Retour to shamanism – experiencing spirits and past lives without a cosmology in the modern West

Ok, prepare for an incoherent post. I haven't been writing for a long time again, because of the usual distractions of travel, dilemmas, and dramas. A few months ago I started listening to podcasts from Last Mask Center, based on a recommendation from Wildseed Society (asked them for shamanism trainings that aren't racist and appropriative … Continue reading Retour to shamanism – experiencing spirits and past lives without a cosmology in the modern West

Exodus from paradise and forced return to following politics (comments on Ukraine war from Poland)

This is more a generalised update post. I have been toying with various article topic ideas, but in the end the point is that my best friend has a crisis and can't listen (incl. to my newest theories), and I don't feel like paying a stranger to listen, so I'll once again simply write up … Continue reading Exodus from paradise and forced return to following politics (comments on Ukraine war from Poland)

Involuntary telepathy again, and book recommendation on (extra)sensory perception in autism

So I'm too tired and jaded to describe it, but it seems to have happened again – within the same couple of days probably twice. Event for which the simplest explanation is that for some reason I had a flash (in one case of less than a second, in the other longer – perhaps seconds or minutes) … Continue reading Involuntary telepathy again, and book recommendation on (extra)sensory perception in autism

Grief and truth; thoughts on ‘healing’ trauma and liminal experiences

Follow-up to yesterday's rambling spontaneous post, I guess. It does seem that when I really ask a question, internally, kind of earnestly – the answer sometimes actually shows up fast. (Sometimes slow, but this time it's instant delivery.) I don't think I jotted this down on this blog, but a while back I asked myself … Continue reading Grief and truth; thoughts on ‘healing’ trauma and liminal experiences

Turtle steps vs. snail trails if you are trying to do sth. with ADD

So sometimes it really matters who says something. During my self-help era, I've read in so many self-help tomes about how you need to take small, consistent steps (merely writing this out makes me cringe). Consistent. Small. In other words – unstimulating. dull. mechanistic. boring. Just thinking about it is infuriating ... like heck, who … Continue reading Turtle steps vs. snail trails if you are trying to do sth. with ADD

Exploring ADD: the ill-defined inner itch, addiction, putting the horse in front of the right cart

I'll do another pain-digestion, self-analysis post though. Just to get going writing again.Also, having "a life" (attempting to interact with broader society more), it's harder to blog without giving specifics and details. Which I don't like. Apparently my concept of "privacy" is pretty inverted – no problem laying my feelings and dilemmas bare before the … Continue reading Exploring ADD: the ill-defined inner itch, addiction, putting the horse in front of the right cart
