Shining Tea Room

  • Unfortunately it has become a very patriarchal religion without realizing it. The masculi always complain about it having no men, but they don’t see how it’s been tainted by masculinity as is. If that makes any sense.

    I felt as if it were more a self worshiping religion rather than a divinely inspired one. It is quite sad. Diana/Artemis is never…[Read more]

  • Welcome Miss Venus,

    I don’t know much about Dianism (if that is the correct term). It seems rather sad that it should be – well masculinist. I am glad you are finding a gentler way!

    Which anime do you like?

    Please give me your loving indulgence.

    Rayati, honored Miss Venus! It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, and I look forward to getting to know you better!

    In Amity,

  • Oh yes! Pardon me for not doing this last night. I’m quite new to Chelouranya. I came from a dianic pagan background and after a while I didn’t feel anything for it. It was a little too “radical” for my tastes. Believe it or not I was extremely short-haired and attempted to be masculine! I got tired of this though. I wished to be more feminine and…[Read more]

  • Rayati and welcome Honored Miss Venus,

    Please give me your loving indulgence.

    Your profile picture is quite lovely.

    If you would be so kind as to introduce yourself, and let us know a little more about you and your interest in Chelouranya, we would be very grateful.

    I hope you enjoy your stay here.

    In Amity,

  • I just remembered this thread today –

    Normally, I keep a Rider-Waite deck downloaded on my phone. Something about having it is very calming.

    However, I found a new app that I’ve quite fallen in love with – it’s called KawaiiTarot (I have an Android phone), and the imagery is a sort of kawaii, minimalist Japanese art.

    I don’t know if any…[Read more]

  • Rosamunda-chei, I agree wholeheartedly. Part of my frustration with the situation was that… Well, why does a mascül feel the need to have a say about our culture, when it does not pertain to him?

    As for my friend, she has indeed been looking into Chelouranya – thank Dea, she has not been driven away from the beauty of our inherent femininity…[Read more]

  • Well, since you’ve happened to ask, here is a brunette perspective, and a married one, and a struggling in Telluria one all together.

    You’re choosing a hard road. But is it really harder than going against your nature?

    Telluria right now expects everyone who looks like a grown up to work, and the economy in the United States is certainly set up…[Read more]

  • Your mother may be thinking that it is a big risk to go into the world unqualified even if you think now that that is what you want to do. It is the sort of thing mothers think and the point of view is understandable up to a point – but..

    It seems to me that an even bigger risk is to take on a big burdensome debt in order to get a qualification…[Read more]

  • Rayati, honoured ones.

    I am feeling rather upset at the moment since a conversation with my mother that just ruined my entire day.

    My younger sister is doing rather well for herself at the moment. She is studying art at University and has always done better in academic environments than myself. But my mother now wants me to do a degree too, and…[Read more]

    Rayati!

    Before I found Filianism & Deanism, I already had a basic idea of what I believed.

    I had just left the Tellurian religion of Mormonism (formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). This religion is a form of Christianity that teaches that we have two Heavenly Parents: a Father and Mother. However, the Mother is…[Read more]

    Miss Sanae, it sounds like you and I have had very similar experiences, then! I must be careful with it, too, because of my medications.

    Another point: I take care not to drink when I am feeling mentally or spiritually unwell, as it can make one susceptible psychic demonic attacks. Many people in Telluria use alcohol as an anti-depressant of…[Read more]

  • Sanae replied to the topic Alcohol in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    I read this with great interest! I must be very careful with alcohol due to some medications that I am taking, but when I imbibe, I am always careful to plan to do it around people I trust, like your brunette-femini friends, Miss Eriana. And my dear brunette-type friends know that I am trusting them with my safety, so they are extra careful with…[Read more]

  • Eriana replied to the topic Alcohol in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Thank you both, very much! You have certainly helped me come to a conclusion on this.

    I completely agree about ones company affecting their experience drinking, Miss Rosamunda. I have a good example of this, actually. I have a group of friends currently, mainly brunette-like femini, who are some of the most caring and loving people I have ever…[Read more]

  • My pardon is yours with all my heart, honored Mei-san. As for Shining World and Chelouranya as a whole – it is primarily a place for people who are, from the perspective of Tellurians, aliens. In the Motherland, and in this protectorate of the Motherland, the presence of a mascul would be wrong. I suppose insofar as Tellurians are aware of us,…[Read more]

  • I am a bit of an exception to the stereotype of the heavy-drinking brunette, I think. I must admit more than one or two drinks just isn’t any fun for me. But then, after one or two drinks it stops being a social lubricant and starts being an anaesthetic, and I’m not fond of anaesthetics. Mind you, I enjoy those one or two drinks thoroughly, when I…[Read more]

  • Sushuri replied to the topic Alcohol in the forum Group logo of Shining Tea RoomShining Tea Room 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    I don’t think there is any objection to the use (as opposed to the abuse) of alcohol.

    Some brunettes do tend to drink rather more than blondes on occasion I think. and that’s all right. Personally I don’t really like the feeling of more than a teensy bit of alcohol

    Rayati!

    Before I begin I would like to say that I am yet unsure whether or not I consider myself a Daughter of Shining Harmony. I very much relate to the idea of intermorphic gender systems and definitely believe my soul to belong to a feminine world that is very different than Telluria. This has been proven recently when I came to the conclusion…[Read more]
