I did a thing I have been wanting to do for years but too apprehensive. I finally had the courage to submit to ArtzBlitz Creative Writing 2021! The theme was “Future” and we had 24 hours once we were told of the theme to submit. My entry “This Future of Mine” is listed last – T.

I was inspired to enter when it came up synchronicity wise whilst I was studying Hekate through a structured class I am currently undertaking (which I felt compelled to join after watching the teacher speak in which I was deeply moved). I like being open to learn more about Hekate in any way I can – one way being through other people’s perception and knowledge of Her (and why I like to read so much on Hekate and other people’s practices devoted to her). The poem was written between study sessions of the course I am doing on Hekate and submitted. I like how this class is making me take a step back and view things in a different perspective. It’s allowed me to reassess and explore my devotion to Hekate whilst also opening myself up to new experiences.
In this issue, for my column Walking With the Goddess, I share my article on “Ritual“. This article contains various ritual techniques and I finish off the article with a self-initiation ritual with the aid of Hekate.
In this issue, for my column Walking With the Goddess, I share my article on “How to Protect Yourself“. This article contains various protection techniques utilising the elements of earth/air/fire/water with respects to the Body/Mind/Spirit/Emotion and I finish off the article with simple protection magick with the aid of Hekate.
In this issue, for my column Walking With the Goddess, I share my article on “How to Cleanse and Purify Using the Elements“. This article contains various purification techniques utilising the elements individually, and brings them all together in a ritual I have specifically written, encompassing them all.
In this issue, for my column Walking With the Goddess, I share a poem I wrote to my patron Hekate as her devotee and avid herbalist called, “Hekate’s Herbalist”.
There are also some wonderful articles in this issue, including a Cord Spell, The Spell Cord and Meditation: Purification by Flame, which is very Hekate-centric in my opinion and a great addition to one’s practice to the Goddess.
