    Plastic Paths: The Astral Travel Chronicles

    Through the Fog Over the past week or so, every astral travel experience has been odd. I don’t use the word “odd” lightly because in my experience every trip into the astral is strange, weird, off, and unusual, but these past few trips have been odd in a whole new way. From the moment I leave my body and begin walking around this other world, my movements become sluggish and my sight gets cloudy. Reaction time is slow and comprehension is even slower. “I’m stoned,” I hear myself say. “How did I get this way?” It’s a fair question. In the physical world I’m clean and sober, so why does…

    Musings of a Massachusetts Witch

    Are You Gifted? Recently, I was having a discussion with a friend concerning the concept of gifts and talents; are the words interchangeable or do they mean different things? And while we didn’t really come to a conclusion it left me contemplating the idea. I found that it was more complex than I first imagined and many people have set ideas on this concept that I don’t personally subscribe to. The first thing I considered was what each word meant. For this I turned to my trusted friend, Merriam-Webster. She is always my go-to gal when contemplating the meaning of words. I strongly believe that words and names hold power…

    Fall night

    Upon a time, a cool fall night, Shinning stars, the moon’s real bright. Hooded figures from the haze, Colors all in black and grays. They slowly move from tree to tree, Careful with the things they see. Shadows in the forest lie, Watching with a noiseless eye. The figures continue on their quest, Hidden dangers and unrest. On every path that they take, Brings them closer to the lake. Ancient trees, line the shore, Lingering magick… can’t ignore. Will-o-the-wisp….in the air, This is the spot, they must prepare. In a circle they hold hands, Shouting out….their demands. The flickering lights, start to glow, The words they chant, start to flow.…

    A Simple Path: Journey of a Hedgewitch

    The Self-Sufficient Hedge The Hedgewitch lives in the space between the Village and the Forest. Between the mundane and the magical. S/He lives with a foot in both worlds. This column is dedicated to the Hedgewitches of the planet earth. As some may recall, I moved to a small farmstead in coastal Oregon a year and a half ago. A tiny cottage situated on a few acres of land, half covered with ancient spruce, hemlock and fir. Immediately I began digging gardens, and within a month had installed 6 fluffy baby chickens into my laundry room to brood. The move came as a direct result of job-loss, with a downturn…

    WiseWoman Traditions

    Sexy Herbs Herbs that influence sexual functioning are safe, easy to use, and highly effective. They can improve desire, performance, and frequency for both men and women. Down There the Wise Woman Way includes specific information on using my favorite sexy herbs, including: oatstraw, schizandra, ginkgo, fenugreek, ginseng, tribulus, ginger, marijuana, damiana, potency wood, yohimbe, guarana, and dendrobium. Plus information on sexy foods, and the effects of supplements such as arginine. Oatstraw infusion is my favorite sexual tonic, for both men and women. It frees up, and thus increases, the amount of circulating testosterone. This aids lubrication, improves blood flow, increases stiffness, amps up interest, and heightens enjoyment. Postmenopausal women…

    Hearth and Home

    While trick or treaters with their sing song voices roam your streets, struggling under the burden of bags groaning with sugary abundance and pagans and witches alike watch the face of the Goddess become Crone, we here in the Southern lands will dance joyous and unashamed around phallic poles wrapped in brightly coloured ribbons, celebrating the regeneration of life with the return of the sun. Auhh summer, It didn’t seem that long ago that I fought a battle to somehow try to adapt to a turning wheel that knew only, dry and drier and hot and hotter. Everywhere I looked the land was burnt bare, trees stood parched in hot…

    Across the Great Divide

    Science and Psychics- The Tech of Paranormal Research Most of the intellectual rhetoric thrown back and forth between skeptics and parapsychologists concerns the types of tools used during investigations; sometimes even those within the field of psychical research will argue among themselves for or against certain techniques and tools. Since the field is one which attempts to quantify and classify phenomena that are, by definition, cultural, religious, and fundamentally unknown, it is somewhat acceptable to utilize devices and techniques of a more “mystical” nature. Many times the use of arcane devices and psychics can help lead the team to an area of interest or heightened activity, and sometimes even actual…

    Meditation Moment

    Progressive Muscle Relaxation As the Wheel of the Year turns to winter, it is natural for us to turn inward as well, using the increasing darkness to help us concentrate on internal matters and to work with trance states and meditative journeys. Progressive muscle relaxation is a simple but useful technique for quieting the body so that the spirit can engage in these experiences without being distracted by external influences. It can also be used as part of a larger meditative practice to help us recognize where we tend to experience stress physically and learn to release that tension. Describing stress as a feeling of pressure or tension isn’t just…
