Empath and the Soul

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Dimitri had asked a question on a group I was in, about changing from a mind government, to an empath government. My answer is no, because the path of the Empath is very different from everything we see in the world of mind/body and the eternal soul depends upon us to get our emotional body healed, not about group activity.
The Mind’s goal is to get into the body and silence it at will. To get it i to the present moment rather than out there in space and idealism. Anyone who has done even two years of dedicated Zen or Buddist meditation, knows how noisy and bossy the mind is. It  can be settled with practces.
The Emotional bodies on the other hand, has an evolution that is very different than mind/body, it is one of love, self love, and heal ones emotional…

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.

Plant Spirit Communication Part IV: Medicine for the Body and the Soul

The Druid's Garden

In the last few weeks, we’ve considered various ways in which we might communicate with plant spirits, work with them, and engage in spirit journeys with them. In this post, I am beginning to make the transition to talk about plant medicine and herbalism for a few weeks–both medicine of the body and medicine of the soul. I think that herbal medicine is something incredibly powerful to add to any earth-based spiritual based practice, both to keep you in good health and to create inter-dependency between you and the living earth. In order to do that, I wanted to talk today about plant spirits and the connection between medicine for the body and medicine for the soul. To do this, we’ll delve into animism and an animistic worldview as well as consider deepening plant relationships.

Amazing reishi! Amazing reishi!

Medicine of the Body

First New Moon of Autumn 2018

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phonenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings moon dreamers, thanks for returning for some more moon medicine this month. We start our second year of the Moontime Culture and the “First Moon of Autumn” starts Sunday, September 9, 2018. The Autumn Equinox is Saturday, the 22nd of September. Its been a long summer and I hope that you were able to enjoy some nature and friendships that were supportive and not too torn away into the universe or web-life. We now prepare to enter the “Season of the Night” (Autumn & Winter in Ancient Slavic prepagan times), which is the second half of the year, six Moons of healing work to focus on.

Its the time of transformation, as one season gives way to the next. In the biggest picture, the magnetic energy is slowly and steadily rising on earth and with this comes not only the final melting of the…

New Moon in Virgo ~ Opportunities for Advancement

Dear all,
I have some really great news for you — After a challenging summer, we are finally reaching calm astrological waters!
In addition to an excellent positioning of the New Moon in Virgo, we will also have the support and stability provided by Mercury and Saturn — two big players when it comes to movement, studying, learning, teaching, organization, long-term planning and communication. You may notice this as being able to do anything related to these areas with greater ease and precision.
The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th has only one challenging aspect with a planet that often brings confusion, deception, fears, and disillusionment.
However, this New Moon has many more positive aspects with several other planets whose influence can help us overcome this quite easily.
Just remember that based on your personal chart you may experience this in a variety of ways.
Generally, the atmosphere that all these planetary interactions create will be one of generosity, focus, self-confidence, optimism, increased spiritual growth, and many opportunities for positive changes . . .
The key change that you may want to focus on this month is your health, specifically how to arrange your schedule to include more wellness/energy/spiritual activities that support your well-being.
To maximize this astro-spiritual opening for change, actively focus on making new connections, expanding your circle, learning new things and growing spiritually.
Crystals to assist you with this are Labradorite, Amazonite, Turquoise, and Imperial Topaz.
For those of you who are local (Hampton Roads, VA), here are some news — send me an email back if you are interested:
1) Early Morning Beach Meditation, Saturday, September 15, $10
2) Early Morning Equinox Meditation, Saturday, September 22, $10
3) There are just a couple of spots left for my Crystals for Women Workshop, on Saturday, September 22, 4pm to 6pm, Williamsburg, VA, so if you are interested, please go here and register right away!
4) Brand new workshop — Crystals for Vitality, Energy Protection, and Boundaries, on Saturday, September 29, 4pm to 6pm , Williamsburg, VA. Registration and more details here
Till next time,
Stay happy and healthy!

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…
