Devotions to Myself

Having attained my first degree in Reiki, I have been doing Reiki self-care on myself in a daily manner.

Additions to the Yule 2017 Agenda

  Proposal for five new shrines, which include: Ma Kali Shrine by the Hemlock Grove (previously approved by the Clergy Council back at Lughnasa 2017 however due to the events of Mabon 2017, I’d like to run my idea by the board as well.) The idea is that She would stand at the Gateway of…

The Memory of the Ocean

I wrote this poem as an apology to the God Poseidon. It’s actually two poems in one, representing the dance of earth and sea. The grounding forces of logic and reason at odds with the dance of emotion beating within my breast. When I was a teenager, I made a terrible error in judgment. I…

To lose a friend…to gain an understanding!

This year, I had as many victories as I did failures. It does not matter because those failures are readily turned into lessons and those victories have been steps in the path to a better understanding of my True Self.

Clergy Assignment: Afro-Carribean Voudou

The Call of the Watchers

“Be still. We are in the presence of royalty. From each direction, we prepare to honor Those who have watched us from the beginning of time.
