Portals

21 posts in this topic

I wondered if it's possible to spot areas that have portals in them and what they might feel like?

On my way to work there is this really strange alleyway, I hate even passing it, it feels so weird. If I get too close it's like I can feel it pulsing and shimmering.

I remembered reading a post on portals on the old forum and I think this might be one. Anyone know anything?

Thanks.

There's an area that my mother drives through while she's driving me to school for summer classes—the area is somewhere at a four-way intersection near a traffic light—and the air around it has a tendency to warp... I get this distinct feeling in the center of my chest when she passes through it. I wonder if THAT'S a portal. As for what you found, Dem, I wouldn't know, but the two areas sound... similar in properties. o3o

It may be a portal but I'd have to experience it for myself to have a clearer idea. It sounds though like it may be a portal, just based on the description, but like I said I'd have to experience it in person to be sure. And people do experience things in a different way (ie some see colours, others hear things, etc)

There was a portal in a house I used to live in a few years ago, pain in my butt too. I didn't realize what it was until after I awakened and had a few odd dreams, but things were always getting in the house and they'd usually come after me. I had to cleanse it several times on the sly and it was the first place I remember ever encountering shadow creatures. I literally SAW one come into my room one night when I was trying to fall asleep and I could feel it watching me from a corner of my room. Being unawakened and completely unfamiliar with how to protect myself and all that I did nothing and waited to see what it would do. Gave it one hell of a scare when it tried to attack me in my dreams.

But ever since we had moved into that place the back room had always creeped me out immensely and I always felt as though I were being watched and it was usually a menacing sensation. I knew there were spirits in the house of one of the previous owners, a couple kids, and another woman, I even encountered them in a dream not long before we left there (very cool actually), but unlike my mom I could always feel that there was something more there and I knew where it was coming from. In the back room, at the top and towards the middle of the servant stairs that just happened to come down into the bathroom that was "mine". Yes it was an old house but the door leading to those stairs sure popped open an awful lot....

I tried several times to either close the portal or at least set up a barrier around it to try and keep anything else negative from getting in, but barriers need to be maintained and I really had no idea what I was doing back then. I felt even though we were leaving I should at least try, for the sake of the spirits who lived there, and maybe a little for the new owners. I refused to go on those stairs though right up until before we moved when they needed to be painted (badly) and I felt as though the main woman of the house wanted me to overcome my fear and do it. I did and it was after that when the two female spirits appeared in my dreams.

Just sharing my experience. Mayhaps you'll gain a bit more experience with this spot yourself? Ohhh someone told me this, a kin actually, that one way portals form is when two mirrors are facing each other and/or when a mirror is facing a door. It's interesting for me because when I was in college the room I had in my senior year had a mirror on the back already (cracked I think but I can't remember) and I put the mirror I'd brought over that. I always had the urge to make absolutely sure I cleansed that area, sometimes even lifting one mirror to go over the other, and putting up protection to keep anything from coming through the mirror(s). And I hadn't heard of the mirror thing yet.

Hope this helps somehow >_<

We had two portals in our last house, one in the back room at the top of the house, (we used it for storage) and one inside the wall between the bathroom and the living room.

We used to get small black 'creatures' coming through those portals. They looked like a cross between a squirrel, a rat and a cat. They would shoot across the room and I'd see them just out of the corner of my eye, but when I turned toward them fully they would disappear.

I would always advise anyone to be very careful around portals. The portals themselves can be dangerous, they mess with your energy and can leave you feeling sad, even depressed, they can make you feel hyper, they can drain you and leave you feeling more tired than you have ever felt before. But it's not just the energy field of the portal that can make problems, the beings that use the portal and come out into your space can be a problem too.

I agree with you, Velvet, portals can be dangerous and have bad effects on those who go near them, especially (or so it seems) people who are spiritually aware. I didn't know what was back in that room originally but my instincts told me to stay as far from it as I could get. Unfortunately it was where the second TV in the house was located and....that was generally where I got stuck watching my Saturday morning cartoons -_- I never went in though without mentally preparing myself and as I grew in my awareness and strength it didn't bother me as much. It had started out where I wouldn't even use my parents' bathroom and hate being in their closet and office area (the upstairs of the house had a weird setup), but eventually I felt alright enough to stay in their bathroom long enough for a shower. I mean hey, they had the bigger, newer tub and "my" bathroom was just a stand-in shower XD

But yes, between the energy of the portal and everything that may be using them, not a good idea to get mixed up with a portal if you can help it.

I've just read my last post and I feel that I should just clarify one point, we used the back room for storage NOT the portal. lol

It sounds like you managed to tune your energy to exclude most of the effects the portal might have had on you Rhannan. Did you always have to mentally put up shields or did it just come naturally to you after a while?

There are lots of ways to spot them Demavora,

Hot or cold fluctuations are excellent and probably the easiest physical signs to use when detecting portals.

A slight breeze in a room where there shouldn't really even be a draft.

A feeling of vertigo even though you are no where near anything high up. Portals can also feel "tall" when you are side on to them.

Sometimes there is an ominous feeling of being watched when you are in front of a portal, this could either be from a full blown portal or from a mirror being used as a window. They have similar properties to portals but are only used for viewing.

Other physical signs can be a slight visual rippling or spiralling effect in the air in front of the portal.

Vegetation often leaves signs of a portal by framing it.

The feeling of a portal is unmistakable..... it is a hole in reality. It feels like a void, like a bottomless pit, like standing on top of the tallest imaginable thing and teetering on the edge of falling off and it's either pulling you in, or pushing you in. If it's pushing you in to itself, it's a portal bringing things and if it's pulling you in, it is a portal taking things away.

Not only is a portal a hole in reality it is a pathway to another place and as such will always feels like it goes somewhere important, albeit either a worrying or inviting one.

Not all portals are malevolent and in fact we should all be in possession of at least one. That is the one on the edge of your inner space that links you to the great library. It provides a safe passage directly to the library so that no matter what you are always capable of entering it from anywhere, no matter where your body is or how far away it is from the library.

Even if your body is on the fourth planet out from Alpha Centauri you will be still be able to move into the great library just as quickly and easily as someone who is here on Earth.

Distance is no object to either energy or portals.

lol, Velvet. I assumed that was what you meant XD

After a while I think I just naturally shielded and tuned things out, although I knew it was still there and could sense it. I think I became a bit resistant mostly because of getting used to things. That and stuff usually learned to leave me alone because I tended to react unhappily when bothered :lol:

I think I have at least one portal right by my bed. When reading in bed and I do that a lot, I often see a flashes flickering like a thunder...it has this greyish blue hue to it, from the corner of my left eye. I have checked all other possibilities...light falling from my lamps in odd angles, lights from outside falling from odd angles, reflection from my mirrors, but no luck there...so I can only assume that it is a portal. Never the less, I do not get any eerie sensation from it at all. It can remain open as long as it does not bother me.

That sounds like it might be your own personal portal Jalyndre,

There is no reason for your own to feel odd plus being by your bed (unless it follows you) it would be in the most convenient place for any astral travelling you might do. As much as distance and placement is no object for portals they still tend to end up being well placed on a physical level as well as an energy one.

A portal that is actually in your inner space can show up in a rock miles from home because that is where you physically go to use it, the fact that it is with you all the time anyway can take a little adjusting to.

No, the portal does not follow me around, it is fixed by my bed and yes, I do meditate/go on the astral plane a lot. So after your explaination I am thinking of it as my astral front door now :)

It is possible to 'borrow' a portal from a physical location and have it relocate itself somewhere convenient for you. Often the random appearance of portals in your home location just means that you have chanced on one while you were out somewhere and it followed you home. So when you move somewhere new and find, amazingly, that your new home has a portal just like your last home, it might not be such a huge co-incidence after all.

That's due to one or two different possibilities. One is that your energy is attracted to the portal (or the portal is attracted to yours) for some reason. It may be just a similarity of energies or it could be that the portal has something for you.

Another is that someone has aligned the portal to you. That's not necessarily a bad thing but it does rather depend on the intent of the person doing the alignment.

Shade, has a portal ever followed you to a different country?

And you see, this is an example of why otherkin is very much a religion. Someone makes a claim like this, and then others start trying to mesh it into their own beliefs, and it becomes a new religious belief. It actually has no real substance though. The only evidence it has is the faith itself, because ultimately inconclusive anecdotes from people all sharing the same belief system really doesn't count as evidence. And yet people will integrate such things as this into their identity, and do so to the point where think that they are justified to believe this is true, and spread it and state it as fact when it really isn't. It's not dishonesty though, because these people actually think they know what they're talking about, so it's really ignorance.

"in fact we should all be in possession of at least one."

I'll have you know that I can just as easily make baseless or anecdotal statements, which using your standard for evidence will then be "facts".

There is in fact no such thing as portals. I know this because god told me so. Fun fact, god is my best friend and we planned the holocaust together. These are now facts because I said so.

This is a serious problem though really in the otherkin community, and why we are often seen as cultists or as a religion, because we often make the same thought mistakes and reflect it in how strongly people believe.

In short, don't claim to know things that you can't and don't know as fact. Also be critical of ideas and where they come from.

:) we are on an otherkin forum. So there will be a lot of things accepted as fact here becasue most of us, being otherkin, believe. I wouldnt say Otherkin is a religion, but rather, attracts certain people of certain beliefs. It might be less stressful for you if you didn't take it so negatively. People are talking casually here, so to expect them to be acedemic and not say things they believe with confidence, I think is asking a bit too much of them. Your more likely to make the thread off topic than acomplish anthing real. A better way to handle this, and stay on topic would probably be this:

Since this topic is about portals, the text you quoted is talking about the akashic records. Since you seem to be a skeptic, believeing that otherkinism is a psychological thing... it would be more contibuting if you told us why portals can't exist. Or perhaps they can, but not in the way they are talking about. I am about to do something similar....

The akashic records are not accessed through a portal. It's an OOBE. This is accepted as fact by almost everyone who has done it for the thousands of years this has been in practice. To say its some portal attached to everyone is a bit ridiculous when placing it up next to thousands of years of people's personal experiences that contradict that. You can access the hall of records from anywhere not because of some personal connected portal but becasue it isnt physical. there is no distance, time or space in a dimantion with no physicality, thus there would be no need for a portal, you just think it and you are there. As someone who has done it, I can confirm that this is the case for me when i have accessed the records. Anyone who tries will probably have a similar experience. Anything resembling a tunnel(that would suggest it being a protal) is most likely a OOBE side effect.

Larso otherkinity isn't seen as a religion and for many people to possibly experience the same thing makes it fact atleast in my opinion, you have your beliefs on the community, you have your beliefs on what YOU think of things, not what others see it. It would be nice if you didn't highjack threads to only state yourself as if you know what others think or see things. If enough people experience something when it involves A certain subject said subject starts to become fact.

LOL.. Sadly this is Larsomach's whole contribution to this forum.. He tries his best to cause trouble.

We have found that the very best way to deal with him is to just pass over his posts as if they are not there and move on. He is at best a self centered bore and at worst a bit of a pest. If you can ignore him, really I think it's best to do so.

You're a group of people sharing a system of beliefs, and you claim to know these things only through faith, and you reject outside ideas and criticism so that you can cling to your baseless beliefs. How is this not religion? Also, I don't take them as fact, because they aren't facts. Should we also not separate church and state? Should we force everyone to follow the majority faith? Should we always just accept the faith of the majority as fact? No, because that's majoriy tyranny and the very opposite of liberty.

The akashic records are not accessed through a portal. It's an OOBE. This is accepted as fact by almost everyone who has done it for the thousands of years this has been in practice.

How convenient, I can only know it if I believe it. Well then, I could just as easily say that I believe in Islam, the Koran is the holy word of Allah, and I know it's true because I believe it. So why don't you accept the truth and convert to Islam now?

Larso otherkinity isn't seen as a religion

Many Christians also don't call their faith a religion, but everyone still views it as that. You clearly must be hanging with a very like minded group of people to not know that the reality of the situation is that most people outside of this your religion view it as a religion. Please go out and associate with people who have different ideas. I have you people on the extreme end for different ideas, and then I also have liberal, conservative, socialist, and neo-nazis who I associate with. I like to see all sides and take in as many ideas as possible, where as you apparently don't otherwise you would know that most people would view your beliefs as religion.

and for many people to possibly experience the same thing makes it fact at least in my opinion... If enough people experience something when it involves A certain subject said subject starts to become fact.

That is just flat out wrong. People believing something does not make it fact, because people can be and often are wrong. If what you said was true then every single religion big or small would be correct simultaneously. Now of course that isn't possible since they all contradict each other. You cannot use faith as evidence. Faith is something you take because you have no real reason to believe it. To state faith based beliefs as facts is not only wrong, but it's dishonest. To say that you know something when you really don't is dishonest. I am not a man of faith and have always found it difficult to be one, because I just can't be that dishonest with myself or others. I can't repeat the lie that I have valid reasons to act and believe on my feeling alone until I believe it. You should also be aware that the same "faith" or "beliefs" which allow you to regard myths as facts is the exact same kind of thinking that allows people to justify crusades and jihads. It is a very ugly way to think imo.

I don't actually want to cause trouble. I would like to have serious thoughtful discussion, but most of you seem more interested in just repeating and reinforcing your beliefs rather than think about them. You have no idea how to engage in heated conversation with a point that goes anywhere. My posts are well thought out and argued, and to say that the best thing to do is ignore me, is to say, "remain closed minded and don't listen to this heretic's ideas". That is a very cowardly and ignorant stance to take I think. It's also the least productive.
