TAKE ACTION! The Time Is Now For Bold Climate ActionTake action today!

It’s our obligation to protect our communities, as well as our children and future generations, from the effects of climate change.

Take Action Today!
Dear Charlene,
The Philippines is reeling from one of the most intense storms in recorded history. It is just one of many nations whose people live at the dangerous frontlines of climate change. People all across the United States and the world are now standing with the Philippines, calling on world leaders to make real climate pollution reduction commitments.
President Obama and the EPA have announced a first-ever federal carbon pollution standard for every new power plant built in America. Power plants are our single largest source of climate change pollution, so this is a major step in the right direction. The world needs this kind of climate action—and MUCH more.
Be a part of this change. Show the President and the nation that you support this climate action and even bolder action. Get on the official public record demanding climate action now.
Your voice, your letters, your actions matter. Please take climate action now, and please share with your friends.
Thank you,
Kari Birdseye
Liz Judge
Media Director
Take action today!
P.S. It’s time to urge our friends and family members to join us in acting on climate change. Please share this with your networks and urge action now.

From Patti Wigington, your Guide to Paganism / Wiccan

Many magical traditions use poppets, or dolls.

This week, we're talking about poppet magic. Although tv shows and movies typically show poppets as the stereotypical "voodoo doll", poppets have been around for a long time. There are a number of different ways to create a poppet, and they can be used to harm or to heal. Bear in mind that some magical traditions discourage the use of poppets. If you're not sure whether or not it's okay for you to use poppet magic, you may want to check with someone in your tradition.

Intro to Poppet Magic
A poppet is usually made from cloth or fabric, but you can also make one from clay, wax, wood, or just about any other material. You can fill your poppet with herbs, stones, bits of wood, paper, or anything else that suits your needs. Read Full Article

A History of Poppets

The use of dolls in sympathetic magic goes back several millennia. Back in the days of ancient Egypt, the enemies of Ramses III (who were numerous, and included some of his harem women and at least one high-ranking official) used wax images of the Pharoah, to bring about his death. Dolls and other figures were used by the Greeks and Romans as well. Read Full Article

Crafting Your Magical Poppets
A poppet can be as simple or as elaborate as you like -- it all depends on how much time and effort you want to put into it. You can construct one out of just about any material -- cloth, clay, wood, wax. Use your imagination! In some magical traditions, it's believed that the more work you put into it, and the more complex it is, the stronger your link will be to your goal. Read Full Article

[Psychic-Friends-Near-SL] Yay! Psychic Friends! Let's Meet!

Hi everybody!!! I have gotten some awesome feedback on what some of you would like to have as some of our meetup groups!! Thank you!!!
Here are a few ideas...let me know if you have any more.
I would like to begin holding meetups where people can practice developing their abilities in a safe environment and gain confidence to go out in the world and provide readings.  This can propel your life forward in an astronomical way, socially, mentally, financially and you share your gift and love for the world.
Psychic gifts come in a myriad of ways, so I think that having meetups for the different abilities would be the best.  If you are a real master in your field let me know if your interested in teaching a basic workshop.
It was also suggested that we have a "Getting To Know You" party. I think that sounds like a blast.
With the holidays approaching we are moving into the time where depression, sadness, loneliness and the like are rampant, I would like to see us going out and supporting those people with our gifts, and in kind you will develop your abilities more rapidly, gain new friendships, spiritual relationships etc. while earning some extra money.
And it is a misnomer that your having a "gift" means you have to gift it away.  It is a respectable living doing readings for others and you should receive energy in kind for the energy you are giving away.  If you want to give it away that is fantastic, if you want to earn something for it, that is fantastic too.  It doesn't matter, whatever makes you happy is all that matters.
Please email me with the following abilities you either possess, want to develop, or want to learn more about.
  • Aura Reading
  • Tarot
  • Angel Reading
  • Channeling
  • Automatic Writing
  • Clairvoyance
  • Developing Intuition
  • Clairaudience
  • Clairsentient
  • Divination
  • Mediumship
  • Psychometry
  • Precognition
  • Telepathy
If you are interested in having a party then let me know as well.  I need a body count so I can get an idea of what kind of space and amount of food we will need.

When the wave of fortune takes you, ride it with gratitude and a big grin. Life is what you make it.

Compassion is not something that we do merely to make a show of our feelings and emotions, or to make a show of ourselves being important. Rather, we need to think about what it is that the other person needs.

NOTE TO SELF AS WE SLIP-SLIDE INTO THE HOLIDAY SEASON: "One kind word can warm three winter months."

Share and Print Spells: The Medicine Wheel 

Some of these shares are old. Some of just cool, some are fun and some of these have very old spell words and ideas. They are not always going to sound "Wiccan friendly." Remember not all Witches are Wiccan and some of these spells, poems and shares can be older than Wicca. 

Follow that Star ...

It is the mission of each true knight ...
His duty ... nay, his privilege!
To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go;
To right the un-rightable wrong.

To love, pure and chaste, from afar,
To try, when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star!

This is my Quest to follow that star,
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far,
To fight for the right
Without question or pause,
To be willing to march into hell
For a heavenly cause!

And I know, if I'll only be true
To this glorious Quest,
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this,
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach the unreachable stars!

- Joe Darion, Man of La Mancha

Teach your children what we have taught our children - that the Earth is our Mother. What ever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know. The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood that unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. We did not weave the web of life; We are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the Web, We do to ourselves.

Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata (@Astro_Wakata) posted this image of Earth from space station to Twitter and wrote, “It looks like the Aurora curtain over Canada is extending up to about a few hundred kilometers above Earth surface.”

Friends, I appreciate the thoughtful discussion about the article I posted last night about the professional hunter, Melissa Bachman. What distresses me, however, are threats of violence against her as a person, or ad hominem attacks on other fans.

Let us keep the discussion civil and enlightening. There are arguments worth considering from each side, including some interesting points about how how the nature conservatory in question benefits and stays operational from the sale of sport hunting licenses. Although this does not change my opinion, it is is important to be informed of the arguments on both sides so that we can have a mature and constructive debate. Thank you for being great fans and respecting my wishes in this regard on this and other topics that prove controversial.

Mamma's Mulled Wine Recipe
Perfect to enjoy all season long.

1 cup sugar
Fresh orange slices

1 orange, studded with 20 whole cloves, then quartered and seeds removed

Mix all ingredients in a large pot (or slow cooker) over low heat. Simmer gently at least 30 minutes before serving. (Don’t let it boil; once it boils, it spoils.) Add extra sugar if you prefer a sweeter wine.

Garnish with orange slices and cinnamon sticks and serve in wineglasses or clear teacups.

When We Two Parted

by George Gordon, Lord Byron

WHEN we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow--
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame:
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me--
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:
Lond, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

I secret we met--
I silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.

~Lavender Wands~ 

Young ladies in Victorian times used to while away the afternoon hours making lavender "wands" or "bottles" by encasing fresh lavender heads in their own stalks, then weaving them with ribbons. In addition to having a pleasing scent, lavender also has a moth-chasing property. Once they are thoroughly dry they may be placed in a linen cupboard.

3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 stick of butter
Chocolate chips
Chopped Almonds or pecans. Enough to cover the bottom a 9" x 9" pan with some extra to put on top of the chocolate chips

Melt the sugar and butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for seven minutes stirring constantly. Test in cold water. When the thread cracks in the cold water, pour mixture into a buttered 9" x 9" pan with chopped nuts in the bottom.

Put chocolate chips on top. Cover to contain the heat to melt the chocolate. Spread the melted chocolate and sprinkle with remaining chopped nuts. Let cool. Break into servings.

I was crying when Angels left me behind yesterday. They didn't have room in the car because they were saving six of my friends from the same kill shelter. But they couldn't stop thinking about me and my cries for help, so they want to come back and save me today, before it's too late. Can you help them do that? They are calling me Gratitude.

*'Get off thy ass shall be the whole of the law’. 

As this year winds to a close, I have taken some time for self-reflection and realize that I could have done many things differently. 

I have made many mistakes. 

As painful as they have been, I have grown and matured much because of them.

It is my wish for this coming year that we all make many mistakes.

It’s easy to sit in an armchair comfortably positioned on the sidelines, lamenting our lives and blaming others and circumstances for our perceived failures.

The true test comes in getting off our ample asses and fearlessly Doing Something to make Life different.

Be bold, step out, step forth and grab Life by throat.

Jump. Make your mistakes and make them fearlessly. - BW

From Neil Gaiman:

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.

You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself.
Make New Mistakes.

Make glorious, amazing mistakes.

Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before.

Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever”. – Neil Gaiman
