    Book Review – You Already Know: How to Access Your Intuition and Find Your Divine Life Path by Helen Jacobs

    Book Review You Already Know How to Access Your Intuition and Find Your Divine Life Path by Helen Jacobs 344 Pages     I started this book just as the quarantine in the US began, so doing the exercise of creating silence and sacred space was comfortable. Easier than it would have been for me before the quarantine. I haven’t made this many notes for a book in a long time. Since it was an e-book, I had to have my spiral notebook close by to make my notes. I always stop reading and write what I want to remember right away; otherwise, I forget too quickly things that catch…

    Book Review – One Truth and One Spirit: Aleister Crowley’s Spiritual Legacy by Keith Readdy

    Book Review One Truth and One Spirit Aleister Crowley’s Spiritual Legacy by Keith Readdy 436 Pages     I purposely do not read anyone else’s reviews on a book before I read a book. I do this so that another does not influence my view of the book; I must admit books on Aleister Crowley can be a little dry, and the difficult. But there’s always strange & interesting tidbits that I pick up in the books. Mr. Readdy’s book is a history book. Therefore, it reads like a history book, and if your history buff, that’s fine. I was still able to find a lot of interesting information within…

    Spiritual Gaslighting: Part 1

    Spiritual Gaslighting: Is this Happening to You?   “We sometimes look at leaving as a bad thing or associate it with giving up or quitting, but sometimes leaving is the best thing you can do for yourself. Leaving allows you to change directions, to start over, to rediscover yourself and the world. Leaving sometimes saves you from staying stuck in the wrong place with the wrong people. Leaving opens a new door for change, growth, opportunities and redemption. You’re even allowed to leave the old you behind and reinvent yourself.” -Rania Naim   I grew up in a Portuguese family of mostly lapsed Catholics. My paternal grandmother was devout, however.…

    Worth the Witch

      Una Spirit Medicine Bundle     “Dream Guidance” was the theme of the Una Spirit Medicine Bundle sent to customers in September. Its contents were selected to increase awareness of the gifts dream journeys offer. “This is a topic very dear to my heart,” said Alicia Franzen of Heart Path Creations. “I have always felt that no matter how much one doesn’t remember dreaming, we are all dreaming every night. … We don’t exercise this awareness enough. We are deeply connecting to the Spirit world through dreams. Dreams are a sacred time of coming back to our truth.”     Dreams don’t happen to us, we actively engage with…

    Plant Spirit Medicine in Shamanic Practice

    What’s in the Brew? Scientist: Mescaline. Shaman: God.   Shamans…believe that the information given to us… by other teacher plants or in non-ordinary states such as dreams and meditations is as valid (or more so) than that received from ordinary perception and thought. Furthermore, such information is given to us to be used in daily life not to be ignored, denied, or seen as lacking in merit or purpose. To deny our dreams, after all, is to deny a large part of our human and spiritual experience. Thus, for San Pedro shamans, the visions and insights gained from the plant are there to inform our everyday behavior in the ‘real world’…
