    If you think about the amount of specific things that had to happen to just exist, we are all pretty special for even being alive. I think instead of saying how unspecial we are, maybe we should instead say that it DOESN'T MATTER if we are godkins or some other crazy thing. We are all pretty awesome.

    I personally don't think anyone can be anything except human, and since IMHO Merlin didn't exist and Norse gods aren't human...well, you aren't blood relatives (seeing as how they don't even have blood.) If you are drawn to the mythology of Merlin and the Norse pantheon, you should get to know them. That's a great plan. You don't need to be related.

    Frankly, I can't imagine anyone here will be able to tell you who you used to be, and reincarnation and blood ancestors are different things. You real actual ancestors are probably interesting enough. Want to know where you come from? That's what genealogy is for.

    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Was referring to the person who gave said reading of your auric field. In truth I've only ever read or heard of one instance where Merlin's lineage was shown to have created a child. That being the movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice where they are looking for the Prime Merlinian. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0963966/

    I am curious though why it is important to you to prove this lineage? Consider if you truly are then it also makes you a prime target for any force that played counter to either the Merlin stories or opposed a particular god / goddess figure. Of which there are many in both story lines for consideration. Considering that if you believe it true and pertaining to yourself then you have to consider that any force that by legend opposed either of them is also true and projecting into the present. Which raises the stakes even higher if all it takes to find you is anyone reading your supposed auric field and sensing your godspawn or possess the power trace of Merlin.

    Using the Hellenic perspective that could potentially paint you as Hercules to some unseen Hera that seeks to destroy or harm you. Yet so many forget the counter aspect when they are revealing all these great powers or past histories. Myself I still think your friend is talking crap and pulling your leg but that's just me given I tend to think such would not be revealed via ones aura if it were to actually exist.

    No, I don't think so if one considers the many things that had to happen to any species to exist. We're not special were just a product of evolution. Perhaps one of many other experiments that were all ongoing at the same time and we just happened to be the vat that survived past various bottlenecks in biological development or termination. I seem to recall that something like 600,000 thousand years ago a super caldera eruption wiped out roughly 95 percent of humanity and only a small fragment of it survived to continue to create today's animal.

    So no were not special, no more special than any other living creature upon this floating rock in space.

    My past before finding this out from my friend has had numerous things have occured that aided in this but i seem to be seeb as a fake. but i do not care. I know i have encountered unknown things since a young age. i do not seek this information to use it in any way. i seek it to ease my mind. i do know some of the geneology of my family and yes there is interesting notes but something has me compelled to know the information i join this forum.

    My point, you missed it.

    I'm a pantheist. I think everything is special and part of god. So right, we aren't any more special than any other creature, but that doesn't make an individual not special in their own way because those creatures are special too. Of course, your mileage may vary, but that's where I'm coming at this from.

    Just my opinion but your trying to use one thing to suggest or justify another. Encountering unknown things does not make one a god spawn or descendant of Merlin. Heck simply by reading and studying about many occultish topics will increase the likelihood of having encounters with strange or unusual things. It's like casting a light into the darkness which makes things want to come see what is in the light. It also causes one to change their way of looking at things and giving more consideration to things which otherwise would be ignored in most instances if acknowledged at all.

    Of course when one starts down an occultist pathway the first thing that has to be proven is ones own sanity. Not a slam but a critical analysis of our experiences and perspectives upon things. The human mind is quite capable of creating or viewing nothing and making it something as it tries to place it into a category. Then figure most if not all of our memories are filled by association so when we see, hear, smell something its logged to the closest thing we can equate it to. IF the closest thing is the unknown then that is what it becomes many times until we learn something new or have further situations which can refine it for us.

    I had an encounter with a man who insisted I change course late one night as I walked a railroad track home. I did and discovered two things. One the course I had been following would have probably killed me as there was a horrific wreck at the time I would have been there. Yet the part that was strange was the man was related to me and just happened to have died the day of my birth some 16 or 17 years earlier. Things like that are common to me but it doesn't mean I am a god spawn or descendant of any famous person, especially a Merlin famous person.

    With ancestry and tracking back it gets really difficult. Consider that many families did not have surnames until around the 12th to 13th century. Some groups had clan names and such earlier but then that only tracks to a Clan not a given family within that Clan except for its direct line. Consider Morrison is part of my ancestry yet all that tells me is I descend from someone who was known as The Son of Morris and headed that Scottish Clan. It doesn't tell me which family or the specific family given that any group that owed allegiance to the Morrison Clan also used the name though they were not lineage wise Morrison's.

    Re: crossed bloodlines

    Many Heathens view one or more of the gods as literal ancestors. The Swedes are (generally) descended from Ing (Fro Ing, Frey), the Norse from Thor, and the Danes from Odin. The Rigsthula tells of Heimdall, using the name Rig, being the father of the human race (similar to the story in Rigveda).

    To be honest - an aura reading is highly unlikely to tell you your ancestry. I think - as far as truth goes - that the best you are going to do is to say that you feel drawn to Merlyn, or the Norse deity... or indeed both.

    And there is nothing wrong with that. You are not being shortchanged. But you will be honest with yourself instead of clinging to something that is going to be impossible to prove one way or another.

    I once met someone, many years ago, who swore they could trace their lineage back 45,000 years. He was wrong. He couldn't.

    But we each of us have ancestors going back 45,000 years, of course. And we are - like it or not - all related to each other at some level.
