Given recent problems with spam comments in this community (advertisers) I've increased the security of this community slightly. I've changed it so that only members can post, and that joining the community requires approval from a moderator. I also removed anyone from the memberlist whose name shows as crossed out, since that usually means they were banned from LJ.

Furthermore, since I don't use LJ regularly anymore, if anyone would like to take up moderation responsibility for this community, please let me know. A newer, more active owner might be able to spice up this community and make it active again. :)

I learned this from a mod in food_porn and spreading the word in communities I moderate. I'd suggest doing likewise. Apparently the same thing is happening in Facebook.

Something/someone is going around LJ and hacking accounts of users who mod large communities. After hacking the mod LJ, they go to the community, make a post with links, and then disable comments. They also delete all the community contents (as well as the contents of the mod LJs).

If you see a post claiming the community is going to be closed down with links to where the contents can be found... DO NOT CLICK. Check the screenshot below to see how genuine the post looks.

19th-Mar-2008 11:48 am - An Odd Disturbing Dream
driving, deke, summer
I don't normally share my dreams with set groups here on LJ. However, it seemed that this one needed to be shown to this group. There's a LOT of symbolism here. I feel that I understand the symbols, but I'm rather shocked at what happened.

On to the dream.Collapse )
24th-Jul-2008 01:15 pm(no subject)

For awhile now ,our family has been experiencing "spooky" things going on in our home and to us.
It's something we're used to,as our old home was possessed by the mean old lady's spirit who lived there before my parents moved in and we were born.

Legend is that she HATED kids,even threw rocks and stuff at the neighborhood kids(from what they told me)..so that explains why me and my brother have had SO much stuff go wrong in our lives with health,work,money issues,jobs,and personal issues..it's an eternal curse ..that moved to the NEW house with us:(

This all started when my parents ,friends had a party at the house,in the dining room(which is directly under my bedroom at the time),and a OUIJA BOARD and thought it'd be funny to channel Her spirit.T apparently they succeeded .
The next day they learned her husband had passed away.That chandelier never was so active..our chandelier in our new house also moves by itself,and my bedroom is guess where?-above the dining room.I never get any sleep anymore.


Last night on 7/16/08 something strange went on in my bedroom...

I came into my room ,had been gone all day/night(was sober too!).I noticed my fan wasn't on,because i like loud stuff to drain noises when i sleep..i thought that it had broken again.

Seems I have the worst luck with fans,they dont last very long.I  think the ENERGY is inside electrical equipment,tv's and stereo's..not to mention our drained batteries in camcorders and cameras.

I  went to check to see if it was on,it was Not..it was UNPLUGGED!
It was plugged into one of those strip power surge outlets on the floor,not a wall outlet.
I have a hard time pulling plugs out of it,usually have to put a foot or hand to pull them out.Whatever pulled it out had to have hands,feet ,or just lots of Energy?
I didn't turn it off,nor unplug it,it was 100 degrees up there,that'd be suicide!


So later ,after settling in,I heard my mother scream(sometimes i hear her screaming or calling my name and she said she didnt-FREAKY)

She said she felt someone TAP her arm and shoulder -TAP TAP ..she thought it was me..what's weird is that I heard whispers ,or fast speaking ,like whisper but faster,its hard to explain..lots of strange noises.

I heard noises in my closet,down in the basement ,2 floors away..and nobody was home ,except for me and my dog ,who was with me..lots of weird occurences.


Around 3 am,I hear my mom,brother ,and dog barking..we all heard something hit the top of the roof..we always hear things,most likely birds losing their path,hitting the house..but this was different..maybe the aliens are coming for us:(

Anyways after sharing our paranormal stories with eachother I realized that this week ,7 yrs ago,my best friend and co-worker had killed himself.He was only 20..I think he's watching over me,like a guardian angel.
Maybe It's his way of letting me know he's not forgotten about me ,or make sure I haven't forgot about him..which could never happen.


It's pretty scary.I didnt sleep ,had to keep light on low..usually i sleep with the tv on.I havent slept with the lights off in my bed by myself for ages.When I do things get very weird,more whispers ,or chants,lots of unexplained noises.

UPDATE:
Last night around 11:45 pm 7/23/08:
I went to go to bed,opened my door and noticed immediately that my door didn't close because the fan usually blows it closed.I sit the fan facing the door and wall to avoid getting sniffles.
To my surprise,the fan was UNPLUGGED AGAIN! Twice in a week this has happened.I'm really freaking out and can't sleep in there anymore.

I hear strange things,voices,whispers,feel my body move out of place and feel like I'm convulsing and paralyzed .
I try to speak,or scream ,but nothing comes out..it's all very strange and scary to feel this way.

It's getting so weird ,we talked about moving .We had the same problem at our old home 8 years ago.That was a scary place.
Even the priest was scared .He came out to bless the house when my parents moved in.
He didn't stay long,in fact,he ran out saying there is too much evil in this house.

My question is who is doing this to my fan?and why is it happening.Can spirits follow you?
How can you tell if there are bad ones or good ones?
Is it possible for them to live through electrical products ..such as Fans,Appliances,Lights/Bulbs,and camera/phones?

We haven't had much luck with those things working properly and batteries drain fast.Lightbulbs don't last more than a few days . Lights go on and off when we walk near them(sometimes)..even after we tighten the bulb up.
Fans unplug by themselves(in my room),they turn off and on,go at different speeds during the night.

Our gates to keep the dog from going through the house also falls to the ground..with nobody near them.

One night Me,Mom and my dog were watching Tv & one of the gates to the Dining Room just fell over by itself.

The dining room at the old house is where the activity was ,my room was above that room then and is above the dining room now.

My dad saw our chandelier here also move and sway.There were no fans &no air coming through the ducts either.

So if anyone has any explanations,theories,thoughts,advice,or help in any way..please contact me.I'm open to anything.
~Thanks,
Lori

I generally don't use the "into the tunnel" method of spirit walking, but last night I decided to do so, because I have no access to my usual entheogens and I wanted to seek advice.

I saw a lot, some of which I'm not sure how to interpret.Collapse )

I understand what Friend Raven was telling me, but I'm not sure how to interpret my other encounters. Were they simply other spirits going about their own business, or did I pass them for a reason? If so, what do you think it could be?
28th-Feb-2008 10:11 pm - New mod needed.
I'm sorry. I am just not in a place where I can or should mod this community. It's either we get a new mod or I stop this whole "gated community" thing and open posting up to everyone.

So, who wants to manage this community? Any volunteers?
15th-Feb-2008 08:07 pm - My "By the Blood" Magickal System
Oh, my. When I first talked about the subject in other related comms, the project was only in its infancy. Something vague about my familial heritage, exploring my family in general, with Yezidi, Luciferian and Voodoo imagery. Not to mention the inspiration from Steven Leyba's USAF live gigs CD, full of ritual and ancestral summonings.

Well the altar to start with has definitely evolved since then. With some scattered few inspiring imagery related to my ancestral heritage, The Yezidi, Voodoo and photos of certain worthy family members with my father at the top. Two scarves at the sides which compliment the whole thing. As for the ALTAR itself I managed to acquire an old dresser drawer (I find them perfect for shelving and altars... and cheap) which took a little hard work; don't even ask.Read more...Collapse )

6th-Dec-2007 11:07 am - Vote for the Next Topic!!
As was previously discussed, on the 23rd (she says, not checking the calendar) the suggested topic will no longer be wards, it will be something else.

How exciting!

Anyway, here is a list of possibles that I thought of. Please vote! (Suggest others and I will edit this post to include them, including what you say about it.)

-occultism and health: such as, what is done magically or mentally to stay healthy

-occultism and wealth: are money spells moral? Do they work? Why?

-the supernatural and the 5 (or 6) senses: How does magic(k) feel? What do you feel it with?

-race and place: This is very general. Has a place ever felt hostile to you because of your interest in the supernatural? Is there anything wrong with an interest in, say, Stregheria if one is not Italian or Voudoun if one is not of African descent.

-paganism and its connection to nature: okay, by my definition paganism = nature based religion. Why or why not? Why are so many of the pagans I physically know self-acknowledged lazy couch pirates?

-superstition and the supernatural

Also, please suggest people or other communities to invite to take part in the discussion. I solemnly swear not to spam people this time.

You may want to check the rules since I changed them slightly. The biggest change is that now theory can be included rather than JUST experience. Your experiences led you to believe in that theory, right? So there you go.
