My Path Has Begun


Dear YGS family,

I have had quite a few new experiences within this house.

I've grown quite a bit spiritually. I've opened up to new experiences and have found my calling.

I have set up 2 different altars. One for my workings, the other for my ancestors. Both have grown significantly as I've learned and continue to learn about my path.

I've met so many new people, and have become great close friends with a few that I never thought I would have. My life has changed and again will soon.

Which leads me to the experiences. I have caught a voice on a video of mine recording from my cellular device. I was recording a video of a ritual I was conducting. Throughout the entire process I felt a presence with me. Watching and guiding me. I always record my rituals and then write down certain things about them. For whatever reason still unknown to me I said " well hello" and within about 4 seconds later a long drawn out "Hiiiiii" came through.

I didn't know I had caught that voice at the time. Because I was patiently watching over my candles etc as they burned and had put my phone on the charger.

The next morning while taking in the fresh breeze and warm morning sun from the front porch I had remembered that I had recorded and was wanting to do a bit of playback on what I had done.Didn't think or know I had captured a voice on it.

I started to play the video, turned the volume all the way up and listened.

I heard myself and then got the shock of the rest of the week and excitement! I caught something replying back to me.

Just to be clear, I make sure I have protection in place at all times. Wards amulets circles etc.

The next day while I doing some research on some things, I decided because I was in a meditative state I would record on my phone again. The phone was placed on the bed behind me and I was reading at the time. I eventually finished and turned the video off.

The room was completely quiet, the only thing you could hear on the audio was of me turning a page and a voice that sounded like mine chanting something in a language very lightly for the first four seconds of the video. It suddenly stops and then it's the page turning from the book.

Other times while I'm sleeping in the bed I will wake up to hear something going on around my workings altar. I'm not exactly sure what's going on. I've heard shuffling around my bed, nothing new there. And have found one of my crystals on the floor off of my altar.

It's hard for any of my kids to be in the room too long, I've made a sacred space in there, as that's truly the only space in the house I can be left alone to do anything.

I have always been in tune with spirits, whether it was noticing the energy they have, seeing them around or hearing them. But it's as though the volume has turned up and it's getting interesting. I have learned so much within the past couple of years. And am on a continuous learning journey. I can't seem to find the words to explain how I feel now that I have accepted my path. I feel grounded, more leveled, happy.

I know this wasn't exactly exciting or scary. But I was excited to tell you all about this. My journey has begun.

Thank you for reading

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of it, Christianity uses altars, rituals, metaphorical sacrifice, amulets and charms too. It's all semantics. Religions around the world have spent countless amounts of time and energy flinging doom, gloom and the devil at other religions while holding their own ways up as the only path to salvation - when the fact is at their most basic levels, they functionally have more in common than they would ever dare admit.

Just because a thought process is different from our own doesn't make it wrong, crazy or of the devil.

I have an altar in my home and practice rituals as does a neighbor in my building. My nieces split time living with me and she has a child of her own. None of the children have been negatively impacted by the "alternative" religious practices of the adults around them; no more than a child is harmed when taken to church with their parents. On a practical level, most adults with children in the home know of at least one place where they don't want the children to go - say a sewing room, for example where all your tools and cut pieces are laid out "just so" and little hands would doubtless lay ruin to the order in no time - the same goes for a space where the most important things have been "laid out" and put in place metaphysically in addition to carefully arranged altars.

I remember when I was a kid, I could never go into my mom's room when she wasn't in it - it wasn't because there was any sort of a rule against it or ghost in there or even anything non-Christian going on (she's a lapsed Catholic with atheistic leanings), it's just that the space was so very much her own that it just didn't feel right being in there without her.

I'm not sure about the specifics of your beliefs and practices, spiritwaiting, but perhaps you have attracted an entity whose identity could be explained by the teachings of your belief system. A Christian might say demon - someone with more pagan leanings might say a brownie - another might caution that it is a djinn - each with their own reasonings and implications. Without knowing much about your belief system (and I'm not saying you are under any expectation to reveal those beliefs here) it's hard to really say.

Did you get any particular feelings when you heard it scampering about? Did the crystal seem to need "recharging" when you found it on the floor? Did you sense any lingering energy on it?

As yet, the voices haven't come across with anything threatening to say and the activity has been only inquisitive - moreover, you seem to have a good handle on the practices you carry out in your own home and a sense of well-being. Whereas I can't tell you WHAT you may have on your hands, I do get the feeling that you have a good head on your shoulders and are approaching this with the necessary caution and respect.

Wow, pouting okay. Have a click around you'll eventually find why I posted my original comment. Have a nice day!

Yeah, you're right, I just don't get it. I just don't see spiritwaitings story as having to do with mental illness, frenetic behavior, abuse, or child negligence. Honestly, I don't find anything wrong with you having satanic items in your home either - not that it matters, so I guess I just don't get it...

Unless she has already done so, I do think that spiritwaiting should upload video or recording here, I think it would be interesting to see if she caught anything that pertains to this story.

Urgh...LightMight, we have satanic stuff in our home, I'm the least from superstitious you could get on this forum. Amulets, alters all cool with me, I would encourage it...it's everything else about this post, seriously like just urgh. If you don't get it, you don't get it.

I shouldn't comment at this hour.

MrsRamsay, if it quacks like a duck... Go with your gut. To quote Elastica first impressions last and cast shadows on the rest.

I did just now go back and read some of her other stories and saw the native American reference. Also, your stories sound pretty good, I guess this one just sort of hit me wrong (mainly you say the kids don't want to come into your room, which I thought inferred they were afraid).

OK, I stand corrected and will know next time to get the larger picture! Must be that mom-thing kicked in.

I don't feel there's too much concern here. Spiritwaiting has connected Native American descent, there is nothing wrong with using amulets, altars, and anything else with getting in touch with a spiritual side. But this also goes for anyone getting in touch with their ancestral beliefs.

I will join Negative Nancy. Guess you can call me Concerned Karen. Yeah, Karen, haha.
I'm concerned about a mom with children doing "rituals." Period.

My Path, it seems as though your path for now is raising your kids in a healthy, worldly world, and my concern is that you are disconnecting and focussing on your "altars" which, while I certainly appreciate your interest in your ancestry, could at the least take time away from those who need you and at the worst pull you into something you don't know anything about. It sounds as though you've made up your mind to journey around the world, but that can also be construed as a cry for help (from the perspective of a reader). Perhaps you should try and focus more on your life and not intangible and mysterious things? Absolutely no disrespect meant, only concern.

Upon proofing this, I realize I come off as judgmental. But I think when you have children you should put their needs first and I would advise my own kids that, because I love them.

Am I the only person who was concerned when reading this?

Spiritwaiting, so umm well sorry to crash the party but anything that takes a crystal (or anything) from an alter isn't exactly good news, unless I'm missing something... Maybe a detail?

Also you better believe people are going to want you to upload those vids/audio/anything. Ah, yeah... Are you the same person that has a pit bull in a cage? Don't know why that suddenly popped in... So just like don't do that ya know?

There's something disconcerting about this whole thing, the way it's worded reminds me of some kind of mania, sorry to be a negative Nancy. Hope all is well. 😳
