Social Conditioning

secretsoftheserpent

In this post Im going to show you a few things that conditions you.  In the secret society upper echelons they talk about the sleeping masses.  It is where the term ‘wake up’ comes from.  Someone thinks they have it all figured out and they are woke.  Are you woke or did you just move over into another sleeping position?  Everything in this world is to distract you from your potential!  In the last year or so people think the world has gone crazy.  Im going to let you in on a little secret.  The world has always been crazy!  It just took what happened for most others to see it.  Unless we raise our consciousness we will stay crazy.  Seeing what controls you is the only place to start.

Why Magic isn’t for Everyone

secretsoftheserpent

We humans do not like the unknown. We either will try to find out or we will let it go. The unknown is why we start rumors and gossip. It’s why so called conspiracy theories are started. We have to have a reason for everything. We need to understand. We want others to think the way we do. Religions people pray for others. Political people shame others. Corporations, governments and media use propaganda to influence others. We need to ask ourselves, “If we can influence others can they not influence us too?”

Corn Moon Full Moon Ritual | Creating an Abundance Bowl

Happy Full Corn Moon!

The Corn Moon represents a time of abundance and prosperity. It often falls around the first harvest of the summer season.

This full moon can create some tensions in relationships and partnerships due to the moon Quincunx Venus and Venus Opposite Jupiter. This can bring up some challenges between you and your partnerships if there is an imbalance of support.

The moon opposite Jupiter can cause overindulgence or escapism to take place. So use caution and awareness in your behavior right now.

The moon in Aquarius can increase your desire for freedom, improvement and progress. You might feel open to new ways of reaching your goals or intentions while keeping your eye on the future. It might be hard to stick to a schedule right now, but don’t let that stop you.

Go with the flow and celebrate your personal freedom by trying new things and celebrating where you are at. If you don’t take time to celebrate the small things, the small things can’t turn into bigger things!

For this full moon, we wanted to put together a spell to help open you up to abundance in your life. This is a passive spell, meaning you do it one night and then leave it on your altar until the intention manifests.

CREATING SPACE FOR SPIRIT TO ENTER: CRYSTALS + INTERMITTENT SILENCE

Creating Space for Spirit to Enter by Krista Mitchell / www.krista-mitchell.com

I recently read an article in a health magazine about intermittent silence: a practice you can do in as little as 10 minutes per day to allow your mind to pause and rest.

You close your mouth and your eyes, and simply listen to the sounds around you while silently watching your thoughts.

This gives your brain a break from processing, thereby reducing the effects of overstimulation (including stress or feelings of overwhelm).
Researchers are now saying that this practice can play a significant role in improving our health, well-being, and spirituality.

This practice appealed to me for two reasons: One, it’s simple, no meditation skills required, and two, the stones have taught me that silence creates a space where Spirit can enter.

One of the core teachings shared by the stones in my recent Light Walker course was that, when we enter into a place of inner silence, we become grounded in the light of our soul and we open gateways to Spirit.

Spirit comes from the Latin spiritus, which means breath/spirit. In silence, we breathe, and Spirit enters us on the breath.

Energies and consciousness can move into a space of silence, within which we can then experience transformation, healing, or enlightenment.

It is an exceptionally powerful practice, one that helps bring us back into alignment with our true selves, and opens us up to the Universe and the Divine.

It also brings us into our sovereignty – in other words, back into our power.

So with intermittent silence, even if you just take 10 minutes to shut your brain down and breathe, you’re allowing Spirit to enter and you’re grounding in the light of your soul.

Summer Savory – Herb of the Month

The Herb Society of America Blog

By Maryann Readal

Satureja_hortensis_Prague_2011_3 by Karelj via wikimedia commonsIt is summer and a perfect time to learn about summer savory, Satureja hortensis. If you have this spicy herb growing in your garden, plan to start using it this summer. It is an easy-to-grow, low-growing annual with white to pale pink flowers and narrow leaves. When in full bloom, the plant looks to be “covered with snow” (Clarkson, 1990). Summer savory requires full sun and good drainage, and can easily be started from seed. It may reseed if given enough sun and water. The leaves are very fragrant and have a warm, peppery taste, which is stronger before the plant flowers. Trim summer savory throughout the summer to encourage new growth. The leaves dry easily and can be stored for later use. Winter savory, Satureja montana, is its stronger, perennial cousin.

Like mint, sage, rosemary, thyme, and oregano, summer savory is in the Lamiaceae…

Sacred Trees in the Americas – Eastern Sycamore (Plantaus Occidentalis) – Magic, Medicine, Ecology and Uses

The Druid's Garden

The glorious sycamore tree! The glorious sycamore tree!

Here in Western Pennsylvania, we have a wonderful set of scenic rivers that lend themselves to kayaking, whitewater rafting, and overnight kayak camping trips. This is one of my favorite pastimes, especially as climate change has had the tick population skyrocket in the last 10 or so years and pushed us into more heatwaves. One of the quintessential features of our waterways here are the Sycamore trees. Sycamores are easy to spot even at a distance: the mottled bark, dark on the bottom and giving way in patches to light white tips; the craggy and interesting growth formation, making the trees appear whimsical and distinct. As you kayak through many parts of Western PA on our larger rivers, you will encounter these little islands that are held there by many old, weathered and small sycamores.  As you drive through the countryside, you will find many river…

The Princess and the Pea

secretsoftheserpent

Princess and the Pea is a fairy tale we all heard as children. It also went by the title, The Real Princess. Here is yet another story everyone tries to give meaning to. Hans Christian Andersen was the writer of several esoteric fairy tales. All his stories he said he heard as a child. Andersen fairytales were about the mind and the inner journey. The Princess and the Pea is no different. Calling this a story about spoiled brat aristocrats, sensitivity, marrying the right person, or any other nonsense is simply false.
