Party Opportunity

Sometime in the past few months here my original pagan website site “The Pagan’s Path” surpassed 500k Visitors & I didn’t notice. Well I would have Partied!!

PagansPath.com is a free spiritual education site. Offering online information and studies to those on a path of enlightened growth. Whether you’re Pagan, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim or traveling on any other spiritual path, learning about other beliefs and ways, will teach you how similar we all really are. And how our differences are nothing to fear.

This information is shared in the hope of opening one’s heart to the blessings of tolerance and acceptance to those who have chosen to walk on the Pagan Path.

PagansPath.com was born from what we called the “SpringIce Network” Established On October 2, 1996 as an original AOL website. Wow that was a long time ago. As AOL evolved so did our intent to share information. And so was my life.

ppath-500kI separated from my first husband, the “Ice” part of SpringIce and moved on. Since he had never participated in our original site, I evolved the name and The Pagan’s Path was born on Ostara 1999.

Tonight I noticed the counter on the site. It’s been a while since I thought about that part of the site. But this evening my son and I were looking at our blogs and comparing visitors.  Which had me thinking about Pagan’s Path. It was both exciting and sort of sad that I hadn’t paid attention to such a milestone number as 500,000 visitors.

I’m celebrating today though, in my own little way. Time really does fly when you’re having fun!

Be Cautious Of Social Media Connections

Be The Alpha LeaderGuilt By Association

A couple of years ago I read an article about being careful who you “Like” on social media sites if you’re a small business. It’s unfortunate that “guilt by association” is something we must be cautious of in a spiritual community, but sometimes it’s even more important in our world.

We make our way in our spiritual practice or business based on our reputation and through word of mouth. Here our reputation is everything! Few things can damage your reputation as quickly as a link to an unsavory person or their business.

Because of this article, I am very cautious about accepting invitations online. Unless I have time to do some research or already know and trust the person, I don’t accept the connection. Whether it’s on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or any other social media source. It’s not something I do out of arrogance or disdain. But it is done for purely selfish reason; to ensure my reputation is always within my control.

Today a friend who has a small spiritual candle business in the north-west contacted me asking for prayers because of this very issue. She makes the most amazing scented candles with an emphasis on aroma therapy. She uses her own energy to connect with the Divine in her life as she creates the wax and pours the candles. She includes an incantation as she pours the wax to infuse each candle with a specific energy. It’s truly a special gift and talent. (At this time I’m going to keep her name and her candle business out of this article as she wants this story to be shared, but wants to be anonymous).  Continue reading
