Folk Customs: Sacred Trees in Belgium 

Today was our last day in Belgium, in Han Sur Lesse, where we was for an art fair. We done something special. Ask help to the sacred Tree of the town an “arbre a clous”
Those trees had magical powers. When you drive a screw or hammer a nail in you transfer your pains and diseases. 

The nail or the screw need to touch the ill body part. For me it’s the heart so i wore it all the day in my bra.


My man wore his screw on the belt in the way to heal his intestines. 

There are so much nails and screws in the trunk, old ones are covered by the tree skin.


We wait now the results on our pains !

Birthday super day: shamanic drums and singing bowl  

Hi shadows, 

After the party with family today was birthday day. I hate big parties, full of people with whom you don’t have the time to talk. I prefer being with people i love and talk, share, laugh and feel good together. 

We were lucky, the weather was perfect. With my man, his son and my best friend we’ve gone in woods for doing some magick. We’re both interested by old pagan pratices, sprirituality and roots. We share a lot of things on this topics. 

My man and I are shamanic drum player. Shamanic drums are the horse of the shaman, which does the link between worlds. It’s a fantastic way to develop your sensibility and being open to worlds. It’s also a great thing for relaxing and meditate. My best friend is using tibetan singing bowl in the same way. It was the very first time we played together and it was really enchanting with the sun on our skin, the wind blowing around us, the overlook on the valley bellow us, the birds freshly out for spring. 

Tambours shamaniques


I’ve painted my drum. A lot of shamans, especially in Samis ( Lapland) tribes are painting their drums with their own symbols. I do mine having this in spirit. 


After playing we walk through the woods for showing a special rock to my best friend. Legends says that around Berchta is guiding innocent souls to the Valhalla. It measures 9 m. 


We finished the day with a restaurant. It was really an awesome birthday. 

Cheers
