Homemade Winter Suet for Birds

These are the two suet patties I made this evening
Homemade Winter Suet for Birds
 A couple of weeks a go I started saving my leftover grease anytime we fried meat.  When the meat was finished cooking, I'd strain the meat and place the drippings in a glass mason jar.  I did this because I knew I could make some great homemade suet for the Downy Woodpeckers and other birds on the property.  All I had to do was get about a cups worth of grease/meat drippings and add a couple cups of bird seed.  Mix them together and place in saved backings from store bought suet.

Homemade Winter Suet Recipe:

1 Cup Grease/Meat Drippings (beef and bacon work the best)
2 Cups of Mixed Birdseed
2 Leftover Suet backings (or other small, square container)

Save your grease drippings till you have approx. 1 cup of solid grease.  Place mason jar of drippings in microwave for 20 seconds and pour in a bowl.  Add 2 cups of birdseed mix and stir well.  Place mixture in leftover suet packages that you previously bought and used from the store or find a small , rectangular plastic container.  Place suet in freezer or garage if it is winter out.  Keep it someplace cold so the grease doesn't melt.  Use when solid.

Birds love the high energy they get from the meat drippings.  In the winter time it can sometimes be hard to find worms and other insects that provide them with nutrition.  This is an excellent alternative for them and a great way for you to recycle and reuse your leftover suet backings from the store and your grease drippings!

Making Contact with your Guardian Angel & Spirit Guides

I wanted to write this a bit earlier but I unexpectedly came down with a nasty flu bug that seems to still be taking a bit of a tole on my body.  Hopefully I'll be back up and running on full once more. :-)  Losing 10 pounds in 3 days from being sick to your stomach can be a bit scary for someone like me with my past.  Now I call upon my spiritual guides and guardian angels because this is a time of need.

I am about to share with you sacred and ancient information passed down to me by my ancestral memories and experiences.  I've been given the 'ok' to pass the information from my guides to anyone who has open eyes and ears.

We all have guides around us.  Some come in form of angelic looking beings with giant wings, others come to us as a protector or spirit animal.  They come in many shapes and forms and all are here to guide and protect us, to help us when in need and to assist us when called upon.  Regardless of faith or religion, we are all highly spiritual beings, so are our angels and guides.  Almost all religions around the world recognize that we have some form of guardian angel, spirit guide or animal totem. 

Your guardian angel can help you when you feel depressed, lonely or in need of emotional support.  They can also help inspire you at difficult times.  Sometimes you may receive new insight from their support and comfort.  Nothing is too large or considered trivial when asking their advice for guidance.

Let's begin the teachings to contact and feel your guardian angel and spirit guide:

For starters you must become receptive in many ways.  This first way is to rid yourself of any negative thoughts.  This isn't hard to do and I'm not asking you to do it all day, everyday.  Though you would be amazed how you would feel if you never focused or gave thought to those. If you feel surrounded by negative emotions like fear, hurt or anger, you must let go of these before we can continue.  These emotions create a barrier around your aura like a hard shell.  It then becomes harder for you to break free or allow the love and energy from others to come in.  It is also difficult for your guardian angel to reach you if you have such walls up.  Surround yourself in thoughts of things or memories that make you happy and bring a smile to your face.  Often if we think of our childhood or reams we had of flying, this will help.  Sometimes larger measures are taken, like a meditation shower or bath, a soul/spirit cleansing ritual or something else along those lines.  I highly recommend doing a personal 'Sacred Space' cleansing of your self and aura before you start.

When you have become receptive as I described above you can move on to the next step in contacting your angel or spirit guide.  You must have a peaceful and personal place environment.  This can be a small place in your home, a corner of a room, near a window, in your bed room or for some, the bathroom it's self.  You need to create a space where you are comfortable, where it is extremely quiet.  Many of my Witch friends have already have an alter set up that provides them with a spot for meditation and magical work.  This is a perfect spot for contacting your angels and spirit guides.  Adorn your peaceful area is with candles, flowers, seasonal items, lovely pictures and items that resinate with you and your spirituality.  The items should help you create a positive mood.  No items that have negative residual energy or bring you negative memories should be used in this area.  If your home and property provide complete silence then I suggest you don't use music.  However, there are many that hear the delightful noise of neighbors, machinery in the background or traffic in the distance.  You want to separate yourself for the time being from those distractions and unnatural noises.  Place some music around you that is based around nature.  Find some beautiful waves splashing, frogs croaking or some native drumming is always good!  It must be light, nothing that will bring distractions or that you would want to start singing along to. The music is simply to get your spirit ready and relaxed.

Now we have created your mood and your sacred space.  Once both of these are done, you will already begin to feel more approachable by your guides.  You'll also begin to feel your energy shifting in a more positive direction.  You may even begin to feel physically lighter.

The next step is to ready yourself inside you space.  Sit in your sacred space, do not stand.   You may sit directly on the floor or use a chair.  If you use a chair be sure to sit up straight with your feet and legs uncrossed, unless this is a large comfortable chair and you want to sit in a Yoga or 'Indian' style.  Now it is time to close your eyes and keep them closed until the later time.  Place your palms upwards and relax your arms on your legs.  You will begin to breathe in through your nose, taking deep breaths and exhaling out your mouth.  Silently count to three when inhaling and exhale for a count of six.  Continue to do this at least for 2 to 5 minutes.  You must feel your body begin to relax.  As you are doing this, silently in your mind count your blessings and make a gratitude list.  Think good thoughts about those you love and share your life with.  In your mind think of things that make you grateful to be alive.  While you continue to breathe in and exhale make sure your thoughts stay in the mode of joy, love and gratitude.  If the beach makes you happy, then focus on yourself being their in your mind, even if you have never gone their in the physical.  These thoughts you are thinking at this time should be pure and allow you to draw your angel near with the love that your aura is beginning to shine.

The next step is to continue to breathe as you were above but this time we are going to do a visualization with your breathing.  When you inhale through your nose (for a count of three, minimal) imagine you are inhaling specs of gold that look like angel dust or fairy magic.  This delicate gold 'star dust' must be breathed in and absorbed into your soul.  As you continue to breathe, visualize this sparkly dust or energy particles beginning to swirl around your feet.  The more you relax and breathe the more the golden energy surrounds your aura.  Visualize the gold particles creating the sacred shape of an egg around your aura and body.  Continue to breath in the particles and allow a golden light to become one with them.  As you visualize and breathe, your egg and aura will begin to glow brighter and brighter until they are one in the same.  If you begin to feel a tingle throughout your body, this is normal and you are feeling your energy flow.  Some call this the ancient Chi or life force in us.  It is easier for your angelic guide to come to you when you can feel your golden aura and have achieved a peaceful state of mind.

Continue to sit in your sacred space with your golden aura surrounding you.  The little particles or dust like specs still swirling all about, never standing still, but creating this perfect egg shaped golden aura.  You are safe now.  Know you are safe, know you are loved. 

Aloud or in your mind , ask your guardian angel to step inside your aura and gently touch you.  Continue to breath and with your eyes still closed be open to any physical sensations, a touch on the face a brush of your skin, the hairs raised on the back of your neck.  You may smell a sweet fragrance of flowers or something else that is delightful.  You may feel warmth and your guide may place their wings around you.  Sometimes the first contact is small and my only be felt as air across your cheek.  You must trust that your angel has responded to you and is very close.  Continue to keep your eyes closed and your golden aura going.  Know your angel is inside your aura with you and mentally or aloud say "thank you".  Sometimes after we give thanks they feel acknowledged and make their presence know even more.  It may not always be a physical touch or smell, but usually that plays an important role.  Sometimes our guides come and we feel them as an emotion.  You may suddenly begin to cry for no reason, not that you are sad or mad or that anything is wrong.  Or, you may all of a sudden feel extremely happy while you are sitting there contacting your angel.  This is your validation, your guides way of showing you he or she is here when they are needed. 

Your guide has a name.  Not all names a pronounceable in our earthly tongue so often our guides will place a more human name with themselves.  Sometimes the name is rare and unique wile others offer a common and sometimes humorous name to make us smile.  This is the next step for you to take while your guide and you are in your golden aura.  Aloud or in your mind ask your guides name.  This first name that pops in your head is your guides name.  Do not second guess it, do not question it.  This is the name your guide has given him or herself.  You may now use this name in the future when contacting and addressing your guide.  In your mind or aloud  ask your guide with assistance in a part of your life or current situation that needs immediate attention.  Know your guide will play a vital role in the outcome and set your worries aside for it is out of your hands now.

Now that you know your guides name and have made first contact, we can move on to the final step.  It is time to physically see your guide.  Your guide will choose how you will see him or her.  Sometimes they show us in full, a beautiful body with large wings and a grand aura surrounding them.  Sometimes they come as a native chief in full headdress or an ancestor we once knew.  Other times we may only see a glimpse of their energy, a shadow or movement.  Sometimes it looks like a ripple in the room or the bend of energy and we know something is there.  Do not be discouraged if you only see a small bit of your guide.  This is the first time and you may need to work on your ridding yourself of negative energies before you are capable of fully seeing. 

The final step is to once again thank your guide.  Aloud and in your mind say "Thank you".  Let your angel or guide know you are going to open your eyes and you would like to see them.  Once again, take a deep breath and open your eyes.  As I mentioned above you may see only a small shadow or spec of different color move quickly away.  You may see tiny little white or golden particles in front of your eyes or you may see your guide standing or sitting with you.  It all depends on how open you are and the amount of negative that may still linger in the room or sacred space you have created.  You must follow all the steps to achieve the desired contact with your guardian angel or spirit guide.  Thank your guide once more and continue to visualize your aura as golden and bright.  You may allow other colors to enter but know your angel is attracted to you most when your aura is mighty and ready to communicate.

Thank you for taking the time to listen and take in these words.  I do not take this post lightly and I contemplated on even writing it for the publics view.  I am only sharing the ancestral and angelic information that has been shared with me from my guides and memories.  I ask that you love all life as one unit and hold this world sacred and ancient teachings sacred.

Weekly LUNAR Reading and MAGICAL Attributes: January 21st-28th, 2010

Moon Phase:

Waxing Crescent

Moon's Place
(moon enters Taurus on Friday, Jan. 22nd then Gemini on the 25th)

Lunar Reading:
Creative ideas seem to be coming to you in abundance.  So many ideas, so little time.  Embrace the change that these creative ideas could potentially bring.  These thoughts aren't jut fleeting ideas with no meaning.  You've been asking for answers and some assistance with your prayers, and now you have it right in front of you.  
Following your hearts desires often leads to more positive energy being shaped in your life.  Embrace the little things that bring you joy and before you know it, every little thing will seem to have some positive meaning and aspect to it. 
Sometimes change is necessary to accompany our desires.  You are a free spirit and no one can tell you any different.  Follow your path, not one that was created by someone else.  You are urged to march to the beat of your own drum.  This is where you will find your freedom, your peace and the hope you  have been seeking.  Yes, they have always been there, right in front of your very eyes.  You just needed a little help lifting the veil that seemed to be weighted down.
For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:
Now is a perfect time to draw things near.  Between the new and full moon, during this time of the waxing crescent, you are urged to focus on relationships, love and universal oneness.

Every Witch or Goddess should have either a Magical Wand or Dagger that is used in casting a safe circle of protection.  Before any form of magical work or meditation is done, you should place yourself in an invisible energy bubble or sacred pyramid. this is easily done by calling upon and honoring the four sacred directions and their elemental properties.  If you don't already have some sort of circle casting object, I highly suggest you get one.  Make sure it is new or has been in your possession a majority of its life. Other wise the object may be carrying the residual energy of the past user.

This week cast a circle around your self with your wand or other casting device.  When you do this, close your eyes and visualize purple and white particles making a shield of protection.  Call upon the elements and directions.  Ask your ancestral energy to assist in your magical doings.  You are about to meet one of your guardian angels or spirit guides this week and he/she will thank you for the protection and purity you are providing from negative thoughts.

Your Mission for this week:
Your Spirit Guide, Arc Angel or Ancestral energy (how ever you wish to see it or call it) is trying to make full contact with you.  As we evolve, so does our soul and we are dawning a new age of awareness.  Your angelic guide wants to show themselves to you.  Are you open and ready for such a spiritual event?  You must be ready and become receptive to all the possibilities.
Your angel/spirit guide can help you when you feel down and depressed.  When you feel in need of emotional support or lonely, they will be there, ready to lean a shoulder to cry on or a wing to embrace you.  There is never anything too small or trivial to request their guidance or advice on.
If you think you are ready for such an event, then I will show you and explain in full detail how to see your guide and feel your guides touch.  My guides have always let themselves be known, but many have turned a blind eye or suppressed what they once knew.  Think back to your days of a child.  Most of us were frequently visit by our guides as small children.
I promise to share with you in full detail how to discover your spirit guide/guardian angel.  This is not something I take lightly and a few years ago I don't think I would have even considered sharing this over the internet.  Sometimes in life we get a sensation we can not ignore and this is my sensation now, to share this information.  Please stay tuned to this blog for today or tomorrow (when ever I finish putting into text and posting it) I will post how to experience such a wonderful and much needed energy.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

Some Days ~ a poem

"Some Days"

Some days are easier than others.
Some days are not.
Some days seem dark.
While others seem bright.
Some days I miss you more than others.
Some days I forget your gone.
Some days I feel your spirit near.
While other days I feel nothing at all.
Some days are hard to see the light.
Some days I know everything is alright.
Some days are filled with love.
While other days seem hopeless.
Some days I know you can hear me.
Some days I worry you can't.
Some days all I want are your hugs.
While other days I sweep my emotions under the rug.
Some days it is hard to cope.
Some days I still seek your advice.
Some days I simply pray to you.

Natural Home Fragrance

Your home is a sacred place of dwelling.  Many of us are allergic and highly sensitive to home fragrances bought in a store or produced by large companies.  Most contain harmful chemicals, including formaldehyde and acetone.  Both known to have major side effects on the human body, both physically and neurologically.

Our home usually smells of some sort of freshly baked goods.  If I don't have a loaf or two of bread in the oven, I usually have other baked goods such a pizza, cookies, brownies, etc.  On days I don't have anything going I still like the smell of something nice.  Usually I will place several items in a pan and place them on stove.  Depending on the season or moon phase, I'll use different ingredients.  I then simmer them all day and allow the vapors to spread the aroma around the house. 

Below are some of my personal recipes I use for Natural Home Fragrance.

Apple Pie:
I sliced apple
2 cinnamon sticks or 1 tsp powder
10-12 whole cloves or 1/2 tsp powder
**place in two cups of water, bring to boil.  Once boiling reduce to simmer.  You may need to add water again later if the level gets to low.  You can use this for two days then toss in your compost.

Fall Delight:
Left over orange peels or 1/2 an orange
2 cinnamon sticks
**place in two cups of water, bring to boil.  Once boiling reduce to simmer.  You may need to add water again later if the level gets to low.  You can use this for two days then toss in your compost.

Autumn Nights:
1 can pumpkin puree or 1/2 a small pie pumpkin
12 whole cloves or 1/2 tsp powder
1/8 tsp ginger
*place in three cups of water, bring to boil.  Once boiling reduce to simmer.  You may need to add water again later if the level gets to low.  You can use this for two days then toss in your compost.

Weekly LUNAR Reading and MAGICAL Attributes: January 13th-20th, 2010

Moon Phase:

Waning Crescent

Moon's Place
(moon enters Aquarius on Friday, Jan. 15th then Pisces on the 18th)

Lunar Reading:
On the 15th day of January, we shall have a New Moon.  The annual full Solar Eclipse shall take place as well on this day.  However the eclipse will only be viewable in the Asia and Africa areas of the world.  The new moon is a time to start new adventures, ideas, creative thoughts, etc.  It can also be a time to draw romance to ones self and life.  Think new beginnings in all areas of your life that need a little relief, a new start or even a fresh outlook.

This week will pose some issues in your personal life.  Your political opinions and choices may come into question.  Not only may you be questioned by others, but you may give new thought to your own political opinions.  Know that it is okay to change your mind on issues, matters and circumstances.  Your personal freedoms may be in jeopardy, be it at home, work, school or even your everyday life.  Be aware of the changes taking place around you.  If you don't like it, change it.  Provide a fresh outlook or consider new options.  If you feel your personal freedoms of expression are being criticized or taken away, then take a stand.  Just remember that there is no violent solution to any situation.  Use your powers of intellect and creation.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:
Your love is needed around the globe.  Now is the perfect time to practice magical abundance for love & gratitude.  No more woe is me or doomed day chants.  We must reaffirm and manifest a positive outlook and take on life and how we are living.  John Lennon & Yoko said it best with "War is Over... if you want it" or "Love is all you need!"  Very powerful words, becasue the reality is that we are the change and the means of creating what we want or don't want.  This applies to more than just war.  We must quit giving the negative so much energy and refocus our abilities to loving this amazing planet and all her magnificent inhabitants.

The new moon is providing you an opportunity to raise awareness on a global scale.  We have the ability to love unconditionally and share that with others.  All spell work down now should be in favor of love and gratitude.  Spells that thank the water, the sun and moon.  Spells that honor the sacred elements and the once honored ways of our ancestors.

Rainbow Tree's Unconditional Love Spell
(repeat thrice daily)
Mother Earth, Father Sky, show me the reasons why.
To love all existence and never blind my third eye.
Unconditional love, I shall feel it abound.
All the creatures from the sky and those living in the ground.
Brothers and sisters off all shall unite.
Our hearts will then begin the new flight.
A new world we all create.
Only love exists, with no room for hate.
I vow to honor this love till I die.
Mother Earth, Father Sky, thank you for showing me the reasons why.

Your Mission for this week:

Practice tolerance for others opinions, personal expressions and faith.  We all must learn to live here together as one unit.  Yes, a giant family that knows the abundance that life, love and freedom offer us. Your mission this week is to be a "Considerate Thinker".  Think outside the box of a situation or action.  Consider the ripple effect of every microscopic thing you say or do.  Did you throw a recyclable can in the trash?  What is the ripple effect?  Were you in a hurry so you didn't hold the door for the mom with her three children?  What is the ripple effect?  Was your waitress very friendly and provided you with good service?  Would you tip her extra and provide compliments?  If you did, what would be the ripple effect?  What would be the difference in ripple effects if you planted 5 trees or cut five trees down?  Got you thinking about actions in all directions?  Everything you do has an effect on yourself, others and the environment.  Go forth this week and be considerate with all you do.  Show gratitude.  You are encouraged show gratitude, especially to those you encounter in need of a pick me up.  If someone is being extremely negative, explain to them your mission for this week.  Don't worry about their reaction as this is part of your personal freedom of expressions.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

Calling of the Ancestors

Generations of free thinkers.
Living life from their hearts.
No limits for the minds eye.
Memories of flying and past lives.

Nothing is taken for granted.
Sacred sounds they do hear.
Mother Earth they tend.
A web of dreams they weave.

Voices of nature listened to.
Songs they sing ring true.
Imagination is their key.
It's the name of their spirituality.

In our darkness they stand by us.
Love and guidance they offer.
A lighted path shows us the way.
Many of us don't see and we drift away.

They bring a message for all.
Hope and light in our darkness.
Connection to all must be found.
Unconditional love must be felt abound.

Oracle Message from the Fairy Realm "Dreams Coming True"

Original Drawing ~ Image copyright © Rainbow Tree (aka Kandice Thompson)

From time to time the Fairy folk feel a need to relay a message for those that are open to listening. When needed or as requested from the fairy realm, an oracle reading with the Fairies is done to receive their guidance and thoughts. I do this for myself and anyone else who wants to listen or read. Their messages always resonates with many around the globe.

The message received this reading is:
"Dreams Coming True"

It is easy as humans to allow fear or negative thoughts to overwhelm our state of consciousness.  We tend to sabotage our own dreams and manifestations by allowing our self to worry or feel not worthy.  Many times we let the opinions of others crush our dreams.  Don't let anyone ever tell you that you are being unrealistic, dreaming too much or have to high of expectations.  
The desires of your heart are beginning to manifest into reality.  The fairies ask you to keep your faith and only expect a positive outcome.  If you expect negative, then negative will flow to you, as you are expecting it! 
The life you have been dreaming of is ready to become a reality and it's in the very starts.  Your prays, affirmations and positive thoughts are bringing you closer to this grand manifestation.  At this current moment you are only seeing glimmers of what could be.  Drop the fears, the opinions of others and your worries.  Let go of what you resist so it doesn't persist.   Your transition can be successful with your continued faith.  Ask the fairies to release your fears that could cause you to sabotage your manifestation abilities.  Show gratitude in your prayers, be thankful as if everything already is.  Know that you deserve this new abundance and it will bring much joy to your life.

The fairies feel you should write or verbally aloud repeat the following affirmation daily:
I know that wonderful people and situations now surround me.  My heart is filed with gratitude.

Weekly LUNAR Reading and MAGICAL Attributes: January 6th-13th 2010

Moon Phase:

Waning Gibbous

Moon's Place
(moon enters Scorpio on Friday, Jan. 8th then Sagittarius on Sunday afternoon)

Lunar Reading:

Your hopes are being given new light with the beginning of the new calendar year.  We must learn how to let go of the issues we faced or demons we battled.  Things can only get better, if you choose to see it that way.  The law of attraction and power of manifestation will play a vital role this year and the rest of your life.  What you resist will continue to persist.  Let go of the troubles and problems that seemed to once consume you.  This is now who you are.  Allow yourself to be free of those chains.  Release it to what ever entity or force you believe in.  Visualize the issues in a bag or on a plate and hand them over to God/Goddess.  Ask the fairies to carry them away or a river to watch them down stream.  Know when you let go of them that these issues or matters are gone forever, no longer your concern.  They require no thought, as thought would only bring them back.  Remeber, you have released them and God or the Universe has already taken care of it.  

This week and month may pose for some communication issues.  With both Mercury and Mars in retrograde, common miss-communications can happen easily.  Often we experience dropped phone calls, internet connection issues, malfunctioning computers and other devices that allow us to psychically connect to each other for communication purposes.  Sometimes this is the universe pushing you to physically see the person or attempt to to connect with them on some level telepathically.  After all, a new era is coming and we have to start opening up somewhere.  Why not start with the third eye and our spiritual and elemental instincts.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

It is highly suggested that you take the time to cleanse all of your crystals and magical working devices in water.  Bless them with the unconditional love the universe offers.  Visualize particles of dust or energy floating down from the heavens and absorbing into your magical devices.  Allow the energy to be absorbed into your body and soul as well.  Be sure to search my archives for different cleansing and renewal rituals and meditations.  One of my favorites is the body and bath cleansing meditation.

Any magic done now for such things as court cases and ridding ones self of a negative habit or issue is in perfect timing.  Things will flow in your favor at this time with the current moon phase and astrological positioning.  Rest easy and know the universe is playing out the best scenario for you, even if it may not feel like it at the moment.

Your Mission for this week:

Show patience with others and yourself.  Give close ones the benefit of the doubt.  Most likely they are just trying to help you, even if you don't agree with their way of showing it.  Respect your elders, no matter the situation.  They have still lived here more years physically than you and they are closer to their transition than you are.  Keep in mind that those who are many years older than you have experinced different aspects of life and understand and have lived through many eras and changes.  Even if you are the adult or grandmother yourself, head the advice of your elders, regardless of circumstances or personal differences.  No, they don't always know best, but they have more life experience in years than you and that deserves a little bit of respect.

I have decided to give you a physical and emotional mission, should you choose to except it:
Choose one person in your life that you deeply care about and are extremely thankful for.  Make sure this person is of the same sex and not your life partner or spouse.  If you are a woman, then pick another woman that you are thankful is a part of your life.  Write a physical letter to them, not an email or a short text message.  Get out your pen and paper and let them know from the heart why you are grateful they are part of your life.  Keep the letter purely positive, maybe even make a gratitude list of why you care about them.  It's not about what they've done for you, it's simply why you are thankful for that particular person.  Why wouldn't life be the same without them?  Share your heart and allow that special someone to know why they mean so very much to you and play an important role in your life.
