Reminds me when I visit "my Council of Elders". The spirits are not "cute". I think that it is so that I am not dealing with side issues, and the same problem, which concerns me, to introduce oneself.

I hug my monsters..  It makes them smile and cuddly..  I just can't find and have any more nightmares to embrace and hug the monsters in..  Seems I've "frightened away" all my monsters with too much love and cuddles..  I love your monsters.. I just wish I could find more monsters to play with like yours.. Monsters are so much more friendly, gentle, honest and loving than most humans..  I'd wish I could meet your lovely monsters in my dreams and cosmic trances, face to face 101, close up and personal, your majesty...

Are the monsters you mentioned real?
cosmicbrat Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
I hope you enjoy lengthy posts..  It'll take a very long post to just barely answer your question..

Should a monster happen in a dream, I have enough control when asleep to gently hug and kiss the monster, thus making it instantly be my friend.. I don't have nightmares I can't handle..

One of my silly hobbies is making friends of the monsters on the planet, whenever I happens to meet them.. Like the black widow spiders I meet.. One sweetheart lady black widow permitted me to gently tap her back while she stayed put.. Then she permitted me to gently tap a leg, till she raised it, and placed her paw on the side of my hand.. I closed my eyes and dove into deep meditative state in trying to feel her touch, but couldn't.. Then she permitted me to push four of her kegs to touching the other four, making her look like she was standing on four legs.. But I just couldn't get up the nerve to ease my finger under her fronts, too close to those fangs, to raise her up just enough to make her seem to be standing on two..   I made friends with that little monster..  Friends don't sting friends...

When I solo camp in deep-woods forest.. around midnight I take a walk along a game trail, without weapon nor light.. Last time I took that walk, I'm about 7-minutes into it when I hears a cougar growl/scream low to the ground about 25-feet to my 3: Oclock.. I hyperventilated silently, pushed down that hot fear-bubble, faced the origin of the noise, and spoke in my best voice "Walk with me your majesty", and continued feeling the trail with my toes..  I could hear the monster keeping pace with me about 6 to 10 feet to my right, its claws clicking on rocks.. I came upon a boulder in the path, but couldn't see even an inch in front of my, so I dove into deep meditative trance, hoping I could see with my mind which way the path went, forgetting there was a hungry cougar nearby.. is when the monster screamed in my left ear about 4 inches from my ear.. I was so deep into meditative state that I didn't even flinch nor blink.. I slowly opened my eyes, faced the noise with a look of offended disgust, paused a minute, turned, and walked leisurely back to camp..  That monster was real for sure.. Definitely not a friend!..  I've met three sucky-baby cougars..  They don't have any bush manners whatsoever.. though one did sing with my blues-harp music one day, from across the river..  It's a super Rush having a wild animal sing to you..  It opens up a normally dormant facet of your mind for you..  but it initially makes your legs go so rubbery that you fall to the ground on your bum..  Not fun when there's sticks and rocks behind you...

Sitting, then laying on the ground 8-feet from a large female grizzly for 45 minutes, at 1:30 AM in the moonlight was fun..  She quickly became my friend..  In the morning she approached my tent, and sniffed me head to toes twice, pressing her nose hard to my butt twice.. I made a whine noise and rolled over, and she left quietly and politely.. I can confidently claim that "a wild she-griz kissed my ass with respect, twice"..  I sensed more compassion in that bear than there could be in any hundred average humans all combined...  After my meeting her, she probably would have played nicely with humans, but cops shot her on the outskirts of Jasper National Park after she used rough English to order a solo female hiker, "Get Out Of My Forest!".. The girl probably messed in her pants Bigtime..  The cops shot the talking bear.. It took me half an hour to teach her the English alphabet and a hundred small words..  Her babies would have probably played nice with humans, and maybe would have defended humans in the forest..  They killed my friendly monster friend..  The only monsters I can't make friends with, nor trust are most humans..  Most humans are much more dangerous than wild bears, cougars, and venomous creatures...

Meeting the young lady red-haired Bigfoot was EPIC as it gets..  The little bugger paralysed me.. It lasted seven excruciating hours, till I eventually figured how to break the freeze..  Now I know why the ancient refused to talk about their meetings with those monsters.. They couldn't break the freeze, and they messed in their togas..  I lucked out.. but it was impossible to stand for a long while.. I had to AM pee kneeling...

I very much enjoy playing with monsters, what ever they be, but I tend to avoid most humans..  
It is required that we have the skill to meet a greet and make friends of monsters, because should you ever get to the inner skin of the afterlife, you are met with a beast so powerful and frightening, that it makes our best animated depictions of werewolves seem like little pet bunnies compared to them.. You have 3-seconds to have made it your friend, or it has attacked and devoured you in the next 2-seconds.. The only item they can't attack is pure absolute naive innocent love.. is why the afterlife is void of human spirits..  You gotta love the monsters for them to love you.. It's not an easy task...
It's love the monsters, or recycle.. No other options exist, is why I'm practising with earth based monsters, in learning how to love all life...
