Over the years I have learned from many of my colleagues the most phenomenal insights on the psychic world, which I would not have been able to have gleaned on my own. I remember one of the first books I read, which was Linda Goodman’s infamous Sun Signs manual, which kept many a infatuated person enticed with their upcoming beau in its heyday.
This was later followed by novels like Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, and books on Eastern mysticism and astral travel. At the tender age of 14 I had to investigate why my dreams where so vivid and strange. Though the awakening began at the age of three, I really found myself more interested in orthodox and mystical religious influences from hardcovers from my parents’ university library, so it was very difficult to get perspectives that were flexible in those early years.

To understand spirituality, it is important to go back to the fundamentals. It need not be overly complicated. Simplicity is recommended. I have noted that when trying to discern or understand complex systems or ideas, really what is most needed are only a few foundational aspects. It is really that easy.
For one, we have a few inherent principles in religion that are structurally similar throughout history. This can be seen in the way they are written, starting from the cuneiform alphabet, to the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Romans, and Asia, with these tenets being spread all across the continents as the cultures migrated and merged.

You don’t have to be a geologist or gemstone expert to experience the magic of working with crystals and gemstones. Many of us light up when you mention the magic of crystals and gemstones, and we usually have a story to share about a particular stone we own or carry on us for specific intentions, healing, added strength, or protection.
How do the crystals and gemstones work for you? Well, in many magical ways. When you’re drawn to a particular stone, whether it’s the color, texture, shape, or other qualities, the attraction you feel to it is the first stage in the magical process. This attraction is actually the stone’s way of calling you to it, to make contact. Sometimes a stone can be gifted to you by someone, or one way or another just makes its way into your hands. The circumstances upon which you found it, or perhaps how it found you, is just the beginning of a new and magical relationship. Read the rest of this entry »
On March 12th there was a lovely full moon in Virgo and I was finally feeling relaxed enough to sit down and write this blog. So, I decided to write about how the Full Moon’s affects our daily lives.
The energies of the previous month were strong, and I felt work and situations piling up out of control, without time to deal with all of it. Yet, all the various projects I had going on came to fruition all at once, even those that were previously stalled, those I had almost given up on.
With the Sun moving into mystical Pisces, and a beautiful but rainy early Springtime, those dear projects finally finished or progressed into a new phase and I was once again able to calmly do my psychic work. Read the rest of this entry »
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.
