Om-Charging your Pendant or Talisman (psychic work)

Do you have a talisman that you have created, or a ring, or a pendant that is to serve as a special protection for yourself?  Now here’s a thing- Unless the item was made by you (creatively, in a state of magical state over many hours or even days..while holding psychic focus), it is not going to be having any sort of `special powers’.  The only exception is if the item was made by another Priest / Priestess/ Ritual Magician or Witch..and charged with a special intention.

One further exception will be when the item or artefact n question is simply a natural object obtained from a magical or sacred place..  say  a pebble from the grounds of a Temple, a twig from a sacred site etc [Note: Do not willfully damage any part of said temple or sacred grounds for the purpose of obtaining such trinkets – for that’s what the item becomes no sooner had you obtained it in any such manner.  Whatever nature spirits or divine energy therein ..is not quite going to `come with you’ if you obtained the item by stealth or by damaging the source / venue.

So how then do you obtain the material?

Well – you obtain it- as I said – from the floor, from the grounds or nearby in an unobtrusive undamaging way..  (walk around nearby woods to find a pebble or twig!)  THEN take the item to the sacred place..to be cleansed and charged.  This way is much better..  In this manner, you are inviting the sacred and protective energies of that place to enter into the item and charge it for you :-)

Okay.. so you have your artefact or an item, or a ring or a pendant or a talisman (even one that is bought from a new age shop or a high street jewellery place.   as they make symbols and items…!)

Now  either visit a sacred place (woods, temple) or create sacred space in your room (using cleansing, then casting a circle and calling the quarters / 4 elements to be present and bear witness).

Familiarise your self with the word `Om’ (universally used by so many magical or esoteric people now all over the world..  though it originates from the Indian subcontinent, mainly from the Hindu religions).  There are different ways to draw `Om’ (depending on which language you use..  either Sanskrit or Tamil.  I have used the Tamil version in the photos here).

Practise making the sound `Om’ for several minutes.   Even the person who has `no concept of chanting’  can practise it for few minutes, and find that their breathing gets better, deeper, and the sound coming becomes clearer, crispy..).

Also familiarise your self with the actual symbol visually..   Look at it for several minutes…and try to copy it/ draw it on a piece of paper several times to get it right.   Remember that this is not just a random symbol.  It is a letter (well two) from a particular language. If someone who did not know the English Alphabet were to get a few strokes or curves incorrect, say for the letter R…it is not going to be an R.. :-) Get the symbol correct, for its powers to manifest better.

Om-charging your god-goddess talisman  or pendant (c) Mani Navasothy  2014

Now begin the magical task!

1. Hold the talisman/ item that is going to be charged – in the palm of your left hand. (left hand receives)

2. Clasp it with your right palm and close it.  (Right hand projects energy).

3. Close your eyes.

4. Chant `Om’ several times first (to surround your self with the divine energy it generates). Visualising the symbol `Om’ large and in front of you ..growing and glowing.

5. Now this next part is tricky.    Chant (it will be quite) `Om’ with an *In-breath*, while `breathing in’ the large `Om’ symbol that has been created in front of you (It’s all visualisation, with eyes closed). This energy now fills your lungs, body, head and mind..!

6. Now, with your out-breath, propel that `Om’ energy through your hands (from your body) into the Talisman clasped inside the closed palms. You can also propel the `Om’ energy into the talisman/ item  by projecting that energy out through your 3rd eye or Solar plexis chakra (or the heart chakra).    A variation is…to chant the name of a particular deity in the out-breath- whereby the in-drawn energy of Om is transformed into a particular Deity energy by the very calling of that deity name.

Repeat this whole process many times!

I have personally found this to be highly effective in charging talismans or pendants..

God & Goddess names have power in themselves..  whether they do exist or not no longer matters – because for thousands of years, millions of people have believed in them and thereby have created those very powerful god & goddess thought-forms. So when using such names, you are tapping deep into such collective energies (of the archetypes).

I shall share some more tools & techniques in these blogs soon.. (It is part of a `promise’ I have made with certain deities…to share such knowledge / experiences..  – well …call it a `Calling’ :-)

Bright Blessings

Druids United against Islamaphobia – a new positive facebook group

Druids United Against Islamaphobia

Druids United Against Islamaphobia https://www.facebook.com/groups/1578899712341370/

Dear all,  it is a dark day for pagans when a bunch of ill-informed people (we are not even sure if they are actually wise Druids) have set up a very damaging entity that portrays negativity…towards Islam.  (I won;t even bother mentioning their full name here).

Many hundreds of us open minded and tolerant interfaith networking Pagans, Wiccans & Druids have reported that `other’ group to facebook…but we’ve had messages saying facebook did not find it breaching their policies of hate speech.

No wise Druid would ever say or support such a thing…so any vexative, shit-stirring people could have set up such a negatve group..   which would only give a bad name to the genuine and wise Druids..   (The Druid Network actually is recognised as a charity and has worked to gain `religion’ status in UK!  Link below).

A bunch of Druids and pagans have now set up their own Positive group..   which is called `Druids United against Islamaphobia’   – So I ask you who is open minded, wise and sympathetic – in the interest of unity & diversity, interfaith working and a peaceful future – to join this NEW GOOD Group…and show your support.

Bright Blessings

-Mani Navasothy

Witchfest International – Wiccan Convention in London (15th November 2014)

Witchfest is an annual Gathering/ Indoor Festive event/ convention (in it’s 11th year). It is currently the largest Witchcraft Event held in the World, and takes place in Croydon, (South London) on the Saturday 15th November 2014. These events are organised by `Children of Artemis’. I started attending these from about 10 years ago – having been going to monthly pub moots and conventions- either as a  Speaker/ Workshop facilitator, or just as an ordinary paying attendee.  Few years ago, I co-manned a stall for `Pagan Federation London’  at the Witchfest.

Gossipers & Nay-sayers have in the past branded Witchfest events as `jumping in on the witchy bandwagons of popular TV shows such as Charmed & Buffy the Vampire Slayer of the 90’s. Others have smirked at it as just being full of teen wannabe-witches coming in their crushed velvet fancy dresses.

However, a look at any (past and present) scheduling will show – Witchfest hosts some very impressive talks and workshops by many of the leading and experienced Magicians, Ritualists, Authors..and Wiccan Craft Elders!!  Not only that, it also puts on a jolly good show of pagan and esoteric bands/ music groups (often in 2 different stages). And then there is the big New age/ Occult/ Esoteric market – shops and stalls – selling everything from magic wands, crystals, cloths, art works and more. The whole of Fairfield Hall (big place) in Croydon is booked for this annual Witchy extravaganza – and if you do down to Croydon town on that day, you are bound to see lots of Witchy-looking people out and about :-)    There’s also usually the protesting Christian groups (handful) outside the Hall – presumably fearing for all the witchy souls and wanting too rescue us all.

It’s always been a great festive event, and I shall be going with my friends..:-)

So here’s a quick look at what’s going on and some details

Fundraising: Headstone for Eleanor Ray Bone – Matriarch of European Wicca

Fundraising initiative

Dear all, this matter has come to my attention.

We’ve all heard of Doreen Valiente – mother of Modern Witchcraft. Well, this one is about Eleanor Ray Bone – Matriarch of European Wicca, because most Gardnerian initiates in Europe trace their roots to Ray Bone’s coven.

Eleanor Ray Bone

Eleanor Ray Bone – Matriarch of European Wicca

 

“With Witchcraft, your happiness is completely in your hands…”  says Eleanor in one of the Documentaries.

This is the lady who hurried off to rescue the grave of Gerald Gardner and raised funds to have his grave moved to a safer place and a proper headstone (in Tunis).

And now the community would like to do the same for Eleanor.

Do visit the new website, and if able to, make a small or large donation towards this cause.

 

I do have a particular interest in this matter, as I of the same Wiccan Lineage of this lady!

 

Please visit this site and make your donations (by paypal or credit cards)

–> Eleanor Bone site  <–

The fundraising is managed by highly respected  Wiccan Elders and Scholars such as  Dr Vivianne Crowley, Chris Crowley, Professor Ronald Hutton, Dr Melisa Harrington,  Rufus Harrington,  Philip Heseltonand of course Sophia Boann who initiated this fundraising venture.  (I know 5 of these personally).

Bright Blessings.

Staring today: Nova Stellar Wicca Meet-up Group in London

Happy to announce  – a fellow Wiccan friend and Craft sister of mine is organising a special monthly Wiccan meetup event. here are the details..

Nova Stellar Wicca Meet-up Group (London)

Nova Stellar Wicca Meet-up Group (London)

Nova Stellar Wicca Meetup Group (london)

The aim of the Group is to provide an opportunity for genuine seekers to find out more about Wicca, meeting up with Initiates from a number of different covens based in London.

The meet-up will allow individuals to ask questions about the Wiccan tradition, inform expectations and help seekers ascertain if this is an appropriate path for them. It will help consolidate ideas and beliefs and (hopefully!) encourage further development in this beautiful Pagan Tradition.

We welcome those who have a genuine interest in Initiatory Wicca, who may wish to consider joining a formal group/coven in the future. If you have been working on a solitary basis and having trouble meeting established groups in the London area, this could be the Group for you!

If you wish to attend, please confirm on Facebook .  so we can gauge numbers. The Castle is opposite Farringdon Tube Station which links to the Northern Line, making it reasonably easy to travel to from all other major tube lines. We hope to reserve an area in the upstairs Lounge Bar.

The Group will meet on the second Tuesday of each month in the future.

First meeting is on the Full Moon!   Tuesday 9th Sept 2014

Time:  18:30–22:00

Venue: The Castle  (Pub),  Farringdon, 34-35 Cowcross Street,, EC1M 6DB London, United Kingdom

And don’t forget the monthly `Woodland Wicca Circle’ that I facilitate monthly ..  is starting up after summer breaks…soon.
