Practical Magic With Saoirse: A Safe Place for Our LGBTQIA+ Kids

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,
A school is being sued. A child could not come out trans to their parents, but they felt safe coming out at school. When the parents found this out at, this lead to the child attempting suicide, so the parents are suing the school accusing the school of forcing their child to identify as trans. The minute I found out about this I got on the telephone and called the school. I thanked them for being a safe place for kids. They really appreciated hearing from somebody that supported that. I gave them my contact information as a Priestess and I told them to let me know if they needed anything at all. I just might hear back from them. Know why? Allies need help in making a safe place for our kids. Continue reading Practical Magic With Saoirse: A Safe Place for Our LGBTQIA+ Kids

The Essynian Mysteries: Part Three

Conveyed by Brahn th Blessed

In part two of this deposition of the Essynian Mysteries I tried, probably too hard, to describe the fundamental relationship of two aspects of reality.  Primordial Existence is called Spirit because it appears to be nothing and yet it holds the vast and boundless potential of everything, an unimaginably immense and relentless potential which is the driving force of the multiverse.  It requires the awakened powers of Consciousness, which I call Maya, to transform this reservoir of potential into action and change.  Spirit is what Maya IS, and Maya is what Spirit DOES.  Spirit is Being, and Maya is Becoming.  Lao Tzu spoke of Spirit as “the Eternal Tao” (the everlasting existence), whereas he called Maya (consciousness) “the Tao that can be told; the Mother of the Ten Thousand Things.”  These are the two existences, Spirit and Maya.  The former is the existence of potential being, and the latter is the existence of particular beings.

Witch At The Crossroads: Managing Psychic Attack

By Katrina Rasbold

In last week’s Witch At The Crossroads blog, we talked about symptoms of psychic attack and these may come from intentional malice or inadvertent ill will (like pouting and wallowing in anger). In this post, we discuss how to effectively manage psychic attack once it occurs or we suspect it has occurred. Continue reading Witch At The Crossroads: Managing Psychic Attack

Witch At The Crossroads: Identifying Psychic Attack

By Katrina Rasbold

In researching for this article, I looked back over a blog post I wrote on Patheos Pagan in 2015 and wow, have my views ever changed! One of the great benefits to blogging and journaling is the opportunity to review and reconisder our position from years before and notice how much we learned in the interim. Back then, I had a more naive perspective on psychic attack and since that time, I have performed literally thousands of cleansings on people suffering from the effects of untreated psychic attacks, plus wrote a book on the subject. Where at that time, I considered true psychic attack to be uncommon, I now know it happens all the time. People are so much more comfortable slinging baneful energy around than I ever imagined back then. Continue reading Witch At The Crossroads: Identifying Psychic Attack

Part Two

Click to read Part One

By this time, you have either done the first exercise or not.  If you haven’t, I will not be bothered with you.  If you want to learn you must study.  I have little enough time left in this life to concern myself with anyone who is absent curiosity.  If you did the exercise from Part One, you discovered that  there is an amazing hidden symmetry underlying the number system, a symmetry that permeates the numbers to infinity.

Practical Magic With Saoirse: The Power of Saying “Yes”

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

So, I have written about the power of saying “no” and what a wonderful magic word it is. However, there is another magic word that is just as potent and will give you just as good of results if not better ones. You might think the word is “please” or even “pretty please” because sometimes saying that will get you what you want. You might think the word is “later”,because that gives you a pause and reminds people to come back and try again. You might also think the magic word is “love” because without it most things in life wouldn’t be possible. Those are all very powerful magical words, but I have a different magic word that I bet you don’t say to yourself very often. Continue reading Practical Magic With Saoirse: The Power of Saying “Yes”

Witch At The Crossroads: Breath of the Dragon

By Katrina Rasbold

An up and coming, fast-track, newbie Pagan I know recently referred to feng shui as “fluffy bunny magic.” I stared in amazement because, gentle reader, if taking the energy movement in your home seriously is fluffy bunny magic, then it is the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog. Little is more vital to your day-to-day magic than the energy flow you cultivate in your own spiritual sanctuary. Continue reading Witch At The Crossroads: Breath of the Dragon

Secrets of the Essynian Traditions: Me Knee Allah Gee

by Brahn th’ Blessed

I thought this title might be more easily remembered.  Its actually an article about the power and arcane mysteries of… not yet… let it ripen… numbers.  Yes, numbers.  Another article about numerology.  Yeah, me too.  There are only ten Arabic Numerals—they are 0.1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.  That’s it.  Astrology only has twelve zodiac signs, but it’s got twelve houses too, and its got aspects:  conjunctions, quincunxes (quincunxes alone are reason enough to go astral over astrology!), sextiles and semi-sextiles, trines, squares, and oppositions.  And everyone knows their Sun Sign, their Moon Sign, and their Rising Sign!  You go, Astrology!

The Essynian Mysteries – Chapter 2

Conveyed by Brahn th Blessed

Part Two.  Primordial Existence is the initial condition of reality, the primal ground existing in a time before times and a place beyond places.  It has neither substance nor form, no identity and no qualities by which it may be described except to say that it is possessed of a reservoir of boundless potential; after all, everything that ever has existed or ever will have existed in this universe or any other universe that ever may exist, Everything!, must arise from that source that is hidden beyond the  pitiful measures of space anid time.  It must be understood as a fundamental principle of reality, vast in its potential but absent of all appearance.  Mystics describe it properly and necessarily as An Absolute One Without Other (Unum Sine Altera) and speak of its ineffability.  In speaking of the two existences, Lao Tzu said “The Tao that can be told is not the Eternal Tao; that is the Mother of the Ten Thousand Things.  The Eternal Tao cannot be told.”  It cannot be told because it has no discernible qualities; it is not big or small, neither round nor square, it has neither insides nor outsides, it is neither this nor that.  Although there is nothing that it is not, it is without the appearance of anything.  It requires such mystical language of anyone who would speak of it.
