Apologies

Sorry about the scrambled post on woowoo earlier. I was uploading from a public wifi and it’s brains seem to have been mixed up and doubled in parts. I don’t know if the fact that it’s 103 degrees here has anything to do with it or not, but I think I fixed most if it. Maybe I can go luxuriate in Starbucks tomorrow with a trente sized ice tea and check it again

If you are homophobic – please take your ass somewhere else!

Just a not too friendly FYI: If you are homophobic, please do not follow me. I don’t need followers that badly that I need bigots and hate mongers. So GO AWAY!

There is absolutely no good reason for homophobia except for the prejudice. I repeat there is no justifiable reason for fear of gays and lesbians except that you are a regressive, troglodyte, especially if you call yourself a pagan. I do know some big name pagans that are but there is no excuse for it other than they are idiots. (I know they are because these particular BNP’s have said it to my face.)

So if you are anti gay in anyway, lesbiphobic or any other variety of hater of people who are different from your heterosexual self. Get lost! I mean it.

I’m quite clear on my About page. I’m a lesbian. I’m a dyke. I’m a pagan. I’m a Druid. I’m Wiccan. If any of those is not your cup of tea. Please leave! I know I have evangelical followers because I read all your About pages about how much you love your Jesus. Not a fan of the zombie Jesus so why an evangelical would follow me I have no clue. Most of the Christians that I know as friends who follow me are open-minded loving Christians not of the evangelical variety and I love them dearly and most of them, hopefully know that I respect them greatly. Quite, frankly, most of the people I know who have to go around telling people about Jesus are the least Christian of the White Christ’s followers. I have no clue why they go where they know they aren’t wanted. Like the idiots who ring the doorbuzzer at 7 on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Or the asshats at the bus stop who harass people until they can escape on a bus, any bus, going anywhere.

Do you seriously think that anyone can live in the US and not know about your Jesus? Are you really that stupid?

Anyway, sorry for the blast. My tooth broke and I can’t get into the dentist until Thursday. But as far as the homophobes who “I’m following You” email contains the homophobic bullshit. Please leave. I mean you, Aquarianmist. I don’t need a bigot for a follower.

And a point of education. Human beings are animals and mammals and are just one of the many animals that exhibit same sex relationships. It is not an “unnatural state” . It exists in nature and we are born this way. There is a colony of lesbian seagull off the coast here in California on Anancapa Island for one example. We’ve had gay people traceable on my family tree that we know of to the mid 1800’s and so I think it must go much farther back and my gay siblings and I did not know this before we came out, only after my brother and I came out independently of each other. So go be your asshat self somewhere else.

 

and PS: Most people that are rabidly homophobic are afraid they are gay themselves and need to just come out and deal with it.

 

 

 

 

What’s with all the talk about the woo woo?

There has been a lot of yacking lately in the blogosphere about “woo” for the record it was originally called “woo woo”. Just saying, if you are going to call the otherwordly factor woo, at least get it right.

 

Anyway, I don’t think that it’s something you go courting unless you are crazy. It’s going to happen anyway and you best be prepared for when it does or it’s going to scare the bejeebers out of you and you can get badly mentally injured.

 

I suggest that if you are new to the Craft you work on the fundamentals of praxis before you get yourself into something that may be difficult to get out of if you are alone.

 

  • Work on meditation and calming techniques. Learn them well.
  • Work on grounding and centering, particularly the tree grounding and centering because we all know what trees look like and we can with practice apply it immediately.
  • Work on your protection and armouring techniques. Know who to ward yourself. You can bring things home you do not want in your house.

 

I’m sure some of the youngun’s reading this think I’m just an old fart who doesn’t want you to have any fun. Trust me, the woo woo will come when you least expect it and when you may be least able to deal with it. If you have practiced the basics you won’t be caught off guard and vulnerable.

 

You can go all your life in diligent pagan practices and never have a woo woo experience and that is fine. There is no requirement that you work on the astral or call your ancestors into circle or have a spirit guide and don’t let anyone tell you any different. If they do they don’t have a clue what they are talking about and are not someone you should be listening to or practicing with. Follow your own path. Don’t worry about the nut jobs courting things they really know nothing about. And if that offends someone so what!

 

I also think it’s pretty stupid to think you have a “godphone”, another idiotic term. You either hear the gods or you don’t. No big deal. I imagine the average Roman or Greek or any other ancient person rarely if ever heard their deity and they were probably grateful for it. They left that to the professional priests and priestesses. It’s uncomfortable to be a Sybil and sit on a three legged stool stoned all the time. What makes you think you are so special that you can bypass the hard work and go right to the “fun” stuff. Druids studied for 19 years before they were allowed out years in this practice I have just scratched the surface of what is possible. And it will always be so. There is always more to learn.  

 

News Flash: We aren’t all special. We don’t hear our deities every day. We’re lucky if it’s once a year. Having your head filled with someone a lot bigger than you is painful. I can see a tree and not try to contact the spirit of the tree every time I see it. They deserve a little peace too. And if you think any different you will find very quickly YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL. No one who is honest is and you are on a huge ego trip and someone very shortly will be around to kick your butt.
