Where do you feel at home?

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 wrong with me. Ever since I was a child, I’ve felt like this. When I was a kid, I used to wonder what was wrong with me and why I never felt at home. Now as I’ve gotten older, I think I have it figured out. I don’t feel at home at a certain place. My house? Nope, doesn’t matter. Work? Nope, doesn’t matter either. Family’s house? Nope, that doesn’t matter at all. So what gives?

Episode 29: Pagan Perspective – Why Choice is Important

Episode 29: Pagan Perspective – Why Choice is Important

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?

Episode 28: Be a Good Person, Dammit!

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!

Be the Change

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.

Hiding in Plain Sight

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 talking about needing to hide your faith for specific job-related reasons, or public related reasons.

Lughnasadh/Lammas

Lughnasadh/Lammas

Lammas, or Lughnasadh, depending on your tradition and preference, is the first of three harvest festivals, and one of four fire festivals, from ancient Celtic traditions and beliefs. This first harvest is the harvest of grains, and we can see the fruits of the union between the God and Goddess. The word Lammas comes from the Old English word hlāfmæsse, meaning “loaf mass”, and is highly connected to the harvesting of the grains and the feasts prepared at Lammas. Traditionally, this day was celebrated with the harvesting of the first grains and a feast. The ancient peoples that celebrated this festival knew the importance, though, and we can try to get back to that.

Consulting the Tarot: 7/23/19

I’m having a sort of crisis of faith lately. It’s nothing huge, just a bit of a change in my beliefs I suppose. Anyway, it affects me emotionally and mentally right now, and I’m not sure how to handle it. I won’t go into too much detail because I plan on doing an episode regarding this situation. However, I wanted to share my tarot reading with you all.
