Re: the old Slavic deities?

It would certainly be interesting to hear from those who currently practice the traditions as they were passed down! The Native Polish Church does sound interesting (from a quick read of the Wiki page lol). What's the origin of "Seasons of the Slavic Soul"? Was it written by a current practitioner?...

Re: Suggestions for Shamanistic learning?

A good book on some modern brujeria practices that are still fairly Native is T.Knabb's "Dialogue of the Earth and Sky". Another good book by T. J. Knab is "A War of Witches: A Journey Into the Underworld of the Contemporary Aztecs." I'll make sure to write that one down as well. (and being seconde...

Re: Suggestions for Shamanistic learning?

That's the problem, there are too many cultural people that have fallen many generations from their roots and still feel it in their blood, yet they are orphaned and there is no one to teach them. Of course anyone who is selling themselves (or items) for profit as an Indigenous healers is what they...

Re: the old Slavic deities?

Hope I didn't sound like I was ignoring you two, Sapphireroad and Firebirdflys, I appreciate the reference and the "big names" for the gods. I had also heard that the pantheon plays a similar role as Hindu, where they're essentially sentient and individual, but also part of that larger "universal go...

Re: the old Slavic deities?

Thanks for the input everyone! And to: Hey Gregory! I've been very interested in this lately as well. I'm Russian and never really knew anything about Russian paganism, so I'm reading up on it to see if I feel any connection to specific deities. I just started reading this Russian book on the mythol...

Re: Suggestions for Shamanistic learning?

Ahhhh, I am very glad and grateful for that tip! I'll definitely make sure to remember that name and avoid it. Thanks for the suggestion, too. That sounds like a solid start, and certainly a very relevant and good place to get cracking. I'll absolutely be looking into that book "Dialogue of the Eart...

the old Slavic deities?

While I have an incredibly powerful draw for my mom's side, I also have an extremely vested interest in my dad's bloodline's old ways. For me, I've found a particular love for both Piorun and Marzanna (Polish names for them) - and chiefly the changes of Marzanna over time. Her later portrayal as a m...

Re: Suggestions for Shamanistic learning?

Awesome, thank you both! I used a very broad term, because of the fact that I'm not particularly versed in any one specific path. I ask in broad, so as to welcome a variety, rather than assume any one path is the one for me. I welcome variety in order to encourage the highest chance of discovering w...

Suggestions for Shamanistic learning?

The road to where I am now has been a very long and extended one, but it's all kind of been moved along with many universal indicators and suggestions. Last summer in particular brought me a new perspective when I got several people asking if I'd ever practiced any shamanism or thought about it. The...

Wolf dream

Knowing how weirdly creative and bizarre my mind can be, I'm not entirely certain if there's a major meaning behind this, or if it's literally just a passing dream that was kind of neat. I was at a mountain cabin (house of some sort, anyway. pretty big), and the treeline was THICK and ran all the wa...

Re: resumed pursuit

Hey back! Haha, I like that silly nickname my old friend gave me way back in high school, but I always felt it was kind of weird to use for places like this. Lionborn has a more direct connection to my last name and feels more new agey. (speaking of feeling new agey, like SpiritTalker mentioned! lol...

resumed pursuit

So as some of you may recall, I've discussed some very intriguing experiences regarding UFO's and (what I assume to be, due to what I've seen/encountered) extraterrestrials. However, my experiences have slowly decreased over time, and I still feel like there was a purpose to what happened in the man...

Re: clothing?

I did! And a while ago at this point (... May? I think?) In about a week I'll be heading out to Texas for family, and then Colorado to meet with a friend. My dad and I are trying to get the family together for a summer family vacation again, but my brother might not come. We're hoping to hit it on t...

Re: Creative Ways to Connect to the Sea?

I took a piece of my hair and put it in the water while saying I was bonding my spirit to the sea. It worked. That seems simple and easy. A thought I had (due to having very long hair, and liking to braid it), is to find an appropriate water stone (or perhaps even something like a small piece of dr...

Re: Creative Ways to Connect to the Sea?

Ahhh, that sounds great! Sorry it's taken a while to reply! I'm 15 minutes from the Southern California coast, and oddly enough, don't get to go out very often. I have to wonder what stone might be most in tune with that sort of feel? I love the idea of that spray, though! For me, I feel the same. T...
