Energy Sources

Where do people get their energy sources from? I hear a lot of talk about pulling power from nature, especially the earth, or from storms, or a whole lot of other external sources. I've found that I don't do that - I tend to find energy in my own body somewhere. Maybe it's because I don't do witchcraft, and therefore don't need extra energy to do workings?

Interested to know whether anyone else finds this, or just where your energy does come from, when you need more of it.

Are there any on this board who identify as pantheist or panentheist?

Asking Permission?

This topic was partially sparked from Constructing a Ritual Based on Two Paths, but it is something that has been on my mind for awhile. I've noticed that a lot of people feel they have to ask permission from their main Deity before working with another Deity. I haven't really felt this and thusly have never asked permission before, so I'm wondering why others do? Why is it necessary to get permission from one Deity before working with another?

Best ways of 'powering' up?

A friend said that laying outside in nature and soaking up solar rays is a good way of getting positive energies.
How about sitting outside in a thunder storm? I always get goose bumps when near electrical devices or when outside in a storm.

Ways of getting natural energies for your aura/yourself?
Fact or fiction?

What Makes a Druid?

In your opinion, what should a person do in order to become a Druid? According to my research, those who became Druids studied for about 20 years, memorizing everything they were taught. Some argue that most of us have that type of training (given our modern education), so an additional 20 years is not necessary. Some think that a Ph.D is required. What do you think?

In Remembrance of Chavi and Elspeth

by Celtee
31 March 2008
In memory of Chavi

The anniversary is come
This day once a year
Our hearts now are heavy
We’ll shed many tears

Chavi Ravenna
Your spirit lives on
Always we remember
Tho two years have gone

Our memories of you
Are now bittersweet
But close to our hearts
We ever shall keep

Chavi Ravenna
Sweet shining star
Always so close
Yet ever so far

Storyteller Cat
Dux Bellorum, War Duke
This day we salute you
And laugh through our tears

by Elspeth Sapphire

Lifetime companion...
Where have you gone?
I thought that your place was at my side forever,
Your warmth beside me in my bed.
Now I find myself watching for you
Hearing a noise at the door ....
But only finding empty air and memories.
Funny ... it is the things I hated
That I find I miss the most.
I find myself saving tidbits
But how do you feed a spirit?
I remind myself of cycles;
That death is a beginning ...
And never an ending ...
But I am only too aware
I am barren and alone.

Oh, where have you gone?
Is that your touch brushing by?
Or will you live within me ...
Until that day that we meet again.
Oh, lifetime companion....
