We Are So “Wicked Good”

Cupcakes and pies in a jar? Absolutely, and they are so "wicked good." In 2010, the mother-daughter duo, Tracey Noonan and Danielle Vilagie went from spending quality time at the local cake-decorating class to launching a cupcake business in one short year. As the reputation of their product grew, they found themselves getting hundreds of … Continue reading We Are So “Wicked Good”

A Bardic Sigil Technique

The Druid's Garden

Sigil creation in progress!

I open up a sacred grove with intention.  After opening the grove, I sit for a few moments, breathing deeply and centering myself.  When ready, I pick up the chalk pastel and I allow the chalk pastel to move across the page, closing my eyes at points, emphasizing lines at points, and letting me be in the flow of the moment.  I keep refining the design, moving pieces of it to new areas of the paper.  I don’t focus too much, paying attention instead to my overall intention: a specific land healing sigil, a sigil that will link different sacred sites I’m working on and work with ley line energy on the landscape. After a number of versions, the sigil seems complete, and I work to transfer it to a wooden round–the process of transfer allowing it to undergo yet another, final, revision.  In today’s post…

I love the scent of evergreens… perhaps this is why I walk so often in the nearby forests. In winter, I like to bring those scents indoors to freshen up the indoor air — especially if it’s just too cold to throw open the windows.

So, each year I make a Solstice/Christmas essential oil blend for diffusing and reminding me — on those days I can’t get outside or bring the outside indoors— of the beautiful and healing fragrance of the boreal forest. I normally add a touch of spicy oils that I associate with our Solstice celebrations, such as orange and cinnamon.

This year, I changed up the scent just a little… adding in a touch of Frankincense essential oil (one of my favourites), a reminder of the coming sacred time that some of us celebrate as Christmas or Yule, and others as…

Seasonal Magic

‘Twas the dark before Solstice when all through the eaves rose the steam of pine honey, cinnamon and teas. The herb bundles were hung by the rafters with care each gathered with gratitude, deep reverence, and prayer.
