Molder Of Dreams Guy Doud Comes Home To The Catholic Church
Last night on the Journey Home program, Guy Doud presented his testimony of conversion to Catholicism. He was received into the Church this past Easter. He is a nationally known motivational speaker, 1986 National Teacher of the Year and former Evangelical Free pastor. His tape/CD "Molder of Dreams" has been the most listened to and requested material ever offered by Focus on the Family.

Just this past Sept 12 and 13th "Molder of Dreams" was replayed again on Dr. Dobson's program.

Why did he turn to the Church after being a lifelong evangelical believer? You can hear him tell the story if you to go to the audio archives or you can watch the re-broadcast program this Saturday. But, in a nutshell, it was his desire to see how the early Church worshipped which led to his discovery of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. This led to an insatiable desire to receive Christ as He was received by the early church and continues to be present to this day in the Catholic Church. Guy found the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Confession to be a great aid to his walk with God as I and other converts have found.

Welcome Home Guy! Our prayers are with you as well as the prayers of an unimaginably large and invisible cloud of witnesses!

(If the truth be told, they have been praying for us to come back for a long time now, thanks Mom!)

Whats With The Weird Numbers On The Use Of 93
"Do what thou bag shall be the whole of the law "

On this website I start and end all the posts with the law of Thelema. At the beginning I post '"do what thou bag..."' and at the end '"love is the law..."'.But for accidental news item, as well as for the explanation fields i use the production 93. I possess been asked two times in the scamper few weeks so Possibly i obligation explain why 93 is used amid thelemites as an close wanted (IF YOU HAVEN'T EARLIER THAN GOOGLED IT). The production 93 is smoothly used as a sack form of the law of thelema which is a repetitive wanted amid Thelemites. This is '"Do what thou bag shall be the whole of the law"'. 93 is the production exploitation of the word thelema meaning moral fiber. The repetitive finish is pet is the law, love under moral fiber. All-around impart are two words with the in bad condition of 93, thelema (REQUEST) and agape (BELOVED) as a result 93/93. 93 is in addition sometimes used as a vocal wanted. Thelema is smoothly referred to as the 93 gust as Aiwass, Crowleys far ahead protector angel's name in addition enumerates to 93. It becomes a bit of a cultural thing though for firm, ritual and official stuff the longform is used. It in addition allows the sneaking of such a wanted in the sphere of less esoteric news item and opens the big business of 'what's the 93 for?' I can as well as explain if club are analytical defective cramming the law in word down their throats.So in holder you've been one of ancestors wondering, thats why!

"Beloved is the law, love under moral fiber"

Types Of Meditation No Head Stands Or Crossed Legs For Me
by jason.hoang

Article by Suzanne Early


There are various types of meditation, from meditation for beginners, through to free guided meditation and self meditation. Ahhh, if only I could get the internal chattering to stop and both eyes to stay shut!Some types of meditation are silent, some are accompanied with a sound like OOOOMMMMM, to help focus your mind and breath, so it doesn't wonder off to compile your grocery list! I have tried learning meditation but didn't have much luck, for this very reason. It is very hard to quieten the mind and my mental grocery list ended up being quite long!

Learning meditation is a very healthy thing to do. Your mind eventually enjoys switching off and your body can relax, taking some time out to rest and heal. There are different types of meditation positions you can use. Some sit on the floor or use a meditation chair, with back straight and feet on the floor. Others lay down to do their meditation exercises...sometimes with a meditation timer, so they don't nod off for hours - now there is a tempting thought!Visualisation is also popular. Women visualise themselves as well and healthy. Whilst doing their meditation exercises, they see themselves in their mind as complete and with great health and happiness. So how does this relate to symptoms of breast cancer? By learning meditation, it allows your body and mind to slow down and feel the moment, tuning into your health. Mindful meditation allows you to meditate, yet be fully aware of what is around you. Deep and spiritual meditation or massage, is thought to help bring you into balance, boasting your immune system and helping with fatigue and emotional moods that may come with breast cancer.

My meditation tips would be to lock the door, turn off chattering radios and tv's, wear loose clothing, be in a place you feel relaxed to be in, put your meditation timer on, and whilst doing deep belly breaths, repeat a phrase or word to help prevent your brain from wondering off. Choose one of your favourite meditation positions, play some quiet ! gentle m usic if you prefer, and try very hard to not compile your mental grocery list! About the Author

BAWA ON ALTERNATIVES FOR BOOZING


A talk by Khurshed Batliwala, director of World Alliance for Youth Empowerment on alcohol and addiction and how to come out of it. With a post graduate in Mathematics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, Khurshed Batliwala, or Bawa as he is fondly known (a nick name that has stuck from his IIT days) is an extraordinary personality. In his own words, he decided it was better to teach people meditation and make them happy rather than teach them mathematics and make them miserable and thus chose the unconventional and challenging career path as a faculty member of the Art of Living, sharing the vision of its founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, which is to see a smile on every face on the planet.

BALSAMIC MOON: The ending of one cycle and the beginning of another. Keywords for the Balsamic phase are: transition, release, transformation, renewal, purity. It is the phase in a cycle when you must let go of everything that you been working on that does not deal with current cycle issues. During this phase you reflect on the passing cycle and prepare for the new. Trust in renewal. It is important to separate from others now so that you can clear the intellect of negativity. LET GO. Become still and meditate.

[From: http://www.zodiacarts.com/Calendar.shtml ]

This is Woden's Day - Wednesday - Mercury Day, the day of Communication and Connection... the magickal energies today are strong for honoring your ancestors. Can you think of ways to do this?

Here are some suggestions for honoring your ancestors this Samhain - you could start preparing these ideas today.... Communication day.

We all have ancestors, some living, most of them have passed on. The Reformed Druids of North America (RDNA) does not have any specific traditions on revering ancestors, although most of the other modern Druid groups have incorporated this concept, which is common among Nature and folk-based religions. In a sense, many believe ancestors are the best intermediaries of the living with the deities. Who cares about you more than those who raised you and your parents and your parents' parents?

Traditionally Samhain was about honoring returning (good) spirits who came back for these few nights, and of course, keeping out the bad ones who also might show up. We tend to focus on the bad ones now and dwell on the frightening aspect of death. However, how often do you talk to your children about welcoming back grandpa or Aunt Myrtle? The idea that good returns too, that is can be a very comforting concept for children. Rather than horror flicks, why not watch a movie of a sad, tragic death story and talk with kids about it. Fluke, the movie of a father reincarnated as a dog, trying to rejoin the family, is very touching.

Have a home altar: decorate it with family photos, as many as you can dig up, some safe candles or incense (watch the smoke detector). If you a family tree picture, you can place it there for this special time of the year. Add postcards, flags, and other symbols of the country (ies) your ancestors come from. If you are lucky enough to live near where your family members are buried make grave rubbings as well and add some of them to the altar. Visit the altar once a often during this time in the Wiccan Wheel of the Year.. Come by and talk to the spirits once in a while about hard things in your life and ask for advice and meditate there. You might assign someone in the family, perhaps even a child to maintaining the shrine and dust it, replace candles, etc. for a new Samhain time activity. In this case, a cluttered altar is perfectly acceptable -- after all, each of us is a blend of many different people and cultures.

Have a meal standing by to eat with the ritual. Include lots of dark bread, apples, fall vegetables, and a jug of cider or wine. Set your dinner table, with a place for each family member, and one extra plate for the ancestors. You may want to bake some Soul Cakes.

If your family has household guardians, include statues or masks of them on your altar. Finally, if a relative has died this year, place a candle for them on the altar. Light candles for other relatives, and as you do so, say the person's name aloud. It's a good idea to use tealights for this, particularly if you have a lot of relatives to honor. Once all the candles have been lit, the entire family should circle the altar. The oldest adult present leads the ritual. Say:

This is the night when the gateway between


our world and the spirit world is thinnest.

Tonight is a night to call out those who came before us.

Tonight we honor our ancestors.

Spirits of our ancestors, we call to you,

and we welcome you to join us for this night.

We know you watch over us always,

protecting us and guiding us,

and tonight we thank you.

We invite you to join us and share our meal.

The oldest family member then serves everyone else a helping of whatever dishes have been prepared, except for the wine or cider. A serving of each food goes on the ancestors' plate before the other family members recieve it. During the meal, share stories of ancestors who are no longer among the living -- this is the time to remember Grandpa's war stories he told you as a child, tell about when Aunt Millie used salt instead of sugar in the cake, or reminisce about summers spent at the family homestead in the mountains.

When everyone has finished eating, clear away all the dishes, except for the ancestors' plate. Pour the cider or wine in a cup, and pass it around the circle (it should end at the ancestor's place). As each person recieves the cup, they recite their genealogy, like so:

I am Susan, daughter of Joyce, the daughter of Malcolm, son of Jonathan...

and so forth. Feel free to add in place names if you like, but be sure to include at least one generation that is deceased. For younger family members, you may wish to have them only recite back to their grandparents, just because otherwise they can get confused.

Go back as many generations as you can, or (in the case of people who have done a lot of genealogy research) as many as you can remember. You may be able to trace your family back to William the Conqueror, but that doesn't mean you have it memorized. After each person recites their ancestry, they drink from the cider cup and pass it to the next person.

A quick note here -- many people are adopted. If you are one them, you are fortunate enough to be able to choose whether you wish to honor your adoptive family, your biological family, or a combination of the two. If you don't know the names of your birth parents or their ancestry, there's nothing wrong with saying, "Daughter of a family unknown." It's entirely up to you. The spirits of your ancestors know who you are, even if you don't know them yet.

After the cup has made its way around the table, place it in front of the ancestors' plate. This time, a younger person in the family takes over, saying:

This is the cup of remembrance.

We remember all of you.

You are dead but never forgotten,

and you live on within us.

Take some time to meditate on the value of family, how fortunate we are to be able to know the connections of kin and clan, and the value of heritage. If your family has a tradition of music or folktales, share those as a way to wrap up the ritual. Otherwise, allow the candles to burn out on their own. Leave the plate and cup on the altar overnight.

Question For Witchy Friends

question for witchy friends:

soror-dxm:

I'm not into witchcraft. At all. I am now and forever a ceremonial magician. I used to scoff at the idea of witchcraft but now I'm just puzzled.

I see all of these spells and recipes for powders, etc, and can't help but wonder: does that stuff actually work? I mean, you go out...

I can't find your original post DXM so I am bouncing off Abwatts.

5 ways of witchcraft, abridged and early in the morning.

SYMPATHETIC aka as above so below. Every aspect of the universe is represented in every other aspect. The true circle is your reach, the light of your fire, as far as you can see, the horison or as far as you can imagine. The jar becomes the target entity or situation and what you put in it (and other actions) change that event/entity.

ENERGY. Change is contagious, all energy causes change in all other energy and the ripples of change continue forever long after the original signal dies out. There are energies we can't yet measure and are unaware of, dimensions we don't have access to consciously. Oh yeah, vibrating names.

HEADOLOGY. Simplified this targets the self or those who know and accept/fear your witchcraft. Tell someone they are sick enough times and they will become sick, let someone know they have pissed a witch off and they create their own bad luck etc. How many changes can be made in a mundane manner by a person unconsciously working for your 'spell?'

THEISTIC. Witches work with entities, sometimes. Sometimes the entites get involved regardless of whether they have been called upon.

REALITY/AWARENESS. We create everything anyway, possibly we are alone and create others and possibly others are also playing this game. If there are others then there are rules. Perhaps witchcraft is a way around those rules, perhaps it is an access to the part of us that is organising this whole hooha. You can't prove that I am not locked in a cell dreaming this all, I just have to accept what I experience. I experience change when I stick things in a mason jar.

On The Eve Of Imbolccandlemas

On The Eve Of Imbolccandlemas
Here we are on the eve of Candlemas (or Imbolc). Strange to relate, this festival day in the depths of winter celebrates light and warmth, the stirring of green things within the earth, the burgeoning of new life and the beginning of springtime. Once called "Bride's day", the day is consecrated to Brigid, a deity of fire, creativity, wisdom, eloquence and superb craftsmanship. She is patroness of the forge and smithy, poetry and the healing arts, particularly midwifery. Hers are the candle, the lantern, the hearth and the forge, and all light is her special province.

We are made of light ourselves, and that makes us Brigid's children - creatures forged from the dust of stars which once lighted the heavens and ceased to exist long ago. Within our cells are encoded the wisdoms of the ancient earth and all its cultures, the star knowledge of unknown constellations and "The Big Bang" which created not just our own precious world, but the whole cosmic sea in which it floats.

The stardust of which we are made has spontaneously assembled into diverse life forms over and over again, lived and expired, then dissolved back into the stream of being. In our time, "we" have been many things, worn many shapes and answered to many names. In this lifetime I exist as an eccentric, tatterdemalion, and perhaps unique collection of wandering molecules called Catherine or Cate, but in previous appearances I was someone or something completely different. Buddhist teacher, thinker, activist and deep ecologist Joanna Macy says that since every particle in our being goes back to the first flaring of space and time, we are as old as the universe itself, about fifteen billion years. In other words, we are the universe, and it is us.

Here is the light-filled Blessing for Hearth-Keepers from The Little Book of Celtic Blessings by Caitlin Matthews. I recite it every year on the eve of Imbolc as I light candles and will be doing it again in a few minutes. Merry Imbolc to you and your clan. Happy Candlemas and Happy Brigid's Day too. May the blessings of Light be yours.

Brighid of the Mantle, encompass us

Lady of the Lambs, protect us,

Keeper of the Hearth, kindle us

Beneath your mantle, gather us

And restore us to memory


Mothers of our mother

Foremothers strong


Guide our hands in yours

Remind us how


To kindle the hearth

To keep it bright


To preserve the flame

Your hands upon ours


Our hands within yours

To kindle the light


Both day and night

The Mantle of Brighid about us,

The Memory of Brighid within us


The Protection of Brighid keeping us

From harm, from ignorance, from heartlessness

This day and night,

From dawn till dark

From dark till dawn.
