Rhiannon’s Birds

rhiannon mannaz gateway calling enchantress blackbird celtic world .jpg

Can you hear the Blackbirds calling?

then don’t turn away,

from the culture, or darkness, of the enchanted gateway.

 

Their sweet, harmonious songs possess great healing powers,

at twilight they call, during those mystical hours.

Urging us onwards, between the gateway of two worlds,

to follow the path of our highest purpose.

 

There are times when you must answer the call of your soul,

exploring inner worlds, is the task and the goal.

Heed well, the ‘Druid Dhubh’ Blackbirds song,

urging you get closer, to where you belong.

 

Rhiannon was their mistress, it was to her, that they called,

beyond the entry of ethereal, other worlds.

Possessed with deep magic, which could manifest dreams,

She was a good Witch, a healer and courageous queen.

 

Great Welsh horse Goddess,

invoking artist, singer and poet,

Another Celtic legend and myth, forgotten,

or had you known it?

Hang in there, slow down and get ready for a heart-centred month.

November ~ is the ‘Spiritual Messenger’

The inspired healer and the wounded healer

This can manifest in every way imaginable—from coping with crisis to embracing massive success.

Above all, seek balance in all aspects of your life.

a ‘Secret’ calling ~ Cailleach

Cailleach the crone was a spiritual warrior, true

her animal guidance gave her secrets, to seer through.

yet another animal found synonymous with her

was the wise Owl, have you not heard?

 

A bird of wisdom, ominous, esoteric signs

holding sacred callings with our most Divine

as we approach, this eve of Samhain

reminders to us, about what happened, again.

 

Legends and history are written back there

of ancient goddesses who existed, to be fair.

Cailleach is another heroine of this story

sadly we’ve forgotten her traditions and glory.

 

She, the crone of the dark night,

who held super ‘natural’ powers and inner sights.

owls are creatures of knowing and wisdom,

esoteric, soulful, attuned with inner listening.

 

Reminders when, to way back in olden days

ancient Celts listened to wildlife and what they had to say

psychic, mystic, enchantress or witch

it is up to you, how do you? see that gift?

The Sacred Faith

“When we let go of the belief, that we are greater than nature
we will find that material existence is not the where and with all.
Our ancient Celts treasured each part of this natural world
Myths stories, folk customs and sayings, all relate to animals
and the nature of world ” ~
(The Druid Animal Oracle ~ Philip and Stephanie Car-Gomm)

owl rune tiwz britwitch

Celtic Wisdom of the Owl ~ (Gaelic ‘Cailleach-Oidhche’ ~ Crone of the Night)
Wisdom, Clairvoyance, Detachment.

“The Owl in Celtic Mythology ~ Spiral of death and rebirth.
The Owl, as its found within Celtic lore, is a creature of shadows and the Otherworld. Truthfully, the bird is rarely even mentioned in myth, legend, or folklore at all”

Owl teaches us the wisdom of turning adversity into opportunity. 
Twilight has been described as owl-light, and it is said to be ideal to go out for a walk in the woods at this time of night, to develop
a sensibility to the “Otherworld.” … and the inner soul of Nature. 
If you are attracted to a study of secret knowledge, working
 with the Owl as your ally will help you to do this. 
The Traditional Story of the Owl;
The idea that the Owl is ancient – is found in Welsh tradition.

 

The Owl is the animal which symbolises secret wisdom. There is a belief that if you

hear an Owl’s call this was an omen of a new birth or death. The Owl’s exceptional hearing enables it to pick out and swoop on unsuspecting prey during the night.

Lost Heroines

“Oh, come on,” said she, to those wanna be macho men,

“What about our female warrior heroines then?”

Myths, stories and legends, coincidentally lost,

but at whose heart, was that cost?

 

It’s not, all about manly, masculine bravery,

violence and bloodshed, is all, so unsavoury.

Womenfolk are true spiritual warriors,

“Why can’t we hear more about brave women and followers”?

 

Take a look back, search in times past,

the women assisted, their men to hold fast.

Their female intuition and wisdom, helped men make decisions,

but now they are famed, with mockery and derision.

 

This search was difficult, to find old myths and stories,

men have self sought their own fame and glories.

Little or no mention of women warriors, is given,

only in judgements, about whoring and sinning.

 

Yet, have no doubts or misgivings,

women were guiding almost all of their men’s missions. 

No, I’m not a supporter of women’s lib,

but, advocating that all true facts should be writ. 

 

Who will our young girls now, have to look up to and follow?

Most of their female heroines of today, appear fake and hollow.

The Veiled One ~ Cailleach ~ Crane

Halloween calls upon Cailleach, our White Winter Witch,

triple Goddess, the queen of who, which,

ruled the dark days between Samhain and Beltane.

Daughter of the moon, forever, will remain.

 

In legends dating back from when in Christian times,

Cailleach was sometimes said, to have been a nun”

links to her name, otherwise known as; “The Veiled One”

 

Mover of mountains and of sacred stones,

wise, shape-shifting, from maiden, Goddess, then into crone.

Living inside the realms of unconscious, within,

where all of our hopes, desires and dreams begin.

 

Great mysteries of the Divine

who will answer this rhyme?

it was and always shall be…

 

In God’s own, good time.

CELTIC CRANE (Corr)

A bird that was synonymous with Cailleach.

Secret knowledge. Patience. Longevity.

The Crane was sacred to early Celts. Bringing the qualities of patience and perseverance, the Crane will stand for long periods of time peering into the water, until the time is right for it to dart at its prey.

“Fehu” rune is a stanza of nourishment and growth;

ambitions, abundance, all of life’s dreams and hopes.

Runic stave, representative of Freya and Celtic of Bo’,

honouring our mothers sustenance, as they, to us, have bestowed.

S E X …

Now do I have your attention?
here is a mystery; I’d like to mention.
Where are our female warriors, from medieval days past?
has history forgotten them, but why? may I ask.

Remember Freyja? the Goddess of Sex and Love,
our ‘Lady’ signifying beauty, marriage, have you heard of?
Beautiful, beloved wife of Óðr.
she is a legend; do you want to know more?

A seer, who folklore tells, knew everyone’s fates,
by means of ‘enchanting’ to keep everything, in place.
Mystery and arguments still persist to this day,
which myths are true and why were they told that way?

Freyja; represents our female, inner awareness,
nourishing, sex, power, nurturing and caring.
Yet Gods have entire books, devoted to their heroic ventures,
why then, are women’s lives hushed up, censored?

Merely, a sentence to report on female lore,
wouldn’t you like to know so much more?
Folklore deity: was written by men,
oh what, why? Females are forgotten again!

Where are books written about womanly lives?
are they purposely hidden, by ancient male scribes?
Although, there are some, whose stories have survived,
simply because with male Gods; they were entwined.

Where are those courageous, unmarried women’s stories?
telling of their magnificence, splendour, achievements or glory.
Oh but, I know that I’ll have a long wait,
little is written in recognition to a female’s credit or fate!

Way Finding ~ Runic Compass ~ Vegvisar

vegvisir viking workshop way finders .jpg

way f I n d e r

 

“I want to get a tattoo” said I,

a runic compass to protect and guide;

a Mimir warrior in his great wisdom said:

“the Vegvisir would be perfect, to guide your way ahead”

 

vegvisir way finders .jpg

 

This Runic compass “Vegvisir” literally means;

“way-finder” guiding you towards the path of your dreams.

Made from sunstone, a sun compass of sorts;

Representing South, East, West and North.

 

Steering the road forwards, that for you, is best.

the nail in centre, poised permanently, towards your quest.

Holy, sacred, symbolic, circumventer,

devoted to guidance, balanced, centred.

 

 

Suns shadows point, purpose through day,

apparently, Viking warriors sailed their ships in this way.

Storms and high seas, may have come,

but Vegvisir would guide all back, to the safety of home.

 

It is a sign of great protection, ascertained to your own path,

“Oh yes” I replied, “I’d like to dedicate my vision to that”

We each have a special gift; a buried treasure within our hearts,

when we begin to share this impulse; courage makes a start.

There is a Rune called Gebo, that describes exactly this.

You will recognise this symbol, it is shown as a kiss X.

 

The only stipulation, is that you need to be,

flexible, adaptable and respectful, do you see?

We each have different perspectives, as individuals, we may be.

 

If you are true to you, and I am true to me,

together we’ll find our potential, in friendship and harmony.

Good luck to light your way
