Welcome to the Mystical Waterfalls.

 

Here you will find a unique blending of Native American and British Celtic spiritualism. After many years of being spiritually lost I began

to discover my roots and in turn brought me to a pagan way of life. I have tried to provide here the knowledge I have gained in my spiritual search in hope to share my findings with others. Below you will find various topics within my web site. Please note the following for all who may or may not follow the same spiritual path as myself: I have put this page up to educate people and share my beliefs. Please respect me, my beliefs, and my website. Thank you. Click here to read more about my position on religious freedoms.

                                  

What I believe:

I believe that religion is a way of life not just something you attend to on week-ends, or other special days. It is intertwined into my daily life from my morning prayers to performing rituals and ceremonies with my significant other. The rituals and ceremonies I follow are my worship, my sharing my life with the Creator, and giving back what has been given to me. I celebrate the holy days of the Celtic calendar.

I believe in a Supreme Power, our Creator, which by it's very nature, is unknowable to us. I believe that the creator is aware of this 'unknowability' and is also aware that we, as humans, need to connect with the divine. I therefore believe that the creator has given humanity numerous archetypes, 'gods' and 'goddesses', throughout history in order to satisfy that need.

I believe that a true religion must provide a paradigm that enables and encourages long term spiritual growth. I am learning every day what spirituality means to myself in my everyday routines and I continue to grow in the knowledge I gain in my efforts to explore my spiritual side. I believe that each life we live is a series of lessons, and that we reincarnate many, many  times, (on different planes) learning and growing with each life.

I believe that this Supreme Power's life force, or vibration, or spirit, is in all things, all beings, animate or not. I respect all life around me and try to honor this life. I believe we are all connected to each other and nature and a balance must be reached, not only between each others as humans but between humans and nature. If we do not learn from our past mistakes, we will be the cause of are own destruction.

I believe the Rede, "An' it harm none, do what thou wilt," is a moral and ethical guideline, not dogma. I believe the Threefold Law (whatever you do returns to you threefold) is a natural law, like gravity. What goes around comes around. Basically, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Finally, I believe that all religions that provide the above are valid and good. No one religion is ”THE WAY" for all people, and none should be forced upon anyone. As I said, our creator has provided us with many choices and the freedom to choose.
