Before the Rose
explains why one woman can have such a tragic life. This story is set in the early years before the rose and tells the story of Coralina, who ran away with the miller’s son, and her little sister Mary.

They say the sins of the fathers fall on the sons, but what of the sins of the mothers
Mary always manages to get her own way. As a child, she is stubborn, determined, acts without thinking, and never considers the consequences of her actions.

The old Mother tries to explain to her that what she says and does will come back to her three times over, good or bad. When she angers her common sense and control disappear, and then she worries about the old Mothers words.

When Mary helps her older sister Coralina to run away with the miller’s son, she is blamed for not telling her father. Johnny her childhood sweetheart has a calming influence on her, and later they marry and have a child, a beloved daughter Rosa.

When Rosa is fourteen, her sweetheart Eddie, carves a piece of wood into the shape of a rose and gives it to Rosa as a token of his love. Later they marry at the Tinkers Heart, near Cairndow on the shores of Loch Fyne, and it’s a time of celebration for all.

Mary, a natural witch, practices healing, and casts simple, personal spells, but she often forgets the power of her words, her deeds, and her actions. She utters a vile curse, which haunts a family to this day, but it haunted Mary too, and her thoughtlessness repays her when she least expects it, in tragic and heartbreaking ways.

This fascinating romantic suspense, set in and around Glasgow and Ayrshire will keep you hooked to the very end and leave you wanting more. This is a charming mysterious love story.

Best Names and Numerology, another new book from Soraya

Dont give a name, give a meaningful name

Best Names and Numerology

Don’t give your child a name…
………..Give a meaningful name.

Some say it’s all in the name, but it’s all in the numbers too…

Every sound resonates to a specific vibration which creates an impression, pleasant or otherwise.

By using numerology we can decipher these vibrations and choose an appropriate name for ourselves, our children, or for any given time of the year.

We can choose the best name for a baby, the best nickname, the best day for a job interview, for a wedding, or a christening by using numerology.
This knowledge will help you to find the positive and negative influences, and to look at making changes where they may be necessary.

How you spell a name matters, change the spelling and you change the vibration.

This book contains easy to understand instructions, and almost four thousand  boys and girls names showing the influences and characteristics that their names are bestowed with.

A review of The Wooden Rose from a reader in Houston Texas

on February 10, 2016
“The Wooden Rose” By Soraya takes us on a trip from almost 100 years ago to present time, through the lives of one family of Travelers aka Gypsies. It begins with such a happy beautiful love between Rose and Eddie that grew over the years of childhood to adulthood,only to end tragically. Then it takes us to present day with Alina and JJ and a horribly failed marriage. Alina failed to follow her instincts and was blinded by the pretty words and actions of a cheating, lying man.After the death of her parents,she finalizes see his true colors. Alina decides to visit a psychic fair to have a Tarot reading, gets mistaken for someone else and is pulled into the fair. Knowing that she used to read for friends before, she decides to take a chance and read them for others and finds she has a knack for it. She’s offered a chance to travel with the fair and she takes it, leaving behind the husband and the life she so desperately needs to escape. This sets her on a journey that leads her to true friends, true love, and her true life path.
I really enjoyed this story a lot. I did struggle with understanding the language of the Travelers in the beginning, but was able to figure it out and enjoy the beauty of it. I love how Soraya brought in touches of the metaphysical, tarot, numerology, runes, dowsing, etc. and gave brief but understandable explanations. These things are woven in a way the seems natural to telling the story.
If you have an interest in things metaphysical then this would be a nice read for you. It also has a nice mystery that is solved through the use of normal channels and tarot, etc. With quite a few splashes of love thrown in and to round it out.

How to find your Answer

From time to time in our lives we meet difficult situations or events. More often than not we are unable or unsure of how to deal with them.
Some of us turn to Tarot or Runes if we have them and know how to use them. There are other disciplines that can be consulted too like the I Ching or Astrology. We can’t all tell the future though, and not everyone understands Tarot or Runes.
For instance, if you had a problem and had access to a deck of Tarot cards, would you know what any particular card meant if you drew one for guidance. Perhaps not, so what action do you take, where do you get guidance when you need it?
Tarot, Runes and all the other disciplines work by chance, the chance that you will pick one card over another or when using Runes, one stone instead of another. This book works on the same chance principle.
In the following pages are 365 predictions that I have put together using various disciplines. All you have to do is focus your mind on the situation that concerns you.
If you are using a digital version simply scroll through the chapter headings and select one at random or select an chapter number and there you will find your answer.
If you are using a paper version of the book, keep the book closed while you think of your question and then open at a random page or think of a page number to find your answer.
I hope that you will find guidance that will help you to deal with your challenge.
Blessings Soraya

Reviews of The Wooden Rose
This was a lovely read: refreshingly different. The author leads us through a tragedy in a traditional Romany community through to its long reaching repercussions in today’s modern world. You reluctantly leave the ancient traditions of the charming rural community only to be rewarded by the twists and turns faced by our modern heroine. The characters are beautifully observed and the sentiments within are strong but never over done. I couldn’t put it down and look forward to reading more of this author’s work. From Brenda Frew

I don’t know how many of you saw the book called the wooden rose written and advertised by, Soraya on the pagan market. But I am half way through the book and although different circumstances I feel like I am reading my own emotional journey. The book is not only moving but anyone beginning the tarot I really recommend this book. Has anyone else ever thought as they began too read I have been sent this book for a reason? From Cas Smith‎

I have read the book a couple of months back Cas and it so well written, Soraya is an awesome writer, i could not put the book down until I finished it so I read it in a day, and like yourself i found so many coincidences with my own life’s journey and absolutely YES, i did think i had been sent the book for a reason and also a connection with Soraya too..Cant wait for the follow up. From Roz Johnston

Soraya’s latest book, The Wooden Rose, is absolutely FABULOUS. I am not giving anything away but it is so full of descriptive detail that the reader gets totally lost in it.

Self Dedication Rite

Self Dedication Rite
Choose a secret magickal name, choose wisely and take some time before finally committing to it. Here are some things to ponder on –
Would you choose the name of a warrior ? – you may have many battles to fight!
Would you choose the name of someone who had a tragic life? – enough said
When I choose mine I believed that I had made it up then one day quite by chance I found it written – first I was dumfounded – then I was delighted – my name chose me. Once you have chosen yours you can decide where and when you will perform your rite.

Gather together all the things that you will need
Tall Candles & holders, small T lite candles, matches, salt, water, an athame or wand, small dishes anointing oil that you can make yourself. Cast your circle then sit or kneel comfortably in front of your table or altar. Close your eyes and as you breath in, picture positive white light energy filling your body. As you breath out, breath away all negative energy. After some minutes, you will feel all tension flowing away from your mind and body. Allow pure light energy to flow into and through your entire body filling your sacred space, filling your room. When you are completely relaxed stand up and move quietly to the east quarter of your room.
“Lady you have been know by many, I worship and adore you and invite you to join me in body and spirit. Be with me and guide me in the true ways”.
Draw a pentacle in the air above you and one below you and say
“You are here and I thank you for the gifts that you have given and I know that you only help those who help them selves.

Then  say
“By candle light I make my vow, the Olde Ways fore ‘er from now.
I name myself ***** in the witches’ way, this I be know as from this day
It is my will for all to see, let it harm none. So mote it be”
“Before the God and Goddess, from this moment on I (your name), will be known as (your craft name), within the circle of the wise to symbolise my rebirth.
I promise to honour the God and the Goddess in all areas of my life.
I will work to understand their great mysteries
I will work to understand the mystery of myself.
I will share my knowledge with those who seek my help
I will protect and guard the Old Ways from those who would scorn them.
I will defend the God and Goddess
I will work in harmony with the Earth
I will honour Plant, Animal, Spirit, and Man.
I will embrace the elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth
I will honour and respect my brothers and sisters within or out with the Craft.
What I send forth will return thrice over so I send it forth with light and love.
So mote it be”.
Give thanks to the elements and close your circle

Break a Curse Spell

Break a Curse
Decorate your altar with object that you can break, cups saucers or any other item except a mirror. Cast your circle then stand or sit in front of your altar, recite this verse whilst you are breaking each dish three times.
I break the curse that came to me
That I be well for all to see
I send it back from whence it came
The bidder takes back all the pain
I am free from any outfall
Free to live and love to all
The three fold rule the Goddess gave
For her children them to save
We bide this rule and do no one harmed
The curse returned and sender warned
Be mindful of what ere you send
It will come back and you will bend.
And it harm none so mote it be
