This community was created by the user sashstar as a place for people to gather who have or are interested in alternative belief systems. Please read the community rules before posting here, they are fairly simple. Feel free to discuss anything relating to the broad category of New Age. Some examples of subjects are those found in our community's list of interests. Enjoy! =)
Respect Others. Basic rule, treat other people the way you would want to be treated yourself. Everyone has the right to be here, beginners, novices, intermediate, experienced, or advanced – all are welcome and deserve to be treated with equal respect in the community. Also, please remember that everyone's point of view is their point of view, disagreements are OK, fights are not OK. I feel I must mention that if any thread turns into bickering or any type of bashing or personal attacks, it WILL be frozen for comments and/or deleted. Discussions of views and values are welcome, encouraged even, but disrespectful behaviour will not be tolerated. This is a welcoming community, all opinions (excluding any that glorify/encourage dangerous, violent, or risky behaviours) are valid here.
Please Keep All New Age-Related Advertisements Under a LJ Cut! The only type of advertisement I will allow in this community are those which are directly related to any New Age subject. HOWEVER... when posting an advertisement, I ask that you please put it under a lj-cut tag (read Faq #75 for instructions on how to do a lj-cut). This is so our community isn't overwhelmed by advertisements, it will be easier for users to read through the community, and I thank you for your cooperation on this matter.
Please, use LJ Cuts when posting images! If you don't know how to use a LJ cut, there is a tutorial on how to do so here. An exception to this rule would be if you're posting an emoticon (a smilie) that goes with what you're saying.
Please, use LJ Cuts when posting long entries! Use common sense, if the entry is long, just put it in a LJ Cut (see here for how to use them).
Please stay on topic! This is a community about New Age, so please use it to just post about New Age related topics. Also, if you're commenting on a post, please stay on the topic that the original post was on. This is a fairly loose rule, as there is no one set-definition of what New Age is exactly. For sake of this rule, I'm going to define New Age as any beliefs related to alternative spirituality, if you are unsure of what this means please feel free to ask me and I will explain in further detail. Basically, please don't go on wild tangents, that's all. ;D
Please use proper spelling and grammar when posting. An honest spelling mistake is OK, spelling words incorrectly on purpose (i.e. writing "4get" instead of "forget" or "kewl" instead of "cool") is not OK. Live Journal provides a spell checker for you, use it. Don't type like you're illiterate or an idiot. DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, and DoN't TyPe LiKe ThIs PlEaSe! Using capital letters to emphasize a point or in initials etc. is OK, but typing an entire post in capital letters is not OK.
Suggestions are always welcome! This community is always growing and changing, so if you have a suggestion on how to improve the community please contact Kimberly (dream_augur) at the email ksagrillo at gmail dot com, I'd love to hear what you have to say! =)
