Sacred Fire
Date: 2012-03-19   By: Ellen Evert Hopman
Two of the most popular deities within the Celtic pantheon are Lugh and Brighid, both of whom Fire deities invoked during festivals of Wheel of the Year. Here Ellen Evert Hopman, Druid and author of Priestess of the Fire Temple, discusses the sacred fire of the Celts and how we, too, can honor the fire deities.
Bringing the Major Arcana Down to Earth: Discover Your Best Workout Through the Cards
Date: 2012-02-27   By: Barbara Moore
Most tarot readers consider the Major Arcana cards to be doorways to powerful archetypal energy, life lessons, important life changes, and events beyond our control. Like her colleagues, Tarot expert Barbara Moore accepts this view, but she also worries that by imbuing the Major cards with such importance, they may become too heady, too for removed from us, too unapproachable. Discover a technique to reunite the Major Arcana with our physical existence—and maybe discover your ideal healthy activities, as suggested by the cards, along the way.
Psychic Development: Bare the Soles to Bare the Soul
Date: 2012-04-23   By: Alexandra Chauran
Whether you’re just beginning to get in touch with your psychic side, or you are already an advanced reader, deeply in touch with your own inner senses, there are many best practices that can help you with the practical, the spiritual, and the intellectual components of accuracy and precision. One of the simplest psychic tips to implement is to remove your shoes and socks before performing a psychic reading for yourself or others. Alexandra Chauran, author of So You Want to Be a Psychic Intuitive? and Crystal Ball Reading for Beginners explains the connection between bare feet and heightened psychic awareness.
Living with a Ghost
Date: 2012-03-26   By: Kenneth W. Harmon
In the summer of 2007, Ghost Under Foot author Kenneth Harmon and his family discovered that they had a ghost inhabiting their Fort Collins, Colorado home. Spurred by paranormal experiences at the famously haunted Stanley Hotel, the Harmons begin their investigation. Instead of diminishing, the ghostly experiences increase as the Harmons grow closer to Mary Bell Wilson, the spirit inhabiting their home.
Revealing the Books of Secrets
Date: 2012-04-09   By: David Rankine
Over the last thousand years there have been several distinct streams of Western magical practice. Running parallel are the grimoires, which focus on preparation and complex procedures to produce effective communication and interaction with spiritual beings, and the Books of Secrets, full of simple techniques using easily available ingredients. Both of these traditions have influenced many of the more recent magical traditions and practices that have developed in recent centuries. However, until recently the importance of the early Book of Secrets tradition has been largely ignored. Here magician David Rankine explains the rich, magical history behind these books.

Date: 2012-03-05   By: Michelle DesPres

We are entering the year 2012, and a time of great change is upon us, especially within the United States. How do we best embrace the upcoming changes? How to do we balance healthy communities and country with a healthy self? Michell DesPres, author of The Clairvoyant Path, discusses our our intuition can lead us to positive and permanent change—within ourselves and throughout the world around us.
The Economics and Politics of Incense
Date: 2012-03-12   By: Carl F. Neal
When thinking about the world's history, the use of incense is not something that is likely to come to mind. However, incense has had a shaping role in the economies and politics of societies the world over for thousands of years. How can such a small, humble stick hold so much power? Carl F. Neal, author of Incense Magick, explains.
Sources of Magick
Date: 2012-04-16   By: Donald Michael Kraig
Magick is one hundred percent natural; there is evidence of its use as far back as the earliest humans. But how has magick grown and evolved in that time span? Author and magician Donald Michael Kraig investigates three newly-released books from Golden Hoard Press that, in their original forms, were used by the teachers of the teachers of the teachers who are teaching magick today.
A Few Thoughts on Tarot Spreads
Date: 2012-02-15   By: Barbara Moore
When Tarot expert Barbara Moore first began studying the tarot, there weren't many books on spreads, and the ones that were available were mostly collections of spreads with no explanations or directions. This left her with many questions, and led to a ten-year tarot journey through spreads. Here she discusses techniques to revamp your tarot spreads (and your tarot practice), as well as her new book, Tarot Spreads: Layouts & Techniques to Empower Your Readings
Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience
Date: 2012-04-02   By: Graham Nicholls
For many skeptics, the out of body experience (OBE) can be explained away or simply ignored. But what of the evidence from recorded accounts, controlled experiments, and research into near-death experiences? Graham Nicholls, author of Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience, explains his new book, and how these powerful experiences can be had by anyone once we step away from the everyday and reach out for something truly life-affirming.

Today's world offers us many opportunities to create and live in stress; even though it has been many thousands of years since we have had to fear attack from wild animals, modern man has his fight-or-flight system turned on most days, and with no idea how to turn it off.
