    Hally’s Hints

    ENERGETIC ALIGNMENT There is so much change taking place at the moment. This is from an individual perspective as well as a planetary and it does not seem as though it is going to stop any time soon. There is no doubt that the planet’s expression of earth quakes, tsunamis and so forth are horrific and heart breaking. It leaves me wondering, aside the necessity for balance, the approach of 2012, what else is influencing the severity that we see now too frequently around us. I can ponder and speculate that which I have received in conversations with my angels and spirit guides however, given the amount of heart break…

    Prunings from the Hedge

    Elements of a Personal Cult There is a sense in which the favorite deity has already chosen the devotee, and an early step in establishing a devotional relationship is to examine any unusual dreams or waking experiences that seem to be messages from someone.  Think back through your past, looking for experiences that preceded important turning points in your attitude and approach to life.  The experiences themselves need not have been unusual in any obvious sense, making their influence on us all the more mysterious.  I can remember one morning long ago when I was up at dawn walking to breakfast.  I had had a personal disappointment the night before,…

    Interweavings

    April Showers of Blessings The world is busting out in life as April reveals herself. Hope is seen everywhere as bulbs planted last fall push their way through the chilly earth to greet the sun. Hope and life are the two main themes at this time of year for those of us who follow an Earth based religion as well as our Christian family and neighbors. There is an amazing energy of love that cannot be contained within one belief system. The power of growth and warmth infuses not only the plants and earth, but each of us as well. It is the time to push through our own darkness…

    The Kitchen Witch

    Kitchen Witch Cleaning Now we don’t all have to be complete domestic Goddesses, but a kitchen that is tidy and smells clean helps with energy I think. When you are cleaning how about singing a song or playing some music?  Singing a Goddess or pagan song as you clean can really help raise the positive energy in your kitchen.  Doesn’t even have to be a pagan song, it can be one of your favourite disco ones if that’s what makes you happy and fills you with the energy to clean! I always like to put on an apron when I am in the kitchen, it is somehow a mental switch…

    Forest Moon Church

    IS THIS A CHRISTIAN NATION? I look around at all the fighting and harassment. I read the debates and arguments about which religion is right and which is wrong. The fundamentalists trying to infiltrate our government and make everyone see through their beliefs and make everyone believe as they do, this is not what our founding fathers wanted. If the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence knew what was going on today they would roll over in their graves and I know for a fact if they were alive none of this religious crap going on today would be happening. The Bill of Rights was designed to go hand-in-hand…
