So, I've been doing a lot of Shadow-work, over the past X-number of months, and really trying to square-away some solid plans for my life.

It's the busy-season at work, so my schedule is all over the place, and I use my time to the best advantage, though I've been reading a lot, lately, on subjects like history, law, politics, and psychology, and thinking-over the nature of my spiritual life--inasmuch as I've concluded that, while I don't find it within to believe in spell-casting, there is a deep and profound magic to be found in Hermetic practices and the application of psychological principles.

I've laid-down my wand, for the time-being, so that I might pursue, more seriously, my desired career as a wood-carver (ultimately crafting furniture, toys and masks), drawing on First Nations and European influences, per my ancestry.

Though summer is a difficult time for me to develop much of a life, outside of increased responsibility and time spent at work, I intend to join a Toastmasters group, and a square-dancing club--perhaps even a curling-club--in the fall.

2017 has, thus far, been a time of setting priorities, rediscovering the passions which burn within, and embracing the Aries/Mars energy of my sun-sign, for the pursuit of new goals--rather, the vigorous aspiration toward old goals, whose positions on the horizon I had lost for so long.

I see that there has been little activity on MM, this year, and I hope everyone has found some new pursuits which are keeping them busy!

Hello Gentle People !
 Its finally hitting me, I almost died.
Last May I went to the ER with pain in my whole abdomen.
The ER wasn't too busy cause it was May 5th (Mexican holiday)
anyway, they did all kinds of test. X-ray, injected dye in me and
took pics of my heart to rule it out. Did an ultrasound on my abdomen
and found gall stones, gall bladder not full but could still cause problems.
My ride wanted to get home before dark and I understood, they were done with me except
giving results, so we left. I must have passed a stone cause my belly felt better.
 A week later my Dr calls me to tell me I have a couple stones. So she sets me up
with a referral... I made appt, they rescheduled 3 times, refferal expired and I need
to apply for new one. Well I'm not going to that place if they did that. I felt mostly
better with a little abdominal discomfort now and then.
 A couple weeks later the discomfort got worse, I'd get up, come sit in my chair and
bend over laying on my thighs it would go away, after a few nights of this I decided
I'd go back to ER the next day.
 Sept. 22 I got up and the discomfort was intense and it wasn't easing up. I had a
thought and just to cover my butt I took an old nitro glycerine of hubby's. I wound up
taking 2 they were so old I had to smash it under my tongue just to feel it working at
all. Then I beat on the wall waking hubby. Ouch it hurt, still feeling it was gall bladder
I still had him take my blood pressure 157/109, okay call ambulance (only cause my
insurance pays for it!) Closest Hosp because of readings they got. By then across my
chest hurt, all across my shoulder blades hurt, and I couldn't stop throwing up ! Nurses
were wondering where all of that was coming from ! I went thru 7 bags...
With in 2 hours of arriving I was in a room getting a stint put in my artery. My main
artery was 100% blocked. I had a heart attack...
 My Mom passed in my house in 2013 from cancer, a few days before she passed
she had no energy to even wash up. When she passed I laid crying across her like
I could keep her here ! Anyway, she didn't stink per se' but there was a smell.
 The night I was having my heart attack, I smelled that same smell by my bed.
That's what made me get up, I knew it was Mom, but was she there to guide me
or push me ?
 May this new year bring you wisdom and the knowledge of how to use it !
 Gentle Rainbow Light

There are several movies I can remember seeing in childhood that likely inspired my fascination with magic and the occult, in which characters used charms, spells, and incantations to transform one thing/person to another, to summon beasts/spirits, and to enact changes in the story-worlds, but they seem to be less and less common in modern TV and movies--or is it just me?

Excalibur had the Charm of Making, Willow, its transformation charms, Dragonslayer, its various-and-sundry Latin incantations, and so-forth, down to Eragon, which drew on Old Norse, and then the Harry Potter franchise, with its short Latin commands.

Is it just me, or have movies simply gone from using inventively-composed spells, to a kind of point-and-click style of magic, where through simply waving a wand, or pointing a staff, a spell is cast? Am I just not looking in the right places?

I've mentioned it elsewhere on the forum, but I was first introduced to the notions and practices of energy-healing as a boy, when I would spend hours at the local library, poring over books in the metaphysical/new-age, psychology, paranormal, and healing sections. I experimented with Therapeutic Touch, crystal-healing, and other methods, and when I encountered the few books mentioning Reiki, I began to wonder what it would be like to become "certified" in the practice.

Not until I was an adult did I bother to sign-up for a level-one course, but while I enjoyed the small group I was working with, I was a bit dismayed that I was the only male in the class, and as we got further into the sessions, and were eventually given a sneak-peek into the second level of training, I began to realize that, though not certified in the tradition, I had already studied most of what would be discussed in advanced levels, as a teenager; hence, I chose not to continue my study, and saved myself a large sum of money, which I didn't feel I could fairly recoup by charging money to train others, had I attained Master level...

I've since left Reiki behind, in favour of other healing traditions, but I do think it's a decent introduction to many New-Age ideas and practices.

I'm a fan of the old Disney films, which have been too-often remade in the past couple of decades, with none of the whimsy of the originals. I was thinking about the 1959 version of The Shaggy Dog, and the spell which was included therein: (https://youtu.be/MW4o5_tg7Ys), and began to think of the concept of shape-shifting, which has been a part of folklore and magical/shamanic practice since who-knows-when.

Are there any good books that discuss the subject/practice?
