Here is a picture of two silver buckets. I originally planned to post this photo tomorrow but I am in bed by 20:59 so I thought why not. I’ve taken a bath in the morning before, also in the afternoon. The evening is my usual time to have one. I have never taken a bath late at night or two baths in one day though. I have never known anyone to take two baths in one day.

Sounds familiar. The ones here, saw me put one of their brothers in the green bin. Now they alert me to when one died and where the body is. They are insistent, that they now be placed in the green bin. They follow me to the bin, saying their goodbyes, I say mine. When I close the lid they become silent. Then they beat me to the front of the house. Perching quietly now, they grieve.

Huh?
Death is a real and necessary part of life. Perhaps a sacred part of life...? Think it through.
And death, and any other kind of loss, being a part of life is precisely why we do grieve.

Can you conceive of this changing?

I agree with your statement, except I'm adding the caveat, "For NOW, under CURRENT Circumstances beyond our control...."

It doesn't FEEL right or natural to me, and I'm not the only one. The Gnostics, for example, based their opinion on why death isn't real and natural on an evil force they called "the Demiurge", which is preventing us from seeing the TRUE nature of existence.

Is war a real and necessary part of life? Looking at history and current events, one could postulate that it's "just Human nature", and always has been and will be.

Key word, "Presently". Leaves the door open to a difference in the future.

Btw, "Saturnine" means "gloomy".

Yes, first we have to heal the collective shadow. An example that came to mind was the George Floyd murder - the racial intolerance that the cop showed to him was a reflection of the collective shadow. The healing of it happened with the collective expression of outrage in the form of mass protests as well as the lesson it taught us as a society.

They seem kind of small to take a bath in! :lol:

Unless they're bigger than they look? :unsure:

My father rarely bathed, but in the summer he would regularly shower 2 or more times in a day. He was a person that sweated a lot in the heat.

A shower over a bath seems to be the popular choice for most people. Put it this way, I don’t think many people have gone for a bath more than two times in one day. I am more partial to a bath. Don’t get me wrong, I see the merit in having a shower over the bath but then I have always been one to walk on the wild side of life.

It is 10:19 on Sunday morning. I have just finished watching this video about the manufacturing full process of an aluminium bucket. I cannot believe what happens at 5mins2secs! For the rest of the day I will be making 3 lots of different soups and then freezing them. I am usually done by 5pm.

What if ghost’s are people that don’t know they’re dead, except for the fact no one is speaking or looking at them? It sounds lonely; a psychic would be a rare friend - most people who feel any sort of psychic energy automatically clamp up and shut it down, that would be painful if you were a lonely ghost and saw a door of opportunity to speak to someone open and then be shut. Why do ghosts exist, why can’t they fully leave? Are they too attached and unable to let go, can someone help them? They need healing and to be listened to.
From my experience, it’s not safe to open oneself up to ~that realm. It can be more challenging from this side to discern whether what’s coming through from the other side means good or harm. Communicating or opening up to the other side is basically opening the door to your body, mind, and astral. If you make a ghost friend, it could also result in an attachment, and (depending on what they went through in their life and during their death that caused them to be stuck on Earth after death) the entity may be unwilling to give up the friendship. It depends on your boundaries though. I personally don’t welcome anything to communicate with me unless it’s living. The only exception I have is for passed loved ones and/or my ancestors, but I only allow the communication to take place in my dreams because then I can discern who’s communicating with me.
I also really love my privacy and space (emotional, spiritual, astral, and so on).

It’s kind to want to help, but just be careful!

Yes I agree about the advice. What I wrote came from an experience I had while walking through a park one evening a few weeks ago. My psychic channels were open without me realising or having tried to and a spirit noticed and I felt like I was being watched very intensely. My reaction was to clam up and block it out. I wasn’t sure if it was a human watching me at first but the feeling of being watched was so intense and different, I realised it might be a spirit. I put my house keys in my end to use as a weapon in case it was a human though and walked out of the park. I then came across a hedgehog which I received advice from, I will fill in the blanks later.

I was planning on writing about this soon but I might as well now. The hedgehog was trying to climb up a verge to go back into the woods and it was interesting watching it. I moved closer to video it and it stopped moving so I stood further back and it moved again and I filmed it until it disappeared. The message I got was the importance of boundaries. Whether the hedgehog taught me this lesson or was just going about its business, I think the former. I think I received or perceived this message because my psychic channels were open but it’s not something I consciously realised.

The reason they opened was because I was messing with paradigm’s (again, unintentionally). I had been arguing on this forum about Veganism and shaking things up a bit, I was being quite passionate about it and trying to wake people up to see animal’s as sentient beings. The message about boundaries from the hedgehog was not to upset people’s paradigm and by upsetting the paradigm, I had opened my psychic channels. Don’t ask why my channels opened or why I was able to disrupt a paradigm, but this is what I did and what I was able to do.

When I got home, I pulled some tarot cards to see what this spirit that was watching me was. I will post the photos of the tarot cards I got below, but the spread is not clear unless I explain it. Basically, the card in the middle is the initial card, and I pull a card on the left to clarify ‘what does this mean’ and a card on the right to clarify ‘what does this not mean.’ I pulled two initial cards, one for what the spirit was and another for what it wanted.

— I have circled the two initial cards in the photo below. For what it was, I got ‘8 wands,’ what is was was the ‘Sun,’ it went the ‘empress.’

— The 8 wands describes perfectly how intensely I felt I was being watched. The reason for this intensity is because it was sending a lot of energy towards me in an 8 of wands way. It was the sun and not an empress, sun signifies a child and empress a mother - it was a child spirit. The significance of it not being the empress is maybe it needs its mother.

— The 2nd circle card on the right was me asking what it wanted. The circled card is ‘wheel of fortune,’ which is a bit ambiguous. I think it saw an opportunity because my psychic channels were opened, so it was by pure chance of came towards me. Wheel of fortune means 7 cups, it does not mean 6 of wands. It seems like the spirit was confused as me and 6 of wands is referring to it not being successful in its attempt to reach me.

You will notice the 4 of cups below the circled card on the left. This was me just asking for another clarifier and the 4 of cups is showing me literally rejecting the offer of communication.
