farewell blessing

Draconic Witchcraft: Circle Casting

  1. Stand in the middle of where you will draw your circle.
  2. Visualise your crown chakra opening to receive divine light.
  3. Open your arms, facing out; visualise the light growing stronger and forming into a shield of protection.
  4. Now raise one hand to either mentally mark the edges of your circle on the floor, or use chalk/protective powder to mark the circle. Spin around clockwise while drawing.
  5. Place white candles at each compass point on the circle..
  6. Stand facing East, in the centre of the circle. Relax and breathe until you feel calm, centred, and present. Light the candle and then chant: “To the East, I call upon the Guardians of the elements of Air and the Great Yellow Dragon to join me now and bless this circle. Hail and Welcome!
  7. Stand facing South. Light the candle and then chant: “To the South, I call upon the Guardians of the elements of Fire and the Great Red Dragon to join me now and bless this circle. Hail and Welcome!
  8. Stand facing West. Light the candle and then chant: “To the West, I call upon the Guardians of the elements of Water and the Great Blue Dragon to join me now and bless this circle. Hail and Welcome!
  9. Stand facing North. Light the candle and then chant: “To the North, I call upon the Guardians of the elements of Earth and the Great Green Dragon to join me now and bless this circle. Hail and Welcome!
  10. Raise your hands and palms upwards, and look up while chanting: “God and Goddess, Spirit Guides, please be present with me during this ritual. Bless this circle and keep me protected. No unwanted entities are welcome here. Only pure, divine beings are invited into this space. The circle is cast. So mote it be.
  11. Now you can sit or stand within your circle, and perform your spell.
  12. To close your circle, prepare to spin anticlockwise.
  13. Stand facing North. With your palms outstretched, chant: “To the North, I thank the Guardians of the element of Earth and the Great Green Dragon. Hail thee and farewell!
  14. Stand facing West. With your palms outstretched, chant: “To the West, I thank the Guardians of the element of Water and the Great Blue Dragon. Hail thee and farewell!
  15. Stand facing South. With your palms outstretched, chant: “To the South, I thank the Guardians of the element of Fire and the Great Red Dragon. Hail thee and farewell!
  16. Stand facing East. With your palms outstretched, chant: “To the East, I thank the Guardians of the element of Air and the Great Yellow Dragon. Hail thee and farewell!
  17. Stand in the middle with palms facing the sky and look upwards, chanting: “The circle is open, but never broken. I thank thee all for being present and blessing this ritual. May we meet again. Farewell, blessed be, and so it is.”
  18. Either let the candles burn down, or blow them out. Release your shield.

an end to an era, the sweetest of goodbyes.

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I’ll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care…
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul…
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that’s what I’ll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.

Circle Casting

this post is for the lovely witchybun  who asked me about how i cast my circles. this is just how i usually cast my more important circles. 

OPENING A CIRCLE

First clear the area you plan to place you circle, and remove any unnecessary clutter while making sure that you have everything that you will need. (having to cut the circle because you forgot something important always sucks)  have all four quarters located before you begin (north, east, south and west) i usually work with candles that represent each of the quarters. if you are also using quarter candles place them in their proper directions now 

Then ground and center yourself it helps to focus on whatever work you will be doing. i find that it helps to shut out distractions so that i can give all my attention to the magickal work ahead.

He is beautiful, in ways you cant comprehend yet. His ruffled hair and baggy clothes make him soft around his edges, his pouted lips beg to be kissed a thousand times in love and blessing, in farewells and hellos. His hands were always there to hold yours from the very first time they bumped together and suddenly your fingers were intertwined and it felt so right you wanted to be in that moment forever, just feeling his palm pressed against yours. He is your love, and you will stare at him like he is a beautiful sunset, you will gaze at him in awe and wonder, and in his eyes, if the love is real, you will see him staring back with the same giddy look you know is on your face.

“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!”

Christian what movie inspired u to create **a secret room full of raincoats**

Oi!! It was a movie called Beach Party, which is one of my favorite movies of all time probably. Generally I do not like the beach, especially the sunny california type, however 1960’s beach culture was incredibly cool and good. There is alot of good mu sic in the film as well and all of the car driving scenes look rly unreal & whimsical. The dialogue is amazing too, just the tone and the slang ya know. The colors are very clean and soapy, yet washed out at the same time. Very life changing movie. Also… The Adventures Of Food Boy, is a masterpiece beautiful motion picture, and another big inspiration. Thx for asking farewell god bless

1. Jason Walker - Shouldn’t be Good in Goodbye

After the silence, after the last words. After the madness, after the slow shock. I would have missed your smile.

2. Boys Like Girls - Someone Like You

I couldn’t tell you the city I’m in. Who can save me now? Don’t know where I’m going to. I got nothin’ to lose. I’m fightin’ my demons. I’ve been lookin’ for someone like you. 

3. Skillet - The Older I Get

Do you believe that time heals all wounds? I’m just getting older. I’m not getting over you. I’m trying to. I can’t believe it still hurts like this.  

4. One OK Rock - Heartache

[translation:] Your smile from that day is turning into a memory. I miss you. You were the only one that touched my heart. The more I become unable to move on, it can’t be undone anymore. This moment is painful, it’s bitter. I want to quickly forget about you.

5.  Michael Schulte - You Said You’d Grow Up with Me

I’d like to say i’m okay but i’m not. You got your peace now, but what about me? i thought we had the time, had our lives, now you never get older, didn’t say goodbye. One last word, one last moment, to ask you why you left me here behind.

6. Nick Carter - Falling Down

I can’t sleep, I can’t dream ‘cause you’re scent’s still here. And this pain’s so insane. I’m still haunted by the stupid things I’ve said. And how do I let go? I know I should move on. But without you I don’t know where I belong. Trying to outrun all the memories but I keep falling down.

7. Good Charlotte -Emotionless

Hey Dad. It’s been a long hard road without you by my side. The scars run deep inside this tattooed body. There’s things I’ll take to my grave but I’m okay. Now I’m writing just to let you know I’m still alive.

8. N Dubz - Papa, Can You Hear Me?

Never knew how much I loved you till you was dead. It’s like you sacrificed your life. First they love you, second they hate you. They talked about you when they tried to play you. Behind your back, they were trying to betray you. Despite all the stress, you have to fight to the death.

9. Eminem - You’re Never Over

If proof could see me now, I know he’d be proud. I don’t think you understand how much you meant to me. The days are cold living without you. I’m growing older. You may be gone but you’re never over. I’ve just missed you and I won’t forget you. You gave me reason to fight.

10. Simple Plan - This Song Saved My Life

Because of you, my life has a purpose. Trapped in a world where everyone hates me.  I was bleeding, I stopped believing, could have died. You saved my life. You’ll never know what it means to me. 

11. Yellowcard - See Me Smiling

As I go on without you, my heartbeat won’t slow down. I need you back like I need to air to breathe this out. All I can do is keep you closer now. It’s 10 years now and I’m still learning to let go.  If only you could have a chance to see all the happiness you gave to me.

12. Ryan Cabrera - I Will Remember You

8 years later, time goes by fast. I will remember you and all of the things that we’ve gone through. There is so much I can say. The words get in the way. You were there when I needed a friend. I never told you how much that meant. Gotta thank you, thank you.

13. The Death March - The Price of Freedom (OST Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core)

You saved me through the rocky roads. You gave me half of your precious soul. What we needed is to find the way to be free. Even when we part, you will never be gone. Now I give you all my heart, take it all it’s just for you. I’ll never forget the love you gave us all. In my eternal memories, I wanna see your smile.

14. Charlie Puth - See You Again (OST Fast and Furious 7)

It’s been a long day without you. Why’d you have to leave me when I needed you the most? ‘Cause I don’t really know how to tell you without feeling much worse. I know you’re in a better place but it’s always gonna hurt. So let the light guide your way, Hold every memory as you go.

15. Billy Boyd - The Last Goodbye (OST The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies)

On the wind I heard a sigh, as the snowflakes cover my fallen brother. By silver streams that run down to the sea,  over snow and winter’s morn, I turn at last to paths that lead home. We came all this way but now comes the day to bid you farewell. With your blessing, I will go.

anonymous asked:

hi I was just wondering, how do I cast a circle?

Hello there dear. A fine question! And an involved process indeed. I’ve found a wonderfully detailed exposition on circle casting. Let me quote it - slightly abridged for clarity’s sake - for you.

What is Casting A Circle?

A circle as it is used in pagan traditions (usually) speaks of an imaginary circle created with energy. However many pagans choose to mark their circle physically using things like string, stones, plants, or just about anything else. A circle is cast by calling energies into a certain area in a certain way (we will go over that later) for a specific purpose.

Its purpose is twofold. It is to protect those within the circle from outside negativity and influence, and is used as a sort of harness for the energy that the practitioner(s) summons.

When is it done?

That depends entirely upon you/your group. Some people cast a circle before any spellwork they do including meditations and cleansing, others save it for big rituals done on sabbats and/or esbats, and some choose not to do it at all.

I would suggest that you follow your own intuition when it comes to this. Do you feel the need to make a circle before whatever ritual or spell you have set forth to do? Keep in mind that circle casting requires a pretty in depth amount of energy. It isn’t just done for the sake of doing it. But in the end, it’s totally up to you.’

Instructive so far, yes? Venture forth, dear. There’s lots more.
