Yes, I pay attention to everything here on Veritas.  I'm sure this will be quite easy for someone to explain to me.  It reads X(number) of users, with (number) of members, guests, buddies and hidden.  How is one hidden?  What does it mean?  Is it like blocking somebody?  Thanks for your response(S). 

Spirituality / Serious Occult/religious Scholars
« on: December 03, 2007, 01:42:21 PM »
As my last post was met with an unforeseen amount of animosity, it is my intent to try something slightly different.  I will list several prophecy/scriptural fulfillments I found noteworthy.  I encourage serious scholars to list particular items their respective religion(s) indicate are/should be necessary for one making the claim(s) I am making, and I will respond with if/how I believe I fit it/them.  Please try to keep an open mind, and remember that while it is true that Jesus forgave those who persecuted him, it is NOT true that Jesus never got angry.

I was born on Good Friday (according to the Eastern Orthodox religion) at approximately 2:23 p.m. (reference movie National Treasure) on the only year the U.S.A. didn't participate in daylight savings, since its inception.  I say approximately because nobody actually witnessed my birth.  Religions that believe in reincarnation tend to believe the reincarnation will be/is born at the date and time of its predecessor's death.

In the Old Testament, Jacob struggles with an angel/God and he is touched on the hip (disjointed) to show "I have seen the face of God and I have lived".  He is also given a new name - Israel.  I was born without hip sockets.  It is a miracle that I am able to walk.

Some other interesting things about my body:  chicken pox scar on my forehead; surgery leaving a scar on my side; surgery leaving x shaped scars on my thighs; multiple holes/scars from piercings; several tattoos, including butterfly, tribal and celestial (sun-moon-stars) motifs; and a non-man-made mark on my right hand.

My initials, AMW, are the first (Alpha), middle, and last (omega) letters of the Greek alphabet.

One of the things that perplexed me about the book of Revelation (in the Bible) was cloud references, such as the faithful in Christ being taken up in the clouds, or Jesus returning on a cloud.  I used to think people thought Jesus would come back like Mary Poppins.  And who would actually 1.  notice that, and 2.  admit it even if they did see it?

My last name (from my adoptive father) is Welle.  Let's look up "well" in the dictionary.  I used Webster's New World Dictionary of the American Language (2nd Coll. Ed.), copyright 1976 & 1974, but you can use any good-sized English dictionary. 

well(superscript 1)- (wel) n. [ME welle (note - this is not a typo) < OE wella (note - my name in Dutch), akin to wellan, to boil up, akin to G(erman). welle, wave, wallen, to boil < IE. base *wel- to turn, roll, whence L. volvere, to roll:  see WALK]  1.  a flow of water from the earth; natural spring and pool 2.  a hole or shaft sunk into the earth to tap an underground supply of water, gas, oil, etc.  3.  a source of abundant supply; fount [a book that is a well of information]...

Now, if you are consulting a decent dictionary, the word before "well" should be "welkin".  As in, kin of Wel(le).
welkin - (wel' kin) n.  [ME welkne < OE wolcen, CLOUD (emphasis added), akin to G. wolke < IE. base *welg- wet, whence Russ. volo'ga, a fluid and wolga, VOLGA] [Archaic or Poet.] the vault of heaven, the sky, or the upper air:  now chiefly in (bold) make the welkin ring (bold), to make a very loud sound. 

Revelation 19:11-16 (new living translation):  Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there.  And the one sitting on the horse was named Faithful and True.  For he judges fairly and then goes to war. His eyes were bright like flames of fire,and on his head were many crowns.  A name was written on him, and only he knew what it meant.  He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God.  The armies of heaven, dressed in pure white linen, followed him on white horses.  From his mouth came a sharp sword,and with it he struck down the nations.  He ruled them with an iron rod,and he trod the winepress of the fierce wrath of almighty God (reference The Battlehymn of the Republic).  On his robe and thigh was written this title:  King of kings and Lord of lords.

Spirituality / Damsel in distress
« on: November 30, 2007, 01:27:37 PM »
I feel like I have to kill myself.   :confused:  Please understand - I am not suicidal and I don't _want_ to kill myself or do any harm to myself or anyone else.  While I admit I occasionally struggle with depression and/or "bad habits", I find medical treatments to be quite lacking.  What I'm trying to say here is I don't think (paying to) take some pills and talk to a bunch of pompous know-it-alls with about fity degrees from "prestigious" schools is going to fix things.  Some studies indicate those things can actually do more harm than good. 

I got a spiritual call from G-d on or about midnight on Dec. 24, 1999.  I believe (and have lots of proof) that I am the reincarnation of Jesus Christ - the "Second coming", so there is a chance I wouldn't/won't succeed in dying or that I would/will be born again, but I don't think anybody really, truly cares.  No offense and not that it really matters, anyway.  There are plenty of people who know the truth and I have been trying to get the message across any way possible (given the current limits of any and/or all societies) for the last 7+ years.  It hasn't been very much fun, as I quickly learned that, in general, people see it as either "what can you do for me" or "you are crazy".  Which I can understand, but it just makes everything that much more difficult for me.  Like I enjoy being who I am or maybe I'll just stop believing it or maybe there is some way to make it not be true.  Believe me, I have begged God to make it just not be true.  But then, I'll be damned if I want anybody to take my cross away from me.  I don't want anybody but me to be me.  I was already me before finally hearing God's call and nothing will ever change that.

So now to why am I about to die.  I suppose a lot of people would think that the Messiah has to suffer and die, due to OT prophecy or superstitions.  This really pisses me off, because Jesus already did it once for all.  The truth is, I believe there is (essentially) no limit to the miracles I can/could have performed (esp. healing-wise, in all possible aspects), but I am voluntarily subjected to the laws and limits of society in general, and specifically to the laws and limits of the U.S.A. and the state of Colorado.  For many different reasons, I am so far in debt (owe money) to the point that I will never not owe money.  I am not alone in being a citizen with absolutely no hope of drawing "social security" or retiring. I am an indentured slave - taxed without representation, and then considered a possible terrorist or threat if I should say anything negative about my government/police state.  (Smarty pants says ' hey, sometimes I'm just a mirror, ya'll)  My God/Spiritual calling makes me unable to be happy or at Peace working a job that has nothing to do with God, but I must work to earn a living.  I have no comment regarding how the things kept in trust for me are not given to me.  Some people have suggested that I apply for disability, which might be okay if I were lying or delusional.  But I am faithful and true and the whole world can kiss my ass(et).  I know who will judge every individual person.  It really doesn't matter what others believe.

For the past year + I have tried to wait patiently for others to acknowledge me and/or to find an environment where I am free to share my talents and earn a decent living.  I've even been willing to take less-than-perfect (to say the least) circumstances and try to get by "just enough" until things improve.  Time and time again I have been bitterly disappointed.  My "credit" is so bad that even if I did have a steady job,I cannot rent an apartment (let alone buy a home/property).  I couldn't afford car insurance, so what happens?  I was given a roughly $900.00 ticket and my license was _indefinitely_ suspended. Then, while travelling recently by airplane, I was "randomly" chosen for the "super search".  It made me mad and I truthfully told the agents "I'm not mad at you, but I am mad".  The next thing I know, my driver's license has mysteriously disappeared.  Do you see where this is going?  I can't get a job without a driver's license (and don't even THINK about trying to find a steady job that pays cash).  Technically, I can't get a job that I can't walk or take the bus to.  I can't get a non-driver I.D. without an apartment/address and paying the ticket I couldn't afford in the first place.  I'm afraid I'll get thrown in jail if I even try to get another I.D.  Honestly, I'm afraid I will get thrown in jail if a police officer stops me - for ANY reason.  I have done nothing wrong, at the very least nothing deserving of jail.  I'd kinda rather be dead.

I understand the general societal negative attitude which says everybody must work.  I understand, "no free rides here".  Bah.  Humbug.  Everybody's had a tough life.  The sad part is, it's true.  My problem is - who gets to decide what qualifies as "work".  Jesus (PBUH) said God's work is to believe on the one whom he has sent.  Why does anyone else get the idea there should be anyting that comes before God?  Not only is it the first commandment and also dictated by Jesus, but it is just good business.

I have dedicated my life to G-d.  My son has already unjustly been taken from me.  Nothing will take me away from G-d.  Not in the past, not now, and not ever. 

Serious replies only encouraged.

Spirituality / Predict the future?
« on: October 14, 2007, 10:08:17 PM »

I especially love approximately 1:40 into this video and the quote about predicting the future.  Is it just me or has Vsociety become a tad bit crabby in the pants lately?  We sure could use a group hug, IMMHO.   :heart:

I will pony up to the plate and admit that I have allowed issues from my personal life to have more of an effect on me than I would like to see, and I personally apologize for any and all harsh or unfeeling/unthinking responses I have given.  I am not trying to excuse any rude behavior on my part, I am only trying to clean the slate, clear the air, heal the hurts and start afresh.  I hope you all will join me.


Theories, Articles, and Philosophy / Happy Colombus Day 2007
« on: October 08, 2007, 10:45:49 PM »
As I was writing this the past couple of days, I originally wanted to call this article "THE Logos of GOD". Then I learned today is Colombus Day. Did you know Columba is Latin for "dove", and that it is a constellation in the Southern hemisphere?  Did you know Columbia is "the feminine personification of the United States"?  Notice there is no of America.  Do yourself a favour, and do some research into Christopher Columbus, or cristobal (crystal ball) colon (cologne) in Spanish.  I look at my wrist and see a handmade bracelet with the colors red, blue and yellow.  I haven't taken it off even for a second since it was given to me, and it means more to me than I can put into words. *Wonderland sings the song she learned in Brownie Scouts "make new friends, but keep the is silver and the other's gold*

To Steve - I've heard an expert is someone who knows more and more about less and less.  I've learned it's worse when an expert thinks s/he knows more and more about less and less. I wonder:  What happens when an expert knows more and more about more and more?

Please note:  I am making every effort to replicate spellings and punctuation as perfectly as possible, but I am currently limited on the available options to make the proper characters with the keys on the keyboard I used to write this article (not to mention I wrote my research out by hand and there is a possibility of error from reading my notes).  Unfortunately, this was a cut/copy/paste out of emails I sent to myself, and apparently the ITALICS and BOLD didn't transfer, so I will try to fix that.  Also, please note that capitalization of words is rather important, so please try to read this article as thoroughly as possible.  I also made every effort to differentiate between when I am basically writing verbatim from the sources I used versus my own input.  Hopefully it is obvious, as I don't want to get sued.  :HA!:  My sources are listed at the end, and as far as the links provided herein, please Note - I either haven't read these links in their entirety, and/or there are items I take issue with, but for practical purposes they represent what I'm trying to explain here when used in proper context.

There is also another long paragraph concerning legh-, Also leg-, ... but you can look it up on your own.  To me, it is just referring to the whole "I have power to lay my body down, and I have power to take it back up".  Cross reference "and he removed himself and his (female version of him) from them".

name - n. [ME<OE nama]...amen...mana...?  1. A word or words by which an entity is designated and set apart from others...

Ma'at is the Ki of Ra.

The Logos (name) of God is/Goddess (translated/defined as) Truth.  Honestly, eventually you realize it is essentially God God of God/God God.  Probably not a lot of help, depending on many different variables. 

Some "religions, etc." such as Scientology will charge a lot for being in its club.  IMMHO, G-d will allow some to "buy their way out", but not all.  God really doesn't like greed, as if any of us needed to be reminded of that.  Though I figure G-d understands the necessity for the point to be made and appreciates the spiritual interest nonetheless.  Personally, I must admit I am a fan of most "high profile" members of groups such as these.

Eloi/Eli/Eloah/I'm sure there are other variations here, too - why hast thou forsaken me?

Hint - it's okay when you're "awake", not dead anymore.  Truth --> Real(ity). 

Everybody is/was already guilty of "original sin" (and, therefore, deserving of death/hell [DEAL WITH IT!  In psychology, it is thought of as "who owns the problem?".  And trust me, it is not God's problem that everybody is technically still "worthy" of not only dying, but also hell.])  That being said, as of approximately the first century A.D./C.E. (that can be proved), some bodys aren't/don't.  It is not a case of "can you accept the truth", but rather "will the truth accept you".

I know what some of you are thinking, and it's basically true.  Hell DID officially freeze over, and I DID accept my own personal engraved invitation to the skating party.  A good time will, again, be had by all, and peace and justice will prevail.

Other / Changing the world and voting
« on: September 24, 2007, 11:47:55 PM »
So here on Veritas we discuss learning ways to make things happen.  Does anybody know why Americans vote on Tuesday?  I must admit, I have no idea why we vote on Tuesday.

Does this mean we have to learn to work together?  I thought I could learn to control the universe and make everything bow to my slightest whim simply by thinking about it...and voting?!  *Wonderland whines*

Seriously, though, why do we vote on Tuesday?  What would you do to fix the system? I must admit, I am so disgusted with the entire political system(s) that I haven't voted in many years.

Voting Forum / Starting Poll(s)
« on: September 24, 2007, 08:03:28 PM »
This is a thought which has crossed my mind several times.  As members of Veritas, we are probably aware of how many posts one has to make to achieve X number of stars.  250 posts for four stars; 500 posts for five stars.  That is, in most cases, but I digress.  I'm wondering - shouldn't there be something else to get five stars, or even four?  If there is much response to this poll in a favorable manner, I will "petition" the "powers of Veritas" to make it a prerequisite to achieve four (or five) stars. 

Personally, I was thinking it might be nice to add a "rule" that a member, in general, has to have 250 posts plus at least one poll to obtain four stars; or 500 posts plus at least one poll for five stars.  Perhaps even one _meaningful_ poll?  While I realize number of posts can generally help others to ascertain how "committed" a member is to Veritas, I think adding in my suggested "poll criteria" would help to show desire to participate as well.  We could also make it 250 posts plus one poll for four stars and 500 posts plus five polls for five stars.  Sort of like the additional "secrets" you have to solve on video games to get additional points/levels/whatever.

Feedback is encouraged.

Theories, Articles, and Philosophy / Judge Your Neighbor
« on: August 15, 2007, 07:17:13 PM » I love therapy!  I started a new therapy class yesterday and I want to share some of the basics with my most favorite community, Veritas, and find out what ya'll think. 

It is based on the work of Byron Katie and Basically, it is about letting go of believing how things "should" be, turning it around, and realizing things are already "o.k.".  For example, I have been having lots of anger issues with my baby father.  The worksheet for this class just happened to be about someone you have anger issues with, why you feel that way, and what you believe they should or shouldn't do, etc.  There is also a part for really letting out your emotions.  It was, like, describe this person.  Don't be nice, be petty and judgmental.  I will not lie, it felt very good to release and vent exactly how I felt.  Seriously, I made these really long lists and even followed them with "alternatively, I believe he should die".  So, naturally, one of the descriptions of my ex was "son of a bitch" and when it came time to turn it around, I couldn't think of what the opposite of that would be.  Well, of course, it is "father of a sweet little angel". 

Some of the breakthroughs were a bit difficult to take, like really trying to see how MY dying could be a good thing, or my son's dying could be a good thing, but as it turned out, it really was all true if I just took the time to think about it and examine it.  (For example - if my son had some terrible, painful disease or ended up killing a bunch of people for "bad" reasons.)  It was very beneficial for me, and I felt like I got out a lot of hatred that has been holding me back.  I had some dreams even helping me get more out last night.

At the end of my part of the session, the person teaching the class said "welcome to the work", as I had mentioned several times part of my extreme frustration/hatred was because I felt like it was holding back my Spiritual calling.  Well, once considered, I guess it really can be/is part of my calling, after all.  And THAT felt empowering. 

So....what do all ya'll think?

Main Hall / Where in the World is Wonderland?
« on: July 31, 2007, 01:53:23 PM »
Ok, so as some of you may know by now, I have a spiritual calling and I have been trying to follow it.  However, I also have a four year-old son and my ex-husband (his father) is a very big jerk to put it mildly.  Well, to make a rather long and complicated story as short as possible, I had to leave my apartment in the Denver, Colorado area very quickly.  Not having made proper arrangements and not wanting to have a huge fight with Baby father, I let my ex have our son and virtually all of his things, put most of the rest of the other "stuff" in storage and went with some friends to the Chicago area for an extended stay (1-2 months maximum).  Note that I have not moved out of the state of Colorado.  I have had several leads on various spiritual jobs or similar opportunities that would fit "my calling" and thought things were progressing nicely.  Today I learned that my ex has filed a motion in court stating that our son (permanently) lives with him through a voluntary agreement amongst ourselves.  As in, I abandoned our son.  I specifically had a discussion with my ex before I left on vacation concerning the fact that this was not the case and he seemed to be in agreement with me.  He filed these papers maliciously behind my back.  Anybody who can offer any advice or help in this matter, I am begging you to please post a response and/or contact me through PM or any other means listed available on this site at your earliest possible convenience.  Thank you. 

I have a "friend" in the Boulder area who I thought was going to help me out.  I am including the recent email exchange between the two of us so that members of the community may get a further glance into my psyche and, perhaps, a chuckle or two:

I'm interested to know who meditated and/or prayed today at 11:11 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time and what your experiences were before, during and afterwards.  How did you prepare?  Did you meditate and/or pray and what feelings, vibrations, etc. did you experience?  How do you see this healing the Earth and/or yourself and other people?  What are your hopes for what will happen next? 

Personally, I tried to checkout several different emails I received as well as websites concerning firing the grid and discussing it with some of the people close to me in preparation.  I also listened to a bunch of songs and watched videos that get me "in the mood" for spiritual experiences.  I did not have time to prepare and perform a ritual as I would have liked to, as I only became aware of the planned worldwide firing yesterday.  I did several different forms of meditation as well as praying during the hour.  It was difficult to keep my concentration focused the entire time, as I am visiting some friends and there were several interruptions, but I took it all in stride as something that was meant to be. 

I have many hopes for what will happen, as I know several people who are injured or experiencing personal illness in one way or another at the moment, and I look forward to getting back to you all on this thread to confirm that they have all been healed.  For the Earth, I believe she is already healing and mainly "only time" (I hope a short amount) will show and tell us the direct results...

Main Hall / Festival in Colorado July 27-29, 2007
« on: May 28, 2007, 04:02:21 PM »
NOTE:  I have no idea how to transfer topics, so this is just copied from the V-con thread.  I am working on this project as I can & will do more based upon interest.  Please respond to me via Personal Message if you are interested in attending any or all events, or if you have any suggestions or questions.  Thank you. 


I am finally at the draft stage of the Festival I am hostessing in Colorado in July.  I have chosen July 27-29, and will post more as details become more available.  I can board up to 7 people at my place (1 meal a day included), and I would require a suggested donation of $30-40 per day.  There will be one activity that will require additional payment (should you chose to attend it); I believe it is around $30.00 per ticket & I would need that payment in advance to try to get reduced rates for our group.  I'm happy to have the weekend events be as big (or little) as possible, I just need to start getting feedback asap.  At last count, there were 5 tentatively confirmed boarders (leaving only 2 available spaces).  Please send me a Personal Message if you are interested and/or might be in the Colorado area at the end of July.

FESTIVAL will encompass all religions, creeds, metaphysical abilities, and orders/fellowships.  Please feel free to wear your best ritual and/or practice outfits as you see fit, and change for different classes if you'd like.  However, aside from those participating in the Ritual, no special clothing is necessary, though it is encouraged.  This is a time to celebrate, have fun, and "show off big time"!!!

The Festival is set to go as follows and will be held in the Denver metropolitan area July 27-29, 2007 (all times are approximate):

Friday, July 27:   afternoon/evening - meet & greet & potluck buffet, guided meditation & group discussion 
6 p.m. outing to Red Rocks Amphitheater (optional)  NOTE:  due to a Happy "Coincidence", CelticWoman just happens to be the concert showing this night.  Tickets are $40, however, so I'm waiting to get responses of interest, which are needed ASAP!!

Saturday, July 28:  9 a.m. reading & group breakfast
10 a.m. Martial Arts class to be taught by Martial Thoughts and Forg (gentlemen, please feel free to add to this)
11 a.m. How to Play with Children and do Better at Work by Thomas David Kehoe, author of "Hearts and Minds How our Brains are Hardwired for Relationships"
12 p.m. Lunch
1:30 p.m. Inspirational Reading (submissions of poetry, prose, etc. to be included must be received by July 20th)
2 p.m. Power Animals, Totem & Talismans class by Aquamarine Sunflower Wonderland
2:30 p.m. OPEN (please contact me if you are interested in sharing any of your talents with the group in any of these time slots)
3 p.m. OPEN
3:30 p.m. OPEN
4 p.m. OPEN
Any and all events after 7 p.m. will be considered to contain adult content.  Subjects of a "darker" nature are expected to be included.  I encourage others who may feel like outcasts to come to an open forum.  This part of the Festival will be handled in personal messages and/or at the Festival.  There are openings for teaching here, too.  Again, please contact me if you are interested.

Sunday, July 29:  8 a.m. group breakfast and reading
9 a.m. Renaissance Festival/Scarborough Faire (optional & costs additional for ticket & must be paid in advance).  This is basically a chance to relax and have some fun after all those classes!  This is a lot of fun, especially if you've never been to one, or if you've always wanted to go with a group all dressed up.  I will be wearing my finest costumery.  NOTE:  I need to get responses on interest in this ASAP
4:30 p.m. leave faire
8 p.m. leave for "secret" High Magic Ritual destination

Monday, July 30:  9 a.m. Group blessings and farewell

Please send me a Personal Message if you are interested.  I am also getting responses from locals and long-distance friends and interested parties (from providing Festival details on other sites), so I expect there will be a pretty fair turnout.

The Cafeteria / musicians/artists dead as a result of addiction
« on: May 05, 2007, 01:25:16 PM »
I have been inspired to start this thread dedicated to musicians/artists who had an affect and/or effect on my life who are no longer with us due to drug overdose (I am including alcohol).  It makes me tear up when I think of all the incredibly talented and gifted people who are no longer with us as a result of addiction.  Something which can, apparently, be a gift and a curse.   :'(

Sublime lead singer (male)
Blind Melon lead singer (male)
K's Choice lead singer (female)
4 nonblondes lead singer (female)
Jim Morrison (male)
Janis Joplin (female)
Karen Carpenter (not really drugs, but anorexia) (female)
Kurt Cobain (drugs/suicide) (male)
Bon Scott (male)

This list is just spur-of-the-moment and off the top of my head.  Please add your favorites.

The Cafeteria / 300 humor
« on: April 22, 2007, 10:50:06 AM »
While I (think I will) like the movie 300, that is mainly due to my support for a culture that holds an ideal like "come back in victory, or come back dead" so highly.  For all those who don't like the forward kick or whatever else, here is a video I found which I thought you might appreciate, as we could all use a little more humor in our lives, especially at a time like this.

I don't know why that didn't come across as a link, but if you can find it, PM me and I will send it to you.  Hope you enjoy.
