Spirit of White Buffalo

 

Native American myths and culture have always been my inspiration. The first approach to the mysteries of Shamanism in my life was through the  Native American ways of spiritual work. Then I learned about the Scandinavian Shamanism and I discovered the many common things in both paths. My studies and research led me to the knowledge that in its essence the pagan ways are quite alike in the different parts of the world as are the Old religions,too. They all seem to have one origin that is very old and points towards the beginning of human history on Earth.

Here is a wonderful article I found online about the White Buffalo Spirit . This is the Spirit who walks between the worlds and connects the Red Road/ the path of incarnation and physical life / and the Blue Road / the path of the Spirit /.

When you think of Celtic tradition these are Dragons who walk between the worlds and open new realms, in Native American traditions it is White Buffalo Spirit  who connects the worlds.

About the Watchtowers and the Guardians

It is a rule in many Wiccan traditions to strenghten the protection of the magickal space/circle by the help of the Watchtowers. Basically this is calling the four Directions and their corresponding elements arround the magickal circle. If you visualise this, it is a sqare built around the magical circle that is in fact a sphere that holds the magical energy within.

Each one of the four Watchtowers is “inhabited” by the Guardians during the ritual. The Guardians of each Tower are its corresponding elements , elementals, Spirits or corresponding Beings of other planes of existence like Dragons, Archangels , Winds, Spirit Animals and even Stars. The Guardians are given specific tasks by the witch for the ritual : protecting the circle, witnessing the ritual, helping the witch do particular work, open portals for certain energies, Spirits, Beings, Gods  to come into the circle by the witches will.

With this article I am going to give some information about one type of Guardians that are four Stars corresponding to each one of the four directions. I first came to know their names and how to call them and work with them  thanks to Silver RavenWolf /”To stir the magick cauldron”/. These four stars Guardians of the four directions are : Fomalhaut / North/, Aldebaran/ East/, Regulus / South/, Antares / West/.

These stars have been known since Ancient times and were called “Royal Stars”, the Key stars, Archangel Stars.

Fomalhaut

Direction : North

Archangel : Gabriel

Zodiac : Aquarius

Season : autumn

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mercury, Uranus and the Sun

Other name : The mouth of the Fish

This star is also considered Dragon star. Fomalhaut consists of 3 stars : Fomalhaut A is 14 times brighter than the Sun and is a blue dwarf star, it belongs to the  constellation Southern Fish. Fomalhaut B is an orange dwarf star and it is this one that is described as Dragon star. Fomalhaut C is a red dwarf star and belongs to the constellation Aquarius.

The energy of Fomalhaut helps the transition from material towards the spiritual. It gives information, courage, helps with the scientific work and writing and also with the spiritual work.

Aldebaran

Direction : East

Archangel :  Michael

Zodiac : Taurus

Season : winter

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mars and Jupiter

Other names : The eye of the Bull, The Star of Buddha, The Star of the Light, The Eye of God, Alef, Rohini.

This is a double star that consists of a red giant and a dwarf star /M2/. This is the brightest star from the constellation Bull. Aldebaran is situated at the eye of the Bull. Aldebaran is the 14th brightest star in the sky. Its energy is Mars type energy and mostly male energy. It brings courage, honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to seduction, power, wealth. But these are short lived. There is a certain danger of violence. Aldebaran though can be a happy star because it can help one to overcome the lower vibrations through action.  Its negative aspects are violence, obedience, anger, envy, cruelty, arrogance.

Regulus

Direction : South

Archangel : Raphael

Zodiac : Leo

Season : spring

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mars and Jupiter

Other names : The Heart of the Lion, The Little King, The Destructive Step

This is the brightest star in the constellation Leo and one of the brightest stars in the sky. It is situated into the heart of the Lion formed by the stars of the constellation Leo.

Regulus consists of four stars that are two couples. Regulus can affect the human body at the area that is 2 inches above the kidneys. It has a connection with the death and the Ascension of kings and queens.

It brings success, short lived military victory, destruction, military honor, spiritual strength. Regulus provokes ambition, power, independence, a desire to command. This star is connected with the images of lion, cat and sitting king on a throne.

Regulus is one of the 15 Behenian Stars that have magical skills because they are associated with plants and stones. Regulus corresponds with Granite and Mugwort.

Antares

Direction : West

Archangel : Oriel

Zodiac : Scorpio

Season : summer

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mars , Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn

Other names : The Heart of the Scorpio, The Rival of Mars.

In Ancient Egypt Antares was a symbol of the Goddess Selkit.

Antares is a red supergiant star, its size is much bigger than the size of our Sun, by comparison with Antares our Sun looks like a white dot next to a giant red star. Antares is nearing  the end of its life and will explode as super nova. This will not happen in the near future/human time/ and when this happen it will not affect the Earth because of the huge distance between the Earth and Antares.

Antares is the brightest star from the constellation Scorpio and is situated at the heart of the Scorpio. It is the 16th brightest star in the sky. The best moment tp observe it is the time around 31st of May.  It pulsates with red light. Antares has a hot blue giant star twin.

According to an old Egyptian myth Gaia sent the Scorpio to sting Orion who threatened to kill all animals on Earth. The Scorpio killed Orion and later they both were placed on the sky in opposite directions. The Scorpio chases the Mighty Hunter Orion. Antares is considered “ Guardian of the West”. It corresponds with water and carries Mars type energy mixed with the energies of Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn.  Anteres is important for soldiers, it makes one stabborn, warry, brave  and fastens the mind. It gives strategy skills and courage.

 

Note : the stars Fomalhaut and Regulus are also described as Guardians of North / Regulus/ and South / Fomalhaut/ in the articles I found out online , but I work with them considering Fomalhaut as a Guardian of North and Regulus as a Guardian of South / I follow what Silver RavenWolf has written about them/.

Blessed Be

Fairies From all Around the World

Written by Hypatia

For Coven Life

28th April 2018

Over time I have come to understand that we each connect to these beings in such different ways. They are born from the world around us at the time, and connect us to the ethereal.  Some are anthropomorphic, meaning they take human form, some in animal form, some as angels, others take their element form and yet others are all one and the same.

Throughout our childhood they are our spirit guardians and help us see through the veil that has been hung by our modern day adults.

As children we naturally accept what is around us as fact, therefore we engage in play, conversation and even moments of soothing with these beings. In some cultures with ancient origins such beings are encouraged by adults as they sever as protectors for their children. The children then take these guardians into their adult life that protect them till their final days.

As adults in modern day wester cultures we are encouraged to live in what is perceived as “reality”.  A reality that earns money, keeps house, has a family and a solid social network of other people who are also living a reality, that help us keep our reality in check. When someone says to you “Have you done a Reality check lately”? All their trying to say is: are you comparing your life to someone else’s? If it is not on someone else’s track then you better start changing.

This reality which we willingly accept throughout adulthood is what keeps us confined, keeps us chained, keeps us enslaved to this perception of how we need to be, what we need to do and how we need to act.

As soon as an adult experiences moments of visions relating to these beings, modern western society deals with it through medication.  Suppressing their imagination and calling it delusion. In cultures that still hold on to their ancient roots, a child or young adult with such “delusions” would be sent to the local medicine man not to be treated for his illness but to be trained as a Shaman for his gift!

Fairies come into our lives as adults for many reasons. One of the main ones I believe is that they allow us to question what belongs to us and what belongs to someone else. A “Reality Check on the reality check”

In other words are you living your own reality or the reality of everyone else around you?

Fairies encourage you to release your true inner being, your own elemental.

They are your true self as they are made of your very own DNA.

You cannot hide anything from them, lie to them or cheat them because you are doing all that to you. If you do, it manifests as disease, illness of the soul and the mind.

These beings are beloved, feared and revered throughout history and all over the world.

Down here the Indigenous Australians of the North have their fairy beings called Mimi and are displayed in cave paintings from more than 40- 60 thousand years ago!

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimi_(folklore)

Below is a link referencing fairies from all around the world, all four corners and from new world to ancient.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_beings_referred_to_as_fairies

 

In Ireland they have my old time favourite the Pooka. This however is not exactly on the cute sweet scale. There is no fairy more feared in Ireland than the Pooka. People’s interpretation of spiritual beings can be varied. Some have the Pooka as a beneficent spirit, one that plays tricks. Take for instance the old classic movie with Jimmy Stewart called “Harvey” in 1950. He befriends with this beneficent spirit that helps him see the true nature of human beings. Meanwhile while Jimmy is very different from the norm, in this movie he is portrayed as crazy because he takes the time to talk to his Pooka. Therefore the Pooka or Pukka is considered to bring both good and bad fortune. It is whatever we perceive it to be. No one can tell us what is real and what isn’t, this is up to us to decide.

In ancient Greece these spirit fairies came as Nymphs. Usually women, very beautiful and ready to draw in any man to them. In fact this is where the word Nymphomaniac came from.

http://www.theoi.com/Nymphe/Nymphai.html

These were elemental beings that were in the water, forest, trees, air, and even fire.

When connecting to your fairy, try connecting to it through a mediation first, indoors, in a forest, in your backyard, anywhere outdoors, with and without music, with dance, instruments, whatever it takes. When you are confident with its presence then begin to research it. In other words allow your inner being to call your Fay in rather than tarnishing your perception of what your fairy is supposed to look like, do and act. Remember they are an extension of you!

Fairies are nothing new, they have been with man since the dawn of time and hold the secrets to the beginning of the universe. Each and every fairy is unique in the most ethereal manner, why because they are part of the universal code, they are a reflection of our very self. We give them the power to appear to us and in return they share the secrets of the universe.

 

 

 

 

Being a Spiritual One

Merry Meet

As I promised to a dear Sister of the Craft, I post this article to help her and all of you know where you are and where to start from. But remember that there are many other ways . Each one of us reaches the Truth walking her/his own way.

When I came amongst the community of Pagans and Practitioners and had the chance to communicate with You I discovered how different and unique is each one of you and how wonderful the Spiral leading upwards in vibrations looks like here. And I added my Light to Your Light with Love and Trust  and I became one of these who Shine and show the way for others who follow us.

Talking with witches that are highly advanced is a blessing to me. They are my inspiration. There are many who follow the same path and are in a process of learning and reaching the same level. No matter where you are on the upward spiral of the Soul evolution, know that You are unique and gifted. Each one of us is Loved beyond limit. And Yes, we are not perfect . But we are Loved and blessed by the Creator, the God and the Goddess, the Whole . There is no thing like mistake or sin when it comes to the soul and its evolution, this is just learning through experience here on Earth. And I personally am thankful I am not perfect and I learned to love myself as I am. This was the first step in my Spiritual journey  .Love yourself as you are. Accept your dark and your bright facets as ONE.  And we are here to learn perfection. Each single one of us has lots to discover and do. I can tell you a secret now … Come closer, please, and open your heart to hear it. I will whisper it into your ear. Do not be afraid . We are Gods in making .Yes. This is the secret. And it is a long way to reach our full potential and express ourselves as what  we truly are: the Creators of Our Universe. At a soul level this process takes centuries of time, eons of time. And yet, know that Time is an illusion. Because everything happens in the NOW. Let`s make a short exercise :

  1. Think of something you did wrong in the past. Something you want to change and fix and to correct your mistake. You may have insulted someone you love, you may have hurt someone you hate. And now you know this person suffers because of you. This pain that you caused is bothering you, you know that there was another way for you to react, this pain does not leave you even when you sleep. It occupies part of your consciousness.

 

  1. Now when you have chosen what to work for and what to correct, think about it. Why ? Maybe this one caused you something wrong and you reacted out of pain. Or it may be karmic thing coming from a past incarnation. It will repeat and you will be hurting each other in turns/for some centuries forward in 3d time, in more incarnations here or on other planes / untill you both realize it is time for Forgiveness. Forgiveness stops the karmic wheel and gets you out of it and frees your soul. Forgiveness is your chance to take one step higher and take another higher experience in your evolution. Try to capture that whatever you do it turns back to you no matter if it is love or fear. This soul you acted against comes from the same source where you came from. In the vast picture of the Creation we are all brothers and sisters. All souls come from One Source. The souls are like the water molecules of one ocean. Each one affects the others. We are all One. Now , are you ready to forgive? Forgive the soul that caused you pain. Forgive yourself. Can you? Do you have the power to truly forgive with all your heart? If not, then , nothing wrong here. Noone will accuse you of something. You chose to walk your path and continue learning this lesson till you complete it. This is your free will and your birth right to chose. Noone is allowed to interfere your free will. Just continue …till you finally forgive. At the end of each lesson we evolve with higher understanding and true knowledge. Be honest with yourself and do not rush. Walk with your own pace . You cannot be late for the Party Home because time is an illusion.

 

  1. No matter if you succeeded to forgive or not, congratulations! You have just took a journey back in time! You see? You now can travel in Time , you have always done this, but now you are aware of this skill of yours. Time Machine is called Your Consciousness. Your consciousness is your Cosmic Ship that can lead you travel the Universes. Everyone can do time travel . The Now moment is your starting point. This is Your awareness. Time is a sphere. From Now you can go back in the past and you can travel in Future and set the patterns of your desired reality to manifest it here Now on the physical plane. Can you ? Let`s try to go into the Future. Use Now moment.

 

 

  1. Imagine your desired Future. This is what witches call “visualisation”. Visualise it in details. Colours, places, objects. See yourself there. Your Future Self. See yourself living as you like. Think Big! Take actions into your physical reality Now that are in Tune with your desired future. This is what witches call “ doing magic”. Magic is symbolic action representing the desired outcome. Live in the timeline of your desired future. Arrange your everyday life and actions according to your desire. If you want money, just invite the Abundance into your life. Dress well, buy a perfume, attune your conciousness to the thought : “ I am rich and I have everything I need to be prosperious”. Start a new project. Find a better job. Visit a place where you can meet rich people. Stick to this timeline and the results will come to you .

 

  1. Congratulations! You took a journey to the Future! You are amazing and successful each one of you ! Your Presence is highly helpful and appreciated. Blessed Be!

SPIRIT GUIDES & TOTEMS

SPIRIT GUIDES & TOTEMS

BY TAKATOKA

   

I think I could turn and live with animals,
they’re so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, 

not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, 

nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

(“Song of Myself”, Walt Whitman, 1819-1892)

Found this blog post and it has a lot of interesting information about Animal Spirit Guides.

Draconic Magic to seek a Dragon Guide – The Study Of Dragon Magic.

Dragon Magic could be defined as using the aid of a Dragon while working Magic.
The power of Dragons can be a great influence not only in one’s Magical working, but in day to day life as well.

What is Dragon Magic?
Dragons are often called on as guardian spirits. They make for exceptional allies who can be called on in times of need, for protection or guidance. Dragon Magic, like all Magic is made up in its base form from the five main elements that exist throughout the known universe, Fire, Wind, Earth, Air and Spirit. When using Dragon Magic you are in fact calling forth an element in its Dragon form.

Each element and its Dragon has certain Magical qualities, moods and purpose. Each also has positive and negative traits which much be dealt with. Male and female dragons may appear to represent any element, however, Fire and Air are positive energies while Water and Earth are negative energies. It is a form of magic reaching the essence, the wisdom of the Dragons. It is a branch of magic, a specialization. Dragon magic it is said, is one of the oldest magical workings in the world.

What is a Dragon Guide?
A Dragon guide is a  form of spirit guide. What is a spirit guide? The Indians have long found a connection within nature, a guardian that follows them through life, once found to remain by their side. There are many different forms of guidance people reach for. Some people follow Jesus or God, various ancient Gods and Goddesses, Celtic, Egyptian, Norse, Roman. Others reach to Fairies or Angels, Dolphins so why not Dragons?. Tarot, Runes, Crystal Balls, even the Bible, all these are used for the purpose of reaching what most believe is a higher being, a force of ascendance. At some point in their lives most people, even if they do not admit it, look beyond into the mists of spirituality for help, advice or guidance in whatever form they believe in.

In no way is Dragon magic easy or simple. It requires great inner strength and immense patience to walk the path of the Dragon. They are part of the energy found all around us. You may never see them but you may, eventually, feel their presence. This will take time and much practice. A Dragon befriends only to those who are deemed to be worthy and will only show themselves if they are sure that they can trust you.. Dragons are long-lived and with age comes wisdom and patience. Dragons are creatures of wisdom and knowledge, and provided great protection and can lend great power when needed. If you take the time to forge a friendship with Dragons they can become the best companions you would ever want.
