Witches join forces to cast a mass spell to help Haiti.
Posted 18 January 2010
Witches across the world joined forces to cast a global spell to help the people of Haiti.
Rev Terry Power, High Priest of the Correllian Nativist Tradition of Wicca, issued a call to all witches to join him in performing a ritual for Haiti at 17:00 on Saturday, 16 January.1
Power said ‘this ritual is designed to cascade around the planet... the energy is directed and released to add itself to the growing wave of love, comfort and healing around the world’.
According to the official Correllian website the tradition was founded by a circus fortune teller called Orpeis Caroline High Correll in 1879. It is said to combine elements of Native American teaching, Spiritualism and later Aradian Witchcraft.
For the ritual, witches were instructed to cast a magic circle, invoking the God and Goddess, before repeating the words ‘Great Mother Goddess, You who care for all souls; our brothers and sisters in Haiti are suffering untold misery and despair! We call upon you and pray: send them Your love, send them Your healing, send them Your comfort’.
Voodoo practitioners in Benin, regarded as the birthplace of West African Voodoo (or Vodun), have also come together to show their support. The Queen of Allada, one of the largest kingdoms in Benin, told reporters on Thursday that ‘a purification ceremony is planned for Haiti’. However, Queen Djehami believes the disaster may have been the result of the Haitians’ failure to carry out sacrifices to appease angry spirits.2
After the ritual Power reported that ‘I sensed, rather than saw, the lines of connection that exist between all of creation. I saw the building wave of Love and comfort moving across the globe and knew we were making a difference’.3
