Sacred Space, Tarot, and Your Magical Practice by Sasha Graham

Magickal Tools

Do you recall the first time you cast a solitary spell? A real spell. Do you remember the moment when you took power into your own hands, lit flickering candles, burned tendrils of incense, called to the corners, created sacred space, and invoked your intention to manifest in the universe? It was memorable, wasn’t it? Like a teenager fumbling through the loss of virginity, there was likely an awkward reference back to the grimoire you were using, a bumbling pause to find right words, the correct order, or the proper invocation. Your magical results were likely surprising and unexpected, as the best things in life should be. Our desires often… Read More

Animals. We share our world with them, we have them as pets, and they can be a source of comfort and love. Animals can also be spiritual guides for us during times of need or to help us grow on our spiritual path. I call them energy animals because I work with energy and animal frequency, but they’re also known as totems, spirit animals, power animals, familiars, and animal spirit guides. All of these terms describe animals that guide, teach, and connect with you in order to deliver messages from the spiritual realm that you need to know at specific points in your life and on your path. Some appear… Read More

Put Purpose into Raising Your Frequency by Melissa Alvarez

Silhouette of a man and the Sun

I’d never really put much thought into how I could effectively raise my frequency, the spiritual energy of my personal vibration, or why I should even attempt to do it until I began to notice a correlation between my frequency and the positive or negative things happening in my life. I became aware that a higher inner frequency resulted in more positivity in my life, and lower frequencies resulted in stressful, negative situations, so I began to focus on raising my frequency with purpose. The ultimate goal in raising frequency is to operate at a high level of vibration while still being able to function well at those higher vibrations… Read More

Stay in the Moment with Tom Sterner

Clock face

Q. What inspired you to write Fully Engaged? A. In 2012 New World Library published the second edition of my first book The Practicing Mind. In that book I discussed what I had learned through many years of studying both Eastern thought and modern sports psychology. The main reason I had put so much time into this study was a quest to solve my own struggle with lack of discipline and impatience about reaching my goals. One of the things that fascinated me was the fact that both entities had come to the same conclusion about how we accomplish the most with the least amount of effort, in the least… Read More

Discover the Life You Were Born to Live by Chetan Parkyn

Collage of colours and shapes

I can remember quite clearly a moment in my life when I realized nothing made sense to me, that everything I had done and was doing seemed out of tune, even meaningless. I was sitting alone at a campfire in the shelter of a small group of pine trees in the highlands of Kenya, enjoying the first opportunity to be by myself in over a year. My father had died eighteen months before, and I knew I had not come to terms with his passing, especially considering how I had busied myself in all kinds of intense activities to avoid acknowledging my thoughts and feelings. In the light of his… Read More
