  1. Tonight I will be raising a glass to freedom of expression. To shamelessly name and celebrate what we hold dear and what we share by way of creativity, ritual, story and song. May all on here feel free in your paganism! 😁🌿

  2. To continue in the same vein: LAKOTA CODE OF ETHICS 1. Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak. 2. Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy - and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance. 3. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you. 4. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food,

  3. “Go out in the woods, go out. If you don't go out in the woods nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype I've seen this somewhere else recently - maybe on this very page - apologies if so! I very much agree with it.

  5. I’ve found this to be true. I had jellyfish around me a lot in my early 20’s because I had weak boundaries and needed the extra support!

  6. I believe that animals pop up in my life when their guidance is needed, but that whales and rabbits resonate heavily with me in the long term. I resonate with rabbits because I have long term trauma, and they mirror what I often feel- the fight or flight responses, being watched, feeling nervous like a prey animal, etc. I’ve come to expect any rabbits in my dreams to represent me. I actually also own two house rabbits, and it’s quite healing maintaining a positive relationship with them.

  7. "You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered . . . Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader." Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, "This could be a good time!" "There

  9. In reply to this topic. I honestly do not believe there are any specific books to read to become a pagan, also i do not believe one becomes one. I believe that with spirituality, life paths , anything is based on internalisation. Its the same with singing or writing, in order to sing one has to internalise the song. In order to understand one has to internalise the understanding. Feed it from the root, the wick that lights the flame. I think there is a path for all and each person has their own way. Though I do believe nature plays a big role in paganism and magic. One can learn things fr

  10. Primarily in the absence of doctrine. I can think along whatever bye-ways I see fit. This is important because I know what it is to be imprisoned by the doctrinaire wielding their doctrines. No longer will I be told what to believe.

  11. He says "become a pagan" and the title of the incorporates the phrase "the true pagan". I think "become a real pagan" was me paraphrasing 😁

  12. "Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back." -Proverb "HUMAN BEINGS MAKE LIFE SO INTERESTING? DO YOU KNOW, THAT IN A UNIVERSE FULL OF WONDERS, THEY HAVE MANAGED TO INVENT BOREDOM." -Terry Pratchett "Hogfather" My curiosity takes me on the wildest tangents. A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through a science abstract site reading through the science news as it was, and I got interested in an article about birds. My reading made me remember there was a bird I wanted to look up, which reminded me of the work of one of my mentors in archaeology who studied the Bay Area's Native

  13. I think that a spirit animal kind of adopts you. Sometimes they stick around, and become almost an alter ego. But sometimes they can make themselves known for a short while, because we need to learn something and they have agreed to teach us. A shamanistic view of this would be that you are using the spirit animal magic, to bolster some quality that you lack but they have in abundance, for example. Many of the old folklore stories from all over the world have surprisingly similar themes and attributes given to spiders, say, or foxes. Ancient stories and poetry have many layers of meaning,
