    Me,Myself and I, Notes from a Solitary Practitioner

    While going through my teenage years I found myself in spiritual strife Which religion should I join and dedicate my life? First came the Baptist preacher who promised soulful rest Then shortly after stating this his hand was on my breast Then I went to a revival that promised “Welcome one and all” Then the threats began to change our ways or into the pit of hell we’d fall I wondered if I was Baptised would I find that divine peace But every church I asked for this needed what was damn near a lease Then one day through happenstance I read the Wiccan Rede Do what you will and…

    Pellar Song

    The new-age circus has come to town and all wise women go to ground. The sacred glade where once we stood, has been cut down for firewood. From deer park to nesting ground, now concrete jungle all around. The herbs we gathered and dried with care, through sprays and poisons, found no-where. The shells and stones from coast and brook, all hid by rubbish – take a look! The haunting song of the nightingale a whisper ‘gainst the sirens wail. The village green where children played, is where the drunks and junkies sway. And in the lanes we used to ride, now souped-up engines, past us, fly. So what has…

    Musings of a Massachusetts Witch

    Raising Wiccans It is my belief that children need to be taught spirituality and which path is taught is generally the path that the parents follow. If you follow a Wiccan path then teaching Wicca to your children is appropriate, if you follow a Christian path then teaching your children Christianity is appropriate. Does this mean that other religions or spiritual paths should be ignored? No. What it means is – you raise your children with the idea that there is a Divine Source from which all things flow; that there is something that connects all living beings. As that child matures you may then open the door to other…

    Part of a new begining… at AVONDALE! http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/AvondaleTheRPG/ Avondale is a completely new and innovative concept in original Historically Based Role Playing Games. Age Range: Adult (17+) It’s 1901 and the world is entering a new century. It’s a time of rapid growth and expansion; a time of industrialization and commerce — of waves of immigration to the land where “the streets are paved with gold”. The United States has just engaged in it’s first “foreign war” and has suddenly found itself with an unwanted and unwelcome “colonial empire” and comittments to far-away places and peoples. It is a time of transition in which old meets new. TR is in…

    Gems of the Goddess

    LILLITH THE TEMPTRESS Some may think of her as a daemon, and even a fallen angel, but Lilith is far beyond what she is perceived as.  Legend says that Lilith was the first women created, not Eve.  Lilith and Adam were put on earth to reproduce, and when Adam started to take the dominant position during intercourse by being on top, Lilith just wouldn’t have it.  She asked him why he insisted this, and he replied by saying that she was a women.  Lilith became enraged, and argued that since they were created by the same creator, that they were both equals.  When Adam still refused Lilith left the Garden…

    Astral Travel, Lesson 12

    Space Ship There are several different variations of this same traveling method. Most involve creating your own room/work space/ laboratory. I created this variation because it was easier for me to travel to and work with. With your eye mask on, get into a meditative state using your preferred method. I think that this one will be easier if you lay down, but of course be in the position that works best for you. Once you are in your meditative state, and you are calm, quiet, and still, a bright light beams down upon you from above. This light is white with blue, red, orange hues. It is warm. You…
