Reincarnation is an idea that may seem strange, exotic, or even a little nonsensical to the western mind, but in fact it plays a vital role in understanding our purpose in the universe and why we spend time on this planet at all.

Back in the “dark ages” (say, circa 1990), everything was just a little bit different. Calling a friend if you weren’t home meant digging for a quarter and locating a phone booth.

From the very advent of the spoken word among humanity, language has been considered something sacred and magickal, and remains so to this day. Still, priests and mystics have begun to look into the past for sacred language for use in religious rites.

You can tell a lot about a crystal by its color and the magical way that a crystal interacts with light. In fact, color may be the single most important factor you will need to know in order to work with crystals.

As silly as it may sound, there's something both magical and therapeutic about plunging your hands into the soil.
