First I am sorry for not being on here for a few days, but I find it necessary to change the way I talk to people on here, because I have caused grave offence to one on here and came across as trying to force her to follow my way. It was suggested that some who do not understand or know me that well may read it differently to how it was meant, and this caused the offence.

Morrigan, My Dark Queen told me to come on here in the first place, and I have been writing on my Pages the whole of my Path that it is now. I will reiterate once again here and now. I am Shaman, I Work alone, for the most part. I have no Sect, Branch, Temple, Order, Grove, or Coven. I am alone in my Path, Out of 7 billion people on this world, My Path is unique, Only I follow My Gods and the Spirits How I do. I do not need nor want people following me on my Path, because it is MY Path, not theirs, Go find your own way. Take from me what you will, leave what you do not need, learn all you can from everyone.

I am still learning from people like ElfKat and Gypsy Lizardkilt and others, but I am very interested in learning from all, finding out about their Path and or Faith. Then I can talk with understanding to them, offer advice and gain advice from them, to give and receive help from them. I am not after Changing the World to my world, I am not Wicca, Druid, Christian. It is not my way to demand others to follow my lead. I will offer advice and my knowledge to almost anyone. What they do is their business after that. I do not care who you Pray to, Jesus, Satan or the Tooth Fairy or even Captain Jack Sparrow, or all four. It makes no difference to me but I like to understand so I can talk. I have sent people to others on here because I felt that those people would be better able to help more than I can. But I still talk to those has I may still be of some use.

Point in case, Jinkx, my 25 year old step-daughter, asked me many years ago to teach her, I would not. Years later she worshipped Gaia, Mother Earth, and did so for many years, with me giving her advice as needed. A Little while ago The Dark Queen Calieach (Spelling) who I found out was another aspect of Morrigan Called her and is working with her. Again I gave advice and guidance including how to do spells and prayers, Jinkx took my advice and changed it to suit her, and it works for her, thus her way. Jinkx is not Shaman, that would be wrong for her at this time, and when talking about the Gods we both use Mother and Dark Queen has reference points, just so we know who we are talking about. If I was Powermad, I would have melded Jinkx to my way of doing things, which would suit her ill, I told her how I do things and offer suggestions, has a Teacher should, but it has to be her choices, her way.

Point in case 2 Hil, my wife, Worships Thor, Calypso, Ganesh, Also a general Aspect of Mother Earth. Her choice. She does things when she wants to, who she wants to. If she asks my advice, I give it, simple as that. ‘tis her way, not mine. She was praying to Thor and Ganesh a long time before I turned up, but Calypso only after she saw Jack Sparrow, she thought that She would be a great Sea and Storm Goddess to worship, being half Caribbean herself.

Writing
This is my blog, if you do not like it then read someone else’s, simple. For the most part I write on others post what I think, for the most part, sometimes I am on automatic, Guidance methinks, but it needed saying so I said it. I always read a post through twice, just so that I understand what has been written, unless I know that person as well as I can do on here. Sometimes I can be blunt but I try to be correct about it, never abusive, that is just poor manners to my mind. If I do not understand then I ask until I do understand. But only if I get answers to the questions I have asked.

Sometimes I will write She or He or The Gods or Them. The capital is me showing the upmost respect to the one I am talking about. Morrigan is my Dark Queen of Death, War and Prophesy. But if Someone else has their own Dark Queen version then I will use my version has a point of reference. Same as with Danu, my Creator Mother Earth, Gaia is another example but I will use Mother Creator or just Mother has the point of reference. I am giving full Honour and respect to whatever aspect or Name that you use when I do this.

THIS IS JUST MY WAY. Until I really know your God how you believe in them I do this. Also I have been corrected a few times on here and elsewhere when I say Gods or God, I have been corrected by being told “Goddess actually”. I know, I am well aware of that, with thanks.

Has habit I do point out to others that they do have a choice, which only they can make if they are unhappy within their path, which they can make with Guidance from above. There are 2 choices, Go it alone or group. A Witch is a Witch whether they be alone or in a coven.

Changes
So on my blog I will write how the fuck I want to, again, if you do not like it, go elsewhere. But from now onwards when I reply on a post I will read through twice still but I will not let others influence what I am typing. And instead of She, He, God/ess or a Name or Aspect I will use the term “All that are Holy” or something very similar, Unless I know you and yours as well as I can without believing in them. Both of these may cut down on my reply but if it will stop anymore people from getting grave offence from me, this is what I will do. I am already second guessing what I want to write, so I do not write at all, just in-case it causes offence to them, or it comes across as me trying to convert the world. Bare with me, I will get there in the end.

Midnight, after a day’s thinking and asking for Guidance from Them then She told me by showing me a little of the vision, almost dropped the cigarette I was smoking. By all accounts Morrigan told me about this, (see Loss below – regarding my vision) and it seems that GL’s guidance regarding the vision was spot on again. Thank you again GL, and my thanks to Kuan Yin has well. There you go, still learning, and the Gods have not finished with me yet, maybe a little Fire to lose will not be a bad thing for me. Stop being so forthright and bloody-minded. Stubborn old Goat I am.

Give you a vision/dream, piss someone off to help you learn the lesson, remind you of the vision, Ah, now realisation dawns on you, still learning, I have not finished with you yet. There is still work to be done, I am around, always. Remember that. You are not going anywhere yet.

So another day thinking all this over. Having had the Guidance last night and now knowing what They are doing with me, do I change has I outlined above, or do I keep on doing what I am doing, at the risk of pissing off others by coming across as trying to convert everyone to my Path.

But I do feel that a little South Energy could be cut, but it is who I am, my life has made me this way, moulded me this way, so we shall see. Also depends on what Morrigan has in store for me in the near future. Still the Rookie. But I got rid of most of my hate and anger before I came on here, there was nothing I could have done at that time, it happened, move on. I have done that, so now what?
Horses to water
You can lead a horse to water but you can not make it drink, so? And?
Knowledge
Whose?
Mine.

But if I change drastically will I piss of the Gods, not that I have not already done that in the past. But now our Working and relationship is different, more even, in their favour methinks. I can say no, but now I understand that sometimes what they have to say may have a very important message to someone, and maybe not the one I am speaking to, but someone who reads what was written. But is that an excuse I could use, am I just trying to validate my way to bully others?

To be honest I have been Working with my Dark Queen since I was 24, I am now 43 ½, so almost 20 years. I was working with her energy before I really understood Her Energy, I was a bad boy, but justified none the less, and apart from Mother Danu, all the others only since the last few years.

Different names same aspect
So the same basic Energy, however we call you then?
Yes
So why not just talk to them yourself, has you do with me?
Because
That is no answer, they do not like it.
Laugh
So you are just using me.
Yes

Morrigan is right, still the rookie, still learning. Smiling to myself here, bloody fool I am. This is why Kaskai my Mother Cougar came to me all that time ago, that is why I called myself Shaman and not Druid or Bard or Warrior or Priest. I am a messenger, nothing more or less, not a warrior, leader, or follower. Cougar channels messages from the divine to the mortal, And Shaman does much the same, telling the tribe messages from the Spirit world. So understanding does dawn with a major headache from Her, thank you.

Sometimes the messenger is attacked, thus he needs to fight. And sometimes the messenger is shot, as in the old saying, “don’t shoot the messenger” which is what happened to start all this, so has the lesson been learned by me? Hell yes, well and truly. So what do I do now, keep things the same for the most part, just be more thoughtful to others has I write. They may not understand me as others do. And dodge the arrows and bullets, chuckling to myself here again.

No you teach and guide
But is that just…
Yes
Being Shaman

  1. You are more than welcome, and I know Kuan Yin would say the same; it’s her way. One of the things that drew me to her first, when I was in a severe crisis of faith after my mom’s death, was that she truly doesn’t care if someone’s a follower of hers, before or after — if someone asks for help, she helps. And that definitely includes someone who does follow her asking for assistance in helping another.

    And you do know you’ve been a great help to me, right? You have, and I thank you.

    We are messengers, when you get down to the heart of shamanic work. I’m on the road to being a strange and specific kind of messenger, but it’s communication all the same. We carry the messages from the spirits to people, but we also carry them from people to spirits. I don’t think it would be outlandish to call shamanic healing a message to illness spirits to back off, and to soul fragments to come home.

    • Thank you again GL. but to be honest I had not realized I had helped you, but sometimes I am slow on the uptake sometimes, but I am glad I have.

      You are, of course, right about this, it just got lost on me and I do not think it is outlandish at all, not to a Shaman anyway. But I do have an open mind, where someone with a closed mind would not believe anything else. I would say that you are a specialist, rather than strange, and with the various Energies that you are gathering around you, and that which you already had from Kuan Yin. Well, it is just top cool. You can help where others may not have the energy, like with Kitty and Marten and friends.

  2. And it seems that it is not so much Fire I need to get rid of, but Water to add (to temper my steel and blade).

    • I’ve spent a lot of my free time (what free time?) sitting there telling myself all this can’t be happening, I must be nuts to think it can. You’ve been a force for reminding me that it is happening, doubts be damned, which keeps me from flipping the switch on my usual response to severe doubts: running like hell.

      I’m pretty sure I’m strange. That’s it! I specialize in strange. Should I ever have a call to print up business cards, that goes on them. 🙂

      For some reason, it’s easier to see balancing as removing things. It’s easy to forget, I think, that adding balances just as well as subtracting — better, depending on the situation. We need some more rational and scientific energy in the mix, so we’re adding it rather than subtracting the irrational and mystical. Good thing for me, too, since the irrational and mystical is me. 🙂
