    Book of Shadows: As the Wheel Turns

    Imbolc Planned and Explored February is the month of Brigid, the hearth fires are tended, the seeds are readied for planting, and spell work done in February focuses on purification, growth, and healing. Loving the self is the theme throughout the month of February; after all, how you love your self will teach everyone in your sphere of influence how to love you. This is a time for kindness to be extended inward. In addition, the energies in February are peek for accepting responsibility for past mistakes and forgiving yourself while you make plans for the future. This month, I focus on spell crafting and making sigils. A sigil is…

    Finding Your Own Way

    Chapter 9 Candle Meditation Candle meditation and candle ‘magic’ have a wide application in modern paganism. There are many variations on this method. One can use different colour candles to focus on different aspects of our life and our intention. There are many ‘tables of correspondences’ which link various coloured candles to different intentions. The most effective colour correspondences are to be found in any book on colour psychology. For example, focusing on the colour red will raise our blood pressure, and perhaps, help to build our determination for a particular task. Red is the colour of action and passion. Try wearing red if you feel a little fatigued or…

    Book Review – Shaman Express by Beretta Rousseau

    Book Review Shaman Express by Beretta Rousseau Short review: I hated this book. Let me say right off the bat that I am the wrong person to be reviewing this book. I am going to be fifty-nine this year; I am a die-hard radical feminist; I have been in recovery for almost thirty years now; I read the entire canon of Carlos Castanedas over forty years ago; I grew out of this kind of “using drugs to find spiritual enlightenment” bullshit before the age of THIRTY. To be honest, I might have liked this book – a whole lot – when I was twenty-one or so – but that was…

    Hygiea (Image Credit: Amazon) Hygiea, the daughter of Epione, the Goddess of the Soothing of Pain, and Aslepius, God of Medicine, is the Greek Goddess of Health and Healing.

    Awakening My Wild! I always feel renewed and empowered at this time of the year. I am a daughter of the cold and wintry world and this is when I come alive and awaken all of my senses to the world around me. This is also the time when I renew my commitment to the Divine Feminine and exploration of HER wild nature. This year, in particular has been difficult for many women given the political agendas and the fear of losing precious legal ground that has seen the sacrifice of many women’s privacy and power in gaining. And so, as the weather becomes colder and the yearning to be…

    Spirits on Individual Journeys

    “Indigenous people don’t learn by looking outside themselves; instead, they learn how to remember the knowledge they already possess.” –Malidoma Somé (Dagara elder and shaman) I’ve been practicing and studying earth-based spiritual systems since 2000. In the process of trying to heal from deep depression and addiction, I’ve worked with many different teachers from many of the world’s traditions. In my darkest moments, I needed older, wiser, and mostly healed guides who could help me learn to listen to my inner wise one (A.K.A. Dreamer, High Self). When I was struggling the most on my life journey, I leaned heavily on their knowledge to get through those times and I…

    Witch & Popcorn

    Bright Blessings film lovers! I’m reviewing a new show instead of a movie this time. This show has made quite a stir on Netflix this week, and people are either celebrating it, or upset by the hosts suggestions. There seems to be no happy medium response. People either love this or hate it. I watched a few Episodes of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Let me begin by saying I freaking LOVE this! Smart business lady Marie Kondo hails from beautiful Japan, where she single-handedly started an organizing business based on clean, minimal living, only owning things you get a lot of use out of, and teaching a lifestyle of…

    Book Review – The Bardic Book of Becoming: An Introduction to Modern Druidry by Ivan McBeth with Fern Lickfield

    Book Review The Bardic Book of Becoming An Introduction to Modern Druidry by Ivan McBeth with Fern Lickfield Ivan McBeth died peacefully at home on September 23.2016, and his name and work remains as that one of the penultimate Druids. Reading the introduction and the words of his partner, Fern Lickfield drew me into this book well before the actual meat of the book. And, the closing words of Orion Foxwood, completed a beautiful book of hope, teaching and wisdom in the way of the bard. This is a book of beginnings that offers those new to the path of Druidry solid foundation in a style of mystery and magick…
