Hmmmmmmm finaly have time to post.
Current mood: exhausted
My Comment Exhausted? From what, I know, from playing on the computer to much.
Or maybe from to much schemeing.
Back to the blog.
Well.............we have most of our stuff at the new house.Finnished painting the livingroom, dining room and b-fast nook onWednesday. Then spent 2 days moving things over. Have beensleeping here since Thursday night. Mom and Dad were hereyesterday. They brounght beds for the girls and a few other thingssince they are downsizing so they can fit into their new house. Dadhelped Charlie move our 54 inch prjection TV over. Today hes goingto go get the waterbed if he can. I'll be here moving thingsaround, organizing and unpacking.
MY COMMENT: Great spelling huh? she says our stuff isn't it nice how she adapted his stuff so quickly. Why buy beds for the girls when you don't have them. It's not your tv either it is that man who felt sorry for you and took you off the street. Moving things around, organizing, and unpacking, will you ever find the energy to do that. When you could never keep a clean house. Good thing you don't have a dog. I wouldn't want to step into it.
Back to the blog.
Mike has decided our youngest child needs to be on meds for ADHD.He and the teachers are having a lot of problems with her.DUH.............she wants to live with me.........so he wants todrug her into submission. GRRRRRRRRR I'm going to fight him asmuch as I can. We had her tested for ADHD a couple years ago andthe Doctor said she didn't have it and that her problems arebehavioral. Now he wants to drug her. Thank the Gods we have jointcustody and I can fight him on this. Time to call the courts andstate my case. I also have some paperwork I need to send them.
MY COMMENT: She is so much smarter than Doctors and Teachers. Oh yea lets bring God into this. As for her wanting to live with you, what did you promise her? Another empty promise. You really sound like your are a real good Mom. NOT.
I don't think Mike ever decided. It was a professional who decided,
if you spent more time with your kids instead of worrying about who you
could talk to on the internet. You could one day be a descent Mom.
And actually show them that you really care. But til then That won't happen.
It's time to wake up. As for paperwork, I am sure it is paperwork that states you are unfit.
I think you don't have a snow ball chance in hell of anything but to continue to do what you do best, NOTHING.
You should really stop lying to those children. It a shame for you don't feel your daughter should have help when she is so unstable. Caused by you. To bad the little girl is so confused she just says why does Mommy lies all the time. It upsets her.
Back to the Blog.
Off to start putting my house together!!!!
MY COMMENT : my house? Don't make us all laugh.
Care to make any comments on this lame story feel free to post on it.

With Kwik Trip and BP stations to fall back on, maybe it could work.
Hollsworth, offered this good idea:
This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the "don't buy gas on a certain day"
campaign that was going around last April or May!
The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't
continue to "hurt" ourselves by refusing to buy gas. It was more of an
inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT, whoever
thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.
Please read it and join with us!
By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.50 is super cheap
Me too! It is currently $2.75 for regular unleaded in my town.
Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to
think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50-$1.75, we need to take
aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace....
With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action.
The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas!
And we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.
How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas.
But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war.
Here's the idea:
For the rest of this year, DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from the
two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.
If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices.
If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.
But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and
Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do!! Now, don't whimp (sic) out on me at this point...
keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!
I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you send it to at
least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send it to at least ten more
(300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers!
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each,
then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it goes one level further,
you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!! Again, all you have to
do is send this to 10 people and DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from EXXON and MOBIL. That's all.
How long would all that take? If each of us sends this email out to ten more people
within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be
contacted within the next 8 days!!! I'll bet you didn't think you and I had
that much potential, did you! Acting together we can make a difference.
If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on.
PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE
$1.30 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK

Have you seen some of the decorations? What kind of Celebration will you be having?
You may want to think about this kind of event...Order of service:Ok the Gathering; Everybody gets together.How about The Blessing; Kissing and Blessing
Start with the opening: Let nothing disturb the work of the God.
All who enter hereafter.
Liturgy; In the beginning there was a void,
God came and put a thought into that void. The thought, thought of dust.
Cosmic dust appeared in the void. The dust formed the Universe.
The thought, thought spirit. The spirit formed life and soul.
Thus did God form the universe. The power of thought is limited only by the God.
The God guidedour footsteps with thought. He sent prophets and healers to us.
The Universe has stopped listening to the God. We will listen, Oh God,
Tell us your ways.Have a friend of the Coven speak for a few minutes
on a specific topic.Draw up the cone of power. Think of nothing but the cone.
retain the image in your mind.Wait for guidance.Ask anyone who needs healing.
Every must concentrate on healing after a time all hold hands and release the
cone of power. left over power heal the sick that are there.Break the circle.
Thank the God for his Bounty and joy.
Bless all present there.

Cindy says: Join me on the StopGlobalWarming.org campaign.
From the vanishing glaciers in Montana to the damaged coral reefs of Florida;
to sinking villages in Alaska and wild fire outbreaks in California,
the impacts of global warming are a part of daily life across the United States.
It is crucial that you join the March because the consequences of doing nothing are unimaginable.
It affects everyone. Young, old, rich, poor, urban, rural, right wing, left wing,
those in the middle. Global warming is a national security problem, an
economic problem, and a public health problem. And it's not going to get better
unless we act now.
And so we need all Americans to join together and urge our leaders to take
action to stop global warming. Leading scientists, political and religious leaders,
prominent Americans and concerned citizens have joined but we can't achieve
our goals without you. It is through our numbers and personal stories that we will spur our community, government and business leaders to take action against global warming.
I awoke one day to find I have all the power in the Universe, but I am completely alone.
I asked myself, what shall I do with all my power, I am all alone with no one to play with.
So I decided I would divide myself up into an infinite amount of different things.
I will become an infinite multitude of conscious and unconscious entities/objects.
Everything shall be apart of me. I will take all of the parts of myself which are conscious,
and make them temporarily forget the whole of myself. I shall through out eternity
play an endless game of "hide and seek" with myself. I will make this illusionary
game so realistic that when I play the part of a human, I will not realize that all the
other humans I interact with are simply parts of myself.
I will play this game through out eternity for I have nothing else to do but play.
I will experience every possible experience, for I live forever. Being that I know all things,
I know the out come ofeach experience I will have. The whole of myself understands this,
but now I shall take the whole of myself and go back to sleep, and forever allow the parts of myself to dream/play forever.

Denise has had a interesting experience. One of her friends had been at the graveyard visiting her mother's grave.. The vietnam Memorial Moving Wall was there. The friend felt very ill when she was near the wall. Later that day she saw the image of a redheaded young man asking for help. His name was Andy. The friend called Denise, Denise called me. We met the friend at the graveyard. I found the young man's name on the wall. He was born in 1944 and died in 1970. I obtained a printout on the young man. We found another grave of a WW1 soldier also named Andy. He was born in 18 something and died in 1985. We did a meditation with the old soldier leading the young soldier to the other side. Everything just seemed to fall into place-56on
Witches believe in the Law of Attraction, Harmony and Serenity, Power through Knowledge, the Wiccan Rede, and Progressive Reincarnation.
The Spirit Guides know best; it is to them their very being is owed.
Witches are in control of their lives as much as possible.
Witches do not feel guilty; that is, they learn from their mistakes and then use what is learned to their own advantage.
Witches love and life life to the fullest.
Witches are more interested in doing good, learning, and helping others than they are in a negative activities.
Witches use spells or rituals(power) only after working hard to arrive at a goal.
Witches are happy, serene people.
Witches respect and love every living thing.
Witches believe in not harming anyone, including themselves.
Witches believe in the Ultimate Deity.
Witches use stone-goddess for needed strength.
You need God-ess and God-ess needs you.
Witches also use "called-down" power.
Witches are good people, not the ogres Christians have made them out to be.
I believe in Witches; I believe I am a Witch.-56kc
Perhaps these persons would fall into the following categories, both based in fear:
Insecure individuals manifest certain characteristics, resulting in personality inclinations:
Impressable ------------------------------ False Values
Identification ----------------------------- Cultism/Sects
Recognition -------------------------------- Instant Justification
Ignorant individuals have characterics that result in these inclinations:
Malevolent ---------------------------------------Malice, Jealousy,Black Magic
Satanism, ----------------------------------------Judgemental Attitude
Intolerant ----------------------------------------Impatience, Confusion,
It would be differcult to place my trust in someone who has the inherent human characteristics,
someone who is harnessed by the fear that most often surrounds these qualities.-55xz

You will soon see a lot of people wearing Red on Fridays. Here's why.....The Americans, who support our troops, are the silent majority. We are not "organized" to reflect who we are, or to reflect what our opinions are. Many Americans, like yourself, and all their friends, simply want to recognize that Americans support our troops.Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is starting Friday and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every red -blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED. Word of mouth, press, TV -- let's see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at a University.
If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee ! that it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED - and make our troops know there are many people thinking! of their well-being. You will feel better all day Friday when you wear Red! So let's get the word out and lead by example;Wear RED on Friday's!I sent this out to everyone on my email list;hopefully, you will too.Wear Red on Fridays ...SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. FOR US, THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED!! GOD BLESS AMERICA
When I was little, I used to believe in the concept of one best friend, and then I started to become a woman. And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up, God would show you the best in many friends. One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man. Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom. Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be. One friend will say let's pray together, another let's cry together, another let's fight together, another let's walk a way together. One friend will meet your spiritual need, another your shoe fetish, another your love for movies, another will be with you in your season of confusion, another will be your clarifier, another the wind beneath> your wings. But whatever their assignment in your life, on whatever! the occasion, on whatever the day, or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back, or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself ... those are your best friends. It may all be wrapped up in one woman, but for many it's wrapped up in several . one from 7th grade, one from high school, several from the college years, a couple from old jobs, several from church, on some days your mother, on others your sisters, and on some days your daughters or sons. So whether they've been there 20 minutes or 20 years, Pass this on to the women that God has placed in your life to make a difference. Thank You for being my Friend. Goddess Bless You !!!

1. We practice Rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal Quarters and Cross Quarters.
2. We recognize that out intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. We seek to live in harmony with Nature, in ecological balance offering fulfillment to life and consciousness within an evolutionary concept.
3. We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary, it is sometimes called "supernatural"; but we see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to all.
4. We conceive of the Creative Power in the Universe as manifesting through polarity-as masculine and feminine-and that this same Creative Power lies in all people, and functions through the interaction of the masculine and feminine. We value neither above the other, knowing each to be supportive of the other. We value sex as pleasure, as the symbol and embodiment of life, and as one of the sources of energies used in magical practice and religious worship.
5. We recognize both outer worlds and inner, or psychological, worlds- sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, Inner Planes, etc., and we see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena and magical exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment.
6. We do not recognize any authoritarian hierarchy, but do honor those who teach, respect those who share their greater knowledge and wisdom, and acknowledge their greater wisdom, and acknowledge those who have courageously given of themselves in leadership.
7. We see religion, magick, and wisdom in living as being united in the way one views the world and lives within it-a world view and philosophy of life, which we identify as Witchcraft, the Wiccan Way.
8. Calling oneself "witch" does not make a Witch-but neither does heredity itself, nor the collecting of titles, degrees, and initiations. A Witch seeks to control the forces within him/her-self that make life possible in order to live wisely and well without harm to others and in harmony with Nature.
9. We believe in the affirmation and fulfillment of life, in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness giving meaning to the Universe we know, and our personal role within it.
10. Our only animosity toward Christianity, or toward any other religion or philosophy of life, is to the extent that its institutions have claimed to be "the only way" and have sought to deny freedom to others and to suppress other ways of religious practice and belief.
11. As American Witches, we are not threatened by debates on the history of the Craft, the origins of various terms, the legitimacy of various aspects of different traditions. We are concerned with our present and our future.
12. We do not accept the concept of absolute evil, not do we worship any entity known as "Satan" or "the devil" as defined by the Christian tradition. We do not seek power through the suffering of others, nor accept that personal benefit can be derived only be denial of another.
13. We believe that we should seek within Nature that which is contributory to our health and well-being.

One night about 8pm while my cousin and I were in a room upstairs playing, an old man suddenly appeared in the rocking chair in the corner of the room. My cousin immediately ran downstairs, but I stayed in the room, unafraid because I have had previously experiences with ghost. I walked right up next to the chair where the old man was sitting and asked," where did you come from"? He smiled in responce. Hearing a noice, I turned around expecting to find my cousin. No one was there. When I turned back around to face the old man, he was gone. He just vanished, though he looked solid, like a normal person in every detail. A couple weeks later, I was looking through a photo album and was shocked to find the very same man sitting in the rocking chair. I asked my mom who it was in the picture. She told me It was my Grandfather, who had died before I was born.
Two or three years ago, I woke about 1:30am and was astounded to hear my mothers voice. I could hear her talking quite plainly. I listened as she came out of the bathroom, walked across the landing at the top of the stairs, opened the bedroom door, and closed it behind her. I could hear her speaking until 1:45am. It was so eerie. I could not understand waht I was hearing. I have had some other experiences. Twice I have seen a mysterious mist in my mother's bedroom. I thought the bedroom was on fire. I walked into the wall of mist and breathed some in while trying to blow or wave it away.
Every morning about 1:00am. I used to switch on my tape recorder to tape sounds in the bedroom. You would not believe the sounds I captured on the tape: movement in the bedroom, and alot of static as something unseen moved passed the recorder.
I have not seen or heard anything since.
My mother must be at rest..
The United States Internal Revenue Service has issued a letter which recognizes Witchcraft as a Religion and which gives the Church and School of Wicca full church rightes.
This was the first time anywhere that Witchcraft had been officially recognized as a tax free religion.
While I was out playing and Dad was on call, TJ took his crayons and wrote on the wall. It's on the new paper you just hung in the den. I told him you'd be mad at having to do it again.
She let out a moan and furrowed her brow, Where is your little brother right now? She emptied her arms and with a purposeful stride, she marched to his closet where he had gone to hide.
She called his full name as she entered his room. He trembled with fear---he knew that meant doom for the next 10 minutes, she ranted and raved, about the expensive wallpaper and how she had saved.
Lamenting all the work it would take to repair, she condemned his actions and total lack of care. The more she scolded, the madder she got, then stomped from his room, totally distraught.
She headed for the den to confirm her fears. When she saw the wall, her eyes flooded with tears. The message she read pierced her soul with a dart. It Said " I love Mommy" surrounded by a heart. Well the wallpaper remained, just as she found it, with an empty picture frame hung around it. A reminder to her, and indeed to all, take time to read the handwritting on the wall.

Curse formed out of the ashes of Caledonia, a goth-rock group which included Mikaela and Robert, and ultraviolet, an all-girl punk band featuringThea on guitar and lead vocals. After Caledonia's demise, Mikaela swore off bands, concentrating instead on solo performances with autoharp. A year later Thea and Kevin approached Mikaela about forming a new band. Casting trepidation to the winds, they booked some studio time, went in and jammed and Curse was born. Everything you listen to comes out in your music whether you like it or not says Kevin, Music is universal...Mikaela points out It's the language of the Gods. Mikaela is a High Priestess in North Star Craft, which traces it's lineage through the Gardnerian and Minoan Sisterhood traditions. Thea is a vegetarian for about 18 years, trying to tread lightly on the planet.
At present Curse is working on songs for their second album, while continuing to play shows in and around New York. They are also looking for a label and representation. Just because we've been able to do so much on our own doesn't mean were not looking for talented help, says Mikaela. For futher developments keep an eye on their website at www.curseonline.com And if you find yourself in New York be sure to catch their live show.

and the chicken is done. But since it is summer
do you really want to use an oven?
Mother Moon, we call to you,
you can do much more than we can do,
Heal the Earth, it's scars, it's tears,
Heal the people of their hatred and ire,
call on the transformative element of fire,
Guide us, Mother to do what is right
For your sacred Earth on which we stand tonight.
It's about a story--a truly horrible and a terrible story. It contains all elements of the perfect horror story. Lust for power, greed, and politics are well represented in it. Torture, murder and betrayal. The people they describe make Adolph Hitler and Saddam Hussein look like boy scouts leaders..
For this story is not fiction. it is about real people, who were tortured and publicly murdered to make a holiday for the masses. The tortures that have been discovered are still fit material for nightmares. It ranges from sleep deprivation( waking the witch), to red hot nails under the fingernails, and squeeze devices. Or even a cauldron of rats fastened upside down in contact with stomach. When heated they ate their way though the victim. After being tortured in secret for months and years, the victims were then publicly tortured and finally executed in the most vile and terrible way possible; by being burned. Prisoners were brought out in plain view for everyone to see. Then hot pincers were used to tear off sensitive living flesh that the judges could define. Legs, arms were broken or shattered on the wheel. Some were impaled by driving a sharp rod into the anus; some had their intestines burned in front of them and then the victims were burned. They should not die in public torture but instead would scream their last as the flames engulfed them, provided they did not have their tongues torn out.
Or a red hot iron driven down their throat so that screaming was impossible.
As the story continues they trace it's roots and name some of the villians, the demoniacally inspired church and leaders of times. They will mention some of those victims who were burned for a medieval holiday.
They also will speak of today, the madness and the lies continue for some of the same reasons that caused the Burning times of the 16th and 17th centuries, when the craze reached it's peak.
Today lust for power leads fear-mongering Christian cult leaders to utter medievil threats so that little children will have nightmares and there will be a better head count in the congrgation and a bigger take in collection plate. Hilter and his cronies were rightly named the villians of the piece, and the jews who were tortured and murdered were acknowledged to be victims. In the Frost's story the victims were labeled denizens of the Evil Empire, percieved as fit candidates for further mental torture and loss of property and the terrorist call thme selves the good guys.
You must understand that these ghastly villians protested and still protest today that they were and are doing righteous battle against the enemies of God. They saved Witches from the grip of evil by torturing and killing them. Those victims were ordinary people like you and me. In this story it is we the people who are the real good guys, and we have finally had our fill. We have sufficient power now to say 'Enough! The terrorist shall be named terrorist, and their crimes shall be noised abroad" We speak for the Witches, the people, the erstwhile victims, the genuine good guys. Over 80 percent of those who were judically murdered were women.
Unlike many writers, the Frost's know and acknowledge their bias; Though before they begin they do make one apology and one only, and that is, If they are cynical about the actions of the leaders of "those proudly phallic moral orders, either circumcised or uncircumcised" they deserve it; for we speak for the Witches, those who were burned and those still being shot at by their neighbors, thier employers, and their goverment.
witchcraft in 1972. This was the first federal recognition of legitmacy of the craft in the United States. In it's time the Church has handled over half a million queries and enrolled nearly fifty thousand students. Many of it's students now play leading roles in the worldwide craft community. Question, Can a new magical non-hierarchical religion survive the enmity of corrupt and the bigoted politicians, businessmen and churchmen?
The answer is yes-- for the craft is not only surviving, but it is growing.
I have been studing under the Frost's for around 20 years. I have taken and learned many of their courses they offer. From learning the craft of the Wise to Astral Travel. They offer a great selection of courses. And they are as close as the mail box.
I know many of you think that this is a religion can't be learn on paper, but how wrong they are. This is not a made up religion that you make up in your head as you go. It is written. As a Bible, prayer book, almanac. A guide for you to follow. Yes in the years past it was a way of life . For those who stayed on this path it was possible to teach your young. But can you honestly say one of those were you? I bet not. All in honesty I was brought up as Pagan/Blackfoot, but later to realize the books and lessons were confirming everything I was taught and more. It is a big help when one of your parents or even both were into paganism and you have had the chance to learn from them, perhaps they were taught by their parents. Gavin and Yvonne have over 70 years combined experience teaching and studing Witchcraft. The bring this combined knowledge to you in over 20 books and pamplets as well as offering 13 courses. They have eouched the lives of millions of people. Now it is your chance to put that experience to work for you.
An it Harm None, Do as you will.
I never attempted to make a convert, nor wished to change anothers creed.
I have judged of others' religion by their lives,
for it is from our lives, and not from our words,
that our religion must be read.

Perhaps you can actually find a Wiccan that would be interested in teaching you. But you have to becareful there too. Some just proclaim to be a Witch. Don't be afaid to ask for crudentuals. If they do not have any, becareful. No one can properly teach you with out them. There are alot of Fluff Bunnies out there. And you need to find out which witch is right for you. A true Flamenca or Flamen is truely hard to find, but there are a few out there.
Someone thats is new to the Craft has a long road ahead of them but I will guarantee it will be like a rollarcoaster ride. And it can't be taught by someone that has only been in it for a year. After all they were only on the path just a short time and they would not know everything ot to begin to know everything. So just becareful whom you befriend. Once you start consuming knowledge you wont be able to stop. Believe me nothing will stop you, Nothing will be as important as learning the Craft of the Wise. It will be your life. So you can't just say I don't have time right now to do this. This will be time consuming, but just think of the rewards you will have. The ability to make things right.
What did you think Witchcraft was?
So many Ideas have gotton attached to the name of The Craft.
Even definitions is an ongoing effort.
Just defining what we mean when we say Witch-Craft and Witch.
If we can review some basic definitions with you, It makes my job easier.
So here goes a glimpse inside a Witch's Lexicon....
Witchcraft is an old religion:
The Craft, a way of thinking about Deity.
As a Religion it encourages growth in the individual preparing the way for the spirit to reach toward our guide. The Elders Ones, and toward the Ultimate Deity.
Witchcraft implies a set of ethics summed up in the Wiccan Rede.
Eight words the wiccan rede fulfill..
If it Harm None,
Do what you Will..
I never really studied The Craft growing up,
But the Bible just didn't work for me.
It was then that I took a serious look at studing of Wicca. I was both surprised and pleased
to discover that Wicca was much more then the practice of Magic..
Wicca is very sincere and caring.. Down to Earth Religion.
The true Magic of Wicca has turned out to be the Lord and the Lady, the caring and sharing,
The desire to explore and the understanding the ability to live in harmony with ourselves and with Nature..
Therefore, from this presented above. It is simple to see that Satanism and Witchcraft are two very different things. Nor are they related. Nor of the same.
Wicca is the Five pointed Star, The Pentagram.. In the center of everything is the Deity.
Like gravity, the Deity is impersonal. It treats everyone alike. It transcends gender and human
I believe in the unknowable God who is the sum of all creation. God is not black nor white. God has no gender. And the God and Goddess who are reflections of that power. They were conceived by the need of the Ancient Wise Ones, and born of their knowledge and faith as Witches.
Wicca is a Church and a way of life..
Who profits from all this, Rarely does the Parishioner..
It is full of boundless choices.
The choice to learn and grow through knowledge, A choice to search for that which pleases ourselves, A choice to be different from the normal, A choice to be.. All this and so much more comes to us because " WE CHOOSE" to belong and to be Witches..
The bottom line is Wicca is chosen! And chosen by you...

Dear Friend, The police help protect us from criminals and terrorists, but do you want FBI agents and local police spying on environmental, anti-war, political, and faith-based groups? Do you feel safer knowing they might be spying on you? Documents obtained by the ACLU through the Freedom of Information Act prove that the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Forces are collecting files on peace groups, and intimidating anti-war activists through aggressive questioning. Could the FBI, the task forces they operate with, and local police be spying on you? We don't know if they are, but to help you find out, take this short quiz. After you take the quiz, join the ACLU to help us uncover the truth about spying by the FBI and local police and put a stop to it. Collecting files on anti-war and environmental groups has nothing to do with fighting terrorism and will not make us safer. If anything, diverting FBI and local law enforcement resources to monitor political and religious __expression will weaken our ability to fight terrorism. Infiltration of peaceful groups will have a chilling effect on many Americans - without making us safer - as these cases demonstrate: Sarah Bardwell was an intern at the American Friends Services Committee when four agents of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, accompanied by Denver police officers in SWAT gear, suddenly appeared at her Denver home last summer. The agents asked Bardwell three questions about upcoming protests and whether she knew of anyone who was planning any crimes related to upcoming protests. Scott Silber is an organizer for the Service Employees International Union and a student activist at Colorado University. Last July, the FBI called Silber and asked him to come to their offices. Documents obtained by the ACLU through the Freedom of Information Act show that Silber was under surveillance as recently as last August.Reverend Raymond Payne, a Methodist Minister from Kentucky, was stopped last October by Canadian border officials. They interrogated Rev. Payne for more than an hour as he attempted to enter Canada for a vacation. According to Rev. Payne, the officials informed him that the interrogation was triggered because he was the subject of an FBI file. He has never been arrested, been charged with a crime, or even participated in a protest. To protect the freedom of Americans to pursue their right to peaceful protest, the ACLU is conducting a nationwide campaign to expose and limit FBI spying on people and groups simply for speaking out or practicing their faith. Help us stop this abuse of the First Amendment by joining the ACLU today. Your membership gift will enable us to file Freedom of Information Act requests across the country, uncover and publicize spying by the FBI and local police, and put a stop to it. If you agree that the tools to fight terrorism should not be misused to target innocent people across America who have done nothing more than criticize the government or practice their religion, get involved today. Thank you for your support.

It is my right.
In wisdom I rule my thought;
It is my duty.
In compassion I instruct mankindBy word and act, in righteousness and trueth.
It is my gift to his future,Freely given!
By the grace of heaven,By the favor of the GodsI hold the power in my hands;
Healing waters, and help for the needy!
Fires of Hell, and a scourge for the unruly;
Let no seeker of enlightmentLeave my presence unaided:
Let no evil doer have his Pleasure Upon my world.
I am Priestess of Infinite spaceConsecrated to the path,Minister to all life:
I shall not return,
From my quest, except as a Goddess!
Let the profane take heed and beware!
By the grace of heaven And the Gods of my Ancestors:
I AM A WITCH

love, compassion and learning.
It allows us to examine our lives and how we treat others,
or life experience to change and become better persons.
We believe it is a true, honest an down to earth way of life..
Not unreachable goals we can never have or know.
Superstitious grooms are bringing brides to a castle in Serbia
to see if they weigh more than a broom or less..
Apparently if the bride weighs less with a broom, then she is a Witch.
Is anyone weighing the men?
One can receive an authentic certificate saying one is not a Witch if
person and broom weighed together weigh more than the person alone on the scale.

Blue currants of power rise in me
Tides of change flow through meI call to you,
oh depths of wisdom Let me bathe in your happy laughing brook
And flow like you in growth.

as my magic is cast bonded are we my familiar and me
In love In life forever
With goodness and love, grant us strength to heal and to grow,
share your fertility with us here below.
Show us your power to sprout things from seed.
Help us all here.In our time of need.
We worship your symbol of the moon.
And pray to our Mother to grant us this boon.

Would you attend?
Would you donate monies to keep it going?
What would the town say?
Would they try to burn it down?
Could they even try?
Would it be against the law?
Have you ever wanted just to find out what it would be like?
Could you learn a craft, like to make your own tools?
I think it would give Wicca a new meaning. We all could learn not to be afraid. We could join WARD, Witches Against Religious Discrimination.. We could stand tall and Harm None..
It is a great movie.. It does not exploit Witchcraft in any way.
it is about a self proclaimed Witch who comes to a small town of Steadfast
and opens a homeless shelter. But a few people in this town do not like it
especially when it is ran by a Witch, and try to run her out of town, no matter
what the cost.. And doesn't matter who gets hurt. The movie stars Walter Koenig
of Star Trek.. It is a great down to earth movie. You should try to get to see it.
Drawing Down the Moon is a thought-provoking, action packed modern fable..
Dannielle lives in Wisconsin, where she lives with her Husband (whom which I have never had the pleasure of meeting) And her son Johnny which is a fine interesting young man.
She is in the process of writting a new book called Jane the Ripper. And I can't wait for that one to be published. Danielle keep up the great work. I also look forward to see any other book or writtings you may be thinking about.
I expect to hear wonderful things about her.

I ask that you look at nature. Seed from pharaohs' tombs have grown after thousands of years of dormancy. Isn't that more of a miracle than the Magic of the bread and wine. I don't try to convert anyone into Celtic Wicca or to provoke an argument. It is the definition of our beliefs for those who wish to practice the old religion. I ask that you take your time and give Wicca a fair trial. You have been exposed to a lifetime of propaganda that stems from a year in the life of a man. Written by four other men two generations later in another land. So don't be impatient. I don't believe in the cataclysmic savings and conversions of other religions. If we have planted a seed in your heart and in your mind, gently nuture it. Don't let it die. And don't force it to grow in a hothouse environment. Wicca may not transform your world in 24 hours, but after all, what will? Give Wicca an open-minded trial period. You will like it.
I died as a mineral and became a plant;
I died as a plant and rose to animal;
I died as animal and I was Man.
Why should i fear? When was I less by dying?
Yet e'en from this I must pass on
To soar with spirits blest;
All except God doth perish..
Hell is in the mind of Man, Hell is an earth plane:
