    Many Ways To Walk Out Of One's Head

    I had no thought. I was not in my verbal brain. My perception…. oh, I can’t begin to describe it, or remember it. All I know is that I was being, and in being, I was freed to do things that I can’t do. Or so I am told. It was so blissful. I didn’t...

    Shaman

    I have come to realize that my calling is towards shamanism. I feel that I need to get to the Amazon a.s.a.p. I would love to apprentice. Shamans, in western culture, could be diagnosed with schizophrenia?

    Fraying Threads

    The threads in the tapestry fray. edges blur, undefined. Returning to the beginning. that empty nothingness. The bane of all. It has already begun to consume us. Barely held at bay, it approaches, a gibbering mass of pure consumption. Life itself hangs in the balance. Good and...

    Cave Delay

    Can’t even go to the caves! I was supposed to today, But there are torrential rains, Now I must suffer more pain. They do not want me to go And see the things I must be shown, So I bite and fight and grow, Must learn to enjoy the show. Close my sight and shut my...

    Odd Communion

    It is hard to focus. I delve so far into my own mind it is like I see through different eyes. I am called, pulled somewhere. Where does my heart lead me and can she hear me? I scream like a beacon across the very universe. When will she hear me and heed my call? Is the wolf...

    Spiritual Evolution

    I have been a Pagan all my life, though I only realized it about 12 years ago when I joined a group in Canterbury and became a Practitioner of Natural Magic. Last year I started to become aware that my 'path' was going towards the Druidic belief system and felt that I was being...

    Struggle Of The Shaman Path

    I was a child prodigy in paying attention.  I could be extremely focus or allow myself to drift away into the abyss of nothingness, and I was happy as a child. As I grew up I was told I was great with computers and that would be a good choice for me.  I felt sort of stale.. not...

    Stone Dreams

    I hate it when I lose my dreams, forgetting some important things. Of realms I do lie between, but what do all the tidings mean? Battle looms over us all, who can hear my howling call? Alone I do survey the wall, it must stand and never fall. Do I see what happens now, or do...
