The sacrament of baptism is a Christian ceremony of washing away ‘original sin.’ Most Christian religions believe that every soul is born into the world with such sin. It is believed that baptism must be performed, and if it is not done, and the person dies, then the spirit of that individual will go to a place called Limbo, which is described as the upper region of the state of Hell. Personally I do not buy this.
I believe very much in the Christ Spirit. He is very much alive and well, working on this planet we call Earth. I think that the Christian religion was meant to be a good thing in this world. It is good for family values, and gives children a good structure, and a sense of right and wrong. It is meant to bring a message of peace, hope and unconditional love to humanity. But I don’t feel that anyone has the right to condemn an infant to Limbo, just because his family didn’t make it to baptism yet. Read the rest of this entry »
According to folk-lore, there is a trio of female archetypes, those being the Mother, the Maiden and the Crone – the latter often being referred to as a Witch or Wise Woman. Indeed, it is in the last and final stage, i.e. post menopause, that us ladies reach our spiritual peak.
In fact, the Crone side of ourselves is, incidentally, our priestess, healer and internal warrior, should we fully embrace it. The need for direction and guidance from others is no longer required. In short, we start to live life on our terms – without the need to apologize for doing so. Read the rest of this entry »
As we finally settle into this year, many of our well-intended new year’s resolutions have already been abandoned. Yet, it is not too late. This is early part of the year is the perfect time for us to still look back, as well as make plans for the future. But where do we begin, especially as it applies to our spiritual and psychic life?
Looking spiritually inward is not quite as simple as cleaning out our closets or drawers. We may have lingering negative influences we’re not even aware of. It’s human nature to want to keep old habits instead of creating newer, healthier ones. So, as we move into the year, it’s more important than ever to make ourselves spiritually healthy.

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.

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 »
Nevertheless, manifesting is a metaphysical art that can be mastered by all people. You do not need to be part of a select group or an adept in any way, shape or form. Anyone can put this inherent power to good use in their life.
However, before you attempt to change your life for the better by implementing the art of manifestation, there are a few things that need to be borne in mind first. Read the rest of this entry »
Preparing yourself appropriately for a psychic reading will help to clear the “cobwebs” away, so you can get the most out of the session.
Before your reading, choose a quiet place where you will feel relaxed and can be alone, free from distractions. Next, make yourself feel comfortable and focused with a little ritual. For example, you could dim the lights, burn a bit of your favorite incense, or light a candle. You could simply sit in a room where you spend most of your time at home, meditate, hold a rosary, or your favorite crystal.
Breathe and relax. Relax your hands. Think about your issues, and formulate the questions that you want to ask the psychic. Try to be as specific as possible. When you ask your question, your psychic will be able to tune into your energies much more clearly. Read the rest of this entry »
In recent years there has been an avid interest in shamanism. A myriad of books, seminars and extensive training programs around the world reveal a keen exploration of indigenous cultures and their connection with Nature, their healing techniques (such as soul retrieval) and the role of power animals or totems.
Shamanism, in its classical sense, comes from the regions of Siberia and Central Asia and the term ‘shaman’ originates from the Tungusic word saman (masculine) or samana (feminine). The term shaman has been interchanged with ‘medicine man’, ‘sorcerer’, and ‘magician’ – but a shaman is so much more. The shaman is traditionally a central figure in the community: mystic, poet, healer, communicator with the unseen realm and psychopomp (leader of souls). Read the rest of this entry »
