    Review of The Book of Shamanic Healing by Kristin Madden

    The Book of Shamanic Healing Author Kristin Madden ISBN 073870214  264 pgs,    $14.85 RETAIL This is the first book I have found that gives the shaman healer all he/she needs in their toolkit to be the best they need to be. Shamanism is an all-encompassing lifestyle of deep self-knowledge and powerful healing. In this book, a modern shaman gives the practitioner concrete advice and ideas on several aspects of shamanic healing. You will learn to prepare yourself for healing work, communicate with spirit guides, free your voice and seek your power song, safely explore your shadow side, partner with your drum to create healing, and heal yourself and others.

    A Numerology Report for Obama

    This is Obama’s general numerology report which I found very interesting to say the least. It really suits who he is or who we have come to believe he is. I became interested in this because of all the fear posts that have spread across the internet lately concerning Obama being the antichrist and so on. While this sort of thing also interests me even though I don’t believe in the antichrist, I wondered just what his numbers were and what they had to say. Since our economy is one foot off the cliff right now, a lot of people are only hanging on for this man and what he…

    Send Us a Sign

    Nearly every form of communication used by humans contains symbols.  In fact, you are looking at a whole bunch of symbols right at this moment… they’re called letters.  And if we were using hieroglyphs, we’d still be using symbols.  In one sense, even if we were speaking, we would be using symbols.  Symbols are an integral part of our magic and spirituality.  Without them, we wouldn’t be talking about them!  The importance of symbols to Pagans is no greater than to other human beings but it is to our benefit to understand more about them because of what that knowledge can do to elevate both our magical abilities and spiritual…

    Oracles & Omens

    I know I said this month’s column would be about the runes, but as I began to do my research it seemed as though something just kept getting in my way.  I was lying in bed one night trying to figure out why I was having so much trouble putting my words together on this topic when it hit me…BAM….February is the time of one of the oldest and most well known divination rituals that is commonly accepted today.  Groundhog Day! I suppose this should have been an easy choice for this month’s topic, the Goddess works in mysterious ways.  I actually live about 30 minutes from the quiet little…

    The Witch’s Cupboard

    We come to that time of year when many lonely souls come to us and ask us to do our magik and a spell to bring love into their lives. Most only need a ‘charm’ or ‘crutch’ in order to help their own self esteems and to bring them out of their shells. There have been times I have been so caught up with helping others bring love into their lives that I have forgotten and neglected my own. Forgotten to even do the little things for those I love. This month in The Witch’s Cupboard, I want to explore a few of the herbs that have historically been used…

    The Everyday Witch

    The Everyday Witch notices the magic in the mundane and uses the images of her environmental space to conduct effective Spelling.   In order to get to that point in our daily lives, where the magic is obvious, we must have the tools to visualize our space and experience the magic. For my introductory column, I am supposed to write some flowery stuff about me and my heritage and what I know.  Instead, I will direct you to my new MySpace and The Everyday Witch website to give you the update on me.  I would much prefer for you to be thinking about Correspondences and what they mean to you, what…
