The Inspiration for “Elemental Magic – Earth”

This is about my recent stream of consciousness piece, “Elemental Magic – Earth

I’ve been studying Earth’s associations in life for a long while. Many sources had similar answers so eventually I decided to describe what Earth represented in my own way. I think what I loved most about writing this was being focused on life and death; those two things are truly tangible, inevitable truths all of us witness and will experience. She is our first and last teacher.

Elemental Magic – Earth – New Article

Earth is home. Home is where reality takes shape, where we start planting our roots. We start out as saplings looking up to the full-grown trees who are familiar with Earth and her nurturing ways. They seem proud of how far they’ve come. They seem invincible, so we believe them when they tell us that we will grow higher than they have, that we’re destined to be even closer to the sun.

Then we learn about how stressful growth is. Our sapling form starts protruding from the soil; our roots are deeper, but also farther away. We go through these strange phases, learning what to do with our new branches, leaves, petals, fruit, whatever you may see yourself blossoming. It’s a strange time, and it gets stranger when you see the other saplings growing differently. It leaves you curious, maybe terrified, but you’ll inevitably compare and contrast and wonder about reality’s most common questions: What is the right way to grow? What is the wrong way to grow?

Getting Started With Tarot – New Article

I wrote an article for those interested in reading tarot, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Divination through reading the cards, also known as cartomancy, attracts those who love cryptic symbolism. Don’t think “cryptic” to mean “incredibly difficult to understand” in this case. Tarot cards are metaphorical in nature, but are usually simplistic and direct in design. Divination itself, or communing with the divine (or spirit work, and communication, if you prefer), can be ambiguous when starting out, but I think tarot is a great introduction to identifying personal and universal truths. Tarot is a great psychological tool for introspection. Whatever your reason is for picking up tarot, I hope this introduction will give you a general idea of what to expect while learning to read the cards, and provide suitable references to help you explore tarot further.

the truth as you see it is what’s going to define the impact of tarot reading for you. What you should expect from reading tarot is gaining a revelation of your own perception of reality, whether you feel connected to divination or not.

New Article – Third Eye Chakra Crystals and Stones

If you already know what the third eye chakra is and you need a concise article that simply lists the crystals and their properties that will help balance your third eye, this the article for you. My source of reference is The Encyclopedia of Crystals by Judy Hall (2013).

Disclaimer: Though I advocate for crystal healing, I advocate for the advancements in medical science and psychiatric help. Do what you can to heal yourself, but know that these crystals are not a replacement for medicine or psychiatric advice.

The Dreams of Gaia Tarot – Product Review

To seek, to feel, to grow, and to heal—this is the foundational philosophy of Ravynne Phelan’s vibrant, surreal tarot deck, titled The Dreams of Gaia Tarot (2017). The simplistic purpose interwoven with the art is present with every tarot spread. There are enticing colors, carefully placed symbols, and a strong connection with the natural and supernatural realms. I purchased the deck around the time it was released. It was the second tarot deck in possession, but the first deck I attempted spells with because this deck truly encouraged a genuine exploration of many facets of the self. Anyone into tarot magick will find this deck is easy to work with and easy to handle, but it will also target your inner truth relentlessly. This tarot deck is for those who are ready to heal from past trauma, face the strengths and weaknesses of their personal reality, and address the true level of their emotional, mental, and spiritual maturity.

Tell Me About Your Lucid Dreams

I shared my recent lucid dream on Instagram. It was quite fun. I don’t know how I scheduled a lunch date in a dream lol, but I found that interesting. There are quite a few theories about what dreams actually are. Are you going to another world or exploring another timeline? Is it just your imagination or subconscious trying to process old and new information? I wrote about the lucid dreams and how their instances overlap with sleep paralysis and astral projection.

If you’ve had any strange dreams, tell me about them. Also, tell me what you think the purpose of having dreams really is. Your feedback may help me with future writing.

Springtime and Rune Magick: The Runic Book of Days

I’m in a position where I must bet on myself or bet on a system that may or may not take care of me. I know for a fact that if the system doesn’t have art or doesn’t let me create art, I’ll die. I’ve idealized death too many times to go there again. That was another risk. Another circumstance. Another chaotic instance of thrill and torment, but at least in art that torment tears me to pieces that I can reassemble and make into a new creation. Art provides rebirth beyond death or circumstance or consequence.

This is from my recent blog post where I was contemplating a certain transition I’m going through. As a pagan, I did my best to tap into some inner wisdom, but the panic set in faster. A whole winter of contemplation and meditation, but I still go into panic mode over, what I feel are, the most mundane things. Now spring is here and one source that has guided me through the figurative and literal seasons of change is the Runic Book of Days by S. Kelley Harrell, a wonderful guide to rune magick and how to apply its wisdom daily.
