Attracting Like Minded People

secretsoftheserpent

With my last post I received several email asking how to find like-minded people in this sea of ignorance.  Most will join groups or lodges like I described.  But if you have read my work you know I am against group think. You must make your mind your own for your magic to be strong.  Other wise you are just doing someone else’s bidding.  The short answer to this is to be yourself.

Cultural Appropriation, Plant Relationships, and Nature Connection

The Druid's Garden

As a druid, someone who connects to the local landscape spiritually, I’ve gotten my fair share questions about cultural appropriation and druidry’s relationship to indigenous practices, particularly traditions indigenous to the USA. The conversation may go something like this, “So druidry, is that like Native American?” My response is, “Druids and Native Americans both honor and respect the land, and see spiritual significance in nature.  However, Druidry comes from a different cultural tradition (the British Isles, particularly Wales) and our relationship with the land, spiritual practices, and celebrations are completely different than indigenous peoples in North America”  Another thing that happens with some frequency is that I describe something on this blog, like land healing, building sacred spaces, or other such spiritual work. And someone who has never commented before leaves a comment that says something like “You don’t have a right to do that, this land belongs…

What are Secret Societies Worshipping?

secretsoftheserpent

If you have read my Friday the 13th post, you know this date has everything to do with the Knights Templar.  Friday October 13, 1307 to be exact.  This was the day that King Phillip the IV and the Vatican charged the Templars with heresy and started killing them off.  The Templars supposedly were exterminated 7 years later on March 18, 1314.   This is yet another lie of history.  You are about to find out why all these secret societies are secret and why they decided to let the masses in.

Benefits of Moringa: A Nutritional Powerhouse

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Famously called “the miracle tree” thanks to its exceptional nutritional content and therapeutic potential, moringa more than lives up to its name. Moringa offers numerous health benefits, including protecting against free radicals and promoting a strong immune system in all stages of life. Among other things, moringa supports the heart, brain, and liver, and can even give your sex drive a boost.

You might see it sold as a “superfood” in grocery and health food stores, but moringa is no passing fad. For centuries, people have consumed various parts of the moringa tree for health, energy, and other therapeutic qualities.

Moringa contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals, but, according to scientists, many of moringa’s benefits come from its phytochemicals, which include isothiocyanates, chlorogenic acid, and flavonoids like quercetin.

What Is Moringa?

Did you know that moringa is sometimes called the “tree of life”?

WILDCRAFTING: GETTING TO THE ROOT OF OUR ETHOS

Good Witches Homestead

Botany & Wildcrafting Course by Herbal Academy

We use the terms “wildcrafted” and “wild-harvested” when describing products. Specifically, this term refers to the aromatics – the essential oil scent blends that transport you to another place, another time and bring the mountains into your home.

Wildcrafting is not some trendy thing. In fact, humans have been wildcrafting since we could walk. The term, however, is new to our industry and to the vocabulary of consumers. Let’s explore what wildcrafting means to us.

Wildcrafting is the practice of harvesting things in the wild for our use. Whether that comes in the form of decorative art (think bones, branches, grasses), wild foods (think mushrooms, berries, nuts), medicinal herbs, or aromatics, wildcrafting is done for pleasure, necessity and tradition by some peoples and to our great benefit.

In our case, we harvest aromatic ingredients to scent our bath, body and home products. Wildcrafting helps us absorb the beauty of nature…

Automatic Writing! Channel Written Word From Spirit.

The Witch & Walnut

AutomaticWritingRe-Post from last year! Enjoy.

I can remember at a very young age my grandmother putting a pen in my left hand and told me to close my eyes, clear my head and let my hand move. I sat there and did what I was told but thought……. WTF are you talking about?!?!? I never actually said that to her and tried to tell her I’m right handed, but that didn’t make a difference to her. At that moment in that small kitchen at her table was the beginning of my journey into automatic writing.

Automatic writing is an ancient form of communication with your subconscious, intuition, ancestors, guides, energy around you and really anyone you want to communicate with. It is a great way to make breakthroughs, receive messages, clear out blockages, become more creative, communicate with loved ones or help someone else receive a message.

This is a…

The Midlife Crisis, An Astrology Perspective

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – THE MIDLIFE, the age of great transformation, also called the Midlife Transformation of the Transpersonal Planets. These have great effects us from 37 years old until around 43, when its completed. There are many things we cannot do in a spiritual journey or the spiritual healing journey until we reach this crisis. It sets most of us on a new direction and gives insights and perspectives that cannot be assimilated before forty.

We realize at this time of our life, that we have much work to do, much healing to do at the second and third levels of healing, and we much change. This is the time when inner child healing begins at its greatest impact. Its termed the Midlife Crisis or Midlife Transformation (depending upon its severity) both positive and negative. We may think we have control over our life and mastery until…

Crystal Empowerment For Empaths

Crystal Empowerment for Empaths / krista-mitchell.com

Are you an empath?

Are you someone who’s so sensitive to the feelings of others that you experience them as your own?

If so, you’re in good company: I’m an empath, too.

And I’ll be completely honest with you: I went through energy hell living in New York City. It’s a pressure-cooker, and I was doing spiritual healing which required me to be extra in tune.

It was overwhelming, to say the least.

It took me a looooong time to learn how to manage being an empath, but I never saw it as a liability – I saw it as a strength.

It was how I was able to tune in so powerfully to my crystals, read my clients’ energy systems, have a sensory awareness of the vibes in a space when I was doing a space clearing.

It was also how I was able to fill a room with healing presence, because yeah, empaths aren’t just receiving, they’re projecting, too.

It was a gift that I learned to nurture.

So the # of messages I get on a weekly basis from empaths asking me how they can protect themselves from other peoples’ feelings concerns me.

It concerns me because it means that they’re not in their power. They’re exposed, vulnerable, suffering. And it’s my experience that the empaths of the world are our healers, our artists, teachers, guides.

What is Love?

secretsoftheserpent

We as humans have a very distorted view of what love is.  We associate love with attraction and infatuation.  This is why everyone thinks Aphrodite is the goddess of love, when she is the goddess of physical beauty.  Love is one of those things that is very hard to describe with language.  That is why ancients used a goddess to describe it.  This post will go deep.  You will either get it or you won’t.  If you are ready you will understand.  If not, you will go on thinking love is an emotion.  Love is so much more.
