Live Your Christed Self
I AM, That I AM
More than a Triad
Power of Action
New Moon – July 15, 2015
6:24:18 p.m. Pacific Standard Time
I am early putting this letter out to you. I’m about to travel to Oklahoma for a wedding of a granddaughter. Please finish the work with the final phases of the Water Trio. As a matter of fact, you will once again find you will finish at New Moon as we continue to recognize the power of the changes this year. New Moon is on July 15th at 6:24:18 pm Pacific Daylight Time. The New Moon and the Sun will be finishing their round in Cancer (Oak) as they meet up at 23 degrees 14 minutes of this Zodiac vibration. As the Sun will be opposite Earth in Capricorn, you may find that you are contemplating more about your parents (Cancer – Mother; Capricorn – Father). You may also be aware of what your foundation of life (Cancer) has done to help you expand your career and expression of your gifts to others (Capricorn). Then, the moon will enter the zodiac sign of Leo (Holly) at 7:15 a.m. on July 16th . Do allow yourself to reflect on all that you gathered through the Triad of Water with Oak at the conscious helm. Then prepare to enter the realm of Fire, for the second time this year; with Holly/Leo at the Cognitive Level.
Contemplate this reality: When we enter the realm of Oak in a given lunar year cycle, we make note that what we set as a goal during Birch is ready to come to a fruition and manifest (Birth). When we reach Holly’s time, we are accepting the full birth of what we have set in motion. We are at a stage of reaping the rewards of what we manifest. We are most certainly ready to be working with our ideas, putting them into action and sharing them with others. The Fire quality reminds us that we are prepared to originate this next level. We are ready to take action, and we are ready to share.
The Seventh Trio action of 2015 – Initiated in Holly – The Cognitive State – Expressing your self; with her Active Partner – Suil
We now move the Holly consciousness out of the subconscious level and put this field of energy into action in our daily living and our personal thinking power. We are ready to be with others and demonstrate our Calling. We are ready to expand with a new birth of ideas and directions our soul has lead us to express.
What are you ready to express? How are you prepared to do this?
As we use the Universal energy of this lunar cycle and reveal its power to our selves through the iconic design of Holly, it is important to know that in the cycles of the year, we are at the first harvest of reaping what we have sown. For the next 3 lunar cycles, we will gather from our efforts, take action to express our personal power, and reveal all that we have done to qualify and quantify our Ideal Self. We stand out. We live with the positive expression of knowing we are doing exactly what we have been Called to do!
In the Wisdom of the Tree of Life, Fire is an active field that stands ready at all times to initiate as well as reveal the Great Work of the Divine. Through our self, then, we are asked to stand ready to move into action and manifest the Great Work that is used through our individual self.
Holly aligns with the path on the Tree and the Hebrew letter of Teth (y). Teth translates as Snake and represents the Fire of Spirit moving in Its power (i.e., the Kundalini) through us. When this power moves through our many states of consciousness and fully arrives in our cognitive state, we will automatically live with the power of self expressing our gifts. We will live fulfilled in the Universal Law of Self Dominion. As such, we will delight in fulfilling our True Calling. We will live proudly who we are (without arrogance). And, we be quite willing to share with others so they, too, can dance in the light of confidence, self empowerment and the joy of creating realities best suited for each person’s calling.
With Holly at the Helm of Cognitive Consciousness, we can abide in self awareness and achieve our successes. We can manifest our talents and love what we are doing as well as who we are. We will live in the Universal Law that is stimulated to full strength in Holly: The Law of Self Dominion. No thing, no person, no event, including ourselves, can stand in the way of our good when we are living in true self dominion.
The Action portion of Holly is Suil (Sun). What a power to actively reveal our light. What a gift to bring our mind into the awareness of living out our Highest and Best qualities. Suil calls us into the action of living with our ego through the refined level of our Christed-Self; a Master of living through all elements of our life. And least we forget, Suil vibrates with the Law of Regeneration and the Path of Resh, r , seen on the Tree of Life. It calls us to regenerate the passion and purpose of our soul and live it with consciousness.
Subconscious Level – Elder, with her partner Jupiteranu – Activating the Divine
As Elder expresses through the subconscious level of ourselves, we will recognize how to keep the refined higher self active consciously by remembering to enter realms of silence through our subconscious, perioidically. For in the Power of Silence, the fire we will connect with will be the banked fire of Source, ready to be released when our three-levels of consciousness are congruently working together.
Elder is aligned with the Hebrew letter of Samekh (x) and the Law of Adaptation. Therefore our inner self will help connect us with the support of a higher order (The Divine, Angels, guides and guardians). And, will help us adapt at all levels to the knowing of our Higher Self/Divine Self that is ready to manifest and reap from wisdom of our True Being. Elder’s influence will guide us to benevolent actions toward are self as well as all others, for we will see the power of Source in the presence of family, friends, and acquaintances. We will be able to see them as “helpers” on the field of our personal growth (challenging or rewarding helpers).
The active power of Elder is Jupiteranu. At this inner level of our subconscious, Jupiteranu will use the vibration of the Law of Contraction/Expansion. Whenever deemed necessary by our Higher Self, Jupiteranu will call us into our inner being, to rest, contemplate and move into silence so we can grasp the wisdom of the guidance we can feel, hear and perhaps see by an inner vision. Jupiteranu is associated with the Hebrew Letter Kaph (f), which means the Grasping Hand. With this power, we can grasp the wisdom for the silent resources of the Divine, feel it through our intuitive knowing, and chose to respond with our ability to bring this wisdom forward through our personal life.
Super Consciousness – Alder and companion Marsella – I AM That I AM
Alder now sits in the field of the Super Conscious state. She allows the Influence of the Higher Mind to stimulate action with a more Divine Intention wrapped in all of our desires. The higher influence is reminding us to Build our World with the Grace and independence of soul desire. The Higher Mind calls us to truly Live the True Calling without any hesitation. Don’t wait on someone to say it is okay. Don’t wait for the day that it will be better timing. Don’t wait on a certain amount of abundance. Alder says, Don’t Wait. Know that who you are and what you are presenting into your daily activity is exactly what is to be. It is the I AM and you are the I Am That I AM. The Creation of Creation. The Power of Expressing the Expression of the I AM…you are That of the I AM. Hear and see within you the Divine saying, “ I Am That, I Am. I AM That, I AM You!” You repeat to the Divine: “I AM That, I AM. I AM That, I AM You!”
Alder’s alignment with the Hebrew Letter, Heh (v), reminds you that you carry, at your highest level, the power to see through the Eye of the Divine. You have the power to recognize your true calling and see exactly what, where and how you are living that calling. The Eye of the Divine (Heh) is your guiding eye!
Alder also associates with the Universal Law of Worldly Development. It is within this Super Conscious State you realize that your higher mind is guiding you to develop your personal world into the stage of expression for your True Calling, living your talents, and being your creative self.
The active partner of Alder, Marsella, will help you activate this quality of yourself. It will be done through the Sound of the Divine Voice through your personal mouth. For Marsella is a vibrant energy of the Hebrew letter, Peh (p). This letter has a translation as Human Mouth and the Law of Purification. Your Super Conscious level will inspire you with the language of the Divine and encourage you to speak with positive conviction and affirmation of who you are, the talents you do possess, and the willingness to actively express your True Calling. With the Law of Purification you will automatically know when you need to clean up your words and change them to words and phrases that honor the I AM that you Are with the courage to act upon your talents and be rewarded by adapting your life in accordance to your highest nature and expressing it to everyone and through every opportunity within your personal reality. Are you ready?
Will you use these beautiful messengers of your 3 state of conscious?
The cosmic alignment of the new moon can be found on the blog page of www.spicawayoflight.com. Just open to that page with this url:
http://www.spicawayoflight.com/blog/?p=889. I am still having difficulty with my WomanSpirit website. Until all is in order, I will continue to use our SPICA site.
We do have a Celtic Festival during this lunar cycle: It is Lammas, which is the 5th Celtic Festival of the year. It means, “Feast of August.” It is added to the end of this letter, due to the website difficulties.
This is the time of the First Harvest and the doorway to Fall. Yes, Summer begins her end-time. Now you are reaping your rewards, for sure. Yet, know there are 3 months of reaping to honor your intentions of the year. Take your time and harvest well.
The Feast of August (generally August 1st) is another tine in which you can begin using the “Year and a Day” message and commit to something you truly want to accomplish. Do you wish to start a new job, write a new story, build a new division in your business, start a new relationship? Now is the time to take action and be committed for at least a year and a day.
I must apologize for the note on a Black Moon occurring this month. That was incorrect information from last year. I hope I have not totally confused any of you.
May you enjoy the Summer play time that I hope all of you are experiencing. May all travel have the blessings of the be the wings of cars, air planes, boats, etc. Have Fun!
Warm blessings of love,
Rev. Katherine Bell, Ph.D., D.D.
President, SPICA – Way of Light

Magick of Lughnassadh–Lammas
This cross-quarter ceremony is best done between August 1st – August 7th (the day the Sun will be at 15 degrees of Leo). It can also occur throughout the Month and all the way up to Fall Equinox. Vibrant energy will be supporting you to align with the Universe and the emanating vibrations known to the Druids as Lughasadh and also called Lammas. It is a celebration day of the Sun and the First Harvest of the year. Lammas is the 5th Festival of a Druidic year. It means, “Feast of August.” It is during this time that our ancestors celebrated the foods of the Earth and the honoring of the Great Mother for her abundance that was not only seen, but felt, tasted, shared and used in many ways for the continuance of life (including replanting of seeds from the foods used at the celebration). It was a time of great gatherings and the families would come together to celebrate the gifts of the Earth Goddes, play games, compete, and form unions. The union of marriage was performed at this time, with a couple coming before the Priest/Priestess to honor their relationship and to set out for one year and a day to explore the relationships value for life. If, after the year and a day they found they could not remain together, they came back to the ceremony of Lughasadh, announced their decision to the Priest/Priestess, and the marriage was annulled. If, they found they were compatible, they held another ceremony to seal the marriage for life.
Commitment was a theme of the day; and so it is for the ritual you will perform. It is time to look at your commitments. What are they for? Are you committed to a loving relationship? Are you looking to commit to a loving relationship? Are you committed to an educational process? Are you committed to a career process? Are you committed to a community project? Are you committed to a Spiritual Quest? What is the commitment (s) you would like to focus on, empower by the right use of energy, and then honor for a year-and-a-day? Think on this with an open heart and open mind. This is a great power time of the Grain Goddesses (all of them from any country, spiritual group or practice). For this Ritual we will call forth Taillte, the Goddess of Grains, Competition and Commitment of the Celts. However, other grain goddesses can be called as well: From the Greek traditions, Artemis; Changing Woman or Corn Mother of the Native Americans; Chicomecoatl of the Aztecans; Guadalupe of the Mexican tradition; Kornjunfer of Germany; Marcia of Italy; Mawu of Africa; Nisaba of the Chaldean’s; Po Ino Nogar of Cambodia; Saning Sri of Japan; Tuaret of Egypt; Yellow Land Earth Queen of China; or perhaps Zaramama of Peru. The choice is yours, the desire needs to be from your heart.
This is a time of sharing, of caring and of honoring all levels of abundance in your life. Be sure that you bring about a way to share your gifts of abundance. Above all, be sure that you set your altar as a reflection of gratitude and awareness that you have of abundance as a way of letting the Great Mother know of your heart filled with thanks for the life gifts you have.
Items to bring to your celebration are loaves of bread, wheat stalks, berries, nuts, ale or fruitful drinks, tea’s and wines. Flowers for the altar are always appropriate with Sunflower’s, Hollyhocks, Acacia flowers and buds of the citrus trees.
Because this ceremony also marks the entrance into the season of Fall and the ending of the Summer Light, it is appropriate to honor the Solar Gods with Lugh (or Llew) being the head of the team. However, others can be called out as well. Lugh is the Celtic God most often called forth to honor the passage of the Summer and the celebration of the first harvest.
As you prepare for this ceremony, do bring to your mind all that you have accomplished so far this year. Look at how you have reaped your rewards and how these rewards look to you today. Review how your were committed to a year-and-a-day as you celebrated one year ago in August. Honor the gifts of abundance you have received throughout this year. Celebrate the awakening of Recognition within you of your union with Source. Are you ready to simply honor your rewards and commit to new ones? Are you ready to expand your process that you are working on for life? What are you ready to commit to as you celebrate Lughasadh?
Spirit of Purpose
The Magic of Lammas/Lughnassadh
✬ The time before Lammas/Lughasadh spend contemplating what your harvest is at this time. Create symbols of this harvest with wheat stalk, bread or berry pies.
✬ Establish the Spirit of Purpose (i.e. Honoring the power of Lughnassadh, harvest time, the time of commitment, play and games of life.)
✬ Establish date and time to perform your magickal ceremony. (August 1st – 7th )
✬ Gather specific components for your assisting ritual. Choose the color Yellow or Orange for your candles. The essences of Heather, Cypress or frankincense. Summer flowers can grace your altar. Wine and Bread can call forth the Greatest Wisdom of the time and Magick for Lammas.
✬ From the moment you know what you want to honor for this ceremony of commitment, consciously place this energy into the Heart of the Great Mother and the Heart of the Moon where the Greater Purpose and Guidance can be directed for you.
✬ Create an incantation that will be used in your ceremony. It is best done with your own words and written in your own hand.
‒ An example of an incantation: “Blessings of Harvest, Blessings of Light, Blessings of Dark, it gives me Might. Honor to the Sun who gives way to the Moon. I find the rhythm of commitment–I’m in tune.”
‒ Write out the complete ceremony you wish to follow. Write it in your magickal spells book (from beginning to end). Include a space within the ceremony where you can spend time completely honoring all that you have been aware of as your harvest, your intent in your commitment and your power to reflect this to your world.
✬ An hour or so before your ceremony begin by preparing yourself and placing all items on your altar.
‒ Self Purification – (bath/shower, sage or other cleansing incense/elixir)
‒ Cleanse the place where ritual will occur (sage or other incense to clear the area, i.e., elixir for room clearing, symbolic sweeping with a broom)
‒ Set an altar with a Yellow cloth to place your items for symbols of fire (candle with specific color), water (in cup or shell), air (incense or double edged knife) and earth (a stone or pentacle symbol) as well as sacred items that align your heart and mind with the Spirit of Purpose.
‒ Clear your mind of other thoughts and activities. Bring a vision of your purpose into your mind, feel yourself ready to enter the deepest part of your inner being. Center your mind and emotions into the purpose of your magickal alignment. (Very important)
‒ Create a sacred vortex (a conduit for energy to be mixed and aligned with God/Goddess, the Spirit of your Purpose, and the most sacred vibration of the manifested desire). Mind and emotions must maintain the focus of purpose in order for your ritual to provide the final manifest.
‒ Align with the 4-quarters. Sanctify the circle. Call in the Goddess, deities and the Spirit of Purpose in the manner that is most comfortable for you, but always with clarity and deliberate focus on your purpose.
‒ Speak out your incantation for what you desire. Raise energy (feeling and sensing a rise of energy from your lower belly, begin to visualize it forming a ball of light (i.e., for Lughasadh, Sun Light Glow), hold tight your sphincter muscle and let the energy rise to your heart, then with a large exhale, direct the energy ball of light from your heart into the circle, knowing that it forms the spirit of your purpose).
‒ Meditate in the energy you have created. Visualize the manifest complete and utilize the powers of knowing that it is so: Feel it, put a smell to it, a taste, sound, and see it so. When you feel it deep within, end your meditation.
‒ Give gratitude to the Goddess, deities, elements and elementals, the 4-quarters and conduit alignment above and below. Acknowledge that all is within you now.
‒ Close your circle by snuffing out your candle, and walking in the opposite direction that you set your circle to gather all energy unto yourself.
‒ Say Awen (So it is, So Mote it Be, It is complete).
The following may provide you information for setting your circle after you have cleansed the area and set your items on the altar (cleanse them as well).
Draw a circle by standing in the center of your space, face South (the place of the Summer and the entrance to the Fall time of the year. ), allow yourself to draw in white light from the heart of WomanSpirit to your heart. Feel it well up inside like a ball of light, release this light into your right index finger, and circle clock-wise, releasing the light as you complete one full turn around the circle. As your return to the South begin giving honor to the 4-quarters and calling in the elements as well. At your altar light the incense for air, light the candle for fire, and sprinkle water from your cup across your altar to honor the blessings of water, touch your stone and acknowledge the Spirit of Earth that allows you to flow with the essence of love and purpose, Then begin your opening:
Face the south:
WomanSpirit, from my heart to your heart I ask to align with the light of the south
I ask that this door be open and the Archangel Michael and the Goddess Taillte; help me cross this threshold and maintain my integrity, and intent to allow the power of purpose to be my magick that manifests my desire to commit to my dreams and aspirations.
I ask to align with the Spirit of fire and set the fire of greater purpose into full action.
WomanSpirit allow me to become impassioned by the desire of my soul and willing to hold steadfast on the Quest for at least One Year and a Day to honor all that is my harvest and to live empowered by my commitment.
Facing the west:
WomanSpirit, from my heart to your heart I ask to align with the light of the west
I ask that this door be open and the Archangel Gabriel and the Goddess Arianrhod to assist me in crossing this threshold and assist my travels through the astral fluid of Divine Wisdom.
I desire to align with the Spirit of water and the liquid of the sacred states of inner consciousness

Face the North:
WomanSpirit from my heart to yours I ask to align with the light of the north
I ask that this door be open and the Archangel Auriel and the Goddess Eiru to help me cross this threshold through the power of Faith.
I desire to align with the Spirit of the Earth and the power to hold the sacred quality of abundance that is so readily seen by are gardens, trees, and lifestyles of harvesting our talents.
I desire to become one with the grounding forces that will help me manifest all desires before me to let my soul release its power.
Face the east:
WomanSpirit, from my heart to yours I align with the light of the east
WomanSpirit, I ask that this door be open and the Archangel Raphael and the Goddess Diedre to help me cross this threshold and help me hold the vision of, and know the love and power of my committed journey before me.
I ask to align with the Spirit of air and the power to hold the vision of the harvest I desire
WomanSpirit allow me to become one with the vision of my inner temple and the place of my Higher Self that I may flow with this power at all times and reveal our union of abundant qualities of talents and whole expressions.
Then speak out your invocation to the WomanSpirit and the goddess that supports your passageway of Lammas.
Stand with arms raised and legs separated revealing the stance of a five pointed star that honors the Goddess and say:
WomanSpirit. I stand before you and call forth your presence, your love, your light and your sacred purpose into the Spirit of the Place, the Spirit of the Hour and the Spirit of this circle.
Great Goddess, WomanSpirit
May I be blessed by our union and the sacred powers within me.
May I hear Your voice and Your direction that I will honor.
Great Mother, penetrate through this moment and bring forth into my awareness your Divine Energy and commence the power of Lammas
Your loving grace and the blessings of my harvest are felt and known.
Inspiration has begun may wisdom follow.
From your loving heart the sacred voice of my soul responds and I shall begin my celebration and renew my commitment to you.
Create a symbol of Anu (five pointed star within a circle), create a prayer from your heart and say:
Taillte, Grain Mothers, I call to thee, Blessed be the fruitfulness that I now can see.
Taillte, Grain Mothers, Blessed be. I call forth the Goddess to form a Union with Me.
Spirit of Love, Spirit of Commitment, Spirit of Harvest, Spirit Nurturing, enter this place and allow me to see the forever blessings that Earth Mother has placed before me.
WomanSpirit, Great Mother, in humbleness I say, Thank you again for this Glorious Day, the gifts of Your Heart, the blessings to my hearth.
Accept from me the gifts of my altar, know that I recognize your abundance never falters. May I offer to thee a seed, in recognition that your force of rebirth will never cease.
Proceed to the incantation: (yours or the suggested one)
“Blessings of Harvest, Blessings of Light, Blessings of Dark, it gives me Might. Honor to the Sun who gives way to the Moon. I find the rhythm of commitment–I’m in tune.”
Maintain a connection to your purpose, the connection with your commitments, the honoring of your abundance, and the joy of rewards in your time and place now. Spend time in meditation, using Creative Visualization to see, feel and know your power to form Union with the Divine and the purest essence of your soul.
Raise energy (feeling and sensing a rise of energy from your lower belly, begin to visualize it forming a ball of light (i.e. moonlight glow), hold tight your sphincter muscle and let the energy rise to your heart, then with a large exhale, direct the energy ball of light from your heart into the circle, knowing that it forms the spirit of your purpose).
‒ Honor the energy you have created. Give honor for all that you experience and will experience
‒ Give gratitude to the Goddess, deities, the 4-quarters and conduit alignment above and below. Acknowledge that all is within you now.
‒ Close your circle by snuffing out your candle (or blowing it out knowing that the light goes out to the world), and walking in the opposite direction that you set your circle to gather all energy unto yourself.
‒ Say Awen (So it is, So Mote it Be, It is complete).
‒ Enjoy a festival of Light, Foods and Drink, and the Joy of play.
Blessings for A year-and-a-day of Spirit, A year of Heart-Living
Awen – It is so! So it is!
