Bird People, and the Hidden Queen

All across our planet in ancient writings, and in ancient art we see Bird People, or Avian “gods,” we could surmise that they were thought of as “gods” because of their great powers, or because they came in flight from the heavens. We have been told that these are myths. Myths as defined; a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events. Something that is not true, not a reality. Who says? They say, the scholars, academics, and historians. I believe where there is smoke, there is fire. Something “natural” inspired these myths, who is to say, that these things are not “natural,” but supernatural. They again say this. Yet, some of the BIGGEST myths ever are believed to be real by the masses. I for one believe there is truth to what is seen in the ancient art, and stories.

You may be familiar with the story of the hidden queen, it pops up in movies, Star Wars, MIB 2, Jupiter Rising and others. A queen is hidden on Earth ,”they,” the opposing force knows that she is here, and they wish to find her at all cost. Why?

There is more to that story but I will leave you with that.

Mythology, fact or fiction? I believe the greatest injustice perpetuated on us is that mythology and ancient art is all some stylized version of their supernatural beliefs.

Here are some links for further review, if you are so inclined.

Sacred Feathers

native_american_eagle-22903Music

Well it will be interesting to see how this feather thing pans out. I bought a new book on symbols at the bookstore, The Element Encyclopedia of Secret Signs and Symbols. So, I decide to read on feathers. Here is an excerpt of the entry.

The symbolism of feathers is closely aligned to that of wings and birds. They stand for ascendance, flight, communication with the spirit realms and the element of air. Shamanistic use of feathers is for all these reasons; the feathers enable the soul to become as light as the feather and transcend the boundaries of gravity, time, and space. Shamans of all nationalities wear feathers as a part of their ritual apparel.

The eagle feather is the most valuable of all feathers. In some parts of the world, this feather, synonymous with all the power of the bird, is considered so sacred that only card-carrying Native American tribal members may own them. Eagle feathers that are found in the wrong hands are the cause of heavy fines.

This is a fact. I googled it. It is called ,The Eagle Feather Law. Wikipedia says,

The eagle feather law provides many exceptions to federal wildlife laws regarding eagles and other migratory birds to enable American Indians to continue their traditional practices.

Under the current language of the eagle feather law, individuals of certifiable American Indian ancestry enrolled in a federally recognized tribe are legally authorized to obtain eagle feathers. Unauthorized persons found with an eagle or its parts in their possession can be fined up to $25,000. The eagle feather law allows for individuals who are adopted members of federally recognized tribes to obtain eagle feathers and eagle feather permits.

So until I am adopted by a recognized tribe, no feather. The Native American man I spoke to must have thought I was crazy. lol

I am part Cherokee but…I am from the Lost Tribe and We are not Federally Recognized. The Lost Tribe fell out from the Trail of Tears staying in Oklahoma and did not get on the Dawes Roll. I feel certain this symbolism that is so resonant with me has some reason but……

As I was driving through the plains of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona,  I had images of the Native Americans and time gone by. I felt a connection to another dimension and time line, maybe it was faint but it was there. Possibly I was delusional. lol I don’t know how many of my Word Press friends and readers have been to the American South West?  It has an ancient, Palaeolithic  beauty, like the  Grand Canyon, and Sedona, I visited  Sedona five years ago with my departed best friend and his husband. I am looking forward to visiting again soon. I have not been to the Grand Canyon. Oh boy I am really looking forward to that.

I just looked up the various tribes from the area, there are 21 recognized American Indian tribes in Arizona today. My great grandmother was one half Cherokee, making me 1/16th.  Cherokee are really more the area I came from but I am certain that anyone in this natures majesty feels some ancestral connection to those peoples, no matter what country or ancestry you are from. I will be learning more as I explore the state.
