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.

So that's who's in my life right now. Let me hear who's in yours!

I've had a few really tough years, and recently Kuan Yin has made her way into my life, bringing all the love and compassion she is known for with her. I am absolutely loving building a relationship with and learning from her. Her presence in my life is a true blessing, and is something I really want to make the most of.

So here I'm asking a fairly straightforward question: who's in your spiritual life right now?

 
The two main ones for me are Brighid and YHWH/Allah. The former because I am drawn to her motherly/creative energy and I find her to be a very comforting presence. The latter because I've used him as a rock for so long that his voice is the strongest in my entire spiritual experience. He's the one who yells the loudest, has the strongest hold on my mind and heart. I get a lot of mixed messages from him about the other gods in my life that I try to call on. I don't get any bad feelings from him when I do witchcraft at all but I do get a little anxiety cooking up when I call on other gods--including Brighid. He's extremely jealous and so protective so I'm trying to work out how to keep his energy down a bit in my life.

I called on the Morrigan last night and really felt like I had to. The moon was new and I was having so many sad emotions stirring and so much stress. We had a group of friends over for a bonfire and I kept looking up at the trees' dark silhouettes against the smokey looking clouds in the black sky and felt like there was something there so magickal and calling me so forcefully. So I put my beer down, went inside the house, pulled out a black candle and I called for the Morrigan to help me kill the sadness going on in my heart and bring forth a new rebirth of comfort and warmth and lightness that I really crave. I lit the candle, brought it out on the porch and let it burn down as our bonfire continued.

And then one of my friends blew it out as we were packing up -_- Grrr. Muggles.

OH! Not to change the subject here but last night at the local pagan bookstore in my town, I found a Kwan Yin oracle deck and the art on it was phenomenal. Just beyond gorgeous. She is always surrounded by some impeccable art. I have half a mind to buy the oracle deck and attach magnets on the back of the cards to use them as decor. I won't since Kwan Yin doesn't have any presence in my life but man, was it tempting.

Back to the topic. Sorry all.

You know, you seem to be right. I've seen plenty of ugly art for other deities, but for the most part Kwan Yin has good shit. Huh.

I went to one of her temples in Japan, in Ofuna, because my mom used to live there in the 70s teaching English and she had these old Polaroids of this huge statue coming out of the mountain. This is the one here. Anyway, you go inside the statue to view the shrine, but isn't that statue gorgeous?

Anubis: he's played a major role in my life for the past year (has it really been over a year?!?) since I became Kemetic.  I'm hesitant to put any kind of label on our relationship, just that it's become something much more deep and intense that I first thought it would.

Osiris: he's my Father, and who I talk to when I need someone who'll just listen (if I try to whine to any of my other deities, they'll tell me to go fix my shit.)

Anupet: is a teacher, and she's the main one to tell me "go fix what's bothering you."

Kebechet: Anubis pushed me towards her.  I'm still building my relationship with her, but I've enjoyed working with her.

Ma'at is always in my life even when I followed the Wiccan path. I can't explain why the pull towards her is so strong but every time i meditate or pathwork she's there providing warmth reassurance and love.

I'm searching for my path at the moment trying to define my way and I know Ma'at will have to feature.

I think I know the one you're talking about, is it the Kuan Yin Oracle by Alana Fairchild? It's absolutely incredible, and I have every intention of purchasing it when I have the funds. :)

Just out of curiosity, what are you indicating by writing the name this way?

That they are the same God. Allah in Arabic translates to "God" and is the god of Abraham. The same one Christians and Jews worship. Christians who live in Arabic speaking nations refer to him as "Allah" as well.

I was a Muslim prior to being a witch so I use "Allah" naturally when I refer to the God of Abraham

Agreed! I've already got the associated meditation CD, which has three ~20min guided meditations for Kuan Yin, and I really enjoy it. I can't wait to get the Oracle deck! I'm hoping next pay day. ;)

Accidental purchases happen to me, even in stores. I just walk up to the register to ask if I can see an item in a case, and as soon as I've held it in my hand....oops, it's come home with me.:eek:

Yeah, I saw the Kuan Yin oracle in a store a while ago, but waffled for too long until it was bought. Sarasvati didn't seem too upset. She uses the Enchanted Oracle with me. My familiar made me buy it. I walked into the store, and she drew my attention to it, and as soon as I saw it I was like "OK...this is mine."
KARMA: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
