PostSubject: The Busy Year Of A Patron   Thu May 07, 2009 4:08 pm



As some of you may know, my religion can only be described as Pagan/Wiccan. To most of you, you would know me by the more common term of 'Witch'. (Solitary-Traditional.) But, alas, I cannot fly on brooms, nor can I turn people into frogs. However, I do work with nature and use spells and charms, create potions and natural medicines to help people and, of course, give dues to many gods and goddesses.

I have my own particular favorite gods and goddesses that I have formed a special bond with. I pray to them if I need assistance, or advice and I give offerings on special days.

My list is as follows:

Gods of Kemet (Egyptian)



  • Osiris - I am a patron of him. He is the main god I serve under. My bond with him is special.
  • Thoth - God of knowledge, maths and creativity. He can be called upon to help with any situation involving any of the above subjects. I find him useful for inspiration and help revealing hidden truths.
  • Ra - The father. He is the awe-inspiring sun above. I ask him to watch over my loved ones and, sometimes, for the odd favor. I offer him ruby ale as a gift.
  • Horus - God of the living. I ask him for protection and strength. Also, I have a close bond with him. (Maternal feelings.)
  • Sekhmet - One must give her offering to keep her happy. She can also be asked for assistance in any battle. (Physical, legal... You name it.)
  • Seth - Although I am not at all in favour, he is to be respected. Seth is very useful at times and is not to be taken lightly.
  • Min - Min is the one I ask for assistance in love and *cough* other things. Wink They say you can see him in violent rain storms.
  • Tefnut - Is it raining? Want it to stop? Maybe it isn't raining enough? An offering to Tefnut never goes amiss. Wink


Other Gods/Goddesses/Angels/Arch Angels/Daemons/Important Spirits



  • Athena - Ask for her wisdom and guidance.
  • Diana - Help with love. Also birthday wishes. (After all, that's where birthday cakes come from. Grin )
  • Aphrodite - Same as above.
  • Eros - Same.
  • Lilith - Keep away curses, bad luck and other things. (I like Lilith quite a bit.)
  • Pan - Praised in a lot of natural magic. Another god I share a bond with.
  • Astarte/Asteroth - *Cough* I don't think I want to really mention this too much.
  • Andromalius - He punishes all thieves and other wicked people, and discovers hidden treasures, all evilness, and all dishonest dealing.
    For Information On Arch Angels Click Here!
  • Anael
  • Asariel
  • Azrael
  • Cassiel
  • Gabriel
  • Lumiel
  • Metatron
  • Sandalphon
  • Michael
  • Raphael
  • Sachiel
  • Samael
  • Uriel
  • Oshun - Spirit-Goddess of love, intimacy, beauty, wealth and diplomacy.


----------------

Now, not only do we have our gods and goddesses to please, we also have dates we have to remember. This, in my case, is different to most pagans/wiccans, as I have specifically chosen to follow the traditional 'Wheel of the Year', but also to follow celebrations related to the Kemet (Egyptian) Gods and goddesses.

The general 'Wheel of the Year' is as follows:

Help And Support For Many

Over the years I have indeed helped a great number of people who have come to me for help. (Both magical and medical.) Even a few of the local Christians who actually shunned me, because I was brought up as one of them, came to me for advice. There have been many issues that I have delt with, from relationship spells, pregnacy spells, spells to help get people jobs/homes, even spells to make a cat stay loyal to it's owner. I have even helped people with problems with unruly spirits, helped detenct if places are haunted, given accurate readings on spirit activity within dwellings, given spells using Angel Magic etc, etc. As for medical issues, I use only natural remedies. Infusions made from herbs and plants, poultices, potions and incenses. I even do a little crystal work, if need be.

Bad Spells?

Now, there are some out there that believe there is no such thing as 'bad magic', or dark forces. I can honestly say with total confidance that there is. If there wasn't, why would we need spells to protect us? Why would we need
to ring bells at weddings, have bridesmaids and throw rice? Why would we honestly need to ward off daemons with special herb and flower bouquets just outside the door that are still used at churches today?

Yes, it exists. I know of a great many spells that are not exactly, how shall I put it... 'Nice.' I know how to summon daemons and curry their favor. ( I'm particularly fond of the Goetia... ) But, you should be warned. I follow the threefold return law. That absically means that whatever I do will return to me three times more. So, don't worry. I'm not about to leave a heart pierced with thorns on your doorstep. Wink

Many people think that being a 'Witch' means you are a follower of Satan. The thing about that is, you are only that if you choose to be. Other than that, it's mostly close work with nature and animals.

Yes, you heard. Animals. All Witches have a familiar. It's not just a movie cliche. Mine are my birds which I share a close bond with. For a lot of people it's a cat, but a familiar can be any animal you share a bond with that can help you in your magical work.

Another thing I use animals for is divination. No, I'm not very talented with a crystal ball, before you ask. I don't just use birds though, I have other ways too. I specialize in Ornithomancy, which (Divination by birds.), Entomancy(Divination by means of insects.), Aeromancy/Nephomancy (Divination by atmospheric conditions/Clouds.) and Tephramancy. (Divination by means of ashes.) I have helped a lot of people with this skill and I don't think I've ever been wrong.


Good omens for me are as follows:

Two Magpies (As long as they don't part ways.)
A Wren (So long as he doesn't fly off west.)
A robin
A caterpillar
Hoverflies
Bumblebees
Wasps (So long as it doesn't keel over and sting itself.)
Scarabs

Bad omens are:

A Heron (The only good omen from a Heron is if it has a mate with it, or if it flies east.)
A solitary Magpie (The severity and type of bad luck depends on it's actions.)
A solitary crow cawing and flying west.
A Millipede (Especially involving travel.)
Rain beetles

All these vary in severity depending on the actions taken by the bird/insect. I also like to look at flocks of birds such as sparrows and judge how things will go in the day from how they act.

So, as you can see... The life of a person such as myself is never dull. It is always interesting and you never know what is around the corner... Unless you predict it, of course. Wink

So, how about you guys? Are you religious? If so, what do you celebrate, or do?

I don't practice my faith. I am what is known as a backslider in my religion. A back slider is someone who once knew salvation but has turned away from it to live in sin in which it is almost like they had never had salvation at all, they return to being a part of the world rather than living in the salvation. I don’t know if that’s a very good explanation of what I am, but I think it works. Its complicated. I still believe in my religion, I just don’t practice it. I turned my back on my religion to seek my own lusts I suppose.

I was raised in the Pentecostal/Holiness faith. Many people may know it as the religion of Holy Rollers. I believe in the casting out of demons and taking up serpents, even healing the sick. The apostles did it, and what God gives to one he can give to another. I’ve never witnessed it, but my family has, and I still believe it. I have known the graces of God, and I have felt his power. In other words, I believe God is alive, and within everything, but I have seen him do many things. I believe in speaking in tongues and I also believe in the power of God getting on you and moving you. In other words, shouting and “rolling the floors.” I’ve seen it, and I’ve felt the power in it. It amazes me.

And I’m not one of those people who think their religion is the only one the world should have. I was simply explaining what my beliefs were. I mean, I’m pretty open-minded.

Anyways, I celebrate Christmas (Dec. 25) and Easter (varies). That’s pretty much it.

I'm a Lutheran. Basically just edited Catholicism. I really enjoy my religion, but I don't go to youth groups etc because the people who go there are just a bit to excitable. I wouldn't mind becoming a pastor by profession, and I don't mind other faiths seeing as I personally think that you have the right to believe whatever you want.
