    Witches Soul Work: Gratitude I’m looking after a little 93 year old lady right now who was in Auschwitz for 3 years during World War II. She saw her parents killed in front of her and begged the soldier to kill her too. Every night she still has images of the horrors that she experienced and yet she is one of the most positive and grateful people that I know.

    Witches Soul Work: Healing the World Soul Everyone is very focused on healing themselves, creating positive internal dialogue, loving themselves and their own spiritual advancement but one of the main magickal energies that Witches focus on is healing the earth. Can we really make a difference? How does it work? Exercise: Close your eyes and think of the world today. What comes to mind? Do you think of wars, pollution, holes in the ozone layer, wide spread cancers, poisoned water? Just imagine for one minute a new perspective. Imagine that what we see in our mind we manifest. What if the pollution, wars, etc. are being manifest by us (collectively)…

    Baba Yaga     There are many stories of Baba Yaga but most likely her story is very old and comes from the stories of the old Gods long before our modern times. She is a Crone Goddess who is honoured at Harvest and she is present in the last sheaf of grain where she ensures that the grain will grow again. Later on she became, like most Witches in Europe, a scary story to frighten children. The first clear reference to Baba Yaga (Iaga baba) occurs in 1755; Mikhail V. Lomonosov’s Rossiiskaia grammatika (‘Russian grammar’). In this work Lomonosov lists Slavic gods and their Roman equivalences but Baba Yaga…
