Greetings and Salutations One and All! Tonight we have an amazing show for you! Tina Fiorda and Tilde Cameron have written an amazingly comprehensive book for the current times and those who are awakening and searching for clarity!  The truly amazing thing is that this book was completely channeled through a Ouija Board!  Now most people have not such great experiences with this tool because it is rarely understood it’s ability to open vortexes and people are ill-equipped to handle the doors which are opened and thus just about anything can come through the door at that point. These two tell of a much different experience. Their experience is of love and light and amazing Truth. Their message is the message of Spirit and in this you can be assured. I have read through their book and it is the message that many are now receiving in the awakening process.

The book is called, ” A Book of Insight: Wisdom from the Other Side ” . It is set in question and answer style much like Neil Walsh’s, ” Conversations with God”. The questions they ask are poignant and well thought out and the answers are simply amazing!

These two ladies are a dynamic duo and will blow you away with their down to earth styles and straight forward thinking!

For more information on these two amazing ladies visit our website at http://www.illuminationsoflight.com and click on guest star pages or our update section which also has the link.

Do not miss out on this amazing show tonight!

In love and light,

Greetings and Salutations One and All! Tonight we are proud to present the one and only amazingly wonderful Oberon Zell Ravenheart! This man is truly a joy and you will only be blessed to listen to our show tonight at 9pm MST on blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight. This blog entry will tell you alot more about this truly gifted and inspiring individual and what he’s done and who is he is. We hope that you will join us tonight!

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart is a true modern-day Wizard, and a leading Elder in the worldwide magickal community. Oberon is a modern “Renaissance Man:” a shaman, psychologist, metaphysician, naturalist, theologian, artist, sculptor, teacher, author, animal handler, explorer, showman. He also serves as an ordained Priest of Gaea (Mother Earth).

As a child, Oberon had a natural affinity for the creatures of Nature and spent much of his time alone in the woods. His early attunement to Nature helped to sharpen his natural psychic abilities, and he has worked with many animals—both wild and domestic—over the years. He was an introspective child who loved to read—particularly natural history, mythology, science fiction and fantasy. He went on to earn college degrees in sociology, anthropology, psychology, education and theology. He has worked as a Headstart counselor, school teacher, social psychologist, school counselor, college professor, artist, journalist, author and publisher.

Inspired by Robert A. Heinlein’s 1961 visionary science-fiction novel, Stranger in a Strange Land, Oberon co-founded the Church of All Worlds on April 7, 1962, incorporating it legally on March 4, 1968. He currently serves as Priest, Primate and President. Oberon is also a Priest in the Fellowship of Isis, and an initiate in several different Traditions of Witchcraft and Paganism. He has created and participated in many interfaith projects, including the Council of Themis, the Council of Earth Religions, the Covenant of the Goddess, the Universal Federation of Pagans, Bay Area Pagan Assemblies, the Dictionary Project, the Papal Apology Project, the Pagan Summit, the Grey Council, and the Sonoma County Pagan Network.

Oberon’s work has played a major role in the unity of the magickal community and in reclaiming the spiritual heritage of pre-Christian Europe. In his award-winning magazine, Green Egg (founded in 1968 and now online), Oberon was the first to adopt the words “Pagan” and “Neo-Pagan” to describe the newly emerging Nature religions of the 1960s. In 1970, he developed and published the thealogy of “deep ecology” which has become known as “The Gaea Thesis”—the premise that all life on Earth comprises a single vast living Being, known as “Mother Earth,” or “Gaea” to the ancient Greeks.

Oberon met and fell in love with his soulmate, Morning Glory, at the Gnostic Aquarian Festival in 1973, where he was a keynote speaker. They were married April 14, 1974, in a spectacular public Pagan ceremony. From 1977 to 1985 Oberon and Morning Glory lived in a 5,600-acre intentional community in the mountains of northern Califia, creating a rural homestead and magickal retreat center under the aegis of the Holy Order of Mother Earth (HOME). In February of 1979, they created and led a ritual with a number of Pagan leaders to celebrate the solar eclipse at a full-scale restoration of Stonehenge in Washington State, a transformative event attended by over 3,000 people.

Oberon and Morning Glory founded the Ecosophical Research Association (ERA) in 1977, and their research into arcane lore and legends resulted in the “Living Unicorn” project, begun in 1980 and culminating with the leasing of several of their authentic living Unicorns to the Ringling Bros./Barnum & Bailey Circus. Oberon and Morning Glory also traveled around the United States and Canada exhibiting their Unicorns at Renaissance Faires. Continuing to delve into fables and mysteries, in 1985, Oberon organized an ERA video diving expedition to Australia and New Guinea to solve the ages-old mystery of the Mermaid. These stories and more are told in full in his encyclopedic A Wizard’s Bestiary, with Ash “LeopardDancer” DeKirk (New Page, 2007)

In 1987 Oberon led a pilgrimage and research tour of ancient oracles and archaeological sites throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. Other legendary journeys have taken Oberon to Peru, Hawaii, Alaska, Costa Rico, and back to Australia. In 1999, he visited England for the final total solar eclipse of the Millennium, which he celebrated with local Pagans at an ancient stone circle in Cornwall.

Oberon is the author of many published articles on history, Gaian thealogy, magick, shamanism, mythology, anomalies, archaeology, cosmology, and related topics. He has been interviewed and quoted extensively in many newspapers, magazines, and books on New Age religious movements, magick and the occult. His best-selling first book, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (New Page, 2004) is an essential basic reference work that will continue to serve as a resource throughout the reader’s lifetime.

In 2004, Oberon created the online Grey School of Wizardry, of which he is Headmaster. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) educational institution, the Grey School is non-sectarian, welcoming teachers and students of all faiths (and none at all). Accepting students of all ages over 11 (with some into their 70s), the Grey School offers a complete Apprenticeship program, in 16 Departments of magickal practice, at 7 levels, culminating in a Certificate of Journeyman Wizard. Around 340 classes are currently available, taught by a faculty of 30 highly-qualified teachers. Social aspects include student Houses and Lodges, Forums, clubs, merits, awards, challenges and other activities, a campus tavern, a student-run quarterly magazine, and summer camp Conclaves held in various locations. The School’s motto is: “Everything is alive; everything is interconnected.”

With many years of theatrical experience, Oberon is a popular workshop presenter and an accomplished ritualist, creating and conducting rites of passage, seasonal celebrations, Mystery initiations (such as the Eleusinia and the Nashville Panathenaia), Earth-healings, and other rituals, both large and small. With Morning Glory, he wrote Creating Circles & Ceremonies: Rituals for All Seasons & Reasons (New Page, 2006)

Oberon’s artwork has illustrated various magazines and books since the late 1960’s. His favorite art project, however, is his ongoing sculpture series of Gods, Goddesses, and mythological creatures, presented as “The Mythic Images Collection.” His masterwork is “The Millennial Gaia”—a visionary representation of Mother Earth.

Oberon and Morning Glory now reside in Sonoma County, California, where Oberon currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Sonoma County Pagan Network.

Greetings and Salutations One and All! It has been an amazing time of change and rebirth. Many people’s lives have changed, and in the immediate it looks bleak but there is a rainbow after every storm.  How we choose to see the challenges and they are many, is how we will weather that storm and the aftermath from it. It is for sure one of the most difficult challenges in life when your entire world changes in a matter of moments, or hours.  The good news is that just as quickly as it seems to all fall apart there is a solution to the issue at hand or a new door that opens, a new road, a new beginning. It is never easy changes in life, especially when they seem to come to your face back to back to back, but hold steady and take things one moment at a time when it seems that you cannot breath for all the blows you have been given.  Talk it out as much as you can with good friends who do not mind listening. Go ride your bike or get quiet with God in your own personal way and get it out of your system. Allow the emotions to ride through you like walking through a fog. Let them go and realize and accept that what you are dealing with is not a mountain, it only feels like it. See it as a speed bump, knowing that you are on the right track, because the law of opposites always comes first. Do not give up on yourself. Do not give up on God and the Universe. Do your best to say thank you for those things you do have, not focus on what is lacking or now lost. It is in the gratitude that prayers and miracles can work along with a little faith and some action that you do have control of.

I will share with all of you that this past two weeks has been a true test of endurance in faith walking. As many things as one could imagine possibly going wrong did and then some. But all the while I kept telling myself that it would all work out. I had several moments of total breakdown to release the shockwaves that had hit my heart, mind, body and soul. But as I have advised to all of you, I allowed myself to feel those feelings as a part of the response to the stimuli but once that was done, I started to focus on those things I did have in my life that were not broken or gone, those things which survived and needed to be nurtured and valued. I took action on those things which were within my control and asked for help from others un ashamed because it was truly needed in the moment and so grateful that it was there when I did ask. For all the things that went wrong, it could have been so much worse! And as the challenges presented themselves there was someone there to pick up the baton and run with it until the goal of moving me was completed. Now the job of getting me settled and working is at hand. No longer a desire but a need. I had set out on this path to begin anew, to expand myself and my horizons. I made it through when the odds were totally against me making that happen. Moments of doubt in myself in everything and everybody, but they were moments not days or months. The ebb and flow moved quickly and things continue to move with a swiftness I have not experienced since my awakening. I am not perfect, I have my moments of weakness and anger and frustration like all the rest, but I do my best now, to really seize that opportunity to change my perspective and actions around when challenges arise. I stay in the right now. What can I do about this right now? If it’s nothing then fretting will not help at all. So I may retreat and meditate, or write, or sing or walk or sit in the sun, something to change how I am looking at things. Taking a moment to come to a balance. That is not an easy thing to do when you just want to run and hide from the world wondering why you woke up this morning. Not an easy thing to do when you feel like the train has just plowed into your chest and you cannot breath over and over again.

Change always means the death of something and the rebirth of a new thing. It is never the same but if it was, we would not grow, it would be boring and stagnant if there were no adversity in the world. This is why we are grateful for even the challenges in life. Yes life changing. Yes very scary because we do not know what lies before us. We have to remember that it could be something even more wonderful then we ever imagined! It may look the same but it could be better and stronger! YOU are better and stronger having walked through that fire! Now you might be able to help guide another though that same scary moment when they come to it in their walk! You never know until you try it. You never know unless you risk walking through that door of uncertainty and discomfort. Living life requires that you take the risks. Failure is only one step closer to success. We never learn if we don’t try. For me, I worked on the show, the websites, unpacking boxes and organizing one box at a time, I had to rearrange a few things and borrow a friend’s car for awhile, I have to figure out a means of income that will sustain my son and I. When I stepped back and took things as I could, what I could do I did, what I couldn’t do I put off until I could do it with success and clarity. I am being very contemplative in the steps that I make and not doing it from a place of fear or desperation. I have done my best, not totally successful at not reacting but responding. I have remembered to be loving with myself and others and to be grateful for all that I have. To remember that no matter how dark it seems, God has never let me down. Even when things didn’t logically make sense, it will always work out for the highest good of all. I try to remember to be humble and compassionate in my walk. To do deeds in love without expectation. To give until I can give no more of myself, my belongings, my time, my knowledge… and if I do these things, then all the rest will fall into place somehow.

Stand up for what is right. Believe in yourself when no one else does. Remember that we are never alone even though the road can be lonely. Life is meant to be lived. We are meant to be happy whatever that looks like to you. I know that God has not brought me through the many things in life that I have endured to have me fail now. I have to believe that he loves me that much and that I have to love myself that much. I am thankful that I have people around me to remind me to believe in my ability to carry on no matter what. To land on my feet and make lemonade out the lemons I get handed. I do my best to find the serenity in any given moment. The beauty of the sunrise, the peace of the sunset. The simple things in life that make me cherish the life I have and give me the strength to make it through to the next challenge or task at hand and to give me the stamina to endure those moments when life is not fun or happy. I encourage all of you to hear my tales and thoughts and see if you see some of yourself or someone you know in these words and perhaps for a moment see a new perspective a different set of eyes. And that my hope is you find some comfort in knowing that it will all be OK and will work out just as it’s supposed to. Staying in the now, keeps your sanity. Leave for tomorrow what is tomorrows today has enough of its own.

Share with us if you will some of your moments of strength and challenge and how you overcame in your journey. It is good to share so that others may gain from your experience.

I thank you all for your time and consideration of these musings of mine. Be blessed and nothing less always.

Until next time. Adieu. xox Kimberly
