^^ i'd like to hear of other's experiences as well!
i was absolutely just gobsmacked when i read this thread. it is crystally clear to me i shall have to do more research...
since as long as i can remember, i have been fascinated by pyramids. i've always been drawn to stories and books that feature them, and have had dreams about being in them, however, they were not like the giza ones, rather, more open and it would appear i lived in them....i don't know
so, a life long collection of pyramids began, and people give them to me as gifts. i particularly like the crystal ones....
so, about fifteen years ago, i found the smallest crystal pyramid, about a quarter inch base, on a chain. i took the chain off, and found a silver hoop and have worn this pyramid in my left ear since then. i have taken it off once, when i had to go for surgery and was made to, against my ignored better judgement of the surgical staff. the second i woke up, well, maybe not that second, but for sure within a half hour, i was asking for my earring and put it back in. i'm just totally out of sorts without it.
since reading this thread, i'm asking myself why i'm so neurotic about this earring that must be in my ear, at all times. thinking i might change up the positioning so that the apex faces my neck rather than the way i wear it now and see what happens, lol, what a daredevil!
and another aspect that i find fascinating is the mention of teepees. i am cree, and i have always found my visits to these structures very comforting, very cathedral-like in nature.
and another thing lately, (isn't synchronicity fascinating?), last week i took my mother to the dollar store so that she could purchase a witches hat for her senior's group hallowe'en party. anyway, it got me to thinking about dunces caps, and that they were a sign of derision in the olden days, and how i remember looking at illustrations in books when i was a young girl, and thinking that the cap was making them smarter!, and that the teachers who put them on the perceived dumb kids were dumber. why i would ever think this is still beyond me. and now i think about it, why would witches wear conical hats if not to tap into a "magical" power?
i see i have a lot more to learn. thank you, so very much, for this thread.
Oh Great Spirit, make me ready, for that last sunset, and my Spirit will come to you without shame.
