    An illustrated ancient herbal remedies book has been made available online for everyone. Thought some of you would be interested 😀 https://mymodernmet.com/medieval-herbal-remedies-guide-online/?fbclid=IwAR0gCEQGzMkhj8OfLNiquIlu0HUxl6L7AKOs--7muLub_j-zl3GFVxrZh0M

    Well, the others have said it all really. You're probably working too hard at it. To start with, what do you think that you would feel if you did "feel your god?" How would you know when you've got what you are looking for? OK, so if you are St.Paul then the start point is pretty obvious but then he was about as manic as you can get so major swings were to be expected. For most of us the realisation of deity [if it ever comes at all] is a slow gentle realisation. I wouldn't start with research, I would just accept the one tenet that you have stated with some certainty: The next step is to live with that thought for a while and see what form, if any, that consciousness takes. Don't worry if it takes time, just enjoy the thinking. I would agree with Freydis about your deity finding you but please be careful here. If you think that a god or two are knocking on your door keep them on your doorstep a while before inviting them in. Check your own mood and feelings at that time. and There are plenty of very spiritual atheists within Paganism and outside of it. and If you find that Chistianity is what calls, don't worry but please, if you return take one thing from Paganism. The devil, hell and guilt are nothing to do with spirituality, they are control mechanisms. Enjoy your belief without fear. Many of us Pagans have had stand up rows with our deities!!!! Edited to add: Do not confuse spirituality with religion. The Christianity that I was involved in had little to do with spirituality, it was all religion, tenet and creed.

    We shall celebrate Beltane on Monday. The hawthorn tree is perfect, in full blossom but not snowing yet. Whether you celebrate or not I hope you all enjoy the ministrations of Dr. Green. Of course nettles are green as is the 12 inch grass that I shall mow before we celebrate but then while this is a very beautiful time, it isn't "my time". I believe that in the northern tradition April is Waedmonath but they don't half thrive in May. [Any Viking in the VAlley may correct my understanding and spelling.]

    It is such a shame. For years I've had plans to help revive the Maypole's and get some people out dancing with them. Always so bloody busy and also I'm sometimes a bit useless about organising myself to do stuff. And now I really am too busy with the baby.. maybe next year.

    One of my daughters has just started out on my Anne McCaffery collection. Most of her science fantasy books involve some kind of symbiosis, even the ones that have nothing to do with the Dragon series. The first one is "Dragonflight."

    Not belated at all. That is the joy of the fire festivals; they are under the control of the seasons. They mark the turning of THIS year as opposed to years in general. Our hawthorn wasn't in full blossom until last week and still isn't snowing petals. Plenty of time for Beltane celebration. Hip hooray, here comes the May. Out-door loving starts today.

    Happy Beltane everyone. Ive posted it before but here's my maypole dance for folks to enjoy being as it's seasonal... https://m.youtube.com/?hl=en-GB&gl=GB the Hawthorn is out here's too and looking stunning. oh and you guys need to embrace the weeds - ha ha - I don't understand why people don't like Dandylions ; pretty flowers, beautiful seed heads, they keep flowering for months, easy (very easy) to grow and they are great for the bees too.

    ....... which is exactly why I have used the term "awareness" throughout. One of the joys of early parenthood is to watch a little being who is the entirety of its awareness, slowly separate itself from "other than self". The cry of a newborn is in my view a statement that the universe is out of whack, not [at first] a demand that some "other" puts it right. Awareness of "other" soon sets up associations and a universe that had previously existed as adjectives [warm, replete etc.] begins to acquire nouns and then verbs as that universe [and self] is realised. Prior to this the baby existed in my universe; I'm not certain about exactly when its own formed. Of COURSE this process begins in the womb, perhaps soon after the big bang [Sorry! 😞]

    Wicca and Witchcraft conjure up all sorts of different images in the minds of today's magickal community. There are many who think Wicca is a belief system full of rules and limitations, dictating the beliefs, deities, and magickal practices of its practitioners. However, today's Wicca is a vibrant tradition that can be celebrated in a variety of ways and practiced every day. Jason Mankey, author of Transformative Witchcraft, offers five easy ways we can connect with our spirituality and enhance our craft daily. View the full article
