Words to the Wise

"W is for Wisdom, I is for Integrity, T is for Truth, C is for Courage, and H is for Honour. We are of a Higher Standard. A Standard that Honours all of humanity, all Her living creatures, and above all, one's self as the Goddess and God abide within."--HPs Lori Bruno, c. 1960s (via Vinnie)

Home

What is home? Is it a place you live? Some where you keep all of you material things.  Is it a place where your family is born and brought up? Somewhere you find your roots.  Or is it a place that is beyond space and object? Somewhere attached to the core of your Spirit.  A place that your energy calls to . . . feeds from.  A place you were born with power and strength and knowledge, but not exactly the place you were born in flesh.

I've never quite had a place to call home. …

Amnesia of the Spirit

From conception I was destined to do wonderful and great things. I was blessed with many gifts, gifts that I would never quite understand.  

My Home

Before birth I was gifted with Empathy and Sight.  I could feel, smell, and see my first home. The moment my mother stepped into the house that was to be ours I could see it from her eyes.  I could feel it with the touch of her hand and under our feet.  I could smell the acrid scent of smoke and ash.  There…

Post #1: Intro

Just like the title suggests, just intro-ing for now. What I would like to point out from the get go is that I do have a separate LiveJournal on which I will be posting pretty much the same thing I will be posting here from time to time. So as much as I want to point out what it is I will be posting, its not going to be much different if you read or have read my LJ.

That said, I will have more in the next post. Till then, later!

Enjoying summers bounty

Hey all its been a little while since my last post. But I want to talk today about summer food. Those of you who are members of spice goddess know that I have been cooking a lot of healthy garden recipes lately full of iron and other goodies. I am so thankful for the food that she (goddess) and he (god) provides. There is something magical about food from the earth isn't there? I have been cooking a Lot of zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, eggplant, tomato, corn and beans.

I have also… Continue

Reincarnation?

To explain the title, I must do a little backstory. To begin, history is my first love.

Ancient Egypt is of particular importance. One of my clearest childhood memories is an argument revolving around the most advanced ancient civilization. I advocated quite passionately for Ancient Egypt, citing the evidence I'd seen on museum trips and documentaries. Cleopatra was my idol - when my friends were sick from school, she was my was pretend companion on the black top.

As I've aged, other… Continue

Surprise!

  So, last week my husband and I found out we are expecting our second child! :)  We are excited but nervous at the same time because we are super broke but we'll make it through.  We always do.  First doctors appointment isn't until August 28th (three days after my classes start btw).  We are hoping for another boy, but of course we wouldn't be disappointed with a girl, lol. 

Anywho!  Just thought I'd share the good news :)  We haven't told the family yet, but everyone I work with…

Whoot!

Well, that worked out well. I retested the math section of the placement test and did so well that I'm now going directly into college algebra. lmao
Oye. I guess studying my buns off for the last 2 weeks paid off!

Who Is Flammeous {De Empress}?

It has recently came into my awareness, that I haven't put much out there on RP about me. I even went to check my blog entries, and YUP. I seemed to miss that part.



Growing up, the/a Lutheran church was like my 2nd family - just me attending, not so much my parents.  At least I had more pleasant experiences with people there at Church, than I did any where else. Outside from Church I had a really rough childhood.  I was bullied, picked on; an outcast with other children, in a…

On This Day July 23, 1892 - The First Hebrew Path To Obeah

This blog entry is tying into my previous blog The History of Obeah, in my quick attempt to explain more about "The First Hebrew Path to Obeah", that is mentioned at the link on that blog.  It also gives a little insight to the spiritual, Afro-centric path, of Rastafari, which I personally believe Obeah, and Christianization may have contributed to the path of Rastafari, but that's a whole other…

The History of Obeah

Since my husband (whose Jamaican), usually refers to me as Obeah.  I've been curious as to what that really is or means (aside from his quick definition of it).

 

So I've always been on the look out for any online information in regards to Obeah, and I can attest there hasn't been a whole lot of information online about it, as it is probably the most secretive and lesser known magikal practice around today.  Witchcraft is still illegal in Jamaica.  So, if you are in to that…

Pagan Obsession - Collecting & Hoarding

I admit it. I like to collect spells, magickal formulas, and herbal recipes (baths, incense, oils, powders). I'm sure I got a remedy to whatever ails ya. Magickally and medicinally. Some where around here.



Why?



Well, when I first went seeking, and not even necessarily 'The Craft'. I found myself even then, collecting spells and formulas, as if I was satisfying some obsessive compulsive disorder, like I had to collect them all like Pokemon. The more secretive and…

Settling In, news and tips.

Hey all,

This is my first post since we got moved. We are almost all unpacked but not quite done rearranging and figuring out where we want some of our furniture to go. We were blessed with the fact that the previous owners were moving into a small apartment and they left a lot of furniture for us: A dining room table with 6 chairs, china cabinet, a rocking chair, curio cabinet, entertainment center, small dining room table with 4 chairs, oven, refrigerator, washer, dryer, deep…

Busy, busy...

*sigh* Ah, life, she gets in the way sometimes.  It seems that's the case for me lately.  Family reunion last weekend, funeral this weekend, my hubby will be leaving for fire school the same day, and finally scheduled for college again.  So yeah, I've been busy.  Too busy to regularly check RP :(

Every year my husband's side of the family has a reunion at a different place.  This year we went to San Antonio, TX.  I was excited.  I haven't been there since I was about 15-ish.  We had…

Native Tongues (Mvskoke "Creek" Language 1)

I've been away for a while, been incredibly busy, and have put what little time I have into another site.  I started a blog on this other site and thought it would be interesting to share it here as well.  :)

It's been a while since I posted a blog, since I really needed access to a computer to turn this stuff into a legible study guide instead of, incomprehensible to anyone but me, scribbles in a note book.  My eldest daughter and I have decided to learn to speak the Mvskoke…

Insight Under Unfortunate Circumstances - Psalm 68:2

The other day, I had the most insightful thought.



See, I have gotten this really gnarly tooth infection - lucky me. Now, I'm not panhandling for anyone's sympathy here, as it's my own bloody fault for not taken care of it in the first place, and I'm left to pay the piper. Although your prayers for a quick healing, and the courage to take care of this once and for all, is greatly appreciated.



Phobias.  I tell ya. Can inflict more harm, than the original fear itself.…

Bad news, good news & a dilemma.

The bad news:  I took my PERT test (college placement test) and I scored high on the reading & writing but I also scored below the mid range on the math.  I didn't do as bad as I thought I would but every question I got was an algebraic equation and I hadn't relearned that yet.  I'm currently up to pre-algebra in my relearning.  This means if I leave things as they are, then I will have an extra math class for remedial…

I had to call the fire dept!

Hey all,

Little eventful this evening. I was packing boxes and the carbon monoxide detector started going off. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and nothing. The cats were acting just fine. I had a headache but I had had it for a while before. So I called the fire dept and they came out and checked everything. Turns out that it was just the old carbon monoxide detector. I did learn that my cats would've been dead before I had symptoms because they are more susceptible to that. So…

Do we really only live once?

Hey everyone,

So this post is kind of complicated even for me, the one writing it. I do believe in reincarnation, I won't get into it all because that is a whole other blog post for me to write someday. But  I don't know that I believe that everyone is reincarnated. So my question is do we really only live once? I also try and live with no regrets. Everything happens for a reason, and that within every hardship there is a blessing.

But the turns my life is taking lately, (again…

I haven't blogged since April 20th...

...and things have been hectic, no, manic, so that's why!

I give thanks for all the blessings that have come my way, the positives and the negatives, as they are all gifts, and part of lifes' rich tapestry, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

On the upside, my harp playing has REALLY taken off, I've learned about 40 pieces to play now, and I am enjoying that loads, and getting lots of positive feedback from far and wide - not to mention the bookings diary looks very…
