Spiritual Act

We spend the beginning of the Sacred month of Hestia, 13 days in total, in daily meditation for a few minutes in the spiritual practice of concentrating upon a spiritual month and it’s mystery.

Scripture [1]

Title 1
The Holy Mythos
Chapter 5, Verse 35

35. Then for twelve nights the star returned to the sky; and on the thirteenth night it did not return. And this was a sign of things that were to come.

The elemental green of the sacred season of Autumn. Decaying and dying to sprout again. Life time after life time, until our souls are perfected enough to rejoin Mother God. The lesson of Madria Thema.

~~~

For my predecessors in the Deanic Faith this month was also named Samhain (pronounced Sa-Win or Sow-in).

ArchMatrona Ghrian has mentioned that another pronunciation for Samhain (usually pronounced Sow-en) is also Shah-vin. And I have found this here: (http://clubs.ncsu.edu/spm/FAQ/11pronounce.html).

It is also the Irish for November.

Samhain: (meaning Summer’s End. For the Celts, summer ended in October.)
For those devotees of Dea residing in the British Isles, our clocks have fallen back 1 hour, leaving Summer Time behind us on the last Saturday of October.

This is the last month in the sacred season of Autumn. Because of the dark evenings and increasingly cold weather, I spend time reflecting upon and praying to Madria Thema. How can I add order and harmony to my blessed sacred hestia, relationships and life? So I tidy and sort items for donation to charity shops, clean and delight in small daily achievements. I smile at and acknowledge strangers in the street.

I find seasonal recipes with either apples or pomegranates or green coloured foods.

Beans are a symbol of being manifest on Dea’s created earth, whom we Deanists respect as our sister.

On Pomedi or Apple (or Pomegranate) Day. (Thursday). The Day of Madria Thema, we say:
O, Madria Thame, Jana of Order, Harmony and Justice, be with us.
May the Pure Stream of your Virtues flow within me, in this world and in all the worlds to come.
