Lessons to learn…

Dear reader, it’s been one heck of a journey since my last blog!  Having embarked on a path with Goddess I have discovered that it is not all twinkles and fairy dust.  Don’t get me wrong there are times that have been wonderful and amazing, there have also been times when I seriously thought I […]

WOW!

What a time, autumn equinox, super moon, blood moon goodness knows what else, its all very confusing. Confusing you say, how so?  Energies, huge shifts in energies, everyone complaining of not sleeping, head aches, feeling tired etc, etc. but suggest that it has anything to do with lunar events and everyone thinks your…well a luny.

The Lady of Avalon

She appears in the curling mists of dawn, Her shape shifts within the violet gauze, hypnotizing, beautiful, shimmering with every unspoken sign, muting into whatever She wills, whatever She perceives we need, Maiden, Mother,Crone, all are large within her, hidden, yet seen in everything, felt within ourselves as the moving of time, in the awaiting of a destiny unknown, […]

What it’s all about

It has been pointed out to me, by a very dear friend, that it might be an idea to explain the reasons for writing about the things I write about, if that makes sense.

If you have read my previous blog ‘Long time no blog’ you will know that I spent many years seeking the ‘other’.  During this time I came across the craft of  the shaman in a Lady called bear medicine song, I was fascinated by the way she practised, I could feel a connection with something that was completely different from anything thing before.

I began reading and researching, I found the wheel of the year and the different festivals that were celebrated by our fore bearers many years ago, I saw how they were far more connected to nature and the changing of the seasons.  I wanted to know more and experience them for myself.  The universe heard me and I found a lady, not far from where I live, who is a shamanic practitioner , she holds regular monthly meetings and also holds workshops to celebrate the seasonal festivals.  Well that was it I was in!  I cannot tell you how glad I was.  I went and  shared in the celebration of Samhain, which occurs after the autumn equinox, Winter Solstice which is just before Xmas, Imbolc which is just before the spring equinox, Lammas which is just after the summer solstice. The Beltane celebration I was unable to attend. But it was at Imbolc, at the time when the land starts to wake after winter, when the seeds start to stir as the ground warms, that was when I had my first encounter of The Goddess Bridgit, She has many names in every place on the Earth, She was revered at a time when the gender of female was recognised as the bearer and creator of life, Her many facets and faces were seen and celebrated as the seasons changed.  All beliefs at that time were based on the matriarchal and creative nature of Devine feminine.

One of the totem animals for Bridgit is the swan, before I knew any of this I felt myself drawn to swans and took and collected photographs of them.  One of my most sacred possessions is a swans feather which I found whilst out walking one day.  I was so excited by this gift I cannot tell you!  I see feathers as a sign from spirit so a Swan feather was just wonderful to me, then when I found its significance to Goddess Bridget, well it just blew my socks off!  Her colour for Imbolc is White and the Snowdrop is a flower for this time in the year, hence my title, White Feathers Talk.

Seeing the signs

The words ‘words are not always needed’ may seem odd on a site that’s all about using words.  Sometimes though, through all the hustle and bustle of life, we miss things that could make our lives easier to understand. Often I here people say ‘ everything is a battle these days, a bit of help […]

The Sapling

The tiniest of saplings is mighty in its quest, its roots reach down into the very essence of life,finding nurture not just in water and earth, but from the eternal spring of Spirit Mother that flows through every place that exists. She creates and sustains all things. tiny sapling knows that as his roots reach […]
