The Mystery of the Anunnaki - Are We Descendants of an Alien Race?

For many years, I have heard stories about an alien race descending to Earth hundreds of thousands of years ago, as I am sure you have...and I was of mixed opinion on the subject. In fact, I might have even rolled my eyes a little. But I was younger then, and rather ambiguous on the subject of aliens. Having said that, I now wonder myself if this is true - and wanted to share it with you so that you might wonder, too.

"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came into the daughters of men and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." Genesis 6:4

As the story goes, approximately 450,000 years ago, a planet outside of our own solar system known as Nibiru or Planet X, 'died' or suffered a grave misfortune which forced its inhabitants to flee for their very lives. One might feel some empathy for these guys, until the following is revealed: this was a race of supremely intelligent 'super-beings' who dabbled in bio-medical, genetic and technological mysteries and who, despite their physical "golden Nordic' beauty and impressive (giant) height, were reputed to have been excessively arrogant, tyrannical, cannibalistic. Their eventual reputation could be described in one word: evil.

Due to their advanced technological knowledge, these beings were successful in escaping their doomed planet aboard several spacecrafts and set out to establish colonies on suitable planets, including our own and Mars (which is supposedly evidenced by the D&M pyramid). In the event, the Anunnaki overpowered the existing earthlings, or apemen, enslaved them and used them as subjects in their ongoing genetic experiments...thus altering the state of man while also creating more slaves.

At some point, this race was forced to flee Earth as well -- the reasons cited vary -- but they came back, albeit many years later, at which time they were appalled at the advanced stage of culture and society and the success of the 'Remnants': the 'lesser', half-breed Anunnaki who had been left behind.

Determined to re-establish their supremacy and hold over Earth and her inhabitants, it is suggested that by using sound technology, the Anunnaki caused massive flooding, thereby destroying many developed cities and towns and leaving only massive architectural monuments like the Sphinx and the pyramids relatively intact. Fearful that pockets of Remnant rebellions (like the Maya, Inca, Aztec and Egyptian cultures) would grow into overwhelming opposition, the Anunnaki quickly chose a new stronghold into which they poured all of their knowledge and technology. This chosen place was Sumeria (ironically, the birthplace of my own study of the ancient art of Chaldean numerology), which, when translated, refers to the 'land of the (local, noble) lords'. The 'lords'? How curious is that?

This theory may seem outlandish to some, but it does seem to explain a lot. If it is simply a bunch of malarkey, we are left with the same old questions and a few new ones.

Why is it that ancient people had such a fixation on those who descended from the heavens, or the stars...and viewed them as gods? Why do many ancient inscriptions depict helicopter-type spacecraft and large males with wings or helmets? Does the genetic manipulation of the Anunnaki explain the half-man, half-beast monstrosities of old mythology? And how the heck DID they move those tonnes of rock to build the pyramids? Stonehedge? Easter Island? Why can we not duplicate the process even TODAY? Exactly how were the Nazca Lines formed when humans were not yet airborne and could not even see what they were doing? And what was the point of it all?

How is it that the Sumerians, while being recognized as the first 'civilization', were so advanced? Aren't first civilizations usually fairly simple and only progress after many hundreds of years? Why is it, then, that Sumeria is acknowledged as the rather sudden and unexpected birthplace of advanced language, numbers, geometry, mathematics, astrology, law, usury/monetary, culinary, medical, homeopathy, art and social structures? How'd that happen?

Why is the name, Anunnaki, of Sumerian origin? And does anyone else find it odd that the translation is 'those who came down from heaven to earth'? And why is a derivative of the word, along with a description, mentioned in the bible?

"And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come out of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers and so we were in their sight." Numbers 13:33.

If we accept this story as true, then the next conclusion would have to be that there are direct and indirect Anunnaki descendants all over the Earth! And that some would be in positions of ultimate control. Perhaps they are awaiting the return of their masters while facilitating the introduction of the 'New World Order' as some believe...I do find it curious and slightly ominous that many presidents, including Bush and Obama, as well as high powered politicians the world over now use the term casually and often: what was once viewed as a threat is gradually becoming integrated into the human psyche.

If it is true, you might be an alien. Heck, I might be an alien! Hmm. That would explain a lot, too.

The Prophecy Of The Anunnaki

Life is speeding up and things are changing. We're getting close to the Event Horizon. What is that you may ask? The Event is when time will change and reality will also. This was prophesized a long time ago. I want us to be ready for whatever. This is the calendar given by the Xi people also known as the Olmec. They are the individuals that came to America 5,000 years ago, even earlier but this is when they laid the foundation for the culture that would become known as the Mayans. What they taught to the Mayans were the initiation into the Serpent Cult or the Mystery School of Old.

They taught the Mayans how to read the knowledge of the Sun, Moon and Stars. With this erudition the Xi people from West Africa by way of Nubia, gave the Mayans the calendar with the starting date of 3113 B.C. And the end date of 2012. This is known as the 5th Age or the Age of the 5th Sun. This is symbolic for the Dawn of the Ages. To put it in another way, "the end of the end." Not the end of the world but the end of the age. Let me break it down to you like this. We have 12 zodiac signs each, 1 for the 12 months of the year. These 12 zodiac signs corresponds to 12 constellations in the sky. Each of these 12 constellations have a certain time allotted to it. The time allotted to them is 2,160 years each. So, 2000 years ago started the beginning of the Age of Pisces. What is Pisces? The two fishes. So what does that mean?

Pisces as you may know is the start of Christianity. The start of the story of Jesus who is the symbol of the fish. Jesus is the fisher of men, he fed 5,000 people with fish, most of his gang were fishermen. So we can see that we are dealing with mythology here. Right now is the time to get your mind ready for the new awakening. It is not about Jesus anymore. He served his purpose. The time now is for you to get ready for the new epoch.

The Age of Aquarius. This is the sign of the water bearer. In ancient times water was always symbolic of spirit because you could feel it but at the same time it is invisible. What we see now is that Aquarius is the man holding a pitcher of water. What that is saying, is that the Son of God or Sons of God, are about to pour the Holy water over the head of the Righteous Ones, "the Anointing". This is the time of the spiritual awakening of the sleeping giant. Who is the sleeping giant? It is the descendants of those who have been fighting for years to overcome the brutality inflicted upon them. When will this happen? It will happen December 21, 2012. This is the date that all the planets will align to the center of the Milky Way.

What is the Milky Way and what is the significance of the planets aligning? The planets are the chakras of God force. The Lotus Chakra or highest Chakra is the Sun symbolically but beyond the Sun, is the opening to other dimensions. That is the Milky Way and the reason why it is so bright. Within the Milky Way is a gateway to the higher dimensions. Right now that portal or dimension has been locked and guarded by Arch Angels (A-nun-na-ki) to keep the reptilian (aliens) from flying back to the constellation Draco, their home star system.

In the Bible it said that Michael and the Dragon went to war and that Michael won and the Dragon and his angels (aliens) were cast to the Earth never to ascend to Heaven again. Why you may ask? It is because the Draconians (Dracula= vampires) were being disagreeable to the Cosmic laws of nature. They were pirates in outer space. They landed on planets and interfered with evolution, created monsters, went against the laws of nature, murdered and killed whenever they chose and they broke interstellar treaties. So their punishment was to be cast into the underworld (Tartarus) 2 Peter2:4. Where is the underworld? The underworld is at the center of the Earth. They were driven into the navel of the Earth right after the Flood. They had corrupted the Earth and God's people so much that God sent the angel's to lock them underground. The Earth was then configured in such a way as to keep them from coming out.

Books of Magic - Real Or Fake?

Every occultist and magic practitioner owns few books of magic. Are these real or not? Do they really contains magical knowledge, or is this just child play? As experienced occult explorer, I will answer all the questions in this article.

First of all, there are many types of books of magic. The oldest type is called "grimoires" - those are ancient and Medieval books written hundreds of years ago, containing occult knowledge - both theory and practice. And yes, this includes practical spellcasting and rites (rituals). Most people who would stumbled upon these books would have no idea what they're talking about. These are real books of magic, they need to be studied, and understood before the knowledge inside them will be used for magical practices.

Another type of magic books is much more modern - these are guidebooks and manuals written since 1960s. They're written by well respected authors, and they contain nearly the very same knowledge as grimoires. The knowledge need to be studied and understood before it can be applied. These are good books as well.

Third type is quite simple - modern books that do not share any useful knowledge. Many books about New Age philosophies applies here, as well as lot of books about magic practices that share spells, charms and very "new age" point of view upon the occult. They are written only for money, and they can't really help anyone understand what magic really is. Because of this, they're not worth anything - but still can be read in order to gain small pieces of knowledge.

And finally, fourth type of magic books. Faked books, like Necronomicon, famous book of black magic created by H. P. Lovecraft - it's nothing more than paranormal fiction. But there are also many books, very old and very young, that were just faked - and they contain no practical knowledge. People might have wrote them in order to make money, perhaps.

Summary is simple. Some books of magic do work - I mean, they contain very real and very useful knowledge. Some are written only for money and they share no useful knowledge, they're real but the knowledge inside them is not. If you would like to study the occult, you need to be quite careful when choosing your books. I might suggest starting from old grimoires, but be aware here as well - it doesn't mean that if the book is old, it's good. It might be faked.

So, last tip? Read opinions about the book you're thinking about reading, see if it's worth it.

The Basics of Paranormal Investigation

The word paranormal comes from the words "para" meaning beyond, and normal. So the term paranormal really means something that is beyond the normal scope of science or being beyond a scientific explanation. According to the Journal of Parapsychology, the term paranormal describes "any phenomenon that in one or more respects exceeds the limits of what is deemed physically possible according to current scientific assumptions."

Ghosts generate strong electro-magnetic fields. These fields cause disruptions in the magnetic field of a location which makes it detectable by both specialized equipment and psychics. Ghost hunters use many different types of equipment to detect an paranormal phenomena. A 35mm or digital camera is probably the easiest and least expensive way to begin. Pictures, whether digital or recorded on film have the ability to capture paranormal activity that is usually invisible to the naked eye. In addition to a camera, it's important to have a flashlight since most paranormal investigations will be in dark places like cemeteries, basements, attics, or old buildings. Also, most investigations occur between 9pm and 6am when it's dark. This is believed to be the best time to record paranormal activity. Along with the flashlight you'll need extra batteries, since batteries will sometimes mysteriously lost all their charge during paranormal investigations, literally leaving you in the dark.

Once you have these basic items, you're ready to start exploring the world of paranormal investigation. Some important things to remember are: never go on an investigation alone, and be respectful of the of the people, places and situations you encounter.

The first step in an investigation is selecting the place you're going to investigate. Once you choose a location, be sure to get permission to access the property to ensure you won't get into any trouble for trespassing. It's also very important to do some research on the location before you go out and physically investigate it. You can go to the library and look up old newspapers, visit the local historical society to find out about the history of the place and if anything strange has happened there, and of course talk with the owner of the property.

Once you get all your data collected you have to analyze it. Every picture, video, audio recording is reviewed to look for any sign of a haunting. When doing your analysis, be sure to be skeptical. Make sure you rule out any explainable causes for anything odd that may show up. Check for mirrors, shadows, light sources or anything else that may cause something weird to be seen or heard in your collected data. Most of the time, the things you initially detected during your investigation will have real world explanations as opposed to supernatural ones. It's important to make sure your evidence will stand up to any scrutiny by eliminating any other explanations. This will give your data more credibility.

Once you complete your analysis, you need to present your findings property owner. At this point you would recommend whether the owner needs to seek additional help, such a having the property blessed or if there is really nothing that needs to be or even can be done. Sometimes just having someone investigate the place and find nothing can help ease the mind of the person experiencing the haunting.

Top Tips on Choosing Ghost Investigators for a Home Ghost Study

If you believe that your house is haunted, it is important to know how to choose ghost investigators for a home ghost study. Until recently, many individuals that experienced unusual phenomenon within their homes kept their suspicion to themselves. However, in recent years, many paranormal shows and books have emerged. An example of this type of media is the Ghost Hunters TV show. As a result of this exposure to paranormal related events, many individuals are now becoming more comfortable in discussing the possibility that they may be living in a haunted house. In order to confirm that you are being subjected to a true haunting, it is important to bring in paranormal investigators. In this guide, you will learn the top tips on choosing ghost investigators for a home ghost study.

Ghost investigators that research homes that are believed to be haunted typically come in, gather as much information as possible as it pertains to the unusual phenomenon that is occurring throughout the home, and then uses a wide array of ghost hunting equipment in order to debunk or prove that ghosts do exist within the structure that they are investigating. Typically, these individuals have a high level of training when it comes to identifying and working directly with the paranormal. It is important to choose ghost investigators that are highly trained and educated in the paranormal. It is also important to choose a team that is trustworthy. The following steps outline the top tips on choosing ghost investigators for a home ghost study:

1. When researching paranormal investigators, it is important to ensure that you learn as much as you possibly can about their experience, education, and any credentials that they possess in psychology and/or paranormal studies. There are many individuals that advertise themselves as a paranormal investigator, but they are not. It is essential to ensure that you are hiring an expert.

2. Next, it is important to ensure that the ghost investigators that you hire are not criminals. These individuals will be spending a lot of time in your home, so you will want to ensure that they are trustworthy. The most effective means of doing this is to conduct a criminal background check on everyone that is considered to be part of the time. If you are unable to do this, you will want to ask the team that you are interested in to provide you with a notarized police clearance letter stating that they have no criminal background with that department.

3. There are many ghost investigators that advertise the fact that integrate magic practices within their investigations. These individuals may claim to be Wiccan, Pagan, or advertise that they closely associate themselves with the occult. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with an individual choosing which type of religious beliefs that they possess, it is important to ensure that they are not pushing those beliefs on you. The rituals and other activities that they engage in as far as their religious practices should be left behind when they initiate a paranormal investigation.

4. Individuals that conduct home ghost studies typically do not charge for their services. It is both a hobby and a passion to conduct paranormal investigations for the person that considers themselves a ghost hunter. If the team or teams that you are researching require a payment for their services, it is advised that you elect to not work with that particular team. It is important to realize, however, that there is a certain amount of costs when it comes to ghost hunting. Most research teams benefit by receiving donations for their investigations. This means that you should offer the team a tip for their services.

5. When searching for ghost investigators, it is important to ensure that you learn as much as you are able to about the team. You should study any type of website or book that is associated with the team. You should also ensure that you have solid contact information such as an email, a physical address, and even a telephone number.

As you can see, there are many considerations that should be made when it comes to researching paranormal investigation teams that will conduct a ghost study in your home. You must ensure that your home is safe, you are safe, and that anyone in the house apart from yourself is safe. You will also want to ensure that the investigator is qualified to conduct the investigation. By requesting professionals, you can rest assured that a comprehensive investigation will take place. This investigation will assist in establishing that there is proof of ghosts, attempt to debunk the apparent hauntings, or validate that the home is haunted to one degree or another. If you want only the best ghost investigators for your home ghost study, it is important to integrate these tips so that you are able to choose the best.

Visitors in Our Deepest Oceans - Underwater Alien Civilizations Beneath the Oceans of Earth

We are surrounded by water, two third of our planet is water and amazingly we know more about the sun and the distant stars than what we know about our planet's depths. So what mysteries does our planet's oceans hold is left to our imagination and our deepest fears, because we always fear what we don't know. The ocean is so vast that anything can be lurking down there, creatures from our distant past once thought to be extinct, giant monsters from the deep or even alien civilizations from another world hundreds of years more technologically advance than we are.

As far fetch as the above statement might sound there are numerous witnesses that have reported Un-identified Submerge Objects or U.S.O., in the areas near the Bermuda triangle and the Caribbean. A U.S.O. is basically a U.F.O. under water; when it surfaced out of the water it becomes a U.F.O. an unidentified flying object. One location on the Caribbean that can be considered a U.S.O. hot spot is the island of Puerto Rico, specially the southwest part of the island. Where many witnesses have allegedly seen mysterious space craft's getting in and out of a lake called "Cartagena" lagoon in the municipality of "Hormigueros" Puerto Rico. Reports of mysterious vessels getting out of the water and into space miles away at the municipality of Lajas Puerto Rico can suggest a possible ancient underground river that connects the two towns underground and allows those luminous spacecraft to pass unseen and undetected by us. It is recorded on Christopher Columbus journal just days before discovering America the unfamiliar sitting of an underwater luminous ball that was following the ship as it navigates the Atlantic on its way to the new world. The explorer reported seeing that same ball of light getting out of the water, hovering for a moment and then blasting into space, which in that time period rules out the possibility of a comet, an airplane or a submarine.

Submarine missions carried out by the navy have reported detecting objects moving at extraordinary speeds very close to them that did not match the characteristics of any animal or any human made underwater vessel. Technologically speaking it takes much more energy to move a vessel under water than what it takes to move one on the air because of the water resistance, so whatever they detected was not human or made with technology of this planet.

Another major area of the world where countless U.S.O. sittings have taken place is the Asian version of the Bermuda triangle, the dragon's triangle. The dragon's triangle is located at the Philippine Sea off the eastern coast of china and is as infamous as its American cousin for vanishing ships and airplanes, but the dragon's triangle is most notorious for its U.S.O. sittings and encounters. For centuries Asian cultures have many times reported bright lights coming out of the water and heading into space or witness seeing cigar shape like objects coming at high speeds from the sky at night and plunging into the ocean and never coming out again. With all these speculations it's not hard to imagine the possibility of extraterrestrial cities embedded on the ocean floor, after all we still have a lot to learn from our own home world. If we were to explore an extraterrestrial species from up close the best way to do so would be to hide on a hazardous environment that they could not reach because they are not entirely technologically prepare for it. Interesting enough the dragon's triangle is located on the region of the Pacific Ocean believed to be the deepest part of the planet near where the Mariana trenches reside, a part of earth still virgin from human exploration.

We are used to believing that visitors from the stars come from galaxies many light years away. But what if they came to our planet a long time ago and stayed here ever since, what if they are keeping a close eye on us from our own earthling waters or using our planet as a temporary spot for other more distant destinations in the un-explored universe.

A K-II Meter Is an Essential Piece of Ghost Hunting Equipment

If you are interested in becoming a ghost hunter, it is important to know that the K-II meter is an essential piece as far as ghost hunting equipment is concerned. This type of meter is a specially designed tool that assists in picking up on special fields that are identified as Electromagnetic Fields. Many ghost investigators refer to this type of field as "EMF". The K-II meter is often called "K2". It is a small electronic device that can be held and successfully locates various types of sources of energy. If you are interested in conducting a ghost study, this tool could be the one piece of equipment that could assist you in establishing proof of real ghosts.

There are several types of ghosts. As a beginning ghost hunter, you will learn about residual spirits, intelligent ghosts, and even demonic hauntings. All ghosts have unique characteristics, but they all have one thing in common - they seem to emit a large amount of energy. As a matter of fact, most ghost investigators claim that spirits are nothing more than energy. Unfortunately, it is often challenging for people to pick up on this energy without the assistance of special tools. This is where the K-II meter comes into play. By using this particular type of ghost hunting equipment, you will be able to successfully identify any type of energy fluctuation during your ghost study.

When investigating real haunted places, you will often be informed of situations and events that have occurred within a particular location that seem to establish the fact that ghosts are to blame. If you listen carefully, many people will share stories of seeing electrical based items and electricity in general acting erratically or in an unusual manner, and experiencing fluctuations in temperature. It has been established that these are all changes that occur within a particular energy field. By using a K-II meter, you will be able to accurately determine if there are energy fluctuations and if they are related to energy sources within a given location.

The K-II meter is a tool that was initially introduced by the Ghost Hunters TV show. Once they tried out the meter and received favorable results, most individuals that conducted their own ghost hunts were immediately drawn to the device. Today, this is now considered to be one of the most popular elements in ghost hunting kits worldwide. If you are interested in becoming a ghost hunter, it is essential that you include the
K-II meter in your ghost hunting kit. You will quickly find that it will assist in establishing your credibility when you elect to conduct a ghost study.

Hierarchy of Soul Mates and Twin Souls

There are basic categories of soul-connections that can be identified. We recognize them because of the role the souls play in each others lives and the energy underlying the connection.
Even as I write this, I do so for the purpose of helping you understand that not all soul-relationships are supposed to last an earth life of forever nor are they meant to be a feel good experience in many cases. We experience soul-mates for the primary purpose of helping us remember who WE are and to further our spiritual awakening while in these human bodies. There are numerous soul-encounters that can happen in our lives; this is simply an attempt to clarify the major categories.
Kindred Spirit:
While not actually related at the soul-level, we feel warm, comfortable and quickly at ease with these people. We share a profound mutual understanding of people and situations based on our similar soul age, spiritual values, and most likely metaphysical abilities. We energetically vibrate at a similar level, yet do not have the familial ties as with a member of our soul-family.
Primary: Parent, child, relative, friend
Primary soul-mates stay the course with us for years, often a lifetime. We experience the ebb and flow of life together. While these relationships have ups and downs they are about teaching us how to forgive, to love in a sustainable way- not for what someone can give us but for exactly who they are; faults and all (parents and siblings for example). These souls teach us about acceptance in a universal way. Over time we realize that we have chosen each other for lessons that could have come no other way. It is essential that you forgive these souls for any trauma they caused you. It is critical for your own health, but in terms of hierarchy of soul mates, you will never draw to you a high level soul mate until you have completely forgiven all primary soul mates.
Junior Soul Mate: Teacher, friend, person in line at the store, pal you meet on vacation
These souls might fulfill their role in an instant, or can be with you for a period of time. They won't stay with you long, but you will probably never forget them. These souls may say something to you that changes the course of your life. Their impact is powerful and there is no ability to ignore the prompt they bring you. If what they teach you "stings" at first, it will become one of those lessons you are most grateful for after you reach a certain level of spiritual awareness.
Karmic Partner:
Romantic partner, friend, fling
Ready set go with these. There is instant recognition. If it is a romantic relationship, the physical chemistry is intense. It is intense enough that the souls may choose to enjoy the physical expression while ignoring the little voice that says "there are issues here". These relationships burn intensely and typically end on terms that are unpleasant. These relationships are designed to teach major lessons that can only be taught by someone we love. When these relationships end, it's often one sided or out of anger rather than a slow fizzle. The person being "left" learns resiliency amongst other things and there could be many reasons why the leaver leaves; but they must learn how to end a relationship with mutual respect rather than an unexplained departure. If they don't learn this (either party), they will continue these kinds of relationships in this lifetime & the next until they learn the valuable lessons that ONLY these connections can teach. The sting of these breakups whether romantic or from someone you felt certain would be your friend forever can be devastating. This category of soul-mate bond is designed to teach you more about yourself than anything in your life to date. If you learn what is intended, you are preparing at the soul level for a High Level Soul Mate.
Karmic Companion: Friend, romantic partner, parent/child
There is not a lot of drama in these relationships. You've worked through most of your karma with these souls in prior lives. These relationships feel like a break from the intensity of other kinds of soul relationships. That can be a welcome change! They are based on friendship rather than passion. Certainly you will have some ups and downs and disagreements, but the overall purpose is that of companionship. The lessons in these relationships progress over time rather than being shoved down your throat. Karmic Companions can share any length of physical time together. A romantic or friendship Karmic Companion can last a lifetime; however if you separate things generally fizzle out rather than end suddenly. You will sense it's time to move on. There is a sense of maturity - "It is time we go our separate ways" and you will wish the best for your partner. It's a very "mature feeling" soul-mate bond.
Senior or High-Level Soul Mate
Romantic partner
Like meeting a Karmic Soul-Mate there is usually instant recognition- through the energy field or through the eyes. The desire to be with and truly know the other person at the soul level is intense. Partners at this level feel such joy to have discovered each other. It is often said there is a feeling of "coming home". There is deep and abiding friendship. The partners are willing to sacrifice something for themselves to benefit their mate. They discover that their mates completeness seems to mean as much as their own... yet they experience that without dismissing their own growth or happiness. There is a perfect and easy balance of "Me/You/Us". When problems to arise- and they will because we're human- the partners have the soul/mind tools to quickly rectify the situation and return to a place of harmony. These are ways in which you'll recognize the difference between a Senior Soul-Mate and a Karmic Soul-Mate. Partners at this level have learned to balance the need to remain self with the skills necessary to be a soul-based team.
Twin Flame- Two Souls Created From the Same Energetic Unit- Your Souls Most Complementary Partner
There is not always instant recognition. Twin Flame recognition occurs at the energetic/soul level rather than at the physical, although physical attraction typically follows. There is a compulsion toward each other that exceeds anything either has experienced in the past. It defies logic or rational thought. The Twins have trouble making eye contact at the beginning. That is because they have knowledge of everything about the other simply by looking into the eyes. This is a major responsibility and it is sensed by both parties. While a Senior Soul Mate can be recognized through the eyes, a Twin Flame perceives everything about their Twin through the eyes. There are elements unique to a Twin Flame pair that do not exist in other soul-connections. While all soul-mate relationships serve to further the spiritual growth of the individuals, Twin Flames meet for a purpose beyond the individual.
They must join their energy/souls to bring light, love and healing to the planet and its inhabitants. When these two unite, there is an exponential explosion of energy that is greater than the sum of the individual parts. Being presented your Twin Flame is the ultimate spiritual responsibility and should not be belittled by romanticizing the nature of the work to be done by the Twins.

Crystal and Indigo Children

Indigo Children
Indigo children are teenagers and young adults. They are naturally intuitive, perceptive, and sensitive. Many of them are psychic, creative and although they don't usually do well in school, they seem to "know" everything. Unfortunately most Indigo's are diagnosed with ADHD and put on medications to control their hyperactivity and attention deficit. Sadly when they are medicated they lose their unique personality traits and spiritual gifts. They do have trouble focusing and need to channel their energy into their passion and gifts. They do not do well in the traditional educational system, they do not conform well and have a rebellious spirit.
These kids have strong personalities and are warrior spirits here to pave the way for the new world. They are "system busters" and here to quash systems without integrity that are not ethical and productive such as our current governmental, educational, and healthcare systems. To do that they need to have hot tempers and fierce determination. If you are the parent of an Indigo, like I am, your job has probably not been easy. You can throw out the rulebooks when it comes to parenting an Indigo. They definitely have minds of their own and like to be in control.
Many of these kids are gifted and will be our future artists and healers they just need help focusing their energy and finding a creative outlet. They have extremely strong bonds with children, animals, and nature. They connect easily with the spirit realm and sense spirits and angels. They are sensitive to energies and it is not unusual for them to have the need to shower often. They can be extremely messy and disorderly because they have a difficult time focusing. They have personalities that are bigger than life and because of their sensitivities it is easy for them to fall into addictive behavior. Their brains functions differently and theses kids are actually wise beyond their years and misunderstood. We have a lot we can learn from these special and gifted kids.
Indigo Children are very responsive to love and love others very much. They are open, non-judgemental and love without prejedice. They see the beauty in others. They know what is right, have strong convictions and beliefs, and will stand up for them. If they feel they are unfairly disciplined, they will stand up to the parent or authority figure. Fighting for what they believe is right is a common trait of Indigos. These kids are here to teach us the basics of true unconditional love.
Crystal Children
The crystal children are the children usually born since the year 2000. In contrast to the Indigo children, these children are loving and peaceful spirits, incredibly gifted and natural healers. They radiate love! The first thing you will notice about a Crystal child is their eyes, large, deep, and penetrating. They are extremely kind and sensitive. These children are connected to the spiritual realm, many of them see and talk to angels, they are usually picky eaters preferring healthy foods, fruits and vegetables. They prefer whole foods of the earth over junk food. Of course they will indulge ice cream and treats too, they are children!
Many of them have delayed speech patterns and many are diagnosed with autism. They have the ability to communicate telepathically and can do quite well. These children are extraordinarily gifted, many child geniuses are being born in this group. They are multi-talented, creative and our future healers. Many Crystal Children have the gift of healing even as a child. They are so full of love and have such pure hearts that their mere presence on earth lifts the vibration and helps us to raise consciousness. Crystal Children have more activated DNA strands than adults. It's not uncommon for Crystal Children to be fascinated with crystals and rocks. Crystal children intuitively know about the magical properties of crystals and how to use them for healing.
Indigo and Crystal Adults
As our consiousness rises many of us adults are become more Indigo and more Crystal. As our consciousness evolves, we become more full of love and light and our hearts become purer. As we purify our hearts and hold more light, we activate more of our DNA and devolop more of our talents and gifts and become more "Christ like". In some ways we are all becoming more Crystal and Indigo. Our world is making an evolutionary leap into consciousness and as we as a group raise our own vibration, we raise the vibration of the planet and create a better world.
Healing for Children
I have conducted many Healing Sessions for children. I see in my sessions how early children pick up limiting beliefs from parents. Judgements, divorce and custody disputes can affect them. Children are precious and its unfortuante to see their beliefs clouded by disaproval and lack of affection when they are so full of love. Many Indigos suffer a from a lot of rage from having to fit in to a traditional system and not being able to fully express themselves. If they have suffered emotional traumas it always helps to release those before they become adults.
They can also greatly benefit from an Intensive Healing session. I know how frustrating it can be to raise and Indigo and the countless hours spent in doctors offices and with counselors. Many of these kids can also end up in the juvenile system and spend a lot of time in the counseling office at school. Many of them don't finish school but don't let that worry you too much. They are full of potential!
The sessions can help them release rage, reconnect spiritually, and have a sense of purpose and direction that will help them get on the right path. For older children I prefer to always have their permission. Healing is always the most effective when someone wants it for themselves.

Halloween and It's Ancient Origins

The Halloween custom has come a long way from its origins in Celtic Ireland, transforming from people celebrating a serious Pagan holiday into a fun, kid-friendly holiday. The history of the Halloween custom probably won't end until the holiday itself dies out -- and that isn't going to happen anytime soon.

The ancient origins of the Halloween custom originates from 2,000 years ago, from a sacred Celtic festival called Samhain. Samhain was an important festival in Celtic culture, celebrating the end of a year, and representing the final harvest for farmers. Since Samhain signified the end of a year, Celts also associated it with human death. They believed that on the night of October 31st the ghosts of the dead were able to mingle with the living, because at Samhain the souls of those who had died during the year travelled into the otherworld. People gathered to sacrifice animals, fruits, and vegetables during this occasion. They also lit bonfires in honor of the dead, to aid them on their journey, and to keep them away from the living. On that day all manner of beings were considered to be in attendance, ghosts, fairies, and demons. They also believed it made it easier for Druids to make predictions about the future.

Christianity had spread into Celtic territory by the 800s. In an attempt to eradicate Samhain, Pope Boniface IV made November 1 All Saints' Day, making the Celtic festival a church-approved holiday. All Saints' Day was also called All-hallows or All-hallowmas, and the night before All Saints' Day was called All-hallows Eve. In the year 1000 the Catholic Church made November 2 All Souls' Day, a day to honor the dead. It was very similar to Samhain because they also lit huge bonfires. Christians would usually light big bonfires, dressed up in Halloween costumes (such as a saint or devil) and have parades, honoring the dead.

During the celebrations, poorer residents begged for food. Families would give these residents soul cakes, a type of pastry -- but only if they prayed for their family's dead relatives. The church encouraged families to do this instead of leaving out food during the night. The church wanted to curb non-residents from entering the city and taking advantage of the free food. These were the origins of trick-or-treating.

When Europeans immigrated to colonial America in the 1700s they brought the tradition of Samhain-inspired Halloween. Halloween wasn't celebrated openly at first because Christians believed it was a pagan holiday, but it was openly celebrated in Maryland. The meshing of different ethnic groups, including the Native Americans, created a new form of Halloween, closely matching modern America's version of Halloween. The first official celebrations included public events celebrating the last harvest, where people would tell stories of the dead, read each other's fortunes, and dance. Halloween didn't truly become a holiday until the 1800s, when an influx of immigrants moved to America.

The celtic custom of Halloween surged into American tradition in the 1840's by Irish immigrants fleeing their country's potato famine, transforming into today's version of this popular holiday. At that time, the favorite pranks in New England included tipping over outhouses and unhinging fence gates. The custom of "trick or treating" is thought to have originated not with the Irish Celts, but with a ninth-century European custom called "Souling". On November 2, "All Souls Day", early Christians would walk from village to village begging for "soul cakes," made out of square pieces of bread with currants. The more soul cakes the beggars would receive, the more prayers they would promise to say on behalf of the dead relatives of the donors. These were the origins of modern America's trick-or-treating tradition.

All-hallows Eve, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day were celebrated for many centuries, collectively called Hallowmas. This holiday eventually turned into what we know today as Halloween. Happy Halloween!

Magick Tools - The Chalice

When performing real spells and other magickal work, there is often a need to offer libations to the gods and goddesses of your chosen craft. For these rituals, a chalice is necessary. The Chalice or goblet is a cup, usually made of glass, wood or metals like silver, pewter, stainless steel, copper or gold.

Historically, Chalices were used to hold the sacramental wine in religious ceremonies. During the Roman period, the Chalice (or Calix) was a drinking vessel made from a bowl fixed atop a stand. It was commonly used during banquets. The Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy, Anglicans, Lutherans and other Christian denominations use the Chalice for Eucharist or Holy Communion. The Chalices were made from precious metals and decorated with jewels. They are considered sacred and treated with the upmost respect. The Holy Grail is an example of the type of veneration and respect shown to the Chalice.

In Wiccan tradition, Chalices are associated with water and the feminine principle. They represent thel qualities of a woman as the Athame does for the male principle. In fact that Chalice is often used in combination with the Athame in many ceremonies like the Great Rite because they evoke that act of procreation, symbolizing universal creativity. The Chalice may contain wine, whiskey, water, milk, beer or other liquids during feasts and holy days.

The Chalice you choose should be one that you are comfortable with because you need to connect with its energy. You may have more than one Chalice. Some use gold for rituals involving the Sun and silver for the moon.

It is important to consider what type of material you are using in your Chalice because metals like pewter can be dangerous when mixed with wine or alcohol. Wood chalices do not do well holding liquid for long periods of time. You need to find a Chalice that "feels right" to you. You can find Chalices just about anywhere. Online in wiccan or metaphysical stores, flea markets, antique stores and even second hand stores like Goodwill.

History of Weighing Scales

Weighing scales were invented during the historical times. It is believed that the first weighing balance was used in the Mesopotamia Civilization in 4000 BC A weighing scale was the very basic need of any barter system in recent times. Few simple techniques evolved as units of measurement became popular. A weighing scale served the basic function of compare the masses of two objects or two different goods during the old ages. The first weighing scale was made of wood and it was actually a weighing balance. It consisted of two wooden containers to keep the goods in them and both these containers were connected to each other through a wire or iron rod. Now the goods were put in the containers and the balanced weight was achieved when both the containers rested at the same level.

With the beginning of the trade era, need of an accurate weighing balance became very vital. The first- ever weighing balance of the modern times was built and designed by the great artist Leonardo Da Vinci in the late 15th century. People started making certain innovations and in 1770, Richard Salter, a British citizen designed his first spring balance to measure small and medium objects. 68 years later, after numerous modifications and improvements, he patented his spring balance in 1838.

After that, the new generation of the spring scales came into picture. It was known as strain balances, which consisted of a strain gauge and measured the electrical resistance caused by the object to be weighed. These spring balances were far better than their predecessors were and they had more accuracy and less scope of error. In 1897, first indicating scale of the history was built.

The indicating scales appeared in 1940 and since then, the electronically designed weighing balances are ruling the market. Be it on the industrial scale or the domestic level, electronic scales have grabbed the market from tip to toe. The most interesting thing of the history of the weighing balances is that we still have to weigh the mass against a standard and there is no fixed rule to set the weight of that 'standard object'. Assumptions govern the weighing balances and accuracy is just a belief. However, modern electronic weighing balances are capable of confirming this belief to a great extent, as they have very less scope of error and can give precise results up to five decimal places.

Aztec Calendar - Why it Is Different From the Mayan Calendar

Many conceive that the Aztecs and the Mayans are the same people, but they are not. Although both of these civilizations are pre-European in origin, their cultures are different. Their only similarity is that they managed to create a grand civilization in the ancient past that even today keeps us amazed at their accomplishments and influence in our civilization.

The Aztecs were certain ethnic groups in Central Mexico, particularly those groups who spoke the Nahuatl language and who dominated large parts of Mesoamerica in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, a period referred to as the late post-classic period in Mesoamerican chronology. They had developed a unique technique of agriculture where they would put a soil on rafts made of reeds and plant seeds on it. They called it Chinampas or floating garden. The Aztecs were outstanding craftsmen and sculptors. They are intense people who make sacrifices to their sun god and they use their war captives as sacrifice. They believe that if the human sacrifices are stopped, the sun god would not rise. They also practice cannibalism. Surprisingly, they had a court system and they recognize only one supreme ruler. The Aztecs were destroyed by the Spaniards and those who survived can perhaps be glimpsed among the present day Mexicans.

The Mayans belongs to the Mesoamerican civilization. The Mayan civilization is around a thousand years older than those with the Aztecs. They are a peaceful loving people and because of this nature they were easily conquered by the Spaniards. They are noted to have the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian America, as well as its art, architecture, mathematical and astronomical systems. They studied the solar system and came up with a very credible calendar that is similar to the modern one we have today. Their sense of art is expressed in murals depicting their existence. They are focused in creating a system in their environment. The Mayans have cities each ruled by their own sovereign ruler. The Mayans can still be found in Yucatan, Southeastern Mexico in the present day.

Both civilizations have developed a calendar that are said to predict the future of mankind.

The Aztec calendar shares the same principle and purpose as the one believed by the Mayans. In the mythology of the Aztecs, the first age of mankind ended with the animals devouring humans. The second age was finished by wind, the third by fire, and the fourth by water. The present fifth significant period is called Nahui-Olin or Sun of Earthquake, which began in 3113 BC and will end on December 24, 2011.

The Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. The Mayan elders did not prophesize that everything will come to an end. Rather, there will be a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they gave concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. However, there is no way to know exactly what will happen in the future.

What is Planet X?

Planet X is a recently discovered planet that is known to have come from the far reaches of our solar system and is now considered to be a great threat to the galaxy and most especially to the planet Earth. But what exactly do we know about this so called Planet X and how could it possibly destroy billions of living people and creatures here on Earth?

Planet X is also known as the planet Nibiru and was discovered by NASA in the early 1980s. The discovery was made by using state of the art infrared sensors that are equipped in their observatories and satellites. During that time, it was sited near the Milky Way's Kuiper belt and had then been considered to be a threat as it slowly travels towards the solar system. Planet X or more commonly known today as planet Nibiru 2012 has gained its momentum and is now known to be a couple of years shy away from making its destructive arrival here on earth, in 2012.

It is said that the effects of the arrival of Planet X, also known as the 12th planet, would be destructive. There are even those who say that the effects might be greater than those on the bible. These effects include billions of deaths, extreme natural disasters, famine, solar flares, wars and a lot more. Such devastating effects would happen when Planet X finally reaches the earth. This is why the imminent arrival of Planet X has been connected to a lot of end of the world prophecies, like the planetary alignment 2012 and Mayan 2012 prophecies.

The ancient Mayan calendar's long count cycle will end on December 21, 2012 and foretells of a big, devastating, mysterious and troubling end of the world as we all know it. This has caused a lot of people to believe that the arrival of Planet X would be the big, mysterious and troubling event that will happen. There are several ideas on how to prevent the arrival of Nibiru, such as the intervention theory, that has also been circulating as well as the usual band of skeptics, but considering the fact that the Mayan, Aztec and Sumerian culture is known worldwide for its great advancement in astronomy and mathematics, the prophecies attract more and more believers every day.

The ancient Mayan prophecy may be true, or it may be faulty but it does not belie the fact that Planet X is coming and as the days go by, slowly reveals itself as a threat to the planet's existence; the question now is, is there any way that we can stop it?

Crystal Magic

Crystals and stones are sacred magical tools which help us to enhance rituals and magic. They are gifts of the Goddess and God. Some ways of Earth Magic with crystals and stones are:

Preparing The Circle

We can use the stones to mark our circle instead of using herbs. We begin and end at the North point, laying 7, 9, 21 or 40 quartz crystals around the circle, either inside the cord or in place of it. The points of the quartz crystals are placed facing outwards for a usual spiritual or magical nature, or facing inwards for a protective nature. Candles can be used to mark the four quarters of the magic circle in place of the large stones, but ring each candle with one or more of the following stones:

  • North - Moss Agate, Emerald, Jet, Olivine, Salt, Black Tourmaline
  • East - Imperial Topaz, Citrine, Mica, Pumice
  • South - Amber, Obsidian, Rhodochrosite, Ruby, Lava, Garnet
  • West - Aquamarine, Chalcedony, Jade, Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, Sugilite

An Altar From Stone

The best way to make an altar from stone is to scour the dry river beds and seashores for a selection of smooth stones. You could alternatively buy from a rock shop. Create the altar with 3 large stones, 2 small ones as the base and a longer flat stone on top. Place 1 stone on the left to represent the Goddess. You could choose a stone of the Goddess.

Place a stone to the right to represent the God, a longer club shaped rock or choose a stone of the God.

Place a smaller stone in between the Goddess and God with a red candle to represent the element fire, and the devine energy from the Goddess and God.

Place a flat stone in front for offerings of wine, honey, cakes, flowers, fruit and semi precious stones.

If you can find a small cupped stone, place to the left of the offering stone and fill with water to represent the element.

Place another flat piece of rock to the left of the offering stone and pour some salt on to it to symbolize the element Earth.

You could place another flat stone in front of the offering stone to use as an incense burner.

Use a long quartz crystal as a wand and a flint or obsidan arrowhead for use as the magic knife.

Place any other tools required on the altar.

All Wiccan spells can be performed with this altar.

Stones of the Goddesses

Stones related to the Moon or Venus, Water and Earth stones should be used. Usually pink, green and blue stones.

  • Aphrodite: salt
  • Ceres: emerald
  • Coatlicue: jade
  • Cybele: jet
  • Diana: amethyst, moonstone, pearl
  • Freya: pearl
  • The Great Mother: amber, coral, geodes, holed stones
  • Hathor: turquoise
  • Isis: coral, emerald, lapis lazuli, moonstone, pearl
  • Kwan Yin: jade
  • Lakshmi: pearl
  • Maat: jade
  • Mara: beryl, aquamarine
  • Nuit: laps lazuli
  • Pele: lava, obsidian, peridot, olivine, pumice
  • Selene: moonstone, selenite
  • Tiamat: beryl
  • Venus: emerald, lapis lazuli, pearl

Stones of the God

Usually orange and red stones are used. Stones related to the Sun and Mars, Fire and Air ruled stones:

  • Aesculapius: agate
  • Apollo: sapphire
  • Bacchus: amethyst
  • Cupid: opal
  • Dionysus: amethyst
  • Mars: onyx, sardonyx
  • Neptune: beryl
  • Odin: holed stone
  • Poseidon: beryl, pearl, aquamarine
  • Ra: tigers eye
  • Tezcatilpoca: obsidian


Throughout the world , people used to build piles of stones to mark a historic event. These cairns had ritual significance. Cairns are places of power. Cairns are connected to the ground and face upwards to the sky to represent the connection between physical and spiritual.

Commonly during outdoor circles, a small cairn of 9 or 11 rocks were fashioned at each point of the Circle of Stones.

Visualize the Power of Stones

Sit in a lonely place where there are lots of stones. Visualize a magical need. Still visualizing, grab a stone. Feel the energy. Place on the ground. Pick up another and visualize the magic need and feel the power of the stone. Place next to the other stone on the ground. Keep visualizing and adding stones to your pile until you feel a vibration from the Earths energy and power within these stones. Place the last rock on top affirming your ritual intent. Place your hands either side of the pile and visualize your energy passing to these stones. Leave your cairn to do its work.

Wiccan Tools

Tools Used In Wicca

Just like most other religions, there are various tools and objects used for ritual purposes. They are used to invoke Deities, get rid of negativity and directing energy with our touch or intentions.

Most people will already associate a broom, cauldron and a magic wand with witches. While these do have there place within the Wiccan world, only Wiccans understand the real power associated with each. If you are just starting out, there is no need to spend great amounts of money on specialist items. These tools are symbolic so you can use what ever you like. You will find by making some of your own tools, you would feel more comfortable with the energy in you and your tool. That tool would be designed purposely for its use and for you.

Working with these tools and familiarizing yourself with their powers whilst adding your own energies into them, you will find that they become obvious and second nature. It can be quite difficult to acquire them but you will.

As you acquire each tool, clean it thoroughly to remove all associations and energies. Dry the tool and then bury it for a few days to remove any energies which were left. Dig it back p and wipe clean. It is now ready for your magic. You may choose to have a consecration ceremony for each tool if you desire.

The Broom

The broom is used in magic and ritual. Sacred to both the Goddess and God. Obviously Witches can't fly around on broomsticks. Witch persecutors invented this tale to show their alliance to dark powers. If this could be performed, it would be supernatural and regarded as the Devil in the eyes of Witches.

The broom is used today in Wicca. Before a ritual, the area either inside or out, may be swept with the magical broom before setting up the altar. The sweeping is more of a physical cleansing. The broom doesn't even need to touch the ground. Just by visualizing, the broom removes the astral buildup to purify the area before a ritual.

The broom is a purifier and is therefore linked with the element Water. It can be used in all water spells including love and psychic workings.

The old magical formula for making a broom is an ash (protective) staff, birch (purifying) twigs with a willow (sacred to the Goddess) binding. It doesn't really matter what kind of tree or bush you use. It can be as small or as large as you like. Just remember to thank the tree for its sacrifice to you!

Wiccan and pagan handfastings often include leaping over the broom during the ceremony.

The Wand

Utilized for thousands of years, the wand is used to direct energy, to draw magical symbols on the ground, to point towards danger and stirring the cauldron. The wand is one of the prime magical tools. Traditionally wands were made from various woods such as willow, elder, oak, apple, peach, hazel, cherry and more. Some Wiccans measure from the elbow to the tip of the forefinger and cut back their wand to that size. You could even use dowel, but I recommend you find and create one rather than buying. A wand will come to you as will most of your tools.

The Censer

The censer is an incense burner. During a Wiccan rite the censer hold the smoldering incense. When no particular incense has been requested for a certain ritual or spell, then pick your own. Most Wiccans favor the granulated incense but sticks and cones will be fine. Spirits are sometimes asked to appear visible in the smoke from the censer during ceremonial magic, not in Wicca though. Wiccans often reports seeing the Goddess and God in the rising smoke.

When performing a Wiccan ritual indoors, you must use incense, whereas outside you may use a fire. The censer represents the element Air. The censer can be used for fumigating and smudging, purifying, raising power, trance like states, banishing evil spirits, encouraging and welcoming spirits.

The Cauldron

The cauldron is an ancient vessel of cooking and brew making. The cauldron is highly mysterious and steeped in magical tradition. Wicca sees the cauldron as a symbol for the womb of the Goddess. Its symbolic of the element Water, reincarnation, immortality, inspiration and the essence of femininity and fertility. It is the main focal point during a ritual.The cauldron is used for burning, fertility magic, lunar magic, brewing herbs and potions.

Cauldrons can be found in all sizes from a few inches to three feet across. Ideally, it would be made of iron with three legs. Most Wiccans today, who live in the city, use their own pots and pans and their kitchen. Don't look too hard for a cauldron, they are quite hard to find, but if you need one, be patient and the Goddess and God might ensure it will come to you.


An athame represents the element Fire or Air depending on tradition. It is used for ceremonial purposes with male energy and symbolizes animus. The most important tool of the witches collection and should be sought after with conviction. It would be better to find or acquire it rather than buying unless you spotted it at a flea market etc and you knew you just had to have it. There are some nice letter openers out there which will do the trick. The athame is used for mixing, inscribing, charging, consecrating, empowering, drawing lines, making choices.

White Handled Knife

This knife is purely practical and not a ritualistic knife. It is used for cutting wands, herbs, cords and inscribing into candles or wood etc. It must be kept apart from the rest of the household and used only in preparation for rituals.

Crystal Sphere

The crystal quartz sphere is an ancient magical tool and is very expensive depending on the size. There are plenty of cheaper glass and leaded glass ones on the market today. The crystal is used in contemplative divination where the diviner gazes into the ball until images are revealed either in the mind or projected to the depths of the crystal.

Sometimes, in Wiccan ritual, the crystal sphere is placed on the altar to represent the Goddess. The crystal may be used to store energy raised in ritual or even receive messages from the Gods. Some Wiccans scry in the crystal to call up images of past lives and of the Goddess. It is a magical object which must be closely guarded.

Exposure to moonlight, rubbing the crystal with mugwort, will increase its ability for our psychic powers. It may also be the center of Full Moon rituals.

The Chalice / The Cup

Simply a cauldron with a stem. May contain the ritual beverage or just water. You could sit it on your altar to remind you of your blessings, washing and refilling it periodically as the water evaporates.

The Pentacle

Usually a flat piece of brass, gold, silver, wood, wax, clay or even glass inscribed with symbols. The most common and the only necessary is the five pointed star which has been used for magic for millenia. The pentacle represents the element Earth, and can be used to place items upon it ready for consecration. It can be used to summon the Goddesses and Gods.

Pentacles can be hung with the star pointing upwards over doors and windows for protection.

The five points represent any of the following:

  • birth, initiation, consummation, repose, death
  • love, wisdom, knowledge, law, power
  • spirit, air, water, earth, fire
  • spirit, water, fire, earth, air

The Book of Shadows

The Wiccan workbook contains invocations, rituals, spells, runes and notes. Some Books of Shadows are passed on but most are composed by each individual. Traditionally, a Book of Shadows is hand written but nowadays computer written is fine. Use a Book of Shadows as a collection of notes you wish to keep for reference as you progress through life. Never feel tied down to other Books of Shadows, they are not "holy writ". You are free to use and change anything you like.

The Bell

The ringing of the bell has powerful effects depending on its volume, tone and construction material. The bell is often used to invoke the Goddess during ritual. The bell can be used to ward off evil and evoke good energies. Hanging a bell above a door guards the home. Sometimes bells are rung during rituals to mark the beginning or the end of a spell.

A Brief Wiccan Beginner's Guide

A Wicca beginner's guide will only ever be able to whet your appetite and give you the basics on what is a rich and complex faith and way of life. This is not only due to the huge amount of reading material out there but actually it's also because of the deeply personal and flexible nature of Wicca. No two Wiccans ever practise in exactly the same way. So if you've ended up here due to an overload of info, this Wicca Beginner's Guide aims to give you the confidence to take your first tentative steps and makes some suggestions on what those steps should be.

Wicca or Witchcraft?

Wiccan and witchcraft actually have the same roots and in fact Wicca is a neopagan form of witchcraft that branched off to avoid being stigmatised after the centuries of persecution of witches. This leaves a lot of room for personal choice in the way you practise. Many prefer to stick to the ancient ways as much as possible (although there is a lot of dispute as to how much we know of what is genuine and what isn't), while others opt for a modern version. An example of this would be that most modern Wiccans choose to write spells in the modern tongue in order to avoid misinterpretation of the wording. However, what binds them all is usually an adherence to the original values. The powers of the universal elements that were honoured by our forbearers are still cardinal.

The Pentacle - The Symbol of Wicca

No good Wicca Beginner's Guide could fail to include the 5 pointed Wiccan symbol of the pentacle. This represents the universal elements of air, fire, earth, water and the spirit. These respected powers are both honoured and also garnered in spell work and rituals, each giving their unique characteristics to your spell. Take the time to study these and you will find much of what Wicca is truly about starts to become clear.

The Wiccan Rede & Three Fold Law

Sadly some people still associate 'the dark arts' with Wicca and so I feel this Wicca Beginner's Guide should address this by stating that the 2 main rules actively discourage this. There are very few rules to Wicca and few would have it any other way. However, a Wicca Beginner's Guide should most certainly include what could be described as the Wicca code of conduct - the Wiccan Rede, which goes "An ye harm none, do as you will". It is a simple but powerful morality which asks that you do not bring harm upon yourself or to others, and with this request met, you are free to do as you please.

The three fold law states that the energy you give out will come back to you but with three times the force. If your act or deed is one of kindness, this will be returned to you multiplied by three. If your actions or intentions are harmful, you should consider the outcome seriously.


It is very common for those who seek out a Wicca Beginner's Guide to actually be looking for info on spells! And it's no surprise, this being one of the most exciting aspects of Wicca. Spells are not actually essential and many choose not to work with them but for those who do, it is more about learning how to work in tune with the natural energies, to respect the elements around us, rather than creating miracles. Spell casting should be an emotional response rather than a desire to control.

It is very important to start off with something simple. This will give you the right grounding in what works for you and what your particular skills are. It is fine to use spells written by others but writing your own spells should be what you are aiming for so don't be afraid to make small adjustments here and there in order to make it more personal and therefore more effective. Find the right combination of ingredients, tools and wording that speaks to you and you will find you progress so much more quickly.

I hope you have found some useful suggestions here in this basic Wiccan Beginner's Guide. All that remains to be said is merry meet and welcome to you!

Spell casting can be done in a number of ways. You can either use a spell that has originally been written by someone else, or you can just make up one of your own. However, it must be mentioned that your own spells will work better for you than the ones created by someone other than you. Writing a spell in not a very difficult task, and this is true even if you are only a beginner in witch crafting.
