Simple Spiritual House Cleansing

Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of posts we have had some unseasonably warm weather and I have been taking advantage of it. Before the next snow storm hits of course.

We have started doing some refreshing in parts of the house, little cracks here, little cracks there, knicks, bumps, dents and gaps in the trim work from the varying temps all that fun stuff. Easy stuff to do, but more tolerable when the sun is shining, birds are singing and you can crack open the windows a bit.

A ‘one in a million’ yellow cardinal is dazzling the Internet with its sunshiny feathers

Jeremy Black, an Alabama wedding and wildlife photographer, recently spent five hours in a friend’s back yard in the hope of capturing an image of what he called “the most captivating cardinal in Alabaster, Alabama.”

But that description sells this bird too short. The northern cardinal that Black ended up photographing was not the usual deep red of males but dazzlingly yellow. It could easily claim to be the most captivating bird in the nation — or at least on the Internet. Black’s photo, which was shared on the Facebook page of the Naturalist’s Notebook, promptly went viral.

“As soon as it landed, I was star-struck,” Black told National Geographic. “It kind of took my breath away a little bit.”

Magic in Ancient Greece: Necromancy, Curses, Love Spells, and Oracles

The magical traditions of ancient Greece encompassed spells, curse tablets, drugs, potions, poisons, amulets, and talismans. For many cultures of the past, there was a very fine line between magic, superstition, religion, and science. The ancient magicians were seen as symbols of wisdom, keepers of secrets, and masters of the arts, mathematics and science, particularly chemistry. Because magicians were believed to be individuals with access to supernatural powers, they were both feared and respected.

Spells and incantations had been used by the Egyptians for thousands of years and the Greeks carried this tradition forward, as evidenced by surviving Greek papyri containing magic records that date back to the 4th and 3rd century BC.

Amulets and Talismans

Amulets in ancient Greece were believed to have provided protection or the attraction of positive outcomes to situations or desires. These were worn around the neck or wrist of a person, or placed in physical locations, such as a house, to provide the same intended results. Commonly, Greek amulets were divided into two broad categories: talismans (which were believed to bring good luck) and phylacteries (which were intended for protection).

The materials used for talismans included bones, wood, stones and sometimes semi-precious gemstones. They could also be written on small pieces of papyrus or a metal sheet. They could be carried in a pouch or small container, or in small bags containing mixed herbs. And to complete the process, one had to invoke a god or goddess (usually Hecate), or multiple gods, and recite magical words of power.

Interesting Video Explaining “What is Witchcraft?”

I found this little over 3 minute YouTube video explanation of what Witchcraft is very interesting. The woman explaining it puts it in a way that I would have. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

School Shooting in Florida 17 Dead and 15 Woundef

I ask farmhouses positive energy and prayers to the victims families and the other students and faculty members touched by the horrible tragedy. The following article comes from the Washington Post this morning.

He had been getting treatment at a mental health clinic, but he had stopped. He had been expelled from school for discipline problems. Many of his acquaintances had cut ties in part because of his unnerving Instagram posts and reports that he liked shooting animals. His father died a few years ago, and his mother, among the only people with whom he was close, died around Thanksgiving. He was living in a friend’s house. He was showing signs of depression.

And Nikolas Cruz, 19, had a fascination with guns. He owned an AR-15 assault-style rifle.

Though school officials, students and others who knew him were aware that something was off with Cruz, it is unclear if anyone had a full picture of what was building within him in recent months. Had everyone who knew of his struggles sat down in a room and compared notes about his recent past, perhaps an alarm would have sounded ahead of what emerged on Valentine’s Day, when Cruz allegedly walked into a suburban South Florida high school and carried out one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings.

“Weird” was the word students had used for Cruz since middle school. At first “it was nothing alarming,” said Dakota Mutchler, 17, who attended middle school with Cruz, adding that there was something “a little off about him.” But that was it — for a while.

As Cruz transitioned into high school, he “started progressively getting a little more weird,” Mutchler told The Washington Post. Cruz, he said, was selling knives out of a lunchbox, posting on Instagram about guns and killing animals, and eventually “going after one of my friends, threatening her.”

On Wednesday night, Mutchler recalled Cruz as an increasingly frightening figure, being suspended from school repeatedly, before he was expelled last year. “When someone is expelled,” Mutchler said, “you don’t really expect them to come back. But, of course, he came back.”

He came back to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with a vengeance, according to the Broward County sheriff, who identified Cruz as the gunman who marched through the school with an AR-15 assault-style rifle, killing 17 people and wounding at least 15 others. He has since been booked on 17 counts of premeditated murder in connection with the deaths.

A Thought for Today

Meditation is important not just for getting messages from your guides but to help you find your true self under all the layers we put on to be the way society makes as think we should talk, think, and act like.

Sit in a quite room with no distractions and just let your thoughts go whatever they want. You may want a pen and paper handy to jot down thoughts and/or feelings you want explore deeper. Soon just like an onion as you peal away the layers you will find new layers of yourself!

I am here to “listen” if something comes out that you want to talk about. We can even set up a time to meet in our chat room or have a live conversation using Skype.

Blessed be dear ones.
