It’s that time of year again

It’s that time of year again, if you’re thinking the leaves are turning red, orange, yellow, and brown the air is getting that crisp little chill to it, Mabon has come and we have celebrated our second harvest.   Well kind of, if you’re thinking our favorite time of year, Halloween.  Kind of.  Now if you are thinking the time of year where they start emerging from their wackadoo closets then you have hit the nail on the head.   It’s only September 30, 2013, for Goddess sake and already they are starting on the EVILLLL of Halloween.   Now this new special friend is one to laugh at.  That’s right though some of her words may make some of us cringe, she is NOT A THREAT.   As I explained in another post I will not be mentioning the wackadoo’s by name or the title of the story/ blog whatever by name.  I will give you the link to read the article though.   http://www.charismamag.com/blogs/prophetic-insight/7134-the-danger-of-celebrating-halloween

For those of you who don’t know why because when these people do a search to see how popular they are I don’t want them seeing that I have helped made them famous.    It’s a whole ego thing, you know like some of the people in our community who search and hunt you up to see if you’ve mentioned them.  All EGO.

 I shall continue, it has come to my attention that this little wackadoo has an issue with Halloween and the fact that people especially Christians tend to participate in our “dark ways”.  Queue the scary sounds and music.   This lady has a belief that we are casting spells over the Halloween candy and our demons are following the trail.  Okay can you say only watched part of Hansel and Gretel?  I personally would like to be on the payroll for some of these candy companies they would have to pay big right, where would we go to find that job, Monster, and the job qualifications???  I’m sorry Judas but it says here that your last couple of spells were for protection only, that’s not what we are looking for.   What questions would the interviewer ask?   How much does Hershey pay for something like that?

It seems this woman’s claim to fame is her many years of ministering to people involved in the occult.  Really??? Um…why?

 The writer of this article begins by telling us that holiday mean holy day” she then states there is nothing holy about Halloween.   She then goes onto state that the root word of Halloween is “hallow,” which means “holy, consecrated and set apart for service.”  It seems this offends her because she proceeds to claim that some guy name Lucifer (probably an ex of hers) is the reason for us honoring this day.   I also am impressed with the fact that Halloween seems to be the only day that we designate for time released curses.  Oh her ministering is showing.

She states that first we have to celebrate Mabon, which celebrates the changing of the season, okay she’s good there.  It’s nice to know that the orange, brown and dark red’s of the season have nothing to do with those changing seasons but more to do with our praise to the gods for our demonic harvest.   Have any of you ever tried to plant a demon???  Those little bastards are harder to grow then pumpkins, and harvesting them please.   We have also offended this lady by praying to the elements.  She prays to a false idol and angels but we are the bad guys?

 So we celebrate mother earth during our fall demonic harvest.  This really seems to bug her, see because we let the demons loose during our acts of worship.  We offer the goddess fruits, nuts and herbs during our rituals thus calling demons.  They eat the flesh and drink the blood of their savior that they murdered, then pass a plate around to collect money and yet we are evil.

These demons it seems like to attach themselves to the pumpkins of those good church going people who are foolish enough to place them on their lawns.  She also seems to be opposed to bonfires, this lady really needs to get out and live a little more.

 She further goes on to complain about us drinking blood, howling at the moon and watching horror movies.  Because the good Christians are ignorant of the fact that all these cartoon monsters do exist, the article goes on to complain about decorations, people dressing up for parties and kids going door-to-door are all demonic in nature. 

Now here is where it gets fun all these activities are just a ruse they hide what “actually goes on behind the scenes”.

Such as:

  • Sex with demons – Now I’ve never had this but I must admit I have had a few WITCHY WOMEN
  • Orgies between animals and humans- again NOT my thing though I had sex in a barn (yes animals were watching)  and I have also desecrated a couple wooded area’s (again nature was watching)
  • Animal and human sacrifices- Nope to either of these, although….there is a squirrel that I have my sights on especially if he keeps playing in my garden.
  • Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood——————-}BULLSHIT
  • Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies ——} Lets just call this one and the one above what  they exactly are BULLSHIT
  • Revel nights – guilty of enjoying myself and celebrating LIFE
  • Conjuring of demons and casting of spells – spells you got me on —demons not so much,
  • Release of  “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.-I’m not a very patient person so time release is out and I’ve never used a spell against the innocent, ignorant well…that depends on your definition of course.

She finishes by stating that her god doesn’t want them to replace our festivals, it seems that her quest is to utterly destroy them.   The second article is not as much fun, it’s more about how the good Christians should continue celebrating Halloween because it allows you to get together with your neighbors and have fun.  The writer of this article seems to feel that you can take away Halloweens power by celebrating it. 

What neither of these people seem to get is that we aren’t bothering anybody!!  We don’t go door to door trying to peddle our religion like some kind of vacuum salesmen, you won’t find us hanging around outside their churches trying to convert their parishioners as they leave church.  Hells, we don’t even leave pamphlets on their cars.   We don’t curse their pumpkins, nor their candy and we really DON’T CARE if they celebrate Halloween or not.    What we do care about is being treated like the humans we are.  We fight in the same wars they do, we hold the same jobs.  Pay the same taxes and deserve the same respect.    I’m not going to refute point for point the stupid on her blog, why because if you’re reading this, you’re like me and you KNOW we don’t do anything that she claims we do.  Maybe instead of trying to destroy us they should take the time to get to know us.  Naw that would be too much like using a brain cell…what was I thinking? 

 

Until next time….See you around the cauldron

Wackadoo’s out in force

Wackadoo’s on the loose

 

 

Well here’s another one, yep look it’s not even October and the Wackadoo’s are already escaping their cages.  This one is a minster from a church, I have decided not to name him or his church so they can’t do a little search and see how popular they have become.  I can however post the link to the article,  

http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/epidemic-of-babies-thrown-into-trash-cans-a-revival-of-pagan-custom-catholi/

Now if you haven’t read this I’ll wait… * tapping foot* *pacing* *stirring the cauldron and humming to myself* Ah I can tell by the look on your face you just had a WTF moment.      Yup that was my reaction as well.    It seems we once again are being accused of causing children to be dumped, abandoned, murdered by their parents, yes us evil and terrible pagans and our “death culture”. 

 As you see he believes the sudden epidemic of women abandoning their babies is because of an old Pagan custom called “exposure”.  Googled it couldn’t find it!  Yes I did so stop saying I didn’t try.    I looked for the meaning of exposure, found that, looked up pagan customs didn’t find exposure, interesting that when I search “old Pagan custom exposure” the thing that comes up the most is his article.    On the other hand (thanks to my misses) during the Roman Empire days they used to practice this little idea.  And guess what it was usually up to the Fathers, that’s right the MALES no females of the family when it came down to it.           http://www.pbs.org/empires/romans/empire/family.html

This is from that article:

“The influence of women only went so far. The paterfamilias had the right to decide whether to keep newborn babies. After birth, the midwife placed babies on the ground: only if the paterfamilias picked it up was the baby formally accepted into the family.

If the decision went the other way, the baby was exposed – deliberately abandoned outside. This usually happened to deformed babies, or when the father did not think that the family could support another child. Babies were exposed in specific places and it was assumed that an abandoned baby would be picked up and taken a slave.”

Sorry Rev. that just aint  gonna stir well.   First how in this day and age did you come to the conclusion this was a pagan specific custom?  I take it you looked in your own backyard for an answer first right?  I mean you all are teaching your children about safe sex right?   Oh wait NO you’re not.  You’re telling them abstinence works.  No it don’t just look at Mary.  Not that it was divine blah, blah blah… again.   I take it every person arrested for dumping their child all stated they were Pagan right?  That’s what I thought.    You want to know what the problem is?  It’s the church telling their people don’t have an abortion, don’t use birth control, don’t practice safe sex.   You also say that the church will take care of all these unwanted babies.     I have seen some of the faces of these children the church ought to start stepping up because it’s MY Pagan tax dollars that support them.

Why do most women abandon their child/children?  Some because they cannot economically support them,  others because they are too young, too scared and DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO,  it was an accident and not supposed to happen (come visit the Pagans we’ll talk with you about safe sex, or visit your minister who will just condemn you) then there are those who are just too mentally unstable.   It’s not my religion that has these women doing this, it’s society telling them “it’s wrong to be unwed and pregnant in the first place.”   You sir are more responsible than we, your kind fought to take away the right to choose, your kind refuse to pay for any form of contraception for your employee’s,  your kind balk at SEX EDUCATION being taught anywhere.   So instead of blaming us, maybe you should be educating your followers in the ways to keep it from happening IN THE FIRST PLACE.  Or here’s a radical idea EDUCATE instead of SHAMING young parents in how to PROVIDE and PROTECT their children!  It really comes down to education again and again.  If we teach our children, and make sure they understand and are secure in themselves we can help them make better lives for themselves and the children they bring into this world.  You can’t have it both ways, you can’t have people procreate and procreate with no chance or choice of help or support.  Teach them, help them, support them.  The days of shame, and humiliation “Father” are OVER.

 

Now moving on to another group!  It seems the Wackadoo’s came out in double force, these three are priceless  

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2415387/Teenage-exorcists-say-Harry-Potter-corrupted-world-head-Britain-armed-Bibles-Holy-Water-tackle-hotbed-occult-activity.html

Look they go from blaming the Pagans to blaming Rowling’s and Harry Potter.  That’s right all that wicked writing OH but wait what about the bible?  I’m not going to start beating the bible here just pointing out that little book is full of so much hate that they really need to fix that first.    Instead they are going to travel to Britain, “a hot bed of occult activity,” to do what?    Cast out all those nasty demons.    You want to cast the evil out go to Rome, and start with exorcising the demons that run the church.    As you read the article you find that this is more a money making scheme than anything else.   They don’t charge for a group to watch the show but if you need a consultation then they charge you big bucks.   Girls if you have ever actually studied, or even read anything about demon possession the more bodies you have or bigger the show the more chance you have of your so called demon body jumping.  But you knew that right? 

Look I’m sorry that we are proving that The Big Bad Wolf was framed, vampires don’t sparkle and not all of them look at you like food, witches don’t just ride besoms some of them drive really nice cars, wear three piece suits and have good jobs.    Movies like Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, just by the title alone makes us in the Pagan community cringe, I actually ended up watching it all the way through (it wasn’t easy almost turned it off in the beginning), go figure there’s a good witch in the movie more than one actually.   Therein lies the problem, the world is seeing witches as good, real people, a lot of people have discovered that we are human, we have children that attend your schools, we swim in your pools and so on.    Hollywood has gone from constantly slamming us to backhandedly helping us, and some people can’t stand that.  Theirs is no longer a predominant religion, because of their own doing they have fleeced their flocks right out of the church.   Don’t be jealous, your people come to us because ours is the religion that you stole, our holy days, some of our rituals, the church even built their buildings on top of our places of worship and why?  Because you couldn’t STOMP US OUT that’s why. 

I like the “in reality all magic is bad because it comes from Satan,” quote from one of the Witches must die by fire pages recently removed from Facebook.  Umm…so turning water into wine, walking on water, helping the blind to see, parting the Red Sea…. the list goes on those miracles what are they except magic? 

These accusations of Pagans are the cause of the abandoned babies, demon possessions, gays getting equal rights accusations, are a bunch of BS.  Okay, well maybe we had a little to do with the whole gay equal rights thing, but the rest honestly, why not try going to Britain and showing them that all us colonists on the other side of the pond really aren’t a bad bunch.  

To be honest I hope these girls don’t run across a true heavy duty possession,  I’m sure there are witches getting tired of cleaning up all the collateral damage from people playing where they shouldn’t be playing.  Stop pointing fingers, stop playing with things you do not understand and are more powerful than you.  It’s very simple people Pagans whatever flavor, whatever we call ourselves, whatever we believe WE ARE NOT EVIL.  WE ARE NOT THE ENEMY.  We want what everyone wants, to live and believe, and worship our own way in PEACE.    

Until next time…see you around the cauldron

More to magic

 

 

 

Premonition/ pre-mo-ni-tion:   

  1. A presentiment of the future; a foreboding
  2. A warning in advance; a forewarning

Intuition/ in-tu-i-tion

  1. The act or faculty of knowing or sensing without the use of rational process; immediate cognition.
  2. Knowledge gained by the use of this faculty; a perceptive insight
  3. A sense of something not evident or deducible; an impression

According to the free dictionary this is what premonition and intuition means.  (www.thefreedictionary.com/premonition , www.the freedictionary.com/intuition)

 

 

Let’s see a show of hands of people who have actually had one of these.    Come on I know some of you have.   There you go raise your hand and be proud.   What I have discovered in our little community is that we have a lot of none believers.  *Gasp* That’s right witches who are non- believers, how can that be?   Well , we have learned in a society that teaches you magic is candles, and incense.   I know a lot of you are going to say well if you’ve read this book by so and so or taken the time to read that one.

Look let’s be honest, most of these books teach us how to raise energy and direct it, others lean more on the brews and potions, how to write a spell,  we even get a lesson or two on meditation and astral projection.  The last two don’t make it into all the books.  What about good ole intuition or premonition?    I have two questions for you why as witches do some of us NOT use either of these and even more important WHY do we not believe others when they say they have had them.    Part of the answer is easy none of the books I’ve read mention it.   It’s the second part that is more disturbing, that a lot of witches are just incense and candle witches.   These are witches who light the candle and incense, maybe say a few words then just go about their day.   Ok, let me say there is NOTHING WRONG with that either, but there is more out there.  They may keep an altar in their house with all the trappings on it, have a book case full of books and even shelves of herbs, but honestly they use very little of what they have you don’t have to meditate to be a good witch.  I know some of you will argue that point, but I know witches who are very capable of directing thought and power without the aid of meditation.      

Well these people have problems believing anything other witches tell them because it has NEVER happened to them.   I can astral, I suck at it most times but I can do it.  I have met others who have traveled to different realms.  Now when they told me their stories did I balk at them?  No sure there was that little part of me that was skeptical, why, because of some of my church up brining, did I ridicule them NO I pointed them in the direction of someone I knew could help them go further than I ever could.  One thing is certain, if you do astral projection what you see there may or may not be the same as someone viewing the exact same space will see.  I believe it comes down to our personal interpretations and personal feelings, where one person may see a glob of energy in a particular color, someone else may see a large predator, why? Personal  interpretations.

I have had people do an astral travel over me and say things like your about to get really sick, and they were right.  Now I have never even met this person face to face or talk to them on the phone all we ever did was email and chat yet they claimed they could do this and this is what they saw, so yeah I believed them.  Now you may say “self fulfilling prophesy” ok and I can understand that, but this person believes in themselves and what they see, and I’ve had more than one experience with them that taught me to trust what they see as well prior to myself being sick so that doesn’t work. 

We have constrained ourselves with all these rules that some of us have have forgotten how to practice and enjoy the wonders of it.  Don’t lay your altar out this way, do it that way.  Don’t write a spell like that, don’t talk about it, and so on.  Guys if we get a premonition, or our intuition tells us something it’s for a REASON.  Sometimes we are supposed to communicate it with others.   We are the decipherer’s of dreams, we are supposed to go on our feelings, most writers of our learning books tell you what they have practiced, how they have learned they don’t tell us this is the only way, so why do some of us feel that we should act like it is?   Because they are scared to admit that they cannot be part of every aspect of the craft.    To me that’s what makes a good coven, or even a good group of witches who may practice separately most of the time and get together once in a while it is a group made up of members who not only can do things like write spells, and chant, but astral travel, and projection, dream interpretation, empathy and so on, the most important thing is BELIEVING when one of your members or friends say they can do something.

Your friend saw the Goddess in the seat beside them and you didn’t does that make them a liar?  NO it means the Goddess has something to say to them and , She needed them to pay attention, what should you do?  Believe.

They heard someone whisper something in their ear and you didn’t, believe.

And the next time someone says to you, they have heard, seen, felt, noticed whatever and they are trying warn you or want to share the experience with you.  Don’t ridicule them, BELIEVE them, maybe just maybe they are right.

Remember there is more to magic then candles and incense there are always shades of Grey.

Hope to see ya around the Cauldron

Judas
