Tarot Meditation Message for 2014

Major Arcana JudgementHappy New Year!

Many of you have asked for a Tarot meditation message for the year. Considering the number of emails I received I decided to comply. Now to be honest, I’ve never pulled a card for a full years message before. So this is a first. I hope it inspires you to stretch your boundaries and push your abilities beyond your comfort zone as it has mine!

2014’s Tarot Meditation Message: Judgement
The overall theme for the year:
Judgement is a card from the Major Arcana of a Tarot Deck. As such it represents the spiritual aspects of the self and how important your spiritual lessons, karma and perspectives will be throughout the year.

Living in balance between the physical and spiritual words that surround you are not only important, but doing so will help you maintain a focus of balanced judgement in what you see, hear and how you react to events in your life. Continue reading

Setting The Motto For 2014

The Yearly Affirmation

If you’ve followed me for any significant time, you know that I don’t set resolutions for the coming year. To me it’s an act of setting yourself up to fail, as I’ve yet to meet anyone in person who says they have kept their New Years Resolution throughout the entire year.

Some years ago I decided to create a Motto for the year. An affirmation that will carry me through the good times and the hardships. A phrase that both empowers and inspires hope. One that I can say when ever needed. That I can pull into daily meditations, or recite each morning as I look in the mirror and get ready for the day with a clear purpose.

In last years 2013 Motto post, I reminded you to remember words have meaning and energy. What you think and say, how you act and react creates energy around you. That energy you establish within will dictate the energy you attract to you each day. Start your day with a positive thought and give it energy to manifest.

My Motto for 2014:

I am at peace and live in the moment,
with all the prosperity and abundance I require!

May you have a wonderful, prosperous and abundant new year!

Counting My Blessings

friendshipA Story of Friendship

I’m from a little town in Tennessee called Jonesborough. I didn’t grow up there, but my Grand Mother lived on West Main St. until her passing many years ago. My dad was born in that house. When we went to visit family, all of whom live around there, that’s where we stayed. It was going down “home” and I truly love that little place.

One of the things that still draws me to this little town is its history, being the Oldest Town in Tennessee, and that it’s home of the International Storytelling Center. A truly wonderful place to visit!

To show my support for one of my favorite places, I follow the ISC on Facebook. This weekend, they shared a story that is definitely worth reading. They posted this on their FB page. Continue reading

2014 Moon Phase Calendar

howlingwolfOur Popular Reference Sheet

Each year I publish a calendar for the moon phases and astronomical events of the coming year. About this time I’m amazed by the number of people sending me messages asking if I’m going to update the calendar for the coming year. I’m very glad the calendar has become such a popular resource for so many people. Especially in this technological age of tablets and smart phones.

If you’re one of those folks who enjoy the Moon Phases Calendar on my old Pagan’s Path website, it’s been updated today for 2014!

This will probably be the last year I update the calendar because of those technological apps. They do a great job of personalizing phases and events for your specific location.

If you have a tablet or smart phone, I have a couple of apps on my phone that I use throughout the year that you might like. What I like about them the most is they notify me of phase changes. I have a reminder set for a few days before a moon phase change so I have time to get ready for a ritual or make plans for a Esbat ceremony I might be officiating. Between my two favorite apps, I never miss a phase change or a daily event.

I gave a critique of these apps here on Reflections in December 2012. So check out Sun & Moon Watching On Your Phone for more info.

Ever taken a picture on vacation, gotten home and found a ghost in the image? With cell phones and digital cameras all over the place these days, more and more people are capturing images of what they think are real evidence of ghosts.

We received some great pictures to share for the show. Check them out on the AenigmaBlog.

Got a picture you’d like us to see and discuss Monday night? Send it to Paul Cagel <paul@aenigmaproject.com> and our professional Paranormal Investigators from the South Eastern Paranormal Society (SEPS), will check it out!

<— BUT please, no pictures of light orbs like the one shown here on the left! It looks like a cute ghost face, but seriously…it’s not a ghost and images like this are rarely; if ever proof of a paranormal experience.

We’re looking for pictures like this one:

A Homily: Observing The Holiday

TinyHouseLightsPagans Living Amongst The Christians

“I’m not Christian, I don’t celebrate Christmas”, “I’m pagan, why should I be forced to celebrate Christmas”, “It’s too hard to tell your extended family that you do not observe their bastardized holiday.”

I received several messages like these over the past few days. For those of us who do not celebrate the Christian Holiday, no matter what time of the year it is, there’s another way to look at spending time with your family members who do.

You go to parties that are given for your relatives and their birthdays. Moments to mark another year older, or an event for celebrating a milestone in their life, such as a graduation, a new job, retirement and so on. Why do you observe those days? It’s not your birthday or your achievement. So why do you participate in those events? Isn’t so you can share in the celebration of what’s important to those you care about? So you can be with your family and friends to create happy memories while they are here with you? Continue reading
