A Light in the Darkness: The Light Personal Names Shed on Ancient Paganism
Date: 2011-12-19   By: K.M. Sheard
Names. We all have them. They are so integral to our society that few people ever pause to reflect on their cultural significance and what they reveal about our way of life. But even today, naming practices vary considerably across the world. And the naming practices of our ancestors were equally diverse. And, whatís more, they offer us a unique window through which to glimpse their lives, how they lived, and what they believed. What do the names of our Pagan predecessors reveal about their way of lif? K.M. Sheard, author of Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names, explains.
A Link Between Power and Image
Date: 2013-02-04   By: Lexa Olick
Over recent years, we have seen great strides in digital technology, and many of our digital devices double as cameras. But, many of our photos taken may never again be viewed.

A Little Piece of Sandpaper
Date: 2008-07-16   By: Donald Michael Kraig
Youíve seen it in old movies: A safecracker takes out a small piece of sandpaper and roughs up the skin of his fingertips so he can more easily detect the movement of the tumblers in the lock.

A Little Taste of Miracle
Date: 2009-03-02   By: Clea Danaan
As omnivores living busy lives, we often grapple with where to get our food. Fresh versus fast? Local versus cheap? Organic versus free range? Clea Danaan, author of Voices of the Earth and Sacred Land suggests that we return to gardening ourselves, not simply for the production of our food, but because gardening heals us and returns us to the miracle of life, reminding us that we are in a relationship with the Earth, with whom we co-create life.

Ancient peoples celebrated Lughnasadh as a time of great happiness, enjoying the gifts of the earth. Yet the harvest also began the waning half of the year, when it became time to stock up for
A Magical Meditation for Lovers
Date: 2004-07-26   By: Yasmine Galenorn
The meditative state is our natural state. When we reach this state, we recognize what lies at the root of all our experiences, and we become fully aware. Meditation awakens the fundamental and innate intelligence of being - the light of our spirit ...
A May Eve Incantation
Date: 2006-04-25   By: Timothy Roderick
Beltane, or May Eve, is one of the most important holidays in the pagan year. It is seen oftentimes as equal to Samhain, its opposite festival in the calendar, as both days are noted for the thinning of the veil that separates this world from the otherworld. However, where Samhain celebrates death, Beltane celebrates life and growth, manifested this time of year by fruit and flower. The hallmark of Beltane is fertility, and it is said that in ancient times peasants would light Beltane bonfires and make love in the fields to promote a good growing season through sympathetic magic. However, Beltane isn't only about sexual union, but rather the union of all opposites, and the new things that are created through that union. To get in touch with the fertile flavor of the season, try this simple incantation from Timothy Roderick's

Date: 2011-02-28   By: Linda Raedisch
While working on her book Night of the Witches, author Linda Raedisch discovered a meeting and subsequent correspondence between a now-elderly friend and Gerald Gardner.

A Most Haunted Hour
Date: 2013-10-08   By: Lisa Rogers
Yes, I'm a geek, or maybe a nerd. I'm whatever you'd call someone who has a deep-rooted passion for old buildings. I love the architecture, the smell, the feel, and most of all the history behind them. This passion has led me to many wonderful places and has allowed me to meet the most interesting people, both in and out of body. Before your
A Paranormal Life
Date: 2013-09-02   By: Marcus F. Griffin
Is it possible to have so many paranormal experiences in a lifetime that we come to view them as commonplace? Marcus F. Griffin, author of Playing with the Devil, certainly believes so. Here he details his life of experiences "beyond normal explanation."

In today's modern society, we are trapped by our day-to-day lives. Step by step, and from generation to generation, we are losing our primal intuition. No longer do most of us feel that type of intuition, that which takes over our actions to protect ourselves and what is ours. The comforts of our modern society do nothing to keep our internal,... read this article
