Signs of Awakening

secretsoftheserpent

Awakening is not spontaneous.  It does not just happen.  Awakening is building up something.  It takes a long time to build something up.  Most people have this idea that Enlightenment is instantaneous.  When in truth enlightenment is a life long process.  If you are truly waking up, the steps you are taking will not give you temporary excitement.  They will be the foundation you build your awakened life on.  It has become a fad today to think you are ‘Woke’.  When in actuality they are the furthest thing from being awake.  Here are the top signs that you are awakening.

Dealing with Muggles

secretsoftheserpent

Dealing with muggles is one of the hardest things Witches and Wizards have to do.  Even if a muggle does not know you do magic they still see you as somewhat of a threat.  Muggles will keep you from living your dreams and want you to stay down with the rest of the herd.  They try to trigger you and make you feel like crap. Muggles are everywhere.  Most Witches and Wizards will tell you to just cut them out of your life.  It’s as simple as that.  This is the reason most Witches and Wizards are alone.  It is not that simple.  No matter how strong a magical person you are, you are still human and humans are social beings.

Elen of the Ways – Magical Deer Woman

Soul Dreamers

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…

What I am about to show you is advanced.  Not many will get it and even fewer will believe it, but belief is not needed for something that is true.  Every genius and artist of this world knows what I am about to show you.  Some may know what it is others may not.  Patriarch religions have stolen it and said it is the voice of god and only priests can hear it.  Well, I am about to reveal a huge secret that every religion and government does not want the masses to know about.  I call it……The Voice of the Goddess.

A Druid’s Guide to Connecting with Nature, Part I: A Framework

A Druid’s guide to connecting with Nature – Part I:  A Framework

The Druid's Garden

A lot of people find druidry because they want to “connect” with nature.  They want to attune to nature, feel part of it, gain knowledge and wisdom about it. But what does “connecting” to nature look like in practice?  Going out in the woods and feeling good?  Knowing the name of trees?  Walking with sacred intent in a natural place?  Spending time in nature?  All above the above? And so, over the next few posts, I want to spend more time with the concept of “connecting to nature” and share some strategies for what people can do to connect with nature in a multitude of ways.

As I’ve written about earlier, part of what I see as the core of druidry as a spiritual tradition is the work of “connection.” In that post, I talked about connecting to nature, connecting to the spirit, and connecting to the creative practices as…

Mystery School

secretsoftheserpent

What is Mystery School?  All the schools today are promising ancient knowledge and wisdom.  How can they offer it if they don’t even know it themselves?  Thanks to religion and governments, there is very little ancient knowledge left in this world.  Just like Magic, I will take the mysticism out of Mystery School.

Alchemy is yet another tradition that has been taken literally. Most think Alchemy is turning lead into gold. They actually think that certain alchemist turned lead into gold and became rich. Alchemy is a philosophical tradition. It used to be very close to magic. Witches and Wizards are known for mixing chemicals and ingredients to make things like medicines, potions, poisons and antidotes. Alchemy is where we get the word chemistry.

Free Will

secretsoftheserpent

 

Free Will is something that has been grossly misinterpreted. Most see it as making a decision or choice without outside influences. Problem is that we all have been programmed since the day we were born. How are you going to make a decision that is yours and yours alone when nothing in your mind is original? Did you just decide one day that you were going to get up and go to school? Did you decide what religion you were going to be? Men, did you decide you had to be mister macho? Women, did you decide you had to wear make up to be visually pleasing for men? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the answer is no.
