    Today

    So blue doth the sky so shine, unbroken in it’s glory. So gently doth the breeze blow, to tell it’s story. So sweetly doth the birds sing each with a lovely melody. So peaceful am I this day, basking in the Goddess’ glory.       *** author bio: Copyright 2006 by Dawning Grace.

    Reading With Katrina

    Memoirs of a Shape-Shifter Author: Thomas Kaplan-Maxfield Kepler Press 2004 ISBN: 0971377030 I absolutely loved this book! It is one I will read over and over again and one that I would definately recommend to any woman that needs to look inside herself to find the hidden strength that is within her. I love how this books takes you all over the place, especially ancient Ireland! I believe that there is alot in this book that Nikki experiences that a multitude of women can relate to today. I was so drawn into this story as it unfolded at times, losing literally hours in my day. I didn’t feel as though…

    Consult Your Inner Psychic: How To Use Intuitive Guidance To Make Your Life Work Better Author: Carole Lynne Red Wheel/Weiser 2005 Book and CD ISBN: 1578633435 I liked this book and cd duo for several reasons. I don’t think that even those of us who do have the gift of psychic ability take the time to really listen and learn, to master out gifts. Carole Lynne in this book and cd duo walks you through doing just that. She teaches you how to listen to your gut, to recognize and respond accordingly to that feeling. I believe that someone who seriously wishes to learn about their inner psychic, or to…

    Seeing the Dead, Talking With Spirits: Shamanic Healing Through Contact With The Spirit World Author: Alexandra Leclere Destiny Books, 2005 ISBN: 1594770832 Initially, I felt that this book was a ‘learn to’ book. I soon discovered that was not the case. Instead, I learned that it is a first person account of Alexandra Leclere, a tv producer. After having an alternative healing session, she discovered that she had ‘abilities.’ She began to research what she was experiencing, asking for answers from Shamans and other healers and through all this, she learned of her gift, the ability to see spirits. There were short stories in this book which I found almost…

    Exloring Auras: Cleansing and Strengthening Your Energy Field Author: Susan G. Shumsky New Page Books 2006 Never, I repeat, never have I run across a book so ‘right on’, so informative, down to every little detail about exploring auras! I expected this to be the traditional ‘new age’ book that keeps being pumped out on the shelf and wow, was I wrong. Step by step, detail by detail and you find that you are forming questions in your head and before you get to write them down, you read a bit further and they are answered for you! Incredible! Absolutely incredible! I will be keeping this book on my shelf…

    The Way of Four Spellbook Author: Deborah Lipp Llewellyn Publications 2006 While I didn’t read the initial book by Deborah Lipp, The Way of Four, I don’t know that I would have purchased this book when it came out. To me, this was just another booked, pumped out by yet another Pagan author that is trying to gain recognition. Don’t get me wrong, she offers up spells, ideas for assisting you in rituals and spell casting, circling, etc. but to me, it was no different than any of the other 9 million ‘how to’ Pagan books that there are out there. Sorry, this one just didn’t do it for me.…

    X-Witch

    I conducted a small survey this week on several e-lists as to what readers believed it was that made Christianity and Paganism so averse to one another. I received a number of responses (thanks!) which ranged from intellectual issues, spiritual issues, historical issues. But the bottom line to all responses was a four letter word. The F word. Fear. Pagans fear Christians will persecute them–laugh at them at best and burn them up again at worse. And, we must give it to the Pagans; these fears are not baseless! Remember that highly enlightened time known as ‘The Inquisition’? Or how about that charming era called The Burning Times? The Pagan…

    Winds of the Sand

    Well, here it is April, this article I’ve been keeping somewhat of a diary to give an insight in what it’s like here. Lately, we’re seeing the end of the spring rains; it will rain until the end of April. Our biggest need currently is actually candles of various colors I need red and black specifically of dire need as I’m not the only Morrighan worker in this group. Would also like more altar tools as all our members here are setting up there altars from scratch. Our current projects include prepping for Beltane to include a May Pole and bonfire. We are preparing to have a Pagan Awareness day…

    The Warrior Goddess

    Introduction to the Warrior Today it seems to be common for us to believe that women of history stayed at home. That they were used and abused and generally had no power in the world of history. We are taught that only today do we have the knowledge and enlightenment to allow women to be equals with men. However, this very thought, the fact that we must constantly talk about men and women being equal, means that we do not have true equality just yet. True equality would mean we do not even think about it; it wouldn’t even be an issue. For example, if you had Charmin toilet paper…
