My stepmom’s mom would always carry around an amethyst wand with her. She gave it to my stepmom when she died, and she’s kept it with her ever since. Today it snapped in half, and she’s trying to figure out what it could mean, if anything.

" Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched. "
ichirousnpv: I have been seeing a lot of amazing things happening all around me lately. One more for the list is this blog! There is strength in asking and patience in working with others to get the answers we all desire. Lovely seeing the fellowship gather for the greater good. Emily, I know it can be trying being solitary in some of the most important discoveries in ones journey. Keep on believing never stop forgiving. This message is only purposed to reaffirm what we all know, somewhere. <3

Thank you for your lovely words! This is something everyone can take from, not just pagans. Blessed be )O(

I am the Eternal Mother. My physical body is the body of Mother Earth. My blood is found in the Mother’s waters. The curves of my body are valleys, hills, plateaus, and mountains. My rhythmic breath is air. My all-consuming eroticism is fire. My all-knowing, eternal spirit is ether.

Connect to the Self. Connect to the Divine. I love you.

Anonymous: So I recently decided to start meditating but anytime I try to meditate I feel as if someone is watching me. I can't tell if it's just me being paranoid, or if there is something there, but any help would be appreciated.

Hello! I’ve had this feeling before, right when I started meditating. It could be that as you’re letting your mind wander, your mind could be playing tricks on you. I told my mom about it and she burned incense the next day, something she does monthly, and it really helps with just getting rid of the negative energies, and just setting your home to a balance. Try burning some incense while meditating, play some light music, and think positively. Best of luck!
