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.

I have all sorts of posts about how to do your Magic, but I have only touched on what would make you a good Witch or Wizard.   These guides will help you whether you do ritual magic or not.  Magic is all about believing in yourself. It is a mindset.   If you can’t believe in yourself,  then  magic is not for you.  Here are my 18 guides that will help you believe in yourself and make you a very powerful Witch or Wizard.  If you have anything to add, then leave it in the comment section.  I would love to hear them.  Enjoy!

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.

Elen of the Ways – Magical Deer Woman

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –I made the special Talisman with the pink encircling the Reindeer in 2017 – to honor the completion of my karmic journey, to the Deer Woman who mysteriously appeared in my waking life so long ago, and to my karmic debt to Venus. This week, my apprentice William and I were talking about “Elen of the Ways” because he said her name just came to him out of the blue and he had never heard of her.  I shared with him the day my first initiation began as a young woman, with a sacred Deer Woman who appeared to me in the waking on August 16, 1987.

Elen of the Ways is one of the original magical Deer Women, the British Venus who in earlier times was a Deer Goddess, Guardian of the Sacred Waters, Streams and Rivers, which carry the wisdom of woman and…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

secretsoftheserpent

Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t have as much symbolism as The Force Awakens, but the symbolism it has goes much deeper.  It is showing the transaction that is happening in our world right now.  The dying off of the old patriarch ways and the beginning of the new sacred feminine.   If you have not seen the movie I am giving you a spoiler alert.  I will show what happens, so if you don’t want to know the ending, see the movie first.

This is How the Ancients lifted the Megalithic Blocks

This is how the Ancients lifted the megalithic blocks …

secretsoftheserpent

Many people have tried to figure out how the ancients lifted those megalithic blocks.   Some of these stones weigh more than 2000 tons.  The blocks on the Great pyramid weigh about 400 tons each and there are millions of them.  For those who  don’t know, 1 ton equals 2000 lbs.  400 tons is 800,000 lbs a block, 2000 tons is 4 million lbs a block.  Our machinery today would struggle to lift these blocks.  To get to the bottom of how they built the megaliths, we have to look at one major problem science likes to lie about.  That problem is the dinosaurs.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to say they used the dinosaurs to lift the rocks like on the Flintstones.  Though that makes mores sense than most theories.

Why it is Awesome to be a Witch or Wizard

By secretoftheserpent

secretsoftheserpent

I know when you say the word Witch most of the masses gasp.  Muggles think Witches are evil or there is something psychologically wrong with them.  In this patriarchal society, the word Wizard does not bring up the same fearful thoughts.  You must put the word bad, evil or dark in front of  Wizard before it starts to scare muggles.  In general the masses just think the guy is probably nuts.  If you are a true Witch or Wizard, other Witches and Wizards will know who you are and they will respect you.  The ones who control the masses and muggles know who you are and they are not going to mess with you.  They don’t want the world slipping into another dark age.  When they screw up, they need the magical people to fix it.  They know that a…
