Wake up with a Unicorn

  
WAKE UP WITH A UNICORN 

’You don’t know anything about me’ Zoonie sighed,
her jaw tightly clenched, settling down for the night.
’Well whose fault is that’? Cornelius retorted’
all of my friendly attempts, you have thwarted’ 

‘I’m an enchanted Horse with a sword on my head,
a protector of magic, happiness and dreams ahead.
If you have a Unicorn to be your best friend,
you are extra special and on me you can depend’ 
 
Zoonie glanced over,  twinkling hopes, on her face,
‘Okay then, let’s begin with a furry hug of embrace’
Cornelius whispered back in welcoming response
‘Let go of your grief Zoonie, it’s time to move on’

Cornelius advised that there be just one rule:
‘Remember stars sparkle, between me and you.
Two precious hearts in a a mystical union,
now begins the alchemy of happiness infusion. 

It will be sweet to see Zoonie laughing again, 
this is a true story, I wish to have a happy end.

Has a Unicorn ever crossed your path? 

The mythical unicorn has long been a source of enchantment. Solitary, swift and graceful, the unicorn had a single spiralling horn growing from its forehead. Sought by many, the unicorn’s horn was said to have medicinal and magical properties. 

It is said that Unicorn energy heals what ails you

Unicorn Symbolism & Meaning

Happy International day of the Unicorn on April 9th.

To The Market




TO THE MARKET

Sow ~ Hau (Cymric)

Generosity. Nourishment. Discovery.

Sow, with her large litters symbolise abundance and fertility. Giving generously and freely, knowing that you in turn, are nourished and sustained. 

The Pig as nourisher.
The celts farmed pigs to such a degree that, they were noted for having such enormous herds of swine, that they had an abundant supply for salt meat.

The ability of pigs to discover the earths secrets is one of the reasons why the pig is so important in the Druid tradition. Both female and male pigs are sacred to the Goddess. The Sow representing her life giving aspect. The Boar symbolising her life taking. So much so that the Sow is used in ritual practice on Halloween.
The Druid Animal Oracle ~ Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm

Halloween Ritual
Yr Hwch Ddu Gwta
. The Stocky Black Sow.
Tailless black sow. To scare children.

Cerridwen, Welsh Goddess of Transformation, Inspiration and Knowledge  was also known as White Sow.

The Celts viewed Pig as a sacred animal – both the wild boar and the domesticated female pig, the sow. They associated sow with the cycles of birth and death, regeneration, the moon, the underworld and intuitive wisdom.


Cooking Queen ~ Ceridwen

Bear Man

“As in the star system of ‘The Great Bear”?

“Yes, that’s right”

Associated with primal power and insight,

one of the brightest stars in the night skies.

 

Ursa Major of the Northern Polaris connects you, 

with the deepest affinity of your ancestral roots.

Mythology is filled with ancient tales,

the process of exploration, as changes prevailed.

 

Devoid of electronic systems in bygone times,

Druids were guided by stars; as planets aligned.

Living life for them was very different,

they appreciated the natural world as significant.

 

Viewed in reality from another perspective,

using symbolism to meet  potential objectives.

Ancients tell of the guiding ‘Light of King Arthur’

“Art” as Bear Man, God Artorius and mighty Warrior.

 

Primal shamanism was used in ancient times,

as their only navigation, sphere and guide.

Shining his ‘Bear light’ in dark of Winter season;

united this star with influence of animal; for a reason.

Owl In Sights

All knowing, intuitive and wise,
seeing beyond the darkest of nights.
In contemplation of it’s primal senses,
clarity of sight, in all circumstances.

The visible world, a universe of spirit,
a cosmos inhabited by other beings.
Aware of deception, illusions and lies,
savvy in knowing, what is true and right.

Intertwined within the conscious web of life,
an esoteric network, that will not die.
A visit from Owl; deciphers what is true,
be alert, to his secrets, shared with you.

Upon hearing his screech in night,
he calls another soul to take flight.
Beginning or end, birth or death?
on the threshold of life, be mindful yet.

CELTIC WISDOM: OWL
(Gaelic – Cailleach-Oidhche – Crone of the Night)

Owl teaches us the wisdom of turning adversity into opportunity.

The Traditional Story of the Owl;
The idea that the Owl is ancient – is found in Welsh tradition, in the stories of Culhwch and Olwen. Tales are told of King Arthur and his Knights and a journey which is taken by; “Gwrhyr”- (Interpreter of Tongues)

Where Wolves?

WHERE WOLVES?

Wolves and dingoes are much the same,
the Celts revered them and bred them to fame.
In Wales, Blaiddudd is their Brythonic name.
representing ‘intuition’ as your inner wilding to tame.

Celts used their furs, on rugs they would sit,
their pelts renowned to protect; had you known this?
Despite today’s scary tales, of werewolves and such,
in ancient Druid times, Wolves were loved very much.

Modern stories tell, how wolves are bad,
todays distortions and myths, make me sad.
Positive traits and accolades that i find;
Boy scouts are named “Wolf Cubs” as sacred signs.

Again, in the ‘Jungle Book’ by Rudyard Kipling,
or Merlin’s friendship with a wolf, Ceridwen gifted him.
Wolf brings a strong sense, of loyalty,
inner strengths, courage and tutorial qualities.


Never fear your inner Wolf’s instincts and power,
his strength will support you, when feeling disempowered.

Animal Instincts

tree walk the thoughts from the wild
Image: Thoughts From The Wild 

There are desires to be wild, inside of us all,
stop to listen, you will hear their call.
To know your own animal instincts, you must,
before your bones, vanish in to dust.

Learn the folklore, of the survival of the fittest,
or risk feeling insignificant, within society limits.
What about the loss of your own self-esteem?
forgetting to follow your purpose, vision and dreams.

Even if you feel misunderstood, or misaligned,
You are spiritually and physically protected at all times.
Valuable insights, ideas and new teachings come your way,
pay close attention, to what your animal nature, has to say.

Listen, hear

crow in sky

Can you hear me?

can you see me?

i’m big, black, shiny and beautiful,

a secret unknown, an omen of mystery

 

Do you hear me caw?

don’t be afraid, i’m not that scary, at all.

i’m clever and intelligent, i’d recognise your face

i can even mimic other birds voice traits.

 

Loved and revered by ancient shamanic tribes

a protector, prophetic and known as, life guides

who am i, do you know?

see, listen, hear, i’m a big black beautiful bird

cawed the crow.

 

Protectors and healers, back in Celtic days

listen to us cawing, now don’t be afraid.

Don’t Stone the Crows

DO THEY GET A BAD PRESS?
I love these beautiful big black birds, but I believe that they are really under appreciated.

crow

ANIMAL INSTINCTS

CROW ` Be very watchful over the next couple of days for any clear omens or signs that will guide and teach you. Expect a big change very soon. You’re about to get a glimpse into some future event that affects you directly.

Stephen D Farmer ~ Animal Spirit Guides.

https://www.spirit-animals.com/crow-symbolism/

When our little crow friend is calling, it is to tell us that the time of change is here. It’s time to step into our authentic power.

Crows not only harbour the message of change, but also remind us about the creation and magic all around us. The crow’s striking black colour represents the colour of creation. This is a representation of the immense power each and every one of us holds to take hold of our own destiny.

Hare and there

DRUID ANIMAL ORACLE

HARE Gearr

Rebirth. Intuition. Balance.

The Hare is a sacred creature of the Goddess, the moon and the night.

In this, or the other world the Hare represents immortality and intuition, bearing good fortune. During the Spring equinox, the hare is the original Easter Bunny. The symbolism of the Easter egg, means containing ‘all potential’, full of promise and new life.

~ Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm.

Boadicea used a Hare to divine the outcome of her first battle.

Albatross ~ Prince of Waves.

Teaches us grace, coming into our lives to show us how to use our bodies in ways that help us move fluidly through any conditions that can seem even treacherous to our wellbeing.

The Albatross is a master at wandering. Teaching us the value of simply finding new roads and pathways; in order to find the road less travelled, if it looks like it might yield more nourishment. ~ Animal/Insect/Plant Totems & Medicine

STATUS UPDATE !!ENDANGERED!!

With a wingspan of over 2 meters (over 7 feet), the short-tailed albatross is the largest seabird in the North Pacific. Its long, narrow wings are adapted to soaring low over the ocean. https://www.nationalgeographic.org/media/endangered-albatross/

The albatross is vulnerable to predation from sharks, large fish and long-line fishing.

Cats, a Tonic

 

"In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not 
forgotten this" ~ Terry Pratchett

Cats, a Tonic

Can you tell me?

why does a cat always get the best of the cream?

it seems from their characteristics,

that their attitudes,  we should glean.

 

Independent and elegant, but loving, furry and kind,

although, they always makes their own purrrfected ‘them’ time.

 

Consider now then, the personality traits of a Cat,

self-sufficiency, well yes, you can see that, for a fact!

magical, mysterious, but with a big love for their ‘self’

if they can be bothered, they may show you, affection as well.

 

Free spirits, flirting, hypnotic eyes of charm

then why couldn’t we imitate “THEM”?

it would not do US any harm.
