Nature spirit?

Postby shirley mclaren » 30 Jun 2014, 07:28

Went for a lovely walk yesterday. Lots of blackberries starting to form fruit. As I walked by, I caught sight of a tiny little face out the corner of my eye, peaking through the leaves. Very sweet. I like to think it was a nature spirit.

When I was walking the first miles of my spirit-path I had a teacher that was really "into" the small folk, otherkin, or how you want to name it. I often used to say that the day I see, with my physical eyes, little gnomes running about I would go to get my head checked first... Now I think about things a bit more nuanced... For me personally, I see the life, the soul, the spirit, in nature in small physical things: waterchrystals frozen on a spiderweb, a single leaf dancing on an unseen current of wind, a songbird beside the path serenading me. My inner images are a great deal wilder, allowing for dragons, fairykin, and whatnot...

When you are relaxed, inner and outer images will mix. I often see dragons and thunderbirds in clouds. Enjoy your memory, regardless of what your mind says you've seen.
Three sounds one should treasure:
the whisper of the wind through the leaves
the songs of one's heart
the callings of the universe
