Thank you, Santa Muerte

  One member of my spiritual court is La Santisima Muerte, “Most Holy Death”. While she frequently helps me with a great many things, granting various requests for myself and my patrons, one thing She typically does not do is “talk” to me. I don’t ever hear audible voices from Spirits, personally. For most conjure practitioners, when they “talk”, it’s a type of telepathy that is unmistakable. You have a “thought” that Read More

It’s Possible

  Some people I’ve talked to know that I’m a coach, yet they couldn’t quite wrap their heads around what that is, because of a lack of a frame of reference. Everyone is familiar with what a sports coach is… they train you in how to be better at basketball, soccer, swimming or football. Unfortunately, most people are still not familiar with the idea of a personal coach. I hesitate to say Read More

Only Quality People

  Most people’s lives are a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group. –Tony Robbins     To achieve whatever we’re after, we’re going to have to be constantly engaged in the pursuit of our chosen goal. That means we’ll need to be accountable to someone other than ourselves. How do we achieve accountability and who do we choose to be accountable to? Just remember OQP… Only Quality People. If you’re Read More

The Pressure Cooker

  People have a tendency to get caught up in The Pressure Cooker. It can be described like this: 1. The situation gets worse and worse until you feel that you can’t go on. You know something must change. The pressure builds up to unbearable levels. 2. You hit rock bottom. You reach out for help and you get much needed guidance. You begin to take action. 3. Your action produces some Read More

Medicine Bottle Spells

  A traditional type of Hoodoo spell is the medicine bottle. You can find classic, antique medicine bottles online in the usual places, like Etsy, Amazon, Ebay, etc. However, it isn’t necessary to spend $5-20 on a really cool bottle. You can, if you want to but you don’t need anything special for this.   The basic, plastic bottles that you get from any Rite Aid, Walgreen’s or any other pharmacy will Read More

It’s Called A Reading For A Good Reason

It’s Called A Reading For A Good Reason   Thoughts on the  art and science of divination   It’s a funny business, life. Sometimes we have all the wrong ideas about something and it turns out just fine, anyway. Sometimes those wrong ideas lead us to disaster. Other times we did everything right and it still turned out badly, no fault of our own. Luckily, we can sometimes do everything right and have Read More

Cleansing with Elemental Fire

  Anyone who has done any serious magickal work knows that if you do any work on the astral at all, then every once in a while, you’re going to attract a certain amount of psychic sludge. The Elements get imbalanced, due to focussing on a single Element. When you do ritual, you light up on the astral plane. Doing white light work? Intense meditation? Doing pentagram rituals or casting circles? Honoring Read More

Weird Science

I agree with this statement: “If you’ve got a religious belief that withers in the face of observations of the natural world, you ought to rethink your beliefs — rethinking the world isn’t an option. -PZ Myers, biology professor (b. 9 Mar 1957)” People might wonder why I would agree with this quote, being that I am an occultist. To me, Spirits and magick are perfectly in tune with the natural world. Read More
