Hi guys! So, I'm wodering if anybody here practices or knows anything about this growing area of spirituality that, for the sake of discussion, I will throw into a box labeled "Spiritualism." As the title so overtly suggests, I want to talk a little bit about different spiritual venues such as Wicca, Shamanism, Paganism (in its numerous and varied forms), modern metaphysics, traditional ors of mysticism, and whatever else is out there. I am fascinated by things like crystals, tarot and runes, dream reading and divination, chakras and energy work, healing through meditation and hypnosis and all of that. But the more I learn, the more there is to learn (as is usually the case). For example, I recently finished crafting a nice cane out of a piece of wood my sister found for me at a lake. It wasnt until I was arranging my crystals in an energy grid that I realized that the same energy was pulsing through this walking stick as well. It struck me that, through shaping, naming, and inscribing it with various meaningful symbols, by ornamenting it with copper wire and a couple of crystals, I had made a pretty powerful tool for magick and energy work (something akin to a magick staff). But now that I have this tool, and another one just a bit longer, I feel I've only scratched the surface of what I could do with them. (I actually had a dream the other night wherein some malevolent spirit had followed me home from a cemetery I drove past, but my cane appeared to me and I used it to banish the entity. I take the dream to be largely symbolic of defeating inner demons and entering a new phase of life.) I also have two wands: one made entirely out of Rhutilated quartz that I use primarily for charging other stones, drawing energy grids and directing energy through the body and the other made of wood, with copper and clear quartz that I don't quite have a particular purpose for yet. I feel the energy in t as well, but I don't know what I could use it for that I don't already accomplish with my other tools. Anyway, I digress. If anyone else is into this sort of thing feel free to comment below. You don't have to know anything about it either. If you have questions too, we can talk about those too.
