1  Healing / Welcome to the Healing place! / request for healing on: December 08, 2003, 01:07:27
Hello All,

My cousin Linda is living with brain cancer.  She has had a tumer removed, and has recently begun to experience seizures again.  Her recent brain scans show water and spots - spread of the cancer. She is in her early 50's, has a husband, (Terry), grown children, grandchildren, and lives in Minnesota USA.  

I would like to have anyone who is willing, to join with me in prayer, and in sending healing, compassion, support, comfort and love to Linda and her family in this very difficult time in their lives.

I deeply appreciate and am grateful for efforts made by people here at Astralpulse to respond with compassion and kindness to so many who desperately need it.  Thank you all.

2  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / dark night of the soul on: September 23, 2003, 01:54:52
Hi All -

I've got a general question to pose to anyone out there who would like to speak to it...

Robert has written in the past about his experience of a "dark night of the soul" I think is how he put it; and, has talked about or wondered philosophically about when it is that all the signs are pointing in the wrong direction, that maybe that means you're on the right path...  at least that is how I took his meaning... and how the negative experiences in life are proportionate to the amount of strength we need to develop...

For any and all who have been through the dark night of the soul, if/when everything seems to be opposed to you by design, in small and large, even horrific ways - how did you get through it?  Some might say tenacity, some might say support of friends and family, some might say a row of shots of whiskey - but I'm talking about the lonely, abandoned moments - the ones in the wee hours when I'm sure that God doesn't give a damn...  

Anyone have prayers to share - for healing, for guidance, for breaking out of old habits?  For balance, for defense, for strength?  I've got some but they've been loved to death like an antique teddy bear - maybe if I can't get out of this right now I might as well distract myself with trying something a bit new... and shamelessly fish around for advice and commiseration...

3  Healing / Welcome to the Healing place! / A Family In Terrible Need on: January 08, 2003, 03:32:49
This is hard to write - because I can't get my words to express my feeling here.

 I learned yesterday that my brother-in-law attempted suicide last Sunday.  He shot himself in the stomach and he's in critical condition.  He is very close to death.  He and my sister-in-law have four children and she does not have a job, has few skills.  I guess what I would like is prayers and healing for my family - for Jimmy - healing for his heart, his soul, his mind, his body - but if he passes to have his way eased.    For Trisha his wife - healing, comfort and strength for what lies ahead, and for my neices and nephews - the same - but love for them all more than anything.

The last time I visited they were all so beautiful together - I could feel love and happiness - thier house was alive with rambunctious activity.
 
My neices and nephews are:  Megan who is 12 I think, James 10, Jeremy 7, and Maddy 4 1/2.  
 
I only have a two-year old picture of the kids, but I can't get my copier/scanner to work right now - I would like to post it when I can.
 
Thank you everyone for everything that you have done for others, and all that you do - they live in Tennessee USA.

4  Healing / Welcome to the Healing place! / for a friend on: December 16, 2002, 18:52:10
Hi All,

I have a friend - her name is Jolene - who is going through some very difficult health problems.

She had her gall bladder removed and was told by her doctor that her liver would take on its functions...  this has not happened.

What is happening is that her liver is shutting down - her liver enzime levels are escalating, making her sick, and in the long run, very likely making her a candidate for a liver transplant if the situation cannot be corrected.

Jolene is a young lady of 20 who is just starting out her life.  She is keeping a positive attitude so far - she has a serenity about her about all this which to me, speaks to her character - I can't tell you how truly wonderful she is...

If we can keep her in our thoughts and prayers and send some healing energy her way she would be grateful.

She lives in Spokane Washington.

 
5  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Motes in my eyes.... on: October 04, 2002, 13:55:35
Hi all -

I don't know that this would be the right place to ask this question - (there's been a few topics in this area re seeing stars and such) - in any event, I was wondering if anyone might like to share some ideas as to what this might be:

For some time now - many months - there have been something flashing "in my eye"... I can see a dark orb shape appear and dissapear in a split second's time - seemingly in both my eyes - most often the left eye - and they flash in the same spot each occurance.  It has the speed of a camera flash.  It is most definitely a dark round spot appearing to me to be about 2 mm in size.

I've had my eyes checked recently - theyre perfectly healthy besides some nearsightedness.  I described this to the eye doctor - as well as another seeming "optical effect" I experienced - an aura-like cascading shower of crackling white sparks - he did a very thorough exam and  said he didn't see anything - that there is no evidence of disease - and suggested I might be experiencing painless migranes due to stress.  

Painless migraines?

Anyone ever experience something like the dark spots? Just to clarify - they are not floating around the room, nor do they seem to occur around my body, directly in front of my eye or anything like that - they seem to be in my eye, and they behave very much like a camera flash.

The biblical analogy of having a mote in one's eye does come to mind - thoughts?

Thanks!

Hi There -

I am reseaching the thermal properties of electromagnetic systems - trying to figure out what the effects of heat and cold are on such systems, with a view toward understanding a particular dream I had.

I've come across quite a bit of specialized information that is so technical that I am lost...

Anyone know anything in this particular area or know of a resource that could be aptly titled thermal properties of electromagnetic systems for dummies?

Thanks!

7  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Any electrical engineers out there? on: August 24, 2002, 18:43:29
Hi all -

I've got a question that I don't even know the boundaries of in order to ask it correctly but here goes -

The human body is electrical.... I wonder about the energetic relationship between the various aspects of the energy body and the physical body, starting with physical laws  - (power, intensity, electromotive force and resistance..... Ohms law)... I figure that the condition of electrical conductance (correct terminology is what?) in the physical body will have a relationship with the capacity of the energy body.....

any thoughts folks?

Hi All

I'm doing a little bit of market research about a subject I know nothing about, and was wondering if anyone here could help me by answering some questions?

For those who use crystals -

Which crystals are used, and for each, to what particular purpose?

Which crystals are your favorite?

Do you prefer polished stones or unfinished?

What benefits are there to using crystals?

What do you look for in a crystal before buying it?

Thanks to anyone who answers - your input is much appreciated

10  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / significance of green eyes and other odd things on: March 02, 2002, 23:36:00
Hi All,

I was wondering if this sounds familiar to anyone...

I've had several oobe experiences wherein I would look at my family members while they were sleeping (my husband and my children); or, have run into something that for example looked like my husband (but) while they look the same, they have consistantly had green eyes - not human eyes though... the irises are oval, or there have been no irises.  I'll give you some examples -

In one oobe expereince I went into my son's room to find him asleep - I shake him gently and he turns over and opens his eyes - at first they're normal, and then it looks like a nicitating membrane opens and underneith the eyes are as I described - emerald green (they are physically blue grey).

In another experience, I'm floating above my husband, and reach down to "wake" him - he opens his eyes and there is that third eyelid and those green eyes with oval irises like  a cat...

In another, (I'm really eager for opinions about this) I'm floating about my house and want to go outside - I'm in my foyer and my "husband"   suddenly is behind me - his eyes are flat green, no whites, no irises... (more to the experience - quite an odd one that was).

Also, I'm wondering if anyone has ever encountered glowing green objects while oobeing...  some of the things in my real time house glow green (again the green)?

Any thoughts?  Familiar?  Or is this perhaps my own individual slant on things?

Thanks,

Kristen

 
11  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / auric site or something else? on: February 16, 2002, 16:31:35
Hi All,

Recently I had a weird experience that I'm not sure how to describe...

I was at work, standing talking on the phone when I felt a wave of pressure, heard crackling - like crunching cellophane - and saw a halo of bright white zinging dots form around me...  I was surrounded by them - I can feel and hear and see "it" - it lasted for a few seconds then went away.

The bright white dots I've seen before, but the pressure and the crackling sound is new.  I've had a discussion about this before on the forum some time ago and came away with the ideas that the dots may be part of my aura, may be a sign of a spirit entity, may be air sylphs, may be prana...

For quite some time now I've been seeing the zinging light dots here and there in my periphery every so often, but with no accompanying sensation or sound.  This was an intense concentrated event.... an acute manifestation of a crackling pressure field of white zinging dots... while fully awake, and I wasn't seeing it in periphery (?)

What thoughts does anyone have for me?

And another thing...  increasingly I've been experiencing what feels like oscillating - not having meditated or having done any energy work, but just being wide awake working on the computer or something and I start to feel oscillations - my body moves with it... my husband commented on it too... he said - you feel like you're vibrating - now, is this possibly kiras?  Or what?

Again, any thoughts would be appreciated!

Kristen

Robert wrote way back when that: "Kundalini needs to be developed. It is energy dependent, just like the OBE or Vision Screen states."

What is a vision screen state?  Is it just like it sounds - a screen superimposed over the field of vision during an altered state that shows a view of something?

13  Psychic and Paranormal / Welcome to Psychic and Paranormal! / Unusual experiances/no info on: May 29, 2004, 17:57:17
Hi Angleburst,

I have experienced things very similar to what you're describing - movement up and down, side-to-side, pressure at various points on my body and have experienced incredible pain in my womb - once bad enough to make me scream and most often just extremely painful - that went on for over 6 months, started around the same time each month - about the 11th, and lasted for about a week. I went to the doctor and I have small fibroids... but that sort of pain I experienced is not normal for fibroids.  It was overwhelming - like labor without medication, and the pain stopped abruptly at the entrance to the emergency room door like it never happened.  Maybe it was a warning for me to go to the doctor, maybe not.  The movement and pressure have been continuous for several years.  There's something with me at all times. I've gotten used to the movement and pressure, and actually, there is a pattern and meaning to it relating to oncoming situations that can challenge my emotional balance.

I don't know exactly what it is or why its happening - but it did come on when I began to seriously pursue a spiritual path and began energy work.  I think that sometimes simple intellectual pursuit alone can trigger other levels of awareness and attention, depending on a person's sensitivity.  Add emotional intensity to that and what is experienced may likely increase.  The physical sensation of up and down movement and paralysis could very well be a number of things and I can only guess.  It sounds like the energy movement experienced during energy work or the circulation of light.  I can only guess about your blackout as well - if you practice hermetic or kabbalistic rites, you might want to consider finding a valid mystery school for mentoring.  You have quite a library - have you read Fortune's Psychic Self Denfense?

Hello,

I just wanted to post that my cousin Linda slipped into a coma, and then passed on last week.  I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.  

One of her last wishes, and one of the wishes that her family expressed, was that donations be made to Wings of Mercy - which paid for transportation for her and her husband to the Mayo clinic in the course of her treatment.  If anyone is interested in finding out more about, or would be willing and able to support this very worthwhile non-profit organization here's a link to their site:

Hey folks...

Linda is a real person with a real terminal disease.  I am so grateful that one person has responded.  On the other hand, I am truly despondent that she is the only one besides Nita.
It would be gratifying to know that more than a few people are interested in truly helping others who are going through the process of living with disease and death.  I had thought better.

Everyone dies folks.  It is a lonely thing.  Is there only one respondant because only one person who read this post really cares?  Or is it that out of the readers, there is only one person who understands?



17  Healing / Welcome to the Healing place! / request for healing on: December 30, 2003, 02:27:56
Hello all -

Recently, I learned that Linda likely has about 12 to 18 months to live.  My hope is that she can be reached out to with thoughts of love, peace, and comfort, with thoughts that she feel as little pain as possible, that she be able to recieve thoughtful, compassionate, dignified, and loving support - for her family too.

Thank you

Hi Skymageinfinity -

I came upon this thread, and gotta tell you, you definitely are not alone.  I have some thoughts and some advice from my perspective.  Maybe it'll be useful, maybe not - but I am inspired to give it a try.

I just scanned through the posts so may be repeating others here and there - but my personal take on your question is that it sounds to me (and tell me if I'm on the right track here by all means) that you're longing for connection to what I would call loving presence of the creator - God the father as it were - or however you might characterize and personalize such a concept; and, a soul mate.

The world is a hostile place, and human beings are lonely and alone in it. If I were to put a name to your thread, I would call it "existential angst." We are alone, and we seek for connection to that which is greater than us, directly by seeking God, or the Source, or the (some name here).  To me, a soul mate is the personification in the concrete world of a piece of God that interacts with us where we are - spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically.  

Longing for belonging, connection, comfort, love, safety in trust and all that neat stuff - in experiencing spirituality and having it in the mundane in the form of a loving other/mate/community is what I'm hearing you talk about.

We are all alone, but not.  Every one of us seeking with different levels of awareness - some folks find it, for a short time, for a long time - I had it once, and am looking for it again.  When our needs are met on a certain level, we grow, and that level stops sufficing unless it can change with us.  We start another climb up a steep slope of growth, until we find another level - and on and on again until we leave this world.  Sounds to me that you are on a spiritual developmental path, that you have opened yourself up to that possibility - good for you.

It takes time, but don't give up - connection to/relationship with loving presence in the universe is possible. Its not necessarily constant though. I've felt it and I'm not anywhere near complete as some respondents would have us believe that we might need to be to "deserve" a connection.  No person is ever totally and permenantly centered and aware of who it is that they are and what it is that they want, whether they are 21, 37, or 68, or 100.  If someone is sure of who they are and what they want - and that is constant for a significant piece of time, then maybe they are less than human, or more than human, or maybe they are being dishonest with themselves or others, or, maybe they lack understanding, or they are sufficiently underdeveloped to be aware of the phenomenological complexity of consciousness and living.  It takes a certain combination of emotional intelligence, temperament, trait, motivation, personality characteristics... etc and so on and so forth, to participate in angst consciously, honestly, in a meaningful way, without self-deception and self-distraction, with knowledge of how we may be "blind," or at least with awareness of that possibility - being humble enough to admit it at least to ourselves. (IN MY OPINION)

What I think the key is, is having a level of comfort with ambiguity, with not knowing fully, but having a level of faith, and geniunely asking and actively seeking, with pure emotion, for that relationship - that connection.  It takes courage and sustained energy to be geniune and actively seek, it takes courage and sustained energy to be willing to feel and experience geniunely the sorrow and suffering so that one can continue to seek for what one is seeking in a conscious way.

So what to do?  That geniuneness and intesity of emotion is important - want connection with all your heart and soul.  Wait until you feel that desire for loving connection with acute clarity - prepare for acutely feeling its absence - because things are defined by their absence, and then when alone and focused in that - ask in prayer - or whatever magical ritual you use.  Keep doing it.  And have faith.  Use your angst.  And, periodically and systemically throughout, give yourself a break from the effort and just enjoy good things that life has to bring you.  We all need a break and to go easy and just be - that's about balancing effort and taking care of yourself.

By the way - like I said before - connection/being in relationship to source/to love is a process that has its low and high points.  It takes practice and understanding of the process to balance the extremes.

I hope this helps - this all from a fellow seeker - and is all IMO.

Kristen

P.S.  Arrogance, unfeeling, and intolerance demonstrated consistantly without regard for context or purpose are definitely not character atributes of a person I would want to take spiritual advice from. If we would take advice from someone, let that person demonstrate a working and geniune understanding of Humility and being for others - let them at least demonstrate respect for the human spirit, and a lack of need for unecessary power differentials.

I've been through a lot of things - tragic crisis more than once - but I've never had the core of my being challenged like its being challenged now with every step or move that I make in any direction... its amazing how purposeful the negative dynamics are.

I'll check out that literature and take the words to heart... and Spirit k9 - my heart goes out to you and your son.  I've got a boy and a girl - a young man and woman I should say - and have some experience with mother's worst nightmares.  The strength of your love in the face of such pain and potential loss is humbling.

thanks again,

22  Healing / Welcome to Healing discussions! / Acne - healing ideas? on: July 11, 2003, 01:41:20
Hi All -

The best way I've found of de-toxing your skin is to exersize vigorously.  Work up a good sweat for 20 minutes a day and drink lots of water while doing it.  If you have access to a steam room or sauna that can also be helpful.  All of the above will clear out the gunk accumulating in your pores.  Make sure you're hydrated all around anyway.  Also, green tea is good for the skin - on top of a balanced diet.  Supplimenting with vitamins specially formulated for skin hair and nails is also useful.  Then, use over-the-counter alpha hydroxy acids, or, their less acidic cousins to increase the dead cell turn-over rate of your skin.  Make sure the moisturizer used with an alpha hydroxy is correct for your skin type.  For girls - beware of using cover-up.  The only thing that does is make flare-ups worse, and emphasizes them aesthetically.

Clearing yourself out energetically - excersize is part of this but it might be worth a try to clear yourself with your breath.  You can do a relaxation breath pattern:  breath in 1,2,3,4.  Hold 1,2,3,4... breath out 1,2,3,4 and so on, while circulating the breath up your back, holding, down your front, holding, up your left side, holding, down your right side, holding.  And then, take a big huge deep breath - and force the air down to your toes - all the while forcing it out of your target area too - your face for example, or your back - depending on where the offending blemishes have taken up residence.

Eat healthy, drink lots of water, take some targeted vitamins, use alpha hydroxy or a like product (I forgot exfoliation) and exersize and use cleansing breaths with meditation breaths.

my 2 cents

~Kristen
23  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / God and GoddessNames on: July 04, 2003, 15:58:21
Hi All -

Some theological texts, and kabbalistic doctrine, speak to the concept of God's creation as existing for the purpose that God may know himself - or - that life/matter are created in the image of God, and that he knows himself through his creation whether this was an intent or not.  And, further that, names cause identity, cause existance - thus the metaphor that is not so much a metaphor: Adam named the plants and animals - that without the names of God, the permutations of God as recognized and understood by the human imagination would not be returned in their purified state to Him.

What I'm saying is that in MHO, God "needs" his creation as much as we need our Creator... we are part of Him - He is part of us.  He needs his human foundation - his kingdom.  

note to reader - all views expressed in this post are soley an expression of part of the writers faith and belief as it is currently understood by her, and are not intended to be a statement that her reality is the only one; but instead, is an attempt to share ideas with people. Have a great day!

Have you read Dion Fortune's Mystical Qabalah and Israel Regardie's Tree of Life or Garden of Pomegranates?  I recommend them all... actually anything by these two authors are classic and important additions to a magickal library alongside Franz Bardon.

take care,
