I'm very glad to read these. It's important for new and older members to know these rules, especially the first one. I posted something a few months and a tenured member made a rather mean and rather personal comment. They might have been trying to be funny or sarcastic but it didn't immediately come off that way. I made me very hesitant to post anything for awhile. I still am when I see this person's name in the discussion.


We are who we choose to be. Fate, Destiny, the Gods, the Ancestors... they can put a path before us. We still have to choose to walk it.

Ooo so it becomes more academic and professional:)
I wonder if there's a preferable format for citation, or free form is fine, like just putting the link in the post.


Just including the person's name, site or book and saying the info was gotten from there, should be fine. If you're using a link, please remember that links to other meta sellers are not allowed outside of the seller's section.

Good point on when and where to post (or not post) seller links. I'm a big fan of using links. But if we're getting info from a seller's site, we can at least say their name when citing the information.


Visit The Lightworker's Sphere on Etsy for my handmade wands, metaphysical gemstone jewelry, and meditation binaural/isochronic audio files. Visit my MP link (on the profile under my userID) for the spelled items that Etsy deemed too hot to handle! :) I look forward to seeing you there!

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but why should we not share the names of our spirits?

As far as I have read:
-it might be used by the non-keepers to call the spirit
-it might create confusion when there are 2 or more spirits in the same race who have the same name
-there was a debate in one thread that one claimed to have communicated with another's spirit, but gave different answer about how the spirit was feeling about the keeper (might be related to the ban for vessel reading as well)

As long as other people can't say the name of the spirit from another keeper, their claim about what the spirit does or says is doubtful and not valid. It can as well be that they contact an unbound spirit around them, or around that keeper.

Maybe others have a better answer about this, though:/

I thought the biggest reason was that it was disrespectful to the spirit to share their names?

After 7 years or so, these rules seem fine with me.

There are no stupid questions! Usually this isn't an issue with spirits who are bound by reputable practitioners who have the proper protections in place, but sometimes people claim to tamper with or provoke the spirits of others. For this reason we say to err on the side of caution and not name your spirits by their true name. This way it completely removes any doubt someone is trying to mess with you or your spirits in any way.

Phew... Finally read it all, I'll try to be sure to remember all this and to be good. These rules sound pretty good too, they're not hard to follow if you know them and are actually doing what you're supposed to. Now that I've read them I'm gonna do my best to follow them! Thanks for making them easily understandable and straight forward~ I really appreciate that. :)
