* "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.

Dia De Los Muertos
« on: October 30, 2016, 04:49:56 pm »
Is anyone going to "celebrate" ( for lack of a better term) Dia De los muertos?  What are you planning on doing?
 I haven't found my path yet so I am just doing what I am comfortable with and what  I know.  This will be my first time. I feel very emotional  as I am grieving.

I might light a candle on All Souls Day (I'm not Mexican) and keep in mind everyone who's deceased and I appreciate or look up to.
I'm a simple person, and I like to think that spirits of the dead dont care if they're remembered quietly or with a full on festival. As long as it's genuine.
Naboo: This is black magic. This is hardcore. Don\'t mess with the occult.
Vince Noir: I thought it was good for you.
Naboo: What?
Vince Noir: Well, you know, good for your digestive system.
Naboo: That\'s Yakult!

No idea yet.  I'm Hispanic (Mexican actually) by way of heritage but, despite where I live, much of that culture is foreign to me.  

I'll probably look for a public celebration and go attend that.
Spider Man 3 never happened. And Epstein didn't kill himself.

I'm from there also. I would have loved to go to a celebration down there but I moved north.

replying to my own  original post:
 I made my altar, I used marigolds, candles, pictures, and I set up the incense .bowl of salt, and cup of water and a mexican flag banner instead of papel picado. I gave offerings of favorite foods.  I also played the  favorite music of my deceased loved one. I did good with what I could find on short notice.

 I feel drained now.  I know its not really a pagan ritual but I feel like maybe I should have shielded and grounded myself. I ate after but it hasn't helped.

Grief is draining. Being tired after giving yourself over to remembering a loved one who has died is, in my experience, pretty normal.

Being gentle with yourself - eating things that work well with your body and are comforting, going to bed early, taking the rest of the day easily, are a good idea in general.

Thank you. I will take it easy and take a nap.
