I'm really excited about being on such a forum. Lately I have been neglecting my spiritual side and need to give it some attention. This looks like the perfect place. And a bonus? A get to meet new people with possibly similar ideas! :D
I am called Elfie, or ElfSeeker. The story behind my screenname goes as follows: I had a dream about my dead German grandmother. The setting of the dream was at the house where I grew up. I was coming down the stairs into the lobby when I looked up and saw my grandmother standing in front of the closed door. She was somewhat transparent. I exclaimed, "Grandma, what are YOU doing here?!" Because she was dead and supposed to have moved on. Other family members were walking around me, and none of them could see her. Only I did. I came to the bottom of the stairs and leaned against the railing. She said, "Seek the music of the Elves." Walked into the parlor and disappeared.
Since then I have been trying to make sense of the dream. Many years later I decided to see a psychic and she went through the usual laying of the tarot cards, and talked about things. She then asked if I had any questions. The dream popped into my mind and I asked her about it. She laughed and said, "Isn't it obvious? You're an ELF. I don't even need to see your ears to know they are pointed!" I was wearing a hat.
This set me off on a great deal of self-exploration. I think by Elf she meant Fairy, as Elves are a type of Fairy. I, personally, resonate more with Pixies and Dryads but I understood where she was coming from. And that's enough of a story for now. :)
