    Interweavings

    April   This month in our Book of Seasons let’s focus on life joyously popping out all around us! We in the northern hemisphere are smack dab in the middle of Spring! Here in the southern states we are awash in yellow pollen.  Everywhere yellow!  A good rainfall cleanses the new leaves and colorful flowers so that they sparkle!  The air smells heavenly and baby animals and birds appear.   An affirmation for April could be –       I am bubbling over with Divine Life! Looking around at so much life returning to our world I, too, feel a stirring to bring forth something of great joy!  We give…

    Hally’s Hints

    The Ebbs and Flow of Change Over the past month there is no doubt that the energy has been intense. Many believed that after December 21st things would settle down. Whether there was an anticipation of this becoming hum drum or quiet, then they were sorely mistaken. Each full moon brings with it the truth of what is going on.

    Paranormal Path

    Doppelganger      Have you ever heard the theory that we all have a twin?  The thought that there may be someone out there who looks and acts exactly as we do only it is not us at all.  To some this is a mere urban legend, the myth of the Doppelganger.      Though is this really a myth?  There may be some truth to this bizarre phenomenon.  A look back reveals there have been some recorded cases in history of people seeing and even interacting with these “other halves”.      The word is German for “double goer” or “double walker”.  Similar is the Vardoger from Scandinavian folklore, which describes a…
