nothing happens by accident when you are dealing with-in and with out of our normal realms ,woody.there is always a reason or a lesson to be learned
from it never take things as they appear to be.from what is shown here it looks more like a[ man -leopard] neither man nor animal a combination of
both . earlier a poster gave some info concerning AFRICA ,they thought that it was connected in some way .at one time in our past history there was
once what they call a cult -dedicated to the cat it was their belief that they never died and that they always came back as one -remember the movie
cat people ; watch it again and let us know what you feel ;the feelings can be quite intense.
i wonder if 1 of your power animals is one of the great cats hint hint .
my 2 favorites are the tiger and the grizzly ,both are incredibly fast and powerful.
have a good day woody ,and look a litle deeper.
Hey there picrat,
Wow it's been a long time ... great to hear from you.
Thanks for this post ... sometimes we need reminding of the most obvious things around us.
Interesting that you came up with the 'man - leopard'
combination ... leopards seem to be cropping up in my life rather a lot lately (not
literally of course)
... although some years ago I had a very lucid dream about the sacred place that I go to up on the moors near my home, to
celebrate some of the Sabbats (with a fellow 'solitary')
In the dream we had completed our ritual and I had gone behind some ferns and bracken to answer a call of nature *blushes ... I was just about to
assume the position when I heard a deep, guttural growl and rustle in the bracken behind me ... I turned just in time to see a huge black leopard
pounce at me and wrap it's massive paws around me ... as it opened it's jaws I could even feel it's breath on my face ... at that point I woke
myself up !
Needless to say I have never gone for a pee in the bushes since (anywhere )
Now there are a couple of things that I feel are important about this 'dream'
[b#1 I rarely recall any dreams and when I do they are very lucid ... in full colour and using all my senses ... they tend to have a premedative
quality but in a symbollic way that I don't usually understand until after the event.
The next time we went up onto the moors after my 'dream'
we never got chance to perform our Sabbat ritual for a couple of reasons
... firstly when we arrived there were some people nearby who had been walking on the moors and left their car parked nearby ... we had to wait for
them to leave ... secondly just as they piled into their car another car (a large, black car with tinted windows)
, came crawling down the
winding road and pulled-up a short distance from where we were parked.
This was just unheard of and we couldn't believe there was so much activity going on ... activity that meant we just had to sit tight and hope this
second car would soon be on it's way.
Well we sat and we waited and because the windows to this big black car were tinted we couldn't see who was inside ... after about 30mins a man
wearing a long black overcoat got out of the driver side ... as he did an internal light came on and you could see there was no-one else in the
Anyhoo, this guy walks around the other side of the car to the back passenger door and opens it ... he then spends a couple of minutes apparently
struggling to get something out of the back seat (of course because this is happening on the other side of the car we can't really see what's
... eventually he walks to the back of the car and opens the boot (trunk)
then returns to the farside door and picks up what
looks like a large, black dustbin bag with some weight to it ... puts it in the boot closes it ... and the back passenger door then comes back around
to the drivers door and gets back in the car.
We had watched all this in silence but now commented on the strangeness of it all (even joked nervously about him having a dismembered body in the
and imagined that he would now be moving off ... meaning we might finally be able to get to our spot and celebrate our Sabbat without further
But the guy just sat in the car !
Again because the windows were tinted and now it was almost completely dark we couldn't see anything that he might be doing inside his car so we sat
a while longer ... and so did he.
Eventually we decided to go for a little ride around for half hour or so and hope that he would be gone on our return.
We returned and the big, black car was still in situ ... this place that had always had such an amazing energy suddenly felt very wrong ... so much so
that even if he'd left right then it wouldn't have felt right to perform our ritual there after that.
We waited for a while longer ... more out of curiosity now than wanting to continue with our own plans ... and throughout all this weirdness this guy
would have been aware of our presence ... we were in full view.
It was during those last few minutes of sitting there that I remembered my lucid leopard dream ... and the way the big black car had slinked round the
winding road with its engine making that low guttural rumble as it parked up that finally freaked me out enough to suggest we leave right then.
We never discovered what the guy was doing there ... but it was some time before the energy felt right in that place again ... and I know that wasn't
down to my imagination ... I truly believe my leopard dream was a symbollic premonition of this guy and his car ... and I don't even want to think
what might have been in the bag that he transferred from the backseat to the boot ... or what might have happened if we'd got out of our car that
Strange but true story (probably totally irrelevent)
... but it's the only time I've ever been scared up on the moors at night !
As for my personal power animals there are 3 ... tiger ... grey wolf ... crow
Just out of curiosity I'd be interested to hear what anyone might think about this dream and the guy in the car ... this happened about 12 yrs ago
now ... but still extremely clear in my mind.
