Colors of the Aura

Aura Colors

Life is full of color and like so many other things on your path, color also has meaning. They are representations of messages from your higher self, God, dreams, whatever the label. But you don’t have to be a Metaphysician to understand the importance of color in your life. It exists in every day experiences.

Many people associate the color white with God, pink with love and purple with royalty or spirituality. The following is a brief outline of primary colors and their common interpretation, but remember to use this information only as a guide.

Colors generally have two meanings depending on the appearance (vibrant v. dull) and state (consistent v. spiked). Colors such as black and brown can denote the same emotion regardless of appearance.

Feng Shui Basics

Feng Shui

What is Feng Shui ?

The Feng Shui is very old and comes from the ancient Chinese culture. As we move into the 21st century the use of Feng Shui in the modern world is astounding and widespread. More and more people who would not even consider Feng Shui, because of its mystical or superstitious aspects, are now applying it in their homes or office with outstanding results.

One of the reasons for this modern acceptance is that Feng Shui is not just something for the Asian mind, but its application is fundamental to all peoples well being. In essence you do not have to be Chinese to incorporate Feng Shui into modern life style. Feng Shui allows energy to flow in a productive and harmonious way.

There are many Druid Organizations around the world today and it seems extremely difficult to know where to go and how to proceed upon the Druidic path. However, in surveying many of the groups that exist, I have selected to herein introduce the world of Druidry to you with excerpts taken from The Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids, (OBOD), (not forgetting of course to mention the two largest Druid Orders in America, which are Keltria and A.D.F).

However, OBOD which is probably the largest and most definitely the oldest order of Druidism in the world today is based in the UK, (having members from all around the globe), actually has a great heritage spanning back well into the early 1700’s that we know of and of course was very Masonic in its foundations at the start, but has since gone a little more New Age if anything.

Notes on Lucid Dreaming

Since the last posting on Lucid Dreaming, I have had lot’s of email asking so many questions about what exactly lucid dreaming is, and a little more on how to do it. Actually, it’s a hard subject to discuss as so many perspectives are illusive and more about personal perception and manipulation, besides the fact that I am really no expert and can only point in the general direction.

That means that it is all up to the practitioner to practice and experiment, as is usual. A wonderful gentleman from the US, Erin J. Wamsley tried very hard to lay out a blue print in a great little book in explaining lucid dreaming and did a very good job of it, but he still had to revert to “personal experiences” to sort of “guide the way” if you will.

Basic Spell Construction

The power of real magick cannot be found in a recipe book. If it were only  that easy! Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely and a great pity that one will stumble upon the hidden grimoire or mystic amulet that will instantly grant one “magical powers”. The ability to perform real magic is attained only through diligent practice, hard work and inner inspiration”.

Magick can only be “learned” by experiencing it by whatever means available. The basic message of magick is that, what is fundamental to magick is the actual doing of it – that like sex, no amount of theorising and intellectualisation can substitute for the actual experience.

The Herb Cabinet

Herbs are found and used around the world. Every culture from time immemorial has used herbs from their regions not only for cooking, but for for healing and for magick. Herbs are probably still the most accessible of the correspondences used in magick, although some of the various varieties may take a little searching in order to obtain them.

As well as learning about herbs from the usual sources in most Witchcraft books, try to find books and other sources with listings of the local flora for your own particular region. You might also be surprised as to what is available in your neighborhood shops and markets if you look carefully enough.
