    Let’s Spell it Out

    Valley of the Yews November 22nd Ydalir (yew-dale) is a Norse holiday is under the ruler-ship of the god Ullr (pronounced “ool”).  Also known as the “The Magnificent”, the “bow God” and sometimes the “Death God”; he is the god of skiing, archery, hunting, sports, combat, contests, sky, fertility, magick, sea, beauty and enchantment.  He was thrown out of Asgard by Odhinn because the All-Father was jealous.  His parentage differs on whom you ask, but he is said to be the brother of Ullin, son of Sif and the Step-son of Thor.  He is responsible for justice and oaths were sworn on his ring, called the “ring of Ull”.  He…

    Embracing the Darkness

    For when it comes, that shadow called night Upon a wave and beckoning lullaby When I alone greet darkness warmly Embracing those things that come alive For long the howling winds bring solace And skies that glow of amber moon Bade call to come and join the dance Embracing those things that are alive For casting glance in pools of water With eyes that shine of emeralds dark Barely covered with earthly cloak Embracing those things that came alive For burning desire of want to wander To ride the fearless call this eve Tresses met with caress of the darkness Embracing those things I am alive……..

    Ghosts and Hauntings 101: A Procedural Manual for the Investigation of the Paranormal

    PICTURE PERFECT Photography and Paranormal Investigation Now, let’s have a look at exactly what a “spirit entity” actually is. I have investigated three separate incidents in which the entity encountered was so solidly manifested it was impossible to tell it from a living person. One of these incidents happened to me, and it was the purest accident that I discovered it was not a living person. An account of this experience, titled “The Little Girl in the Ga Garden,” is included in my collection of true paranormal accounts titled Footprints in the Snow: Tales of Haunted Russia, published by Zumaya Publications. I have also had—and still have—personal encounters with spirit…

    Hally’s Hints

    What is Success – to You? What is the definition of success? Is it completing a degree? Is it having your parents say they are proud of you? Or perhaps it is making your first million dollars? In the scheme of things does it matter what success is? Or do we put so much into the end result that what gets us there doesn’t even matter. When you think about being successful what comes to mind? Is it the white picket fence, 2.3 children and a happily ever partner? Perhaps it is hitting the glass ceiling of the corporate world with the six figure salary? When is what we have…

    Celtic Awareness: Celtic Spirituality

    Celtic Spirituality is and has always been based on the fundamental knowledge that all existence is born of cyclical nature and therefore, all existence whether human or from nature has a direct link connecting the otherworld to the realm of the material world. From the Druidic teachings handed down through the Welsh tradition we are shown that there is an unseen world that intermingles and affects our perceptible world. Things are not always as they may seem. Everything that “is” exists on numerous synchronized levels. The human being, the cognitive creature that he is comprehends the world around him as having three dominions or levels as it were: the spiritual,…

    Pagan Theology

    Experiencing the work:  What Witches Do [1] In the last two columns we discussed various ways in which Pagans can connect with the divine.  We can use prayer, meditation, shamanistic journeys, ritual, magic, or other means to connect with the Gods and Goddesses.  But what happens once we do connect?  What evidence do we have for a connection in ourselves, and in others? This is a complex and important question that leads across psychology, philosophy, and theology.  Because its so big, and I can do it so little justice even in the column space and time that I do have, we’ll break this topic up into three installments, starting this…
