Episode 3 – The Forest Dark

Are you scared of the woods? What about the woods at night? In this Halloween episode, I talk about a handful of forests that have strange, spooky and haunted history. Do you have a story about something creepy, mysterious or paranormal in the woods? Let me know and I’ll read it in a future episode!)

The Big Day

Today is the day.   Time for a long coming gear shift for this blog and for me.

Announcement time!  (Two of them, actually.)

Drumroll, please?

First up – After ignoring the idea for about a year, I have decided to launch an Along A Different Path podcast.  You can find the link to Episode 1 below!   Come join me as I discuss, rant and ramble about all manner of paranormal subjects.   Each episode will be approx. 20 minutes long and will focus on a particular topic for discussion, experience to share or information to pass on.  In time, hoping to get questions and topics from the audience as well as having some special guests and interviews.

SHOW NOTES:

Episode 1 – The Dark Cave

I wanted to say that I know there are a lot of quality podcasts out there already working with this subject matter.  It means a lot to me that you chose to take some of your time to listen to this one.  Thanks!!!

Not a whole lot to add for this one as I pretty much left it all at the mic.  For this episode I wanted to give an introduction of where we were going, discuss the fears I had to fight through and give a very brief introduction to who I am and how I became involved in all of this.  As this was my first dip into podcasting I would definitely like to hear feedback so don’t be shy.

——————————————-

I’m very excited about this project, more excited then I thought I would be.  Initially, I was a nervous wreck but after numerous test runs I finally recorded the final run and the minute I was done I felt a rush of excitement.   (As of Wednesday, as I write this, the day is draaaaaaagging on. ) I have a lot of material to cover and I’m looking forward to where it takes me.   All I know is that I want to have fun with it and share my passion on the multitude of topics available.

What does that mean about this blog?  I will be posting the podcasts here, of course, and my wish is for this blog to remain just as it is, a vehicle for the combination of written word and pictures.  I’ll post podcast announcements, etc, here as well.  This blog will continue to function as is for the foreseeable future and if I get the inspiration for some fun bits and bobs that need pictures and perhaps written instead of audio commentary, I will post them here.

 

The second announcement?

It’s a subtle thing but, for me, a lot longer coming than this podcast.  If you check up at the author of this post, you’ll start seeing a different name there.  Matter of fact, if you’ve already listened to the podcast, you might have caught it. As of this posting, it will automatically change over on all of the posts of this blog as well as on the About page.  I’ll be going through the next few days and tightening everything up.

This is a very resolute decision which comes from a deep sense of wanting to walk in wholeness again.  Many, many years ago I used to do this.  I cared little what people thought or how they might react to  my interests.  Something changed along the way.   Regardless of how it occurred, it’s source was fear.  Was it wise to follow this fear? Perhaps!  I may never know.   All I know is that things needed to change back.

Many things have shifted for me in the past year that have led me to this point and this decision.    I’ll be going into more detail in an upcoming podcast where I will focus on those fears as well as discussing the very legitimate reasons some folks need to stay behind a different identity.

And that, they say, is that!

I look forward to more podcasts to come and hopefully hearing from some of you regarding the content. Thanks so much for being here on what is, for me, a pretty big day.

Happy Harvest and Happy Autumn to each and every one of you and to our friends South of the equator, Happy Spring!

 


Reconnection (Part 2 of 2)

(Continued from Part 1 – Disconnection.  Click here to read that post first.)

It had been about four weeks with the runes when the dragon came calling.

It came from an entirely unexpected angle.  I could feel things were “coming back on line” but I had no idea it would take such an unexpected turn or have such force to it.  In hindsight, perhaps someone knew that they needed to drop the equivalent of a magical bomb on me to get my attention?

I had continued with my rune work by drawing a rune every day.  Typically in the morning and as a meditation exercise.  I was very strict with myself not to read too much into the coming day.  My usual thought process was “draw the rune, reflect on the rune, watch it through the day.”  As those days went by it seemed to be working and I was really enjoying getting back to what I could consider “my roots” with them.

Disconnection (Part 1 of 2)

Over the 2017 Summer the tarot cards did not like me.

Matter of fact, no divination system seemed to like me. It started at the beginning of May and continued throughout the month.  Having been involved with oracles and that type of  communication for over 30 years it was unsettling. There had never been a time where I felt so disconnected or unable to sense the message being put forward.

It started with my daily card draws. I began to get cards like the 9 of Swords, the Tower, and the 3 of Swords day after day. At first, I was concerned about what it meant. Then, as I focused on the real time events throughout the day I realized the cards did not apply at all.

Synchronicity and the Chariot

I started this post as a bit of a ramble regarding synchronicity.  Near the end I realized it was also about what I was being told by that synchronicity.

       ~~~~~

I’ve had the following up on the About page since the beginning of this blog, “Synchronicity is the currency of the magical.

I had a series of interesting experiences occur to me this morning and I realized it was as excellent example of how synchronicity and the magical/mystical works.   Here is a brief play by play of how it all went down.

As a matter of course in my morning, I usually stop to check the news.  Now, these days, I do it very sparingly and usually much later in the morning.  Typically, no more than twice a day.  Just before I do I will go through a small ritual where I ground and, basically, brace myself.  I remind myself to stay focused and to let things unground me.    This time I did the above and then I said quietly to myself, “Lead me to what I should see.”

Tonight 11-11

A quick post before more time goes by.

In light of recent events over the past few days, this evening at 11:00 PM EST I will be sitting down in peace.   I will be taking time to focus on peace, care, illumination and healing for any and all  who may need it.   This is a turbulent, historic time and it stands to possibly get worse.  It feels as if the whole country and the world is holding it’s breath.  If nothing else, it is a little positive energy focused onto a weary world.

Please join me for whatever time you have available in whatever way suits you the best.   This morning at 11 AM I simply took a quick break and stood in a stairwell, focused on my breath and asked for the above.  It only took 5 minutes.  Tonight, I may go longer but there is no time limit.  Do what you can.

Peace.


On Being Responsible

Cloud SpiritAn interesting thing occurred to me on the way to the next post.

I had spent a handful of days writing up a very lengthy post about my last session in the glen.  I knew I wanted to share that wonderful visit but I had also decided that I would go into lengthy detail about my initial communications with the fey and spirits there.  I had the post all done, had entered the final pictures and was doing a final edit.  I typically like to write up a post, edit it a few times while taking lengthy breaks between.  Yesterday, I had wrapped everything up and would give it a final read in the evening then post it.

Then I got home.  I went to sit down and as the post came up I was hit with a massive wave of “do not post this.”   Now, I’ve had the blogging equivalent of stage fright  before and this was not it.  I wanted to post it.  However, something else was telling me “it’s no longer a good option.”

I did a bit of dowsing and the sticking point seemed to be the details I was including.  It was, basically, too much info.  This then  struck up an interesting internal discussion for me because it has made me consider what should or should not be posted publicly online.

As I meditated and delved a bit deeper into the “why” behind the push back I got a bit more information.  Now, I want to stress that I’m still digesting all of this.  This was the first time I had written that detailed of a post.  I did feel that it could make for an interesting topic for either discussion here or, perhaps, internally with a reader.

It came down to these key points…

  • The writing is not a waste as I can use it for my own records.  It may also prove to be later fodder for a book. (Thanks to a long time friend for that suggestion!)
  • The internet is a very, very big and open place.
  • I am a fan of posting information on the internet.  I have learned immense amounts online about subjects I’m interested in, from camping skills, to crafting, to organization tips.  I think it is important to add to that pool of knowledge with whatever skill set you have.  However, this interesting analogy came up in my inner vision.  There is a need to be responsible about what you post.  There is posting the instructions on how to start a fire in the woods and then there is posting information on how to make fireworks.   I thought it was a bit ridiculous but I was being told that my latest post, with it’s included details, was more along the lines of the later.  I still don’t understand it but that is what I kept getting.
  • I was under an obligation to remain responsible for what I put out there.
  • Some things, it appears, are meant to stay secret until one is ready to experience them for themselves.
  • I could post about my last visit, of course, but I would need to omit and edit with a different focus.
  • Mercury retrograde is, as always, hilarious.

And, for the record, this is not some epic lead up to “but you can buy my advanced blog post for eleventeen dollars…”  That is not what this is about.  This is about dealing with responsibility and the ethics of this level of work.  My next step is to possibly do a reading on this.  If I get more insight, I will share it.  And, also, it would appear the next post for the glen will be a little delayed.  I have a re-write to do.

I am curious to hear other’s thoughts.  Has anything similar ever happened with your writing or with your work?  Were you ever told, “No.  You cannot share that.”
