  • The Secret of Your Feet – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    The feet are perhaps the most neglected part of your body. Many people use their feet so little that they degenerate quicker than any other part of the human economy. Grown ups with athletes feet, dry skin, corns, cracks in the soles, fungi on the nails of the feet or deformed toes are very common. On the […]

    Light Atonement by Ariyana, a star child - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jul 1, 2015

    Perhaps we are being prepared our entire lives to do an be whatever it is we are being called upon to be doing and being while here in this earth in this particular incarnation. This is exactly what was running through my head as I finished reading Light Atonement by Ariyana, a star child ©2015, Prospecta Press. Perhaps there are people we will meet, places we are drawn to make our homes as well as jobs we choose simply because the journey we came here to experience requires this. Yet at the time this is not completely apparent. Ariyana’s experiences in what will be her first book (of this I am certain) weave this thought into reality and does it so well that you will find yourself pondering your own life at the end of each chapter.  What is so cool about the thought provoking chapters is that at the end of each, Ariyana provides us with space to post our “reflections” encouraging us with questions as guides. The book chronicles ...

    How To Do All Things - A Book Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Jan 1, 2018

    The third section of this four-part text by Mark-Age consists of fifty How-To's, the first of which is How To...' Do All Things'. This bold heading also happens to be the title for the book as a whole and the short paragraph that follows provides a great summary for everything expounded upon in the entire volume. How To Do All Things is indeed a tightly knit tome and all the information it contains simultaneously rests firmly upon and greatly expands every other piece of information contained therein. This hologram of a book is well worth reading, from cover to cover, for it gives the reader practical and time-tested tools for recognizing their own divine nature, establishing a working relationship with Spirit itself and becoming an active agent in the unfoldment of the Spiritual Hierarchy's Divine Plan. The Mark Age was the period between 1960 to 2000, a forty year span of time that helped wrap up the old Age of Pisces and prepare humanity for living in the New Aquarian Age. This period ...

    Posted by Sheri Sennhauser on Apr 1, 2016

    I have been creating like crazy lately!!! It must be the change in the season I am so loving saying goodbye to winter and welcoming back the sun.  A while back I promised a close friend I would make her a Book Of Shadows and until I was sidelined with the nastiest flu bug I have ever met everything was going tickety boo.  However wrestling with this particular outbreak proved to be prolonged.  I have the covers done, some parchment tea dyed and the digital kit I purchased, printed and ready to go.  Until I have the strength back to finish the new project I wanted to share with you a little Etsy shop I found.   this is the Book of Shadows kit I purchased from Screech Owl Studio.  It is the sweetest 5x7 kit I have purchased in a long time.  I love the imagery and the personal touches.  I also purchased another kit called Rooks and Ravens to use with the Book of Shadows, I will be channeling my ...

    Gringo Parade - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Mar 2, 2015

    Gringo Parade by Jonathan Ojanpera is a book I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys not only an adventure based on a true story but one told through the eyes of a young person.  Although published a couple decades after the original experience, one can tell that the memory is as alive in the author’s mind as the experience was for a teenage missionary fresh out of high school. This is a novella about the group of wealthy missionaries “Nick” is part of and their journey to a poor village in Costa Rica.  Even though he is there to help the villagers with their religious endeavors, he IS a young American man, and as such makes the journey as much about filling his needs as he does fulfilling his duties. Of course Nick isn’t alone in this journey as he is traveling with many other young people including the impressionable and somewhat naïve Tom who provides a nice contrast to the more worldly nature of the main character. And it is this ...

    The I Ching answers your question – a classic – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Jul 1, 2017

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. Here is the review of another classic. I Ching or The book of Changes or Classic of Changes is one of the most ancient books we have. It is an ancient divination book and the oldest Chinese classic. It is ascribed to cultural heroes as King Wen and the legendary world ruler Fu Xi, but its author will probably remain a mystery. It is regarded as close to 3000 years old, but might be older. It also is likely that its knowledge was passed on verbally before it was written down. It is based on eternal principles and as such it is ageless. There are no other two books so old and so much used today as the I Ching and the Bible. The I Ching is not a book you read, but a book you consult when you have a challenge, a difficult decision or important question in your life. Some people use Tarot cards, the patterns in the bottom of ...

    A Feast of Wise Words: A Review of The Voice of Hermes - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Dec 1, 2017

    The city of Aurelius on Hermes, which greatly influenced the Greco-Roman culture, serves as the Philosophical Learning Center of the Shamballah system that guides the evolutionary path of the human spirit. In the central Athenian section of Aurelius one can experience the Classical World in all its splendor. The original structures that inspired the Parthenon and the Temple of Apollo can be found in this district. One can even hear such luminaries as Socrates, Plato, Pythagoras and Lucretius debating the finer points of their individual intellectual legacies. And if one is fortunate, Plutarch himself may give them a guided tour of this wondrous place, as he did to Ernest and Ruth Norman, co-founders of Unarius, back in 1959. Though the 'Love of Truth' movement of ancient Hellas is greatly esteemed in Aurelius, other terrestrial thought systems are also honored and preserved. Aurelius is truly multicultural and their mental treasures are lovingly gathered from all cultures of our globe from our prehistory to the present time. The effects of philosophy on music, art and ...

    i-Comfortable Victim a novel based on true events - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

    Through the art of story-telling, Attorney, Author, Founder, Motivational Speaker, Advocate Against Abuse, Victoria E. Broussard, Esq. presents i-Comfortable Victim, a novel based on true events. What you need to know right from the start is that this is based on the author’s personal experiences and as such provides the ability for the reader to relate to the fictional character of Saxxine De La Croix on a heart level. Yes the true events that inspired the book are repeated childhood sexually abuse however this book does more than simply take us through that journey by allowing us to see beneath the façade of the “victim” once they have become an adult.  Saxxine De La Croix does become a very successful adult and to the outside world everything appears to be business as usual but when Saxxine had to face the world behind the façade herself, the journey within the journey begins.  This book will not only take you on a journey of a woman’s life but it will take YOU on ...

    The Mysteries of Yesod - a classic - by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Jun 1, 2017

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. I have picked yet another classic from my bookshelf. This is a must for the seeker on the spiritual path. Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov did not write books, but his lectures are collected together and made into books on different topics. Yesod in Hebrew means foundation or base. This is a book of the importance of purity on all levels. The old Egyptians priests had to start as web-priests learning about purity before they could enter the temple. If you are going somewhere nice, meeting your beloved or having guests you take extra effort to make yourself and your home clean and nice. The same is important if you prepare for spiritual work. This book teaches you not only the immense significance of purity, but turns it from some kind of repression to a joy and liberation. We have a sense of wellbeing and vitality, we know when we feel vital and healthy or not, in this book you learn many ways to ...

    Choose – The Book - by Kat McCarthy

    Posted by Kathleen McCarthy on Feb 1, 2015

    True to her form, my friend, award winning, bestselling author Annette Rochelle Aben has created another clever little powerhouse of a book. Choose, The Two Step Plan is an excellent book of positive reinforcement that is in large print so it is easy to read. It is also very clear in its objective of offering a more powerful and successful way of looking and experiencing live. Its ease of understanding is so complete, even children understand the book and what it is offering. Choose would be an outstanding choice for someone who is relearning how to think for general success in life. Each part begins with powerful choices followed by strong but simple and effective action steps. I would absolutely recommend this as a gift to someone who is in the midst of crucial life changes or who are new to this life philosophy.

    The Tablets of Light - A Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Oct 1, 2017

    The Tablets of Light, channeled and co-authored by Danielle Rama Hoffman, is not a book in the usual sense of the word. It looks like a book, is structured and can be read like one, but it is not a standard terrestrial document with a clear beginning, middle or end. It is instead a timeless invitation to connect with Source itself, plus an opportunity to experience yourself as a multidimensional being interacting with other multidimensional beings (most notably Thoth) on a multidimensional level.Thoth was called Hermes and Mercury by my Greco-Roman ancestors and as Trismegistus (the Thrice Great) he is the ultimate Revelator of the Western Mystery Tradition. There is a wealth of information contained between the covers, including thought-provoking insights on Unity Consciousness,Wholeness, Oracular Vision, Genius, Creativity, Evolution, Light, our innate Divinity and our unique reasons for incarnating in the here and now. Simple exercises are scattered throughout The Tablets of Light and serve to further immerse you into Thoth's level of reality. Thoth's style is personal, welcoming and conversational. It subtly ...

    Review of Crow Cross Roads Spell Candle Company - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Jan 1, 2016

    In this day and time, it’s easy to come by candles and wax melts. Every dollar store has then but if you prefer long lasting, good quality, you may want to shop the small specialty stores for that special scent. I personally prefer to use products that are hand crafted by someone that knows what they are making not something that has been made 1000 at a time. With Crows Cross Roads Candles and Wax Melts, you get not just a set of special made manifesting candles but products that been made in small good batches which, if you follow Silver Raven’s news feed, can watch them being made step by step. I ordered some candle and wax melts, to aid in my creativity and also to bring in some abundance. Within a few days looking at my news feed, I saw her posting pictures of her mixing herbs, and pouring my candles, along with other orders. It was the process, step by step, showing me not only what was going into ...

    SELF-AID: Inspirations to Turn Struggles into Success - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

    Personal triumph is a remarkable feeling and when we can share tools we have used to achieve this remarkable feeling with others, then we can experience the full circle of oneness. In her book, SELF-AID: Inspirations to Turn Struggles into Success, Helen Woo accomplishes just this.  Each page is filled with the wisdom and wit of not only the author but others who have found their way through the darkness in to the light. What is unique is that Helen Woo doesn’t focus on the details of the story that brought her to writing this book as many ‘self-help’ books are want to do.  In fact one is presented with statements such as “…to overcome my struggles and inspire me to look for the light when I feel trapped in the darkness.” And “They help me achieve more daily and motivate me to take action when needed.” So one gets the idea that everything written in this book has the potential to help ANY person in any GIVEN situation which is ...

    I love books. I love the way they smell, the way they feel in my hands and the way they take my mind into other worlds and ideas. I loved the way they sound as I turn the pages an even how they look in stacks and on the shelf. And I loved going to the book store to buy my books, especially used book stores. I swore I would never, ever, EVER buy a digital book system like a kindle. Not ever!! You know the old saying – never say never. In October 2014 I fell down our basement stairs and destroyed my wrist and injured the soft tissue in my shoulder resulting in surgery. I couldn’t do much for more than a month, not even hold a book. My dear sweet husband bought me a paper white kindle because they are light and I didn’t have to hold it open. Extreme circumstances found me very grateful for something I had originally said I would never use. And I loved it! During that ...

    The Staircase on Pine Street - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jun 1, 2015

    . How does Alzheimer's disease affect a little girl?  How does that little girl's grandfather handle being the one afflicted? What role does the man's daughter play in this scenario? All of these questions are beautifully addressed in the book The Staircase on Pine Street written by Mariana Llanos (and illustrated by Kate Gattey). In this short but touching tale we are immersed into the worlds of all 3 characters enough to empathize with each of their lives whether or not we have been personally touched by this disease. Kudos to Llanos for using knowledge gathered from several sources to develop a story line that appears to have been lifted directly from first-hand experience. By her own admission this is not auto biographical yet the reader would never walk away feeling this was anything other than true-to-life. Because the child, Lilly, is the one around whom this story revolves it makes this book perfect for young people.  It is written with an innocence that will transport any one or any age back ...

    David Wood‘s Crown and Conjure, Oil and Pump Spray - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Dec 1, 2015

    When I purchased some crown and conjure oils, I found them to be very pleasant and heavily scented, without that under laying scent you get with some oil blends. The oil you can tell has quality, it is thick and smooth to the touch. For those who used blended oils back in the early 80’s, these oils will remind you of them, before the oils when into mass production, as your oil is not blended until you order them. You can tell that they are freshly made and have not been setting on a shelf for God knows how long. Now I am very impressed when it comes to packaging. When I got the oil I ordered, it came packaged, in not one padded envelope but two, and each bottle was individually wrapped. The oil comes in glass bottles, not cheap plastic. Plus even through all the packaging, you could smell the scent of the oil. While I understand that for many,  the idea of the word conjuring could throw you off but ...

    The Superyogi Scenario - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jul 1, 2015

    It would never have been my first choice, to read a book about super heroes saving the world from certain destruction. Never read comics regularly, unless you count the Sunday papers and then it was Family Circus, Blondie and Garfield. So when The Superyogi Scenario landed in my lap I was less than enthusiastic about cracking the cover. Of course I was scheduled to interview the author, James Connor and I DO read the books of those I am interviewing on the radio so it HAD to happen, eventually. With a mere 3 days left before the interview I took a deep breath and began my long day’s journey. When I finally came back up for air, I was more than 3 chapters in and totally hooked! Yes, The Superyogi Scenario has all the elements of a terrific thriller, layers of intrigue, complex characters and of course the compelling need for good to triumph over evil.  Yet what I never expected was for Connor to be able to take fantasy and ...

    Lord Have Murphy, Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Sep 1, 2015

    Lord Have Murphy, what a title for a book. Yet if that doesn’t make you crack a smile, the book by the same name may just do the trick!  Fran Shaw Ph.D. gives the irreverently blunt outlook of Murphy, voice in this tour-de-force.  Truth be known, much of what Murphy shares is merely what is inside the heads of many who are Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace. As we find out, when we hop on this freight train of entertainment; “attention is the teacher.” Murphy serves up food for spiritual thought not because we don’t know it, moreover so we can find others out there who are experiencing the same type of “mass instruction” over load.  Everywhere we tturn, there is someone espousing this formula or that edict. We may find ourselves trying too hard to make it all fit into our lives.  This can be more stress-filled than that which we strive to eliminate from our day-to-day. Stress + stress doesn’t not = enlightenment.  Murphy brings this to our ...

    Jaspar's War by Cym Lowell - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

    There is a famous quote that says that women are much like tea bags because you don’t know how strong they are until they are in hot water.  I imagine this is what the heroine of the debut novel by Cym Lowell discovered as she endured Jaspar’s War. While there are as many sub plots in this thriller it begins with one strong scenario: a pampered socialite, married to the United States Secretary of the Treasury, has her life turned upside down when she finds out her husband’s government jet has crashed, her children have vanished and that she has been tagged as the key player in the whole drama. As the sub plots unfold, Jaspar’s journey to rescue her children takes so many seemingly strange twists and turns that putting this whole thing together appears as intricately connected as a three tier, 3D jigsaw puzzle. Not that this is a bad thing, it’s actually part of the charm of a story that is anything other than charming. Jaspar Moran finds herself ...

    Let's Compare Cosmologies: A Review of 1000 Keys to the Truth - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Nov 1, 2017

    Nada-Yolanda and El Morya (aka Mark Age) began their public mission in 1960 by establishing the Mark-Age organization and systematically actualizing plans laid milleniums ago by the Hierarchal Board of our Solar System to help this planet's denizens awaken to their divine heritage and ascend to fourth dimensional consciousness. The Mark-Age material, a vast collection of channeled messages lovingly recorded and patiently transcribed over the past sixty plus years, is a resource of incalculable worth to any and all whose life-work is dedicated to the spiritual growth and evolution of humanity. Daunting as the task of approaching and immersing oneself in all this data may seem, the Mark-Age School of Education, through its publications, does an excellent job of explaining their impressively comprehensive metaphysical system. 1000 Keys to the Truth is a slim volume comprised of one thousand numbered paragraphs divided into forty chapters. Each chapter focuses on a different topic, ranging from the nature of deity to the defining of obscure esoteric terms. All of the information was selected from Nada-Yolanda's voluminous ...

    Soothe your soul, bring peace to your mind and find a connection with Spirit when you listen to the music of award-winning artist, David A. Martinka. For several years now I have enjoyed his melodious compositions and performances via the CDs he has available on his websites: www.redbellymusic.com and www.sunshadows.net and I would like to invite YOU the party.  David is a 5th generation musician and uses his gifts to blend Native Slovak and Native American Flute music together. The relaxing tones are a great accompaniment for meditation or healing times but rest assured that you need not be in need of either meditating or healing to enjoy David’s music as you can listen anytime you like! I personally enjoy popping the CD, Legends of Time II, Inner Peace in while I am writing, reading and especially at night as I am drifting off to sleep.  I find the music helps me think deeper, can help me cultivate a calmness and keeps me company.

    For the Love of the Gods - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Mar 1, 2017

    As both a Theosophist and a Theurgist I greatly enjoyed For the Love of the Gods by Brandy Williams. It is an excellent introduction to, and synthesis of, the ancient art of embodying and expressing divinity in our daily lives and through our everyday actions. The first part of the book cleverly and creatively introduces you to the teachings of the Theurgists, from Neitokrity in Ancient Kemet to modern practitioners, through a chain of colorful and insightful biographical tales. How the lives the Theurgists lived, and the societies that shaped them contributed to the evolution of their immortal art is brilliantly demonstrated. Theurgy took root and grew in multicultural urban environments, where diversity and the exchange of ideas was most likely to occur and be recognized as something of great value. Theurgy establishes bridges between our world and the Higher Realms. The divine can be anchored in objects, such as statues, through ritual, or in the very core of our being. Theurgy embraces and incorporates mythology, spirituality, religion, shamanism and magical practice. Though ...

It is an educational process or a method of bodymindfulness. It makes you aware of your habitual misuse through getting bodymindful again. You reprogram yourself and regain the ability to realign posture and balanced gracious movements. It is the homeopathy of manual therapy or the manual therapy equivalent to patient centred therapy. Let me explain through my experience. Nigel Hornby brought the Alexander technique, AT to Norway and I regard him as the master teacher of this therapy in the country. He kindly offered me to try some sessions to see if it could help my pain and discomfort after an injury to my head and neck. So I decided to give it a try. Let me share my experience and reflections on the Alexander technique (AT). The proof of the pudding is in the eating, is a well known saying. And this review ...

    Girl Tribe and Momspired - by Sheri Sennhauser

    Posted by Sheri Sennhauser on Aug 1, 2016

    When we dare to dream and chase rainbows our lives become empowered!  I have been getting to know Kim McConaghy for quite some time and it all started at a little Holistic Heath fair in Forest Ontario.  Since meeting that day I have felt like part of her family.  Kim, her mom Elly, Aunt Dori and her mother-in-law, Jodi now attend my meditation circles and have helped promote my services in more ways than I can say thank you!  But THANK YOU!! Girl Tribe and Momspired are excellent resources for nutrition, beauty and so much more!  These are positive healthy groups...by girls for girls, age is of no consequence!  I follow all the wonderful events, products and I get to lead the meditation nights!!  This is all about owning our power and being who are were always meant to be!  But without losing our feminine edge, without becoming "hard".  Ladies we get to remain soft and mysterious.

    Write Right from God, by Tom Bird

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jan 1, 2016

    For those who have always felt the calling to write, thought it was about time they get writing or sit in front of a computer screen from time to time, too terrified to begin, may I suggest you pick up a copy of Write Right from God by Tom Bird.  This relatively small book packs a large amount of information in its easy-to-read, flowing 101 pages. Tom sees writing as a “Spiritual” experience and as such, seeks to bring the opportunity to as many people as possible.  Of course getting a book published is the ultimate dream, however what the writers experience during the creation of the book is profound and in most, if not all cases, life changing. With this book (whose subtitle is You, Words, Writing and Your Divine Purpose), Bird shares insight as well as offers encouragement to all who aspire to put pen to paper to set their thoughts free. What Bird has discovered (and teaches in his seminars and workshops) is that a transformation of one’s ...

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Nov 1, 2017

     I received a copy of this beautiful tarot card deck from the creators, in exchange for an honest review.  However, this did NOT influence my review. Whether or not you are familiar with the tarot, you will find yourself enchanted with this deck. A deck appropriately titled: The Enchanted Tarot – 25th Anniversary Edition. Yes, a reissue of a classic tool of divination created by the world-renowned team of artist, Amy Zerner and her astrologer husband, Monte Farber.

Farber's wisdom and knowledge, fills the companion book to ensure that anyone using the deck will be able to connect with their own Divinity. When you combine the two, ...

    SOUL original poetry by GiGi Jones The Writer - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Mar 2, 2015

    When a person puts their soul into food we can taste it.  When a person puts their soul into a song, it moves us.  When a person puts their soul into a work of art, we see it.  So is it any wonder that the first book published by GiGi Jones “The Writer” is as tasty a visual treat (breath taking photographs) as it is a moving experience, after all she titled it SOUL. The original poetry on the pages of this beautifully crafted book is meant to be savored, not rushed through by any means. Each offering presents the story of an experience the author has lived through, come through and grown through to become the woman of strength she is today. While you may not find yourself on every page, you will find the ones that touch you deeply and perhaps once touched you will realize that emotions are something that unites people from all walks of life, all socio-economic backgrounds, races, genders and faiths.  Emotions hold tremendous power over ...

    Review of smartphones and artificial intelligence - by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Oct 1, 2017

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. . . I phone X is here! Run and get it, is the message. Few gadgets receive so much attention as new smartphones. Let me take you through a review of smartphones and what they do to our soul. Before smartphones, I used to remember many phone numbers; my parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, my best friends many colleges and even many of the patients that most frequently contacted me. Not to mention the phone to the taxi, a few takeaways, the railway info and more. It was no effort. Today I know less than ten numbers by heart. Many people do not even know their own number because the smartphone knows. I do not remember the mobile phone of anybody in the family but my wife. That is due to the smartphone. My phone also has a calculator and if I did not like to challenge my brain and people using a calculator, I would soon also forget that multiplying by 25 is the ...

    Flying Colors by Sarah Moore - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

     WWII may look like the alphabet to some but to those of us who had parents or grandparents who served their country in the armed forces during the 1940’s, we recognize those 4 characters as standing for World War Two. As this was such a very long time ago, there are not many around who can provide a first-hand account of the experience and as luck would have it, we have the honor and privilege to meet one such individual in the book Flying Colors by Sarah Moore.  Victor “Vic” Tatelman is now 94 years old but at one time he was a soldier in the United States Army Air Corps. By way of his personal narrative, we step back into of one of the most historic times of the 20th century.  Sarah Moore’s labor of love has given birth to Flying Colors which immortalizes this mortal man in fine style. The tale is not always pretty, we read of the horrors of war and can only imagine what it must ...

    Odyssey of the Gods by Erich Von Daniken: A Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Apr 1, 2018

    In Greek mythology there are tales of sentient orbs and golden sky-chariots, wondrous robots and human hybrids, genetic experimentation spanning generations and voyages to OtherWorlds beyond the veils which billow on the borders of our perception. No wonder Erich Von Daniken, our planet's greatest proponent of the Ancient Astronaut theory, found strong support for his views in the pages of the Argonautica, the Iliad, the Odyssey, Critias and many other works of ancient Mediterranean authors. Von Daniken cross-references his Hellenic findings with antique material from all over the world. Ancient people have left us an overwhelming amount of information about super-human beings with advanced technology who came from the heavens, lived on mountaintops, warred amongst themselves, taught civilized arts to our ancestors, interbred with mortals to produce kings and heroes, then vanished - after vowing to someday return. There is a lot of interesting material on the Sacred Geometry of ancient Greek sites, the mysterious mechanical fragment from Anticythera, Stone Age cyclopean masonry, the remains of Giants, the riddle of Troy and Plato's ...

    A Review of 'The Oracles of Apollo' - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Aug 1, 2017

    I greatly enjoy experimenting with divination systems, especially those with an Olympian theme. Oracles played a vital role in Ancient Greek society and their influence and power reverberate throughout Greco-Roman mythology. Several Oracles, especially those of Apollo at Delphi and that of Zeus Ammon in Libya, played important roles in the adventures of the Theban Hercules. Though I love Tarot and Divination Decks, and often use them, I tend to prefer adaptations of techniques my ancestors actually used, such as gleaning guidance through dreams, omens, synchronicities and strong inner promptings. The Oracles of Apollo by John Opsopaus, Ph.D. has increased my available options by two and promises to provide me with months of Ancient Greek Oracular adventures. The author is a university professor and a scholar well versed in the esoteric practices of Hellenic Antiquity. The book is informative and very easy to read. It is also well constructed, well written and quite practical. Part I is an excellent introduction to, and overview of, 'Ancient Greek Divination'. It also provides you with rituals and ...

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Sep 1, 2017

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. . . If you want to know anything about Kabbalah or Qabalah to use Dion Fortune's spelling, this book is a must. It is the number one introduction book to the central concepts of the Tree of Life. After a short introduction the main structure in the book is based on the Tree of Life and its ten spheres or Sephirot. The book is divided in three parts. The first part gives some overviews and introduces the reader to Qabalah as the ”yoga of the west." After some chapters on spirituality and particularly in the Qabalistic tradition, Fortune gives an overview of the Tree of Life and its structure. The second part is a detailed overview of the 6 firsts spheres in the Tree of Life and the third part covers the last 4 spheres. These chapters follow the same format. They are put forward with a list of attributes to each sphere as; title, magical image, god name, archangel, virtue ++++ Then numbered paragraphs ...

    It's spooky by David Wood Review - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Feb 1, 2016

    David Wood is a mainstream recording artist based in Columbus, Ohio. His music has been described by local media as the POP/Dance Alternative with a dash of Soul. . The music of David Wood often hits home with his blend of upbeat POP music and ballads. His latest song, 'It’s Spooky', touches on a deeper subject than the normal 'love and fun' connection that many other mainstream music stations seem to dump into our car radios. I feel it goes deeper into understanding how some relationships tend to leave battle scars which future relationships have to work past. In an interview in late October Mr. Wood shared that the song was about an abusive relationship that he had with a music manger early in his career and how it left scars that other relationships would have to work past. Abuse in itself and in any form leaves that terror in your heart. Even basic smells or just sounds will bring one back to the same position or fear and terror. This song ...

    The Practice, Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace and Uncovering Happiness by Barb Schmidt - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

    There are more than a lot of books on the market these days that try to teach us how to make our lives better.  What I believe sets The Practice, Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace and Uncovering Happiness by Barb Schmidt apart from other books in the spirituality category, is the sincerity of Schmidt. One gets an immediate sense of genuine authority from the start yet it is not about authority over the reader or even life, it’s about authority over herself.  See, this book gives us the steps Schmidt took to bring herself into balance which in turn has allowed her to live a more peace-filled life. The tools Schmidt refers to include meditation and mantra which when coupled with the step-by-step instructions, create an outline that pretty much anyone willing to do the work can use to achieve positive results. Naturally the impetus for Schmidt’s transformation will not resonate with some but because she illustrates her success with her true-life examples, we find ourselves considering that ...

    Zeus and the Rise of the Olympians - A Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Mar 1, 2018

    Between my mom's mythic bedtime stories, a very thorough Greek Parochial School education, and my own life-long passion for the Mythology of my ancestors, the tale of Father Zeus' ascent to the Throne of Mount Olympus is already very much a part of me. It is firmly etched on my neurons and comfortably nestled in all the strata of my psyche. As the story is already so familiar to me, I was very pleasantly surprised by the delight I experienced while reading Zeus and the Rise of the Olympians by Ryan Foley. Framed as classroom instruction during the reign of Zeus, with students occasionally asking questions to clarify enigmatic elements in the original myths, the graphic novel covers the reigns of three Hellenic pantheons: the Primordials, the Titans and the Olympians. Ryan's well crafted words convey the saga of divine succession powerfully and effectively. His selection and use of source material is brilliant and his own creative spin greatly adds to the enjoyment of the account. The unique personalities and motivations of Ouranos, ...
