Pagan Parenting: Flower Picking

It’s a hot and humid day, but it’s also overcast with a call for rain. Probably not the best time to visit the beach… The extra shade means it’s more comfortable outside than in, though, so it’s a great day to explore outside but stay close to home in case we need shelter. So BeeContinue reading “Pagan Parenting: Flower Picking”

Honoring Furry Friends as Ancestors of Heart

My sister recently lost one of her kitties to old age and disease.  The elderly cat, named “Carmel”, had reached the crazy age of 17 or 18, which is ancient for a cat.  Her hearing was mostly gone, and her eyes were riddled with cataracts.  Her hips and legs were starting to give out onContinue reading “Honoring Furry Friends as Ancestors of Heart”

Visiting the Source

Sometimes we have to take a pilgrimage to where it all began – to the source of our spirituality.  By that, I mean the places where we first felt the stirrings of spirits around us, observed the interconnection of everything, and where our soul first learned to dance.  For me, that place is my childhood homeContinue reading “Visiting the Source”

Shrine Facelift

Since my Ancestors’ shrine moved and is looking much better, I thought it was only right to give the Nature Spirits’ indoor shrine a facelift! After dusting, I started to find places for the various bones, shells, feathers, crystals, etc and realized that I should place things according to realm – land, sea, and sky!Continue reading “Shrine Facelift”

A Walk in the Forest

  When I woke up this morning, I felt the forest calling.  As if to emphasize it, a crow cawed as I shared my feelings about it on Twitter. Now that the wind isn’t so biting and the ground not so slippery, I could no longer ignore the calling to get back into the forest.Continue reading “A Walk in the Forest”
