Avoid Stage Fright with these tips

There are so many things a performer is afraid of and one of them is – Stage Fright.

Stage fright is an issue for the newbies in the world of public speaking, and it can be a cause of worry even for the experienced. This is because the person about to deliver a speech or give a presentation in a business meeting is often worried about the reception the will receive before, during and after the speech. It is possible that even the most experienced speaker might give a dumb impression…

As Usual

Pagan Pride Day in the Twin Cities yesterday. I skipped it. I am so tired of plastic pagans, those who are there only for self-gratification. I so do not need community, I do not need those who cannot be pagan without being validated by someone else. Christians need community, they need churches to validate themselves and their beliefs. For me, covens are nice and with the exception of Gardnerian, they do not attempt to tell you what to say or how to act or feel. I strengthen my spirituality…

Special Thank You

Blessings to Steve, all the fellow mods, and the RP members.....

Just a short note to explain my frequent absences as of the past couple of weeks... My cousin entered hospice and was brought home two weeks ago today...(Brain Cancer). Things have been pretty touch and go, the days and nights, have been filled with both good and bad moments. As a family, we have been spending as much time as possible with him...We lost his mom to the same thing, several years ago, so this has been very…

Natural soaps

Just thought I would post this to let everyone know that we have a new website. We have been making soap at home and we hope to sell it at flea markets, farmer's markets, and festivals.

Been a while

Hey everyone,

Sorry it's been a while since I have posted. I have been sick and it just has not been a good couple of months for me. I turned 33 this month on the 3rd. So I guess that is one good thing. :) I'm still here after turning one year older. Recently, I have been doing more Egyptian Wicca research and found my Egyptian Name. I chose it. It is Sat-Anubis meaning Daughter of Anubis. I have also lately been watching a channel on YouTube called the Kemetic Independent Channel. If…

The Calling

The Calling

 

            In Luna’s face

                        And in the sea

Why mother do you beckon me?

            By waters edge

                        And at nightfall

I concentrate to heed your call

            The bright stars dancing

                        From dusk to morn’

Or joy and laughter in sudden storm

            If what I feel

                        And what I see

I could make…

Thoughts in motion... an insane reflection

Man look to the stars for certainty, but the only certainty is that every day we are alive, our destiny is getting one day closer.

We are all in motion hurdling towards a destiny we did not chose and cannot avoid.

 

Something I have spent aeons trying to avoid, but I guess... it’s about great bodies moving through space and they speed up as they get nearer to each other…

Whispering flutter

Fluttering through the flow

seeking direction and purpose

Pursuing the faint call of a whisper

A gentle promise of sweet content

Fluttering through the endless flow

Searching through layer upon…

Wings entwine

A lone figure edged on a ridge

against a setting sun

wings resting neck arched

watching the light fade to night



A gentle breath escape scally lips

muscles twitch, releasing the days tension

heavy head turn as blue eyes

scan the night sky waiting



The sound of night…

Wisdom of a leaf

Wisdom written in the veins of a leaf

Whispers of years that has passed

Live recorded with each passing breath

Each day added to the rings of knowledge

The tender beat of a lady bugs heart

Recorded with…

Breathe the flow

I wrote this one night, and I can't remember when, found it in my journal a few days ago... I may still work on this or not, I never know

Moving flowing swaying,

Blue energy swirling,

One way then the next...

Drawing deep from heated breath,

Body…

Future Self

It's been a while since I've posted here on the blog here.  I think it's time I started getting serious again with my inner self blogs.  My inner self has been telling me some interesting things lately.

In fact, for some reason, I feel that I've been having visions of the future or some sort of revelation about myself.  I'm not sure how to explain it, other than it's as though I'm actually there.  When these visions happen, they're sometimes here and sometimes on another…

Plastic and what YOU can do about it!

Hey all,

The inspiration of this post came from a video that sutra shared with a few of is in chat. This isn't my first post about environmental issues and definitely won't be my last. As an active environmentalist I strive to raise awareness and be the change I want to see in the world. And as many of us here practice earth based pactices where mother nature is the main focus protecting her and letting her heal by us reducing waste and resources should be an important focus for all of us… Continue

Small Hiatus

Hey all,

I just wanted to say that I will be taking a hiatus for about a week starting on Friday. My hubs and I are going out of town for our anniversary to go comic shopping and do a few other things. Then I have 2 days of recertification classes I have to take for work and 2 Dr's appointments all in the same week. I will be checking my email so if anyone needs me for anything I will definitely see it and respond as soon as I can.

I have some great posts planned for when I…

Conflicted.

I have been feeling like a really awful Pagan lately. I am a Germanic Polytheist and I feel like I suck at incorporating the Gods into my daily life. I want to, I really do, I just feel like I can't find something that fits. I feel awful because I want so badly to have Odin in my life every day, but I'm not doing it. Its really upsetting, Granted, after I started listening to viking metal on the way to work, I feel much more connected, but I really need to find more bands to listen…
