I am new here on this site and to the pagan community. I am just looking to chat and hopefully get more insight on where I need to be in life. I grew up with a Christian family, so its hard to talk about my beliefs with them. Was thinking maybe this could help. Feel free to message me :)
The ritual begins: She sits within a circle of her favorite crystals; amethyst, quartz, tigers eye. She lights her sage bundle and allows it to smolder before bathing in its cleansing smoke, beneath it holding all the while an abalone shell, ceremoniously catching the ash. She prays to the spirits for protection as she casts her circle to begin her magic...
So many books paving the way for so many of us into paganism, new-age mindfulness or mysticism begin the same: Here are…Continue
In honor of April Fools Day, our theme this week is: The Trickster and Fool. We'll take a look at the history of April Fools Day, as well as the Role that the Fool and the Trickster play in Earth-Based religious practices.
Also, a quick look at some of the best known hoaxes in the history of the Western World (well, sort of, anyway)
And we'll hear some foolishness from today's Modern Trickster, Russell Brand. The English actor and commedian has, in my opinion, grown as a…Continue

I have had a crappy night and day so far, but I am not going to let it get to me. Instead I am outside enjoying the sunshine and focusing on the gardens I am going to be able to have once I move into my new home. I am so excited about it. It has a huge front porch that can easily fit a big table and chairs, to eat dinner at when it is nice outside. It also has a huge backyard that is fenced in with plenty of room for a garden and I am even looking at making an outdoor lounge area as well. I…Continue

Hi Y'all, Singing Dragon here. I was wondering If, there might be any Brothers who live here in The Houston Metro area, that I might could meet or atleast chat with? I'm not sure this is the "appropriate" way to do this, but this is much easier than going through each individual profile till I found someone.
Should any choose to respond, you can either do it via here or email me directly at SeinnArach1@gmail.com. Tho, I'm currently living in the Downtown Houston area, I'll be moving…Continue

I am a positive person and I try to be kind at all times whether I particularly like a person or not. I strive on my ability to be cordial even to the rudest of people, because that was how I was raised (I am an old country girl at heart). It has been starting to become difficult for me, but I know it’s because of where I am living and who has been the up front and center in my life lately, meaning my mother and my ex. My mother already started yelling and grumping at me when I woke up this…Continue

I don't write out my feelings often and on top of that I'm not always on here. I'm betting this is the first blog post in a long time or ever. My life has been rough with many homeless years and verbal and emotional abuses that led me to a breakdown mentally and around January 2015 I was admitted into the hospital to the mental ward to receive treatment and was diagnosed with bipolar depression with severe episodes. On and off from there almost monthly I was hospitalized for shutting down…Continue
I went to my son's home for a visit today. My daughter in law told me she was doing dishes, looked up and out the window over the sink, a bunch of white feathers were falling.
She did not go out to investigate to where they were coming from. Yes, a bird.
However can anyone tell me if there is a meaning to this? I am thinking to let them know angels are near?
Thank you for your input.
Deism as an encompassing thought and philosophy had a major influence over those we in American call our Founding Fathers. Thus the shape of our Constitution is very much a product of Deism.
But what's the connection between Deism and Paganism? Well, in the Eighteenth Century many Deists spoke of a Creator God, or The God of Nature. They connected to the Devine through Rational Thought Processes, and by connecting with Nature.
Clearly the Deists of 1775 would scoff at the…Continue

It has been awhile since I have been online let alone on any sites at all and I have missed it. I am not sure if anyone really reads my blogs, but in any case here we go…….. In September the man I had been with for 12 years decided to leave me and our two children. He ended up having a relationship with someone that I had considered my best friend. Not only did he leave but he had lied about paying bills for several months, so four days after he left my electricity got turned off and would…Continue

I'm hoping that by joining this community, I may find some people who I could make friends with and learn from.
I've always been searching and wondering where I may find some people who I could connect with on a spiritual or religious level, and well I came here to seek out some guidance too. I see a lot of older people here who are more experienced than me and all and I can only learn so much online.
I enjoy talking one on one with people too, especially those who could help…Continue
Hi all, it's been a while. Lots of weird emotions to deal with. For a couple of weeks there I cried at least once a day. I've healed a lot but still have much to go. Only one person wrote me back from my ex-mormon/leaving the family letter (a cousin.)
Got a call from my brother who works in the military and we talked for quite a while. The subject turned to family and confirmed he still talks to our dad, who consequently showed him the letter I'd sent, so I know he got it. Turns out…Continue
So what is the greatest writing tool a writer can have? It's more basic than your pen and paper, your typewriter, or the wordprocessing program on your personal computer. It is your subconscious, which is the wellspring from where all of your inspiration comes. It is a seething broth in a cauldron of images, concepts, ideas, and beliefs. Knowing this, midway into my 40s, I decided to make friends with my subconscious. A lot of people are afraid of their subconscious, fearing the sometimes…Continue
Astronomically, the Equinox occurs on Sunday, March 20. We'll be talking about the history of Spring Equinox - the role that it has played in cultures down the ages:
So, we'll talk about the Norse Goddess Eoster. Is she a bonefide Goddess, or just a fiction created by one author? Does it matter, really?
Plus ya can't talk about this time of the year without mentioning Rabbits & Eggs; and, of course, the Balance of Light and Dark. And in the spirit of…Continue

So, I decided to rediscover myself. Its probabky been years sense I lost my way. I was twelve when I started studying and about sixteen when I stopped. I was a few weeks shy of twenty-one when I realized that I lost myself. I'm not even as happy as I use to be. I am letting negative energy control me since I left my old home. That wasn't why those spirits where protecting me. They are bound to that home so when I…Continue
