* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Coincidence and Communication with Deities
« on: October 06, 2014, 05:44:11 am »
I don't believe in coincidences.  I believe that they are some god's way of communicating.  

I posted about an "in-your-face irony kind of thing" as a way that Pele communicates with me.  When I was writing that post about Pele, I happened to be watching an old movie, "Black Widow."  There's a scene where they're standing near the volcano, watching the eruption, and this scene showed up right when I was writing my post about her.

That's how she makes herself known to me--through coincidence and "in-your-face irony."  She's not always near me--in fact, she's rarely been around me lately--but when she comes close, I know there will be cataclysmic changes in my life.

She's baa-aack! My first response is usually, "Swell," and then I dig my toes into the earth and wait for it.

I'm a biologist and I see patterns, so finding things in nature is how I communicate with my patron deity.  I talk to her in English, and Hawai'ian as I can, and she responds by setting my island on fire or showing up as an Arizona lava flow or a necklace of peridot (which is known as Pele's tears and is my birth stone) or a coincidence in a movie.

Just wondering how y'all communicate with your deities and how they communicate with you.

I've found my way with Pele and she's helping me reconnect with God and my God-self.  I've gotten way too comfortable in my skin and I'm trying to learn how to step back again, but this is another thread!

If you understand, things are just as they are.  If you do not understand, things are just as they are.

I don't believe in coincidences either, or accidents. I've found sometimes the deities are very subtle, at other times I get a "Gibb's head slap". But I very, very rarely ask them for anything other than protection (usually from my own stupidity:p) or guidance. Usually I communicate thanks, or I just chit-chat.

Vishnu is the heart of Shiva; Shiva is the heart of Vishnu - Skandopanishad
