NOTE:: I’m sorry for the background noise and noisy interruptions (wind, plane, etc.). It was nice when we first started recording and I didn’t realize how loud the sounds would be. I tried to make them as quiet as possible, but alas, it didn’t help too much.

Today’s episode is a bit short since I’m still getting my bearings with recording in front of a camera as well as editing the audio. My daughter wanted to be in this video too, which was perfect because I spoke about a topic that was actually inspired by a choice she made. So, why is choice important? How do I view this as a Pagan and Wiccan? How does this affect my parenting? And what is the illusion of choice?

The world seems like it’s going to sh*t. There is so much wrong happening in the United States right now, and our leaders are pointing fingers. They’re looking for scapegoats instead of trying to solve the problem. How do I view this as a Pagan? How do my spiritual beliefs affect my political ones? How does my experience with mental illness and mental health color my opinion on the atrocities taking place in the USA? Because they do. But what can you do to help? Be a good person, dammit!

We all know that there are marginalized groups out there, and being discriminated against because of your religion is no different. Sometimes you have to find ways to hide in plain sight.

If you convert to Wicca, or any other polytheistic belief system, from Christianity or another monotheistic belief system, there’s bound to be some baggage that gets leftover. Join me in this episode for an explanation of that baggage, why it sticks around, and why we need to let it go.

Candle magick can be one of those forms of magick that is often overlooked. It can be simple or complicated, colorful or not. In this episode, I discuss some basic, introductory topics regarding casting spells with candles.

  • What is candle magick?
  • Do colors matter?
  • How to perform your own candle spell?

Side note, I promise I’ll find intro and outro music that I like one day!

Pardon my rambly-ness in this episode. I even got the episode number and previous episode wrong. Its been a hell of a week, and that’s what prompted this episode.
