Removing the Stigma of Mental Illness

There has been a lot of negative things being said about mental illness and those who suffer from it. One repeated phrase is " broken doll". No one is a "broken doll" unless they chose to be and those who have been attacked and made fun of are seeking help to repair what has been broken in the past and I applaud them for it! It's a very hard thing to do. I know because I have suffered from depression. It's hard work but the rewards of recovery are well worth the struggle. I think it is a very… Continue

Sad State of Affairs

When people stoop so low as to make fun of or hurt someone intentionally. Posting screen shots of what they've said in a private group setting. Or posting blogs poking fun at mental illnesses. What's even sadder is that they're allowed to continue with this behavior.

This shows me that some humans have lost their humanity.

Moontime (Menstrual) Rituals

What do you do to celebrate your menstrual cycles? I'm looking for ideas on things I could do monthly to celebrate my connection to the Goddess and all other women on earth.

I plan on making an altar but not quite sure what to put on it. I'd also like some meditation ideas. I was thinking of making some bath salts for a cleansing. Do you think the ritual should be done at the beginning or the end, or both?…

I Support Same Sex Marriage!

You know I don't even really like that term 'Gay" or 'Same Sex ' Marriage. I support marriage. I support love. When two people love one another, regardless of their sex, it's a sign of hope. It's a sign that we haven't totally lost our humanity. It's a sign of new beginnings. That's what marriage is. Doesn't matter if they're of the opposite sex or the same sex. Love is what it is, exciting, hopeful, full of dreams that 2 PEOPLE can make come true TOGETHER.

You hear some folks… Continue

Oh too good not to share.

I love making things that I don't have to spend a lot of money on and don't want to spend $3 on a box of carpet fresh, especially when I cant find a scent that I love. So I took a box of baking soda and added some cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and some pure vanilla extract and created my own.

Oh my it smells like someone has been baking!

What other cleaning supplies have you made yourself?

What Is A Serial Bully?

First I'll tell you what they're not. They're not cute. They're not funny. They're not witty or smart. The more you feed them the more you encourage and reinforce their negative behavior. Many people will side with a bully out of fear of retribution. Many times a bully is or was a victim of another bully or abusive situation. Bullies are often just as weak and defenseless as they wish their victims to be. They are emotionally crippled in some way and must make others feel bad in order to… Continue

Making Fun Of Mental Illness

I have to say I'm very disappointed. Since when did it become ok to make fun of someone who is obviously having issues? I wonder if you all realize that maybe you could push this person to the edge and cause them to harm themselves. Since when did you all lose your humanity? It's very sad and I'm very disappointed.

Due to on going harassment and the general attitude of certain other Pagan groups it seems to me that Wiccans are not safe on Pagan Space. We are constantly bashed and lies are told about what we believe. Insinuations are made with out the perpetrators knowing anything about the belief. Very little is done to protect the Wiccans from persecution here on PS.

Maybe you think we're an easy target because of the " An Harm None" aspect of our beliefs. I'm here to tell you right here and… Continue

Cry baby

Aww dont you just hate it when someone puts their opinion out there for all to read and then goes and cries to the powers that be that they're being attacked! I mean come on you put your shit out there for EVERYONE to see and smell and then when they reply, like you intended for them to, they run off like a little girl and bitch and whine and cry.

When People Are Rude

I replied to all on a recent email string. I've been having a problem with my shoulder and asked for healing vibes. I get a note back from one of the recipients that was rather rude. She said that I was not on her friends list and that if she were on mine to please delete her. Now to my knowledge I've never done ANYTHING to this individual to deserve to be treated so rudely. What would possess someone to act like an ass?

Shamans, Wiccans and Druids...OH MY!

How about just being a plain ol Eclectic Witch...

Instead of labeling yourself to suit your mood why don't you just stick with one path or say what you really are...ECLECTIC! Geeze you change your path like you change your boxer briefs. I bet I've seen you change what your path is THREE TIMES. Native American Shaman, Wiccan and now a Druid it's like spiritual ADHD..You're giving the Goddess and God a headache.

I know we all evolve spiritually. I started out Christo-Pagan… Continue

Singing to the Dawn

I was awakened at 3:30 am by my nephew he needed to talk and called me. After the phone call I knew I would not be able to get back to sleep right away so I surfed the net for a while then decided I might try to go back to bed since I had really only gotten an hour or two sleep before my nephew called me.

So I got back in bed and laid there a while listening to the birds singing in the trees outside my open windows. All the different bird calls sound so beautiful. So beautiful in… Continue
