Wherein we have the natural places in which we sequester our spirits – in sundry spaces such as temples or churches; within the bowers of our trees in nature, within our souls when there is no place to hide; in the suns open glare in the open deserts; or in the cold stare of the crowd – there you will still find the deep sequestered self of your soul. It is your own, not to be shared, never to be sold.
Even if one is not able to, for whatever reason, express one’s faith or reason within a world that is unreasonable, to not only a god, but perhaps one’s idea of it, whether it be of art, of love, or science, there within the sequestered self, there resides the natural spirit.
When you feel there is no place wherein you find a place to whisper your deepest prayer or desire, or your sweetest secrets or confessions to your God, where you feel there should be no man who can intervene, there should be a place where you can find a place of solace, where you can express your spiritual self and inclinations, deep within your mind.

Spiritual ceremonies, where humans gather together in a circle, are especially potent. An energetic hoop gathers over the circle to assist in the endeavor for the gathering, whether it be for the purpose of celebrating a new birth, honoring a solstice, or to express anything of importance to humanity, as individuals, or as a group.
Altars are also powerful. They are a gathering place for spirits to provide protection and shielding, to aid in a calling or, perhaps, to provide a sacred place for the energy of one who has crossed to another dimension to gather and connect. Or, we might choose to build an altar dedicated to providing an anchor for our business when we are away, the same as when we are present. Read the rest of this entry »
Angels are holy spiritual beings who love and serve God. They help people and do good work. These angels, who people celebrate, are faithful angels who go out into the world for our highest good. But this is not always the case.
There’s another type of angel out there. The type of angel that we don’t talk. The fallen angel.
Fallen angels are also known as demons. They work their evil, creating chaos in the world and constantly tempting us the do evil deeds.
They are angels that have fallen from grace. The angels that have been cast from Heaven. It is believed that God created all angels to be holy. They are here to help and guide us. It’s also the belief that one of the most beautiful angels, called Lucifer, chose to go against God’s wishes. He wanted power and he rebelled against God. He was cast from Heaven, down to the Earth.

In my personal experience Spirit is the in-dwelling essence from which all things come. Spirit is the life force that dwells within us and in all living things, and represents each individual’s highest path and potential.
So how do we connect with “Spirit”? The concept or idea of Spirit is found within many spiritual traditions. It is the reason why individuals to this day practice specific religions in hopes that they too can align themselves with the higher power or Spirit. Read the rest of this entry »
Many centuries have come and gone since the Athenians ascended the Acropolis to seek the guidance and protection of Athena, the maiden goddess of wisdom, war and divine intelligence. Her status as the favorite daughter of Zeus, and powerful patron deity of the city of Athens, remains evident to this day.
Expecting to be mostly drawn to the Theatre of Dionysus Eleuthereus, when I visited the Acropolis of Athens in Greece*, I was instead keenly aware of the omnipresence of Athena’s legacy. My undergraduate education in literature and drama afforded me a reasonably good understanding of the role of the god Dionysus in ancient Greek culture. I knew about the festivals and plays, and as a student I often imagined visiting the remains of those historic open-air auditoriums. Read the rest of this entry »
I decided to write a blog about psychic protection, because so many clients ask how to best shield themselves from negative influences. When I speak with people about psychic protection, I usually find that they generally either don’t understand its importance, or they need to better understand how we come under the influence of negative forces.
You may remember from my recent blog, entitled You Actually Have Two Bodies, that we each have an astral body that resides on the astral plane, which is located above the physical plane on which our physical bodies function. The two bodies interact with each other through electromagnetism – the positive and masculine energy of the Sun and the negative more receptive or feminine energy of the Moon.
The astral body is really the ‘soul’. It contains the sum total of a person’s experiences as well as the manner in which they have assimilated these experiences. Psychologists often refer to the ‘unconscious mind’. This is, in effect, the astral mind, which we can access through visualization, meditation, and hypnosis. Read the rest of this entry »
Those of the light are crushed by oppression
outcast, harassed and beset by depression
Discounted as freaks are the spiritually gifted
while angry, deceitful dark folks are uplifted
