Communication is important in everything that we do. Whether we’re communicating with a boss, a family member, a child, or a friend – we need to be able to openly say what we feel and think. This is true in our mundane lives as well as our spiritual ones. One aspect of communication that often […]
I feel like I’m going to become a broken record here with my talks and ideas about sustainability and green living, but you know what? I don’t care. I’ve learned so much about the harm that’s being done to our environment for (mostly) capitalistic exploitation and convenience. Why? I came from a generation that’s used […]
September 20-23 (Northern Hemisphere)March 19-22 (Southern Hemisphere) Mabon is the second of the three Celtic harvest festivals. It is also the second equinox, meaning that the dates will vary by year depending on the alignment of the Earth and its rotation. At this time of the year, the days and nights are equal in length, […]
But why do we as a species tend to shy away from fear? Now keep in mind that I’m talking about a very specific kind of fear here. I’m not talking about fearing for your life/limb/etc. What I’m talking about is the fear of change. The fear of movement. The fear of trying new things.
I crochet. And like most people that crochet, I am addicted to buying yarn. Now, instead of buying new from the store all the time, I like to buy secondhand from thrift shops and Goodwill, things like that. I always have. For one, it’s cheaper. Two? It’s better for the environment if I buy what […]
Tarot is a very useful tool for those of us who practice the art of divination. If you’re just learning tarot, then this lesson is for you! When we’re learning something new, it takes practice, and the tarot is no different. You should practice as often as possible, get a feel for your cards, get to know their energy and attitude (yes, cards can have an attitude), and start learning the different meanings behind each one.
I constantly suffer from a feeling of homesickness, but why? It doesn’t matter where I am – even if I am at home – I still get the feeling of homesickness in the pit of my stomach. Now, it doesn’t happen every day, but it happens often enough that I used to think something was […]
I never realized how much tension I hold in my body until I meditated this morning. I’ve been having issues with my shoulders and neck causing me pain and stiffness – probably because of sitting behind a computer screen most of the day. I’ve been trying to add a regular meditation routine to my day […]
We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.
Sometimes, practicing your craft and your faith will require hiding in plain sight. This can be for several reasons, but the most common is safety and professionalism. Now, I’m not talking about kids hiding things from their parents or guardians. That’s a different topic and one I will touch on at a later day. I’m […]
