Well, you'll have a ball here.  MAGIC  :woohoo:

Heh...not quite sure how you mean that, TL.   :iasku:

Not much there right now. She's 'housecleaning'.

Nope....it's working...but it takes a LONG time for everything to load up.  Tons of stuff on there...some relevant...some not...but interesting none the less.

Just got out of there after seeing what she's trying to do for 2014.....

And when I said "Have a Ball"....I'm talking about seeing how many items you don't agree with :tearlaugh:

I was afraid of that. Hahahaha. I grew up in a neighborhood that had several Rom families and I knew most all of them. My dad owned the neighborhood Laundromat. One of them lived across the street from me. They had 11 kids. It was fun playing with them!

I've been going to this place for a long time.  I'm not into it that much but I like the creator and her staff...they are a riot and like you said...they are interesting....  I guess you can say I'm an adapted Gypsy of sorts  :tearlaugh:

Actually, what I've seen (since you told me to wait a bit to load pages) is pretty right on. Gypsies tend to use a lot of 'sympathetic magic'. She has a couple in there I knew about that do actually work very well. In fact one of them worked too well. :tearlaugh:

Hmmm. where to begin... when I was a child I always knew the answer to things... I knew others thoughts... the other children thought I was weird and no one would play with me... soon I shut down my access to the knowing as it hurt too much to know their thoughts and their laughter at me
as a teenager I knew a time when I was to the point of my demise... I took a walk down to the woods and began talking with the moon, asking why should I stay, etc... as I was walking back to my home I heard that I would move to Dallas and then to another world... well it was laughable to me as from a small town of 30,000 and not speaking to anyone, very shutdown, I could not even imagine that I would live in a city such as Dallas... well by the time I was 20 I was in Dallas... I moved from there years later and then I returned again
when I was pregnant with my first child I was resting in my bed... I awoke to the sound of my name being called again and again... I saw a giant hand reaching through the wall as if reaching for me... I cannot remember now if the hand was open to hold or grasping as if to grab me... I only remember thinking the house was haunted
from that point I began saying 'Show Me' as I began to want to know more, all this while still being told by outsiders that such a thing was bad or the devil... one day I had a vision where I was standing in a brown monks robe throwing something like pixie dust at a group of other monks in brown robes... I was telling them that I would never do it again... what, I do not know... but when I woke up I had a kundalini activation that scared me as I did not know what it was at the time
so for a time I stopped asking to be shown... later I had a dream vision of a visitor with black eyes, this haunted me for some time... it was not much later that I made my second life's journey to Dallas and I met and married the man with the black eyes... he showed me that my beliefs were true and I proceeded to begin working toward my awakening... he also gifted me with something... many visions later I find myself where I am now
now I channel my higher, ascendant neschamah, self... I know and I believe that everything is possible... And I know that quantum physics is the key that resolves all my questions about how the magic works

Ah, well I was looking at her spells - seeing if she knew her stuff there. I only looked at four different ones but they seemed alright. The problem with spells is..."Be careful what you wish for. You might get it." Best to just let things work as they will.

I think if you are inclined to be 'magical' you always knew from the time you were a child that you're 'not like' the majority of people. Somehow they sense it too, whether you say anything or not. You also tend to be very curious, about everything. You watch people and observe the things going on around you. A lot of people do end up pushing it down, sweeping it under the rug or putting it in a closet because either they're told a) "it's evil. It's the devil. Etc.",  b) they want to feel 'normal' - whatever that is, or c) they're scared of it. Maybe all of the above.

The thing is, it's inside everyone - that potential - and if it were evil we wouldn't be made like that. Most people are like that as children, but it gets covered over by various things. It's somewhat synonymous with being a creative person. Given the chance, all kids will draw, color, cut and paste, etc. But then what happens to it in the majority of people? Art itself is a form of 'magic'.

We all have that 'serpent power' within us too (kundalini). It's what gives us life, cognizance and being-ness.

Neschamah...ruled by Binah. Qabballah. But it's not so different from Tantric teachings. My teacher is of the Sons of Binah - you could say.

Just imagine what the world could have been like today if we had been told the truth when we were children.

Now, we can only hope to pass these beliefs on to our own children and hope that they have the world we dreamed of

But, working with quantum physics, I can change my past hence change my present hence change my future

It's all what I choose to believe

Oh the things I could tell here but I'll not do so. Some things are better left as they are. When I was a child and first started school, I grew to hate it more and more everyday. I got singled out by other kids around me as different from them; I could see what really is inside them and I paid dearly for it.

For many years I ran from my gifts and for many years I suffered for doing so. I was shown what I am and can honestly say that it scared the hell out of me. Growing up in a strict Christian family caused me to not speak of what I saw, for the only reference of such a thing was bad! But anywho...I'll let you all share your stories. I enjoy seeing them.

when I first joined I once asked if there were any indigo's here and no one seemed to think that they were
