This is a religious discussion/debate. If you’ve never been to my blog before KNOW that I write about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that comes to my mind and nothing is OFF limits. This includes RELIGION. Please be polite, respectful and understanding when engaging others or myself as I will do the same. You MAY or MAY NOT like what is said, you may NOT agree with it, but at least hear/read me out and try to see my point (and others) from an objective view. I am NOT trying to DIRECTLY attack you or YOUR Religion. It’s nothing personal! Thank you.

I know many Christians, from my personal experience growing up with a 7th Day Adventist Father; Friends who are Catholic; people I’ve met – have told me things, said things to me about accepting Jeshua (Jesus Christ) as my Lord and Savior, as God, essentially. Sometime, back in last year when I originally wrote up the outline for this topic, I came to a sudden realization.
Note: Jeshua is how I am going to be referring to “Jesus Christ” for the duration of my post. Thank you.
Now one would wonder how or why I didn’t come to it sooner, but I came to it in my own time and place and that’s what’s important. Since I am someone who has studied an array of Celtic, Greco-Roman and other types of Legend and Lore out there – I realized, “Oh my goodness! Jeshua actually would be a Demigodby all accounts! Not GOD but a Demigod because he is the “Son” of God!“
Now if you know anything about Lore yourself, whether you are Christian or no, that might make complete sense to you. There might also be people still shaking their heads at me and my comment though and that’s okay too. I do understand to a fair extent about why. More

So I know this might be after Yule, Christmas and everything else we were celebrating last month, but I didn’t want to wait until next year to do this and I didn’t have the strength or conviction to write this topic during my trip to Vancouver. I saw Home Alone on yesterday so I know it’s not too late yet – because people are still kind of coasting on the afterglow of the holidays. Whether that is good or bad is up for debate.
Many parents I know are faced with many rather difficult challenges when raising their kids. From helping them differentiate between “Right and Wrong” to “You can’t Like Boys/Girls Yet!“. One of these challenges comes in the form of a rather innocent, yet well-intentioned, slightly manipulative, white lie. Santa Clause. Some kid’s parents tell their kids, “He’s not real” to “He is real, you just have to believe!“. What is fact? What is fiction? What have we embellished over the years about this rather kindly, jovial and jolly man who grants us Faith, teaching us about charity, humility, compassion, helps us to believe in the Magick of Christmas and more.
For those of you who don’t know. St. Nickolas was a real man. He was born in the third century in a village called Patara. He was a devout Christian as his parents raised him to be (as is often the case of those times and even a persistent theme of today). His parents unfortunately died when he was young and obeying, what he felt to be the will and words of Jeshua (Jesus), sold all that he owned and used what he had to help the needy, sick and the poor. He dedicated his life to God and was eventually made a Bishop of Myra while he was still a young man. “Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships.” (Excerpt from “Who is St. Nicholas” on St. Nicholas Center) More

Hail and well met one and all. So I have a special treat for you today. This topic I am writing today has sat in my Drafts for a while (Since Oct 22, 2012 to be exact). I finally feel like I can write this topic today, so I hope you enjoy it. It’s another “Food for Thought” but also one of those “Let me just check-in with myself and do a self-assessment“. Now, as you can see by the title we’ll be discussing, what I like to call and maybe others do to – I have no idea, The Cosmic Victim.
Side, Off-Topic Note: By the way, I’m slowly by surely learning to master an iPad. Mwhahaha!
I’m actually still in the process of working and making my own personal “Oracle” and “The Cosmic Victim” is one of my archetypes (I was actually hoping I would finish it before I wrote this up and posted it. Didn’t happen, maybe later I will). Now some of you are probably wondering, “Gee Gwen, how is someone or what makes someone a Cosmic Victim?” I have an answer, thank you for asking.

I’d like to think all the experience I have accumulated up to this point has helped me immensely in understanding this archetype (otherwise I can’t imagine why Spirit would want me to include it in my Oracle if I didn’t). Of the people I have come to know and meet I have met a few “Cosmic Victims“. Now there are perpetual “Cosmic Victims” and then there are those of us who just throw ourselves a temporary “Pity-Party“, get over it and heal to move on to bigger and better things.

Hello everyone from Vancouver B.C (my current location)! This is going to be an formal-informal blog today. I hope some of you are enjoying the snow up here. I haven’t gotten to throw my snowball yet at my friend. I hope to do that maybe tomorrow if that. It’s very cold though, colder than back home and our winter’s (I heard they got snow as well after I left, poo!), but I’m staying warm, though I almost caught a cold on my 1st day. Thanks be to Spirit I didn’t! Yay! Moving on to today’s topic though, let’s do that.
I’m not sure if I’ve done this topic already. I think I’ve “Touched Base” on it before, but I don’t think I’ve gone in-depth about it. If I’m wrong though, I got some deleting to do, me thinks, later. More

I think at some point we’ve all heard something along these lines or to this effect:However, more often than not – some of us aren’t always the best kind of people we’d like to surround ourselves with. Heck! We might not even be currently acting true to our true-selves. Sometimes we are terrible and horrible people. We might call ourselves, “Nice Assholes“, “Dicks” or something else (believe me I know a few people like these) that we use to, we feel, be honest with ourselves and others (and at times a defense mechanism), but it’s also terribly demeaning to who we are as well. What if we dream of being “better” than who we are now? What if we aspire to dare and to dream to be a truly “Good” person and not the “Nice Asshole” or “Dick“? Well now, that falls upon US to do something about it.
This is where I feel the biggest misconception of all comes into play. People believe stuff LIKE this when it does not begin to scratch the surface of bigger, deeper concerns and issues that should be dealt with and healed. Instead we slap a proverbial band-aid on it and say, “Ah well! If they didn’t like you for who you are I guess they weren’t worth having around in the end,” or we say something else that has just about the same meaning. We of course as human beings are naturally bias to protect those we love and care about. To say something positive, uplifting and comforting when those we love are hurting and it feels no one understands them. More

As the title states, today we are talking about the importance of the “Law of Attraction” in our lives. No; I’m not talking about “Romantic” or “Sexual” attraction. No; I’m talking about what we draw to ourselves by what we say, feel, and think. Now I’m not the first to come up with this “Law” of sorts. First time I really knew much about this law was when I listened to a “Books on CD” called The Law of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks. However, I wasn’t a total stranger to the concept of this “law” just when I was a kid – there wasn’t a name for it and I had to figure it out slowly by myself in some cases. Today is about the long and the short of it. I’m not going into a lengthy explanation. If you want that – read the book or get the audio CD.
First of all, what is the “Law of Attraction” and what role does it play into our daily lives? More
