Wolves, guiding outfits, rich hunters and the BC government

Filed under: Anything Else — by Ree @ 1:17 pm

The BC government is at it again… shooting wolves. I have trouble believing they are concerned about caribou unless they are getting something out of those particular caribou herds. I’m reposting this because the BC Libs did the same thing 30 years ago under their Social Credit incarnation. The purpose was to save moose in far northern valley inhabited by 2 hunting lodges who were cronies of the Minister of Environment.
As in all controversial government dealings, follow the money.

Timber Wolf

From a recent article in Counterpunch,Wolf Sterilization Scheme Backfires“, about the BC government’s ill-conceived management prescription for wolves in the Muskwa-Kechika.

I can’t believe that they are still at it with the wolves and the moose in that area. It has been going on for more than 25 years. I don’t remember the year exactly but I think it was in the early part of the 80’s that I worked in a fire camp at Scoop Lake for a short time. Bill Bennett Jr. and the Socreds were in power then.

The Forest Service had started a controlled fire to burn off the underbrush meant to increase food for moose, and it got out of control. It subsequently cost them millions to fight their fire. Everything had to be flown in, from people to food, generators, refrigerators and tents.

By the time I went to work there…

Finally… Stained Glass Antahkaranas listed for sale on Etsy

I’ll see how it goes and maybe start listing on ebay too. But seems like a nice site for handmade artwork. My shop name is Antahkarana Glass Creations, but you only need to search on “antahkarana” to find them. I also have some feather suncatchers listed too.

Hope you enjoy my work, it is always a little nerve wracking to display art “out there”!

The Five Minds

Excerpted and a bit paraphrased from the book Partnering with Spirit: Homer’s Journey
by Ellie Drew

The Five Minds is a concept developed by Ellie Drew as a way to explain how different aspects of ourselves have their own agenda without regard to the others. They are the First or Physical Mind, the Second or Emotional Mind, the Third or Intellectual Mind, the Fourth or Spirit Mind, and the Fifth Mind.

Briefly, the Physical Mind is located in the lower belly area called dan tien, which also corresponds to the second Chakra. The Physical Mind has an agenda that deals only with its physical wants, needs and desires regardless of consequence or rational thinking. It has no need to be loved – only food, shelter and sex – not always in that order. Also, physical health and the desire to have things that will enhance the physical experience.

The Second Mind, the Emotional Mind resides in the solar plexus area, called Golden Bowl in Qigong training. It is where our emotional vulnerability and history reside. The Emotional Mind has one agenda, to be cared about, often times confused with being loved. (more…)

Big Moths and Little Cats Are People Too

Filed under: Beauty,Bugs,Ecology,Environment,Life,Observations — by Ree @ 11:55 pm

The other day, one of our cats brought a huge moth the size of a baby bird into the house and we found it still alive and fluttering helplessly on the floor. It was so big, I actually thought for a moment that it was a bat. Its wings had great big eyes on them and its body and legs were a beautiful rusty coloured soft fur.

Not THE moth, but similar

The Eye of God

This amazing photo came from the Nasa website. They say it looks like a flower, but I see the Eye of God. A feminine eye. Perfect, beautiful, all-seeing, compassionate, and indeed… female.

Three Vision Perspectives

Filed under: Ascension,Lightwork,Meditation,Peace — by Ree @ 11:19 pm

The voice will be all around you in a multitude of ways. Do not worry, you cannot miss it if you know how to read the signs. Learn to look at life from three perspectives.

There is the Land-Walker perspective. You see and name only that which is in front of you in the physical. There is the Water-Way. Are you flowing with ease, holding on or swimming against the current? There is Eagle Vision where you see many sides to a situation and the higher purpose of your lessons, even the painful ones. When you learn to cultivate the Eagle Vision and the Water-Way you will begin to learn the lessons of Inner Listening that cannot be done as a Land-Walker.

Soon you will see meaning in everything. You will begin to see the ebb and flow of your life and all that is around you. You will begin to be in harmony with nature and its rhythms. You will begin to hear nature sing; you will hear celestial music that heals all things.

You will begin to hear My Voice in your play, in your lovemaking, in your sadness, in your slumber, in your joy, in your grief, in your death. It is all an ebb and flow of nature; of the Creative Impulse of Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma; of Yin and Yang. Do not resist the flow; learn the flow well.

We have spoken to you before of the usefulness of Astrology and such things as Tarot cards. These are not sacred things; they are practical things. For if you study them, you will begin to see the patterns in your life. Do not take them from the perspective of the Land-Walker, but first from the perspective of the Water-Way. What is the general flow? When does the theme of the cards or stars change? Then over time, look at it from the Eagle Vision. What are the over-all themes of your life?

Land-Walker Vision is for immediate observation. Water-Way vision is for how you are flowing within the immediate situation and on your life-path. Eagle Vision is for the over all patterns in your life. If you view life only from the perspective of the Land-Walker, it will feel bleak, harsh, meaningless, cruel, reactive. Learn the Water-Way and Eagle Vision and your life will be meaningful, spiritual, filled with joy and gladness.

Stained Glass Antahkarana Designs

Filed under: Lightwork,Meditation,Peace,Reiki,Sacred Geometry,Stained glass — by Ree @ 10:56 pm

Female Antahkarana Male Antahkarana

I’ve adapted both female and the male versions of the Antahkarana symbol so that they can be created in stained glass. While I’m making them, I energize them with Reiki energy so that they can enhance healing and meditation.

Below is a Reiki Grid to be used with crystals.

An update: I do offer my work for sale through my eBay store, Funky Junk & Jewels. I’ve safely shipped stained glass pieces to places all over Canada, the US and other parts of the world.

Each piece is lovingly handmade and unique. I also accept special orders.

The Antahkarana Healing Symbol

Filed under: Ascension,Lightwork,Reiki,Sacred Geometry,Stained glass — by Ree @ 11:57 pm

The Antahkarana is an ancient symbol that has been used as a tool for healing and meditation for thousands of years. Merely having the Antahkarana symbol in your presence helps to focus your energy and increases the power of your healing. This will reduce the time needed to heal, and allow deeper issues to be worked on. It is also used to enhance meditation or any other modality used in energy work towards the purpose of health, well-being and connection to the higher power.

The actual size of the symbol is larger than the male, and the 7's are longer and narrower. The symbol is multidimensional. From one perspective it appears to be two dimensional, being made up of 3 – sevens on a flat surface. The three sevens represent the seven chakras, the seven colours and the seven tones of the musical scale. From another perspective this symbol appears as a three dimensional cube. Its energy moves up from two to three dimensions that can be seen and continues up through unseen dimensions all the way to the highest dimension – the dimension of the Higher Self.

The actual size is smaller than the female, and the 7's are shorter but thicker.

There are two versions of the Antahkarana. The female version is slightly larger than the male version. The female version should be used if you feel that more compassionate energy is needed. The male version is used if you wish to access more assertive energy.

Or consider using both if you wish the yin/yang balance.

To use an Antahkarana in your energy work, hang the stained glass symbol on the wall, or in a window of your healing room, facing the person or area to be healed if possible. However this is not necessary as it doesn’t need to be seen by the person receiving the healing for it to work.

Or hang the symbol in your meditation room and use it for contemplation. You could also simply enjoy it in a window of your bedroom or workplace and still receive benefit from it.

I Choose Love by Shawn Gallaway

I can see laughter
Or I can see tears.
I see a choice…
Love or fear
What do you choose?

Dancing Naked in the Mind Field

There is a general place in your brain, I think, reserved for “melancholy of relationships past.” It grows and prospers as life progresses, forcing you finally, against your better judgement, to listen to country music.
