    Fox Dreaming: Family Magic

    On Easter Monday 2017 I had a long and rather complex dream about a fox costume. (I had this dream during the night following the day where I had been running around a snowy forest in my bear suit while my husband filmed me, eating snow and sleeping in my cave. This actually happened, in ordinary reality! (The footage is part of an art film I am currently working on). However, in my dream I had a very beautiful and realistic fox costume. The head was separate and fitted my head perfectly, like a helmet. It was also very life-like. I really BECAME A FOX wearing it. I decided to…

    Book Review- Neolithic Shamanism: Spirit Work in the Norse Tradition by Raven Kaldera & Galina Krasskova

    Neolithic Shamanism: Spirit Work in the Norse Tradition   20 Nov 2012 by Raven Kaldera and Galina Krasskova I have great respect for both these authors, Raven Kaldera and Galina Krasskova, because they do not just “talk the talk”, they actually “walk the walk”. They do not belong to any “New age” or “Love and light” movement; hey state upfront that walking a spiritual path takes immense commitment and sacrifices. I could not agree more! What I like about this book is that it provides accessible information and suitable activities for people who are new to the Nordic Tradition. Paying close attention to the land, trees, animals, ancestors, weather spirits and so forth…

    ECO not EGO

    In truth don’t know all that much about plants – but I am still going to write a piece about plants! For me summer 2016 was dedicated to learning about wild plants and communicating with plants and trees. We had just bought our dream house in Sweden. It is set on a huge rock in a pristine forest, on the Baltic coast just south of Stockholm. I spent a lot of time in the forest and walking down farm tracks. I also read some thought-provoking books written by people who have dedicated their lives to plants. My key learnings about plants and trees in general were that a) They live…

    A Spiritual Toolkit for the Exam Period

      A year ago I started using some tried and tested  techniques from shamanism (the most ancient spiritual practice known to humankind) to support my eldest son through his GSCE exam period (those are general exams for all 16 year olds in the UK). I can’t be the only parent who is actively looking for a spiritual toolkit specific to the challenge of exams. In this article I will share some tried and tested things that work well for our family. Powering up! Our society has (largely) replaced religion with science. This means that most people roll out of bed and start their day without prayers, meditation or actively setting…

    Review: WitchEmoji by Pam Grossman

    Hunt for Witches No More: WitchEmojis by Pam Grossman Witches now have their own charmed emoji to use with iMessenger, thanks to Pam Grossman, a Brooklyn-based writer and curator who focuses on witches, magic and esoteric art. “I created WitchEmoji because I couldn’t find any great witchy, magical emoji to use in my texts,” she states on the witchemoji.com website, adding, “Necessity (or obsessive desire in this case) is the mother of invention.” Working with an emoji designer who created the icons based on her designs and direction, she then built the app herself. Costing $1.99, it launched early April 2017. The iMessage sticker pack is compatible with iPhones and…

    MagickalArts

    All Hail to Astrological Beltane and the Parting of the veils to New Life!     A little background…… In many traditions the date of celebration for Beltane is May 1st and that of its counterpart, Samhain is Oct. 31 or Nov. 1. Although these dates have accumulated much astral energy from repeated use, if you wish to follow the astronomical approach, which is where the origins of the cross-quarter days lay, those dates are premature. Beltane falls mid-point between the Vernal Equinox and the Summer Solstice. Each of the cross-quarter Sabbats – Beltane, Lammas, Samhain and Imbolc fall within that half way point between an Equinox and a Solstice. And,…

    The Wild SHE

    THE WILD SHE – KALI The Wild SHE – Which Goddess comes to your mind when you hear “The Wild SHE”? For me, that will always be Kali. “By you this universe is borne, by you this world is created By you it is protected, O Devi.
