I know what I believe in and practice. I have never found a particular religion that gave it a term. There's nothing wrong with that, yep, just that it would be easier and more informative to people who want to know. If somehow I did find one that took everything that I believe, and had other people, my mind would be sufficiently "blown". Course, it's possible I have been looking in all the wrong search engines.

-Energy (psychic, mental energy, whatever) is tied to the physical. Ex.-The atmosphere is a massive pool full of energy, constantly going in and out of living things. Living things change the make-up of that atmosphere, erego, the energy changes as well, until it comes to another thing that will then change the structure in a continuous cycle.

-The spirit/soul of beings is the same energy.

-The Spirits are energy, but different. Like putting oil and water in a bottle. Together but seperate, until agitated. Structure remains unchanged.

-This can cause the reincarnation bit, when one's energy becomes a part of the ecosystem and atmosphere and can end up making the bulk of a new person's energy (who, up 'til that point, was a part of the mother's energy). By being exposed to the energized world they absorb energy from the world, while most would have energy from nearly hundreds of beings that individual personalities would be diluted, if one particular energy is concentrated enough it can hold its influence.

-The Spirits, with their different energy, are able to be around us, IN us, but not permanently and must eventually return to their "oil/water seperation". I include dieties under Spirits, though I do not have personal experience to say this conclusively... I reserve my judgement but assume they work the same.

-There are many other planes of physical and different energy, ours is only one.

-I know and talk to (well, pray, but my conversations are too casual to call prayer) a couple Spirits, and I know their personalities, if I do not know their names.

I have noticed that a lot of people pay homage to particular dieties. I am curious.
How do you choose who to pay respects? Do you call on your choices, or do they spontaneously reach you?

I have never been in contact with what is a known historical diety, in any meditation or dream. Atleast, never a positively identified as a contect, and not continuous. It seems strange (ok, not "strange", just different that what I'm familiar with) to me, how that could be started and how the relationship between person and diety is maintained.

Maybe I'm just not cool enough to roll with the cool kids of the spiritual world.  Grin

In the vast majority of cases, people pick the deities they feel an affinity for or whose area covers their concerns. A few people are called by a specific deity who contacts them, but that's relatively rare. And it doesn't mean that the person is "more cool" or whatever, it usually means that the deity needs that specific person to do something for reasons only the deity really knows.
