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 »
I awoke this morning remembering a dream that felt so real. Dreams are so mysterious. Like the deep sea, there is much uncharted territory in the dream realm. My dreams are special to me and I try to listen to their messages.
I’m not alone in my fascination with the dream state – nearly every culture throughout history has valued the wisdom and spiritual depth contained in dreams. Native Americans saw dreams as another form of reality and a doorway to spiritual awareness. They valued the messages dreams conveyed and saw them as guides for the living. Many cultures have tried to interpret the important messages dreams communicate about our lives and some cultures traditionally perform sacred rituals to elicit dreams. 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 »
Getting psychic readings from the wrong people can wreak havoc in your life. Don’t trust everyone that claims to be a psychic or a medium. Not everyone has the metaphysical gifts to read into the future, or speak to departed souls on the other side.
True psychics and mediums are always empathetic to people’s needs and a reading with them should always be a calm and uplifting experience. Do genuine psychics always get it right? No, sometimes they do not. But they are always truthful, either way. The true psychic will always be completely honest with the client, not just give them stories. They will not simply tell you what you prefer to hear. And they will admit when they are not sure, or when they feel no real connection with your energy. Read the rest of this entry »
Today’s Full Moon has many names. It is known as the Lenten Moon, Chaste Moon, Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Sap Moon, The Big Famine Moon, and Worm Moon, among many other names originating from various cultures and belief systems.
March 20th was the Spring Equinox, the first day of spring. It is traditionally the day many Pagans celebrate the rebirth of the Earth. Earth is thawing and loosening itself from the cold grip of winter. New life will soon emerge and the land will grow green and fertile. What will develop into the ripened fruits of summer and autumn is still young and fresh. In March we see the fleeting virtue of innocence, the potential of the growth to come, while honoring the fleeting virtue of innocence.
Lent is a major religious observance of many Christian denominations. It begins on Ash Wednesday and covers a period of approximately six weeks before Easter Day. Its tradition is not much different from other traditions and cultures, which also view this very early spring moon as a time for repentance, giving alms to the poor, atonement and self-denial.
