Happy Earth Day!!

Blessings of Mother Gaia this beautiful spring day!! I know that I haven't been posting as often as I was. I have been doing a ton of journeying with my animal totem and have been working on a task that the Great Mother has assigned to me. She has been keeping me busy learning new things to aid me on my journey.

I am also going to be going on a physical journey to a friend's homestead next month to experience 2 types of journeying:
Tarbh Feis (pronounced like "tarv fesh") and a Shamanic method using rhythm. I normally don't use any outside "noise" such as drums, music, etc. when I journey, so this will be an interesting experience.

Also, I want to share this beautiful piece of music I found as I was perusing YouTube. I hope you enjoy it, too. It's called, "Salva Nos" by the Medieval Babes.

My Journey Continues

Merry Meet, all. Just a blog about what I've been up to since starting my new job. I have a new thing I'm very interested in and it's a journey that I've been taking. I blogged about it in my Deities page about 2 wks ago. I've been really keen on meeting with my Animal Totem and I have met with him in the Lowerworld. In case you haven't read about Asra, you can here.

I'm also reading a good book that I recently picked up called, "Exploring Spellcraft" by Gerina Dunwich. It's a very informative book without being too wordy. She explains things for both Wiccans & non-Wiccans. I'm about halfway through it, so I can't give an informative opinion on it yet, but what I've read, I've liked. I found it on a sale table at Little Mysteries for $8. I also bought another book, "Devoted to You" by Judy Harrow. I haven't read it yet, but it is about honouring Deity in the 4 Fire Festivals (Samhain, Imbolc, Beltaine, Lughnasadh)

Tomorrow will be my 1st meeting with the newly formed Halifax Black Hat Society. We're having an informal meeting at Perk's on the waterfront, just a little coffee-talk. I'm basing this group on it being purely social. I'm hoping to set a time where we can get together at my place for a Mystical Movie Night at my house. I'm looking at close to Beltaine, so we can watch "The Wicker Man" with Christopher Lee. I also have lots of ideas for crafty things we can do, swaps, book club, etc. I'm a little disappointed in some of the Pagan groups here in my city that I belong to. If you don't show up to any meetings, for any reason, the admin get all pissy and remove you from the Facebook group. I find one group a bit clique-y. The admin are a group of friends who really don't want input from the group, even though they say they do. When you suggest something, they shoot it down. With the HBHS, I don't want that, I want to hear everyone's ideas and make the time to get them done. No topic or idea is off limits.

Brightest Blessings to you all,
