DUAL FAITH Tradition

Christo-Pagan Information

What is this term, Christo-Pagan or Christian-Pagan? Isn’t it a contradiction?  Well, the truth is: your ancestors were probably Christo-Pagans.  In Europe the historical Dual Faith period lasted from approximately 450 AD to 1100 AD, some say it began with Christianity itself. Indeed, Christianity has undeniable pagan roots.  During the Dual Faith period our European ancestors were able to practice both their “pagan” ancestral religions and the “New Religion” coming up from Rome. In many ways we still practice both as Easter Eggs, Halloween and Christmas trees prove.


It's a rainy Sunday morning, cool enough for a wee fire on the hearth, one of my favorite things.  I love anything to do with a home, fireplaces, candlelight, baking bread, making tea, the smell of fresh linens, cozy cottage ambiance, all a backdrop for the Creative Force, whether writing poetry or reading Tarot, expressing both the practical and mystical, so fun.  Join us.


I've shared my goddess/Great Mother experience years ago and continue to hear from those seeking their own experience.  After my divorce, I had gone to Branson on 3rd trip to buy a place there (this was before the internet) without success and depressed, dejected, hopeless, abandoned, was starting home about 6am when I stopped at a stop-sign and the goddess/Great Mother embraced me. It was a cloud of benevolent energy I instantly intuitively recognized and lasted for couple/three minutes. There's a glitch on the Link to this post so here it is:
Discussing the vibrational energy power of place with a friend we  agreed the Branson, Missouri area has consciousness raising  portals.  Leaving there years ago, as I pulled up to a  four-way stop near Hollister,  I was suddenly  embraced  by the soothing, comforting great goddess energy/frequency,  just what I badly needed at the time and still the most wonderful experience of my life. Sadly, this intersection has been replaced with a  cloverleaf interchange.  My friend had her own  vibrational energy experience driving through the  Kimberling City area where she encountered a strong beneficent power portal and we agreed there's sacred holy ground portals there in spite of rampant commercialism, traffic congestion etc.  It's obvious the earth energies contribute to Branson's phenomenal success story attracting seven million visitors yearly.  Beyond the glitz it's the northern tip of the Eureka Springs Stargate vortex hydro apex...don't miss it!

TGIF!  Even though I'm retired, old habits die hard.  The weekends are always welcome and fun like, time to walk the flea market, go to the Mall etc.  For some unknown reason, I prefer doing  laundry on Mondays, going to a buffet after Sunday church, running errands in the mornings, and getting dressed before returning phone calls?  Who knew we could be so programmed/domesticated?  I was more flexible when I was younger so maybe this comes with getting older when we like some form in our lives in these uncertain times? 


Align with  the New Moon energy with new projects/beginnings and don't forget Abundance Bucks. Flic your Bic/light a candle to the end of Mars Retrograde Post Shadow phase today and embrace the goddess within as the Divine Feminine Age of Aquarius continues to emerge.  


Tomorrows New Moon in Libra aligns with Mars Retrograde Post Shadow phase ending - excellent!  Use the extra oomph for new projects or just Practice Presence and allow Spirit to gift Right For You conditions and experiences.  Remember, your reality reflects where you are on The Frequency Scale so if it doesn't suit then get present until you sense the shift as it reboots. 


The last few days I've noticed an uplift in spirit, feeling more myself --  then remembered Mars retrograde post shadow period ends October 8, day after tomorrow,  'bout time!  This was tough, with Mercury and Mars retrograde at the same time, so glad to see the last of it.  I'm ready for something fun - join me.


Just a reminder, when mechanical mind goes on a runaway , dive in doing what you love!  One of my favorite ways to express creativity and cancel negative thinking  is decorating -  and The Cottage is an ongoing project.  There's always something to improve/rearrange and restore *Zen frequency.  Try it.
*Zen frequency: quiet/still mind.


Just a reminder to those  upset over reality/current events - Practice Presence!  Control mechanical mind instead of  mechanical mind controlling you!  Join us.


December 2011 post redoux
Recently I've been thinking about traveling more and immediately beliefs pop up, costs too much, too frivolous etc. Old indoctrination about lack, fear and practicality. But it's not money that creates, it's the power of imagination. The desire itself comes packaged with the means of fulfillment including money, people, opportunity and circumstance. Our beliefs in lack indicate our misunderstanding of the power and how it works. Creative Imagination is limitless. It's everywhere endlessly, infinitely free for our use. How do we describe the quality of imagination - runaway, wishful thinking etc? Mostly these show our ignorance. How about allowing your imagination to runaway to something wonderful? Are you impressing The Force with your desire? Instead of trying to figure out how to do it just imagine yourself doing or having whatever it is.


The Equinox/Full Moon energy is reminder of Somewhere In Time vignettes , making me a bit lonely for those I shared experiences with.  I'm grateful for retirement allowing me to live the solitary life, which in the past I believed I chose but know now I was chosen vis a vis no such thing as free will!  It was a harsh, often dark windy path that led to the present,  where I'm happy In Service To Others.  Join us. 


What's in your DNA?  While exploring family history on Ancestry.com I connected with family and discovered the Celtic  heritage passed down from Granma, not Granpa.  Another big surprise was that both family names  were prominent English/Irish Roma aka gypsy!  Who knew? Of course, this isn't the only DNA/perceived past life influence that I've written about. In case you might wish for your own recall, beware.  All my experiences, were harsh, including this go-round.  We pay a price to join in family group incarnations and also, your third eye chakra may tap into more than you wanted to know?   Should you be here on The Mission, you may have your moments when you might prefer you never heard of any of it. . .  find your group -  it's alright.


"Deep Within You Lies That Tremendous Life Force
Take heart when you are going through times of being stripped of everything which has meant so much to you in this material world, when one thing after another seems to be taken from you until you have nothing left. Accept this time of seeming barrenness, of complete aloneness and realize that deep within you lies that tremendous life force which, when you have learnt to rely on it, will once again start surging through you with even greater force than ever and you will grow in greater stature and beauty as you rely entirely on it, on Me, the Source of all Life, all Creation, and you put first things first.
One of the co-founders of the Findhorn Community, Eileen Caddy, received guidance from the "still, small voice within" and shared it with the community for more than 40 years until she passed away in 2006. We continue this tradition as her guidance is as relevant today as it was when she received it.

Since the "Go Ninja" warning, I've had feedback from those receiving their own version.  Some ask how I'm responding?  As always, I'm staying connected via intuitive bridge/Solar Plexus/gut chakra and advise others to do the same.  I'm spending most of my day in my Home Temple. . . . try it.


What if I told you that your every conflict, disappointment, struggle, or challenge with others and yourself, was merely a manifestation of what's going on within your own thinking. Would you go there first to fix, mend, and allay?
Yeah, you might miss the drama. 


Image result for palo santo uses  I love this!  Its name literally means holy     wood, and it is just that. When it is burned, the smoke is believed to have both medicinal and therapeutic healing power. Traditionally, it is burned by Incas, indigenous people of the Andes, Shamans and medicine people for spiritual purifying, energy cleansing and healing.


Although Mars Retrograde  went  stationary direct, we still have  shadow period which may activate your warrior persona, a reminder the symbology of  Mars the god of war. Here at The Cottage, it revived a chronic  issue  so if/when this happens, choose your battles/save yourself first.


With Mars in post shadow phase until October 8, you may be experiencing tailender backlashes! If so then choose no response.  Actually this is the best choice about most things -- don't claim it!  Assert your dominion and move on. 


I'm publishing this in case you can relate -- It really helps to know others healed/are healing their broken spirit -  a lifetime challenge for some of us. Admin Kay 
  Debra Shiveley Welch, Traditionally Published Author (2004-present)
My spirit has been broken.Until my late 20s, I was just that: a broken spirit. I lived my childhood without love, emotional support, indeed, many times without the necessities of life. I was introverted, full of shame (undeserved) and believed that I was one of those people who could not engender love. I was alone.


Even though Mars went stationary direct August 27, it still emits during the post retrograde phase, so beware. I received warning message to go Ninja and know to always take Mars seriously.  . .  sigh.


Co-creative science is a revolutionary way
to address the many serious problems
that are mushrooming all around us. 
Co-Creative Science is a book about nature and the amazing partnership we can forge with nature for working together to successfully address the many problems that face us in our everyday and professional lives. But co-creative science isn't just for addressing problems. It also points the way for us to establish our new partnership with nature so that we can live an environmentally friendly life that will be part of our planet's solutions and balance, and not part of our planet's problems and destruction.
