Well, I didn't get to do a ritual or anything for Samhain/Halloween. I wasn't home and didn't have any of my stuff with me. I did say a small prayer for blessings in the next year outside under the beautiful fall colors. It was just after the sun had set and the still golden light made the atmosphere perfect.

Last week I did my first closure ritual. A month previous I had done a small ritual to bring prosperity. The second ritual was to end or bring closure to the first, which had run it's planned course. I burned the parchment containing the original spell using the joined flames of my Goddess and God candles. Then I scattered the ashes to the wind. Afterwards, I felt so wonderful. There was a real sense of peace and calm. It really lifted my spirits.

I can't wait to plan my next ritual. The weather is getting colder. The skies will be clearer and the absence of leaves on the trees will give me much more moonlight to work with. I love the moonlight in winter. It's very comforting and pleasing to me. Always has been.

Well, that's it for now. I'll write more later.

Well, last night I had my tiny Mabon celebration. I cooked and prayed. I made a lovely meal of fresh bread, baked apples and some fabulous raspberry wine. It tasted wonderful. Then when I was finished I took a bit of eveything, took it out to the woods and committed it back to the earth as my offering for the year's bounty.

I've been doing this small "committal ritual" with my Halloween pumpkins for many years, even before I began my pagan journey. It was always just something that felt right, so I did it. This was the first time I had used it for another observance.

This was my first celebration and I think it went well. Next time I'll have to try some new things and put more into it. I'll have to incorporate more of my prayer ritual. I'll have to see what I can do for Samhain/Halloween.

The thing is, the roommates aren't too comfortable with the whole pagan ritual thing in the house. Only reason I got to have this celebration was I was alone this weekend with the roomies being out of town. I'll have to see what I can do.

Rule #1: Do not Friend this journal or comment if you intend to: attack me for my beliefs, tell me how wrong I am or that I'm going to Hell, or proselytize to me. I will only delete you.

Well, as you may have guessed, I'm a pagan. I'm relatively new to the path. I've been studying for almost three years now. I'm an eclectic solitary who is just starting to get comfortable with the idea of "coming out of the broom closet", but I'm slow to do it. I have my "stealth altar", as I call it, inside a nice wooden box I got at A.C. Moore. I celebrate my sabbats carefully, and the only people I've told so far are my best friends from college. They have their ideas, and in some cases reservations, but they still love and support me. This journal is yet another tool I will be using as I continue on my path to spiritual happiness. I will periodically make entries as to what I am doing to celebrate, what I'm learning, observations I've made, and many other things. Feel free to friend me, since there most certainly will be Friends Only posts, but this is mostly just a place for me to record my life as an emerging pagan.

~Blessed be.
