After having not used this account for several years I discovered it was still saving the draft of the last entry I'd been going to post and never did. Wow. Weird. And sad. I hadn't realized how insanely upset I was about that event. Now I'm all bummed thinking about it again.

I'm not a Nazi!

The Expatriate

Achtung! You are 15% brainwashworthy, 18% antitolerant, and 28% blindly patriotic

Congratulations! You are not susceptible to brainwashing, your values
and cares extend beyond the borders of your own country, and your Blind
Patriotism does not reach unhealthy levels. If you had been German in the 30s, you would've left the country.

One bad scenario -- as I hypothetically project you back in time -- is
that you just wouldn't have cared one way or the other about Nazism.
Maybe politics don't interest you enough. But the fact that you took
this test means they probably do. I'm gonna give you the benefit of the

Did you know that many of the smartest Germans departed prior to the
beginning of World War II, because they knew some evil shit was
brewing? Brain Drain. Many of them were scientists. It is very possible
you could have been one of them.

Conclusion: born and raised in Germany in the early 1930's, you would not have been a Nazi.

Some guy is spouting off, claiming that various cities are going to collapse today. One he mentioned was Las Vegas.

Does this mean I shouldn't go to the gym today?

Lord Davidian

March 13th, 2005 (08:54 am)

current mood: amused

Lord Davidian keeps showing up, making plays for power, and then disappearing again when people recognize who he is. He's from Romania and keeps using different names in the Las Vegas vampire communities, but...everybody always remembers the vampire from Romania, I suppose. Personally, if I was trying to hide who I was I wouldn't keep mentioning the strange country of my origin.

God. I couldn't make this up if I tried.

current mood: beset by vampires

"Psychic" vampire implies that the vampire in question has psychic powers, not that the vampire feeds psychically. It's the most common term used by the layman, but considered inaccurate by those who consider themselves to be vampires. Their preferred term is "psi-vampire." "Pyschic" refers to how the feeding takes place, while "psi" is what they feed on--psionic energy, also often called prana, chi, or etheric energy.

Sometimes, psi-vampires are fairly ordinary people who are suffering from some sort of illness, which has caused a loss of natural etheric energy, and so they begin to draw upon the energy of those around them to sustain them through the illness.

The symptoms of this include weakness, lethargy, frequent illnesses, and depression.

Since it's been scientifically proven that there are physiological differences between how an extrovert and an introvert react to social situations, all of this isn't really that surprising. An extrovert, by definition, gains energy from being around other people, while an introvert creates his own energy and is drained through social interaction. A psi-vampire could just be some extreme from of extrovert, incapable of sustaining herself energetically she must seek out those who create energy on their own to survive.

Now, this energetic extroversion doesn't have to manifest itself through perky behavior and social butterflyism. It simply means that in order to gain energy this psi-vampire must seek out creators of energy. Other vampires won't be good enough, because it isn't that being around other people creates energy for them, as it would for a normal extrovert. Instead, they literally drain energy, and so can only take it from renewable sources, lest they quickly starve.

This needs more, because I know there's some stuff that I'm missing here, but I've got most of the basics so far, I think. Much revision coming!

Psychic Abilities and Magick
Psychic powers operate on the astral plane, while magick operates on the etheric. Magick requires some sort of ritual and use of imaginative visualization, while psychic powers are innate abilities. However, they overlap in many ways. Few can access their psychic powers without at least some ritual and visualization and few can perform magick without at least beginning to develop their own psychic abilities. Therefore, the most powerful magick would incorporate well developed psychic abilities with some form of ritual and would affect both the astral and the etheric plane and thus be more likely to affect the physical plane.

Astral Projection
Projection of the consciousness into the astral body, and observing from the perspective of the astral plane, which lies just above the etheric plane.

In an astral projection, physical objects and places are not seen as in etheric projection. Instead one can see exact copies of them. In fact, the astral plane is said to contain exact copies of everything physical, in addition to much more. Thought here can influence manifestation and therefore one can create by will, or effect change first on this level and as a result, the physical level. Colors have been said to be more vivid, and sounds more pure.

Auric Vision
The ability to see or sense the energy emanation or "aura" that surrounds all life forms including humans, animals, and plants.

The ability to hear things beyond the range of normal hearing.

The ability to see objects, places or events beyond the power of the range of vision, in either the past, present, or future. When the events seen are in the future the ability is called "precognition" and seeing an event after it has happened is called "retrocognition." Another form of clairvoyance called "remote viewing" involves receiving sensory information about a remote event/place in the present.

The use of objects to "divine" the future. "Scrying" involves gazing into a medium such as water or a crystal ball to see future events, "tarot" uses pictorial cards to gain future insight. Another form of divination the "ouija" board has been in use for centuries. Ouija boards can also be considered a form of mediumship where spirits are contacted.

Empathy is the ability to sense the feelings or emotions of another. Empaths (people who have the ability of empathy) receive their information usually through touch or close contact, though sometimes it has been reported over long distances with a close loved one. This has been reported in many instances with identical twins. This is not the same as mundane empathy, which is simply experiencing the most likely emotions of others upon knowledge of a situation. That is the result of being empathetic--not an empath. It's a normal ability that is hopefully developed during childhood.

Etheric Projection
Projection of the consciousness into the etheric body, and observing from the perspective of the etheric plane which lies just above the physical plane. Since in etheric projection one remains closest to the physical, the physical surroundings can be observed real-time but without the normal physical limitations.

Since the etheric body retains some influences and properties from the physical during an etheric projection, movement can sometimes be difficult and vision sometimes distorted. These symptoms usually improve over time though and with practice.

Extra Sensory Perception or ESP for short is the generalized term to describe the ability of one or more of a multitude of psychic abilities. It doesn't strictly refer to having a "feeling" that something is going to happen.

This is summoning non-physical beings, such as spirits, elementals, angels, demons, or gods. It is extremely dangerous if not done properly and can lead to an unhealthy obsession with an entity or the anger of the summoned being. This is only suggested for benign spirits, elementals, and angels.

This is the internalized version of evocation. Rather than summoning an entity into the circle, the magician channels the being through his own body. When the presence of a god or other powerful, sentient entity is required this is the safest way to do it. It's also strongly suggested that such beings be politely asked, rather than commanded.

Psychic or magickal healing takes place almost entirely on the etheric plane, but by healing the damage on this plane the damage on the physical plane because much easier to deal with. Victims of psychological or sexual abuse will often have severe damage to their etheric body, regardless of whatever damage might have been wrought to their physical one. Similarly, victims of demons, vampires, malicious fae, psychic attacks, etc. may find their etheric bodies damaged far worse than their physical bodies.

Such healing can help to protect an individual from future attacks, since a damaged etheric body makes it much easier for demonic possession or obsession to occur.

The ability to communicate with the deceased. A medium receives information from the dead through clairaudience, or sometimes in a trance as a channel for the deceased to communicate while using the medium's body.

This is a broad range of abilities, covering everything from raising oneself as a vampire to working as a medium. It is power over the dead.

Also called Telekinesis, the ability to affect matter using only the mind. Examples would be moving an object, or bending a spoon by concentrating on it.

The ability to gain knowledge--either through clairvoyance, clairaudience, or some other mode--by coming into contact with an object that is in some way associated with the event or person whom the psychomancer is trying to gain knowledge of.

The ability to control fire through psychic or ritual means. While minor manipulations are sometimes possible, any control greater than making the flame on a single candle flicker, grow, or shrink is improbable.

The ability to communicate with another person using only the mind. Some telepaths are better "receivers", meaning that they can only receive information sent by another telepath or they are better at receiving than sending. Others are better "senders", being able to send out information more than they can receive information back. Rarely, a telepath may be good at both abilities.

Planes of Existence

February 2nd, 2005 (08:44 am)

current mood: working

I've gone through all of these books on mythology, Aleister Crowley, ritual magick, spirit summoning, faith healing, and at least nine major religions to come up with this cosmology.

Why, yes, I am obsessive.

Also, I'm rather proud of what I've come up with. More coming soon!

Planes of Existence

Physical Plane
The physical realm is the normal, everyday world of scientifically identified matter and energy. It also contains the emotional and mental sub-planes. These tend to leave stronger impressions on the other planes than the actual physical body, but they are only aspects of the physical world and don't exist idependent of it. The physical plane and the two sub-planes attached to it make up the ordinary "shell" that most people are aware of. In a normal death, the physical body is the first to die, followed by the emotional and mental "bodies."

Etheric Plane
This is the plane in which most preturnatural beings interact with humanity. It forms an energetic matrix that in a distorted sort of way copies the physical plane. It borrows heavily from the emotional and mental planes, so what is observed here may not be what physically exists. In a normal death, after shedding the physical shell a mortal will experience the Second Death on this plane, shedding this echo of the physical. Sometimes, a mortal avoids the Second Death and becomes an etheric revenent, which may remain as a ghost, noncorporeal vampire, or other being. However, these other beings are still capable of achieving the Second Death--usually as the result of actions by mortals.

Astral Plane
This plane is further removed from the physical world, so doesn't suffer the distortions that the etheric plane does. A being on the astral plane sees things exactly as they are physically, but with training and power can also be aware of what is seen on the etheric plane without any distortions or confusion. In a normal death, this is the point when death becomes more individualized. Before the Third Death, reincarnation may occur. Or, alternately, a being may pass through the Third Death and enter paradise by joining Spirit. A very, very few beings reject this Third Death and Spirit, becoming demons.

Spiritual Plane
This is what is entered into after the Third Death. This is the world of souls in their purest form. This is, essentially, God. Spirit is within everything, but not everything is Spirit. Only after shedding everything that isn't Spirit--the physical, etheric, and astral bodies--can a being enter into pure communion with God and be at utter peace, forever in contact with all loved ones that have also ascended. "New" souls may be borrowed from Spirit, but Spirit is never diminished and never grows. Spirit is eternal.
