Lately, a lot of doom and gloom talk has been going on, so I thought I'd post this little experience to see what people thought, and to share something that I found truly amazing.
For those of you who know me from this site, you know that I'm a 13 year old Wiccan. For those of you who don't...well you do now.
A few weeks ago, I had a friend over, and we decided to cast a circle at about, oh, 5 in the morning. I decided to cast the first circle. So of course, I lit the candles as I greeted to each element. I turned the East, and asked the element Wind to join the circle. Then did the same with Fire in the South, Water in the West, Earth in the North, and Spirit in the Center.
I did a simple element appreciation circle. After finishing, I departed with each element, taking a clear jar to snuff out the candles. I departed with Wind, Fire, Water, and Earth, but saved Spirit for last as always. I had the jar on the candle to snuff it out for the same time as the other element, but with this candle, it reflamed as soon as I took the jar off. I simply smiled and said to my friend "It doesn't want to go out" And I have to admit, I felt a bit like crying.
Then my friend cast her circle the same way as I. When she got to departing with the Spirit candle, it took longer to burn out then the rest.
For those of you who don't know, the Spirit candle in Wiccan basically represents Life and the Goddess. And ever since that day when I cast the circle, I've felt so touched by the Goddess. Almost like for one moment, she decided to send out a signal to say "Yes, I am here"
I hope you all enjoy everyday. Treat it like your last. And remember, Light and Love can be found in the simplest places. Even in a circle.
