My inside Goddess is telling me do something, so I go and clean-up the kitchen ,the showers, do more Laundry, and is never done. So I decide Holidays are for just doing nothing at all. I got a few books as a gifts from my friends, and busy busy had no time to open then, until last night. Boy oh boy my friends know me. I love Janet Evanovich books, she is fanny , keep you going and no harm done to your brain. So I got one of her latest books. Is a funny novel and it takes place on my favorite town" Salem, Ma" . Cool !!!So I m here just reading and enjoying a goofy witch who doesn't have clue what is to be a "witch" it all. The book name is "Wicked Appetite" All of you may like to read from time to time some good sense of humor ,these book got all that. So in my down lazy time I will be upstairs shoes off , reading . i should I sign the said: " Spell are in the slow cooker". And with a picture of a lazy chic!! Moving her Cauldron with her foot mean while she is reading her book.Cute Ha?
After all the year is almost done, no rush to do any spells !! Take it easy girls!!, kick off your shoes and just enjoy it while it last... we will be running like chicken with their head cut off pretty soon. So until we meet again , I'm just doing nothing , blessed be. Andrea.

....Until we meet again.

That is my favorite part of our open or closing ceremonies in our circle. And today just to think how many will be saying those words it gave me chills!! A friend of mine name Julie just told me today she is going to a yoga studio and they will be celebrating " Winter Solstice" with a 100 Sun salutations!!! . How nice is that.Love Julie my friend and sister in a spiritual level.
We ALL are united in a way ,in a spiritual way. The planet connect with us and us with the planet ,making a beautiful circle of energy, we can feel it as it is, friends around the world gather their energy's in a ritual and celebrating what is has being for thousand of years the "wheal of the year" .
I'm in love with full moon's these will be a lunar eclipse as well!!More to reconnect in energy forces and so perfect to be in our " yule"or winter Solstice . I will be celebrating it in my own way, connecting with the planet my family and sending all those special blessings to all the people that are "helpful spirits" . They are in a human form ,yes, but they can have almost the mystic veil around them, they talk with peace ,attract loving people, share their magic with others, and most of all take care of our souls. I have so many friends but those with those power !! are even greater to have. So these time of the year I just like to take Extra care of them, I have being so busy baking and making little things for my friends!! So busy that my blog has being neglected from these last week,
. Last year one of my close friends give me an ornament of a girl full with bags and is saying" Too much of the good things is !!WONDERFUL. So yes I have a full week of wonderful things, friends, family, love and baking cookies with my kids! that is all I really enjoy, home ,warm nights ,stay in too cold to go out!! And is raining like it never does!! here in San Diego.
My tree is so pretty full of meaningful ornaments, and no tree top! I decide these year to not put a thing up there , do you think anybody here will notice? Not it all !! the kids just look dawn to their future presents!! Is good to be a happy kid, is good to make magic for them , so these year and like any other year my tradition is the same, make my children a happy life!!!And don't forget to put some cookies out tonight for" Baba Yaga"She definitely loves her cookies and she will stop by !! And if you don't have any cookies ,she just may take the kids!! Blessings to all of you planing your "yule" celebrations, May the winter man bring blissful kisses to you, may the wind blow soft to your ear , may all your wishes be fulfill!!May you walk in peace to find those with the same spirit , May you honor the Goddess in you today!!! Merry meet and merry part !! the circle is open ... but never be broken...Until we meet again!!!!

Power to the witch!

I m a witch!!! And proud Witch!!! . I have being chosen by the Goddess . I keep my self in tune with the planet my surrenders,my walk on these earth and to treat everybody as part of these planet. Blessings come always in different packages !! And I repeat to myself I'm bless ,I'm bless.
I got amazing people around me , my family my kids and other half . For them to have a Witch in their life is Blessing too! That is always said to me by my friends. Not they just say just because, they show me all the time their friendship to me, whenever they travel it will always something for me ,not just any gift , it will be a magical gift ,something they found on a walk a rock , a stone .Sometimes is thing for me to wear and so on.

One of my lovely friends is in the book business , so Before a book is at the store she will get it for me!! how cool is that !! And of course is all the witches books. Im not going to say her name for protection!! I protect all friends like her . She is a publisher and for that I will keep it quiet . But here is the thing. I get all those novels and Magical books galore!Bless her and keep her at her job! I will keep sending blessings to her for ever.
I just got a book that is going to rock for all of us!! I'm just telling you is so good! Im not even intro the full book but is good. Name...." The discovery of witches" , It will come out on February next year . Deborah Harkness .Amazon has it already post it ,but is not for sale yet.

The book industry is so big sometimes I think I need to never leave home and read and read so I can catch up!! Love spell books ,novel about witches and any old book the may look mysterious to me. Long time ago I was on the search of a very old witches book, so I will check on line and do phone calls, all that kind of things . Well I stop when I found out the those books are in a Medival language and sometimes, so dark and as a collector told me writing with blood !! O K that took care of me in my search !!! . I still believe there are old good books !!! with magic on them, If they suppose to come to me they will come , just like all these new books !! They just come because of what I call " The power of a witch"

One of my dreams is to finish my book that wrote , so far is still there waiting for me to continue , and you know as artist we get our own little drama and our art suffer all the consequences . I hope my own self kick my own butt one day and just do it !!.
" Season of the witch" movie is coming out ,and of course i will be there!!! And with my Nicholas Cage what else can a witch ask for, is all good and good. So let keep writing a page at the time. And get more little magic from books and Great friend's. Bless to my friends they are part of me and me part of them. Blessed be . Andrea.

Witches Travel !!!

I m a firm believer on my craft!! of course, so I collect important things when I travel. Im very lucky to say I travel a lot or did ,lets see these new year ,who knows? . At every city that I go their is always a witchy store, so over the years i got a nice collection of these and that. Part of all is to remember the town or city I went o visit.

When I went to Alaska, love that place so magical , mystical, the energy around those cold mountains ,it brings back to the ancestors of the land, when the wind blow ,you can almost hear a song in your ear!!!! misty , but so beautiful. So at one of there town I found a young little witch!!! Love it .I guess I attract the energy of the Goddess ,is always easy for me to get to the right place. At the particular stores I got one of my favorites rings!!! Is a labradorite stone and it has being since then my " travel stone" i use the ring whenever I got in a plane and is such good feeling ring.
So Yes I m addicted to trinkets and magical stores , I went to New Orleans ,a couple years ago , did the same thing I always do, get as much tour's I can. The city has so much to see, you need a week just to visit all those cemetery and to hear each tour guide tell you all about ghost and lost souls !!! is so rich in all the matter and Vampires too . Marie Laveau's is an attractive tour, and to meet the High Priestess " Miss Miriam " at the Temple is something I recommended to all of my friends . You can go to see voodoo stores galore ! and to visit Miss Marie at the cemetery ,that is the highlight of the trip.
Before I got there I already new all her life ,read and study as much as I could !! you get chill when you see her tombstone, all the people the come to her site to ask for favors and petitions,and me and all the gift the people brings is really something!! Her energy still feels so strong in her shop and around her house. Yes there is at lot to see in there , don't worry about the city, is a mess just ignore all the crazy things around.

And there is always a new place to go, Salem of course is my all time favorite ,wonder why, visit Laurie Cabot and go to her store !!The cat ,the crow and the crown . Is a really cute store ,and of course to visit our sister's in town!! bring flowers for the past ones at the Salem witch memorial.

So there is Europe too and the Mayan pyramids that I tough I was going to die to get there but I will just keep it in sections so you can read all in little bites !!! small and with a cup of coffee and keep coming for some more . I will post some more about that after next week, today I'm flying and going away to Costa Rica with labradorite ring "protection for the travelers" .

Until them ,Blessed be ,I know I will always find a witch or a Shaman wherever I go.

Old wife's tales !

I have to fly away these week, So because of that I have being so efficient in so many ways!!! And I like that. When I got so much time I take my time for every thing, sometimes that is a good thing but others are not such good thing. The best part of going away for a few days is my own personal challenge. Keep all things running around my life, that is kids dogs and my man. Then is my work ,after that is play time !! no is the other way ,first play them work or something like that. I m going to visit my Mom for a day only( is perfect) and after the one day, I will be in business trip with my brother and his family,that is the best part. So OK here is the real deal, growing up, back in my old country and my lovely Mom ,she was so cool yes back them , she tough me so much about the craft! Yes our witchcraft, she didn't know she was one, but she was one and a really good witch !!and a great healer too!!. Sadly today she is in a different believe, and know she is a noon practitioner!!! Why ? is always my question. She is my Mom in all and all I do love her ,but I m not allowed to said a thing about the good old days. She always said " Don't said that any more! " . I lost the interest to even sit and talk to her,yes is not good but is true. How can some one change the way she grew to something else. She said is because she finally found God . And I said OH MY GOD, she wont laugh any more ,every thing is bad and bad ,birth days , Mothers day, Christmas ,new years ,and everything that is like some kind of fun . She knows why I wont stay at her house , I don't deal with her Guilt's, Im maybe a little too hard about that .We understand each other so well at the same time, we just accept each other just that way we are. But still I just love to tease her about her call "old believes" . I said some smart comment like " Mom do you still sweep the house backwards to bring good luck ?" She will answer : "no; now I know it was just old wife tales!!
I do like old wife's tales ,I always enjoy then so I'm going to name a few of all the "Old wife's tales that my Mom told me when I was just a little girl .

1) To bring money and good luck to your home swept your home from the front of the house to the back!! Keep all dirt together .It represent the future money!.

2) Keep house plants well taking care , check any shapes that they may show!! Something like a number ,and play it in the lottery!!

3) If you need a husband , put San Antonio up side down!!! He wont like that but he will bring some one soon !! Then you can put San Antonio back to normal.

4) If you lost something, call San Antonio for help !!! My Dad still does it just to annoy my Mother " Antonio ,Antonio!!!

5) To stop the breast milk got a river and cut some leaves from around there ! Brush them on your breast and trow them away and the river will take away the milk!!! Yeap! She said she did it and that is for real!!

6) Want o meet the Devil go to the same river ,pick again some leaves,now you need to now how to swim for these one !!! get those leaves and trow them at the river, one of the leaves is going to run opposite of the river-flow , get it and he will show!!! How my Mom know that ? I don't know :)

7) Put a red cord at the right arm of a new born to prevent the evil eye! from all new visitors.

8) In thunder storm trow knives at the front door!!! It will keep the storm away from where you are!!

9) For a kidney infections put salt on your belly and keep it there with some tape!!!

10) Keep a glass full of water by your bed! there may be a thirsty spirit around ,and will protect you from further harm !!

11) pregnant!!! Do not drink young coconut milk! it can bring the baby sooner then you want!!

OK and what about today's thing with bottles of water, our poor spirits! they better learn to open those too!!!
Cultures are a beautiful thing and we should pass it on to our next generation!Just the same way they were told to us ,from our Grandma to the other and so on!!!

any way is just my thing for now ,I will be with my Mami on Sunday and I wold love if she just stop praying for me, like she Tell's me all the time , "oh Honey I will pray for you" I told her Yesterday 'Don't please "I told her there are really scary things out there! Im not one of those" and she said" I know"
Yes I know is the typical Mom always worry for her kids! I worry about my kids too!! And then I will go and bless a candle for them , Bless my Mama I love her no matter what! she is my Mama. Blessed be Andrea.
