    Magic of the Gods

    The Great God Pan   The goat legged, cloven footed horned God Pan is best known for his role as God and protector of Shepherds and flocks, yet that is just one of his many titles. He is god of the wild places and of the forests and mountains, he who causes fear and panic in the hearts of men and beast. He is life and death and he who plays his reed pipes to call the north winds. Pan has the power to inspire lust, creativity and foreknowledge and is the panic felt when one finds themselves in dark lonely places. The word Pan means all.   Pan’s role…

    Musings of a Massachusetts Witch

    My Sister’s Keeper   I recently purchased the film My Sister’s Keeper, which was based on a novel written by Jodi Picoult, which I have not read but may in the future. It is an older film that was released in 2009. The plot evolves around an eleven-year-old girl, Anna Fitzgerald, who was conceived by means of in vitro fertilization and looks to earn medical emancipation from her parents who have relied on her since the day of her birth to help her leukemia-stricken sister, Kate remain alive. It was an emotionally infused film that had me crying throughout the viewing but also had me contemplating some serious concepts one…

    Hally’s Hints

    The Greater Purpose of Spiritual Enlightenment   More and more there are movies coming out about the state of the planet, the neglect with animals and the continued ignorance of the human race. Energy and spiritualism reflects this and the whole ending of the shift last year compounded what was going on that many are either unaware of or simply choose to ignore because it isn’t happening directly on their front lawn.   Over twelve months ago a free downloadable movie came out called “Home” which provided specifics about the planet, how the oxygen of the planet is being compromised as is the water and now with fracturing which puts…

    WiseWoman Traditions

    THE WISE WOMAN TRADITION EMPOWERS WOMEN   The Wise Woman Tradition is the oldest known healing tradition on our planet. It offers a unique view of health that is woman-centered and deeply empowering to women. This is in stark contrast to orthodox – and most alternative – healing traditions, which are based on male viewpoints which disempower women. The medicine I learned in school was based on a linear, scientific, male worldview whose truth I did not question. When this medicine failed me, as a woman and a mother, I sought alternatives. Herbs helped me take care of myself and my family, simply and safely, but I questioned the assumptions…

    Spells and Me

    In order to cast spells, the witch must first get free of spells which have been cast on her.  Spells are cast on us in childhood and later in adolescence, up through about age 19, when we define our adult personalities.  Thereafter we chiefly react against the spells we carry from an early age, following the contradictory guidance of other spells (for spells often oppose each other).  The witch must come to grips with these spells, one by one, and lay them to rest.  In some cases the spell is so deeply ingrained that it must be accepted as part of the witch’s magical personality; in order to do this,…

    Simple Spells and Rituals

    For as long as I have been a Witch I have heard, and sometimes refereed, the “Binding Spell” discussion.  On one side there is the belief that spells should not be done without a persons knowledge, on the other side self-defense and protection.  Not to sound like a politician, but my opinion has evolved.  It took me a while to see in my life, that sometimes there is just no other way.  That being said, I always try protection spells first, and then sometimes binding is all that’s left.  If constant damage is being done through a persons negative, or dangerous behavior it’s a way to stop it.  In my…
