I decided I need a place to record my magickal musings – I have a private Book of Shadows, but I share with my “tribe” often, so an easily accessible online page seemed like the place to record these nuggets of wisdom as I learn them. An online, share-able magickal journal, if you will. With the added bonus of being searchable – the worst part of paper journals is flipping through 75 pages to find that ONE Beltane ritual you wrote down two years ago…
Magick? Ritual? I can see the scowls on some faces now. No matter.
I am what you’d called a Pagan Pantheist. Or maybe a Pagan Panentheist. Honestly, I am still trying to decide. I go back and forth, and expect that one day I will suddenly KNOW, deep down, which I resonate more with. In the meantime, it doesn’t matter – this small point does not affect my daily life in any noticeable way.

I am a Pagan (root of the word meaning rustic, country dwellers) because I find the Divine in nature, and believe any number of archetypes can be powerfully used to invoke the sacred within ourselves. One Source, but many, many manifestations of it – and any can be considered sacred and powerful. Gods, Goddesses, trees, rocks, vibrations and sounds, magnificent locations, animals, saints…the list goes on. (What’s powerful for you?)
I’ve found a lot of excellent blogs, videos, and books as I study the path of spirit. My only wish is that they might occasionally be divided into smaller, more mentally-digestable chunks of information. If something is connected to spirit or myth, I often have to let it sink in for a while before moving to the next part. So, here, we will have pagan pantheist pieces. Literally. Small, easy pieces.
