  2. Yes, I love cats too, I seem to have an affinity for them. If I could I would have lots of them, Hubby wont let me. One at a time please. Although, I have had overlapping cats, they don't always get along with each other. I would love to have a Maine Coon or on the other end of the scale a Sphinx cat. They are almost hairless. I don't think they would survive the Canadian winters though. This is Onyx, I think he is a Norwegian Forest cat.
  3. Oddly enough, I did not realize my mistake until I looked at the wand and the photo together. I really had meant to round the end of the wand and paint the owl in the opposite direction.
  4. So! We are still dealing with the Covid 19. It is not getting better, we are really going to have to be so very careful this Winter. I have drawn another Amabe to strengthen us through the fall and into Winter.
  5. I think that cats in general, are my spirit animal. I currently have five felines allowing me to provide food and shelter for them.
  6. Spirit of a Cougar visiting, fasinating, I wonder if it could be a totem animal for you. Or a power animal, something you need to add to your life?
  7. Over the years it's gravitated more to animal spirits, mostly cats. The spirit of a young cougar used to visit my cats. I think he was lonely for feline company and felt comfortable here.
  8. Nice! It has only happened to me once, boy! Was I suprised!
  9. I think I was in my teens before I realized that not everyone saw and talked to spirits.
  10. Well, I am at the moment cataloging all the signs, symbols and runes that I can find, including Chaos,. Not psychotic yet, I just enjoy that sort of thing. Different strokes for different folks as they say. I'm not stuck in the details, I'm just enjoying the journey.
  11. When we begin to awaken we are very excited about our sharpened senses and intuition. Each "new level" we see, hear, taste and feel all the nuances of everything, as if we have been born anew. And even though it is absolutely delightful and valid to be happy about it and to enjoy these states, it is very important to let go of the excitement sooner than later. As long as you keep being excited and pay attention to every new detail, you keep getting lost in it and your progress will stagnant until you finally get used to everything "new". This can take years and years for some. Another problem with getting lost in details, signs and symbols and meaning is that it might get you into psychotic states, where you lose track of your main goal and the "base of reality" completely. It's like being swallowed by chaos and still trying to make sense of every shape and color that's flying around you. This might cost you your potential at some point. To make sure you progress as fast as it is possible and healthy for you, you need to learn the kind of discipline, where you let go of excitement, of your attachment to signs and meaning and identification with everything "magical" and extraordinary. Make it all, every crazy synchronicity or divine-Kundalini-alien-sex sensation (😅) feel absolutely ordinary, like everyday business that you barely pay attention to. That way your capacity to hold "divinity" will increase exponentially and you will still not be attached to anything it brings up personally.

  13. I do love that poem "Invictus" beautiful, but mostly I remember the last two lines. I am the master of my fates: I am the captain of my soul.
  14. Very well stated, I think I was one of those squirrels or at least I knew some. 😉
  15. As a band of squirrels had become quite a problem, the Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will. At the Baptist church, the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a water-slide on the baptistery and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week. The Lutheran church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist church. Two weeks later the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the water-slide. The Episcopalians tried a much more unique path by setting out pans of whiskey around their church in an effort to kill the squirrels with alcohol. They sadly learned how much damage a band of drunk squirrels can do. But the Catholic church came up with a very creative strategy! They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter. Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They caught the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven't seen a squirrel since.
  16. Sometimes you're the windshield. Sometimes you're the bug. I also like, "Fekking hell!"
  17. ”My sky bends back like a bow at full draw for ages.” - Rumi Lately the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley has been powerfully speaking to me. Invictus means ”unconquered.” Those are powerful words to me. Freedom, unbowed, unconquered, wild, brave, victory. I've been meditating on the Ace of Swords the past few days.
  18. my caulderon is a small white glass ,hobnail pattern one, from Avon. It was a gift, just because I admired it. At the moment, It is holding Naustursium seeds that I am drying. One of these days....
  19. "The fire you like so much in me is the mark of someone adamantly free" - Liz Phair (Strange Loop, from Exile in Guyville, 1993)
  20. I've been known to be crabby enough to belong on the menu at a seafood restaurant. I try to stay away from people when I feel like that.
  21. I've been told that one can only be a witch after initiation by a coven. I've been told that I "outed" myself by things that I said. I've been "out" since I was 16, and I have no interest in playing by someone's fake authoritarian rules.
  22. I think I've had a bit of an ADD path. They say I can't stay focused on my path, but they just don't understand. Oh look! A chicken! Maybe a chicken is my animal guide! That accurately reflects my temperament during nursing school. I really struggled to get anything out of someone reading power point slides to the class.
  23. I agree with FancyShadowCat about the Catholic Church and it's use of magic. I was raised Catholic, and my ancestry is Irish. Back in the day, every Irish family was expected to have at least one child enter religious life. I started veering away when we studied mythology in seventh grade. What made the Greek and Roman gods fake, but the Catholic God real? From there I moved on to "what's really the difference between prayer and magic?"
