If any of these animals accidentally cross your path, powerful omens are presented to you according to ancient cultures and their Old Ways.
Omens and the Old Religion During the Old Times, animals and plants were all associated with Gods and Goddess. Athena had Owl as her sacred animal while Poseidon protected Horses and Artemis (Diana) deers. Everyone had a soft spot for animals, therefore close encounters with animals were supposed to be divine interventions at some point. We have selected the ones who are considered to be the most powerful omens of all.
An important notice before analysing the omens. Sometimes, the “accidental” appearances of Animals can be the encounters of our Totem Animals, trying to catch our attention. For more information about how to find out your Totem Animal click here.
Owls are believed to be harbingers of doom and carriers of unimaginable wisdom at the same time.(Read here more about Owls as totem animals) Maybe owls know things and they appear to warn us about what is coming – usually something huge – either this is for good or ill. Owls have been associated with many gods and goddess but one of the most powerful association is with Athena (Minerva) the Goddess of Wisdom in Ancient Greece.
When an Owl appears one has to be extra careful about his/her next steps as the Owl tries to make us ready for what’s coming (it doesn’t have to be bad but it’s certainly very important or even life-changing). If you are a Witch, the appearance of an Owl probably means that our magic is strong and we should be very careful with the energies we summon. We should choose wisely!
Owls are not omens of Bad Luck or Harbingers of Doom (they can be if we see two owls fighting and shouting over a house). They are messengers of Great News. Owls are considered Royal Birds, therefore seeing them can be considered as omens of success.
Spiders are also associated with the Goddess Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom. Spiders are also considered sacred animals as their web symbolises that we are all connected with each other and all nature. However, the appearance of a Spider does not have the same meaning as Owls. Spiders are trying to “ward” or remind us of a friend.
In ancient time Spiders were omens for a friend (either from the past or a close friend). We will probably soon meet this friend who is going to give us brand new information. In general, Spiders are good omens, bearers of Good Luck.
“If you find a spider at night, it means good luck.” Kemp P. Battle
You walk by the street thinking of your daily routine when for some reason a cat caught your attention. You refuse to believe that this is important but the cat for some reason follows you and tries even harder to make you turn around. The cat is the personification of intuition (click here to read more about Cats as totem animals). When a Cat appears out of nowhere and for some reason and you can’t help but notice their weird and cute moves, it’s an omen (or omens) that you have to listen to your heart.
Cats are associated with powerful and Wise Goddesses like Bast, Freya and Brigid. The weird cat symbolises your hidden magical and spiritual powers which now you have to listen. If you are a witch then you should probably be more careful the next time you cast a spell as the cat tries to warn you that you’ve probably had to get in touch with your higher self before you cast more spells. The Colours of cats do matter:
White Cats: symbolise fertility and change in romantic affairs
Orange Cats: symbolise different planes of existence and spiritual travels
Black Cats: symbolise the change of Luck (for good or ill) and Wisdom
1. Pain In Your Head.
Pain in your head, like headaches, can be caused by stresses of the day. Take some time to relax and ease the stress every day.
2. Pain In Your Neck.
If you feel pain in your neck, you may have trouble forgiving others or yourself. If you’re feeling neck pain, consider the things you love about people.
3. Pain In Your Shoulders.
Shoulder pain may indicate that you’re carrying a heavy emotional burden. That’s where the saying “shouldering a problem” comes from. Focus in on some proactive problem solving and distributing some of that burden to other people in your life.
4. Pain In Your Upper Back.
Upper back pain means you don’t have enough emotional support. You may feel unloved and unwanted. If you’re single, this may mean it’s time to go out on a date or two.
Keep your conversations brief, don’t tackle all of this at once.
You’re eager to help your child, but it’s not always easy to accept positive, reassuring comments if you’ve been in a negative-thinking frame of mind. Expect some resistance at first. Especially if your child is not used to seeing things in a different light.
What else can you do?Create an environment of support, encouragement and teach frustration tolerance using these tips.
Ever wanted to be in more than one place at a time? That’s right, I’m talking about the super-human abilities that can be gained by those who follow the protocol for what’s known as sun-gazing, a valid practice recently confirmed by NASA.
Many proponents of this ancient technique, used by many cultures such as Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetian and Indian yoga, report not only healing benefits to common illnesses, but obtaining super-human abilities such as advanced telepathy and going completely without the need for food.
Nikola Tesla quoted
“My idea is that the development of life must lead to forms of existence that will be possible without nourishment and which will not be shackled by consequent limitations. Why should a living being not be able to obtain all the energy it needs for the performance of its life functions from the environment, instead of through consumption of food, and transforming, by a complicated process, the energy of chemical combinations into life-sustaining energy?”
The Spiritual Awakening Symptoms
1. Body aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back. This is the result of intense changes at your DNA level as the "Christ seed" awakens within. More important, your Merkabah, energetic transportal Body, has/is being upgraded and made new. This will be explained and understood more fully as you progress. Suffice to say, ageing, dis-ease, and limitations are freed with-in this New Experiencing Device.
2. Feeling of deep inner sadness for no apparent reason. You are releasing your past (this lifetime and others) and this causes the feeling of sadness. Literally... pieces, parts... "aspects" of YOU are being seen and released/transmuted appropriately. Although, many may not seem difficult to release, others are comfortable personalities that must be reconciled. Say, "good bye," I love you. You have served me well. I no longer need you."
3. Crying for no apparent reason. Similar to #2 above. It's good and healthy to let the tears flow. It helps to release the old energy within. There's a multitude of emotional energies within you now... try not to focus on the "why" and just feel, allow..
1. You’re more in touch with your spiritual foundations through transformative meditation:
You realize, as Jung noted, that “the experience of the Self is always a defeat for the Ego.” And through the seven primary chakras you are becoming one with the cosmos, receptive to stimuli to which, in the time before, you were insensate.
You’ve felt the powerful kundalini energy rising up from your roots, passing through the sacred waters of the sacral, basking in the fire of the solar plexus, breathing in the vital breath of the heart, absorbing the ethereal voice of the throat, pouring through the dissolution of the Third Eye, and spilling up and out like a mighty fountainhead into the greater cosmos.
2. You are beginning to want more freedom and less stuff:
Your heart is not heavy with materialistic burden. You understand that ownership-based love can never be true love. You realize like Osho said, “Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” And although there are some people in the world who are so poor all they have is money, you continue to love without expecting anything in return. You have frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation for the abundance the natural world has to offer. Like Gandhi, you live simply so that others may simply live.
5 Common Misconceptions About Psychics
When it comes to psychics, people think they know all about them. Funny thing is, being a psychic is often like any other career. It has its ups and downs as well as its misconceptions. Here are 5 common myths about psychics.
1.Psychics Just “Cold Read”
Many people (mostly skeptics) accuse psychics of being nothing more that “cold readers,” meaning they use tricks and techniques to get clients to reveal bits of information. Then the psychic turns them around, feeding them back to the client as a “psychic reading.”
Psychics are not mind readers. They don’t know your thoughts, but they can and do sense your energy and feelings.
Granted there are some unscrupulous posers that do this, but real psychics don’t. Psychics get their information from beyond the veil, often with the help of spirit guides and tools like the Tarot. In fact, many psychics are surprised themselves as to the details they receive!
2.Psychics Are Psychic 24/7
People often think that psychics are “on” all the time, but in all honesty, if they were, they’d go crazy. Could you imagine constantly being bombarded with messages, information and visions?
Being psychic is more like tuning into a TV station. You can change channels or even turn it off, but either way the psychic is in control.
3. Psychics Are Mind Readers Here’s another common misconception. People often say, “If you’re psychic, then when’s my birthday?” or some other similar question.Psychics are not mind readers. They don’t know your thoughts, but they can and do sense your energy and feelings. Coupled with their abilities they can pick up on why you’re feeling a certain way.
4. Psychics Can Predict the Future
Being psychic isn’t about predicting the future; rather it’s about seeing possible trends. The future is never set in stone and people have free will, so things can change at any time. The best a psychic can do is tell you about what might cross your path. What happens is up to you.
5.Psychics Can Remove Curses
Psychics who claim that you are cursed are most likely scammers, especially when they tell you they can remove the curse for a fee. Aside from the rare possession by demonic or negative entities, the only way you can be cursed is if you believe you are. And just for the record, psychics can’t put curses on people either. The only one with power over you is you.
