Pull Up a Seat and Park It!

My mind was running that forever to do list, and was wondering how I was going to find an extra 6 hours, in the normal 24 hour day, to just break even with what was on the day’s list of chores. As I was driving over Prospect Hill, I looked off to the right and realized something; that day was just a single moment in time!

 

I pulled the car to the side of the road and shut it off. Wearily, I stepped out and walked toward the ledge. Slowly, I eased down to sit upon the rock wall…

Book Smarts - a BTW suggested reading list

Sometimes I've been asked what are some books I'd recommend for those who are just coming into learning about the Craft, and this is the list I pass along.  Most of the tomes on here are those which would be of…

Remember me with.....

We all were gathered together, sitting around the kitchen table and laughter was definitely the sound hear loudly throughout the house.  When one of my  kids brought up my Dad, (now the anniversary of his passing was 10 years ago on September 11, 2000), and shared how they had been down to visit his grave.

 

When I asked why? I got the simple response of how he had something to share with Grandpa.

 

Over the years, each of my two kids has frequently asked to go to…

THE EFFORT

Perspective, be it true that we all see things from a different one. One thing that must be remembered at all times, is we all must be true to ourself, with respect to how we look at ourselves.

 

Anger….Frustration…Indignation… and so many other negatives ... They are the negative energy forms that seems to be so accessable to all , while taking little to no effort to be share with others, since it revolves around all extensions of everyones' life. Some go to work and encounter…

k, here's an intro and some other things....

Hi i am aubrey... (hello aubrey)

and i am an eclectic pagan, and have been for about 85% of my life

everyone thinks i cannot handle being judged, but that's what i do on a day in and day out basis. i take scrutiny and use it as a form of constructive criticism.

i know my recent blogs didnt really make much sense (and got extremely out of hand) due to my lack of sleep and not getting very many details in about a few things made things a little shady to…

Blessings from the smiling, yet oft Salmon-bruised

Blessings from the smiling, yet oft Salmon-bruised

Nota Bene:  This enumerated list has been born of my own experiences as a seeker and eventual initiate of British Traditional Wicca (BTW). Your experiences my vary.  But having personally done many a tango, waltz and mosh-pit slam dance with the Salmon of Knowledge along the way, I…

A Messed-Up Version of the Prince and the Frog

I had a very very weird dream last night. I mean so weird that I actually remember it. I never remember a full dream unless one.) it is so weird that i cant get it out of my head, or 2.) It has some major significance to my life. I believe it is the first, but considering the symbolism of it more tame Disney counter-story it may be the second as well.

 

The dream starts with me at my house. I look out the back door and see people running down the street screaming. I look to see…

What is this doing here? [First Post]

What an odd little feature on a Pagan site.  Well, I suppose the whole point is to write something. Hmm, the only thing is, I'm not sure what to write about. I mean, I suppose I could say something completely meaningless and arbitrary like, "all cats are not dogs", but that has been done before and why copy someone's work? I suppose I could discuss politics, but I'm not very good at it, so thats a loss too.

 

Oh, I've got it. I'll just say that I think blogging is a funny…

How I receive messages...

Or maybe how I get answers???

 

There has been something on my mind since the discovery of my high school sweetheart on FB this past Sunday.  He was more than just that, we were engaged.  We even went so far as purchasing wedding rings and obtaining a marriage license.  Yes, at the tender age of 18yrs old.  Needless to say that maybe not getting married so young was probably the best thing for both of us.

 

We went steady for apx. 2 yrs.  When we went…

TAKE FIVE!

The balancing act of life is often one of the hardest things everyone faces. It is not simply a process of getting up and getting ready for the day. It is not just: the process of being active in within the community, maintaining a home and family, getting to various a doctors’  or dentists’ appointments, dealing with new births, dealing with the passing of someone we love, or simply even making sure you arrive to work on time. Life is filled with so many individual and unique facets. It is…

Semita Magus - The Path of the Mage

    Semita Magus, which means "The Path of the Mage," is the "official" name for the path I have chosen for myself. That is to say, that is the name I have given it, as my path is nearly unique and thus falls to me to name. It is not a grand title, nor is it anything assuming. I do not associate myself with the term "witch," nor do I consider all magical practices or spellwork to be "witchcraft." Rather, I find myself resonating in a much deeper level and with better associations with the…

Sharing an interesting dream experience

I had a very interesting dream some three to four years ago. I've been re-reading a book on tantra called The Book of Secrets and yesterday I came across what I think triggered this dream at the time.



"Seek not; otherwise you will miss. Seek not and find. Don't seek and find." - Lao Tzu



I shall quote a short bit of text from this chapter so the context of Lao's quote is better understood.



"When the mind is seeking worldly objects it is not so difficult, the…

Just to get something off my chest...

Although drawn in jest, this is pretty much how it is; and I'm sick of being told to 'deal with it'. Art and illustration are, in the modern world, commodities. They take time and resources to produce, and as such should be compensated in some way.

 

I had a guy on the Internet wanting me to design…

Ode to the Snow Moon

Ode to the Snow Moon



Snow Moon pure and bright,

Cleanse me with your cold light.

Moon for the Goddess shine on me,

Let the brightness heal me.



Close the year with the cold door,

Let there be pain no more.

Snow, pure and bright,

Reflect the shine on me with our Goddess light.

Sleep in peace my Mother Earth,

For the next time we meet you will be in Birth.

Shine today, shine real bright,

For your Full Face in the sky gives us… Continue
