How To Make Beautiful Magic Together

I mentioned in one of my YouTube videos that, back in the day, one of the earliest books I’d read on Paganism was In The Shadow of the Shaman, by Amber Wolfe. And since I’ve been going back to basics, I picked it up again. And I noticed something that I only cursorily glanced over before.

Throughout the book, Wolfe refers to, “wheels within wheels.”

A quote from the introduction is, “All of the worlds of nature spin like wheels for the shaman … All worlds spin and vibrate for the shaman.” Another is, “Like the shamans of old, we may learn to ride the wheels within wheels, which are all the vibrations of the worlds of Nature.”

A Witch’s Words of Wisdom

When I think of “words of wisdom,” I think of old adages that have been passed down through time. Things your grandmother would say, for example. Tidbits of advice that, when followed, made life easier, and hardship more manageable.

So I thought – why not talk a little bit about some of the things my Elders taught me? And then it occurred to me that all of the words of wisdom I live by don’t necessarily come from my Elders.

Have You Been Called By A Deity?

Have you ever been called by a Goddess or God? Pegged for service, so-to-speak? What does that mean to you?

I think sometimes people don’t recognize what being called is, or what it truly means, before they jump right in and try to “go all the way.”

As I understand it, particular Goddesses or Gods call to us. Some people pick a God/dess and run with it (like doing a Goddess Immersion exercise, which I talk about in a few YouTube vids). I believe that, in general, most deities are keen to work with a person … but there are always exceptions to the rule.

My 10 Most Influential Pagan or Craft Books

Someone asked me just the other day how I felt about learning Wicca, Witchcraft or other forms of Paganism or magic from a shelf of books. In all honesty, I have no problem with it. I’d prefer, in fact, that people would learn from books as opposed to the Internet any day. But in an ideal world, I’d rather students learn from actual teachers. I’m a huge proponent of Coven-based learning. But also know that I don’t insist every human being who wants to learn Witchcraft drop their lives and join a Coven. Truthfully, Coven-life (or even Witchcraft) is not for everyone. It is not a practice for the masses, regardless of what all the fun-loving gooey light and love authors want to tell you.
