Samhain 2008 - ADF Style with a Native Twist


For the first time ever, Lance attended a ritual ... not only one, but TWO! He came with me to the Simucor rit. He also worked through the rit that I had set up for home. It was supposed to be solitary and was set up as such.

He wasn't impressed with the Simucor rit, but said he enjoyed the one I put together (in ADF style). I copied and pasted mostly, but I had to add the hanging of the flags for the Medicine Wheel from our wedding too. And I removed some parts too.

He was right - the Simucor rit wasn't very good (they brought in B. Walsh), and I also enjoyed the Solitary one we completed together.

Another Dream


Had this dream last week and it has shaken me a LOT.

 

I am in a room. There is someone with me, but I'm not sure who. Whoever it is, it is a familiar presence. The room is a light colour - yellow maybe, or cream. In the room, near the ceiling is a simple wooden shelf. It is the same colour as the room and I wouldn't have known it for a shelf if it weren't for the small shadow cast underneath it and the bird sitting on it. I think the bird is a highly important part of the dream (the day right after I dreamt it, one of the schools was teaching students about owls ... it rocked me so hard it felt as though I had been hit). I believe it to be male. At first I couldn't identify him as anything other than an Owl. He was brown mottled, had tufts of feathers on his head and was very large. (I have since done some research about owls to try to identify him and I now believe him to be a Great Horned Owl.) He looked at me - as though right through me. Then he spread his wings. I don't know if he was flying to me or at me, but it was in the direction of my face/head/shoulders.

 

That's it. Thing is that it is one of those dreams that leaves you with super duper feelings that you can't shake. The ones you shouldn't ignore. It's very similar to the feelings I had when I experienced a vision during meditation. (Was doing a guided meditation and right after one specific part of the meditation when your mind is falling into a well, my mind didn't come back out till much later).

 

Anyway, like I said - all I could do is look up the Owl and try to guess. I'm not very good with dream interpretations. The only other thing I could think of was that it may have something to do with my search for my Patron Gods/Goddesses or Animal Totem. I haven't been working on this since May or June though, so although that thought crossed my mind I don't think that's it. Any ideas?

To Animal Lovers Out There

For all you animal lovers out there this entry is for you. As our beloved pets get older, we are faced with many difficult choices. They are a part of the family. Very often, our pets become closer to us than our own human relatives. They know you, understand you, and communicate with you in such a way that your humans could never do.

Many people in my family say often that they wish we were legally allowed to euthanize humans when they get to a certain point - perhaps they have Alzeimers and have forgotten even the simplest thing such as how to eat; perhaps they have cancer (or some other form of terminal disease) and are living every day with pain. In each case, we often say to ourselves that we are kinder to animals than humans because we euthanize animals when they are in too much pain or discomfort to go on.

And yet, that being said ... many people just can't let go. It is because of this bond that we have with our animals that makes it so hard to let them go when it is time. Whether you are a horse lover or not, you should read this blog entry. This is the way we should arrange to have any beloved animal in our lives go. It is unfortunate that we can't allow our humans to go this way too.

Zeus

Zeus Training Week 1


Well, after thinking about how I'd like to present Zeus's training, I have decided to use weekly updates rather than daily. If I do daily, there will be an update about him every second day and this IS supposed to be my ADF journal after all!

Book quote

Ok, so this is a book quote thingie I borrowed from[info]athenamsb

 

* Grab the nearest book.

* Open the book to page 56.

* Find the fifth sentence.

* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions if you want to.

* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

Ok ... so mine is ...  Lavinia by Ursula Le Guin

And the 5th sentence on page 56 is ... "She killed herself."

Personal Growth and Odd Things


Ok, so I was replying to an entry about my Dream blog and realized that I really should put an entry about the things that I was writing. I have been having some odd things happen to me in the last 6 weeks. It has only been happening in that time.

Keep in mind that 6 weeks ago I gained another year and turned 25. In my opinion, that's a pretty significant number. I was also wed that week, another significant change in life.

So, since that time, here's what's been happening.

A Dream ...


I had a dream last night. It was filled with a feeling of vast importance. Even now I feel like it is the most important thing and that I must grab ahold of the dream and keep it close. It was very long too - which is odd for me because usually my dreams are quite short. It is important. I don't know how to explain other than that, but it is so much, that I want to just keep writing it over and over. Scream it out to the world - IT WAS IMPORTANT! I must REMEMBER.

My dream ... Collapse )
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway, that is my dream. I don't know how ... It is REAL. I feel it. I don't know what to do about it now though.

I have always joked with Lance (my husband) ... whenever he asks how I know things or how come I do things in preparation for something that is going to happen even though it hasn't happened yet ... I always tell him that it's because I'm psychic.

I've always joked about it - I don't know why - since I met him. Lately, as I do more and more self-awareness things, learn more about where I come from, and do things that I feel should be "me" ... I just feel more and more as though ... maybe I am? There is something there (in me) that I'm missing.

Lance and I were playing a board game this weekend where you have to roll the dice and land on specific tiles to get the 'prize'. He asked how come I land on every single tile that I aim for ... meanwhile he only hits one in five. I said I don't know ... maybe I'm psychic. Then it was like a brick wall -- it just hit me. Maybe it's true? How would I know?

Could this have something to do with my patron and my on-going search for one(s)?
