Return from White Owl Island – Heather Blakey

with 2 comments

I returned from the White Owl humbled. She did not offer me advice when I asked for guidance as I lead so many travellers through a foreign realm. Instead she gave me this pastoral crook as a symbol of divine creative power. She assured me that with this crook on my staff I could guide others on the spiral journey of regeneration.Now I am not sure what I will do with my free time here in Duwamish. I might wander down to the Gypsy encampment by the bridge or I might return to the bath-house where the Ferry Women and Priestesses bathe. My room in the Inn is very comfortable and from my window I can see the light house on White Owl Island and mentally plot the path I walked to meet White Owl.

I have been out and about with my sketch book and visited the big bollards near the jetty and White Owl Farm. It was the most lovely day out. I had my bag, with some sandwiches and a drink tucked inside and slept to the sound of the ocean pounding near the bedroom window when I finally got back to my hideaway retreat.

Last days at Owl Island before packing and going to the Land of Standing Stones with le Enchanteur and adventurous travellers. Owl Island has been such a lovely place to retreat to that I feel sure I will return soon to rest and regenerate.

Everyone loves White Owl Island – a space of rest and retreat in Nature with Fran’s (the Resident Crone.) wise owls for company, whispering sea grasses, and big, wide skies.  The rush of the sea is the only sound to be heard.  Time to rest, read, explore, or paint, as Heather does there.   If you want to go to Owl Island for a dose of creative R&R, contact Heather.  Lemuria is full of amazing places to explore, even if just for a day trip, not far from the City of Ladies, or other parts of this magical land.

Pandora’s Gift – Heather Blakey

Prometey rejects Pandora’s gift — Pandora’s box with diseases, vices and disasters.
(Engraving on bronze, 2-3 B.C. Musee de Louvre, Paris)

Pandora’s Gift

Bearing Pandora’s gift prominently on her heart
Seared by Vulcan’s reddened, blazing, branding iron
She wore the scars of self-doubt
Her battle coat stained, shredded
By the beak of the very falcon
Who relentlessly clawed, pecked at Prometheus
Vulnerable, chained,
She stood defiant
Until the raven came
Bearing the self-sowing seeds of self-confidence

Inner Ear and Third Eye – Heather Blakey

with 4 comments

An expansive inner ear
luminous
third eye
focused
listening for soft sounds of a butterflies wings
water droplets
the relentless ticking of time
touching
seeing
smelling the outside world
sensing
knowing it is time to come

The timing is right
born to be an artist
listening
touching
seeing
smelling
sensing
knowing
foretelling.

Pilgrims Entering Lemuria

with one comment

 

Each day the Raven comes to the Queen’s Lemurian Chateau and tells her what is happening within the realm. Today the Raven has told the Queen that le Enchanteur is bringing more pilgrims through the enchanted portal and that they will be seeking the elixir of creativity. The Queen smiles! Will she reveal the whereabouts of the elixir? Or will she wait and see which of the eager pilgrims actually finds it?
