Decoration Day
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day.

Regardless of the exact date or location of its origins, one thing is clear – Memorial Day was borne out of the Civil War and a desire to honor our dead. It was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11. “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” he proclaimed.

The date of Decoration Day, as he called it, was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle.

07/01 Our Topic: Fakes, Frauds and Hoaxes
We had technical issues last Monday and 20min into the broadcast we finally made it on air. We postponed our topic as a result and held a free-form show!  Tonight we’ll take up the topic of fakes and frauds.

The existence of fakes, frauds and hoaxes are three aspects we can be sure exists within the paranormal world. Fraudulent psychics, fake paranormal activities, and hoax activities are part of history to both individuals and communities the world over. What are the dangers and consequences to purporting these activities? How can you protect yourself against becoming one of the many victims?

We Join The Celebration Of Equality

Love Is Love

Love Triumphs All

Today the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA, stating it discriminated against same-sex couples.

Then they declined to rule on California’s Proposition 8 which prohibits same-sex marriage, leaving in place a lower court’s decision that struck-down the ban.

From a pagan perspective:
It is important to note that Pagan Metaphysics strives for peace and harmony within the Divine Universe and within the individual being. Through mutual respect and acceptance we can discover and acquire peace for all and create a world that is harmonious for everyone. But this approach does not take away the choices of individuals to direct their own lives with free will and the acceptance of the consequences of those choices. ~ an excerpt from Pagans and Politics.

Everyone here at Spring’s Haven and Springwolf Reflections share in the excitement and celebration of all our Gay and Lesbian friends. Continue reading

The Challenges We Face In Life

Why Does “God” Test Us?

Recently in a forum of Metaphysical Ministers this question was posted.

Does anyone in our group believe that God tests us, or tests the strength of our faith?
Rev.R.M.

The question isn’t an uncommon one. Nor is it one that is accepted on blind faith by Ministers. There are many answers and perspectives of course, because we all have a different way of looking at spiritual belief and practice. A Christian may say “Yes, God may test your faith and devotion of service to his teachings by placing challenges upon your path”. Unitarians might say “No, God doesn’t set up challenges to test our faith. But we set up problems in our lives to learn lessons”.

The wonderful Metaphysical Ministers within this group have similar perspectives to my first response. But when asked this question I have two perspectives to reply to this. Continue reading

The Ænigma Project – Mondays 9 PM EST

The Ænigma Project is a discussion group focused on the realm of the supernatural, paranormal and mysterious events that sometimes take place in our lives. Through multiple view points and experiences, we seek to enlighten our listeners and elucidate that which has become hidden beneath the many layers of misunderstanding and fear.

06/10 Our Topic: Dyatlov Pass Incident –
On the night of February 2, 1959, in the northern Ural mountains lies the Dyatlov’s Pass. The Pass is nestled in the east shoulder of the mountain Kholat Syakhl (an old Mansi language name, meaning Mountain of the Dead). 10 cross country skiers organized a trek across the mountain and through the pass. But only 1 returned alive. What happened to the other 9? Why did they leave shoes behind in their tents during the depths of winter? Were the missing skier’s bodies actually found with radiation burns, crushed internal injuries, and one with a missing tongue? What really happened to these unfortunate skiers who came up missing from their camp site?

Dyatlov Memorial

We have been trying to discuss this mystery for 2 weeks, but each time something strange has occurred and kept us from getting on the air. If you believe that everything happens for a reason, then what is behind this story that doesn’t want to be told? Find out if we make it on air tonight…or will there be another strange and unusual incident again?

Belief vs Knowledge

Wise Old Wolf

The Wise Old Wolf

How Wisdom Is Created

Blind faith is something we teach against in most pagan circles. Simply because someone else said this is true, or that is fact doesn’t make it real or accurate. Simply because something comes from old knowledge or understandings doesn’t mean it’s valid today.

Think about what people were sure of 1,000 or 1,500 years ago. Everyone believed the Earth was flat and if you sailed to far, you’d fall off the world. Of course today we know how silly that is. Image 1,000 years from now and wonder what is it that we’re sure about today that will be completely invalid in the future.

Blind faith doesn’t teach, it doesn’t inspire, it doesn’t allow an individual to experience, expand or grow. We cannot limit our experience in life by what we believe we know to be true. We must put our beliefs to the test.

“The word ‘belief’ is a difficult thing for me. I don’t believe. I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis. Either I know a thing, and then I know it- I don’t need to believe it.” ~ Carl Jung

But you cannot prove blind faith or belief, nor claim it to be true or accurate. That’s the whole point of belief. You either believe it or you don’t. You can share the same concepts of belief with others. But every person may have tiny little differences in how they apply those beliefs to life and the situations around them. So they’re never exactly the same. But why? Continue reading
