Building Empathy in These Tough Times
Date: 2012-02-06   By: Kerri Connor
Life is made up of both the good and the bad; without the bad times, we wouldn't know how to appreciate the good. But when we are experiencing a tough time, it is becoming increasingly rare to find empathy from others. Kerri Connor, author of Spells for Tough Times, explains why we need to experience both the good and the bad, and provide empathy, sympathy, and support to those around us who may be going through the same.

On Wings Everywhere Ascending: The Relevance of Dragons in the Modern World
Date: 2011-09-26   By: Shawn MacKenzie
In the simpler times of long ago, our ancestors struck flint to tinder and, with deer on the spit and wolf cubs at their feet, watched shadow monsters dance across cave walls. They knew Dragons intimately and held them close. How could they not? With primordial majesty, Dragons ruled earth, sea, and sky. They were reminders of the danger beyond the firelight, the world beyond comprehension. They were Awe personified, revered for their wisdom and at-one-ment with the Universe, dreaded for their strength and elemental energy. But what about the importance of Dragons in today's society? Shawn MacKenzie, author of The Dragon-Keeper's Handbook, explains just how truly relevant Dragons are to us.
Awaken the Druid Within!
Date: 2011-08-01   By: Penny Billington
In our daily lives, most of us are aware of a yearning to "Otherness:" an insistent pull to an ephemeral "something," which could make us dissatisfied with the world of the five senses. We feel instinctively that, "There is more than this." And, in our urge for connection to that mysterious "something," we start to look around. Some look up, some look down; many look away from their everyday lives. Druids look around, to the green and natural world around us. So how does one embrace the Druidic life? Penny Billington, author of The Path of Druidry, explains how to awaken the Druid within.
Creating Ceremony
Date: 2011-07-25   By: Katalin Koda
For thousands of years, human beings have honored our connection to the earth, seasons, and major life transitions through ceremony, ritual, and storytelling. These practices are the sacred technology of indigenous people and are an inherent part of our past and ancestral wisdom. In these current times of disconnection, feelings of lack and poverty, and polluted air and waters, the importance of creating ceremony is becoming more apparent. Katalin Koda, author of Fire of the Goddess and Sacred Path of Reiki, provides easy ways to create your own ceremony so that we too can reconnect with the earth, empower ourselves, heal, and transform into more balanced humans.
Magic Wands: The Ultimate Magical Tools
Date: 2011-07-18   By: Alferian Gwydion MacLir
The stories of Tolkien and Rowling (and the subsequent movies based upon them) have enchanted the idea of a magic wand for many of us. But exactly how does one make a magical wand, imbuing it with the proper energy? Alferian Gwydion MacLir, author of Wandlore: The Art of Crafting the Ultimate Magical Tool, discusses the art of crafting a powerful magical wand.
Egyptian Prosperity Magic for Beginners
Date: 2011-07-04   By: Claudia R. Dillaire
The ancient Egyptians had a different spin on prosperity, and it requires a change in thinking. Prosperity was not individual, though they did have upper and lower classes. Prosperity was agriculturally-based, so if the crops thrived, everyone benefited; if they failed, it affected everyone. Knowing this, how can a modern practitioner approach Egyptian prosperity magic? Claudia Dillaire, author of Egyptian Prosperity Magic, explains.
Shopping for the Magickal Amid the Mundane
Date: 2011-06-24   By: Blake Octavian Blair
If you’re lucky enough to live within a reasonable distance of a metaphysical, New Age, or occult shop, you may not give a second thought as to where you can obtain your witchy supplies. However, I often find myself in conversation with those not lucky enough to be near such a store, and they express frustration and exasperation about where they are ever going to find that much-sought-after ritual supply or spell ingredient. In this day and age, of course, there are a myriad of websites and online shops; however, it is also a good idea to try balancing Internet resources with supporting your community’s economy by shopping locally. In reality, the answer to your magickal needs may be closer than you think.
Fifteen Minutes to Better Magick
Date: 2011-06-20   By: Melanie Marquis
No one likes to talk about it, but we've all experienced it: the disappointment of ineffective magick. Spells don't always work, and the frustration caused by magickal failure can build up over time and hold us back from achieving our full potential. So how can we avoid the mire of mediocre magick? Melanie Marquis, author of The Witch's Bag of Tricks, offers a few practices that—with just fifteen minutes a day—can strengthen your magickal practice.
