My relationship with food evolved the day I decided to start my own garden. I didn’t have much space where I lived, so I rented a plot in a community garden nearby, for a very small fee.
Although it soon became a part-time job, it also turned into my sanctuary. Any stress from the day cleared when I went there. I was always eager to go there and visit my growing family of fruits, herbs, flowers and vegetables. It made me feel like a child again!
Connecting with the Earth on such a deep level also gave me a new perspective on my spiritual identity. From being inspired by fellow gardeners to teaching my son important life skills, I was motivated to get serious about treating my body like a temple and also raising awareness in others. Something I once took for granted and paid little attention to, became a great passion and concern for me. Read the rest of this entry »
The modern stereotype of a witch is that she is an ugly, old woman with a hooked nose and pointed hat, riding a broomstick or stirring up a witches brew in a huge pot. In truth a witch is someone who practices magic as part of their religion or spiritual belief system, such as Wicca or Neo-paganism.
Witches worship nature and love the Earth; they do not worship Satan. That is a myth, just as much as the idea that witches are ugly and scary. Witches are beautiful and do no harm. They believe in the rule of three, understanding that everything we do comes back to us threefold.
The more we destroy the Earth, the more we destroy ourselves. A witch’s purpose is to save the Earth. Witches relish their wild nature and align themselves with the cycles of the earth and the phases of the Moon and the stars. Read the rest of this entry »
I am, for all intents and purposes, a transplanted ‘Islander’ who is far, far away from her home… many thousands of miles, in a culture that could not be more different than the one I was raised in, if it tried to be.
The differences in perspective are so very large when you come from a tiny island in the Caribbean. I tend to be much more laid back than, say, someone who may have been born and raised in a big city. I’m not always ‘understood’ by some who think I need to be a lot more of, well, I have never been able to figure that out exactly, what I should be ‘more’ of, since I love being me. And after all this time, I know how to be me. Read the rest of this entry »
I watched the movie 2012 for the first time… would you guess it… the very day before the first earthquake hit in Japan! I couldn’t believe my eyes, watching on CNN the earth breaking in half just like in the movie. Houses were being washed away and lives taken within a blink of an eye.
For some of us this news came as a shock, but not as a surprise. Many spiritually aware people all over the world had been on edge lately. Just like the animals, we feel it, we have an innate sense that things are a bit ‘off’.
After the news broke, I was feeling the need to do something to help out. I make scarves for children and I figured for every one that I make and sell I could donate half of the profits and send it to a proper cause, that I know will go directly to help in some small way. Every bit does help. Read the rest of this entry »
Yes, true, the world has gone somewhat mad. But there is also method in all this. The mess we have made is merely a part of our evolutionary process. The frog had to drink up almost half the pond it lives in, before it could leap across it and into the Light.
No, we did not get here by accident. It’s all part of the Big Plan, the Blueprint.
Gerald Heard, the philosopher, realized this fact many years ago when he speculated on the evolutionary growth of our cultural consciousness and the psychological make-up of modern man. Read the rest of this entry »
Yes, life is about choices. So, pause for a moment and reflect, because there is no turning back from what is about to be revealed to you.
Do you increasingly feel that your life has no meaning? Has God gone blind or deaf? Why are we so disconnected? Why do we feel so lonely, bored, tired, frustrated? Why is our environment in a mess?
The misery of modern existence is not just your imagination. There is no melodrama in what many of us perceive to be ‘a world gone mad’.
It may, however, surprise you to know that our predicament is not as bad as it may appear to be. Our existential chaos is not the work of an angry God and neither is the world about to come to an end in December 2012! Read the rest of this entry »
