Present from Munnin the jackdaw

Posted in birds, feathers, power animals /totem animals, ravens crows jackdaws on October 15, 2017 by Psychic eevee

Munnin has been getting very close 🙂

Now he is literally waiting on the doorstep every morning to see if we have food !

We spent a while watching him yesterday after we treated him to some prawns ,he was not sure about them at first, probably because they were cold from the fridge.

Jackdaws recognise faces and he knows his name,they will leave presents for people they trust,I think he must know that I collect feathers because he dropped this right in front of my garden chair !

I wish I had filmed him doing that .

My husband is convinced that Munnin is the spirit of our old neighbour Fred who died three years ago, he loved birds and used to feed them every day,he also used to chat to us over the fence every morning,Munnin always comes from the direction of Fred’s old garden.

I may have mentioned our jackdaw visitor before, he visits every day,he is very old ,you can tell by his arthritic legs, the colour of his head and his unusual white feathers, I finally managed to get some proper photos of him

I did laugh though …..

Lights in the fairy forest

Posted in animals, birds, fairies and fairy garden, fairy forest we made, power animals /totem animals on September 8, 2017 by Psychic eevee

The fairy forest we made is so magical now,

I bought some solar fairy lights and weaved them through the trees, I wish these photos were better ,I will do some more with my proper camera soon.

I chose bright white to make it look like “will o the wisps” and also I thought coloured lights would be a bit too much as we have those elsewhere in the rest of the garden.

You can just see a neighbours house at the back of the fairy forest,I trailed the lights through the entrance

Along the pathway inside

This is right inside the middle where the seating is

Lights in the trees

Weaved through branches you have to walk under

We rescued a young hedgehog that was being terrified by a cat and was caught up in some brambles

We checked it over ,let it calm down and when the cat was gone we put it back,the fairy forest is attracting lots of wildlife,our grand daughter saw a frog in there the other day

And look at this lovely old guy

You can see daytime photos of the fairy forest here :

UPDATE..got some slightly better photos at dusk

The lights at the entrance

Leading inside

In the branches

In the centre

Right in the middle

It is all hidden apart from a few lights at the entrance, you have to go right inside to see the rest

Tarot beginner

Posted in animals, birds, familiars, oracles, owls, owls my spirit animal, pagan and wiccan, phases and development, power animals /totem animals, tarot, tarot and oracles on September 4, 2017 by Psychic eevee

Believe it or not I have never learnt the Tarot,I have never had the patience and have been too busy with the numerous oracle card sets I have,runes,pendulums, dice and other methods.

I have never found a set of Tarot cards that I have REALLY liked either ….

Until now : these are just perfect ,they have both mine (barn owl) and hubbies (crow) power animals on a lot of the cards and these are very very Pagan /Celtic style 🙂

They are called TAROT FAMILIARS BY LISA PARKER …I have always loved her art and have two of her pictures (not originals of course !) Maybe the fact I have these pictures is a good sign that these are in fact the right tarot cards for me ?

I shall dust off my “tarot cards for idiots” book and give it a whirl,it may take some time before I know what I am doing ,I might be too set in my ways with my other methods.

As and when I start getting the hang of it I will add sample readings.
UPDATE I have now ordered this Lisa Parker canvas for hubby for Xmas

Grand daughter and the feathers !!

Posted in birds, feathers, indigo kids, owls, owls my spirit animal on September 2, 2017 by Psychic eevee

It was one of those moments when you do not know if you should be cross or not !!! 😉

I came downstairs from having my medication to be greeted by this sight ….

Grand daughter had decided to empty my feather collection all over the living room floor !! Rather than get cross I thought I would pay her back by boring her silly and telling her about every single feather haha

….it backfired on me,she was fascinated

All my feathers are ethically collected, I have tons from my pet duck,I pick up ones from the garden that visiting birds leave and all the owl and eagle ones are from the birds of prey rescue that hubby volunteers at.

Grand daughter has seen these big feathers before when she was smaller, she just couldn’t remember, she loves birds just like we do (we all have bird power animals),also she may be drawn to feathers because of her mummys link to Pocahontas !! (I have blogged about that in the past)
