Midsummer Night’s Dream

When the sun is so high and the moon is so full

When you feel the strong veil of a mystery’s pull

Dance to the rhythm and sing to the tune

This midsummer night’s dream is about to end soon

For ages and aeons you wandered aside

Searching for signs in the dark of midnight

You spoke to the faerie and talked to the gods

You built walls of magick against all the odds

As you cast every spell and you brewed every potion

With cards and your runes faced the glimpse of intuition

You made up your life and its every adventure

Its crests and its falls in your fountain of splendour

Reveling in moments with joy and delight

You danced in the shadows and took astral flight

You marveled and praised the creations of mind

While the truth everywhere and threadbare you could find

To know and to will and to dare are the keys

But you won’t find the door till you just silent be

8 Solid Tips for Banishing Negativity this Shani Weekend

The cycles of time and celestial tides are here to guide us again, this time to banish or end all things you consider negative in your life! While on 3rd of June Saturn is fully illuminated, 4th of June is a Saturday named after Saturn, and an amavasya or no-moon night that is usually believed to be great for ending of anything unwanted, 5th of June is the annual Shani Jayanti dedicated to the planetary lord Saturn – the god of limitations and endings. Here is how you can align yourself with the natural cycles of the universe in mind, body and spirit this weekend:

  1. DIG IT OUT: Introspect after meditating, let your deeper thoughts surface upwards, know your fears and you will be able to erase them soon. Being positive is not a cover-up job of hiding negativity or glossing over it. Being positive is a real inner transformation which you can do only with great strength and self-confidence. Delve into your unconscious and try to really face all those things you considered negative. These could be fears you have regarding your life, fears concerning your future, guilts about your past, regrets and sorrows, old pain and hurt, anger or anything else that should not be around any more. For those of you who think about the rest of the universe too – all those things about the world that made you sad, angry, fearful or worried. Write them down with BLACK ink on white paper. This way you are symbolically bringing out all those deeply buried negative emotions that were unwantedly controlling your life. Now you are in-fact gaining power over them with this simple act of writing them down. The colour black is connected to Saturn and symbolises endings.ink
  2. ASSERT YOUR POWER: At this point of time you are no longer someone who fears. You are aware that you and only you are in-charge of your life as an enlightened being. As With-In So With-Out! This is a truth of the universe that there is nothing that can happen outside which is not inside your mind already, especially your unconscious. Those people who merely think positive are often unable to achieve their goals because they have not done the deeper work of releasing the negative emotional blocks and negative beliefs they carried inside them all their life and possibly several lifetimes. Now with the awareness of what you feared and enlisting them all out, you have taken a major step towards really being powerful. Know that you are the single most powerful person in your YOUniverse who can NOW change everything for the better. As you are your own universe in the process of remaking, you know that Saturn is part of you – the power you have to end what you must so that something better can replace it. Affirm ‘I am the MOST powerful person in my universe and I choose to change these things right now’ person-1177312_960_720
  3. CONNECT WITH YOUR INNER SATURN: Within you lies the great and glorious master who can both transform the negative and manifest the positive. Your transformational power is symbolised by Saturn. Those rings around the planet remind you of the power you have to keep everything in careful control. You can limit whatever is in excess, whether it be a habit or addiction, a pattern that was negative or anything that was self-limiting. The planet is just a sign or symbol in divination that brings you back to your inner self. Its power is your inner power. The yantra below will help you connect with your inner Saturn. Focus upon it for a few minutes while repeating ‘Om Shanicharaye Namaha!’ and know Saturn to be a part of you.Saturn-Yantra
  4. SAY NO TO THE UNWANTED: The powers within you are at their peak and it is impossible for any negative energy to remain in your life from now onwards. You are consciously choosing to let go of all the unwanted. Firmly assert this by crossing out the negative things you wrote earlier in your list with black ink to mark their logical end. This means that they are no longer having any energy or power in your life. They have been cancelled out and released for good.crossout
  5. LET IT GO: As a sign that you have released the unwanted out of your system, you can now safely burn to ashes and flush away the crossed out sheet as if a heavy load has been taken away from you right now. Do this with conviction without any shred of doubt. Be eco-friendly in disposal and know that everything is being transformed by nature to something more useful in the process.Burning_4.jpg
  6. CLEANSE AND CLEAR: Letting go is complete only if you feel it from within. Your inner mind and soul will feel and know the difference. To make it real try smudging using incense, herbs such as sage or aromas that feel refreshing and cleansing to you. Diffuse this around you and on your body. Clean up your home, office,garden and every corner that felt clogged or blocked. Fix up or throw away gadgets and things that were unuseful. Clear up your desk and papers. You will know the value of this exercise in the form of increased prosperity, better health and peace of mind very soon.incense-stick-405899_960_720.jpg
  7. TRANSFORMATION: For each of the negative thing you have released and removed from your life, think of what you must now replace them with. Allow for a few days to feel the refreshing changes coming into your life as you have just released the negativity. In those days make a new list this time with red ink on white paper, thinking positive thoughts only and focusing on those worthy goals that make you truly happy with no doubt that they bring you only good. Red is the colour of life and vitality. Keep this positive list somewhere where safe where you can return later to refer to them and note your progress in the coming days, weeks or months. Know that each of your positive goals will manifest as and when the time is right. positive-455580_960_720.jpg
  8. GIVE THANKS: All things whether negative or positive were here in your life as a reminder of those deeply buried and repressed ideas or beliefs in your unconscious mind. You were here to heal and transform yourself and everything you saw and encountered in your journey in each lifetime was here to help you remember and heal. This Shani Jayanti is a good time to thank the universe for all these experiences that have helped you discover and rediscover yourself. You can give thanks to Saturn by offering sweets made of black til, donating black clothing or blankets, feeding black animals such as crows or black dogs and offering poojas or rituals to Saturn in temples dedicated to this planet as a symbolic thanks to this specific power. Doing these rituals mechanically is often unuseful but with awareness and self-realization their power is truly felt.

Litha (Midsummer) Blessings and a Warm Welcome to HP Rev Angel Serrao and the new team at MAGICK, Mumbai

Its Litha or Midsummer, my favorite time of the year, when the faeries dance with the Goddess and all of us to celebrate Love and Light. Today I take great pleasure in welcoming Rev. Angel Serrao (Pendragon) as the High Priest of the Earth Healing Temple at Mumbai. He is joined by Rev. Poojan Solanki, Rev. Pooja Jhawar and Rev. Pooja Sharma to form the capable and efficient team directly carrying out the Earth Healing services and rituals at Magick, Mumbai everyday.

Some more about the new Earth Healing Team:

Image

Rev. Angel Serrao (also called HP Rev. Angel Pendragon) has been installed in 2014 as the High Priest and Chief Counselor at Magick (Earth Healing Temple of Global Wicca in Mumbai). The art of making things happen just comes very naturally to the Wiccan degree holder from California. Since childhood he has had visions of divinity and has been drawn to the magical path.

With experience as a Christian priest as well as in conducting Hindu rituals, Angel perfectly represents the Global Wicca ideology of global spirituality and his expertise in Wicca helps him be an interfaith healer and counsellor too. According to Rev. Angel Serrao, “All faiths, religions and spiritual systems are based on and inspired by nature and at the Global Wicca’s Earth Healing Temple, we aim to help people practically understand and learn to be in a state of balance with nature through the inner self.”

Angel let go his corporate career of several years to find peace and joy in spiritual healing service. He is simultaneously pursuing a Master’s degree in Psychology along with his magickal career. Angel conducts group healings and rituals, as well as counsels clients individually through a variety of healing and divination tools with house visits available on request through Magick. He also teaches the courses of Global Wicca, can initiate learners and helps build awareness among several followers by being a mentor and a guide.

Angel Serrao can be contacted at Magick on 02265250328 and 9867859058 by prior appointment for courses, workshops, readings and healing sessions or spells.

 

Rev. Poojan Solanki, Full Time Priest – Global Wicca’s Earth Healing Temple at Magick

Poojan Solanki (also known as Rev. Aurora Rhiannon) is trained in Wiccan healing in the Global Wicca Tradition. He serves as Priest at the Earth Healing Temple at Magick, on 16th road, Bandra West, Mumbai. He has specialised in both Reiki as well as Pranic Healing and various associated skills, making him highly skilled as a healer.

Poojan loves astrology as well as tarot, combining both with other methods of divination such as runes and psychic readings. Using his intuition and healing focus he tries to counsel clients and suggests healing alternatives on the spot. He also provides hands on healing within the session as required. Poojan handles the energy of all magickal crystals, amulets and other items personally and empowers them during the session for the clients he meets.

He is a science graduate having specialised in Biotechnology, besides being an energy wizard at Magick.

Poojan Solanki can be contacted at Magick on 02265250328 and 9867859058 by prior appointment for courses, workshops, readings and healing sessions or spells.

Rev. Pooja Sharma – Priestess – Global Wicca’s Earth Healing Temple at Magick

Image

Pooja Sharma (also known as Rev. Flurite Meadowseet) is passionate about Tarot, Angel and Fairy card reading to help heal the past and create a positive future. Pooja has been trained in Tarot and Wiccan healing by Tarot India Network and the Global Wicca Tradition. She serves as Priestess at the Earth Healing Temple at Magick, on 16th road, Bandra West, Mumbai.

Pooja educates her clients on how to make informed choices as the meaning of each card relates to the real life situations. A reading with Pooja Sharma is aimed at helping you take charge of their own life, believe in yourself and your innate power over your destiny which is nothing but your own creation. Pooja likes to conclude her Tarot Readings by drawing an oracle card or Fairy card for an uplifting, lighthearted message that ties the reading together and leaves anyone feel inspired.

In her words, “I have learnt and experienced that Tarot does not dictate the future, rather it reveals the direction in which we are currently heading. The future is always subject to change and is entirely reliant on the actions and decisions made by the person whom the reading is for.”

Pooja is also a management graduate and also uses her intuition as an HR professional apart from Magick.

Pooja Sharma can be contacted at Magick on 02265250328 and 9867859058 by prior appointment for courses, workshops, readings and healing sessions or spells.

Rev. Swati Prakash – Founder and Head of Global Wicca Tradition and Magick

http://www.swatiprakash.com

Renowned spiritual healerSwati Prakash (also known as Rev. Astra Wishkap), now based in UK was self-initiated into the realms of divination, magick and transformation at the age of 10 in Delhi when she spontaneously started creating spells, rituals and horoscopes, a skill inherited from her past lives. Her interest in the occult grew with several psychic insights that took her deeper into realms of Wicca, Dream-working, Past Life Therapy, Energy Healing, Spellcrafting, Astrology and Tarot with help by various teachers.

She is well known for being a Wiccan leader heading the Global Wicca Tradition and its Earth Healing Temple as the Head Priestess. She has developed and authored the three year Global Wicca course and has initiated others in the field. Wicca is a new age religion focused on nature and how to manifest a positive reality. The Global Wicca Tradition is the first full-fledged Wiccan tradition to have a temple in India.

Swati gained degrees in Psychology and Masters in Management at Mumbai, while simultaneously gaining degrees of MD in Alternative Medicine, Advanced Past Life Regression Therapy, Inner Child Therapist, Applied Vedic Astrology, Master of Reiki and Wicca degrees.

After spending over six years heading a Public Relations Agency while juggling her time as President of Tarot India Network, in 2008, Swati began Magick, the first Wiccan and magickal store in India, so that she could dedicate herself full time in the spiritual field. Magick aims at providing spiritual healing solutions to create a more positive life through the dynamic young team at Mumbai.

Swati was the presenter and spiritual healer on UTV Bindaas in The Chair –India’s 1st paranormal reality show. She has been presenting tarot on broadcast media such as MTV, Star Gold and has been featured in dozens of television stories including Mano Ya Na Mano and Sambhav Kya. She has written regular columns on Tarot, spiritual advise and Astrology for various periodicals such as Times of India, Mother and Baby, Express Starteller, Go Air’s in-flight magazine and has graced the cover page of Chitralekha magazine’ tarot feature as well.

She has presented over the last several years, various seminars and workshops for groups and institutes such as IIT Mumbai, SIES college, Rotary International, using guided meditation and visualization to create a shift in consciousness.

She is distinguished to be the first tarot expert in India to create an Asian Tarot deck of 22 Major Arcana cards based on Literature for the Museum of Tarots in Italy, in a collaboration of 22 Tarot artists from India. This deck has now been published by the Museum of Tarots in Italy, and has also featured in the book ‘In the Court of Trumps’ Volume I – published by The Ministry for Culture and Arts – Rome, a landmark achievement in the global tarot scenario. Swati has also headed the India division of Witchschool International, the world’s leading online Wiccan school, for several years.

According to Swati, “A spiritual search is not aimed at distancing ourselves from the outside world. It helps us recognize our life as a gift, to live in complete awareness and to create a more positive and happier reality. We must realize that destiny is not created by forces outside us. We are constantly influencing our life and there lives a beautiful ‘witch’ or magickal person within each one of us.”

The Calling

Day and night until today
For their own needs all people prayed
Their little worlds of woes and fears
Their little ones, all near and dear
Each one worried for their own
For their own things their love was shown
Mundane are lives so full of care
Victims of their own despair
And all along all of this time
While most were I, me, self and mine
A world of wonders hid in dark
Unseen by all except a spark
Those few who cared of things unknown
Who looked beyond what was their own
Who let their egos melt and merge
Into the One who they researched
Who focused, wondered and rejoiced
Who stood their ground and made their choice
Inspite of those who tried to kill
Their wisdom, knowledge and free will
Yes witches, wizards, people wise
Survived the darkness, force and lies
They patiently awaited for
A time reborn just like before
When sense and righteousness return
When people care to live and learn
The truths and mysteries of olde
Those things that turned to stories told
The legends, lore and myths all great
The ways to spin the yarns of fate
Those things you read in fairytales
Might just be true, follow the trails
The fairies, dragons, gnomes and sprites
And elements of power and might
The gods and goddesses are near
They want to see your love, not fear
All aspects of the universe
Parts of your soul you are meant to search
They are all around and all about
You never really gave a shout
Magick right below your nose
And all you saw were your own toes
You shrunk your mind and closed your heart
Refusing to accept your part
In your delusion you were stoned
You thought the earth was human owned
For those who wanted all the power
Spread their darkness very far
They broke the bridges to your soul
They blocked intuition, burnt the lore
They spread false fears and spoilt the name
So that the witches hung in shame
But you can’t hide the light for long
Soon the flame will burn all strong
For the Goddess is alive
She is your spirit and your life
Worship Her, your higher self
Better still, just cast a spell
But think beyond just little things
Soar above, now find your wings
About your higher nature learn
Retrace your path, to Her return

The Truth about Spirituality

Some people discovered what they thought was meditation…being quiet, passive, closed, sleepy or dull
They spent hours, days and years in this depressing state …imagining it to be the real thing
Escaping from the daily challenges of life, from life itself…wanting to be free
Some others found spirituality to be an excuse for careless, irresponsible or mindless behavior, even unethical in the extreme, Or an excuse to falsely justify negativity as a necessary part of balance and acceptance
They couldn’t be further from the truth
All the above is dullness, ignorance, negative energy or tamas
Spirituality is bright, aware, positive vibration
Its neither about mindlessness or losing your mind
Its about guiding your mind with something higher or ‘no mind’ which helps in being incharge of your mind, rising above it and not letting your mind be your block
Its about having no negative, stuck-up energies any more
Being free and flowing in a positive direction
Guided by the truth, love, universal good or divine light
Truly liberated, free of falsehood
When it becomes impossible for you to harm anyone or yourself
When you can no longer be corrupted or misled
When you are not passive, lethargic, inert or powerless anymore
When you use your power to create good, to destroy ignorance or evil
And to maintain balance and peace, both inner and outer
To utilise your time on earth purposefully
Being of some good use to yourself and the universe
That is sattvic life or spiritual living
Now that is what I call Magick!

Blessed Be

Being Spiritual

So many people speak of being spiritual these days.
Many like being called spiritual, not religious…(as if religion were a four letter word that has done no good…but Gawd, wasn’t this is the way it was experienced until the new age of Wicca, a spiritual scientific religion…but that’s besides the point)

The point is…what is being spiritual all about?
Is it about saffron robes, hooded capes, turbans, hats and other fancy dress?
Is it about being men with long grey hair on their chins and heads and large imposing decorations on the forehead?
Is it about sitting in tight postures and closed eyes for an hour or two?
Is it about chanting in sanskrit, greek or latin, especially in the middle of perfectly ordinary conversations?
(All of which I admit will make quite an instant impression in public and may even get a few to come over and touch your feet…and secretly many of our holy men owe their sudden and humungous popularity more to this drama and less to their teachings)

Now what is the meaning of being spiritual (and not just showing it)?

Firstly the word ‘spiritual’ is composed of spirit, which means it has to do something with our inner self. But in that case we all have this spirit within…right. Quite right, however not everyone was so far equally bothered about the spirit within us all…which largely differentiates being spiritual from being purely material in our awareness and behaviour.

We are born when spirit takes material or physical form through us and our surroundings. Hence from ever since we are born we are taught in our schools, colleges and nurseries, very vaguely, about how to conduct ourselves in the material world (even if focused mainly on theory than practice). Its another thing that we also learn through people and experiences over and above our school curricula, a whole lot of things I would rather put very ironically in the category of how NOT to conduct our life in the material world. But yes most of us are somewhat aware of our material body and surroundings, even if we are not quite adept at handling them very well.

But the fact that we are made of spirit in essence was revealed rather late to most people if revealed at all. And even if this were revealed, the first (or even second or third or fourth) reaction to this was…why should it matter? Yes spirit is not matter, but that doesnt mean that it doesnt matter. The interelationship of spirit and matter is of importance here.

Now Spirit (and I am not talking of our personal spirits or lost spirits but of Spirit) or Goddess or God if you prefer,  has created our matter or material life as quite beautiful and positive. It is through non awareness and mis-understanding of Spirit that we have abused, spoilt or eroded our material world. By getting in touch with the Spirit we can once again restore a loving balance and harmony in our lives and surroundings (and also heal our own little lost spirits or souls which expand and feel complete on integration with the Spirit).

Learn how to get in touch with the Spirit (even if you call it by another name such as Source, Universe, Goddess, God) through the right ways of meditation. And …also equally importantly, learn how to bring the beauty and wisdom of the Spirit into your daily existence by way of energy healing spells that channel the Spirit energy into the material world in accordance with the motto of As Above, So Below, or as Inside so Outside, or as With In so With Out.

Beware, Be Aware!

There is a popular misconception that anyone with any psychic power is highly divine, spiritual or positive.
Psychic powers belong to 6th chakra or third eye. Spirituality to 7th chakra or crown.
Not all psychics are spiritually exalted.
So just because someone is precognitive, magical or powerful kindly do not touch their feet or worship them yet.
Even if they are spiritually enlightened I doubt they would want you to touch their feet.
Know that a LOT of psychics have been observed to be definitely negative, manipulative, unethical or even creepy.

Another popular misconception is to regard every witch as Wiccan, and every Wiccan as a Wiccan priest or expert healer.
Being a witch is not equal to being Wiccan.
Wiccans are nature worshippers, followers of Harm None…. the Wiccan Rede…
Some people freely call themselves Wiccan while actually being depressed, harmful or negative magicians. They do not belong to the Wiccan faith.

Secondly being a Wiccan implies adherence to Wiccan faith. Just like every Hindu is not a pundit, every Christian is not priest, every Wiccan is not an expert healer. Only initiated clergy are, and in that too there are hierarchies and skill levels. Just saying Blessed Be and Merry Meet or Harm None or Goddess Bless does not qualify.

Now coming to the general topic of psychics and magical folk…you need to be aware of who you are dealing with.
The enlightenment level, the spiritual awareness, the energy of your healer, guru, teacher, guide is important here.
A lot of fortune tellers may be novices, a lot of people with psychic powers may be demonic or satanic or in other ways negative magicians for all you know. Do your research well before submitting your problems to their counsel. Do not be hypnotised, fooled, misled or pushed to the dark side just because someone bedazzles you with cryptic messages or clever tricks.

Occult power has nothing to do with spiritual energy.

Seek the counsel and company of those with true wisdom and genuine spiritual awareness.

And this often means being aware yourself. Learn the ways of the wise.

Be Aware.

Blessed be
