Welcome back to Wizard News after a long break. We have decided to make Wizard News a quarterly newsletter now. We are still only online, yet due to interest and support offered from friends and businesses, we are looking into creating a printed magazine in 2009.
We will be seeking features and advertisments to put in future issues of Wizard News, please contact us if you would be interested. In particular, stories of wizardry, magical transformation, angels, manifestation. We are also interested in people who are offering emotional and spiritual support in a social enterprise context. Please contact us if you have a story or article that may be suitable.
Despite the rain and various setbacks, we did get out and about this summer.We were planning to go to a number of festivals and had organised a firewalk at the Sunrise Celebration and at Tapeley Park. Sadly, we had to surrender to the weather and cancel the firewalk.
Somerset was hit by flash floods and Sunrise was cancelled at the last minute. There was amazing spirit, we met some wonderful people and it was great to catch up with the Rainbow Circle family.
We had an amazing time, the healing area at Glastonbury Festival is remarkable; the love and work that goes into the space is awe inspiring.
The sheer amount of people at the festival can be overwhelming and the healing field and King's Meadow, with the stone circle and the Brigid Garden are a peaceful haven amidst the chaos.
We were healing all day long, lots of people came to meet the 'Wizards in the Healing Field' The Bridget Garden was in Kings Meadow, just the other side of the hedge and we got to spend time with our White Spring family.
Healing Field Gathering
We had commited to going to the Healing Fields festival, so although it seemed that everyone was off to Sunrise at the Big Chill, we went along to help with the craft area. It was a small intimate gathering, and all the more beautiful for it, a chance to have a nice relaxing time with my family.
Tapely Park Save Our World Festival
This is a seed festival, and growing fast. We were next to the Didge tent in the 'other field'. Again we met some wonderful new people and had a fantastic time. Mark Thomas, an amazing political activist and stand up comic, came along. His talk about the arms trade and protesting was inspirational.
Conference of Angels
UK's first annual Conference of Angels was a wonderful, magical, and transformational experience; a true gathering of Angels, love, light and laughter. Join us this year for a magnificent celebration of Divine inspiration.

I have been reading the Endorphin Effect by William Bloom and rediscovering some of the teachings about endorphins that were given in my firewalking training. It is so simple that it is easy to overlook and forget how to create the positive feel good factor that we can conciously create within ourselves.
Here is a simple exercise to create positive triggers for an endorphin rich experience. Remember these exercises are powerful if regularly used and remembered, then what starts as a 'quick fix' can open the door to a much deeper experience as you continue to explore and learn.
The Circle of Power
I want you to feel the best you have ever felt. Right now, take yourself to a place and time in your imagination where you felt the best you have ever felt, in this lifetime or any other. Future or past, generate that picture in your imagination, take as long as it will to generate a strong image and feeling of that time.
Feel it in your body, really feel the feelings you felt then. Adjust your physical body so that you are sitting or standing in exactly the same way you were then. Breath, and with each breath allow the good feelings to increase. Empower the experience that you are remembering.
Hold the picture in your mind, and give it colour, bright and vibrant. See clearly what you saw when you felt the best you ever felt. Smell what you smelt then, feel all of the sensations, taste the sweetness of the whole experience and make it as real and as powerful as you possibly can.
Then DOUBLE IT! Double that great feeling, intensify the goodness of the whole scene and breathe it all in. Experience it all as deeply as you will.
Now, whilst holding the image and feeling more than the best you have ever felt, I want you to take the thumb and forefinger of one hand and place it around the other wrist.
You are creating a circle of power, a bracelet that anchors this experience into your body. Allow all your good feelings to be held in the bracelet and intend it to act as a positive trigger to access good feelings when you need to.
Now you have a powerful anchor that will trigger endorphins and good feelings. You can use it whenever you need to, simply tap or hold your bracelet and allow it to generate those good feelings. You can empower your bracelet by adding any positive memories and experiences, all the times that you feel great, remember to put it in your bracelet.
Messages from Nature
This message comes from The Faeries' Oracle
Whimsical, inspirational, and fun, THE FAERIES' ORACLE combines a delightfully enlightening book with a dazzling deck of sixty-six faery divination cards. Written by Jessica Macbeth, an accomplished "faerynaut," the engaging text explains precisely how to mine the world of faeries for insights into the heart, the soul, and the future. The book introduces the most powerful and important members of the faery kingdom, all radiantly rendered by Brian Froud on the cards.

A Collective of Pixies
What is needed here is not only an awareness of duty but a merry approach to it. This job has to be done, so one might as well do it willingly.
Progress through this dance-maze step by step--lithely and lightly. Take joy and pride in achievement.
Approach the work with zeal, zest, and zing--and perhaps even a little zaniness as well. Otherwise, you might as well not bother--well, almost.
There is something about this lighthearted approach to your duty that is important at this time in order to achieve the results you want.
Additionally, consider the words "collective" and "cooperative" as you make your plans. This situation may take more than one person, perhaps several working together to achieve the desired results. Joining forces with others is appropriate at this time. Seek the cooperation of friends, family, co-workers, and faeries, as appropriate.
I know that I deserve Love and accept it now
I give out Love and it is returned to me multiplied
I rejoice in the Love I encounter everyday
for Joy and Happiness
Life is a joy filled with delightful surprises
My life is a joy filled with love, fun and friendship all I need do is stop all criticism, forgive, relax and be open.
I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.
If any of you are interested in The White Spring renovations and seasonal events held there, please visit the website or email me to join the mailing list. The building has now been transformed into a magnificent water temple of Avalon, it is a hidden treasure in Glastonbury that I would recommend you to visit.
There will be a gathering there for Winter Solstice, and the annual Imbolc celebrations will be fantastic this year. There is no admission charge at the White Spring also there is no charge if you wish to book the space for a small gathering or event.
I hope this winter brings you joyful connections and love all through the season. If we don't see you at the Angel Conference, may you have a wonderful yuletide and bright blessings throughout 2009.
