The experiences, knowledge, services and products YOU possess are exactly what so many other people are seeking – for their own use, their own well-being and their growth – be it spiritual, emotional or physical.

Offer them genuine quality and value to their life, and they will return the favour – either as a reasonable fee or reciprocal product or service. That is just human nature! It is the `Law of return’ in just another form. Energy is given in one form and is received in another form for universal balance.

`Esoteric Enterprises Network’ – is for Holistic & Spiritual People who are developing their own home-based or startup businesses. So, if you have a business in the following areas, this is the group for you-

  • Holistic Therapies,
  • Healing arts,
  • Tarot /Astrology/ Psychic readings,
  • Writing Books & guides,
  • creating/selling Art & Crafts,
  • Event organising,
  • Community building,
  • online Promotions & Marketing,
  • and other products & services connected with Esoteric, Holistic & spiritual industries.

Aim of this group is to….

  • share personal tips, tools & techniques.
  • learn about e-Commerce & enterprises.
  • offer encouragement & moral support.
  • promote / publicise one another’s products & holistic services.
  • start joint ventures, partnerships & projects.

Come Join in and network on matters of wealth creation, publicity for launches of businesses, brands, shops, sales etc.
Remember – earning a living & creating personal financial wealth – is as much a part of life, as is spirituality and holistic well-being.

We started this facebook group on 8th January 2013 (Esoteric Enterprises was launched in October 2012)- to be a Network for either Esoteric & Holistic people..or people who provide products and services to the Esoteric, Holistic & Spiritual Communities.  It’s now time to shift the group towards more growth .. internally.. so that some of that sharing & support can take place.  If you have esoteric Business ventures…  take the time to tell the rest of us what it’s about, and where you are heading with it..and what are your hopes for it. Think of it like the `Elevator pitch’.. If you have made sales / promotional videos, slides etc.. do share them within the network / group (facebook).

And for my part, Over the coming weeks, I will also be sharing a number of business strategies, tools, techniques I have learnt and practise in my own ventures.. (all freely).

Why? Because my personal aim has always been to promote Esoteric Enterprises… so that we can all be proud and be successful in what we do.. !

 

Come join the Esoteric Enterprises Network

Best wishes.

On Earth Day 2014, an Eco-Magical appeal to magical people everywhere!

Earth Hour 2014 (29March’14)- We are a small group of Pagans & magical people stand at the heart of London, on the banks of river Thames, between St.Pauls Cathedral & Tate Modern Gallery. You might say, we stand between the world of religion and art! And that is where I finally made my heart-felt  (long-term) appeal known to all.

I make a big request to all magical practitioners, Pagans, witches, Wizards, Shamans and all-

“Please make Eco-Magic part of your rituals, Ceremonies, festivals and magical events! We have the power and the energy ..and we can change the World.. by making this conscious decision to give a tiny part of our magical practices towards Eco-Magic!”

This year (2014) as we were gathering for our annual Earth-Hour social walk and eco-ceremony by the river Thames, we actually witnessed the fact that St.Paul’s Cathedral outside lights were all switched off at 8.30pm and switched back on again at 9.30pm. This is the Earth Hour, when in every country (local time) we are encouraged to turn lights and all electrical (non-essential) equipment off..to save a bit of the energy-drain we put on the planet! And we’re glad to see a big Christina establishment like St.Pauls Cathedral following it. So there’s no excuse for any one else…is there?!

Best wishes

Stressful Pluto-square-Uranus aspect already influences you!

QuantumPhoenix:

There are 2 more of this occurences left.. Once in October’14 and one last time..early next year (2015). The following blog explains it all.. ! -Mani

Pluto-square-Uranus transits (2012 to 2015)
7 waves of transformation for the World!

We are mid-way through the 7-waves of the Pluto-square-Uranus aspect (2012 to 2015). The coming weeks will get intense, chaotic, full of shocks and few surprises.. accidents, wrangles, rebellions, and innovations.. The current aspect culminates on 2nd November.

Star signs to be severely affected will be Aquarians & Scorpios.. and as those planets are in certain signs, Aries & Capricorns will be equally affected. And of course the rest of the signs..to further degrees.. directly and indirectly as the rest field the fall-outs.. I am already seeing plenty of `evidence’ of these signs being affected.. just by keeping my eyes open.. ..

Please read..and be ready!

Calling something Wicca – then, now and tomorrow!

Calling something Wicca..

Calling something Wicca..

I came across a post by a friend that started, “Claiming that things are Native American when they are not (or claiming that things are Wiccan when they are not) is a potentially harmful practice. It erases the real practices of the group in question. If the practice is harmful, it blames that group for originating it…”

I agree on the matter of the reputation of  a particular group being ill-affected.  However there is much I disagree. Can’t speak for Native American traditions..but I can for Wicca..as I have been practising Wicca for almost 20 years…

Wicca itself is a very young path (1950′s ) and has so many other religious and spiritual practices built into it..   (Gerald Gardner travelled parts of Asia, and picked up ideas before coming back to England.. and surfacing with `Wicca’  - Many already know he instilled naturism into it, as he was a follower of that).

So in fact, much of Wicca is actually `not wicca’ .  And if within a short time of its `origins’, it can produce branches (Gardnerian, Alexandrian)…it follows that in a few more decades, Wicca will have produced ever more branches, and some of it may not even be called Wicca.

Think about all the other old religions..and how they have seeded and created sects, branches etc.  And you can see that it WILL happen to Wicca too..  if it continues to grow as a religious path.   That much of it, history assures us (comparison to other religions).

Why even go that far..!  Wiccan Covens have autonomy and are governed by its Coven High Priest & High Priestess – who can and do `add’ their own practises and wisdom to the subsequent generation of Wiccans they cultivate (prepare, initiate and tran).  So despite keeping the same copy of Book of Shadow (copying it and handing it down), potential and an avenue for slow change is already built int Wicca.

So I like to end this blog post by saying..

1) Spirituality will and does evolve.. and we should let it.. and evolve with it.. because that’s what nature does…!

2) No one owns spirituality or a religious path ..

If someone comes to us (individually) and asks for help or guidance, we can give it… That much is within our reach..  But if we observe something else going on out there, and no one has asked for our help..   we may intrude and offer our wisdom..but chances are it won’t be welcomed.. or valued.

So calling something Wicca, when it is not..  well, that;s neither here nor there..

Noise Pollution: Looking for Peace and Quiet in the Woods (and failing!)

Mani Navasothy present a brief rambling in the woods – about Pollution and state of the World!

I went looking for some peace & quiet in the woods near my home- to do some training videos…and was so perturbed by the constant noise ..even in the woods…that I started recording my frustrations in a video!

I talk about noise pollution, light pollution, Electro-magnetic pollution and more (like all those thousands of pieces of machine/rocket debris that mankind left to orbit the Earth.. !). I also wonder about the state of the Earth, why not many of us are looking into the way spirituality might evolve..

And I invite you to write thought-provoking feature articles, essays, news items, eco-campaigns,or submit visionary art, poetry and more.. to GAIAN  TIMES eco-spiritual Magazine (free online).. As you know I started it 3 years ago (and registered as not-for-profit company)..

Gaian Times is about educating the people of today..for tomorrow’s worlds!
So be part of creating and sharing that Education!

Easter thoughts On Sacrifices and Humility

Expecting sacrifices & demanding humility ( QuantumPhoenix thoughts

Expecting sacrifices & demanding humility ( QuantumPhoenix thoughts

Easter Weekend.. death and resurrection of Jesus Christ! Now seems a good time to ponder about Sacrifices…

Sacrifices that YOU EXPECT from other people..and how you treat them if they fail to fulfil your expectations of it.. !

We should all be willing to make sacrifices…but never because it’s expected!

We do so because it puts our valuable energy or possession irreversibly, without return, into a worthy cause or a person! We do so because we love and care..unconditionally!

Likewise, do you DEMAND some sort of Humility and Humbleness from other people?

Why?

Because that’s how the world is?

Or is it because that’s what’s expected of a person in a certain position? What about false humility? We can all do that ..if we really put our cunningness to it..

So how do you know, that the absence of Humility in a person (that you see) is an indication of the absence of humbleness within them?

It’s not for show..

It is..or it isn’t.

And it’s never `done’ to gain approval…as that will be just hypocrisy!

Humbleness comes from within.. and it’s connected to Gratefulness..

So just be GRATEFUL to all the good things in your life.. and let other people take care of their own humility.

Because, while you are criticising someone, someone else is watching you.. and passing judgement ..on your Humility!!

 

All the best.

Mani Navasothy.

QP thoughts: Ambitions vs Greed, and Confidence vs Ego

Ambition Confidence & -silence - QuantumPhoenix thoughts

Ambition Confidence & -silence – QuantumPhoenix thoughts

People make judgements about others..and in doing so they may be harming others..adding undue stress to them!!

For example, many people mistake other people’s ambition for a better life or success..to be Greed (financial).

Many also mistake others’ Self-Confidence to be a sign of their Ego. And worst of all, people take others’ silence as a sign of either admission of their `supposed’ guilt, or weakness!!

These are manners in which we see others..and they only indicate our own projections..

So next time you do this, be aware of what you might be `leaking’ about your self..!

And more importantly.. HAVE Ambition for your self.. TAKE pride in your achievements..and politely but firmly.. SPEAK-OUT – if you are being accused of these things yourself!!
