New Contest

OK, It's been awhile and I've added some new friends since the last time. So tonight, before I leave work I'm going to post a new contest. 20 or more questions all about me. I'm posting it later in the day so everyone will have a chance.

Prizes: A piece of jewelry of your choosing (necklace, bracelet, earrings, ring) custom designed by me. Certain restrictions apply: If it's a ring or earrings, no 14 kt gold. It's cheaper now but I can't afford to give it away. No diamonds for the same reason. I do use gold beads in my other designs though so it's permissable in necklaces or bracelets. Also, certain stones may at the time of winning be unattainable so allow for substitutions.


1. Anyone on LJ is eligible
2. Most information could be found by looking through my journal entries but could also have been from comments I've left to people
3. Contest will have a definite ending time.
4. Prize will be awarded to first person with all answers correct.
5. If no one gets them all correct, prize will be awarded to first person with most answers correct.
6. In the event of a tie, prize will be awarded to multiple winners.

OK, that's all for now. I'll post the contest at approximately 5:30 pm central standard time.

carry on.

Make em incredibly simple so that even I can win.

You should have a better shot than most since you've known me longer and actually met me before.

Your comment only took like 8 hours to get to me. I think my server may be screwed a bit.

Contest should be easy for you though.

Look for an email from me. If you don't get it, I've mailed the wrong box. :)

For some reason my address at dierker@frontiernet.net seems to be down right now. I'm not sure if they are having server trouble or what. So if you sent it there, it could be awhile before i get it.

No fun!
I was wondering if your offer still stood.
My boss was adamant that I should go... so there went that excuse. Now, all I'd have to do is figure a way out there.

I thought you had that ritual to do? I told Jay the other day I was going to pass on the tickets but if I can catch him tonight I'll see if he gave them to anyone else.

I figured it was too little, too late. I think my coven would let me do an early performance of the ritual. Still, don't worry about it, if it's a hassle. :)

No hassle. I'd love to get you out here. He offers me tickets all the time. Usually it's to something I'd rather not see though. I'll see what he says if I can track him down.

I have a question. How do you find your true spirit animal? I have always been drawn to wolves, but I don't know if it's because I find them beautiful, mysterious, peaceful or if it's because I'm afraid of them. I've only seen one wolf in "person", although it was a small zoo in BigBear Mountain. It was a beautiful white wolf named Lakota... I could have watched her all day. So beautiful. I felt peaceful just being in her presence. She wouldn't come to the fence, but she would stare at me as I talked to her and when she howled it brought tears to my eyes. The zoo was empty and I literally watched her the whole time while my husband went and looked at all the other animals. I had no desire to see anything else.
I had my camera with me, but for some reason... I just couldn't bring myself to take her picture.
Even though it was summer and she still had her thick coat, she was still the most beautiful creature I've ever seen.

I often dream of wolves... but oddly they are always terrifying dreams. Being chased or hunted by a black wolf. I even started to write a story based on one of those dreams... hmm I should find that story. It's years old, but I still remember that dream like it happened yesterday.

When I was a bit younger I was extremely "interested" in totem animals, wicca, the healing powers of stones etc... but oddly I can't remember ANYTHING. I remember I used to read books all the time about spirtuality because I found it so facinating. I wish I had stuck with it... learned more. My memory has become frightfully bad over the years.

Anyhow, I'm rambling now.

Well, Spirit animals come to us in a variety of ways. They also move in and out of our lives at various times. But the ones who are with you for life generally find a way to get you to notice them. If you have bad dreams about them it is not neccessarily a bad thing. They may just be trying to get you to notice them. My friend Okema Whitehawk has a Bear totem and she was always terrified of Bears. Whenever she would see them in dreams or visions, she would run away. So once in a vision, she was walking down a trail and a big black bear appeared before her, She had nowhere to run or hide so she just shut her eyes and hoped the bear would leave her alone. The bear rose up on it's hind legs and screamed at her, "Why do you deny me?" She opened her eyes and looked at the bear who started to talk to her in a calm voice and explained he was her Spirit guide and she need not be afraid of him. So now whne she sees Bear in visions she knows not to be afraid.

From your description, I'd say Wolf is a definite possibility for you and maybe you just need to find a way to calm your fears and talk to the wolf in your dreams to find out what it is trying to tell you.
