Death and the Mysterious Shamans

Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming (compilations and additions) – I have always known that powerful shamans, if interrupted by death in our collective work to eradicate darkness on this planet before their real time to leave, could find restitution and keep their work going even after death without black magic but of the light. Mystical…

Slavic Moon Wards and Wardcraft for the Dreamers

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Slavic amulets are as old as woman herself and they have the power for both the good and selfish means. Our artist/shaman ancestors valued symbolism from neolithic times and shared their sacred creativity on rocks and caves, the same as modern sacred artists, peasants, wizards, witches, embroiderers and weavers, and…

The Light Side of the Night

The Light side of the Night is the ancient Dreaming cultures and the later Shamanic cultures of earth which were created, lead, nurtured and dominated by the grandmothers.

Rain Ceremony

Rain Towards Morning The great light cage has broken up in the air,  freeing, I think, about a million birds  whose wild ascending shadows will not be back, and all the wires come falling down.  No cage, no frightening birds; the rain  is brightening now. The face is pale  that tried the puzzle of their prison …

abracadabra

Additions by Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Word magic, ideas of magic as an alphabetical river, weaving a mysterious interlacing of mental characters, mental words and the mind’s spoken voice was adopted in the middle ages. This was how magic was marked by written forms of symbols that were much older and changed. Then there were the…

Mamuthones

Mamuthones Grandmother says I’m the first, before the men dressed in my clothing. Mamuthones Donna, Mamuthones Nonna… sono il primo nato, prima che gli uomini vestiti nei miei vestiti.  In the village of Mamoiada, the bonfires offer a supernatural background to another event, a lot more important to local people; the first yearly procession of mamuthones and issohadores, masked…

Dream Springs

As a healer who helps others, I am extremely devoted to my own self healing path, and this was out of survival and necessity.

Sleep & Dream are Sisters who Communicate with each other

The great shift has occurred into dreaming now, with the Aug. 21, 2018 Eclipse that occurred. The moon time now begins as the sun cult, the time and space of the waking dream begins to end. Like light chasing the night, now night chases the light. Dream well my friends, its time to wake up,…
