Re: Raising Pagan Children

I have a one year old and have not yet started religion with him. I feel when he is older, probably at two I will start pointing out the elements in everyday life like when we grill, bath or garden. I always say prayer with/for him when he falls asleep in my arms. I would like to include him in ritu...

Do you think it is important?

Do you think it is important for those of us that choose the pagan path to read materials like the Qabalah, Quran, or texts on mythology? I feel like reading these texts might give me a better understanding of where paganism draws alot of their aspects like the tree of life, the four elements, etc. ...

Re: I guess it doesnt appeal to me..

I just want to add that I am no way bashing anyone..I can see how it would appeal to others. I guess I am still searching for the right path and I am looking for some direction that anyone can offer from their experiences

Wicca doesn't appeal to me

I have been noticing that many around her are wiccan. I personally am eclectic and do take some of what I do/believe/practice from Wicca. But too me it all seems to ceremonial or involved. I don't understand the need for the tools. Candles, herbs, even inscense I get. But a wand, sword,chalice,etc. ...

Re: I need guidance, confidence, I feel unsure and trapt

I have tried talking to him. He says he will try to help more and he does for a day then reverts. I also don't think the way I feel is a phase, we were having issues when I found out I was pregnant. I decided to stay for my child regardless of my happiness. I just feel selfish. It would also be some...

I need guidance, confidence, I feel unsure and trapt

Please bare with me while I quickly get through this so I don't bore you. My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years, we live together and have since the beginning, and we have a one year old son together. He is a great father but I am getting fed up with many of his other actions. I feel as ...

Re: ideas for book of shadows

What about using pressed leaves, herbs or flowers?
You could also print off symbols, runes, or pictures that mean something to you. Or you could use cardstock and stamps to decorate.

Re: What is Your Element

I am a Fire sign, but as I have gotten older, I have felt more connected to Earth. I don't know what that means or anything, but I think it is just age.

Re: Oils, oils and more oils!

All I know is that both almond oil and jojoba oil are bother VERY good for your skin. Jojoba is the closet oil that naturally matches our own. And almond oil has lots of good vitamins in it.

Re: Advice for meditating

Jogging is a great example...I never thought about it as a form of meditation but when you jog, you become very aware of your body inside and out. I jog once or twice a week, maybe this has been helping or is connected to me being more successful in my meditation.

Re: Meditation Techniques?

I have recently started meditation, I had tried to in the past with no luck to quiet my mind. This time around, it has been much easier. I don't know why but maybe it is from age. I have been using meditations out of the spiral dance by starhawk. When I meditate, I find it easier to relax laying dow...

Re: Why do we loose everything we care about?

I am sorry for your loss. Life can be difficult at time. I have always noticed things get worse before they get better. The bad in life, helps us appreciate the good things. We learn lessons about ourselves and life through enduring the bad. We grow and our strength is magnified by the terrible/hard...

Re: Please Help Me. I need some advice.

I want to address your father first. Your relationship with your father, sounds alot like mine with my mother. I don't know how old you are, but there came a point in life for me, and this was just a year ago when I realized, I will not be able to please her. I have since moved out full time and sto...
