  1. Re: X Things No One Tells You About Being Pagan . . .

    Maybe this is just me but...

    Ideas and help needed please

    So I was wondering. How does one get "closer" to their God/Goddess? I've seen a few posts on other threads saying that some kind of "sacrifice" is required - but i'm not really sure quite what this...

  6. Re: Practicing Frugalism - Tips/Suggestions?

    OK, so I noticed that most people seem to be giving tips about reducing your grocery bill, which is a good start. If you're on a budget though, that needs to apply to all areas of your life. Here's...
  7. Anyone else new to meditation or pathworking?

    I am new to both meditation and pathworking/guided visualisation and am finding it quite hard to do. Patience and perseverance aren't my strongest points. I was wondering if anyone else is in the...

    One thing I've never understood. The Jehovah's Witnesses believe that only a certain number of people can go to Heaven (It's 144,000 according to Wikkipedia), and these people must all be Jehovah's...

    Re: What drew you to your pantheon?

    Here's the exception that proves your rule :)

    I read somewhere that in the days when battles were fought in summer, with only the highest profile prisoners taken, and in winter food was scarce, Madron was a time for releasing those prisoners so...
  14. Sticky: Re: Basics of Identifying and Researching Plants

    UK-based people could try the "Collins Gem" (That's the publisher) series of books, which are handily pocket sized and good for a basic start. There's a different book for each of trees, wildflowers,...
