Spiritual Feminism ~ What's it all about?

What's it all about?... It's about embracing the feminine divine.  It's about matriarchal divinity and the mysteries revealed.  It's about connecting with the feminine aspect of Spirit.  It's about connecting with 45 goddesses from around the world!  -- Cultural Appropriation... Bring it on!  I'm an American; I'm a blend of numerous cultures and peoples with every generational step back I take... from parents, to grandparents, to great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, and beyond.  It's all about learning how to incorporate Spirit into our lives; it's about learning to love ourselves and feed our egos with healthy affirmations.  It's about self-empowerment; it's about learning to empower and support each other!

Listen to the following radio interview for an
in-depth discussion on these topics and more!


  You'll find all of this and more in my book,
The Spiritual Feminist

Florida Water Recipe

Does anyone need a recipe to make their own Florida Water?  Yes?... Well, here it is:

Two cups of vodka or any alcohol of your preference
Two tablespoon of orange flower water
6 drops of essential oil of bergamot
6 drops of essential oil of rosemary
6 drops of essential oil of lavender
6 drops of essential oil of rose attar
3 drops of essential oil of sage
2 drops of essential oil of neroli

Mix all of these ingredients together and let it sit for a couple days.  Note that you can adjust any of the essential oils, strength-wise, to attain a scent that is to your liking.

If there's anyone reading this who doesn't know what Florida Water is used for, it's mainly for cleansing and protection, but there are other uses I'm going to list below.  There is a company who produces a marketable brand of Florida Water, and you can find them online easy. (So I'm going to be lazy and not go searching for it right now.)

Here's a list of uses for you, but that's not saying that some of you might not think of a few new ways to use Florida Water:

1. Cleanse your house by adding salt and Florida Water to a bucket of water and mop the floors.
2. Cleanse your magical items and crystals with a cloth and Florida Water.
3. Cleanse your altar and your magical space before casting a circle.
4. Provide it as a thank you gift to the deities or energies you're working with.
5. Use it in your bath by adding a few drops in the water to cleanse your aura and rejuvenate the senses.
6. Put Florida Water in your palms and clap them to raise vibrations and to give you a quick energy boost.
7. It can be used in your rooms for a Happy Home and to combat melancholy and depression.
8. Florida Water can replace Holy water in magical practices and rituals.
9. Add Florida Water and Van Van oil together in order to attract better clientele.
10. Use it to dress candles for magical spells and rituals for Protection, Communication with Spirits, Cleansing and Breaking Hexes, and to remove malevolent magic.
11. Add a few drops to a bottle of ink and use it to empower your written petitions.

It's Q&A Time Again! ~ Questions from Blog Readers (video)




This video contains questions posted by my blog readers at Magickal Connections. It consists of some pretty desperate personal situations along with how-to questions when it comes to some of the spells at my online Book of Shadows.
Please be respectful in the comments. There are a lot of people out there going through some very rough times. I know that sometimes it’s difficult to be objective, but that’s what I try very hard to do with each individual that submits a comment at my blog, website, or YouTube channel. With that said, note that I do not hesitate to give sound (sometimes difficult to listen to) mundane advice, especially when personal problems or issues are coming up due to poor decisions and life choices. We also have to realize that these brief comments don’t give us all the facts, and they come from unknown and unsubstantiated sources.
To my readers who posted these questions ~ I hope that you were able to find some help here, along with a little inspiration and encouragement!  I wish you all the best on both your magickal and your mundane adventures.

Oils, n' Potions, n' Powders ~ Oh, my!


Below is a list of magickal oils, potions, n’ powders you can find at my website, The Witch’s Corner ~





Health & Healing Oil
This ointment is used to “dress” candles used for healing or to maintain continued good health.  Annoint a green candle with this oil for healing of the body; a yellow candle for healing of the mind; a red candle for the physical healing of the reproductive system– a yellow candle can be burned along with the red one for mental healing of sexual abuse victims.

Exorcism/Purification Oil 
Anoint a black candle with this oil to exorcise those demons that are bothering you– whether the irritation is physical or mental.  Anoint a white candle with this oil and burn it to purify your physical space or your mental/physical state.  I’ve used this oil to exorcise entities haunting my home, and I’ve used it to exorcise people from my life who were causing problems.

Mars Astrological Oil
This ointment promotes courage, strength, aggression, sexual energy, healing after surgery, exorcisms, and defensive magick.  I’ve found this to be an especially effective and strong magickal tool, and I want to caution you that this oil can also banish.  Use it wisely.

Witches’ Oil
This is an “all purpose” oil which can be used to annoint the body prior to rituals or spell casting.  It can also be used to dress candles.

Psychic Oil
Annoint your third eye chakra with this oil before doing divination of any kind,  or annoint a lavendar candle to call up and strengthen your psychic powers.

Sex Oil
Carve your name and the name of the one you desire on a red candle; annoint it with this oil to ignite passion and lust.  Then stand back and be prepared for some fireworks!  This oil can be made to accomodate a monogamous couple, instilled with herbs to maintain fidelity.  If you wish, you can email me with your personal preferences.  We can work together to create a unique oil with the qualities that you desire.

Prosperity Oil
This oil is used to annoint candles for money magick.  It can also be used to annoint stones conducive to wealth and prosperity and carried in your purse or wallet.  It will enhance and draw the energies that stimulate the acquisition of money in many ways.

Summoning Powder
This powder does just what its name suggests– it summons someone to you.  If you are in possession of a piece of clothing belonging to the individual you wish to summon, particularly intimate apparell, sprinkle it with this powder.  You can also sprinkle this powder on a piece of correspondence you send to this person– although in this day and age of terrorism, I would be cautious about sending anything through the mail that has a powdery dust on it.

Black Cat Oil
Black cat oil is used to break bad spells and hexes, to attract the opposite sex, and to call in the spirits– benevolent, magickally oriented spirits.  The ingredients in black cat oil is slightly different to attract the opposite sex, so make sure that you select the correct pay pal button.

Four Thieves Vinegar 
Four Thieves Vinegar is a crucial component in many banishing and commanding spells.  It can also be used to banish illness.  It’s reputed to drive away danger and rescue its user from disaster.

Graveyard Dirt
This item is exactly what its name implies– soil taken from the consecrated ground of a cemetery.  Graveyard dirt is a necessary ingredient in many hexing/cursing spells.  On the flip side, it is also the key ingredient in many benevolent spells, including those for health and healing.

Banishing Oil
Banishing oils are generally used in banishing spells, whether you’re trying to rid yourself of undesirable people, situations, habits, or things.  Just make sure that what you think you want banished, you really do– getting something back is much more work than making something go away.

Command & Compel Oil
“Commanding Oil” is generally used in binding spells– to get another to bend to your will and do what you want and to gain control of a situation.  This oil has a strong history in voodoo and New Orleans hoodoo culture and is used almost exclusively to exert your will over others.

Uncrossing Oil
This oil is most often used to remove hexes/curses placed upon you.  It’s also brought into service to turn bad luck around and is used in spells for just such results.

New items! ~




Money Wash
Sprinkle money wash across the threshold of your front door or business to attract money.  Sprinkle a little money wash in your mop water and scrub those floors to bring in cash.  Use it in a variety of ways for your own unique magickal practices.

Ancestor Oil 
This magickal oil is filled with the herbs and special items used to connect you with the spirit world.  Use this oil on a candle, or on yourself, when you wish to thin the veil between the world of the living and those who’ve passed.  This is the perfect oil to use before divination, séances, or the practice of mediumship.

 

Helpful Hint:
Once you purchase your bottle of magickal oil, never let the bottle run out of oil.  You can treat your first bottle, which will be filled with herbs and other magickal things, as a “mother”.  The energy is there, the original recipe is there, just keep re-filling your bottle with a base oil of your choice.

WarningThese oils/potions/powders are NOT meant to be ingested!  Most of these oils could be applied to the skin, but there may be an occasional potion that contains a skin irritant…so if in doubt, just don’t!

For Magickal Products safe to use on your skin, or in your bath, visit this page:

The Jesus Dilemma ~ What do you say to them?

First, I want to start off by saying that I respect ALL religions.  I want to start off by saying that there is no one true right path.  I want to start off by saying that each individual has the right to choose their spiritual path and the beliefs that they adhere to, and they deserve this right to be respected by the world community without coercion, ridicule, or prejudice.

I have nothing against Christianity or Jesus.  I have dear family members who follow this spiritual path as well as individuals close to our family circle, and I would not think of interfering with their decision, or degrading their practices, beliefs, and dogmas.  Among my own immediate family circle, we are a wide and diverse group.  My seven children include, not only Christian practitioners, but Buddhists, agnostics, Wiccans, atheists, and more.  Apparently this is something that makes us unique as a group of people that are close knit in spite of our varied and often conflicting spiritual beliefs.

It's all good.

The ONLY thing that I find offensive about Christianity and the Jesus cult is the hard-core Christians who have a very obnoxious attitude of "My way or the highway"; their incessant domineering insistence that you must believe what they believe; and their often disrespectful attitude and response to people of other spiritual paths.  Sometimes this is very over-bearing and "in your face", and other times it's very subtle with biting quips and off hand remarks.

How should non-Christians respond when confronted by disrespect regarding our spiritual paths, practices, and deities without being disrespectful to someone elses' spirituality?

It's a conundrum.

A brief note to Christians determined to convert the non-Chrisitian ~

1.  Just as grounded and passionate as you are about your Christian faith, we are just as grounded and passionate about our faith.

2.  "But the Bible says..." -- You are assuming that everyone in the world views the Bible as a divine work from the spirit world.  Not so.  I can't speak for other non-Christians, but I view the Bible as a piece of literature written by men, from a male perspective, over the course of centuries, and modified much through various translations since then.  (Although the original was bad enough.)  There is nothing divine about it to me.  As a matter of fact, as a woman I find it very insulting and reflective of the negative attitudes towards women that prevailed back in the day, and even survives to some degree in modern times.

What the Bible says does not impress me.

3.  "You need God in your life..." -- I'm assuming as in "god" you are referring to a super-natural entity of a high vibration.  If this is the case, I call this entity "Goddess", and She indeed enriches my life and life experiences through my connection with Her and the daily spiritual practices I use to connect with Her energy.  I can only speak for myself when I say that I view divinity as a universal consciousness expressed around the world through a variety of pantheons, spiritual practices, mystical stories, and archetypes.  However you personally connect with "Divinity", it will be a unique and blessed experience.  Just because your experience is different from my experience, it does not invalidate my experience, or the higher vibrational entity that I connect with on my spiritual journey.

4.  "I'll pray for you..." -- Under certain circumstances, this can be a positive statement to hear.  For instance, you're facing a problem or a decision and close friends or family who are of the Christian faith want good things to happen for you.  It's like saying, I'm on your side, or I'll add my energy for a positive outcome, or I'm concerned about you and I want to help.  But when this comes from the lips of someone who is trying to convert you, someone who has pestered and preached to you about your spirituality, someone who has been at you to try and convince you that you are wrong in your beliefs... Then this statement can be chilling.

All thoughts are energy, no matter who they come from or what they consist of.  The energy that these people will be sending out into the universe will be very negative and conflicting with your soul and your connection to divinity.  Personally, I view this as the ultimate insult.

I like to respond without being negative or rude if at all possible.  I usually say, "Well, while you're praying for me, I'll be casting a spell for you."  This generally brings about a very shocked reaction.  Maybe they never considered that you would reciprocate in kind, or that this was even an option.

5.  "It's heaven or hell..." --  Actually, this is inaccurate.  The non-Christian has so many other options.  First, I have to say that the idea of "hell" came from the Bible, the book that was written by controlling domineering males who wanted to intimidate and frighten people, which would make it so much easier to control people.  So we can just let hell go all together.

Other spiritualities have a variety of beliefs in what happens to us after death.  I can only speak for myself.  The following perceptions were typed out randomly, as they came to mind, in no specific order:

I believe in life after death; I also believe in reincarnation.  I believe that it's possible for some very enlightened gifted individuals to connect with the spirits of those who have passed and communicate with them.  I believe in the Wiccan idea of  "The Summerland".  I believe that certain soul connections are so strong and indomitable that they reconnect through many life times.  I believe that the soul is set free of the physical body at death.  I believe we have spirit guides to help us through major transitions in life, which includes death.

The Miracle of the Cards

Quote:

"How can I explain to the new tarot enthusiast the connection between the water on the six of swords and the woman sitting before me who lost a small child by drowning decades ago?  What miracle allows the human mind to be inspired to see a vision of this event triggered only from the image on a small paper card?  Personal interpretation-- Intuitive Reading-- will be your key to successfully reading the tarot."

Amazon Ranking!

My book The Spiritual Feminist is ranked #170 in the Goddess category at Amazon right now... Not too shabby! Woot!

https://www.amazon.com/Spiritual-Feminist-Amythyst-Raine-Hatayama/dp/1782799699/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

I stumbled upon this information by accident today when I was updating my FB pages.  The numbers at Amazon are in a constant state of flux and change, so I don't really keep track of this information intentionally, but I might pay closer attention now.  This book has its own Facebook page (as all of my books do):

https://www.facebook.com/thespiritualfeminist?ref=hl

"So many people throughout my life have told me who I am, what I must do, what I can't do, what I have to complete, and what I will never be able to accomplish, and then I met the Goddess." (From The Spiritual Feminist) ...The Spiritual Feminist empowers today's modern woman through the Goddess, connecting her to ancient matriarchal divinity and spiritual practices which invoke this energy.

Today's Inspiration ~ The Sun

The major arcana card, The Sun, reeks of happiness; but sometimes this happiness comes at a price, and sometimes it comes after a long period of intense seeking and personal revelations. There is virtually no fairy tales in real life with happy ever after endings and stagnant heroes and heroines who remain frozen in one perfect moment of time and space.   And this is not the artificial kind of "happiness" that the tarot card, The Sun, represents. It has more depth than that.

A moment of happiness snatched from the teeth of sorrow is much more profound, with a much larger impact on the human psyche, than a life lived in one eternal "Leave it to Beaver" episode.  And that’s what this tarot card is all about.

Tarot Review/Unboxing ~ Oracle of Mystical Moments



You'll love this deck, People! It's got a very vintage feel about it, both the art and the characters. It's also very whimsical with an "Alice in Wonderland" atmosphere to it. The colors are rich and elegant. It should be at the top of your "must have" list!





Today's Topic ~ Book of Shadows!

Here's mine.  Would you like to share something about yours?... a comment, or a photo, or a video?  When did you start it?  What kinds of things do you add to it?  How do you organize it?  What are your future plans for it?  Who are you going to pass it to?  Do you let people see it, or are you very secretive about it?  What inspires you?

Good Morning Daylight Savings Time!

I'm looking forward to the Americano Espresso I'm going to pick up at Scooter's Coffee Shop on my way to work. It will help with the DST transition. :)

Busy Week ~ Publishing, Revamping, aka I Love Amazon!

It's been a ridiculously hectic week, and I'm kind of sorta' proud of myself for coming through in the middle of a raging achy cold, what my grandmother would call "a case of the cruds".

I've been sick since last Friday, went to work on Monday, came home and started editing a manuscript at 5pm, for my very first book that was published in 2010 by Labyrinth House, Tarot: A Witch's Journey.  I contacted my editor for this book who was excited and gracious, and immediately acknowledged the return of my copyright.  (Yay!  First hurdle accomplished!).  The next thing to do was to bring this manuscript up and start the tedious, very non-fun part of writing called editing. Ugh.  But I was driven with determination and a lot of excitement experienced through a haze of some really awesome cold medicine. (Did I say that?)

Many hours later, it was 2am to be exact, I clicked the final magnificent Amazon KDP button that says in bold and very dramatic letters, "Click to Publish". It was kind of amazing, and I felt kind of like I was clicking something life-changing, like an executioner who pulls the switch. (That might be two really different things, but I imagine a huge adrenaline rush with either one.)  Omg, that done, I flopped into bed with a terrific headache and the knowledge that the gods at Amazon would do the rest.

I'm so proud to show you the cover of the book that I gave birth to (again), without any anesthetic, mind you.  And just as all new mothers say, "It was well worth any pain or discomfort."  And would I do it again?  "Hell, yes!", all new mothers say, cradling their precious in their arms, glowing with their accomplishment, a little giddy from all the hormones.
