Re: Criteria for Discerning Vision from Elaborate Dream?

I don't feel like I have a hole that I need to plug, but rather that I accept a certain level of risk when it comes to dealing with spirits. They're not all benevolent! I had a bad experience a couple years ago and I'm extra cautious after that. I'm considering making some sort of dream catcher or m...

Re: When it gets too spooky

Kassandra, that is a super helpful post. I'll have to check around for Spiritualist Churches in my area. I'm in a big city, so it can't be too hard.

I've had few negative experiences. I don't think it was a discarnate human. I'm more concerned about other worldly spirits: demons and such.

Identify Strange Wing?

I just made a post about a very strange dream I had that was A) a strange dream, or B) something trying to get to me by shapeshifting into familiar figures and keeping me locked in a multilayer dream. As I finished writing that post, I ran my fingers through my hair and a wing fell out and fluttered...

Criteria for Discerning Vision from Elaborate Dream?

Hi everyone, How do you know if you had a vision or just a weird dream? How do you know if you traveled to another plane, or if your imagination just created it? Is it a feeling you have when you wake up? Is it something specific about the dream itself? In the past, I've had vivid dreams that turned...

Re: What was your first spell?

My first spell was trying to summon some other-worldly spirit to defend me from bullies. Nothing happened :(

Re: Offerings to the Fae

Just be natural about it. Instead of bowing down before them, meet them as a peer. Like bringing a gift to a friend. You don't thank your friend for hanging out with you; that sounds like you didn't expect your friend to show up. You bring your friend a gift not because you owe them, but because you...

Re: Using Dance in Witchcraft

As someone who dances for their career, I can vouch for the massive amount of energy that is created when one can let go of one's inhibitions and just dance their heart out. You don't need to be professionally trained, although feeling like you're "doing it right" often helps with dropping inhibitio...

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

Being an information junky - how about helping us get to know you better with an introduction? Similar to you, information is where it's at. That's why I started this thread. There is no wrong answer. I wanted to learn from others, to better understand things that I can't learn just from myself. Th...

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

These are some amazing responses. I think it's so amazing that everyone can have different channels of communication - and that's how it should be with your deities: personal. Built on perfect love and perfect trust.

Re: Is old school magick better?

I don't want to get anybody mad at me for pushing the point so, I'm going to try to put together a summation of the points and then not touch the topic again. This may be a chicken and egg debate that we all come at from the way we were instructed in and/or taught ourselves about the Arts. I just m...

Otherkin & Fae

First of all, I'm always surprised at how much criticism people receive on forums for identifying as Otherkin. Somehow it's understood that we don't judge others for their Gods/Goddesses, for using visualization in their magick, or for getting psychic messages from spirits...but people think it's ok...

When it gets too spooky

I've always found it easy to communicate with spirits. Often in dreams or meditation, and I'm a magnet for paranormal activity. As a child, it seemed totally natural to me. As an adult, I realized that my all-too-friendly approach could (and did) reach out to a harmful force. After that I got pretty...

Be careful of tourist traps...I was actually just reading this article before I came across your post: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/the-fox-sisters-and-the-rap-on-spiritualism-99663697/ The sisters publicly admitted to being a hoax. From their story, it sounds to me that they were cashing i...

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

I talk to them. Sometimes in my head, and sometimes out loud. Just conversation, like I would have with anyone. Snow Same. Although I'm learning a Mau language that consists of different vocalizations that consists of "meows" with emotional intent that the Egyptian lion goddesses have shown me So h...
