*** Tap (ADCjava@***.ptsk.mi.freeway.net) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
QueenofHanover. . . .So, tonight, we have a different format
QueenofHanover. . . .as we do things in a new mode
AngelofLove. . . . what are we doing?
QueenofHanover. . . .I will lead a discussion on how we became spiritually aware
QueenofHanover. . . .Then, after we have all shared who wish to, we will probably have a spiritual visitor and then we will have time for ghost stories, and partying,
QueenofHanover. . . .So, let's take a moment to think back on our lives
QueenofHanover. . . .and see if we can remember a time before any spiritual awareness
* pumpkinskin quietly takes a sit in the back row with 7 pumpkin pies
QueenofHanover. . . .We were asked to think tonight about how we moved from either no spiritual awareness to spiritual awareness
QueenofHanover. . . .or
QueenofHanover. . . .how we have come to claim our spiritual awareness and be open about it
QueenofHanover. . . .or the like
*** SHELL (arthmowe@***.lynx.net.au) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
QueenofHanover. . . .time to 'fess up to our own spiritual histories
QueenofHanover. . . .and since I am in the lead-off position, I guess, I am up first
spookylady. . . .to remember a time before we believed...if there was one
QueenofHanover. . . .yep -
QueenofHanover. . . .and what took us through the veil of recognition
QueenofHanover. . . .I always lived in a divided world
QueenofHanover. . . .a world in which the spiritual was there, but it had to share the stage with the empirical
QueenofHanover. . . .I was the one who would lurk around an Ouija board in the dark, but talk science in the light
QueenofHanover. . . .you know what I mean
QueenofHanover. . . .put everything in order, but dream beyond all order
QueenofHanover. . . .sense spirits, especially in nature, but claim to see only a "clockwork world"
QueenofHanover. . . .Plenty of reason to acknowledge the spirits,
QueenofHanover. . . .but no easy way to do it .....
QueenofHanover. . . .fewer questions if I stayed in the "normal" modes
*** eboni7 (eboni7@***.tnt2.charlotte.nc.da.uu.net) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
QueenofHanover. . . .then, when Ericka died, what could I do - let go of that love of my life
QueenofHanover. . . .without some connection?
QueenofHanover. . . .So, I had to finally (after all those decades) be up front about what I knew in my heart and soul
QueenofHanover. . . .so sad, it had to take such a sadness for me to be open to such a joy
QueenofHanover. . . .but that is what it took
QueenofHanover. . . .losing something of ultimate value in order to be able to give up things of dubious value
QueenofHanover. . . .and what I have discovered is
QueenofHanover. . . .that once you drop the veil of pretense,
QueenofHanover. . . .once you open the possibilities
QueenofHanover. . . .they are literally like a blessed pandora's box - for all manner of things flow out, but all good
QueenofHanover. . . .And that's my story - of awakening through pain to openness
QueenofHanover. . . .so, how about some other stories out there?
spookylady. . . .beautiful randy
QueenofHanover. . . .merci
AngelofLove. . . . don't be what you pretend to be, Be what you intend to be.
spookylady. . . .o nice angel
AngelofLove. . . .thanks

QueenofHanover. . . .hi lily
lilygirl. . . .hi queen
lilygirl. . . .cheshirecat.. smile for me...
QueenofHanover. . . .so, cheshire - want to grin and share it
cheshirecat. . . .well queenie, i can't remember a time when i didn't believe in this.
cheshirecat. . . .i always knew there was something beyond this physical world.
cheshirecat. . . .but when i had my NDE that was a turning point,
cheshirecat. . . .that's when i had a chance to feel the love i always sensed was there,
cheshirecat. . . .and while it didn't transform my beliefs,
cheshirecat. . . .it did transform the way i began to treat myself and others.
cheshirecat. . . .it showed me that love was mine and not for anything i did, but just for who i was.
*** QueenofHanover is now known as JosephofBabylon
JosephofBabylon. . . .Can you say more about that?
*** Alisa (ADCjava@***.tnt4.tacoma.wa.da.uu.net) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
cheshirecat. . . .i don't know what more to say
JosephofBabylon. . . .ok - thanks
cheshirecat. . . .ok...
Boo. . . .for me, it took an illness to stop denying what I felt was truth
cheshirecat. . . .i lost my way for awhile,
cheshirecat. . . .there was a time when i forgot who i was and thought i had to be what others wanted me to be,
cheshirecat. . . .my life became twisted around other people's expectations
cheshirecat. . . .and i was very sad and felt alone and disconnected.
Boo. . . .those are the very words I was searching for cheshirecat :)
cheshirecat. . . .:) Boo
cheshirecat. . . .then when i had my NDE it brought it all back to me and i remembered that i was ok and i felt reconnected to the universe and to myself
cheshirecat. . . .that's all
JosephofBabylon. . . .thanks
cheshirecat. . . .yw
JosephofBabylon. . . .that's a lot
JosephofBabylon. . . .hey, Boo, want to say more
Boo. . . .sure
Boo. . . .it was because I allowed my life to become twisted around other people's expectations, that I became ill
Boo. . . .but once I began to recognize that and stop it, then I found myself again and my illness stopped
JosephofBabylon. . . .good for you
*** cari (ADCjava@***.ot.centurytel.net) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
Boo. . . .I feel like I was just off track for 20 years, but I suppose I needed that track at the time
JosephofBabylon. . . .it is not always easy to know when we are on track, and when we are sidetracked
Gerry1. . . .hello every one
cari. . . .hello, finally found you guys!
JosephofBabylon. . . .(to all who are joining - we are sharing stories tonight - of how we opened ourselves to the spiritual in life
*** sun (ADCjava@***.tnt5.det3.da.uu.net) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
Boo-B. . . .mine was easy Joseph, first I hit rock bottom, then landed on fertile soil, then clawed my way back....but I found I'd never really lost it in the first place...
JosephofBabylon. . . .but hear what you just wrote - let go, accepted support, made your own choices - alot going on there
JosephofBabylon. . . .so, who wants to share their story
Tap. . . .Well I can go
JosephofBabylon. . . .OK - good
cheshirecat. . . .great tap
suwan. . . .can't see the dancing!
cheshirecat. . . .:)
Tap. . . .My story begins as a child when I used to lie in bed and know that I was being looked after by God
Tap. . . .I used to feel I had a purpose in life, but as a child I figured it meant I would be helping people in some way.
Tap. . . .It's funny that from age 8-16 I didn't think about spiritual existence much.
Tap. . . .however, at age 17 I began having out of body experiences
Tap. . . .especially after my grandfather died. My grandfather was actually my father since my grandparents adopted me.
Tap. . . .at any rate, I had visitations from my grandfather after he died almost every night.
Tap. . . .He had a need to let my grandmother and myself know that he was still around.
Tap. . . .at first I was a little scared because I had not had such experiences before
Tap. . . .so it was unfamiliar to me
Tap. . . .From that point on I knew when family members and friends were going to die before they died.
Tap. . . .and I to this day have contact with my grandparents and other spirits during out of body experiences. and I know when my loved ones are present.
JosephofBabylon. . . .cool
Tap. . . .I had an interesting experience when my grandmother was close to dying in the hospital.
cari. . . .thats incredible, you are so blessed
Tap. . . .I was sitting at her bedside and a voice I could not hear but could feel told me she was going to die that night
Tap. . . .at midnight.
Tap. . . .the voice also told me to go on and have a good life.
Tap. . . .That night at 11:55 or close to that anyway, my grandmother's heart was coming to a stop.
Tap. . . .she was determined to have died at midnight. That same night just prior to my grandmother dying I had some very close friends drive by the hospital and decided at the last minute to stop in.
JosephofBabylon. . . .this is so amazing and wonderful
cheshirecat. . . .((((((Tap))))))
Tap. . . .One of them said he had a feeling something was happening.
Tap. . . .I felt blessed. although I was soooo sad to lose my grandmother who I was so close to.
Tap. . . .blessed that someone was looking after me from the spiritual world.
Deni. . . .(((((((((((tap)))))))
Nebula1. . . .(((((TAP))))))))
Tap. . . .That's all. Thanks for the opportunity to share this with you.
cari. . . .tap, it sounds like you have MANY spiritual helpers
JosephofBabylon. . . .Thank YOU!
cheshirecat. . . .thank YOU tap
cari. . . .thank you tap
Tap. . . .your welcome
JosephofBabylon. . . .to move from your fear to your acceptance to your understanding - quite a journey
Tap. . . .It has been a positive journey
JosephofBabylon. . . .Right now, we are going to take our break a little early - please, keep on talking -- because we have a spirit visitor joining us
JosephofBabylon. . . .after the break
JosephofBabylon. . . .which will take some prep time for one of us
cheshirecat. . . .Rikkity will be here after the break!
Tap. . . .Will it be Rikkity?
cheshirecat. . . .:)
cheshirecat. . . .ok guys, bbbbbrrrrreeeeeeeaaaaaaaakkkkkkkkk
JosephofBabylon. . . .Tap - I really liked the image of feeling a sound you could not hear (Yep - Ms Rikkity will be here)
Tap. . . .It was the most comforting feeling I have ever had.
JosephofBabylon. . . .I can feel that from here
Tap. . . .Even thought it was close to the loss of my grandmother. The feeling is something I go back to when I need to feel inspired.
JosephofBabylon. . . .it is amazing how deep those feeling tones go, touching us at our core
JosephofBabylon. . . .while the cats away, the mice ....
pumpkinskin. . . .okay cheshirecat
pumpkinskin. . . .the mice is going to get some cheeze
JosephofBabylon. . . .this mouse just had some cheddar
Alisa. . . .I have to go get a costume...brb

Accordionlover. . . .So, while we are on break - any good ghost stories for the evening?
Tap. . . .I just watched a movie on possession.
Accordionlover. . . .how was it - hollywood usually scare stuff?
Tap. . . .I don't like those kinds of movies because I don't like to think about anyone or thing possessing me.
*** skeptic (ADCjava@***.tnt4.tacoma.wa.da.uu.net) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
Tap. . . .It had its moments. Was as frightening as the Exorcist.
Tap. . . .that was the worst or the best of scary movies.
Accordionlover. . . .control is a big issue for us, spiritually, isn't it
Tap. . . .very much so.
Tap. . . .We all like to be in control.
Accordionlover. . . .and possession flies in the face of that
Tap. . . .exactly
Tap. . . .it takes the control away from us.
LittleFloPeep. . . .Do you think "Sixth Sense" got a lot of people thinking?
Gerry1. . . .little flo peep yes i do i quite enjoyed the movie
LittleFloPeep. . . .Did you know the producer / director had a vision about the movie even including the actors.
LittleFloPeep. . . .about a year before it was done, almost as if guided
Tap. . . .I didn't see that yet. but am planning on it.
Accordionlover. . . .I think it has many people talking about things that they had kept hidden before
Accordionlover. . . .and Tap we will keep the story line to ourselves so you can enjoy it
Tap. . . .thank you accordionlover
Tap. . . .I appreciate that.
cari. . . .do you guys actually believe that you can be possessed?
suwan. . . .ahhh I dont' think cari's ever been married!!!
Boo. . . .you can only be possessed if you think you can be possessed
Accordionlover. . . .I don't believe in possession (but I love some of my possessions)
Tap. . . .I don't believe in possession myself.
cari. . . .me neither
Accordionlover. . . .I think it is a word to describe as external to one the inner conflicts many have

Accordionlover. . . .ALL RIGHT CT
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .and tweedle-dee as well, looking very round
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .so hi
Accordionlover. . . .hi
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .this is about words. have you ever wondered
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .why the words of powerful magic spells make no sense...
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .abracadabra, etc. and merlin's "charm of making"?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .you might as well be saying "yada yada boom boom" for all the difference it would make.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .does anyone know why? (excuse me, i have to fix my wig. black roots haha)
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .i think it's on backwards. so hanna, who am i tonight?
Deni. . . .ummmmm..so the person receiving the spell can't "undo" it?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .good deni, but no gold star
*** zee (bayridge1@***.ipt.aol.com) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
LittleFloPeep. . . .because you do not have power over another?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .o so true, flopeep, but not what i was thinking about.
skeptic. . . .emotions behind the words? not words themselves?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .there ya go...and from a skeptic no less!
skeptic. . . .:)
suwan. . . .ah to give the words a carpet to ride on to their destination
suwan. . . .the spell I mean
sharross. . . .maybe they use those words just there to sound COOL ?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .the words are sometimes distractions and what matters is the action that precedes and informs and follows them.
Tap. . . .What counts are actions more than words.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .yes tap and suwan
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .we can get so caught up in visualizing the concrete symbolism of the words that they lose their power to charm and heal and teach.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .that's why daily affirmations are s h i t unless you understand and believe in the intent and action involved.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .just saying the words gets you nowhere.
Tap. . . .agree.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .people like to think their thoughts make things happen,
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .but they only make things happen if there is action and intent and energy focus along with the words.
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .words have no power in themselves, and those who try to make them powerful
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .are like those who try to go through the looking glass
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .by going through the wall.
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .in order to go through the looking glass (have you guessed who i am tonight yet?)
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .you need to remove it from the wall, to remove it from the door,
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .to remove it from what is concrete.
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .it really isn't hard, but when you try to
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .go through the wall, man can that smart.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .we are here, is the message i bring you tonight.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .we are not gone, or on another "side"
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .although it is hard to talk about where we are without saying that
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .because your minds translate everything so concretely.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .we are not on a different side, on a different level,
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .or "up there."
Tap. . . .are you all around
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .we are right here, and as close to you as you are to your keyboard right now.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .all you need to do is look into the glass and not see the wall.
LittleFloPeep. . . .Alice in Wonderland
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .remember the rabbit hole is a tunnel that goes both ways
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .and don't be afraid you won't be able to return.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .when there is no "here" or "there"
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .there is no "returning" or "leaving."
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .do you understand what i'm saying? (yes flopeep :)
Tap. . . .I think so
pumpkinskin. . . .yes
cari. . . .yes
Accordionlover. . . .yep
STAR. . . .for sure
Boo. . . .yes
Accordionlover. . . .the separation is intellectual, not spiritual
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .wonderland is at your doorstep, in your front yard, under your oak tree,
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .and all around you. like alice, all you need to do is shift your focus
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .and your expectations and voila! there you are!
SHELL. . . .oh yes
Gerry1. . . .yes
Deni. . . .and in my hallway
Deni. . . .:)
suwan. . . .reality is an illusion
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .suwan reality is real, but only part of the tunnel...the silver backing on the mirror that makes it a two-way mirror so we see you and you don't see us
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .take off the backing and know it for what it is.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .i will go now. any questions before i do? (yes deni)
Tap. . . .yes
Tap. . . .I have a question
pumpkinskin. . . .yes i do have a question
Accordionlover. . . .(she likes questions!!!!)
STAR. . . .I have a question
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .ok, tap and then star.
STAR. . . .ok
Tap. . . .Rikkity are you and other people's loved ones with us all the time or do you do other things?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .tap, we are always here but not all of us are talkers like i am, ha.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .some of us have other things to focus on and some of you are not very receptive,
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .so we who need to connect in this way try to do it
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .and sometimes we are successful, but most of the time we are not.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .others of us don't attempt to communicate because that is not what we or you need.
Tap. . . .My grandparents communicate with me.
Tap. . . .but sometimes I don't want them to not enjoy their life by having to look after me.
Tap. . . .I have contact with my grandparents during out of body experiences.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .yes, tap. i know.
Tap. . . .thank you, Rikkity
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .tap it's always a 2-way street, and you can't make anyone do what they don't want or need to do. so please do not worry about that, ok.

Elissa- Rikkity. . . .star?
STAR. . . .question
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .yes
STAR. . . .does one take there physical ego into spirit
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .we take the essence of who we are in all our lives, with all the meaning we have learned and remembered,
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .but ego is not something we need here. we
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .do not need protection or safety
STAR. . . .ok
STAR. . . .remembered?
STAR. . . .how is it one forgets
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .forgetting is when you lose sight of what is meaningful, star
STAR. . . .what is meaningful
STAR. . . .what prompts one spirit to want to help those in physical
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .when you are more fully formed and evolved, you naturally connect with us here...
STAR. . . .i see
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .it's a matter of natural spiritual evolution and not a matter of "gifts" or "powers"
STAR. . . .so we are all one
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .so when someone cannot do it, maybe it's just not their time to do it yet.
*** rocky (vskrlb@***.gst.aloha.net) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .we are all one, parts of the One, and more
STAR. . . .the one intellect
pumpkinskin. . . .can it also be that they are growing at their own pace? perhaps, taking the necessary paths needed to get where they need to be?
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .yes, pumpkin. exactly. you guys are sooo smart.
pumpkinskin. . . .:)
cari. . . .your life there, can you talk more about it? please
Elissa- Rikkity. . . .cari, that is something i don't do much of. you would not understand what it's like here, and your focus needs to be on life and not on here.
STAR. . . .what does it mean to be bored with this space
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .when you are bored you cannot see the meaning that is all around you. you don't learn,
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .and you don't even remember that you need to learn.
Elissa-Rikkity. . . . spiritually it's a kind of death.
Tap. . . .So we need to stay focused on what we are doing here?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .yes tap, and know that we are here and there is no need to crash through the wall to get to the other side of the looking glass.
pumpkinskin. . . .what learning does boredom facilitate? can it be a state for avoidance? blocking? or reflection? change?
Elissa-Rikkity. . . .and now i must go because mommy is laughing at my costume and GW is about to roll into the sea because he's so big and round hahaha.
Tap. . . .thank you Rikkity
pumpkinskin. . . .nite my dear sister. much love always Rikkity :) {{{{{{hugs}}}}}}
Accordionlover. . . .Thank you Rikkity (Alice) and CT and GW and all the gang
skeptic. . . .thankyou Rikkity:)

Elvis_lives. . . .hanna who?
Deni. . . .Thanks Elissa!!!
cheshirecat. . . .wow
Tap. . . .thank you, Cheshirecat
Accordionlover. . . .awesome kiddo of ours
cheshirecat. . . .i've been vibrating all day! be back in a few.
Tap. . . .so cheshire, how do you feel after channeling?
pumpkinskin. . . .she is wonderful accordion
Accordionlover. . . .she is
cheshirecat. . . .brb tap
Tap. . . .okay
STAR. . . .pumpkinskin, question on boredom
pumpkinskin. . . .yes star?
STAR. . . .boredom with the ego of life
STAR. . . .can you share on this
Accordionlover. . . .pumpkin - want to share more
STAR. . . .just want to know what you mean
pumpkinskin. . . .lol, okay
STAR. . . .you mention block,
STAR. . . .and other things
cari. . . .good night everyone! thanks for letting me come to your party!
Tap. . . .goodnight cari
Nebula1. . . .nite Cari
pumpkinskin. . . .this was my question "what learning does boredom facilitate? can it be a state for avoidance? blocking? or reflection? change?"
STAR. . . .yes can we explore this
skeptic. . . .good question
pumpkinskin. . . .I guess what I have learnt is that boredom has different meanings in my life
STAR. . . .ok
Accordionlover. . . .Boredom I think IMHO reflects a time when we disconnect from our direction in life, so I am not sure it serves much of a purpose
Tap. . . .boredom would be a catalyst for learning more.
STAR. . . .yes
pumpkinskin. . . .yes I agree that we need to stay on target, focus and eyes on the journey
STAR. . . .moving to another dimension
STAR. . . .boredom with the struggle
Accordionlover. . . .idleness and boredom are not the same thing
Tap. . . .If we are bored we search for something to make one not be bored which means learning something new opening ourselves up to change.
pumpkinskin. . . .but sometimes I have experienced boredom at a time that my mind is processing all that I have learnt.
*** XkuRUx (ADCjava@***.tnt1.dial.ott1.uunet.ca) has joined #SpiritualPersistence
Tap. . . .you never stop learning.
STAR. . . .how about a feeling of apathy
Tap. . . .you never stop processing
pumpkinskin. . . .that is true
Accordionlover. . . .I don't care for apathy
XkuRUx. . . .hi
STAR. . . .no feeling, nothing
pumpkinskin. . . .but sometimes we never slow down enough to allow ourselves to relax, reflect and process
pumpkinskin. . . .so our mind and body can facilitate this in any means possible
STAR. . . .disinterest
XkuRUx. . . .ALright Elvis
Elvis_lives. . . .:)
Tap. . . .where does Elvis live?
pumpkinskin. . . .i believe that in my life, I have had many moments of boredom, but not all of this time have been a disconnection
Accordionlover. . . .we may be using boredom in a different way
zee. . . .i was never bored
zee. . . .always found something to do
skeptic. . . .you may have a different meaning for boredom than others pumpkin
pumpkinskin. . . .some of it has been a boredom which pushes me to sit still for a moment and center, reflect and refocus
Accordionlover. . . .but is action the opposite of boredom?
Tap. . . .I don't think so
Accordionlover. . . .both could be avoidances
Tap. . . .action can take place even if one is bored.
STAR. . . .perhaps it is the middle between the highs and lows
pumpkinskin. . . .by refocusing I have been able to incorporate the new learning with the old and move to higher heights.
skeptic. . . .when I'm bored, I Never really "relax"
pumpkinskin. . . .yes that may be true skeptic
XkuRUx. . . .might be
pumpkinskin. . . .well during my boredom moments, i can experience a blah feeling...that is when i know that i have disconnected and i need to get connected immediately.
Tap. . . .boredom for me is when I want something to do, but can't find that particular something I want to do.
STAR. . . .sounds like depression
skeptic. . . .yes, me too Tap, restless...no focus
pumpkinskin. . . .i have also experienced being bored and connected...a feeling that i need to breathe, sit down but at the same time not wanting to do it...however, my spirit has a way of saying, sit and i listen :)..this is when i know that i need to process and reflect for a moment.
Tap. . . .good word restless.
STAR. . . .restless, it is a sense of restlessness
STAR. . . .on the edge of something new
XkuRUx. . . .u could always sleep. that's interesting n u dont have to plan it LOL
pumpkinskin. . . .well tap, i have experienced that, and to me when I am at that stage, it means that change is coming.
STAR. . . .so change is no doubt coming
