"I honor the place within you where the entire Universe resides; I honor the place within you of love, of light, of truth, of peace; I honor the place within you, where, when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us."
I have a relationship not a religion. My deity does not demand my submission instead delights in my companionship. I do not fall to the ground in worship but instead walk beside her. I bring offerings of incense and flowers, and offer energy to guide my travels. I do not call upon her to win a football game or for help with my car. She's much too busy to spend time doing the mundane workings of this world of which I am much more suited. I do not require your approval or ask your acceptance of my beliefs, I merely ask you that you leave me to my own without the need to ridicule. You obey your God and I'll work in harmony with mine. Blessed Be
The Evil Eye
is a said to be a look that causes bad luck or injury to the person who receives
it. Cultures all over the world have
this belief but the strongest belief comes from the Middle East, Asia, Africa
Europe and the Mediterranean. However,
today belief in the evil eye is global. Even
the island of Hawaii has it, but they call it the stink eye.
Many cultures have specific ways to ward off, or escape the
evil eye ranging from handing up a blue stone, whispering prayers or drinking
wine. A common image for protection
again the evil eye is below.
One of my favorite wards against the evil eye is close to
another of my passions. Heavy Metal
Music. Ronnie James Dio used a symbol called
“Devil Horns” in
his stage performances.
This symbol was taken from the “Malocchio”;
a hand gesture used by his grandmother to protect her from the evil eye.
Personally, I believe that what you send out comes back to
you, so those that send out things that are harmful to others should pay close
attention. I was recently contacted by
someone who wanted “justice” for someone cheating on them. I offered a gentle reminder that justice and
revenge are two very separate things.
To protect myself I have a constant mirroring spell that I
refresh around my property as well as keeping lots of sage on hand. I've also been asked to create house blessing
cords, which hang on door knobs and protection masks to hang on entry ways.
