There comes a time in every Witch’s life when they feel there is nothing left to learn. When all the classes and all the books just cannot satisfy our desire to want to learn more. What if there was a book for all magickal practitioners that went beyond Witchcraft and magick 101, and 102. What if there was a resource that allowed a Witch to grow and learn without the constraints of a specific tradition and at their own pace?

“A Modern Witch’s Curriculum” is that resource and will fulfill a Witch’s desire to learn and to grow. It allows those who are involved in any of the earth-based religions to progress and learn beyond their initial teachings. It provides many hands-on magickal and spiritual activities and experiences that can be started at any time of the year and on any day of the week. In a way this may be the last book you will ever purchase.

“This is the book that never ends”

“The Modern Witch’s Curriculum” combines history, science, and hands-on magickal and spiritual activities and experiences in an easy to follow calendar format. Although, the curriculum begins in October, it can be started at any time of the year and on any day of the week. There is no beginning or ending to this book. It can be used over and over again.

Best of all, the information in this book is relevant to anyone of any magickal tradition or spiritual background, whether they follow a Wiccan, Green or eclectic path, in fact, much of the book will find an audience to those who want to learn more about their own traditions and themselves. Many of the exercises and activities were created to guide the reader to areas of study and spiritual knowledge by using any resources that are accessible to them. These can be books, the Internet, and even individual experiences of the people within a circle or community. There are no boundaries or requirements on how the reader can collect the information for the activities; it’s all individual choice.

Imbolc, A Festival of (Hekate, The) Light (Bringer), an adaptation from Casting Creative Magickal Circles.

Persephone_painter

I have been so consumed with the store, organizing events, and finalizing my Salem tour that I haven’t had a chance to post something new on my blog. I am also hoping by the end of January everything will be put into place and I can return to finishing up “The Little Witch’s Curriculum” before the summer. This would put me around Imbolc. I can honestly say this is not one of my favorites of the Wheel but I do still celebrate it with my group. I also have my own specific practice for this time of the year. I use this “Festival of Lights” to burn off all of the last year’s candles to end or release their magick through one ritual. Although in my own personal practice, I don’t necessarily follow the “Wiccan” Wheel of the year as much as I used to, this year I want (need) to return back to having a more structured spiritual practice. This “resolution” for the year really wasn’t my idea, it was Hekate, who guided me to return to my beginnings. Despite an already cumbersome schedule, I do understand why and the need to do this. It isn’t so much for the religious ideals, but for the routine of ritual and practice. This homecoming would also include more Moon rituals and devotions, all of which would focus around Hekate in some way or another. Thankfully, I am not traveling this journey alone, I completely am letting her guide me every step of the way. Much of this new curve has rolled over into my group, which has been recently reinvented sort of speak as well.  However, we do still hold to The Wheel of the year and enjoy the celebrating of the Sun’s path around the earth. It just now has a foundation in Hekate’s mysteries.

For this year’s group Imbolc, I plan to use this circle casting from my book “Casting Creative Magickal Circles”. I feel that this one can easily be altered to include the Phosphorus (light-bringer) or Dadophoros (torch-bearer) epithets of Hekate. The adaptations are shown in red.

Festival of Light Group Circle

Items needed: one blue(red) altar candle, one tea light candle for every participant.

Prior to your Imbolc ritual request that every participant brings one tea light to the ritual.

Before starting make sure that all participants have their candles in hand. When ready, begin in the east; the direction of the rising sun(light). Start by lighting the blue(red) altar candle saying:

“We come together in honor of the growing sun(Hekate’s growing light),

Round and round we are bound.”

Starting with the closest person light their candle off the blue(red) altar candle, direct each participant to light their candle off the person next to them. While chanting:

“Round and round we are bound!”

Continue clockwise until all candles are lit.

Once everyone’s candle is light, direct the participants to hold them up and say:

“Together we cast this circle of protection and love (light),

Round and round we are bound.

Gathered together to honor the sun (as Hekate Phosphorus, The Light Bearing Queen) .

With harm to none.”

Visualize protective and loving energy connecting each candle, then expanding into a sphere around your space.

Saying: “So mote it be”.

After the circle is cast direct everyone to place his or her candles on the altar for the duration of the ritual.

When you are ready to release the circle have everyone gather his or her candles. Depending on the length of your ritual some of the candles may have burnt out. Lit or unlit it will not matter for the releasing of the circle. When all participants have their candles in hand, direct them to turn facing outward away from the altar.

Say or something similar:

“We release our circle of love and light (Hekate’s light),

Out into the world.

May its light bring joy (enlightenment) to those in need.”

 

Direct everyone to extinguish his or her candles.

News: Introducing The Hierophant – A Magickal Thrift & Occult Shoppe, Opening October 2018

logo2

I am so excited and proud to announce that I will be opening The Hierophant this month. Although, It will only be on-line at the moment, a physical storefront should follow in 2019.

What is The Hierophant?

The Hierophant is a magickal thrift and occult shoppe that offers affordable and unique magickal and occult Items. All the products are hand crafted and picked by author, artist and practicing Witch, E. Massey. As a magickal practitioner for over twenty years, E. Massey believes that one’s spiritual practice or need of magick should not take away from one’s pockets. From the time he was a “Little Witch” he has repurposed many items found at thrift stores or yard sales for spiritual purposes and now wants to share this with the community.

What does The Hierophant offer?

The Hierophant offers affordable hand-crafted items such as magickal candles, potions, and incense for any intent and need. All of E. Massey’s magickal items are empowered and fixed to work for your highest good and all repurposed products have been cleaned, both mundanely and magickally. Unlike other “metaphysical” and occult stores many items are one of a kind and uniquely created by hand.

The Hierophant also sells items such as various candles, oils, and incense for the everyday regular practices of any magickal and spiritual tradition. All these products have been hand-picked from suppliers and crafters from all over the world. The Hierophant thrives to not be your normal metaphysical store and puts the “craft” back in Witchcraft.

What spiritual tradition does The Hierophant represent?

The Hierophant does not hold to one tradition or belief system, we support and cater to all of the magickal and spiritual communities.

Where can you find The Hierophant?
