This weekend, I did not follow any rules of what a normal weekend should be like, instead I broke away and stayed in the blissful comfort of my home. I woke up Saturday morning and decided that I don’t have to go run today, I can go shopping next weekend, and I don’t really need to go see anyone. So I completely put off my “Spirit Week” shopping, and I completely avoided working out. So, I sat in my bed that morning and soaked up the sunshine glimmering through my window, and I listened to the soft chirping of the birds outside. As I laid on a mountain of pillows I started to think. Weekends aren’t what they used to be. Why should I have to leave this peaceful place to rush around and get stuff done? I already spend the entire week going to
Sneakily, I weave my hand around the beast iron grip, to reach for the stick. It growled at my sudden movement, but I gripped the stick, swinging it back to force it off me. The beast reacted with a forceful growl, angry at my attempts to escape. I let out a long breath before I let out a battle cry, swinging the object to slash its face.
“So, I was wondering if you wanna have dinner with me tonight. My room, 7pm? You can stay the night…” You suggest as you go and sit next your boyfriend Bellamy, giving him a flirty wink.
The aroma of freshly mowed grass was overpowering and almost overwhelming as I curved yet another ball just high above the rusted goal post of the Desert Spirit school yard. I squeezed my eyes shut in frustration. I’d spent so much time and put in so much effort just to simply be able to curve a ball into a net and after everything, my skill level seemed to amount next to nothing. My fists clenched with anger as I cursed under my breath and jogged towards the ball. Setting it down almost identically to where I’d shot the previous ball from, the ball flew wildly from my foot in desperation. It had gone farther than the first time. I threw my head back in frustration and started for the ball again, prepared to kick it harder as I got angrier. “Stay

Only this would happen to me I think to myself as I stumble around this dreadful forest. Today I decided to take a nice peaceful walk in the forest listening to the birds chirping a melody and the sun beaming down on me but my klutz of a self just had to get lost. I have been walking around aimlessly for hours now and the sun has gone down so it has gotten quite chilly and dark out. My phone happens to have no service out here, I can not even call my family to let them know where I am, they must be worried sick. To calm myself down I take a deep refreshing breath the air around me, smelling distinctly of pine and mildew
My flyer3000 landed on an area of dark green, soft blades after flying for 60 hours. The captain calls this place earth, whatever that means. In the distance, I hear voices that sound similar to my family’s except these voices are higher in pitch and fast in pace. If one does not listen closely, these little voices become high-pitched jumbled noises that make no sense. I peek over this tall and wide brown object that prevents me from moving closer to the voices. The sight surprises me. My captain showed us pictures of humans but none of them were miniature versions. There were many tiny humans of different colors running around with pointy cone-shaped head toppers. These looked dangerous, but no one seemed bothered to take them off. I also
The Shamanic belief is that everything's alive and carries a power and wisdom within it. Power animals are essential component of the Shamanic belief. They believe that everyone has power animals that reside with everyone, adding to their power and protection. The animal gives protection from illnesses, acting similarly to a guardian angel.
The video titled “Spirit at Work: Sidd Bobb explicitly mentions that spirituality allows for the entirety of the human person (both their identity and history) into practice and incorporate it in a positive way. Sid Bobb further states that one’s spirituality should be used for the betterment of the earth, where one should strive to do no harm. Another explicitly poignant statement made in the video “Spirituality,” wherein the German Students state that spirituality involves believing in something without any scientific proof validating that belief. This also implies that the only truths worth believing in are those truths, which have been scientifically proven. The explicit factor that speaks to my own sense of spirituality is the need to
I run, run, run, from the thing that haunts me most, But I can’t run away from the never-changing sway. Manulaplited by the ever-present ghost. This tempo that drives me always reminds me of the life I've thrown away.
n antiquity, people forcefully believed in a tangible spirit world. The practice of being hysterical and possessed appears to have occurred as an everyday happening and ‘being filled with lust’ became known as a sign of having a ‘religious experience’ described as a ‘sacred or divine frenzy.’ As mentioned, even aristocratic, Roman women became shameless during such festivals as Bacchanalia, by being immersed in possession by the “spirits of lust;” calling the attack as being overwhelmed with religion. Indeed, the ancient Orphic Hymns connect being “religious” as being possessed by Pan. Numerous references chiefly recognize Pan as being the main provider of this ‘religious’ infilling.
One wonderful summer day, I was reading a Forgotten Realms book on the porch. I got so involved in the book, I wasn’t aware of anything going on around me. I still don’t know exactly what happened, but I think I imagined what was happening in the book so well, an evil drow priestess appeared for an instant. She wasn’t there for long, but she was there long enough to turn me into a cat. When my family found me, I was on the doorstep, meowing and trying to get in the house.
Leaves crunched beneath her feet, the night sky shimmering. The crinkle of paper sounded, as she flipped the pages in her journal. The forest was beautiful, but quiet. If she did this, however, it would never be quiet again. She must do this. Her dark hair was pulled up in a lazy bun, so it could fall out any moment.
