This week I’ll be talking about the Swedish Tomte, the Danish and Norse Nisse, the Icelandic Yul Lads, English Brownies, and other spirits associated with the winter Solstice holidays. They are generally small, from a few inches to a few feet tall, often with conical or knit caps in red or some other bright color, and look a bit like garden gnomes. Nisse gained popularity during the romantic era and are popular Christmas decorations- along with amanita muscara mushrooms!
These spirits seem to partake both of the ancestral spirit as well as the house or land spirit, and are protective of those whose space and family they share. There are also many tales showing that one shouldn’t disrespect or take the Nisse lightly- for instance the story of the year the farmwife buried the butter in the Christmas porridge, and when the brownie thought he’d been stiffed, he killed the cow. When he ate the porridge, he discovered his mistake and switched the dead cow with a neighbor’s live one. Generally they protected the livestock and often seen with the farm cat.

The Yul Lads (and their mother’s cat) were less benevolent (Mom and the cat were known to eat naughty children) but have been made more safe for company in the modern world. But… I’ll be talking more about these stories on Wednesday and I’d love to have you to call in with questions or stories of your own: 619-639-4606 (live only).

If you can’t make the live show 8-9- and have a question or comment, please feel free to write me a message and I’ll read it on the air.

In these stressful times, sometimes it’s hard to not get afraid about the things we can’t control. Amy has worked to figure out how to make our unwanted emotions work for rather than against us. We will be talking about how our fear based emotions guide us through our lives to teach and transform us into enlightened beings. She will discuss how to recognize these emotions and learn how to transform them into positive experiences.

Amy C Wilson is a celebrated Spiritual Medium and Psychometrist who has worked with and read for individuals and missing person cases. She has been a practitioner of the Magickal Arts and has worked in various New York City occult stores for over 25 years specializing in healing others through Candle Magick.

Amy also is the voice behind the Reluctant Spiritualist which she created to help other’s become more conscious of thought patterns that are holding them back from their fullest potential.

Call in chat about CTCW on New Normal

Please join Tchipakkan and her guests on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Miss the live show? Here’s the link to the archive.

We’ll be talking about the Changing Times-Changing Worlds Conference this past weekend.  Please let anyone who was there- as an attendee, vendor, speaker… know. We’re all busy but if you have that hour free, we’d love to hear from you!

It started Friday afternoon and ran until Sunday afternoon with both workshops and panels, rituals and a concert.  There were dozens of dealers and vendors, over 40 speakers and panelists. We celebrated Joy and our community.

CTCW brings people together from New England to Maryland, from many different communities, and we share a joy of exploring what we all know is real, even though our modern culture denies the reality of the paranormal/ supernatural/ metaphysical/ occult whatever you want to call it, we know it’s real and it works.

We love gathering where there is no need to try to justify and prove what we already know, instead our workshops go beyond introductions to these topics, but on to how-to and more advanced techniques.

Some of those who were there (still tired but exhausted) will talk about what they did there this year.

We’d love you to phone in with questions: 619-639-4606 (live only). If you can’t make the live show- please feel free to write a message and we’ll read it on the air, or ask questions (for example, yes, there are work-study options if you can’t afford to come

Rune Divination on the New Normal

Please join Tchipakkan with her guests Jane Sibley and Thor Halvorsen on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Miss the live show? Here’s a link to the archive.

This is going to be a chat about using Runes for Divination. Runes were used for writing, and for magick, but since Ralph Blum came out with his little rune divination kit, many people seem to think that this is what Runes are for. Well, they sure work, so let’s talk about it. Jane Sibley is an expert on Norse folklore and Runes, and Thor is a Rune reader and student of pagan sociology (as is Tchipakkan). This should be a fun conversation. Feel free to call in at 619-639-4606 with questions or comments.

 

Listen to the show on http://liveparanormal.com/ , live Wednesday 8-9 eastern time. If you miss the live show, we’ll share the link to the archive as soon as it’s done on fb, and the CTCW.net site, as well as https://Tchipakkan.wordpress.com Hope you can join us!

Image of a female entrepreneur walking on the street while holding a laptop with storm on the sky

Please join Tchipakkan and Catherine Kane on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, October 25, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Here’s the link to this show’s archive.

We’ve all heard the joke that “May you live in interesting times” is a curse. Catherine Kane, author of insightful books including the Practical Empath, Manifesting Something Better, and Adventures in Palmistry, has just published a new book Living in Interesting Times: Practical Energy Work When Times Get Tough. (available through lulu.com) and we’ll talk about it.

We’ve all been there, whether health problems, loss of job, family crisis, or societal upheaval; the “interesting times” that overwhelm us and make us wonder if things will ever get better and how we’ll make it through. This is what “Living in Interesting Times” is about. It’s a collection of easy and practical techniques, some energetic, some not, of finding our centers, taking care of ourselves, holding onto our joy and keeping our energy positive so we can come through those interesting times and into the light again. In “interesting times”, you need skills to survive and thrive. Living in Interesting Times is the book that shows you how.

Catherine Kane is a professional psychic, a Reiki Master, a bard, a metaphysical Christian, and  a delighted student of the Universe (amongst other things). She brings creativity, an eclectic body of knowledge, and an attitude of fun to empowering people to find and live their best and brightest dreams. Her writing has been seen in magazines such as Thorn, the Door Opener, and Helix; and she is also the author of “The Lands That Lie Between“, “Magic for Pennies“, and “The Psychic Power of Your Dreams“.   Visit her and husband Starwolf online as Foresight (the Information you need for the Adventure of Life) at http://www.ForesightYourPsychic.com and http://www.ForesightYourCtPsychic.wordpress.com

Shamanism without Borders 10-18-17 on New Normal

Please join Tchipakkan and her guest, Shamanic Practitioner Stephanie Seger, on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt. Well be talking about Shamanism without Borders.

Miss the live show? the archive is here: http://tobtr.com/s/10344969

Shamanism Without Borders is a global rapid response network of shamanic practitioners who tend to traumatic events and natural disasters.

Shamans throughout time have used special techniques and principles to tend to trauma and disasters. Shamanism Without Borders (SWB) began as a guidebook, written by the Society of Shamanic Practice, detailing a cross-cultural method for tending to these incidents. Since then the book has become a supportive tool for a global network of shamanic practitioners and community leaders who provide rapid response to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, war, pollution, and anything that causes disruption and suffering to humanity, to the animal and plant life, and the earth’s delicate bio-system.

Stephanie is a Shamanic Practitioner that currently bases her practice out of Northern Virginia. She has studied Shamanism for over 10 years and has been immersing herself in the current contemporary Shamanism course work. She graduated from a two year program from a Sandra Ingerman licensed practitioner in 2016, and is currently dual enrolled with Christina Pratt and an apprenticeship with a Shamanic Seminole Elder. Combining her traditional teachings with contemporary, she has been leading public ceremonies since 2009. She opened up her doors with her practice back in 2014, and has been leading Heart Centered Sound Circles, Ancestral Healing Circles, Shamanic Journey Groups, Land Healing Ceremonies and private one-on-one healing sessions with individuals or groups of people.

Veil Between the Worlds on the New Normal

Please join Tchipakkan on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.  Miss the live show? Archive here.

Around this time of year, you may have heard how as we approach Samhain, aka Halloween, “the Veil between the worlds becomes thinner”.  I want to talk about that ever-so-common image, and see how well it works in practice. The theory is, that it’s easier for the dead to contact the living, and vice versa during this time period. Some say that there’s a similar “ebb and flow” around Beltane (others disagree).  Morgan Daimler suggests that not believing in a veil between the worlds makes her a pagan heretic.

How literally should we take this common term? There are certainTimes of Liminality, during which making contact between worlds is more easy, but how much of that is cultural? How much is a personal perception? How much of a barrier is there between worlds? In what ways does calling it a veil serve to help us understand, and in what ways does it confuse the issue?

Importance of Ancestors with AVee Baron

Please join me snf my guest AVee Baron on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, October 4, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

If you missed the live show- it’s archived here: http://tobtr.com/s/10314023

We’ll be talking about Ancestors. Most cultures have some version of ancestor veneration, where the spirits of their beloved dead aid them in their lives. Even modern folk sometimes feel in touch with our relatives. Mediums and Spiritualists assure us that they watch over us and tweak reality to help us as they can. As with most forms of mind-to-mind (soul-to-soul) contact, frequent interaction makes it easier to communicate. Rituals, offerings, keeping an altar all help, and this time of year (approaching Samhain/Halloween) is one where many feel closest to their ancestors.

This year at the Changing Times-Changing Worlds conference, my guest AVee Baron will be running an Ancestor Ritual (as well as teaching Cartomancy).

AVee is a pagan who has practiced new age, Buddhism, Wicca and Witchcraft. She’s a Reverend in the Correllian Tradition, speaks and teache on many subjects, and owns Witchy Spellz N Wares occult online shop in Connecticut. She also has several other pages and web sites for different purposes.

Witchy Spellz N Wares, for products and spell services.: http://witchyspellzandwares.wixsite.com/viatrixsage.

Sage Willow and Horn University- Studies in in Paganism and Witchcraft   covers online or in person eclectic study courses.

A Witches Journey  is about craft and pagan information;

Babalon Shrine Scarlet Woman is a Thelemic and related page; the Shrine of the Mystical Stag Group.

The Witchy Spellz N Wares  Page lists my working services and products.

Oracle Cards with Sophia Shultz on the New Normal

Please join Tchipakkan and her guest Sophia Shultz, on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Please join Tchipakkan and her guest Sophia Shultz, on the New Normal Wednesday on www.LiveParanormal.com

Born and raised in suburban Philadelphia, Sophia Kelly Shultz has been working professionally as an artist for 29 years, at first specializing in “fantasy” portraits in which customers could order portraits as, for example, centaurs or fairies, etc.–and more recently in the spiritual and mythological paintings for which she is now widely known.

In 2013 she released the Stone Circle Oracle, and this year produced the Promethean Oracle. Each of the cards in either deck is a small version of one of her beautiful paintings, with deeply meaningful images, which will allow you access to the psychic insight that open you to hidden wisdom. The Promethean Oracle taps into the wisdom of many mythologies and cultures.

Many people assume that all “fortune telling” cards are a variation on Tarot, but there are many other ways to tap into our subconscious- or that of the Divine.

See more of her work here: https://badgersoph.deviantart.com/

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, leave a question on the fb  event page (or email me), and we’ll try to answer it during the show.

Ethnocentricism and the Power of Words

Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt., Tchipakkan and Thor Halvorsen will be talking about Ethnocentricism.  If you miss the live show, the archive will be here: http://tobtr.com/s/10284843

This isn’t going to be a discussion of supernatural or paranormal abilities or practices, but the subject comes from the issues of how cultures can program us to treat those who are different unfairly, and how we can attempt to avoid this in ourselves.

Thor Halvorsen is a student of sociology and language, and he will address how apologetic language and status differences in regards to language use shapes our perceptions, and how we see those in other religions, and how we see ourselves.

How we speak not only reflects role expectations, class, and gender bias, it also creates it. Using examples from the religious and cultural treatment of Native Americans, African Americans, the Deaf, and women, and other religious and cultural colonialism, we will look at how we use everyday speech to create a world that perhaps we didn’t intend.

We will talk about creation of modern myths, and stereotypes in media (think about the images movies portray of our culture as rich, white, and violent).

The modern metaphysical community is aware of the power of Affirmations: what you think of gains power, what you speak of becomes real. We need to become more conscious of how our words create reality. We don’t need “spells and charms”, speech, writing and the internet is powerful enough. We need to use it with more intent.
