Re: What are your thoughts on suicide?

Aetherial, you say that you don't need therapy and that you aren't depressed, but it 100% sounds like you are suffering from severe depression. Maybe it has been brought on by a hard life, but that feeling that life is naught but suffering and nothing will ever get better - that is depression. And i...

Re: Shrine for Cernunnos

Hey all, Here's a blog post with the most recent developments on the construction of the Cernunnos shrine. You can also check out some of the other posts in that blog to learn about some of the other stuff at White Mountain Druid Sanctuary, including some shrines to other Celtic deities. I think tha...

Re: Mythological beings

I'll echo the sentiment that while it's doubtful that many (if any) mythological creatures exist or have existed on the physical plane, they certain exist as astral and/or spiritual entities, and can thus be interacted with by contacting the appropriate planes (through astral projection, trancework/...

Re: Today I am Grateful For...

To-day, while I was having a panic attack, I happened upon http://www.whalesynth.com/ - which, as the name suggests, is animated virtual synthesizer made to imitate whale calls. Seriously, check it out, it's really cool. But yeah, I found it instantly entrancing and soothing, and it was really a lif...

Re: New Planets

Here 's an article on this, as one hasn't been posted here yet. I especially liked this passage: If there is life on any of the worlds, conditions likely wouldn’t be that similar to here. For one thing, the star itself would appear salmon-like in color, according to the researchers, with most of th...

Re: Spirit Spouses

Corvidus: Yeah, that's a good lead. The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz comes to mind, although I haven't read it in many years. Corbin: Yeah, I've been musing a lot on the Jungian anima through all of this. And I did have a dream which dealt with my spirit wife that also had a sequence in...

Re: Members' Pantheons

These days I work more with nature spirits and ancestors than deities, really. But I still work with Aphrodite, and Cernunnos seems to be emerging as one that I might need to work with.

Re: A spell to put on someone

Someone pointed out something to me recently that I found rather enlightening: Curses, black magic, some more controlling love magic, et cetera, that are so prevalent in traditional witchcraft, have to be viewed in the context of the time period they came from - in the sense that these were being pr...

Re: Spirits and fae; telling the difference or is there one?

Snowcat, I laughed out loud. I also chuckled at this, because it really resonated with me: Then there are orbs??!? But yeah, OP: My understanding of it is that "spirits" are a pretty big umbrella term. Ultimately everything is derived from uppercase Spirit, so the lowercase spirits are just beings t...

Re: Spirit Spouses

Ah, ok, got it. Possibly because some people would view it as infidelity. I told my wife about my experiences, as I felt that this was the right thing to do... She was annoyed - not that I had a spirit wife, but that I telling her about it. She told me to just do my thing and leave her out of anythi...

Re: Spirit Spouses

SpiritTalker: I'm looking more for information on spirit spouses in the sense of individual spirit guides that take on the role of a spouse, as opposed to the broader mystical concept of "spiritual marriage", which I think constitutes a separate phenomenon. SnowCat: What leads you to believe that it...

Re: Spirit Spouses

To be clear, I wasn't suggesting that the spirt spouse is an incubi/succubi, I was just pointing out that that was all I was getting with a google search.
