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.

Divination with a black mirror questions?
« on: December 29, 2012, 03:35:29 am »
Okay so last night I had a ritual with my small coven, everything was going fine until we decided to bring out a black mirror that I had. Previously it had been bathed in moonlight and I cleansed it that night with salt/water. So when I decided to try it first. I invoked Bast and Anubis for protection.(my two deities) Nothing much happened except I had some visions. One of the coven members decided to try it and outside of our circle there was a dog there and she started growling and barking at something. My coven sisters told me that they had seen a creature of some sort laughing and taunting the dog. We all used the mirror twice that night. So my questions are have we improperly used the divination mirror and did we maybe invite an unwanted spirit/creature into the house?:confused::(

On a note I feel really guilty about this and it has been causing me not to sleep knowing that I might have brought danger among my friends and myself. Also a coven sister was the one who wanted to experiment with the mirror so I brought it along and I did not feel comfortable using it.:o

I do what I have to do to get by
But I know what is wrong, and I know what is right
And I die for the truth in my secret life

Scrying seldom summons entities to the area, except in horror movies.

Ritual energy in general sometimes attracts all sorts of low level astral entities (often called "little astral critters"). They aren't very bright and, while sometimes annoying, generally are harmless.

Very true.  Hence the need to keep your activities within the circle.  It may also help to smudge the area with sage first.

Don't beat yourself up too much.  I don't believe harm has been done.  Do, however, learn to listen to your own inner voice, and learn to say 'no' when your inner voice gives you those feelings of discomfort about something.

Taunting astral critter within a mirror in a circle may annoy a dog, but can't usually really do much else.

Thank you, I thought it was a harmless creature as well, but some of the other members were freaking out. I realized a day after that it was some sort of critter. Can you explain to me more about what these critters actually are? I tried to explain it to a friend, but I don't think I could properly explain what it was.

Thank you, it's true I need to build up more confidence in myself. One of the people in my coven however is very overpowering.:eek:

They are very simple-minded astral entities that seem to feed off of stray energy. They are often seen in the hours after a ritual has been held, especially if the ritual was not "closed down" well which usually means all the energy raised but not used wasn't grounded.

Oh I see, that makes sense, the people at the house said after I left that the creature/critter was lurking around. I am pretty sure we closed it down properly. So I see that must have been what they were seeing and what I could sense. You also said it likes to annoy right? Because one of my friends say they saw it laughing at the dog while the dog was growling and barking in its kennel.

Sorry do you mean a taunting astral critter that was in a mirror in the circle might have annoyed the dog?

Yes it was the same coven sister who saw the creature, but another sister saw the same one taunting the dog.
