From us to you and yours Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.
A of trick I have used for years to keep my guests happier with no cross words between any of them is before you add the cooking sage to anything ask that it is blessed to clear negativity out of everyone who eats it. I actually put a small pinch in every dish that is served. A pinch is not enough to change the flavor of anything but the harmony it brings when the family is gathered is priceless
Definitely don’t mean to sound like your mom here, but…did you get your flu shot last year? Follow-up question: Have you gotten yours this year?

Living with purpose and meaning is a goal that many strive to achieve. However, the motivation for that goal differs. Some people are focused on their current existence, while others believe that positive actions in this world will buy them a ticket to the next one – heaven. This brings us to a question that everyone from religious authority to soul-searching Sally has asked: Does life continue after death?
Here are three reasons to consider that there may be life after death, and three reasons to believe that death is the end of the road.
A Permanent Sleep
What we know, we know
By definition, death is the cessation of life – so by all logic, there is no life after death. In this vein, physics professor Sean Carroll contends that life after death is impossible. While there are many things we don’t know about the world, he says, we do know about the particles that make up the human body – and those don’t go anywhere after the body dies. Because consciousness is part of the physical body, it dies along with the rest of a person. Unlike other uncertainties in life, this concept is relatively straightforward: With death, life ends.
While people may have the sensations of near-death experiences, a group of scientists believes that they aren’t afterlife-related. According to Australian-based neurologist Dr. Cameron Shaw, the tunnel vision some report experiencing after a close encounter with death is a result of the brain failing to receive oxygen, which distorts our perceptions. Other researchers have found elevated levels of CO2 in the bloodstreams of those who had out-of-body sensations – which has been linked to visual hallucinations. Similar to the effect of hallucinogenic drugs, these sensations may be created by the chemical changes happening in a body on the brink of death. Unfortunately, the “white light” some claim to see happens only in our minds: Death, sadly, is what’s at the end of the tunnel.
The side with proof
Proving that life after death is feasible has been faulty, at best. Aside from within our dreams and feelings, we don’t see or hear of anyone who has supposedly passed on to another world. We do, however, see exactly what happens to the human body after it stops working; the process of body decomposition may be a gruesome one, but it is also telling. Archaeologists and coroners will agree on this fact: It doesn’t look like there is life after death.
To a Better Place
A man – who was declared clinically dead for six minutes after drowning – reported on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation that he had a joyful, out-of-body experience in which he could see and hear everything from above while unconscious. In the memoir Dying to be Me, Anita Moorjani describes learning about the cause of her cancer while she was unconscious. Testimonies like these are not uncommon, as studies around the world estimate that these “near-death” experiences are reported by an estimated 200,000 Americans a year.
According to a recent study that lends credence to near-death experiences, even when the brain shows no sign of electrical activity, it’s quite possible that a person can remain conscious. Lead researcher Pim van Lommel of the Hospital Rijnstate in the Netherlands, says that scientists should look beyond molecules and cells when studying consciousness. He asserts in the study that people can be conscious of events taking place around them even if or when they are physically unconscious.
Life is more than just your physical presence; people live on through the imprint they have on others. Personal legacies keep people alive long after their physical bodies
Craft: Witchcraft, Wands and Wild Roses
I love wild roses. One seeded naturally in my back garden and grew along the fence between it and that of the house next door. It was a dog rose, the most abundant wild rose that grows in England.
It has simple, pale pink blooms with five petal as well as sharp thorns along the stems. Although all roses symbolise love, for me the dog rose also symbolises the wildness of nature, which can be both beautiful and cruel. I was pleased that a wild rose was thriving in my garden, I happily let it climb along the fence and I delighted in its brief flowering every summer.
But early this spring my neighbour cut it down. We had had an argument about the fence, which had been damaged in a storm, about who should fix it. After the argument my neighbour spent the day taking down the remaining panels and posts of the fence – and took a machete to my rose that was clinging to it. I didn’t say anything further to the

istant Healing Energy balls are far older than you think. Since the ancient times, humans knew that they don’t just have a physical body, but other frequencies exist within – at the same time.
The Several Bodies we possess
Although many ancient civilisations may have categorised the bodies in a different way they all agree that there is a physical body, a spiritual – energy body (some call it the Astral Body) and the of course the immortal Soul.
The Energy body (aka Astral body) is very sensitive to external (and of course internal) stimuli. While being in a room where something terrible has happened, our Energy Body collects information which affects its “physiology” and therefore it helps us understand what may happened there. The energy of this terrifying room interacts with your energy body and this chill you’re feeling is an actual 6th sense coming from this – much more – sensitive “body”. If for any reason you have to stay in this room the energy of the room will interfere with your energy body’s “homeostasis” and change some of its functions which will ultimately mean – if you don’t do something about it – weakness, energy depletion and sickness.
This does not mean that we should always look for a spiritual reason for our physical body’s illness – always consult with your medical doctor – but it means that witches always act on the energy level too. This was just an example to show you how energy affects your energy and therefore your physical body. You can pay thousands of Dollars to learn about energy healing, reiki and distant healing but really you can start practicing on your own and you will see how much “the energy” can do for you.
Follow these steps to create and send energy balls
Energy transcends time and space. Once you learn how to “send energy” you can do it for healing purposes, or even change the outcome of a future event or even send it to the past. Although the actual past event won’t probably change, the impact will be much better for you. In this article you will learn how to send energy and then modify the energy according to what you want (healing, money, protection, love etc)
Step One – your “Temple”
Set up your sacred space where all the magic will happen. This should be a quiet space where its unlikely to be disturbed. You can use your altar if you like. Wear comfortable loose clothes, remove heavy jewellery – unless they play an important ritual role for you, for example a tiara of the Moon (you can soon buy from our Magical Store).
You may want to lay down or sit comfortable or on a yogi or semi-yogi style (Cernunnos style). Whatever makes you feel better is the best. In this place, you are one with the Cosmos. Take few breaths. Quiet your thoughts, silence your mind, relax your body.
Step Two – making Energy Balls
In order to send the energy you must first gather and concentrate it. To start gathering the energy clap your hands 3-4 times and start rubbing them together horizontally and in a circular mode. Do that for two – three more times.
Doing that you “Activate”
