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!

Oracle Cards with Sophia Shultz on the New Normal

Posted on Updated on

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.

Coyote Skywoman on the New Normal: The Alchemist

Posted on Updated on

This week Tchipakkan and her guest Deb CoyoteSkyWoman will be discussing the best seller The Alchemist on The New Normal on www.liveparanormal.com.

If you missed the live show, it’s archived here: http://tobtr.com/s/10228735
CoyoteSkyWoman, has been a member of the New England Pagan community for the last 30 years, and she has been a practicing shaman for only a little bit longer than that. She works closely with the trickster spirit, Coyote, and has worked with The Sagefire Fellowship and A Sacred Place since their inceptions. A frequent speaker at the Changing Times-Changing Worlds conference, she has spoken on Tricksters, Channeling, Modern and Historical Paganism, and our relationship with the Devine and the Land.
Wednesday we’ll be talking about a powerful book, the Alchemist, written by Paulo Coelho and fist published in 1988. This novel is about a quest by an Andelusian Shepherd, Santiago.
Among the bits of wisdom in this allegory is the idea of your Personal Legend. Your Personal Legend “is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.” also that “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Whether you’ve read the book yet or not, the concepts are fascinating.

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 facebook event page, and we’ll try to answer it during the show.

The New Normal Podcast Wednesday 8 Eastern time

Posted on Updated on

4-19-2017 Spring open chat: call  619-639-4606, 

Please join my podcast The New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt. If you missed the show, you can listen to the archive here: http://tobtr.com/s/9970941

 

I was joined by Thor Halvorsen and we talked about Paganism and politics, and being defined by

Normal humans all have many abilities although some people try to explain them away; but people continue to dowse, see ghosts, heal by touch, and know things they “can’t” know. The New Normal is a show that talks to people who’ve developed these natural talents, and share them with the rest of us. YOU have these abilities, just as the famous psychics do. Just as some humans are athletes, and some artists and writers, just because the rest of us can’t run the four minute mile, doesn’t mean we can’t walk it, and because we aren’t Shakespeare or Pavarotti, doesn’t mean we aren’t able to read and write, or able to sing a favorite tune in the shower. Everyone has some level of ability; everyone has hunches, everyone dreams, can dowse, and heal.. As there are many sorts of art, there are many kinds of abilities people may have- there are the well-known ones: telepathy, precognition, and talking to spirits, but other abilities include finding lost things, knowing when a loved one is in trouble, knowing what the weather’s going to be- or maybe holding rain off while we pack the tent down, communicating with animals, and healing with touch or intent. Some people seem to have one ability, some have several different ones.

On The New Normal show I (Tchipakkan) invite guests, often speakers at Changing Times Changing Worlds, to share their knowledge and experience about how to develop natural abilities to use in daily life, to discuss spirituality, and give listeners a chance to interact all year long with those who have learned techniques for bringing the divine into daily life. In our children’s or grand-childrens’ generation, perhaps we’ll be able to accept and use these wonderful abilities and not have to pretend we don’t have them. If we don’t start talking about them, that can’t happen.

This week I have had a touch of “Spring Fever” and neglected to line up a guest, so I’ll be talking about whatever comes into my head, or people who call in want to talk about. Could be applying spells to politics, could be upcoming events like Earth Day and Beltaine (feel free to call in and promote your event this week), we might talk healing, divination, ghosts, or

 

Please give us a call and ask any question you like 619-639-4606, 8-9 pm Eastern Daylight time.

Listen on your computer at www.Liveparanormal.com, or if you can’t listen then, I’ll post the link to the archives after 9 pm.

Speaker Spotlight: Jane Sibley

Posted on Updated on

Jane T. Sibley, one of the founders of CTCW, also created the New England Conference on Mithraic Studies (Mithracon), happening in New Haven this weekend. Jane and Tchipakkan met in the Society for Creative Anachronism, a medieval recreation group, where Jane’s persona is that of a Norsewoman from the pre-Viking period, Arwen ferch Rhys (Tchipakkan’s is an Anglo-Saxon, also from the 7th century). That was where Jane created Auntie Arwen’s Spices, where she sells herbs and herb mixes both culinary and healing. If you can’t wait until the conference check them out on line. In the SCA she worked with Lois Fitzpatrick in the Soothsayer’s Guild, being awarded the Order of the Laurel for historical divination. Among the techniques she shared in this medievalist group were reading runes, casting seeds, and her work in utsetta (oracular seidhr).

She was taught a lot of this by her Norwegian grandmother, and, being an historian, is hesitant to claim that these techniques go back farther than can be documented, these are traditional techniques. Jane passes them along outside the family because they shouldn’t be lost, and none of the next generation has shown interest. Among these is the very intense Norseworking healing ritual, which she’s done for a few years. (If you come, be sure you know how to ground your energy!)

Jane’s degree was in folklore (her PhD in runes), and her work was with an electron microscope- as with much of CTCW, she combines mind and spirit, history and science, healing, divination, myth and humor, each informing our understanding of the others.

Her books, “Norse Mythology…According to Uncle Einar”, “The Hammer of the Smith”, “The Divine Thunderbolt: Missile of the Gods”,  and “A Different Dragon” and The Way of the Wise (Traditional Norse Folk Medicine and Magic.)

See her page here for a list of the classes she’s taught over the years.
