Yes I was kind of thinking that you could either experience digital things like songs together or save things in a specific folder. Images, poems, etc. I think if you spend time with the intent you could make a lot out of it. Like a photo of a flower isn’t going to have the same natural energy as an actual flower, but spending some time offering them your concept of the flower while you’re looking at it or making some digital art of it would bring its own special energy.

I’m just spitballing here. I haven’t tried this except for creating digital portraits of my companions since I don’t have onerous space constraints.

Another thing you could do is put together song Playlists, or even edit a video of one of their favorite characters or things.

Yep. And I know some people play video games with their spirits. For a while I tried out having a different WoW character for playing with different spirits. That never really clicked for me/us, but it certainly would for some.

I have a Pinterest board for each of my companions. I save things to it that I think they'll like, things that remind me of them, what their preferred environment is, food they might enjoy, things like that. I have a big altar in my house but not little individual spaces for them so I see the Pinterest boards as a type of digital altar for each spirit. And when I'm on and I'm just looking at random things I keep myself aware of my spirits so if they see anything random that they like they can let me know. It seems to work for all of us and my unicorn, pegasus, and kelpie have REALLY gotten into it.


Companions: 1 unicorn "F", 1 pegasus "N", 1 rainbow dragon "A", 1 gargoyle “M”, 1 Mononoke “Su”, 1 kelpie "I", 1 garden faery "Lo", 1 hawk spirit familiar "Mushroom", 1 garden elf "L", 1 mermaid "E", 1 Erotic Angel "Ty", 1 celestial nymph, 1 nympho "P", 1 garden faery spirit guide "R", 1 merman "Ta"

Some interesting thoughts, to be sure. Definitely some ideas worth trying.

I ended up offering my Dullahan that cross last night. It made me very emotional to do so . I think I have unresolved feelings about religion and God, and I might have been picking up on his appreciation at the same time. Either way it was an odd sentimental moment.

Even so, it sounds positive for the most part. I'm glad you and your Dullahan are figuring out offerings together. :)

I'm very interested in the video game aspect. How does one play games with a Spirit?

A little like having someone look over your shoulder while you play, but a bit more integrated. I let them help me design the characters, choose which areas to go through, etc. The main difference is just kind of a level of mindfulness and engagement. Like I would read lots of things I would usually skip because my companions won't have read the same quest text over and over.

I wonder if I could incorporate this into a game like League, where it's not so adventurous but competitive and with lots of little things to take note of and recognize...it seems like it'd be more likely to stress them out.

yes that all sounds like good ideas ... I started "collecting" some stuff on my PC to re-use them .... but somehow I never really followed up this project ...
