“I desired dragons with a profound desire. Of course, I in my timid body did not wish to have them in the neighborhood. But the world that contained even the imagination of Fáfnir was richer and more beautiful, at whatever the cost of peril.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

‘The Shaman as Poet of Consciousness’

‘The Shaman as Poet of Consciousness’

‘…Our earliest poets were shamans. Today as in the earliest times, true shamans are poets of consciousness who know the power of song and story to teach and to heal. They understand that through the play of words, sung or spoken, the magic of the Real World comes dancing into the surface world. The right words open pathways between the worlds. The poetry of consciousness delights the spirits. It draws the gods and goddesses who wish to live through us closer.

Shamans use poetry, sung or spoken, to achieve ends that go deeper than our consensual world. They create poetic songs of power to invoke spiritual help; to journey into nonordinary reality; to open and maintain a space between the worlds where interaction between humans and multidimensional beings can take place and to bring energy and healing through to the body and the physical world….’

As a side and personal note, regarding the title of the art, I don’t see the same thing the artist does when he created his art…as a master of beasts, I instead see the spirit and energy of one who walks with them, side by side and connected…

The 12 Moons of the year:

10156123_721555041199890_7127678737402135207_n

 

 

The 12 Moons of the year: (some vague Native American names and associations are also listed here, but not all. There are indeed more. )

January: The Wolf Moon, also known as the Cold, Snow, Old or Winter Moon:

The Wolf Moon can be seen as a time of both beginnings and endings. This full Moon appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. To some Native American tribes, this was the Snow Moon, but most applied that name to the next full Moon, in February.

February: The Storm Moon, also known as the Snow, Death, Hunger or Quickening Moon:

…is a time to do magick for fertility and strength. In the olden days, it was a time of true hardship. Usually the heaviest snows fall in February. Hunting becomes very difficult, and hence to some Native American tribes this was the Hunger Moon.

March: The Chaste Moon, also known as the Seed, Sap, Worm Moon, the Chaste Moon:

…is a time to plant mental seeds- thoughts of success and hope. This is also a time of purity and newness. It is a time to mentally prepare yourself for new experiences. At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.

April: The Seed Moon, also known as the Egg, Sprouting Grass, Fish, Grass, Pink or Wind Moon:

This is the time to sow the seeds of Magic. If your planting a magical garden, you want to get out there and put things into the earth. This is a time to move your planning phase into action. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon. Flowers spring forth in abundance this month.

May: The Hare Moon, also known as the Flower, Pink, Corn Planting, Milk or Planting Moon:

…is a time of health, love, romance, and wisdom. It is also a great time to rekindle the romantic spark and passion in a relationship. This full Moon heralded the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers.

June: The Lovers Moon, also known as the Strawberry, Hot or Rose Moon:

The Lovers Moon brings with it energy for love, marriage, and success. The Algonquin tribes knew this Moon as a time to gather ripening strawberries. It is also known as the Rose Moon and the Hot Moon.

July: The Mead Moon, also known as the Blessing, Lightning, Buck or Thunder Moon:

…is a time of enchantment, health, rebirth, success and strength. It is also a time of celebration and magic. Remember that mead is the nectar of the Gods. Now is a good time for prosperity magic. Bucks begin to grow new antlers at this time. This full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.

August: The Wyrt Moon, also known as the Wort, Barley, Corn, Sturgeon, Green Corn or Red Moon:

…is a time of abundance, agriculture and marriage. At this time you might want to do magic to help someone else reap the benefits of the Earths abundance. (With their permission of course!) Some Native American tribes knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. Others called it the Green Corn Moon.

September: The Harvest Moon, also known as the Barley, Full Corn or Hunters Moon:

The harvest Moon is a time of protection, prosperity, and abundance. The energy of the Harvest Moon will help along any magick that is geared to bring you or someone else abundance. This full Moon corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, because it is the time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley. The Harvest Moon is the full Moon nearest the autumnal equinox, which can occur in September or October and is bright enough to allow finishing all the harvest chores.

October: The Blood Moon is sometimes called the Falling Leaf, Travel, Dying or Hunters Moon:

It is a Moon of new goals, protection, resolution, and spirituality. The night of the Blood Moon is a great time for divination of any kind. At this time of year all of nature is making ready for winter. This is a time to reflect on what you did during the year and to evaluate you accomplishments. This is the month when the leaves are falling and the game is fattened. Now is the time for hunting and laying in a store of provisions for the long winter ahead.

November: The Snow Moon, is also known as the Beaver, Mourning, Frost or Tree Moon:

This is a good time to work with abundance, prosperity, and the bonds of family and friendship. This is also an excellent time to use divination to get an idea of whats up ahead. Remind yourself that although winter is coming, it will not last forever. For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.

December: The Oak Moon, also known as the Cold or Long Night Moon:

The oak Moon is a time for hope and healing. This time of the year the Moon has reign over the earth, because there are more hours of night than day. Our thoughts turn to rebirth of the light and the longer days that are promised after winter solstice. Thai is a great time to let go of old patterns or problems and start anew. If something has been eating at you for a long time, work to give it up at this time. Let go of the negative and let the light of longer days shine inside you. This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark.

‘Consciousness & Dimensions: Science Begins it’s Dance with Spirituality’

This has been a rather strong preoccupation of mine for years. Though there is no real “scientific basis” for it, I like the possibilities and suggestions from this article. What do you think about it?
‘Consciousness & Dimensions: Science Begins it’s Dance with Spirituality’“Consciousness & Dimensions:Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Vernon Neppe and physicist Dr. Edward Close discussed their work integrating science and consciousness studies, and their most recent breakthrough, positing that we live in a 9-dimensional spinning reality. While human experience is restricted to the first four dimensions, the additional hidden dimensions could provide keys to life as we know it, and explain some of the mysteries of science, they contended.

There has been a standstill in finding the link between science and consciousness, and their new theory connects them, said Close. Among the nine finite dimensions, there are three that encompass consciousness, Neppe stated, adding that their theory was mathematically sound, and helped solve certain physics conundrums like the Cabibbo angle. Each dimension is embedded within the next higher dimension, “and everything begins to have meaning when you have a science that can explain things like UFOs, time travel, out-of-body experiences, and psychic phenomena,” said Close. Another component of these higher dimensions is the transcendence of self, Neppe commented.

The two also spoke about their research into the phenomenon of deja vu, and how in certain incidents, one knows what a person is going to say before they say it. Deja vu could be a kind of time distortion or a type of psychic awareness, Neppe offered, while Close noted that time isn’t something that always flows in one direction at the same rate.”

“Elves Nighttime Welcome”

1185857_714447281910666_1948148676_n
“Elves Nighttime Welcome” 
“In the dark
Search the stars
On this moonless cloudy night
For the magic
Of the elves
As they play the glimmering light
Like a top
Like a song
Those who can see all delight
In the whispered lighting fancies they behold.
It’s the elves
Who control
The light that’s in the dark
And their magic
That we see
With each beating of our heart
So look up
In the night
Leave the city find a park
And loose your conscience in the magic of the elves”
Moro
