* "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.

looking for info about Njal/Gebor
« on: June 13, 2017, 02:06:46 pm »
Hello,
Tonight I had a dream. In this dream I met a woman and a man. They were kind of protecting me, keeping an eye on me while I was wandering around some place. The woman said she was Nial or Njal or something like that. The man Gebor or Geber. I am not sure how to spell the names  correctly. Does anybody know these names?  I am curious who they are and where they come from.

The names sound familiar, though I cannot recall from where. The chances are they are most likely not Deities. In my experience, the Deities almost never, if ever directly show themselves to people. Usually, I feel their power from somewhere on the other side. It's also possible they are spirit guides of a sort who have revealed themselves to you I had a similar experience with something very similar if that is the case, though I shant discuss it in detail here. I would need to be more certain of that and it may be something too personal to reveal to those who aren't members of my family. It's one of the complexities that comes with dealing with the ancestors.

Edit: As it turns out, Njal is one variant on the spelling of Njall, an old Nordic name. It's also the name of the eponymous focus of Njal's Saga which was put to paper some time in the 13th century in Iceland.

Thank you for your answer. I  think they are probably a kind of guides. I know the name Njall from the Nordic saga'sbut that is a man.

Oddly, the only connection I can think of for 'Gebor' is Zsa Zsa Gabor, who is a woman. So, symmetry?

According to Behind the Name (which I frequent for various reasons, including as a jumping-off point for research into things like this), "Geber, meaning "He-man," son of Uri, was one of King Solomon's regional administrators; his territory was Gilead. (First Kings 4:19)." So uh, looks like you've got the power of Grayskull on your side.

Also from the same site, "Gabor" is a Hungarian form of Gabriel, who of course is an archangel.
