* "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.

What about you? Where are you? :confused:

 
For pretty much the first time in my life I think I'm more or less where I should be, or at least on the way. And I'm actually not scared or feeling lost. The only thing I wish I had was stronger direct interaction with Wepwawet and the other jackals. My experiences are all kind of subtle, composed mostly of feelings, impressions, and the ubiquitous mental 'nudges.' I'm admittedly quite envious of people who have vivid lucid dreams or really blatant visions/interactions where they can see and feel them. I crave to feel their presence in a way which is completely and undeniably real. This isn't to say that I doubt their existance, because enough has happened for me to know there's definitely something going on and that I have this really lovely relationship, I just wish the connection was even stronger and more tangible. I have snippets of barely remembered dreams where Wepwawet and I are holding hands... I want to have that when I'm awake too.

I am in the middle of the Land of Weird Shit Happening.  Seriously.Weird.Shit.

I wanted to quietly hoe onions, paying homage along the way, and instead I've been given a handful of oddness that has to be dealt with and I'm being pushed to deal with it.

Quote from: SatAset;2159
Aset had this to say:

Do not be afraid.  I am here, My child.  Sekhmet is with you in your fear and confusion.  Do not be afraid.  We are all around you.  Breathe and take in the blessings of Shu.  Calm yourself of worries and unfounded fear.  

Sekhmet and I will help you.  Call out to Us and we will be there.  Cleanse yourself with natron, light a candle and We will come.  Now.  

Do not hesitate.  Do let fear cloud your mind.  Do not let fear paralyze you.  

Cleanse yourself of your fear.  Pray to Us as you bathe in the natron water.  You will be renewed.  Your ka will be renewed.  

Come to your shrine.  We will be waiting for you.  Always.  
...


SatAset, this really helps.  Thank you for being the messenger.

Well, I appreciate it.  Actually, I'm tearing up a little.

Is it just me or is there some interesting energy going on with this SIG at the moment?

People are being all authentic and transparent and stuff.  It's kind of cool to see.  Doesn't happen much on the Internet.


It is not just you.  There's something happening here...and all it took was some thought to open the floodgates. :)

Again, this stuff happens rarely.  People who talk about this stuff are usually talking about some of the few intense experiences that turned their life around.  Sometimes the Gods do that to get our attention.  Then they take a step back and let us handle things ourselves.  

I typically don't get strong experiences or any kind of "ritual buzz".  There's a subtle, peaceful feeling but nothing mind-blowing.

If I lived there all the time, I'd probably be unable to focus or get any work done.  

Mysticism doesn't pay the bills.

About the same here. Nothing coherent. Weird little "kitty treats" now and then. And the "I sent you the moose, what more do you want? Figure it out" feeling.

I suppose in some ways this thread points out that it's not necessarily a huge disadvantage to be in a weak-contact situation. I can go ticking along making daily offerings and requests without feeling like I'm being ignored any more than usual. I could probably serve an open icon, but can't narrow down "who" beyond a certain point.

That about sums it up for me, too.  I was spoken to (well, laughed at), once, in an "Over here, idiot!  This is where you belong!" way.  Since then, I've been home.  No requests, orders, or contact of any sort, really, beyond nice things dropping into my life now and then.  I'm just here, trying to do honor to the gods and live my life accordingly.

I figure I would definitely be honoring Set. He is top dog (and don't you forget it). But I think some part of me would always feel bad that I'm not as devoted to the other gods in my life (Aset, Asar, Hatmehyt). Perhaps this has been a roadblock for me as well.

Doesn't mean it isn't still high on my wishlist. ;) I'm kind of in a unique position though where a high level of mysticism wouldn't really cause any great disruption to my life.

I feel bad that I don't spend as much time with Djehuty, Sekhmet, Nut and other Gods who are important to me.   If I only have time for one ritual a day, it's for Ausir.  That means sacrificing some quality time with other Netjeru.

You can, of course, set a schedule for "dates" with other Gods.  Set aside time on a to give them a special offering and do a meditation.  Maybe just 15 minutes, or so.   Do that for your other Gods weekly, or maybe every couple of weeks.  That way they will know they aren't forgotten.  

I have found that celebrating festival days keeps my spirituality well-rounded.  I'm glad my temple does rituals to a different God each month (more or less).  It keeps me from getting tunnel vision :)

The recon-ish side of things is pretty simple, actually.  I'd be happy if I could just play there, do research, write my book, and do my stuff without additional hassle.

I swear at Him a lot.

 
I think I would, too. And you know, when I'm on speaking terms with Le Lady o' Fire, I do a lot of swearing at her, too. ;)

You could contact Sekhmet. She's... pretty... intense. I think I once described our constant-contact relationship as constantly walking into a brick wall. I mean, it's nothing that I don't mind (or need) at times, but it does get pretty deflating to have it happen frequently. And you know, hurts after a while. However, going from that intense in-your-face cursing-and-yelling-at-each-other to complete silence? I miss the brick wall times we had together. Sigh.

And you know, mysticism should totally pay the bills. Or, at least, pretend to pay the bills. :p
