The Plant Spirit Oracle Project

The Druid's Garden

Spirit of the Oak! Spirit of the Oak from the Plant Spirit oracle!

As we’ve been exploring over the last few weeks, plant spirit communication can take many forms.  The rustle of leaves outside of your window, the inner knowing, or the song a plant sings to you as you honor it for the harvest. These simple messages weave a complex landscape beyond what we can sense with our fives senses, and invite us deeper into the mysteries of the earth and all living beings. And as we’ve explored, the voices of the plants, the spirits of the plants, take a number of forms and can appear to each of us uniquely. What is clear is that the more that we open ourselves up to understanding them, honoring them, and working with them, the more connection we have with the living earth in her many forms.

Part of the reason I’ve been sharing so…

Religion

secretsoftheserpent

Lets take a look at the definition of Religion: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny, the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a god or gods, a pursuit of a belief or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance. I just summarize it by saying it is anything outside of you that you let control your mind.  Those of you who know me know I am not against being spiritual.  Spirituality is figuring out the truth of reality and trying to grasp it.  Trying to find the truth of the universe, nature and ourselves and bringing it all together.

Say NO to Witch School

There were many times in my youth I thought about ‘witch school’ with people who were supposedly reputable, but something always stopped me. Sometime later it would come out that they weren’t so reputable after all. Maferefun to my ancestors for their protection.

The Witch & Walnut

say no! to witch schoolI hope you all have had a wonderful long weekend Holiday.

I recently received an email from someone asking if they should attend Witch classes. I do hope you see this post, I attempted to email you a response but continued to get a failure message regarding the email address.

So here I am answering your question as it is a rather common question. My standard response to this is No.

I urge you to ask yourself a few questions before depositing your money and time into a Witch class.

  1. Why do you want to take the class/program/course/whatever?
  2. Do you think it will make you a Witch?
  3. What can they teach you, that you cannot learn for yourself?
  4. What are your expectations of this course?
  5. What do you want to achieve from this course?
  6. What qualifies this person/people to teach this course?

There is sooooo much information out there and…

Plant Spirit Communication Part III: Spirit Journeying

The Druid's Garden

Plants have been teachers and guides to humans for millenia. Deeply woven into our own DNA are receptors for certain plants and plant compounds. Our ancestors understood this, and in different parts of the world, cultivated thousands of medicinal plants, healing plants, teacher plants, for use on mind, body, and spirit. While the physical plant can offer much to our bodies in terms of healing, strengthening, and support (which is the basis of herbalism practice), plant spirits can offer the same thing to our hearts and spirits.  While there are lots of ways you might go about doing this, one useful tool is to enage in plant spirit journeys.  This is the third post in my plant spirit communication series; if you haven’t yet read the first two posts, go here and here.

Journeying is a catch all term that describes “inner” experiences that people have where they go…

Loneliness

secretsoftheserpent

Loneliness is the number one reason people decide Magic is not for them.  They think that being around people is the cure for loneliness.  There are so many people today who have not even heard of real Magic and they are lonely.  With Seven billion people on the planet today, why do people feel so damn lonely?  The last thing you need is the company of a bunch of walking zombies.  Loneliness is from on inner emptiness.  You have not met your true self yet.

Plant Spirit Communication, Part II: Communication in Many Forms

The Druid's Garden

I remember taking a drive with some friends and friends-of-friends some years ago. As we were driving through a really nice forest preserve with some old trees, one of my friends in the car said, “There’s so much money there in the trees, some of them would be worth more than $1500.” He went on to talk about how his family had recently logged their property and earned over $25,000. Other people in the car jumped in and talked about the forest’s beauty and argued against him; and I just listened. Finally, I responded and said, “Every living being has a spirit. I hope that forest stands forever. They deserve to live as much as you or I.” Before this conversation had started, I was listening to the singing of that forest, so happy, so safe to be preserved. This experience stayed with me, and was a good reminder about…

Elen of the Ways – Magical Deer Woman

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –I made the special Talisman with the pink encircling the Reindeer in 2017 – to honor the completion of my karmic journey, to the Deer Woman who mysteriously appeared in my waking life so long ago, and to my karmic debt to Venus. This week, my apprentice William and I were talking about “Elen of the Ways” because he said her name just came to him out of the blue and he had never heard of her.  I shared with him the day my first initiation began as a young woman, with a sacred Deer Woman who appeared to me in the waking on August 16, 1987.

Elen of the Ways is one of the original magical Deer Women, the British Venus who in earlier times was a Deer Goddess, Guardian of the Sacred Waters, Streams and Rivers, which carry the wisdom of woman and…

What I am about to show you is advanced.  Not many will get it and even fewer will believe it, but belief is not needed for something that is true.  Every genius and artist of this world knows what I am about to show you.  Some may know what it is others may not.  Patriarch religions have stolen it and said it is the voice of god and only priests can hear it.  Well, I am about to reveal a huge secret that every religion and government does not want the masses to know about.  I call it……The Voice of the Goddess.

Perspective

secretsoftheserpent

The single most important thing in your life, when it comes to Magic, is your Perspective.  Whatever you have been conditioned to believe is your Perspective.  Perspective is a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Your Perspective is how you perceive something.  Perspective is influenced by a number of factors:  experience, beliefs, judgements, personal values, information or lack of, and our needs and desires.  Just about everything that goes on in your life is determined by your Perspective.  This post is not about gaining a positive Perspective on the world, truly enlightened or awake people know this world is messed up. If your Perspective is positive on everything, than you will never fix anything.  This post is about you being aware of your Perspective to help your Magic.
