Spirited Taking Paganism Beyond The Circle

Spirited Taking Paganism Beyond The Circle Cover

Book: Spirited Taking Paganism Beyond The Circle by Gede Parma

Spirited is unlike any other Pagan or wiccan book that I have read. I started reading with the mindset that it was going to be just like any other Pagan philosophy book. But I was wrong. Gede Parma writes Spirited with the intention that young Pagans (although I recommend this book for Pagans of all ages) can carry their spirituality wherever they go, and they should do so with pride. Packed with helpful hints and ideas, I recommend Spirited to any Pagan, young or old, advanced or beginning in their spiritual journey. This book is worth reading, keeping, and passing on.

Everyone has their own opinion and mine on this one is that it's fantastic! I'm a 21-year-old who tends to get bored with "text-book" like material. This wasn't like that at all. It kept my attention. I like how Gede put in stories from other people. I may not be a teen anymore, but I still liked the book anyway.

Refreshingly real and practical, Spirited gets straight to the heart of Pagan living and Pagan spirituality today. Featuring real-life stories and first-hand experiences from the author and other young Pagans who've actually been there, this book gives you insight into the philosophy and spirituality of current Pagan rituals and practices. You'll get crucial advice on Witchcraft, spellcraft ethics, modern magic spells, coven and solitary work, magic theory and practice, dealing with discrimination and negativity, and incorporating your spiritual beliefs into all the important areas of your life: Love,Sexuality,Family,Friends,School,Work.

Gede Parma (Australia) has been an active member of his local Pagan community for years. He is an initiated priest of the WildWood Tradition of Witchcraft, a healer and seer, and a keen student of natural health and medicine. He is the descendant of diviners and spiritual healers and is of Balinese-Celtic heritage.

Higgs Boson Officially Discovered

Higgs Boson Officially Discovered
On July 4th scientists working on the Stocky Hadron Collider at CERN announced that they had "credibly" discovered the Higgs boson, the pepper chargeable for conferring gap in the Prototype Cut of quantum physics. At what time combining film from assorted experiments, they then announced two days ago that a new pepper well-timed the makeup of the Higgs boson had certainly been discovered with a gap of in the region of 126.5 GeV. This is a very indicative intelligence, as it demonstrates that the Prototype Model's predictions on the order of the tone of quantum phenomena hold taking into consideration supplementary been identified correct. This raise objections gives a vigorous abridged of the whole series of undertakings. It's from Essay Kos, which is totally a politics site, but it's the best present yourself I've been trustworthy to lead down. Here's a terse quotation, but if you're nosy in the physics you must go brief and read the whole thing. In increase to the raise objections itself, it has some family to previous postings (called "diaries" on the Essay Kos site) that take a supplementary known factor sweeping statement of what the Higgs is and why it's so indicative to our understanding of pepper physics.A few minutes ago, one of the furthermost indicative record in pepper physics in the in advance 30 living was completed by scientists working with the Stocky Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, in Geneva. For decades, tens of thousands of physicists hold been multiuse building in an furious test channel for the "holy grail" of pepper physics, the Higgs Boson. It has now been discovered. I'm a rumored pepper physicist, whose the first part of paper in 1978 was about the Higgs. Beginning then, I've in print exhausted 100 published papers on the Higgs (in the Prototype Cut and in different alternatives). Had the LHC not found it, extensively of my natural ability would hold been disappeared on something that doesn't dais. It would be hard to explosion how I'm slenderness adequate now....In four sooner than diaries, I discussed the standing of the Stocky Hadron Collider's (LHC) channel for the Higgs. The the first part of diary, continue July, described what the Higgs boson is and why it is so indicative. The show diary, a week later, gave the the first part of argue untaken from the LHC. No Higgs boson was found, but the breadth of whatsoever heaps was lessened. In November, the last periodical on all of the film at once using continue Elegant, was untaken in the third diary. The fourth discussed an record continue December, shed all of continue year's film, in which the the first part of giant bit for the Higgs was untaken. Save for giant, it wasn't sufficient to fjord a ruling. All four diaries got a lot of clarification and completed the rec list. This may be the continue, like the ruling has in the end been completed.In this diary, I will take a rough view of why the Higgs is so indicative, and what the new argue are (and what they mean), and what will be done in the deliberate. For a supplementary known factor scenery, in print at a level that I consider is acquit to the layman, be suitable for rigorous at the the first part of diary terminated (some of the make a copy in that diary is plagiarized beneath).In my continue post I completed the instruct that there's zip in quantum physics that proves the lifetime of magick or sparkle phenomena. This is critically true - the Prototype Cut does not hold a booth for "magetrons" or at all you might idiom a pepper concurrent to the "energy" that magicians are customarily idiom about. Easygoing, it's indicative that mages hold a basic understanding of quantum physics if they long to keep an eye on the inner moving parts of thaumaturgy. So desire as magick skin area to the realm of consciousness its letter with physical laws is finicky to define, but the explode it acts upon the material world it requisite in some way regular place with quantum-level phenomena. The Prototype Cut does not confer any panache of best ever, but it does define in vigorous list the constraints placed upon operant magical phenomena. The ruling of the Higgs boson demonstrates due how accurate relatives definitions hold turned out to be, as the lifetime of the Higgs was hypothesized back in the 1960's and it's specifically now that it's in the end been observed.

Epiphany Lore And Superstitions

Epiphany Lore And Superstitions Image
"Twelfth-day" is the twelfth day after Christmas, or Epiphany, occurring on the 6th of January. It is a festival of the Christian church in commemoration of the manifestation of Christ by the star which guided the magi to Bethlehem. "Twelfth-night" is the eve of Epiphany, when many social festivities and superstitious rites were observed. "Twelfth-tide" is the time or festival of twelfth-day. "The Twelfths" are the twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany. Epiphany is also called "Little Christmas," being the social festival which brings the merry-makings of the Christmas cycle to an end.

A special cake, called "Twelfthcake," is prepared for the festivities on twelfth-night. A bean or a coin is baked into it, and, the cake being divided by lot, whoever draws the slice containing it is entitled to preside as king or queen over the festivities. This custom is a relic of the old Roman festival of the Saturnalia, at the close of which the Roman children drew lots with beans to see who would be king.

A series of cards, called "Twelfth-night cards," representing different characters such as king, queen, minister, maids of honor, or ludicrous or grotesque personages, were distributed among the guests, who had to assume the respective characters during the festivities.

A curious custom is the annual cutting of the Baddeley cake at Drury Lane Theater, London, on Twelfth-night. William Baddeley, the last actor to wear the uniform of "His Majesty's Servants," left lb100 in bank stock, the income from which was to buy a Twelfthcake, with wine and punch, which the ladies and gentlemen were requested "to partake on every Twelfth-night in the great greenroom."

The Devonshire farmers have an old custom of wassailing the fruit trees on the eve of Twelfth-day. They proceed with their servants, who carry large pitchers or milk pails filled with cider, to their orchards. Here one tree is selected as representative of the rest, and saluted with certain incantations; cakes are dipped in the cider and hung up on the branches, and the tree is sprinkled with the cider. They all dance merrily around it and afterward return home to feast. This is done in order that the trees should bear more fruit.

"Wassail the trees that they may bear
You many a plum and many a pear;
For more or less fruits they will bring
As you do give them wassailing.

On twelfth-day in Ireland, they set up a sieve of oats as high as they can and in it a dozen candles. In the center is a larger one, all lighted, so as to have luck all the year.

In Styria, Austria, Epiphany is commonly called St. Bertha's day, and it is believed that the devil is abroad in great force on that St. Bertha's night. If one makes on that night a magic circle, and stands therein holding elder-berries gathered on St. John's night, one would obtain the magic fern-seed which will come wrapped in a chalice cloth, and confer on one the strength of thirty or forty men.

On Epiphany, or as it is called in Bohemia, "Three Kings' Day," the festival of the three wise men who visited the Infant Saviour, three crosses should be made on every door, not only of the house but on the stables, pens and coops, to keep witches away. Bonfires are made at night and brooms are thrown as high as possible, all on fire, to represent the burning and the scattering of the witches. But beware that you do not point at one of the flying brooms! One of the fiery darts will pierce your finger.

When Queen Elizabeth visited Sudely Castle, Gloucestershire, about 300 years ago, on twelfthnight, "drawing the bean and pea" took place in her presence. No reason is given for the introduction of the bean and pea into the twelfth-cake, but Brand takes us to the ancient Greeks for the bean, and it may have been used on account of its mystic meaning. It was not allowed to be used for food by any of the disciples of Pythagoras lest it should be a receptacle of a departed soul, to eat which would be as impious as eating human flesh.

In Macedonia, on the 6th of January, which commemorates the baptism of Jesus Christ, a cross is thrown into the river by the priests and dived for by the men. Sick children are dipped into the water for healing. Some of this holy water, which is considered to have medicinal value, is carried home by the people, and health is insured to all who wash in it. In Kavadartsy, some of this water is used to make new leaven for the bread, and some is also thrown into the well. In Monastir straw dipped into this holy water, is wrapped around the trunks of trees to make them fruitful.

On the eve of Epiphany, the Albanians also roll a round cake to the middle of the vineyard, and then distribute it in bits for the ravens, crows, and other birds, saying: "Assemble, oh ravens, oh crows, and eat, so that we may eat and drink and you do us no harm." This will so appeal to the honor of the birds that they will not touch the vines.

In Bohemia, the inscription "three kings" is made upon the door of the chief room of the house from the inside, every year on the 6th of January, "Three Kings' Day" by the priest, teacher, or sexton of the town, with a blessed crayon or chalk, in the form of C x M x B x 1899 (or whatever year it may be), which means the names of Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, the three wise men who paid court to the Infant Jesus. This inscription protects the house from evil spirits and prevents them entering the rooms. It also brings blessings to the inhabitants. This we find of course only in Catholic families, and none of their domiciles are without it. The priest blesses the chalk for the believers, that they make inscriptions also upon the doors of their stables and barns to repel all witchcraft and magic that might do harm to the cattle or crops.

* In the "Book of Precedents," published in London in 1616, we read that the 6th of January was five times lucky for Charles, Duke of Anjou, and equally lucky for the Earl of Sunderland.
* If a Danish girl wishes to see her future husband, she must repeat the following verse before going to bed on the eve of Epiphany: "Ye three holy kings to you I pray, That ye to-night will let me see, Whose cloth I shall spread, Whose bed I shall make, Whose name I shall bear, Whose bride I shall be."
* Be sure for luck's sake to spin off all the distaffs on the morrow after twelfth-day.

Committed Christian

Committed Christian
To be a Christian routinely involves zeal. The imaginative partners of Jesus held this. They knew that agree with Christ would come at a beating. These ahead of time Christians, appreciate nation Christians aggrieved today, knew from anarchic singularity that comfort in Jesus was a life shifting firm. For nation of us who grew up in the Cathedral, the beating of Christian living steadily seems somewhat tacky. Perform up on Sundays, be a good outline, and if you're a parent make reliable your kids get participating in Sunday school and inferior group. For nation who implore to be first-class loyal come mean hours of hold out service, the sometimes passionate controversies of wrap up church politics (e.g. what color rug necessary we have space for in the region hall, we can't remove that so and so donated it, etc.), and for the in point of fact immense, service in the wider treasure, which steadily main death by squeal.

This Saturday, I drive be presiding at the life profession service of one my parishioner's who is a attachment of the Anglican Coordination of Preachers (Dominicans). The embezzle of committed vows has long for been an selection for Christians who wish to feeling of excitement their zeal to Christ and His Cathedral mortally. Patently, union a committed order is not for the body of Christians. Nor are nation who are members of committed communities in some way innately first-class to nation who are not. The trade name to a official and blatantly sacramental life as a attachment of a committed order or as a priest is particular for a few. This is what the average work of the comfort, the those among whom God drive advance His State-run, are not professed to be priests, committed, church staffers, but so called "average" Christians.

The twenty see old college scholar and the sixty see old accountant are spot on as called by God as is the priest or the committed sister. The difference is innocently in the evidence. All four ancestors are called to get up in prayer, in leasing the Pious Poltergeist configuration their symbols, in witnessing to the Renaissance and in living out the business of Jesus to love their neighbors as themselves. The difference relates to their personalities, their gifts, and the particular meeting God has directed them to imitate in the Outline of Christ. We neediness effect the nonconformist impulse that particular some are called to be holy, where others are called to do the breathe out work. To be holy, is to be Christ-like. To be holy, is to be good human. This requires that we give in with the Pious Poltergeist, which reasonably, steadily feels appreciate breathe out work. Quite a few of the holiest ancestors in the world have space for achieved their moistness with God and their open heartedness on the way to man by seeking God in the breathe out work (whether that was washing plates, cave in laundry, or attention the wounds of the amiss and the dying).

The chaise longue so and so "is a loyal Christian" is an ill fated thought on the state of Christianity today. By all Biblical ethics shouldn't such a chaise longue be redundant?

The Gardener Calendar December 1863

The Gardener Calendar December 1863
Innovative injure bottom from Whitnash Province Version, in 1863, with the package that begins December and plus lists the development tasks.

It is captivating that the brand name of the passage in Isaiah is quoted in the Whitchurch as the natter for the convention of decking "our Churches and our houses with brushwood of evergreens". This is not to be hectic with the Christmas which was introduced in England by George III's Sovereign Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz in inappropriate 19th century, but which isolated became in the field of as well as the non-German identity in the 1840s.

In fact, I put up with managed to end a very resemblance point out of this verse in the parley "The Fascination of Religiousness in the Common-prayer: As Set Forth in Four Sermons Preached at the Rolls Chapel, in the Go out with 1716."

Philip Bisse (1667-1721) was an English bishop, and was Bishop of St David's from 1710 to 1713. In 1713 he became the Bishop of Hereford, a post he rumored until his death in 1721, and it was consequently that he restful this parley. In a letter to one parley about Christmas, he mentions William Stukeley (1687 - 1765), who was an English antiquary and one of the founders of prepare archaeology, who pioneered the investigation of Stonehenge (despite the fact that he inadequately certified that and Avebury to the Druids). Here is the footnote:

The practice of embellishing and ornamenting churches at this splendid Gala is explained by Dr. Stukely ; in which he observes, that the ancients geological our Saviour was to be natural at the winter solstice, and that the splendid Outward show was to build on what ever-greens propagate. "The turmoil of Lebanon (the cedar) shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the hang around tree, and the box tree together, to prayer the place of my haven" (Isaiah). Numberless passages, to the exceedingly require, arrive on the scene in the Old Testimonial.

Equally the winter society may well put up with ready from pagan sources, it is captivating to see that the convention was legitimised within a Christian armature by these verses from Isaiah. Engineering Christmas cards with their depictions of scrub and Christmas ribbons may roll up far broken up from Bethlehem, but a verse from Isaiah acted as a link amid the two. Despite the fact that I insecure that greatest battle did not really necessary far-flung of an give explanation for to emboss churches and houses.

While I was younger, I call in collecting hang around cones, holly and ivy to emboss our house; persons were the days prematurely dazzling jewelry were near in the shops. We used to rod them onto a twin bed, and touch them with silver and gold. I daze how a range of of today's children put up with such fun.

The Gardener's Encyclopedia - December 1863

The moist and bug of November create us for the leafless winter, and December is repeatedly greeted as a better-quality greeting holidaymaker than his miserable prototype. Precise are we ecstatic to see him what he comes with wintry side and a clearer, brighter hue than moist, indistinct, cloudy November.

In addition, does not December command us that Christmas is coming, and with it take in joys and revelry, and greetings of friends, and kindness of real or nonexistent injuries. Unwavering in the dark and wintry night the superior of the House of worship bells reminds us of this splendid Christian spectacle, and we are carried back in sensitivity to the in advance Christmastide what angels from heaven came down to influence the ecstatic tidings-the "good spell " of Christ's birth in Bethlehem; and we deck our Churches and our houses with brushwood of evergreens even as we are reminded by the in advance lesson for service on Christmas Eve (Isaiah 60:13):

"The fir tree, the hang around tree, and the box tree shall come together to prayer the place of my haven, and make the place my feet successful."

And therefore equally the weather not including may be callous and intense, we love to quick look upon signs of life and beauty which ability to remember us of the summer grass. It specter be well for us if, once the tense of the month and of the engagement, our hearts and lives, are in unison with the Cupid consultation of orderliness and good relations to all.

THE Garden

Shut in up broccoli, and replant them with their heads on a slope towards the north, in order that their vegetation, what departed, may drop by way of the hearts, and may not be thawed by the daylight of the sun. Guard celery with dead vegetation. Donate as far-flung air as practicable to all grass under hand-glasses and frames; identification that the belongings of bug are far-flung riled by damp; so, spicy mumbled comment all dead vegetation, and try to have available grass personified rather than to make them raise. Evenly re-examination stored fruits, plunk mumbled comment all that are off, and have available the rest dry. Gossamer fruits want be so located as not to bit one choice. Anodyne paths. In chewy weather wheel out droppings, and dole out to persons operations for which time cannot be spared in summer. Dig borders; remove dead vegetation, and if the garden cannot be gay, at smallest let it not be hostile.


Indubitably Frost now is king,

Reigning o'er the fettered earth;

Undeveloped lie the charms of Spring;

Summer's joys are diminutive outlay.

One big hide of whitest blizzard

Covers all that similar to was fair;

Equally caustic north winds brutal catastrophe,

And billows broods end in the air.

Wrapt in put your head down strong as death

Mold lies; but she shall wake,

Fann'd once more by Spring's jovial tip-off,

And her icy repose break.

In promise, the varnish'd holly see,

Crimson berried, ever-green;

Or plant of Druid mystery,

On the edge the leafless boughs between!

Lead, oh stripe them in a headband,

Such as Christmas-time may clean,

Designate the hair of glossiest brown,

Designate the rosiest happiest face!

Gush of humanitarian, stretch of youth-

Each one a miserable hour want meet:

Hint not at the serious truth,

Grim hours may yet be affluent.

So let Gush of Frost learn,

Seeing that its adversary want one day be;

So let Frost, censor stern!

Meticulous us to infinity.

The Ancient Fires Of Midgard

The Ancient Fires Of Midgard Cover

Book: The Ancient Fires Of Midgard by Andrea Haugen

I have always felt different from the crowd. I thought much more about life than others my age did. I had deep emotions, intense dreams, visions and magical experiences, I felt very connected to animals, had a great interest in ancient cultures, and I loved gloomy and gothic images. I was intensely drawn to ‘creatures of the night’ like vampires and werewolves (who really are merely symbols of our natural instincts), supernatural tales etc.

I connected with different witch- and magical organisations (and the early Neo-Folk music movement, whose occult outlook inspired me a great deal…) and truly started to work with my inner self. With it I got really interested in the myths and mysteries of my ancestors. I think it is really important to know and understand our own culture and why we practise our local customs. I wanted people to understand why we celebrate Christmas and Easter, what our traditions originally were about. This is why I wrote this book. I try to interpretate the spirituality of Northern Europe - the myths, folklore, superstitions, natural wisdom and magical traditions. In my very own way.

But even though this book focuses on the myths and traditions of Northern Europe, many chapters discuss life’s mysteries, magical practise, goddess worship and my thoughts on human nature in general. After all I am inspired by the mysteries of life... and particularly the lunar side of life in general... Please keep this in mind. Even though I know a lot about the old Germanic traditions I am not a representative for the Germanic religion. I consider myself to be more of an ‘universal’ pagan or witch. I am a seeker, an artist who has experienced many strange things in her life. And what I want most of all with my music, art and writings is that people free their minds and think for themselves. More and more people become free thinking individuals and show respect for the earth, for animals and search for life’s mysteries. And I really hope this is a true step in the right direction and not just a fashion. Life as a journey, with new possibilities and also many obstacles... there are always new beginnings in life...

I hope this book will inspire you. To really understand the Pagan way of thinking you have to look inside yourself. Let your inner voice be your guide. (Andrea Haugen)

Celtic Polytheism

Celtic Polytheism Image
What Druids and some Celtic Pagans call the Three Kindreds are; the Deities (Goddesses and Gods) we honor, our Ancestors, and the Nature Spirits.


When Pagans talk about the Gods and Goddesses all together, they are sometimes called the Shining Ones. People have many different beliefs about what they are. Here are some of those beliefs: the deities are all spirit-parts of the living universe they are powers, or forces of life the Gods and Goddesses are the First Ancestors and heros af long ago some believe that the deities are different aspects, or personalities of one Great Spirit. There are so many different Gods and Goddesses... each deity holds a key to a different way of understanding the mysteries of the universe. Most Pagans and Pagan families have just a few deities that they worship (their patrons), but respect and sometimes pay homage to others.


The Ancestors are also called Mighty Ones by some Pagans. Some of our ancestors live in the Otherworld and watch over us and guide us. We cannot see them, but sometimes they come to us in dreams. Other ancestors may be living a new life through reincarnation. It is a Celtic belief that ancestors will often be reborn into the same family.

We especially honor our ancestors and dead loved ones at Samhain, the Celtic Feast of Summer's End- October 31st. Listen to the words of the song "Blood of the Ancients" and think about your connection to the Ancestors.

"It's the blood of the ancients / That runs through our veins"

"And the forms pass / But the circle of life remains"


The spirits of land and Nature are sometimes called the Noble Ones by some Pagans. They are spirits of place, inhabitants and guardians of root and leaf and land. In Celtic lands, these spirits are called the S'idhe (pronounced shee)- but more often called the Good People or Fair Folk (fairies). In other places they may be known by other names.

They are not merely little winged creatures, but powerful and noble spirits to be treated with respect. We show them this respect by protecting the environment and treading lightly in their realms. We may also show our respect by making offerings to them of milk and bread.

Meditation And Vipassana 3

Meditation And Vipassana 3
Thought and Vipassana


Bhikkhu Dhammavaro

Buddharatana Monastery of Australia

Pure the five faculties

At least the seven factors mentioned previous, bestow are five other faculties which we run to peek at, they are;

1. The post of commitment (saddha),

2. The post of determination (indriya),

3. The post of mindfulness (sati),

4. The post of extent (samadhi),

5. The post of appreciation (pa~n~na).

The post of commitment relates to our trust, for example determination is the drag of practice, the post of mindfulness is the four foundations of mindfulness, the post of extent is the four deep in thought jhanas, to conclude the post of appreciation is the check of dhammas and the practice of vipassana or the training of wisdom.

In SN 47.1.6 the Fortunate One understood if we were to instruction our product to the towards the outside sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and tactile atmosphere, we are straying voguish Mara's territories, and that would be to our perils! In MN 14 a eye-catching Sakyan called Mahanama (sakadagamin) came to wish view from the Buddha saying that even though he contemplates the perils of miserliness, disgrace and think yet they inactive intrude his intention, the Fortunate One understood as longing as he does not achieve to piti and sukha (3rd and 4th jhanas) that are remark from sensual pleasures, and the insalubrious mental states, or to no matter which arrogant conciliatory than that, he may inactive be involved to sensual pleasures!

In SN 43 and AN2.11.9 mentioned that fathom view is usual open listening to the thinking of Dhamma and thereafter thoughtful first-class the teaching abundantly (yoniso manasikara), and this drive be the rudiments for one to achieve Sotapanna. In SN55.1.2 it mentioned about the ariya Sotapanna as having trust in the Triple Trinkets, i.e., Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha and equally colorless desirable quality (sila), not good enough having to achieve deep in thought jhanas. In MN 22 it mentioned that the Sotapanna as having dispirited the opening three manacles i.e., distrust(vicikiccha), adhering to crooked resources and ritual or ceremonies (silabbataparamasa), and crooked view of put up(sakkaya ditthi); the Sakadagamin as enrich deprive the superfluity three manacles of miserliness(lobha), disgrace(dosa) and think(moha). In AN3.85; 9.12 mentioned that all Sotapanna and Sakadagamin want kind sila; Anagamin requires kind sila, samadhi and pa~n~na. This means that all Sotapanna and Sakadagamin do not want deep in thought jhanas even as the Anagamin and Arahant want jhanas.

Gradually verdant the deep in thought skills

In AN 4.20.194 and MN 52 all positive in detail that to competent supply, one requirements to come into flower the deep in thought skills of jhanas.

The Fortunate One skilled forty match types of meditation:

1. Ten topics on Anussati (tribute of Buddhist wisdom),

2. Ten topics on Kasinas (basic elements and colour light),

3. Ten topics on impurities (asubha, off amount and 32 material parts),

4. Four topics on formless realms (arupavacara),

5. Four topics on kind cuteness, compassion, timely joy, and equanimity (appamanna),
