I had a dream!!!!

I was riding a male elephant in a precession with about 5 other elephant. I gave the elephant I was to ride on, some leaves, and he picked me up very gently and carefully and placed my on his back, as he knew that I was pregnant and needed to be treated with care. I rode on his back with the crowd cheering on either side and then came to a house where I was taken off the elephant by the matriarch of the group and placed very gently on the ground at the front door…..when I was reaching out to open the door I woke up!!! But the way the elephants treated me has stayed with me…so I decided to look up what the meaning of elephants.
 As a dream animal, elephants come into our dreams it is a message that we are able to deal with any obstacle we are faced with at this time.
 Dream elephants represent power, sovereignty, stability, and stead-fastness.
 If you dream that you are riding an elephant this suggests you have a tendency to be the leader of the family, and others are heavily depending on you.
 We gather more symbolic meaning of elephant by observing it in nature. Specifically, the elephant is considered a symbol of responsibility because it takes great care and responsibility of its offspring as well as their elders.
 The elephant also has immense determination and loyalty - always standing up for others and always defending members of the group in its natural habitat.
• Elephants also express advanced sensitivity and social connection, particularly during time of death - they travel to a specific place upon their death - fulfilling personal responsibility - even at the end of their days.
• To dream of riding an elephant, denotes that you will possess wealth of the most solid character, and honours which you will wear with dignity. You will rule absolutely in all lines of your business affairs and your word will be law in the home.
• To see many elephants, denotes tremendous prosperity.
• To dream of feeding one, denotes that you will elevate yourself in your community by your kindness to those occupying places below you.
Root Chakra: - Charges through blockages. Protects. Remembers. Loves closeness. Social. Effective. Animals message I provide
Symbolic elephant meaning deals primarily with strength, honour, stability and patience, among other attributes.
To the Hindu way of thought, the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha who is the god of luck, fortune, protection and is a blessing upon all new projects. Ganesha in all his magnificently vibrant elephant glory, is intent on bulldozing obstacles on your behalf (funnily, male elephants are termed "bulls").
In many western cultures, the elephant meaning pertains to:
• Reliability
• Dignity
• Power
• Royalty
• Pride
In Christian symbolism the elephant is an icon of temperance, patience, and chastity.
As a Chinese symbol, the elephant is considered a symbol of:
• happiness
• longevity
• good luck
Some Asian cultures also believe the elephant is a cosmic creature, and carries the world upon its back (much like the tortoise does in some tribal Native American myths).

Eat, Pray, Love

If you haven't read it

the book is called, Eat, Pray, Love and it's by Elizabeth Gilbert.....and it's a must read....

Elizabeth goes from a very bad Italy to eat her body well...then to India to pray her soul well...then to Indonesia to love herself back to life!!!

I have to say that i have loved this book enormously....the part where she was in India to learn to find God...was an eye opener to me.....

We are "God", or "Divine" or the "Goddess" whatever you wish to call it....

To find "God" to love yourself warts and all....

To find "God" is to love yourself unconditionally.....

To find "God" is to let love rule your heart....

To find "God" is to let love rule your heart and rule your head......

Each day i am trying to say that i love myself...

Each day i look at the life i have and try to give thanks...

Each day i look at my kids and tell them that i love them....

Each day i look at my hubby and give thanks for the wonderful man that he is...

Each day i will give thanks that i have all that i need to live..and then more...

Each day i will give thanks for the wonderful friends that i have in my life....

Each day i will give thanks for the wonderful family i have both here in Australia and England....

Each day i will give thanks to be alive....

Blessed Be

Sad Days

We have a funeral to go to on Thursday.....Hubby's Mamma (grandma) died on Friday she was almost 94 so had a good life...but she could have had a few more but for a issue with the nursing home she was in. She had fallen and broke her hip so they had to put a plate and screws into her hip....she said to her youngest son that after this she had no wish to go she fear that she was not going to be able to walk freely again.....she was not even supposed to be getting up on her own anymore....but there was no-one there to help her!!!!

I never really knew her that well but she was a grand old lady, she had had a hard life but a good one, and her sponge cake was to die for.

Rest in peace Joan

I'm Back!!!!

Well I'm all fixed...

Seems that we got a virus and our computer was a new hard drive we were given.....

Nothing like the old one...

Cant find a thing....

Happy that computer fix it guys took an image of our old hard drive and gave that back to us....

So no photo's were lost....

Makes you realise that in this wonderful digital world we live in...if we could not use the Internet, or access a computer...alot of us would be lost...

I mean who has any encyclopedia in the house? or reference books? i wonder if we have become way too reliant on the World Wide Web that knowledge that used to be passed down in a traditional way has been lost?

I remember my elders sitting down and talking, telling stories, all of which had a moral or a lesson in them in some shape or form...that seems to been put by the way side.....

Don't you think so?

3 years today...where has the time gone

Today is the 3rd anniversary of my Dads passing...and I'm wondering where the time has gone?

Bear was only 9 months old when his Papa passed, and we took the 24 hour trip back to the UK...and although he was a great baby on the flight and overseas....the trip was a very hard one...

DollyGirl wasn't even a thought at this stage....I was not ever going back for another go....well i did and i have to say i am so very glad i did as my daughter is so beautiful, loving, funny and a really little ratbag!!!!

She has brought about some very positive changes in my life and our families life...

so all things happen for a reason...

To my wonderful Dad,

Thank you for the lessons that you taught me,
Thank you for letting me make my own mistake,
Thank you for being there to help pick up the pieces
Thank you for being my horse all those years ago when i was only I'm the horse...and boy is it hard on your knees
Thank you for the wonderful dolls house you made us...we had hours of fun with that
Thank you for letting spend all that time just watching you in the garage....
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for being proud of me
Thank you for telling me

Dear Dad i miss you everyday, but i am always grateful for the time i had with you and will treasure it always

Your loving daughter xxxx

Friday, May 21, 2010


I have been thinking for a while what to do for Yule this year as I am starting to teach my children about the wheel of the year. Well a very good friend and fellow witch gave me an email about making your own Yule logs....from toilet rolls..of all the kids and I will be giving this a go over the next week....I will post the photo's and how to make these Yule logs as soon as we finish them!!!

Should be lots of fun.....

Here is a bit about Yule for those that don't know much about it...

Yule – Winter Solstice
June 21st (southern Hempishere)

Yule represents the rebirth of the God within the sacred fire of the mother Goddess. We welcome the return of the God. It’s time to reflect on the hidden energies lying dormant in winter, not only in our Earth but within ourselves as well.

Colours: - White, sliver, red, green and gold
Fruit: - berries, apples, oranges and lemons
Trees: - Holly, oak and pine

Burn a Yule log to celebrate the coming of the warmer months and that life comes from death.
Gift giving in a coven or group – have people write down something positive about each person in the group and then pass this paper around the group for all to add their thoughts.

I am also putting all our names into a hat and the idea is that you have to do two nice things for that person before the night of Yule....and it has to be without them asking you.....not sure how my 15 month old will go with this but you have to start somewhere...

Strange but true

I had thought that i would have had more time to blog now that I've given up on Zoo World.....but it was not to be....

Sick kiddies and sick me does not for good blogging make!!!

it's been a wee bit like snotsville and coughsville in one here in the King household!!! we have just brought out coles & woolies for their tissues teehee...but we are on the mend thank the Goddess......

It would seem that Hubby is the resistant one this time...who'd have thought!

I did mange to be a wee bit creative over the last couple of weeks, making handmade bookmarks and cards with my symbols on them...i will be uploading them to my website in the next couple of days so please go take a look and of course buy lots....pretty please!!!! with a cherry on the top...

Also have been doing some great tarot spreads...which have highlighted how far i have come on my spiritual journey so far......

I have always been very strong in my beliefs sometime to the point of i would want others to know that i was right...or that my beliefs were the true ones....sounds very self-obsessed, very arrogant.....well that was me a few years ago...

and it served me well up to a point....well now i still have those same strong beliefs but now i don't feel the need to be as aggressive with them....i think that now i am more comfortable with who i am and what i believe in that i don't feel the need to prove anything anymore.

I am a witch....i do perform spells, rituals and I'm not worried who i am comfortable in my own skin and if anyone has a problem they may need to look to themselves not to me.

Spiritual life holds an attraction to me now that i can not refuse nor do i wish too. As i go about introducing the wheel of the year to my 3 year old and my 15 month old i am finding that i look at each Sabbat with fresh eyes and it's wonderful to feel, i am again energised with Mother Earth and all she can provide for us.

Our next sabbat coming up with be i will be posting the ideas that i have come up with to help explain this sabbat to my children.

Blessed Be

Strange Dreams

Over the last few nights my dreams have been strange indeed...

They all seem to centre around me losing my children in some form or another...

Last nights dream was...

I was at a new years eve party...with the children and i was having a good time when all of a sudden it's 2 minutes to midnight and i cant seem to find two of my i had Bear (my son) with me but couldn't find my other son and daughter...

Now the very strange thing here is i only have two children a boy and a girl...

but in all my dreams lately there has always been another child and it's a boy and he is between my son and daughter in age so that would make him about 2...

Anyway i then try to get my phone to work to call hubby / friends about the missing children but you know how it is in dreams you can never seem to dial the right numbers or even turn the phone on....

well a friend at the party tells me that my daughter bumped her head but it wasn't bad and she was taken away....take where...hubby has her.....

The dream ends with my trying to get my hubby to let me see my daughter...but he wont...

Strange but true

My New Dragon

Ok as I said I now have only one Dragon guide at the moment,but I don't think I could cope with anymore with this Dragon around!!!!

This new Dragon is old and he is now a rich ochre colour with gold under tones.
His name is Rtapu Cai which means Silent One. Rtapu comes from Arnhem Land.
Arnhem Land in Australia is the Aboriginal homeland where the Dreamtime lives in song and dance, where legend, myth and history interweave with today’s realities, where innumerable sacred sites are forever hidden from prying eyes, and where the white man (or any other non-Aboriginal person) is not allowed to enter.
This is no doubt a romanticised view of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory in the Top End of Australia but it may be closer to reality than we think.
Yes, you can visit the peripheries of Arnhem Land, and glimpse a vision of what may lie within, but if you are non-Aboriginal, this is where it ends, and the mysteries of Arnhem Land remain.
Surprisingly, this Aboriginal homeland still carries its European name (after a Dutch ship which made the first European sighting of this region in 1623). But among the people who live there are many Aboriginal place names which invoke their Aboriginality and their past.
Occupying about 97,000 square kilometres of forests and spectacular rivers and gorges east of the Northern Territory capital of Darwin, Arnhem Land is an Aboriginal homeland and sacred to its people.
Those who visit Kakadu and venture east to Ubirr have only to look farther east beyond the East Alligator River to where Arnhem Land begins and no non-Aboriginal person is allowed except with express permission.
The earliest history of Eastern Arnhem Land is recorded in the paintings, dances and songs of the Yolngu , the Aboriginal people of the region, which tell of creation ancestors bringing lands and waters, people, animals and plants into being and laying down the Law that governs them all. The Law defines who owns and manages the lands and waters, essential features of Yolgnu identity and culture.

When I get anymore information about him i will pass it on.

What's new

I have been wanting to write another blog post for a while now and I have started one a number of times...

But I never seem to finish them...

I cant seem to put into words my thoughts and feelings of the last few weeks.....

As I said in my last post the time of Mabon is now well and truly upon us.....we will be soon making ready for Samhain..which is when the veil between the between the world of the living and the world of the dead is the thinnest. At Samhain, Wiccans lay down their grief at the loss of loved ones and send their respects.

I feel that i am standing on the edge of something really big.....

Something that has been coming for a very long time....

Something that I have been expecting....but have no idea what it is....

Yet it feels very familiar.....

As if I have traveled this path before.....

In another life maybe or maybe I am tapping into the collective unconscious.....

My dreams have been vivid but I am unable to remember them...

Which for me is unusual as I have always been able to write my dreams down the next morning...or if a very vivid one that wakes my up, that night.....

The energies that are around me at present are very different but then again strangely familiar.....

The Dragons that normally work with have gone for the moment...and have been replaced by just one very old, wise and sometimes cranky Dragon...He is a sage amongst his kind which means he teaches the young hatching's the male energies of each element and will often take on apprentices from the hatching's that show promise. These apprentices still need to serve as Guardian Dragons but will normally only do so for a shorter period of time. Sages are also the guardians of ideas, power, change, time etc. They store these elements to be used as needed; we can as we learn to work more closely with Dragons use these when the time is right.

He told me, I will be taking the next step in my life's journey, and that he is here to guide me.....

He has given me his name but i will be sharing that and the other information concerning him in my next post as it's a story all on it's own....

I will also be combining this blog and my other blog on Dragons as He has let me know that part of the next step is to be more open about my workings and dealings with Dragons....

apologises for those that may have read some of the information coming up in the next few post but i will be expanding on them more....

So watch this space as they say....

Blessed Be

As we are coming into the energies that is Mabon.....

I have been doing a lot of reflecting.....


My life

My marriage

My kids

My current position on my spiritual path

My family

My friends....

and before i go into more depths on any of them I'd just like to give you some information about Mabon....

this is the time of the autumn equinox, and the harvest is winding down. The fields are nearly empty, because the crops have been plucked and stored for the coming winter. Mabon is the mid-harvest festival, and it is when we take a few moments to honor the changing seasons, and celebrate the second harvest. On or around September 21, for many Pagan and Wiccan traditions it is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings.

Demeter and Her Daughter

Perhaps the best known of all the harvest mythologies is the story of Demeter and Persephone. Demeter was a goddess of grain and of the harvest in ancient Greece. Her daughter, Persephone, caught the eye of Hades, god of the underworld. When Hades abducted Persephone and took her back to the underworld, Demeter's grief caused the crops on earth to die and go dormant. By the time she finally recovered her daughter, Persephone had eaten six pomegranate seeds, and so was doomed to spend six months of the year in the underworld. These six months are the time when the earth dies, beginning at the time of the autumn equinox.

So as to what i have been pondering....


My life it would seem to me to be coming full circle.....I feel that i have been in this time / place before...but then i feel i took a wrong turn from now it's time to look at the crossroads again and choose a different path.....

That said....on the path i chose i have learnt many lessons that i am grateful for...

This new path will see me in a happy and loving relationship with my Husband...

This new path will see me having a fun and happy time with my children....

This new path will see me enjoying being a full time mum.....

This new path will see me finishing the first of my 7 children's books that i am writing.....

This new path will see me learning the tarot and using my knowledge.....

This new path will see me loving my family more...

This new path will see me loving my Friends...all of them no matter what.....

This new path will see me enjoying all that life and love has to offer

1st Tarot lesson

Today i had my first 1-1 tarot lesson....

I had a ball....

I was very nervous when Teach asked me to read the cards for her.....

I mean she is like the best i know at tarot...but i soon got over that...Teach put me at ease right from the start....

I learnt heaps and i am still buzzing from it.

I am hoping to do a lesson once a fortnight that way i can practice in the days in between...

Going to continue with picking a card each day and seeing what they mean to me.....

Today when we asked what was going on in 2010 for Teach we got 3 major cards.....
You hardly ever seen 3 major cards come out in a reading...but yes with Teach it's always the norm!!!!

and for me...well Teach said that you don't often see the High Priestess card come out.....and i often get her in my own readings...and yes she appeared again today in mine...

we had a laugh over that one....

anyway off to play with cards again....

Love my new tarot deck

I know i have probably said this a few time already but i am really loving my new Tarot deck....

Legacy of the Divine by Ciro Marchetti

In order to familiarise myself with them i have been picking a card must days and then just looking at the images and seeing what comes to me. I write these words / phase and then i look at the book that came with the cards to see if I'm on the right track.

I have to say in all honesty that i am getting what the meaning of the card is everytime. The book helps me to put my words into proper sentence and helps me to understand what that card could mean if it came up in a reading.

Cant wait to do a reading with them, just to see how i go.....

got my first 1-1 tarot lesson looking forward to it......

some amazing stuff

today i was chatting to a friend on facebook, when my new tarot cards arrived....

there are the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti..

I was shuffling them just to get a feel for them....

and then i felt the need to pull three cards for my friend

i got

4 of Cups
The Lovers
Faith (Hierophant)

I said that he had been feeling like he was "struck in a Rut"
self absorbed, failure to find meaning in his life

Yes to all the above he said (or typed as we were on facebook teehee)

Said that he was at a crossroads and need to make a decision be that morally or ethically.....about an upcoming important decision...a choice between vice and virtue

Said that to teach is to learn and that a teacher/mentor was coming his way...

He said wow...

so did i!!!!

could be a while

Had to cancel little girls birthday party tomorrow as I'm not up to it, still very tired and now it would seem that I've come down with a cold....

which on it's own would not have bothered me...but due to spider bite...but as my immune system is it would seem am i....

I feel that i have been hit by a mack truck....

hopefully will OK in a few days....but as house is a mess and i don't have the energies to clean it...really not up for lots of people to entertain either...

will make it up to little girl on her other birthdays

Spiderwomen update

well i can now swing from the ceiling and have a new job as a window cleaner!!!

only kidding,

I am better now, i went to the matar on Mon night and ended up having antibiotic not the anti-venom as there were too many side effects of the anti-venom.

I am very grateful that i was the one bitten and not my children as the pain was bad.....

Now i am on strong antibiotics and will see how long it takes to be 100% better....Dr said anywhere from 10 days to 2 months!!!!

Thanks to all those that have been sending my reiki and calling / emailing to see how i've been....

An apology is needed

I feel that I owe you Lisa an apology, it would seem that i have as i often do, jumped in with both my feet right up to my ears...

I do understand that your remark about "it being a relief" that i had gone was because you were thinking that i was coming to the cottage because i felt like i had to not because i wanted to...but that was never the case...i made my decision to leave YAAD due to personal issue of my own that had nothing what so ever to do with the cottage, you or what had happen.

I have tried very hard not to take sides as you have mentioned and i thought i was doing well at that, but it would seem that, that is not the case anymore.

I do wish that you had, as you said in your comments on my blog, tried to contact me for a face to face meeting, you have never tried. the last time i physically saw you was the second to last Monday night YAAD class before we went on the Christmas break. The only other contact we have had has been an email form yourself asking if i wished to join the committee, but i did not wish to for the same reasons as i gave for finishing YAAD.

My wish now is for this all to die it's natural death and for everyone to move on without the knives coming out again.

Please can you ask others that have not been involved from the beginning, or have not been to a YAAD class to please stop jumping on the band waggon, comments etc.

I will be removing all comments from the last blog post, but not the posts them selves as it is my blog and my feeling that i have been writing for not everyone else.

Go in peace and blessings

Almost One

Where has the time gone...DollyGirl will be one next week.........oh my dear......but she is such a cutie

One wonders

It would seem that some people still feel the need to comment...go on and on about what they may or may not really know about...

but in the end it's a free world so will go on with my life as i have always...speaking my truth

and let other worry about themselves...

that as they say is all folks

"it's a relief she's gone"

yes that was something that was said about me.....

after knowing someone for over 4 years....i have come to the conclusion that i never really knew them at all...

and now have to say that's probably just as well...

on to chapters new...

with a

light heart....

open heart.....


open mind....

Best ritual ever


Double WOW, WOW

And how amazing it was too....

The energy was unbelievable.....

The ritual was simple but very magickal.....

The company was fantastic....

And the run onto the oval with my dear Kylie was so well Kylie, it was also very grounding and just plain fun....that girl is a part fairy part dragon for sure...

My most sincere thanks to Diana and Renata for organizing the whole think and of course

Blessings and gratitude to Esme for her wonderful teaching and wisdom...

Another one bites the dust

Well after a long hard look at my life's path...

I am no longer attending YAAD (Year and a Day)

I not longer feel that i am getting anything out of the classes...and no it's not the teacher...Renata you were great..but it's missing the good energy that it had.

I will not now expect second best and for my this was becoming second best.

I am going to be consenting on educating my children into the Wheel of the Year...i have picked up some very good books online that give you great stories and craft ideas to do with your children and that's what i wish to do.

I am also going to be doing a one-on-one mentoring to try and build up my physic side...learn the tarot cards better.....on that note I've brought some great tarot cards from an artist called Ciro Marchietti....they are so beautiful...i couldn't decide on which set to buy so i have brought both...will use them both to see which ones talk to me the most.

I am looking at this as a new chapter in my life and i am thankful for all lessons that i have learnt in the last 4 years at the cottage. My hope is that it doesn't close but will wait and see.

Blessed Be

Thoughts and Good Friends

I have so many thoughts going around in my head at the moment that it's making me dizzy.....

Sometimes i feel that i would love to take the top off of my head and just let them all float away....

I should just do that but maybe...

Oh what am i saying i would never be able to let them go...that would be too easy right?

I want to do whats best for my kids and I but i am not really sure what the best is...

again too many thoughts

too many ideas...

too many what if's

but a have some very great friends who are happy to listen to me going on about the said too many thoughts in my head...and they give me some very good advice too about those thoughts too.

to my very dearest friend....don't worry i'm not about to jump into anything without prior thought!!!!!

Goddess divine, one, two, three
How will you set yourself free

You will know the prize to pay
In order for you to get away

Stand alone or stand as three
Three is divine and meant to be

Reflect awhile on the moons soft glow
The knowledge is here for you know

Truth lies in perfect love
To fit your heart like a glove

As above so below
Life and love will always flow

Well i'm back.....

Not sure why I'm writing on this blog again...but something have been happening in my life that...well I'm rather sad about...

I have been wondering about enlightenment (is that a now) and spiritualism...and i have found that some people seem to have a lot to say about these subjects but when you look closely at their actions they do not hold up.

It makes me sad to think that i have been apart of something for quite some years, been influenced by people only to now have an energy around me that i do not like or wish for.....

Spiritualism to me is about how your words / actions impact on those around you....are you creating a welcoming, caring, loving energy around you? or are you creating a disruptive, cold, hard energy?

Awhile ago i made a decision not to continue to gossip...i was i have to admit one of the worse to gossip, one of the first...but someone gave me a book called "The four Agreements" by Don Miguelo Ruiz and the very first agreement is:-

"Be Impeccable With Your Word - This entails not indulging in gossip or negative self talk. The spoken word being a powerful one, should be used to spread love. Following this agreement makes one immune to the negativity from others. Being impeccable with the word also clears emotional wounds"

This struck a real cord with me, and from this moment on i began to see how my gossiping was harmful to myself and others. I no-longer engage in gossip and still find it hard to understand those who profess to be "spiritual...or on a spiritual path" contiune to do so....
