One True Home

IMG_20180508_191420_173

We have one TRUE home…Mother Earth! When it all goes wrong, we cannot pack our bags and move some where else! This is it!
.
.
.
We are her caretakers and protectors of all life…That is how it is meant to be!!
.
.
.
As Pagans we MUST step up and be counted. Make ourselves heard! And set an example to those who do not follow our path!
.
.
.
We must not cherry pick what we do and do not protect! We must not contradict who and what we stand for by acting against the Earth and all her children!
.
.
.
Remember…Mother Earth isn’t just OUR home!! ~•●)○(●•~

You Can Heal Yourself Using The Chi Energy of Trees According to Taoist Masters…

You-Can-Heal-Yourself-Using-The-Chi-Energy-of-Trees-According-to-Taoist-Masters....jpg

For me this makes complete sense. Even before reading this small article I knew this.  Think about it; you can have the darkest of moods, but when you step into a woodland or forest, within a short time your mood will lighten.

There is something that is unmistakably magical about woodlands. The energy they are filled with is pure positivity. I will always feel emotionally and spiritually lighter once I have visited our local woodland.

I also feel that any mental and emotional fog is lifted. I can think much more clearly and I feel more spiritually alive. And there is no mistaking the energy you feel when you hug a tree (yes that’s a thing I do. I am a tree hugger and proud of it).

Hope you enjoy the article and do share your own tree healing experiences.

Trees are very powerful according to Taoist masters. Aside from absorbing carbon dioxide and turning it into oxygen, trees also have the ability to absorb negative energy and transform it into positive.

The roots of trees dig deep into Earth, the deeper their roots, the higher they rise to the skies. They absorb the energy of the Earth as well as the universal force of the sky.

Trees are considered the most spiritually advanced plant on Earth because of their constant meditation with subtle energy.

You can establish a relationship with trees so long as you understand their language. And they can help you open up your energy channels to cultivate calm, presence and vitality.

They also can benefit from you when you help them eliminate their blocks and devitalized parts. Like any other relationships, you benefit from each other by the constant cultivation of your connection….

Witchy Wisdom

Season Of The Witch

witch-black-cat-1

It has to be said that I have always been comfortable with referring to myself as a pagan and a witch. Obviously there have been times when I have “kept silent” on my true nature, much as I have about my sexuality. In my experience I have always known when and where I should say nothing. Attracting dangerous attention is frankly foolish.

But I am proud of who I am and my heritage. As witches it is time we reclaimed who we are and use our wisdom to know when to keep silent. But also not to hide either.

Are you at ease with who you are?

Below is an interesting article on this very subject…

Samhain Ancestor Rite for Families with Children

It can be very difficult, as a pagan parent, finding a suitable ritual for the whole family and Samhain is especially a beautiful  celebration because we are remembering our ancestors and of course loved ones who have returned to Summerlands or crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

So I thought it would be nice to share this article by Patti Wigington. I hope iy inspires you for this years Samhain celebrations.

If you’re raising kids in a Pagan tradition, it can sometimes be hard to find rituals and ceremonies that are both age appropriate and celebrate the aspects of the particular Sabbat. Factor in that small children tend to have a shorter attention span, and the days of standing in a circle for an hour watching someone chant are pretty much out of reach. That said, there are plenty of ways you can celebrate the different Sabbats with your children.

This ritual is designed to celebrate Samhain with younger kids. Obviously, if your children are older, or you have younger kids who are very focused and mature, you may not need a “kids ritual.” However, for those of you that do, this is a rite you can complete, from start to finish, in about twenty minutes. Also, keep in mind that you are the best judge of what your child is ready for. If he wants to paint his face, bang a drum and chant, let him do so – but if he’d rather participate silently, that’s okay too.

FB_IMG_1505637399989.jpg

Bought myself this little gem. I wanted something to do potions etc that wouldn’t allow metal to be in direct contact with the liquids and found this lovelt enamled Turkish coffee pot. Absolutely perfect and wasn’t too bad in price. Just waiting for my muslin bags now 🙂

Favourite Books

A very short post for me. It’s just a few of my Witchcraft books, three by Scott Cunningham and one by Lexa Rosean.
If you like to make potions  etc I highly recommend Scott’s ‘Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs’ and ‘Potions, Oils & Brews’. I would also recommend purchasing a couple of good identification books for wild flowers and plants and also one for herbs.
I also recommend  Lexa’s ‘Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients’ that doesn’t just include herbs, but such things as iron nails and egg (though as a vegan I’m unlikely to use egg now).
I have done a reviews of Scotts Magical Herbalism Book here!
I shall share more favourite books at a later date.
