What do you do when a school, college, or even a city with a stellar history goes to the limit where they go so far as to remove statues of Civil War personages like statues of General Ulysses S. Grant and General Robert E. Lee?  People start claiming that because they are standing out in the open that they are offensive to them and/or to others, that they stand for and represent the South and Slavery.  Well they do not represent them.  They are actually just something that happened to be attached to them.  A by-product if you will call it that. 

               So many people are proud of being a part of our nation’s history – part of the making of our country —  the fact that a person could be related to someone that you may have read about in the history book is always something that you can look back on and say —, “I know that guy!  I remember when I found out he was actually a 5th cousin twice removed.  MAN I wish I could have met and talked to him in person and known what he was really like!”

               Here awhile back I even sat in on an online town meeting type of call where the Governor of Texas Mr. Gregg Abbott himself was going to be answering questions about things relating issues that we had regarding immigration or anything else we have concerns about.  At the time I was actually frustrated and annoyed because people were raising hell wanting to have every single Civil War statue standing and anything connected to the Civil War including any plaque big or small was removed from the UT campus and all of the state and federal buildings and other places where they were. 

               The issue for me was not a matter of Slavery.  Not at all.  It is all about the fact that HISTORY ACTUALLY HAPPENED folks and now they are trying to have it eradicated and changed.  What I mean by that is that they are afraid of offending someone by stating facts of what happened and afraid of being sued like “Oh, you reported or wrote about me so I should be making money off this and should be compensated off the misery of my dead ancestors who have been dead for hundreds of years already.  You OWE ME!”  The government prefers that we have plausible deniability and prefer that we NOT TEACH OUR CHILDREN THE TRUTH in some cases.  Hell in some cases it is some of us that do not want our kids to be taught the truth.

               As for me, I WANT OUR KIDS TO BE TAUGHT THE TRUTH!!  Our Presidents, many of them in the early years, had slaves, and a few of them became even better than some of the average white men and had slaves themselves from some of the evidence that has been dug up as shown here. Thomas Jefferson and even George Washington had slaves – so freakin’ what?  The issue I am trying to address in this piece at the moment is that people are actively trying to erase and cover up history that has already happened. 

               Oh no – they have to change a name of a middle school in a pre-dominantly black neighborhood because they been getting a lot of complaints from the families who are crying and whining because they feel that they do not have nothing better to do with their time other than to complain when they could actually be teaching their kids to better themselves and pick themselves up by their bootstraps so to speak and try and do something with their lives.  Try to apply for a scholarship or something or perhaps sign up to go into the military and make mom and dad proud.

               Right now the Government is all about appearances.  They are wondering how it would look if they let in millions of immigrants in like they have done already.  Trump is/was trying to prevent them from overflowing the borders to keep them from coming into the country so that WE could concentrate on OURSELVES, and protects ourselves and protects our borders which are what he should have been doing all along.  He should have been able to do it without so much hassle from the head of the house Pelosi who, now that I think of it, looks like someone put lipstick on a cow – it just does not belong.

From my point of view we should take care of our own before we worry about taking care of others.  Turn everyone and I mean EVERYONE and their bloody brother at the borders and worry about all those in our borders and who are viable LEGAL CITIZENS who are LEGAL CITIZENS here not the ILLEGAL CITIZENS who, as my husband’s half sister-in-law Claudia is, also a convicted law breaker has been arrested for stealing her own mother as well as a few other people’s identities and was even set to be deported and because she spat out at least 4 kids while she was here during Obama’s Presidency (I always refer to him as Obummer) .  That was by far NOT the first time that woman had done something like that.  Proof can of course be given.  She had stolen my father in law’s ID to have some utilities turned on before he passed away, he made her turn them off because what she did and how she did it was completely ILLEGAL and as I have said before, she has at one time already had stolen her own mother’s ID.   She is one of those  WILL NEVER LEARN and when you attempt to punish her she will wail and scream and pull that card of I have so many babies here they are citizens here!—Obama said so! You cannot do this to me!  When case in point is, she did it to herself because she could keep her own damn legs crossed and her hands on things that did not belong to her.

               Now when it comes to who pays for all these immigrants that are committing these crimes and for the cost of housing and feeding them and everything that it entails?  Who do you think is paying for it?  The Feds sure aren’t going to pay for it.  Hell no!  They will blame Trump and say he dropped the ball and it’s all on him when in fact it’s all the bloody Democrats fault for dropping the ball to begin with.  That is my view on the entire situation.  We did not need another one of ‘the Good Ol’ Boys’  aka Democrats or one of the Straight Laced Republicans that was up there to cozy up a lil’ bit closer to their pals.  We needed someone up there like Trump who knew how to run a business as a business needed to be run. 

               So in my eyes that is what Trump did.  He went to battle and didn’t take any prisoners.  He got the money and started that wall.  Now Governor Abbott it seeing to it that it gets finished.  Only when Trump did it, he had made sure to seize the lands that the fence was on to take it and make it into Federal land so that it would be done right and properly.  Now as of a few days ago, Governor Abbott has sent a letter to the President demanding that the President (You know, that idiot that SO closely resembles that comedian Jeff Dunham’s puppet Walter – President Biden) that he return all that land that Trump took from Texas BACK to Texas ASAP.  Seriously people don’t tell me you haven’t heard of Jeff Dunham and have not seen President Biden’s twin brother Walter?  I have included a couple of links below for everyone to enjoy and to hopefully lighten the situation some because some people take this sort of thing way to seriously and take every given opportunity to get ‘lawsuit-happy’.

               Ladies and gentlemen it is much better that we educate our children with the facts and have the facts to back up everything.  There is nothing at all wrong with this and you will gain nothing other than disgrace and disdain in asking that we NOT teach our children about something that DID actually happen in a moment of time in our country’s moment of time in history.  AT ANY MOMENT OF TIME.  The next thing you know they will be suggesting that you change your name if you are related to someone imported or who had anything to do with a momentous occasion in history like the Civil War such as the General Robert E. Lee or General Ulysses S. Grant.  Perhaps Geronimo, General George Armstrong Custer or even Abe Lincoln himself all because they had something to do with the fact that ‘Slavery’ happened or that they may have owned slaves.  So therefor they think that because THOSE people owned slaves or may have possibly owned one, that they are entitled to restitution somehow.  I don’t think so guys and gals.  It is too late to play that ticket in my opinion and you can NOT keep playing it and think that you can keep playing it in order to gain your 10 minutes of fame because your life is so bad and you are trying to make money from it.,  Sorry, but that is how I see it.  I only call it how I see it.

               That is where I will end this post for now but will always be welcome to take suggestions for a post subject.  So feel free to comment just please be courteous and respectful as my daughters will be reading this.  Thank you.

The Magick of Food 1


Written by Priestess Hypatia

For Coven Life back in 5/12/2119

Over the next series of articles I will be presenting the ‘Magick of Food’ by introducing you to some wonderful recipes and ingredients that can transform the way you eat and cook food.  But before I delve into that, I feel that I need to expand on the essence behind the inspiration of the previous article The Magick of Food.

So here is a little bit about me…..

The Calling

Back in 1987 I saw a wonderful movie called ‘Babette’s Feast’. One that transformed the way I thought about food. It allowed me to think of food, the art of cooking and eating on a soul level and the Psyche. I ventured out into the big wide world of cooking to fulfill my dream as a Chef, traveling around the world and learning the culinary art. All the while there was something missing. A feeling I just couldn’t describe.

Much later yet another movie ‘Chocolat’ with Juliet Binoche triggered that feeling I had many years before. One that ignites a passion filled with magick even at the thought of collecting and put together ingredients. It’s like an alchemical process, transforming a simple meal from the mundane into the magickal.

If anyone is familiar with such movies like ‘A Touch of Spice’ and even the esteemed and rather accurate animation ‘Ratatouille’ you will understand how food can have such a sensory and psychological impact.  Using simple fresh and whole ingredients, grown, stored, prepared and cooked with love, it can truly become memorable, one that will transform your existence.

Time Out

Many years in the Industry running and owning restaurants, then going on to training Chefs, I decided to take a sabbatical from cooking and do some study. Of course, I thought, the next logical stage was Nutrition. Becoming a Clinical Nutritionist has allowed me to look at the actual alchemical process of food and its effects on the human body mind and soul. I loved the pathophysiological aspect of food however my interest in the spiritual aspect of food was far greater.

Putting it all Together

My dedicated spiritual vocation over the years has given me the privilege to look deep into my soul aspect and discover my 2 loves. Spirituality and Nutrition. Now, alongside Clinical Nutrition, I also practice Spiritual Nutrition.

Spiritual Nutrition allows me to look at an individual in a more holistic manner. It takes more than vitamins, minerals and nutrients to heal an ill body. There is a deep psych attached to the element of food, one that takes us back to our first ancestors who walked this earth. Food has been associated with the human psyche since the beginning of time. It is used in many spiritual practices as offering to the spirits, ancestors, Gods, etc.

There is an intimate connection to food with humans since the hunter- gatherer times, one that brings people together in the planting, harvest, preparing and of course eating. Festivals are created and centered on the foods that are harvested during a season, it nourishes our entire existence and feeds our mind, body and soul, so how can this NOT be magick. Simply put food IS magick, it is a gift from the Gods themselves, this is one of the reasons we have harvest festivals, perform offerings and sacrifices. Such practices have been and will continue to be honored throughout millennia.

Keep it Real!

It is important to me and many others I suspect to keep food real. Steering away from artificial, highly processed and even packaged food. Anything that has an ingredient label attached to it I seriously try and avoid if I can. Anything that is unethical, mass produced, artificial and genetically modified all for the convenience of the corporate company. Supporting local farmers and local stores that supply locally grown produce is all part of my ethos, I also encourage my clients to do so.

Society has drifted so far away from the reality of what food actually is. Food is sacred, not a mass produced lump of dead nutrients that is treated with disrespect. Our soil and atmosphere are being over polluted and over planted, developing a deficiency that is being transferred into the food we eat. They then try to compensate by adding artificial fertilizers to the soil killing the natural process. Planting GMO foods that only are good for one harvest, confusing the wildlife, the bees, the trees and of course all the other animals including us humans.

As a result the Great Mother becomes ill and of course as we are an extension of Her existence so do we become ill including everything that she has gifted to us. Our food is making us sick, in fact I just finished attending a lecture with convincing scientific evidence of such shameful global practices.  Bringing diseases to the forefront in epidemic proportions such as autoimmune, inflammatory, psychological, pathophysiological, vitamin and nutrient deficiencies in first world countries, malnourished and deformities as a result, cancers, Hormonal imbalances and the list just goes on. This is NOT reality, the reality is that we all have an ability to live a long healthy good quality life, this is a fact not an assumption. In Haiti one of the poorest countries in the world, they refuse assistance from Monsanto (a global food abomination) because their crops are all GMO. The people from Haiti know all too well of the effects of what such food companies and practices can do to their existence.

Can a Diet have an Impact on our Spirituality?

Once we become aware of our actual connection to food, nourishment or human nutrition takes on a spiritual aspect. Growing our own food to harvest and cook is very powerful magick indeed and most definitely impacts on our spirituality. It’s like growing your own herbs, drying them and using them in potions, lotions or a sacred incense during ritual, far more powerful than buying online from a mass produced herbal supplier. How can the magick of your herbs take effect if the energy is wrong to begin with? You plant them, nurture them, and care for them, sharing your own essence. Everything we do, everything we are is energy, one that comes from a pure light source. Just look up and you will see this grand ball of energy called the Sun. Plants thrive in a conducive environment, just like people, science has proven this over and over again.

Food is the same, they too are plants. They should be planted at certain times of the year, in fact looking at the Farmers Armagnac calendar one can see even at certain times of the month what is required, this is called bio dynamic planting. It allows the plant to be at its best, ridding it of disease and producing the best possible food, it is the exact same effect on our body. If this isn’t spell work, I don’t know what is!

The Ancients

The Pythagorean’s- about 600BC believed that a healthy diet contributes to a higher sense of being, encouraging and leading one to a path of enlightenment, a healthy body equates to a higher spiritual being, a cleaner essence and a pure thought. This is what they call the light body. It is through these pure thoughts that one develops their soul aspect or as the ancient Greeks called the Psyche. The ancient Greeks had a maxim- Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habit, your habit becomes your character your character becomes your fate, and no one can escape their fate.

Mind, Body, Soul Connection

Modern spirituality calls this the ‘Mind, Body, Soul connection’. The reality is that the pure light body is not a metaphysical speculative pseudoscience. The ancients knew what they were talking about. Modern science has discovered something called Bio photons- These are actual’ bits of light’ energy found in all living plants and animals that also include humans. These ’bits of light’ have been proven to play a vital role in supporting the health and well-being of cells and the immune system. Without these ‘Bits of light’ our body becomes ill, our mind becomes ill and our soul then becomes ill.

REMEMBER you are what you eat! If you eat food filled with light then that is what you will become.

In the following articles I will be introducing simple food sources and their benefits to the ‘Mind, Body and Soul’.

Bon Appetite!

So let’s start this article with a little Poetic Medicine……

An Ode to Garlic

Oh Garlic, what homage

can we bring you

and your graced state

of bulbousness?

Packed tightly into

your little white dome

we want to break you open

and spread your cloves like

shining white pebbles onto

the shores of our meals.

By Lara Kirsten

‘Eat no onions nor garlic, for we are utter sweet breath, and I do not doubt but hear them say, it is a sweet comedy’

-William Shakespeare in a Midsummer Night’s Dream.

A wonderfully pungent herb that has been known for its ability to ward off vampires and the like, is considered a staple in many people’s diets around the world. As a main feature in our culinary world, the humble garlic demands its presence in the…

“Immortal Day” “World of Warcraft” and “DiabloIII”

I love playing games online. There are lots of people out there that may think that it must be nice to just sit and play online games. Sure they might seem a wee bit difficult at first but just hang in there and you will end up with a lot of extras in the end!

the character Lady Rivyn Cerridwyn Gold from IMMORTAL DAYS, a totally FREE online playing game! Try it anytime!

The game that I play online now is called “Immortal Day”

While being a Game Master and dealing with Account Investigations it was fun. Sometimes LMAO. The entire time I was at Blizzard Entertainment that is what I did. I investigated everytime a player would report either their account or the possibility of either their friend, guildmate’s account being compromised/hacked. Their guild bank had been robbed — you name it, I investigated it! Hahahaaa

People like Blizzard can afford to get the resources to go after those who hack accounts.

The first thing would be to run an ip check on the account for the past 30 days to see what the account history looked like and see if it matched the actual registered account information. A lot of times there would be a lot of account sharing which is against policy so we would lock the account and let the account owner know when, why, how etc. in order to reclaim their account once again. I would then action/ban/lock depending on the nature of the compromise of the account . I would then restore the hacked account of everything that was lost,

From our mouths to the goddess’ ears! 🙂

I cannot decide if I want to put up the Foreward and First Chapter to my second Novel that has yet been titled or to start my recipe section. Or maybe a funny comical section containing lots of hysterical memes or pictures that cause you to burst out laughing? Help me make a decision folks!!

Decisions, decisions decisions!
