Bluebells were said by herbalists to help prevent nightmares, and used as a remedy against leprosy, spider-bites and tuberculosis, but the bluebell is poisonous. He also doubted whether the issue was that important. "Isn't the resurrection of Jesus Christ a great enough miracle?" Furthermore, Starhawk’s wiccan religion of the goddess is explicitly pantheistic (all is God) and monistic (all is one).13 This causes one to wonder whether Fox’s frequent commendations of Starhawk’s work in reawakening the goddess religion mean that he accepts pantheism after all.

Those who persevere through the trials of this life will continue to travel this path in the future life beyond the grave. All true Christians, without exception, are called to this ideal. There are not two ideals: one for the laity and another for monastics. John Chrysostomos gives the following instructions to a Christian parent: "You are very mistaken if you think that one thing is expected of lay people and something else from a monastic ref.: http://www.aladinfm.eu/?lib/the-book-of-ogham-the-celtic-tree-oracle. Wiccans and Pagans parents stick to the idea that children must choose a religion, and that it is morally wrong to bring a child up "as" the parent's religion. Until the child is old enough to research religions and pick one, they are not a member of a religion. "The children of Wiccan parents tend to be encouraged to learn about many different religious traditions, beliefs and practices, and the mythology found in comparative religions and civilizations". 51 In addition to trying to avoid unduly influencing their own children, Wicca is also non-proselytizing.

The fact that what were once central elements in society are now perceived as untrustworthy or lacking in genuine authority has created a climate where people look inwards, into themselves, for meaning and strength. There is also a search for alternative institutions, which people hope will respond to their deepest needs. The unstructured or chaotic life of alternative communities of the 1970s has given way to a search for discipline and structures, which are clearly key elements in the immensely popular �mystical� movements , source: http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/battles-and-enchantments-retold-from-early-gaelic-literature.

In some societies, shamans exhibit a two-spirit identity, assuming the dress, attributes, role or function of the opposite sex, gender fluidity and/or same-sex sexual orientation. This practice is common, and found among the Chukchi, Sea Dayak, Patagonians, Araucanians, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Navajo, Pawnee, Lakota, and Ute, as well as many other Native American tribes , e.g. http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/tending-brigids-flame-awaken-to-the-celtic-goddess-of-hearth-temple-and-forge. O lacked some vital keys to the real secret of magick which Crowley claimed to have incorporated into the higher degrees. Curwen undoubtedly knew more about these matters than did Crowley. [96] But regardless of Crowley's actual knowledge of Tantra, virtually everyone writing on the subject since the time of Grant and Symonds seems to have accepted this basic identity of Crowleyian magic and Tantra. [97] Crowley's version of the tradition and, above all, his identification of Tantra primarily with its sexual component, would have a formative impact on virtually all later forms of sex magic in the West , cited: http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/survive-the-storm-you-can-yes-you.

Herbalism was one of the reasons Witches were persecuted, as the fledgling medical industry wasn't up to the competition. As only men could be doctors, they naturally won the support of the government and the church in their prohibition against the Crones' magickal healing. And there is often little difference between herbs as healing agents and magickal agents http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/seidways-shaking-swaying-and-serpent-mysteries.
Characteristic of such an approach is the saying of Anselm [Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093-1109, one of the first after the Norman Conquest and destruction of the Old English Orthodox Church]: "I believe so as to understand." It is freedom to be, to embrace intentional uselessness and waste time with God. Thomas Merton describes this well, “The monk is not defined by his task, his usefulness; in a certain sense he is supposed to be useless, because his mission is not to do this or that job but to be a man of God.” This is exemplified by the Ebb and Flow of the tides of Holy Island , e.g. http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/notes-on-st-luke-religious-knowledge.

The deacon fulfilled an important link between priest and people. 8) Celtic bishops were under the authority of abbots. 9) The clergy could, of course, marry but this was not unique because it was only in the eleventh century that Rome expressly forbade its clergy to marry. As the tonsure, this was to be a major issue. Of course, in the Eastern Church today, the clergy can still marry. Also the Celtic priesthood was hereditary like the Hebrews, where as Rome was by election. 10) In the Celtic world there were mixed monasteries in which the religieux of both sexes lived and worked ref.: http://www.aladinfm.eu/?lib/the-little-book-of-celtic-lore-little-book-series.
