Many of us seem to have an opinion on everything and everyone. How many times have you jumped at conclusions while watching the news or discussing other people with your friends?
And what about your inner dialogue? If you listen to your thoughts you might find that many times during the day you judge people based on their appearance and other irrelevant features. And not only other people – more often we become victims of our own judging or self-criticism, as they call it.
Judging others is a way of projecting our Read the rest of this entry »

How about some stress management tips? For many of us stress and tension sets the rhythm of our lives not allowing much space for creativity and simple pleasures. It is now acknowledged even by the orthodox science that stress can induce health conditions or make certain conditions worse. From the perspective of medicine, stress worsens the ability of nerves to transmit signals, i.e. our internal organs don’t receive the signals needed for optimal functioning and natural regeneration. It also keeps our muscles tense and flexed thus hampering blood flow and wasting energy.
From the perspective of metaphysics, stress and tension blocks our energetic channels in which case we develop energetic blockages, don’t receive the guidance, lose ability to dream. Energetic blockages result in loss of creativity, weakened intuition and other sorts of nasty things.
So much for the theory, now to stress management tips. The first step to fighting stress is understanding and accepting that we don’t get stress because of stressful situations or nasty people. The source of stress sits in our minds. We Read the rest of this entry »

The healing attributes of gems and precious stones have been known to people for thousands of years. The most primitive spiritual path of people who did the cave paintings already utilized stone effigies to house a spirit or to magnify a thought-form. The oldest stone effigy found by archaeologists is 12,000 years old (found in a Neolithic temple in Sanliurfa, Turkey).
Today we wear precious stones and jewelry largely for vanity purposes; the old civilizations had a different perception of what was important. There was a meaning and a purpose for every Read the rest of this entry »

Druid horoscope is one of the alternative zodiac systems of the Western world. It is a result of the old lore of Druids, who based their horoscope around the solar rite and attributed different trees to the wheel of year according to their biorhythms.
It was only with the advance and liberation of modern science that we understood the way druid horoscope works. It is scientifically proven that there is a strong link between your biofield (or subtle body) and that of a tree.
Majority of people will find that they do not get tired after Read the rest of this entry »

In nowadays Wiccans and some other neo-pagan groups celebrate 8 main sabbats or festivals. Majority of these traditions are in one way or another based on the folk-lore but the suggestion that Wicca sabbats are exact recreations of Celtic festivals is not exactly correct.
Wiccan Sabbats are divided into Lesser Sabbats that fall on the solstices or equinoxes (they are Midwinter, Ostara, Midsummer and Harvest Home) and Greater Sabbats (Samhain, Candelmas, Beltaine and August Eve). Some Wicca groups celebrate only Greater Sabbats, some celebrate all festivals while others even Read the rest of this entry »

It is OK to use Wicca spells written by other people but sooner or later you will find that you enjoy more freedom and possibilities by sometimes writing you own Wicca spells.
You have to remember that the words you say and items you use simply serve as manifestation of your intent. A successful spell is just a thought that has been materialized. There’s no magick involved. It is similar to Read the rest of this entry »

So why you need all this circle casting, magical attributes and spells in Wicca? The Universe loves symbolic gestures. Each spell or action you perform helps you concentrating on the thought and binding the energy. In Wicca you don’t cast a spell to impress others or to pretend you’re a magician of some kind. A Wicca spell is very similar to a prayer – a result-oriented direction of intent. It is all within your thoughts, within your consciousness. Even if it is the best spell on the Earth, it won’t work without Read the rest of this entry »

Wicca is very liberal and allows its practitioners experimenting and adding new knowledge to the lore of our ancestors. However, when it comes to the basics, there is no need to re-invent the wheel. It is much better to use Wicca techniques that are proven to be working. One of those techniques is casting a circle before spells, divination sessions and energy workings.
All the rituals Wiccans perform are not just showing off. Solitary Wicca practitioners perform similar rituals even though nobody is watching and the purpose of rituals is Read the rest of this entry »
