Oneiromancy

  “Dreams are imperfections of sleep; even so is consciousness the imperfection of waking. Dreams are impurities in the circulation of the blood; even so it’s consciousness a disorder of life. Dreams are without proportion, without good sense, without truth; so also is consciousness. Awake from dream, the truth is known: awake from waking. The truth is: The Unknown”― Aleister Crowley, The …

“Belladonna and Blades”

A grave grew in the lonely part of a valley, where two hills met. Planted with chips of rose quartz, a thin lead tablet left behind the last bit of my heart, to release a love into all things wild and dusty. It was in this piece I let go a friendship. I suffocated it in the red dirt of …

PBP: “Z” is for Zilch

After a two-week hiatus of violent vomiting episodes from various flus, Solstice gatherings and Christmas dreading, the Yuletide is now beginning to ebb and we get down to brass tact. The year of Pagan Blog Project is ending for 2013; I am both proud and bored with it. However, since I did get a late start, and only to be …

PBP: “V” is for Vassago, the Völva and Vulnerability

Vassago I missed out on an important part my occult education: summoning and conjuration. How is this possible? Well for starters, I never worked with lesser entities (i.e. demons)… always stuck with good ol’ evocation and invocation which naively seemed safer. Hell, it has only been in the past 5 years I began including the Beloved Dead in mine Arte. …

PBP: “R” is for Ravens and Vultures and Hawks, Oh My!

Birds are cool, especially the ones who stay behind in the winter. I have a natural knack for Augury: “the art of divination by observing the behaviour of birds” (Bygone Beliefs on Sacred-Texts). And it’s not just one type of bird for me, but pretty much any feathered creature that coasts through the air. They have circled above my head …

PBP: “I” is for Indica

I am a stoner. It is a taboo, illegal in some places, shunned by the norm of society, regulated, and probably makes it difficult for me to get a good job… all the things society and my parents wanted me to believe. I smoke legally for medical reasons. This isn’t like those young guys who have trouble sleeping and stock …

Inflaming Myself in Prayer

I read a wonderful quote that (I believe) is Thelemic in origin: “Invoke often. Inflame thyself in prayer”. It matters not who originally said/wrote it, but I like the concept and have been applying this to my spiritual discipline. And really it can be applied to ANY religious belief system; this is the genius of the statement. It captures the …

A Vision and Lesson…

The following is a vision I had in meditation, when I met my first psychopompic friend, in 2007. I share it as a reminder of how the Otherworld can make connections, all we need to do is reach out for it. As I walked toward the hill, a warm breeze sent shivers all over my body; a white gown was …
