Flidais, Celtic Earth Goddess, Lady of the Forest and Much More by Judith Shaw

Something I thought readers would like.

gugg jude72This year the fall equinox occurs on September 22.  In the Pagan calendar it is a time for giving thanks called Mabon.  Mabon celebrates the end of the harvest season and is a time to honor our wild nature and nature spirits. It is a day of perfect balance when the hours of daylight and darkness are equal. Mabon ushers in our journey into the dark night of winter.

Flidais (pronounced flee-ish) is a complex Celtic Goddess with many differing stories and aspects.  She represents both our domestic and our wild natures and is an appropriate Goddess to call on on this day of balance.  She first appears in the ancient mythological cycles as an Earth Mother. She was the  mother of the Irish cultivator heroes, Arden, and Bé Téite and the “she-farmers” Bé Chuille and  Dinand.   From Her they gained the power to cultivate and work the earth for…

The God “Dies” and Is “Reborn”

Yesterday I talked about the rebirth of the god. In Paganism, pagans believe he dies along with summer and is dead when winter is here and rises again in Imbogc when light returns to the earth.

For the Hëatheru, however when the God dies, he does not die nor is he reborn from a womb. There are two traditions of this method. He hides so that the Oak God can do his thing, and run about and say he killed the solar God (The pagan version is the oak king and holly king fight) and his time is on the land. Meanwhile our solar God is hanging out in his fortress and his forest gathering strength to face the Oak God and call him out on Yule. In this tradition even many eons before the birth of even ancient paganism or paigos, the faerie or norns play apart in the Solar God’s healing and warrior training. His name is Nü. (New which means young). He was not so much a being of the sun as a being of light, kind of like Apollo.

The second tradition is that the Solar God goes off to warrior training with the norns and demons of the world so he can learn how to fight when the final battle happens. He then comes “home” to the Goddess and she feeds him blood from her veins. He is “reborn”. Early forms of paiga believe that we can not sway with the season or the weather. It became an ancient story, and so our Goddess became one with the God, and they had a courtship. It lasted for a long time, but a fleeting moment in eternity.  The Goddess being from one tribe, and the God from another. They never attempted to marry as they were married in spirit with one another and had a spirit marriage with one another. They never had children because we were not trying to populate the world with children. That is the other races creation.

Nü and Gráinë (Grace almost in some format, said as Gry-ase) met one day while in an apple orchard, he was walking with a male friend and she was on her horse riding. Nü took a liking to Gráinë and wanted to be her friend, he didn’t ask to date her or marry because these were not popular things to do at the time. The people had eternity. Such simple times. Together as friends their names are literally New Grace. Or New Presence.

The idea that a God is reborn every yr to the same Goddess, is disgusting to heatheru, because we do not approve of giving birth. It is considered a racial slur to be beget with child to our race. Just think, she gives birth to him, every year so every eight months or so she gets pregnant, again. This does not make any sense. If he is reborn on Ostara, then she got pregnant with him again on ? Let’s do the math here:

  1. He is born on Ostara in the pagan Calendar.
  2. Beltane
  3. Midsummer
  4. Lammas
  5. Mabon
  6. Samhain
  7. Yule
  8. Imbolgc
  9. Another Ostara.

Most women have to take at least three to five months again in order to conceive. Am I the only one who sees this? Maybe she gives birth to one son. Maybe people in the towns and things repeat that she had a son every year. So it seems she has many children. I fail to believe that she had children magickally because there would be no need for them to be in her womb. She would just place them here. It is supposed to be a whole thing about the birth process and the family and the god and his woman I know. Yuck. I had a child too, I know, and it is Yuck.

There is no time, plus the fact that during the time of this type of paganism we did not have all the pagan or wiccan tradition we do today. Say she gets pregnant with him again at Mabon, she only has 4 months of pregnancy with her child. But the old god dies at Samhain so really she only has three. I know that paganism is about light and warmth returning to the earth, but their God mythos is wacked. I want modern wiccan and pagans to look at her birth record here. They will have to say I am right.

I am not saying, print the truth – and let us have our mythos back. This is not what this is about. Keep your kooky mythos about your God and Goddess.

Wicca and Paganism as it is today meant well to sully the witsku tradition with reborn of the God by the vein. Heatheru tradition is a vampiric conditional tradition, we drink, there is communion and we rise anew. It is considered taboo to drink life force in wicca.

Yet Dark Pagans abound!

Rights as Pagans, wiccans, magickal…

Rights as Pagans, wiccans, magickal workers
I know many people that would right now argue with me that I don’t have the right to work my own spells, write my own solo book of shadows and or re-create or create my own magickal pathway. I have been a pagan for over 15+ years. I say otherwise.

In the Degree tradition of paganism and witchcraft, first year witches will be encouraged to:

1.Write their own spells
2. Create and add periodically to their own Book of Shadows
3. Attend their own circles for sabbat and esbats.

In the Second year they can:

1. Create their own covens.

2. Create a social group based on their works.

3. Create their own magickal tradition if they so choose.

In their third year they can:

1. Initiate coven leaders within their starting tradition

2. Initiate coven members into their own magickal traditions

3. Lead coven members to create their own spells and BoS’s

4. Become a third generation witch within their home trad and circle

5. Lead passing on rituals with other elders of their home circle

6. Lead and work with other elders at wiccaning children (wiccan baptism) and so on.

If I were a level degree pagan, (I’d be bored and no offense for those whom are, but at 15+ years I’d be up there with the pre Crones and that is exactly where I am, degree or no degree. It is just a piece of paper and with spiritual experience, this is what a pagan needs, not a piece of paper!)

Therefore I create my own groups, and I am hoping to re-create Heatheru and witsku traditions. Not all Heathen pagans want to swill whisky in a tankard and act like wild beasts or look like one. Some of us want to be Beautiful in a non human way and to own our beast-y natures in a much more calm and peaceful way. No one is going to respect your tradition if you carry on in violence. Or “I can because I hate christians!” Well, why really? “Because their God is a bitch to follow, it says this and this to do!” No, it does not. If you had wisdom, you would know the bible was written by men, NOT BY GOD. You have knowledge don’t you? Maybe the Gods came and went and later on someone whom witnessed it, decided they’d write from their POV and then the bible was created out of thin air. Can’t you take it all with a grain of salt rather than getting pissed off for no reason, thus proving that some pagans (when really if you are pagan, you respect life more than this angry soul is doing!) really aren’t cool people. Why all this anger?

Most pagan tradition, be they heathen, they be angry. This anger is not their anger. This anger belongs to ways they were raised, shit they went through so they become a heathen tradition because their rebels against their raising and their parents and life. ARRGHHH! (wild stampede through the blog post) Heatheru is a calmer path towards acceptance of the spirit we are. For in heatheru is popular for some to feral, even in modern times. By Feral, I mean they may not bathe, comb their hair, or be around people all that much. It depends on the trust, mindset and being in question, eventually all heatheru will bathe, comb the hair, shave even and associate with people.

It also depends on brain chemicals, they need more serotonin and b complex and zinc and manganese. Because if you are drawn to a heatheru path you’re probably strigoi or latent vampiric. You’ll have nervous disorder, fibro, RA and generally be considered “weird, creepy, kooky and creature-y) and YOU will be and should be so proudly, without ego, or you’re also amazingly sensitive too at first. Before long we’re mean mugging thugs on their street and we’re the coldest emotionless people on the street. But we still love, and we still care. But if you hurt us, you’ll know it.

So yes, If I am calm and wise, and I can create my own spells, Books and Covens, I damn sure know I Can create my own cyber groups and websites and traditions.

Quit being so judgmental. There is no overall Pagan Community Leader or Elder that I need to go through for permission, so grow the hell up. Come on, Small wooden boy!

Personality Reveals (Shamanic)

In the member profile, as the last question, you have to select what you sometimes resonate with. There is a purpose to this I want people to be awar of their energy and what they choose and how it reflects on them or to them and them with others and so on. No answer is wrong.

I sometimes Identity with *Required
Squrriels Sharks Badgers Wolves Dogs Cats Elephants Big Cats Statue

These are my answers, but I can’t unclick them as they’ve been copied and pasted.

1. Squrriels: Young at heart, playful, likes to have fun, maybe a little mischief. People may see you as too goofy, rather random, but at the same time fun to be about, may want to tone down the antics a bit. Otherwise you take care of yourself well regardless alone or in a small group. May want to watch hoarding objects tho.

2. Sharks: Fierce and protective of what is your own. Master of your domain. May come across as too cold and may send others packing, and may need to tone it down to be more friendly.

3. Badgers: Not friendly. Too busy to do much with others, you are just about yourself. Not actually anti social, but not into being social much either. Take your time, you’ll be there when you get there.

4. Wolves: Most associate wolves with loyalty and pack brothers or sisters. Here wolves mean that we are a little lost on our path and we want to find ourselves. We want to go in the right direction.

5. Dogs: Most associate dogs with loyalty and man’s best friend. Here we see them in a different way – you are stuck in a rut and need to change. You just go along with whatever it is you think will be acceptable, do things half arse and just puddle through the flow.

6. Cats: (as in house cats) Cats are spiritual, but into doing their own thing. Here cats take on a different meaning – they do their own thing but it harms them. You may want to watch the drugs or the alcohol content. No one likes an addict and their behavior is destructive.

7. Big Cats: (Tigers, Lions, etc) Big cats are different than house cats. Their still off on their own though and like their solitude. They may get wicked every now and again but it is rare. No one sees their deviant nature, they keep it behind closed doors usually.

8. Statue: If you chose statue then the changes you’ve gone through has made you very mature, noble, clean, happy somewhat even tho you still have depressive states now and again you know how to control them. Statue people are watchful, careful, but loyal and true to those they call family or friends. Never offend a statue person, because you won’t see them again. They’ll be gone not wasting their time on people like yourself. They are still a little sensitive, but that is what keeps them “safe”. Judge well yet ye not be judged. Statue view other statues as compliant citizens of living or of noble life, yet keep a distance because they know what it is like.

 

If you feel like yur answer wasn’t valid or you feel like another animal or object feel free to contact me via inbox and I will be happy to help you figure yourself out. 🙂 This personality question is about helping vampires and others feel more acceptable to themselves and others they associate with.

The Samael and Lilith logo used by most satanists is actually a Nephilim symbol used in the 15th century BCE by the Samoans. Roughly 355,000 years ago, the symbol means to be without and then filled up (SA MA EL) AND To plant and then Harvest (LIL ITH). It is a farming symbol to mean we were once without and now we have and we Harvest. The symbol of the goat represents man’s hungry nature, he has not then he has when he learns to cultivate for himself. It’s Gorean as well as Greek and Chaldean as well. It’s considered a servant symbol and is not actually beneficial to wear to represent Satanic or Satanist faiths. Other than man has not then cultivates for himself, and then he also destroys himself if he has no will to control his animalistic side or natures. Believers of this faith may call these people A’torians. A form of dark servant philospher. Dark Theologists. They lived on Crete.

Many people on facebook, twitter…

Many people on facebook, twitter are about the petition craze. Even a well written petition that gets people all fired up needs a second voice, so be prepared for contacting some state representatives to have your petition be heard, or worse yet even read.
You can google state reps on the web via google or any search engine, you can also find them on social media and twitter.
Be direct when writing a rep or congressman or woman, don’t say hey when you have a minute can you look over this petition or cause? Tell them it matters to their state, city or country.
They will most likely read it at that point.
Don’t point blame with your petition. List what is wrong, what should be done, regardless of signatures or not, and ask others to look at your petition as well, Librarians, Pastors, school teachers, principals. Having backing from leading officials in the area of your petition works well too.
Newsletter out reach is important! So build a newsletter around your cause or petition.
Use wordpress blogs to reach even more audience, it has great seo, due to RSS feeds and #tags.

Pagans being Fearful of Symbols

I know many a page or pagan on facebook who posts things like: “Your cross inspires more fear than my Pentacle”.

q. Why are you trying to make paganism seem safe and pleasant to people that don’t understand your ways or you?
q. Why are you trying to explain it so it’s ok to you as well?

If you wear Black, wear a pentacle or pentagram, septagram, hexagram aka the elven star, or you dye your hair multi colors and look freaky as hell to show “your open mindedness” or the chaote star or what not — yet condemn others beliefs, this does not make you open minded. It makes you as much a fearful biggot as the Christian that is condemning you.

Pentacles, Pentagrams, Baphomets and Crosses, all used to be Christianized just as much as they are pagan or satanist now. The Templars know this well. Not just the Knights Templar which are actually not truly Templar, or assassin creed related lol but are more Authurian than anything else and are Doctrine Christian nomads. Templar Templar is Templar Templati or Templus/i are Heathen and answer to no one, no God, No deity save themselves. They were made to think and create for themselves, and would be the truth AC if pressed about it. AC did not come from men, AC came from one woman who was wronged by these men.

If you are fearful of a symbol, you are not understanding that it has no bearing upon you, is not waved by some God at you so you can be cursed. Christian or Pagan, their Cross represents Equality. I know, I wear one. Equality for all. Their pentacle circle or non, means they are safe in the arms of God, or God power regardless of whom the name belongs to, Odin or Zeus or Jehovah or other name. It is a theologic symbol. No need to fear anyone, anything, anywhere, and for sake of argument, shut up. Stirring up emotions over theologic symbols is mind numbingly stupid, wrong, and if this is what makes you scared, you can not be helped by those symbols or any of the spirituality you claim.
