Outside of my dormitory room at the University of Iceland stretched a long and mostly empty expanse of land. Directly across the street, construction crews were erecting new campus buildings, but beyond that, I saw mostly empty ground: the pond called Vatnsmýri, the lawns surrounding the Reykjavik airport’s landing strip. In the distance there was a hill with a shining dome resting at its peak. The dome is called…

    Okay, so the other day I went to town on people who post nude photos of themselves onto social media. Not a great idea.But you know what else isn't a great idea? Overdone dress codes.Where are we living if a teenager can't wear this to a dance?Oh my Bored Gods! Where do we draw the line? Poor kid! (Well, she's not that poor, she bought the dress in Paris.)You know what I think? I think this must have been a Utah high school full of gossiping Mormons. The Mormonism contributes to the dress-shaming, but so does the gossip. Do you think it was a secret that this teenager went with her mom…

    Five days ago, a few cartoons shook out the massacre of 12 French artists and journalists. Here are some of these cartoons (with English translations). Although most seem innocent enough, a few are fairly skanky. But to murder someone because of a few scratches made on paper -- no matter how offensive -- is pure psychosis. IMO.   But that's YAJ* for you, isn't it?  Pure psychosis.

    Building a Pagan temple or employing full time clergy may be easier, and more difficult,  than people think. It appears that if you have a core group of three to five devoted people willing to dedicate at least ten years of their life and to make monthly donations, your dreams of Pagan infrastructure can come true. In this two part series, The Wild Hunt will look at several successful projects in order to see what they have in common. And, we’ll also look at a failed Pagan community center to see what went wrong. Today, in part one, we’ll focus on the larger projects, such as a…

The statue, installed only about one year ago, was removed completely, leaving only a boat-structure that served as a base.

The organization has helped to define the Wiccan and wider Pagan communities, has weathered the Satanic panics and the infamous Helms amendment, which threatened to remove tax-exempt status from “occult” churches, and endured the more recent attacks launched by such luminaries as George W. Bush and Bob Barr. However, in recent months, this venerable collective of…

    On Saturday Mr. J and I went to the Camden County Courthouse in Camden, NJ, to see some of my students compete in a thing called "Mock Trial." Mock Trial is hard to describe, but I'll try: Every year, school teams get a "case" that is fictitious but on a timely topic. The students have to be attorneys and witnesses -- they have roles to learn, but it's not a drama: It's a court case. The competition is held over two weekends in the courthouse and is presided over by real judges who accord points to each team. The team with the most points at the end goes on to a state-level competition.I went…

  • Two Powerful Ways to Release Limiting Beliefs That Hinder Your Progress

    Stella Seaspirit
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:11 am
    When you decide to transform something, the most challenging part is releasing old conditioning and thought patterns that no longer serve who you are becoming. They hinder your progress with echoes of, “Oh, you shouldn’t do that” or “That’s not how I raised you” or “Our family isn’t that lucky”.   These thoughts appear at the first sign of making deliberate change and keep bouncing you back from the present moment (where all your power is) so you continue to live from the past. This in turn affects the decisions you make and the quality of your experiences now.  …

    For the week 25 January 2015 Still under the carefully placed dominoes of half-month rune Perthro, Hagalaz sheds some insight on what to expect once they fall. This week, we are faced with the reality of radical change. Hagalaz often portends a blunt shift that is unexpected. The presence of Perthro could soften that transition a bit, in that its emphasis on orlog (primal law) hints that through wyrd (our choices), we are the ones who set up the circumstances for change to happen. Ultimately, we set up the dominoes. We don’t have total control over how they will fall, though given…

    My weekly gratitude post, in the Celebrate the Small Things [ongoing] Blog Hop. I’m thankful to be getting over the plague that has gripped our household for two weeks. Now where was I? I’m grateful for being the closest to pain-free as I’ve been in about a year-and-a-half. Amazing! I’m thankful for a fabulous start to the Two-Year Shamanic Intensive. I’m thankful for creativity coming in ways that I can grab, hold on to, manifest, and let go. I’m grateful for the strange new paths that open up when I stop clinging to old ones that didn’t work. What…

  • Two Powerful Ways to Release Limiting Beliefs That Hinder Your Progress

    Stella Seaspirit
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:11 am
    When you decide to transform something, the most challenging part is releasing old conditioning and thought patterns that no longer serve who you are becoming. They hinder your progress with echoes of, “Oh, you shouldn’t do that” or “That’s not how I raised you” or “Our family isn’t that lucky”.   These thoughts appear at the first sign of making deliberate change and keep bouncing you back from the present moment (where all your power is) so you continue to live from the past. This in turn affects the decisions you make and the quality of your experiences now.  …
  • Describing My Personal Spiritual Path

    A question I am often asked by readers is, “how to put your thoughts into words about what you believe in when it comes to explaining your spiritual path to others?” Particularly if you are eclectic in nature and don’t follow one definitive creed that others can easily recognise.   Obviously I won’t be able to cover my entire worldview in this blog post but it is my intention that by sharing what I feel resonates at my core may help you to identify what feels good for you. Everything in this post is based on my personal understanding. Don’t accept anything as true for you just…
  • How to Overcome a Creative Block

    Have you felt excited and motivated by the prospects your message would bring and still be generating lots of ideas but at the same time felt blocked in taking action to further your life’s work?   There is even a bit of a “I don’t want to do this” sense of resistance ~ not because it’s something you don’t enjoy but because of an underlying barely detectable fear of falling short and somehow not succeeding in what it is you set out to accomplish.   You may already have a regular daily practise to connect with your interdimensional support team for receiving guidance,…
