"When you partner with a spirit ally, you become a partner in guardianship of the medicine. You become a gateway to bring that medicine into the Middle World for your people. Your shamanic power is quantified by the medicine of your allies. Those who carry Crow medicine heal somewhat differently than those who hold Badger medicine. The stronger and more balanced your spirit partnerships, the better you will be able to administer this otherworldly medicine.”

"I see a future in which the current interest in science fiction among so many Witches and neo-pagans will prove to have been a wise study of things to come, not the escapist fantasy that many detractors think it is. Witches have always tended to think in terms of the galaxy as whole, to see all time and space in the present moment, as they divine the future. Our natural interest in space and the “times beyond time” will result in Witches being among the first to understand and accept extraterrestrial visitors, for we have already contacted them in our dreams and visions. We know that the universe is so structured that anything might be true at some time and in some place, so we are free to speculate and dream. The plans and projects that we instill in our children today may became the nucleus for life in space and in other galaxies tomorrow. Out of our dreams will come the communities and ways of life that will reach beyond the planets and lead us back to the stars.
As Plato taught, as many Native Americans knew, as ancient people around the world surmised, and as Witches have always believed, we are sky people who have come from the stars. Birth is a kind of “forgetting” of all the knowledge that we held while living among the galaxies, and life is a remembering of who we are and for what we are destined. The root races, the ancestral beings, the original life force that populated our planet so many aeons ago, are waiting for us in the times to come. They will welcome us back.”
