Book of Shadows

Wow! It’s been a while since I have written. Forgive me everyone. It’s one thing after another with the health and all. So we all know that the Book of Shadows (BOS) is one of the most important tool to the Witch. However, how many do you think you should have? Do you think there should be a set number? Should there be a certain way you should style it? What are your thoughts?

Well here are my thoughts. First, I think there is no set number on the BOS. You could have 50 if you wanted. It would be a lot to keep up with, but hey you’re the witch and if you want to work it that way, go for it. Second, no, there is no set number. So if there is someone saying that there is a set number, tell them they are wrong or just don’t talk to them. Third, there is no certain style. I watched a bunch of witch movies when I was young and I always loved the traditional black grimoire looking book. However, nowadays, the BOS can be a notebook till you can purchase something else, it can be a plain journal, a scrapbook, or any other things.

The reason why I wanted to start this conversation is because I am starting a smaller BOS. My bigger one is locked away somewhere and I am taking the time to make a small BOS because it is important to me to have the correspondences and all the information I need. It is small enough to fit in my purse so that it can come with me. It is a black journal and I am using black pen for it. For the correspondences, like the sun phases, I made a sun sign at the end.

So use your imagination. Let me know what you think.

Merry Beltane!

Merry Beltane everyone! Goodness I didn’t know that Beltane was coming up so fast! Hopefully, Summer Solstice won’t be like this. I hope this day will be good for everyone, both Wiccan and non-Wiccan. Blessings to you all. Unlike everyone, I’m having health issues, but I am still celebrating. I love all of you and I send you all prayers of good health and wellness. Blessings again!

Stop judging me

Greetings,

Today is Easter, Happy Easter to those who celebrate by the way. So as you know by the title and those who know personally, I am an Egyptian Witch/Wiccan. Personally, I do not celebrate Catholic holidays but maybe a few times a year. This includes Christmas and Easter. Usually I get my Sister, her husband, and definitely my nephew a card. This Easter was truly an eye-opener. As I mentioned I just got out of HealthSouth, a rehabilitation center after a difficulty with a bad seizure. Only my nephew came with my parents when they picked him up. My sister nor her husband came to see me. Anyway, I walked into the kitchen and my brother-in-law started talking about my stay in the center and how he was sure that I was glad I was out. He then switched the talk over to my weight and how I looked like I lost like 20 lbs. After that he got into something about praying to Jesus more or accepting him instead of praying to my dark god. I walked away and was very upset. I sat at the table and was upset, but tried to keep it in. But my sister got on me and said that I should try to accept Jesus more. I couldn’t stand it and had to go outside.

If you believe in Jesus that is fine. I have no problem. I do not disrespect it. However, do not insult me and do not in any way, insult my deities. Just because you don’t believe in them does not mean they are dark, and just because you don’t believe in them doesn’t meant they aren’t there. You have in no way any right to disrespect me. I am not any kind of Satanist (though I do not know of their religion so I won’t judge) or negative religion. If my soul ends up somewhere bad, at least I will know that I based my judgements on my view of a person’s soul. Not their outward appearances, etc… I’m not a perfect person, but I will not be attacked either. I will tell you do not judge by anything other than the soul, for if you do you will find yourself in trouble. Blessings to you all.

Long time away…

Greetings my friends,

Well, I would like to apologize for the long time away. I haven’t been ignoring the blog, or I haven’t trying to at least. March and the beginning of April have been especially terrible for me, health-wise. In March I had two bad seizures which sent me to the hospital. The first time I was there for nine days. The next time I was there for four days. So I got out of the hospital on the 29th of March and they sent me to a rehabilitation center on the same day. I was there till April 12th. I was in terrible condition for the first week. I was weak in some parts of my body. When you have a seizure you tend to stiffen when you have them. I also had some delusions. It was a crazy time during my time there. Up until my last few days, I wasn’t able to go to the bathroom alone or anything like that. It was crazy. I’m just glad I’m out. It’s not that I don’t appreciate it, but I’m glad that I feel free. I will talk soon. Have a good night. Happy Easter!

Another long miss

Greetings everyone,

First, let me say that I am so sorry that I have not been as active as I should have been. Earlier this month I had a Grand-Mal or Tonic Clonic seizure. I was in the hospital for six days and believe me, it was not fun. I was intubated (they stick a tube down your throat) for three days and was sedated for two, I finally woke up the day before I was extubated (when you have the tube taken out). When I woke up, it felt like it had been 20 minutes, but it had been two days. I was scared. I learned they had sedated me. Now that I am out, I am in a lot of pain and I still have pain and bruises all over my body, though they aren’t as bad as they were when I left. Thank Lord Anubis and Lady Bast.

Next, I would like to say that I hope everyone has had a great month so far. Appreciate all that you have and don’t get angry over stuff that is stupid. Believe me, I do get angry over stupid stuff. I have wept because of that sedation because I didn’t know that two days passed and I could have died. So remember those you love and keep them in mind everyday.

Last, at least for now, don’t forget the deities. They love us and created us, at least helped create us. Never forget they had and have a hand and still have a hand in our lives. Appreciate and love them as well.

These are my thoughts for this month. At least for now. Thanks for visiting.

Been missing

Hello everyone,

This month hasn’t been a very good month for myself or my family. We’ve been sick and my dad had surgery last week on his kidney. He had some kidney stones that had to be removed. Thank the Lord and Lady that it went well. He is still in pain, but hopefully it will go away soon. This month I got daith piercings in both of my ears. It seems they help with general headaches, however, with migraines it’s not really much of a help. I went to the E.R. the week before last because of a migraine. Like I said, it hasn’t been a good month. I’m hoping and praying that March will be a much better month for us. I will start updating the blog more. Forgive me for my lack of updates. Thanks for following.
