Sheri,

We got a couple of books and talked with the nice lady to read her photograph. The problem is with her being so far away, I just hope DD can work with her. She is quite a load but we love her to death and want to do everything to help her develop the way she should. We are waiting breathlessly to see if her little sister might be special, too.

I used to know when things were going to happen. I never had friends who weren't there, but I always knew stuff and my poor grandmother would tell me it was all my imagination and so I quit using it. I'm hoping now, at 57, to try and get part if not all of it back. I just always felt different growing up, but I can't really explain it.

As for looting in the storm areas, it happens every time. I don't understand it, either, but what goes around, comes around, so they will eventually get theirs. I live in tornado and have seen it over and over. But I feel bad for everyone who has been hit and am sending out "good vibes".

you know whats weird I am sure if the looters helped the families get out the things they really needed or treasured the families would let them take whatever else is there for free....& also thank them for helping them....But the greed is so overwhelming when things like this occur, it just breaks my heart because as they loot they throw items that mean something to the family to the side or break it cause they can.....as what has been said...what goes around comes around.....Michele'

About the Indigo thing; I'm pretty sure my oldest, 40 is Indigo, and the youngest most likely. Both have so much to offer and want to give of themselves and help the world make its change. and from what I've read, I could possible be one of the early ones. Some of the literature says they've been around for quite some time, more coming as enlightenment and spirituality intensify. Very interesting info out there.
I had an "imaginary friend", Bobby, that I remember talking to, I've always sort of known things, had intuitions about events sometimes, pretty much understand animals, and have ALWAYS felt out of place and out of sync with most other people.
Interesting topic.


To me, a witch is a woman that is capable of letting her intuition take hold of her actions, that communes with her environment, that isn't afraid of facing challenges.

Hi all, thankfully most of the people wandering around the damaged areas are there to help. I take comfort in the fact that the ones up to no good, will eventually pay for their greed. one of my daughters friends lost her house, thankfully? she was in the hospital and therefore she and her kids weren't home. she has serious heart problems and was hospitalized for pneumonia. I'm torn between being thankful that she wasn't home and wishing she could get a break. still, if they had been home, they might not have survived.

I'm too old to be an Indigo, but i used to scare my Mom with things I would say. Like, we have been here before, and describe the area, when we hadn't been there. my Mom would say, shut up kid, your scaring me. LOL. my daughter is very sensitive and intuitive also. I'm still learning to listen to that little voice again. never really felt like I fit in, raised my daughter to believe that blending in and being "normal" is highly over rated.

blessings to all. Phyllis

Hi Margaret. Welcome to MJF. This thread will be busy for awhile and then quiet down. It tends to go in spurts. I too, love Thoreau. My favorite quote goes "Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star". Oh, how much of life just goes by unnoticed as we operate daily in our habitual circles without even realizing that we repeat our daily patterns so easily. Right now, I am just drinking in the sunshine like a starved soul. We have had so little sun for months and our spring is 6 weeks late. The leaves just emerged on the lilacs and the Maple and willow trees and normally the lilacs are in bloom by now. I imagine most of you are already working your gardens and normally I would be too but the ground is still cool and wet and we have been down in the 30's every few nights. I am looking forward to warmer days and less wind so I can begin to pick and wash my fleeces. My poor sheep have been freezing all naked with this weather and they lay taking sun baths with as much relish as I do. The bonus for me has been working in my grow room with the baby plants who are behind even with a halide light. I am beginning to suspect magnetics since this convergence coupled with the radiation from Japan has been effecting things.

I hope all is well with everyone. So good to see you post again Phyllis - are you feeling better?

Blessings, Sheri

Hi Margaret, welcome!!!!! glad you are here.

Sheri, thanks for asking, I'm doing a little better. it's a chronic illness, so I have ups and downs. I do enjoy reading all the posts even when I can't add anything to the discussion. ; )

Gals! Cluck on over to urbanthreads.com and take a look at their patterns for hand stitching. They are all on 50% special until the end of the month and there are some very lovely patterns available.

Happy Stitching!

Sharon, I LOVE, LOVE Urban Threads. Have ordered a lot of their designs. Got a number of them this weekend at 50% off - what a deal. I also do the hand embroidery and now have a stack of U.T. designs ready to transfer onto whatever to stitch up. They have such a variety of designs to choose from. Picked up some baby designs for #14 grandbaby due in June to put on some onesies or t-shirts for later. They are so cute. But also got some for me of course. Can't wait to start stitching!!! Super great site. Check it out ladies. And a big welcome to Margaret. You'll really enjoy this thread.

Hello, ladies. Looking again for some suggestions of good books to read about this path. Thanks in advance for the help! It's something I'm interested in, but hard to learn about when you're kind of "alone" in your searching. :)

good to see you Amy and Annette, I thought everyone had given up on this thread. Amy, I'm currently reading Hedge Witch by Ann Murphy Hiscock. it's pretty simple as far as ritual goes. I'm more a "granny woman" than a formal practice. the book covers the hearthcraft of having a spiritual and practical home practice.

I'm wondering if anyone knows how you "raise power" when you are ill. I wonder how you do ritual when sitting up is a challenge. I feel like I mention my illness too much, but it does affect every part of my life. just wondering how everyone else deals with illness.

there are lots of smart, spiritual sisters here, Amy, I'm sure they will have some good suggestions. this thread gets really quiet sometimes, but hopefully they will check in with some good suggestions. blessings Tn.earthmama

@ Amy: I am reading a really great book right now called Witchcraft Medicine: Healing Arts, Shamanic Practices, and Forbidden Plants by Claudia Muller-Ebeling, Christian Ratsch, and Wolf-Dieter Storl. It is translated from German and has so much to recommend it: history, lore, herbs, magic. I LOVE this book. Found it on Amazon.

@ Phyllis: I am so sorry you are struggling. I do believe that so much of what we do is about our clear intention, and if you need to use a comfortable position for your ritual, your intention will correct anything else that may seem askew. Be gentle with yourself around all aspects of your life, especially this. Sending you healing blessings of strength and joy.

Hi Deborah, thanks for the support, and the info on the good book. will have to look it up. it sounds like just the thing. I have adjusted my life to accomplish as much as I can within my limits. sometimes as I'm struggling to stand and cook a meal, I think, don't want to send this energy into the food, ya know?

glad we have found each other here to be support for each other. where i live there are certainly not very many that share my spiritual beliefs. it's good to have everyone here to learn from. thanks and bright blessings Phyllis

@Phyllis, astral work is as good (sometimes better, depending on the situation) as doing a physical ritual.

Phyllis, Thanks for the welcome :c)
I wish I had a good author to recommend but I have been so caught up in trying to finish my nursing degree that if the book is not a text I haven't looked at it in quite awhile.

@ Annette: Ah nursing school... I remember those days. I was so buried in my textbooks, it was four or five days before I even heard about the disaster at Chernobyl!

Phyllis, It's been awhile since I studied this hard myself, been a licensed Optician for 20 something years. I earned my LPN 2 years ago as a stepping stone toward my RN... we were blessed with a surprise ( at 40 years old mind you ) just after I was accepted into an RN program so I withdrew and backed up a bit at the urging of my Doctor.. " you're high risk,you're too old to homeschool, mother/wife, be pregnant and go to school yourself full time.. something has to go"..she was right I wound up on bed rest for the last 3 months and he still showed up a month early.
So now lil man is 5 and I am attempting to finsh my education... my brain hurts!

wow, you have been busy. congrats on your little surprise. if it helps, my Grandmother had twins at 40, she had 7 other kids. my oldest uncle said"my god, their coming in pairs now". LOL. I can sure understand needing to put school on hold. glad everyone one was ok after 3 months of bedrest.

I'm glad I'm not trying to do school now. The M.E. has turned my brain to mush. tests have shown a drop in IQ from this illness of 50 points, and I couldn't afford that. ; ) my daughter also has it, she is going to be 34 on Sun. and has been pretty much house bound for 18yrs. and now my husband has been sick for the past 3 yrs. makes for an interesting life around here.

do you have a favorite area of nursing that you want to go into? I worked my last 6 yrs in neonatal ICU, before that I did hospice. I am trying to learn all I can about herbal and natural healing now, just can't remember what I have read much of the time, so I keep lots of books on hand. would love to find someone in my area to learn from. I know there are folks around here that know folk medicine, I just need to find them.

Hi all! You know, I alway thought the terms witch and farmgirl are pretty synonymous. I mean who else reveres and touches the Earth as much? So nice to meet others who get that connection.

I've done my best to read a lot of this thread to catch up and I'm looking forward to the journey from here!

MM,
Cate
