Harpers Faery Types

Posted in Pagan, Spiritual, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 30, 2016 by Drogo

Types of Harpers Faeries

All faeries have magic and pointed ears. It is common for a faerie to be identified as more than just one type of fae, because of mixed blood and adopted cultural changes. For example an odd tree-elf might live underground with gnomes, and call itself a fairy by which it means pixie. Monsters usually include goblins, kobolds, trolls, centaur, and other mystical creatures; but it could be argued that they are also types of fae.

Fairy – fairy (with the ai spelling) is a term to refer to both pixies and sprites, which are small winged fae.

Nymph – nymph is a general term for faeries that are spiritually or elementally connected to specific individual natural areas, plants, or phenomenon. Nymphs include water-elves, solitary tree-elves (dryads), aerial fairies (sylphs), and fire faeries (daemons). Only fire and air nymphs can have wings. Nymphs are often isolated cults of female followers of the Goddess. Male nymphs are rare, so they often find other beings to mate with.

Elf – elf is a general term to refer to regular elves, noble-elves, fairy-elves, tree-elves, earth-elves, and water-elves. Regular elves do not have wings, and are between human and gnome size.

Noble-Elves are human-sized and look the most human of all the faeries, although their ears are still pointed. They do not like to be called human-elves, or half-elves on the whole, and call themselves Noble, High, or Tallest (their biology is half-elf, half-human even after generations of trying to exclude humans). Not even a Noble-Elf with a human parent will call themselves half-elf if raised by fae, as a matter of pride.

Fairy-Elves are half-fairy, half-elf; human-sized with wings, or pixie-size with no wings (brownies, pixie-elves, elf-sprites).

Tree-Elves are the smallest elves that prefer to live inside trees, or in houses on tree branches.

Earth-Elves are the only elves that can grow beards, that is why they are usually not called elves, and are referred to as Dwarves, Gnomes, and Leprechauns. Dwarves are usually half the size of a human, and Gnomes and Leprechauns are smaller than dwarves. Leprechauns are mix of tree-elves, pixie-elves, and gnomes that prefer the colors green and gold.

Marijuana As Magic

Posted in Medical, Organic Agriculture & Horticulture with tags , , , , , , , , on July 17, 2013 by Drogo

Marijuana / Cannabis”Pot”: as a Legal Magical Medicine

Burning and inhaling, or cooking and eating Cannabis (aka Pot), is a psychoactive experience. Psychotropic drugs are still mysterious to science, as much as spiritual experiences or imagination. Spirituality or Creativity is a way of life for many of us. Another article can explain religious, or ritual magic use of cannabis, and I will try to write it and link an essay focused on that later.

Pot allows anger to rebound inside human brains, for long enough to dissipate substantially, or often simply transmute the negative to positive feelings, without even needing to vent hostility or commit aggressive acts. Pot is one of the best tools for anger management, because humans have evolved with cannabinoid receptors in our brains which allow for symbiotic harmony between us. This natural evolution with humans, is what sets it apart from other psychedelic medicines (although other natural drugs have different ways they evolved to affect our minds). Pot is enlightened magic, and here is a fictional account to explain how some of us think in creative metaphors about reality to explain what works for us to be happier people:

I have been chewing and smoking faery-mint since I was a teen-ager. I am now 40 years old writing this memoir, and I can honestly say the benefits for me are far greater than the side-effects. Peace-of-mind, connection to Nature, and broader creativity are the main short-term and (with experience) long term powers of faery-mint.

Faery-mint grew in harmony with faeries for thousands of years. So the plant affects our brains with mutual synergistic complementary symbiotic feelings. The negative effects include smoke resin, burn damage, loss of balance, loss of tension, loss of will-power; which for those suffering from excessive anger, burning desire, stress, paralyzing fear, and over-whelming self-motivated selfish will-power it is worth it.

There is a loss of short-term memory similar to the natural tendency to forget why we came into a room, or what we were talking about; however the increased joy and comfort to recall memories long-term, and short-term memory savvy when not intoxicated again win out. Experience can train its’ use, and with moderation it aids those of us with problems like anger management, insomnia from ptsd, and depression.

Some call it faery-weed, to demean its medicinal powers. Many people have addictive impulses, and they can get addicted to the higher powers of the plant; as much as with any powerful medicine. However I have never been addicted to any-substance to the point of committing crimes, hurting others, or wasting efforts to obtain it. I never purchased faery-mint at a goblin market during those 25 years until recently, as it is legal now in some faery realms. I never had to grow or purchase it, because it was popular enough that people have always just had it and shared it. Also I was not able to grow it because humans would come and rip it up, kill it, steal it, arrest me, and fine my family.”

– Harpers Faery Outlaws  (fantasy novel) 

Pot is non-lethal natural medicine.

Pot & Paranoia

Sometimes medicine reduces anxiety, and sometimes it can amplify it. Perception of which occurs is behavior based, but internal thoughts can differ from physical action. This is why philosophy or psychology can be used to guide the process of psychiatric alterations.

New-Age Testament & Neo-Pagan Scripture

by Drogo Empedocles 2013

Introduction

Multiple religious myths and spiritual magics for polytheistic Neo-Pagans

This book is a modern eclectic Pagan Bible. It is the personal beliefs of Prophet Drogo Empedocles, and his interpretation of world religions, New-Age philosophy, and Neo-Pagan magic. Polytheistic Celtic-Wiccan influence is finally proudly written here, in contrast to many Hebrew, Christian, and Muslim beliefs; because of their doctrines of cultural war against Pagans. As a handbook guide of holy Pagan scripture, this book is meant to be a shield and a sword for our faith, in the hands of the chosen guardians. This Pagan Bible includes stories about the magical town of Harpers Faery, and is a combination of historic-fiction, occult magic, and autobiography.

Eclectic-Pagan Celtic-Wiccan New-Age Bible

The word bible, is from the Greek word biblia, meaning simply books. According to religious tradition a bible is also a canon of holy scripture; an authoritative collection of rule books. The dominant rule of this Neo-Pagan Bible is the proclamation of a new covenant with ancient religions, modern Paganism, culture, and individuals in the form of universal spirituality, and acceptance of unique personal magic, and our diverse environments within the Universe. Most of the major religious rule books are now outdated guides. Please help spread the good news of the Pagan Bible!

The word pagan, from Latin paganus, means “rural country folk”. Paganism usually refers to religions or beliefs which are polytheistic or indigenous (non-Christian). Within Paganism are categories such as polytheism, shamanism, pantheism, or animism. Neo-Paganism is the revival of the ancient old ways, adapted in a new way for our modern times. There are many important reasons for this “New-Age” movement, but perhaps most of all Neo-Paganism exists because Mother Earth deserves some respect again, more than ever before!

In various religious and spiritual writings, we may find some answers; or at least stories we can relate to, and are helpful. We may also become upset or troubled by what we read. One curious pattern to notice about written history and other bibles, is how their texts ignore and degrade goddesses, women, and nature-based faiths in general. While mythical stories may be interesting, it is only through our own self-realized connection to civilization and nature that we may put ourselves in context with the true Universe. Remember we are not alone, even when we feel alone.

My name is Drogo Empedocles, and I am a faery. Well, part faery anyway. It is complicated, so I will explain my blood line later. I call myself a faery because fae magic is in my blood, and most of my friends are faeries of one kind or another. I wrote this as my Bible, and it is based on my beliefs and my home town. I encourage everyone to write their own bible. History happens to real people everyday (before it becomes history). This Bible supports polytheism, faerie equal rights, and bloody swear words; in addition to conventional biblical morality and multicultural ethics. This is my Bible.
