Starwolf talks about Bindrunes

Please join Tchipakkan and her guest Starwolf on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, July 19, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

We’ll be talking about bindrunes!

If you missed the live show, here’s the link to the archive.

 http://liveparanormal.com/

The topic of the evening is Bindrunes and Rune Magick. We’re told that the runes were given to the Norse folks by Odin (or Freya). They’re a symbol system, an alphabet, a method of divination and a method of working with energy, and Starwolf and Tchipakkan will be talking about the more metaphysical uses of the Runes.

What is a bindrune? It’s when combine two or more runes often using the same long central line. The magickal properties of both/ all runes are still there. Why and how would you do this? Listen to learn more.

New Page Werewolf handout

I just put up the handout to the Werewolf workshop I did at GNEW and will do again at Pennsic, Link here

To keep it to one double sided sheet I cut the bibliography down to my favorites. I am looking forward to writing the longer “booklet” with more fun information in it. It’s hard to leave out so much to get it down to the barely fleshed out outline!

What is mythology? on the New Normal

 

Please join Tchipakkan and her guest Thor Halvorsen on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Will be archived here: http://tobtr.com/s/10136601

We’re going to be talking about Mythology, what it is, what it’s for, and how calling something a myth changes our attitude toward it.

A joke defines a myth as “what you call other peoples religions”.

Stories are often called myths (“just a myth”) to indicate that they are not true. Yet, while not factual, myths are stories that express fundimental truths, as seen by their culture.

How do you feel when/if a person from another faith refers to your religious stories as myths, but to their own as expressions of truth (although they may not insist that they are intended to be taken literally.)

We may talk about the dichotomy between monotheism and polytheism, the colonization/power structure of religion (when Thor was on in April, we talked about that, and this show is an outgrowth of that one); we can talk gods vs religion vs mythology. What are gods, what is worship, what is immortality? What is religion vs dogma?

Want to catch this conversation, or call in to be part of it? Call 619-639-4606 (live only between 8 and 9 Wednesday).

Changing Times-Changing Worlds on the New Normal

Please join Tchipakkan on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, July 5, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.
If you miss the live show, here’s the link to the archive.http://tobtr.com/s/10122467 http://tobtr.com/s/10122467

Some years ago some friends and I decided we needed a conference for occult stuff in New England, and if no one else was going to do it, we’d do it ourselves. We wanted it to be more than just the “Spooky foo” collection of “isn’t that weird” experiences. Some of us had been doing psychic stuff and magick for 40 years or more, and wanted good instructive classes beyond the “introduction to” level. We also wanted to create / facilitate communication between different groups who do this stuff- who do energy healing, who talk to the dead, who dowse, who do divination, who know this stuff is natural and “Normal” (within certain parameters of normal). We called the conference Changing Times-Changing Worlds, because, as with the New Normal, we are hoping that in another generation we’ll have gotten to the point where the fact that people are psychic, that we can do magick, that “this stuff is real” will be accepted, and we’ll be able to mention it in public without worrying whether we’re going to be considered mad or stupid to believe in this.

The conference is going to be held in the Hudson Valley, November 3-5th this year, and if you want to learn more, listen on your computer at www.Liveparanormal.com, 8-9 edt Wednesday. (Or check out the website www.CTCW.net , or both.)

If you’d like to join the conversation, ask questions, please call in 619-639-4606 (live only).

Learning Magick from Books of Fiction

Please join Tchipakkan on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, June 28, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Link to show in archives

While we’d all love too be taught magick from witches or wizards from great volumes like the Owen’s Book of Shadows in the movie Practical Magic, or the volume in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice (minus the disaster unless it comes with the last minute save), the chances are good that you learned whatever you know either from books from Llewellyn, Weiser, or hand-copied from a friend’s hand-copied notebook. OR maybe, like many of us, you picked up techniques from the fantasy and SF books you read. It seemed like it might work, so you tried it, and maybe with a little tweaking it did work. Perhaps not as well as in movies, but many books have some good, solid technique in them. Others can teach us useful things about the supernatural world- while telling a useful story.

I’m going to run through a list of some of the books I’ve found useful over the last half century, and would love if you’d call in with some of your favorites as well. I’ll try to explain just what I like about my favorites, and where I think they shouldn’t be taken too literally.

Open a window on your computer to www.Liveparanormal.com, click the “Listen Live and Chat” listing under the “radio-listen/chat room” heading, and click “LISTEN HERE” next to “the New Normal”.

Want to share your own experiences- what books helped you develop your skills and talents? Call 619-639-4606 (live only). If you know you’re going to listen later but have a question or contribution, leave a note on the facebook events page; I’ll try to answer or mention it during the show.

Werewolves and Shapeshifters on the New Normal

Due to a scheduling mix up, I am on my own tonight, so I will be talking about the class I’ll be doing at Pennsic and GNEW. I’ll be expanding it to include post 1600 history for CTCW (and won’t have to leave those stories out tonight.) Let’s hope the tech works this time.

If you missed the live show, here’s the link to listen in the archives.

This week’s New Normal Podcast is about Werewolves on www.Liveparanormal.com,
Tchipakkan will be talking about werewolves- shape shifters and what’s real and what isn’t.
Much of what you think you know (unless you’re a shifter yourself) probably comes from movies, fiction or even role playing games. But nearly every culture in every period has some version of stories of shape shifting, and what they have in common can tell us a lot about what’s probably at the core of the stories.
The stories as they differ from place to place and time to time can also tell us about the culture that generated them, and how they see this phenomenon.
Please feel free to join the conversation by calling in at 619-639-4606

Paranormal Cleanup with Sarah Livermore

6-7-2017 Paranormal Cleanup with Sarah Livermore. moved to 6-21-17 (technical difficulties)

Miss the show? The archive is here.

Please join Tchipakkan and her guest, HPS Sarah Livermore on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, June 7, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

OK, you’ve weathered the crisis, you’ve dealt with the haunting, the poltergeist, the negative energy coming from an angry ex who doesn’t even realize that she’s sending bad stuff your way. The cord is cut, the shields are up, the annoying entity is gone. But you’re still a basket case. What do you do now?

Not that Sarah Livermore isn’t the one to deal with the initial problem, but tonight we are going to talk about what happens afterwards. We’ve all heard about PTSD, and battlefield clean up. Here’s a lady who’s been in the trenches, and stays after to help people deal with the aftermath.

A lifetime student of the occult,Eclectic Wiccan High Priestess; “I am the Pagan Exorcist. I am the witch you turn to when everyone else runs scared.”

I am the exorcist of last resort when all other methods have failed and or the Catholic Church has turned you down. I’m the witch you call when your house has been blessed by the priests of every church in town and you are still afraid to be there alone. I have worked in haunted churches, houses, and various other locations. I will work with anyone of any religion, race, or whatever. I was raised a witch in an interfaith family. I have been doing this all my life, and performed my first successful banishing at age 7. I’m a Wiccan High Priestess ordained since 2005.

Listen live on your computer to www.Liveparanormal.com, or call in with questions 619-639-4606.

Jason Nadeau Rituals for Transformation

5-31-2017 Jason Nadeau Rituals for Transformation

Please join Tchipakkan and her guest Jason Nadeau on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, May 31, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Jason is a Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master/Teacher, Shamanic Practitioner, and Certified Firewalk Instructor. He’s been on a spiritual path for over 20 years and has been a full-time Massage Therapist/Bodyworker/Spiritworker for over 12 years.

Want to catch this interview, call in with questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?

We’ll be talking about rituals for transformation – everything from the simple food and water offerings to firewalks. If you are out of your teens, you know that you aren’t as you used to be. But wouldn’t you like to direct the way you change so that you become more the person you want to be than just the result of whatever life throws at you? Some sorts of transformation are in small increments, developed as habits, as a vine climbs a trellis with the sun directing its growth, some transformations are dramatic, in response to dramatic influences- as a blade is tempered in fire and under the hammer of the smith. But always, there must be direction.

Want to call in with questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show? We’d love you to phone in with questions: 619-639-4606 (live only). If you know you’re going to listen later but have a question, look on the facebook events page and leave a question there. We’ll try to answer it during the show.

What Kind of Psychic are You- on the New Normal Wednesday

5-24-2017 What Kind of Psychic are You?
Please join Tchipakkan on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, May 24, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.
If you missed the live show, the archive is here: http://tobtr.com/s/10041441

The New Normal shows are about making the paranormal practical, about creating a world where in the next generation there will be no prejudice against the psychic, where people accept that human beings are naturally psychic. As with other talents, psychic abilities are varied, and they respond to practice and effort. That’s what we need to do. Even as some people are good at sports, others good at music, or writing or math, some people are telepathic, some clairvoyant, some people are healers, some people are dowsers, some people are empaths, some are animal communicators, some communicate with the dead,…

There are SO MANY kinds of psychic talent. Some people have one obvious talent, some several, others have put a lot of work into developing their gifts, others haven’t, since they don’t believe in them. (Others because they’re afraid of them.)
We’re going to talk about many of the different ways that people can be psychic. You many have never even considered some of these forms of being psychic. I, for example, seem to have the ability to talk to bugs. Not generally useful, or impressive. I’m sure there must be others out there.

If you want to call in with ideas or questions, please do: 619-639-4606 is the number, call between 8 and 8:45 edt. On Wednesday. To listen, go to http://www.Liveparanormal.com on your computer and click on Listen. If you listen to the recorded podcast later you can still leave a question on the fb page, and I’ll try to answer it while we record.

Blog Post for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Awareness Day

Hands holding a blue rose

Yup, Fibromialgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are pretty much the same disease. The difference is that if your pain bothers you more than your fatigue, they call it FM, if your fatigue is more debilitating than your pain, they call it CFS. In England they call it ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). It’s described as having the flu for the rest of your life.

The majority of sufferers have these symptoms to varying degrees, so think about this when your friends don’t respond to “How are you doing?” :

Fatigue, generally worsened by exertion, non-restorative sleep, weakness, nausea, pain in joints, muscles, lymph nodes, eyes, & neck, chronic sore throat, headache, digestive issues, fever and chills, heat/cold intolerance, bladder problems, immune dysfunction, allergies and sensitivities, weight gain or loss, hair loss, coordination problems, twitching, …
but wait, aside from physical symptoms that come and go without warning, they also get these mental problems:
confusion (brain fog), difficulty in concentration, memory that comes and goes, dizziness, aphasia/ dyscalculia, numbness, strange tastes and smells,
and these emotional ones:
anxiety, mood swings, and depression (yathink? Who wouldn’t if that was your day-to-day life?)
And there’s no magic treatment. Incremental improvements can be made by eating well, with supplements, reducing allergic exposure, reducing stress, mild exercise, sun or SADD lights, meditation, and the usual things that make you healthier.

And it’s true- usually they don’t “look sick”. Symptoms vary day-to-day with almost no logic, so it’s hard to plan anything. Let them let you know what they feel up to at any given moment.
