The Futhark and spiritual growth

2 October 2014

FRANCISCO FUMAROLA. I once heard someone describe the runes as a “lesser form of magic”, or a “lesser arcana”. I have also heard that the runes deal with lower energies than for example the powers dealt with in Kabbalistic magic. Nothing could be further from the truth. The runes express concepts and powers from Germanic myth and Germanic worldview. I believe that the runes are a summary of all important forces of creation and therefore they reflect the whole or a cosmology.[...]

I am a Child!

I am a Child!

MICHELLE SHIRLEY. So you’re fed up with the frustrations of the Winter and if you haven’t already been out in the beautiful sunshine we have been blessed with, then perhaps now is a good time to do it. Being Spring and a time of rebirth and rejuvenation, it is time for each of us to find our Inner Child and let that Child play in the Gardens we have been blessed with. There is much symbolism and synchronicity in life with each moment and in this instance I refer to the gardens of our lives. Each moment is an opportunity to play – to play BIG or play SMALL. The important part is to PLAY.[...]

Doing Magic on the fly in the U.S.A.

CHRISTOPHER BLACKWELL. Madrid was a very special place for me. It was where I earned enough money to build my rock shop. It was where I went to my first four Pagan festivals and where I first practiced as a Witch using Starhawk's The Spiral Dance as a guide. My first sabbat was Samhain of 1983, celebrated in a small nearby sandstone cave. It was the first place I was forced to figure magic out in an emergency.[...]

An Introduction to Ma'at

KHEMAYSEKHMET. "Maat" has two meanings in the ancient Egyptian language. Maat is first the goddess of justice and truth, who gave meaning to the world and bestowed order upon the chaos of creation in the First Times. She governs the movement of the stars, the rising and setting of the sun, the inundation and retreat of the Nile, and the laws underlying all of nature.[...]

Communicating with Plants

Communicating with Plants

17 September 2014

BOB MAKRANSKY. Even if you can’t seem to tune in to the feelings of plants, you can still telepathically “talk” with them. Plants can talk to you in thoughts, and these (at first) seem indistinguishable from your own thoughts. That is, it will seem to you that you are the one who is thinking these thoughts, when in fact it is the plants which are sending you messages.[...]
