Morgan Le Fay Pembrokeshire

I have been prompted to write this post after seeing an article posted by a photographer of pictures of the coastline of my home country.  Infact this place is one of my very special places that I visit time and time again, I stare out to the ocean over the Bishops and know that there is so much more a secret land a mystical energy or something that has become forgotten, something so beautiful.

Fata Morgana is an unusual and complex form of superior mirage that is seen in a narrow band right above the horizon. It is an Italian phrase derived from the vulgar Latin for “fairy” and the Arthurian sorceress Morgan le Fay, from a belief that these mirages, often seen in the Strait of Messina, were fairy castles in the air or false land created by her witchcraft to lure sailors to their death. Although the term Fata Morgana is sometimes incorrectly applied to other, more common kinds of mirages, the true Fata Morgana is not the same as an ordinary superior mirage, nor is it the same as an inferior mirage.

Fata Morgana mirages distort the object or objects which they are based on significantly, often such that the object is completely unrecognizable. A Fata Morgana can be seen on land or at sea, in polar regions or in deserts. This kind of mirage can involve almost any kind of distant object, including boats, islands, and the coastline.

A Fata Morgana is often rapidly changing. The mirage comprises several inverted (upside down) and erect (right side up) images that are stacked on top of one another. Fata Morgana mirages also show alternating compressed and stretched zones.[1]

This optical phenomenon occurs because rays of light are bent when they pass through air layers of different temperatures in a steep thermal inversion where anatmospheric duct has formed.[1] (A thermal inversion is an atmospheric condition where warmer air exists in a well-defined layer above a layer of significantly cooler air. This temperature inversion is the opposite of what is normally the case; air is usually warmer close to the surface, and cooler higher up.)

In calm weather, a layer of significantly warmer air can rest over colder dense air, forming an atmospheric duct which acts like a refracting lens, producing a series of both inverted and erect images. A Fata Morgana requires a duct to be present; thermal inversion alone is not enough to produce this kind of mirage. While a thermal inversion often takes place without there being an atmospheric duct, an atmospheric duct cannot exist without there first being a thermal inversion.

Arthurian legends identify Morgan Le Fay as the enchantress known as Nimuë, or the Lady of the Lake.

So now I Have a question?

Ancient folklore talks of ancient lost lands in the area,  Is this what the ancients saw?

Lost Lands

The remnants of fallen trees and stumps around the coastline are perhaps the most enticing evidence we have for the existence of long lost lands. They offer a tangible link to our ancestral landscape and have helped inspire numerous myths and legends of cities and countries swept away by the sea. Indeed, before their true nature was understood, they were believed to be the result of the biblical flood and were referred to as ‘Noah’s Trees’. They are revealed at low tide at many locations around the Welsh coast, from Rhyl and Abergele in the north, Borth and Newgale in the west to Amroth and Newport in the south.

TREES AS OUR TEACHERS

I have just been guided to write this post due to a picture a friend of mine posted on another site!.

Trees as Spiritual Teachers

By Melissa Krige

Trees and forests are a prerequisite for life on our planet. Referred to as the lungs of the Earth since they produce the oxygen we breathe, they are also climate-controllers and desert-preventers. They provide us with raw materials, timber, food and fodder, medicines and spices, shade and shelter.

Our physical dependence on trees is becoming increasingly well known, and there is a growing awareness of how our lifestyles and attitudes towards nature are resulting in global warming and subsequent climate change. Yet how many know of the spiritual dimension of trees?

Tree Worship

Our ancestors enjoyed a very different relationship with trees and nature. Prior to the industrial revolution that changed the very roots of society, humanity lived in greater harmony with the earth. This is reflected most clearly by our past connection to trees.

The world over, trees were venerated and held as symbols of fertility, wisdom, power and renewal. Across cultures and continents, the mythologies of ancient civilizations had at their core a Cosmic Tree or Tree of Life that explained our earthly existence. From all corners of the world, stories of tree worship abound. Forests and groves were holy sanctuaries for spiritual practice, and impressively large, old trees were seen as a channel for connecting with the divine.

A measure of how greatly trees were revered in the past, is an example from Germany where the punishment for removing bark from a tree resulted in the guilty party’s navel being cut out and nailed to the injured tree.The culprit was then driven around and around the tree until all his innards were wound about the trunk of the tree (*1). The life of a man for the life of a tree. Barbaric certainly, but food for thought: Does this not symbolise what we do to our collective selves as we wantonly fell and poison with acid rain the great forests that once grew so abundantly over the earth’s surface?

So I have held a strong connections to trees for quite some time now it started as a young child whilst I visited my Grad-parents home  a beautiful graceful Red Copper Beech.

I’m picking up (good) vibrations!

The term “vibes” or “vibrations” is often used to describe certain feelings that a person has for another or feelings they might get from some situation or thing. If you have ever personally felt positive or negative “vibes” coming from people or things, you are tapping into and beginning to understand the most basic and yet most important aspect of our selves, our consciousness, and of our Universe.

Modern science has proven what our ancient Earthkeepers and our shaman guides have known for centuries; That everything in the Universe is in a state of vibration. As “Healing Sounds” and Ancient Solfeggio expert Jonathan Goldman puts it: “From the electrons moving around the nucleus of an atom, to planets and distant galaxies and stars. As they’re creating movement, they are creating vibration, and this vibration can be perceived of as sound. So everything is creating a sound, including the sofa that we’re sitting on, or this table, or our bodies. Every organ, every bone, every tissue, every system of the body is creating a sound. The Human ear, in its very limited capability, can only hear a certain range of vibrations, but we are affected in ways by all sounds, including the ones we cannot hear. What we cannot hear we can still feel and be affected by.

Gaia, the ancient name for our Earth, vibrates at a certain frequency (The Schumann Resonance) and the earthly bodies on her vibrate at their own special frequencies. Mountains vibrate. Oceans and trees vibrate. So does our Sun, our galaxy, and our physical bodies. The vibrational frequency or tone that our human body emits, when we are in tune with nature, is in exact and perfect harmony with the frequency that Gaia’s body emits. There are certain tones that can affect us in very positive and loving ways. For example, when we hear a good song we love on the radio it makes us feel happy or it reminds us of someone we Love. The vibrations that the instruments make and the tones the singer sings are understood by us. We feel in harmony with that song and comfortable listening to it.

Contrarily, when we hear a song being played and one of the instruments is playing in the wrong key with the rest of the band or the singer has a particularly grating vocal quality and is not singing in tune, we have feelings of negativity and we may feel like we are being put off-center or off-balance by the music. These tones make us feel disharmonious.

WHY ?

I was at a concert the other day .  It has prompted me to write this post, the event was amazing and the performance was amazing , however I have to ask the question how many people there truly engaged with the artist they had paid good money to go and see, NOT MANY why you may ask, well I will tell you, 90 per cent of people watched the concert through their mobile phone and i pads constantly waving them in the air , so what they watched a distorted image putting a block between themselves and the artist , did they realize I guess not!  Did they connect no they did not.

Not only is it dis-respectful to other people in the audience who do not want technology flung around their faces it is also very disrespectful & ignorant to the artist, I know as an artist myself how I would feel if people viewed my works of art through a mobile phone rather than direct contact eye to eye, or eye to canvas not eye to electro screen.

No one really likes to be watched through a mobile phone, its a tad strange and creepy how would you feel if people were talking to you face to face through there mobile phone when your standing right in front of them?

 I have just come accross a article which I actually agree with 100 per cent.

All the above goes for all those special moments events.
