Ancient Wisdom of Faeries~2013

Ancient Wisdom of Faeries~
Faeries are very old beings. Many of their cultures range from Celtic to the Sidhe, people of the mounds.
To their realm called, 'Pathworking of Astral Travel in other Traditions, it is a oneself, one's environment one's spiritual beliefs. Some see this world of faeries as projection. Still other see it as a journey through space /time /Sidhe/Elven Realm/ parallel worlds or even worm holes thought something as simple as a enormous tree as an enchanted forest. The Questions is...You must decide for yourself what your believe. 

Faeries are great spiritual creatures of the natural world. They have been known to the Nordic, they were the alfar or elves. A vision quest is a great journey into a quest to the unknown reaching to the other worlds in order to learn about merely the Subconscious Realm of their World.

The faerie folk have inhabited the hills, valleys, and deep forests of the earth since the very beginning of time - Shamanism is an old and as Vast as the night sky - The buildings of the fist village. To even some paganism religion that belief in the faerie folk of the ancient, they to belief that these small beings have a respect for the earth, water, air and fire. All environment consciousness which runs so deep in the faerie connections with knowledge and wisdom which are gained from the tees, lakes, rivers, & streams. Protection comes from the rocks and the fire worlds which is important for they to believe in mother nature, who nurtures the planet. From all this they get their magick from the earth. 

Mystical realm which mirrors the astral planes and other portal holes in which they are able to come through both worlds is a way of protecting their children whether they are faerie, in the form of an animal (shape shifting), or anything that is one with this planet, that they have come to love.

The Faeries are acknowledged  in every aspect of life. Along with this comes a respect for all any shape - size of life ... from a tiny lady bug, to the rare spirit bear, to a giant redwood tree or a spring mist.
 Science is causing change in ones environment in conformity with ones will, is only possible to what you believe, in knowledge of human body soul and mind are able to see the most beautiful and powerful divine things in life. Its with the gift of choice that human beings do not answer the laws of the ancient world. The Gods and Goddesses, heroes, heroines of the Earth from the stars were known to the Celts as the Tuadha De Dannan that in habit the Earth, The Tuadha Da Dannan moved into the Realm of the faie or when they cross over into reality of another realm. 

It is wondrous beauty, enchantment and magic of the Earth, the Sea, the Sky and the Faerie Realm is Real...

'Faeries, Elves, Pixie's & Tree Spirits' 2013

'Faeries, Elves, Pixie's & Tree Spirits'
Contacting fairies~
Fairies are little beings that live on an astral plane. They came over between planes but it is much easier to contact them though the astral plane. 
Meditation is one way to contact fairies, to do this you should go to a place where  your can relax without any disturbance. Take the phone off the hook and if necessary lock the door. Another place would be is a special place in your garden or the forest if you have one near by. I find that my garden is a great place for this. Yet when my son gets home from school, then its not so good. I do love the forest but like everyone else it is not close by for me to get too. Once you do find that special place, get into a comfortable position, preferably sitting because when you lay down you might fall asleep(usually on those warm sunny days you just might fall asleep) 
Anyway so close your eyes and start breathing in and out very slowly. Imagine your body relaxing - starting with your toes and going through your entire body until your reach your head. spend extra time on your back, arms and neck as they have the most built up tension in you're body. Now picture yourself  walking down the stairs, but these stairs could be white fluffy soft clouds for your stairs. This would make each step that much more relaxing. At least it works for me.
Once you're relaxed & your body feels like its either light as a feather or heavy as if you were under the tall trees in your favorite forest. You can decided where you want to be -Meadow, Garden,Redwoods,or  a riverbank anything that would relax your.

At this point when you are completely relaxed, ask for the fairies to show themselves and ask them that you mean them no harm. You only want to learn from them & talk to them. This may take some time, so be patient. Fairies are very cautious creatures by nature and very guarded when it comes to the humans & their world. 

Once an fairy does trust you, they'll come out - But always be careful & cautious yourself too when you are around them too. Faeries can be wary at first. Be careful when you have your first contact & carry a charm of protection with you always! You don't want to bump into a violet fairy when you have nothing to protect yourself. Not all fairies are nice little pixies that we would think or would hope they are all are; Just like humans we too are all not the best kinda of people, too. 


What kind of fairy and tell them that you mean them no harm, you are only there to meet in peace - note there are many different kinds of fairies ~
Once you fine a place which you think is fine, sit down on a rock or stump and talk to the fairies. Show them that you have only good intentions. They should come,if they believe you . They also will only really come if you truly believe in faeries too. 

The fairy Call
A Spell for Summoning the Fairies
Sit where the cat sits. Cross your toes,
Close your eyes and smell a rose
Then say under your breathe; 
"I believe in fairies, sure as death"
Gadflykins! Gadflykins! Gadflykins!
Gutterpuss an Cass!
Come to me Fairily
Each lad and lass!
Fairy Offering in your home:
If you want to attract fairies to your home 

If you want to attract fairies to your home you should leave food offering. This will give the fairies something they want and it will lead them to trust you. Try leaving small cakes, candies, ginger,barley, icing like for a birthday cake~ 


They also love gardens, so leave some of these offering there in a bowl of basket. Planting rose bluebells, thyme, will also help attract fairies too~
Don't look for the offering to disappear, because the fairies don't  physically eat them. Fairies are capable of taking the energy from the offering's; rather than taking the offering-the food itself. In a few days, the cake may still be there but it may look a bit plastic or unreal looking! Of course if an animal comes along and eats the offering- this is a good sign too. Don't sent it away - it may be the fairy in a animal form coming for a present. 
So the one thing that I could tell you that would help you come one with the faeries is ~ TO BELIEVE!

Rosy

'Rosy'


I will never forget the first time I saw a hummingbird in my Garden almost 10-years ago. It was a amazing tiny bird to watch. Little did I know that I would be a hummingbird lover and have a Garden just for Hummingbirds ten years later, with a little wild humming bird that I call Rosy that is either an Male Ruby - throat or an Anna's Humming bird.. Since I have had a hard time getting so close its hard to tell. but it really doesn't matter because the tiny little hummer has stayed with me over the last 5 winters. And is very vocal too. He has a favorite tree that he sets up high in to protect my garden, which he now feels is his garden. I have over the years been able to communicate with the tiny & quite beautiful hummer. He is also quite a proud bird too. Being that he is a male he loves to show off  his beautiful.

Selkie's-2013

Selkie's
The Selkie are descends from the seals, that live a good percentage of their lives on and below the polar ice caps of the Arctic. There was an intense competition of these species & development to adapting to the cold and elaborate politeness rituals to keep from attacking each other.
Most people assume the Selkie's were the most polite race & they would never encounter any problems with the humans, back in the day.
But the selkies being descends from the seal had the carnivores side that resided in them, it was very close to them all the time, just under the surface.

So they had to use great elaborate rituals to keep them form reverting to their descends style of carnivores and attacking each other.
The Selkies move with great restrained and practiced this both on land and sea. They are a very graceful race both on land and sea. For one, they will bow and seem polite if nosy strangers  come by.
Looking like they are sliding over the ground rather than floppy. But they can take offense very easily and have long memories. In fact the Selkie's can live, as long to 400 to 500 years. And are repositories of great wisdom. 


In the water they move with ballet type of grace and incredible speed and stamina. When fighting they have distinct martial arts and fight with blinding speed.

This takes consuming something that had the races genetic structure - even hair or poop will work for this - and then, over the course of the month, gradually shedding their outer form in favor of the new race form. 


Likewise it takes a full month to change back, to their original race form. In the different race form the selkie loses its resistance to it long range swimming skills & deep depths ocean skills as well. 
But the selkie will look enough like the new species to be able to pass undetected. During the 'Great War' the selkie used this ability to great effect and incidentally caused the internment of a great many selkies that were  completely loyal to our Hero's Cause.


While in the form of a new species - human - they are fully carpel of interbreeding. Often a child of such a union has the abilities of a selkie as well.

'HummingBird's Haven'-2013

'HummingBird's Haven'
In this blog I will be giving you many different hints that I've come across in my readings over the years in hummingbird magazines & books~

Attracting hummingbirds with Fruit~
well by setting out pieces of cantaloupe & other types of melons, not only will the hummingbirds
like your tasty treat of juicy treat. But other insects that are attracted to the fruit will be and this
will be more food for your hummers.

Hang feeders in a shady spot~
I always hang my feeders either from a shady branch from a nearby tree or a decorative hook that is 
placed hanging from my porch. Another hint is to plant lots of nectar full flowers near your flowers.
Some of these are the Pink chenille,Amaryllis & the Red, Pink, Purple ,white Bee Balms are full of tasty nectar for your hummers. Also the thing about these flowers, they grow up to 6 to 8 feet tall. And the hummingbirds go crazy for them. Mostly the RED ONES.

Small ponds & waterfalls~
Another way to create a small haven for your hummingbirds is to create a small pond, that will produce a light mist, Your humming birds will go crazy - they love to whiz through the mist & get a drink of water too!

Problems with Ants~
If you hang your hummingbird feeders from a plant hook then you wont have any problems with ants finding their way up to your sweet nectar. Also if you smear some oil at the base of the hook the ants will leave your feeders alone. 

Taller flowers for your hummers~
Another trick to attracting hummingbirds -
1)Carnal lilies
2) Bee Balms - Are my favorite- Reds are the Best; although the Pinks are good too.
3) Red Carnations in pots or hanging baskets /are also good to attract your hummingbirds too.

Hummers-The Joy of Morning Glories~
I have found that my hummer and his group of Ladies come around alot during the morning hours
& the afternoon~ So I've discovered that Morning Glories & Four-o'clock Gladiola's and the sweet scent of the sweet pea's are great for attracting your hummingbirds- My other favorite hummingbird plant is the fuchsia~ The reason why is they look like tiny ballerina's dressed in lavender, pink, red saliva, white/pink too. And they provided lots of nectar for your tiny jewels too.

Sunflowers~
The Mexican Sunflower will attract your tiny jewels too-
Note-Hummingbirds use dandelions seeds to line their nest. So let these weeds grow in your yard. Also they love the nectar from marigolds, periwinkles, lantern's, cosmos, and  impatiens too-

Trumpet Vines
The Hyacinth Bean Vine - This vine is an perfect combination for the Mexican Sunflower and the Hyacinth Bean vine. Since the sunflower has a strong stalks to support the vines it in turn will provide a great meal of  you and your tiny jewels.  

Problems with dominant male hummingbirds in your Garden~
More often then not when you have discovered an dominant male hummingbird in your garden, 
you will find that they will chase other hummingbirds off your garden that might want to visit, either your feeders or flowers you have grown for them. What I've discovered that helps with this problem is; by moving one of your feeders out of the males line of sight, this should help the problem~
The male dominant hummingbird is usually the vocal one.

Ant Barriers~
One-way of doing this is by putting small receptacles filled will just water that are placed on the hanging portion of the feeder, The ants who always like a good sugar fix, cannot proceed beyond the water reservoir and thus cannot reach your hummingbirds food~

Never use honey as a sugar substitute!
Why! Because your tiny friends may develop a fungus that will affect their tongues. Some of the prepackaged hummingbird food that you find in your local stores that have a section for hummingbirds feeders and food may have this too. Its called sodium Benoite a preservative. This is a foreign substances to your tiny jewels that does not come from the normal nature of flower nectar, and is probably not healthy for your wild feather friends. 

Cleaning your Bird Feeders~
When cleaning your feeders I've found that having cotton swabs - Q -tips, baby bottle brushes are also a wonderful great cleaning source for your feeders too. You really don't have to spend a lot of money on the heavily priced cleaning brushes and sponges at the local stores. Also the best solution to clean your bird feeders is warm water and very diluted solution of one part vinegar to five parts water. I wouldn't use bleach unless you have a really dirty feeder/ with black mold.

You Might not know this~
Hummingbirds are great Pollinators - Just like the Bees, They play an important role in nature because they are too responsible for pollinating certain kinds of flowers. Flowering plants rely on insects, birds and other animals to pick up pollen from the anther of one flower an deliver it to the stigma of another. 
Hummingbirds are particularly well suited for this role . As  they too fit among many of the flowers, as they feed on the nectar. They pick up grains of pollen on their tiny foreheads,bills, and chins. The pollen is then carried to the next flower that they go to for food, they they pollinate the next group of flowers without even knowing it. 


Red & Orange, & Yellow flowers often contain the most nectar~
I have found that the vine red and orange tubular shape flowers are the best
when it comes to nectar for tiny jewels~

Understanding your Garden~
Once you understand that hummingbirds are attracted to the slender tubular shaped flowers - in the red/pink/orange/and yellow range. And you choose shrubs that are perennials & Annal's that you like with these flowers characteristics you are on your way.

If possible plant either in pots or in the ground, of the same flowers so they will be more visible to the passing hummingbirds and provide larger quantities of food, in your garden for your hummers. Including some plants like the thistle that will provided fuzzy material for their nest lining;
Planting trees can also provide jumping off points for courtship displaying their aerobatics flying displays that hummingbirds are known to do. And I've been so lucky to seen. Although if your hummer feel safe in your garden they will do the same with the trees that surround your garden, like my do. Another great way to provide areas for courtship or places to perch to survey their territories is dead limbs from a tree or sticks from the store.
Keep your garden natural looking- Hummingbirds are more likely to visit your garden if you have plenty of vegetation which they can feel save. Too much pruning and tidiness can actually discourage them to visit your yard.  
Here are a few images I have found that are of beautiful flowers that hummingbirds love & some rare humming birds that I thought you all might find fun to see too..

Good lucky and happy Gardening
