The Moon has always been a mysterious thing to me. I look at it and I feel a sense of comfort, and a sense of wonder. Do you also stare in wonder at the Moon sometimes? Then this blog post is for you.
I am not a Wiccan. However, I do like to take advantage of what God has given us to use in our lives. And I believe we can use the power of the Moon.
Ken Biles of Cyber Witchcraft explains how all people are affected by the Moon. First responders in emergency services will most likely tell you that things can get a little unusual around the time of a Full Moon. This is a truism without scientific proof. Read the rest of this entry »
Our wise ancestors worshipped the stars in the heavens above and considered them to be a direct reflection of the earth below. As you may know, the movement of the planets in our solar system absolutely mirrors everything that is occurring on Earth at any point in time.
Have you heard of the deities known as Nut and Geb? In Egyptian mythology Nut and Geb are twins. Nut is the sky goddess and Geb is the Earth god. In the imagery found in ancient art, Nut is typically shown to be arching over, or mirroring Geb, who lies below. As above, so below…
The Egyptians were exceptionally precise astronomers. The three pyramids at Giza mirror perfectly the three stars in Orion’s belt above. They are Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. These three stars form the most striking and isolated line in the heavens. Read the rest of this entry »
If you have been practicing meditation, opening your chakras and playing guessing games to develop your intuition, you may have started seeing and hearing things that you have questions about. Hopefully, you are also keeping a journal and writing down anything that seems to ‘pop’ into your mind while meditating. Often these are messages from your spirit guides.
As you develop psychically, you usually start to become aware of a presence or maybe multiple presences around you while you meditate. You may catch glimpses of faces, usually benevolent and smiling, while your eyes are closed. Or you may hear a voice, or chorus of voices, usually saying loving things or singing. You can often also feel a connection to all living things in the world, and to the air, the water, and the earth. Perhaps you feel the presence of a greater intelligence that is all around, and within and connected to all things in life. Read the rest of this entry »
I believe cats, like many animals, have special gifts. They are mystical creatures that share a special world. Unlike other animals, I think somehow they are aware they have these gifts and share special secrets with each other, within a mystical and magical life.
Animals send us messages of healing and caring if we are intuitive and open to receiving them. Cats can be instrumental in helping us find peace when we are troubled or upset.
When I am doing a psychic reading, one of my cats, Paddy, always insists on being near me. On calls, when the caller is particularly troubled, Paddy begins to meow and almost takes over the reading. On one occasion I had to gently guide him out of the room. It is almost like he is trying to use his psychic and intuitive abilities, and I am merely his channel. I feel grounded when he is around me; it is like he knows the person calling needs guidance and support. Read the rest of this entry »
How well do you know yourself? Probably, not very well. You are an accumulation of everything that you have ever owned, done, experienced, and been. And I am not just talking about this lifetime; this life is merely another little stepping stone on a very long spiritual pathway.
It’s difficult to master something when you can’t see what you are dealing with, right? But how do you see yourself? The mirror is only a reflection of the physical – it doesn’t reflect anything metaphysical. So, what do you do?
And about that stepping stone: whatever, however, wherever it is – it is your responsibility. Oh my Goddess, you say! How can this be my creation? Because you are the creator, silly. Whatever you have created and wherever you are standing right now, is an absolute reflection of what you are at this time. Read the rest of this entry »
In the past couple of weeks, I had to deal with major financial expenses related to our property. We have to move across the country, and we are having issues with the house. Then there were also the added costs of a vehicle that needed urgent repairs. This was not a lot of money, but it came up at the same time as the property issue, and the costs of our move.
To add insult to injury, my beautiful little kitty knocked over a cup of water onto my computer yesterday… and fried my motherboard! I found out later that my extended warrantee had just expired, and the repair costs were not really worth it, considering that the technology was a few years old. So, I had to purchase a new computer for work. Read the rest of this entry »
The Choctaw knew today’s full moon as the “Cooking Moon,” while the Chinese traditionally call it the “Wolf Moon.”
Choctaw tribes are considered among the oldest on the North American continent, peaking between 800 and 900 A.D. and their homestead was in the place we now call Mississippi. Lore says they were the first in the land and that a relationship existed between the Choctaw and the Mayan, Toltec, Incan and Aztec civilizations. Research appears to back this up.
The Choctaw divided their time with the light – day was day and night was night. But, if a wrong was committed at night, it might be seen by Mother Moon, a Star Child or The Fire, and you would be reported for your indiscretion and called to answer for it. The Choctaw considered fire to be a gift from the Sun deity Hashtahli, for the Choctaw to be used to cook their food, ward off wild animals and furnish needed light during the hours of darkness.

I don’t even know where to start. I’ve copied a few passages from my diary, it’s the only way to tell you how I have been treating myself, and I am ashamed. I could use some insight as to where to go from here. Here is what I wrote.
“Every day, I push back the emotions that hit me like waves from a stormy sea. I talk myself down and sooth my troubled soul. I have done something I swore I would never do – I put myself on the back burner.
On hold. I wait.
