The "Power of Three" Giveaway! ****UPDATED*****

The Power of Three? If you are Wiccan, or of any of many pagan paths, you know about the power of three. First and foremost, for me, is the beloved Triple Goddess: Maiden, Mother, Crone, symbolized by the phases of the moon. The Threefold Law of Return is part of my practice and that of many others. This is simply a basic, common sense approach to living: that what you send out will return to you threefold, be it positive actions, or negative actions. Also, there is the belief in Birth, Death, Rebirth. In spell casting I often close my spell with the words, "by the power of 3 times 3, this spell is done, so mote it be". I found that phrase in Ellen Dugan's books when I first started practicing Wicca, and have used it for a long time.

The Triquetra is a symbol found in some form or other in different religions, but is most commonly found in Celtic references, especially Celtic pagan use. It usually symbolizes the Triple Goddess, but has been used with other meanings, depending on the path. You will see many pagans wearing this symbol as jewelry, tattoos, on clothing, etc.

Okay, kids, the brief lesson is over for now. Onto the Giveaway!! I am thrilled to be blogging and as of this moment 67 people have signed onto follow me, and I am so gosh-darned pleased about that!! I had found some books and journals at Barnes and Noble at super bargain prices, and thought I would like to give my followers a gift. But not just one follower. I have three sets of gifts to give to 3 followers. And I will announce the winners on 3/3, that is March 3rd. Therefore, the Power of Three is very active here at Wiccan Writes.

Simple Simple Simple to win:  Be a follower, sign onto follow, and leave a comment that you are interested in receiving one of the following:

First Gift SetAnimal Speak Pocket Guide, by Ted Andrews, perfect to carry with you for a quick reference for your animal encounters and what they might it a messenger, a symbol, or something else. A journal to write down encounters you have, be they in the physical realm or the dream realm, and finally a lovely little scrumptious offering from Godiva, because Robin Larkspur loves loves loves chocolate.

Second Gift Set: For you dreamers out there, here is The Illustrated Dream Dictionary by Russell Grant, illustrated by Vicky Emptage. This is a guide to help you decode your dreams and find the hidden meanings behind all sorts of dreams. You have to have a journal to record your dreams, too. And, of course the Godiva chocolate gift, because, you know, the chocolate loving thing.

Third Gift Set: Here are two books by Janet Blackwell for your reading enjoyment. Secondhand Spirits & A Cast-Off Coven.   These are books one and two in the story of a witch in San Francisco. There is witchcraft, murder and mayhem...and a talking pig (of course, he's not really a pig, is he?) A  very fun read. Naturally, this gift set includes the aforementioned Godiva chocolate.

I am excited and looking forward to this giveaway and hope you are too. Remember, I will choose three winners on March 3rd. The winners will have 3 days to respond; I will choose another winner in case I do not receive a response from the first winners.  Be sure to leave me an email address if you do not have a blog with contact info.

The Power of Three Giveaway

*****UPDATED*****   Hi! I have switched the Godiva chocolate gift from the little bags of Dark Chocolate Almonds to the Godiva Dark Chocolate with Almonds Bars. This will be so much easier to mail with the books and journals...because Goddess Forbid, one does not want to crush one's nuts, er, um. almonds in the mail!!***********

The New Updated Godiva Chocolate Bar for the GIveaway.
P.S. Gosh, what am I going to do with those three other Godiva chocolate gifts??

Blessings from Robin.

I also think a little education in our Wiccan posts now and then are a great idea and I am so glad that you believe in it.
