The Weekly Witch Review #102 : Animism, Archeology Of The Undead, Pretty Bohemian Style & More!

TGiF Witches...

Welcome to the latest edition of "The Weekly Witch Review", a kickass guide to all things new & exciting (or at least new & exciting to me) on the wonderfully wacky world wide web... 



The Other Side Of The Hedge : Animism & Healing

FYi : Magick with a K did not start with Aleister Crowley, and the use of this spelling can be found in books dating back to the 1700s.

LOVES LOVES LOVES this dreamy bohemian pad...


I know that I’ve already shared this artist’s work, but I was really studying/tripping out on it one night this week & was all like “F#CK it, I’m sharing it again!” She amazes me…

Archeology of The Undead

How Modern Women Are Reclaiming The Occult : "At its core, the occult is about empowerment and freedom."

7 Traits of Hunter-Gatherer Religiosity : animism, belief in an afterlife, shamanism, ancestor worship, high gods, and worship of ancestors or high gods who are active in human affairs.

Is consciousness really such a riddle? We know what conscious experience is because the having is the knowing: Having conscious experience is knowing what it is. You don’t have to think about it (it’s really much better not to). You just have to have it.

Drowned worlds : Egypt's lost cities

Wanna know why I keep posting pics of Gucci's latest collection here, there & everywhere? Because it's magickally delicious, hippie witchy, totem trippy awesomeness. That's why...


Why Did the Genetic Code of All Life on Earth Suddenly Stop Evolving?

Just so ya know, Botox does more than create an unnaturally smooth forehead.

The Calling : Your calling may arrive early in life. Or it may come late.  But when it comes, there will be no denying it. You’ll have to answer it. You just have to.

Rewriting The Script For Women In Movies : Linda Woolverton talks about how she landed a career at Disney- where she set out to change the nature of the victim heroine.

NOTES FOR THE ROAD... To find yourself you must lose yourself. The One you are seeking is not inside you. You are inside the One. To be present in every time you must be here, now. Now is the center of all times...

Spiritual Maturity : The Only Person You Can Control Is Yourself...



O.P.S. = Other People’s Shit…

Other People's Shit =  shadow stuff, anger issues, neediness, martyrdom, greed, inappropriate demands, rudeness, crudeness & all kinds of attitudeness...

You have two choices when you encounter O.P.S. :

1. You can make it all about YOU.

or

2. You can simply say to yourself, "that is so not mine & I am not giving even one second of head space to that".

And- I’m not saying either approach is better, because it really depends on the situation and what kind of energy you feel like investing in it.

In fact, both options are neutral and either can be "good" or "bad".

For instance, going for option #2 and putting that shit out of sight-out of mind is often seen as a hallmark of maturity, which it often is.

However, it could also be a sign of ignorance and an attempt at spiritual bypass, which means that that particular brand of O.P.S. will be making a repeat performance in no time. And- it will continue to do so until you heed the message that life is trying to show you something important about yourself.

Conversely, let's say you decide to go for Door #1 and make it all about you.

In that case, you can move right into being offended, reacting in anger or fear or sadness. You can make a damn fool of yourself, if you wanna...

OR- you can take it to your journal or even just give yourself a brief moment of contemplation to explore the ways that O.P.S. is actually reflecting something active in your own system. It doesn't have to be an exact match. In fact- it's often not.

For example : A verbally abusive boss doesn't necessarily reflect the fact that you are verbally abusive. It could instead reflect back at you the negative self-dialog going on in your head and the need to write a new script.

Additionally- if you choose to make it all about you, you could also use the situation as a launch into setting a new standard for what kind of behavior you will and will not accept in your relationships. It could be an excellent opportunity to set some strong, healthy boundaries and to practice saying "No."

And I say this is a choice, but really- for many of us- before we reach a certain level of self awareness- it’s not. That’s why things like shadow work, introspective journaling and meditation can be so awesome.

Once you do reach a certain level of spiritual maturity- you DO have a choice and can make it about you in a way that is empowering. What could be more magickal than that?


The Spiritually Mature Witch : 5 Keys To Unlocking Your Personal Power is an AWESOME workbook for anyone looking to court spiritual maturity and on-the-go magick that actually works to transform the experiences of your life into a channel for personal power...

The Gypsy-Wytch Diaries : Just when it seemed I'd begun to succeed at surviving in the real world, a beautiful thing happened... I failed. Magick has a funny way of calling us back when we begin to lose our way, and I remembered that I was never meant to "survive in the real world". I was always meant to thrive in a world of enchantment...
