We're having a little book club talk about a helpful paperback entitled Halloween: What's a Christian To Do? by Steve Russo.It's always difficult for evangelists to be honest and sincere in their condemnation of Wicca. If they're honest (and they usually are), the only thing they can find to criticize in Wicca is the fact that it promotes other deities over the Christian god. And once you've said, "God is jealous," you've shot your wad on Wicca. It's just not an evil force.The devil is different.Our author Mr. Russo quite rightly points…

Crowned in flowers, he sits in a walled garden overflowing with blossoms and vines. His ornately carved throne features bulls’ heads – a nod to his connection to Earthy Taurus.

    There were Healing Temples of Light and Colour at Heliopolis in Egypt, as well as in ancient Greece, China and India. Light creates colour and the Sun produces different wavelengths of light which when they bounce off different objects, create the sensation of light. Therefore, everything we perceive is reflected light.   Many of us love certain colours and abhor others. Understanding  these preferences tells us a great deal about ourselves; physically regarding our current state of health, emotionally regarding our feelings which are sometimes deeply buried, mentally regarding our…

    Sigmund Freud referred to dreaming as a peculiar form of thinking. Dreams have a way of reflecting what is truly going on within your inner landscape. While you may not recall every single one, they still provide a filtering through of self-awareness.   Very vivid dreams tend to imprint on our memories and stay with us for a time but others fade as we get up and go through our morning rituals so it is important to jot down as many details as you can right after you wake up. Especially if you wake from one in the middle of the night!   The key to better dream recall is intention,…

    I’m always hesitant to write private things in my blog, not because I’m unwilling to share myself, but because I generally talk about these things in social media, and I’m hyper-sensitive to inundating followers with too much. Something happened about a month ago to change my mind on that front, which is why I’ve decided to take a different approach to facets of my writing, as well as my shamanic work. Within the same month, a follower on Facebook said,”I didn’t know you were a modern shaman,” and another follower said, “I had no idea…

    Wunjo - joy – We haven’t been visited by Wunjo since August of 2013, which makes it a special occasion. Truly, though, anytime Wunjo appears it’s special. It’s the Rune everyone wants to appear in their readings.  We usually think of joy as a feeling, happiness. On a deeper level, though, joy is more active than that. It’s a state of being, in which we’re engaged in the magick that manifests desires, which is exactly what this stave indicates is available to us with the support of the Multiverse, at this time.  In other words, we’re not just…

    Sigmund Freud referred to dreaming as a peculiar form of thinking. Dreams have a way of reflecting what is truly going on within your inner landscape. While you may not recall every single one, they still provide a filtering through of self-awareness.   Very vivid dreams tend to imprint on our memories and stay with us for a time but others fade as we get up and go through our morning rituals so it is important to jot down as many details as you can right after you wake up. Especially if you wake from one in the middle of the night!   The key to better dream recall is intention,…
