Past lives ..Earl Beardie ?

Posted in ancestors, heritage, past lives on July 9, 2017 by Psychic eevee

This is strange ,it may be nothing but coincidence but it struck me as odd, I was reading a true ghost story book and came across this story from Glamis castle in Scotland, I know a bit about Glamis and some of it’s ghosts including a supposed hideously deformed child who had been kept locked away in a hidden room but did not know this story…

Well Ive been calling my hubby “beardie” for 20 years without knowing about this ,I wonder if this is yet another of his past lives ? It is very common to be the complete opposite now to how you were in a past life…he is anti drinking and gambling and he really despises the elite and the monarchy .

As you already know,I have Scottish ancestry, he doesn’t but he can do a spot on Scottish accent, whereas I struggle !

In the version in my book it states that the stranger who played cards with Earl Beardie wore a black cloak and hat, hubby saw an apparition like that on numerous occasions in our old house, I did comment at the time that as he was the only person to see it maybe it was linked to a past life.

You can be drawn to meet someone in this life because you are part of their “soul group” and had links in the past,maybe we knew each other in Scotland way back then ?

I did shudder at the “devil” thing though,because my poltergeist flat had started out with an apparition of a “devil” (not that I believe in that now) which was witnessed by many other people, I met hubby not long after I moved from there and he too witnessed the “devil” in the TV screen that was off at the time,it was never to be seen again…!maybe it was Earl Beardies “devil” saying its final goodbyes ? Who knows

If this is one of his past lives his list is catching up with mine ! I have discovered about six of mine and now possibly about four of his.

Psychic find : another Callanish book

Posted in ancestors, heritage, psychic finds on July 5, 2017 by Psychic eevee

As usual I was drawn to a charity shop,in actual fact it wasn’t even my pay day,hubby lent me some money so I could go shopping a few days early ,I wasn’t going to but something “made” me.

Found this in the oxfam bookshop (I am very anti corporate power by the way !)

Also I found this, its so cute

It is really Romany gypsy style

It has teeny tiny tarot cards with it,I collect unusual tarot and oracle sets and have never seen any like this before !

I also found this antique style fairy,I have been wanting one in autumn colours for my altar for years, isn’t she beautiful 🙂

My sacred place and the swan coincidence

Posted in ancestors, birds, bolan, callanish, coincidences, druids, heritage, standing stones on July 3, 2017 by Psychic eevee

I just did a quiz in one of my spiritual magazines.

“Find your sacred place”

And my result was Callanish !! The standing stones in the outer Hebrides, spooky..that is where my ancestors are from.

It States that Callanish is the place of the Sidhe (fairies) I am fascinated in fairies ! Shown by all the fairy lanterns I make.

I know abit about Callanish but did not know that and I did not know this either….

Every 8.16 years  the constellation Cygnus the swan aligns over it.

I love swans 

And my second favourite musical hero Marc Bolan did too ,my favourite Marc Bolan song is “ride a white swan” and he sings about Druids in it,Druids used standing stones.

What i left at the site where Marc died

Modern Burial barrow: Pagan point of view & psychic reading

Posted in ancestors, animals, burial Barrow, butterflies, heritage, leylines, location readings, my articles, pagan and wiccan, Pareidolia, witches butterfly on May 7, 2017 by Psychic eevee

The other weekend we went to visit a modern burial barrow,one of the first to be built in the UK,the owner kindly let me hang around to take photos for my graves and monument website (I have not edited my proper photography yet)

What is unusual about this is that it is not actually for burials like the barrows in Neolithic times were, this is for cremation ashes, personally I have a huge aversion towards cremation 😦 so cannot see myself wanting to end up here but it is a truly beautiful place and you can be any religion ,the man who owns it is Christian but he said any religion can use it and any ceremonies can be carried out there as long as they are respectful, so I approve of that.

He was interested to see what I made of it as a wiccan and psychic

This location is amazing ,it took only six stone masons five months ,BY HAND ,to make and only the six monoliths at the front are fixed in place, the rest of the stones are just stacked !

With the sentinel monolith stone guarding it,anyway let’s start at the beginning….

First we stopped in the car to have a cup a soup lunch,I was hoping the rosemary cracker’s would make me more psychic

It is tucked away in a lovely peaceful countryside location where you hear only birdsong,its a short walk from the carpark,we found an old barn with old farm equipment

Would love this old wagon for my garden

People out hiking in the flat “fens”

A lovely wooded area

Complete with fairy bridge

I couldn’t believe it…a witches butterfly followed me all the way there ! (See other witches butterflies blogs)

Then another wiccan sign…a moon gazey hare came running directly at us !! Have never seen one that close before

Due to my beliefs in the Goddess /mother earth,I saw the shape of this as a pregnant woman,and that the passed on people would go in here to be reincarnated …”from womb to tomb to womb” the inside is circular,like infinity, the circle of life,the circle of reincarnation. The shape was motherly and welcoming, not gloomy and morbid,I preferred its shape to the more common long barrow

Trust me ,these photos do not do it justice !! These are just camfone snaps, when I have edited my proper photography I will add a link

The square niches are for the urns,they are finished with stone covers that can be personalised,I didn’t take photos of the finished ones out of respect to the families.

I did not get a snap of the ceiling but it is round,giving it even more of an appearance of a pregnant woman in my opinion.

I should imagine this will attract bats and all sorts of animals but that will just add to the atmosphere 🙂

Some beautiful hand felted urns.

Hubby with the man who owns it -he was fascinating to talk to,very friendly and educational.

Blowing out the candles

I helped to blow the candles out which was quite an honour.

In darkness …from glorious and atmospheric to silent and somber.

When it is all lit up ,it is the most peaceful place, not at all depressing or sad,you feel only happiness at the lives remembered here.

Although you can see your breath, it is not cold !!

It is not at all “spooky” you could spend hours in here lost in thought meditating and I imagine the acoustics would be awesome for singing or playing musical instruments.

Wherever you walk you find light,because it comprises two circular areas ,kind of a metaphor to me for spirits finding their way to the next life.

The contrast of blue and yellow stone really is spectacular in the candle light,the owner let me keep some for my rock collection 🙂 although the barrow is modern,the stones are not.

My psychic feeling here was of being transported rapidly back in time to my ancestors in the Hebrides and my Celtic ancestors in Ireland,I saw also my Norse heritage,I didn’t pick up on any spirits of anyone who had been interred in the barrow,I am kind of glad about that,I think it shows they are truly at peace.

I did see two cloaked guardians standing on top of the barrow ,they were holding “stangs” (two pronged wooden staffs) and got the word “Iceni” they were a tribe in these parts

I got the names “Oleb ” and “Cajeb”

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iceni

I saw also a woman in tattered clothes gathering lavender (of which there actually wasn’t any at the site ) she was in the small wooded area to the left and kept looking furtively around,she had a withered arm and I was given the name Molly Passill,I don’t know if she was stealing the lavender or one of those sad unfortunates accused of witchcraft,she didnt mind me looking but when she saw my husband glance in her direction she vanished,she was followed by a big Irish wolfhound type dog and a boy aged about 7 who wore nothing more than a dirty shawl round him,the name given for him was Edwin…no surname,do not know if they were related.but I feel they were true “heathens” =heath dwellers.

I smelt bonfire smoke ,there were no fires that I could see.

I was more fascinated in the sentinel stone,

I felt very drawn to this and although it could probably be put down to pareidolia I saw things in it ,looking like a cave painting I saw an upside down sort of half cat/half dog animal :front half cat,back half dog,which I believe is the sites power animal.

I also saw a side profile of a bearded Druid like man,he was wearing some sort of band across his forehead and the words “Hawthorne harvest” jumped out.! Hawthorne is a protective plant to Pagans and I feel that if some isn’t planted around the site then it will appear naturally and MUST NOT be cut down !

On pointing out the animal figure to everyone they also saw it but that of course can be down to the power of suggestion !

However, I was very fascinated that a Christian lady said she could see something with antlers in the sentinel stone ,and I said that with our beliefs that would be seen as Cernunnos,the nature God ! And seeing him must mean he approved and is protecting the site.

I had asked previously by email if this barrow had been specifically built on a ley line as it would have been originally ,I was told no,but I bet that without knowing it ,it actually is on one and a very strong one too (I shall look into that)

Despite this being a modern barrow and for people of all religions there is no getting away from the fact that Pagans still watch over these important sacred stones and monuments,it doesn’t matter if they are Neolithic or made last year !

More witches butterflies and more psychic finds

Posted in ancestors, animals, butterflies, coincidences, crystals, heritage, power animals /totem animals, psychic finds, witches butterfly on May 6, 2017 by Psychic eevee

These have been coming into my life a lot lately (if you go to the index on the right hand side of the main page and look under “witches butterflies” you will find more blogs)

I havent written the blog yet but just recently we went somewhere for me to do a photo project and a witches butterfly followed me on quite a long walk down a country path,stopping in front of me a few times as if it was checking on me,when we got to the location it vanished

I had a week of depression last week,hubby offered to take me out to do my favourite thing,charity shop hunting,I was in bed and said no,but half an hour later I got a sudden urge to go to a particular town and lo and behold I got lots of things I wanted (remember, you never know what charity shops will have!)

One thing I came across was this

Not only does it have a witches butterfly on it (as mentioned on previous blogs; my ancestors in the Scottish highlands saw red admiral or any red butterflies as witches) but it also has Lillie’s on it which are my favourite flower,my downstairs bathroom has a lily theme

These are the other psychic finds :

You will see from the blog when I have written it that my photo project was to do with sacred stones

We live in East Anglia ,and the sacred stones we went to are local

These lovely hard back books were only £1 each

We wanted a tool kit for our grandson and found this HUGE one

I was overjoyed to find this set of crystal pyramids because I have one and it is chipped, these cost only 99p for the set of three !!
