The energy of daisy invites us to reflect upon being your trueself, soul self. It is not hard to be yourself, your true self, soul self. Matter of fact this is what we want to be all the while and so then why aren’t we able to maintain being our true self and making it our way of being, way of life? What makes it hard is one’s holding onto one’s self judgment, outdated habits and patterns that one has learned and acquired from culture, religion, outside influences, limited belief systems, one’s inability to accept, acknowledge and face one’s fears of what one has believed about oneself, the choices you have made good, bad or indifferent and the actions you took to validate your ego self. Daisy is here to help and assist you with softening up that rigidity you have build around you about yourself that you don’t want to look at. Reflect upon those walls. Bring a pot of daisies or a stem of daisy and meditate and ask it to show you how to self accept you so you can let go of this rigidity. Because underneath this wall is your true self, your soul the unique, the giving, the compassionate, the beautiful soul. The energy is available for you to let go and come into self acceptance and embrace the true you. It’s okay if you don’t know you. Accept and begin the journey of knowing you in the now. With the help of Daisy allow this opening of your heart and experience being you. The time is NOW. See you through the eyes of your own soul.
Affirmation: I am now in complete self acceptance of my true self.

This week the energy invites us to reflect on the Seed. The soul of the seed. A seed is brought to life by its soul and the soul of the seed here is Gaea, Mother Earth. Without the soul, without Mother Earth the physical form which is the seed has no value until the soul breathes and gives life to its physical form, the seed. You the physical form has no value until your soul gives you the seed the life that your soul has designed for you. You are the seed of your soul. In order for you to thrive, to grow, to know how to live, what is best for you, your purpose as the seed of your soul one must connect with the soul isn’t it? If the seed starts to look at other seeds and wants to grow how other seeds are growing and not how it soul wants the seed to grow what do you think will happen? The seed will struggle, the seed will grow painfully because it focused on other seeds than its own. Without your own souls awareness, knowledge, breadth one cannot grow and know there true self. Every seed has its own purpose to serve and to know its purpose that seed must look to his/ her own soul not to anyone else or anything outside of its soul. If GAEA is the soul of a seed then Gaea knows what that seed is capable of doing, what is best for that seed. Does the seeds best interest, purpose is to become a tree, flower, blade of grass what is the seed’s purpose is what soul decides not the physical form. So your soul already has decided and knows what the seed, you is all about. From the birth of the seed, you till your life’s end your soul has designed her/his seed’d life already. No one outside of me can know that because they are not my soul, not my source of knowledge, information not my path. Be the seed of your soul and watch the magick. Magick comes from being one with our true self, one with our spiritual world.

Cerridwen and the Power of Inspiration
MARCH 22, 2021 BY KRISTOFFER HUGHES READ TIME: 5 MINS
“A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.”—Salvador Dali
At times the world can feel uninspiring and disenchanted; there is not a single person on the face of the earth that has not felt profound challenges and crisis during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Being inspirational in a world that may not feel inspired is a difficult task, but help is at hand. Cerridwen’s function in Welsh myth and lore and in the practice of Celtic Magic is as the conduit of inspiration. In the Welsh language, we have a name for the kind of inspiration that Cerridwen represents; it is called Awen.
This small four-letter word packs quite a punch; in essence, it describes the creative force of the Universe itself that flows through all existences, and all things that have the spark of life sing to this force inwardly and externally. It causes us to feel inspired and to be inspirational. The etymology of the word means “holy” or “blessed breath,” and it blows through us from the great cauldron of Cerridwen. Her cauldron gives shape and form to the ever-flowing, ever blowing spirit of Awen, and she is its director.
Cerridwen stands at the edge of the great cauldron of creation that brings the un-manifest into manifestation. Imagine if you will a conductor of an orchestra with her baton cutting through the air; Cerridwen serves a similar function in casting a spell that brings about inspiration. For the conductor of an orchestra that magic is to invoke the ensemble power of music, while for Cerridwen the spell is one of transformative inspiration, Awen. It is infectious and only apathy can cause its dimming in the heart and spirit, but even that cannot withstand the sheer power of the Awen to break its spell. But what do we when we just don’t feel inspired?
First, let’s look at the meaning and function of inspiration. Derived from the Latin inspirates, meaning to breathe into or the drawing in of air, and simultaneously the influence of the divine upon an individual or collective, it shares a commonality with the word Awen. Both terms speak of the power of the breath. When we are inspired we are awoken to new possibilities, and it allows us to transcend our everyday mundane experiences. Inspiration allows us to break down the restraints of our assumed limitations. The sheer force of inspiration has the power to propel us from the bondage of apathy to the potentiality of possibility.
Inspiration has 3 specific components: evocation, transcendence, and catalyst. The process of evocation causes us to call something forth from within ourselves; these can be initiated by internal or external stimuli that gives us a “eureka” moment where an idea is conjured in the mind that causes a rushing forth of inspiration. The process of evocation responds to the currents of inspiration as it blows through us. In turn this leads to a sense of transcendence where our limitations are crushed under the weight of inspiration; we suddenly feel the tangible sense of, “I can do this!,” or, “I know what I must do!” From this state we are led automatically to become the catalyst for that inspiration and are compelled to transmit it through expression; this is the act of being inspirational. As catalysts of inspiration we cause a proliferation of Awen to blow through the world.
Apathy is an infection that blocks the rivers of Awen and redirects its currents. In an apathetic state we can feel so far from inspiration that we no longer feel the breeze of its power to lift us from melancholy. It is apathy that gives voice to our internalised demons, to our inner saboteur, it feeds the blind spot within us that prevent us from seeing our own potential. The dam of apathy cannot be resolved on the same conscious level that we created it. The cure for apathy is not to dismantle it, but to blind it with the light of Awen, to become inspired. Apathy cannot thrive in the light of joyous Awen.
Cerridwen as the Goddess of inspiration stands poised at the great cauldron, her hand outstretched, with wand aloft pulling and guiding the currents of Awen and their direction as they blow through our Universe. By connecting to and working with Cerridwen we align ourselves with that power and are better positioned to receive and perceive its currents. In difficult times Cerridwen serves to remind us of the power of Awen and inspiration, and that even when we feel the least inspired, we can conduct ourselves to move consciously into its stream of influence. Her wish is for her children to be the Awen that the world needs. Your life is a message to this world, and yet life is so brief, there is little time for bickering and bitterness, loathing and resentment, we have only time for love and joy and inspiration. Our task is to help ourselves and others to transform their anxieties into joy.
4 Simple Way to Work with Cerridwen
Create a space or altar dedicated to Cerridwen and that which inspires you, and how you inspire others. Be creative with what you place here to represent these qualities. You do not need an elaborate statue to connect with Cerridwen a small cauldron or bowl will be more than sufficient.
Draw, carve, or make a symbol of the Awen for your altar/space. Consider the nature of the symbol daily; the circle represents the cauldron of Cerridwen, the three dots the source of un-manifest inspiration, the rays the expression of your inspiration. it is drawn thus:
Call to Cerridwen and imagine the silver currents of Awen streaming from her wand and directly through you.
Honour Cerridwen by being inspirational.
Inspiration is not just a concept; it is not something we believe in, it is something that we do. There are many ways to stir the cauldron of Awen and feel inspired.
7 Tips to Be Inspired
Do something that is just outside of your comfort zone to challenge yourself and your perception.
Spend a day telling the people around you what you appreciate about them.
Teach someone something that you enjoy doing.
Be motivated and inspired by others by watching vlogs or TED talks.
Regularly allow yourself a break to disconnect from the tech pressures of society.
Journal your thoughts and then read them out loud to yourself.
Read a book from your childhood or specifically written for children every 3 months.
Working with Cerridwen and the power of Awen/Inspiration helps us to be the light in the darkness, to be kind and genuine, to be gracious and charming. Cerridwen teaches us that where there is inspiration, there is hope; where there is hope there is magic; and where there is magic there is always a brighter future.
Cerridwen stands where Awen and matter meet, so let us join her there at the edge of the great cauldron, and make magic that made the universe.

Nisha Designs: Our Taurus Collection was awarded the first prize🥇: We share this today even though this design was designed back in 1999 our designs are timeless, magickal, evergreen and hold a very special place in the universe through eternity.
Our theme was to design on Astrological signs for our final year of college. To create a room only with this sign. I got Taurus. And we chose to use the alchemical symbol of a Taurus for our presentation. Color given to us for the theme was rose quartz, pink shades as one of the crystals that belongs to taurus is Rose quartz. And we had to design 3 surface patterns that can be used for any application and how we have used these designs in what application was to be determined the winner. As they wanted to grade us on our skills to see how we implement a design to its best aesthetics and not just design to design as a commodity to make money but how do we see it as a value that we would bring onto this planet were our parameters. Yes back in the days thinking about our planet and what we bring to it was important (which we have lost in today’s world the thought) Testing our visualization skills, composition style of a design. And mind you that time all designs were hand painted into repeats, no computers were available. How to make a design useful. Very important aesthetic and visualizing skills required to understand the element, it’s presence and value it brings to ones space, to this planet is an important skill as textile artist/designer that knowledge which only comes from within. No one can teach you that. Would test our intuitive awareness as a designer too. The building block of a composition of a design determines how it works with planet earth. This is our first design. This pattern was used in a burn out sheer application. It was beautiful and gorgeous.

This artist sculpts huge sand animals to the point that they look real. His beginning with sand sculptures was 10 years ago. It all started when he made a little mermaid when he was on the beach with his two daughters, and in that moment he discovered the fluidity of his hands.
The last 10 years were dedicated purely and exclusively to developing this gift and these are the 30 best sculptures Andoni has created:
1. A shark devouring someone
2. In this case the shark does not look so violent
5. The coat of this Jaguar can practically be felt
6. A moment before the attack
7. A very realistic little puppy
8. Not only does he make animal sculptures, he also makes human sculptures
9. This beluga is stranded in the middle of the beach, but don’t worry, it’s not real
10. Just imagine walking along this beach and finding this huge shark in the middle of the road.
11. A dog emerging from the sand
12. Besides making them look real, you also take time to color them
13. You can also find animals that do not usually inhabit the beaches
14. Not only does he believe them, he also loves posing with them
15. I don’t know if you are too, but I would be very scared to see this
16. Andoni has a fascination for sand, because according to him it doesn’t matter how you look at it. “The sand always teaches you things if you have the predisposition to learn”
17. “To create a sculpture, you need an unimaginable amount of sand particles hugging themselves in the moisture. They just need someone who can give a model and a shape to this beautiful union “mentioned the artist
18. Once the artist moves away from the sculpture, she will be at the mercy of Mother Nature. This means that one day the wind will dry them and give each particle freedom, gradually consuming all its authenticity. In simple words, it will make her disappear
19. The beauty of these sculptures disappears before you imagine a beach
20. Visitors meet very early to watch Andoni creating his works of art
21. “There are many reasons why I love making animal sculptures, but one of them is that animals are totally free spirits” said Andoni
22. “Humans can learn a lot from animals and reflect just by looking at them”
23. “There is also the nudity that they brought to our planet from birth to death. That nudity, at least for me, is a symbol of freedom and a fundamental ingredient to be able to truly live ”said Andoni in the interview.
24. On some occasions, he decides to do something more mystical than realistic, however his creations continue to amaze tourists every day.
25. Humans “dress too much” to survive in many ways. I will never make a sculpture of an animal with a necklace or chain. I prefer to show his freedom, his power and wisdom through beauty rather than suffering
26. With his sculptures he also intends to raise awareness about the waste that reaches the oceans
27. Pollution in the seas grows to such an extent that it is estimated that in some years we will have huge islands formed by garbage
28.Some tourists look for it specifically to recreate their pets with sand
29. The garbage that he uses to create his sculptures is collected purely and exclusively from the beaches where he makes them.
30. Andoni has been perfecting his works of art for more than 10 years
