Are Your Thoughts Your Own?

secretsoftheserpent

I have had several questions about our thoughts.  If I say our brains are only receivers, where do are thoughts come from?  We all have thoughts.  Good thoughts and bad thoughts.  For the majority of us, our thoughts are very negative, fearful and anxious.  We all have thoughts that keep us from falling asleep or they wake us up in the middle of the night.  We as a human race worry.  Is this just part of being human?  Thought is an energy.  You are energy.  When it comes to energy likes attract.  Whatever your energy is, you will attract those thoughts.  You can monitor this by realizing the thoughts you are having is showing the energy you have at that moment or period of time.

Soul Dreamers

The area of Pomerania, the north-western part of modern Poland, is symbolically surrounded by three major rivers: the Vistula from the east, the Oder from the west, the and Noteć from the south. The northern barrier of this post-glacial area is the southern coast of Baltic Sea. One of the dominant features of this type of landscape is numerous, relatively small lakes and a predominantly longitudinally-oriented network of rivers. As drinking water reserves, as well as habitats of species utilized by the early medieval economy, they must have played an important role in the cultural landscape and religious ideas.

In the following article, we intend to take a closer look at the significance of water in pre-Christian Pomeranian beliefs of the early medieval period, i.e. from the arrival of the Slavs to the region (ca. 6th–7th century ce) to the mid-13th century (which conventionally mark the end of the early Middle Ages…
