Here is a link to directly view

I had a surprising experience a bit more than three years ago where my neighbor had found an opossum skull and showed me! It happened suddenly, he had left it where it was and I had been standing nearby talking with them.

Later when I went inside and had opened a capsule of coleus root extract over a plate, the residual powder somehow formed into this overall shape. I must have tipped the plate at some point.

An image was clear to me due to context: It is possible to see basically a somewhat mantid-headed being that can perhaps be interpreted as wearing a long robe, gently holding what still seems to me to resemble a living opossum with its head and face visible! The actual image is subjective of course but I find the proportions and details to be rather inspiring!

I decided to share this not due to the image itself, rather due to the idea you are describing about how the Power of Expectation and Power of Suggestion are so deeply within the fullness of existence, such that there can be surprising interactions between them!!

<3 Buddy.. I think you will find yourself back to a hobby in no time. But I did the same thing.. for 20ish years. I packed up my old life and traded it in for a lot of work lol.. but I have a lot of great things now because of it. Only going back to my roots when the family illness thing happened. It would be nice to hear how you are doing and know you are killing it in life.

If you can maintain a better attitude than anyone around you. Keep up with those you know need a call. Be kind when you don't feel like it.. you can go a really long way in life. Not sure why, but those skills matter more than the 'trade' skills many times.



Some Not-so-motivational-but-this-is-all-I-got-quotes.

Marcus Aurelius: The only thing that isn't worthless: To live this life out truthfully and rightly. And be patient with those who don't.

Alan Watts: You need to play the game or else you make a right mess for everyone around you!

Dance that dance man! Just make sure to let us know when you make it to the finals Razz

ACY, your story, is my story. I went, and still going through, similar struggles, and this entity (which I call Esther) was there for me in a similar way.

But here's where I have trouble that she (and your Mantis) are just another aspect of our personality: Esther has correctly foretold the future 3 times so far for me.

She has also told me clearly that the future is never set in stone, and depending on our actions, it can take different forms. I experienced that as well (basically, the event foretold happened, but because different decisions were taken, it ended up differently than it was ultimately foretold). Other times, she was on point.

So, while a soft-split personality in all of us might be the culprit for seeing entities, I have trouble believing that we're also capable of telling the future. But then again, who knows.

Your dreams can often predict the future, this doesn't require entities. There seems to be a part of the mind which is outside time.

While I don't dispute that, I also don't dispute the fact that 4D physics and math exists, and it's totally possible that beings that live in these dimensions are totally possible, and even natural. During trance/sleep/high, when our brains changes gears, we might be able to see glimpses of their world, and communicate. I don't see that as weird. Saying that "part of the mind is outside of time" does not mutually exclude any other explanation. Not to even mention that -- if you want to go totally skeptic -- that "mind outside of time" is as pseudoscientific as what I suggested. Personally, it feels natural to me that these entities do exist and are objective entities, while communicating to us via subjective means. Maybe that's the only way to cross-over.

Sure, but I know from my own experience that my dreams have sometimes predicted the future in ways which are completely impossible to currently explain scientifically, or even statistically. I've had dreams predicting incredibly obscure and impossible to know details, which came true the next day.

At the same time, that by itself doesn't mean we have to postulate additional things (Occam's razor can still apply).

I'm not saying your belief in entities which are external to the mind is wrong. Just that having dreams predicting the future doesn't necessarily imply that.

That's true, but I was told things by entities that in all intends and purposes, weren't me. I didn't just see a dream that resembled the future, or that it had a storyline that later played out. Instead, I was made lucid by them (as if waking up while still asleep), and I was told so and so very directly.

If you're on a fence, take a trip. If you're on a trip, don't take offense.

It's like building a mountain vs. digging a hole. To do one, you are also doing the other. At the end, where do you want to stand?
