Letters Of Fire


and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning with it ... Vayikra 6:2
וְאֵשׁ הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, תּוּקַד בּוֹ

On the altar (mizbeach), according to the Temple Institute:

The exact location of the mizbeach has important halachic, spiritual and historical significance. According to tradition, Adam, the first man, was created from earth taken from this spot. Adam later built his altar here; after the flood, Noah built an altar on this same spot, and this was the location of the binding of Isaac.

The mizbeach must stand upon earth, and is referred to as the "earthen Mizbeach." This altar may not stand over tunnels or elevated arches as do the other floors of the Temple Mount and the Mikdash. The mizbeach was whitewashed twice a year, on Passover Eve and on Sukkot eve. It was cleaned every Shabbat eve.

This shabbat eve, I completed the ritual sabbat oil, Beltane Fire, an offering of WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah Lleucu.

The sabbat Beltane, sometimes called Cetsamhain (meaning "opposite Samhain"), is the third of four Celtic sacred fire festivals (the moon sabbats of Celtic Witchcraft, a nature-based spirituality standing upon the earth). During both Beltane and Samhain, the two major sabbats, the veil between the worlds is thinnest, making these favorable times for powerful magic, contact with beings of the Otherworld and pathworking.

The word beltane means "brilliant fire". Bonfires of joy mark this fire festival, heralding the height of spring, the flowering of life, and the arrival of summer in its full glory. Celtic folklore teaches that if one bathes in the morning dew of Beltane, one's beauty flourishes throughout the whole year. More on wholeness:

The total gematria for the Hebrew phrase above is:

307 + 62 + 510 + 8 = 887

The digit sum is 23. The value twenty-three pertains to the entire array of the 22 known letters of the Hebrew aleph-beit, plus the missing letter as taught in the mystical folklore of Jewish Kabbalah.

Thus, my ritual oil Beltane Fire contains the essence of the 22 known Hebrew letters and the essence of the missing letter as well.

Potent magic is burning in this little bottle!

Two Turtledoves In Action


two turtledoves ... Vayikra 5:11
לִשְׁתֵּי תֹרִים

The Hebrew word for turtledoves, namely תרים, also means to raise, to elevate, to lift up, to carry out, and to do. In other words, 'turtledoves' refers to doing an act which elevates, raises and lifts up. The offering is an act of elevation.

In that spirit and in the spirit of the holy days, are 'two turtledoves' - the first two ritual treasures offered at WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah Lleucu - being offered in advance of the shoppe's official opening March 29.

The 'two turtledoves' are two vials of Passover Protection Ritual Oil. Neither vial will be sold for monetary profit. Rather, each vial is priced at cost only, in honor of my oldest son's birthday and in honor of the holy days, namely Purim, Ostara and Passover. Each vial will come in a black organza sachet pouch, with a black ribbon drawstring closure.

May whomever acquires these two turtledoves be blessed and may WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah Lleucu also be blessed through this elevation offering.

So mote it be!

The two turtledoves (two vials of Passover Protection Ritual Oil) will be listed for acquisition at WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah Lleucu following shabbat, March 21.

Yad Ramah, More Than An Idea


Yad Ramah, More Than An Idea - The Witch's Ritual Of 'Drawing Down The Moon' In Correspondence To Mystical Judaism's 'Drawing Down Of Divine Creativity'.

witnessed excellently, pure within and without,
a crown of gold round about, it made
... Shemot 37:2
וַיְצַפֵּהוּ זָהָב טָהוֹר, מִבַּיִת וּמִחוּץ; וַיַּעַשׂ לוֹ זֵר זָהָב, סָבִיב
[There are 10 Hebrew words in this phrase.]

even two rings on the one side of it ... Shemot 37:3
וּשְׁתֵּי טַבָּעֹת, עַל-צַלְעוֹ הָאֶחָת
[There are 4 Hebrew words in this phrase.]

Two dreams of the witch, Liorah Lleucu HaMasovevet (two rings dreamt, on one side of consiousness):

2. Black Gold (dream Friday night, shabbat) - witness pure excellence זָהָב טָהוֹר

1. Countenance Of Radiant Gold, Robe of Light (dream Thursday night) - crown of gold זֵר זָהָב

Gematriot to the two 'more' hidden rings (two rings found while awake on the 'other side' of consciousness):

The total gematria of the two Hebrew phrases above is 1750 + 1907 = 3657, with a digit sum of 21, one letter short of the full array of 22 Hebrew 'creation letters'.

The first Hebrew phrase contains the code לו, symbolic of the 36 lamedvav tzadikim (spiritual masters) who support the world and of the 'missing 22nd letter' of the complete array, namely tzaddi (צ). Round about the two letters (לו) which themselves represent the one letter tzaddi (צ) which completes the 22-letter array, the remaining letters together symbolize the idea coded as the '37th tzaddi', and further represent the final crowning step into 'messianic-redemptive consciousness'. The remaining letters surrounding the letters לו have a total gematria of 1714 + 1907 = 3621, with a digit sum of 12, the number of the diagonal boundaries of the known Universe.

Thus, taken together we can see that the single letter tzaddi corresponds to the principle of Unity. The lamedvav tzadikkim represent - in principle - the idea of drawing Divine Creativity 'down' into the world of multiplicity. Yet, as we see through the phrases above, it is the letters which surround which actually draw Divine Creativity 'down' into the entire multiplicity of the known Universe, making it into more than an idea.

The 14 Hebrew words of the two phrases together spell יד, meaning 'hand'. There are three hands associated with this post - the one pouring out Black Gold (dream #1), the one who received it (dream #2), and the one who writes of it now.

Cackle, cackle, laughs the witch who draws down the moon.

There Is No Plague Among Them

Ki Tisa

there is no plague among them ... Shemot 30:12
וְלֹא-יִהְיֶה בָהֶם נֶגֶף

Last night I dreamt a complicated and complex dream which is relevant to this week's upcoming parsha.

I stood in the top row of rows of prehistoric rows (like bleachers), out of the way of a coming stampede of ancient prehistoric mystical horses of great destructive power. The row where I stood was safely out of the path of the destructive ('wildly focused') horses, but the lower rows were not. The rows were crammed with people trying to escape the fate of being run over by the horses, which would soon arrive.

Across and blocking the track like a wall, immediately after yet joined to the end of the ancient rows, was a large dam-like gate (reminds me of the island gate to the village in the King Kong movie). These horses were giants like king kong. They would have to break through the gate to move on down the track into 'the world of known history', becoming transformed in the move from the 'ancient prehistoric mystical world' into the 'world of known history'.

Waiting in safety for the coming stampede of destructive horses, I noticed in the floor of the running track (below and in front of me) a crack break open. From the abyss beneath the surface of the crack, onto the track, a plague of whitish larvae-like forms [1] began to creep up. They spread toward the rows, spotting in a few places on the first fews rows. Then the horses came around the ancient bend in the track, trampling the first few rows and destroying everything in their path - including the plague (all of it), the crack itself (which was no more), and the gate (which had been broken open into) the 'world of history'. The gate was open, the path was clear, and the way was sealed against harm and hindrance.

When the horses moved through,
plague, harm and hindrance destroyed,
eight and twenty-two
through my waking mind, the words deployed.

Interestingly, yesterday I 'cracked the polish' on one of my fingernails unpacking the new black 3-drawer file cabinet I had purchased for my etsy shoppe WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah Lleucu. The fingernail itself (near where I am) was not cracked, only a protective coat of nail acrylic polish (separate from me) was cracked. The acrylic polish material can easily be fixed (like my shipping policies, which were troubling me until I changed them this morning since this dream).

Importantly, there is no plague among them - namely, there is no plague among the products which will be offered at WITCHCRAFTS, even the shipping policies are under the guidance of the Black Goddess. The entire array of the twenty-two Hebrew letters of creation have been uttered. The Black Goddess has decreed [2] it, and Her destructive horses have made it so.

Reversing the shoresh נגף (strike a blow, plague, injure, hinder) -

She closed the way and struck a blow
to the blow struck to close the way.
