The Nature of All Things

Dennis and I are at the Celebrations Fair in Denver at the Merchandise Mart this weekend and I figured I'd pop a bit out here on spirits and their nature. We work with a great many spirits at Arcanus and getting to know them and how to work with them can be a bit daunting to some. I hope you find the below useful and hope to see you at the fair. 

The Nature Of All Things - 

In the worlds, all things have spirit. Sprites, fairies, and other myriad creatures do exist within the confines of their own existence. At times, there are humans that see these beings. Generally it is at times of stress or “in between” states of consciousness. This is where we get the stories of sightings that have permeated the mythological lexicon over the centuries.
Witches, being between the worlds, tend to see these beings and interact with them on a regular basis. The wights of a place can be called upon in times of need and to gather power for spells. Offerings are placed in order to gather connections with these wonderful creatures. At times, they can be dangerous, depending on the reason and attitude when calling upon them. Therefore it behooves the witch to think of these beings as also children of the Great Mother and All Father. Kin, if you will, since they are from the same pool of energy that hath formed them.

Now to animal energies. Animal spirits can be called upon to empower or teach the witch. The thousands of years of shamanic practice have proven the efficacy of this tradition. By getting in tune with the spirit of say the Crocodile, the witch can develop new wisdom among many other things attributed to the Crocodile teacher. The familiar is part of this secret teaching wisdom. They can use their animal powers to enhance spells and help to secure knowledge for the witch. This is a body of knowledge that can take years or even a lifetime to study. For our purposes, knowing the ways of the animal and how to call can be enough. Journeying with a totem can open up whole new vistas of information. Following is a technique that the witch can use to facilitate this communication -

Exercise – In a quiet and safe location, perform the sphere exercise found in earlier postings of this blog to focus and empower you. Once ready, smudge your person and the area with sage. This will cleanse the area and your own energies of confusing remnants of impressions left over from your day or previous workings. Settle yourself into a comfortable position. Close your eyes and take a deep breath to prepare for the journey. As is typical of this sort of journeying, you will visualize a natural hole in the ground or tree and allow yourself to follow it down into the other realms. I generally find a cave to be the most efficacious for me, but what pleases you will be of your own choosing. Once you find yourself descended into the other realm, put the desire into the ether that you wish to meet your personal totem. After a short while, you should encounter the animal that is most prevalent to you. Allow impressions to materialize and make note of any communication that you receive. When you are ready to return, take a deep breath and visualize yourself traveling back up through the tunnel until you reach your level of awareness. Take another deep breath to focus and end the session. You may want to eat something to help ground yourself in this plane.

That's it for now.. 

Until next time.....

The Gates of Hell Part 1

Over the years, if you are in the community, you tend to hear tales of places that some claim to be the gateways to "hell". Wonderful vacation spots of the damned, and shunned by those not wishing to lose their souls and spend an eternity burning in lakes of fire. In this post, I thought I would take a brief look at these locations. This is wonderful fun and eye opening as to how rumour becomes legend and legend sometimes comes back around as fact in the minds of the faithful. I will give brief snippets of these places over the next few weeks and maybe you may even be lucky enough to visit some... Soul intact, of course. So lets begin...

The first location that we will examine is an interesting little spot located in Kansas. Yes, I know, many have said "How do you break hell down into just one place in Kansas?". But, trust me on this, there is one spot in particular that has been reported to be the very gateway to the hellish realms. The place of mention is none other than Stull, Kansas.
The legend has it that there is a stairway that leads down into the bowels of the earth and into the kingdom of Satan himself. How it came to this illustrious position has a few explanations. One is that a child was burned to death by his father. This was said to be accidental, however the devil may have made him do it. Who's to say. Another is that a man was found hanging from a tree. Most likely the victim of the denizens of hell, or so it is believed. And apparently there is the church that was crumbling and gave off an evil vibe. Whatever the reason for this place being considered a gateway to hell, it had an affect upon none other than The Pope. Rumour has it that in his trip to the US, he made his flight reroute around the location of Stull. The truth of why he did this is not very forthcoming, but the legend stands. So even "His Holiness" feels the evil from this place and took precautions to avoid the land of demons.

Well that is it for now.. I will come back later with more locations of Hells own Autobahn.

Until next time......
