    I am Wiccan

    I am Wiccan, It’s in my heart. I am Wiccan, Every ounce of every part. I lead my life in a different way, With the Goddess by my side. I work with the elements each passing day, And complete my spells with pride. I hide behind a mirrored door, Afraid to show my face. I am me and so much more, But to you I am a disgrace. I walk the ways of Our Earth Mother, And follow the words “Ye Harm None“. Just because some have chosen another, Does not make mine the wrong One. Love and Light to those who know, The truth behind what I write. As…

    Oracles and Omens

    divination is something that every human marvels about. A Tarot reading by an experienced interpreter can be quite informative. The way the cards are presented in a layout tells quite a story. Each card laid out represents something that could be within the Querent’s life. Each placement of the cards tells what part of the Querent’s life the card is revealing. All the pieces of information given in a reading is important. Each card is different and each card has its own meaning. True believers take into account every detail that is revealed in their reading. I would like to take a look at Harmony this month from the Shape…

    Across the Great Divide

    Michigan Hauntings I’ve had the fortune of visiting many interesting places to come away with some amazing personal experiences and evidence.  I’ve included links, where appropriate, to photos and EVPs from these locations.  Just click on the image thumbnails or the sound clip to access the links. In the spring of 2008 I was involved in the investigation of a house in the historic city of Mount Clemens, Michigan.  Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, under the shade of centuries-old oaks and maples, sits a home that was built in the 186o’s.  With such a long and profound history of the house and its neighborhood it was not surprising that tales…

    Rite and Ritual

    The Magick of a Summer’s Night Full Moon The warm evening slowly melts, giving way to the night. Cooler air begins gently drift further out from the river’s banks and creep across the forest floor. A full moon crests above the fir covered ridge north east of the river’s course. I stand at the entrance of the path, tuning myself to the moment while looking up to the moon through the darkening cedar boughs. My feet melt into the Earth, seeking a deeper connection as I fill my lungs with the forest’s breath. Sweet and warm fills my senses within the sated content that slows my vibration. I think I…

    Chatter

    Chatter chatter chatter Go all the talking heads Speaking no wisdom Just hate and indifference Wake up in the morning To shouts of “us and them” Power in their words Ratings behind their Amen’s Yes rouse up the people Divide what is yours and mine Pack up your belongings You’re no longer alive Get out! Go back! What I say goes I have all the answers From my microphone throne In the land of mass communication Divinity has nothing on me I can lie, cheat and deceive Instantaneously Don’t tell me to think They do it for me I believe what I hear Cause it brings superiority Gray matter No…

    Me,Myself and I, Notes From a Solitary Practitioner

    Merry meet Brothers and Sisters!  My name is Rayneschild and I am a commited solitary practitioner.  I prefer it this way because it allows me to have direct contact with spirit.  It also gives me the freedom use invocations, quarter calls, and natures gifts on the fly at the time of ritual allowing me to practice a much freer and less formal type of magick.  Thats not to say there aren’t times when I use my tools, altar, and plan ahead, because I definitely do, but there are just as many times that spirit moves me to perform a rite at 2 in the morning wearing fuzzy slippers and flannel…

    Musings of a Massachusetts Witch

    This is the third part in an ongoing experience titled – Entity. My husband and I decided that we would begin researching the history of our historical home. Perhaps discovering who had lived here would uncover clues that might lead us to a better understanding of what we were experiencing in the residence. Maybe there was a Sarah who dwelled here years ago. Our search might uncover nothing of importance but I knew it would be interesting at the least. Our first visit would be to the library Archives where they kept historical records. We began compiling a list of residence and discovered the following history: From the Assessors Office…
