Can You Never Find Good Online Pagan Groups?

I have over 100 people who follow both my blog and Facebook page, but other than blog comments I rarely get to interact with all of you unless you're on my friends list.

So I've decided to create a Facebook group. It is closed so when you comment only members who are in the group will see what you've shared with us.

I'd like to invite all Pagans, or those who want to know more about Paganism, to join.

Does Your Home Have Spirits?

Today I've made a video as a response to Wisteria Witch's question about household spirits. Watch the video and tell me, does your home have spirits?

Here is a picture of the 200 year old house I was talking about in the video. Of course it looked different when we lived there. The overgrowth looks very similar to when we first rented the house though. I still remember pulling vines and mowing that lawn when the stalks of weeds looked more like mini trees!

Btw, I think I'm getting the hang of this vlog thing! I'm much less nervous in front of the camera. :)

The "Already Seen" Moments

 What if deja vu meant you lost a life and you are starting back off at your last checkpoint. -unknown

Deja Vu is a French word meaning "already seen". Since I was a little girl I've had moments where I knew I've lived through the same things I was doing. Mostly it was a combination of what someone said or a specific movement.

One of the biggest moments of deja Vu is when I knew I was just about to get my ass chewed out by my boss. I knew I had been there before, had heard the same tirade and reacted the exact same way I reacted to the situation. I had made a mistake when working, and my boss wasn't that happy with me.

Mostly though, it's small things. Like the combination of what someone says followed by someone else entering the room. All those things separately may have happened in the past. But none of it was done together until that point. Yet I know I've been in that situation before.

There are many theories on what deja Vu is. *Some scientists believe it's a portent of a mild epileptic seizure. However that doesn't explain why those who are healthy have experienced deja vu. Others believe it is possibly a past life memory. I believe neither of those answers are correct.

What I believe is that we've divined those moments through our dreams. My biggest question, and one I haven't a good answer for, is why would we dream of non-consequential moments? Is it a sign that we are on the right path? I have no idea. Often I have a feeling that the moment is important, yet it seemingly isn't. Such as last night. I had a moment of deja vu when I sat down with food in my hand and turned on the TV to see a specific television show on. None of what I experienced was important, yet it was important enough for me to have already seen it.

Do you have "already seen" moments? What do you believe deja vu is?

PBP: My Midsummer

Litha Comments & Graphics

Pagan Blog Prompts: Litha

Litha is the summer solstice and happens roughly around June 21-23rd every year. I know this prompt is late (I am posting on behalf of Shauna who is on hiatus), but what did you all do to celebrate Litha yesterday? Do you have any specific traditions? Did you celebrate solitary, with a coven, with friends, with your family?
Enjoy blogging this week about midsummer and what it means to you!

I wanted to wait until nightfall to take a picture of the full super moon. However nature has worked against me. It is cloudy outside and storming a bit. So I unfortunately can't give you a good picture of the moon. 
I actually celebrated Litha on the 21st, which in hindsight was a good thing because part of my ritual was completed outside. 
So what does Midsummer mean to me? Well quite simply, we are in the middle or high point of the year. This is a time of great energy that can be utilized for just about any type of ritual you want to perform.  My own ritual involved deep meditation. I needed to reflect on my life thus far and ask myself some pretty important questions. I wish I had better answers. But I was reminded that kids only ask questions over and over and expect a different answer. Patience is a virtue that I have not gained yet. 
The second part of my ritual was to write a letter to God and Goddess. This is getting back to my roots. As a young girl I remember writing many letters. Back then I wasn't clear on who I was writing to, but I felt compelled to put my words to paper. Writing made me feel like I was conversing with a close friend. The letter was either kept tucked away in a private spot or I destroyed it by fire or burying it. Tonight I chose to burn it, which was the outdoor part of my ritual. 
My ritual is simplistic, but effective. Which pretty much sums up my ritual style. 
Have a wonderful Litha everyone!

Have A Great Summer Solstice

Have a great summer everyone. Sorry I've been a bit silent lately. I've not been in a good mood. Some things have happened in my life. Mostly life took a big shit on us. I can't say I didn't have a hand to play in it though. We are dealing with the consequences. For now though, I want to focus on celebrating the summer solstice. 

I'm trying to grow herbs again. I know, I keep killing plants. I have no idea why. I keep reading websites and getting advice from those green thumb people, but it never seems to help. Hopefully these little herbs will sprout and do well. 

I think my own summer ritual will be private tonight. Over the past few weeks I've felt the strong need for solitude and peace. Its a time I've drawn within myself. It's just my way to heal a bit. 

Anyway, enough about doom and gloom. Go out and enjoy the summer! 

Blessed Be y'all.

What I've Been Doing

So I've been pretty silent this week. Once in awhile I find that the world is too bright and too loud so I seek the darkness and solitude. When I was younger my mother was concerned that this habit was a form of depression. In reality it's just seeking distance from the over-stimulation the outside world forces upon me day after day.

So I've stayed in my little cocoon for now. Usually after these bouts of solitude I come out feeling refreshed, invigorated, and ready for new creative adventures.

So what do I do while in my solitude? Various things. This time, I've been playing a game. I use to play World of Warcraft many years ago. I played for about two years and enjoyed it a lot.
WOW, Level 80 DK. Character Name: Sassanach

I left WOW and the gaming community for a long time for a few reasons. Number one, is that I was bored. I use to play with my husband, but he quit the game. I played for some time without him, but it wasn't the same.

Then our finances changed and I couldn't justify spending the fee to play a game I was bored and not playing much.

I remember when I was younger and we had horses, while I was mounted on that horse the thing I loved the most is the solitude. It was just me and the horse. We had sort of a communication without speaking. I no longer have horses, or even access to ones I can pet. So I've been seeking a game that gave the full horse experience. There are not many choices out there that I liked. So when I saw the game Star Stable advertised, I checked it out. While it can definitely use some improvements, it's given me that solitude and peace I was seeking. I'm sure I probably won't play it for very long. I don't see me sticking with it two years like I did with WOW. But for now, it makes me happy.

Star Stable. Level 5. Character Name: Anja Stargren. Horse Name: WinterSong
Do you ever seek the peace of solitude? What do you do to pass the time?
