A Dogs Thanksgiving Story

My old bullmastiff pal, Harvey, was a great talker. From a very early age we worked on building animal and human telepathy. Each of our three dogs at the time were excellent at mind communication, but since Harvey didn't know any better -- having started much younger than the other two -- he became a conversational pro! Months before he crossed the Rainbow Bridge we began a blog together. Before he passed I promised him I would continue to share the character of his words. The following light-hearted story is told from the perspective of a dog.

A terrible thing happened for dogs one Thanksgiving. It can certainly be a terrible thing when your people learn something new -- if you happen to be a dog. My people were being visited by the extended pack. Tree was talking with another people and I overheard the whole aweful story.

There once was a dog who went with her people to visit other people who happened to have a dog too. The dog in this story was very happy to visit the other dog. They ran together and had great fun with toys, but the other dog was much younger and stronger than the dog in our story so it sometimes made our dog very sad; She kept trying though, in the hopes that one day she'd be just as good at something as the younger dog.

Then one night, during the visit, a new thing happened. While getting ready for bed the other people patted the top of the bed -- and the other dog jumped up! Our dog in the story had never seen anything such as this before. Her people always slept alone way up on the bed. The dog in our story was never allowed on the bed. She wanted oh so very much to be just like the other dog! She ventured a little whine and offered her best cute puppy face to her people. To the surprise of the dog in our story her people patted the top of the bed too; She too was going to be allowed on the bed! SHE would finally be just like the other dog in our story! Her bottom side began to wiggle before her feet could even move. The dog in our story was so terribly excited as she jumped onto the bed! She wagged and wagged her tail in joy. She rolled on her side and wagged her tail in happiness. The dog in our story wagged and wagged her happy tail hard.

Suddenly the dog in our story let out a huge YELP! She jumped down to the safety of the floor. She tried to be happy again. She tried to wag her tail, but each effort made her yelp again in pain. Then the dog in our story tried NOT to wag her tail, but it wouldn't hold still, so she cried. Her people jumped out of the bed and rushed her to a doctor. Being very worried, they told the doctor what had happened. The doctor gave the dog in our story medicine to make her feel better and heal. In time, the dog in our story would be just fine. The the doctor then gave a good natured laugh. He explained that he'd never seen a dog get so happy that it wagged too hard; The dog in our story had sprained her tail!

My own people learned that too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Thanksgiving turkey makes my tail wag because it's so good, but I won't wag too hard unless maybe they remember I'm thankful for leftovers!

Buffalo and Calf Holey Stone

 This new large Spiritkeepers Stone comes with an upright brass display stand for one of a kind home decor. It features a unique landscape painting of a mother Native American Bison with morning mist steaming from her mouth while her baby buffalo calf stands by her side. It was inspired by the shapes found within the natural surface, formed by fossils & fossil imprints, so it has a great deal of texture. In some areas, especially the calf, the image seem 3-D! I painted it with washes of color and careful dry brushed layers of acrylic paint.

The type of stone is limestone, known to generate metaphysical energy, and shale created from ancient swamp silt in the Ohio Valley. The presence of fossils is said to increase creativity with the surrounding environment. Being naturally holed, this rock makes a perfect totem animal amulet.

A naturally holed stone, or holey stone, is also known as the Witches Amulet or Witches Dream Shield. It is the most powerful protection amulet for the witch because it IS the presence of the Goddess Herself. The opening in the stone is the Sacred Womb of the Earth. When strung with a red string or ribbon & placed over the bed it acts as a shield against bad dreams, much like the Native American dream catcher. A holey stone may also be used for Full Moon magic by gazing at the moon through the hole.

Buffalo and Calf Holey Stone Spiritkeepers #sk021
- 8 1/2" long
- 6 3/4" at tallest points
- 1/4" to nearly 1" thickness varies
- included brass stand is 3 1/2" high w/ rubber covered feet to protect surfaces

Each Spiritkeepers™ is unique, individually numbered & signed with the Spiritkeepers™ sigil logo; no fillers or cutting ever used on stones. The reverse side shows the sigil, number & natural color of the stone. This piece is intended for indoor or protected outdoor display. Coated with durable clear varathane varnish, so the surface is water washable with cold water and care.

Egyptian God Thoth

The ancient Egyptian God Thoth (or Toth) was thought to be a self-begotten 'One' of his own making, and held many important attributes. It was believed that the gods would not exist without the words of Thoth, as he was the scribe of the gods and the Underworld, thus his power was nearly unlimited. Being the creator of writing he was seen as the author of all works of science, religion, magic, philosophy, and was the master of all forms of law. Thoth was a record keeper for the Underworld, wise counselor, and persuader to both humans and gods.

Usually depicted as a man with the head of an ibis, or simply the head of the bird, he was sometimes depicted as a baboon holding a crescent shaped moon because it was Thoth who directed the motions of heavenly bodies; the curve of the ibis' beak is similar to a crescent moon and baboons were observed as intelligent nocturnal creatures. This deity was associated with the moon due to its significant importance in early astrology, astronomy, and many of Egyptian society's important events were governed by the cycles of the moon. Perhaps Thoth, like the moon in the dark of night, provided illumination in the darkness of ignorance. The moon itself eventually became associated with another god and Thoth was more often associated with wisdom and writing, thus becoming the patron of scribes (writers). However, Thoths connection to the moon sustained in that magic, measurement, regulation of events, and of time itself remained associated with this most important of Egyptian deities.

Spiritkeepers™ Stone #sk056 shown above.

The wearing or carrying of an image of this ancient animal deity certainly could call upon totem animal like aspects to gain assistance from a "Higher Power" for a wide variety of us simple humans living today. Thoth may be called upon by modern Pagans, Wiccans, and witches for assistance in writing ones own spells or rituals, especially having to do with moon magick. An author or poet of any faith may find inspiration in an image of Thoth as a simple good luck charm. Through meditation upon His image, those having legal difficulties, or social issues, may find helpful counsel from Thoth in discovering how to persuade an opponent to see things your way... if you stand in a place of truth. Modern astrologists and astronomers could also gain important insight through meditating upon an image of Thoth. Those working in the fields of personal organiser, construction, mathematics, or any field of the sciences could improve skills with the help of this god.

About Anubis

  • Learn about Anubis and discover some ways this ancient deity can remain relevant in modern life through symbol and analogy. Ancient Egyptian text states that Anubis silently walked through the shadows of life and death, lurking in the dark places. It was he who deemed the deceased worthy, or not, to cross into rebirth; resurrection, enter a heavenly place. Anubis was the guardian of the dead, who greeted the souls in the Underworld, protecting them on their journey. He was watchful by day as well as by night.

Anubis is the Greek name for the jackal-headed God of the Dead. In ancient Egyptian mythology his hieroglyphic name is more accurately spelled Anpu (also Anupu, Anbu, Wip, Ienpw, Inepu, Yinepu, Inpu, or Inpw). He's nearly always depicted as a man with the black or very dark blue head of a jackal. Sometimes Anubis is depicted in the full form of the jackal animal, especially in hieroglyphic writing; However, at the Temple of Ramses II in Abydos he is shown in the rare form of total human, devoid of any animal characteristics. The color of Anubis' head likely served to visually link him with mummification because an embalmed body would turn black in color. Interestingly, black also represented fertility to the Egyptians, so the color choice probably serves to express Anubis' connection to rebirth in the afterlife. During the later Ptolemaic period, because their function as messenger of the gods were similar, Anubis came to be identified as the Greek god Hermes, becoming Hermanubis. Anubis was also sometimes associated with Sirius the Dog in heaven, and Cerberus in hell because even the Egyptians often thought of him as a dog, rather than specifically a jackal. Prayers to Anubis have been found carved on even the most ancient of tombs in Egypt, as He is one of the oldest deities of that great land.

No public procession in Egypt would be conducted without a figure of Anubis to march at the head, as the "go-between" of gods and men. The ancient Egyptians swore "by the Dog" when making oaths they would not break. When pet dogs died they were mummified and buried in temples dedicated to Anubis. The reason for Anubis' canine form likely stems from behavior the ancient Egyptians themselves observed; dogs and jackals often haunted the edges of the desert, especially near the cemeteries where the dead were buried. One of the reasons such care was taken to preserve the dead with sweet smelling herbs was the belief that Anubis would check each person with his keen canine nose, and only if they smelled pure would he allow them to enter the Kingdom of the Dead.

It was thought that Anubis invented the process of making mummies, so he became the overseer of embalming and mummification, as well as escorting the deceased through the procedures for entering the underworld as the 'Opener of the Ways'. Modern day persons working in paranormal or parapsychology fields may be able to seek the assistance of this ancient deity to help guide a ghost or unwanted spirit "into the Light". Awakening the dead was also one of his functions, as he was said to appear near a mummy to rouse the soul. It may also hold true that a bold modern necromancer or Medium might be able to gain assistance from Anubis in awakening the dead, allowing them to speak for a time. Anubis was the one who purified the body of Osiris through mummification after Osiris was murdered, so it is likely at this time that Anubis gave over the title of THE "God of the Dead" as an honor to Osiris. Anubis tests the knowledge and faith of the every day mans soul by placing the heart on the scales of justice for judgment. If the heart weighs heavier than the feather of Maat (or Ma'at, the goddess of truth) Anubis feeds the soul to the demon Ammit, who destroys it utterly. This is important symbolism because, though we may have done deeds in our lives that cause a "heavy-heartedness", we can make atonement before death to literally lighten up! If an individual soul carries too much remorse or regret it cannot cross into a heavenly realm; this is doctrine found in many religions active today.

Anubis was also a warrior god, opening the way to victory for pharaoh. Modern Pagans and witches may find it helpful to call upon this aspect of the God when seeking to win legal battles, clear a path through difficult situations, or even to overcome personal difficulties. In His many forms, and indeed through many types of media, the energy of Anubis remains an active part of modern life in many countries today.

Egyptian Goddess Taweret

A friend recently brought up the subject of fertility issues in the aspect of motherhood, not just abundance in life, so I was inspired to paint some unique Spiritkeepers™ Stones featuring the Egyptian Goddess Taweret, or The Great Female. Usually I pass my hand over a selection of rocks seeking the feel of energy for the image I want to create and will be lucky to find a single stone that's right for the job; in this case the blessing was a total of three pebbles volunteering to become representations of Taweret!

"Taweret (Taueret, Taurt, Toeris, Ipy, Ipet, Apet, Opet, Reret) - The Great Female - was the ancient Egyptian goddess of maternity and childbirth, protector of women and children. Like Bes, she was both a fierce demonic fighter as well as a popular deity who guarded the mother and her newborn child. She was depicted as a combination of a crocodile, a pregnant hippopotamus standing on her hind legs with large breasts and a lion. Unlike the composite demoness Ammut, her head and body were that of the hippo, her paws were that of the lion, and her back was the back of a crocodile." -- British Museum Glossary

Some of the many aspects associated with this Goddess are as follows...

  • guardian of women and children

  • a fierce protector

  • giver of fertility

  • pregnancy & motherhood

  • guide & protector through childbirth & labor

  • a good harvest

  • help with female sexuality

  • magical protection

  • ward off evil & fight demons or negative ghost spirits

  • a guide to souls of the dead and rebirth

  • a loving household deity

This Goddess is a lesser known feature character in the famous Egyptian Book of the Dead, but I've most often seen depictions of Her on everyday items a woman might use such as vanity mirrors and drinking cups. She was also an important symbol to be included on birthing blocks; wood or stone blocks women stood upon while in labor to ease delivery of the baby. Lucky babies and children in Egypt would have some sort of amulet or talisman featuring a depiction of Taweret near the bed or on worn jewelry because being comprised of both the hippopotamus and crocodile Taweret is fiercely protective of offspring! When depicted standing in profile, She's often holding the sa, which is a hieroglyph of protection similar to the ankh hieroglyph of life. She was an important deity in Her day, and I feel that Her energy if called upon today could offer comfort and magical assistance to a woman in need.

The Taweret Spiritkeepers™ Stones I painted are currently available in my Curio Castle store, but if you're opposed to becoming a member of a shopping site you are welcome to contact me for direct purchase (Contact link tab). Make sure to include a return email address when contacting me so that I can get back to you with ease. If you stop by the store, I do hope you'll enjoy browsing the Taweret and many other one of a kind stones I have to offer!

Painted Goddess Fossils & Pebbles

I've had a lot of fun painting several new stones featuring representations of the Goddess. The example shown at the left is stone #sk048, and the image includes a pencil to show how perfectly sized these new pebbles are for tucking into a pocket, pouch or medicine fetish bag. I've also painted some that are not fossil, and some of those come with a hand sewn leather storage pouch! As always, each is unique and only worked on when the energy is positive for best metaphysical flow. They make wonderful amulets for fertility, to increase creativity, or to rest upon a personal altar top as a symbol of feminine goddess energy; Some could even be wire wrapped as your own jewelry supply! Being tiny and affordable they also make great additions to a gift for a Pagan or Wiccan friend.

These stones, and others, can be purchased at my site, Realm of the Mystic Griffin, where there are special pages just for Spiritkeepers™ or my Curio Castle Shoppe. I'll be adding more varieties soon, such as realistic full nude Earth Mother Goddess and two very special miniature paintings of the historical Moon Goddess Inanna, so please do browse by again!

Witchy Totem Visit; American Toad

I've a new neighbor, and perhaps a familiar friend or "toadem" animal, as well. A large American Toad has taken up residence in the back yard my wee apartment has to offer. At first I'd only occasionally see a small toad on the back patio taking shelter from a hard rain, but one night there were two toads. The second was much larger than the first, and since its arrival the smaller toad is absent; likely having been consumed by the new comer. Now, nearly every evening the big toad comes right up to the screen to crawl safely under the door ledge. It's a calm confident creature and has allowed me to pet it; stroking between the eyes being careful to avoid the toxin glands on either side of the head.
I couldn't help myself to interfere with nature, so I began to catch some of the numerous moths that gather at the patio lamp in the hope of hand feeding my new pal. I've had a lot of experiences with wildlife, both exotic and indigenous, but had never spent time with a simple toad until now. It thrilled me when that quick tongue flash out to grab a moth from my finger tips! A relationship of a sort has developed, without a doubt, because when I make a deep hum noise Toadie walks out from under the door ledge to come right up to my hand. I still feed him (I think it's male because the colors are very dark) moths by hand but also chase crickets his way so his hunting skills remain sharp. In truth, I doubt my offered snacks could dull his hunting skills; a toad of this size is bold and opportunistic, taking whatever moves and fits in his mouth.

In Western lore the toad often gets a bad reputation as a wart giving ingredient for evil witches' to brew into curse potions, but the toad has a variety of meaning as a symbol. Because they often burrow into the ground and produce abundant numbers of offspring, the toad can be viewed as a symbol for the Earth Goddess. Just as the Earth can both give and take life in a flash, the swift deadly tongue of the toad also makes it a representation of death or transformation. Death itself is merely a transformative change, not always a bad thing, so Toadie making friends could signal a deep change in my life is approaching (though I've already had quite a few). For unstated reasons, toads are also thought to be signs of good luck and near future prosperity; Perhaps this is because of that opportunistic nature, patience, and quick hunting skills they have. Toads do NOT cause or give warts, but they do produce a toxin from the fat lumps on either side of the head. It's mostly harmless to humans unless it comes in contact with an open cut, is swallowed, or comes in contact with the eyes. It's a good idea to always wash your hands thoroughly after handling toad to be kind to yourself and wash before handling to be kind to the toad so you don't pass any bacteria or pollutants onto the toads thin skin. Perhaps persons with a Life Totem (not a Temporary Totem) of toad might seem a little "thin skinned", being easy to irritate others, and may even have a tendency to seem toxic during stressful or social situations? To understand what an animal means as a symbol we must look at the animal traits and how it lives, but also how it makes us feel when coming into our own lives individually.
Personally, I'm happy with my new pal Toadie. As long as I keep the dog from eating him, Toady is doing good work keeping the insect population in check and offering me childish chuckles from exploring his company. He's welcome at my door, and I'll be keeping my witches eye out for a stone to offer itself to be painted as a toad Spiritkeepers! ;)

Egyptian God of the Dead Anubis #060

Spiritkeepers Stone #060, SOLD
I love the variety of inspiration mysterious Egypt has to offer a modern crafts-person! With the head of a jackal (dog like animal), Anubis comes to life on this Spiritkeepers pebble in an original hand drawn hieroglyph like design, (See also About Anubis). It can take some time to find a stone with the right shape to create His long muzzle and towering ears, but as you can see this one is nearly canine shaped without a painted image! It can be carried as a pocket pal, an addition to a mo-jo medicine bag, used as a deity figure on a Pagan altar top, and even as a light paperweight to keep spell papers in place. The stone has been sealed with several layers of durable clear varathane, so it's safe for display on most all surfaces and should be able to withstand being housed with other stones or abrasive things an owner might collect.

Diverse Rockin Etsy Treasury of Pebble Art

"A pebble upon the sand inspires so many unique creations", states the opening of the latest Etsy Treasury to feature Spiritkeepers Stones. Username Wandering Whimsies has gathered a wonderfully creative selection of pebble rock related art, including my Spiritkeepers Emperor Penguin Set. The entire collection is very diverse, with everything from traditional painting, glass work, to an impressive textured quilt; beach stone buttons are very cool! Don't miss out -- because Treasuries are only temporary galleries -- and roll on over to see all of the images full sized and learn about these art forms. Lots of folks clicking each image in the Treasury could get us placed on Etsy's front page, and that would be very cool indeed, so help us out if you can. I had a good time browsing the new-to-me sellers and seeing their rock expressions. This Etsy Treasury will expire Friday April 10th @ 2:53, so you won't be able to view it directly any longer.

Wolf Holey Stone Pendant #045

With life-like details this bust of a red brown timber wolf on stone has been wire wrapped to make a most unique necklace pendant. With golden eyes, the fur was created by dry brushing many layers of paint over the texture of the natural stone. The white stone came from the Pacific Ocean; the Ring of Fire, and so the water of the sea created the natural hole. Wire is silver plated copper, and is strung on an adjustable satin cord, but will accept most chains. Perfect addition to a Spiritkeepers collection, ritual jewelry, or could even be used as an ornament for a small Wiccan Yule holiday tree! Can be worn by both men and ladies alike, (unisex).

Go to the Spiritkeepers Home at Realm of the Mystic Griffin to purchase & for more information.

Emperor Penguin Family Set

Hand painted realistic wildlife details!

The new Emperor Penguin Family Group is a set of 5 painted rocks; four beach pebble (jasper, agate, basalt) birds rest upright for display in natural grooves in the flat silica background stone. The baby Penguin is the world's smallest Spiritkeepers Stone to date at only 1/2" long by 1/4" wide! The largest bird in set is 1" by 2/4" and they are fun to play with because the scene can be changed! The set is a true unique creation of 3-D art. Each piece is individually signed with the Spiritkeepers sigil and numbered.

The shapes of the tiny pebbles inspired this set. I'd collected an interesting group of flat little stones, and had them together for quite some time. One day they caught my eye as a "family" and should stay together; hence the first Spiritkeepers set of any kind. I'd been saving the flat background rock for a long time. I thought of it right away as a perfect setting for the birds to rest upon. The scratched up surface the stone had to begin with reminded me of the way penguins will scratch out a walking path. It's a lot of fun playing with the pebbles, moving and changing the scene, and I think the set would be great stress relief at the office desk; certainly a unique conversation piece, and a perfect way to keep the spirit of a personal totem animal with you in the real world!
Visit my home site, Realm of the Mystic Griffin, to read original totem animal meaning for Emperor Penguin.

Slide on over to my Curio Castle Etsy store to see different photos and purchase this set at this time.

Shift Happens

The Curio Castle Shoppe and my Fine Art Store at Etsy are going through some big changes. We're currently relocating our real world location (home), and so I thought it best to temporarily close both of my Etsy shops during this time. If you have a favorite item, you can contact me and still make a purchase provided you can afford some patience as we organise the inventory storage. Good customer service and lovable products are always my priority, so I hope to resolve the situation swiftly.

Ongoing art projects too must sadly be put on hold for a while, and trust me this is the hard one for myself; shift happens, and shift we must. Overall I think the changes will be better for my family as well as my art work out put, but it sorely hurts to put a pause on things for now.
