Dedication Ritual for Hekate with Pisces in Dark Moon. Plus Celebrating SHINee’s Jonghyun’s Birthday!

Tonight I rededicated myself to the Goddess Hekate. She and I have spent quite a few lifetimes together and I’m glad I was finally able to be in the right mindset to work with Her again. Her signs were everywhere after I decided not to work with Her back in 2016. But Her love for me, at least in this lifetime, shows that no matter how one bad time (both in this lifetime and in one other) can turn into something beautiful.

I made some bread for Her (recipe below) while my dog Lucas watched in curiosity. The three candles are all dedicated to spirits, reapers, and ghosts I work with.

I wanted Jonghyun to be a part of the ritual more or less because he kind of asked. Not with words this time but with his aura. I could tell he was wanting some love so naturally it was the perfect time to include him.

We officially celebrated his birthday that morning around 2am-4am (Korean time would have still been the 8th). He got to see what his fortune was from a fortune cookie I got from PF Changs a few months back. Haha I hate these cookies, but him and R find them fun. We watched documentaries on Mormon polygamy and pretty much hung out.

But during the day I wanted to focus on preparing for the ritual with Hekate.

Before cooking with Her during twilight, I did astral travel with Her to Her cave where She gave me a wine colored tea that was very earthy. She then led me out of Her cave and we followed a path until I saw one of my past lives (we’ll call her L) in the woods. She has been astral travelling on her own (she’s the only one I allow to do this) where she has collected fruits and breads as a peace offering.

My spirit children with Kunxi (reaper) made a mess of some Others’ lives and I went there with L and Hekate to mend relations. It was just a situation that got blown out of proportion apparently. So offering these things felt right. I mean what do you do when your kid has a broken heart but you liked their lover? So I told the elder, or one of the main elders, that there was no ill will on my part and hoped they didn’t suffer too much because of them. Naturally I apologized on behalf of my spirit kids (now around 18). The elder told me not to worry and there was no I’ll will on her part. With that we said goodbye and I was ready to cook.

After that then came the bread making in the dark with the dog. After the bread was made it was night and since I had made a weather spell earlier that day to not rain during this time, Sirius (Hekate’s star) shone bright and brilliant as you can see above.

What it was like earlier in contrast to the above pictures.

During the ritual I set my keys, wolf Grimoire, and the bread by the crossroad of my culdisac. I pricked my finger and made a vow to one day become her priestess and to dedicate this life to Her. Earlier that day She told me that while Longmu is indeed my mother Goddess, Hekate is my matron and teacher.

I am excited for the road ahead. Finally able to say I know my path.

Alright now what yall been waiting for. The recipe for my offering bread.

Basic Offering Bread for Hekate:

  • 2 cups all purpose flower
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 large egg
  • Cinnamon powder to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • Minced garlic to taste.
  • 2 table spoons of nutritional yeast.
  • Mix in pyrex dish until batter is smooth.
  • In a small frying pan add roughly 1 tablespoon of olive oil for each flatbread.
  • Cook on medium low.
  • Wait until the edges of the side facing you are crisp. Flip and allow bubbles to form until the other side is cooked.
  • Then enjoy!

Alright, thanks for reading and happy witching!

Giving Into Fate.

So I am very well aware that Hecate or Hekate very much wants to work with me. We tried this relationship once back in 2014-2016. I tested and failed and my punishment was madness. But I have come to realize, the madness was a gift. I wasn’t ready for any kind of priestess work. Especially since I was told often by Hecate that She wanted me to become a goddess. That’s something I’m not comfortable with, but instead of listening back then I offended Her by not listening to reason. She was testing me to see if I wanted power.

I passed that part but failed to listen why. She wanted me to have ambition but not too much. But back then I had very little ambition due to being gatekept by ex friends. I kept thinking I was lesser even though I had very little trials to go through at the times. Deities were blessing me left and right and my ex friend was jealous of it. They came out and said so. Hiding was the best form of not feeling like I was hurting someone else’s spiritual growth.

But Hecate felt that was very wrong of me to do. Why suppress and digress when I could of had success. I guess back then I felt like I needed tribulation to experience real divine love. That was the ptsd and the religious trauma talking plus being under the same roof as my oppressor at the time. Hecate wanted to give me power and responsibility knowing full well my intention would be to work and not have others do my work.

Becoming a magikal healer is something I’ve always wanted to do. But to heal you must reveal. And to reveal myself would be revealing my past lives and their effect on my life today. That kind of vulnerability would be hard for me but even if I’m deemed insane at least I won’t be controlled by the mundane.

So this next Pisces Dark Moon I’ll be signing a contract with Hecate that I am ready now to be on the track again to becoming her Priestess. How exactly what are the steps to that? Well, I’m not too sure except I would need to learn under a priestess myself. Searching for one is another thing entirely as is certification. But I feel I am at a place now where I can devote myself again.

The one thing that I wish to accomplish is to allow new witches the same unbiased approach to magik and to allow them to grow without gatekeeping their experiences.

Hopefully, things will be different this time. At least a good kind of different. I am not friends with that person anymore and since then I have felt stronger in my magik. Energy vampires, even ones that claim being an ex vampire, are still going to take your energy and make it theirs. I allowed it more times than once with ex friends. Another thing is I feel more mature in my magik. Being in my early thirties and having done the craft for 16 years the cycle feels complete somehow, ready to start something new.

This spring has had some sadness but ultimately had some hopeful beginnings.

I’ll update everyone further once I have done the ritual.

Happy Witching ya’ll!

Of Comings and Goings.

Today was my grandmother’s funeral, my last remaining grandparent. I have yet to cry but maybe that’s because I’ve prepared for such times. It was strange. The day she died, ironically Groundhog day, I didn’t see her ghost but at the funeral I saw her spirit wander. She was confused and quiet, but she heard the music in my head I was playing for her. She smiled at that. She wore the necklace I made her and her favorite dress that matched. Serendipitous how that worked out. During the service I kept thinking of a memory of when I was 6 years old with her telling me to play the piano that’s now in my living room. There was a porcelain book with painted daisies, her favorite flower, that my mother made for her sitting on the too of the piano. It had been a warm yet breezy autumn morning. As I played for her, my tiny hands rambling on the keys, I eventually found a melody which turned into a song. Possibly my first. I called it Daisies in the Wind. As we buried her I thought of the melody and saw her watching over me. During the last prayer over her grave a gale rushed by and I opened my eyes to see her ghost was gone, like a daisy in the wind. I smiled and said goodbye. I could hear her say she loved me. I smiled and said I loved her too.

Now, for some happier news I went to a metaphysical shop recently and got some stones, a new oracle deck, and these awesome statues!

Chibi Anubis is so precious!
Turquoise Kuan Yin is so pretty and serene.

Anubis likes his chibi-ized self. I wanted to pay homage to Him since He is the one who helped me decide that mortuary school is my career path. He was also there throughout the whole process with my grandmother seeing her die before me and helping me remember all the things she wanted with her in her casket. Kunxi, the former Joseung Saja, also helped a lot. These two are the sweetest with the dead.

Kuan Yin has also been a comfort for me lately. When I saw Her statue I knew I had to get it. She truly is a beautiful deity to love.

I also got myself the Kali Oracle which I love! Kali has been calling to me for ages. Her fierce yet graceful love is something I’ve always been attracted to.

In this reading I did what my inner self needs to focus on and what my outer self needs to focus on. The inner self card is Krishnau and talked about reaching desires through purification of fire. Funny, since my moon sign is the fire sign Sagittarius. It’s a very introspective card allowing myself to experience Kali though the warmth of purifying fire.

The outer self card Kama if Kali focused on seeking pleasure and joy but not in the hedonistic sense, but rather finding joy in self care and dedicating this to Kali as a form of worship. I thought that was perfect. Making beauty from the mundane as a form of offering.

These comings of deities and goings of loved ones is a part of spiritual growth in my opinion. I feel as if I am no longer a caged bird but rather a newly born phoenix rising from the ashes of rebirth. I am excited to see what lays ahead for me with my many deities and spirits to lead me and with my ancestors to guide me.
