    (I hope I put this in the right place!)

    I remember seeing a post about this on Kitsuhana before the site was remade, but still interests me.
    You probably already know, but in case you don't, hoshi no tama (star ball, or I guess sometimes called kitsune ball) are supposedly balls of energies (that are much like souls) that all kitsune have.

    I wanted to ask what are your opinions on hoshi no tama? Do you believe kitsune did indeed had them?
    If so, do you believe you still have yours?

    (I was going to say kitsune experince but no this is the right one since your asking opinions. Experince is more for comparing experinces with, for example hoshi no tama. easy example, such a cheap skate...)

    I have never been sure what to think about hoshi no tama honestly. I have read about them a lot yet I can never seem to figure out if I have one. From what I can tell their basically supposed to house our souls for protection. I feel like lore and mythology is missing some kind of key information on me. Not quiet sure what though?

    I've seen something like this usually when I meditate. I see a small orb, about the size of an orange, that floats in front of me, glowing dimly with pale blue light. I believe, if I have a hoshi no tama, that this would most likely be it.
    When I was taught to meditate, I was told to focus on my own energy and have it take form in front of me.
    Historically, a Kitsune's hoshi no tama was described as being a portion of its power, or soul in some cases. Legend has it that if you were to take it from a Kitsune, they would do whatever you want to get it back. I'm not sure if it is tangible enough for someone to take nowadays, but whenever I see this ball of light, it feels like my most precious possession.

    Interesting, that's the first time I have heard of any kitsune ever experiencing something with a hoshi no tama. I was also on kitsunehana before the revamp.

    I'm not sure if it was my hoshi no tama for sure, but based on what I know about them, this would be my best educated guess. In fact im pretty sure anyone could do this, focusing on your core, envision your energy, and then mentally bringing it out. It won't be a physical manifestation, obviously, but you should be able to precieve it with your mind. Give it a try next time you meditate (if you do, that is. I'm not sure of any other methods of doing this)

    Oh I know and it's probably a good guess. I will, it'll be a while however. I want to be done with this pregnancy and healed first.

    Interesting! While I don't usually meditate, I think I'll give it a try!

    Congratulations, and I also wish you a swift recovery!

    Thank you both, actually pretty scared. My first labor was horrible, but this isn't the place to talk about that. Haha.

    I hope we get more Kitsune's here soon so we can get more imput from others.

    You know we're here for you, even in spirit.:)
    I'm sure more will find their way here, it just takes time.

    @Johnny Phox Thank you again, makes me feel a little better.

    I hope so, it sorta feels kitsune empty...

    I look at it this way: before I found kinmunity, I was the only Kitsune I knew. After I joined and found this group, I found at least three more. Statistically speaking that's a 400% increase. I just know, given time, more will find us.

    Understandable. I used to be on Kitsunehana before it was altered. Knew a lot of kitsunes. It was actually pretty overwhelming so smaller numbers are nice however... I'd like... maybe 10?

    @ktuck2020 I'm honestly not suprised they come in different colors. Why not write an intro for the group. Just a quick hello is fine, the sticky covers the basics. Nothing like the scent rolling threads.

    I can't tell if I have a star ball. I might, but I might also be tricking myself. It's hard to tell. What I can sense of it could very easily be my imagination, and in any case it doesn't seem too useful.

    It may be that you haven't found a way to sense it yet, have a go at it, you might be surprised. As for its usefulness, think of it as part of your internal anatomy, just because you're not necessarily aware of it doesn't mean it doesn't serve a purpose.

    "Have a go at it"? Forgive my obliviousness, but I don't know what you mean by that! And I suppose that might be true, that its purpose may not be obvious. Still, I'd like to learn precisely what it does somehow.
