Samhain, Dark Goddesses with Death Meditations etc. & photos/slideshow

Sorry to all my Witchy friends that is has been so long/ Since I wrote last I am sure you all celebrated Samhain & Yule. I was somewhat preoccupied around Samhain, as I was packing, getting medicine's and passports etc, to get ready for our holiday to Phuket in Thailand.. It was a wonderful holiday and I've never met such genuinely happy people as I have met in Phuket, as they are mostly Buddhists, some hindus and even some muslims. I truly didn't want to come home to south australias freezing winter.

Now back to Witchcraft, I ended up celebrating Samhain one night late. However from what I have learnt in my practice, is often being so "exact" doesn't really matter. As Spirit, The God and the Goddess are far wiser than we are. I meditated for an hour and then drew my circle and called the elements, as you do. I then began chanting for quite some time, to build up the power that I wanted for my ritual. My altar had aready been well set with many photo's of my deceased love ones. The night before on Samhain and enough candles & leaves & fruit for a shop. LOL 

I dreamt of my deceased fiance, the night before and it was a nice dream. During ritual my maternal grandmother came through. She was like a second mother to me. I asked her if my health would hold out for the trip to Phuket? As those who know me are aware, I have very poor health at times. She told me "yes, it woould be the best holiday that I have ever experienced so far". She told me that she had my grandfather with her and that they were very happy together there. She was right as it was the only holiday that I have tried in years where I didn't become ill. So she was right as usual. People in spirit usually are.

I then called upon Isis and she came through along with Hecate, Cerridwen and The Morrigan. You may sense a pattern here. These Goddesses are usually known as the Dark Goddesses. Yet what a lot of "fluffy bunny" wiccans don't realise, that to have light, you must have its polar opposite darkness too. I think that the Dark Goddesses are naturally attracted to me, as I have always been a "night" person since I was 2 years old, according to my mother. Anyway they guided me in my ritual and spell for my holiday "health" and told me to trust in them and that everything would be fine.

I also did a small spell involving a sigil that I made, for what I wanted, a candle, my couldron, piece of paper and a candle. After my incantation and dedication, Hecate came through to me again. I could see her so clearly. Just like last time. I really think I need to change my patron Goddess and I have now. I bought some skulls that I placed on my alter and did a very deep buddhist type meditation that I changed a bit for Smahian on Mortality. 

It was deeply touching, but also disturbing, as I contemplated my own demise. My own mortality and the fact that our bodies are just temporary "clothes" that we wear, whilst we are alive on this mortal plane. To do this meditation properly, one must actually go throgh the process of dying. Losing control of one's body little by little, the losing one's sense, usually the hearing goes first and touch last. Then coming to an acceptance that we are no longer alive and just spirit. I found it deeply moving and would recommend this only to someone who is secure enough in their own spirituality and belifs, This is not a meditation for wimps! What I did was very similar to what is written in the "Tibetan book. Of Living and Dying". However I rewrote it myself in my Book of Shadows for Samhain.

Afterwards I chanted some more and sang with some of my favourite witchy music my Inkubus Sukkubus. Then I had libations of Mead and shortbread biscuits. I then gave thanks to my ancestors and deceased fiance for joining me and especially to The Dark Goddess Hecate, and to the God and to Spirit. Thanked the old ones and the elements and closed my circle.

I had such a peaceful feeling afterwards, that I slept so deeply. That it was the best sleep I had, had for months. In a dream that night, I saw myself in my bedroom with Hecate sitting next to me watching me sleep peacefully. It was truly beautiful!

Then we went on our trip and it was fantastic.  Unfortunately only after being home for nearly a week, my husband became very ill. Obviously I have been looking after him. So for the first time I missed the Sabbat of Yule. I just did not have the motivation, energy or enough spirit power in me to do it. I was too busy tending to my husband. Later on I made offerings, about a fortnight later. Then I started a seven day spell for health for my husband. I spent at least 2 hours meditating and putting my intent into it. The Drs at the time were not optimistic about a quick recovery.

All as I can say is Wow!!! A few days later he was alot better. Needless to say he is getting better and better every day. So believe me witchcraft does work. As long as you really put your heart and soul into it and don't just say the words, as some sadly do. With not very good results. I'm not a witch who does spells "half heartedly". I put my entire being, physically, psychologically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually into it. I do not do spells often for "trivial reasons". As I believe that we should not ask for things out of greed or just because we want the latest Ipad. For an example. Spirit has never let me down.  As long as I only do spells for altrusistic or my family's health and/or desperate circumstances. 

I also believe in the Wiccan Rede x 3, and would never hex, curse or practice black Magick on anyone. No matter what the reason. The Dark Goddesses are wonderful and powerful. However if one dares to look use them for the wrong reasons, their vengeance will be full of wrath. So please don't ever be after all we are all human. I was once, but thankfully and with wisdom decided against it.

I have much more to publish as I had a "life changing experience" yesterday. That my mind is still trying to process. As its defintely not something that happens everyday, to anyone. I will write again alot sooner this time. I promise!! As going away and my husband's illness kept me offline for most of the time.

I have added a few Dark photos below to give you all an idea of my slideshow on Picasa, Which unfortunately I cant import to Blogger. Its on public view so you just have to click on the link above. So here is a preview, if you are interested. I also must mention that I have also been working with "Azrael, the Angel of Death". That's why there are a few pics of him too. He is incredibly powerful and to be honest, after yesterday. I am so glad I have been.

Please leave your comments below? As it means alot to me to know, what others think out there? Also let me know if you have a Spiritual or Witchy Blog of your own.

Blessed Be.

I WILL ALWAYS MISS YOU *DAVID BOWIE*~RIP THANKYOU FOR BEING YOU! I've adored David Bowie my entire life. I bought my first Bowie album way back when I was only just 14 back in 1977. It was just after his immensely successful album "Diamond Dogs". How I played that album over and over at full blast much to my Father's lifelong hatred of all modern music as he believes that only classical music is real music. The loss of David Bowie has and still is affecting so many different people all over the world. Especially our Western culture as we don't tend to grieve properly do we. We tend to think that we have to get on with life in a month within losing somebody or people may think we're suffering from depression or something. So when somebody as famous as David Bowie dies the world seems to mourn. Especially those of us…


Hello Again, 
As you may have guessed from my previous blogs especially as its been quite awhile between blogs its been an incredible year for me in so many ways. Anyway the point is in all that time I've found that Hekate Triformis is a wonderful Goddess to work with in all either with all her three faces and/or her singular forms. I especially love to invoke her in her Chthonic Crone phase as she has taught me that great things can come from truly exploring our "shadow side" as Carl Jung the famous psychoanalyst has always written about. 
The first time I truly invoked Hekate within my ritual her power was almost too much for my human body to take. I felt her within me and it was as if my body was glowing and stinging. I started to feel hotter and hotter and started sweating whilst I was channelling her and I could feel her "mind power" within me. My body was really buzzing as if I'd taken something as it takes awhile to get used to her powerful and ancient…


WHEN MAGICK CAN MEAN LIFE OR DEATH/SAVING SOMEONE VERY DEAR TO ME-A TRUE STORY by CazWytchPosted on July 2, 2015 by CazWytch *Aussie Witch & Occultist* Last year when someone whom is intensely close to me family wise was literally dying…..I was told that he only had 48 hours to live. He had been terribly ill for nearly 2 months but I refused to give up. Should I have gone to the hospital to say Goodbye? No….I chose to stay home and create what others saw as a miracle! I worked myself into a frenzy nearly every single night within that time frame leading up to what we were told was going to be the last night of his life. However it doesn’t matter really what I used or what I said. What is important is to know that my ancestors were with me all the way… well as The One That Is All…that is many….yet goes by so many different names. I am not religious at all…….however I am a Spiritualist…..A Witch & Occultist…..and so many things besides. I’ve always known that I was “differe…
