Do Prayer Circles Work Miracles?
When people join together to pray for others, it is technically called
“intercessionary prayers.” In all cultures, including this one, it has
been known for years that groups of people wishing well for a person help them achieve a goal. Usually, intercessionary prayers are reserved for people who are quite ill, are addicted, or need money.
There have been some hard studies done about intercessory prayer, but most of them have appeared in what skeptics would call a biased publication: The Journal of Religion. A Brandeis sociologist named Wendy Cadge is a Harvard expert on this topic. She has analyzed the results of eighteen studies done about the effectiveness of prayer that were done by various organizations between 1965 and 2005.
According to an article in Brandeis University News on the web, the studies
reflected the prayers groups of several religions, including Christian, Jewish,
and Buddhist prayers.
The problems with these studies, according to Cadge, are that they were a bit “soft” and the control groups were biased. Many of them were based on what happens when a group of family members prays for a sick subject and not real control groups.
Another problem is that even when it came to conducting double blind clinical trials, it was difficult to figure out what dosage a prayer should be, how they should be offered, and if the person praying actually had to be a believer or subscriber to a certain religion for these prayers to work for him or her.
Additionally, The Sunday New York Times reported in a story by Sam Knight in 2006 that a huge study of 1,800 who were prayed over after heart bypass surgery did not result in cures. In fact, many of the patients who were aware that they were being prayed for experienced a much noticeably higher rate of complications. This study, which was funded by the John Templeton foundation and cost $2.4 million dollars, took over ten years to conduct. This study was conducted by the members of three congregations: the St. Paul’s Monastery in St. Paul; the Community of Tersian Carmelites in Worcester, and the Massachusetts and Silent Unity that is a Missouri prayer minister near Kansas City. These congregations were subdivided into more groups: those who
were told they were being prayed for, those who would receive prayers but did not know, and those that would not be prayed for at all.
The worshippers always prayed for the patients by name the night before the surgery and for the two weeks following the surgery and asked God to "grant a successful surgery with a quick, healthy recovery and no complications."
The result was that fifty-two per cent of patients in both groups suffered complications after surgery, but 50 percent of those who knew they were being prayed for went on to develop complications.
Religious and philosophical experts will always say that this study failed simply because prayer is not a self-conscious process. You know how they watched pot never boils. The same is apparently is true with prayer. It is a cosmic law.
The prayers might have made the patients that knew about it even sicker because it caused anxiety. Another theory is that “what we resist persists.” Yet another theory is that prayers have no power and that God just intervenes when he feels like it. It is not spiritually correct for us to think that we somehow control God with anything that we might attempt.
There are also no real studies that prove undeniably that the power of prayer or positive thought can affect the outcome of things. However, if you are really curious about this topic and want to investigate the Cluster Effect, which is about the effect of prayer on how water crystals form, you should watch a movie called “What the Bleep Do We Know.” Like the movie and the book “The Secret” it is all about manifesting a more positive outcome to situations.
An excellent book written about this subject is Wishing Well:
Making Your Every Wish Come True by Paul Pearsall which discusses such concepts as praying, positive thinking, accessing your higher power and willing things to happen. He calls prayer “a sixth sense suggestion” that can somehow can reach our intended beneficiary.
However, even though praying for others can result in joy, altruism, forgiveness and healing, Pearsall says that prayer can have negative results if we end up praying for the wrong thing. For instance, if we are praying that a victim of AIDS have a stronger immune system we might be, out of ignorance, praying for the wrong thing simply because it is a disease that is caused by an immune system that was too strong. If a prayer is not a delicate echo that can resound through the universe and spiritually polite in nature it is not likely to be answer; in fact we might even hex the situation by being too pushy about it.
People who object to praying to God to change the outcome of a
situation also argue with it simply because if it is God’s Will for something to happen the you should just accept it. To conduct an intercessionary prayer may in fact be a way of battling of God and objecting to his divine plan for our well being.
One of the latest trends in praying for the ill is to pray while fasting. This is an ancient technique that is being revived in contemporary church groups thanks to a book by Ronnie W. Floyd called “The Power of Prayer and Fasting.” It is the technique for getting a “wish granted” that is recommended in the Bible.
On the other side of the coin, it is even hard for skeptics to dismiss the fact that prayer can be useful. There are millions of anecdotes throughout history that tell us that this is true. At the very least, it serves to comfort the person praying if not the actual person that is being prayed over.

When it comes to casting spells, there are two schools of thought as to how to make the desired results manifest in real life. It has to do with how much drama and emotion you should put into the ritual while you are acting it out.
One school of metaphysical thought says that rituals and spells will only work if you make an attempt to act out the results as much as possible. This is why sex magic is supposed to work so well. The act of having sex while manifesting what you want during a ritual has the same intensity as desire.
That is why when witches cast circles they go to a lot of trouble to “raise energy.” They cast a circle and then sky clad (or buck naked) call the four elements to them in loud voices and dramatically as possible. The chanting that takes place in these group rituals also helps increase the drama associated with the casting of the spell.
On a smaller scale, the individual casting the spell might have more success putting their emotion into the ritual. For instance, let’s say you are lighting a red candle and anointing it with olive oil to attract love. Your first job would be to visualize the person in full as you visualize the happy outcome of the results of the ritual. However aside from just that, it is also of value to experience the “feelings” of love as you would as if the person was kissing you or having a good time with you. In theory, the same holds true of vengeful spells. You are to feel the pain as you hurt the other person with your words. This is why so many black magic spells involve the use of needles and pins.
The second theory about casting spells is that you should not attach any emotion to them at all. A lot of experts who have written about manifestation technique say that emotion is the equivalent of pushing too hard psychically.
For instance, let’s say you are lighting that red candle for love and putting all of your heart and soul into it to try and make the other person do as you want. There is a good chance that this particular person will feel this emotion and energy as a “psychic shove.” Astrally, the person may even become annoyed by it.
Some manifestation experts say that you are much better off to make the request coldly and with as little emotion attached to it as possible. You are to make the request once and then not think of it again. It is the act of “letting it go” and letting the powers that
be take care of it that makes the miracle happen. If you push at it and visualize the desired result too much, the theory is that you will actually achieve the opposite as the cosmos does not like desires that seem to be out of proportion or balance.
The truth is that both methods, attaching emotion or not attaching emotion to a ritual, do seem to work. It is up to you to try it out and see which method works best for you.

The videos you are about to watch gives a good description of the history as well as explain how the leaders have changed what and when people worship and celebrate.
The Moon is associated with Witchcraft, Magic and Sorcery, and is considered to be the source of witches' power. Witches hold their meetings, called 'circles' or 'esbats', and preform their magic spells in accordance with lunar phases. The waxing Moon is favourable for growth, achievement, good fortune, and healing spells. The waning Moon is favourable for banishing spells and the undoing of harm and negative influences. The Moon itself is believed to cast spells; one may become moonstruck beneath the silvery rays. The terms 'mania', derived from 'moon', means ecstatic revelation; 'lunacy' means possessed by the spirit of Luna.
Nights of the Full Moon provide the greatest power for magic and the world of spirit.
In preparation for this, the witch is required perform ritual cleansing (bath in salt water). A secluded place is necessary, free from interruption. Candles for fire and incense for air both can be utilized to cause change through magic. When all is prepared, the witch proceeds to call out chosen words to appeal or petition to higher powers.
On the night of the Full Moon (October 18, 2013), cast a circle with dried autumn leaves, about six feet in diameter. Sprinkle a bit of salt over the circle to consecrate the sacred space.
Sit in the center of the circle facing north with two small white candles and frankincense and myrrh incense before you. Light the incense and meditate for awhile until your mind is free of all unpleasant thoughts and your body is completely relaxed. Light the first candle and say:
O Mother Goddess, Creature of Life,
Blessed One of the starry skies,
In this sacred Circle of Light,
I do pledge myself to honor thee
And to abide the Witches' Rede,
Harm none, nor self,
So Mote It Be.
Light the second candle and say:
O Great Horned God, Lord of the Woodlands,
Rayed One of the splendorous Sun,
In this sacred Circle of Light,
I do pledge to honor thee,
So Mote It Be.
Hold your open hands up to the dark sky. Close your eyes and visualize two white beams of glowing light descending from the heavens above and flowing into your palms. A warm tingling feeling will begin to spread throughout your body as the energy cleanses your soul of all negativity.
Remain in the circle until both of the candles have burned down.
The Necronomicon is a fictional book from the stories of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. It was first mentioned in Lovecraft's 1924 short story "The Hound", written in 1922, though its purported author, the "Mad Arab" Abdul Alhazred, had been quoted a year earlier in Lovecraft's "The Nameless City". Among other things, the work contains an account of the Old Ones, their history, and the means for summoning them.
Other authors such as August Derleth and Clark Ashton Smith also cited it in their works; Lovecraft approved, believing such common allusions built up "a background of evil verisimilitude." Many readers have believed it to be a real work, with booksellers and librarians receiving many requests for it; pranksters have listed it in rare book catalogues, and a student smuggled a card for it into the Yale University Library's card catalog.
This a three film adoptation that is the mythos of HP Lovecraft
The fictitious black-magic grimoire, the idea of which was created by the American occult and horro-fiction writer, H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937). Lovecraft wrote about the book in his fiction and acquired a cult followers who believed that it actually exists and that is based, at least in part, on fact.
The Necronomicon was born of Lovecraft's fertile imagination in his 1936 essay, "A History of The Necronomicon."
The fantasy captured the imagination of some of Lovecraft's fans, and for years a belief persisted that a real grimoire titled The Necronomicon existed. Book-sellers received request for it. As the late 1980's, at least two versions of the "real" Necronomicon had been published.
The Encyclopedia Of Witches and Witchcraft by Rosemary Ellen Guiley
Necromancy - divination by raising the spirits of the dead, one of the claimed Black Arts practised by witches and magicians. The classic case of necromancy is the Witch of Endor, described in the Bible (1 Samuel 28), who summoned the spirit of Samuel in the presence of Saul. The Biblical episode was widely accepted as irrefutable evidence of the existence if Witchcraft. The idea behind necromancy was that the dead could see the future and could be conjured into describing it.
It is unlike other forms of divination in that it tools are not part of the world around us, like clouds or rods or animals. It goes back to legends of descent of the Underworld and visits from the dead, such as recorded in Shakespeare's play Hamlet, but in its trappings and rituals it is more a branch of Black Magic than of regular divination, which relies on the person of the diviner being in tune with the phenomena he or she is assessing. Nine days of morbid and grisly preparation are required in which the magician dresses in the burial clothes of corpses and recites the funeral service over to himself and his assistants. At midnight or dawn, the grave is opened and the corpse conjured to come out alive. In accounts of such events, the corpse is often made to speak through the mouth of one of the assistants.
Dictionary of the Occult - Publisher Geddes & Grisset reprinted 2002.
Bardo Thodol: The Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State, it is often referred to in the West by the more casual title, Tibetan Book of the Dead, a name which draws a parallel with the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, another funerary text.
The Tibetan text describes, and is intended to guide one through, the experiences that the consciousness has after death, during the interval between death and the next rebirth. This interval is known in Tibetan as the bardo. The text also includes chapters on the signs of death, and rituals to undertake when death is closing in, or has taken place. It is the most internationally famous and widespread work of Tibetan Nyingma literature.
According to Tibetan tradition, the Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State was composed in the 8th century by Padmasambhava, written down by his primary student, Yeshe Tsogyal, buried in the Gampo hills in central Tibet and subsequently discovered by a Tibetan terton, Karma Lingpa, in the 14th century. There were variants of the book among
different sects. The Tibetan Book of the Dead was first published in 1927 by
Oxford University Press. Dr. Walter Y. Evans-Wentz chose this title because of
the parallels he found with the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
The Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State is recited by Tibetan Buddhist lamas over a dying or recently deceased person, or sometimes over an effigy of the deceased. The name means literally "liberation through hearing in the intermediate state".
The Cross of Light
The Cross of Light is very effective exercise for strengthening the aura and focusing energy. It is traditionally performed prior to all ritual work, particularly the tracing of a magic circle.
1. Stand facing east and imagine a brilliant white light above you. Raise your left hand above your head and draw the light down to your forehead, saying:
"Thine, O Lady and Lord..."
2. Feel the light fill your head and draw it down in a line through your body toward your feet, saying:
"Is the Kingdom..."
3. Feel the light fill your body and follow your hand as you bring it to your shoulder, saying:
4. Draw the line of light straight across to your left shoulder, saying:
"And the Glory..."
5. Now cup your hands to your heart, feeling the great cross of light radiating through you, and say:
Forever. Blessed it Be."
To raise elemental energy for magical workings.

An equinox occurs twice a year (around 20 March and 22 September), when the plane of the Earth's equator passes the centre of the Sun. At this time the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun. The term equinox can also be used in a broader sense, meaning the date when such a passage happens. The name "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because around the equinox, night and day are about equal length.
Vernal equinox and autumnal equinox: these classical names are direct derivatives of Latin (ver = spring and autumnus = autumn). Again, this is from a Northern Hemisphere perspective of spring and fall. Mabon, the Vernal Equinox or Equal Night is the official beginning of autumn. Annually on this date in the Northern Hemisphere, faces the Sun and receive equal amounts (12 hours each) of daylight and darkness.
Mabon, September 22, 2013 marks the second and final time (the first was March 21st) each year that day and night are of equal in length. The autumn day's grow shorter, the nights longer. Now, is the time when the Earth prepares for the departure of the sun's abundant light, warmth and growth. The planet enters the time when the darkness takes over the light. Tuning into the seasonal activities, the wheel of life connects one with the universal
rhythm. Life is continuously changing, evolving, dieing, and being re-born. Summer is fading. In the orchards apples dangle, red, gold and ripen. Harvesting the vegetables begins, with tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, beans, potatoes, corn and all the rest pouring from the garden. We reap what we have sown.
