Today’s cards from the Shamans Oracles cards -The Shaman of courage - gives us strength to face our fears and to continue our path when obstacles seem to overwhelm us - The Hunter of Honour reminds us to honour ourselves, our relationships and our connections, to acknowledge the reciprocal nature of life between all things - The Spirit of wisdom asks us to use our understanding gained from experience and apply this wisdom in our daily lives - together the cards simply ask that we have the courage to honour our own innate wisdom and have the courage to honour others with humility and understanding regardless of our differences.

Today I asked for a card that has the guidance for those here who seek it - two cards fell out of the deck - The Hunter of Mysteries and The Dancer of Lies - the message here is- whilst following your path beware of illusions, of falsehoods masquerading as truth - discern your judgements carefully and be open to recognising the shadows in your own being that seek to blind you and turn you away from the truth you are seeking . The truth will out . Do not be afraid of the darkness for within it you will come to the light of awareness and your healing .

Today , I honour my Ancestors , I honour all those whose striving and struggling ensured my existence. All those who lay down their lives to fight for justice , peace and a fair standard of living for ordinary people . Those who tended children , nursed the sick and stood up for the vulnerable. Those who offered kindness to strangers and welcomed in the Lonely . I honour the  The Ancient ,  The Powerful ,  The Wise - the ones who knew the earths ways , the cycles of life and death and the seasons of the year . Those who tended their hearts and their souls with loving grace and compassion. 
Today I honour every living being on this Earth and pray we have a future generation to be Ancestors to.

Every time I go out walking in the woods , or up on the hills , or down by the river I always see a heart shaped thing - a stone , a leaf , a puddle , something in the environment is always reminding me of the ever present energy of the heart and love ... on a recent walk I caught this from the corner of my eye - I thought it was one of those sweets but it’s not - someone had made a tiny Clay heart and left it hidden in a dry stone wall ... love really is in everything ❤️💕❤️

Are you struggling at the moment ? Are black clouds smothering you in their dark embrace ? Has the light gone out at the end of your tunnel ? Is despair your only ally as  you fall beneath the waves of overwhelm ? Do you need a guiding hand to reach in and gently pull you out ? 
These 4 Bach Remedies which can be combined together, can support us when we are experiencing any or all of the situations described above. 
Mustard shifts the heavy feeling of impending doom that appears to have no cause. It arrives and just as suddenly disappears. Mustard brings the sun out to disperse the dark clouds, helping us to gather strength and continue on our way.
Gorse allows us to rekindle our hope. When we feel that all is lost Gorse reminds us we have not reached the end , but are at a new beginning. Sweet chestnut re-ignites the light at the end of the tunnel . In the dark night of the soul it reconnects us to our own inner light and the loving support of the universe. Elm supports us to navigate the waves of overwhelm from a sturdy ship , with strong sails and a capable crew. Supporting us until we can anchor ourselves in calmer waters on safer shores.

Water webs - I love spying tiny things underfoot that may otherwise be missed - catching glimpses of light from the corner of my eye and following where they lead - all kinds of small worlds surround us if we take the time to notice 😊#naturephotography #spiderwebs #naturalmagic #smallworlds #tinythings #photography #wildlife #intothespiderverse #grasslands #naturelovers #nature #secretplaces #thewellofbelonging
Faery grotto - I love to follow my feet and find the secret places in the woods where two worlds meet .

Girl in the picture (poem and image The Well of Belonging ) 
Look at the girl, the face in the picture....
Strangely familiar, wouldn’t you say ? 
She’s fading away... Look at those eyes that seem to see through you.
The face doesn’t smile but she’s laughing at you ... And the colours are fading.

Look at the words written under the picture.
Forgotten 
By someone remembered by you , 
Just a girl you once knew.

And the colours are changing.
The colours are fading.

Strangely familiar wouldn’t you say ? 
She’s fading away.

Wild rose - one of my favourite flowers and the Bach essence I’ve turned to again and again when I find myself thinking ‘I can’t be bothered’ or “ I’m bored” . For people who have lost their mojo and just don’t seem able to muster any enthusiasm for the projects and hobbies they once loved . For when we find ourselves in a rut of apathy and can’t seem to motivate ourselves - after long  a period of illness or a life event that may have left us wondering ‘what’s the point? ‘ ‘why bother ?’. This flower  offers us an infusion of its wildish passion and zest for life in a gentle and grounded way - reconnecting us to our creative energy and sparking our interest with enthusiasm and joy . #floweressences #bachremedies #essences #selfcare #naturalmedicine #plantallies #naturalhealing #wildrose #essencetherapy #thewellofbelonging

The Ancestors - another of my Otherworldly offerings with a link to the original blog post that accompanied the image. That might not actually work .... but it’s in the Blog section of the website 😊

Spirit of the woods : Following on from my recent posts , this offering from my Otherworldly Art Collection , brings through the energies found when we connect to the woodlands and the forests . I took the original photo in Roeburndale during my 3 year Shamanic Training at Middlewood facilitated by Jayne of @jaynejohnsonphotography .
All the elements present in the digital art I create are already there , I just find a way to tweak things so they can be seen. I often find those who spend time with the images feel drawn into a journey like experience, encountering different beings and images within the picture - some alike , and some different. I love that these creations are open to be viewed in ways that are personal to the one looking in.

I have an article coming out in the next issue of Sentire out on Oct 23rd on the theme of Resistance- how it can present itself and possible ways in which we  can work with it through using Essences and embodied wisdom.

There is a place , upon the hill , where sound is hushed and time stands still. Where secrets of the ancient past are etched upon the stony path . Where whispers echo in the air , and speak of wisdom , no one hears.

The Queen of the Water Fae - Another of my Otherworldly Art images created from a photo taken in nature- her appearance was a pleasantly magical surprise! #visionaryartist #visionaryart #sacredart #wildness #otherworld #otherwordly #art #faery #faerymagic #faeryrealm #thewellofbelonging #water #nature
In the second of my Otherworldly Art creations Crow holds the wisdom of love at the centre of The Well of Belonging-  like the previous image this was a photograph taken of a place in nature . I kept revisiting the original image knowing it had something to reveal , but it was a few years before I was able to make the proper connection. It’s one of my favourite pieces of visionary art work that I’ve done. I love how working with spirit doesn’t happen in a linear fashion. Things come when they are ready too. Sometimes you need patience and to be content with waiting not trying to push forward . It was worth waiting for this in my opinion 😊. #otherworldly #art #soul #naturephotography #wisdom #crow #visionary #visionaryartist #visionaryart #wildness #sacred #sacredart #thewellofbelonging

An approaching storm - I took this just before A firewalk last year - we were on the way back from building the logs up and offering our intentions to the fires spirit - the clouds gathered in and it looked like we might not get any fire going if the rain came - but it passed and the sky cleared to a starlit evening under which we walked barefoot over burning coals and faced our fears . It was a good day 😊#art #otherworldly #sky #spirit #stormcloudsgathering #naturephotography #elements #weather #elementals #photography #supernaturalart #wonder #blacknwhitephotography #thewellofbelonging #broodingskies

One of the things I love to do is create and play with imagery - this is one of a few photos I’ve taken and worked into OtherWorldly Art over the last 5 years or so . I usually sense when I take a normal photo something else within it  that wishes to be seen - so I’ll work with the spirit of what wants to come through and co-create the pictures. I was never that good at drawing or painting so it was lovely to be guided to finding a way to express the visions and inner and outer landscapes I often encounter. Hope you like them! This one I call Tree Spirit.  #woodlandspirit #art #faery #strange #otherworld #dryads #soulfull #wildness #wildtherapy #otherworldly #spiritofthewoods #thewellofbelonging

People say they don’t think another way of living is possible because to confront that reality ,is to open to the notion that the way in which you have lived until now has been a half life , half lived.
It is to open to the sorrow, grief and loss of all the good that could of been but wasn’t, to let that wash through you and realise you still have the power to create that change. You can use that realisation to open you up to new possibilities, by simply choosing to do things differently.  It’s always possible. Just make a different choice.  #thewellofbelonging #healing #otherworlds #wildness #changetheworld #art

Sunlight on water - taken on a lovely walk through Narnia with my wild and wise friend Helen , a very magical place that reminded me of Wistman woods in Dartmoor. #otherwordly #faeryrealm #wildwood #naturalhealing #naturephotography #sunlightonwater #autumn🍁 #thewellofbelonging
Oak leaf - standing strong.🌞 I was struck by the way in which this one tiny leaf of oak demonstrated exactly what the Flower Essence of Oak is about . It is an essence that gives strength to those who need a little bit extra umph to carry out their task or role , shown here through the vibrancy of its colour , its strong structure. The curling leaf edges remind me of arms held out  as if waiting to hold or carry something-mirroring how it is also for those who take on responsibility willingly , but often push  themselves too hard, only slowing down or stopping when the body gives way to illness or injury . In this case oak helps you to take care and look after your own needs BEFORE meeting obligations.
It teaches that we cannot be of service to others or look after anything, if we don’t first look after ourselves .I see this aspect reflected in the leaf reclining and resting on the woodland floor , soaking up the sunshine, reviving its energy in the light .  It’s also good for strengthening the knees and connecting our legs to our body energetically- helps you find your roots and your feet .  You’ll notice the leaf is much broader at the top and tapers down to be much narrower at the bottom - broad shoulders , weak legs - the top half carries all the weight but isn’t sufficiently supported to do so - oak essence helps to redress this imbalance of trying to do it all yourself instead of allowing others to help you . If you find you are carrying too heavy a burden and your legs can’t hold the weight you get a bad back or your knees give way . Oak helps you learn to lessen your load and carry only what you can comfortably manage , metaphorically speaking . 
Most people in need of Oak essence wont recognise they need it because of their natural inclination to be stoic and keep calm and carry on no matter what. It truly is a wonderful essence !  #floweressences #oakleaf #woodland #floweressencetherapy #bachflowerremedies #forrestfloor #wildmedicine #naturalhealing #soulhealing #energyhealing #energymedicine #plantspiritmedicine #wildtherapy #thewellofbelonging

I loved finding this - never seen a mushroom with spikes before . Does anyone know why it’s like this ? #mushrooms #woodland #autumn🍁 #mushroommadness #thewellofbelonging

Such a beautiful sight - seeing these all through the local woods really cheers me up #flyagaric #mushroommadness #mushrooms #naturephotography #thewellofbelonging
I went out again on a wild mushroom hunt and discovered yet more of my woodland friends and some of their mates!
