    This is a spell to help draw your pet back to you. Pets are tuned in psychically to their owners and will respond to an invisable call even from a distance. Place some food and milk/water in the pets familiar bowls. Light a blue candle next to them, and say: "My fair beauty gone astray, please come...

  • What is the opposite of faith?

    Posted December 10, 2011 by Drs. V Merit, Metaphysician

    A lot of people would say doubt. But that won’t do. There is, for sure, a kind of doubt that is entirely negative, which puts faith in jeopardy. But I suspect the main kind of doubt with which we are familiar is the kind that asks questions – and that won’t be fobbed off with uncon...

  • Something to keep in mind

    Posted December 10, 2011 by Tammie, Rev Wonder

    It seems as we continue to expand our gifts, and knowledge of those things unseen, many are getting more into the spiritual realms.  They are seeking other avenues of healing, "seeing" and the knowing.  We want to connect to The Source... to learn all we can. But one thing I have noticed,...

    Posted December 9, 2011 by Therasa-Ann Reich

    I became ordained as a minister because I believe that two people should be able to marry legally, regardless of their sex, spiritual beliefs, culture, etc.   The reason that I joined the Directory was for personal growth. I want to expose myself to beliefs, ideas, cultures, and so many other...

  • Having faith

    Posted December 6, 2011 by Danielle Andrewson

    Such an odd choice of words don't you think?  Faith can mean a number of things, faith in yourself, others, a higher power its all faith, and whether we choose to look away from it and say that we don't need it in our life, the fact of the matter is that no one has the answer to everything and ...

    I have a friend who I think has a lot of talent, his folk songs are soulful and inspiring, and his playing style is unique.  He taught himself guitar and has never played a cover song in his life, which gives his songs an uncommon freshness.   I find his material is far better than most ...

    Philosophy... Historians of philosophy have been wont to begin their story with the Greeks.
