You can call me 'BlackSun' :)

BlackSun
Hey everyone,

I don't know where to start! But I would like to keep my identity as a secret, and wish to go by the name of 'Black Sun' as a reference to the Mesoamerican myth. I hope you folks wouldn't mind :-)

I am here to learn and share my experiences. I specialize in different divinatory methods (divination is my first love!), although I am very much open to learning and practicing new techniques. I'm into dreams and crystals as well.

My practice has changed over the years. I started out dabbling with witchcraft, then I got into Wicca, and then I decided to become eclectic - but this was years ago.

Now, I would say that my practice is more 'shamanic' in nature... although I am no shaman! I simply incorporate shamanic elements into my system, and wish to explore traditional Filipino practices of healing and divination. (I am Filipina after all, but I communicate better in English).

I used to study the myths of cultures I'm interested in (i.e. Ancient Greek and Egypt), but have since shifted my focus to tribal practices and animistic cultures.

Hopefully, I can be of help to your community at Nature Oz and also learn new things :-)

Welcome Black Sun! Would love to learn from you since I'm mostly self taught and my knowledge is not as extensive as I would like it to be :)
May the light guide you to where you need to go and not where you want to be.

Hello Gilla! Nice to meet you too :-)

There's nothing wrong with being self-taught at all! Although it does pay to have mentors/teachers or people who are generally more experienced than we are.

I am both self-taught and informally mentored by my partner :-) But for the most part, she leaves me alone because we both have our own stuff as individuals. To each his own, as they say.

P.S. Sorry I accidentally sent this as a private message instead of a direct reply to this thread :-o

Hopefully, there are things I can share which you and others can learn from. But I am also still a student in many ways, so I would also appreciate any insight from you or anyone who can humbly share their own learnings and experiences :-)

Thank you for the welcome

I currently combine Aztec belief system (and some of their practices) with traditional Filipino animism. I intend to explore Bon Shamanism soon.

I already have resources and people I may be able to learn from, I just don't have the time because of work.

*** It is worth noting that the Aztecs were NOT a shamanic tribe. They were a complex society with a religious system - they had priests, not shamans. However, many of their rituals suggest that prior to their establishment of a society, they must have been a shamanic tribe.

Thank you for your response. Is Bon shamanism similar to the practices of a Lhapa and Ngakpa? I guess your familiar with the use of phurba. I'm really interested to know more of the use of this instrument in healing. Nice meeting you here I wish I could learn more about your shamanic practices. I also study shamanism and a student of phil esoteric. I met a Peruvian curandera before who specializes in ayahuasca and kambo ceremony....

Hi BlackSun, I agree it's helpful to have mentors :) Can't divulge my interest fully to the people around me because they're not that open about these kinds of things. I am lucky to know a few people who are into them, and whom I can learn from but mostly, I'm left to learn things on my own :)
