Animal Guide Meditation

Animal Guide Meditation

Meeting Your Animal Guides

There are many ways to finding out what your animal guide or guides are. But when you make the journey, it is best to meet one at a time in order to make the most of the visit.

My favourite way and most recommend are through a special meditation journey. That is, a meditation with a specific purpose and intent. As usual, grab your journal so you can write down your experience as soon as you’ve finished. You don’t want to forget anything.   When you have completed your journey, start your research about your particular animal. You might want to pull in their essence during your daily events, so pick a calendar, a picture, a statue or whatever you like.  

The most important part to this meditation is to keep an open mind.

Don’t go into this with preconceived ideas or perceptions!   Animal Guide Meditation Since this is a special meditation, you may want to prepare your meditation space in a special way. Add a few ritualistic events, such as lighting a white candle and saying a prayer stating your intent for this meditative session. You may want to decorate your space with several animal statues or books about a variety of animals. Once you meet your animal guide, you can remove these generic items and replace them with specific ones of your personal animal spirit(s).  

Once you are all set and prepared, this is what you do. Take your time; try to imagine as much detail as possible. And it can’t be stressed enough how important it is not to go into this meditation with pre-conceived ideas about what you would LIKE your guide to be. Keep an open mind and an open heart.

Sit in a comfortable position, one that you can sustain for about 30-45 minutes.

Close your eyes and take in a deep cleansing breath. Fill your lungs to their fullest capacity. Then release the breath through your mouth and push all the air out of your body. Take in 3 deep breaths through the nose, imagine the white light from the universe coming into your lungs and collecting at your solar plexus.

With all 3 exhales, image all the stress, anxiety and negativity you have leaving your body carried out to the universe on a gay smoke where it can be dissipated and no longer do harm to anyone. As you exhale, imagine the events of the day or week floating out of your body. Put these worries aside and begin to relax your entire body and mind. Feel the tension in your muscles begin to subside. Begin at your solar plexus and imagine the white light moving up and down your body from this point. Imagine the warmth of the energy as it passes through your muscles and organs. Feel the tingling sensations as the light moves down to your toes and up your body to the top of your head. Imagine your entire body engulfed by this white divine light, from the inside out.

Say a prayer once more asking your guides and teachers to come to you and to help with the purpose of this mediation. State your intention clearly and ask ‘God’ to help you with your meditative journey. Don’t forget to thank them up front for their efforts.

This step takes a little practice, don’t worry if you can’t do this for any extended period of time, but at least give it a try. Keep your eyes closed, but look up at the pineal gland. This is a small gland located in the middle of your forehead, just above the brow. (This is also considered to be the position of your third eye and is therefore the gateway to higher conscious realms). Try to keep your eyes focused on this point. The muscles around your eyes may become sore as you stretch them upward, so don’t overdo this at first. As you practice, this step will become easier and easier to do.

As you focus on you’re third eye imagine your at the base of a tunnel, dimly light and slanted upward. Imagine your astral body (or your soul) standing up from your physical body and begin to walk toward and into the tunnel. See the lights on the walls and the texture of the floor as you walk through the tunnel. Imagine yourself moving upward.

Just ahead you see the opening to the tunnel and as you reach the top, you realize you are standing on a ledge high above your town. You feel propelled to raise your arms and step off the cliff. At the very second you leave the cliff, your astral body morphs into a beautiful bird and you begin to fly westward toward the Pacific.

Imagine the landscape passing below you, the mountains, rivers, forests and deserts. Imagine your soul flying over the coastline of California and out over the ocean. Now turn your wings a little to the north, flying toward the centre of the northern pacific.

doorway protection spell

Doorway Protection Spell

There are many uses for a doorway protection spell

It can be said that many newcomers to the craft will at some point in the early stages of their magical workings attempt to cast a spell.

I cannot state strongly enough here that the casting of any spell must be carried out with experience and care. A badly cast spell can bring harm to others as well as the caster. If you need advice of spell casting please contact one of the casters from this site who will be only too pleased to help you.

Spell to Protect a Doorway

For this spell to protect a doorway you will need: Besom or Decorative Broom (plain, or decorated to match your decor or the current season) Nail to hang it on (Hammer to mount the nail).

Doorway Protection Spell


For this spell to protect a door way after hanging it on the desired door you could say these words or make your own words up to suit. I prefer to write my own words as it adds a more personal touch to the magickal workings.

You could after hanging the besom or broom on the back of the door and say:

As you hang upon my door, remember what a door is for letting in and keeping out, is what a door is all about.

As we travel on our rounds, help us return safely to our grounds.
But whether we’re in or whether we’re out, Please keep want and trouble out.”

Make the sign of the banishing pentagram on the inside of the door, and the sign of the invoking pentagram on the outside.

Banishing Pentagram   The banishing pentagram is the star shape starting at the lower left point moving up to the top point. Always end on the same number you started on.

Invoking Pentagram – The invoking pentagram is the star shape starting at the top point and moving to the lower left. Always end on the same number you started on.

Cakes And Ale ritual

Cakes And Ale Ritual

Cakes And Ale Ritual you may ask? So what is this cake and ale thing

The wiccan communion that consists of natural beverage. Cakes and ale are offered to each participant at the end of a ritual or ceremony.

Personally I like the cakes and ale ceremony.

We carry out our rituals not just for the food and drink involved more as a tribute to the God and Goddess. A way for all to come together after an event to chill out and enjoy life. It is a great social function.
I have enjoyed with others many such events. I still do to this day after my own spell castings and magical workings.

We do not have to spend a fortune on food or drink for our Cakes and Ale ceremony.

Members contribute occasionally as much can and is made at home. The Ale part of it can consist of fruit juice, apple cider, water, wine, or even milk. I must admit that the crescent moon shaped biscuits are quite quaint. The whole idea in my mind is to put a spread on yes, but don’t knock yourself out in the process keep it humble, saves on the washing up loll.

If you have been raised as a Christian as I your church visits usually on a Sunday will probably had consisted of the holy communion service symbolizing the body and blood of Christ where the small round wafer thin piece of bread is given after which a sip of wine from a splendid silver or gold goblet. We are told through our readings that the cakes and ale ceremony was practiced by the early pagans thousands of years ago so it’s not a new thing. Even in Hinduism milk is used in communion service because cows are classed as sacred animals in Hinduism.

Not so very long ago I attended a coven meeting at Grantham and not really knowing the nature of the person preparing the food and ale with me being a fussy eater and all I decided to take my own to consume after the events of the evening. The evening rituals ended and we all gathered to eat drink and be merry and no one even gave a mention as to why I was consuming my own food, on the contrary I actually shared part of my food with the hostess, so if you are a bit picky with food as I just take along your own, less for the hostess to prepare as well. Must just mention that I find the cakes and ale a ritual in its self for me anyway, a chance for me to remember my dedication and invocation and cakes or bread should never contain artificial flavours or colouring. There are several good books on this subject one I would recommend is: Cakes and Ale for the Pagan Soul: Spells, Recipes, and Reflections from Neopagan Elders and Teachers, by, Patricia Telesco.

Cakes and Ale is a traditional ending to the Esbat or Sabbat ritual but nothing to say you cannot perform this act at the end of every ritual and ceremony as I do.

The “Cakes and Ale” Ritual is charged by breaking the bread, cake or biscuit while honouring the God and Goddess thanking the elements and finally, dissolving the circle. The cake representing the Earth and the physical while the wine is the representation of the spirit, so we are offering these gifts to thank the God and Goddess for being present in our lives, you can also include in your offerings Herbs: Rosemary, thyme each coven or solitary has his her own way… blessed Be.

coven guide introduction

Coven Guide Introduction

Welcome to the Coven Guide Category Introduction

Within this coven guide category we are striving to place items to enlighten the non-familiar reader with the ways of coven workings.

It must be said that there are covens out there that are not to everyone’s taste in some way shape or form. With the help of this coven guide section we therefore aim to hopefully point the unenlightened in the right direction regarding safety and the do’s and don’ts of joining any coven. We are not suggesting that all covens are wicked; on the contrary it is only the odd ones that the unenlightened has to be aware of. You will find good sound advice within this category to help you find just the right coven for you.

Just a quick note here:

If a coven you are thinking of joining asks you for money to entre, decline. All coven membership is to the best part free of charge. You may be asked for what is called a love offering, but this is optional.

Should you not find what you are looking for here please contact Kimberly or myself for further assistance on either email address below:

Chakras basics

Chakras Basics

Chakras basics is an interesting subject indeed

Your physical and spiritual bodies should be in balance so that you will have an optimal learning experience while on Earth.

Balance in this connotation is not staying upright and being able to walk a straight line, but rather keeping your chakras open to receive the universal life force. Understanding and using the light that surrounds you is a key to providing energy balance throughout your body.

Your body is surrounded by energy that appears in different colours.

Many people can actually see this energy which is referred to as an aura. The colours in your aura should be clear and bright and will change throughout the day depending on your mood, feelings, or mind set. Some of you who are holding onto anger and pain may have dark or muddy colours. Your aura will remain muddy until your state of negativity and suppressed emotions, fears and pain are released back into the universe.

Picture your chakras as whirling colours of bright energy that act as gateways for the intake of life source energy. If any chakra is blocked you can feel unbalanced or unwell. Below are the colour and location of each chakra and an abbreviated explanation of how a blocked chakra can make you feel.

1 The Root or Base Chakra is red and located at the base of the spine. This chakra assists with tasks related to the material and physical world. When blocked you may feel fatigue, have lower back pain, or frequent colds.

2 The Spleen Chakra is orange and located below the naval in the lower abdomen. The Spleen Chakra connects us to our sensing abilities and issues related to feelings. When blocked you may experience asthma, allergies, urinary problems or sensuality issues.

3 The Solar Plexus Chakra is yellow and located above the naval in the stomach area. This chakra balances intellect and ego power. If blocked you may have digestive problems, ulcers, diabetes, or nervousness.

4 The Heart Chakra is green and located in the center of the chest. It controls relationships, love, forgiveness and compassion. If blocked you may experience heart and breathing disorders,high blood pressure, or muscular tension.

5 The Throat Chakra is blue and is located in the throat area. The throat chakra controls expressing oneself and one’s beliefs, trust, and loyalty. If blocked you may experience thyroid imbalance, swollen glands, fevers and infections.

6 The Third Eye Chakra is indigo and is located in the middle of the forehead between the eyes. It controls trusting one’s intuition and insights and developing one’s psychic abilities. If blocked you may have mouth, jaw, tongue, neck and shoulder problems, hyperactivity or hormonal disorders.

7 The Crown Chakra is purple and is located at the top of the head. It controls our knowingness, dedication to the divine consciousness and trusting the universe. If blocked you can experience headaches, photosensitivity, neuralgia, right/left brain disorders and coordination problems.

To keep your aura bright and clear, work with the chakra colours.

Each day pick a colour and confirm your intention to be aware throughout your day. Often, we subconsciously choose which color and hence which chakra we should actively balance. If the colour of your clothes and the food choices you make throughout the day are all one colour this can be a subtle hint that a certain chakra needs some attention. Pay attention to these signs because they are like an early warning system. Throughout your day as you take note of your chosen colour, say to yourself, “I release all fear, pain and repressed emotions with love into the universe. “

Chakra balancing is especially good during meditation because you can focus your energy more easily.

To start, slowly examine each chakra to determine if it could use a little more attention than a general balancing exercise. If extra attention is needed, visualize the chakra colour and ask “what will bring this chakra into balance?” Focus on resolving the blockage. Examine your emotions, your thoughts, your fears and allow yourself to affirm your awareness of the issue. Infuse the chakra with bright white light and then consciously release the suppressed energy back into the universe. In some cases this cannot be accomplished during one meditation session. You should not worry about that; instead know that with each meditation you are working towards total release.

Each meditation should include a review of your chakras.

If extra chakra work is not needed, start your review with your base chakra. Focus on the colour, which in this case is red and with clear intent say “My base chakra is in balance and can receive the love of the universe.” Move up through each chakra repeating the same process.

Several good books have been written about chakras and I recommend that you check in your library, bookstore, or on electronic media to learn more.

Friendship Candle Spell

Friendship Candle Spell also Willow Tree Spell

Friendship Candle Spell

You Will Need:

Pink Candle.

Good Luck/Friendship Oil.

Pink silk Ribbon.

White Silk Ribbon.

Cast the Circle, Arrange altar, Invoke Goddess and God.

You will want to anoint the pink with Good Luck oil all the while thinking of the friends you want to make.
Imagine yourself laughing with them, going out with them. Really see yourself with them.

After your candle has been anointed, you may light it.
At this point you may call out the things that are important to you in a friend: honesty, trust, open mindedness, humour, whatever.

As you light the candle, see the flame as being the energy that burns between any two close friends.
When this is completed, take your two pieces of silk ribbon and weave them together.
Simply winding them around each other will do. While you do this, think of bringing that friend closer to you.

This binding process is reminiscent of pagan hand fasting rituals.

You are binding that friend to you, making them loyal to you, a way any good friend should be.
You do not want to bind a specific person to you, as that kind of magic is harmful since is harms the other person’s free will.
Only bind the idea of the perfect friend to you.

Once you have done this, tie the ribbon to the base of your candle as best as you can.

The candle’s light is a beacon to bring friendship to you and another person.
When this is done, you may wish to sit and meditate on the spell that you have just cast, sending your energies out to bring that perfect friend to you.
When you feel that your spell has been completed, then it has.
Let your candle burn all the way out and release your circle, thanking the Goddess and the God.

You may also like the Willow Tree Spell below.

Willow Tree Spell

Willow Tree Spell

On a Friday morn (8 a.m.) when the moon is waxing, dig the earth out of the footprint of the one you would have as a lover and dig it into the soil surrounding the roots of a willow tree, chanting the following charm as you do:

Many earths on Earth there be
whom I love mine own shall be.
Grow, grow willow tree
sorrow none unto me.
He the axe, I the helve,
he the cock, I the hen:
As my will, so mote it be!

Another charming one of similar ilk is the apple spell below.

The Apple Spell

The Apple Spell

Apples being a fruit sacred to Habondia, it is entirely appropriate that they should figure as much in love magic as they do. Here is the original spell translated from the workbook of a German witch in rhyming couplets.
On Friday early as may be, take the fairest apple from the tree, then in thy blood on paper white thine own name and true love’s write.
That apple thou shalt in two cut and for its cure that paper put,
with two sharp pins of myrtle wood join the halves till it seem good.

In the oven let it dry:
And wrapped in leaves of myrtle lie,
under the pillow of thy dear,
yet let it be unknown to her.

And if it a secret be she soon will show her love for thee.
Myrtle, like the apple, is also sacred to Habondia; also the spell is true to all the usual witch principles in its insistence on the fact that it must remain a secret, and the two apple halves with the paper sandwiched between remain undiscovered by the victim.

papier Mache offering bowl

Papier Mache Offering Bowl

Papier Mache offering bowl can be a great material to work with

You will need for this project the following

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup water
Newspaper or grocery bag strips (1 inch by 3 inches)
Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)
A Bowl of the size you wish to copy
Acrylic paints
Acrylic gloss finish (optional)

1. Tear paper into strips
2. Take a small, rounded bowl, set upside down, and cover it with petroleum jelly.
3. Mix equal parts of flour and water. A half cup of each is enough for two small bowls.
4. Dip each strip into the paste and apply the first layer of strips vertically, covering the bowls surface. Don’t worry about it being uneven or jagged. It can be easily trimmed with scissors after it is dried. Apply the second layer of strips horizontally and so on until you have 5 layers.
5. Allow to dry. This takes about one full day.
6. Separate the papier-mache from the bowl. Use the tip of a butter knife to separate the two. If the inside is not completely dry, allow to dry for another day.
7. Once completely dry, trim the edges with scissors.
8. Paint with acrylics. Add symbols or sponge. Use your imagination!
9. Allow to dry and then cover with the acrylic gloss finish (optional).

The bowl you’ve created can be used on your altar to hold herbs, potpourri or shell/stones, etc. It can be gently wiped out but don’t wash it with water or use it to hold liquids of any kind.
Note: The finer the paper and smaller the strips that you use the smoother the bowl will come out. I have done these in layers using a courser paper for the first 2 layers and using thinner paper for the top layers. This creates a finer and smoother appearance. It is also fun to experiment with different types of papers in different colours (tissue and crepe are great). Sometimes I don’t paint them at all and just use the different papers. Experiment and enjoy! 🙂

Different Witchcraft Paths

Different Witchcraft Paths

There Are many different witchcraft paths

Alexandrian Wicca

Founded in England during the 1960s, Alex Sanders referred to himself as the “King” of his Witches. The rituals are said to be modified Gardenarian.

British Wicca.

A mix of Celtic and Gardenarian beliefs. Most famous organization at this time is the International Red Garters. British Traditionals move mostly from within the Farrar studies (the famous Witch husband and wife from England.) They too are fairly structured in their beliefs, and train through the degree process. Their covens are also co-ed.

Celtic Wicca.

The use of a Celtic/Druidic pantheon mixed with a little ritual Gardnerian, and heavily stressing the elements, nature and the Ancient Ones. They had a vast knowledge of and respect for the healing and magickal qualities of plants and stones, flowers, trees, elemental spirits, the little people, gnomes and fairies.


Formally known as the Hecatine Tradition, this denomination of the Craft is Scottish in origin, and still preserves the unique festivals of the Scots.

Ceremonial Witchcraft.

Followers of this Tradition uses a great deal of ceremonial magick in their practices. Detailed rituals with a flavour of Egyptian magick are sometimes a favourite, or they may use the Qabbalistic magick.


First pinpointed by Margaret Murray in 1921 in “The Witch-Cult in Western Europe,” this term appears to include a mixture of various traditions. However, their prime focus in recent years is on the Goddess, and has been pegged as the “feminist” movement of the Craft.

Eclectic Wicca.

Look in any personals column in a Craft-oriented newsletter or journal and you will see this catch-all phrase. Basically, it indicates that the individual does not follow any particular Tradition, denomination, sect, or magickal practice. They learn and study from many magickal systems and apply to themselves what appears to work best. I happen to be an Eclectic Wiccan.

Gardnerian Wicca.

Organized by Gerald Gardner in England in the 1950s. Just why is this fellow so darned important? Gerald was one of the few people so determined that the Old Religion should not die that he took the risk of publicizing it through the media. Under all the hype, I truly believe he understood that the young needed the Craft as much as the Craft needed a new generation to survive.

Hereditary Witch.

One who can trace the Craft through their family tree and who has been taught the Old Religion by a relative who was living at the same time. Channelling doesn’t count. How far one has to go back on the family tree to meet the conditions of the first part of this definition is debatable. Family Trades (another name for Hereditary Witches) occasionally adopt individuals into their dynasty. This decision is never a light one, and usually stems from the lack of offspring to carry on the line, or the high regard they hold for the person in question. The ceremony is intricate and important. After all, it is not every day you can pick your relatives! It is much like the marriage of an individual into a family.

Kitchen Witch.

You will hear this term every once in a while. Basically, this type is one who practices by hearth and home, dealing with the practical side of religion, magick, the earth and the elements. There are some who groan loudly at this type of terminology, viewing it as degrading or simply inappropriate. Just remember that the Old Religion started somewhere, and most likely the kitchen (or cook fire) was the hub of many charms, spells, healings, and celebrations. After all, where does everyone congregate during the holidays? Grandma’s kitchen has always produced magickal memories for humanity; visions of Mother making that something special for a sick child still holds true today for many of us.

Pictish Witchcraft.

Scottish Witchcraft that attunes itself to all aspects of nature; animal, vegetable and mineral. It is a solitary from of the Craft and mainly magickal in nature with little religion.


Indigenous to South Central Pennsylvania. This is a system, not a religion, based on 400 year old Elite German magick. Pow-Wow has deteriorated to a great degree into simple faith healing. Although Pow-Wow finds its roots in German Witchcraft, few practicing Pow-Wows today in Pennsylvania follow the Craft or even know the nature of its true birth.


Founded by Raymond Buckland in 1973. Although of Saxon basis, it was authored by Raymond himself without breaking his original Gardnerian oath. Raymond Buckland’s contribution to the Craft is a significant one. Not only did he develop a Tradition that is more than acceptable to many individuals, he also has written a large volume of textbooks on different magickal aspects and practices of the Craft, thereby enhancing many lives in a positive direction.

Solitary Witch.

One who practices alone, regardless of Tradition, denomination, or sect. Solitaries come in various forms. Some were at one time initiated into a coven and eventually chose to extricate themselves from that environment and continue practicing a particular Tradition or sect by themselves.

A solitary can also be an individual who has no desire to practice with or learn from a coven structure, but still may adhere to a specific Tradition or sect through the teachings of another.

And finally, a solitary Witch can be a person who has decided to tough it out on their own, learning from books, networking, and fellow Witches of different Traditions. These people have the ability to pick themselves up and brush themselves off, and live to try again. More and more individuals are selecting the solitary path rather than that of group interaction.

Strega Witch.

Follows a tradition seated in Italy that began around 1353 with a woman called Aradia. Of all the traditional Witches, this group appears to be the smallest in number in the U.S.; however, their teachings are beautiful and should not be missed.

Teutonic Witch.

From ancient time the Teutons have been recognized as a group of people who speak the Germanic group of languages. Culturally, this included the English, Dutch, Icelandic, Danish, Norwegian and Swedish peoples. This is also known as the Nordic Tradition.

the Poppet

The Poppet

The Poppet is a small handmade (usually) figurine/s that can be used as a talisman or in spellwork

Poppets in the popular press tend to be linked with “bad” Witchcraft – the Voodoo doll for instance.

And of course there are undoubtedly some who will ignore the Rede’s instructions to “harm none, do what ye will”. But poppets are extremely useful to all Witches and the good aspects far outweigh the bad. No Witch should be without one!

Poppets come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. As always, there is no one right way or wrong way to make a poppet. Nowadays most common poppets are filled with herbs and incense. But pure Witchcraft practitioners will still use the practice of urine, blood, fingernails and hair.


The clay should be moulded into poppet shape making sure there is a hollow in which to place hair, herbs, nails etc. before being sealed. Features or symbols can be added at this stage by carving with a sharp object. There is nothing wrong with painting instead if you so wish.


Make a suitable template and use this to cut out two pieces of cloth. Stitch the two pieces together until almost sealed and then stuff with herbs or whatever is required for the spell or talisman. Again the poppet can be adorned with symbols or the name of the recipient.


Undoubtedly the quickest way of making a poppet! Simply cut the paper into a figure shape and decorate as you desire. A photograph of the intended recipient can be stuck on if desired. Obviously being made of paper it will not be very hardy and will need to be handles carefully.


Several roots such as potato, ginseng, carrot (or almost any suitable vegetable) can be carved into the required shape. This is obviously a poppet that is only suitable for short term use as it will rot quite quickly. Once finished it can be used as required but do not do any additional carving or work on it once you have started to use it.


wax can be carved into shape but it is probably easier (and certainly less messy) to soften it first and mould it into shape in the same way as clay. Do make sure it’s not too hot to handle first though. Again, leave a hollow for some personal token before adorning.
Soften candles and shape them into poppet figurine. Rub lavender oil, or similar onto your hands first for ease, and ensure the wax is not too hot. Use small pieces of coal or gems to adorn the poppet. For a more powerful effect use hair, fingernails, or some token or possession of the recipient.


Makes for a very durable poppet. Simply carve the wood into a figure shape and glue on something from the recipient. Woodcarving is not as difficult as it sounds provided you take it slow and be careful. The poppet can be adorned as you see fit using paint, pens, crayons etc.
