A Three-Month Direct Spiritual Transmission,
starting October 11, 2021
Have constant shamanic support tailored to you.
A direct spiritual transmission is a ritual I perform to give you powerful blessings:
I was born a good luck charm, generating a beneficial field of energy that adapts itself to fulfill your specific physical, spiritual, and emotional needs, even when they change from moment to moment. Perhaps you need * more money
* spiritual strength to get back up after life’s knocked you down
* a soul healing
* other blessings
* or numerous blessings all at once.
You don’t have to attend an event or do any work. Just sign up, and I do the work for you! Receiving this transmission is easy. I have spent decades honing my natural-born gift. Serving you is my privilege, joy, and sacred profession.
Even if you’re a shaman yourself, you deserve a constant ally who has your back.
No experience needed. But adepts are deeply impacted.
I send you this spiritual transmission five days a week, every week for three months. That’s a lot!
Most people feel improvements immediately. And they tend to be cumulative and continue to snowball after the three months have ended. Whether you’ve already made significant changes for the better, are only beginning to improve your life, feel completely stuck, or are on top of the world, major shifts can happen at any moment.
The magic I do helps you whether you’re using all your power or feel you’re not using it at all: * Even if you have enormous power, you still profit greatly from my services. The transmission builds on your achievements, goals, and dreams, helping you soar even higher than the possibly huge flights you’ve already had. And if your magnificent flights hit stormy challenges, I help keep you aloft. * If you feel you are not powerful, the transmission helps you see—and use—your enormous powers. You have them even when you don’t know it. The transmission also furthers your goals and dreams, helping you survive and soar, flying higher and higher.

The closer to California,
the closer to home,
my bones know this.
Cross the state line,
see California’s flag,
Mother Bear, I’m home.
She takes me to Her bosom immediately and immeasurably.
Moving to Pennsylvania 17 years ago,
I thought it’d be permanent.
But not a day passed that I didn’t miss S.F.
I couldn’t admit, even to myself,
till I was back in the City by the Bay,
that when I’d first entered the Pennsylvania house I’d purchased,
I felt rootless, bereft, in exile.
I could never lay down roots in Pennsylvania soil.
No matter how much I tended the land,
how much I healed the land,
how many rituals I did to heal my refugee heart,
my roots remained in California—
for 17 years, I felt like my legs had been torn off,
left in the earth of the West coast.
Years of insomnia.
Then, my first night on the bedrock of Nob Hill,
I fall asleep within 15 minutes.
I know it was 15 because
my audiobook shuts off after 15,
and usually I turn it on for another 15, another 15,
another … but I didn’t hear the audio stop
my first night here.
Three days in my new apartment, I feel at home,
was never at home in Pennsylvania,
but now Mama Bear California holds me
holds me holds me holds me.
The town is filled with gorgeous, young
Hispanic and East Indian men,
their heartfelt eyes smiling at me
above their KN95 masks.
Other youth, artfully shabby
and loose-limbed after their yoga classes,
stalk past like professional predators, each after another.
But Mother Bear fuels the humans
whose hearts are moored to this sandy stretch.
Kush, one of many refugees from S.F.,
phones from New York
to tell me I’m “in eternity. Nob Hill is sacred.”
He adds that my living here “intensifies the sacredness.”
Decades back in S.F., I told him of my sorrow,
sad that, as a shaman,
I did not have a piece of land to tend.
He responded, “The place you used to live on Ellis Street
burned down after you left.”
Oh, I tended it without knowing.
He adds in his recent phone call that “S.F. needs healing.
This is Dreamtime Beach.
San Francisco has the vision, those who have it have it.”
He also explains I am “destined to be in San Francisco.
Think Communitas. Constellation. Ecosystem.
Be attentive to all and weave.”
My friends near and far weave the dream with me.
I do not reject the predators but wrap my heart around them.
There is only we. That is part of the dream,
a piece of eternity. So mote it be!
Dear reader, the first recorded image of a Madonna with child was a bear with Her cubs.
She is the primal Goddess, Mother of all Who manifests as mighty currents sweeping throughout the universe to carry us to our dearest goals.
She also reveals Herself as a living, loving presence in every rock, blade of grass, and human heart.
She is Eternity in every rock, blade of grass, and human heart.
I feel Her no matter where I am but find it much more challenging to nestle into Her love and Living Eternity in some places and circumstances.
Always journeying with Her, running toward Her, running away from Her—even when I’m stationary—life is a travel adventure.

My fantasy novel will be released soon. Eek! I’m a little scared but am mostly happy, excited, and smiling. This is fun.
Above is the cover’s final version hopefully.
2004 and the few years immediately following were difficult for me. During that time, I wrote this book for sheer escapism, running from my problems to play in a fantasy realm.
The book’s ceremonies, spirits, and other portrayals of otherworldly matters aren’t meant as authentic depictions. This is a work of imagination, written to entertain me. Use a ritual in this book, and your head might explode. For authoritative otherworldly information, see my non-fiction work.
I’m grateful the Muse brought me the book’s characters during one of the hardest periods of my life. I moved on to happy days, partially because working with these characters to create their personalities, motivations, and stories entertained me so much that I did not get utterly lost in my problems.
The manuscript languished on my computer all these years, for a variety of reasons. Now, the book’s characters want to be out in the world. It’s their time. So mote it be!
I’m reading the manuscript again, after years. It’s lovely to visit with these characters once more. Both heroes and villains are like friends to me, I love them all, and they entertain me even now, after all our time apart. I soooo want to introduce them to you.
People Like Us, Demons Like Them will be available only from the author.
More to follow, soon. Don’t miss the release announcement. Subscribe to my newsletter by clicking this banner:
We’ll gather via teleseminars—group meetings by telephone. Just dial your phone to attend.
This will be the fairy witch’s ancient magics—both enchanted and down-to-earth, with rituals to reach spiritual, worldly, and mystical goals.
We’ll do practical spells for abundance, wisdom, serenity, joy, pleasure, ease, and more, using the ways of our ancestors. We’ll also enliven and celebrate our Fey nature.
Like the ancient Druid, we’ll draw on the various powers of the year:
Monthly Moon Rites * The Old Lunar Tree Calendar * Sacred Trees Rituals * Eight Sacred Fairy Holidays * Life Based in the Annual Solar and Vegetative Cycles * Healing from Gaia * Healing for Gaia *
Here are explanations of the above fairy witchcraft powers, all of which are part of every year’s passage:
1) Monthly Moon Rites
Based in the Lunar Tree Calendar
The ancient lunar tree calendar has thirteen months instead of our modern twelve. The ancient calendar month is measured by the moon’s cycles–its waxing and waning.
Each moon cycle holds a special power: lore tells us the moon’s magic is different every month of the year. We’ll use the special magical power of each month’s moon.
2) The Druids’ Sacred Trees Rituals
Every tree offers us particular enchantments. E.g., birch has different magics than oak or rowan. In the lunar calendar, each month has a corresponding tree, whose powers come forth especially during that moon cycle. Our yearlong mystical journey will be empowered by the specific enchantments of each month’s sacred tree.
The Welsh expression, dod yn ôl at fy nghoed, which means “to return to a balanced state of mind,” translates literally as “to return to my trees.” The trees will bless us with their wisdom, peace, healing, beauty, and magics, to help us reach our life goals and fulfill our spirits.
3) The Eight Sacred Sabbats (Pagan Seasonal Holidays)
We’ll perform rituals for the eight Sabbats of the year—eight Pagan holidays that are sacred to the Fey Folk.
Each of these days is a crux of magical power—a spectacular moment of power we can draw on to cast strong spells.
4) Life Based in the Annual Solar and Vegetative Cycles
We’ll honor the seasons—as opposed to only the Sabbats—drawing on the year’s solar and vegetative cycles, both ritually and on the earthly plane.
These cycles are alive in our own beings. By harmonizing with the seasons, your cells will harmonize with each other, creating spiritual and physical health, strengthening intuition and other magical powers, and letting Gaia enchant your life to bring your deepest wishes into being.
Solar magic, the magic of the annual vegetative cycles, and Sabbats rituals go deep into the Mysteries of our relationship with the old fairy Gods.
The yearwheel magics I’ve discussed can be woven together as a whole, which we will do. In that weave, these Fey enchantments come together into an astoundingly effective journey into prosperity, peace of mind, and other spiritual, mystical, and worldly needs.
How We’ll Weave Year Wheel Magics Together
I had visions of the cosmos, in which the various year-wheel magics—lunar, tree, solar, vegetative, sabbats—weave together as a whole, instead of being held as distinctly separate parts, which is the more common understanding. The visions showed how this weaving had been designed by the Old Gods, and how I might use Their design when I channel rituals.
Our rituals throughout the year will be this weaving of the lunar, tree, solar, vegetative, sabbats—to create a whole far greater than the sum of its parts. It’ll be the truly Pagan experience our ancestors lived; we can really be of the earth, be with the earth, and live with the Old Gods by our sides.
This weaving will also provide an opportunity for powerful healings of—and from—Gaia.
More benefits from weaving the year-wheel magics together:
Our Heritage as Children of the Old Gods
We are fey-touched. Starlight runs in our veins. The fairy Gods are our ancestors Who still want to walk with us today.
Our heritage as Their children is abundance, wisdom, pleasure, and ease. Our heritage is the fulfillment of our life goals and strength in our magic, bodies, and spirits.
The year-wheel’s natural patterns are the living presence of the Gods’ magic and love for us. My careful integration of the various year-wheel powers will help you live in tune with and enjoy the year-wheel. Thus, you live more fully in the Gods’ care that They may empower you to reclaim your heritage. In other words:
Oppressors have tried to rob us of our divine legacy. In our twelve-month quest, we’ll reclaim our inheritance by living in the old calendar. We’ll embrace the powers of the Old Ways that our Gods want for us. So mote it be!
To be in harmony with the year’s turning, we’ll not only use the aforementioned yearwheel magics, but also a sprinkling of
* Herbal Enchantments
* Kitchen Magic
* Animal Totems
Using herbal, hearth, and totemic rites according to seasonal cycles will help integrate the yearwheel’s power and its rituals even more deeply into our lives.
My shamanic approach helps you honor your whole self, so you, for example, don’t have to choose between being an artist or a psychic, a logical thinker or an intuitive, a responsible family member or a mystic, but can be both.
You’ll find that our year with the trees, by weaving different styles of magics together, will help you live in the weave that is the entire cosmos, an experience that in turn will unite your many aspects and help you fully express them. This year-wheel rite nurtures all your powers and honors all your emotions, ideas, and other facets. Imagine such happy fullness of being!
I am a fairy Druid, refusing to let my spirit be subdued. This journey will uphold me and my fellow travelers. It can deliver everything this post promises because my ceremonies are carefully constructed and well-rooted: our shamanic journey will use material I channeled over decades. The year-long rite will draw on a lifetime of developing shamanic theories, techniques, and liturgy.
In the ‘80s, I taught that the yearwheel is more than the eight Sabbats. I believed in going beyond the Sabbats to honor each, entire season and live according to that season. My students and I celebrated both the Sabbats and the whole year’s wonders, as will happen in the upcoming yearwheel group.
In the ‘80s, the term year wheel was mostly used to refer to the Sabbats exclusively. That felt so wrong to me, when the whole year’s wheel offered such special blessings as part of its turning. My year-wheel ideas, practically unheard of in modern Paganism, were met with resistance, not by my students but by the larger Pagan community.
I am 70 years old. This event is one of the culminations of all my years of teaching and of living as a Pagan. I have so many innovative yearwheel magics and theories to weave together into A Year with the Trees.
I’ve wanted to offer A Year with the Trees for decades, but the time never seemed right. Special thanks to three of my dear initiates who told me what would be helpful to them in their shamanic journey right now. They and another of my fellow travelers illuminated my mind and heart; I knew the time had come.
A bell rang out from faery, and I knew I must lead this yearlong rite—oh, to thus live in the love of the Old Gods made manifest is pure joy.
This yearwheel journey has three powerful parts:
1) Our Circle Meetings. The group meets via teleseminars—group phone-calls. To participate, just dial your phone.
Beginners will be taught what they need to take this journey, but the material will be rich enough for the most advanced practitioners.
We’ll work in old-style oral tradition, allowing immense headway quickly. Enrollment is limited to 16 people, so we can perform ceremonies that can only happen in a small group, and so each participant can receive individualized attention, should they want that support.
A shamanic journey is personal. Traditional shamanic circles include the chance for individualized attention, which tailors the journey to you.
2) You receive spiritual transmissions, in every meeting.
Spiritual transmissions are an ancient Faery Faith method that deepens the experiential nature of the lessons, increases the serenity, power, and safety of your shamanic journey, fosters personal growth, and adds good luck to your life overall.
3) I commit to my students. Part of oral tradition is the teacher being available. You can phone me, should you have a concern that’d take too long to address during class or that you prefer to discuss privately.
Choose to be in one of two groups:
* One will meet Sundays, noon to 1:00, EST, starting July 11.
* The other meets Mondays, 6:00 to 7:00 pm EST, starting July 12.
Both groups will have 43 meetings. We gather in ritual together once a week, usually for seven consecutive weeks, after which we break for a week or more, before another seven consecutive weeks.
Breaks will be the weeks of August 29, September 5, October 31, November 21, December 19th, December 26, January 2, January 16, March 20, March 27, May 22, May 29.
Reserve Sunday noon or Monday 6 PM, depending on which group you choose, on the weeks of July 31 and August 7, for makeup sessions in case I am unavailable for some of the planned sessions.
A year might seem like too much of a commitment, but the schedule isn’t overwhelming. Meetings will span 55 weeks, with 12 weeks off. During the holiday season, weeks won’t always be consecutive, so you have time for holiday celebrations and obligations. January’s schedule is lighter too, since many individuals prefer January be somewhat laid back.
Full cost—for 43 meetings, direct spiritual transmissions, and one-on-one private support should you desire—is $200 a month. Your carrier might charge you for the phone calls into the rituals.
Enroll securely with PayPal. After giving your phone number and choosing the Sunday or Monday group, click the Subscribe button to make twelve automatic monthly payments of $200:
Upon payment, your place is reserved. No refunds. However, if you choose to drop out at any point, cancel your subscription, and I won’t expect further payments.
A few days before the first meeting, you receive event phone number and other details by email.
For more information or to discuss scholarship, semi-scholarship, trade, or a payment plan other than the subscription, phone me.
Join me on this quest for power, visions, and fulfillment. Align yourself with nature’s beauty that you may draw on it to embody your values and goals and know your worldly, spiritual, and mystical strength.

FairyTale Forests, Witchcraft,
and the Journey to Power
Shamanic Quests, Folk Tales, & Enchanted Forests
Trees love witches, druids, and other magical beings, blessing us with peace, joy, and strength. There’s a good reason fairy tales and folk tales depict journeys into the woods as enchanted events and quests for power.
When I think of forests, fairytales, and quests, what comes to mind is Hansel and Gretel’s saga, with its lost trail of breadcrumbs and their encounter with a witch. What comes to mind also is little Red Riding Hood’s story of venturing toward grandmother’s house, meeting the wolf en route, and the miraculous rescue from the wolf’s belly. These are stories about quests—overcoming tremendous problems and coming to power—in which magic inevitably figures.
Sometimes, in fairytales, not a forest but a single tree or small grove is pivotal to the quest. For example, a tree holds the spirit of the protagonist’s deceased mother who helps that heroic figure overcome dire challenges. We need not go into the woods to receive aid from trees.
Every single tree has power and a dryad. What is a dryad? Greek lore tells us a spirit lives in a tree. Such a spirit is called a dryad.
The Joy and Peace of a Visit with Trees
The idea of entering the woods elicits memories of my eager, expectant wanderings into shaded forests I’d never visited previously. I always know there’ll be new magic and wonder to explore. I also know my peace will be renewed.
Going into the woods also reminds me of laughing with friends as we ran free and joyously—literally ran—through a forest that was our beloved magical playground.
It’s no surprise that forests are dear to witches, druids, and other individuals who follow a Pagan path. There are many reasons for this, but one is: the joy and serenity we might find in the forest is par none.
Joy and calm might also be experienced if one can sense the energy or dryad of a solitary tree that blesses an urban street.
A Shamanic Journey into the Woods and the Self
Whether as a long arduous hike, a brief stroll through the woods for part of one’s weekly exercise, a fictitious narrative, or a piece of old lore, traveling into the woods often equates with a journey to self-realization, inner power, and confidence. As such, going into the woods is an easily accessible symbol for something subtle and hard to portray; often, the journey to self is unseen, has no visible trappings, and is much quieter than facing a wolf or avoiding being shoved into a candy-house oven.
A druid, witch, or other individual drawn to nature spirituality might journey to power in hidden, quietly blessed shadows of a forest. That trek can be more frightening than the wolf’s brutal teeth or the oven’s fierce fires. And just as dramatic.
One’s own self is definitely among the hidden places of enormous power, and traveling into self is the wildest—and sometimes most frightening—shamanic quest.
How to Ask Trees for Magical Help
All trees are enchanted, having powers with which they might help us move toward joy, power, freedom, prosperity, and self-fulfillment. When in a forest, or near any tree, simply request help. You can do so by using the following liturgy or whatever other way feels right to you.
Prayer to a Tree
Beloved tree(s), please
hold me safe in my journey,
uplift my spirit,
strengthen my resolve,
bless my goals,
and grant me the joy and beauty of your company.
So mote it be!
The Magic of the Alder Tree
Each tree also has its own special magics to help our journeys. For example, Alder tree told me it can center you into your essence—your true self. You can ask an alder tree to do that, if you come upon an alder in your wandering. Here’s a prayer I wrote for that:
Prayer to an Alder Tree
Sweet Fey Alder,
please help stay me in my power,
my chosen goals,
and my journey ever forward.
Alder magic can be subtle. If you don’t feel anything right after the prayer, the tree might nonetheless be already helping you a lot. It might take time to notice. Or, as is the case with any magic, it might take time to bear fruit.
You could also make that prayer when no trees are nearby if you happen to have a piece of Alder wood you can hold while you pray. Or if you feel a personal connection to Alder, make the prayer even if there’s no Alder wood or alder tree nearby.
Here’s a talisman Alder pendant I made, so you can see this gorgeous wood and, if you want, tune into Alder’s energy:
There are many trees on this planet ready and wanting to love you, support you, and smile with you.
Helping the Trees
If you’re devoted to nature spirituality, you’re probably also devoted to environmentalism. Magic honors the give-and-take of life: the trees help us, and we help them. When you ask a tree for help, consider giving it some water and fertilizer afterwards. And it’s always a good day to hug a tree, plant a tree, fertilize a tree, write to an elected official to support environmental action, or otherwise be a friend to trees. So mote it be!

Pay securely with PayPal: click the Pay Now button.
The blessing ceremonies are spiritual transmissions. Definitions of a spiritual transmission vary. I don’t know anyone who defines it the way I describe it here:
I’m a good-luck charm: I was born generating a beneficial fairy energy that adapts to your needs, e.g., personal growth, peace, financial well-being, safety, physical health, mystical openings, the removal of self-defeating beliefs that stop you from working toward your dreams enough, or the strength to get back up when life’s knocked you down. (These examples are types of abundance, peace, or fulfillment, so the upcoming ceremony can deliver them.)
The transmission adapts to help create changes you need inside and outside of you, smoothing the road toward a blessed life.
My spiritual transmissions (or call them direct spiritual transmissions) don’t focus on only one benefit, but bless you as a whole being and add luck to your life overall.
I don’t have to know what you need before sending your transmission because its energy automatically adapts to you.
From birth, I was raised to hone my gift.
From my earliest memory, my mother wrapped the ancient Faery Faith around me, not as an abstract idea but as a living, loving magic. For one thing, my Fey-touched mom’s extraordinary and all-encompassing maternal love was an amazing role model for doing transmissions.
Most recipients of my transmissions experience it as a truly personal energy from me, including a sense I really care about them as individuals. I often receive emails saying this. I think that sense of intimacy and caring reflects my feelings of love for my clients, even if I know nothing about an individual who’s requested a transmission.
My transmissions tend to provide both immediate and long-lasting results.
Forgive me if my explanation of transmissions doesn’t thoroughly, sufficiently describe how I perform the three-week ceremony. It’s near impossible to put into words, even if I write at length. But the important thing is: you receive immense benefits.
Five days a week for three weeks is a lot of fairy magic being done on your behalf—a bounty of blessings.
Enrolling for this ceremony is a way to let Divine love from the Fairy realms surround you and open doors to miracles.
Enrolling is a way to grab hope and pull it close, embrace magic, and affirm you deserve many good things.
Enrolling is a way to choose the “impossible”—a fairy-blessed life that transcends the limits of so-called reality, so our wild-hearted dreams come true.

I designed, painted, and constructed the houses in these photos to make myself a Fairy village.
The pics are just quick photos, and this is not the final setup. I just put all the cottages together so you could see them. I haven’t finished making the fences and hedges or deciding how to set the village up nicely to display it in my home. I also designed more cottages I hadn’t assembled yet when I took the photos.
I’m writing assembly instructions now, so hope to be able to give the PDFs away soon.
Am also writing more for this post, to share the spiritual process I went through designing, painting, and constructing this collection of fairy houses. It helped me through a rough patch. My describing how so will hopefully be useful to someone.
The Simplest Guide to Healthy Eating You’ll Ever Read
And Food in Witch Spirituality
This post was requested by a friend who wants to eat healthily without learning to cook. He provided the post’s great title. I hope the following is useful to him and to anyone who wants to eat healthily but simply.
Though this site focuses on Earth Spirituality, this food guide is for you whatever your spiritual path. My Goddess wants to help someone, regardless of their spiritual leanings. I try to follow suit. The guide is a way I can support health in all individuals.
Before we get into the guide:
Food, Druids, Trees, Magic, and the Yearwheel
If you came to the site because you know I’m a witch, and you’re looking for magic, here’s how this article is relevant.
Before I started eating more healthily 40 years ago, finding my spiritual center or magic was near impossible, by and large. (In those days, some of my eating was quite healthy. My choices about food were in many ways healthier than the majority of Americans’. But a lot my eating habits were dreadful, with awful consequences despite all the good foods I ate.)
Pseudo-foods seemed to fill up every psychic pore in my body so my otherworldly perceptions were greatly diminished.
Pseudo-foods dulled my spirit, so I could barely feel my innate spiritual power and connection to my Gods. A shamanic journey would’ve almost been a waste of time.
I could not find my life goals to any significant degree, let alone follow through on them.
In contrast, now that I eat healthily almost entirely, my life is completely different. I experience harmony with nature. As the seasons turn throughout the year wheel, I’m empowered by each turn and season.
I feel the sacredness of trees and can be filled by their wisdom and love.
As the moon waxes and wanes, the tides within me respond in celebration. In monthly moon rites, lunar power surrounds me with love—a love that could not get through to me when pseudo foods stood in the way by dulling my mind, body, and spirit.
The Sabbats—eight Pagan holidays that mark the annual solar and vegetative cycles—echo in my heart.
And now I have spiritual fortitude to follow through on my goals, instead of being the limp wet noodle I was when eating poorly.
I also have the strength to follow through on my love of Mother Earth, by taking mundane and mystical actions to heal Gaia.
Food is a way we can closely interact with nature and gain its physical and etheric benefits. My Gods live in nature, so food is a sacrament, miraculous in its ability to create a healthy body and spirit.
The humble kitchen is the center of the universe, or at least is one of its centers. Many druids, witches, and other nature lovers—myself included—go to a forest to find themselves and Divinity. I find all that in the kitchen, too.
And with that, let’s talk simple food:
Why I Learned to Eat Simply and Still Often Do
In 1980, I completely overhauled my diet for medical reasons. Such a huge dietary change was near overwhelming, so I kept meals very simple at first. This allowed me to make the shifts needed.
I didn’t want to eat this simply forever. Establishing easy, healthy eating habits laid the groundwork for me to later prepare elaborate, wholesome meals.
I grew up in a family of chefs and excellent cooks, adore food, and was delighted once I was able to start cooking healthy fancyyyyy meals. I learned how to make healthy tortes, truffles, and many other delicious things. But I never would’ve gotten to this point without allowing myself to keep food extremely streamlined for a while.
Sustaining healthy habits is easier if you enjoy them a reasonable amount of the time. Even though I now do a lot of intricate cooking, I still relish all the simple foods I’m going to suggest below. I grab them not only when I have no or little time for food prep, but also because I enjoy them bunches.
The American idea that a meal has to include meat or a glut of unrefined carbs does not support health, though it does help many a doctor pay their mortgage. I’m not one to deprive myself. This post offers substantial, belly-filling meals.
To make eating healthily even easier for you, the guide has links to purchase most of the items I suggest. The two companies to which I link are ethical providers of quality food, and I purchase from them on a regular basis.
Thrive Market, to which many of the links in this post lead, is an ethical alternative to Amazon’s grocery section. Thrive offers membership, which reduces costs. If you’re low income, membership is free. Last I knew, free membership requires only a quick application, instead of jumping through the endless hoops that lower-income individuals usually have to struggle through to get help.
All foods to which I link are organic and items I’ve tried myself unless otherwise noted.
This post covers all the food groups, so you can combine various suggestions to make a full meal.
And with that:

My mom raised me right: I grew up loving celery sticks filled with peanut butter. Wash off your celery sticks, chop off both ends, spread peanut butter inside the cavity that goes the length of the celery, eat. Simple.
Feeling lazy? Sit down with celery sticks and a jar of peanut butter. Start dipping. Children do it, which proves it’s a nice eating experience. … If you want to be more civilized, plop some peanut butter on a plate before you start dipping. If you want to be posh, it take three minutes to prepare it the way it tastes best, spreading the peanut butter into the celery “trough.”
Here are two salt-free peanut butters you can purchase online. The first is creamy, the second crunchy. I haven’t tried these myself, so let me know what you think:
I prefer salted peanut butter, but I did not see an online link for it. Nothing wrong with salt if you don’t overdo it, and your doctor allows it.
Purchase peanut butter that does not have hydrogenated oil. It keeps the peanut oil from rising to the top of the butter but is not good for you physically. You will need to stir your peanut butter after purchase, so the oil is folded back into the body of the peanut butter. Also choose peanut butter that’s sugar-free. I promise you: sugar-free peanut butter without hydrogenated oil is extra yummy. Back to celery and peanut butter:
I’m not saying celery and peanut butter constitutes a full meal. To round out the meal, you might add some cheese on wholegrain bread, spread with organic butter. The cheese combines with the nuts to increase the protein value in both. Butter is a healthy food, despite opinions to the contrary. If the butter is organic, you’re good to go. I prefer unsalted butter, which tends to be much fresher.
Whole grain bread—or rice cakes—spread with butter can be paired with many food suggestions here, to create a full meal.
Want more vegetables in the meal along with the celery? Scroll down to the section Veggies are Gods.
Speaking of children and peanut butter, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are the bomb, if ingredients are wholesome. Three yummy, organic sugar-free jams:
Adding a glass of milk to the P&B sandwich once again rounds out the protein, for a nice meal that reminds me of my youth, eating and daydreaming at the kitchen table after school, before Mom and Dad got home.
Oh, and dates! I grew up loving dates filled with peanut butter.
And a banana dipped in peanut butter? Heaven!
Organic wholegrain bread is easily available unless you’re in a food desert. Since I bake my own organic wholegrain bread, I do not know online sources for it. If you have one, please let me know so I can include it in this post.
Organic wholegrain crackers are available online. So are wholegrain rice cakes.
Styrofoam—that’s what most rice cakes taste like, and they seem 90% air. I found rice cakes that taste great and are substantive. Plus, instead of the junk some rice cakes have, they’re simple yet yummy. They’re in the photo to the right.
Nuts Are Nutritious
Nuts are a mainstay in my kitchen. Their quick protein helps keep me going when I’m in the middle of a deadline.
Raw organic shelled nuts prevail in my kitchen. I buy them at my local co-op. Brazil nuts, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts.
Preparing this plate of tomatoes with mozzarella cheese, drizzled with olive oil is a tiny bit of work but not challenging.
* Slice a medium or large tomato into slices about 1/ third of an inch thick. Don’t worry too much about how thick they are. It’s all good.
* Spread the slices across a plate.
* Lay thin slices of mozzarella cheese over it, or grated mozzarella.
* Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle on some salt, if you want. Voila, fahncy salad, get a knife and fork, dig in. Years back, this was a trendy posh dish.
Procuring the large amount of vegetables I need to eat to maintain my health is difficult. But it is possible.
My area doesn’t always have the best produce. I suspect some distributors send us their lesser quality foods. Some of the veggies are downright rotten.
My area does have organic vegetables, shipped in from around the country. Again, it’s not always worth buying, but some of it is fine. During summer, local farmers offer produce.
Using my freezer, which is built into my refrigerator but larger than most refrigerator freezers, is part of how I manage to eat enough veggies.
Many chain grocery stores now offer frozen organic vegetables.
When Covid hit, it was winter here, when there are no local vegetables. I was concerned that vegetables might not be shipped in anymore. I went online and started exploring canned organic vegetables and stocked up on them. Not my ideal, but an option. There are canned veggies at Thrive.
I also stocked up on frozen organics more than usual.
Meat is a Sacrament
I’m not a vegetarian, though I support those who are. I believe some body types need meat. Two acupuncturists told me my particular body needs meat.
It’s not in my diet in the typical American way; I don’t consume huge quantities of it, eating it at every meal, but I do need some almost every week.
I consider meat a sacrament. An animal gave its life that I might thrive.
There was a time when, if a poor person was ill, one of their family members would go to someone wealthy and ask for beef. Beef was considered medicine.
It makes me sad that something holy and medicinal has been turned into a food addiction that’s destroying our planet. Meat consumption and production can be done in a balanced way.
Enter Grassland Beef, an ethical company with awesome products (and excellent customer service. Thrive too has excellent customer service.)
Their meat is not officially organic but is organic in fact. The high cost of certification keeps many farmers from being certified.
Including organ meats in your diet, instead of only muscle meats, is not only better for our health but better for the planet. Consuming more parts of an animal is common sense. And organ meats are incredibly good for you.
Purchase only organic organ meats. Otherwise, they can be especially toxic.
I’m including one recipe here that requires cooking: hard boiled eggs.
Boiling up a half a dozen eggs is easy, and then I have quick protein ready when I’m hungry:
* Put a half dozen eggs in a pot.
* Cover with water.
* Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
* Lower the heat to simmer, and let the water simmer for two minutes. What is simmer? Simmer is when the bubbles barely break the water’s surface. It’s not the furious bubbling of boiling water but much more gentle.
* Turn off the heat and let eggs stand in the hot water for 10 minutes, during which time they will continue to cook.
* Drain off the water, and you have hard-boiled eggs.
* Store them in the fridge in their shells.
Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
While I sometimes satisfy my sweet tooth with fresh or dried fruit, or jam, there is also the Larabar. Though not organic, LaraBars have helped sustain me through many a deadline. A couple of Larabars, a glass of milk, and then munching on some vegetables while I continue to plow ahead on a deadline is a pleasure.
You now have a good beginning. Try a few of these ideas, keep an eye out for similar options as you browse the grocery store, and soon you’ll have a substantial repertoire.
If you want more suggestions for easy to prepare healthy meals and snacks, let me know.
Also, I need cooked food for my overall diet to be healthy. If you want to try a bit of cooking, I can give you the simplest recipes for healthy cooking you’ll ever read. Let me know if you’d like that.

To learn tree root magic, I followed my propensity to learn the magical properties of trees directly, instead of secondhand—I woodwork and sit with trees.
I became obsessed with tree roots. Here’s what I sensed about some tree roots I encountered. The post also includes photos of tree root pendants I made.
Tree Roots Make Miracles
The tree roots I worked with had palpable energy. It was almost visible to the eye.
Their energy bypasses time and anything else that could completely block or even delay one’s goals. In that vein, using tree roots magically (which could mean simply wearing a pendant made of a tree root), I experience the archetype of magic: miracles come to pass against all logic and reason. This occurs in a specific manner:
Obstacles Become Irrelevant
Obstacles to the fulfillment of my wishes become a non-issue; I reach goals regardless of obstacles, and without acknowledging them or otherwise dealing with them.
I’m not suggesting tree root magic, in ignoring an obstacle, blasts through it without even noticing. I’m saying I needn’t concern myself magically with an obstacle to my desired goal—needn’t remove barriers, circumvent barriers, or deal with them any other way. I needn’t limit myself by fixating on the route to my goals (in the sense of believing I must remove blocks in order for the route they are blocking to open for me); magic will get me there along the route that magic chooses.
To reiterate and expand on what I’ve said: Roadblocks are a non-issue because, even if all impediments remain in place, my wish is fulfilled because tree roots are truly magic, the essential archetype of it, fulfilling my wishes against all reason, helping me dwell in a realm where I’m not hemmed as I would be living in the logical world—and the road blocks it insists will hinder me—but can instead trust in an enchanted world.
Going About My Merry Way
My experience that tree root magic can bypass obstacles without necessarily even removing them affirms my belief about life overall: I find it vital, when at all possible, to leave the parts of life that aren’t “mine” as is; that includes neither removing blocks or otherwise dealing with them, but just going about my merry way; a focus on removing blocks or otherwise dealing with them distracts me from living my life and working toward my goals. Of course, there are many times we have to remove blocks, but I’m not addressing those times here.
Not Pulling the Foundation Out from Under Myself
When I told a student of mine (who prefers to remain anonymous) that I felt tree root magic bypasses obstacles without even removing them, he had an brilliant insight: roots, as they grow, move around stones and other impediments, which become part of the foundation of the tree, holding it firmly in place. I love that idea. It affirms my desire to leave what isn’t “mine” as is, and affirms my belief that everything has its place so if, in my magic or another part of life, I fuss with something that’s “not mine,” I might actually harm myself in the long run, e.g., pull a foundation out from under me. Instead, I want to refrain from either moving something to get it out of my way or making it part of my foundation. (There are, of course, many exceptions to this.)
Blackthorn tree root pendant:
Thoughts from a Root Worker and a Sister Wood Witch
My sense of tree root magic is congruent with what Kate, an amazing woodworker, wrote me: “I’ve been told by a root worker that roots have a kind of distilled version of the tree energy. … I’ve always found roots of all kinds to be tenacious, persevering, ancient and ageless at the same time. … They’re also in touch with the dark, hidden, secret magics and ancient truths.”
(I’ve never heard the term Wood Witch. I made it up— though I imagine someone else has used the term at some point, though perhaps not to mean the same thing I mean. Wood Witch—that makes me happy. To my knowledge, there aren’t many witches who dedicate themselves to crafting magical wood items, and coining a term for it feels like it affirms the important enchantment of such crafting and adds yet more magic to the items.)
I promised posts about the magical properties of trees and, after posting some blogs of that nature, I had to stop adding more for a bit. If you’re a writer, you know what that’s like; you work on one project full-tilt and then your writing energy needs to go elsewhere for a while.
So I’m happy to have gotten this post up today. I must’ve written it a few years ago!
… Except, I want to add this now:
Synchronicity: I’m realizing tree root magic is exactly what I need right now. I’m going to put on one of my tree root pendants and, some time soon, make a few more, which will be available for sale. I have a few pieces of tree root left I can woodwork. When I make a wood amulet, even one I’m going to sell, its magic surrounds me and fills my day. I love making talismans. It’s truly a spiritual discipline for me and part of my ongoing shamanic journey.
My newsletter subscribers usually get first dibs on the talismans I make. I don’t have time to make many talismans for sale, and the crafting of each one is very personal to me, so I like them going mostly to folks kind enough to subscribe to my newsletter. Click the banner below to subscribe.

Folk Art, Magic, the Faery Faith, Herbs, and Chores
Folk art is magical, evoking the Faery Faith—an ancient spiritual path. Folk art often adorns everyday items, which can enchant them and bless mundane chores.
Fairies Hide in the Flowers
When I was a little girl and first saw a floral painting in a folk art style, I found it magical. I think fairies hide in folk art flowers. Above is a painting I just finished.
Though I was never taught this (except by my heart and my Gods), I think the folk art of various cultures is inextricably woven with the Faery Faith—the ancient spiritual path of many a witch—as it is expressed in those cultures. I love that folk art is not elitist but down-to-earth, often used to adorn everyday items and blessing those items with enchantments I find to be innate in folk art.
I got lost in the painting while I was making it. When I finished it, I realized that, while painting, I’d wandered into other realms.
The piece might be good as magical ornamentation on a Book of Shadows page to give my students as a handout in an upcoming witchcraft course.
I work hard on my palettes. I love color and putting together unusual color combinations. Doing this, too, brings me to other realms.
A friend of mine said the above painting is really happy. That made my day. I don’t want ivory-tower art. Art that might give someone even a little boost of happiness means the world to me.
I am thrilled: my new brush set made rosemaling brush strokes so much easier. (Rosemaling is a style of decorating objects.) The pictures in this post were done using the new brushes and perhaps some other brushes.
Actually, I should say I am “kind of” doing rosemaling brushstrokes. I can’t claim to do the brushwork the way it’s typically done. But I don’t want to because it’s not relevant to my goals as a creator of talismanic art.
Mind you, I have great admiration for people who do traditional rosemaling. And if someone’s magic and creativity are uplifted by adhering to a commonly accepted method, that’s wonderful.
However, too often, the measure of what constitutes folk art, whether in painting, dance, or another form, is biased, perhaps gleaned from just one example of an art form as it was done in a single household or village. While these examples might be extraordinary artistic expressions, the use of them as standardized measures can invalidate and squelch other expressions of that form.
Folk Art is the Art of the Folk
Many supposedly authentic folk measures would shame you for your creativity and might, if you adhere to those measures, squash your magic and originality.
I cannot imagine Faeries gathering to enjoy themselves and insisting that every single Fey must dance the same or sing the same.
I imagine some of them having a fun contest where each sprite creates a new flower, unlike anything seen before, and the other Fairies cheer them on.
There has to be room in folk art for both the traditional and the new. Without that, it’s no longer the art of the folk.
I love tradition and have, for example, trained vigorously in some magical traditions, but I want tradition to inform and empower me, not pummel me. For example, I took great care and time to research and then mix colors for a palette of colors often used in the middle ages to ornament sacred texts. I learned so much from the doing that, my artistic predecessors of the middle ages were astonishingly skilled and had much to teach me, and I am proud of the artwork I did as a result. However, as I said above, creating unusual color combinations brings me into Fey realms. Mindlessly following what’s traditional in, for example, rosemale or medieval texts, would keep me from my innovative color combinations and other fruitful explorations.
Making Beautiful Everyday Objects
I like to paint to ornament my newsletters and blogs. It’s an act of respect and love for my subscribers and website visitors. I just finished painting this banner to go at the top of my newsletter:
Long story short, I can’t use sharp, crisp representations of my art for the newsletter graphics. Ditto my art in my blogs. But I add the art to the blogs and newsletters anyway, not only out of respect but also because I want to bring as much beauty and magic as I can to everything I do.
I’m grateful I can provide crisp detailed clarity of my artwork in my digital books and witch class handouts. I want to give the best I can in everything I do. That includes bringing witchy art as much as possible to the daily life of the individuals with whom I interact and to my own life.
Herbs and Enchanted Herb Labels
I used my new brushes to paint some herb labels. I’m pretty much the cliche of a witch, with my shelf after shelf of herbs—herbs for magic, herbs for physical health, and herbs for culinary purposes. Usually any herb I use for one purpose, I am also using for one or both of the others.
I love pretty labels on my herbs. Seeing the ornamentation as I search my shelves to decide which herbs I want makes me happy. Again, that simple benefit is important to me. Life can be hard. I want to make sure it’s also beautiful.
The labels also add gravitas to my use of herbs in cooking, healing, and magic spells. This is what folk art often does: illuminate the importance of all our activities, including our many mundane chores.
I find the herb labels magical for three reasons.
1) As I said, I experience folk art as innately magical. Use it to adorn something, and you’ve added magic to that object.
2) I sense energy in my artwork and might’ve thought I was deluded but have been told repeatedly that tangible energy rises off my art as well as off the printed pages of the Pagan liturgies and lessons I write. I think such energy happens when I paint or write or teach or do a lot of other things. The many reasons for that are beyond the scope of this post, but one reason is that I’m magical and pour myself into everything I do.
3) When you take your life seriously enough to adorn your everyday objects or find beautiful ones, the Fey Folk celebrate and bless those objects. No wonder some people want to restrict folk art to strict, narrowly-defined parameters; they don’t want all that magical power in the hands of folks. Often, the restrictive measures are based in sexist or other oppressive agendas.
If you decide to make your own herbal labels, a suggestion: I don’t like to deal with glue when labeling herbs. It’s always a pain to wash it off later. I prefer to punch a hole in the corner of the tag, string a pretty cord through the hole, write on the back of the card the name of the herb I want identified, and tie the cord around a jar with that herb in it.
A PDF of the tags in these photos will be a giveaway in my next newsletter. Then newsletter subscribers can print the labels on card stock to make their own labels. When I share magic and beauty, it comes back to me threefold.
