Question by Lori: What is transcendentalism? How do you know if you are a transcendentalist?
I have to show my teacher how I’m a transcendentalist or not a transcendentalist, I’m very confused as to what it really is, I know that Ralph Waldo Emerson was like the “leader” of the movement, and that its about nature, and individualism but that’s not enough information for me. Please help.

The Herb Rosemary
I am lucky enough to live in the ‘campo’ – the countryside of Spain – overlooking a small village. My villa is surrounded by uncultivated land, thickets of pine, and because we are on the foothills of the sierras, rocky outcrops.

Amongst this heady mixture can be detected the unmistakeable fragrance of rosemary.

When it comes to spiritual healing, Kundalini Reiki is considered by many people as one of most basic yet effective means of today. This is because the practice involves simple and easily understood structures that anybody can practice.
Many people,who are into spiritual healing,are into Kundalini Reiki because it is far more easier that the practice of the traditional Reiki. Since Kundalini Reiki is derived from the traditional Reiki, majority of its techniques, means of treatments, and principles are pretty much the same. Only that Kundalini uses simpler methods to achieve spiritual healing in a faster and more convenient manner.
How Kundalini works
When we say Kundalini, it usually refers to the opening of various “healing channels” and “charkas” that gives people easy access in gaining the energy of the Earth. Here, the “root chakra” serves as the center of energy that paves the way for the Kundalini energy to enter.
Also referred to as the “Kundalini fire,” Kundalini energy is said to flow all throughout the person’s body and taps the body’s “main energy channel.” Once it the energy has reached “main energy channel,” the Kundalini Reiki will now exit the “crown chakra,” and comes back in a form of cycle.
In Kundalini Reiki, the energy that has been released from a person through a channel enters the “root chakra,” passes through “crown chakra”–which is usually located on top of a person’s head–and stay there for a period of time. During its stay in the “crown chakra,” the Kundalini cleanses the “charkas” in the different parts of the body and channels it all throughout the system.
Here’s the step-by-step procedure how Kundalini works:
1. The first step in making Kundalini Reiki work is by opening the channels where Reiki energy will flow. This step is called the “first attunement.” This process also prepares the person for the second awakening of the Kundalini Reiki. Here, the person’s chakras in the hand, crown, and hand are opened and strengthened at the same time to complete the first phase. This first step is said to be the equivalent of Usui’s Reiki 1to 3 attunements which most people who practice traditional Reiki use.
2. The second step in making Kundalini Reiki work is the strengthening of channels. After the initial awakening of the Kundalini Reiki, the channels where the life force energy should be strengthened so it can accommodate the channeled energy. When the channels are strengthened, it ensures that receiving of energy in a gentle and sure manner. This process also paves that way for igniting the Kundalini energy and enables it to reach its minimum chakra.
3. The third step in making Kundalini Reiki work is strengthening the channels where the Kundalini fire will reach it maximum limit. Once this is done, the Kundalini will then perform its task of cleansing the person’s spirituality while strengthening and nurturing it.
For the Kundalini Reiki to work more effectively, the person who’s practicing it may also include extra attunements including “balance,” and the use of “diamond Reiki,” “crystalline Reiki,” “DNA Reiki,” “birth trauma Reiki,” “location Reiki,” and the “past life Reiki.”
Although Kundalini is a simple means of spiritual healing, people should be careful in using or practicing it because they can be grounded to the energy of the Earth if they don’t have enough knowledge and guidance when doing it.

Question by Epidexia93: Wiccans: Did you know that wicca isn’t interchangeable with pagan?
I always see people define things as being “wicca/pagan” but that would assume they are the same thing. They aren’t. Pagan is an umbrella term that applies to many other religions (including original christianity) and wicca is a very specific religion started by Gerald Gardner that, while having many different branches, is not the only form of paganism.
It’s just kind of annoying because my holy books tend to be miscategorized under “wicca” even though it’s not related. You do know that wicca started in the 50′s and while paganism has been around for thousands of years right?
Also don’t tell me about the “ancient witch cult” thing where you claim that wicca goes back thousands of years. That is just part of the religion’s mythology and isn’t historically accurate. Nobody considered themselves a wiccan or witch until recently.
Sorry for the misunderstanding, I mean to say that Wicca and pagan aren’t interchangeable terms in the sense that while yes, you can be wiccan and call yourself a pagan, someone who considers themselves a pagan is not automatically a wiccan.
Christianity definitely has it’s roots in paganism. Theyre own deity is very similar to Osiris and Dionysus which also came before the Jesus myth.
Answer by Rey
Yes, Wicca is NOT some ancient religion.
Its something that was made to bring back all the POWERFUL males deities and SEXUALLY LIBERATED women deities.
But, unforuntely, due to Aleister Crowley and Albert Pike, they have co-oppted it to make it into some troll in a cave, some giant on the rag goddess that likes to see men on their knees, and castrate them.
EDIT: And I think..no i’m SURE, Original Christianity was GNOSTIC….till the Catholic church killed most of them off, and said they were evil lol
