Flameshift to calm my own fears

Every day and every night that I say the geneology of Brighid
I shall not be killed
I shall not be harmed
I shall not be put into a cell
I shall not be wounded

No fire, no sun, no moon shall burn me
No lake, no water, no sea shall drown me.

For I am the child of Poetry,
Poetry, child of Reflection,
Reflection, child of Meditation,
Meditation, child of Lore,
Lore, child of Research,
Research, child of Great Knowledge,
Great Knowledge, child of Intelligence,
Intelligence, child of Comprehension,
Comprehension, child of Wisdom,
Wisdom, child of Brighid.
Carmina Gaedelica edited by Lunea Weatherstone

May my words be as considered as poetry,
May I reflect on all I do or say,
May I meditate on those things important spiritually
May I seek to know more of the lore
May I research what I am curious about and what will enable me to grow
May I seek to know great knowledge,
May I acknowledge the intelligence of others
May I comprehend what I seek to learn and apply those lessons
May I know that seeking wisdom is not the same as being wise.
May I be a child of Brighid.

SelfBlessing is by me


Brighid, bean-oirdheirc
Lasrach grad
Fetaim lasrach soillse
Thoir cuireadh sinne
ris a’ bheatha

Brighid, Sublime Woman
Quick flame
Long may you burn bright!
You give us the invitation
to life everlasting


Knot of Isis

Knot of Isis:

Just because

At the end of the universe
A blood red cord
Binds life to death and will to destiny
Let the knot of that red sash
Bind us together
Cradling our hips and weaving all our dreams.

(Chours) We are the knot where the whole world meets
Red magic passes through our veins
Magic of magic
Spirit of spirit
We are the power of Isis

We are bound mind to mind
We are bound heart to heart
Heaven in one hand
Earth in the other
We will walk in harmony


Give us not consolation
Give us Magic!
Give us the spell of living well
Give us Magic!

Chorus and
We are the power of Isis
We are the power of Isis
We are the power of Isis

Original translation from the Book of going forth – Normandy Ellis



My comforter

Your purr sooths my fears

When nothing else will

Walk with me in dark passages

Silently accompanying me


Your love is unchanging  from all your children

Thank you for the blessings

that come with being their beloveds

Thank you for the kiss of a cold wet nose

And for the huddled warmth next to me


Thank you for your blessed beings

When I need healing and comfort

Thank you for the laughter

From their antics and activities

Thank you for soft fur and loving eyes


Thank you for cuddles

When I am fearful or ill

Thank you for sharing our lives

May you continue to share your lives

With humankind

King of Arrows 

Still found in mountain woodlands in parts of Europe, the lynx is one of the creatures at the top of the food chain. With its speed and cunning, combined with its ability to climb trees, it is a formidable hunter as well as a fierce protector of its young. 

The lynx balances powerful action with needful passivity. 

A person of power, able to defend, protect and nourish their children or inner child, proud and independent. A tendency to anger curbed by a warm heart.

Two of Cups 

Initial attraction and exploration of potential. The beginning of a relationship or friendship and the precursor to interchange of polaric energies. Opposition and attraction in life. 

… energy held in tension; the possibility of union and fulfilment.

 The Lovers

On a personal level, love is a universal gift to the generous heart and the seeker will find balance through inner harmony and healing. 

Polarity is the key element in the natural ebb and flow of emotional commitment between two people. The Lovers also represents a positive spiritual force of creative emotional energy and the universal desire for harmony and peace. 

The creatures of the Greenwood revere and respect the rites of love as the force that ensures the unfolding cycle of creation and future emotional stability. 

Between the Lovers is the maypole, or living birch tree, once erected every Beltane. This represents the Tree of Life, spanning the three worlds. 

It is love that enables one to transcend the boundaries of these worlds, uniting the physical, emotional and the spiritual. 

In some ways this is a card of young or new love, yet to be tested by time.

Eight of Cups 

By looking at the past, acknowledging our mistakes and learning from them, we grow and attain new wisdom. The future waits to be unfolded by our positive action. 

The wheel has come full cycle. On one level this represents a solstice feast, a broth made for sharing. On a deeper level this card represents a profound rebirth. 

Transformation in which all the elements of oneself are being poured in order to be recombined. 

Focusing in the present.
