A Look At 777

Number Seven / 7 by Springwolf 🐾 © The Inspiration of Numbers

Well now that we’ve corrected the big mistake we made on the numerology section, of the blog (A Correction – In Full Disclosure), I’m going to jump right in and share some numerological insight for something I discovered today, and that I found kind of interesting and intriguing.

If you’ve seen my number insights before you know that Mathematics is the only language shared by all humans regardless of culture, religion, or gender. Numerology is the study of the divine or mystical relationship between a count or measurement and life. It has many systems and traditions and beliefs. My practice of numerology is Shamanistic Numerology that’s based on Celtic and North American Shamanistic teachings. It’s not the only method, the best method or the true method. It’s simply one of many methods and one that resonates most with me and my personal perspectives of the Divine and the world we live in.

From a Shamanistic Numerology standpoint, today’s number is a Sub-Prime number and as a numerical number it represents the spiritual aspect of this event. Continue reading

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Share the burden, you don’t have to do everything alone. Asking for help is not a weakness, it’s a strength that allows you to achieve success together. Together you can read more, research more, do more and complete more. You move the projects and activities forward with more achievement and more success.


Additional Insight:

You can struggle and waste time, slowing down the process of getting things done and risking the loss of opportunities that are coming your way.

Or, you can swallow your pride and ask for help in order to achieve your goals and put your thoughts and plans into action. You can be ready when opportunities arise. You can get more done by delegating and letting go of that task, so you can focus on a bigger item that does need your sole attention.

Micro-managing is another way of saying you have no faith or trust in those around you. It means you don’t think anyone else can accomplish what needs to be done, except you. Micro-managing is a concept of ego and arrogance. It’s not the action of a good manager.

Those around you may do things a little differently than you would, but that doesn’t make their way wrong or ineffective. Trust those who can and are willing to help you out. You put them in the position to be part of your world, or part of your team. So give them the respect to do the job, to do it well and to get it done. Continue reading

Who Are The Pagans

The Wise Old Wolf

We’re The Other People

Many years ago a friend sent me an article that explains who we pagans are, from the very beginning of time. Well, time as it relates to Christians anyway.

The article was originally published in a periodical from Church Of All Worlds called “Green Egg“, years ago. The magazine isn’t published any longer, but the Church still exists. I am very fond of this article and when I originally went looking for it, I could only find it in Google’s cached pages. But it doesn’t even exist there any longer.

The article was written by Oberon Zell from Church of all Worlds. It is way too good to let his story fade into the ether of the internet. In 1999 I attained permission to reprint the article as long as I made sure I gave the credit to Oberon. Well of course, and gladly so!

The story shares some important insight into the origins of Earth and formation of life. Using the Bible itself to explain and discuss the origins of Pagans from the Christian perspective. Come take a look, you might discover something you never thought of and expand your view about the Other People. Continue reading

Metaphysics: The Basics of Paganism

CommunicationThe Essence of Metaphysics

Recently I had the opportunity to speak with some other spiritual and metaphysical authors. The majority spoke of Metaphysics from a New Age, New Thought and Unitarian perspective. At some point I said “Well Metaphysics is pagan, and not based on Abrahamic doctrine” which to some degree all of these spiritual paths hold a connection to.  ..uh oh.. did I start something!!

Thankfully most of the people, ok, there were about 14 people in this conversation and only 2 seemed offended by my comment. Others looked confused and question my claim. Others were curious and asked what I meant. So I began to explain.

While we associate the writings of Metaphysics with Aristotle, he didn’t create the concept nor was he the only one writing about it. You can read more about this in my book Pagan Metaphysics 101. But the early cultures around the globe were all pagan. Which seems to have come as a surprise to some people. They actually believed the society that gave us the Great Greek Philosophers were following early Christian teachings.

It was hard letting them down and putting a few facts into their assumptions, but it had to be done. Pythagoras established the Pythagoras Brotherhood (a philosophical society that discussed life, the universe, morals and much more.) in 530B.C. That would be 30years before the completed Hebrew Manuscripts. And Pythagoras is said to have created this Brotherhood late in his life, about the time he was 50 years old. So presumably the concepts within metaphysics were part of his life and understanding long before he established the brotherhood. “Metaphysics” was coined in late 300’s B.C. by Aristotle. It wasn’t until 200 B.C. when the completion of the Septuagint Greek Manuscripts were completed. These manuscripts contain The 39 Old Testament Books AND 14 Apocrypha Books of the earliest version of the Torah. This happened nearly 100 years after Aristotle penned his writings. Say what?!
