On Faith

Lately I’ve been praying a lot to Gaia. These are small prayers that will get me through the day, the hour and the next minute. Since mid-September I’ve been working as a customer service representative with a pharmaceutical company. I answer calls at home. We only had four days of training and each day brings new updates to our scattered handwritten and printed notes. At first I honestly didn’t think I could make it through this job that Vocational Rehabilitation found for me. I suffer from anxi … [Read more...]

Online Astral Rituals

The moonlight shimmered across the still silver lake. A couple dozen of us women in cloaks steered wooden ships toward an island draped in fog. The ships were intricately carved in Celtic designs. As we reached the shores our Priestess, Shekinah Mountainwater, parted the mist. We landed and made our way onto the beach smiling and sometimes laughing excited about the ritual and wondering what spirits would join us this time. Would it be fairies, elementals or ancestors? At other times we’d follow … [Read more...]

Little Mixing Bowl of Memories

I have a white small mixing bowl with two flat handles and tiny blue flowers. It looks a lot like the one my family used to have.When my dad was alive he would eat cereal every evening. I would sit on his lap and share while we talked about this or that. Eventually as my sisters got older we would all want to share and be near him so the bowl got bigger and bigger until it was the size of a giant mixing bowl. The bowl I have is exactly like the one Dad and I used to share when I was the … [Read more...]
