    'Dear Reader',

    Thanks for the great story and for all of your input on this thread. It's fantastic. I composed a long response yesterday and then hit some key, by mistake and the whole thing disappeared.

    And thank you everybody else and particularly Modwiz and Lord Sidious for input that is close to their hearts! I will try to find more in the way of interest to keep this thread as alive as the pantheon of Gods and nature spirits--that still exists within all of us, waiting to be kick started by text.

    I just want to quickly add that my great grandmother on my father's side was a pipe smoking midwife with Sammi heritage. When I told a Spanish friend this he told me that midwife is sometimes code for 'shaman.' I don't put too much stock in that story, but do feel very strongly that 2 of my siblings and myself are highly 'receptive.'

    That is why the whole phenomenon of the occult and shamanism scares me so much. I am too open to it and though I have to credit what I call my guardian angels for working on my behalf -- the flipside of that coin is I can easily summon dark forces to work my will through as well. I never want to do this. I have only been temped twice in my life and never want to be tempted again.

    never never invoke the dark spirits ... no, no, no. It can be done and there is a huge amount of anecdotal evidence supporting that. I'm afraid to let the 'words' enter my thoughts even without active motivation. no, no, no ... that is asking for way more trouble than we alone can deal with. And there is a huge amount of anecdotal evidence for that as well.

    if you have a gift then reassure yourself that is a gift from the light side.

    NAP,

    I agree completely. It is a terrible abuse. Had I acted on my impulses, it would have been with the spirit of just retaliation. But...it's never wise, because even if you have been targeted by a psychopath, for example, you end up acting like one yourself through negative occult action. I imagine you can also lose control of any negative agenda you implement and then the chain reaction could be truly dire.

    yes, I had a girlfriend that claimed she had a witch put a spell on me. After dragging me through the infernal mud, her hair fell out... I never once let myself think that she deserved it, i was just sorta happy that it happened. And so, I just continued to entertain my fantasies of killing her ...

    The psychopath who burnt me, has moved to the most dangerous fire zone in the U.S. Ironic, isn't it? No need to get a voodoo doll and set it on fire! And I have to admit that when I read about major fires in his region and see that his specific area hasn't been mentioned in evacuations, I feel just a tad let down. I think this is acceptable. Don't want to see him hurt, just inconvenienced.

    This movie is based on one of the Fairy-Tales that I was brought up with (bottle-fed on).

    "The Ash Lad"

    Norwegian Fairy-Tales are full of symbolism and teaches that the smallest thing can have the greatest value and consequence in life. They could be really scary for the mind of a child .

    Trolls!

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    the movie looks very stylish ... I'm surprised I've never even heard of it.

    Very good...another Fairy Tale. It's a good thing that Trolls are very stupid.

    The movie was surprisingly good ... the cinematography was very good...beautiful even. The colors were so rich, I wonder if that was an effect or the true colors.
