I've been practicing ringmaking (jewelry) using "lost wax" centrifugal casting, as a hobby. I haven't made any for a while due to a busy work
schedule, but I woke up on July 7 with a strong urge to make a ring. I formed, and polished a wax model, and prepped everything for casting the ring.
Everything was ready to cast the ring at 6:45 pm. At this point, I don't understand why, but I intentionally cut my hand a little tiny bit, I put a
drop of blood onto the gold, along with a strand of my hair. In my crucible, I brought the ring to it's melting temperature and watched it come
together in the mirrorlike ball of molten metal, and then I spit in the gold. It hissed and bounced steamed like crazy, but it did not evaporate! I
thought it was rather odd. I was readying to release the trigger on the wound casting arm, and I thought it would be fun to recite the classic "One
ring to rule tham all..." phrase of Lord of the rings, something I'm sure every fantasy novel fan and nerd alike has said over every keyring and
donut they've ever seen...I wanted to say those words, but when I spoke, something entirely different came out of my mouth. At a near whisper, I
spoke "One ring to heed them all, One ring to fault them, One ring to light and shadow call, and by seven sevens halt them.".. At this point I
laughed out loud at myself, thinking "perhaps I've been watching Lord of the Rings too much." and I went to cast the ring normally. As I let the
swing arm of the casting machine go, I retreated a fair distance to avoind any accidental splatter of molten gold, and my eye glanced the clock. It
was EXACTLY 7:07pm
I felt a little eerie yet excited as I thought about what I had said for no real reason, and counted the 7 sevens of this ring. It was July,
the seventh month, the seventh day, 7pm, and the seventh minute of the hour of the year 2007. Now I know that is only "five" sevens, but I
remembered I had cast the ring out of 14 karat gold.
All in all this sounds like a strange blend of jewelry making, and too much fantasy movie watching. But here is what's odd:
In the weeks following my crafting this ring, I have seen things in my peripheral vision, usually while either driving, or at night when things are
still. I see dark creatures "hiding" behind poles or running across the road. They look at me, and I feel at first a feeling of absolute burning
hatred & rage directed at me. When I look directly towards the things, moving them from my peripheral vision to my direct sight, this feeling of
hatred turns into an almost palpable sense of panic and fear, and the creatures/people/whatever they are take off running away at blinding speed, or
dissappear entirely. I am doing nothing out of the ordinary when this happens, usually trying to fall asleep, or driving to work.
Under the same circumstances, and in the same manner, I will see a very small, still glow of light in my peripheral vision, and feel a strong
sense of vigilance, almost like a bodyguard is there. When I look at it, it dissipates almost immediately, but I am left feeling stronger & at peace.
I have not had both of these experiences at the same time, it is always one or the other.
In the past weeks some weird things have happened I have woken up at night and found a HUGE cockroach crawling on my back. I have found MANY small
cockroaches in my truck for no reason. There have been a few Bees that keep landing near my front door and dying, & there is a new cat who keeps
coming around my fence, yet taking off as soon as it sees me. Also a dove (which my family raised from a chick and banded before it flew away in June)
flew back to my house and has taken up nest in a tree outside my house. It only leaves when I leave, & comes back when I come home. I can't help but
wonder if the ring on my finger has something to do with it...
Has anyone had any experience like this? Have I accidently created some kind of magic item? Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!
