Happy Mother’s Day

secretsoftheserpent

First, I would like to take the time to say Happy Mother’s Day to my readers.  I hope that today will be a day that you find how much power you really have.  If it wasn’t for our mothers, there really would be no human race.  So take time to give your mom a hug today and thank her for all she has done.  Most think Mother’s day is a United States invention.  Well the capitalist version you see today is, but Mother’s day was held in many ancient societies and goes all the way back to….you guessed it, Ancient Egypt.

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – The Goddess as Mother Earth is my relationship in the Slavic traditions of Marzanna and Dziewanna (pronounced gee-wanna). These are seasonal and oppositional Sisters or Twins that carry a “wholeness” of the entire yearly season divided into the thirteen moons: Spring/Summer is ruled by Dziewanna and Autumn/Winter is ruled by Marzanna. Each of the two rule the two seasons that are six moons (months) long. All their rituals were once lead by the mature adult woman and the grandmothers.

There is not much historical writings of Dziewanna and Marzanna, but there still are a few simplified rituals in Slavic countries and Poland that have survived.

Wind Horse, Lightning Horse, Water Horse and the Mari Lawd Horse

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

Winged horses combines the sacred animism symbolism of the Soul (bird wings) in the form of earth element (movements of the horse) and the chthonian (underworld) animal of psychopomp (retrieving the sol from the underworld) for purifying karma and spiritual elevation. These are from an ancient time of the Soul cultures of both shamanism, animism and pre-shamanic dreaming cults.
 
The origin of the symbolism are associated with traditions that mention links to the image of lightning and  animals, supported by the diffusion of the horse. This symbol is a part of our soul imagination into manifestation through the shamanic practices (non plant, non drug shamanism) where the shaman enters their own animism soul (wing | animal) to go through different states of soul (not mental) consciousness expansion to see the dreaming realms in awakened states. Most myths through written languages have corrupted or changed the origin meanings and today they still do…

Baal

secretsoftheserpent

It is common practice in this world for the winners of war to write their version of history. This is also true when it comes to political, social and religious structures. Once a civilization is conquered, everything about that civilization is replaced, renamed or discredited. All the wars that have been fought on this planet, it is no wonder we can’t remember anything about our history. In this post I will bring back the true meaning of the Deity, Baal.

Doe, A Deer, A Female Reindeer: The Spirit of Mother Christmas

Gather Victoria

Oh wondrous headed doe… Amongst its horns it carries the light of the blessed sun…” Hungarian Christmas Folk Song

Long before Santa charioted his flying steeds across our mythical skies, it was the female reindeer who drew the sleigh of the sun goddess at winter solstice. It was when we “Christianized” the pagan traditions of winter, that the white bearded man i.e. “Father Christmas” was born.

santareindeer

Today it is her beloved image that adorns Christmas cards and Yule decorations – not Rudolph. Because unlike the male reindeer who sheds his antlers in winter, it is the larger and stronger doe, who retains her antlers. And it is she who leads the herds in winter.

So this season, when we gather by the fire to tell children bedtime stories of Santa and his flying reindeer – why not tell the story of the ancient Deer Mother of old? It was she…

The Flow State

secretsoftheserpent

I talk about being in the Flow State and how magic can put you in the flow state, but what really is the Flow State? The Flow State is what happens when you are not thinking about the past, you are not thinking ahead, you are just thinking about what is in front of you each second. Not thinking with words, just being in the moment. If you are walking in a park and you see a beautiful tree for the first time, don’t think “Wow that is beautiful!”. You just see it and enjoy it for the beauty that it is. When you are in Flow State you are in a moving meditation, meaning your mind is silent.

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

Lepa Mara means beautiful woman when she wakes up in March when the thunder god Perun, her father and the lightning goddess Perunika, her mother makes their first thunder and lightning together to open heaven’s gates in Spring for their daughter Mara. Mara and her Mother Perunika are symbols of feminine rebirth and resurrection of nature from its winter sleep into spring.

In the homes of the ancient Slavs there were small altars in the corner of the house with wax, amber or wooden figurines where girls and women used to offer sacrifices like flowers, ribbons, embroidered napkins, etc. A fire burns or candles here that could be put out only using your fingers, otherwise the peace of the house would be put out with it.

Mother and daughter also represent the feminine or female principle embodied of woman which are: The primal principles, the soul, the instinctual and intuitive…
