I began my journey in the late 1960's. Just a few years ago it seems. I have been very fortunate to have met the right people first time out. I like to think it was because I knew them in another life time. Over these many years I have met some amazing people, and my craft family has grown in great numbers. It isn't that easy today. Although there are many people to meet, many are not what they seem. Remember to check people out you meet for your own safty. A good place to do this is on a yahoo… Continue

Ohh, the refreshment of a brand new day is always amazing...at least after I've had my Red Bull, lol. With work, school, and all the other hum drum stuff of everyday life, I sometimes find myself amazed at how grounded I can be at times. There are a lot of angry people out there who choose to let their steam fly your way for a number of reasons I'm sure, and a lot of us unconsciously absorb that negativity to either bottle up inside of… Continue

It was so cold. Snow fell constantly, and ice formed over all the waters. The animals had never seen snow before. At first, it was a novelty, something to play in. But the cold increased tenfold, and they began to worry. The little animals were being buried in the snow drifts and the larger animals could hardly walk because the snow was so deep. Soon, all would perish if something were not done.

Angelic Correspondences: Numerology & Major Arcana
"The name Angel refers to their office, not their nature. You ask the name of this nature, it is spirit; you ask its office, it is that of an Angel, which is a messenger." St. Augustine
"An angel can illumine the thought and mind of man by strengthening the power of vision, and by bringing within his reach some truth which the angel himself contemplates."
St. Thomas Aquinas

Angel Protection and Cleansing
Why, Who, Where, When, How.
This is one of the most important issues of spiritual development. You will have to deal with but most of us overlook as being irrelevant. People feel unless they can see or feel something that it isn't important. We look too much at gaining power, but we must remember we have to build our world starting at the foundations of life and ascending upwards. Power and ability has to be earned.

Candle Magic has been around for many, many years, being traced as far back as the Paleolithic era. It is a very powerful form of sympathetic magic.
There are many factors that play into the art of candle magic. As we know any type of magic that is performed will return to you three fold, whether it be positive or negative. Always keep the Wiccan Rede “An harm to none do what thou wilt” in mind when considering your work. Always keep in… Continue

Just a quick note to let all of you know that I'm going to be MIA until the middle of August. Some of it has to do with promotional stuff, and the rest of is personal business.
The main reason for this note, though, is that due to unforseen circumstances, I'm not going to be able to get the Lammas issue of Yellow Brick Road out on time. So if you're a subscriber, not to worry. You'll have it in hand mid-August if not sooner.

What a beautiful day to be alive! The ocean of green that stuffs the eye with wonder when wandering the woods or a quiet city lane, the shimmer of heat rising from the earth, bringing moisture up to where it condenses into billowing thunderheads that flicker with lightning and return the purple rains to the thirsty soils beneath. Our deck garden thrives with 23 different flowering plants, four veggie plants and three fruits. Our freezer fills with local organic berries and veggies; our… Continue

Denessa Smith was my friend, and I loved her for a number of reasons - perhaps the most important of which was the fact that she was a real human being with human flaws and failings just like the rest of us. But instead of letting those flaws get her down, she accepted them for what they were: an integral part of who she was. Moreover, she came to undertand that no one else was perfect, either. And it didn't matter whether she understood why people did some of the crazy things they did or not.… Continue

Tomorrow is not only a New Moon, but also a Full Solar Eclipse. Spiritual practices on such events are magnified exponentially. And "What the world needs now..." is peace peace peace. Please use this magnified period to put forth vibrations of peace and love toward those you may have labeled "enemies". Life is too short, too precious and too at risk of extinction to harbor even a thought of hatred or enmity toward any beings. But not only does there need to be a lack of negative thoughts, but a… Continue

Just what Power is I cannot explain for it is beyond my comprehension. Those who seek it go alone
that they may be tested for worthiness. It is a gift to be bestowed not only for virtue but for
prayer and courage.

Victorio was chief of the Ojo Caliente Apache and at one time served under Apache Mangas
Coloradas. Victorio was an adamant fighter for his people and used physical force when necessary.

Staying In Pain
Pain comes and it goes. It is just one component to the grand cycle of life. And when experienced as such, pain can serve as an important teacher. It is when we get stuck in our pain that it becomes detrimental to our well-being and development. If you notice that you feel closed-off, resentful, heavy-hearted, or that you try very hard to avoid being hurt again, there may be a part of you that is still stuck in pain.
We can get stuck in our pain for many… Continue

August Eve, Lammas Eve, The Eve of Lughnasadh.
In pre-Christian times, the Oidhche Lugnasa was celebrated by the Celts on this night in honor of their solar deity named Lugh. His annual sacrifice at the end of the harvest ensured the fertility of
the corn and grain for the next growing season.
An old August Eve tradition in rural Scotland is predicting the following year's marriages and deaths by throwing sickles into the air and then drawing omens from the position in which they… Continue
