Hi Sam. Been a while but too much has happened that I've been unable to keep up with things in my life. Back in Saudi again for now so can do some catching up. If you still want to chat let me know Have a good one
Its been 6 years waiting for that green card so Im taking things as they come.
With the recession Im hoping its later as finances are a bit problimatic over on the Southern end of Africa. The while pagan festivities are a bit flat here as my small town as a very small following (as it were) but a few friends and I have a few things planed so it wont be totally non existant. I think the festive part of it is going to bee indoors though as its alot of thunder and lightening outside.
How did you fair with Hurricane Sandy?? I hope alls ok as from what I saw on CNN and Email friends she was one mean lady.
Home is great - I spent most of the blue moon night on the beach. Post ritual I got to chill on the rocks and watch the surf wave by. Its rained quite a bit too and the parents think Im nuts as I sit outside on the tree stump and watch the lightening and get soaking wet while the thunder rolls by. We get spring - into - summer rainfall. Im still waiting for that green card to go to the States (been waiting 7 years now) so we will see what happens in the future. For now Im chilling at home and working at the local hospital while organinsing the pagan drive for christmas so I can give the local children in the childrens home a present this year. Got to start these things early as theres always promises that never come to fruit so its alot to organise. Alls good.
Hi Sam. Im home. Been taking lots of walks on the beach chilling with the wild life. The Faigies and cosmos are in bloom and the honey birds are fighting for the vilda-dagga flowers that have been allowed to grow wild in my garden. I feel more balanced since Ive got water back in my life again.
Dragon has since been made and Ive settled for water since Ive descovered that Im so prone to imbalance without it. Living in the desert for 2 years has taught me alot - Im defenently a water child! The sttings done but the stone still has to be inserted. I decided to do that here as its more "me" if you know what I meed
Thanks it helped alot. I like the Serpentine and Spider Jasper idea. serpentines good for grounding and As the original idea was to have a dragon that symbolised all the elements a spider jasper would work too. Ill do some magic of my own and see if I can gain some answers to the choices ill place before them. Maby the little guy will like them and give me a positive answer for once.
Ill have to use the net as I dont think you would find those here in Saudi as they dont believe in the pagan/esoteric thing. Their world can be very narrow sometimes.
Im thinking of blue or green. blue is calming and soothing and green is calming and remembers growing things. Water, Moon and Spring growth - a good combination. My little dragon will have wings and a tail that curves round to form the ring itself. The original idea was to use him in ritual as a helper and balancer but I made a plaster helper who sits on my ultar and watches so the idea got stashed. I came across him sitting in my scetch pad and feel the time is now right to bring him into the real world - little rat is probably sitting in the astrial world laughing at my delema instead of helping me choose the stone he is going to have to live with.
Dragons all have fire of the spirit, the watery emotion, the airy widsom and intelegence and the solidity of the earth in their bones. They can get vengeful and angry or friendly and helpful - either way they have to be treated with respect.
I hope she stays serious as its a great Path to follow and everyday is exciting as a person sees the world in a whole different way. With magic all around everything is brighter and more of a mystery.
The stone has always been a problem which is why he has been on paper so long. Silver is a great metal as it possesses moon mystry and is quite versatile but possesses quite strong vibrations of its own, I was thinking of a protection stone but it needs to tone down or compliment the silver. Im a bit sensitive to their energy and have learned form experience to keep things subtle if I want to wear them as the headache and wobbly feel can be unbelievable.
Loosing interest is a sure sign that its not the chosen path for them - lifes not as glamerous as Harry Potter makes it out to be!! If she is serious then I suggest a practical approach as its easier to understand if one is doing it rather than just sitting in a classroom. Ive always found the way that the Path links up with the magics of the Earth, elements and spiritual realms facinating and through doing as well as reading Ive learnt alot - Our Lady has provided me many an inprompto teacher while walking outside in Her wilds. You have an excellent grasp on things as far as I can tell so you will do well as a teacher and guide. If she needs a girl to talk to then hook us up and we can compare a few notes. It may teach me a thing or two aswell.
Fire is wild and gets out of hand if you are not careful (speaking from experience here). My quartz knife helps to keep things steady. I do use circles but tend to be more of a spontaneous sort which has got me into trouble more than once!! Ive learnt to balance the flow of magics when working with the elements to keep things in a steady flux rather than out of control. Dont get me wrong as theres nothing wrong with a little spontinaety but ones health is also good - according to my level headed guardian/guides anyway. Quarts makes a good conducter aswell so it can amplify energues if required. I descovered this by accident when I ended up with a magical headache after a working once - it lasted quite an uncomfortable while.
Cats bounce in and out as they please and cross bounderies. Its why they make good familiars. Even with a complete circle they come and go as they feel. Morgan can send her energies right through the barrier. Ive given a great deal of thought to this and think that as they are most alligned with your energies the familiarity aids in their movements through your own energies to assist or guide as the need arises. I think that anyones familiar no matter the kind have this ability but it depend on if their aid is wanted as to how much they are willing to help.
