Spell Craft

‘Wait, what, uh, are you telling me you can spell the time?’ 

She’d guaranteed me…

There was magic to be found, in this ancient art,
and that the destiny of soul’s, were ‘written’ in stars. 
How you're all blessed with different names, 
as in, our dates of birth, are never the same. 

That, it isn’t luck, good fortune or divine fate,
It’s something, you should ‘count on’ to contemplate.
To notice the repeating of numbers and patterns;
timing the synchronicity, of symbolic happenings. 

‘Words’ that can unlock doors with sacred keys,
your own secret, time machine, if you pleased.
Through the chaos, you could never have dreamed, 
that each ‘letter’ of a ‘word’ gifts, a simple theme. 

There is the potential of a ‘number’ in rule below,
a hidden code, that ‘figures’ the best path to go. 
The science of ‘Spelling’ is Pythagoras’ craft,
where divine truth is ascertained in its forecast.

Numerology is the ‘light in the dark’ of reality,
a ‘Signal’ to discover, your truth actually.

‘All Words are Spells’

To those who are interested in the magic of numbers. The word ‘SPELL’ adds up to “ONE” in numerology, meaning: To be the Pioneer of self. Original. Unique. Strong willed. Innovative. Having the courage and drive to go ahead into new fields of expression. ~ Numerology and the Divine Triangle ~ Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker.

Witch Words



‘What does the word witch mean?’ 


Face lights up … ‘Literally speaking’, it is the use of spelling.



Incorporate witchcraft into their writing and consider morning writing rituals as a form of magic. They usually research their own passions and interests. The Word Witch will very often have their own writing portal in their library, to practice their craft. They don’t always just use the library though. Many enjoy watching earthlings and taking long road trips in nature, as they scribble notes to take back to their sacred hub, to conjure word spells.

wishing will


I can’t help smiling, when I think of a ‘Wish’
mixed up yearnings, stirring within.
a dream, fantasy, a plan, a hope or a kiss?

In a poem, all wishes can come true,
in imaginary worlds written for you.
See your wishes as they become real,
that dreamy emotion, can you feel?

Don’t hold passion and persistence back,
take time to ponder what you want,
Why? and where you are at.

Wishing Will 

“Passion is different from interest. Those who are just interested in things have the 'wish' but passionate people have the 'will'.' ― Israelmore Ayivor

For the Love of Poetry

For the Love of Poetry

When pens, words and hearts collide,
her soul sends messages divined.
Woven jewels, sparkling delights,
spellings cast of magical inner sights.

Weaving rhythms, waves and patterns,
dancing tunes, of lyrics of passions.
For the love of poetry, her spirit runs free, 
if I didn’t write, i wouldn’t be true, to me.

March Musings


In Numerology, the month of March represents;

Three ~ Creative Expression.

Q: What is creativity?

A: The relationship between a human being and the mysteries of inspiration. 

~ Elizabeth Gilbert. Author of Big Magic

Nothing is more important this month, than to be free to use your imagination to beautify and create. Whatever you do, take time to express yourself!

Keep the spirit of your inner child alive, and be magickal and playful. Communicate straight from your heart. No wet blankets this month. 

Because life is fun and there are so many things to do, imagine and see.  You may have three things on the go this month. Find ways to express your emotions and slow down long enough to focus on the moment. Try not to scatter your energy and pizzaz  around in too many directions. 

Laughter is healthful for your soul, so seek a steady diet of wit and humour. 

Focus on your breath rising, as you listen, think and feel in this moment. Once you have a strong sense of new energy; visualise your intention. Bring that which has never been seen, into being, by the power of your creativity in all of its forms. 

Your March MANTRA should be:

“I do what makes me happy”

March Mission:

A wise man once said:

“In both writing and sleeping, we learn to be physically still at the same time we are encouraging our minds to unlock from the humdrum rational thinking of our daytime lives.”

Who am I?

 I am, temporal lobe epilepsy,
 society’s “invisible” disease.
 You won’t know about me,
 until, I fall down to my knees.

 Many think that, this is a curse,
 shunned and turned away in history,
 No ‘understanding’ which is worse.

 There are famous people who had this:
 did you know?
 Pythagoras, Socrates, Vincent Van Gogh,
 Lewis Carroll, and the lists begin to grow!

 My Doctor said: “This can be a ‘blessing,
 if you manage; “personality traits carefully’
 To all of those, with this ‘sacred disease’
 learn about the epilepsy positives please.

Personality Traits
 “Individuals with temporal lobe epilepsy, share a tendency to increased and extensive drawing or writing often of a cosmic or philosophical nature” Dr Bear called this tendency “Hypergraphia” ~ Tom Valeo ~ Neurology Today
 'Seized' ~ Eve LaPlante
(Robert M Kaplan Neuro-psychiatrist reports; in summary, 
 Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, acute or chronic, is a perfect analogy 
 for mystic behaviour.
Dow (1986) has proposed that mystics not only represent the world’s 
 oldest profession, but the world’s most versatile specialists. 
 Mystics may have been humanity’s first physicians, magicians, 
 artists, storytellers, timekeepers and weather forecasters 
 (Krippner 2002). ~ From the book: "Seized" by Eve La Plante
Mystic: Healer. Visionary. Druid. Shaman. Seer.  

Words Without End


Attentively waiting, tilting head,
listening in, to what is being said. 
You can’t pick a topic, a topic picks you,
a prompting of words, rushing through.

Happy, sad, funny or amusing,
you’ll find there is no choosing.
Then Bingo! out of the blue,
new dialog comes flowing through.

You’ll know just what to write,
sitting quietly, hearing inner sights. 
Words will not come on command,
or writing will be boring and bland.

Words from the spirit of heart, 
is where to make a new start. 
Within those words without end,
quickly rush to grab your pen.

On ‘Writers block’ 

Take the Chair

There was fun, frivolity and big smiles,
as each competitor recited their lines.
Some were sad, mournful and touching,
others, uplifting, happy, or grumbling.

Love was one thing, divorce the other,
some even talked about their own mother.
None interrupted as each poet stood up,
praying that today, they were in luck.

Listening intensely to wordsmith raps,
following the recitals, everyone clapped.
Rhymes that had all come together;
where listening in and silence tethered.

That first day when it all had began,
Lord Rhys had invited the Bards to stand.
From across the valleys of Wales they came,
to a ceremony; which still happens today.

Amid towers of Cardigan Castle in 1176,
poets and musicians all voiced their pitch.
In their diversity and commentaries of life,
audiences were entertained with delights.

Charmed, amused, bewitched and beguiled,
the Bardic Chair, awarded to favoured style.
Keepers of stories and secrets shared,
at the annual festival: National Eisteddfod.

This showcase is still repeated each year,
the victor gifted with a magnificent chair.
Among spiral stairways, within stone walls,
you can hear the musicians and bards call.

Rhys ap Gruffydd, known as our Lord Rhys,
instigated this arts and cultural masterpiece.
All were given an excellent opportunity,
to be crowned as *Barddoniath of their community.

In celebration of writers, poets and traditions;
Eisteddfod literally means “To Sit and Listen”
Victoria Healing ~ 18.6.2020

Eisteddfod:The closest English equivalent to eisteddfod is “session”; the word is formed from two Welsh morphemes: eistedd, meaning “sit”, and bod, meaning “be”.

‘The Crowning of the Bard’.
The National Eisteddfod of Wales dates back to 1176. Lord Rhys invited poets and musicians from all over Wales to a grand gathering at his castle in Cardigan. A chair at the Lord’s table was awarded to the best poet and musician, a tradition that continues today in the modern Eisteddfod.

They mourn in sadness and silence,
they, those recorders of early Welsh survival.
Oral society’s poets and bards of Celtic Britons,
their work was revised, romanced, rewritten.

Recited story telling lost and altered,
legends say, their ‘voices were exalted’
Incredibly some of their stories still exist,
in the praised “Medieval Welsh Manuscripts”

‘The Black Book of Camarthenshire’
Bard ‘Aneirin’ ‘Pa Gur’ and ‘The Book of Taliesin’
‘Mabinogion’ and of the Monk ‘Ninnius’
who was the author of “Historia Brittonum’

Our Order of Bards and Guild of poets,
undertook nine years to know this.
The scribing of sonnet was a craft,
unfortunately their narrators didn’t last.

These accounts are neither yours or mine,
as we slip back into the medieval times.
They belong to each and everyone,
immortalising those kind enough to tell them.

Making accurate historical research visible,
their keeping of traditions are considerable.
Sometimes we find blocks in history,
where we find the truth of all mysteries.

Laying on dusty shelves, suspended like ghosts,
waiting for ancient riddles to be known and spoke.
Flipping those magic pieces of paper open,
The record keepers find that history HAS spoken.

Welsh Storyteller: Cyfarwydd. The Bard within Druidry is the Poet; the keeper of tradition and history.
Like poets, the storytellers were also professionals; but unlike the poets, little of their work has survived. The bulk of this material is found in the collection known today as the Mabinogion.
