Students and teachers

Hope everyone had a great Samhain and Day of the Dead!

The student-teacher relationship is always a tough one. In many respects each relationship is different and tailored to the student. In the spiritual paths students have a lot of expectations of their teachers. Whether they expect them to act a certain way, teach certain things, or go at a certain pace. And teachers almost never  meet all the expectations, but after a time the student learns this and that responsibility to the student is met. But what responsibilities do students have to their teachers?

This is something that all teaching groups come to understand and create over time. Soon the teachers set out guidelines and expectations for their students. It becomes something solid and respectful to all involved. This is a great outlook to take when working within any learning relationship. Even if your teachers are deity, angels, totems, spirit guides, etc. Learn what they expect from you, their rules to follow, and clearly set out your expectations as well. Then all parties come to the table in honesty and respect.

Tools for Every Day

With Samhain coming close the activity has been kicked up a notch. There is power in the air and spirits roaming the forests. Many sensitive people can become overwhelmed at this time because their gifts can power up to an uncomfortable level. This is a good time to remember the quick tips for keeping yourself excess-energy free.

Cleansing is when you rid yourself of unwanted or negative energies. It helps you shed the emotional energy of yourself and others as you have gone about your day. The most well known cleansing method is smudging. Where you burn sage and 'bath' yourself in the smoke. Also done for homes and cars. Salt mixed with water can also be used for cleansing, as long as it won't harm the items in your home. Salt water baths are good for personal cleansing.

This is a common technique where you go into a meditative state to center yourself and 'root' yourself in the earth. It helps to re-energize you and flush out the excess or foreign energy you may have collected in your everyday life. Your meditation focus is visualizing yourself standing upon the earth. The most common practice is to imagine yourself growing roots into the earth like a tree. I have also heard of sending your awareness, a star from your third eye, and other symbols for your body into the earth core to anchor you. When you are done with meditation you simply retract the item(s) and be on your way.

Shielding is another common technique but this should be done after a cleansing. Once your body is cleansed of the unwanted energies you can do grounding as an optional step to re-energize you with earth energy. Then you sit quietly and take a deep breath. When ready exhale slowly and imagine a bubble of energy building up around you. If you have trouble with a bubble, you can visualize a ring, robe, or armor instead. The energy can take any form that you are comfortable. For instance, my bubble usually appears in my mind as ice or crystal. But your bubble could be fiery, leafy, or metal. Once your bubble/armor/ring is up relax and say aloud, "I am protected from unwanted energy. Only good may pass." Simple as that. If you feel the need to you can reaffirm this during the day.

For the everyday witch, sensitive, or empath these are great tools to help you remain you through your everyday life. Especially for this time of year. Good luck and blessings.

A few updates for Spring

With Ostara coming up, there is a lot of change on the horizon. Now is the time for spring cleaning! And after cleaning there is nothing better than a home blessing and a personal cleansing.

WC is going strong and there is still a bright future for this community! The school will continue to gain popularity as it becomes primarily on-site. We are continuing our newsletter and hoping to see WC's school help out the pagan community as a whole.

WC is also giving the invitation to those who are going through MDAP that, after passing through the school, becoming part of the Sky Cradle Tradition. A goal-oriented eclectic tradition. The main goal is to promote healing of the self and the community. Give them a look over, as it is an up and starting tradition.

Last mention of The Ancient Egyptian Daybook. It has 3 days left and still has some goals to go. I think this can be a fun project that I, for one, am looking forward to.

Have a great spring everyone and blessings!

Toss Your Problems to the Croc

In honor of this kickstarter project WC has been mentioning, I thought I would write up a spell with one of our favorite gods.

Toss Your Problems to the Croc

-flowers/flower petals
-a large bowl of water or access to a creek/pond
-picture of a crocodile or alligator

Fill the bowl of water or visit your favorite creek/pond. Take with you the picture of the crocodile, even a simple printed picture will work. Along with the picture take a bundle of flowers or flower petals. Sit beside your water source and place your picture beside you. One by one, take up a flower/petal and think of a single problem you have been struggling with. Focus all of that into the flower/petal; say it aloud as well. When you have focused enough of that energy and tension into the flower, toss it into the water. When you do, say...

"Rip and tear these troubles away,
Great Croc, Sobek, in waters I pay."

For every flower/petal you have focus a problem, trouble, woe, or other drama that may be effecting your life at this time. After each flower is tossed in, say the phrase to Sobek. When you have finished, stand and give thanks to Sobek for releasing your troubles.

If you have a bowl, toss out the water away from your property. If using a creek or pond, give extra thanks to the land spirits for helping you.

When you can, wash your hands and release the negative thoughts.

The Ancient Egyptian Daybook

Wanted to let everyone know of this project that is become big in the Kemetic community. It is about setting up a book-calender that explains the holidays of Kemet (egypt) and overlays them in our calender. I think it is an amazing project and if it reaches a larger budget even more extras will be made. Anywhere from donating copies to libraries to creating an interactive calender app. Take a minute to look at the project. Its amazing.

Breath of HealingSpell

Breath of Healing

-mint leaves (or very strong mints)

Take the mint leaves and hold them in your hands. Fold your hands over the leaves and imagine them sucking in the heat and energy of your hands. Open your hands a little. Say this over the leaves,

"The sweet waters that flow,
The gentle winds that blow,
Refresh our spirits deep,
In these leaves our healing steeps."

Visualize the energy in the air soaking into the leaves. Take the leaves and place them in your mouth (make sure they are clean). Chew the leaves but do not eat. When you can clearly taste the mint, tuck the leaves in your cheeks. Blow upon your body, the places that need healing. If another person needs healing, gently blow upon their picture or visualize them while blowing air past your lips.

Spell for Banishing

One of the most popular posts on WC Blog is the Sigil for Banishing unwanted spirits. So I thought I would provide another way to get rid of them. 

Spell for Spirit Banishing

-Black or dark red candle (minimum 5 inches tall)
-Black or dark red ribbon
-Fire proof bowl, big enough for the candle to sit in

Pick up your candle. Imagine it as a huge black (or red) tower than looms over your head. it is not scarey to you, but more like a guardian. Take the salt and rub it into the candle. Visualize the salt giving the candle its energy to purify. Taking the black (or red) ribbon, begin wrapping it around the base of the candle. We don't want it to burn when the candle is lit, but it should be wrapped around the base (first inch of candle). As you wrap, visualize your guardian tower filled with your spirit guides, angels, teachers, and beings that love you. The tower keeps them safe and gives them a vantage point to watch over you. When you feel that protective energy, say,

"The great tower about me stands,
No ill-will shall break its wall,
In light it gives its steady beat,
It banishes at my beckon call!
Be gone!"

Visualize the candle washed in this protective and purifying energy. Place it in the fire proof bowl. Pour salt into the bowl so the candle is surrounded. 
When ever you feel the need light the candle and visualize it, and all your spiritual allies, pushing oyut the negative.

Almond Light

Almond Light
prosperity spell

-green bag(s)
-green ribbon

Take the almonds and put them in the bowl. Put your bag(s) and ribbon to the side. Clap your hands twice and hold them, palms down, over the bowl. Say,

 "Easy come, easy go, until it comes again. 
 Know the source, know the times, and abundance will you tend." 

Close your eyes. Visualize the sun, brimming with power. See its rays being soaked up in the trees and plants. Imagine the sun's power soaking into the almond tree, which grows its nut from this strength. The almonds are reserves of sunlight. Visualize the bowl of almonds under your hands filled with the light of the sun. As you feel them radiating that energy, say what your need is. If you need money, say so. If you need a house or car, say so. Whatever your material need is, job, cash, or object, say it in your head or aloud. Keeping your eyes closed, see the bowl of almonds glowing with white light. As you hold your need in your heart see the white light begin to turn a beautiful shade of green. When you feel that the energy has been focused open your eyes. Take a few almonds from the bowl and put them in the green bag(s). Tie it off with green ribbon and keep it in your work place or where you keep your wallet. You can make many bags as gifts for others. Keep the bowl of almonds, however many are left, in the busiest place in your house.

Year of the Dragon - Ending?

So the year of the dragon is coming to a close. Whatever this means for you, it also means a fresh start. The year of the snake is fast coming. Take time to welcome in this new year's medicine. Snake is elegant, creative, and expressive. Let these energies guide you in this coming year! But give credit to the medicine of the dragon as it's influence fades.
