I was worried this Blue Butterfly Delphinium would not get enough sun to encourage the blooms, but they are opening. “Blue represents both the sky and the sea, and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity. Blue also represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, heaven, and intelligence. … Blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity in heraldry. The color blue in many cultures is significant in religious beliefs, brings peace, or is believed to keep the bad spirits away.” –from https://www.bourncreative.com/meaning-of-the-color-blue/
This is no melancholy blue. It is electric.
Now, I’ve mentioned to you before how special this little acorn cap is. It is a token that represents a very special prayer. You can imagine how thrilled I was to find a Fairy Stone that took on the resemblance of Acorn. These little happenings by the Spirit are very dear to my heart.
Acorn: “A symbol of strength and potential, it was also a Nordic and Celtic symbol of fertility, and immortality. The god Thor’s Life Tree was oak. Druids believed the consumption of acorns would help see the future, and the word Druid can be translated as “Oak Knowledge”. –from https://www.ohmygiddyaunt.com.au/blog/acorns-and-their-meaning
“The name Druid, (teacher/mystic) is based on the Proto-Indo-European words daru (tree & truth) and vid (wisdom). “Acorn” comes from the Celtic words “ac” for oak and “korn” for kernel. “Ac” is based on Ansuz, a Rune of the Elder Futhark in the Proto-Germanic language. Ansuz meant the breath or mouth of an oak or ash. The Germanic Saxon’s later split the Ansuz rune into three sounds: “o” (mouth), “ac” (oak) and “ae” (ash). “Korn” originated in the Eleusinian mystery schools of Ancient Greece. Kore, also known as Persephone, was the daughter of Demeter (Goddess of Agriculture) and Zeus (Sky God). Since oak trees were sacred to both, acorns represent the seed and the fruit of the mighty oak “gods”. In Norse legend, Thor (Sky God of Lightening) sought shelter under a large oak during a thunderstorm. This in turn led to the tradition of placing acorns on windowsills to prevent a house from being hit by lightning. Acorns were commonly worn as amulets of protection, good luck and abundance.” –from https://treespiritwisdom.com/tree-spirit-wisdom/nut-seed-trees-coins/acorn/
I am reading again that Historians believe the word “druid” comes from the Celtic word for acorn.
God gave me some pretty good sleep last night, but woke me with a single vision that blew my mind.
It was of a sunny clear day and right before me was a tombstone shaped like this one and seemingly off kilter. Written very large, and diagonal, on it was the word: Enter
The second death is more than you can fathom. it is one for the living.
Oh boy, magic.
I am once again falling in love with my book of mystery. This is going to be like phase two.
