Re: A legit website for vessels

Unless by vessels here you're meaning dolls/fetishes currently housing a spirit? The word is a bit ambiguous, so clarity is nice. I personally wouldn't trust any seller I don't know on a personal level who sells vessels possessed of spirit.

Re: What crystal(s) have you been drawn to?

Aaah, amethyst has pretty much been my stone since I was very young. In middle school at some point, my class went panning at a quarry and I panned a lovely, semitransparent amethyst shard from the water. I've acquired a load of the gems between then and now, but I can always pick that first one out...

Re: A legit website for vessels

Seconding that. All my vessels/censers/offering saucers come from second hand stores. Unique finds, very affordable, and as good as any $40+ cauldron found online. Art crawls are also excellent places to find goods made with love and skill.

Re: Paganism/Druidry/Wicca Comparison Help

Paganism is an umbrella term which Wicca and Druidry both fall under. Wicca and Druidry are two different paths under the umbrella, along with innumerable others. Today's Wicca is often highly personalized, and practicioners of it sometimes include in their belief system practices and deities that r...

Re: How do you communicate with your Gods/Goddesses?

I don't have one method. Sometimes it's semi-formal prayer at His altar, sometimes it's casual chatter at the steering wheel. I choose to speak in tongues when the matter at hand is especially complicated, difficult, or moving. For the 'listening' half of communication...that comes to me largely thr...

Re: Hello; my name is Blackpathr...

Cousins in the sense that my beliefs are grounded to a good degree in Gnosticism, which is an alternative take on the Christian mythos that your path juxtaposes, and also has a primary focus on the 'adversary' of the Big Cheese. Sort've. In practice, the two may very well be pretty unrecognizable to...

Re: Hello; my name is Blackpathr...

Hello, and welcome from a resident theistic Luciferian. Our theologies differ substantially (I'm more of a Gnostic slant I think, and don't involve fallen angels or Lilith), but hey...close cousins, right?

Re: Alternative Element Systems

Haha, love it when topics crop back up like this...I was just contemplating elements earlier today. The elements I include are Fire, Air, Earth, Water, Metal, and Electricity. I don't include wood for the same reason I wouldn't include flesh as an element as the body of an organic life.

Re: Baphomet

Whether intentional on the part of the image's creator or not, Baphomet appears to me to be a map of the entity or idea of Lucifer. The representation makes literal many concepts wrapped up in the Morning Star, inclusive even of His 'Witchfather' aspect.

Re: Today I learned...

If anyone here has played the game Skyrim, a character named Ragnar the Red might be familiar from a commonly played song in taverns. With a name too similar for coincidence, Ragnar Redbeard was a real life author of a work titled Might is Right , which is believed to be a big inspiration to the poi...

Re: Today I learned...

On the topic of brains... Swear words are processed in a totally different area from language, and instead come from the same seat as our emotional response and memory. So essentially, dropping the F-bomb when you stub your toe is no less natural than saying 'uh' and 'um' when you're working out a s...

I wouldn't be too worried about it. You got the results you were looking for out of your working, so it's a success, right? Chances are good that the candle fizzled out because of the water! Molecules move in mysterious ways~

Though North Korea is still certainly a hot mess to say the least, it's people--or more likely, the upper class--aren't quite as utterly closed off from the outside world as I previously thought. Students can even take advantage of study abroad opportunities, and North Korean workers are contracted ...

Re: Today I learned...

The 'h' in the name for one of our most ancient ancestors, the Neanderthals, is silent in the words most correct pronunciation. As an aside, these ancient people are awfully fascinating folks...I keep rerouting to articles on the so-called cavemen lately.
