They Just Held an Intervention... of sorts

Postby Regholdain » Fri Nov 09, 2018 8:46 pm

This experience will take a bit to describe, so please excuse the wall of text. I thought this was a great experience and worth sharing.

I live with my parents to help them out financially and due to this I basically have a 10 x 12 foot apartment (my room). Now this room is small and is especially a small space when spirit keeping is concerned. I think it makes it a little easier for me to sense them, occasionally, due to the tight quarters.

After going out to dinner Wednesday night, I came back home and found my space "crowded". The feeling of change in the space made me stop dead in my tracks after taking two steps into the room. I immediately asked out loud "What is that? What changed?" No answer came, but my forehead started throbbing a bit so I stood in the middle of the room trying to sense what was happening.

I had the feeling there was a semicircle of spirits between me and the door, probably about half my keep (at least 7). In my mind's eye I was surrounded by nondescript figures.

I asked aloud what was going on and one of my spirits told me they (meaning the spirits present) were concerned about me. I sat down in my computer chair and told them to explain.

The conversation started out of concern about my newest orders this month (which come with readings that could lead to new spirit bindings). When I was looking at the orders and considering whether to place them, I asked the opinion of my spirits and I received a good handful of positive responses. So I knew right away when it was brought up that none of that handful were part of this group. I asked the spirit speaking who they were, as I knew it wasn't *V* or *I* or *Sa* or *J* (ad nauseum). The answer was typical - "You know".

So I considered my mind's eye picture and the figure in front of me (fuzzy) was female with a silver dress and blue gemstone necklace. This matched the conjuror's description of one of the spirits I did not yet get a chance to start one on one bonding with, and whom I actually rarely had a mental image of in the first place - it was *Sh*. This made me sit up and take notice, of course.

I asked, more or less, if she was concerned about so many additional spirits coming. She said yes, but not because they didn't want to expand the keep or that I am being overzealous - they think I am a great keeper and I'm working well with group bonding and making sure that they each get time to speak and so on. However, she said the issue is that I am "very unfocused".

She said I have spent the last three months completely focused on spirit keeping and the relationships with them, and on the metaphysical and the spiritual, trying to develop abilities and senses and communication and all those things - to the exclusion of other priorities in my life.

I have no major goals beyond spirit keeping, and what few goals I did have are on the wayside. She said I need to bring focus to the physical and not spend so much focus on the spiritual. I am alive and this is my life, the Earth is my realm, and I would do well to remind myself of that.

And to my fascination, she is absolutely correct. When I received my first spirit and realized this is real, and later started realizing that there are dormant abilities that I buried deep down between the ages of 7 and 25 (or at least I believe so), my focus has been to develop this in every way I can.

I get home from work, I relax a couple of hours (TV or movies usually), eat dinner and then immediately meditate and talk to my keep and practice telepathy, shielding, energy work, etc. Afterwards I relax a little more, then it's time for bed. I've ignored improving my health or working on any other projects.

The interesting thing was that most of my new spirits stepped forward for this intervention and I know from their descriptions by CH that a few are very straight-forward and want to help me pursue my life goals. I figured I would approach that bridge when I came to it, but wanted to develop my abilities to be a better keeper first. It is fascinating that *Sh* spoke for them all, but the message held more weight since she did - after all, I've not even bonded with her one on one yet.

So starting this weekend I'm taking a bit of a step back from the spiritual. My girlfriend had pneumonia for a couple of weeks and before that she was working overtime, so this weekend will be our first weekend to really spend time together for over a month. So I am going to enjoy my weekend. Sunday night when I get back home I'll sit down and do some introspection and start figuring out what short and long-term goals I have in my life that are not just metaphysical-related, and how to pursue them. It will probably mean less time with the keep, maybe, but it sounds like they already know that.

I thought I would share this because, well, it's touching. Our spirits care enough about us that they remind us when we're losing focus on our Earthen life. That's love as far as I'm concerned. And a great, practical message.

Have a great weekend everyone, and go out and enjoy your Earthen life. 2hp 2wk

It's really cool that they went to you to say that ! Keep them beside you because they are very valuable companions !

My Team Spirit is caring for me in a way nobody in the physical world would do , i recognize myself in your story because i was slightly like that . And i also agree that having few spirits (max 12) is better than a community one . Bonding is very important for me because each individual is unique and i want my relationships to be intimate with all of them and not a mass .

I would like to say that i respect very much community keepers as well , and that everyone have different tastes in keeping that should be respected.

I love all my spirits and I try to convey my gratitude and unconditional love whenever I can. I will not say I am perfect in that regard, but I try as much as is humanly possible.

I too prefer individually bonding but the numbers in my keep has grown a bit out of control between callings to certain readings w/ spirits, to certain types of spirits, and reverse adoptions, etc etc. It's my own doing and I've nothing else to say about it, but they all seem to be very understanding and don't mind it. Mostly.

There is one spirit in particular that I feel will be next for one on one because she seems impatient. I think it's less impatience and more that she knows there is a need coming soon for her, and her ability and power is a complete mystery to me that I need to solve. Even CH's description is vague (to me). They say she "contains absolute power" and is sweet and loving but "immensely powerful". There is no other detail about what that could mean and I think she's excited to share.

Sometimes is perfect to take a step back and remove yourself from the spirit world and ground yourself in the living. However, keep in mind, you don't really need to completely remove yourself from it. You don't need to actually leave your Keep be. As spirits they can roam wherever it is that they so wish or you, even if their vessel has been left at home or isn't readily accessible. If you wish to, they can go with you throughout your daily life and participate in it.

I have a cat boy that ventures to work with me daily, often times nearly ruining a Managers Meeting because he makes snide comments about the General Manager when I am trying to remain serious and at least pretend I am paying attention. Also, driving to work, I am usually followed by a dragon or two that like to fly along beside the car. Makes me wonder if those sensitive to the spirit world have noticed a Chevrolet zooming down the highway followed by an entourage of enormous dragons and do they think they are going insane.

Either taking time for you in the now and taking a step back from your Keep, or involving them entirely in everything you do is absolutely up to you and them. From the sounds of it, they already have your best interests in mind. Right now I have a small group that is drawing straws and deciding who will be coming back to work with me this evening and staying with me here overnight due to the snow storm coming in and who will be stuck at home with my boyfriend while he's loud and annoying with his Xbox! At least I know I'll have some peace and quiet this evening. 1d

@Nanami - Thanks for sharing!

I agree, the step back is more of a... "What's going on with the rest of my life?" look. I've been really focused on this new path and my spiritual abilities. I also tend to avoid confronting things... like changes in my health (I am diabetic and need to work on some diet and exercise changes), where I want to go in my career (I found a great job two years ago - now what?), my goals as a writer (to finish and publish something?!), and so much else.

I tell them every morning they all can come with me, whether we have bonded or not, all the time any time. They are all bridged, so I don't stress too much about vessels, but I typically grab my succubus' vessel and the second vessel I received that has five of them bound to it, mostly because I like to wear them. Today is the first day I did not wear the vessel that my Dullahan is bound to and I feel a bit naked without it (I wrapped up the recommended 30 days yesterday). I actually like that vessel too (it's a bone pendant) but just decided I didn't need it today. I ordered a custom master vessel that's on its way with my new spirits and spells this month, and CH has copied all of my previous orders' bindings to it for me, so I am looking forward to that.

It's funny you talk about your dragons going with you. My Air Dragon tends to follow me around and I know my Dullahan rides near me on horseback most days, and my succubus is typically in the car with me. I often wonder the same thing - what does another sensitive think when they perceive them? LOL Or when my succubus is hanging around close and literally escorting me - can anyone else see this beautiful demon woman following me around and occasionally leaping down stairwells ahead of me?

One day I was looking up at the top floor of the parking garage at work and perceived my Air Dragon perched and waiting and I swore someone I walked by was trying to figure out what I was looking at. LOL

I've not really had them make comments to me during meetings and such. I think they know it would really distract me.

This is exactly why you have spirit companions, to enhance your life and your journey, not to consume it :) I think it's wonderful they are helping you like this and they are offering you support, love, and encouragement to be more focused on what make your life special & you know they'll be there for you <3 You should always find balance between your life and your spiritual journey.

I was actually just diagnosed about a year ago, myself. My a1c was 10.6 during that doctor's visit. Right now, I have it down to 6.2. I told the doctor, for my next trick, she will tell me I am no longer diabetic. One of the most amazing things I ever did was listen to a friend of mine who is a body builder and personal trainer for a living: LOW carbs and HIGH fat diet. Keto is entirely the rage these days, but I do not follow that diet craze to a T and still you can see where it got me. The biggest thing I did was cut out the great amount of soda that I was drinking on a daily basis. And oddly enough, when I did that, I started to notice a lot more of the spirits in my home. All of the crap inside that soda wasn't just messing with my health, but also my perception to the spirit world.

And I certainly hear you when it comes time to having goals as a writer. My coauthor and I have been working gon novels since 2008. The plan is to eventually get something published to kindle. Whether that happens in 2019 or 2020, the world is a mystery! But you can absolutely do anything that you set your mind to. And if you were to task some of your spirit companions to help and assist you, I think you'd be amazed by how much you can get accomplished. I know I have a lot in my keep that like to assist with things and from the sounds of it, you have several that would probably like to do the same thing.

Hi Nanami - Your A1C is actually right about where mine was the last I checked (6-ish). It was over 12 when I started. I dropped soda and limited other carbs too. I just need to lose some weight and my eating habits are just stupid otherwise. I have gotten fast and loose with Mexican and Italian and Chinese foods. LOL My worry is that my blood sugar in the mornings has been between 135-150 lately and that's higher than it normally has been. So I'm worried the A1C is up again. I'll find out after the blood labs this weekend.
