you're a bad spirit worker if you can't talk to spirits
So I’ve been staring at this thinking I ought to just delete and disregard this but I figured maybe there’s other people out there feeling like they can’t be a good spirit worker because they can’t astral or they can’t communicate telepathically or empathically. So let’s handle this shall we?
In my opinion, the only bad spirit worker is the one who isn’t caring for their spirits, the one who disregards their responsibilities, the one who ignores the needs of those depending on them. Lacking an easy and tool-free communication method can make relationships strained depending on the spirit and spirit worker in question’s needs. But it doesn’t have to be a deal breaker for a couple reasons:
1) These skills can be learned and built upon. It takes time, patience, and a lot of effort but it can be done. For some it will be very hard and take a lot of time but it’s still a possibility. For those who desperately want to learn, give yourself the time to learn and grow and you just might find yourself developing clearer communication. Here is a nice guide for working on psychic communication
2) If for some reason you can’t build upon the skills, don’t fear as it isn’t required. As I said, the only bad spirit workers are those neglecting their companions. If you’ve got a companion who needs a lot of talking to feel fulfilled, you might want to say good bye to them for a while because it wouldn’t be right to keep them stuck in a relationship that won’t fulfill them. However, other spirits will be content with minimal communication and prefer just casually being around you as a form of time spent. Find a spirit whose needs match your own and your abilities to care for.
With that said, communication is vital to a working relationship so you do need SOME way of communication. I rely almost entirely on divination and it works out okay.for me and for my companions. We all three wish that it was easier for me to communicate with them because they’d like to accompany me on outings and stuff and just chat. Divination tools aren’t exactly travel friendly. Sometimes divination methods are limited in what they can convey both in information and in tone. (Though that’s why I use shufflemancy so much as it can convey a wide variety of tones and emotions.) So yes, there are difficulties that come from the lack of ease of communication. But that just means I have to try harder and reach out more actively to my spirit companions and make sure their needs are being met. Things aren’t always smooth but I make sure they have what they need and that we do spend time together even if it’s just chilling and watching something on Netflix together.
Are there times where I desperately wish for a tooless form of communication? Yes. Are there times I feel lesser because I lack this ability? Yeah, guilty as charged. Sometimes I beat myself up a lot over these things because sometimes I accidentally overlook my companions’ needs since they have a hard time getting my attention when they need me. So yeah, sometimes I have been a sucky spirit worker because I haven’t been attentive enough. But that’s on me to find ways to work around this weakness of mine. And it’s also on me to, if it comes to it, accept if I can’t meet my companions’ needs. But so far I have been and the times we spend together have been joyous even if communicating that has taken more effort from both parties to achieve. But I will keep working at it for them. And if one is willing to put in the amount of work it takes to make things work then they’re deserving of the title of spirit worker whether they can communicate with ease or not. At least, that’s my view.
This man who looked about a thousand years old stood about 6-7 feet away from me while I was browsing clothes and said “Look what the modern world has done to a perfectly good young girl.” I looked behind me to figure out who he was talking to but there was nobody and he was staring right at me. He shuffled off after that leaving me to wonder what the fuck that was about.
McGee: Tony, what’s going on? Do you have a drinking problem? Tony: No. No, I just I joined this men’s support group. Meets in the church hall two nights a week. McGee: You serious?! Tony: I know, it it doesn’t sound like me, but with the past year, I just wanted to shake things up a little bit.
So Tony is so messed up by his quasi-breakup with Ziva that he is essentially in therapy now.
yeah i don't think its a flashback either. i just want to see it on 19, hopefully malec will be okay
YOOOOOOOOO I just remembered something! Remember that scene where Jace and Clary checked Izzy’s room?
Izzy had a photo of her and Max on her dresser and I THINK, they took it the same day of shooting (LOL) because Max was wearing his grey hoodie and though I can’t see what Izzy is wearing, I have a feeling she’s wearing her costume as well that’s why it wasn’t shown.
ANYWAY. Setting aside the fact that they’re wearing the clothes they were wearing when it all went downhill- WHAT IF the photobooth photos are in photo frames in Magnus’ loft or in Alec’s office? WHAT IF those photos are Magnus or Alec’s phone wallpaper? WHAT IF there’s a scene of Magnus or Alec, fucking looking at the photo? MY GOD. I’M GOING TO LOSE IT.
