Ever wanted to perform some kind of devotional rite, but feel embarrassed about doing it in an organized religious setting? I have. I was at a church service, and lost myself in the music. I wanted to prostrate myself in worship, but that’s just not done here. Despite churches and temples purportedly being places for prayer, it’s only a certain style of prayer…calm, sane, sanitized.
Another time, I was at a outdoor Pagan ritual. I was suddenly overcome, and went freeform (after the Sabbat ended). People started copying my movements, thinking that what I was doing must be part of another group ritual. It wasn’t. I stopped immediately. I was just having a private moment.
I can’t kneel in prayer on a busy street corner, set up elaborate rituals in my front yard, or speak in tongues while standing in the bank lobby. Well, I can, but I’d get hauled away to a nice, happy place with rubber walls.
On another note, I feel that entities are visiting me in my dreams. Some may be giving me warnings. One seems to be a protector.
In the dream, the protector told me his first name. We were both wearing military uniforms, but he vastly outranked me. I was newly enlisted, with no idea what I was doing. He didn’t talk to me, but we lay down together on a bed, side by side. You can guess what happened from there. It was rough, the kind of sex you wear on your skin for a week - bruises, scratches and all. And I liked it. Wouldn’t mind having seconds.
He put something into my body. Something besides the obvious.
I have no instinctual fears about this entity, although he’s mostly silent. He’s very protective, despite everything else he has going on, which is a lot. Still, I feel that I’ve been fitted with a tracking device of some sort. He knows how to find me again. Then again, they all do, the dream people.
