Doom and Gloom

secretsoftheserpent

What is it in the human psychology that wants to see the end of the world?  Why do we want to see the apocalypse?   Do we just love to scare the hell out of ourselves?  Is it our cultures?  Is it bred into us?  Im not trying to say that we can not do better as a human race.  Im just questioning our methods as to how we try to put information out there for people to see.  Most things are done by people who are well meaning.  When a person doesn’t think enough people are listening to them then they start this doom and gloom narrative.  For the most part its picked up by other not so well intentioned people and they use it to manipulate.

How Do I Dissolve the Ego?

secretsoftheserpent

Why do we want to satisfy me first?  Why has man given so much importance to the ego?  We have meditations to try to get rid of it or calm it down, so why must we bow to our ego’s every whim?  Is it taught to us from childhood?  Has the ego become a habit?  When one feels there is no self there is nothing, so why do we spend endless amounts of energy trying to bring it under control? Those who don’t work on ego are afraid of becoming nothing.

Why We Believe the Lies

secretsoftheserpent

Lies run so deep in this world that we take it for granted.  We accept it as normal.  We all lie like hell.  It is the major source of human stress.  Lying kills people.  Lying is neurotic.  People who lie the most become the most successful in this world.  We lie to preserve our self image. We have to act a certain way that we think we should act and will lie to preserve that image.  This post will explain why we keep believing lie after lie after lie from the people we see as leaders.

The Occult War in Plain Sight

secretsoftheserpent

I have received several emails asking me what I think is going on in the world today.    With all the things I have uncovered in history, forgive me if I do not believe anything coming from the press, politicians, priests or bankers.  Yes, there is a virus.  Yes, people are getting sick.  Yes, people are dying.  This has happened throughout the history of the world.  No matter how bad the pandemic or plague was in history, the economy was never shut down.  Ever!  The number one motto of all religions, governments and press is “Never let a good crisis goto waste”.  Time to give them a taste of my venom.

Wildcrafting Druidry: Getting Started in Your Ecosystem

The Druid's Garden

One of the strengths of AODA druidry is our emphasis on developing what Gordon Cooper calls “wildcrafted druidries“–these are druid practices that are localized to our place, rooted in our ecosystems, and designed in conjunction with the world and landscapes immediately around us. Wildcrafted druidries are in line with the recently released seven principles of AODA, principles that include rooting nature at the center of our practice, practicing nature reverence, working with cycles and seasons, and wildcrafting druidry.  But taking the first steps into wildcrafting your practice can be a bit overwhelming, and can be complicated by a number of other factors. What if you are a new druid and don’t know much about your ecosystem? What if you are a druid who is traveling a lot or is transient? What if you are a druid who just moved to a new ecosystem after establishing yourself firmly…

Physical Land Healing: How do I know what to do?

The Druid's Garden

Some years ago, I remember one influential druid speaking at a major event and saying, “The best thing you can do in nature is pick up the garbage and get out.” From a certain standpoint, this perspective makes a lot of sense. It is the same perspective held by many conservationists trying to preserve pristine lands or lands that have been replanted and are healing; the best thing that can be done is figure out how to keep people from mucking them up, pick up garbage, and leave them undisturbed. This is a perspective ultimately rooted in the desire to care for nature, to preserve nature, and to do good. Unfortunately, this perspective doesn’t really seem to provide a meaningful way to respond to today’s problems ecologically because it’s largely based on assumptions that mitigate damage rather than actively regenerate ecosystems. This perspective as a whole teaches us how to…

3 Alcohol-Based Hand Rub Recipes – Herbal Academy

Good Witches Homestead

The most important prevention measures we can take right now are staying home and practicing social distancing if leaving the house for essential work or trips to the grocery store or pharmacy—that is, staying at least 6 feet away from other people (Centers for Disease Control [CDC], 2020a). Washing hands thoroughly with soap and warm to hot water for at least 20 seconds after being in a public place, after sneezing or blowing your nose, and before eating, drinking, or handling food is also crucial to prevent the spread of the virus; however, if handwashing isn’t possible, the CDC recommends the use of an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropyl alcohol until you can wash your hands again (CDC, 2020a; CDC, 2020b).

Folks have taken this approach to heart, clearly, because commercially available hand sanitizers are in seriously short supply these days! However, with a…

A New Page In My Chronic Pain Journey

Oro Cas Reflects

My name is Oro Cas and I am a chronic pain sufferer. A fifty foot fall in my 20’s, a lightning strike at 40, and 30 years of driving tractor-trailer have taken a toll on my body and nerves. As of my last spine series, I have 3 dead discs, 2 ruptured discs, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and degenerative disc disorder. Needless to say, I am a patient at a pain clinic where over the past two years I have gone from 10mg of Oxycontin once a day to 20mg twice a day.

I’m getting close to a time where there will have to be some major decisions made. Decisions that I dread. Do I have surgery with the hope of better mobility and pain relief? The opinions from two neurosurgeons were no help. One said call me when you’re ready for surgery, the other said you have a 50-50 chance…
