    Provoking Thoughts for Parents

    Growing Where They are Planted An important part of connecting with our kids when it comes to spiritual matters is to find things that interest them. This is a topic we will explore for a couple of issues but first we all need to do some extra footwork. It is amazing how many parents assume they know what their kids are thinking but yet they never ask. We would be surprised at some of the answers we get when we ask our kids their thoughts, not only on spiritual matters but also on life issues themselves. Usually kids have very spiritual insight into life without relating to it as such.…

    A Children’s Tale: Choices

    On a long hot summer day, Nadia and her fellow young sea nymphs swam and played in the ocean. Then they decided to go into the cove and tease the human children from the village. This is something they did regularly. See the sea nymphs were magickal creatures that had been around long before humans and felt superior to them. As they approached the cove, they heard the familiar laughing and splashing of the same children that were usually in the cove. They pulled the same tricks they pulled most days. They tugged on their legs under the water. They pulled their hair. They took turns doing the various things…

    Provoking Thoughts

    So You Call Yourself an Elder? For any of us who have found this path on our own, we know how hard it can be to find someone to work with us in learning our craft. In some ways it can feel like the impossible task to find a qualified person in the community that teaches or mentors. I was recently speaking with a fellow Wiccan, with whom I am currently mentoring, and she told me a story that really bothered me. We have spent many nights talking about how hard it is to find someone to work with who is trustworthy and not psychotic. She was talking about a…

    Tarot: Self Help, Self Knowledge or Divination Tool?

    Tarot: Self Help, Self Knowledge or Divination Tool? According to some different Tarot schools, this can be understood as an instrument of self-help, self-knowledge or divination. It’s not rare to find those who defend it from one perspective, while others see or feel opposing views. For me, this is not relevant, maybe not even correct. I consider Tarot all these. Which must be clear in the reader’s and querent’s minds as they use it in that moment and for their own personal reasons. A Code of Ethics must guide the individual activity of Tarot reading. As a self-help tool, the reader uses Tarot for her/himself in order to go inside,…

    Spiritual Healing

    I am a magician of over 30 years of experience with removing curses, disharmonies and other spiritual problems. I plan to touch upon many subjects in this column but they will all relate to spiritual problems and upsets. I feel these problems are running rampant while everyone is saying if you think positive bad things will go away. People block themselves and the energies block them so they have these problems. It is past the point where they can think positively. The only way to help with these problems is working upon your inner self and knowing yourself. You can overcome any outside forces and be a success in what…

    Spirits In The Material World: Native Americans Today

    The Silence of Indigenous Peoples Pagan Pages has been seeking to include a column dealing with Native Americans for some time. There are a few likely reasons it has taken some time to find an author willing to share appropriate information with the readership. In this first piece of what will be a monthly column devoted to understanding the indigenous peoples of the Americas, I wanted to address why Indian people often fall silent in a venue such as this. I also want to tell you a little bit about myself. I was not born on a reservation. I was not raised by wolves. My first and most life-altering spiritual…

    Witch Tips

    Quick & easy hints to get you through your busy day The Poor Pagan’s Guide to Altar Care Did you hear the one about the girl with the wooden altar? Sad but true–and an altar cloth can only cover just most signs of neglect and abuse, not all. To keep your fellow covenors from snickering behind your back, follow these simple rules & suggestions: Avoid excess. Don’t stash your altar up in the attic or downstairs in the fruit cellar when your Presbyterian Aunt Petunia comes visiting–extreme temperatures, dryness or humidity can damage wooden furniture. And watch what you toss over it, too, since plastic or rubber mats can stain…
