* "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.

I Feel Pulled & I don't Understand.
« on: April 04, 2013, 01:46:05 pm »
I'm sorry for mispelling "feel" I had a moment :D

So what I'm about to say is probably going to sound a little crazy. I've been researching Wicca and other pagan traditions for about two years now and even started looking towards the Kemetic (I hope I spelled that right, I'm a terrible speller) Gods, which was working out fine with me. However for the past week or two I have felt a pull towards The Saints. Now this is strange to me, because well I wasn't brought up Catholic and really know absolutely nothing about the Saints. I was brought up a Christian, but my family has never been "religious". Furthermore, I can't seem to figure out why the Saints are calling me, a non believer, haha. I have been trying to see if I could narrow down which saint imparticular is calling me, and I have yet to be successful.

Anyone else expierence anything like this? Or have I lost my bananas? :p

Welcome. :) I like bananas, nothing wrong with losing bananas.

If you're getting a distinct presence, perhaps you could simply ask it for a name or a region that it's affiliated with?

I don't know if I've experienced the same thing, but I feel a connection to several saints.  The thing to remember is that many of the saints were gods/goddess from pagan religions that were appropriated by the Christians to lure the pagans to their religion.  I like to think of it as all the same spiritually, regardless of what we call them.  But I like what Laveth said, maybe ask who is calling you :)

Well, have you considered maybe the Lwa of Vodou/Voodoo might be the ones calling? I'm not a practitioner, but I know that many of the Lwa are represented by Catholic saints to "hide" their origins. And plus maybe your "pull" to Kemeticism brought you to Africa, and so from Africa to Vodou? I'm just grasping at straws.

I would try divining -if you practice that- and see what comes up. Maybe there's a reason you feel pulled.
