I do not pray for strength, for you show me the strength within me. I do not pray for courage, for I follow you willingly into battle. I do not pray for wisdom, for you teach me of the Crone within me. I do not pray for blessings, because I live each day in blessed Magick, following the ways of the wise. I do not pray for prosperity, for I live in gratitude of the abundance which flows through my life. I do not pray for love, for love runs like water to me through my family and friends.
I pray to remember these gifts, for in my despair I can lose my way, and lose my awareness that I am a daughter of your ways. I pray to remember that when I look into my image, your face is reflected there, and I can carry any burden because you live within me.
Hi there, I've been a solitary, eclectic pagan for about 20 years, off & on. I have always felt the draw of the Goddess & have acknowledged Her even when I really wasn't practicing. I'm not Wiccan & I really don't strictly follow a Celtic or Asatru path. I'm not into a lot of New Age hoo-ha that has infiltrated Paganism. I'm currently reading into the 1734 Tradition & Clan of Tubal Cain. I read books on Traditional Witchcraft, the Occult, The Robert Cochrane Letters, Evan John Jones, Doreen Valiente, Robin Artisson, Peter Paddon. I'm on a few Yahoo groups devoted to these topics, as well as others. I tend to stay away Llewellyn books, as I tend to find them on the "Fluffy" side of things. I'm currently learning all about the lost art of Enchantment through gesture & Visceral Magick. I am also a student of Southern & Appalachian Conjure.
