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 »
For each person who wishes to perceive the truth in life, perception is only one aspect, one variable, one moment, one memory, perhaps just that which makes up some of the grand sense of wonder and illusion that we are meant to endeavor. One does not have to endure in order to allow for mystery to give spiritual value to our lives.
True mystical value is based just on that – a value. This is based on a myriad of factors, it being our perception. Perceptions are based on our religious and family beliefs, and thus leave us in a state of comfort, a state of illusion in order to shield us from misconceptions of perhaps beliefs that may be untenable for us.

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 »
Ancestor worship is a wide-spread belief system, in both primitive and sophisticated cultures. Ancestral healing unfortunately gets very little attention these days, even though some of our patterns and energy imbalances may well stem from our genetic pool.
My first exposure to the concept of communicating with our Ancestors occurred many years ago, during initiation into the Southern African culture of divining and healing. During my training to become a Sangoma*, in a remote area in Southern Africa, time was always put aside for offering prayers to, and for consulting with the Ancestors. My mentor taught me how the Ancestor energies affected their still living relatives, and how, in most African cultures, they are seen as being our link to the spirit world.

Wizards are spell casters who learn the art of magic or sorcery through research and learning. It’s said you are not born a wizard, you become a wizard. You are born with the powers and mystical abilities that a wizard has, but to be a real wizard you have to become comfortable, skilled and not afraid to use those powers.

One of the quaintest concepts, that seemed to captivate imaginations around the turn of the 18th century, were the elements and their embodiments in the form of Elemental Spirits. These beings were the personification of the Classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
In the Middle Ages, great attention was given to these four elements in terms of diagnosis, such as the Choleric being linked to the Earth, which would be thus be linked to Taurus. The Phlegmatic was linked to the water element, or Pisces, which often would diagnose lung disorders, thus the word origin for phlegm. 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 »
Tasseography is the art of reading the tea cup or coffee cup, otherwise known as tasseomancy or tassology. It originates from the Arabic word tasse, which means ‘cup’ or ‘goblet.’ This ancient form of divination is derived by reading the patterns of the tea leaves, coffee grounds and even wine sediments.
Although it is commonly associated with gypsy fortunetellers and crazy old cat ladies, it is a mysterious and ritualistic art with long history going back to ancient Greece. Tasseography developed independently throughout Asia, the Middle East and Greece. Modern tasseography was further seen throughout Scotland, Ireland and Eastern Europe. Read the rest of this entry »
