  1. Hello Toc, I often place the stone under my upper thigh as I lie on my back in bed falling asleep. It's interesting how much you feel the energy with your stone. That state between sleeping and awareness is a good entry way for me to go into dreaming energy, with or without my dreaming stone. And yes indeed, dreaming energy can be felt while awake too. Welcome to the cave, D,
  2. Works for me too. It's funny how I forget that maybe I can actually do something about these kinds of things. And amazing how much it does work when I remember and put some effort into it. Not battin' 1000 yet, but with practice there is improvement.
  3. and ice cream. don't forget the ice cream.
  4. This sentence fragment begs a question, doesn't it? I have my answer, (enough of an answer to allow me to get to work). So, I'll step out of the picture and phrase it in the 2nd person only--- Who or what are your creators? -d.
  5. Hello Makers. Niteshad mentions the lunar cycle (phases of the moon) in 1 or 2 articles on the website. In the Maker tradition is there any use of the changes in the solar cycle (seasons of the year)? I'm thinking of the Celtic observance of the 4 mid-points between the equinoxes and the solstices, particularly Samhain (Halloween) and Beltane (May Day). Those two are times when the otherworld and this world are closer than normal or less separated. Or the "veil" that separates the two is thinned, allowing things and people to pass through. (In my view it would be a time when, for whatever reason, human perception of things energetic is heightened, easier, and happens for some normal un-shamanic people. There is no veil; these are not two separate worlds. But that's a technicality). So, from a Maker perspective, is any particular time of year more likely for a perception of normally un-seen things and events? Thanks. -d.
  6. thank you. what I "got" (later the same morning nixrana posted his response) was that "left side" was simply referring to that part of personal energy that is little-used, largely neglected, and lies outside of most people's awareness. "left side of your energy" says in 5 words what I just said in 16. much more eloquent and concise than I could be. regarding the original question in this thread, and ralph's response re brain activity, I would be submit that every thing and every event in the physical/material arena has a non-physical cause. I welcome any feedback on that statement.
  7. I was going post last night "never mind. I've got my answer now." I'm glad I didn't.
  8. "The second attention is a shift towards the left side of your energy, . . . ." --- anyone care to comment on the left and right sides of our energy? -d.
  9. Hello Beth, Do you do anything physically when you "activate" your hands, or is it only a matter of intent and will? -douglas
  10. Ralph, My friends (they are few) seem to find it more irritating than endearing. See you in class. -d.

    The term "ego" is used a few times in articles on this website. What, essentially, is ego? (From a shamanic perspective of course.)
  12. Specifically, gender -- do you experience or perceive energy as being polarized along feminine/masculine lines? (i.e., receptive/active, etc.)
  13. So, today my favorite is Stalking Fluidity. That's the one I've put into action the most so far. (I am, however, intending to put those feathers to good use-- when I learn how.)
  14. I have many that I really like. Limiting it to two favorites at this moment . . . . . . Contemporary Shamanism, particularly the last four paragraphs. (Even though I now have feathers in my possession.) And Shamanism in the Modern World, the whole thing. Respects to all staff, faculty, admin, pushers, and Poobahs here, douglas
