Owl by Dennis Sheehy

Dear Readers,  I wish to introduce two dear friends in the next two posts. The first is the photographer Dennis Sheehy whose beautiful silhouette of owl and branches appears above.  He takes one-der-ful photographs, illustrating a dedication to catching those moments that sparkle, that illuminate, that open a crack to see behind the veil of ordinary human perception.  To this end, he spends hours walking, looking, noticing and skillfully recording those moments of illumination. Nature photography is a kind of meditation and a kind of channeling, making visible what ordinarily goes unnoticed.

Usually I illustrate my posts with photos I take myself… a quick shot of a moment I observe in the ever changing beauty around my country home,  but I have thought for a while of including some of Dennis’ photos as a way of sharing his meditation and his talent with my friends on-line. He was once very involved in making gnome-homes, so clearly has a feeling for the aesthetics of faerie and the elementals  (see also http://www.gnome-home.com ).  Dennis is also a very dear brother to me.  I recognized him as that immediately, I’m happy to say, and it turns out, he is the twin flame of one of my sisters.   I first met him in the 1990s,  when I arranged for him to teach a gnome home workshop at the elementary school in Freeport, Maine where I was teaching art.

I chose the owl for the first post, from all of his photos, because Owl is a personal symbol of wisdom and sight in the darkness, and a messenger between worlds, which we as channels are also.  I do not resonate with the superstition of the owl as a harbinger of death, this is based in fear of change and transition.   The Greek goddess Athena, renowned for wisdom,  has an owl as her symbol. I have had an owl totem and spirit friend for at least thirty years.

When my son was seven, we went to a Native American tipi set-up demonstration, with a subsequent shield-making activity within the tipi.  The Penobscot man lead us on a journey to find our spirit animal, and draw it on the shield with crayons.  I still have the cardboard circle with the white and silver owl in flight.  This is the first experience I had with clairvoyance, as I realized how easy it was for me to follow a guided visualization, and saw/felt the owl fly to me so vividly.  I was in college at that period studying art education and later used guided imagery a lot with my students, who, as children, were closer to their non-physical senses than most adults.

My name Jennifer comes from the English name  Guinevere;  the original Cornish form was  Gwenwhyfar, meaning white shadow, white phantom, white fairy, or fair one).  The white owl on my shield feels like a phantom or spirit owl, not a physical one.  My parents didn’t know the etymology back in 1951 (they didn’t have baby -naming books then)… I discovered it later in high school when I became enamored of the Arthurian legends.  Pondering on why I have the name I do, another level of meaning came clear in meditation a year or so ago.  Jenn ( Gen– root word for race, kind, or simply,  the people) and  fer (or, pher- from the Greek to love, as in Christopher = lover of Christ),  which all adds up to Lover of the People, or All of Us! YAY!  I’m so grateful for my parents’ intuitive wisdom!!

Multi-dimensional Blessings to all of you on this magical Hallow’s Eve, when the veils are blown away and we can all travel between worlds like Owl, and sense/see/hear/feel the Other Side.  No fears– All is well– Always.   Love to All the People,  Gwenwhyfar

Golden Vibrations

Golden Vibrations

Where has October flown?! Time is truly rolling and rushing and escaping all its boundaries!!

I have been very absorbed in a whirlwind of deaths and funerals,  six in two weeks…  Funerals take huge amounts of energy, and I have to sleep alot.  This aspect of ministry feels much like bridging between worlds, once exclusive territory of the shaman, later taken over by the priests. As a Lightbearer, I am feeling my way to an authentic honoring of the person, and of the passage, without supporting the old structures of fear and control.  Letting go of old beliefs in order to really feel the Love that I AM entails meeting all my fears about death, especially sub-conscious ones. To that end,  in the last few months, I have had an interesting series of experiences communicating with souls who have crossed over. 

 One day I received a big surprise when I sat to listen and record a message for this blog.  I usually connect right off with one of my teachers, guides or one of the Ascended Masters, or, another on my  “approved” list.  But here was a vibration I didn’t recognize… it spooked me a bit, and I immediately checked in with my higher self  (who I call Amami.) I also wasn’t sure I wanted to be a messenger for “just anyone” (ego:-)… I loved the answer I received, that we are always protected and there is nothing to fear – ever!  And, to become the universal citizens we hope for, we must be open to surprising encounters.  After Amami’s message, feeling reassured, I went back to the one who had begun the conversation, to see who and what their purpose might be.  Here is my “spooky” channeling experience:

Good morning,  I seek to address you on the topic of … learning …(connection fuzzy, distorted)

(What? Who is this?) 

I am not known to you.

(What?!  STOP.)  Let’s begin again … re-center …check in with my Higher Self:

Blessings.  This is Amami.  You are always protected and there is no reason for fear.   (Sigh…okay…<3)

Only those experiences which you would choose for your own soul’s growth would ever occur in your perception, anyway.  Remember, you are the creator.  You have drawn to you that which reflects you.  If there is something fearful in front of you – then there is fear within you.  When there is no more fear within you – there will no longer be a fearful expression in front of you.

This world you inhabit is a playground for fear and you have played here for a very long time.  You are almost done with it now.  You are recognizing the higher vibrations in which you are choosing to dwell.  By wrapping yourself in the soothing golden vibrations of the Love that emanates within you and around you – you will perceive that fear thoughts and expressions, whether emotional or physical, dissipate like fog in the sun.

There is no need to fear any who might approach you to communicate with you, or another through you.  Bless their energies, keep your own heart flowing in a state of love, and you need never fear another, whether within or without.  Many seek confirmation of the existence of life from the galaxy, perhaps through an encounter with another life-form of a higher vibration.  Shutting down in fear would not assist this desire, you see?  You are all a bit timid yet in this exploration of conscious contact.  Do not retreat in fear, but instead – strengthen yourself in alignment with Source, feel the love connecting you in all directions, and explore freely what/who may approach you to be seen or heard.

Every aspect of consciousness has something to teach you.  It is all you anyway, in the vast sense of wholeness.  Nothing exists that is not worthy of your loving embrace.  Do not be shy, Dear.  Hide not behind my skirts.  Here let me take you by the hand and introduce you… to Your Self.   ❤  Love, Amami

(Okay.  Let us continue then.) 

I am a friend of a friend of a friend.  I would not harm you. I saw your light shining and came to warm myself at your fire.  It is known that you have offered yourself as a messenger, and I sought such a one to convey my message. You would not seek to open and approve each letter, if you were a postman,  before you would deliver it, would you? (No.)  Well then.  Will you take my message?

(Yes and welcome, today, to my heart of friendship.)  Thank you.   (Well, here goes…)

I am superbly [?] situated in your presence to convey the distortions seen with respect to a friend of ours, [name deleted].  He is dearly loved by you, as a brother, no?  (Yes.)  Well, I request that you approach him by any means of communication and offer him this message.

“You are not alone.  You are loved and cherished by the Heart of the One. Thank you for all you have brought to your human expression. You have contributed greatly to joy in all dimensions.  Your soul shines brightly, warming all of us.

I wish to be forgiven of past mistakes and the ways in which I failed to protect you while on Earth – you were in my care for a time.  I failed to establish the safety which you so deserved and desired.   I realize now that the experiences which shaped your life were willingly undergone for the greater opening to compassion within your human expression.  My intention was to protect you, but I was not able to maintain my clarity within the density.  Now, I can see and wish to convey my sorrow, so that you can know that while I understand the value now of all experiences – delightful or difficult –  that I do acknowledge my failing with respect to you, and wish to be known to you again as one who holds you in great regard, esteem and enormous love,  (your grandfather).”

That’s all for now, and great thanks to you for your willingness to scribe. I leave you with my blessing.

So– you see? there was no reason for fear after all! :-)<333….  I felt a little sheepish, and later conveyed the message to my friend, which has had the lovely consequence of re-igniting communication after a pause of over a year! 

So many blessings…..  In Love,  Jennifer
