  • Is whimsical good or bad? – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    Can whimsical be good? In nature the most obvious example of whimsical, must be the butterfly. The butterfly has four stages of development that could point towards an aspect of the positive side of whimsical; the eggs become larvae, that pupate before the butterfly one day appears.

    Review of the Missing Element - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Jan 1, 2017

    The Missing Element, by Debra Silverman M.A., bridges psychology and astrology, bringing the energy of the stars to the mental plane.  What I found so interesting with this book, is you do not need to know one degree of astrology. So, put down the calculator and pencil and open yourself to the wisdom of the ancients in your life. Have you ever noticed that some Aries people are just full steam ahead and matching off to take on the next mountain or how Cancer folks find it hard to get comfortable with you? “Psychology and spirituality are best friends,” says Debra. “Psychology without the cosmic or spiritual angle really doesn’t have the potency that allows people to understand from the biggest picture why they do what they do. Psychology is all about the ego and astrology is all about the soul. I marry the two.” In her new book, “The Missing Element: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition,” Debra takes this assertion a step further to bring our attention to the backbone of astrology—the four ...

    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 ...

    Every Card is a Work of Art, A Review of The Enchanted Tarot 25th Anniversary Edition - by Annette Rochelle Aben

    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. These two souls found each other, over 40 years ago and have been putting their unique energy into spiritual goods and services ever since. http://www.TheEnchantedWorld.com Each card in The Enchanted Tarot is a work of art, literally. Zerner spent years creating fabric collages of each card as 12" x 24" tapestry. So, the images you see are not what you have experienced with other tarot decks. 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, ...

    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 ...

    Soul Medicine - by Linda Lang

    Posted by Linda Lang on Mar 2, 2015

    I love self exploration. Edgar Cayce’s direction to “Know thyself” carries the call to explore your very own inner frontier. I love the idea of channeled spiritual artwork that can move you in a very personal way, and bring you awareness and confirmation.   I'd like to introduce you to one such artist, Sharon Bosmoore. She is an international Spirit Artist and Art Shaman, offering her gifts as a spiritual guide and mentor for sensitive souls, creatives and healers.  I met Sharon through an online event and I was really drawn to her work.   Sharon's art taps into higher frequencies of universal energy and the spirit world to activate healing and awakening.  Her art helps you align with your deeper wisdom, your creative genius, your sacred path, and helps you find the 'soul esteem' to live with purpose, meaning and self trust.   She lives in Australia and we had our session over Skype. Sharon is very down to earth, and I enjoyed spending our time together, not to mention how fascinating it was to watch my spirit drawing unfold in ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Champions of Olympus: Engage the Hero Within - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Jul 1, 2017

    I am greatly honored to have met, and spent some quality time with, both the author, Ivan Szendro, and his Inspiration, Gabri'El Alice Stollman, of Alice in the Upperland, a colorful, creative and truly mythic book. Ivan is a Shaman and Gabri'El is an Artist. They share a deep connection with Hungary and the timeless heroic tradition that is the heritage of all of humanity. You can read the book in two ways, from the bottom up (which gives you a sense of uplifting ascent) or, later on, from the top down (which is the way we've been conditioned to read things). I recommend both approaches, if only to discover that there is indeed a difference. For me there was a noticeable shift in consciousness while reading it upside-down similar to a mild meditative state.   On one level, Alice in the Upperland is the personal tale of a girl growing up in Queens during the post-war era. She is an American of Hungarian and Jewish descent. Her father, whom she idolizes, is ...

    Review: The Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune – a classic - by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    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 ...

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 ...

    Kindle Paper White - by Kat McCarthy

    Posted by Kathleen McCarthy on Mar 3, 2015

    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 ...

    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 ...

    L´Archéomètre - a review by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Aug 1, 2017

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. . . The subtitle says it all: Key to All the Religions and All Sciences of Antiquity; Synthetic Reformation of All Contemporary Arts. This is ambitious like nothing else but also almost impossible to achieve. It is regarded a classic in certain esoteric circles and spiritual groups, so let us take a closer look. Based on basic esoteric principles and a series of revelations, Saint-Yves d’Alveydre wrote his unique book Le Archeometre, or rather intended to write it. The book was actually written and completed by his close circle of friends or followers as well as his close family. What he refers to as his angel is the soul of his wife after she died. He was a spiritualist in the sense of communicating with the dead and continued to “talk” with her. Papus or Gérard Encausse's involvement in the book makes me critical, he seems not able to question or take a critical approach to things and Papus' own book on the Kabbalah, is a ...

    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, ...

    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 ...

    L.I.F.E. Nutrition and The Art of Clean Eating - by Sheri Sennhauser

    Posted by Sheri Sennhauser on Mar 1, 2016

    I have a confession to make...... up until January of this year the thought of "clean eating" scared the heck out of me.  My focus was always about loss.  I didn't want to stop eating certain things and couldn't bring myself to look at the substitutions seriously.  I would find a recipe and as soon as there was an ingredient I had never had before my nose turned up, my upper lip would  curl and the word "YUCK" was passing through my lips. However my body had become so unbalanced and unhealthy I knew SOMETHING had to be done.  Some weight loss would be nice but I was looking for a holistic method of helping my body deal with the Overlapping Connective Tissue Disease.  The autoimmune disease means my body is constantly at war with itself and it felt like there was no balance.  I would go to extremes of being too acidic one week to nothing the next.  I discussed my situation with my family doctor and he suggested looking ...

    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 ...

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jan 1, 2017

    When I Knew Better, I Did Better, ISBN 978-1-63177-539-0,  Mascot Books by Barbara Wood is the very personal story of a woman who found that by taking control over her life, she could finally be happy. Ms. Wood published this book in 2016 however it has been in the making for decades. While trying to come to grips with traumatic experiences dating back to her childhood, where she felt victimized, Ms. Wood realized that the choices she made reflected what she knew about life. What she grew up knowing, lead her to make adult choices that perpetuated a cycle of unhappiness and victimization. It took her over two decades of work to learn how to make better choices. In the process, she learned how to love herself, how to forgive and how to be happy. This is not a long book, less than 90 pages. Each of the pages tells the tale of a woman who wants to help others do better in their own lives. During her own search for ...

    Supernatural - A Book Review - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Feb 1, 2018

    As a child I attended Greek Parochial School for eight years. This provided me with a comprehensive bi-cultural education, for which I remain forever grateful. Roughly half our day was spent on Hellenic subjects such as Greek language, history, culture, religion, philosophy, and mythology Though I found my deepest resonances with classical myths and folk practices, I was also quite devout and started reading through the Old Testament, the Apocrypha and the New Testament to see what I could learn. Though much of it was familiar, I was quite surprised to discover that there seemed to be an obscure level of lore that was truly mythic. It appealed to me immensely, and hinted at a different way of interpreting both the War in Heaven and the Titanomachy. The riddle of the Sons of God and what appeared to be references to a Biblical pantheon intrigued me the most. And I couldn't really see how the actions of the God of Abraham proved him morally better than the Olympians, who unapologetically exercised power ...

Magnus: Well my first game was D&D the Red Box, followed by AD&D 2ndEdition and Drager og Dæmoner - a Swedish Sword & Sorcery game based on the RuneQuest rules. But then I moved to France and found out that there were worlds beyond the standard high fantasy genre. I brought In Nomine Satanis/Magna Veritas and Bloodlust home to Denmark – two of the greatest French games ever made. I’ve regularly played both games, and Bloodlust is my personal favorite Sword & Sorcery world. As for systems – I’ve been mostly a fan of GURPS until I found Savage Worlds.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    . 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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Olympian Space Opera, Sci-Fi and Superheroics - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Feb 1, 2017

    No effort was wasted, no time proved ill-spent. Would that this were so for all my endeavors! My Quest to re-make my Mythic Adventure multiverse into a greater vehicle for interactive storytelling is proceeding smoothly. Every Role Playing Game (RPG) product I've explored thus far has provided me with something of potential value. I found that even the games I had decided to use exclusively in the ancient Heroic Age actually offered me convenient links to the starry void and parallel dimensions. Precis Intermedia's Lords of Olympus facilitates integrating all types of settings, even alien ones, into a coherent whole, thus it remains a valuable resource. Deep7 and Heyoka Studios provide means to transplant Greco-Roman heroes into outer space through 1PG Star Legion and grant them godlike powers in 1PG Hero Force. Chimera Press' Mythic offers a great planet or plane to visit and the Eccentric Encounters series by Necromancers of the West Coast has enough mutated mythic monsters to keep things very lively for my adventuring heroes. But what of ...

    The Alexander technique, my experience - by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Jan 1, 2017

    This is a review of the Alexander technique. A therapy and self-help method developed by Frederick Matthias Alexander in the 1890s to alleviate breathing problems and hoarseness during public speaking. 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 ...

    The Gift of Cancer - A Life Changing Book - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

      More than likely every life on this planet has been touched by cancer at some point.  Perhaps a family member, a neighbor, your former teacher or even your beloved family pet received the diagnosis. Imagine now that YOU yourself were to hear those words spoken to you about YOU.  How would you react?  What would you do in such a case? Well I know how one young lady handled it, she used her diagnosis to turn her life around and in the process was completely healed AND used the process she went through to write a book to help others. Wendy Treynor. Ph. D. wrote The Gift of Cancer – A Life Changing Book – because that is how she saw it and that is what happened. This book is not only remarkable because it is a true story it IS the story. Filled with journal entries, hand drawn illustrations and the revelations of the true meanings of life and love, you will find a reason to celebrate the gift of ...

    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.

    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 ...

    Universal Energy Online Store and Family Constellations - by Sheri Sennhauser

    Posted by Sheri Sennhauser on Feb 1, 2016

    This month I want to introduce you to Kim Muzzi in Guelph Ontario.  Kim has an online store selling a variety of Orgones and offering numerous services which can be provided online as well as in person. I asked Kim to explain what Family Constellations is and here is her awesome response: "Family Constellations allow us to break patterns of suffering so that we can live healthier, happier, and more fulfilled lives. Bert Hellinger is the founder of this work. He studied and treated families for more than 50 years and he observed that many of us unconsciously “take on” destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, aloneness, alcoholism and even illness as a way of “belonging” in our families. He witnessed how the bond of love can cause a child to sacrifice her own best interest in an attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member. Family Constellations is a way of discovering underlying family bonds and forces that have been carried unconsciously over several generations and, as ...

    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 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 ...

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. Some books make deep impressions. This one is a surrealistic impression of wisdom combined with everything goes that has stayed with me and many others for decades. . The back cover gives an example of the wisdom which is spread like pearls throughout the pages of this little gem; Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished; If you're alive, it isn´t. "Illusions - Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah" is about a master Donald Shimoda a former mechanic that is able to do whatever you can imagine, like making wrenches levitate from distance into his hand. The book leaves you with images, options and concepts of reality that challenges your attachments to the materialistic earth life.

    A Moment In Time - Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on May 1, 2017

    A Moment in Time, by George L. Helmer, is a wonderful journey through the remarkable life of Steve Reeves. George was Steve's close friend and business partner, with access to Steve's records and momentos. He is very generous in sharing details, making this a rich and lavishly illustrated biography. Starting a few generations before Steve's birth, A Moment in Time sets the stage for the conditions Steve encountered when entering our world. And his early life was not easy. Steve's parents were often on the move and his father Lester died when he was still a toddler. He and his mother Goldie stayed with family until prospects picked up, and they did. Steve was educated at Deaconess, a boarding school and orphanage while his mother worked, established herself and built a household. As a young child Steve had many adventures and performed several heroic deeds. He rode horses at three, survived an earthquake, got hit and dragged by a car... all before starting public school! He also discovered bodybuilding. Over time he constructed ...
