Letting Go Meditation

Letting Go Of The Past & Forgiveness of Self

If you feel as though you’re carrying baggage around on your shoulders, your half way to letting go. In order to resolve issues or problems in your life, you must go through the process of Acknowledgment, Acceptance, Forgiveness, Action and Letting Go. Acknowledgment and acceptance is often the easy steps to getting rid of unwanted emotional baggage.

The forgiveness, action and letting go are the hard parts. But through inner reflection, counseling and meditation, you can learn to forgive and let go. Sometimes forgiving and letting go on a spiritual level can help you release the pain and emotional hurt you feel on a physical level as well. Keep in mind that “Forgiveness isn’t for the other person or situation, it’s for YOU and it’s about healing yourself.” Continue reading

Meditation Guides

What is Meditation?
Prayer allows you to talk to the Divine and petition for assistance. Meditation allows you to become one with the Divine and discover the divine within your inner being.

Meditation has been practiced around the world in every known religion, from Buddhism to Christianity. Many people have meditated for spiritual communication, personal fulfillment, as a form of worship or just to relax and relieve stress. During this century western societies have begun to recognize the benefits of meditation.

There are numerous forms of meditation techniques around the world. If one doesn’t work for you, don’t get discouraged. Try another method. This is one of those things where you simply need to keep going until you find the method that works for you. The method I teach is usually called Free-Form, there’s no mantra, no drumming or specific stance or posture. There’s just you, your mind and learning to relax and go within yourself. If you’d like a step by step process for Free-Form Meditation, you can find my Learning To Meditate here on Reflections. Continue reading

The 13 Full Moons in 2020

The Full Moon

That Means A Blue Moon 

Every month of the year will see a Full Moon. But Blue Moons, when there’s a 2nd full moon in the same month, do not happen all that often. Maybe once a year, or if you’re lucky twice a year. Our last Blue Moon was on Friday December 13th, 2019. Another auspicious event.

For 2020, we’ll only see one Blue Moon on the calendar. But what a night for it to show up! According to the Farmer’s Almanac Moon Calendar,  October will see it’s first full moon on October 1st. And another on Saturday, October 31st, at 10:49am eastern U.S. time.

In the world of Pagan Metaphysics, we call the observance of the Moon, Esbat days, or Ritual days. These phases are where we combine the energy of the Divine Goddess, in this case in the form of Grandmother Moon, with your own energy, for magikal working. Continue reading

Happy Full Moon Friday the 13th, 2019!

The Full MoonMay The Day Bring You Blessings

It is said that wishing on a Full Moon is very magikal. Like any grand parent, Grandmother Moon wants to spoil her daughter’s children.  While Mother Earth is asleep, Grand Mother Moon listens to our prayers and wishes to make our dreams come true.

And it is said that Friday the 13th is a day that brings good luck for transition and change. Breaking down barriers and overcoming struggle, it’s a day to let your magik shine.

When Pagans observe the magik of the moon, the period of each phase usually lasts for 3 days. That’s especially true for a Full Moon. Remember the ancients didn’t have Naval Observatory to pinpoint the exact time of illumination of a full moon. So while we know the full moon for December 2019 occurred Thursday the 12th just after 12am, we can still share her energy today on Friday the 13th.  Tonight the Moon will rise at 6:44pm eastern time.

Use the evening, after moon rise, to bring about Good Luck and positive energy that promotes the success for the change and transition you want most in your life.

Everyone here at Springwolf Reflections wishes you and yours many blessings on this special day that only comes around once in a very rare occasion. Enjoy the day and night with this full moon blessing: Continue reading

Numerology: November 11th, 2019

The Shamanistic Numerology of 11/11/2019

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 in Math and life itself. And it’s a practice that has existed around the world and throughout time.

Numerology has many systems, 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 only 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, numbers are divided into Prime and a Sub-Prime categories. Continue reading

The Ænigma Project PodCast, where we discuss the paranormal, close encounters with the unusual and interactions with the supernatural. We’ll play Truth or Tale and share a little paranormal news now and then too.

All this month we’re covering: Cryptids.
Although Cryptozoology is not considered a real science, it is based on the sciences of Zoology and Paleontology. Many Cryptids probably don’t exist, but there is a high possibility that others do. In fact, National Geographic proved that Hogzilla and the Congo Elephants, two Cryptids thought to be hoaxes or not real, did exist. If more Cryptids do exist, there are scientific evolutionary roots on to how these creatures possibly evolved. – Fandom’s Cryptid Wiki

Eyes of the Hunter

Eyes of the Hunter by Charles Alexander

Here On Springwolf Reflections

As we mentioned last week, we’re making a lot of updates to Springwolf Reflections, now that Spring has retired. We’re in the process of moving articles from the Spring’s Haven Spiritual Center, here to the blog.

This week we’ve added the following to the Blog.

During this process, you may find some links on our posts that no longer work, because they’re still pointing to Spring’s Haven. It’s going to take a while to resolve all those broken links. But we are working on it.

In the meantime, if you find a broken link, try visiting our Reflections A-Z content listing. If we’ve moved the article, you’ll find it there. And you can check out Spring’s many other articles of insight, reflection and inspiration here on Reflections too!

Updates To Reflections

Undergoing Some Renovations

We’re Making Updates To Springwolf’s Reflections

It’s been a long time since we’ve updated our articles here on Reflections. Primarily because of the health issues Spring went through in 2016 and early 2017. During that time, Spring and her family moved from Virginia to the Foothills of North Carolina. She officially retired. And has spent the past two-three years recovering from those crisis events.

One of the things that happened during that time, was closing the spiritual center Spring’s Haven. Which also meant shutting down the center’s website. We’re in the process of moving most of the articles from the Center’s website to the Reflections blog here. That means updating articles, our contents list and more. We hope to have the full transition completed by the end of this year. But it’s a work in process.

We’ve also decided to publish these articles with somewhat random dates spread out over the last two years. Primarily because we’ve lost the original publication dates from the Haven website. And we also thought spreading the articles out might make it easier for those new to Reflections to scan through the blog’s past articles as they scroll down and down. Ok, we don’t have a good reason, we just think it’s a good idea, so we’re going with it. 😉

Oh and we’ve upgraded our WordPress plan to remove some of the annoying ads on our site. What’s left are the ones we get money for displaying, ie: the WordAds. The money they generate help us cover the costs of our blog, so we hope you can over look those as your travel through Reflections.

If you are following our blog and have requested email updates about our new articles, you’ll probably feel over run with notifications. We apologize to anyone who feels overwhelmed by that. There’s not much we can do to temporarily suspend notifications.

We’ll be posting a weekly status of the updates we’re making. So if you’re not receiving notifications, you’ll know what we’ve been doing. This week, we’re starting with the Meditation guides from the Haven. Stay tuned.

Sunset Rituals

Why Pagan Rituals Begin at Sunset

Why are Pagan holidays observed at Sunset on the night before the dates listed in most Pagan calendars? The early calendars used by ancient Pagans were based on lunar cycles, not solar cycles. A day did not begin at midnight or with the sunrise, but rather with the night and moon rise.

To the ancient pagans, night fall was the beginning of the new day and rituals would be celebrated as the Goddess Grand Mother Moon rose in the sky to greet her children.

In ancient times, calendars served as a link between the Divine universe and humankind. Thus calendars were often held as sacred tools or sources of information. These early calendars provided instructions for when to plant, hunt or migrate between cold and warm climates. They were used for divination and prognostication, as well as, for tracking religious cycles to honor the Gods or worship the Divine universe. Continue reading
