Wildcrafting Druidry: Getting Started in Your Ecosystem

The Druid's Garden

One of the strengths of AODA druidry is our emphasis on developing what Gordon Cooper calls “wildcrafted druidries“–these are druid practices that are localized to our place, rooted in our ecosystems, and designed in conjunction with the world and landscapes immediately around us. Wildcrafted druidries are in line with the recently released seven principles of AODA, principles that include rooting nature at the center of our practice, practicing nature reverence, working with cycles and seasons, and wildcrafting druidry.  But taking the first steps into wildcrafting your practice can be a bit overwhelming, and can be complicated by a number of other factors. What if you are a new druid and don’t know much about your ecosystem? What if you are a druid who is traveling a lot or is transient? What if you are a druid who just moved to a new ecosystem after establishing yourself firmly…

The Energies of April 2020

Good Witches Homestead

Energies of April, Super Full Moon, the Influence of Aries, Planetary Reset, Spiritual Awakening, Meditation.

The cosmic line-up for April is focussed on providing exactly the right dynamics to encourage further transformation and planetary evolution.

The driving force behind this potent energy is the conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn which is exact on April 4th. This is a call for deep energy cleanse and a request for soul growth both individually and collectively. Pluto is calling for permanent change and Jupiter is providing the doorway into the expansive new possibilities that are available through that process of transformational change.

There is a potent opportunity here to move into a completely new level of soul power, one that we have not been able to embody for many lifetimes. You might feel this as a surge of soul force flowing through you, possibly moving your life into a different trajectory…

Number 23 Symbolism

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder – Article can be shared in its entirety with link and credit. I do not work with sun medicine wheels, I work with the Lunar Wheel within its 13 Moon’s two  Seasons: The Season of Night (Autumn/Winter) and the Season of Fire (Spring/Summer). This is a much older way of living, older than paganism and falls back into the timeless shaman or nature’s eras of earth when there was no time (pre-history ie pre his story).

Life was divided into four seasons and those four seasons were divided into the solstice and equinox yearly half moon (night) and half sun (fire) earth. I have lived by this under the 13 moon cycles for most of my life in my folk healing work, my collective work and my life as a dreamer (last level of a shaman). 

Since I live by the moon and not the sun…

CRYSTAL HEALING TIPS FOR MOMENTS OF PANIC, FEAR, AND ANXIETY

Crystal Healing Tips for Moments of Panic, Fear, Anxiety / www.krista-mitchell.com

Hello loves!

I hope, as you read this, that you are all safe and well.

Everything hit me like a wave at the end of last week. I felt devastated, afraid, heartbroken, uncertain. Cried my eyes out. Couldn’t work for couple of days. Just went into extreme self-care mode.

I let the feelings wash through me. I allowed myself to grieve. Then I turned to my crystals, my faith, family, and spiritual practice for support.

I’m sharing this because we ALL need love and support right now. We also all need to honor how we’re feeling.

I had one of those 3am moments of what I call “electric fear”. I woke up with that fear energy coursing through my body. I put my hands on my solar plexus to try and calm myself, and then I heard my guidance say:

“It’s ok to feel the fear. It’s ok to feel what you’re feeling. But remember that you can CHOOSE how to respond.”

In that moment, I felt love and courage flow through me.

The key is to not seek to suppress what we’re feeling. We’re feeling our feelings for a reason

It’s how we respond that will help determine how we all pull through this.

I’ve put together some simple crystal suggestions plus crystal healing tips to help provide some of that support you may be needing.

The Basalt Floor at the Great Pyramid

secretsoftheserpent

On the east side of the Great Pyramid is a large floor of black basalt stone.  This is a perfectly smooth black pavement that would have represented immense prestige and incalculable wealth.  The stone quarry is in Thebes, so it was very important to Upper Egyptian royalty.  This floor was as smooth as polished ice and studded with small silica inclusions that resembled stars in the night sky.  What was going on here?  Why was there a black smooth basalt floor next to the Great Pyramid?  No one can give me an answer.  I figured it out, so it’s time to illuminate the world once again.

New Moon in Aries Lunar Report | Entering the Planting Moon Cycle

 

This is our first new moon of the new season, and we are all in some new and uncharted territory with the current situation going on in the world right now! Many locations are under quarantine and lockdowns right now… It is easy to feel anxious around this situation, and we are being asked to stay indoors, this is also an opportunity to go within.

Now is the perfect time to meditate and visualize the outcome we are wanting to see.

The Planting Moon cycle is a time for planting seeds both literally and metaphorically. This new moon holds potent energy, so plant some intentions that are for your greater good and for the greater good of all!

Songs of the Soul’s Awakening

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder – Our new Social Distancing today is what an awakening person or one who has awakened since the 1980s with their soul breakdowns, must do naturally. Its always been that way for thousands of years, especially for Empaths (with or without there awakening). Experiencing a Spiritual Awakening (or what some call a Kundalini Rising) is when the soul is timed to wake up, sort of like how labor of a birth starts to awaken the changes. And its horrible. Those who haven’t had it, don’t know.

Not everyone goes through this and don’t confuse sickness, mental sickness or emotional sickness and stress, or the saturn returns as a spiritual awakening, its not, the awakening is much different, although the symptoms of such things will be a sign for “some” people.

Because illness can be karmic (in the context of which I am speak of), the closest…

Greenlights Translation

secretsoftheserpent

Krewella is a band that has been awake for awhile.   They know what they are doing and so do the people who help them. These girls are not just about girl power they are fully awake. They use terms like bull and sheep knowing what I show you in my posts.   Their new song Greenlights is very revealing.  Here is another trip into my mind.  Take a deep breath and hold on tight.

Finding Balance at the Spring Equinox: A Sun Ritual Using the Three Druid Elements

The Druid's Garden

The Spring Equinox, Alban Eiler, is the time when the light and the dark in the world are in balance. The timing of the Equinox is fortuitous–this time of balance–after such turmoil in the world. Here in the last two weeks here in the US, we’ve been on a whirlwind of change where nearly every person’s life has been radically disrupted and changed due to the global pandemic. Given the circumstances of where we are, today, I’d like to offer a balancing ritual for Spring Equinox that you can do personally to help bring balance into your life.  (I’m posting this a few days early from my usual weekly post so that you have it in time for the Equinox!)
