Full Moon and the long weekend

Excited about the full moon. Our covens ritual is this weekend, Saturday. Going to be great I just know it. I can feel something in the air.

Also the long weekend is going to be nice too. Nice weather and maybe a traveling to the mountains and enjoy the wonders of nature.

There is a park up in the foothills outside of Denver that I have been want to check out for some time. This feel like the perfect time.

I am continueing my studies on Hecate. I feel so connected to her it surprises me sometimes.

Brightest Blessings.

My Sacred Place Number 1

I am blessed to live in a city that has some wonderful places to walk and be with nature will still being in the city itself. One such place is long the Bear Creek. There are the traditional cement walking path that are also used by the bikes. I prefer to walk on what is called the Stonehouse Horse Trail. This trail weaves it way along side the creek, through trees and clearings.

I think I have found a perfect ritual spot too. Problem, it is in a very public spot. Lots of people use the trails here.

The whole area is just full of magic energies. I feel so energized while walking the trails. I was able to find my wand while walking the trails one day.

I think some day I may just say screw it and take some things with me and have a small meditation ritual among the wonders of nature and Gaia

The Beginning.

This blogging thing is not as easy as I thought it would be. I am reading a book right now on starting a blog. Kind of funny. There is a lot of good information in it even though he uses Wordpress in his examples. I just like Blogger better.
I guess I should tell a little bit about myself.
I will only be using my craft name on my posts. It is Cainwyne Haef Kemelis. I was born over 40 years ago in the great state of Colorado. I was raised in the Lutheran religion but during my teenage years I stopped attending church. Thus began my journey on my path with the gods and goddesses, even though I didn't know it at the time. I spent some time in the military but the fact that I am gay didn't sit well with some and I was asked to leave. I was a bit disappointed in that but I moved on. I returned to Colorado and began to live my new life.
I have loved and lost many times in my life. I have lost lovers to illness and family to time.
My journey along the path revved up in 2006 when I picked up my first book at a Borders Bookstore. It was Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart. I devoured it. It was funny while I was reading it I would think 'that is me'. I soon enrolled in The Grey School of Wizardry. I was having the time of my life. Everything was making sense to me. I began to explore my spirituality and what the path had to offer. While working on my classes and after a talk with a wise witch friend of mine I came to the realization that the moniker of 'wizard' was not who I was. I was pagan, more to the point I was a witch and always have been.
So now I am a witch and proud of it. Right now I am with a coven here in Colorado and I am working on my Year and A day studies. I LOVE it.

I think that is a good bit of stuff. Until my next post.....

Merry We Meet,
Merry We Part,
And Merry We Meet Again.

Brightest Blessings.
