High Priestess Spell!

Beloved Friends, Community and Human Family,
Let’s do a collective spell! A spell is an “active prayer.” It is the intentions and desires of prayer wrapped up with sensory experience, words, actions, symbolic and magical associations that strengthen and energize the prayer.
Our world is hurting, our political climate is volatile and polarized. Our communities are suffering and we need to do everything we can to help lift our society toward higher values: compassion, generosity, integrity, peace, justice, harmony.
Of course, we do our best to practice kindness in our relationships with family, friends, neighbors and fellow humans. We offer our energy and resources toward supporting those in need. And, we participate in shaping our political system by VOTING!!
Your voice counts! The right to vote is powerful, precious and not to be squandered. We need to bring our love, passion, confidence, optimism and energy to the voting booth. We need to support and empower others to do the same. Let’s work together to elect public servants, representatives, senators, governors, and presidents who truly reflect the beauty, diversity, wisdom and compassion of the people.
I’m offering this spell for us to do individually and collectively. You can follow my instructions to a T, or modify it according to your needs. Please commit to doing this spell at least once. And you could repeat it every day, every week, whenever you wish leading up to the election November 3rd! Invite your friends, family, community members to join you!
Share it far and wide! Let’s make it a thing! WITCHES GO VIRAL!
Please send me a photo of your altar (only if you’re comfy sharing), or a selfie with your prayer bundle, or you and your beloved raiding the spice cupboard for witchy supplies…or any aspect of the spell you’d like to share! I’d love to make a witchy collage of all our good workings!
Then find some tangible ways to help get out the vote. Offer to babysit for friends with young children so they can get to the polls, offer rides to people who need them, encourage everyone you know to get mail-in ballots, make sure you are registered and nudge others to do the same.
I will be organizing a voting party after we get our mail-in ballots. You’ll be invited to join me on Zoom with your ballot in hand (you can keep it secret and vote however you wish). We’ll read through issues, discuss candidates (no argument and no persuasion, just learning and sharing in a safe, friendly environment, getting the voting task done!). Stay tuned for date, time, and link.
Or organize your own; your party, your rules!
Blessed Be!

P.S. A super good voting resource for you: https://www.vote411.org/

P.P.S. I drew a Tarot card asking about sending you this spell and I drew the High Priestess.

Dear Friends, 
Nearby fires make for the most glorious sunsets. How’s that for a silver lining?
I have a sad update, a request, and some upcoming info for you. Ready?

Due to nearby fires and those glorious sunsets, the Sufi retreat with me and Rahmat is cancelled (or you can think of it as suspended until next year…we hope). Rahmat and I are in conversation about offering some Zoom sessions in lieu of an on-site retreat. Stay tuned for more info! 

Are you a self-identified atheist? If so, would you be interested in participating in a panel discussion for the benefit of some folks who are doing a Cherag training program with me? I’m organizing a Zoom session for Sunday, September 6th, 10 AM MDT. Would love to have 4 to 6 atheists share about their personal beliefs (or not beliefs) perspectives on religion, spirituality, sensitivities, preferences, etc. Please email me if you’d like to be part of this: rain@trigoddess.org

Your support is always appreciated! https://www.paypal.me/sararain

For various reasons not worthy of your time, I have this ditty in my brain today. Probably some benefit to staying home to travel these days, eh? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg2sOIx-Qv8

Blessings of deep peace, great joy and ease with each moment’s gifts, 

Wheel of Fortune

Beloved Community, 
According to the Pagan calendar, we are officially in AUTUMN!!! Yay! Woohoo! Starting to see the first clumps of yellow leaves, evening air giving a hint of chill.
