  1. Ancient Sites

    Thanks for posting this topic! I'm actually planning a trip to England (mainly) and Europe in about a year, with the intent on visiting ancient sites of spiritual significance. Hopefully I can get some ideas from this thread. I've already been to Stonehenge and Avebury, but will visit them again anyway.

    I prefer walking barefoot to wearing shoes, but I wear shoes to 'dirty' places like shops and public buildings. I am pretty centred and grounded too. I didn't think about just giving it to a tree. I wouldn't want a tree to feel the pain, though. Thanks for all your help

    I have never done any healing before. A few years back, I was sitting with my arm around a very close friend. I knew she had severe back pain, and wondered if I could find it/'feel' it. I found it straight away, and was just about to take it out of her and offer it up to the universe, when she looked at me suddenly and said 'What are you doing!? what are you going do with that? you won't want it!'. I was so startled that I stopped, as I didn't think she would be able to feel what I was doing. Ever since then I have had bad back pain. It is finally easing a little, but only after much physiotherapy. Edit * shortly after that, we lost contact with each other

    Does anyone know any methods to help remove a disorder that was obtained in this manner? One that has been lingering for a few years?
  5. Holy Guardian Angel

    ""Domo arigato gozaimashita nankaina Sesai" It's Japanese. Domo arigato gozaimashita = thank you very much (past tense) [γ©γ†γ‚‚γ‚γ‚ŠγŒγ¨γ†γ”γ–γ„γΎγ™.] nankaina sesai = I'm not sure. nankaina is possibly a person's name? 難解γͺ sesai = sensai? ε…ˆη”Ÿ am i close with the nankaina sesai, Nungali?

    So, I'm currently reading a book by Philip Bonewits called Real Magic. On page 49 he briefly mentions CPK Assimilation (CPK = Cellular PsychoKinesis), thus; "For those of you who regularly perform faith-healing or curing rituals, there is an interesting phenomenon you should be aware of. It is an overlap between CPK and telepathy in which the disease is absorbed accidentally or deliberately by the healer, who exhibits the same symptoms for a short time, after which the disease vanishes from the patient and healer alike. This.....can be very dangerous to the practitioner. [....]Since if rules are broken, the healer may not be able to get rid of the disease assimilated" Does anyone have any experience with this?
  7. More Satanic Mischief

    I don't see how that's any different to other forms of religious indoctrination that I experienced as a child. I was given a picture book showing some king standing over hundreds of slaughtered babies, many with slit throats. It was horrible, I think it was a christian bible story book.
  8. Thanks guys, I was being lazy and didn't want to google the bits I'd forgotten.
  9. According to a couple of Jehovah's witnesses that popped in to tell me about Jesus (or something) the other week, in the era of the bible, we all lived to be several hundred years old. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longevity_myths However, from the skeletal fossil record, I believe that we have been gradually getting taller, and walking more upright for some tens of thousands of years. I think we are living longer in this century than we have in the past, but that generalisation may be restricted to anglo-saxon genotypes, as some asiatic peoples have a history of longer longevity, possibly due to diet choices and advanced medicinal practices (relative to anglo-saxons at the time).
  10. We're practically neighbours. I'm in Ningy Ningy country. The little mangrove tree in the ocean in my pic is from just down the road.
  11. Curious as to what state you're in, Nungali. And by state, I mean physical state, of Australia.
  12. Well, I don't know what to call you all. I used the K so as to differentiate from those who feel inclined to yank poor wee bunnies out of hats. I don't exactly refer to myself as that either, but I wanted to imply that I wished to converse with persons who practiced things of a non-material nature which caused changes in the internal or external environment without physical intervention, but that would have made for too long of a title.
  13. When I was 5 I was at the dentists, and was given gas. The dentist was working in my mouth, and I got bored. I got off the table (while he was still working on me), left the room and went down the stairs to the exit, leaving my body behind. I thought nothing of until years later I realized people don't do that kind of thing. When I was a young teen (before the internet was commonly being used in the general public) I 'woke up' inside a dream, and was absolutely amazed at the strange world I was in. I didn't do it again for several years as I had no idea what it was, and that it was even repeatable. The two events were markedly different. Whether this was due to the medical drugs or not I don't know, but I don't think so. I think the first time I was still in this physical plane, and the second time I was in a different realm. I think I may have has a predisposition for this kind of event due to my childhood; As a child I used to close my eyes and visualise myself flying over the ocean and visiting my home country and looking in my friend's windows. I also used to stare at a spot on the wall in my bedroom (when I was sent to my room for being naughty....so, a lot ) until everything went white. I also used to lie there at night and play with the phosphenes... you know when you close your eyes it's not all black? There are thousands of tiny pinpricks of light? Well those are phosphenes, and the eye (or my eyes) can see them all the time, depending on whether or not one focuses on them. I used to make them flow in waves and then change direction...stuff like that.
  14. Thank you. I just purchased the book.
  15. Daoist Diet - Meal Suggestions?

    Another of my simple favourites....onigiri! So delicious..... Cook 'asian' rice (short/medium grain). Cool. Form into a flattened ball. Sprinkle with furikake. Wrap in toasted nori. I like wrapping mine completely in seaweed;
