REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Can you recognize a fairy cat? Morgan Daimler has interacted with Fairies since she was a small child. She views them three-dimensionally, not as the limited New Age/media-interpreted versions that many of us are familiar with. She sees them as they are with their full range of emotions and motivations. Telling it like it is, she recounts her system of Fairy Witchcraft, based on decades of personal experience. She goes back to the roots of Celtic pagan wisdom to put it all into perspective, but it’s clear that the information she conveys is not from “book learning”. It comes from contact with the Fey Folk themselves. This very personal recollection has a special air of enchantment about it. As one reads, it becomes clear that Daimler not only has personal experience with the Wee Folk, she has been completely charmed by them. She has not, however, been deluded by “pixie-led glamour”.

Emit the Green Ray Of Nature Itself

EmeraldNatural Emerald Stone

 This heart chakra based energy makes them known as a stone of successful and abundant love.

By helping you to let go of negativity, natural Emerald crystals will create positive actions and outcomes, and give you the strength to overcome any problems in your life.

Within all of nature, in the plants and the grass and the trees you can see this clear green color, and the energy of the green ray.

The energy of nature itself is embodied within stones that carry the green ray, like Emerald stones. These beautiful crystals emit the green ray, a vibration that will open the heart chakra and draw love into your life.

This lovely stone has many excellent qualities, which is why it was chosen to be a May birthstone and is commonly used in engagement rings, as it has a strong loving vibration.

They are stones of manifestation, and although today’s society seems to concentrate on the attributes of manifesting things, including money, this stone brings through much more.

If you desire to use this stone to help you to manifest loving attributes, good health and a peaceful, loving and harmonious existence, or to learn how to stay happy, you might like to have this stone in your life.

Of course it will manifest abundance as well as money, and you all know that of course money is necessary in life.

The green ray is embodied within these lovely stones, and it encourages you to have respect for all life and all of creation.

As you feel this respect within you, it may prompt you to live life in a more loving way.

You may find that your love and emotions begin to resonate with Divine Love.

This is the purest and highest form of love in existence, and you begin living your life from a spiritual, heart based perspective.

Feelings such as compassion, hope, loyalty, encouragement, reassurance, gentleness, kindness, goodness and of course unconditional love, are connected with these emotions, and with all the blessings that are in your life.

 I love emerald gemstones and wear one in my engagement ring every day, but for their metaphysical attributes to benefit you don’t need an expensive stone.

All Emerald stones, including rough or natural pieces like the ones shown here, emit this energy and have an effect on the emotions that are within you.

It will still give you the powerful metaphysical properties that are embodied in this stone but at a lower cost.

There grew upon his hoary head a crop of mistletoe.

All wrinkled and furrowed was this old Willow’s skin,

His taper finger trembled, and his arms were very thin;

Two round eyes and hollow, that stared but did not see;

And sprawling feet that never walked, had this most ancient tree.

The Runes of Odin (12. Jera)

Element : Earth

Star : Sun

Tree : Oak

Plant : Rosemary

Meaning : Harvest

“ You shall reap what you have sown”

Galdr : http://www.sunnyway.com/runes/galdr.html

Pathwalking with the Rune : http://www.northernshamanism.org/pathwalking-with-runes.html

 

Comfort, harmony with others, this rune symbolises the proper thoughts and actions that lead to the proper results. It is good for gardening and farm work, for a happy home and welbeing. Draw Jera with long lasting ink over the front door at New Year Eve and the good fortune will stay in the home until the ink completely fades.

This is the rune of the Harvest, of the gathering of the crops.  It is used in all legal operations and processes. Jera is connected with justice. It can be used for positive outcome after you have spent money , time and effort to achieve something.

Jera is fertility, creativity, peace, harmony, enlightenment. It symbolises the ever lasting movement of the cycles in the Universe.

Jera is used for manifestation into material world, for the fruition of our plans . It is a prise for the efforts that have been made in the past.  Jera symbolises the 12 months of the year and the natural cycles and the change of seasons. Basically this is a positive rune, but it can be also regarded as the outcome of past deeds that means justice.

Jera does not have reverse meaning

Divination : now you are harvesting the results of your actions or efforts, it is a time to celebrate, a time of abundance and joy. But do not forget that winter comes after the summer / autumn. You should gain wisdom for the next challenge. Expect new challenges. You should prepare the soil and plant the new seeds.

The rune is drawn with the thumb starting from top to bottom.

“Jera is a rune of patience and movement with the harmony with natural tides of life. Moving with such life rhythms brings abundance and plenty. The cyclical recurrences in the biosphere and of the astronomical procession spirals through time, and contains many more profound secrets than does our common involvement with linear time, calendar dates and the clock.

Jera has to do with right timing. Jera is in the maxim “This too shall pass”, the proverb, “As you sow, so shall you reap”, and in the modern adage, “time heals all wounds.” Using this rune is the key to understanding the mysteries of time and the psychological importance of dividing and managing time.  Deadlines bring out the best in us and motivate us to grow to levels beyond our present ability. It also moves us to strategically taking action when the time is right. Take advantage of the ups and coast through the downs.

“Jera means “season” or “year”, this rune relates to the cycles of the life. Jera announces the coming in due course of a good harvest if the good gestures were done at the right time. However due to its cyclic action, Jera announces however that it is only temporary, quite as the seasons which pass and follow on infinitely. Everything is in movement and everything returns to the same point because of the Nature’s cyclic movement. Furthermore being connected with Freyr and Freya, the twins gods male and female, Jera symbolizes the mystic union between the Earth and the Cosmos.
