  11. 11. Star Goddess Litany <ul><li>“ Hear the words of the Star Goddess; she in the dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven and whose body encircles the universe. </li></ul><ul><li>I who am the beauty of the green earth, and the white Moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the desire of the heart of man, call unto thy soul. Arise and come unto me. </li></ul><ul><li>For I am the soul of nature, who gives life to the universe. From me all things proceed, and unto me all things must return; and before my face, Beloved of Gods and of men, let thine innermost divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the infinite. </li></ul><ul><li>Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth; for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. And therefore, let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honour and humility, mirth and reverence within you. </li></ul><ul><li>And thou who thinkest to seek for me, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not unless thou knowest the mystery; that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.For behold, I have been with thee from the beginning; and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.” </li></ul>
  12. 12. I am a Pagan <ul><li>  I am a part of the whole of Nature. </li></ul><ul><li>The rocks, the animals, the plants, the elements are my relatives. </li></ul><ul><li>Other humans are my sisters and brothers, whatever their races, colours, ages, nationalities, creeds, or sexual preferences. </li></ul><ul><li>The earth is my Mother and the sky is my Father. The sun and moon are my Grandparents, and the stars my ancestors. </li></ul><ul><li>I am part of this large family of Nature, not the master of it. </li></ul><ul><li>I have my own special part to play and I seek to play that part to the best of my ability. </li></ul><ul><li>I seek to live in harmony with others in the family of Nature, treating others with respect, not abuse... </li></ul><ul><li> I am a Pagan </li></ul><ul><li>I pay attention to the seasons within myself - of beginnings, growth, fruition, harvest, endings, rest, and beginnings again. </li></ul><ul><li>Life is a Circle with many cycles... </li></ul><ul><li>I am a Pagan I acknowledge that the Divine is everywhere in the energy of life. </li></ul><ul><li>I am Animistic. I sense the life force in the oak tree on the hill, in the herbs in the garden, in the birds singing at my window, in the boulders on the hill, in myself, and yes, even in &quot;things&quot; such as my car and computer. </li></ul><ul><li>I understand that everything has its physical and non-physical aspects. The physical and spiritual are deeply intertwined, not separate, and one is not better than the other. </li></ul>
  13. 13. I am a Pagan 2 <ul><li>  I am a Pagan My worship is one of communion, not grovelling. I share my views with others when I sense it is right, but I do not proselytise - there are many ways, not one way, of spiritual growth. </li></ul><ul><li>My holy places are under the open sky … in the Stone Circle in the oak grove on the top of the mound ... on the Vision Rock on the high cliff … in the Garden in the fields … in the Sweat lodge by the stream … by the clear pool of the Sacred Spring … in the Rainbow Cave in the valley. </li></ul><ul><li>Yet my worship can be anywhere … my magick circle is portable. </li></ul><ul><li>I can call to the four quarters, to the earth and sky, and to the central spirit point wherever I may be. </li></ul><ul><li>I am a Pagan I journey to the Other world in my dreams, my meditations... I fly with my consciousness through time and space. </li></ul><ul><li>I return with insights. I go between the worlds for healing, growth, and transformation. Psychic perception is a natural, not supernatural, part of my daily life. </li></ul><ul><li>I am a Pagan I attune myself to the four elements of Nature - Earth, Air, Fire, Water - and to the fifth element, Spirit, which is the force that connects all. </li></ul><ul><li>I see these elements as parts of my self - my physical body is my earth, my intellect my air, my will my fire, my emotions my water, and my inner self is my spirit. </li></ul><ul><li>I endeavour to keep myself healthy and in balance in all these parts of Self. </li></ul>
  14. 14. I am a Pagan 3 <ul><li>I am a Pagan I hear the cries of Mother Earth. I see the pollution of the air, the soil, and the waters. I see the games being played by nations with the fire of nuclear weapons. I see spiritual pollution, too - selfishness, hatred, greed for money and power, despair. I sense these things, but I sense, too, a cleansing, healing energy manifesting on the planet at this time. I know that I can help bring the planet into greater balance by seeking balance in my own life. I know that my attitudes and my way of living can make a difference. I endeavour to be a channel for healing and balance. </li></ul>

  57. 57. How To Make Rosary For Moon Goddess and Druid/God Prayers <ul><li>It is best to string your own beads. You will need: </li></ul><ul><li>13 white 8mm beads for the Maiden 13 red 8mm beads for the Mother 13 black mm beads for the Crone 1 silver 10mm bead representing the Full Moon 52 silver spacer beads (class &quot;E&quot; 6/0) representing the Moonlight. Nylon thread: white or ecru, or colour of choice </li></ul><ul><li>You may begin and end stringing anywhere in the loop, but the tie-off is less visible in the midst of the black beads. </li></ul><ul><li>The silver Moon bead is separated from the White Maiden beads by four (4) silver spacer beads. Each white Maiden bead is followed by one silver spacer bead, but the thirteenth bead is followed by four (4) spacer beads. </li></ul><ul><li>Then come the red Mother beads, each followed by one silver spacer, but the 13th bead is followed by four (4) spacers. </li></ul><ul><li>Then come the black Crone beads, each followed by one silver bead, but the 13th is followed by four (4) spacers. And so we are back at the silver Moon bead. In other words, beads of the same colour are separated by one spacer. The three sets of beads and the larger Moon bead are separated by four spacers. Thirteen (13) beads are used in each set to signify the thirteen months of the lunar year. The silver spacers represent moonlight issuing from the Full Moon bead throughout the life cycle of Maiden, Mother, Crone. </li></ul><ul><li>Prayers are said on each bead, while meditating on the mysteries of the Triple Goddess, and the experience of the human life cycle. Men may wish to make a devotion to the Horned God, and honour the life cycle of Youth, Father, and Sage. </li></ul>

And therefore, let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honour and humility, mirth and reverence within you. </li></ul><ul><li>And thou who thinkest to seek for me, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not unless thou knowest the mystery; that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.For behold, I have been with thee from the beginning; and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.” </li></ul><ul><li>The First Mystery </li></ul><ul><li>You are now at the point of the first mystery of the angels-- Universal love . </li></ul><ul><li>Say the Prayer of the God on the fifth bead before the center medal: </li></ul><ul><li>“ As the rod is to the God, so the chalice is to the Goddess </li></ul><ul><li>And together they are one”. </li></ul>

(Now say the God prayer and Gabriel's prayer as before) </li></ul><ul><li>The Fifth Mystery </li></ul><ul><li>This is the Gift of wisdom and power to the hidden children of the Goddess.

I thought it would be interesting to make up a set of Pagan Prayer Beads.   </li></ul><ul><li>These beads work wonderfully for raising and storing energy, prayer, meditation and focusing.   </li></ul><ul><li>To make one you need a length of cord suitable for the length you desire; </li></ul><ul><li>54 'filler' beads; </li></ul><ul><li>5 larger beads, </li></ul><ul><li>a charm to rest where the strands meet and a charm to hang on the end.   </li></ul><ul><li>String 10 beads, I used black (you can use smaller beads, chain or knots if you want something between them or to add more length). </li></ul><ul><li>2. Add one of the larger beads. I used these beads to represent the elements (red, blue, white, green and silver) but you can represent the stages of life, the five fold god or goddess etc...   </li></ul><ul><li>3. Add 10 more beads and a larger one; 10 beads and a larger one; 10 more beads and a larger one; 10 more beads.   </li></ul><ul><li>4. Take the two loose ends and tie them to the charm you have chosen to hang in the center. This is where in Catholic rosaries the picture of Mary or another saint is. </li></ul><ul><li>5.  Add one bead, the last of the larger beads (I put the silver spirit bead here) then the last three small beads.   </li></ul><ul><li>Step six- Finish by adding the charm you want to hang at the end. I used a pentacle.  You can make up or use any prayers for the beads. </li></ul><ul><li>Traditionally the same prayer is said on the 54 small beads; a second on the five larger beads and two other ones on the charms  I use the following interpretations of the beautiful Hail Mary prayer on mine. </li></ul><ul><li>Small Beads </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hail Goddess, full of grace; the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among creation And blessed is thy fruit of the womb- the God. Holy Goddess, Mother of all Grant us thy love now And throughout all our lives, So Mote It Be”.    </li></ul><ul><li>Elemental Beads </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hail Guardian, powers of (earth, air, fire, water, ether); all life is with thee. Blessed is thy role in creation And blessed is the (earth, air, fire, water, spirit) within me. Blessed Guardians, Keeper of (earth, air, fire, water, ether) Grant us thy wisdom now And throughout all our lives, So Mote It Be”.   </li></ul><ul><li>Larger Beads   </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hail Father, full of strength; the Lady is with thee.

  74. 74. Simple Version (Repeat for each element) “ I cleanse and consecrate thee in the names of the Goddess and God. May their blessings reside within thee.” Draw 4 circles over the element representation and tap 4 times.
  75. 75. Elaborate Begin to lower your finger (or the Anthame) into the water. As they touch, say: “ And together, they are One”. At this point, envision the water exploding with Divine energy. Make this energy coloured, if you like. Remove your finger (or the Anthame). Imagine that the altar is a giant cauldron. You have cleansed and blessed each element on the altar. Now, you are going to mix them together - meld them, if you will - into a vortex of positive, Divine energy. Beginning in the North in a clockwise, spiral motion, stir your hand over the altar five times, imagining the energies mixing together. Tap the hilt of the Anthame (or your fingers) soundly five times (one for each element, plus one for Spirit) at the right, lower corner (the corner closest to you right hand if you are right-handed, the corner closest to your left hand if you are left-handed) to seal the power of the altar. The devotion is done. Ground and center. “ Creature of ___________ (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) I cleanse and consecrate thee by the ancient energies of the ___________ (North, East, South, West) I remove all negativity in in the world and the phantasm May the blessings of the ancient ones upon you now So Mote it Be!” Hold the bowl of water in your hands and raise it before you, silently, in communion with the Gods. Move the water bowl to the center of the altar (on top of your altar pentacle if you have one). Place three pinches of salt in the water. Stir thrice with your finger (or your Anthame). Then say: “ As the rod is to the God, so the chalice is to the Goddess”.
  76. 76. Another Version Then Mix Water and Earth once done saying; “ Purity, purity, of Earth and Water, Blessed Be! “ And then for Fire and Air, Once done, saying; “ Purity, purity, of Fire and Air, Blessed Be! “ To be said whilst moving widdershins (Counter clock, Banish) with your wand (Will) over the element representation. Imagine a white light cleansing all impurities in the object. “ Creature of ___________ (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) Untainted and Pure Be fit to dwell within this circle” Then reverse and move in Deosil (Clockwise) circles imaging the colourful light of the element representation being infused into it. “ Spirit of ________________ (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) Accept this place Dwell within this Sacred Space”
