And yes, it really isn't anyone's business especially at work. It's not affecting how you work. We have many Pagans at my place of employment.

Kim, I'm always up for learning new ideas. Are you studying this now? Would be interested in what you have learned and what books you have read on the subject.

Annie S~ No I haven't. I read up on stuff here and there on the internet. Sometimes, I'll buy Scotland Magazine if there are interesting articles. I have been enamored with Fae and such. Druid rings ( I saw a bunch of them in England without even getting to Stonehenge). I am interested in learning more Celtic and Appalachia Folklore, as well.

Alyce, that is disconcerting!!! hopefully your boss is not one of those narrow minded folks and will continue to treat you the same( I agree it's no ones business). keep us posted on how things are going.

blessed Imbolc all. Phyllis



So far so good...I suppose it helps that she considers me pretty much indispensable. (That, and she has recently had complaints filed against her; she probably doesn't want to risk me suing her for discrimination.)

After thinking about it, Rachel, I realized that was exactly the problem. I felt pushed, honestly.

Kim, I'm with you too regarding the fact that so many "celebrations" are Pagan in origin. Most people don't even know that. Funny how that all works out.



Thanks. So far, so good!

We live in a far more pagan-oriented culture than many people realize--or want to realize. Great, isn't it?

I envy you! Some years ago before I met the Mister, I worked at a Jockey outlet store to make a few extra bucks (I was pretty low-ranking at the library at that point). Almost half of the staff was some form of Pagan.

I also know of a few that mix Christianity with some sort of Paganism. My daughter is also Pagan.

It's a shame that happened at work. My old boss always talked about the Solstices and various things. Maybe your boss is sticking her toe in the water with you because is some sort of Pagan/Witch herself?

Thank all of you for your healing thoughts and wishes. Finally feeling human again!

I've been checking out the Celtic side of things. My father's family is from Germany (he was their only child born here) and my mom's family lineage is German, Irish, Dutch, English, and Welsh, so I think that is why I'm feeling pulled in that direction. So far I've found 3 books that really interest me that I am getting ready to read through. Can't find too much around Oklahoma to help me out with this journey, but I'm trying. I have a granddaughter who sees people other of us cannot see and I'm trying to get the DD and granddaughter through this. It's okay, we're getting there.

Thanks all of you for your support and help through this.

Kim--I wish, but she is a staunch Catholic.

Wow Kay, you could even be dual-trad with a lineage like that! I have a similar background (Norwegian, Irish, and French on my dad's side; French, Scottish, Irish, English, Dutch, and Spanish on my mom's). My mother was always interested in the Celts, but I ended up drawn to my Germanic/Norse heritage.

Best of luck to you and your family on this journey; I know it may be unsettling for your granddaughter, but as long as she's accepted she'll learn to accept it--does that make sense? (FWIW, I come from a long line of psychics--but since my great-grandmother's day they have all been very repressed. I *can't* repress it; I've tried.)

Since we're all giving our lineage, here's mine: Father's side - French and Irish/Mom's - Native American and Danish.
Kay, how old is your GD? If she's very young, maybe she feels scared and "different" and doesn't know how to handle her situation. Sounds like you may have more issues with the daughter being Catholic and not so accepting. Deeply hoping that this situation has a promising outcome.

Father's side: Navajo, Iroqoui,(maternal) English, Welsh(paternal)
Mother's side: Irish(maternal) German(paternal)

I'm just me. I do what feels right but never realyl anything outside of what my heritages would contain. No Norse for me, no African or Hawaiian or whathaveyou...

Mostly Celtic with a bit of Native (I did my first sweat lodge last year at the pagan festival I go to annually....since I am pregnant and will be at fest this year, I get to bless the water for the lodge :-) )

Shy is 4 and is perfectly okay with what's going on. It's Mom and Dad who are a little freaked out and now that they are in Germany, things are a little different now. At their last place in Texas she had 3 "friends" but so far in Heidelberg she only has 1, which surprises me. We did have her aura picture made and it is amazing! The owner of the shop who took the picture was giddy when she saw it and spent almost an hour talking to us about it. We're trying our best to keep her open and not scare off her gift.

Kay, that's wonderful to hear. My mother always told me the water pipes made all the noises I heard (panicked whispers and talk about one of the wells). I've since learned that my childhood home is extremely haunted because of a tragedy that occurred there sometime around the Civil War. While I still can't repress what I "sense," I sometimes wonder how much more clarity I would have if Mom hadn't told me to ignore it.

It's good that you're so accepting of it; that will make her life a lot easier!

Kay,What an amazing gift your grand-daughter has! My BFF's little sister had a gift but it was never encouraged and I think she eventually lost it. Alyce, I feel you can get things like that back. You have to work at it, but I think it will eventually come back. My daughters friend had similar experiences and was told she was imagining things. I used to wake up ion the middle of the night right before a friend would call in distress. 9 times out of 10 I would wake up at 1 or 2 in the morning, think about her and the phone would ring.

Have you read the book "Psychic Living"? It's quite good and it has alot of exercises in it to strengthen your "psychic muscles"

Think I'll check out that book, Rachel. Ever since we moved into our house I have heard voices at night - but not every night. I first thought DH had left the TV on and I'd get up to turn it off, but TV wasn't on. The voices are on the muffled side, but I do hear something. There are two mine openings at the bottom of our mountain and wonder if I'm hearing the voices of miners or pioneers or Indians who travelled or stayed on this land. Have never in my life heard voices before in any place I've lived, only in this house.

I'm still working on reading it--about 3/4 of the way. I found mine on Amazon for 5 bucks or so. The old house we lived in years ago had lots of haints in it. They'd talk, you could hear a couple of kids playing --and they loved to mess with my son's toys. Then there was one that my son was really scared of until I bought him a toy shotgun and told him to shoot it if it bothered him...that did the trick. They also liked to turn stuff on and move stuff alot. Really annoying at times. After that house burned down, not much goes on around here haintwise anymore.

I will check it out too. We have "company" in our house. Not all the time. We get a strong just lit cigarette aroma and neither of us smoke. We do not allow anyone else to smoke in our house either. We both quit long before we got the house. Occasionally when I try to get out to the laundry if my hands are full the door opens. I thank whoever does it. We've never been scared except for the night "someone" stomped up the stairs and walked over to the bed and stood right by my husband's side. Neither one of us looked and it hasn't happened since. We're not afraid. We have lost things around here, searched like crazy (we looked for my Day Runner for 2 years) and then they just show up. It's interesting.

Glad to hear others of you have had the same experiences. So far nothing bad has happened to us or we're not missing things. In a way I'd like to make contact with whomever it is I hear. Of course DH doesn't hear anything at all and thinks I'm crazy. Oh well!

I always thought it'd have been fun to have gotten Ghost Hunters in that house (but it burned down before I knew about that show) then I figured, they'd probably all just be sitting around snickering quietly so Jason & Greg (I think) would say nothing going on here!
