If you are, or ever have been, an Evangelical Christian, at some point you've probably been told that spirit guides/spirit helpers and communicating with the dead are unbiblical. You may have also been told that the dead folks and spirit guides that people claim to be in contact with are actually demons. I was content … Continue reading Biblical Support for Spirit Guides and Communicating with the Dead
It is long past time to structure our human activities around the naturally fluctuating cycles and rhythms of women and nature.
I have tried to fit into the countless boxes of others' experiences. I have divided myself into countless pieces that would fit into those countless boxes. All of me will not fit into someone else's box. So I cut off the small part that will… …over and over again, with each small box of someone … Continue reading The Whole Self
Something that helps me when I start drifting away from myself and getting too caught up in other people is to remind myself of these two things: 1. My needs/boundaries/experiences are valid even if others do not understand, agree with, or respect them. 2.

Three of my four children were conceived during a first quarter moon phase, the same moon phase at the time of my birth.
I've been rather quiet on the blog lately, but don't worry... I'm working on several posts right now. It was a pretty rough autumn and I'm still trying to recover, more or less. But I've finally been able to integrate some things in my system this month and feel the familiar urge to write and … Continue reading An update before I update
Before we went to the river walk yesterday, I was imagining just how great it would be if I could find some turkey feathers on the walk (I especially love incorporating feathers into my artwork). I've only found two turkey feathers during my countless walks in my 9 years in Maine. So I didn't think … Continue reading Divine Provision or a Divine Test? Wrestling with Ethics and Choosing Gratitude
This morning I woke up with an old Avril Lavigne song stuck in my head. Appropriate, since I had just dreamed about going back to middle school, and I listened to Lavigne's freshman album Let Go on repeat when I was in 8th grade. I'm used to dreaming of going back to high school. It's … Continue reading Avril Lavigne and Me: Thoughts on Authenticity
