You are the most miraculous miracle in your life. Each and every day, your whole being coordinates as an entire expression of self, without harmful destruction. An entity that transforms, grows and gives way to something else.
A continual restructuring of external and internal forces that constantly renews itself until reaches a peak, withers and dies.
All physical objects face inevitable deterioration. The ageing process begins at conception. At birth, an infant ages far more in a year than an adult. It works fastest on the young then the pace slows, but continues to decrease until death.
The ageing process is still not fully understood. The standard interval between birth and death depends on the difficulties one bears with the passage of the years lived and the inability to rebound from diseases or injury. The body can no longer rise to the challenge of survival and the physical body will die.
Scientists speculate that the life expectancy is linked to change in environment and human behavior.
Everything, including thoughts and emotions, can be explained entirely by movements and changes in physical matter.
The soul is made of matter inside the flesh and bones. Our soul is the true source of intelligence and personality, not the physical body. Our soul existed before birth and will continue to survive after death.
The physical body is shell for our intellect, soul or spirit, and emotions. The elements air, fire and water eternal and inseparably connected. Everyone is born from the basic elemental tools of the universe as part of a grand plan.
Our soul and body are bound to possess free independent will to take responsibility for themselves.
Bodies the biologically reproduce with genetically engineered cells combine and the intelligence to have goals and direction to reflect our soul's desires.
We, in our whole selves, are a total embodiment of an earthly miracle. Our bodies function in ways that we may never fully understand. A creation of Divine Light, of balance and harmony. The natural forces are active in our creation. We are made from Divine Light and the Divine Light is us. We are a being, one with All.

Arianrod, a Moon Goddess, whose name means silver circle or silver wheel. She is the daughter od Don, sister of Gwydion.
Arianrod came to Caer Dathyl to serve as Math, a Great Wizard's Foot-holder, an honor only held by a virgin. Legend states that on the day she arrived for duty she brought with her shame. Arianrod claimed to be a virgin but, on that day, she bore two sons. Disgraced, she abandoned the infants to flee to her castle by the sea. Her first child was a son named Dylan who leaped into the water possibly to avoid the curses from his mother. The second son was rescued by Gwydion. He raised him and passed on his knowledge of magic on to the boy.
Arianrod's choices led her to despair. She became bitter by the experience in her life and swore revenge on all men, even her second son. When Gwydion politely asked her to name her son, she refused. Arianrod denied him a name and would not allow the boy to bear arms or marry. Gwydion tricked her with his magic into naming the child Lleu Llaw Gyffes. Later, Gwydion created an illusion while he and Lleu Llaw were disguised as Bards, of a fleet of mighty warships ready to attack her castle. It was Arianrod herself who armed Lleu Llaw when she was fooled by the vision.
Arianrod's black heart sealed her son's fate. With pure hatred, she cursed her son to solitary bed. She told the pair that Lleu Llaw would never know true love from a woman. Gwydion and the Great Wizard, Math, harnessed their magical powers together to help Lleu Llaw overcome the curse. They conjured up a bride from flowers, herbs, bark, spring water and the energies of the Sun and Moon cycles. When the flower woman came to life the wizard named her Bloodeuwedd or Flower face, then gave her to Lleu Llaw to wed. Gwydion and Math believed the curses were overturned.
Arianrod's choices in her life affected many people who were connected to her. The choice she made in the past had a consequence which then had a great impact on her future. Her life turned at an accelerated rate. He fortune rose and fell. She gained and lost, was of discord, destruction and despair.
The dark side of her nature created her bleak reality. Her reactions affected the cycle of events. She had three opportunities to change and improve the situation. She could have taken steps to turn from selfish person into one who helped others. Instead, the events which took place were episodes of misfortune because she refused to follow the Law of Karma, a witches rede:
BIDE THE WITCHES LAW YE MUST,
IN PERFECT LOVE, IN PERFECT TRUST,
EIGHT WORDS OF THE WITCH'S REDE FULFIL,
AN YE HARM NONE, DO WHAT YE WILL,
WHAT YE SEND FORTH COMES BACK TO THEE,
SO EVER MIND THE RULE OF THREE.
FOLLOW THIS WITH MIND AND HEART,
AND MERRY YE MEET AND MERRY YE PART.
The Pentacle and Pentagram are the most important symbols in witchcraft. They are the symbols in witchcraft. They are the symbols of the magical craft. A written or drawn Pentacle is called a Pentagram. It is used to apply protection, positive power when the single point is upright and to control the elemental powers.
Humans assume the Pentacle or Pentagram position during rituals, when arms ans legs are outstretched to represent birth and re-birth.
Stand with arms stretched, fingers spread and legs shoulder-width apart. Reach upward and feel the energy surrounding you. With your power hand draw in the air, moving right to left, a large figure eight on its side.
Suddenly, move your hands in the opposite direction to remind yourself to be flexible to quickly adapt to life's disruptions.
Spread your arms upward again and be open to the abundance from Divine Powers.
Close your eyes. Allow the pure white light energy enter through your crown chakra then filter through every chakra; third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, navel and base. Feel the energy sweep out through the ends of your finger and toes cleansing your entire being of undesirable sensations, inside as well as outside.
Do your senses feel alive and refreshed?
When you feel completely cleansed, close down your chakras. Take a deep breath of air into your lungs, draw the outer edges of your aura toward you. As you exhale feel your aura settle. Take control of the energy slow down the speed, beginning at the base chakra and moving upward to the next five chakras: navel, solar plexus, heart, throat and third eye, front and back, then seal the entries with an imaginary circle and cross for protection.
Slow the vibration at the crown chakra for it is always open and seal it with protection using a circle of light and a cross.
Short Prayer to Divine Powers:
Spirit Guide Bless this time, and this place,
And who I am with you.
Thank you for your support,
And for all my blessings.
I pledge to use my personal will for the greater good.
I am thankful for the time given on earth,
I am thanful to be alive.
Studying the cups you discovered you need to look within your heart to find high qualities of generosity, to apply intuition in your daily routine, and balance the extremes of your emotion.
Exploring the wand you found your actions affect others which, in turn, affects the whole of society, the planet earth and the universe. Personal intent must be for the good of all.
The sword suit represents mental disposition. The subconscious mind is where all experiences are noted and become memories, the waking conscious thoughts are synthesized and the super conscious thought is aligned with the Divine Light of Love. The mind is multifaceted, creative, inventive, structured light. That thought brings both action and acceptance.
The pentacle is the manifestation of one's emotions, personal will-spirit,and thoughts - cup, wand, sword brought into physical form. The state of one's heart, energy-soul, mind, body designs the conditions of ones life. One has the power within themselves to live the best existence.
This past year you had the opportunity to develop life skills and apply those skills. A year of building inner strength, to mature and grow with love and compassion, and to advance your abilities as a witch with the use of the basic elemental tools, cup, wand and sword. One must understand the basic powers of the elements and attain spiritual wisdom with different aspects of your nature and being. The successful creation of one's material world is the result of mixing together one's internal elements in which the total effect is ability to act or do. The joint action of all four elements in which the total effect is greater than the sum of one element acting independently to bring together all your inner resources to become whole.
The Pentacle teaches one to build form and substance upon solid, enduring foundations.
The pentacle represents the feminine element of earth. Earth stands for material things, physical feeling and practical ability. It corresponds to the element earth, north quarter, and is receptive, the materialization of cosmic powers; represents the root power of Earth, which symbolizes security, physical well-being, warmth, generosity and appreciation of beauty and nature.
The circle, the Pentacle's border, signifies a beginning without end, success that comes and goes. The star in the center-physical senses that feels satisfied and content. The Pentacle, a five pointed star with a single point upright inside a round disk represents the five senses, the five points of humans in an outstretched position. The center of the star symbolizes a human being six sense, life force, spirit.
Each element inside the other to create the whole. Emotions, personal will, spirit, intellect, all in agreement as to what should occur on the physical level.

.Isn't it rather wonderful to think that we can all contribute, howerever humbly, to the beautiful things of this world.
It is more blessed to give than to receive. Giving should be a delight not duty. Life's real happiness comes not so much from getting and having, as from giving and sharing.
Each living thing has a unique aura which is sensitive to the frequencies or vibrations of every other aura. Human have an aura of seven different energy bands which relate to different aspects of ourselves that circle our bodies.
Each layer consits of different density of very fine matter that twirls, changes, expands and contracts outward at different speeds. The seven layers of energy rediate in a sequence that vibrates frequencies which can be hard to see, but not impossible.
The first layer of energy that radiates outward from the body is known as the physical state. It extends from one-quarter to two inches beyond the physical body.
The second layer relates to how a person feels, not only about themselves, but about others. How emotions are expressed cling three inches from the body.
The third layer of energy is the mental and rational thoughts. Our negative thought patterns and new inspiration flow within this band.
The fourth layer relates to the energy of every person, place and thing that an individual comes in contact with.
The fifth layer, is harder to explain. It's how you create and align yourself to further enrich your life. It's to do with knowing that you have a place and purpose within the world.
The sixth layer, the higher conscious resides within this frequency.
To tune into the vibration meditation is vital. Message from Spirit could be heard when the active mind is stilled.
The seventh layer supports and protects all the aura layers. The shield determines how much of the energy flows into the world and regulates the energies which try to penetrate the human energy.
The layers of the human aura vibrate at different frequencies. As the layers build and move away from the physical body the frequencies are found at a higher range and the substance becomes finer.
The human aura has the power to absorb some energies while leaving traces of its own energy on anything it comes in contact with. We react to auras in an unconscious way. The emotional and mental aura bands of a person can change the atmosphere that exists. What one person feels and thinks about themselves and others flow outward from the body and affects all other energies. The vibration can make one want to move closer or go further away. The invisible energy which is exchanged can control mood or opinions.
The energies which reside in the lower frequencies pull energy from higher frequencies and higher frequencies would always lose power to a lower one. Negative energies search for positive energy to absorb their vibe. This leaves the positive energy, after the exchange, drained or heavy with a dullness in the aura.
The top three layers of the human aura will pick up the highest and finest vibrations. The bottom four layers consume the lower and dense vibrations more quickly and easier.
An esteem prayer for thought provocation:
After lighting a white candle request - Faith, Knowledge, Love from Divine Powers:
I AM AWARE OF ONE'S SELF
AS AN INDIVIDUAL
I CONTROL GUIDING MY EMOTIONS
EXPRESSING MY PERSONALITY
PROTECTING MY CHARACTER AND REPUTATION

TREATING OTHERS WITH RESPECT
DECIDING MY OWN WORTH.
