* "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.

BTW, what's a goblin market?

I think he's referring to Pike Place Market, which is a sort of decades-old rambling multi-floor waterfront marketplace of little stalls and shops and hawkers and florists and tables full of vendors some of whom sort of vanish while your back is turned. It's touristy, but it also feels like those goblin markets in fantasy novels, like you could find anything there, if you were there at the right time and paid the right kind of attention. I once got a beautiful obsidian-and-bone ritual knife there from a mysterious little old man whose stall was empty when I came back that way a few minutes later.

Yeah. I don't know how else to describe the place; it's obviously a tourist trap, but it's also more than that, and very much has its own energy. So that's likely a factor here as well.

So you're saying it might also be a tsuris trap?

If your practice requires you to be open to spiritual energy, how do you fix that? And what are the best ways to do so without causing major disruption?

Is it possible that someone else in the complex is actively doing something that's blocking the energies from getting in?

It's certainly possible. I'm hoping that's not the case, though, since I have no way to find out who it is and how to talk to them about it if that is what's going on.

Not the kind of place where you can hang a sign in the laundry room about turning down your wards at night, eh? XD
