I'm so glad for daily practice. No matter how overwhelming any day gets, I always get to come back, reset, and return to that little sacred microsecond of bliss that lives between silence and breath. The altar then becomes a living being, held up by my determination to be present with my Holy Nature, even when only for a moment. The mat becomes the throne, held up by my sovereignty. The darkened temple room becomes a chamber, dreaming enchantments while wide awake.

Getting there is the hard part. The commute stalls, groceries await purchase, emails sit unanswered. There are always a million other things we could be doing, "should" be doing. No one is perfect here. I'm certainly not. But every day we get that chance to recommit to ourselves and to our Work in the would. To check our place in it. Are you right where you'd like to be today?

The fountain spills her life-giving waters unceasingly with or without us. The pool fills waiting for bare feet to disrupt it's surface. The cup is held in one hand. Then another. Some days we dare to fill it up, drinking deep as it spills across our heavy cheeks. Some days it's just a sip.

Isn't it amazing that we have that fountain.

Dear moderator of pagan discussion.
I'm a member of the group and I fear we have a troll. Over the past two weeks since he's joined he has berated other members. I see no reprimand toward his ill attempts of personal satisfaction. He has been reported to G+ but since reading the group rules I have seen him in violation of several.
I can understand discussion but when the line of discussion has crossed into outright belittling, calling others out and saying ill of their belief. Tossing out Christianity only to say he isn't but acting of a judge and reprimanding, saying the post they put is highly incorrect. I know social media has flaws but only if it's allowed. I may not interact fully with the group but I have concern because if I post and this man, even blocked, can mock what I share. It is not worth my being involved in this group.
Sincerity,
Raven

Spring has inspired me to offer specials on readings from now until Summer Solstice. Sign up today for a 15 or 30 minute session before I take off to Europe for the start of summer. :)

Update on mom: She's out of surgery and everything went great! Thanks to the 50+ people who sent prayers, spells, galdered the Uruz rune, etc.
So appreciated!

"It is hard to see how much I have grown in my path as well, until I stretch it out and evaluate it from the standpoint of the long and winding path. At face value it doesn't always appear like I have come a long way in this area either. But I know that I have."

Yeeees!

Today over on my Pagan youth Q&A column: Unable to have a sword, athame, or other ritual knife? Here are a few ideas to work around that. 
Help! Mom won\'t let me use a ritual knife. The athame is an important tool in Wicca and witchcraft. Here\'s how you can work around it.

Witches, magicians, light workers, Reiki healers, crystal workers, Somi Pi healers (am I forgetting anyone?)..etc

I've never posted a public healing request but I'm doing so right now. My mom is going in for abdominal surgery tomorrow (May 1). Can you please help send healing and strength, in addition to clarity and resourcefulness to the surgeons? Her name is Carol Salisbury-Branshaw and she is a Sagittarius. The Location is Charlotte-area, NC.

If you need a healing idea, I will galdering and tracing the rune Uruz for strength. Thank you!!

Big news from my org! Pumping 8.5 million into finally making progress for LGBTQ people in the south. Bible belt, here we come!
In a drive to win more rights and protections, gay advocates are setting their sights on Southern and Western states, where the movement’s rapid progress has largely eluded gay men and lesbians.
