Welcome! Here's where I share my thoughts on life, being Pagan, and living pagan in today's world.  I hope you find something you like.

 

Raise Your Hands

Raise Your Hands

Bellisana 19/03/2019 0
Have you ever noticed how many people raise their hands when music comes on? People do it in churches all the time, and religions always take it as a form of worship. Some say it’s a sign people are admitting they’re weak before God and cite scriptural references to raising hands in worship. The Knowing Jesus website lists 21 references to raising of hands in worship. However, none of these theories take into consideration that this happens with all music, not just the music of religion. People at concerts raise their hands; people dancing raise their hands. Even babies raise their hands when music comes on. I confess to being one of these pe...

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day

Bellisana 08/02/2019 0
     Can you believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day? I have a theory about why the year gets away from us so quickly. Commercialized holidays. Before one holiday is over, ads for the next one come out. This makes it seem like it’s going faster. In early February, though, we get a whole bunch of things to celebrate at once. Imbolc, Groundhog Day, Lupercalia, the Roman Fertility celebration, and Valentine’s Day all fall within two weeks. When you get down to the history of the holidays, it can get confusing. The legends behind both Imbolc and Lupercalia vary. Both are holidays to welcome spring and enhance love and fertility. However, while Imbolc...

Super Blood Wolf Moon and Lunar Eclipse

Super Blood Wolf Moon and Lunar Eclipse

Bellisana 20/01/2019 0
Tonight we have quite a special event in the sky, and I hope everyone gets a chance to see The Super Blood Wolf Moon. The Blood moon part, although long prophesied biblical precursor for the end of times, naturally has a much less sinister genesis, the blood moon is called that because of the red ring that results when the earth is directly between the Sun and the Moon, and the earth casts a shadow on the moon. The Wolf moon was originally called that after tales of wolves howling outside villages in the winter when food is scarce and they’re hungry and hunting, and the Super part is because the moon is closer to the earth than normal, so it ...

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Bellisana 30/12/2018 0
We all know that Winter Solstice is a time for new beginnings, the return of the light. The days grow longer, and we look to the coming of spring. All things seem possible in the new year to come. Yule is a time of celebration and feasting. Just as the Yule celebration was adapted into Christmas, so have most of us adapted to celebrating both Yule and Christmas, as well as the New Year, all of which herald the changing of the year and the coming of the new. So, in the spirit of new beginnings, I thought we’d look at New Year’s Resolutions and some alternatives to them. The first known New Year’s resolutions were in Babylon, about 4000 years a...

Giving your

Giving your "All"

Bellisana 20/11/2018 0
I thought for sure I would be writing about death this week since I just lost another close friend, and in a way, I am, but I want to focus on the empaths and on why and how important it is to save enough energy for yourself. I know it’s easy to get so caught up in caring for others and seeing to their needs that you forget to replenish yourself, and you let your root chakra get out of balance. Sometimes this happens when you’re in a situation where your normal path to replenishment is blocked, or you just don't feel you have time.  I do understand all of that, but I’ve also seen what can happen when you give all your energy to other people.G...
