All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
One of the greatest things about this era is that, in many ways, we are already a global people. The invention of the printing press and world travelers allowed books and papers to be published even before the internet. Books and papers that would allow an individual in one culture to learn about and feel the call of the gods of another all-together different culture. The internet only made this exchange of information easier, and despite a lot of the things…Continue

Poly means many.
Ticks are blood sucking parasites.
interesting when one breaks down politics.
Something I have long realized yet never really verbalised. Politics is nothing more than a being/spirit telling a being/spirit what to do, who to be etc... It is a being/spirit saying who is better and such. yet in truth we write our own destiny yet we try to control an others destiny. The need for politics is one of those necessary that is not a necessary.
My passion, both secular and spiritual, as been focused around Japan for a very very long time. Even before I first branched out into polytheistic paganism I had a deep love of Japan. Just seeing pictures, even not very picturesque pictures, would sometimes make me tear up with a deep longing from my soul to go home to this place I had never been before. Even with all of its incredible faults (and believe me there are a LOT) I still found myself coming back…Continue

"Listen on! Listen on! This is the truth of it. Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring, and that was damn near the death of us all. Look at us now, busted up and everyone talking about hard rain! But we've learned! By the dust of 'em all, Bartertown's learned. Now, when men get to fighting, it happens here, and it finishes here! Two men enter, one man leaves. And now, I've got two men — two men with a gut full of fear. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, dying time's…Continue
A shout out to all my fellow Survivors!
You know who you are.
Those who have endured devestating loss. Those who have been abused, neglected, bullied, harassed, assaulted, raped.
Those who have returned from active military duty to find their lives no longer make sense.
Those who struggle their way through the Dark Forest of their aftermath, and often feel entirely alone.
You are not alone, y'all.
Louder, for the people in the back?…Continue
Yeah, to get rid of the "dark spirits" in Congress you'd have to empty it out COMPLETELY.
Hmmm....not such a bad idea.
A member recently jogged my memory of black salt and an uncrossing that I performed; I thought I'd share my process with the community.
Black salt is made by milling sea salt or kosher salt with, traditionally, charcoal; this not a steadfast rule as some practitioners use powdered black dye, residue produced by cauldron scraping, the remnants of ritual fires, or good old caput mortuum; protective chants and Psalms are typically recited during the process as well. All of these…Continue

My body is a temple where my soul is enshrined.
This is one of my mantras. I use it to help me when I find being healthy to be particularly difficult or cumbersome. It's a concept that most on a pagan path, or honestly most religious paths, are familiar with. "Our bodies are gifts from the gods.", "Everything in the world is sacred, the forests, the oceans, even ourselves." So if this is true, and I hold…Continue

I have for a long time wanted to write a series of novels on the ancient Middle East; about the historical development of religious ideas from polytheism and henotheism to monotheism, and the people who lived in the area during the time; who were affected by these religious changes. I think it was around 2005 that I first started to think about writing on this topic; but then, I have so many things I want to write about, and I still think I know way too little about this. Perhaps I know a…Continue

It has been a long time since I've been on here, so much has changed! I've changed. My life has changed. My life is STILL changing. For someone who isn't too keen on change, eh, it's knocking at my door. Silver lining? Its changing for the better!

The Pueblo people of Ancient Chaco Canyon in New Mexico faced some very serious problems when their population grew too large for the available resources in the canyon. At one point between 850 and 1250 C.E. the population was estimated to have reached in the thousands. Recent studies have shown the canyon environment could not support this number.
Researchers at Chaco Canyon have carried out a detailed analysis of the climate and hydrology of the Chaco area and have found that its…Continue

The imagery of walking a single path by candle glow with a smoldering cauldron waiting in the center to reveal a message from a higher source or a revered ancestor is a powerful image to behold. Science tells us that walking the labyrinth can enhance right brain activity. Labyrinths can open you up to allow for a deep plumbing of your inner depths giving us a deeper understanding of the world within us and how it relates to the world around us. Now you’re asking yourself what does any of…Continue

I believe a spiritual check is due in my life. I am beginning to set up the ability to take something of a hiatus from school from January-August of next year, but why not get started now!? I have begun a life regression to study my own youth, and will expand to past life analysis. I love science, but there are shadowy realms that I cannot reach by dedicating my time to my scientific research. Time to get all metaphysical up in this b. Hope everyone on their own personal journey find the…Continue
Please stay safe in a world that has gone insane.
Before making a decision, ask yourself: "I am safe?".
That is all.
