Dear Daughter

secretsoftheserpent

Life needs to be experienced and lived in order to be understood.  Life is not theoretical.  It is real.  It’s here.  There is pain, suffering and intense joy that needs to be experienced.  The ups and downs are life.  There are mistakes to make and traps to fall into.  All to learn.  This world is full of traps to keep you from growing.  This letter is not to make you fearful it is to keep you from falling into the traps of others.

Fix the Inner World

secretsoftheserpent

Everyone is trying to fix the outside world right now.  They believe that if they can make the world bend to their will they will feel better.  If one would just ask themselves why they do anything, they would find out it’s all about making themselves feel better.  Why do you set goals and achieve them?  Because it makes you feel good.  We are all trying to feel a state of abundance within.  All because this world tells us that we are not good enough.

Beyond Divination: Four Spiritual Uses for the Tarot

Beautiful artwork. Thanks for sharing.

The Druid's Garden

The Fool from the Tarot of TreesWhen people think of the Tarot, they often think of its primary use as a divination tool.  Tarot is an incredibly versatile tool, and now you can get hundreds of decks on practically any theme, choose from dozens of books to help you learn, and access a wide variety of free online resources.  Learning to read them as a divination method is as straightforward as picking up a book, drawing cards, and reading entries–and yet mastering them can take a lifetime.

I wanted to share a few additional ways that I’ve used the Tarot over the years to enhance my spiritual practice.  The Tarot has many uses beyond divination, and learning some of these can deepen your work with the Tarot even further. These methods can be tied directly to divination uses, help you learn the Tarot in a new way, or be used on their own. All images are…

Cult of Personality

secretsoftheserpent

In this post I will let you into a section of my mind.  Careful where you go in there it is deep and dark.  You may not find your way out.  I am what muggles  see as an introvert and I have deep empathy for the world.  Muggles may think they have empathy, but what they really have is apathy. I am called an arrogant liar, but you can not refute me.   With all that is going on the people are going crazy with materialism.  All in the name of whatever political agenda they are following.  Come in and see what I see.  You just might learn something.

Rituals and Prayers for Peace

The Druid's Garden

Peace is a fundamental part of the druid tradition. The ancient druids had roles as peacemakers and justices, and today, many druids find themselves in a position of promoting and fighting for justice and peace.  A lot of this work is happening right now: working towards for the equal rights and treatment of black, brown, and indigenous people; fighting on the front lines of the pandemic as a medical worker or essential personnel; or and trying to work for inner peace in these challenging times, just to name a few.  Given what is happening at present, it seems like a very good time to start, reaffirm, or deepen a spiritual practice that focuses on spreading peace. Thus, in this post, I’ll share a peace meditation, peace prayers, and peace rituals that you might use as part of your practice. I also think that the more of us that do the…

Birth of Truth?

secretsoftheserpent

There has never been much truth in this world.  All we have is weaponized information.  This pandemic has done to people what psychedelics usually do to someone when they take them.  It has magnified what was already there.  What the press, government and other institutions have done is start information warfare.  They are using the same playbook from history and that is they try to convince you that what you think is true about the world is the absolute truth.  They will never give you the truth.  They give you information to convince you that what you already believe to be true is true and it gives you validation for your thoughts.  They goes as far as to try to make you angry about the things you believe are true about the world.  They build a distorted picture of the world…

Embrace the Shift

secretsoftheserpent

When a major shift happens you can do one of two things, you can fight it or embrace it.  A major shift is a disruption and it forces a reaction.  We as humans are resilient.  We are not some fragile piece of glass.  Resilience is built right into our DNA.  We as a human race have bounce back from disruptions and major shifts several times in our history.  The press will have you believing we are fragile.  Because we are so resilient major shifts have brought on radical innovation.

Be Your Own Hero

secretsoftheserpent

Our mind is a pendulum.  It goes back and forth from the past to the future.  That is how your thoughts are.  Even as you are reading this your thoughts are thinking about something in the past or something in the future.  This is normal, but we need to train our mind to do that when we want it too.  Have you ever been at work or school and your mind is wandering and then snaps back into the present and you’re like “crap I don’t know what to do now”.  Happens to me all the time.  It’s important that you recognize that most of your thoughts are in the past and future.  This is just the human mind.  It’s very normal.

Ideology

secretsoftheserpent

School is not about learning.  It is about memorization.  School does not teach a person how to learn.  It just fills people’s minds with ideologies and beliefs.  Real learning is about making distinctions.  Ideology is the greatest obstacle to truth.  Ideology corrupts the world.  What is ideology?  I am going to challenge my readers to try not to be ideological about anything.  It is tough because everything can be ideological.

Confidence vs Arrogance

secretsoftheserpent

I get told all the time that I’m arrogant.   People don’t know the difference between arrogance and confidence.  They use these words interchangeably.  Most people think a confident person is arrogant.  They see arrogance as negative, so they don’t become a confident person.  There is a huge difference between someone being confident and someone being arrogant.  In this post I will show you the difference between confidence and arrogance.
