Those of the Black Water - Spirit
THE HOLLOW REALM
The Hollow Realm is a very dark, incredibly dangerous and downright FASCINATING realm.
I have been carefully visiting and learning for quite a few months now (I did really want to be finished and ready to offer spirits from there for Samhain but I needed some extra time to be extra extra extra sure of things!) and interacting with and keeping some spirits from there on my own for that time as well... And let me tell you... They are incredible.
The Hollow Realm isn't a true 'full' realm like most others. It seems to be in a space between realms. It isn't massive, but it isn't a small, and it seems to ever be shifting it's actual shape to bend around the spaces it fits between.
It is a realm of perpetual 'just after sunset' with little colour, an odd hush to the atmosphere, and creatures the likes of which may only dwell in nightmares before now.
Make no mistake, this realm is DANGEROUS. The living creatures residing there are DANGEROUS and as such there will not EVER be living entities offered from there through my store, it would be asking for disaster.... but as with a lot of dark and dangerous beings (many typical Fae and Elves included ;) ) having them as spirits negates the danger they may pose to you as a keeper. They look for companionship, look to help and offer their incredible and often jaw dropping abilities to those that wish to have them in their homes, and can be surprisingly loving, caring and EXCEPTIONALLY devoted companions. Loyalty, even in life, seems to be an incredible thing to those that spent their lives in The Hollow Realm. It is bought, sold and traded like currency and so to have a being from The Hollow be loyal to you as their own choice is a pretty amazing thing.
Today, from The Hollow, let's visit-
THOSE OF THE BLACK WATER
In life they are creatures that dwell in the black, sightless depths of the water ways and lakes in the Hollow Realm. They like to lurk where they aren't seen and slowly creep towards anyone stopping at the waters edge. Those that stop had best not ever meet their eyes because if they do, they may find themselves trapped in their gaze and invited to share their deepest darkest secrets and wishes. Anyone not of strong mind will do so, openly. Those of the Black Water will then decide if they so wish to keep the one who has shared the secrets, pulling them down to the icy depths forever, or – potentially even worse than an icy water death- grant them their darkest of desires...
As spirits they are absolutely NOT HARMFUL in any way. Their energy is very strong and their abilities, for some, may prove to be uncomfortable in some ways, but they are NOT harmful. In fact, they can be exceedingly helpful...
As spirit companions, they help their keeper's face their darker side, aid in shadow work, and dig deeply into the things you deeply wish you could change about yourself to help you MAKE those changes. Because of what they help with, they can be uncomfortable at times. The work they aid and help in is VERY uncomfortable work in general, there is no way around that. But it can be very necessary work... And they aren't afraid of it. And they are not afraid of the darker side of who you are. In fact, they will help you to not only face it, but accept it and see it as part of YOU. An important part of yourself that is often ignored, shunned and neglected. We don't like to see the bad parts of ourselves, but we all have them, thats just how it is. So we do tend to ignore it. We don't nurture those parts of ourselves because we don't see them in any way as redeeming. But with the help of Those of the Black Water we can begin to understand WHY we have those parts, what they truly are, where they came from, and that they can be acknowledged and accepted without guilt and without worry that they will rule us.
Truly, Those of the Black Water are some of the most useful beings out there.. But they are not for the faint of heart...
THOSE OF THE BLACK WATER – FEMALE –
An absolutely stunning creature or dark reds and murky greens, she blended into her chosen place to live that was black water with dark green lilypad type plants growing in it that bloomed in the darkest red you can imagine. Her upper half is that of a slightly built woman with light toned skin that is shaded green on her chest, elbows and in her hands. Her fingers are heavily webbed in very dark green and she has very long dark green hair streaked with dark red. Her lower half is that of a strong but slender fish with dark dark ruby scales and strong dark red fins. Her eyes are almost black in colour but up close you can find hints of gold in their depths.
She has a strong but soft voice and strong but soft energy. Always someone who will urger you towards the thigns you truly want and the things you truly need in life. She never backs down when she's on a challenging mission for what is right and what will be helpful to you, no matter what the obstacles may be. She has a way of finding her away around even the most impossible of tasks to get the outcome she desires.
She is a wonderfully supportive, caring and deeply spiritual companion to have and someone who will be incredibly helpful when you need to start facing the darker aspects of yourself. Her way of balancing things, of showing you WHY your darker side is the way it is and what parts of it are perfectly fine and what parts of it you need to work on.. it's just uncanny.
She has a great amount of natural empathy and works very hard for her keeper, but she will push you when you need to be pushed (and I stress that- when you NEED to be pushed, not just when she wants to push you).
She is affectionate and warm but is not sexual in nature.
