Atlantis

secretsoftheserpent

Atlantis is a myth that most know about.  When people find out that I am an ancient historian one of the first questions they ask me is, “Do you know anything about Atlantis?”  It does not matter of the race, culture or background of that person, they want to know about Atlantis.  What is it about Atlantis that is imbedded in our memory?  I have to be careful about what I tell people because, just like religion, most of what they know is complete wrong.  When one is not ready to hear the truth, they lash out at the messenger.

Establishing a Ritual of Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Self-Care

Good Witches Homestead

There’s something to be said about intentionally setting aside time in our hectic schedules to focus entirely on our lives, our bodies and our health (both mental, and physical).

But so often, this is easier typed than done.

I believe in our culture, there’s certain guilt about slowing down, even for a short time, especially when it’s for the sake of our own wellbeing. We’re fascinated by the hustle, by the busyness of it all, and drawn into that hamster wheel of constant productivity, for the sake of getting ahead.

But I can attest, alongside so many others, that establishing a ritual of daily, weekly, and monthly self-care, slowing down and tuning out (in order to really tune in), can greatly benefit whatever your life’s work is. Whatever that hustle is meant for.

I have struggled with establishing this routine—busyness being that back-of-the-mind itch that keeps me from slowing…

Styx

secretsoftheserpent

The River Styx gets its name from the Goddess Styx.  She was the Goddess of this river.  In the Greek myths it is said that she sided with Zeus during the Titan War.  Is this river in Greek mythology real?  Many rivers have been named after it, but what is it or where is it?  Herodotus says Styx originated near Feneos.  Herodotus has been accused of making up stories for entertainment, but he maintained he was only reporting what he was told.  One must understand that these myths and texts were written for the initiated.  For those who are not initiated, it is just a wild fanciful story.

Is This The Best We Can Do?

secretsoftheserpent

I ask my fellow human beings, Is this the best we can do?  I personally think the shape the world is in is the worst shape it can be. We live in a fake world from top to bottom.  We wake up everyday to basically do the same thing we did yesterday.  Our lives are on repeat.  We have the same thoughts, do the same activities, and basically see the same people.  Everyday.  This is what the movie Groundhog’s Day was trying to show.  Sure we take a vacation or occasionally try something new, but in no time we are right back to our routines.  Is this what it means to be Human?

The Aura Energy Field

Good Witches Homestead

The aura is an energy field that surrounds and penetrates the human body. Clairvoyants and healers describe it as an egg-shaped field of lights and colors. The aura extends beyond the body anywhere from a few inches to several feet. A special type of photography called Kirlian photography has even been able to capture the aura on film.

There are many different layers of energy in the aura, each existing at a different vibration. In order to easily remember the primary layers use the following example:

Suppose someone you know begins to exhibit angry behavior. At first, their angry energy hits the outer or spiritual layer of your aura. You shrug it off. You look at them with compassion and assume they must be having a bad day.

Now, the next time you see the same person, they are angry again. Their energy begins to filter into the mental layer…

ENCOUNTERS IN GRATITUDE AND A CHANCE TO LISTEN

Good Witches Homestead

by Guido Masé November 19, 2018

A long time ago, Anne and I traveled to Ireland. We vagabonded slowly down the west coast from hostel to hostel, over green hills to rugged seaside cliffs, stopping at standing stones and the ruins of circle forts, visiting old-growth forests left intact for hundreds of years. One day we were wandering in the southwest corner of the island with the goal of reaching one of those old forests. We crossed over a small waterfall. We walked between two ancient, massive linden trees whose roots and branches had grown together, leaving an almond-shaped opening just wide enough for us to cross. And finally, we came to the oak wood we’d been seeking. The trees were old, yes, but not very tall: craggy, leaning at odd angles, with moss covering their trunks up to the lower branches. This forest is still part of a protected area…

Contemplating Death

secretsoftheserpent

Most people do not want to think about death.  They fear it.  Some think that death is the beginning of nothingness, while most others think that they are going to heaven or hell.  With the crazy rules of dogmatic religion, we are all going to hell. They were designed that way for control.   Before patriarch religion, the ancients periodically contemplated death, but it was only to spark life into the individual.  Most of the ancients text refer to one living many lives, but you only get this life once.

Are Your Thoughts Your Own?

secretsoftheserpent

I have had several questions about our thoughts.  If I say our brains are only receivers, where do are thoughts come from?  We all have thoughts.  Good thoughts and bad thoughts.  For the majority of us, our thoughts are very negative, fearful and anxious.  We all have thoughts that keep us from falling asleep or they wake us up in the middle of the night.  We as a human race worry.  Is this just part of being human?  Thought is an energy.  You are energy.  When it comes to energy likes attract.  Whatever your energy is, you will attract those thoughts.  You can monitor this by realizing the thoughts you are having is showing the energy you have at that moment or period of time.

What is the Shadow?

secretsoftheserpent

What is the shadow of a person?  Every person on earth has one.  I’m not talking about the dark figure you see on the ground when you walk into the sunlight.  I’m talking about our shadow selves.  The self we have hidden from everyone including ourself.  Remember as kid how you would try to out run your shadow on the ground.  Well as adults we are trying to out run our shadow selves.  As a kid we could never do it and as an adult it’s just as useless.
