Finding Joy in Times of Fear

We are living in an unprecedented time of fear. I struggled with writing a post about the current fear climate surrounding COVID-19 and the world being under quarantine. It isn’t like there’s not a plethora of talk about it on every other blog and website. So, at first, I planned specifically not to write aboutContinue reading “Finding Joy in Times of Fear”

The Racism and Hatred of Jews Behind the K in Magic(k)

Back in 2018, I wrote a blog post called Magical Mindset in which I spoke briefly about why I don’t use the letter “k” that so many witches do in regards to magic. I said that it doesn’t matter because magic is a mindset and that these days we all know what is meant whenContinue reading “The Racism and Hatred of Jews Behind the K in Magic(k)”

The Truth About Grief

There is a common misconception about grief- time heals all wounds. This is not true at all. Time does not heal grief. What time does is lessen the pain. Time makes grief less intense or less frequent, but it doesn’t heal. If time healed all wounds, then after the passage of a certain amount ofContinue reading “The Truth About Grief”

Solstice Lights

My favorite part of the winter holiday season is the importance placed on lights. It doesn’t matter what holiday it is, or what the religious connections are, each celebration this time of year revolves around light and, ultimately, the winter solstice.  The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year. For several days theContinue reading “Solstice Lights”

Thanksgiving 2019 is my 40th Thanksgiving, so it’s only appropriate that I share forty things I am thankful for. Some of these are theContinue reading “40 Things I’m Thankful for Right Now”

The Search for World Peace

Once there was a teacher who had two students. The teacher instructed his students to go home and draw a picture of peace. The next day both students came back with their pictures. The first student had drawn a pastoral mountain scene. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the stream was meanderingContinue reading “The Search for World Peace”

Why We Need Credentials

Within the holistic community there are no governing oversight bodies that provide licensure for practitioners. This can be good and bad. The good thing with this is that there are very few barriers to entry. If you are interested in becoming a holistic practitioner, it is very easy to do so. The bad news is,Continue reading “Why We Need Credentials”

My Spiritual Journey

I was born into a Christian family. I was raised as what I term “Bapticostal”. My parents divorced when I was four and I spent one weekend with my father in the Church of God, and the other weekend with my mom’s family in the Baptist church. If you know anything at all about differentContinue reading “My Spiritual Journey”

Is America Ready for A Female President?

I know it’s kind of early to be making predictions about the 2020 presidential election, but I thought I would go ahead and share my thoughts on the topic of a woman president.    First off, I am sorely vexed in 2019 to have to ask if we are ready for a female president. ItContinue reading “Is America Ready for A Female President?”
