Wealth spells – a warning

I just wanted to add a bit of a warning about wealth spells. Unless you are very very careful about how you phrase this sort of spell, it will have unintended consequences, such as the death of a relative who leaves you a legacy, or a fire burning down your house leaving you the insurance […]

Moving On

Moving On

Well, after some time away from the keyboard, it’s time to start writing again. Not that I had writers block, but my mundane life went a little bit crazy and I needed to spend some time sorting all of that out. I’m currently working 40 hours per week which is really ten hours too much, […]

Getting Started – The Decision

Getting Started – The Decision

  The decision to go on a journey should not be taken lightly. It’s a very large disruption, not only to your current patterns of life, but most definitely to your current patterns of thinking. They say that travel broadens the mind, but it also lengthens it, stretches it and generally expands it into places […]

Psychic Vampirism – and other Nasty Stuff

What is a psychic vampire? It sounds very nasty, and it is, but of course it is a lot more common than most people think, and perhaps you have indulged in a bit of it yourself. Mostly unconscious, this is a fairly dramatic name for something which happens a lot in human relationships. One person […]

REMOVING PROTECTION SPELLS

  Do a search on ‘protection spells’ and you’ll find many thousands of such spells, from bindings, to candle magic, to visualisations or combinations of the above. The wearing of amulets and of special herbs is also effective in certain circumstances, and crystals can be charged for this purpose as well. But what about when […]

Dealing with Anxiety and Depression

Dealing with Anxiety and Depression

I am not a medically qualified professional, but I have had to deal with both of these issues in my own life. The following is personal opinion and experience only and should not be taken as medical advice. Many years ago, a psychiatrist of my acquaintance told me that my anxiety and depression was not […]

A Cool Change

So yesterday was a day of blasting blustery wind and driving rain. The harbour was closed, and mad as I am, I went to the markets to try to sell stuff. I should have known better and stayed in bed. I soon learnt the value of low profile display stands, and how a stack of […]

Grounding

I thought it might be timely to add a quick note about grounding. This is one of the first things I will discuss with someone who is starting out along the pagan path, and it’s one of the most important things to learn apart from casting a circle. Most people can raise energy. Have you […]

The choppers, man, the choppers…

The choppers, man, the choppers…

The summer of 2010 – 2011 will be associated in my mind with the noisy thump of those enormous Blackhawk helicopters coming in to land at the airport. The regular flight path is close to my house, so every morning as I sit on my verandah doing my writing for the day, there are at […]

Opportunity Blindness

Opportunity Blindness

A friend did a spell on my behalf recently. It was in two parts: that there would be opportunities open to me that I would be able to see those opportunities The second part of this spell is really the most important, because it addresses an issue which many of us find difficult. Quite often, […]

Finding your niche

Finding your niche

It’s peculiar what means different people find for achieving validation in their lives. What makes people feel worthwhile varies so enormously, and it’s one of the aspects I am working on changing in my own life. I am sure that we have all met people who live their lives through their children’s achievement. This is […]

The nature of privacy

The nature of privacy

I’ve been forced to confront recently the nature of privacy in this internet age. Having had to deal with Facebook for this blog’s purposes, and having invited some friends to have a look, I now confront the fact that although I swore I wouldn’t, I am now a daily facebook user – Blech! As I […]

Taking Mother Nature for granted

Taking Mother Nature for granted

It’s odd, but my pagan friends aren’t particularly worried about this extreme wet season we are having here in Queensland, Australia. They are certainly not fighting over the last bottle of milk in the supermarket as though the apocalypse was upon us. Seriously, people, not having milk in your coffee is not the end of […]

What is home?

The saying is that “home is where the heart is”, but home is more than that. For instance, a person can have a spiritual home, without ever having lived there, or even visited the place. This is awkward to explain in a scientific manner. If you allow for reincarnation though, it becomes a simpler matter […]

To Christmas or not to Christmas

A Pagan Perspective I had an interesting discussion with the Watcher the other day. We face a similar dilemma at this time of the year. When you have children, the issue of instilling religious beliefs becomes something which you need to consider. My son’s school provides an hour a week of religious education which is […]

A Walk in the rain

I went for a walk in the rain this morning. I go every morning to get the paper, over an increasingly difficult route, and have a swim when I get back. As a New Years resolution, I decided that it was about time I increased my activity level, and this is instead of the gym. […]

Making hard decisions

Making hard decisions

  It’s been a difficult process, unwinding my life in 14 days. We’d gone from despairing that the house would ever sell and making plans for staying another 2 years, to sudden joy that it finally sold, to panic at the fact we had to be out in a fortnight. If we had simply been […]

Q and A – The Masons

Q: I’m being pressured to join the Masons, and I’m not sure how long I can hold out. Do you have any advice? A: What’s interesting here is that you feel ‘pressured’ to join. Your instincts are trying to tell you that there is more going on here than meets the eye. Is it your […]
