The MasterThe Master
I’m terribly scared. I’m so scared of this beast, this monster. I’m so scared I’m out hiding in the upstairs closet down the dark narrow hallway. I’m hoping that the horrible creature doesn’t find me. I can hear the chilling child-like screams and moans of the dead children’s angered souls coming from down stairs. Surely the dark creature which they follow is ahead of them. They called him “The Master”. The master is a horrible terrible creature. He slaughters and absorbs human souls to make him more demonic and more powerful. The creature is made up of the children’s deepest fears. He wanted me because now I am the only one left. He slaughtered my parents and my siblings before my very eyes. He slaughtered all my friends who went to school with me. He even slaughtered my fencing teacher. He has been searching for me for so long and now I’m just a few feet away. He knows I am the only one who can s

Scarab and Witchcraft
The ancient Egyptians understood the sacred nature and the power of scarab. It was, for them, a symbol of life, hope, regeneration and the victory of hard work and perseverance over lethargy and inaction. The scarab represents how the strong will can overcome the hurdles. The actions of scarab also reveal the will of the gods and goddesses. The witches empower the amulets and talismans made in the shape of scarab by using certain rituals in the worship of the god Ra or Atum. Ra could roll the sun across the sky, over to the horizon in the evening and back in the morning. Witches use the gold, silver or plastic scarabs as oracles to divine the future. They hold them in their hands and concentrate upon them. They then see visions or dream like scenes, which they ‘read’ out, as divination of the future or solution to the problem. There is yet another way the witches use scarab as an oracle. They take a set of thirty or so sc

Salem witches were a group of people who were persecuted in the ancient time due to their practice of bad witchcraft. Supernatural events keep on occurring in the lives of the people in some places in the United States. With this phenomenon in hand, a strong belief that the evil actively persists on earth. Nonetheless, supporters of witchcraft have defended its worth due to the benefits it provides for agriculture and farming. At first, white magic has been useful for people in charming wild animals for food and communicating with the Gods for a good harvest. As this type of magic progressed, other forces were able to penetrate its core by conceptualizing dark magic. These two opposite forces have consistently fought each other each taking side either the good or the bad. From then on, witches became an issue. There were good practitioners who utilized white magic for their incantations and charms. On the other hand, the dark magic also has

Wicca Gods and Goddesses
Wicca is the most liberal religion in the world. There is absolutely no regimentation of dos and don’ts of any kind in Wicca philosophy so long as you cause no harm to anyone. It is not like Christian religion where you are supposed to revere the saints canonized only the church. You are free to worship gods and goddesses of your community. There are, therefore, literally thousands of different gods and goddesses in pantheons of different religions of the world. The ones you choose to worship depend upon your spiritual path. Most Wiccans describe themselves as eclectic. This means they follow their own choice. They may worship a god of one tradition and the goddess of another. Of course, you have to consider your special needs and the domain that the god presides over. For example, if you are an artist and want help to improve your skills, crafts or handiwork, you cannot call upon Cupid or Venus to help you, as their domain

Witchcraft is both a religion and craft. Religion also involves worship which in turn requires the performance of rituals. Witchcraft is the art of performing rituals for realising your spiritual potential.
Study books and nature
You must start with reading as many books on witchcraft as possible to get a thorough understanding of its tenets and beliefs. Witchcraft is closer to Paganism, which is a religion of Nature. So you should also go directly into the lap of Nature to have a practical feel of the religion of witchcraft. Watch the flight of the birds at sunrise and sunset. Enjoy the movement of the moon, its growth to bright, rounded fullness and decline. Read books through brooks and sermons in stones, as Wordsworth said. Behold the clouds passing through the mountains and over the seas. Watch the changing colors in the sky and on the earth. Take a notebook and write your feelings on seeing Nature in its various avatars. Nature is the ma

How to become a witch:
Becoming a witch means learning witchcraft as a religion of Nature. The first step, therefore, in learning witchcraft is to understand Nature and love it for what it is. You cannot love anything unless you develop a feeling or empathy for it. This is possible only when you stay close to it. So stay close to Nature. Watch the grandeur of sun rise and sun set, or, the different phases of the moon and try to grasp the mystery behind them. Listen to the celestial music in the chirping of the birds, the blowing of wind, thunder of clouds, flashes of lightning and the lapping of waves. Soak your heart and soul in the warm rays of the sun in winter and cool winds in summer. This can happen only if you find time from your busy schedule of work.

Up In SpaceA long time ago when the moon was bright,
I stared at a star filled sky.
And wondered in my little mind,
How our little world gets by.
In all that space above our heads,
Where the heavens’ guardians burn,
There must be life much more than us,
At every twist and turn.
Giant creatures with lights for eyes,
And a trumpet for a nose.
Made up of green stuff slimy and wet,
With a tail like a garden hose.
Small, thin creatures made of glass,
Flying rocket-ships past Mars.
With giant computers and flashing lights,
Shooting lazers from their arms!
A flock of bird-like creatures fly,
Past Venus on their way,
To a planet far away from here,
We don’t even know its name!
Here it’s a feat for us to go,
From one country to the next.
But imagine up in space they fly,
Across galaxies instead!
Dobrej nocy życzę wszystkim. Karaluchy pod poduchy, a wszelakie strachy wrzucone pod tapczan...
Dobranoc wszystkim, snów tęczą się mieniącą, od strachów wolnych pod miłą poduszką...
Harców z skrzatami, co z bojów na poduszki słyną i które strachy odganiają spokojny sen nam zapewniając...
Niech elfia muzyka do snu was utuli, marzenia piękne niosąc, co dnia następnego się spełnią, dając wam radość...
Niech faunów gromada na fujarkach wam zagra... kołysanki narnijskie, które do snu was ukołyszą... i piękny koszyk marzeń przyniosą... na tę noc spokojną...
Niech nocne wróżki do tańca was zaproszą podczas którego do łóżek was zaproszą... gdzie pod ich pilną pieczą mocy snów was oddadzą... najpiękniejszych niczym gwiazdy
PathWe have traveled on this path
broken and lost
confused and hurt
and have nearly lost everything dear to us
and fallen over and over
But we can stand again
we can still walk and grow
We can learn from these pains and mistakes
We can learn to walk into the light once again
just promise me one thing
and i will get back up to try again
tell me your glad you met me
and that we'll always be friends
I will get up and help you stand
and continue our journey
wherever it leads us.
Heureux souvenirJe me souviens de ses soirées d'été survoltées, lorsque j'étais enfant.
J'ouvrais soudain la porte, et m'enfonçais dans l'obscure froid normand.
Les rosiers de Mamie me regardaient comme si j'étais un extra-terrestre.
Restant là, bouche bée dans le noir, à écouter mon coeur hurler dans ce silence,
les joues rouges et les yeux écarquillées, poussière sous la voute céleste,
jamais l'immobilité ne me paru autant virevolter, comme la plus belle des danses.
Je penchais alors la tête en arrière, les yeux clos, et respirait à plein poumon.
Puis j'ouvrais d'un coup les yeux, porte ouverte vers le spectacle le plus fabuleux,
telles des milliers, des millions, des milliards de lucioles sur une sombre toile de fond.
La paix des étoiles envahissait mon âme et caressait mon coeur : j'étais heureux.
Summer GamesOh sing the song of silent words
And star twinkling in the night
Of lovers walking in the sand
And blue birds taking flight
Oh come to me my child
And ask of who you will be
And I will tell you a story
Of how I discovered me
The hot summer days
Were long and fun
As I sat within the shade
And the nights were filled
With wonders and dancing
As I learned to play the game
The game of life
The game of love
The game of living true
So as you ask me who am I
I’ll say I was you
I was you when I was young
And still new to the world
I was you, you running free
The spirit of a little girl
So sing the song of silent words
And star twinkling in the night
Of lovers walking in the sand
And blue birds taking flight
And learn to have fun once in a while
And just enjoy your life
fairiesdancing in circles
not going anywhere
i see the crystals
i see the clear but
what i dont see
is you not here
i fly through the air
not the normal dont see
but what i do
is simply help thee
sleep my child
dont be scared
i'll chase the monsters
that make you scared
i may be little
you may be big
but that doesnt matter
its all in the brains
