What's Your Personality Type?

Merry Meet :))))

So I came across an interesting post in my travels today.  It led to taking the Myers-Briggs personality test.  In my recollection I've never taken this and am always interested to learn more so I checked it out of course.  You can take the test here:  http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp

D Kiersey Analysis  (Healer) :))))

Portrait of the INFP - Keirsey's Healer



Healers present a calm and serene face to the world, and can seem shy, even distant around others. But inside they're anything but serene, having a capacity for personal caring rarely found in the other types. Healers care deeply about the inner life of a few special persons, or about a favorite cause in the world at large. And their great passion is to heal the conflicts that trouble individuals, or that divide groups, and thus to bring wholeness, or health, to themselves, their loved ones, and their community.
Healers have a profound sense of idealism that comes from a strong personal sense of right and wrong. They conceive of the world as an ethical, honorable place, full of wondrous possibilities and potential goods. In fact, to understand Healers, we must understand that their deep commitment to the positive and the good is almost boundless and selfless, inspiring them to make extraordinary sacrifices for someone or something they believe in. Set off from the rest of humanity by their privacy and scarcity, Healers can often feel even more isolated in the purity of their idealism.

Also, Healers might well feel a sense of separation because of their often misunderstood childhood. Healers live a fantasy-filled childhood-they are the prince or princess of fairy tales-an attitude which, sadly, is frowned upon, or even punished, by many parents. With parents who want them to get their head out of the clouds, Healers begin to believe they are bad to be so fanciful, so dreamy, and can come to see themselves as ugly ducklings. In truth, they are quite OK just as they are, only different from most others-swans reared in a family of ducks.
At work, Healers are adaptable, welcome new ideas and new information, are patient with complicated situations, but impatient with routine details. Healers are keenly aware of people and their feelings, and relate well with most others. Because of their deep-seated reserve, however, they can work quite happily alone. When making decisions, Healers follow their heart not their head, which means they can make errors of fact, but seldom of feeling. They have a natural interest in scholarly activities and demonstrate, like the other Idealists, a remarkable facility with language. They have a gift for interpreting stories, as well as for creating them, and thus often write in lyric, poetic fashion. Frequently they hear a call to go forth into the world and help others, a call they seem ready to answer, even if they must sacrifice their own comfort.

The Carl Jung indicator determines careers most suitable for your type from personality type standpoint.  My recommendations for occupation are Literature/Writer, Humanities, Web Design, Philosophy, Archaeology, Religious Education, Psychology and Counseling.  lol  Apparently I'm right where I should be.  As most of you know I design web pages, I write, am a Priestess of the Mists, and I teach an Empath class at the Mists which involves helping fellow sisters and brothers of the Mists to work with their gift. 


Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving
by Joe Butt




"I remember the first albatross I ever saw. ... At intervals, it arched forth its vast archangel wings, as if to embrace some holy ark. Wondrous flutterings and throbbings shook it. Though bodily unharmed, it uttered cries, as some king's ghost in super natural distress. Through its inexpressible, strange eyes, methought I peeped to secrets not below the heavens. As Abraham before the angels, I bowed myself..." --(Herman Melville, Moby Dick)
INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses. It's as though they live at the edge of a looking-glass world where mundane objects come to life, where flora and fauna take on near-human qualities.
INFP children often exhibit this in a 'Calvin and Hobbes' fashion, switching from reality to fantasy and back again. With few exceptions, it is the NF child who readily develops imaginary playmates (as with Anne of Green Gables's "bookcase girlfriend"--her own reflection) and whose stuffed animals come to life like the Velveteen Rabbit and the Skin Horse:
"...Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand..." (the Skin Horse)
INFPs have the ability to see good in almost anyone or anything. Even for the most unlovable the INFP is wont to have pity.
Rest you, my enemy,
Slain without fault,
Life smacks but tastelessly
Lacking your salt!
Stuck in a bog whence naught
May catapult me,
Come from the grave, long-sought,
Come and insult me!
--(Steven Vincent Benet, Elegy for an Enemy)
Their extreme depth of feeling is often hidden, even from themselves, until circumstances evoke an impassioned response:
"I say, Queequeg! Why don't you speak? It's I--Ishmael." But all remained still as before. ... Something must have happened. Apoplexy!
... And running up after me, she caught me as I was again trying to force open the door. ... "Have to burst it open," said I, and was running down the entry a little, for a good start, when the landlady caught me, again vowing I should not break down her premises; but I tore from her, and with a sudden bodily rush dashed myself full against the mark.--(Melville, Moby Dick)
Of course, not all of life is rosy, and INFPs are not exempt from the same disappointments and frustrations common to humanity. As INTPs tend to have a sense of failed competence, INFPs struggle with the issue of their own ethical perfection, e.g., perfo rmance of duty for the greater cause. An INFP friend describes the inner conflict as not good versus bad, but on a grand scale,Good vs. Evil. Luke Skywalker in Star Wars depicts this conflict in his struggle between the two sides of "The Force." Although the dark side must be reckoned with, the INFP believes that good ultimately triumphs.
Some INFPs have a gift for taking technical information and putting it into layman's terms. Brendan Kehoe's Zen and the Art of the Internet is one example of this "de-jargoning" talent in action.
Functional Analysis:
Introverted Feeling
INFPs live primarily in a rich inner world of introverted Feeling. Being inward-turning, the natural attraction is away from world and toward essence and ideal. This introversion of dominant Feeling, receiving its data from extraverted intuition, must be the source of the quixotic nature of these usually gentle beings. Feeling is caught in the approach- avoidance bind between concern both for people and for All Creatures Great and Small, and a psycho-magnetic repulsion from the same. The "object," be it homo sapiens or a mere representation of an organism, is valued only to the degree that the object contains some measure of the inner Essence or greater Good. Doing a good deed, for example, may provide intrinsic satisfaction which is only secondary to the greater good of striking a blow against Man's Inhumanity to Mankind.
Extraverted iNtuition
Extraverted intuition faces outward, greeting the world on behalf of Feeling. What the observer usually sees is creativity with implied good will. Intuition spawns this type's philosophical bent and strengthens pattern perception. It combines as auxiliary with introverted Feeling and gives rise to unusual skill in both character development and fluency with language--a sound basis for the development of literary facility. If INTPs aspire to word mechanics, INFPs would be verbal artists.
Introverted Sensing
Sensing is introverted and often invisible. This stealth function in the third position gives INFPs a natural inclination toward absent- mindedness and other-worldliness, however, Feeling's strong people awareness provides a balancing, mitigating effect. This introverted Sensing is somewhat categorical, a subdued version of SJ sensing. In the third position, however, it is easily overridden by the stronger functions.
Extraverted Thinking
The INFP may turn to inferior extraverted Thinking for help in focusing on externals and for closure. INFPs can even masquerade in their ESTJ business suit, but not without expending considerable energy. The inferior, problematic nature of Extraverted Thinking is its lack of context and proportion. Single impersonal facts may loom large or attain higher priority than more salient principles which are all but overlooked.

Crow Feather on Doorstep

Merry Meet,

I woke up this morning and was taking an easy morning. Waking up slowly.  About an hour after I woke up I took the trash outside and all but stepped on a crow feather on my porch.  The feather is a good 10 inches long and jet black.  It's absolutely perfect? Not flawed at all.  It was positioned so that it aligned perfectly with my door a couple inches out from it.  It honestly looked like someone placed it right there.

Couple things come to mind.  The first, being that feathers can be signs from angels, that the post I wrote last night, and time I spent on the picture and working with the Angel Muriel, that perhaps it was a sign to let me know that she was about.  The second, being that crows can be signs of the otherside that it was a message from my grandfather.  The crow is one of my totem animals.  I've seen a lot online about crow feathers on your doorstep being a sign of death, but I don't believe that in the one I found this morning.  It felt loving and warm when I found it.  I've crossed another step in my spiritual journey and I feel that it was a recognition of that in some respect.  I spent some time with the picture above this morning after I found the feather. :)))

I'm open to your interpretations! :))))))

Love and Blessings,

Muriel - Angel of Emotions

Merry Meet,

I have been doing some work with the angels lately and have found their presence to be comforting and uplifting. I work with a few angel tarot card decks from Doreen Virtue. When I started working with these cards it seemed to swing open the door of communication for me.

A few nights ago I was sitting on the couch by myself pondering life....and I sensed a presence with me. It felt a bit different then my guides, and it didn't feel like an entity.  The best I can think of to describe the initial sensation was light and tingling.  It was a very warm loving feeling.  I was then given the name Muriel.  I was told that I could call on her for extra emotional support.  I actually felt like I had two wings wrap about me from behind and  hold me in a protective hug.  It was quite the emotional experience for me.  I have since taken to exploring more about her and calling on her during any emotional times for extra protection and guidance.  Her presence is like an additional shield for me and I am very grateful for her presence.

I am still quite new at working with angels.  From time to time I will be given a name of whom I'm working with and I must confess I will typically jump to google within a few days to learn what I can.  I usually try to wait a few days as I'm one who loves additional validation for myself.  I will try to gather whatever details I can first, and then validate them on google.  So of course I wanted to find out all I could about Muriel.

There's really not a whole lot of information on Muriel online.  The first time I googled her name I found that she was the Angel of Emotions.  Being an empath this jumped out at me in one of those aha! moments.  Her presence has helped me to become stronger emotionally, and calmer. The best way I can think of to describe it is by the sensation of her wings around me.  It is an amazing feeling knowing that I have someone with me to help comfort me and find my way through this life.  I was told all I have to do is ask.  I am looking to heal emotions from my past, and those items that are blocking me from my gifts true potential.

Muriel's name means "God's Perfume". She is the Angel for the month of June and the sign of Cancer. Muriel is the angel who helps us get in touch with our deepest emotions.  She will help to find your "true self" and become comfortable with who you are in this life.  You are able to release any painful emotions to her so that you may heal yourself  and see the world more clearly without the bias of any pain you may be carrying from your past or past-lives.  In doing so it also allows you to open your heart to love openly.  It is said that she can help you to love unconditionally.

Muriel is an angel who is wonderful to work with for those of us who are looking to make a difference in the world around us.  It is very beneficial for those of us who are lightworkers and healers to work with her as  she helps to lead us to those in need and guides us with how to best offer healing and emotional support while keeping us strong. Muriel is known to help connect us to our destiny.

If anyone has any additional information or experiences with Muriel I would love to hear them! :))))))))

Love and Blessings,

ps. I love to play with graphics, the one here I made tonight.  Hope you like it :)))

Psychic Vampires

Psychic Vampires: Protection from Energy Predators & ParasitesMerry meet :)))

One of the topics that comes up quite frequently on the Empath board at the Mists is of Psychic Vampires and how they can drain our energy.  In an attempt to help discuss this with those taking the class I found this article on Llewellyn that I thought did a really nice job of explaining it and I wanted to share. It was written by Joe H Slate, author of Psychic Vampires a book that I intend to pick up on my Kindle today. :)

Psychic Vampires

THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN BY JOE H. SLATE PHD 



Let's face it—we've probably all fallen prey to a psychic vampire, possibly without even knowing it. It may have been a chance encounter with an energy predator that left us temporarily exhausted, or possibly along-term vampire interaction with serious wear-and-tear effects on the mind and body.

Psychic vampirism is alive and flourishing in the world today. As consumers of energy rather than blood, vampires of the psychic kind exist in many guises but with one common trait—their own inadequate energy system compels them to tap into and feed upon the energies of unsuspecting host victims. The immediate results of such a one-on-one vampire encounter are anew but temporary surge of energy for the psychic vampire and a serious loss of mental and physical energy for the unsuspecting prey. If you suddenly feel emotionally or mentally depleted, you may be under attack by a psychic vampire. The unfortunate effects of prolonged energy loss are damage to the energy system itself and in some instances, serious illness.

As consumers of energy rather than blood, psychic vampires, like their folklore counterparts, can be men orpsychicvampires women, young or old. They can be tween, teens, or adults. They can be professionals in business suits, wealthy dot. comers, dapper CEOs, ultra-groovy rock stars, or construction workers in hard hats. They can be a business associate, next door neighbor, or even family member.

Long before the popularization of folklore vampires as blood-thirsty villains who sucked life-sustaining blood from their prey, psychic vampires as energy-sucking predators were common. There's strong evidence, in fact, that vampires as consumers of energy were the trailblazers that actually inspired the legendary version of vampires as consumers of blood. An early example with clear fingerprints of psychic vampirism is the Biblical account of Delilah's cunning seduction of Samson in which she vampirized him by cutting his hair, the source of his strength. Even the Biblical version of creation in which God breathed into man the "breath (energy) of life" and then took from him a rib (of energy) to create woman illustrates the transferable nature of life-force energy. That give-and-take make-up of energy is even more dramatically illustrated in the Biblical account of the woman who, upon touching the hem of Christ's garment, was infused with energy while Christ simultaneously felt the energy leaving his body. On a very broad scale, psychic vampire themes were common in many primitive cultures that routinely used rituals to embolden and energize their warriors while simultaneously demoralizing and enfeebling (vampirizing) their enemies. Even today, military strategies often include an excessive show of force—such as shock and awe—to demoralize and dispirit (vampirize) the enemy.

Early Encounters
In my early childhood, I first became aware of psychic vampirism through a distant relative who claimed to have discovered the secret of living forever. A world traveler, she had studied under several far eastern scholars who, she claimed, taught her how to communicate mentally, travel out-of-body, and extract life-force energy from nature, including trees, streams, and even rocks. But among her most remarkable claims was the ability to mentally extinguish fire by drawing rejuvenating energy from it.

One of my most vivid childhood memories was a festive dinner party at her mansion during which she stunned her guests by demonstrating that amazing skill. Upon taking her place as hostess at the head of a very long table graced by three large candelabras, she commented on the room's excessive light. To the astonishment of everyone, she then leaned slightly forward and mentally extinguished five of the six candles in each candelabra!

Intrigued by her extraordinary claims of power and having seen many of them demonstrated, I began to suspect that she extracted energy not only from nature but from people as well. I finally collected the courage to ask her privately whether she drew energy from people. Placing a hand on my shoulder, she answered, "Well, of course. How else could I live forever?" Although I admit I was left wondering whether to believe her, I suspected that among her preferred energy sources were the well-developed young males who made up her household staff. She remained in excellent health and incredibly youthful in appearance until she finally crossed over during sleep at the age of 101.

Psychic Vampirism in the Laboratory
With these distant childhood experiences still etched in my mind, I welcomed the opportunity as Professor of Psychology at Athens State College (now University) to lead a study investigating the human energy system. The year-long study, which was funded by the US Army Missile Research and Development Command, identified several important characteristics of that system. Of particular interest was the finding that the physical body's central energizing core and its surrounding energy field, commonly called the aura, are each influenced by the presence of others. Using aura photography along with visual observations of the aura, the study found that the auras of couples whose interactions were positive tended to complement and energize each other, with each aura becoming brighter and more expansive. Conversely, negative interactions tended to constrict the aura and actually induce a state of mental and physical fatigue. When constrictions occurred in the aura, intellectual functions became slower, short-term memory declined, and physical strength decreased by as much as 50 percent.

513_vamp1_250A later study funded by the Parapsychology Foundation of New York not only confirmed the findings of our earlier research, it showed that certain persons were highly skilled at deliberately tapping into and directly feeding upon the aura of others. By draining energy from another person's aura, these so-called psychic vampires not only deplete the aura's energy resources, they interrupt the capacity of the aura's central core to generate new energy, particularly when the interaction is prolonged. Consistent with our earlier findings, direct observations of the aura as well as aura photographs taken before and after a psychic vampire interaction showed the victim's aura becoming severely de-energized and constricted following an attack while the vampire's aura became energized and expansive. I was reminded of my aunt's claim of deliberately drawing energy from others, a claim that now seemed considerably more plausible.

513_vamp2_350My more recent studies uncovered even more vivid evidence of psychic vampirism and its effects. Both visual observations and aura photographs revealed ominous tentacle-like structures extending outward from the vampire's aura during an attack to puncture and draw energy from the victim's aura. As expected, such onslaughts dramatically expanded the invading vampire's aura but seriously dulled and constricted the host victim's aura, a condition that often lasted for days. Even more seriously, vampire puncture wounds to the aura often required weeks to heal. (As an important footnote, all observations and photographs obtained throughout our studies were with consent of informed volunteer subjects, most of whom were college students. Both observational and photographic assessments obtained during an actual psychic vampire interaction were obtained from couples who were in an on-going relationship. All participants in our vampire studies were offered counseling and provided instruction concerning the use of appropriate intervention and protection techniques.)

Although the human energy system is indestructible—it is literally the soul of our being—its capacity to generate the energy required for daily living can become severely impaired. Long-term, continuous psychic vampire attacks can have devastating consequences that reach far beyond damage to the energy system. Like the host victims of their blood-sucking counterparts, victims of recurring psychic vampire assaults can become—dare I say—psychic vampires themselves in a desperate effort to replenish their lost supply of energy.

Protection Techniques
Fortunately, highly effective strategies are now available to prevent a psychic vampire attack, or once it's underway, to promptly end it. These laboratory tested strategies can also promote healing and repair damage to the energy system resulting from long-term vampire assaults. They can even be used effectively by psychic vampires provided they are motivated to overcome their energy addiction.

513_vamp3_267One of the most effective protection procedures known is the Finger Interlock Technique. Developed in our labs, this technique is easy to implement, and its effects are instant. To begin this technique, simply bring together the tips of your thumb and middle finger of each hand to form two circles. Then, bring your hands together to form interlocking circles while envisioning your body enveloped in a bright sphere of impenetrable energy. Finally, relax your hands and simply affirm, "I am now energized and fully protected." This simple, inconspicuous technique requires only seconds and can be used almost any time or place. With practice, you can use the finger interlock gesture alone as a cue to instantly activate the effects of the full procedure.

A former student who found herself under a psychic vampire attack during a job interview used the Finger Interlock Technique to instantly end the attack and gain control of the interview process. She was offered the position at a salary that far exceeded her expectations. She attributes her successful interview to the simple Finger Interlock Technique.

Aside from its effectiveness as a psychic vampire protection procedure, the Finger Interlock Technique has many other useful applications. Overcoming stage fight, improving memory, and promoting positive social interactions are all within its scope. You can use the technique to induce instant relaxation during important examinations, public presentations, and conferences, to list but a few of its many applications. A former student, now a practicing attorney, attributes his admission to law school largely to his use of the technique during the entrance exam. The technique, here ported, effectively reduced his stress level and stimulated his recall of important information. Because the technique is so inconspicuous and easily executed, it has become popular among public figures including actors, politicians, performing artists, and TV personalities. If you observe their hands, you will notice many of them using the simple finger interlock gesture.

That old and trusted stand-by, the quartz crystal, has almost unlimited potential as a psychic empowerment tool. Throughout my career as a college professor and practicing psychologist, I've found that almost everyone is responsive to this tool. Because of its receptivity to programming, the crystal is an excellent tool for such personal goals as losing weight, quitting smoking, promoting career success, and even slowing aging (See my book Rejuvenation: Living Younger, Longer and Better). My students have used this tool to raise their grade point average, gain admission to graduate school, and get the job of their choice. One of my former students successfully programmed the crystal to find the love of her life! I've used the crystal to get research grants and introduce parapsychology into the college curriculum (a first in Alabama). The phenomenal success of the International Parapsychology Research Foundation, which has funded student scholarships and psychical research, is largely due to crystal programming.

At a personal level, I've found the quartz crystal to be unsurpassed in its capacity to protect against psychic vampirism. For that purpose, I recommend the Crystal Protection Procedure because of its capacity to erect an outer protective shield around oneself that renders any vampire attack harmless.Once the crystal is appropriately programmed and then kept in close proximity to the physical body, the protective shield remains in place to provide constant protection. The procedure is particularly effective in protecting against prolonged exposure, such as when a psychic vampire may be living or working right alongside you.

For this procedure, you can use a crystal already in your possession, or you can select a fresh one from an assortment. When selecting a crystal from an assortment, first state your goal of complete protection from psychic vampirism, and then slowly pass your hand, palm side down, across the assortment. Select the crystal that seems to stand out from the others, and while holding it, note your interaction with it. If the crystal does not seem appropriate for your stated goal, repeat the process until you find a receptive crystal. Not infrequently, the crystal in an assortment that first commanded your attention is ideal for your present use.

Once you've selected a crystal, deprogram it by briefly holding it under cool running water and then letting it air dry on a towel. To install the new program, simply hold the crystal in your hand, and while gently stroking it, invite it in your own words to be your empowerment partner by working with you to neutralize and defeat psychic vampirism in whatever its form. To save the program, simply say, "Please stay."

The Finger Interlock Technique and the Crystal Protection Procedure can be used separately or together to provide constant protection from psychic vampirism. Everyone can benefit from the use of these procedures. I use them regularly and make it a practice to teach them to my students and patients because of their effectiveness in promoting a sense of security and well-being by erecting an impenetrable sphere that envelops the full aura. You can view this interesting phenomenon called the halo effect around your own aura by first holding your hand, palm side outward, at arm's length, and then while viewing your hand against a neutral background, slowly expanding your peripheral vision. Finally, let your eyes fall slightly out of focus, and you will see the aura around your hand as a colorful glow surrounded by an outer halo of bright energy. (As a footnote, this technique can be easily adapted to view the aura of another person. For that application, see my book Aura Energy for Health, Healing, and Balance.)

Many Faces and Unsuspecting Guises
As already noted, psychic vampirism comes in a variety of unsuspecting guises. We see it all to commonly between individuals as one-on-one vampirism, but feeding on the energies of another person is only one of its many forms. For instance, anyone who exploits a lover, spreads malicious rumors, ruins a reputation, or betrays a trusted friend is a psychic vampire.

On a much broader scale, psychic vampirism can occur in a vicious, collective form as sometimes seen among organizations that feed on prejudice and hate, or corporations that blatantly vampirize their employees through deception and greed. Narcotics trafficking, organized crime, and so-called "ethnic cleansing" along with discrimination based on age, race, gender, or sexual orientation are examples of collective psychic vampirism on an alarming scale. In its most widespread collective form, psychic vampirism can exist at a global level. Reckless pollution of the environment, irresponsible disregard for endangered species, and exploitation of the globe's natural resources are examples of global vampirism that affects everyone and literally puts the future of the planet at risk.

Finally, it may seem hand to fathom, but psychic vampirism can occur in a self-contained, parasitic form that turns inward to feed upon oneself. In that internal form, the person ironically becomes both vampire and victim. Examples are such flagrant consumers of our energies as phobias, obsessions, and compulsions that can hover over us like monsters waiting to devour us.

One of my patients, a 22-year-old art major, when asked to draw a picture of his fear of heights, drew a lifeless figure of himself being held in the claws of a giant monster. His drawing vividly depicted the over powering vampire nature of his fear.

In my past-life regression studies, parasitic vampirism was often found to be related to some painful, unresolved past-life experience that continues to hound us in this life. Here are a few examples drawn from college students:
  • Deep insecurity and fear of abandonment were reactions to being an outcast and homeless in a past life.
  • Fear of enclosed places resulted from having been buried alive in a past life.
  • Fears of rats, spiders, and crawling insects were associated with imprisonment in an infested dungeon in a past life.
  • Fear of heights was associated with having fallen to one's own death in a past life.
  • Compulsive overeating was associated with a past-life of extreme hunger and stealing food to survive.
  • Stage fright and fear of crowds were reactions to death by public execution in a past life.

In a remarkable example of parasitic vampirism with threads of past-life origin, a 22-year-old student's fear of sunlight, along with the compulsion to wear dark shades even when indoors, was a reaction to past-life torture in which his eyelids were cut away and he was left to die in the desert with his arms bound behind his back.

Incredible as it may at first seem, our case studies found that knowledge of the past-life sources of parasitic vampirism was often sufficient in and of itself to overcome this plight. In many cases, phobias, obsessions, and compulsions with a very long history were instantly extinguished through a sudden flash of new knowledge.

One of the great teachers of all time summed up the power of knowledge this way: "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. "Knowledge remains perhaps the most powerful force in the universe. Among our greatest challenges is finding new knowledge and applying it to empower our lives while making the world a better place for all. Who could argue with that?

The Old Gray Fox

Merry Meet :))

So I've been having some extremely vivid dreams.  My one from last night is still playing about in my mind and I feel compelled to write about it.  I was in a garden of sorts.  It was just beyond this thick forest that I have become familiar with in my dreams.  As I wandered through this garden with stone benches I came to an old English style gate.  I was told to pay attention as I had a message on the other side waiting for me.  The door was actually taller then I was.  I stood watching as it swung open.   There on the other side I saw three animals.  The first was my wolf, who I've encountered many times in my dreams.  The middle animal was a baby fox, and the third was an old gray fox.  First off, I didn't even know there were gray foxes until I googled it this morning.   I remember my concern was much for the old gray fox.  I immediately set about trying to heal him.  He was a wise one and encouraged me to instead direct my healing towards the young fox in the middle.  I was told that I had a lot of work to do with the young fox. However I was extremely reluctant to turn my attention from the old fox.  It was the first time I've seen the older fox.  Am still pondering what it all means.  I know I spent the majority of my night with the three of them.  Any thoughts?

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Litha Blessings To You All :))))

I'm getting ready to attend the Litha ritual at the Mists tonight :))) Very exciting.  I absolutely love summer and this is one of my favorite times of the year.  I only have a minute to write as I need to finish preparing but I found this rather ironic.  I have a plate set up with all the herbs I will be using in tonights ritual, thyme, rosemary, basil, marjoram, and mint.  I also needed quartz chips.  I intended to go look out in the yard with the hopes of finding some after I put my son to sleep.  So I was having snuggle time with my son before I got him to sleep.  I got up to kiss him goodnight and it sounded like a bunch of beads falling all over the floor.  I looked down to find my rose quartz bracelet had broken and the quartz chips were on the floor.  Five of them to be exact. :) So while I'm bummed that my bracelet broke, I thought the timing on that was a bit ironic. ;)

Have a Blessed Litha Everyone :)))))

Rain......

Merry Meet,

There's something just soooo calming and relaxing about rain.  I am actually thankful when I wake up to it.  I've been sitting here for the last hour slowly waking up with my morning coffee.  I've got the sliding door open so that I can listen to an watch the rain coming down.  The smell of rain is just amazing to me.  I can usually smell rain way before it happens.

Don't get me wrong, sunny days are great too. :) Sunny days are my active, "let's go do this!" days. I think that's part of the reason that I love rainy days as well.  They are days where the world slows down a bit for me.  I can read a book by the window while I listen to the rain come down.  I have a towel in front of my sliding door on the floor specifically so I can feel as if I'm almost sitting outside.  I need to get a screen house for my deck. :)

So my question for all of you is this.  Does the rain seem to ground any of you? Just waking up to the rain can make me feel instantly grounded.  I can step outside for a moment and become grounded.  The rain seems to just wash away any anxiety stress or worries that I may be carrying and alow me to start again.

Love and Blessings to you all :))

Positive Affirmations VS Subliminal Downloads

Positive affirmations have long been utilised as a primary instrument for self help, but now they're receiving competition from a new type of personal development - subliminal messaging.

Subliminal messages are rapidly gaining popularity thanks to it's partially effortless nature. On a fundamental level all subliminal audio messages are, are affirmations recorded on an audio file, and moved to a higher sound frequency, i.e. made subliminal. Consequently you will not audibly hear any voices whatsoever, however the statements will still enter your unconscious mind directly, and when these statements start to build up (just like affirmations would) they will begin to change your belief systems and habits on a deeper level.

The Benefits of Subliminal MP3s

This quite simply means that rather than standing in front of the mirror for ten minutes each day and then once more at night saying your positive affirmations you can use subliminal mp3s instead. The results will be the same, only with the increased benefit that you can listen to album in the background and let the affirmations to naturally flow directly into your unconscious mind as you do other activities - perhaps while watching tv, working, studying, as well as training.

This is not to say that using subliminal messages will be entirely effortless on their own - you still need to take some proactive conscious action towards your goals, however they will , enhance your determination and strength of mind, as well as generally making you more likely to succeed. This kind of transformation isn't immediate, but normally occurs inside of several days to a few weeks. You will observe subtle improvements in your thoughts to begin with that will develop until finally you notice a genuine change in your self beliefs and ways of thinking.

Simillar to positive affirmations they can be advantageous and assist you in a variety of areas - from helping you to become more self assured and outgoing to making you focused and driven.

So if you have applied positive affirmations previously and achieved results, or maybe if you have tried using them but simply don't have enough time every day to stick to them and repeat them consistantly, then subliminal messages should be a good option to try.

All Around the Garden

Merry Meet :)

We had some wicked storms last night.  They started rather early in the night around 8:00.  The winds were pretty heavy and the lightning was heat lightning unlike any I've seen in my past. It just ripped sideways across the sky completely branching out in so many different directions. I've never seen it that close before.  Given last weeks tornado that hit right near my house I was understandably a bit edgy.  The weather channel said the storms would be done around 11:00.  I fell asleep at a bit after 10 as I was just exhausted last night. About 1:00 in the morning I felt like I was ripped from the dream I was in and woken up.  I could hear the wind ripping around the house. And I said out loud three times, It's Not Safe.  I actually said it with an accent which is another thing to ponder at some point.  Not the first time that has happened.  In any event I was urged to get out of bed and quickly.

I could barely see but I threw on a robe an went down the hall.  Outside it looked like some sorta  light show with torrential rains beating against the window, lightning lighting up the sky almost every second and the trees just bending with the weight of the wind.  It really looked like someone was just spraying a hose against my window the rain was that heavy.  My instincts told me to go in an get my son.  I had all I could do to push open his door.  I had to put my full weight against it.  When I finally got it open I felt like I was in some sorta movie.  My son's bed is under his window.  Apparently at some point last night he decided to open it his window all the way.  The wind was just cranking into his room.  The blinds were blown pretty much straight out flapping in the wind over his head an my son was sitting in the center of it rubbing his eyes trying to move. I have never felt wind that strong.  So I can't even begin to imagine what those who went through the tornado last Wednesday felt.

I got my son and closed up his room.  I kept him on my lap until I felt the storm had calmed enough where it was safe to put him back to bed.  When I awoke this morning the storm has blown things all over my yard.  It took down an old tree in my back yard.  Funny enough the tree split when it came down and one half landed on each side of my garden.

Awww Man, You Broke My Concentration

Dance Dance Revolution Max 2So what exactly is concentration? Concentration is when you direct your mental powers or your efforts towards a particular activity, subject or problem.  This is controlled by your conscious mind.  In your unconscious mind you store everything you have ever seen heard and experienced in these neat little files called your memory.  If you can learn to access these files then you can recall more information.  The human body has one of the most sophisticated filing systems out there.  Unfortunately we are seldom taught how sort everything properly into files, and recall that information.

This morning, I was dancing with a DDR max program. It's one of those games where you follow the arrows on the screen and put your foot on the corresponding square. I haven't played it in awhile, but some time ago I use to do it almost every day as a means to stay in shape.  As I was doing this I noticed I was relaxing.  Exercise always relaxes me.  I noticed a few times I did the routines flawlessly.  Those times when I forgot what I was doing but saw the score at the end and was like wow, perfect score.  The minute my concentration was broke, I was off step and analyzing how to get back on track.  The more I actually tried to think about what I was doing the worse I did.  Yes, for those of you going oh wow this is a playstation 2 game I know my system is outdated and I really need to get the Wii :))))))

So I tried to just listen to the music and relax.  The more I just listened to the music and relaxed the better I did.  Why? Because I was letting my subconscious take over.  When my body is doing what it's suppose to flawlessly because of images on a screen, that would be my subconscious leading and my conscious mind sitting in the back seat for a time being.  It is literally translating the arrows on my screen as to an action I am suppose to take.  Without my conscious chiming in it's opinion like it's too fast, or I missed that step, etc.  The conscious mind can be quite negative if you don't teach it to quiet down. :P By allowing yourself to get lost in what you are doing and let your subconscious take over for awhile, it can have the same effect as meditation.  Part of the purpose of meditating is to quiet your consciousness for a little while.  A lot of people I work with tell me that they don't have the time or quietness in their life to meditate.  That's fine, but there are other ways you can achieve the same results.  This is an example of one that worked for me.  After a bit over an hour of doing it, I was relaxed, both physically and mentally.  I also ran the equivalent of 2.5 miles the games says. :) *beams* lol

So what I'm proposing is this: When you believe that someone is actually breaking your concentration, ie you working consciously to complete an activity, they are actually interrupting your subconscious mind at work accessing your memory, or files that you have stored.  It would be the equivalent of someone making a loud noise during a meditation.  It jolts you back to consciousness.

Old Soul Attends Tarot Seminar

Merry Meet :)

I attended a one day Tarot Class seminar with Sheilaa Hite yesterday :))) It was absolutely amazing.  Sheilaa is just a tremendously loving energy to be around.  Her method of teaching is just fantastic.  I spent 9 hours with her in a classroom learning tarot and it felt like I was there for two.  She really taught me to read the cards.  She taught me the meanings of the cards but taught me to look beyond that.  When I do a spread, don't look at what the cards mean.... "LOOK" at the cards. :) Look at the picture on the cards, the colors on the card, the story the card is telling.  While sometimes the card may mean what it traditionally means it is open to my interpretation and I have to get down into the card for it may have nothing to do with what the traditional meaning is.  I honestly can't say enough good about her. :)))) She pushed me out of my comfort zone and got me dependent upon my intuition and not the knowledge I have gained.  It really was incredible.  She taught me to stand and face my own truth. Just an absolutely amazing teacher and soul.  I really can't recommend her enough.  If you ever get the chance to take a seminar with her or a meditation you should. :))))

From the moment I saw her, she felt familiar to me, and I was scanning through my memories trying to figure out why.  During the class she told me that myself, the girl seated next to me were all in past lives and were "burned at the stake"  I wasn't surprised when she told me this. :) It's not the first time I've been told I was a witch in a past life, and that I practiced as a healer in a past life. She also told me that myself and the girl next to me were old souls, and that I was an adept.  This is not the first time I've heard this either. I've been singled out many times and told I'm an old soul.  I am learning to recognize people who are.  It takes me longer though.  I need to spend a good deal of time with them to be able to tell.    It's funny how I wonder how they can tell, but I can tell you with confidence that my son is.   I learned so much yesterday from Sheila my head is still swimming, and I know it will likely take me the next few days to just absorb it.  But I'm wanting to focus in on the "old soul" part of it this morning.  So I hit up my google to browse the information available. :)

I found this description of an old soul on a reincarnation quiz online on facebook and loved it. :) If you want to take the quiz on facebook you can find it here:  http://apps.facebook.com/quizcreator/quizzes/76890

"When the winds of change blow, you, Old Soul, sense the outcome ahead of others, having seen so much before. Surprises come in smaller forms to you, as in the unexpected experiences of the senses, deepening your appreciation of the physical. You want life to last so you can explore your mature understanding of existence. You have become patient with the younger souls, understanding their paths and of the challenges they face. You forgive much, often acting as mentor without pushing your beliefs upon others. You give without great expectations of receiving. Love has become the most valued concept in your universe - this life may be your quest to perfect your ability to express and receive perfect love. Thoughts of dying do not fill you with dread, as you understand death is a part of life, and life is a process of becoming... so death is a graduation, not an end. At rest, you feel at one with the universe and are grateful for your current home, Earth. You have a heartfelt affinity for history - the connections to various periods throughout time are undeniable. Very old souls are adept at recognizing other old souls... mutual respect forms naturally between them."


I found this description on an article Mystery of the Soul Part 4.  This is only a paragraph from it.  I would definitely recommend taking a read if this area interests you. :)


Old souls are the teachers and guides of the younger souls. Having experienced life and its many facets, spiritually speaking, they are the ones among human souls most qualified to show others the Way. Usually, they possess not mere intellectual knowledge of Universal Truths, but have experienced them personally through soul-perception. Old souls enjoy their freedom and have a sense of inter-relatedness. All things to the Old soul are inseparable from itself, and are but aspects of itself. They see and feel God in everything. From the perspective of Young souls, old timers are sometimes hard to fathom. The Old ones seem to lack any powerful ambition, motivation, and enthusiasm for earthly life. They appear to be detached, reticent, and aloof. Old souls enjoy unorthodox spiritual practices, and alternative forms of healing. They are esoterically inclined--always searching for the inner truths in religion rather than conforming to its formalities; they are more spiritually aware than the soul groups of any other soul stage. Old souls are adept in choosing and expressing any of their past-life personalities according to the situations that they face in life. They might appear authoritative one moment, and at another they may act docile, sweet and innocent. Old souls know that life is a play and that they are merely actors playing roles. From the viewpoint of Baby and Young souls, the Old ones with their spiritual vision and mystical understanding are simply heretical. Old souls have often been persecuted and executed by the ignorant younger souls. The Young ones tend to attack what they fear and do not understand in the Old ones and thus create unnecessary karma. The Old soul is easygoing, eccentric, kind, gentle, loving, insightful, intuitive, and harmless, these are just some of their positive traits; Old souls have very little negative traits and ego left, although there are some "species" that can seemingly be obnoxious for certain karmic reasons. Old souls are at times lazy, weird, and unmotivated. 


I hope you enjoy :)) Big Hugs

Lovely Just the Way That I Am

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." ~Harvey Fierstein

Merry Meet :)

I saw the quote above a week ago from one of my sisters at the Mists and it really hit home for me.  I think one of the most challenging lessons that's been presented to me on my path is to get comfortable with me.   My whole life has contained people who've wanted to change me and control me.  I've realized that I'm the one at fault with that path because I let them.  Instead of standing up for myself I just became silent and did my best to please everyone around me.  It's been a long work in progress but I've become much more comfortable with who I am.  I've learned that if I can be comfortable and content with who I am the rest will fall into line.  If the people around me aren't happy with me and still want to change me then they didn't have my best interests at heart to begin with.

I'm very sensitive so I can get hurt easy.  Very easy. It has not made things easy.  I've been made fun of for being sensitive my entire life.  When people try to change me it has just cut me to the bones over the years.  So I am learning to forgive and forget and move on with my life with those who love me and make me happy in life.  Life is to short to live it trying to please everyone.  I think it's important to embrace people's differences.  Try to find the good in the people you encounter and who take part in your life and see what you can learn from them.

I love the following song and I hope that anyone who is going through the same thing will love it as well. :))))

You are lovely just the way you are ;) Don't forget that. Hugs
