Practice of magical skills and abilities
The witch is a curious figure, existing in a uniquely liminal space of both fact and fiction, this world and the next. Many practitioners of magic walk a path that carefully stays in that middle ground, but a few heed the call to peek beyond the hedge, to walk amongst ancestors and spirits and gods and beings for which we don't yet have names. It can be daunting, to leave that comfortable middle path, but Christine Grace's book The Witch at the Forest's Edge provides a gentle, encouraging hand to hold as you take your first steps past the hedge into the world beyond. The advice is practical, grounded in a practice that begins with what you have on hand and in your surroundings, includes discussion of ancestry and the many ways that family is made and found, and includes a deeply appreciated section on magical ethics. This book is practical, fresh, and will help guide a whole new generation off the well-trod path to embrace the old, wild magic found beyond the hedge. Get more of Christine Grace here.

The creatures jump into the colorful, campy cauldron that is 1993's Hocus Pocus. They discuss the cult status of the movie, compare it to its contemporaries and talk A LOT more than they would like to about virginity. Despite its flaws, the movie manages to put a spell on the creatures.

There's witchcraft, tormented spirits, curses, the well of evil and even a bit of good old-fashioned Wicker Man style paganism in this episode of watery folklore. These tales concern the folklore of wells, a source of water for centuries which could be used for good and bad magic. In some cases, a Pagan tradition could be used to summon rain in times of drought. But in other cases, a lost soul appears to be damned inside and calls for help. Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he explores the weird wells of Wales on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast... if you dare! What is the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees podcast? In early 2020, Mark Rees launched the world's first podcast dedicated to Welsh ghost stories, folklore, myths and legends. By combining his unique research and insights from many books and articles with long-lost tales from dusty old tomes, this weird and wonderful podcast takes a fascinating look at the country's countless curious subjects.

I've always been so envious of the freedom my completely-out-of-the-broom-closet witch friends seem to enjoy. And while I know the grass is always greener on the other side, I know there are pitfalls and pratfalls for those witches who get to live out and proud, just as there are for those of us witches who have at least one foot in the broom closet. How valid are witches who have to practice from behind the broom closet door?

Gloria Smith joined us in the studio to give her story of miraculous conversion. A good person, from a good part of town, with good hardworking parents, a good student, with good grades.... why did she need Jesus? In fact when her best friend Shania got caught up in the Jesus People movement and was converted, Gloria was embarrassed. The Holy Spirit was faithful to draw on her but she rejected Him repeatedly. Listen to this amazing inciteful story of what happens when you repeatedly reject God. Glory was seeking power, the power she saw in her Shania. But she didn't want to surrender to Christ. She could find power to heal, power of incite, and power that gave her confidence another way. She would seek this power through NEW AGE through WITCH CRAFT.

The ability to perceive into the supernatural realm may be related to brain chemistry surrounding the pineal gland. The pineal gland is small and shaped like a pine cone, and is in the deep recesses of the brain. It produces various hormones related to sleep, sex, and growth.Many religions consider it the gateway to spiritual awareness and it's been called the “third eye” and the “seat of the soul.” Much mysticism surrounds it. The hype is probably overblown and frankly, its functioning and total purposes aren't completely understood by modern science.Peer-reviewed research demonstrates that manipulating the pineal gland in certain ways can impact the development of the sex organs while producing giantism.It is one of the few parts of the brain that is not isolated from the blood stream. Both spinal fluid and blood flow strongly through the pineal gland.ABUSING THE PINEAL GLADWestern diet, fluoridated water, and constant visual attacks (e.g., television programming) might tend to calcify or numb the pineal gland's ability to function. Speculatively, maybe this is why some people can “see” as children, but as they age, they lose their ability: their pineal gland has been so blunted by pollutants generated by Western society.A drawing of the Pineal GlandSome drugs seem to act on the pineal gland, instantly shutting it down. This is why when some seers go to “get help” with something like depression, and a doctor prescribes anti-depressants, the “seeing” stops. But when they go off the drugs (to deal with the depression in other ways), the "seeing" returns.But then, maybe the drugs aren't affecting the pineal gland specifically, but brain chemistry in general. I know a seer who was afflicted with migraines, and took certain migraine medication, only to find her ability to see in the spirit realm stopped. The questions she had to answer was simply: is it worth not seeing into the spirit realm to live pain free? It was, although she felt some fear never knowing if a room was "safe" or not, because she couldn't perceive into the spirit realm anymore.Eventually, her doctor switched medications, and a few weeks later, her ability to perceive the spirit realm returned, while the migraines stayed away. I haven't been able to locate research to indicate if some of these drugs impact the pineal gland, but I suspect they impact brain chemistry generally.Speculatively, some drugs radically “open” the pineal gland in negative ways. People on LSD and other drugs (such as potent, refined marijuana) report seeing very frightening things. It's difficult to know if the hallucinations are just hallucinations or if they are really seeing something in the spirit realm. It's difficult to know if the reason they see things is because of the pineal glad or because the drugs impact various parts of brain chemistry. Activating the Pineal GlandMuch mysticism abounds relating to "activating the pineal gland." Perhaps the pineal gland is stimulated when people pray to God or other spirit beings, when they use certain drugs, when they meditate, and for other reasons.Perhaps it metaphorically opens a window or portal into the spirit world. It enables all of us to have mystical experiences (without drugs).Cleansing the Pineal GlandThere is much advice on the Internet about the need to "cleanse" the pineal gland. I saw one image shared on social media with 15 herbs that "decalcify" (or remove calcium buildup) from the pineal gland. Ostensibly, you'd want to "decalcify" the pineal gland to have better spiritual experiences. I'm reminded of a passage from the Book of Enoch, which describes the Watchers who came to earth in the days of Enoch. A Watcher is a powerful guardian spirit who was supposed to watch over a territory in protection. These particular Watchers "saw and lusted after" the "beautiful and comely (human) daughters"[ref]Enoch 6:1-2, translated by R.H. Charles, 1917 [/ref]. They came to earth and made a deal with men: in exchange to sexually use the women they wanted, the Watchers would teach men, among other things, "charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants." [ref]Enoch 7:1[/ref] For what purpose did they teach about the cutting of roots and use of plants?Witchcraft. In other words, a short-cut, a hack, into having easier spiritual experience. People smoke or consume herbs to control a spiritual experience, or attempt to control God - or other spirits. And this is the heart of witchcraft.This event, in which humans were taught occultism (as well as how to turn women into sex objects, and how to create weapons of war) were, in the views of the Biblical writers, one of the principal causes of wickedness in the world. So let me ask this; Is it God's plan to use herbs to create a spiritual experience?If not, then what is God's plan? Repentance. Oh, sure, repenting is not as easy as consuming or smoking herbs. Repenting is an all-consuming experience... (but isn't that what happens with drug use or dieting or cleansing fads... they control us...?)... because God is an all-consuming fire. Instead of doing drugs to control your spiritual experience, draw closer to God through repentance and spiritual disciplines so God can control your spiritual experience. Turning away from your old life to pursue the life of purity God wants so God can rule and reign in our bodies, our thinking, and our hearts might very well mean changing your diet, and treating your body like it's a temple God wants to live in. It might even mean exercising. It certainly means stop sinning. It means setting our thoughts on things above and submitting your will to God's will. But it certainly does not mean taking herbs or drugs to shortcut God's plan into a spiritual experience. That was the plan of the Watchers, which after all led to great human wickedness. And in case you missed it, Jesus defeated the Watchers on the Cross. Steward Your Body, Mind and SpiritIt's important to not overblow the importance of the pineal gland, or any other part of the body..It's not in the pineal gland that we move and live and have our being. If you are a Christian, it's in Christ.The pineal gland is not the gate and stairway to heaven. Jesus is.Your body -not just the pineal gland - is a gift. Steward it. Your mind -not just the pineal gland - is a gift. Hone it.Focus our thoughts on things above and not things below, and seek first the rule and reign of God in our lives. In other words, keep the knowledge of this gland in perspective.
It's no secret that I've been looking for someone to discuss this on the podcast for some while, but finally, it's come together. Johanna Gomez is in the process of writing up her PhD thesis at the Goldsmiths University in London and her research has taken her deep into the Llanos of Colombia, where witchcraft is rife, to investigate this phenomenon, the rites and rituals and delve into a lesser known cultural practice found in this region and all over Colombia. How much do you know about witchcraft, witchcraft in Colombia, witches and shamans and indeed, in the context of Colombia's armed conflict? A lot more, I hope, after this incredible conversation with Johanna Gomez.
When I wrote an article for Writer's Digest about witches in stories, I said that the best stories aren't about the magic but about the power. In science fiction and fantasy writing, I've found that a superpower or access to magic or a special tool that grants an ability - whatever it is - isn't nearly as interesting as the power that it grants the user. The ability for magic to level a playing field, to allow the righting of wrongs. In her latest graphic novel, Squad (illustrated by Lisa Sterle), author Maggie Tokuda-Hall tells a story of werewolves, yes, but the story is far more about a young girl finding the power to fit in, to feel in control of her life for the first time ever. We talk about her new work, the importance of queer representation, receiving critique, and how we'd rewrite Mean Girls if we could.

This is Sparrow, one half of the duo that bring you The Wigglian Way. Mojo and I are excited to share the interview I did with Heather Greene with all of you. Heather does some freelance work and is the Acquisitions Consultant over at Llewellyn Worldwide. October 8 2021 was the recent release date of Heather's new book, Lights, Camera, Witchcraft.

She managed to squeeze us in and was gracious with me when I kept wanting to make the scope of the interview International when the focus of the book is witchraft in American film and television. Have fun and we will see you next week! It's all about the Love!

We go over some DISTURBING symbolism found in Disney's cult classic- HOCUS POCUS! Grab your pumpkin spice lattes ladies because I'm about to blow your minds! We'll go through the entire film (plot spoilers) and find connections of the cast and crew with ACTUAL Salem witch bloodlines! Some connections we'll discover include the Necronomicon and most importantly- the confirmation that the spell book used in the film has incantations from an ACTUAL Satanic ritual!

Looking back 300 years on, it's easy to overgeneralize why the Salem Villagers decided to persecute (and execute) their neighbors. But as much as this story has become an American history chestnut, we still don't understand why Salem lost its mind. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
