    Hally’s Hints

    Raising the Vibration There has been such an increase into awareness and insight of Spiritualism as well as the shift into Spiritualism that I wrote an Ebook on it… mostly because it is all about the energetic vibration and why this is so crucial right now. The awareness of the collective is becoming more apparent and it is this that is being affected by incorrect information or those that want to take advantage for the gain of ego, not the collective. To understand what this all means we need to take a step back… Simply what does all of this mean? Some believe we are in the Piscean Age, where…

    Perthro’s Pronouncements

    Today’s article finds me with questions. Questions about the god’s involvement in our lives. Do they merely observe, and guide, and not interfere, or are they actively changing circumstances in our lives to teach us lessons, or to provide for certain experiences? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what is really going on in our lives. Is it all random, with no discernable path, or is there someone pulling the strings? Do the gods and goddesses watch us, and see where we are going, without taking an active role in what happens? If they do, they how do we explain how certain events seem to correlate, or as the…

    InterWeavings

    The twelve months of Virtues continues. Our second month on our journey is centered on the word love. There is a lot of power in that four letter word. We use it without thinking about it most of the time and for me it usually involves ice cream or shoes. Many times the word love is spoken to convey a deep connection with another person. There is cynicism at times as well. In January we looked at Simplicity as the foundational building block for the year of virtues. The power inherent in love gives depth and meaning to all we pursue, in our interactions with each other and in our…

    Plastic Paths: The Astral Travel Chronicles

    The Ethics of Astral Travel As moderator of an online Out of Body group, many of the new members have the same questions, but every once in awhile we get a new question. A few years back, a man introduced himself, explained that his first experience had been unintentional; he woke up walking around his bedroom while seeing his sleeping body on the bed. He then explained that his current goal was to astral travel around someone else’s house to prove that he could and did leave his body. His question was, what was the best way of going about doing this? I absolutely understand. Astral traveling is amazing, awe-inspiring,…

    Rayne’s Ritual Way
