The 12 Chakra’s

Good Witches Homestead

You may be familiar with the 7 major chakras of the human body. But did you know that some chakra systems count 12 or more chakras? In order to enhance your understanding of the energy body, it is essential to know your 12 chakras. Familiarity with the 12 chakra system adds depth, context, and appreciation for your understanding of how chakras work and how to best balance energies in your life.

WHAT IS THE 12 CHAKRA SYSTEM?

The idea of a 12 chakra system is considered relatively new. As much as one may appreciate simplicity in learning about the chakras, there is no unique or unified understanding of the 12-chakra system to this day.  The knowledge about the 12 chakras mostly comes from modern perspectives expressed by contemporary healers and energy workers.

Put simply, there are 2 main types of configurations presented in modern healing schools of thoughts: The 12 chakras are located either both inside and…

This is Why We Suffer

secretsoftheserpent

Why do we suffer?  To put it simply, because we keep running from ourselves.  We keep thinking that our inner being is evil.  We hide our true selves from others because what is down there is evil or wrong.  It does not go with what society wants.  To accept oneself completely is one of the most difficult things to do.  Once you have accepted yourself you have become whole psychologically.  You have become a Goddess or God.

The Druid’s Garden: Principles of Sacred Gardening

The Druid's Garden

Part of my own Druid's Garden! Part of my own Druid’s Garden!

One of the greatest blessings of gardening and growing things is the deep energetic connections that you can develop with plants. When I grow a pepper in my garden, I have developed a relationship with that plant from the time I planted the seed in February, where I tend it and keep it sheltered from the winter weather, to the planting and mulching of that small pepper in late May. This relationship continues as I nurture it into maturity throughout the summer, where flowers and the actual peppers start to emerge. I monitor that pepper plant for insects and disease and do what I can to ensure its success. Finally, I watch the peppers grow large and fat in the heat of the summer. At that point, I have an eight-month relationship with that pepper plant. When I eat the pepper in late August, I know…

Ego’s Mask

secretsoftheserpent

Pretend you are going to see a movie .  You want to lose yourself in the movie, so the actors need to do a good job to make you think that what you see on the screen is almost real.  That is the sign of a great actor or actress, one who gets you lost in the show.  They get you on the edge of your chair in anxiety, weeping or roaring with laughter.  They almost convince you that the show is real.  That is the greatness of the art of movies, to make the audience lose themselves in the show.  Each and every one of you are in your own movie.  You are playing the part so well you have taken yourself in completely and are fulled by your own act.  You will never admit it because that would give your…

Healing with the 13 Moons of Nature’s Seasons and Her Bird Tribe Women

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –  This is my personal capsulized short share of how I completed my fated life this lifetime as a dreamer (shaman), to return the 13 moons of the original prehistory lunar tribe of woman and brought it into a real practice and now this year offer it to the general public. The 13th Moon is a cyclical event, and she balances out the yearly seasons by appearing in cycles, but not every year. My Lunar Calendar that put together is the basis of my free lunar work-study here at Elder Mountain Dreaming, and also my life. I couldn’t really share this until the last moon, that 13th moon appeared as a real final ending to my fate. She is the mystery of the 13 moons.

This is because for millions of years we lived by the lunar seasons with mother earth and the 13 moons…

The Druid's Well

And not a drop to drink? No, sorry, wrong poem.

Sometimes it can be a bit hard for folks to wrap their heads around how a person can have a devotional practice without having a patron, per se, or at least being henotheistic or monist for that matter.

I’m one of those rare, blessed writers in the blog-o-sphere who gets passed around from unseen critter to unseen critter–usually within the same couple of cultures mind you, but I definitely am poly when it comes to my spirits. It’s sad when accusations of “spirit collecting” or “Poké-god” get tossed around. I don’t doubt that there are some people who are always moving onto the next best Being, but that’s not what I see from the majority of my cohort.

The reality (or my operating reality at any rate) is that we are surround by multitudes of spirits.  Here are a few…

New Moon in Pisces…

Good Witches Homestead

Today at 8:04 am PST (11:04 am EST) we have a New Moon in Pisces. Grandmother Moon moved into the sign of Pisces this morning at 12:11 am PST (3:11 am EST).  Pisces Moon energy is fruitful, feminine, cool and moist.

This is the last New Moon of the Astrological Year ~ the New Year for Astrology begins with the New Moon in Aries.

Pisces is a feminine, water sign. She is ruled by the dreamy, romantic, nostalgic, magical planet of Neptune! The Moon and Neptune are in charge of fluids ~ both planetary and bodily. Neptune and Pisces also rule the feet, toes, and the lymphatic and endocrine systems.

We have four planets in Pisces right now: the Sun, Moon, Neptune, and Mercury. Three feminine planets: Mercury the Queen of communication and leadership, the Moon, our Wise Woman guiding us to trust our truth and authenticity, and Neptune the Mermaid Goddess nudging…

CRYSTALS FOR MERCURY RETROGRADE + THE PISCES NEW MOON

Crystals for Mercury Retrograde + the Pisces New Moon

We have a sun and moon in Pisces, Mercury went retrograde at 1:19pm ET today, AND, for some lucky countries, there’s also a time zone change happening at 2am ET this Sunday…

This is going to be fun! 🤪😱🤯🤬😵

My advice to the whole planet for the next 23 days: GROUND! GROUND! GROUND!

While many people focus on the negatives when in Mercury retro, there are a lot of positive aspects, but in order to benefit from them you need to be able to stay grounded and go with the flow.

Best crystals for this: crystals that link the intuitive power of the 3rd eye chakra with the grounding and stabilizing power of the root chakra.

Your intuition is going to be very powerful during this Piscean time, anyway, but by grounding its guidance in your root chakra it will be easier for you to follow it and be guided through this phase smoothly.

Feeling centered and grounded in your root chakra is also what will help you to feel more confident and empowered in going with the flow, and to help you keep on top of things.
