Cougar Dreams and The Power of Choosing

To every man there openeth 
A way, and ways, and a way.
And the high soul climbs the high way,
And the low soul gropes the low.
And in between, on the misty flats,
The rest drift to and fro.
But to every man there openeth
A high way and a low,
And every man decideth
The way his soul shall go.

---John Oxenham

Believe it or not, even personal development coaches can sometimes feel themselves struggling with inertia, seemingly unable to figure out much less take the next step, feeling stuck. Recently, in the throes of a particularly impotent (figuratively speaking) period where I felt both my personal and professional life were going nowhere fast, I had an unusually vivid dream.

3 key principles to working with the fae

If you’re a Witch, chances are you have a relationship with the faerie folk, whether you realize it or not.

Abracadabra of Faerie

head_Craig-ConleyWordsmith Craig Conley muses on a magical word that’s also a proper name.

Delving through dusty old tomes in search of ancient expressions of enchantment, I noticed that one command in particular seemed to trace directly back to Faery. I was searching for subtle, mysterious, transformative words, whose vibrations seemed to transcend the laws of physics. One such mystical word proved time and time again to be the name of a great lady Faery. Small wonder that her name has endured as the best-known and best-loved magic word in recorded history.

Faerie, Faery & Feri: Who’s Who and What’s What

What is Faerie (or Faery or Fairy) Wicca? What is Feri? How are these magickal practices different from other Pagan practices? In general, one could say that these forms of practice differ in that practitioners call upon faeries, elves, and other Fae beings instead of or in addition to other deities. It’s far more complicated than that, of course, but it’s a good place to start. There are several major Fae magickal traditions, and of course there might be as many offshoots of those as there are varieties of Faerie across world culture.
