You are the Mugwort to my Henbane...

The Magickal Worlde of Herbs and Plants.

Utnapishtim said to him, to Gilgamesh:
Gilgamesh, you came here;
you strained and toiled.
What can I give you as you as return to your land?
Let me uncover for you, Gilgamesh, a secret thing.
A secret of the gods let me tell you.
There is a plant, its roots go deep, like the boxthorn;
Its spike will prick your hand like a bramble.
If you get your hands on the plant,
you'll have everlasting life.
-The Epic of Gilgamesh.

The herb doctors an physicians of Sumer, Babylon, Assyria and Egypt believed in no uncertain terms that their craft was a gift from the gods, and the gods themselves were its first practitioners. The knowledge of the curative properties of plants, water and oil was considered a divine art whose secrets were jealously guarded, and passed down in oral traditions. When men first learned to write they committed these teachings to clay tablets and rolls of papyrus, and drew up the first lists off medicinal herbs. In these ancient herbals medicine and magic are almost inextricably mixed together; though it is clear they had a very real knowledge of primitive medicine. As herbalists they took with them their box of medicines and as a magician their magic rods, which were the symbols of their profession.
-The Divine Origin of the Craft of the Herbalist.

Used for Protection and Prophesy, my all-time favourite herb (You and your Mugwort Bella!) Dedicated to the goddesses Diana and Artemis, it was also believed that the knowledge of its supernatural powers were a gift given to humankind by mermaids, for the goode of all. It can be used to heal pain, and induce psychic powers and lucid dreaming.
Smoked at night, it can induce colourful and vibrant lucid dreaming, placed underneath your pillow sleep can cause not only wonderful visions, but also astral travelling, dreams of prophesy and meanings. A word of precaution for my favourite herb, never use in any way if pregnant and expecting childe, it can induce miscarriages by relaxing the uterus.

This sex magick herb is an aphrodisiac of the Divine, a gift of the gods and goddesses bestowed upon us to enjoy and be able to succumb to the depths of sensuality and the art of making Love. This herb may increase fertility and the libido of both men and women, so it is best to use at most two or three times a week, or as required.

Aphrodisiac Damiana Tea:
Drink two cups of the boiled Damiana each day; one teaspoon per cup sweetened with honey to taste. This delicious, but slightly acrid tasty tea will enhance your love- making abilities and attractiveness to others, word of caution though, this may include members of your own sex!

Damiana Liquor Love Potion:
  1. Soak 25 grams of dried damiana in 500 ml of Vodka or Tequila for 5 days
  2. Pour off the liquid, strain, and filter through a coffee filter paper
  3. Soak the remaining alcohol-drenched leaves in another 500 ml of distilled or spring water for another 5 days
  4. Pour off the liquids, strain and filter as before
  5. Warm this extract to about 70.c (160.f) and dissolves half to one cup of honey, depending on the sweetness required
  6. Combine the alcohol and water extract. This potion is very yummy and works immediately once drunk, have either hot or cold over ice.

Temptress Creatrix... Get Your Faery Goddess On!!

                                                                  Wytchery of the Fae Goddess...

She Who be Faery Goddess:
Do you Drink from RainBows like I?
Starrs on my Black Feather Wings,,
I wear Magick and Mischief...
and ButterFlies in my Hair!

Does your Heart Beckon you beneath those pale Shadows of what once was a Dream?
Does your back ache from the weight of huddled-up Wings, yearning to stretch?
Do your Eyes widen in Innocent Delight?
Then You, my Friend... are a Faery Goddess!

The magick of a Faery Goddess comes from deep within, resonating an ultimate understanding of, and communication with nature, its elements, its signs and omens. More oft than not, you will find they lead a solitary existance, shying away from covens and large groups finding it more preferable to work theyr own magick within the faery realm. An alliance with the faerys, theyr psychic impulses and energies are part of daily existance, and can be difficult for others to understand, leaving her with the occasional pangs of loneliness and difference. Walking with one foot in both worldes is a very hard choice to make and a difficult feat to maintain and balance, only the strong and pure hearted should proceed. Never approach a faery or theyr realm with malice, or bad intentions in your heart and intentions.
The faery wytch will traverse both worldes many times, forming a natural bond and psychic ability to see, feel and hear faerys and spirits, this trait is know as 'fey'. The magickal relationship between the wytch and the faery becomes a very close friendship and can be very enticing for the human. Surrounding themselves with nature, the animal kingdom and beautiful things, the likes of which occasionally will threaten to overwhelm them and theyr household.
Animals are instinctively trusting of the faery wytch, drawn to them out not only out of curiosity but also to convey messages from the spirit worlde and fae. Entrusted with the gift of not only the second sight, faery goddess's are also natural charmers and healers. A desire for mystery, magick and mythology permeates her very being and Life, she appears very different to others and seemingly very faery-esque herself.
Visionaries who express themselves through creative outlets, just for the simple fact it makes theyr souls sing, hearts fill with joy and feel the connection of Life. They are the storytellers, the painters and the poets, dancing theyr way through Life, bringing into our own worlde the beauty and magick of the faery, be it light or dark. For these blessed people know deep down in theyr heart of hearts, that both is needed as much as the other, to maintain the balance and keep the order of Life.
Those borne with the bloode of the fae running through theyr veins, and those that will ally themselves with these magickal, and sometimes mischevious creatures, create a special auar that surrounds them. Exuding beauty, glamour, joy, sexuality and charm, even as she grows older. Seemingly fragile in appearance, when in actual fact they are much stronger than they appear, a faery wytch will attract many a dark, or light energy or entity. As they become much wiser in the harsher reality that is this worlde, she will realise protection from psychic attacks is essential. For they may one day threaten to overwhelm and possess the faery goddess for her unique qualities and energy.

Invocations and Prayers of the Fated Fey...

I Love my Mind, it thinks like no other... I Love yours,
Because it shows me That Which I Do Not Know.
I Love my Spirit, for She shines... I Love yours,
It Reflects off mine.
I Love my Body, its form and expression... I Love yours,
Its Earthy impression.
Persphone, Queen of the UnderWorlde
'Tis nearly Time to Arise and Awaken!
To Return Back to us...
Thrice now I have welcomed Thee
This Time I am Complete
And Arisen myselfe from the UnderWorlde
As have Thee.
Mother Goddess, Father God
Bring forth unto me
The Power and Strength,
The Might and the Love,
The Euphoria of the Heavenly Bodies
Bestowed upon Me.
I Hear Thunder, I See Lightning...
The Gods are Wanting your Attention.
Listen to the Rain Drum,
Its Scent is the Essence
Of the Divine and Sublime.
Rain, Rain wash away the Worlde's hurts Today.
Keep it going for 24 hours,
Cleanse our Hearts to Raise our Power.

Love The Earth, Make Her Well.
Holy Bright, Holy Sprite
Grant me Now my Second Sight!

Goddess Divine,
What You See I will know in Time.
Mother Earth, Father God;
Your pain we clearly can See now,
What we have caused in our ignorance
We will Do No More.
Cleanse our Hearts and Cleanse our Spirits,
as You Cleanse your Earth.
So Mote It Be.

*Two White Candles Lit*
The HeartBeats and Wings of my Angels
are Now working in Time with the Tides of Change.
Floods keepe abay and Return to the ground
and Oceans where they Belong,
To Bring New Life and End this Pain.
Blessed Be.

Visioned:  Four white and gold Angels stood in a row.
Singing chorus, theyr hands moving in Time together,
Stitching, Sewing, Mending.

I am filled with Desire
The desire for Life, the desire for Death
I do not fear for the death of my mortal soul
I fear for the unknown of my mortal life
Immortality beckons me
The consort of the Queen, the caretaker of the Queen
My mistress is Isis, my master is Ra
Lifeforce strong, running through my veins
I worship none but my Goddess, She is my Queen
I am Her servant, in this life my last
And forever into eternity
She is my Magick, She is my Source
From the temple I came, and so shall She return
My mistress, my Goddess, my Queen
Baske me in your brilliance, turn me to Your hands
Touch the Light upon my soul and I shall be content
Gather me in Your arms, and I shall serve You for eternity
Initiated into the temple for my Queen
Becoming as One with You
I am a part of You, just as you are a part of me
Will the taste of the Goddess once be enough
One taste is not enough, yet will theyr be more
As She looks down joyously and becomes One with me
My lover reaches the Heavens just as I do
My Queen, is this your only gift
The art of Love, is this your Desire for me
The touch of the Goddess
Filled with her yearning of a mortal Life

Magickal Dreams and Visions Within the Rife of Night...

Those pale Shadows of colours I see in your eyes, those tormented Dreams that run Rife, an understanding comes into Being... Love, Magick and Mystery. The Shadows have Awoken within your Dreams... It's all the Starrs, and I have discovered I am made up more of the Starrs and magick, then myselfe even let onto mee... Believe in your Dreams, for they Believe in You!!...

 StarLight, StarBright...
(my very first vision, remembered experience at 17)
StarLight, StarBright
Moonshine in the Night
StarLight, StarBright
Magick is happening tonight
All the stars in the sky
Are falling before my Eyes
Falling so Bright
Magick for me tonight
It's Heaven sent
It's Magick spent
All the Power for me
Telling me this is my Destiny
I See the hands of Time
Turning so fast in the sky
I See the Raven's flying
And Father Time is crying
The Angels from the Heaven's Above
Are sending me all theyr love
Messages in my Dreams tonight
The stars are ever-so Bright
Electricity coursing through me
It is my future I See
Strange ships fly by
From the stars so high
I am searching for the One calling
And still the stars keep on falling
The Moon is so proud
But still He can't be found
Running, Falling
I hear Him calling
I See the sun on the water
Yet I do not falter
StarLight, StarBright
How the sun shines tonight
StarLight, StarBright
Such a Powerful sight
It's Heaven sent
It came and went
But still He calls
He knows I am coming
He Sees me running
Two souls colliding
He comes out of hiding
Together we have merged
He is pleased that I have heard
Such a Powerful feeling
My mind and body are reeling
I can feel all of the Universe
With it I converse
He has become God
And I am the Goddess
We are Everything
We are Everyone
We are the Sun, We are the Moon
We are the Eartha and the Heaven's Above
We are the God/dess of Love
Ecstacy in my heart
But now we have to part
All this I have seen
Yet the feeling still stays with me
It's Heaven sent
Now the Magick's spent
Still the feeling stays with me
Telling me this is my Destiny.

Enchantress calls in my Dreams
Nothing is as it seems
Chanting in my sleep
Calling from a worlde so deep
What does She say
Does She show me the way
To the path of mystery
Does She tell my hystory
What does She want
Enchantress, She will chant
What does She know
Wherever did She go
Is it me
Did She set me free
Enchantress from deep inside
Calling me from most high
Lady in my mind
Why does She hide
Only in my sleep
Can I hope to reach
Into my soul that runs so deep
Only in my dreams
Does She truly come to be
The woman in my dream
Who can She be
When She whispers to me
What does She say
When I dream this way
What does She want
From my dreams She haunts
What does She know
About the place I want to go
How did this come about
Wordes forming in my mouth
Chanting my sleep
Awakens my Magick from deep
Enchantress in my dream
Is it you, or is it me?

Night Queen...
Golden rays shine in her hair
Hair of the blackest night
Stars from the sky twinkle in her eyes
Eyes of the brightest light
She has ice in her heart
She has lust in her soul
She has the worlde at her feet
Watch out for her in your dreams
She'll seduce you with your wildest dreams
She'll drink your soul 'til she has her fill
But she will come back for more
Stealing your desires
Transforming your soul
Intoxicated by your taste
She lives in your dreams
Hers is of the dark fantasy
Wicked heart, wicked mind
Tortures your heart with one look from her eyes
For you cannot go back when touched
If she wants your soul.

 Forest Childe...
Walking through the forest wilde
Come across a lonely childe
Alone in the woods, where from he
Strange boy from far away
Look into his eyes, it will be okay
His mind takes hold
So foreign, so bold
Not like me, I can see
Who are you, what do you want from me
Try to look away, but I am drawn within
Forest childe, boy so wilde
Not as young as you look
Innocence is your powerful hook
Childe of immortality
Why do you set me free
Flash of light, forest so bright
Turn around, he won't be found
Forest childe, boy so wilde
You let me See, you set me free.

Take me far away to another Land
Hold me in arms so gentle
Let me feel your breathe upon my neck
While we fly through these clouds
And away from this mess
To the Land of Dreams we will reach
Like an Angel I can fly
While you take me far away
To show me more to my Life
In my heart I do feel
That now I can finally Shine
Even though I tried my best
Your breath is wrm and soft
Your arms are strong and comforting
We reach the edge of this new Land
I see the light of my new life
Love draws me closer
Beside you I look in wonder
While you hold my hand
Peaceful now I feel content
With the life that I had led
You smile at me and I can see
Now that I am Dead.
