ritual 2

in days long gone now there was this ritual called Ritual Of Raven that used to be done during the eve of Samhain. The raven was captured and then and fed almost nothing to shorten it loaves and consecrated water. this kind of diet was hold on even up to one week. it was important that the raven did not die during the diet.

in the eve of shamhain the raven was killed with ritual cut and drained it’s blood almost completely away. The blood was then added to a compound of earth, white lime, and sometimes woad as well to make two perfect colours Black and White.
The raven was cut almost whole- leaving only heart intact.

Raven was then stuffed with herbs and then left to altar surrounded with herbs and candles.
On the day of Samhain, the ritual of the raven begins when the moon reaches its zenith.
then the hedgewitch coated him self with white lime and earth and painting his body with black and white compound made himself to look like raven.

then the raven and its heart was burned. It was believed that the spirit of the raven was contained in the heart of the bird and when it was burned the spirit was released. The spirit of the bird was then inhaled and could allow the Hedgewitch to walk through the Veils.

this ritual is not to be used lightly and that for only hedgeworth witches has knowledge to do this i leave parts of the ritual of because of it’s dangers and do not take any responsibility of what happens if you try. good luck.
(for one with knowledge and heart)

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read.

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...
