[quote=“Khayyin, post:6, topic:8923”]Well ok then! I hope that was interesting enough to justify its length!
I appreciate everyone’s suggestions and since you asked how I usually commune w/ spirits, I hope you have more advice for me, Audsynn! You’ve been very helpful :D[/quote]
Never apologize for the length of a reply. It means you have taken the time to think on it, and articulate it properly.
It sounds like you’ve already been doing the war vs/with intellect thing and got that down well. As AdamThoth said, Be willing to use that strategic thinking in your every day life.
Since you’ve been opening sigils, I will share this little way that you can communicate with an entity on a bit more a specific basis than just dreams and ‘signs’. This is basic stuff that can be modified for any entitiy.
*something to light the candle (obviously)
*pen or pencil
So, you light your candle, and open your sigil. (You can find several sigils for her that others have created if you google Athena’s sigil, or you can make one of your own. Or, just use her name in Greek lettering, just remember her last letter isn’t alpha, it’s epsilon, her name is supposed to be Athene, with the last e pronounced /eh/.). Do your opening of her sigil, and then put the sigil down and get the notebook. Ask a question, out loud if you can, and then write down the very first thing that comes to mind. It might not make sense, that is OK. Write it down anyway. Keep asking questions, keep writing down answers. As you do this (it may take many sessions), the answers will start to make wonderful sense, they’ll get longer and more detailed. If you ask the question outloud and you honestly hear nothing in yoru head, no ideas at all, then write the question down, over and over, until you get something other than the question in your mind. So, if you ask, “What can you teach me?” and you get no answer, keep writing “What can you teach me?” over. It might be three pages, that’s alright, too. Keep writing it, until you get an answer, even if the answer is silly sounding, like, “I you the hairy caterpillar make.” You’ll look at it and go, “What the hell?” but you got an answer. You’re opening that channel to learn to listen to her.
