Wunjo is the rune stone symbol for joy, peace.

 

And into the forest I go,

 to lose my mind

 and find my soul.

casting of the runes

If you want to awaken

all of humanity,

then awaken all of yourself.

If you want to eliminate

the suffering in the world, then

eliminate all that is dark

and negative in yourself.

truly, the greatest gift

you have to

give is that of your

own self-transformation.

…..Lao Tzu

Raven is a bird surrounded by ancient lore…..much of which has flavored perception of ravens today. The raven is a clever, mysterious and most intelligent bird. Actually I am beguiled by any creature who crosses my path and raven is no exception. This one is a Druid bird casting the runes and holding the rune Dagaz. This is the rune of transformation. Shaped like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. The rune of awakening, awareness representing a paradigm shift which is now occurring.

‘Little Buddha’ is a northern pygmy owl …..tiny, ferocious and so cute.

 

When you really laugh….. for those few moments you are in a deep meditative state. Thinking stops. It is impossible to laugh and think together………..Osho

My partner and I frequently experienced calamities within our business…..so in order to take ourselves out of our mind mess we would ‘fake’ laugh until we both were drawn into belly laughing and tears. Really cleared the air and put us on track again. I highly recommend this therapy when you are really wound up and sitting quietly just ain’t gonna do it.

Indigenous people believe that the owl has very soft and gentle ways, similar to the softness of an owl’s feather, and these ways were taught to them in the healing ways. Therefore, whenever owl feathers were worn by an individual, it often meant that they were a medicine person with healing abilities.

‘It is time to walk away. Something new is manifesting and cannot appear until you release what you are holding onto so fiercely.’
-Long-Eared Owl

Go where the Mother’s blanket 

heals you, where she gives you

new dreams…if you learn to live

in these places, you will live through 

these times…this is the time to 

relearn how to live with the Earth.

it is a time to honor Spirit, to listen

to the Mother, to reawaken our

emotional awareness so we can

communicate with the higher octaves of

reality, upon this sacred egg we call

…..Earth.

prophesy

My favorite bird and I love the myths surrounding this corvid.  Ravens are magical beings and, if there are any predictions to be given to us, I am positive that Raven will be the one to do the job.

How Raven brought Light to the world…….

Once the whole world was dark….inky, all-consuming dark. The reason for this blackness was that an old man who lived in a house by the river hid all the light in a tiny box. He did this because he was afraid to see whether or not his daughter was ugly.

Now, Raven, in a ploy to steal the light shrinks himself to become a hemlock needle in a basket of drinking water so that the daughter will swallow him. Soon Raven is reborn from her as a human child/raven. The old man accepts him as a grandson and soon Raven begs and pleads with the old man to open the box which holds the light. When the old man finally opens the box containing the light, Raven grabs it and flies out of the house—causing light to spread throughout the world and revealing that the old man’s daughter is as beautiful as the fronds of a hemlock tree.

As Raven flies away, Eagle sees him and tries to steal the light, causing Raven to drop some of it, which becomes the Moon and the stars.
