I work with Shamanic Totems (mine are Bear, Buffalo, Otter, Coyote, Penguin)
*snickers* I wasn't expecting you to put him up...
And yes, we know each other in real life.
As for me, I read Tarot cards (Egyptian, Ibis, and standard card decks).
I work with the 'known' (as In-the-books-I-read) metaphysical properties of Stones.
I can see most creatures around someone, whether they are your totem, daemon (as DF puts it), or just some one attached to you is for you and them to talk and meditate about.
I can also do a tiny bit of Astral Travel, but I have to have the name of a person in order to visit them. Speaking of which, DF, do you remember comin' in on for a Sekhmet assist? Had an invasion last night. I ask cause Bear and Coyote both made an appearance.
As for hearing and seeing, it depends on who I'm with. I tend to piggy-back. If I'm with DF, I hear more then when I'm alone. But, when I'm with a group I hear everybody! >< Which is a pain, because your focus changes from one person, to a daemon, to a creature, to a Beast (spirit not so friendly, nor in a recognized form), to another person's thought... It's a mess. And I need to keep a smokey with me... Or steal DF's.... I'm joking, don't auraflare me.
Oh yeah, I can read Aura's sometimes too.
I don't seem to specialize in any one thing. But the stuff I know, I know
because it comes from my heart.
