Know This, A Poem By Jason Mote

"This was a poem that came to me when I first found my path and initiated.   Shortly prior to writing this I had a meditation where I met the Goddess and she welcomed me with open arms and a loving embrace and simply said welcome home.  An interesting note and not in any way done on purpose if you notice when you center the poem it forms a chalice from which to receive nourishment and encouragement. "

 

 

 

Know This

 

Behold your power, you are a child of the Gods

You are a Father or Mother of time, your soul was born before time

You hold the mysteries of the ancient ones in your blood

You hold the keys to the power of the universe

You have been chosen this life and many others to serve

You have been appointed by the Gods to your task

You hold power over reality, as such you change reality

You are of an ancient religion

You hold power, wisdom, compassion, and love

You are Wicca

One who bends

You are a Witch

And a Priest or Priestess of the Gods

 

 

 

Prayer & Blessing Requests

We occasionally receive requests throughout the month for prayers and blessings as members of our tribe and extended spiritual family struggle through the challenges of life as well as share in their triumphs and new journeys on their paths. Here, we ask that you add a candle to your altar or otherwise send energies to the following people who have requested prayers and blessings:

 

We've received no prayer requests since the last newsletter was published. Blessed Be!

UPCOMING EVENTS:

TOSS - Rose Moon Esbat – Saturday, July 8th

Our apologies, but Esbats are open to Initiated Clergy, Spouses and Candidates ONLY as these are the times we do our personal magickal workings and hold temple business meetings. Temple Of the Standing Stones is a Skyclad group which means our esbat rituals are conducted Skyclad. If you are a visiting tradition clergy member from another group, please plan accordingly. If you are not sure what that means, please get in touch with us for an explanation as there are rules of etiquette involved. An article will be posted soon detailing Skyclad Ritual Etiquette. All others, please feel free to attend our next open gathering.
