Card of the Day – Ace of Cups – Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Success! I believe I have said before that this really is my favorite Tarot card of the whole deck, not just this depiction, but in any deck. When you think of life, and various forms of fulfillment, which feels better to you? Financial, emotional, mental, or passion, if that is how one chooses to define Pentacles, Cups, Swords, and Wands, then I would choose Cups any day. After all, when we have emotional fulfillment, the others do not seem to matter as much. Let that sink in for a minute.

Today represents something, whether big or small, which allows you to see your cup of life as overflowing, opening up the five senses, and filling you with positive emotions. In this Meme-driven world in which we live, mine would have to say, “It is not about whether the cup is half-full, or half-empty, the cup can always be refilled. Enjoy…

Card of the Day – 7 of Wands – Monday, March 26, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Interesting that we see this card today, after yesterday’s 5 of Wands. This is a defensive stance, and I would say, depending upon who you are, it can be a good thing, or not. There will be those using their soapbox to stand up for what is right, whether they feel their opinion is popular or controversial. Then there will be those who see the tide shifting, and that they are alone, perhaps backed into a corner; they are probably the ones who need to worry, as the crowd forms, and there is no room for escape.

On a very personal level, you can utilize the energy of the 7 of Wands to keep on plugging away, never giving an inch; you may not see today as a day of progress, but your determination to not go backward is equally important. You have come too far to back down now…

Ritual Blend of 9 Sacred Witchcraft Trees

The Witch & Walnut

ritual blend of 9 sacred witchcraft treesI’ve briefly touched on this blend on this blog as well as social media. This blend in made from the combination of 9 sacred Witchcraft trees that is part of our tradition. There are additional ingredients added, I won’t be including a list of the extra ingredients.

We begin foraging for this blend during the Winter of the new year, followed by spring, summer, autumn and completed at the Winter Solstice. Each part of the tree must be collected during each season and from the same tree. An offering is left at each tree every time we come collect which that includes the root, bark, bud, leaf/flower/berry/nut.

The trees that we use for this are the following:

  1. Oak
  2. Rowan
  3. Apple
  4. Birch
  5. Willow
  6. Hawthorn
  7. Walnut
  8. Yew
  9. Maple

During each season after the collection is completed a ritual is performed including an offering of blood, milk, honey and coins. The collected items…

Crystals for Boosting Energy

Rocky Mountain Medium Canmore

The inside of an Abalone shell.

*While there are many crystals that can boost energy and bring feelings of stamina, motivation, and alertness, these are some of my favourite go-tos for that purpose. I find that crystals that are orange and yellow are good choices for bringing a boost of energy, as they stimulate the sacral and solar plexus. Red crystals bring stamina as well, and they are good for grounding and strength, but I find more of an energy-stimulating effect from the orange and yellow crystals (crystals can affect everyone differently though). I may add more to this list later, but for now I think it is a good start. Realize also that crystals are not a substitute for medical or psychological advice or therapies, they are simply complementary (but realize also that there is no scientific evidence for their effectiveness).*

*Crystals for Boosting Energy:

1. Amber

Significance of Six Tastes in Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, it is incredibly important to taste our foods, our herbs – our lives. Rasa, the Sanskrit word for taste, has a number of potent meanings, among them: experience, enthusiasm, juice, plasma (as in rasa dhatu), and essence. These diverse meanings only hint at the significance of taste within the Ayurveda tradition. Rasa is, in a very real way, the essence of life and quite literally affects every aspect of our being – from structure and physiology, straight through to our overall state of mind and consciousness.

Pāli Word a Day for March 25, 2018 — pabhāsa — shining, splendour, beauty

Yo ca mettaṃ bhāvayati
Appamāṇaṃ paṭissato
Tanū saṃyojanā honti,
Passato upadhikkhayaṃ.

Boundless loving-kindness
Seeing the destruction of clinging,
The fetters are worn away.

Card of the Day – 5 of Wands – Sunday, March 25, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Why can’t everyone just get along? There is this feeling of people not wanting to play right…this is more on a global, political level, but, as with everything, this tension can certainly have a trickle-down effect. There are planetary aspects in play this weekend which can stir up conflict on many levels, but the question is whether or not it is worth engaging.

To say the least, this will be an interesting Mercury Retrograde, presenting struggles of its own as we go along and retrace our steps. Know that you do not need to best anyone, you are not in competition with anyone, and you do not need to attend every argument to which you are invited. Any personal conflicts which you may be experiencing will work themselves out in the coming days, so don’t let whatever is happening around you ruffle your feathers and cause your blood pressure to…

Melchizedek Meditation:  GRAIL CODES OF THE SACRED ROSE OF CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS

Welcome precious hearts, this is Anrita Melchizedek, and what I would like to offer you at this time of moving into the Equinox energies, is this really beautiful transmission that you can step into, called the Ignition of the Grail Codes of the Sacred Rose of Christ Consciousness. With the Flame of Divine Love now activated within the hearts of all awakened Souls upon this sacred earth, we are able to deepen into the embrace and love and appreciation of ourselves and others upon this sacred earth. With this, we step into a new flow and balance within our daily lives we Ignite the Grail Codes of the Sacred Rose of Christ Consciousness within our Christed Hearts, and draw to us the Overlighting of the Divine Feminine deities of Creation.

In this transmission, we are invited into Mother Mary’s Temple of the Immaculate Heart to deepen our journey along the Path of the Rose, the Path of Divine Love, through the Divine Feminine. As we activate the Grail Codes of the Sacred Rose of Christ Consciousness we merge with the goddess archetypes through the Overlighting of the Sisterhood of the Rose. Mother Mary steps forward with the archetypal energy of the Mother Queen, activating the Red Rose of Love and Beauty and Passion within our Christed Hearts. Lady Isis steps forward with the archetypal energy of the High Priestess activating the Pink Rose of Appreciation and Gratitude within our Christed Hearts. Mary Magdalene steps forward with the archetypal energy of the Wise Woman activating the White Rose of Purity and Innocence within our Christed Hearts. Lastly, Lady Venus steps forward with the archetypal energy of the Lover activating this beautiful Orange Rose of Desire and Enthusiasm within our Christed Hearts.

As we purify our lower mind and lower bodies as these open hearts and sacred Flames of Divinity, we release the vestiges of any perceived levels of separation or blame, unforgiveness or judgment within our hearts, embracing the Pathway of Divine Love, the Path of the Rose. Through a series of Light transmissions, we experience a renewed balance between our Divine Masculine and Feminine spirits, embracing and integrating all aspects of ourselves within our Christed Hearts, within the Sacred Rose of Christ Consciousness.

Card of the Day – 4 of Swords – Saturday, March 24, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Can we just call this a day of rest? What a perfect weekend card. A time out, taking a break, a short respite. Regroup, recharge, and recover…three very appropriate words for Mercury retrograde.

What is important to remember, when you see the 4 of Swords appear, is that the issues hanging over you will still be there later. So go ahead and take a break!

See you here tomorrow!

Kāyena saṃvaro sādhu; sādhu vācāya saṃvaro;

Card of the Day – 10 of Pentacles – Friday, March 23, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

If there has been a prevalent theme in the world, in fact, in life itself, in the last month, or so, it would be generations. You do not need to look very far to see both the differences, and the commonalities, between them. We are living in a time which is earmarked by great changes. They are trying to happen, both personally, and globally.

It is always wise to use the wisdom gleaned from past experiences to forge a path for the future. As we see generations coming together, to discuss which path should be taken, let us all pray for a wise one which ensures the security of generations to come. The 10 of Pentacles is a card of wealth and security, but also of generations, so let the generations work together to bring the continuance of prosperity for future generations which do not yet exist.
