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.

Going into the Age of Aquarius

secretsoftheserpent

There is always a time when the old becomes outdated or just doesn’t work anymore.  That which was either forced upon people or propagated on the people is being outgrown.  A new horizon opens up.  Most people will be fearful of the changes coming.  They will fight to keep the old.  They don’t want to let it go.  I’m not talking about something like styles that change over time or political changes.   I’m talking about a true awakening change that will change the world forever.  The magnitude so strong that it will change the very core of the human race.  This change began within the last century and is getting stronger every passing day.  Whether a ruler, political figure or anyone else does not agree, they can not stop it.  It is written in the stars.  Literally.

Witches and Wizards Make Great Friends

secretsoftheserpent

Witches and Wizards understand the journey of this life will be full of mistakes and failures, but they don’t let that stop them.  They learn from their mistakes and failures.  Most don’t want to deal with the bad, they only want the good.  We live in a world of duality, you can’t have one without the other. If you can’t take someone at their worst you don’t deserve them at their best.  Witches and Wizards know this and is a big reason to have them as a friend.  They know exactly what you have gone through because they have been there themselves. If you have gone through the underworld and find yourself vibrating at a whole new level, but are wondering if a Witch or Wizard would make a good friend, then this post is for you.  Let’s face it, Witches and Wizard have…

Mary Magdalene

secretsoftheserpent

Mary Magdalene is one of the most demonized women in the history of the world.  Why?  Even woman of the world call her a prostitute and hoar without even asking why.  The church has many things to hide with her and that is the first clue as to why she was demonized.  If the truth got out about her, the fairy tale version of Christianity would crumble.  The truth about her is slowly coming out.  Hopefully I can speed things up a bit.

Default Mode

secretsoftheserpent

What is your default mode? What are your core beliefs?  What defines you?  The default mode for most people was set when they were young kids.  Our experiences with parents and teachers is usually what sets our default mode.  They are our core beliefs and assumptions we have put into our subconscious our entire life.  This post is going to go deep and will get you took look deep into your underworld.  Most will find out that they are living the same life as their parents because their default mode was set when they were very young by them.  Your default mode is in your subconscious and that is what runs your life.  Magic is about changing the default mode to a mode that suits you as an individual.

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.

The Druid’s Prayer for Peace: Shifting from Exploitation to Nurturing as a Spiritual Practice

The Druid's Garden

Working with the land, in harmony and peace Working with the land, in harmony and peace

One of the things I’m hoping to do on this blog, in addition to my usual “how to” posts, permaculture, and tree work, is give us a set of working tools and philosophical lenses through which to see and interact in the world.  Today’s post does just this–explores two concepts underlying much of industrial civilization and various reactions to it, and does so with a distinctly druidic lens.

In The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture, Wendell Berry discusses two approaches to living and inhabiting the world–the practice of exploitation and the practice of nurturing. Berry wrote The Unsettling of America in the 1970’s as a small family farmer’s response to the rise of “Big Ag” and industrialized food systems. The book was truly visionary, and, if read today in 2015, rings even more true than it did in the 1970’s. Berry…

Plant Spirit Communication Part III: Spirit Journeying

The Druid's Garden

Plants have been teachers and guides to humans for millenia. Deeply woven into our own DNA are receptors for certain plants and plant compounds. Our ancestors understood this, and in different parts of the world, cultivated thousands of medicinal plants, healing plants, teacher plants, for use on mind, body, and spirit. While the physical plant can offer much to our bodies in terms of healing, strengthening, and support (which is the basis of herbalism practice), plant spirits can offer the same thing to our hearts and spirits.  While there are lots of ways you might go about doing this, one useful tool is to enage in plant spirit journeys.  This is the third post in my plant spirit communication series; if you haven’t yet read the first two posts, go here and here.

Journeying is a catch all term that describes “inner” experiences that people have where they go…

Loneliness

secretsoftheserpent

Loneliness is the number one reason people decide Magic is not for them.  They think that being around people is the cure for loneliness.  There are so many people today who have not even heard of real Magic and they are lonely.  With Seven billion people on the planet today, why do people feel so damn lonely?  The last thing you need is the company of a bunch of walking zombies.  Loneliness is from on inner emptiness.  You have not met your true self yet.
