Now if I were to say “damn! I hope he gets what he deserves” this isn’t a curse. Because, well, maybe you just sent out energy to assist the doctors in making some super finger healing ointment! This may be what he deserves! My anger release would be nothing more then a charge of negative energy in the room, and probably assist in helping me be bitter about laundry etiquette. This should show that simply naming and claiming doesn’t have quite the impact as one would hope. This is because of intent and often more than anything; wording. The idea of cursing someone or something is a blast or thought out act of distinctly intense energy. “I am so ugh that I’m gonna….!” While declaring “I’m gonna be rich!” To my coven, congregation, or nudist group does quite have to same punch. The receivers of the proclamation are many, where as with curses and blessing at times too!, it is charged to one distinct origin. It’s not going to happen that people will stand in a congregation cursing each other but they would stand and proclaim. And this sends energy into the action to BEGIN manifestations but the rest is a lengthy process of commitment, intent, and drive to work the energy to the cause or outcome. To be rich, you may simply need to work really really hard. As you do this thought the energy would build and help you if you continued to work in such manner.
Now I could imagine a street riot of people strewing streams of curses across the street, or perhaps a fight in the hall, or the abusive husband; but then again we see the intensity of this action, this energy.
I read an article “is it worth to curse” and the author says that if her sister were rape she surely would curse the perp. Because the damage is already done (the worry of curse 1 and you’ll be 3x cursed back doesn’t apply then), it seemed she denoted it a type of retribution. And I agree.
I recently had a friend ask me if I did dark arts or black magic or whatever she said. She asked if I worked with curses. And I said “well I’m sure I’ve been mad enough at someone I’ve probably said something I shouldn’t have. Don’t we all?!” And she said “no real curses what do you think about them” so this encouraged me to research. I think she felt someone had put some random curse on her, but I wanted to ask her if she knew the definition of kharma. An even dharma! I’m of the school that if you do things knowingly hurting others, live life ego lead (which is easy to do aahhhh), or live a life as if people owe you (this often is the relationship with jealousy, selfishness, and feeling rejected: these people love to do things for people but are unaware that the expect something in return and when they don’t get it they feel rejected and this insues drama if they’re unbalance so as they can communicate their expectations), you will attract negativity to you. Doing positive thing attract negative ions to you but because we may be balanced and confident we become merely a conduit of a small displacement of Ionic energy rather than having bad thin happening unusually too often. These negative ions are transformed by spirit, too, to teach us lesson, manifest a dark or light side of us we didn’t know we had, and much more. Ying and yang. If I bask in a bubble of love juice all day long I’d drown in my own lack of need for humanity. But, we are really humans and capable of saying things that have impact, doing things to change lives, and more!
What I learned about curses is simply this: we all do it, it nothing less than saying something in the heat of the moment, and a term used to scare people away from antiChristian studies. Curses and the antithesis of blessings. And that’s about it! If blessing is a good word. There may be a better word!

Altar L


Familiars

I blessed my dear familiar, and we have allotted this day to her being. Our dear pit bill daisy continues to be a second skin to our home, thoughts, and lives. She moves when we move, loves when we love, mourns when we mourn. And most of all, keeps us safe both physically and spiritually in her sheer connection of life bond.
The moon in taurus we lit a brown candle and held things in her honor, stones we chose and messaged her with them. We said “bless our familiar, pet, loved one, god and goddess. May no harm come her way and honor her for being here everyday. So mote it be” and we put the stones on the altar, poured love into her and then left the circle to let the candle burn on her honor for 15 minutes!


Responsible Craft

20120205-143626.jpg

One thing I find seeping into my pores after the sweat has been issued from labor is the dull sting of responsibility or consequence of work. Not all labor is beneficial. One thing I have learned during my 10 years of spiritual study is to validate beliefs and actions not in response to critical demand but in consequence to that which is least popular. In other words, of everyone is buying a Honda for good gas mileage should I buy a Honda considering only the popular aspects or really analyze the reality of its purchase: if I buy the Honda because I don’t have a car I will actually be spending more to get about as successfully as I am now. When doing energy work accessing I like to adequately consider the following:

1) Is this something that I need?
Making jewelry craft or spiritual craft, I ask myself if what I’m producing is truly something that will benefit or assist in my life or others. If I’m doing something that I could be doing on my own with our craft work or of I make a necklace I’ll never share or wear its consequence eventually will be affecting. Over the years I felt obligated to attend meetings or light a candle just because others were, not because I needed to.

2) Do I have the time? A lot of things we commit ourselves to generally cause more harm than good. We make promises and run out of time to keep them. We set things up to never pay them any mind. Books sit stiff spined. And all the while being spread thin, we are hurting others and ourselves. If you don’t have the time to take responsibility for an action do not do it.

3) Will this be in harmony? I believe in equal relationship with positive and negative relationship. Meaning that in an action there will be an amount of good and an amount of seeming bad. Both are necessary and both are consequential. If something seems overly, abundantly good then chances are somewhere somehow to balance the energy the negative will be absorbed. So, do we just live dull unpassionate lives?! I am disinclined to! Rather, I beg myself to be willing to absorb the positive and negative affects of my action. And though this may not always be possible, we really have to ask ourselves is the milk ever really for free?! No. Someone is always effected in some way. Balance is what I encourage. Consider the emotional and physical excretions of the action and the victims of its blessing or curse.

Considering the above may help us think twice before delving into and activity or craft. Not all things are what they seem in broad daylight. The darkness holds the heart of many truths and balance is necessary. Being able to weigh our actions against the natural structure of things evokes maturity and learning! May the weight rest in blessedness!


Grave’s Disease

The pain in the side for us all is the affliction of choice.  But, I wonder at the consequences of things beyond our control.  I did some energy work last Sunday; a calm, peace bringing candle work.   Though my room was blissful and suddenly my heart found a new, simple path of purpose or choices. Monday I was vomiting insanely until wednesday.  When by friday the symptoms eased save for the pain in my side and middle railed between my nerves screaming, I ran my happy butt to the doc.  He said that it’s probably my Graves Disease initiating an autoimmune response causing my pancreas and gallbladder to become irate.

To what extent? I don’t know: the testing process is still in action.  I couldnt figure out the consequence of my energy work.  Because like all choices, there are always consequence.  I don’t believe that the work of peace has claimed my organs as a penance rather I’m thankful that I am relaxed enough to see and act on this new experience. However, there is an issue of responsibility and consequence that resonates in any choice like any spell or energy work.

One thing I’ve learned is that though you can raise or lower energy to become something useful, you can not change the outcome with out first changing yourself.  If you’re on the road to alcoholism there’s no spell to solve that until you chose to change yourself.  However, there is energy that will assist in helping with transitions.  Most often in assisting the change, we become complacent and inactive due to the manifestation of assisted change: something that was suddenly so difficult becomes slightly easier or clearer and so we relax.  This is no time to relax!  This is the time assess responsibility and to accept the consequences of past choices and future consequence.

Often in meditation and peaceful practices, we rely on their affects rather than our actions.  I highly believe that anyone can benefit from peaceful practices as they tend to less manipulate or infringe on our life: they relax us and tame us so we can process.  But like having that sip to relax because I couldn’t lasso my road rage, I could rely on meditation rather than choosing to accept responsibility for my struggles and the need to manifest change.  It is like we our digging our own grave with a heart for love and peace but a will strapped to the back of a Hearst.  There is a simplicity of responsibility that many religious practices fail to attend, so speaks the aisles filled with self help books.  We want the change, but how many people put into action responsibly that which they ask for?

Next blog I want to address how to access responsibility.  It only seems fair when I’m claiming laziness on behalf of myself and others! lol  I’ll give some tips on things that have helped me decide what I need to do actively and how not to take advantage of my meditation!


Holiday Blues

It really happens. Everyone is exuding glee an emitting sheer wintery bliss, I sit alone with a frost bit nose and not sure why.  It doesn’t make much sense, because this is my favorite time of year.  Not for the holidays, the chilly weather opens up the options in my closet and the accessories are limitless.  But this Christmas I felt as blue as my royal, velvet skirt.  The meaning of my actions whirled in my head, though I tried not to take myself too seriously. Then my mom gave me a book: “God’s Wisdom for Mothers”.  It wasn’t the joy suffocating be or the twinkling lights in airports blinding my eyes.  It was and is the simple notion of not belonging.  Whether because of loss of kin or Christ, Christmas seems to be a reminder for many of what we don’t have.  Some people over spend, others help those in need, and even those who have lost a family member feel the pressure of something missing.  Though my situation doesn’t compare to familial death,  I feel an immortal death from my family.  Will I be with them in the afterlife? I can only follow truth to the best of my ability.  But in the full bliss of Christmas, the tree doesn’t reflect it’s true meaning but symbolizes to me everything Christmas isn’t.  Melancholy, yes.  At least I got to wear a cute velvet skirt!

C Craft

Here’s a sample of my writing skills:

How much good could in witchcraft craft

If a witch draft could craft good

Ok ok now I’m just making myself laugh.  Maybe it’s because of my sinus infection.  Onto my mint tea and jewelry craft now.  I’ve got some new pendulums I’m dying to twist around someone neck!!


B Craft

Blessed Be!  In this generation, people are more tolerant, open minded, and self conscious.  But at what cost? Let’s ask the church.  It’s hard when all of the things that have been crafted into the mind and spirit are realized as gimmick and game. Maybe people will throw things at me and boo me.  I don’t know.  But, the history of the Christian church has it’s own jihad repeating through out the years.  I don’t want to be a part of this history.  So, what will this generation generate?  I creep along the earth with other wondering souls searching for truth, but, again, what cost?  I don’t think we know or care.  Hm.  Anyway, I will whip my hands into the breeze tonight and seek which craft rings true.
