Be Careful: Wiccans Stay Alert to The Thin Veil

On the astral plane, I breathed easily, talking with the God and Goddess. In the midst of my meditation, I knew that standing in the Stone Circle was safe.

Just as I took some steps to leave the Stone Circle, the God moved like a flash and barred my exit.

Then I heard a gut-wrenching fight between Jerry (my protective animal spirit) and some thing—outside the protective Circle.

Apparently, Jerry won. He came back to my side and guided me safely back to the earthly realm.

Soon, I opened my eyes. My meditation was complete.

The next day I talked to a friend, and she told me that “All religions have prophesies foretelling this.”

This what? The Veil between the earth and the astral plane is currently quite thin. Around the time of Samhain, The Veil usually does become thinner. However, at this moment, The Veil appears thinner still.

What can we do?

Put up extra wards and protections around your home and your life.

  1. Employ Witch’s Bottles.

I begin with revamping my witches’ bottles. Learn to make you own Witch’s Bottle here.

  1. Bless Salt or Stones for Protection

You can bless salt or stones (particularly hematite) and pour or place them around doors and windows. Wiccans pour blessed salt across thresholds, doors and windows. Wiccans place blessed stones next to such areas, too.

Here is a prayer to instill protection on your chosen substance (salt or stone):

By Sun and Moon,
by stream and sea
may protection come unto me.
I ask the Lord of Death and the Lady of Reincarnation
to take any negative or rough entity back to where they belong.
May this salt [or stones] protect me and my home.
So Mote It Be.

May these protection elements bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Wiccan View: How to Know Why You Are Here on This Planet

“So much doesn’t make sense now,” my friend, Jacob, said.

“I can guess some of what you’re referring to,” I replied. “Is there something specific that really bothers you?”

“I … I guess. I don’t know why things have to be so screwed up. I feel really bad,” he said.

This began an extended conversation that left me thinking deeply.

So much of what bothers us comes down to asking “Why?”

And then the big question: “Why am I here?”

I have often looked on the earth as a classroom.

So, then the question might take on a new tint, “What am I here to learn?”

The next thought is: “To find out what you must learn, think of… What triggers you? What makes you sad, scared or angry?”

Deep meditation holds the key to the mystery.

Triggers Meditation

Find a quiet somewhere you know you will not be disturbed. Turn off your phone and choose a place to sit comfortably. Keep your back straight.

The Meditation

[Consider recording the following words on your smartphone, and then you can play the recording back. In this way, you would be guided through the process by your own voice.]

First, close your eyes. Notice that the light begins to fade around you. Slowly at first, then it gets darker and darker. Until you are in total darkness, where you feel safe and secure.

(Pause)

Then, just as the darkness came, it leaves. The light returns, slowly at first. Gradually, it gets brighter and brighter. Notice you are in a new place—standing inside a great temple. In front, you find a large stone altar, and you step up to it.

On the altar’s right, you see a large cauldron. Within it, fire burns brightly. It is warm and soothing.

Turning back to the altar, you view three objects resting on the smooth surface. Each of these objects represents a trigger in you. They can represent any belief that keeps you sad, scared or angry.

Picking up the first object, you examine it closely. It is round and light.

(Pause)

You aim the object at the cauldron and continue to feel the warmth of the fire. Toss the object into the fire, and watch as it is consumed by the flames.

Smoke rises from the burning ball. You marvel as you see something in the smoke. Realize that this object in the smoke represents an unknown trigger inside you. Perhaps, it is the source of your sadness or fear—or anger.

(Pause)

Go to the altar. Pick up the second object. Examine it and notice it is round and light.

(Pause)

You aim the object at the cauldron and continue to feel the warmth of the fire. Toss the object into the fire, and watch as it is consumed by the flames.

Smoke rises from the burning ball. You marvel as you see something in the smoke.  Realize that this object in the smoke represents an unknown trigger inside you. Perhaps, it is the source of your sadness or fear—or anger.

(Pause)

Turn to the final object on the altar. Pick up this last object and examine it, finding it to be round and light.

(Pause)

You aim the object at the cauldron and continue to feel the warmth of the fire. Toss the object into the fire, and watch as it is consumed by the flames.

Smoke rises from the burning ball. You marvel as you see something in the smoke.  Realize that this object in the smoke represents an unknown trigger inside you. Perhaps, it is the source of your sadness or fear—or anger.

(Pause)

Step back from the cauldron. Notice something that you didn’t perceive before. Now resting on the left side of the altar, you find a small silver chest—about the size of a shoebox.

Feel something in your pocket. Pull out the object—the key of knowledge and truth. You find the place to insert the key into the chest. Upon using the key, you hear a quiet click, and the chest opens.

Inside, you see three new and different objects. Pick them up and then find a comfortable place to sit down. Realize that these objects represent three positive truths. These objects are the keys to learning how to grow beyond your old triggers.

(Pause)

Your time here is done. Place these new objects safely into your pocket.

Breathe deeply. One … Two … Three. Notice the light begins to fade around you. Slowly at first, it gets darker and darker. Until you are in total darkness, where you feel safe and secure.

(Pause)

Then, just as the darkness came, it leaves. The light returns, slowly at first. Gradually, it gets brighter and brighter. The light is back. Now open your eyes and see you are back from your meditation. You are safe, feeling refreshed.


May this meditation empower you to find your personal purpose.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

  • Candle-holder
  • Rose Incense
  • Rose oil
  • Two rings
  • Ritual tools

Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Dress your candle by rubbing your oil from tip to base. Cleanse and consecrate your candle and rings. Place the pink candle on your altar in its holder. Place the rings by the candle. Take your friend’s hands and both of you say over the rings together:

I swear upon my soul,

Honesty, love, and kindness I shall show.

I State my true name (_each state your name_),

That I am a true friend to you through and through.

That I will be most honest with you,

As I so will, so mote it be!!

Each person places a ring on the other person’s hand other and says:

Blessed Be,

Mead—Mix and Make—the Wiccan way.

“What is it?” I asked.

“You’ll have to open it,” John said.

I opened the large box that contained my holiday gift. Inside, I found a brewing kit. “Perfect!”

When I was in my mid-20s, I brewed mead. However, I lost my equipment in the move from my childhood home.

It had been a long time since I brewed anything, so I needed a refresher. So, I purchased a book about mead-brewing.

I eagerly read the book—and that takes some doing since I’m dyslexic. Learning about Vikings and how they brewed mead had my attention.

Today, I am once again excited to try my hand at brewing mead. However, this time I am trying an open-air brewing technique I found in the book. It’s brewing done old school—like our ancestors did long ago. Along this line, Wiccans like brewing mead.

Instead of using commercial yeast, I will be harvesting wild yeast. This is something our ancestors did at the beginning of their brewing exploits.

So, I gathered up all the equipment and ingredients that I needed, including a rod to mix my brew. I would dedicate my mead-brewing efforts to the God and Goddess. I wanted to make the mixing rod a sacred tool. Therefore, I wrote a blessing to imbue my new mixing rod with the powers of the God and Goddess.

Mixing Rod Blessing

Blessed Be this Sacred Rod
May it Bestow with Healing Energies of the Gods
Let my Rod mix my brew
With Health, Wealth, Peace, and Joy anew
All who taste the brew mixed with this Rod
May Find Everlasting Blessedness from the Gods
As I will, So Mote It Be

In the next days, I’ll see how my renewed interest in mead-brewing goes.

Are you considering adding something new to your daily activities?

May your adventures go well.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
