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.

Wednesday night Tchipakkan will be talking to Amy Wilson, proprietor of Other Worldly Waxes about our emotions

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 holds Round Tables every month to discuss various life topics from a metaphysical perspective and how to transmute our energy into positive reflections into our outer reality. 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.

We’d love you to call in with questions or comments: 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.

Call in Chat on the New Normal

Posted on Updated on

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

If you can’t tune in 8-9, Live Paranormal.com archives its shows by date, and I archive them by date, guest, and topic on my website: http://tchipakkan.wordpress.com/the-new-normal/directory-of-podcasts/

Hope you can join us tomorrow night from 8-9 at the New Normal , especially if you were there this year. http://liveparanormal.com/

Divination with Runes on the New Normal Wednesday

Posted on Updated on

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 the link to the archived show.

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!

Posted on Updated on

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

The Archives for this show are here.

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 www.ForesightYourPsychic.com and www.ForesightYourCtPsychic.wordpress.com

you can also find Foresight on Facebook.

She’s also a speaker and reader at CTCW
