    Fire Meditation

    The Sacred Element of Fire  By Gaia Woolf-Nightingall Fire is a truly enigmatic element. It expresses itself in the starlight that filters into our eyes, illuminating the world around us. The vibrant colours of passionate expression, envelop the body of the flame. Red, orange and gold move in a pulsating dance. Bright yellow flickers on its surface and radiates through its heart, where a blue luminous eye holds the spirit of the eternal fire. The fire in the sky burns brightly displaying to us the brilliance of the day. Heating the earth beneath our feet and the air surrounding our bodies. The summer sun gives freely of its energy, catalysing the…

    Light of my Soul

    I AM THE LIGHT OF MY SOUL By Susan Morgaine In an uncertain world, one of the most important things we can do, as women, is to develop a soothing self-care practice. We were created by the Goddess, in Her image, and we carry a spark of Her radiant love for us. It is unfortunate, then, that the world does not see us as Goddess, nor do many even see Her, and so women, in our current society, are seen as “less than” we really and truly are. We must remember that, as Her daughters, we carry Her in our heart and, in so doing, project Her presence out into…

    Recipe for Sacred Space Clearing and Blessing

    by Edaine Is your space just not feeling right? Do you have a home for sale that is not selling? Is your home, office, or shop feeling dark, heavy, or not welcoming? Most likely, you need a space clearing and blessing. In the same way that we need to keep our bodies clean with good hygiene, our homes and offices need cleaning and clearing too. This is called “Psychic Hygiene”. When there is negative activity in a space where people have been arguing, or, someone passes away and there is a residue of sadness, or, there are spirits (ghosts) lingering in your space, it will create a feeling or condition…

    Conversation with Cerridwen

    by Margo Wolfe   Cool autumn eve.  The air chills your face.  You bring the corner of your cloak up to your eyes and shield yourself until the wind passes.  When you remove your arm, she is there.   Cerridwen, Crone, Shapeshifter— a vision of our future self. She frightens you even when she smiles, but her withered hand takes yours with such a powerful grip that you can only follow where she leads.   She sits you down on a hollowed log—gnarled with knots and holes.  Not exactly a comfortable chair.   She stands before you, stirring the contents of a cauldron, deliberately, slowly, like all her movements.  …
