What I read in the encounters with death section at the westgate site suprised me..one person, can't remeber the name talked for awhile about crawling into someone's tomb..well, call me old fashioned but if that would have been my grandfather orgrandmother's tomb, you would be having an encounter with azrael quite quickly, and in a most brutal nature...as i have has several experiences with spectres and ghosts i am most respectful to their resting places..that is not to say i don't think you should'nt be in a cemetary, just that a little common sense is required in such a place..I would not want someone crawling in my bed at night! Due to certain past issues, i will not usually go into such a place unless there is a purpose..like someone I know buried inside..keep our cemetaries sacred...good day to you all

well, my encounters with death and spirits, mostly, started when i was about 4. it's strange how much i remember of it all really. when i was 4, my grandfather died...the day he died, i was too young to know what was going on, but i couldn't go with the rest of my family so they made me stay with the family upstairs, and i remember a dark figure (note: i don't remember exactly on how he or she lead me) leading me to the kitchen where that family was watching tv and as i walked in, i looked at the tv that everyone was looking at and i saw my grandpa there and i was so confused cause i knew he didn't belong there and no one else saw it, later my mom told me what had happened and i thought about what i saw. a year later, i was looking for my blanket in my grandma's closet and when i opened the door, my grandpa was there, i told my mom and grandma but they didn't believe me (when i was about 14 my mom told me she just didn't want to believe her daughter was given the same gift as my grandma and great grandma had -_-). anyhoo, for years i saw him and knew he was protecting me, but when i was ten, i was lying in my mom's bed, turned around and my grandpa was standing there next to a dark figure that was a bit difficult to make out, but my grandpa looked at me, looked at him and they both nodded and then my grandpa looked at me and smiled and left and i haven't seen him since but because of that time and the nodding...i knew he was okay and knew what he meant by it...he knew he couldn't watch over me forever the way he was and acknowledged that he had to go. i don't remember the feeling that Death gave or any of that that i have read on this site, the only feeling i do know i felt, was comfort and knowledge that i had to deal with everything on my own from then on and to not be afraid of what MAY come. it was hard after that, i realized that my grandpa definitely was protecting me because of all of the spirits that haunted my mentality and me alone. it was hard and still is on occasion when my room decides to make a loud boom that no one else hears despite our incredibly tiny house. but despite all that, i'm not afraid because of that, and everytime i start to get scared, i think of that and i know i shouldn't be afraid. this site has helped me realize a lot of things that i've seen and felt in my 16 years and i'm definitely grateful...it's comforting. thanks for that <3.

Having family visits is good. I think almost everyone has a family member assigned to them to watch over them. Sometimes I think Death will bring a family member back with him to help you back to the gates. Or to let you know another in your family will be going. At least that is how my family works. I know that some one is going when I see or smell my granma Esther around. My older brother used to astral travel alot when I stayed with him at his house, and  I smelled her around all the time.

Had a different dream of sorts lately not sure what to think of it. Burzum doesnt think Death was at all involved, I dont know what to think. I was suspended in I guess what you could say glass like water and I could not breathe. The water encasement was light blue. I was flailing in my dream. But at the same time, I could feel my eyes wide open in my physical body and I couldn't move or breath at all. It seemed my eyes were sinking into my head and all the squishy parts of my physical body were deflating. It seemed I was dreaming with my eyes wide open. I have never felt so paralyzed before, I even felt like my body was going numb and my hands were trying to curl up. I couldn't feel my heart beating in either dream or wake state. I think the only thing that calmed me down was that I kept thinking to my self that I need to relax and  [/I]slowly wake up. :scatter:  I dont know tell me what you think eh??

sometimes, i think, some things that seem supernatural, or divine can be explained on a cold scientific slab..not always, by no means...perhaps your body was reacting to the cyclic rythms of the flow of water, inside your body in a mechanical nature? Maybe this made the mind visualise this...sometimes we can hear the sounds of our own gears, if you know what i am saying..sepecially in sleep

I assure you, Teddyhorse,  that this is a place where we keep Death and the dead sacred. We do not desecrate graves, we consider that not only disgusting but an insult and injury to our beloved Azrael.
We do not go rudely "crawling" into thier beds uninivited...
I'll leave this up to Leilah, Our Lady Death to comment upon.
Many of us here have different ways of empathizing and communicating on some level with Death, as either an entity or as an energy. Many of us have had experiences ever since we were young, Many of us "awaken" when we are older. All of us have a reason for being here, and this is a place of healing and learning and positive interactions.
I hope you learn alot here, and find what you have been seeking~

well, i can assure you that i meant no insult to anyone here and called no one a grave robber! I know what it can be like to get wrapped up in the heat of passion! Also, though, my heat of passion would be very brutal and hot if i caught someone doing that to a beloved's tomb..just as his passion would be considered hot so would mine..we are but creatures of our passions, and our passions would conflict, neither being wrong in itself...I am very sorry if i have overposted or seemed  pompously verbal here in this topic..i meant no harm, and i agree that there is a reason i was attracted here..i am also a big fan of Lee Dorian, which i came here through a cathedral link but knew of Leilah, sort of..i just wanted to get some things out and am curious about you guys' philosophies..thanks

And I meant no insult to you, either. Not at all.
I was just making the point that we are not just a bunch of kinky necrophiliacs getting our rocks off.
Our bond with Death is spiritual.
Many of us come here because we have had experiences we seek to understand (be it dreams, astral projections, communication with spirits, fear of dying, and sometimes even dying.) Many of us are fascinated, and even enthralled  by the thought of our own big day, when we get to experience our own bodily death ourselves, and what happens after. Some have a slight fear, and sometimes overwhelming fear of death, but have found peace and understanding here, even on some occasions those who are actually in the process of dying. Some of us think of  the body as just a vessel, a vehicle to get us through life and life experiences that will cultivate and enrich our spirits, perhaps, who knows? It's like a car to get us from point A to point B but with alot of learning along the way. Flesh is not who we really are.  Many of us know we have been here before, and have had past life experiences.
And Yes, many of us find Death erotic, and even romanticize it but not quite in the way you seem to think. I'll let someone else explain that one to you. I haven't had that experience first hand, and not only do I not want to step on anyones toes, I lack the eloquence  to explain it as nicely as someone else would.

Welcome Teddy.... I think that your misunderstanding of what we 'do' here comes from the fact that you haven't really read any of our material nor read through the entire website...but that's okay, we do occassionally get some "cold sign-ups" here. That's what it's all about, replacing fear with understanding. :rose:

My question to you would be what is meant by a statement you made in your original post here and I quote ;

Quote

What were these "past issues"? Perhaps they serve to turn your understanding of what we do here into a different sort of animal.

Like Saintantress said, all of here have some form of intimate spiritual bond with an the Death entity (by many names), and to many of us, that is a consuming passion. We have learned that what lies in a tomb is no longer what once lived in that body, and to some, that body can become a "vessel"...an open channel, if you will, through which the Spirit of Death can commune with one. :rose:

As far as "keeping our cemeteries sacred". If it weren't for the folks on this board, many cemeteries would quickly become forgotten places for the forlorn and depressed.

On another note folks, This is the "Notes about this forum" forum.......Please begin new topics as this was only designed to give an intro to this entire part of the forums.  :offt:

Teddy, please take some time and read through our entire forum(s) here and I think you'll get a better handle on what we're all about.

Again, welcome aboard! rip

I dunno if this is a good spot...

But, the fallowing night I woke up from almost having an astral travel I truned my head there was a female black shadow (straddling) sitting over my body. Scaring me with such a suprise I woke up out of my astral state. I wonder what of this meeting??

while I'm sure that this needs another location to discuss properly I will answer the Dark Female question there.

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this question. What is the approximate limit to how long our narration or what happened be? Is it the maximum post length? Or is it less?  For my encounter might make more sense if I include a story entwined with my encounter. Of course my whole life sorta connects to it in a way I never really noticed till last night. At least if I don't remember noticing.

I have short term memory problems, and much of what I once remembered now only surfaces with great trouble. I think that may be a gift in disguise.
