I'm Chinese, and the only time I've ever been told I was Asian in a past life was by a Chinese fortune teller. All caucasian psychics told me I was Native American, European, or from Atlantis. I'm just curious about how it is that Asian has ~30% of the world's population (if not more) and no one is told they were Asian in a past life.

Apparently I was Japanese in at least one past life.....

I've had past-life regressions a few times; in one I was a WWII bomber pilot, in another an ageing former Samurai warrior spending his last years in a monastery     

I seem to recall at least one other past life in what might have been Atlantis, or somewhere similar, but I suppose it could just have been pre-Ice Age Europe.....

Blessed Be Skyanne and everyone,

Alchymist

1)  No worries.  I do it all the time.

2)  Good for you, in all the ways you mention and more.

3)  "You get what you pay for"  is sometimes abused by other "witch academies".  The mainline organizations you mentioned are legitimate.  Only you can determine the "worthwhile" part.

4)  I have.  I did a funeral for a Druid a few years ago and had to be in touch with an american Arch Druid and an English Arch Druid as to what to do with his kit.  They were helpful, but very insistant and very specific.

5)  Yes, it is.

6)  No, you don't.  People do it all the time.  But, (think for a second on the way I'm saying this), people do it with Wicca all the time, too.

Thank you so much C_A!

3) Whew, that's a relief. I've been debating joining the OBOD, but I've been holding back. It's in my nature to be anxious and paranoid, and I wanted to be absolutely certain that everything was legitimate.

5) Those are probably the most exciting italics I've seen.

6) I roomed with a "Wiccan High Priestess" for a month or so last year... It was enlightening in the worst way... I really want to avoid becoming a "Druid".

It will probably take me a while before I make a move, but I now have 3 more books to read to help pass the time (thanks to og)!

I can't thank you both enough. :)

" The Veil of Isis : Mysteries of the Druids " by William Winwood Reade . This book is from the 1860's so you will have to find a reprint from 1992 . On all this books check you library before you spent the money to by them .

"The Druids : Celtic priest of Nature " Jean Markale .

" The Path Of Druidry : Walking the Ancient Green Way's " Penny Billington .
 

"The Veil of Isis" has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while. After I finish my current book (tonight, if I have my way) I'll dig into it.

"The Druids" I also have waiting for me. I'm trying to get through Markale's "The Celts" first, but it's a very dry and detail heavy read. I have the feeling I will have to read it again to really start absorbing all the information. Is it necessary to finish "The Celts" first to understand "The Druids"?

"The Path of Druidry" is a new one! I'll look for it in my library! :D

Thank you so much!

Just wanted to throw this out there.

Peridot , you can be trained by one or many I was trained by my Grandfather and his cousin in the Welsh tradition . Anything you need as tools , robe pouches can be made . You can study by yourself and get a greater understanding .

Here are a few books that you should read to start out on your journey .

" The Veil of Isis : Mysteries of the Druids " by William Winwood Reade . This book is from the 1860's so you will have to find a reprint from 1992 . On all this books check you library before you spent the money to by them .

"The Druids : Celtic priest of Nature " Jean Markale .

" The Path Of Druidry : Walking the Ancient Green Way's " Penny Billington .

Be weary of online classes . If you go that way check them out first and make sure they are legit . There are a few book that help in teaching you but the are like a text books with labs and take a year to go through .

If I casn be of any help let me know .
