Storms are amazing. Here in California we are experiencing some weird weather…snow in the elevations, and rain, lightening, and high winds down in the Valley a bit. This type of weather is perfect for bringing natural cleansing and energy into your magick and home. Wind and rain are amazing cleansers. I’ve been known to stand in the midddle of the yard in a big wind storm and accpet the wind into my body, sweeping out the negative and leaving me feeling refreshed and with room to fill my thoughts, my soul, my energy with positivity and balance. Rain will do … Continue reading Magick in the Air
Brigid has lit the way for us to begin the lighted season of our year. What a wonderful time this will. As we say goodbye to Herne for the moment, and allow him the rest he so deserves, and the candles are lit to guide the light back into the world, we are all getting ready to let go of the shadows and step into the light. If you walk a pagan/Wiccan path then today is the day to bless your candles for the year. The time to give them the energy of the beginning of the light time and … Continue reading Blessed Imbolc….Blessed Candlemas
Often times we are told how we should live, where we should work, what is right for us, without anyone checking in on what it is we want. We allow others to create the reality that we live in, with little or no input from us. This is often the case with those who follow a “different” path in religion or beliefs. It is difficult when one does not “conform” to the holidays or the calendars of the societal norm. As we approach the season of Yule, I am often reminded of how intolerant and selfish others are. They focus … Continue reading Create Your Own Reality…and then live it
Yes, that’s right, I have finally kicked the nasty creep and crud. That means we should be getting back to regularly scheduled blog posts and some interesting information. Today I wanted to discuss altars. What an altar is, what is can be used for and why you might have one, no matter your beliefs. Merriam-Webster.com defines an altar as: 1: a usually raised structure or place on which sacrifices are offered or incense is burned in worship —often used figuratively to describe a thing given great or undue precedence or value especially at the cost of something else sacrificed his … Continue reading I’m Better!
Today I wanted to share a little more about some of the things I do on a daily basis (or as close as possible) regarding my beliefs and practices. However, I realized that before I delved into that perhaps a discussion and personal breakdown of the concepts out there was in order. Often the three words above are used synonymously. While most of us who live the life understand those outside don’t know the difference, there are those who become highly indignant or offended when someone refers to them as one of the others. While I am not one of … Continue reading Pagan, Wiccan or Witch???
It’s that time again, where people feel the need to reinvent themselves based on the passing of the year. Goals are different from resolutions. And with those goals we must create intent. As we all look forward and decide what it is we need to be doing and what we’re changing in the month of January and the year of 2017 I have to stop and wonder why? What is it that makes us think simply by saying I am going to be a better person, or I’m going to lose 20 pounds, I’m going to clean the house … Continue reading Goals and Intentions
