December Show with Rev. Crystal Blanton

Many thanks to Rev. Crystal Blanton for taking time out of her very demanding schedule to sit down with me and talk about her books, her many years of counseling, her experiences, and more. In this episode we have a great discussion about what trends seem to be occuring in the growing Pagan Community. We also talk about certain problems that seem to plague it still. All in all a wonderful lady to sit down with and have a fun and provacative conversation!

Lady Bless,

Lamyka

October Pagan Women's Episode: To Honor Who Has Gone Before

Below is the re-print of the FB event. I want to seriously THANK those who participated. This affected me so much I don't even know how to vocalize how grateful I am to all of you, participants & Honorees!

This is a break from the normal discussion based style of Pagan Women's.

It's a series of separate recordings, the voices of Pagan women. The main gist is that each of us would say someone they are honoring who has passed, and why/how this person is important. This can be family, friends, people who touched your life but whom you never met, animals, plants, etc. Remember Honoring someone means honoring a being that deserves it--regardless of form or affiliation.

Each of us would say it as if they were speaking to the person's face, and we don't give our own names so as to focus on the content of what we're sharing. I (Lamyka) will write the base sentences and give a time limit, that way there is continuity in what is being said.

For those who are Pagan podcasters or those handy with recording they can record their own and get the mp3 to me (lamyka@gmail.com). Those who aren't too handy with recording can set a time with me on skype where I can record what you say.

==============================================

Below are the base sentences that all the recordings must have, also please keep the recordings between 5-10min.

"Thank you. Thank you, <insert being's name>, you whom I Honor. I remember <insert memory of being that you would honor>.

I hope to Honor you with my words of Remembrance as you Honored me with your presence in my life. <insert blessing of your chosen path>"

**The above doesn't have to be entirely in english but if you do use multiple languages (I know I will) just make sure it's still understandable to those who only understand English. (ie: Thank you. Mahalo nui loa, <insert name>, you whom I Honor...// Mahalo nui loa means thank you very much in Hawaiian but I said it right after the english phrase 'thank you' so the listener can probably infer that)**

Lady Bless,

Weaving Ancestor Worship with Laura Patsouris

This is the first part to a two part series where I sit down and talk with the indomnible Laura Patsouris. Her book Weaving Memory: A Guide to Honoring the Ancestors is the main point from which we discuss all sorts of topics related to Ancestor Work, metaphysical protection, bloodlines, and so much more! I encourage everyone to either buy her book (I have a copy and I'm definitely recommending it!) and or stick around next week for the conclusion to this interview. Enjoy!

Lady Bless,

1. What causes you stress?

2. What can cause stress?

3. How do you deal with stress?

4. What sort of prayers do you say in times of stress?

Aloha! This is a special and very important announcement. Lamyka needs your help. In the 6 years I have been a podcaster, I have worked hard to bring the Pagan Community such things as, Lamyka’s Wiccan Podcast, the Pagan Women’s Podcast, Pagan Bed Time Stories, the Proud Pagan Podcasters (the only Pagan podcasting organization in existence), as well as authored Pagan children’s books.

While we have all been hit by hard economic times, I need your help to keep all that I’ve worked hard for alive. If you enjoy my show, love my bed time stories, or support the organizations I run, please go to lamyka.libsyn.com or paganstories.libsyn.com and donate. I have placed a PayPal donate button on both of these sites. My Goal is to raise at least $500. With this money I will be able to keep all my podcasts online as well as begin a special charity effort through the Proud Pagan Podcasters.

In appreciation of all of my supporters I will be giving a free copy of my book Pagan Bed Time Stories: How Maui Slowed the Sun to everyone who donates $5 or more. For those who donate $10 or more you will receive a free copy of my book as well as a handwritten thank you note (please insert your address into the ‘Purpose’ bar on the paypal donate page).

Mahalo Nui Loa to you all! I hope this is not an end but instead a beginning with an even brighter future. Lady Bless & Blessed Be.

Lady Bless,

Lamyka

Come join me and my friends at the dinner table. This is a special holiday recording; everyone pulled up a chair and sat down to have dinner--literally--with each other and just talk story. Joining me on friday was Eric & Issy (and their little baby girl) of Forest Moon Grove, Star Foster of Patheos.com, Melissa a member of Forest Moon Grove, Dave of PCP, Rianna Stone of the Pagan Homesteader, & Cara Schulz of PNC-Minnesota. We had a blast, and even more fun with the technical difficulties. From my dinner table to yours, have a wonderful Witch's Thanksgiving!

This was a fun recording to do! In this episode I make a few announcements like how Pagan Bed Time Stories has moved to it's own show. This whole month will focus on being Thankful as the Autumn Equinox, or as I like to call it, the Witch's Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the whole year! I included a new prayer segment that you can enjoy and adapt to yourselves. I also brought back a favorite of many listeners, the cooking segment! Lots of new things shaking up here at Lamyka's Wiccan Podcast, so don't get left behind. Go check out the newly cleaned up website, the different Facebook fan pages, & my newly released Pagan Bed Time Stories coloring book. And always remember, it's through your kind donations that help keep all the shows I host up and out there for everyone to enjoy! Even $5 helps.

Lady Bless,

Here's the Facebook Fan Page event information, though don't be fooled as I (Lamyka) & Star (of Patheos.com) went over a very interesting range of topics:

August is Lamyka's month, recording times are always EST. This month's focus will be on Pagan Schooling, set to coincide with the common beginning of the school year. We'll tackle questions regarding schooling of every type, ie. children, teens, adults, apprentices, and so on. Some of the main questions are listed below:

What does 'schooling' mean to you?

When should 'schooling' begin?

How have you structured your own learning endeavors?

How would you structure lessons for others?

Lady Bless,

Lamyka
