Hello brothers and sisters! Beltane is a very special day. A day to connect with our beloved mother, and celebrate the gift of life. A day to bond with mother nature.
Ive never celebrated a pagan holiday before, so i did some research. I love how pagans are strong believers of nature, along with panthiests <3 Im gonna celebrate by meditating with nature, singing songs to her, collecting yellow flowers from the ground, eat fresh foods with my mum, and talk about the seeds we wish… Continue
its never about the preparation, or the length, or the tools used, or how many candle if any at all, if I'm at an alter, or outside in the woods, if the cloth is the right color, if I'm skyclad or not, or if all the words are said correctly, or even if the liquid in the chalice is water, or if its red or white, or kool-aid. Its about the reason WHY I'm bothering to do it at all. Its about my faith, my religion, my heart, my spirit, the love of Deity, and the love I have for Deity. This is why I… Continue
I guess 3 years ago, i did an oracle reading for a lady that was on the team of personell that works where i live as caretakers.....
I was showing to several peeps that i did some oracle/tarot readings when this lady finally stepped up to me (i could feel she was hesitant, little disbelieving) and asked if i could do a reading for her... actually i was getting ready for reading for somebody else but i felt she needed it... and thus i did a reading for her instead..
The cold, biting winds of the North bit into the man’s skin through his cloak and thick winter clothing as he climbed through the mountains. It was so cold that the very stinging tears rolling down the man’s alabaster face were freezing in the wind, dropping off as small, frozen crystals. This magician had been travelling the world, searching for something that he could use to truly leave his mark. He had used his magic for both good and ill, but neither brought him what he yearned for, so he… Continue
It took me a couple of days but i think, (*also because im bored lol) that i am slightly recovering the trauma i had on monday (april 20, 2011) and thus i can now fully tell what had happened to poor me...

I often begin my Beltaine articles with that quote from the musical Camelot. It seems to sum up much of the tradition that surrounds the joy of life and frivolity of Beltaine. It puts me in a celebratory mood every time.
As with many things in my life this year, this article, too, is a bit late. Time seems to be passing so quickly this year. So much is happening. Such great wonders have I seen.… Continue
Yesterday, my kids and I made a miniature version of a maypole, not only to honor Beltane, but to share with them a part of my heritage, as I grew up in Bavaria, in which rural parts the tradition of putting up a large maypole is still alive and practiced today.
As I grew up, my cousin and I used to practice singing songs for this occasion - I wish that I would have kept the sheet music from back then, but we were pre-teens, keeping momentous where not our priority.
Back to now, and… Continue
Well, yesturday was not a real good day, for my daughter had to go to the hospital and I did not like what I heard. She started the day with taking her son to the doctor for he had stuck a gum wrapper in his ear then; she got this horrible headache and ended up having to go to the hospital. There they told her that she has had a stroke from her blood pressure being so high, she also has a severe sinus infection, plus they told her that she might be going through… Continue
I walk alone time and space looking all around. I call upon my beloved wife to see what I have found. We look above the midnight skies and call upon the stars. We turn and look to see what's all around. We look into the midnight sky and call upon the ground. We look upon the time and space to see what we have found. We turn and look upon the ground and call upon the seas. We turn and look upon the sun that warns this place we found. We call upon the trees and plants to give it air to breathe.… Continue
I quite recently read a book called "The Law of Manifestation" written by a man named David Spangler. He once wrote in the book at the law of manifestation wasn't magic. As in making something from nothing, while it merely used ones own environment and mindset and other areas needed to make an idea, need or desire manifested into light.
But the more I thought about it and the more I experimented with it, I found that in a sense the Law of Manifestation was both magick and yet not. It… Continue
