Samhain: Season of the Witch
Nov, Dec, Jan
Yule / Winter Solstice
Merry Meet! Welcome to the Silver Chalice Wiccan 'Zine!
This issue I'd like to offer you a few Samhain goodies open access to 2 pages (plus the collection of seasonal chants) from the first Samhain lesson in A Year & A Day: 53 Weeks to Becoming a Wiccan.
Before we get to that, though, I'd like to share a bit of what's going on for me, and see if you might wish to help me out.
If you've been following my work for a while, you've seen that over the last few years, it has been decreasing. Fewer new articles in the 'Zine and the website, less outreach on Facebook and Twitter... I even had to stop answering emails from non-students (and am struggling to keep up with those from students).
sadly, at the point where I can hardly manage any work at all, and it's still declining.
The reason for this reluctant reduction in my Service to you, the Wiccan community, and the Goddess as you may already know is that I've been dealing with increasingly severe illness for a few years.
Well, I'm now at a rather critical state where I have to take drastic action to heal, or (at the risk of being melodramatic) else. I'm still on a downward slide without much further to go, and this new treatment seems to be my best hope for turning things around.
It's very expensive! I mean, as probably everyone who's had to treat a serious long-term illness knows, it's very expensive all the way along, but so far I've been able to manage. This new term of treatment, though, costs a lot more.
I don't know if you'd like to help, or even if you can, but at the urging of my healing coach, I'm asking
my community for help. If you could
contribute something to help me afford this treatment and, I sincerely hope, regain my health, I would appreciate it so much!
Then I'd be able to get back to my Mission!
There's so much more I have to offer you! There's so much more I can do for Wicca and the Earth! I dearly want the opportunity to share it.
So, if you...
Would like this 'Zine, website, Wicca School, and/or social media to continue
Have found any of these to be a useful or uplifting resource for you
Want more guidance in how to experience the highest/deepest levels of spiritual awakening through Wicca
Want Wicca Spirituality to continue to change peoples' opinion of Wicca
Would like to help me midwife the Goddess back into the world ...
Please consider sharing some energy in the form of funds to be able to afford this treatment.
I'm not very good at asking for help, and Goddess knows I'm even worse at receiving it. But here goes...
If you can help even a little (or even a lot ), please visit my donations page. Just click the donate button and you can make any contribution of your choosing.
I haven't made a specific page/button for this purpose (just haven't been able to make that happen), so this is the energy-exchange page, but we'll know what this is for.
I promise that everything received will be used for just this sole purpose.
If you can help financially, thank you so much!!!
Not only does it mean a lot to me to be able to
regain function and life expectancy, but all the support and good wishes and healing energy that people send me is like a spring rain on parched soil! The joy and gratitude overflow my heart and my eyes, that people care.
Okay, enough about me! Let's get on with our little 'Zine...
Meanwhile, may you have a very Happy Samhain!!
With Bright Blessings,
Sneak Peek into Samhain
As promised, below are links to the first pages of the Samhain lesson from A Year & A Day: 53 Weeks to Becoming a Wiccan. Normally these are available only to students of the Wicca School. I want to make them a gift just to you as a valued subscriber to the Silver Chalice Wiccan 'Zine.
So to keep it just between us, these pages will be available only temporarily.
Access to these pages will expire on November 10, 2017 ... so please check them out
This should give you time to read them even if you opened this issue a little late.
I hope you enjoy them!
Also, here's a chant you can do at any time, really, and especially potent in the Samhain season. The page linked below gives you the chant as well as how to use it...
"In June 2009 I did the major spell of my lifetime -- I spent twenty years learning and developing my craft so that I could make it.
"I imagined and created magick for a grid of heart connection, a light network, growing around the world between all the people of kindness and action. My spell was to awaken humanity -- seemingly a daunting and impossible task -- to its common values of kindness and love.
"I invite you to join in this magickal work. The time is now, and you are needed.
"Fortunately, it’s easy!
"I've created a magick spell that you can sing.
"The Ancestors Chant is a magick spell in song format. (You can download this magic song.)
"Samhain is the time when we can communicate with our ancestors and loved ones who've passed to the Spirit World.
"What does it do? It heals and blesses your ancestors (which is why it's so good for Samhain).
"But it also does a whole lot more..."
