I realize some people still equate witches with evil people who sacrifice animals.

From Facebook 😛

Not us!

This is the first page of  my Book of Shadows started in 1983

My Book of Shadows

“Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfil

An it harm NONE

Do what thou will”

The concept that witches were evil began at the inquisition when the Church of Rome was trying to get rid of  the Old Religion and the women herbalists.

witch hunts

The Satanists, who we are sometimes equated with, got their ideas from Malleus Maleficarum, which is about  how to torture people to get them to say they are witches and not about witchcraft as it says if you Google!

Our rituals are similar to American Indian rituals –at least the one I am aware of, which is Sioux tradition.


I will not kill anything — Not spiders: mice: insects: trees –

I believe everything that exists has consciousness and deserves respect.

I have cried on many occasions because I haven’t been able to save a bird: animal or  reptile that had been  hit by a car – at least I move them off the road so that they are not continuously run over.

I get upset when moths throw themselves at the window to get to the light.

This doesn’t mean there are not people out there calling themselves witches and killing animals.

Male witches are called witches,

so if someone claims to be a warlock be suspicious.


The following words had different meanings once:

Wicca meant wise or to bend

Heathen = dweller on the heath

Pagan = village dweller

Weird = magic

Sinister = left-handed


Blessed be

and be kind to non humans

Me at the first Australian Wiccan conference


To follow my last blog

(Zero Population Growth)– saying

humans are making all life extinct.

I believe we will heal the ecology

It was a “clairvoyant flash”

But it had what I am only able to call an emotional content (as our language doesn’t have the words)

Bottom line = it felt true


Goodonya humans



On my usual save the ecology soap box

taken on Kangaroo Island last century

The population constantly increasing:

we are 7.8 billion and increasing.

Our cultural norms are based on the premise that humans are the only species that matter.

Hence people do so much damage to other life forms every day just keeping “their” homes and gardens tidy.

Humans are encouraged to breed and in this country they are rewarded to do so.

Realestate development wipes out vegetation

hence homes and food for other life forms.

We  are told to clear trees in case of fires:

Trees don’t light fires humans do.

How many trees have you seen walking around with cigarette lighters.

my place

Bushfires upset me: because I cannot help the flora and fauna:

But at least I can post this:

Please send healing: nourishment: fulfilment: shelter and empowerment to all non human life forms.

Both psychologically , sociologically and magically it will have an affect.

I admire people that choose not to have children or to adopt.

Zero population doesn’t mean no children.

I have noticed throughout my life that the people who would make excellent parents cannot have  children and often those who can have children don’t care about them.


Enjoy your day

In the seventies when I first attended Spiritualist groups the first time someone supposedly went into trance it was so fake I never went back.

But instead of just giving up I was able to get into a Spiritualist psychic development group run by a lady by the name of Stella.

(I do not consider it unethical giving her name:

she died in 1982

I was working in the ward she was in when she died)

I have always called her my mentor.

The first time Stella went into trance I saw her face change to a Mongolian looking man.

I said nothing but the man next to me described exactly what I saw after the trance was over.

Stella had a Siamese cat who sat with the psychic development group.

I noticed in future sessions that if someone was in genuine trance the cat would sit upright and pay attention. If it was fake the cat would not be interested.

There was one lady in Stella’s classes that went into genuine “trance”.

Her face changed to an American Indian Sharman. I could see “him” holding what looked like a rattle. And of course, the cat paid attention.

I have only agreed to try chance twice:

My guide opened by saying what sounded like “shalom”

I thought “That’s Jewish”

But may be the word had an Egyptian equivalent?

I felt something on my face: the best analogy is the air pressure around my face and head felt heavier:

I was not successful at direct channeling. There was no way I would fake it.

I felt the urge to smile and look around at the people in the room with my eyes shut.

I explained that I was aware of my guide’s presence but that he was speaking to me not through me.

My guide told me that he had known everyone in this room before.

He also showed each one in another life:

The man to my right was dressed in furs and sitting in a high back chair that looked like a throne.

I got an “Anglo” as in a descendent of the Vikings.

No one in the psychic development group was saying anything although I had asked them to ask questions.

My guide directed my attention to a young lady sitting opposite me.

Telling me me she had a question. But she wasn’t asking a question.

He told me the answer to her question.

I gave each person in the room the messages that I had been told and explained what I saw.

I actually had numerous visuals; many of buildings, which I presumed were in ancient Egypt.

As always with clairvoyance these visuals flashed in a fraction of a second.

The young lady that my guide had told me had a question. Described seeing my face change and seeing my guide.

The young lady also told me that when she saw him, she mentally asked a question which I had answered when I gave the messages.

The guide I have been aware of since I started with the spiritual groups has given me proof of who he is.

His name fits his heritage:

He was nubian Egyptian:

His “tribe” conquered Egypt but in what would be called “Egyptian pre history”.

I checked information in the library.

He took me on astral journeys with him in his life time.

In one we were in an Egyptian reed canoe. Which I later checked in the library because my idea of Egypt came from the movie “Cleopatra” and I was expecting lavish barges.

I brought myself out of this “astral journey?” because it was too violent for me. We were in a battle zone.

 One thing that really amazed me was:

back in the seventies pyramid power was a fad.

I asked my guide about pyramids. He told me

that pyramids refract electromagnetic waves as a prism refracts light.

I had no idea what electromagnetic waves were and in the nineteen seventies it was difficult to find information.

I think it was the late Wayne Dyer that said most writing is channelled.

Some of the information for my sci fi short story

particularly about the Ophiuchus constellation

may have been “channelled” because I got this information late last century:

pre internet and”Google”

And I saw the beings that I called Nirahns in a meditation:

(It was a Melchizedek translocation mediation — I think we were supposed to “translocate” on this planet 😛

but I “asked” to go to the Ophiuchus system.)

Enoy your day


Guessing many bloggers write books

And can relate to having written something then

have someone else come up with the same idea

I don’t claim to be good at writing

 but it is what I love to do.

Many people have told me I should paint after seeing one painting I painted decades ago.

But I love to write.

Last  century the first story I wrote was very similar to Stargate SG-1

My “villain” was even called Apophis.

I wrote it in 1995

I didn’t even attempt to set it out for publishing.

In 2003 I wrote a sci fi where most of the humans were exterminated by nanites.

Then came the remake of “The Day the Earth Stood Still”

My story was different in that the nanites were programmed to only eliminate humans that way other lifeforms would survive and flourish.

Didn’t publish.

I published a short sci  fi story as an E book on Amazon beginning of April 2017:
  removed it

And then republished it under a different title.

I have been writing the “sequell” to this and then scrapping it and starting again for some time.

At least I enjoy doing it and gives me something to do when am in too much pain to move around.

I tend not to promote my non fiction book

presuming people wont like it

although it is well written

in the sense that it was set it out properly with a story outline etc

Where as the non fiction I just wrote them out in one or two sittings.

The second part of”The Clairvoyant Experiences of a Sceptic”

I wrote as therapy and had not intended to include.

It wasn’t included in the original l publication.

It is also badly written because I was shaking and couldn’t concentrate properly while writing and trying to proofread it.

The following book I hope to help those who wish to develop their clairvoyant abilities.

In “The Clairvoyant Experiences of A Sceptic” I told a few of my clairvoyant experiences.

Listening to others similar stories made me realize that

it is so much better if you can have these experiences first hand.



Even though we are no longer in lock down herewith some meditations that you may like


I recorded Creative Consciousness meditation earlier this century at the request of a psychic development group that I was running at the time.

TREE MEDITATION paraphrased from Mother Wit by Diane Mariechild —- it is a great book if you can find it.

Am sure you are better at finding things on Google etc than me 😛 — I couldn’t find it.


Also from Mother Wit

Past life regression

Blessed be

and be kind to non humans


One of the few magpies that still come here (despite the crows and ibis) has been singing since early morning—at first I thought he wanted feeding but his partner is no where to be seen (so am guessing she died)

Similar happen years ago when there were more magpies and less humans:

I went looking and found the mapies’ partner dead on the road.

I am in tears:

I feel the despair:

i have always been abused and ridiculed for this.

In recent years since someone suggested that I was an empath I know people who feel the same.

These two babies were “road kill” a few days after the photo was taken

enjoy your day

For tree lovers there is an audio meditation to link with a tree.

A wise friend posted on Facebook:-

“ humans are intrinsically social creatures and removal from others is used as a form of torture.  Also touch is a basic human need..(babies will die if left untouched)”

I remember learning this when I studied psychology.

if you haven’t a human or a  pet to hug why not hug a tree 😀

Find a tree that you can sit near and be quiet enough for meditation.


The following is a tree meditation

This is para phrased from “Mother Wit”

 by Diane Mariechild

hers was a plant meditation

Sadly I no longer have pets to hug 😦

love them and miss them

Enjoy your day


I promised staff at South Coast District Hospital (which is in Victor Harbor South Australia) that I would say how good they were on Facebook –and I did:

Decided to blog this as well.

Picture shows my usual attitude to western medicine.

from Facebook

—At 1600 hours Saturday 14/11 My doctor phoned having received some results from the blood test I had Saturday  morning:

 He said he  was sending me to South Coast Hospital by ambulance:

 I was also told that there would not be lights or sirens

but there was—-

 After the ambulance staff did their “obs” they treated me like I was having an heart attack –

 They were skilled at their job and had a great sense of humour:

Once at the hospital

both the RN, Doctor and EN introduced themselves —

 I was impressed by their manner and attitude –

I was treated with respect:

Given all information  about what tests were being done and why,

 as well as the results.

I believe one of the reasons for this is South Coast is a country hospital.

I worked in a major  city hospital in the 1980s

on one occasion I was told off by the charge nurse for spoiling patients.

All I was doing was treating them as people




I do not get any scam phone calls nor telemarketers any more

“Believe in the possibility of what you want to achieve:
