Imagine a person in a prison. He/she has been imprisoned for life and will wait till death in the prison.
What can possibly motivate such a person? What do these people look forward to in their lives?
Sometimes, we are also prisoners of our thoughts and our past deeds. We also have nothing else to look forward to. We only have regrets. At least, we can do something about the conditions, but the prisoners can do nothing. Life can be depressing at times. How to inspire ourselves in…

What a warm, hot and humid summer this has been so far - and it's not even over with......................
The weather has been so hot and humid that I haven't been in my garden for quite a while. I'm waiting for the cooler weather to come so that I can get back out there and clear away the weeds so that I can be ready for next season.
I love the idea of harvests and all that go with it and even though I haven't grown anything in my garden so far this year doesn't mean that I…Continue

I normally work two hours on Monday at 158 Bakery in South Portland Maine. However a month ago I was offered two more hours as long as I worked four hours in a row. Because of my ADD and social anxiety I had been unable to work more than two hours at a time but recently have managed to concentrate for longer and work four hours on Thursday.
Otherwise I have met a wonderful friend named Dale who's gay like me and have met quite often with him. We meet at least twice a…

I spent 7 years researching and writing a very comprehensive set of Pagan reference books. And they're finallyfinished and published!
They are cross-referenced with each other, so most of the information in one is in the other. There are exceptions,that being the tables.
They can be found at: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/Viktorija
The books' titles are:

Have been having extremely bad luck since we bought our house in 2006. Since then we have had cold spots and bad luck with every member of our family. I initially thought that my Husband was having me on when he wanted to buy the house. I felt that the house was wrong for us. Call it six sense. Since buying the house we have had no end of bad luck. It is terraced onto a main road. Even my dogs react strangely and do come to find comfort on our bed. I have tried a cleansing spell but this…Continue
The day any human soul is born. We know that the same soul will leave his or her physical form and experience the eventuality of death. Birth, mating, procreation and death: these are the rituals of living. Which are pre-destined, inevitable and controlled by a higher power. Birth and death are inevitable but mating and procreation may vary from individual soul to…Continue

I have always been a very out spoken person, and never had a reason or want to change that and as my parents would put it the rebel. That is until one thing, a simple object set a fire to my soul and pushed meaning into my life. You see I always had my own habits and a very Pagan out look on life. I'm sure my parents knew I was Pagan before I did. Little things like…Continue

1. All of the earth is our kin it is nescary spiritually to tread on it as lightly as possible to preserve it for future generations.
2. It is nescary in order to serve the Gods not to consume the flesh of our breathern. While this dose please the Gods. Abstaining from eating flesh has spiritual and physical benefits.
3. As Above So Below. As We Meditate on any given Deity no matter the intent. That particular God/ddess is trying to awaken themselves within…

Goddess worship and magick, there is no other archetypal deity with a single practice more universal than Goddess worship and magick. Magick is defined as the scared art and science of causing change to occur in conformity with will. Why do people tend to accept the creativity of the divine female and then tend to order the universe how they see fit. Why is The Goddess giving us the knowledge to change reality?
In order to Find Magick in every culture you need to know what you are…

To this day, i had searched for so long for a mother, a mother that i never had. My mother was a typical subservient woman. She did everything that my father told her to. Often sh would be yelled at and verbally abused if she didn't listen to what he said and i witnessed this. My mother had never stood up for me when my father would yell at me. She even had agreed with him when the night came that he had kicked me out of the house. I yearned for a mother, for someone to be there for me. I…Continue

Wow, 2 whole years since I last posted here. Life has been its usual roller coaster ride. Suffered through a few health problems including some bad bouts of depression. Fortunately seem to be on the mend both physically, mentally and spiritually. I'm back on track mentor-wise and studies wise now. Just waiting to get my mentor projects finished and then I will apply for 1st degree clergy status. In the meantime I've started working on the second degree studies and that is going…Continue

"Every religion, of course, includes individuals who have a genuine understanding of myth, ritual and symbolism, and who are able to use them creatively within the framework of their own faith. But all too often, if they try to express this understanding to others, they are looked at askance as probable heretics by their co-religionists whose 'faith' is a rigid structure of conditioned reflexes.…Continue

I'm very bad at words, especially grammar. Just letting you know.
I'm female 26 years old from the midwest. I live in a desert but it's still very beautiful in it's own way. I have a variety of interests. I love music, dance, singing. I'm actually pretty decent dancer and singer. I like photography, and have decent knowledge of photoshop and webdesign. I love videogames, my sisters and I have been gaming since we were young. Thanks to our dad.
My father has always been…Continue
