    The Day the Earth Ended

    The Day the Earth Ended

    The day had finally come: the apocalypse had finally beset Earth and my children were coming home, those that prayed and asked for forgiveness that is. I watched as the most beautiful of my children laid waste to the lands that had not a month ago bore fruit and sustenance to carry my children into their unknown future.

    What the Witch Is That?

    What the Witch Is That?

    We now live in a world where many are coming out of the "broom closet" so to speak, and as far as society goes, that is probably the one and only thing I love about this age right now. People (not just women) are discovering the Witch within, and their own divine power more and more often these days, and let me tell ya, it's beautiful! So, maybe you're reading this because you are spell-curious, or maybe you are just plain old curious, but either way, I'm here to help. First off, let's start with what Witchcraft is.

    Full Moon in Aries

    Full Moon in Aries

    The full moon in Aries is a special full moon—it kicks off the astrological new year that opens the gate way to our new desires. It is the big bang that life was created from, and it harnesses the power of the creation energy to move us forward and towards our new beginnings. All of this is done with the help of and the spark of Aries. Aries is the first fire sign and it rules the mindset of 0-7 years of age, the age of innocence and childhood. This sign is the sign that is still highly connected to the void of the 5-D and it is able to bring to life the thoughts and visions we have of the 5-D.Â

    The 4 Elements

    The 4 Elements

    Ancient civilizations believed in the four elements in the creation of life. even some belief systems and religions still hold the ideal. Although we have ‘evolved’ and discovered a lot over the years, the idea is still as real now as it was back then. The Chinese use a fifth element of metal, and I am sure there are other religions or civilizations that have other such differences.

    Who Was/Is Jesus?

    Who Was/Is Jesus?

    Just who is Jesus, the one referred to, by some, as, "Christ and savior of the world?" My whole 40 years of life, I have heard different variations of the stories used to describe the man known as Jesus Christ. From being referred to as the Son of God, to an important prophet, to God himself, the references to who Jesus was/is have always grabbed my attention. Upon wanting to build a closer relationship with my heavenly Father, Jehovah (God), I decided to study closer to ensure I better understood Jesus, his life, and his purpose.

    Witches

    Witches

    With Halloween around the corner, I have noticed in this past year, a large fluctuation in the amount of attention being brought to all forms of the occult and witchcraft. Articles and profiles revolving around media influencers, empaths, gurus, sensitives, and sage burners... Every Becky and Tom who has an instagram account can now hold the title of "WITCH" or "BRUJA/BRUJO" proudly under their signature. It is a self raised flag of their own volition and reward without any prior study.

    In the Beginning

    In the Beginning

    Geneticists studying the DNA of today’s world population have discovered that Homo sapiens went nearly extinct sometime between 123,000 and 195,000 years in the past. Since today’s humans show a very low genetic diversity it is most likely that every human alive today can be traced back to the same small group of survivors of that period. According to the research by Curtis W. Marean, a professor of archaeology at the Arizona State University and the associate director of the institute of Human Origins, this small group of survivors, perhaps as small as a few hundred individuals, lived along the south coast of Africa, rich in shellfish and edible vegetation. This group of our human ancestors showed remarkable abilities. They recognized that they could change raw material by heating and could execute a long chain of processes to make the tools they needed. These processes were passed on to the next generations. In a 2010 article in Scientific American, Marean explained how anatomically modern humans survived the MIS 6 glacial stage 123 to 195 thousand years ago, a period during which the human population was limited to only a few hundreds breeding individuals. During this period, sea levels dropped more than a hundred meters and the sloping South African Agulhas Bank was transformed into a plain, on which humans could survive on shellfish and wash-ups from the sea.

    The Book of Mark

    The Book of Mark

    I have always considered myself a spiritual person, never religious though. To me, the words religious and religion sound more descriptive of rituals and traditions; which the Holy Bible speaks against. Being a believer in Jehovah as the true God and Jesus as the Son of God and the Messiah, the Holy Bible is the religious book I choose to live my life by. Where the concept of God intrigues me, the story of Jesus (his life, his purpose, his divinity, and his relationship with God) fills me with fascination.

    Why I Decided to Convert to Judaism

    Why I Decided to Convert to Judaism

    I like to joke and say that I first decided that I wanted to become Jewish after watching an episode of Sex and the City. You know, the one where Charlotte becomes Jewish so that she can marry Harry. So pretty much all of Season Six.
