praying for those who migrate

Please consider praying for those who migrate, and consider supporting in more physical ways too.  A lot of my friends like No More Deaths. Respect and dignity are not optional.  I think borders are mostly ridiculous.  I’m an anarchist.  I want to be a butterfly flying over a wall.  If we had a functional culture… Read More »

self-forgiveness ritual

Hey, I did a self-forgiveness ritual for Thanksgiving.  I don’t see relatives anymore, and we had a special feast with the Las Vegas Catholic Worker a few days early.  So we’re free to make holidays special however we want. I wrote this self-forgiveness ritual last year, but I don’t think I ever performed it.  So… Read More »

amazing ritual

We did an amazing ritual the other night.  It was the night of the day we went to Gilcrease for pumpkin picking with UU friends.  I didn’t actually pick a pumpkin, but Ming did.  Here’s me holding his pumpkin by the car. I roamed the place by myself, for a satisfying morning walk.  Felt good… Read More »

altered state

I had an experience where I went into a mentality different from my usual and got a message from my mom.  It was an altered state, like when people use mushrooms, LSD, peyote, fasting, or holotropic breathing to enter an altered state.  Or psychosis, delusions, visions, or other mental health experiences that are common for… Read More »

witch

A friend asked what it means that I’m a witch.  Thanks for asking!  I’ve described myself as a trikewitch, garden witch, pagan, pantheist Earth-worshiper, and goddess worshiper.  All are true. I was pagan as a teenager and young adult, happy to find a religion that made sense to me.  I’d been worshiping the moon for… Read More »

Trinity Day

In the early morning on Trinity Day, I did a peace ritual in the courtyard.  Ming recorded me.  Please see the video.  It’s mostly a prayer. I post the words of the whole ritual in the description.  Thanks for praying with me, or using this ritual to design your own. I planned and wrote it… Read More »

witch problem

“Hey, honey.  Can you advise me on this witch problem I have?” I asked. “Sure,” Ming said. “Ok, so I was thinking.  I should get a tortilla.  Then I can write something on it and bury it in the ground, and it wouldn’t be littering.” My recounting of this conversation is accurate, but the ideas… Read More »

the ritual realized

I told you about the breakup ritual I planned, but now I want to tell you about the ritual realized. The prep was a lot, but the ritual itself went pretty quickly.  I invited Ming, and he was happy to participate.  I had the creosote flower, candle from that thrift store anointed with rose oil,… Read More »

breakup ritual

Ritual is a helpful way to tell truths to myself.  I wrote this breakup ritual to help my body let go of a friend.  I was storing the love in my body, so it’s important to loosen it and let the love-energy flow on to do other things. Getting my mind, body, and spirit all… Read More »

the ritual

The ritual I had on January 24th was important to me because it moved through me some feelings that I didn’t know were stuck. My friend proposed it, when I sent a mass email to ask for help around my mom’s death anniversary.  My friend is elsewhere, the one I know who seems most connected… Read More »
