North Glen Homestead - Lughnasadh Blessings

Good Morning, 

I am human, with feelings that  allow me to be happy or sad. Yesterday I reached out to some fellow Pagans of Canada to find some non receptive to working together for the betterment of Canadian Pagan Fellowship.   


This hit me hard today, when a woman in Ontario said she was not comfortable with this.  Rather than hold on to the end of the stick in a place I would not like to be, I chose to thank her and move on. Yup, I did what I do best I went straight to  meditation. I sure did!


Tears or unset and anxiety are a choice. Aug 1 is my  34th anniversary with my spouse. Last year I  missed time together as he was out of town working and I attended Spirt Fest in Fruitvale BC. There was no way I was going to let anxiety from another human get to me.  For this woman, (Chanter) a warrior who knows those who understand and seek a better way for Pagans in Canada will come on board with Province to Province sharing. The law of attraction lessons teach not to let emotions get the best of me. 


I sat on the lawn outside under the bird feeder where I hear the chattering of my Buckley and his family and I smiled. In that moment I went to a happy place and self aligned with my inner being that change the entire outlook for my day.  I am grateful for this woman and her contrast towards me as it helps me focus on the now. Allowing me to find the place, tune into it and turn it into manifestation right before my eyes because I am in the moment because of my focus and my attention. What do I mean?? 

I felt slighted, that caused me to feel sad. I want to feel good, so I mediated on feeling good. Good with then come. What happened is someone came on board that wants to be here and grow with us. I love it... #lawofattraction works. Words mean nothing it is all a matter of vibration.  Getting this far in the Federal Government and Provincial has been a lot of hard work. I feel at times I  should quit, that no one cares about this but me. Then I realize it has not ever been done in Canada and there is a reason I am here doing it.  I feel good, and that  feeling good for the sake of feeling good keeps me going. Not because we will get the  Certificate Diploma but because getting there and the journey  cause me great pleasurer.  To have in place a Provincial Education program that helps Pagan be Pagans in  Theology and accepted as such is a lot of prep work and what gives us all  freedom.  Over the past 10 months our board has been slowly planning, building and maintaining the necessities for this adventure. 


These things include:

Setting up the Online Classes
Training Spiritual Directors
Creating Viable Sourced Curriculum
Working with NOC code regulations
Working with Vital Stat BC for  Ordination & Clergy

…and we are doing these things alone. Just the four of us and the community watching and seeing what happens.  And that folks is r-o-u-g-h. We are  being mocked, slandered and terrorized for the ideal we think and feel is what is needed in our community for spiritual accreditation. 

This has been quite the adventure and all while trying to cross things off of my list, both my paper and mental list for my home, my business and my family.  Today a fellow pagan reached out to ask how I was  getting along.  I was taken back, why? 

Because she wasn’t  asking to mock, it was a kind gesture that she was concerned for my mental health.  We are so concerned with our every day lives that we forget those simple acts of kindness can mean the world to someone. 

Let this be a lesson.   To all of us.

Yes. You may be having a rough patch in life, we all do, it’s life. Just remember that there is someone out there that is going through something rougher than you are.   Whatever the reason for their long, hard, frustrating day, just remember a small gesture from you can change their day. Completely. In its entirety. 

I firmly believe that daily piety of meditation when upset can  help the law of attraction and bless you in ways you will never know unless you are a meditator. 


Let the lesson to all of us be: 
Do small things. 
For anyone. For everyone. 
A stranger. A friend. 

Even people that you see every every day. Do it!

You won’t regret it and you could change their life, even if for a moment, it will put them in a better place.

It’s the small things folks… Bright Blessings from the Grove

Community & Blogger Podcast Episodes

With the new changes in the WORLD and in my life I am beginning on a journey into hosting an online radio show. Until we find one that is compatible with our equipment we will be uploading links to listen that will not be live.



DISCLAIMER: 
Statements or show topics are not necessarily the beliefs of the Pagan Community or Grove of the Red Dragon Not for Profit and opinions between talk show hosts may conflict.

As an individual I am setting things up today for my #selfcaresunday 

It is something that has been on my plate a long time especially with  trying my hand on the radio at West Kelowna Community Radio. I really enjoyed doing the weather and looked forward to taking more part in  it. However that was not to be. 

I will be shooting a Pilot Show sometime next month as we go into the harvest season. Our very first guest will be Lady Morgana Spier and Lord Lunar Wolf from the Star Sapphire Tradition.
The call in show will have its own number and run about 15 minutes. Stay tuned. You can keep yourself updated at the grove facebook page or watech for group postings.

Metaphysical 101 September 2020

Last 6 Months of Metaphysical 101 


We hope you have enjoyed the Metaphysical 101 part 1. 

Sadly we lost touch with the World shut down with Covid 19. Making  lessons harder to deal with.  As we finish up this module,  we are excited to share some of the students moving on to the next Course 

✧Metaphysical 101 September 2020  ✧

The home would have been a long house,  with the hall being the heart of the home. 

Centered around the fireplace where the women would have cooked and the men would have joined them. Socializing drinking their strong beer at the end of the work day. Where social and domestic activities took place. Much like the kitchens of today. ( Welcome in the Kitchen Witch)

September kicks off the agricultural Calendar as you would need to plow the fields and get the grain in the ground to harvest next summer.  Join us in the fun of Kitchen Witchery!

Tool Kit items
* Recipes - Forage Field Book 
* Spice kit  - Viles
 


Possible careers include:
Pagan Youth leader
Pagan Administrator / Spiritual Director 
Pagan Missionary - Pagan Clergy
