Merry Meet, lovelies~
« on: July 04, 2012, 02:50:42 PM »

        Well, I'd like to start out by thanking the Admin for accepting my request to join this wonderful forum. Feel free to call me Jess. I am fairly new to witchcraft and Paganism, starting out pretty Atheistic. I am currently being trained by the best to become a Celtic witch. Good thing then that I love to read! My best friend originally is the one who sparked my interest in the occult, as she is a Witch herself. Now of course I took the knowledge that there are REAL witches as kind of silly and a few too many Harry Potter puns and references came to mind when she told me, but I just smiled and was honest with my desire to learn more. I believe in Karma and free will. I swore to myself that I will never do a spell, not until I know what I am doing, and the repercussions of my actions.

           I may be 19, but I've lived enough to last me a few too many lifetimes. Abuse, neglect, the like. All on a mature level that was hard to handle for someone my age. In other words, I had to grow up fast. I faced homelessness for about a year, and eventually settled with my friend (the Witch I mentioned) and her husband. Here, I enjoy nature and all her glory, surrounded by trees, rushing brooks, lush landscapes, horses, and maybe one too many chickens. I help with the farm-work and love every sweaty, stinky minute of it. I am always looking for advice and knowledge on Magick, Wicca, and Paganism. So far the help I get is from books, which is a wonderful start, but I have a desire to learn things from those who practice them. I have a "wall" around myself that I have built through the years, and many close friends who have psychic tendencies and talents "bounce off of me" in their words. My pineal gland, or "third eye", is closed and that is my biggest struggle right now. To better understand nature and myself I have to open those walls that I enclosed myself in. I cannot feel them or see them.

          I cannot accurately do magick or feel energies, much less work with them or direct them into my will. So all I ask is that you help me to learn and understand that which I already know exists, but cannot be a part of yet. I love to make staffs, smudges, and herbal/crystal charms. I want to be understood, and for that, I will always strive to understand. So much so that when I discovered this forum, I spent a few days or so nonstop reading every single post. Hahaha yeah, No life here. Feel free to ask any question at all, I have nothing to hide. I speak my mind, but I see this as no excuse for me to be insensitive or crass. As I said, I will always try to understand. Blessed Be.

Greetings kid, welcome to the zoo.
I was looking at your photo. If you had blond hair you would be the twin to my niece (Sammie). Her sister's name is Jess.

I was wondering - are you from Louisiana by any chance and did you study to be a paramedic at any stage?

Your life story reminds me of someone I vaguely know from there is all.


Welcome aboard.

To the op,

You're text looks fine on my end.  I use the smf default Curve theme.  The green theme blinds me.  ;D

I will offer some friendly advice, paragraphs with long posts will go along way when people read your posts.  We have some people that have been accused, who will go nameless by me for being abusive to new members at times for spelling, grammar and the like.  The one particular person that comes to mind will.... 1. read your post and comment nicely.  2.  Ignore your post all together.  or 3. Be abusive about grammar to you.  When she acts like 3.  and you can never tell with her, it's really not pretty.  She usually gets away with it, because she is correct, and she is a great asset to this board, because she is the real deal, a witch if you will.  She has vast knowledge to offer if people pay attention to her.  I would consider her a teacher of sorts.  As I said, just very friendly advice for future posting. :)

I truly do like the color of your op....  ;D

Er... Sorry, I didn't realize that I had poor grammar. I am usually a grammar Nazi, so to speak. I typed a long paragraph because I had a lot to say about myself, so that people in the future can know where I'm coming from. As for this woman that you speak of, I think I'll be alright. I'm a tough cookie, albeit with a bitter-sweet gooey shell (ick?) and I can hold my own in debate or insult. No I am not from Louisiana, sorry haha. I'm from Indiana, but live in Michigan. And I chose the maroon font because the white blinded ME, so I really have no idea what others may have been seeing. I figured it'd be easier on the eyes. I'll switch to beige or stick to white in the future. Sorry for another long post. Merry Meet, and Blessed Be~ )O(

"Pineal" is an interesting concept actually. Care to expand upon what it means to you - and how you happened upon it??

Do you ever employ your pineal gland to help you achieve mystical states for example  - or do you think it has owt to do with accessing a dream state - or interpreting and/or reacting to the world in oddly discordant ways?

I'm just fascinated by the concept myself.

We can change from the green theme? Why did no one tell me that had finally become available...
*makes the green go away*

Buttershark, first welcome :) Second, best thing to do is just use default text when you are posting (ie no color formatting) that way no matter which skin someone is using the text is readable.

Well, Eartha, upon research I found that the pineal gland, located just behind the center of the forehead, or between the brows, actually effects how the general human perceives the world. It is actually very commonly called the "third eye" and it definitely seems to have some correlation in psychic activities. That is, some with very active pineals claim to see fae, the vale, and energies more easily. So many are no discovering that that may very well be our "sixth sense" and all creatures have ultra-sensory tendencies (as in, cats and dogs "smelling fear", or knowing your emotions) but humans, having been raised that all things but science are myths, ignore it or do not use it. That is why a baby is, in theory, much more in-tuned to their third eye and imaginary friends seem so much more real, they can see spirits in a haunted area where we cannot. The like. It's quite fascinating, truly. 'Tis only a theory, though. Although a very proven concept at this point. :]

Cartesian metaphysics was really interesting on it actually. A lot of people ignore the work Descartes did on anatomy. He wasn't a Mathematician and a metaphysicist exclusively . He did a great deal of work and study in anatomy - he was a proper Renaissance man. He actually went into great depth on the pineal gland in both The Treatise of Man and The Passions of the Soul .

I love Descartes. He's a beautiful writer. If you're interested at all you ought to look him up.

Yeah Khara, once again, sorry for the op color. I didn't realize it'd be more difficult for others to read it. I'm using the black background and the white really hurts my eyes and makes everything vibrate and bleed together. I really didn't know what others would be seeing. I suppose the info wasn't really that important anyways. Thanks for the welcome, and Eartha, I will definitely give Descartes a look!
