2:57 pm - An interesting place . . .

gothfaery13

Luna Haven

I found this place a few years ago when I was just beginning to explore other paths.   There is an absolute trove of information on the site . . . more than I could even begin to list!  The chat is marvelous!  But you have to join to be able to chat. 

I would very much suggest checking it out.

Hope everyone has had a happy Yuletide experience. Just thought I'd say 'ello since it's been so long since I've been over in this general direction.

Anyway, to get metaphysical on you, I've been contemplating past lives and regression for quite a few months now and I was wondering if anyone else here has had experiences with it. I would share mine, but I've had such disturbing revelations about my past of late that I hesitate to talk about them even here. legendary_shame is the only one I've talked to about it, and I think he was able to understand because he did something similar in a past life.

But if anyone is not so shy, or has something less dramatic on their plate, please do share it with us. Or if you know anyone who does regressions, that would be cool as well. Just thought that it was more than time to start a conversation on here about something interesting.

An aside note to 'the guys', I'd really appreciate it if we could have a meeting soon. I have things inside of me that have been all but bursting out of me for months. I'll be at the Castle on New Year's Eve, so I hope to see you all there and perhaps breakfast at Denny's after?

To everyone else: a happy new year and may you all live up to your resolutions.

Gabby

I apologize for not being here for a time.  I had life sweeping me away.  I will attempt to be here much more often now.  I wanted to greet new members of visionary_girl and chaoticfire.  And of course a long belated berryhappy (my apologies). 

Now I have a question..  Anyone except legendary_shame ever work with a familiar here?  I want to develop my kitten Callie into one..  And I have some great advice from legendary_shame to begin.  He was saying I should start with putting the cat into a relaxed state and meditating over it everyday.  Is there anything else anyone knows..  that I should be aware of?  Or any neat expierences to share doing something like this?

3:01 pm - DUH moment. *palm to forehead*

berryhappy
I have found, realized, recgonized or otherwise identified my power animals. I have found not just one but two.

Most of my childhood I had these power animals and never knew what it meant. I have just recently experienced the confirming factor a couple days ago and after discussion with a trusted friend realized that these are indeed my power animals.

First off, the Unicorn. - Sounds funny, I didn't even think much of it until recently. I have had this animal all over most of my possessions for ages. I have had a personal relationship with one on another plane of existance and this in in fact one of my power animals. I understand now what my feelings toward this animal was. Strong, peaceful and yet has healing properties. (hmmm) I was pretty excited about realizing this one.

Second, The dragon, this one representing my willpower and my strength to accomplish what is put in front of me. I believe this one is the one that has saved me from certain death on several occasions, not just in this life, but in previous lives as well. As I come to understand this new revelation I get more and more excited and happy about what I am pursuing and realizing that I have more power than I realize for many reasons.

I have become aware of events in past lives and I believe they have something to do with my perserverance and dedication in my life today. I also believe that they are large contributers to my abundance of energy and my ability to love unconditionally.

I just had to share the good news. I hope everyone is well and I look forward to reading more about you guys and you about me.

May Gaia bless you and keep you.

12:21 pm - A Blessing

legendary_shame
As the full moon rises
to its nocturnal throne...

the children of the night
awaken to weave their web
of gothic enchantments.

Through the shadows they
creep, whispering their dark
secrets on the night winds.

I suppose I'll introduce myself too, especially before you all read about my disturbing dream.

My name is Lindy. I've known Drew, Joey, & Steve for about 6 or 7 (has it really been that long *boggle*) years now.


I was raised Christian, became Christian in middle school, then basically renounced the existance of God.  The Presbyterians teach predestination.  I had a very close gay friend (Steve-Love-of-my-Life-Steve) and according to the church, he was destined for hell because of his sexuality.  In my opinion, a loving god would not create people who are destined for hell.


I am now agnostic (something is going on, I'm not sure what it is, but there is too much order in the world for it to have just been a chaotic occurrance) with an interest in metaphysics.


I have little confidence in my metaphysical abilities. I'm not really sure what my strengths are, but I know my two main weaknesses: inability to visualize (cannot picture things in my head) and a serious lack of confidence. Through working with Drew, Joey, & Steve, I've been able to do a couple of things. I've felt my third eye tingle. In an attempt to send out energy, I've accidentally made my entire body numb. I've attempted to see auras and ended up moving a door instead. Everything I do seems really hit or miss. I haven't figured out how to control anything. Most of my visual experiences happen when I'm driving. Maybe it's that whole beta-consciousness thing that happens while driving, but I've seen lights change before they actually do, I've seen (and felt) a shadow-creature in my back seat (only in the rear view mirror...when I turned around to look, it wasn't there. I've also seen a girl (who I could describe in detail at the time) sitting on a guard rail waiting for someone.


Drew, Joey, & Steve say they see gifts in me, but I'm not sure what they are.  I would love to spend more time working on these things with them.

1:13 pm - yet another odd dream

gothfaery13
I've got another one for you!
I didn't have to go to school today, so I went back to sleep and this is what I dreamed.

A bridal shower for me. Lots of friends showed up (all female...as it is with bridal showers). I pulled my mom aside after a little girl gave me a hand-made card that I ooh-ed and ahh-ed over. I told her that it wasn't happening. I wasn't going to go through with the wedding that I was in love with someone else (Shane).

I'm not really sure exactly how the party ended, but after that I ended up taking a dual role in my dream. Upstairs, I was sitting on a window-seat crying. I came upstairs to comfort myself (of course I saw the crying woman as a separate person). I talked to the cryer for a bit then showed her a green or red (I don't remember...I interpreted it as green, but I think it was red...dreaming in negative colors?)wooden box. Inside the box was dead girl, looking rather waxy. I remember great sorrow eminating from the box. We put the box away. I sat on the edge of the bed and the cryer remained on the window-seat. I told her the sad story of the girl (I don't remember any of the story now).
All of a sudden, a yellow/gold German Shepard-like dog runs in. It attacks the cryer, grabbing her by the throat. I jump off the bed and try to get the dog to go. Somehow I know that the dog is evil. Something tells me that I need to "go into the shadow realm" in order to save the cryer. So, I sit on the floor facing the window with my back against the bed, close my eyes and disappear from the scene - except for from my shins down. When I open my eyes, everything is in shades of gray. I see the "dog" attacking the crying me except it is glowing white (again dreaming in negatives?) and looks more wolflike than doglike and it feels extremely evil. I look down at my hand and see a dagger with a 6 inch blade. The "dog" sees me and approaches and jumps. I plunge the blade into its chest and it falls to the ground.
I somehow end up back in reality and the crying girl is gone. I look at the "dog" on the ground and it changes into MY CAT! As this happens, I feel the evil leaving the room. Kaiya is bleeding from the chest wound I inflicted on the dog. She bleeds to death and then I wake up.

9:25 am - I saw a previous post.....

berryhappy

I know with me being on the other side of the country (literally) I don't have the luxury of meeting with you, but I wanted to toss something out for the young lady who likes to give hugs and make people have fun...

You were asking about sheilding. I understand your frustration because I am the same way you are... literally. I give many hugs and sometimes that can be disasterous if I have a low energy force. - I am sure you have already learned other ways, but what I have found helpful is my pouch of stones.

If I know I will be dealing with people who are.... how should I put this..... energy suckers. I make sure I have my pouch of stones on me and make sure I have done a cleansing before I meet with them. - I find that when I do this it makes it easier for me to keep my energy and not give it away (even when I hug people).

I have been accused on many occasions to have too much energy and I would be more than happy to send positive energy your way if you are willing.

8:47 am - Ok. Roll Call.

anime_prince
I'm Joey....to some "Mama J", I usually am a caregiver/teacher of sorts. I've taken people in and teach them how to use their gifts in a positive and constructive manner. I started with a small group of people who now in their own ways surpass their mentor. It does me proud to see one of these people take off in a direction I previously never thought of going in; online. Odd, since I used to do psychic readings online over MIRC many moons ago.raksou you met and exceeded every challenge to your talents I've ever laid before you. This little brain child of yours is truly a work of art. legendary_shame we've journied far together and are still ever growing. singtoangels you're right it is my turn to say something and intro myself. However, I can't go without giving proper credit where credit is due. You're the one who helped "open me up" and "awaken" me. I don't think I ever fully would have if it weren't for you. All I have to say is thanx.aforsaken_angel a newly discovered talent, I really look forward to working with you extensivly. You've already proven a great asset to this LJ community. To the rest: I either don't know you, didn't know you were on here, or am still getting to know you. However, I'm sure over time I will get to know you just as well. There's my lil ol intro. Since it has been requested, here it is. *HUGS LOVE AND LIGHT TO ALL*

10:12 pm - Ok, wow.

berryhappy

Alright I got notice today that I am now officially a member. Yeay!! I am way excited about this. My name is Amber I am 28 years old, I live in Costa Mesa, California and I have been a member of LJ for only a couple of weeks. I had heard about LJ from friends, but it was ultimately a link that got me here.

After I joined I found out that my friends were on this as well. Yeay, but I also found that I could make new friends too. I searched my interests, Shamanism being one of them, and I found many communities with some relevancy to what I was looking for. I found this community and when reading some of the entries I knew this was one I wanted to be a member of.

I was talking with aforsaken_angel back and forth on journal entries and found we had quite a bit in common. I then asked how to become a member.

I have been studying shamanism for only a few months, but I have noticed that the more I read about and the more I learn (working with stones have been a major help in recovering my memories) the more I realize that I have known this information for many lifetimes. I am a healer by nature and I use my energy to help those who need it. I am finding that the more I realize myself I encounter people who need me. Lots of fun really.

I have been working with a lady shaman I have known for many years, but just recently was awakened to her skill, she has been a very helpful friend and guide, but she also instructed me to find other people who could also help me, that she could only take me so far and the rest I would need to learn elsewhere.

I have recently learned that when I dream (which is few and far between) is when I enter the SSC and am not really in a dream world but just our world with more information. (from what I have read, many of you experience this also)

I am very excited about learning more and learning with you guys and becoming much more than who and what I have today. Sorry this is a little long. I will soon figure out the link option to shorten these entries.

9:45 pm - some info to share...

aforsaken_angel
Thank you raksou for the warm and wonderful welcome.

I thought to take the time to introduce myself...

Some of you may know me, my name is Teresa and my other Journal is crimson_wolf75. I thought to create this journal to keep some from following my papar trail as there are some things I discuss with few. I offer all I have to give and would hope this to be the outlet I have been seeking. To have someone to talk to about some of the things that I experience that most think as odd, to have people I can be open with means more than I can convey. I cant say I am book taught or that I know the "terms" for the things I have experienced and done. At some points it honestly has shaken me to the core and have had no one till anime_prince that I felt I could trust not to be judgemental towards me. I have had some affinity and/or interest in the paranormal, supernaturnal, preternatural and/or metaphysical world as a whole since the age of three.

I know many of us have an interest in stones and crystals and this is a long list but I though it might prove useful. Im going to place it behind the cut so it doesnt take too much room unless you choose to look at it. Hope you all find it helpful.

I find it amazing how Animus and Anima can truley exist in one person. One being awake and the other sleeping in the unconcious. Has anyone come face to face with either at the same time?

3:04 pm - And Old Story..

raksou
Talking about a few things here has reminded me of the night I learned how to shield myself for the first time. I was with Joey at his apartment complex. We were out at the pool. Think there was a crowd of people in his apartment that night. But we were alone. He had me sitting in a lounger.. with my eyes closed. We went through the excercise and I like to think I picked it up pretty quickly. Just basics of course. I later learned on my own how to make it more fancy. Anyways.. that same night he had a tiger's eye with him. He was using the Tiger's Eye to focus his will so he could test the shield that was being put up. This is when I first learned Tiger's Eyes do not like me. Its true. He asked me to hold the Tiger's Eye and when I did. BZZZAPP!! I started getting little static shocks to my knuckles and hands. He quickly grabbed it back but the stone continued to hit me with them even though we were feet apart. Since that night.. I still cant hold Tiger's Eye without my arm going numb. It just doesn't like me. Anyone else out there run into any stones or crystals that do that or something similiar?

ETA: For the dork who accidentally posted this to her journal.

Okay, so I'll bite, too. I'm bored and have nothing better to do than wander around LJ.

I'm Gabby the Mad, also from Tampa. My hobbies include bullying people into having fun, saving the day, and other heroic stuff. I really like to dance at the Castle when I have the opportunity to do so, and randomly hug people (which sometimes gets me into trouble).

As for my metaphysical background, I was raised by a Pagan from a Southern Catholic/Baptist family. Growing up, my friends varied between Pentecostals, Jehovah's Witness, Mormons, Buddhists, and a few others for variety and crunchy texture. Lots of fun bohemian-artist types. Suffice to say I really don't care what religion someone is as long as they're open-minded.

My family are all sensitive to one degree or another, depending on how much they acknowledge it or not (and we all do usually). Healing, seeing spirits, and the future isn't anything new to my family so nothing really shocks me anymore. I'm not really trained well, but I have a few talents and a lot of knowledge of arcane things and like to teach people what I do know or what I've seen. I'm obsessed with learning anything I can, be it arcane or mundane, I love knowledge.

One day in the future, I would like to learn how to create and maintain shields since I'm usually getting backlash from something or another and I've never gotten a good grasp on the subject.

::pokes anime_prince:: I did it, now it's your turn!

should start..  Ok,  My name is Drew..  I live in Tampa Florida.  I have been delving into Metaphysics actively for over 5 yrs now.  I have a christian background from when I was young.  But, I have found theres just more to it then is preached.  I think my strengths are in foresight and empathy.  Think I want most to learn is to see Auras.  Any suggestions on that are most welcome.  I have a new kitten I want to train also...  anyone know what age to start when trying to form a connection?  Ok, thats about all.  Oh..  the kittens name is Callie cause shes a cute little calico for all interested.  hehe.
