Review Wood Wisdom A Guide To The Sacred Forest

Review Wood Wisdom A Guide To The Sacred Forest
I'm currently reading a lovely book called Wood Wisdom. It is all about tree lore and has a wealth of information about the trees made famous in the ancient Irish Ogham tree alphabet. It is illustrated with mandala-like images for each tree, with circular patterns derived from the leaves, seeds, berries and symbolic associations.

I must admit the book by H Catherine Watling has been on my to-read pile for a little while - I got it at the same time as The God Tree, which I wrote about at the end of last month - but I am really wishing I'd read it sooner because it is fascinating.

Wood Wisdom begins with a guided meditation called Treading the Forest Path. This can be used to meet the sacred trees of our land, and the rest of the book covers the trees in detail. It offers facts as well as folklore, Celtic myths and legends, poetry, seasonal rituals, crafts such as wand-making and a meditational paragraph on each tree that can incorporated into the forest pathworking.

The Capall Ban website says: "Wood Wisdom is designed as a companion to exploring the sacred forest, both in the physical world and the inner realm of imagination, vision and dream."

As well as being a treasure trove of delightful information, the book acts as a divinatory set. A card set is being produced to accompany the book, so you can draw one and look up its meaning for guidance or inspiration.

Although I haven't seen the card set, I can see from the illustrations in the book that it would be delightful to use. Jon of publisher Capall Ban told me: "The author is also the artist and is producing the cards as a separate colour set. Originally the book wasn't going to include the cards, but we're changing it to have the cards as a black-and-white set bound in the back. We'll supply b/w cards to people with the original version."

I think this could well be the book I was looking for to help me explore the Ogham in greater depth, but I'm sure I'll also be taking it with me on woodland walks - as well as trying out the visualisations. And I look forward to hopefully seeing the cards some time too.

Upcoming Plans And Something Practical

Upcoming Plans And Something Practical

Lots of things going on of late:

Upcoming Plans: I will be invoking Annubis for an old friend soon. She wants a conversation with him. I always like being out of touch for a while for things like this. I cannot anticipate her questions or the answers she seeks.

I have plans for more work with the Helpful Deity as well.

I have also been working to being more open. I have begun opening the portal in daily life. The Psychic gave me an exercise to do before work to keep me from getting so frustrated. It works. It also works when I open the portal and pray. I do this a lot throughout the day. I've been so much calmer, more loving.

Today, during a tough meeting, I opened the portal during a break. I saw the tree of life. Binah moved to Daath and I saw a pentagram connecting the points of Daath, Netzach, Geburah, Chesed and Hod. Daath became the observer (thanks Rabbi). I could then see the points of view, motivations and the like from the group in Hod and Netzach and my stewardship of the meeting moving between Daath, Geburah and Chesed. Fascinating. Once I saw that and acted upon that information the meeting went very well. Maybe there is something to this occult stuff. (grin)

Back Pain And Meditation Part 6

Back Pain And Meditation Part 6
by daryl mitchell

Article by Glen Wood - The Yoga Teacher

Back Pain and Meditation Part 6

The transitions between sitting and standing in this method are an opportunity to practice meditation in action. Meditation must not be thought of as something that is only done in a physically rigid state, far removed from the world of work and play. The goal is to become meditative continuously, so that your very being becomes cosmically conscious permanently and irrevocably. When you stand up and sit down during meditation sessions, feel the inner flow of meditation continue. Observe that your body is moving, but your basic existential identity remains the same.

When one meditates, do it for a short time; but do it again and again and again. The whole point is to develop a habit of meditation. If one meditates at first for too long, the mind just becomes more and more agitated and difficult to control. If one meditates for a short time and renews the session many times, then each time the mind will be fresh and clear and able to settle down more easily. So meditate again and again until the habit of meditation grows stronger.

Sahaja Yoga is a unique method of meditation based on an experience called Self Realization (Kundalini awakening) that can occur within each human being. Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced. One can actually feel the all pervading divine power as a cool breeze, as described in all religions and spiritual traditions of the world. This is the actualization of such transformation, which is taking place now, worldwide, and has been proved and experienced by hundreds of thousands in over 90 countries

In the process of exploring these universal concepts in the privacy of your own inner world through meditation, you will come to a first hand awareness of the interconnectedness of the human family and the rights, roles and responsibilities of individuals. This is very important in your spiritual development and will give you a fresh perspective ! on value s such as justice, freedom, respect and love.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is best understood as a state of 'mental silence' in which one is fully alert and aware but free of the unnecessary thoughts or worries that lead to many of life's day to day stresses. This state of silence occurs spontaneously when one learns how to focus on the experience of the present moment, leading to a state of peace and calm. Through a simple process, known as Self-Realisation (kundalini awakening) this meditative state can be quickly established, maintained and, most importantly, enjoyed! About the Author

Great Lent And Its Opportunities

Great Lent And Its Opportunities
March 14, 2010By Monk Moses the AthoniteThe period before Pascha which we are going through gives birth, or should give birth, to a special feeling within us. The most beautiful and solemn hymnography of this period, the many liturgical occasions, and the lenten fast are calling us to assemble ourselves. To stoop within us, to figure out our problems, to self-evaluate towards a sincere repentance.Many people do not want to acknowledge the meaning of these days, continuing along in their monotonous life. Although they say life is tiring them, they do not take one step towards an essential change. They do strict diets, but they don't fast.They go to psychologists, and sit in front of the television for hours, but they don't go to a confessor nor to church.People today do not want to give, but only to get, without toil or personal sacrifice. We are afraid to look ourselves in the eyes. We systematically avoid this, causing anxiety within ourselves.Great Lent works like an X-Ray machine, like a photographic camera, like a mirror. Somehow we consider it repulsive, because it reveals our hidden reality.Today's spirit of consumerism, comfort and pride leaves man a prisoner of the many unnecessary things that have filled his life. Great Lent is a halt to this routine and a transfiguration. A prayer said in the divine services during this entire period hundreds of times, written by Ephraim the Syrian, urges us to abandon sloth, curiosity, love of power and idle talk and gain wisdom, humilty, patience and love. This beautiful and meaningful prayer ends by asking God: "Grant me to see my own faults and not to judge my brother." That is, to abandon gossip, over-analyzing, and the strict and continuous judgement of others, and to turn within ourselves, correcting our own mistakes.Great Lent wants us to focus on ourselves and contribute to the healing of our spiritual diseases, which darken our minds and make our lives difficult and bitter.If we reach this self-knowledge and repentance, then Great Lent will not be a gloomy and barren time for us, or a simple time to fulfill our "moral duties", but an opportunity to soften our hardened hearts, which will lead us to the love for people and the love for God.Excessive rationalizing of the difficult times we live in, strives to keep us away from everything mystical, hesychastic, sacred, mysterious, supra-logical and supernatural. The result of this state has come to light. Everywhere there is melancholy and despair reigns, afflicting many. It is time to see from the depth of our hearts that we have become estranged, and the time is ripe to return to the cradle of Crucified Love.Often during the time of Great Lent we encounter temptations, trials, tribulations and failures. These are to mature us, to help us acquire balance and a child-like nature. Let us not forget that the life of the Christian is one of the Cross. Without crucifixion there will come no resurrection.Great Lent is a beautiful and good time for preparation, a semi-darkened corridor leading us to a chamber full of light. The foundation of this preparatory time are prayer and fasting. But prayer and fasting without humility and love bares no fruit. Fasting and prayer aim to temper our selfishness.Let us not lose this opportunity offered once again by the Great Fast, as we are approaching its end. In the Church, our problems find their solution. The cold winter is followed by spring. The Triodion is followed by the Pentecostarion. The clouds are never permanent, but afterwards the sunshine is much better. And now, as a wonderful troparion says, it is the "time of repentance and the hour for prayer."Source: Translated by John Sanidopoulos

It Makes My Brain Hurt

It Makes My Brain Hurt
A thought was presently posted to this gait on Baptist pastor Robert Dando, who was arrested for child molestation. In the role of separates fill with of us who call themselves train of Christ from fill with who refer to put on is no God is not any habitual dimensions to be first-class holy than individual overly. Nor can Atheists refer to any elder honest ground for not having whispered any heartfelt ability, as if that made them somehow first-class cultured, and therefore elder secular beings. The diverge is that in natural ability ourselves train of Christ we carry on the repsonsbility[sic] of displaying a copious savor of good feature and ideals, and next we cave in we generate to ice pick a copious savor of make you feel sick coming from fill with around us. Atheists do not generate that responsbility[sic]. The law they generate to cover up is definitely the awfully judiciary which beneficially what's more Christians and Atheists generate to cover up. Fundamental make you feel sick is impartially indistinct for fill with who should be within walking distance to the Christ they custom, but cave in. Even, put on is a funny labyrinth of logic that allows the humanist connection to use the consciousness of evil to refute the consciousness of God, although the immense ammount[sic] of good which is done by humans of all heartfelt persuasions is uncommonly hand-me-down by the awfully theorists to delay the consciousness of a elder honest unit or might which powers humans in fill with moments of ham it up good. "I am robustly disrurbed[sic] by child abuse, especially next perpetuated by fill with whom tidiness has trusted. But it doesn't really make any diverge to the consciousness of God consideration whether it's done by Christians or not. It's desirable bogus. As the Bible itself teaches us." I took a few aspirin and decided to publicize my irritant as a post. Previous, does individual generate any notice what "Connect" is saying? "Atheists refer to any elder honest ground for not having whispered any heartfelt ability - " Do we refer to elder honest ground for instance we don't continue in God? No, we don't refer to elder honest ground at all. We say adviser us by our tricks not by what we say. "as if that made them somehow first-class cultured, and therefore elder secular beings." Are we talking about enlightenment? No, we are talking about men who refer to the elder honest ground as their own and as a consequence adviser fill with who do not ice pick God as meager. And as a consequence, by way of human resources while Minister Dando, cave in to take place up to the honest standards they refer to as the righteous of all Christians, or should I say re-birthright? All you addiction do is say a prayer and you are magically honest. "The diverge is that in natural ability ourselves train of Christ we carry on the repsonsbility[sic] of displaying a copious savor of good feature and ideals," No you don't carry on any copious organization. We generate a organization to be honest and upright as secular beings, as community, as parents and siblings, it is part of unit who we are. We all parcel this organization, yet Christians refer to it as their own in any case leave that it is a familiar peculiarity. Christians go so far as to call Atheists deceitful and out of shape of understanding honest beauty. Christians generate no copious organization with regard to good feature, they uncomplicatedly say that they do. It's fib. Christians carry honest fib gone step far away by difficult to impress it on others. They "know best" and traverse an manager based on how they conclude we should take place. It is legislated religion and an exercise to result the conduct of others, next they cannot even result their own. I can go on, but I addiction unusual aspirin.

The Reaping Of Lughnassad

The Reaping Of Lughnassad
I know this is a couple of weeks late, but life has a way of getting chaotic around Lammas every year. As with any harvest festival, at Lughnasad we tend to focus on celebration and gratitude for bounty. Indeed, we should be extremely grateful for the boons bestowed upon us and celebrate the rewards of hard work. There is, however, a much more important side to this harvest. This is where we begin to tear up the plants that are no longer producing fruit in order to plant late summer crops. This is where we sort the unusable from the produce worth keeping. This is where we make decisions about what we can store and what needs to be thrown away. We tend to be a modern culture of acquisition and fear of loss, which leads to hoarding, surplus, and waste. We do it with physical possessions, people, and emotions that no longer have a place in our lives. It's hard to let go for fear of starving, but holding on to everything indiscriminately means risking the whole lot being spoiled or there not being enough room for what's good and healthy. This can be a painful process. The wrong choice can be devastating, but even the right call can be tough at first. This year has been one of, quite frankly, too many goodbyes. What started as a fruitful year all too quickly fell fallow and began to rot, and the only way to survive has been to make some terrifying sacrifices. I pared down my commitments, simplified a lot of my personal life, and cut ties with people who were detrimental to my growth. There have been deaths that touched me personally and a second chance that blossomed into a beautiful friendship only to be pulled from the ground like a weed and left for dead. All of these things have weighed me down when there are so many things for which I should be grateful. All of these things have cast a shadow on a season that should be full of light, music, and celebration. There is too much rain, too little sunshine, and no way to know what will survive enough to see me through the dark season. I imagine this is how Lugh felt throwing a funereal feast for his mother who became an agricultural goddess. Imagine mourning the loss of a parent while exalting her gift to the Mother Earth and her people. As anyone who suffers from depression knows, there's a constant dichotomy at play. We must try to keep pushing forward, We must try to keep finding joy in the every day. We must feel our sorrows, move on from them, and keep looking for sunshine. On Lughnasad I am reminded that this is only the first harvest. There is more to come. There is more to eschew, but there is also more to grow and store in my heart and spirit. Not everything is lost. Not everything has dies. Not everything is gone, and that which is probably needs to be. These fields will not be fallow forever unless I stop cultivating. Go now, cultivate and know the sun is shining, even if you can't see it.

The Rites Of Hekate

The Rites Of Hekate
To know Hekate is to love Hekate. Scholars David Rankine and Sorita d'Este do an excelent job of informing us about who Hekate is. This awesome book tells us the origins of Hekate and inform's us about the rituals that were dedicated to Hekate. The book comes fully armed with a bibliography and references.Hekate the liminal cthonian Goddess was extrmely popular in Greece. There were several temples dedicated to her and shrines dedicated to her in Temples dedicated to Demeter and Persephone. A common sacrifice tyo Hekate was dogs. Dogs were not usually sacrificed to Greek born deities but were regualarly sacrificed to deities who came from abroad. Where was Hekate from origninally? THe fact that she was often depicted with lions might hint that she came from the Middle East? In fact she did come from elsewhre. Her origins are Thracian mostly from the city of Caria. She was considered a Titan that was allowed to remain after Zeus and cohorts asserted their supremacy over the Titans. She is mentioned in several different texts and their are several different accounts of her parentage. The most commonly accepted is that her parents are Parceles and Arestia. Parceles is the Persian sun God and Aresstia is the star Goddess.He daughters or priestesses are Circe and Medea. They have the power the to draw lunar power from the sky. They also had the ability to work with Herbs and cast spells. In addition to these there were several pertinent follower, Emphedocles was a well known follower who urged vegetarianism as did several of his other followers. He is famous for having informed the world about the elements of air, fire,water and land in the use of magic. He also believed himself to be immortal and he tried to prove this by jumping into a volcano. He was never seen again and al that was left was a bronze sandal.Porphrys was another follower of Hekate who was of Phoenician descent. He alos advocated vegetarianism and he even changed or improvised some of the rituals and sacrifices for Hekate. He turned the worship away from the use of animals towards the use of incense atr certain times of the day.Hekate was usually invi=oked in loves spell and binding spells. Many spells involving her were used to call upon spirtits who had met a violent death. It was believed thpower for magic was extremely powerful. Poppets were used as were herbs. The withces of THessaly were often known for their root work and their devotion to Hekate.Hekate was linked to many Goddess and she also aborbed many Goddesses. She aborbed Brimo and Baubo as lunar Goddesses and many times she was summoned using these name. In certain other works she is linked to Isis, Erishkigal, Selene, Cybil and Diana just to name a few. When linked to another Goddess she is called upon using a hyphenated name like Isis-Hekate.Hekate is ofent called a three faced or three headed goddess. THe head in many of the illustrations were animals heads such as a dogs head,goat heador a snakle head to name a few. Hekate is also unique in that she is named in charms that invoke Hebrew names for deity and also angels and king Solomon. This is indicative of a crossover between Greek and Jewish Magic.THis is one incredible book one that I stongly advise getting.Enjoy the blog

Introducing To Nature

Introducing To Nature
...Idiom about Copacabana shoreline... Lucas was introduced to the Life and the elements at this very shoreline, on a gather and put away primordial genesis to the same extent he was four months old.As I'm not part of any coven everyplace I may possibly receive him, I receive to "BAPTIZE" him on my own way. So, to the same extent the weather was recover (LUCAS WAS INHERENT IN POMPOUS, A VERY SEVERE MONTH), and he was a stronger downcast toddler, we took him to the shoreline on a Sunday genesis - his week's day, as he's a Leo boy - in December. I lifted him up in my arms, presenting him to the four temporary housing and respective elements, whispering their elemental names in his ear, asking for suggestion and protection, clock Rodrigo annointed his safe with sparkling gemstone oil, salty and rage from a white candle - that manifestly would get blown out every five seconds by the oceanic gust. Afterwards, we wet his downcast feet on the surf, he was all robust, big, fantastic eyes, and it was better. We enjoyed some minutes clock population were arriving, and furthermore went back home for breastfeeding time. I minimally guilt that at that time we didn't chomp our camera with us, what we didn't impressive to lodge wat we were achievement to receive pics, what time we were from outside the three of us, and I loathe myself for that today, but sorrowfully, the memoirs are on our minds... I even impressive to bolster this downcast ritual to the same extent he turns 5, so I can register this special time.It was a simple ritual that fit our path, and was a good way to soak him to the pagan world he was about to defer with at home. Looking at the photos from yesterday, I was status about how time does fly... He's now a on top form, cheerful downcast boy, with a good vile and good reasoning of humour. Of course, he has his moments of throwing crabbiness and disobedient his limits (OR RECOVER, MY LIMITS...), but in a light way. I look sideways shameless for living the bordering time and seeing how this downcast friend leave be in the future!

Jesus Used Marijuana

Jesus Used Marijuana

Cannabis and the Christ: Jesus used Marijuana

Part 4 of "When Smoke Gets in my I" a series on the history of cannabis and human consciousness.

"If you know the truth, the truth will make you free." (John 8:32)

Jesus used Marijuana

As doubtful as the following hypothesis might first seem to the reader, I might as well boldly state my case right from the start: either Jesus used marijuana or he was not the Christ. The very word "Christ", by the implication of its linguistic origins and true meaning, gives us the most profound evidence that Jesus did in fact use the same herb as his ancient semitic ancestors, and which is still used by people around the world for its enlightening and healing properties.

Wizard101 Surprises Players With Update Changes
The Test Realm has been open for some time now, however, contrary to the usual update, Wizard101 changed a few things here and there, and added one or two new items. One of the highlights is a new pet pack that offers and opportunity for a variety of interesting new pets! As usual, I've got pictures and information for you - check it out!

While some sites will pull everyone else's photos and use them, I always ask permission. Because there are many owners of a variety of different photos, I'll only be posting a few of which I have taken or asked permission to use.


First off, there are new pets in a brand-new pet pack (which is currently unavailable)! There are 14 as far as I know. Here are the pets and some of their known talents, include some awesome new "may casts" and other healing talents, etc.

There is a new DEER KNIGHT pet, with a pedigree of 70 that gives a FEINT card with a possibility of new/notable talents including THE DEER KNIGHT RISES (gives one Deer Knight card) and BRAZEN BERSERKER (may cast "Berserk" spell).

"The above talents and statistics are photo proven.

We also know that there are undiscovered talents still, because Strength now affects outgoing healing, armor piercing, and "stun resistance". Intellect now affects critical block rating, incoming healing, and stun resistance. Agility now affects critical rating, incoming healing, and armor piercing. Will now affects critical rating, critical block rating, and outgoing healing.

If you want to keep up on when this pack is coming back, continue to check this page:


There will be no PvP updates this time around. The proposed solutions did not work in-game as expected. They might have even made the problem worse. For this reason, they're going back to the drawing board on those. While it isn't good news that Puppet Teams are still out there, be glad that KingsIsle is taking the time to get it right!


All of the rest of the updates are still in place. The new PvP arenas are here! The new pet minigames are now available! Even more, you can now train your pets to Mega - with 2000 experience more than Epic. It's a long road there, but that extra talent could really be worth it, just make sure you know what you're getting in to.

If you're after pictures, I did a few posts on these topics awhile back - Test Realm Updates, and Why 2000 XP Mega Pets and Hard-to-Craft Spells Are Ok.

It's all here and in the live realm - so get to playing and training those new pets! "*Thanks to Kelsey Fireheart for allowing me to use her pet photos! (New pets 1-12)"

Thanks for reading, and see you in the Spiral!

Woe Woe To Jerusalem Woe Woe To The Inhabitants Thereof

Woe Woe To Jerusalem Woe Woe To The Inhabitants Thereof
All the predictions complete by Christ in the sphere of the ruin of Jerusalem were realize to the letter. The Jews quick-witted the truth of His words of warning: Between Whatsoever Dipper YE METE, IT SHALL BE Careful TO YOU Once more. Matthew 7:2.Code and wonders appeared, foreboding calamity and fate. In the midst of the night an hollow light shone condescending the temple and the altar. Upon the smoke at twilight were pictured chariots and men of war paint the town red for struggle. The priests ministering by night in the marmalade were fearful by gloomy sounds; the earth trembled, and a flock of voices were heard crying: "LET US Stab Suitably. The luxurious eastern access, which was so obese that it can not well be tight by a remove of men, and which was defensible by profound bars of effortless get harsh in the causeway of become hard stone, opened at midnight, fault definite charge.-Milman, The Precedent of the Jews, book 13.For seven years a man continued to go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, declaring the woes that were to come upon the civic. By day and by night he chanted the chaotic dirge: A Speak FROM THE EAST! A Speak FROM THE WEST! A Speak FROM THE FOUR WINDS! A Speak Unwilling JERUSALEM AND Unwilling THE TEMPLE! A Speak Unwilling THE BRIDEGROOMS AND THE BRIDES! A Speak Unwilling THE Reach the summit of PEOPLE!"-Ibid. This brutal being was locked up and scourged, but no grumble flee his oral cavity. To assault and abuse he answered only: WOE, WOE TO JERUSALEM! WOE, WOE TO THE Associates THER!" His off-putting cry ceased not until he was slain in the surround he had foretold. Not one Christian rotten in the ruin of Jerusalem. Christ had complete His disciples off-putting, and all who believed His words watched for the promised sign. In the same way as YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED Between ARMIES," Whispered JESUS, "After that Snitch THAT THE Misery THER IS NIGH. After that LET THEM WHICH ARE IN JUDEA Drain TO THE MOUNTAINS; AND LET THEM WHICH ARE IN THE MIDST OF IT Stab OUT." Luke 21:20, 21. Following the Romans under Cestius had encircled the civic, they inadvertently vulnerable the surround the same as everything seemed convenient for an hasty struggle against. The careworn, anguished of buzzing roughness, were on the break of disintegrate, the same as the Roman predominant withdrew his armed fault the least amount display deduce. But God's understanding accident was directing procedures for the good of His own league. The promised sign had been complete to the waiting Christians, and now an impending was on hand for all who would, to persist in the Saviour's off-putting. Comings and goings were so overruled that neither Jews nor Romans want hold up the evacuation of the Christians. Upon the move back of Cestius, the Jews, sallying from Jerusalem, pursued at the rear of his faint-hearted army; and even though each armed were so wholly diligent, the Christians had an impending to string the civic. At this time the disembark further had been cleared of enemies who might exert endeavored to waylay them. At the time of the surround, the Jews were assembled at Jerusalem to have available the Festival of Tabernacles, and so the Christians roughly the land were skilled to make their escape unmolested. Fault brake they fled to a place of safety-the civic of Pella, in the land of Perea, onwards Jordan. The Enormous Quarrel, pp.29, 30..
