Dreaming : We all do it, some of us remember it all and some don't.
My dreams come and go ( the remembering side)and when I need a cosmic ass kicking..that's when they get full on.
You can google the dream meanings and most of the time it doesn't make sense ( well to me anyhow).
So over the years I have learnt to trust my own journey in and of the dream. The theory is, it's our higher consciousness talking to us and we get to work shit out when we dream.
I can still remember dreams that have had a massive impact on me in my waking life. These ones I know they were messages/teachings/learnings from the universe.
Then I get the knowing dreams, like the one I had last night and it always seems to be around animals.
A member of the Parrot family visited me last night, he died and was showing me how he wanted his body honoured.
It was beautiful dream , no sadness just a honouring of body and spirit.
He reminded me of the great Thunderbird or Phoenix. The great Death/Rebirth cycle.
The way that we can use the medicine and honour it at the same time.
He showed me how to pin his wings as if in full flight to represent LIFE
There was fire pit and singing. I was with a couple my sisters who I consider to be "bird Girls".
I don't actually know what type of parrot he was, I think he was a Macaw?
Whether or not he comes to me in real life, remains to be seen.
However I thank his spirit.
So in paying attention to dreams, they always reveal the meaning , maybe not straight away, but eventually
It's supposed to be spring in the great southern land :)
We have had wild weather, particularly in Melbourne : Torrential rain/Floods/wild winds and still quite cool for this time of year .
It's like winter is refusing to let go?
Today it's going to be lovely, however I sorta feel the sluggishness of spring waiting ?
I think she's still in hermit mode, just starting to peak a toe out of the cave.
Like most: the cycles affect me in the body. I can't be "bothered" !! It's like yeahh...next week I'll get to it.
Normally I'm bouncing off the walls with magical energy that spring brings.
Just started to feel a little of the energy return today :) Yay!
We are counting down to Beltane in the southern hemisphere
Beltane is a season of fertility, fire & renewal and we often find this reflected in the magic of the season. Spring magic, from ritual sex to fertility magic, along with the magic found in gardens and nature.
Northern Hemisphere Date: May 1st
Also known as Bealtaine, Walpurgisnacht, May Day, (Northern Hemisphere) & Novey Eve (in Southern Hemisphere).Beltane, the beginning of the summer months is at the November cross-quarter. This is the festival of the Great Rite - of sexual union between Goddess and God. Beltane is the spring fertility festival and there is feasting and celebration - a great festival for lovers! Beltane is the most popular time for Witches to be hand fasted. This is the time when the brilliant red flowers of the Flame Trees highlight Australian forests and gardens. Our famous horse race, the Melbourne Cup, is happily coincident with southern Beltane, being run on the first Tuesday in November and taken as an unofficial holiday across Australia.
Love beltane, because it brings back the sun ,fire and warmth after the long winter when we are still, it's time to be back in nature and align with earth after hibernation.
My body is slowly coming back and I find myself longing to lay in warmth of the rays and watch as the flowers bud.
It's been a long time coming.
Hail and welcome spring :)
