note to self: when the fog rolls in, focus on what’s right in front of you. In this case it’s the Koa tree, symbol of strength, a reminder of yours within mahalo mahalo mahalo #gaia 🌳💚

“Furious and tempered, the lizard king threw on his armor and secured his sacred sword. He would cut down the fox, he would shave the world of all who defied him. The time had come and there was no turning back now. A lesser reptile, a loyal assistant approached the king. He hissed and began to speak, “We’ve received word, a solitary horned being below, a thief, is in possession of the skulls.” The king swung around and walked to his personal ship. “Arm your men, I want that fox brought before me. I will go and retrieve the skulls myself.” The assistant nodded and went at once to inform the soldiers. Armed and determined the king set up his ship. The monitors came to life as he saw in the screen the satyr, hazed and delusional walking in and out of trees. The king could see the skulls pulsating and vibrating, waiting for to be activated. He set the controls for where the satyr was headed, to his home in an old run down temple, around swamps and mosquitoes. In moments the ship dispatched and launched itself towards the destination. Down below the satyr sensed in his heightened state of mind that something was coming. He applied more of the poison upon his tongue and unsheathed a rusted dagger. It would not be the first time he had run into trouble. Inside the temple room ahead were fellow scavengers and pirates. Drunk and disorderly they awaited the satyr to see what he had gathered from his travels. Cutlasses at their side and barrels of rum, the temple housed some of the fiercest figures around. A fire could be seen streaking across the sky and the fox could feel its blaze. There was no time to waste, they would need to confront this darkness head on.”- MysticYautja 🦊

February. ❅ I wonder if people are starting to realize that 70% of my photos are the same places and same angles, just with different weather.

I’m making progress on this sweet guy today. ☺️ I decided to paint without layers and it’s soooooo much easier for me! I guess because it’s how I’m used to working with traditional media. My acrylic paint and canvas don’t have a “layers” option. 😂 I’m considering making limited edition prints of this guy when he’s done. What do you think? 🤔 #procreate #digitalillustration #workinprogress #forestdweller #mushroomhead #lichenhead

There are so many things we can discuss when the topic of pollution arises, from small impacts to catastrophic. The plastic pollution from stickers on our produce is small beans. Fossil fuels are catastrophic. ⁣ ⁣ Coal is the most polluting of all fossil fuels. In order to halt the rising global temperature and prevent us from reaching a cataclysmic tipping point, we HAVE to keep coal in the ground. Untouched. Which means we have to be willing to go through the economic discomfort of weaning ourselves off this resource -- stat. ⁣ ⁣ What can we do about this? ⁣ ⁣ When it comes to climate change, many things are beyond "small actions."⁣ ⁣ I will champion "every little bit matters" until my dying day, but the reality is, our small changes are no longer enough -- even collectively.⁣ ⁣ We need drastic, global paradigm shifts and reorganization of society. We need a radical reimagining of the ways of being human on this Earth.⁣ ⁣ We the ordinary people can become a collective roar in our cities and countries -- at rallies and marches, voting booths and ballots. We must put our voices and votes behind policies, laws and leaders who will quickly and effectively take us in the direction of 100% renewable resources. ⁣ ⁣ This is the big leagues; but that doesn't mean our small voices don't matter. They matter now more than ever.⁣

Desolate and forgotten, I tried my best to find my old camp site from all those years ago, but to no avail. There was a time when I spent several days traveling down abandoned tracks and camping. These were the woods which I had spent a night, completely untouched yet still swallowed by time. Warm weather can’t come soon enough.

Progress on the face. You might have noticed that I always carve the face first, almost finishing it, while the figure is barely roughed out. It’s not the smartest way to work, but I do it because it’s a way for me to see if the wood is able to hold the level of detail I want to achieve. Also it’s because I love to carve faces and I have no self control ;) For those who ask me how to carve eyes: remember that an eye is a ball inside a socket. If you’re confused about where anything on the face should be, it’s helpful to touch your own face for depth and anatomy reference. Additionally, look in the mirror, study faces around you and make sketches. Wood is Spanish Cedar. . . . . #woodcarving #woodworking #handcarving #slowliving (I wish) #workwithyourhands #handwerk #whittling #woodland #facesculpting #forestdweller #woodchips #handcraft #handtools #резьбаподереву #своимируками #деревянныеизделия #cedarwood #spanishcedar #creativehappylife #knifecarving #woodsculpture #creaturecarvings #makesomething #houtsnijden #handwerk #handmadeinnewyork

We revel in the peculiarities in nature, with Curious Thursdays! This day we will shine a light on the peculiarities in nature. The world around us contains so much diversity and magic, why not explore, learn and celebrate the capabilities of life! This week we shout out, Frisson! Frisson is an emotional reaction that can give us the "chills" when we listen to music, look at art, or watch something truly moving. It is a sudden increase of dopamine to the brain, giving us good feels, and rewarding experience. While only half of us have the ability to experience this, it closely relates to a trait of Openess to Experience.

It seems that these were a little more than just hunting stands considering all the random materials that were used to build them. There were floor mats as roofing, caulk guns all over the forest floor, cans of beans and soup, and articles of clothing. I’m sure there were other things but the snow covered lots of what could be seen. I didn’t go up into them because they looked weathered and also they were probably 15 feet up in the trees. I always admire resourcefulness and whoever made these was definitely that. Very inspiring and a fantastic find. You never know what you’ll run into in the forests, always go for the lands untouched for they are the most rewarding. Happy Thors day everyone! 🦊 #witchwriter #spiritualwriting #magickwriting #forestlife #forestdweller #forestchild #naturelove #natureworship #naturechild #wanderer #traveler #nomad #explorer #stayferal #stayadventurous #solitarywitch #eclecticwitch #greenwitch #forestwitch #oldsoul #occult #foxspirit #witchessociety #pagansofinstagram #witchesofinstagram #heathensofinstagram

The Twins. These trees have grown so close together, the bottom 50 feet of their trunks merged into one. These trees are a token of friendship, and a reminder that no matter what, we’re not alone. . . Big Trees collection coming to the shop this Saturday 🌲

Spring is on the verge of being sprung 🌷 - I love watching everyone get excited about the end of winter being in sight. It’s like we’re all excited about winter at the start of it when Christmas is in sight and then after new years we’re all just plodding along keeping an eye on those blossom trees for the first few blooms of the next season. 🌸 - I really wasn’t sure about this image (still not fully convinced) but sometimes you’ve just got to give things a go! _______________________ #memyselfandportrait #flowerface #underthefloralspell   #bloomandgrow #everysquareastory #botanicalpickmeup   #letselflovebloom #the_gentle_manifesto #fosterthoughtfulness #forestdweller    #fa_fadeaway #bohosoul   #moodyfilm   #seekingthestars #springiscoming #gatherandstyle #myfloraldays   #caughtflowerhanded #flowersgivemepower   #slowfloralstyle #petalperfection   #ihavethisthingwithflowers #thisismycommunity   #theartofslowliving #folkandstory #seethemagic #theblisspr0ject #the_gallery_of_magic #tree_magic

I am currently learning about Insta-bots. Imho they suck. It got me thinking a lot about this app and what it does to you 🙄😂 Initially it was all about photography, now it's all about strategy. Very weird!?! So with spring arriving ever so slowly I have decided to do a little spring cleaning myself and identify and chuck out any ghost follkwers and rethink who I follow. . That said I'm also thinking of those who I have a real conversation with here on Instagram.... So! Stay tuned, I'll get back to you really soon! . . . . . . . . #springtime #springflower #springfeeling #springrain #springcoming #springbulbs #springblossoms #springphotography #springbeauty #forestal #foreattherapy #forestmagic #forestdweller #forest_capture #tree_enthusiast #tree_perfection #forestporn #forestpainting #forestart

We hear often enough about greenhouse gases and the destruction of rainforests. But do we understand the connection between the two?⁣ ⁣⁣ Somewhere between 15% and 25% of our greenhouse gases are caused by deforestation. When trees are cut down, the carbon that they’ve been storing up is released into the atmosphere, mixing with other greenhouse gases and contributing to the overall effect of global warming. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The trees that, for all these years have been the protectors of our oxygen, are suddenly and violently turned into perpetrators of environmental harm - at our own hands. And not only are we not preventing deforestation, we are not making the minimum reparations of reducing our usage of cars and increasing our fuel efficiency. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The ones in charge of this mass genocide of habitat, loss of lives and altering of our ozone and oxygen are only in it for profit. They don’t largely care about stewardship of our planet and all who call it home. They won’t be around, or so they think, when it all goes up in flames.⁣ ⁣⁣ And so, as with so many important issues, the call to action falls on the rest of us. The ordinary citizens, who impact change more than we know, with our dollars and our votes and our day-to-day choices.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ From what coffee we buy to the paper products we use to how much meat we eat to the palm oil in many of our products, we have the power to make different choices as consumers who care.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ | Day 3: #ecokindyogi , deforestation & hand to big toe pose |⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Hosts:⁣⁣⁣⁣ @starofsavannah ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @flou_yoga ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @omwithmelissa ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @sweetnattydee ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @yogadoodsies ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Sponsors:⁣⁣⁣⁣ @gocleveryoga ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @glassticbottle ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @liquidoactive ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @lyfefuel ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @mybedofnails ⁣⁣⁣⁣ @sukhi_yoga ⁣⁣⁣

🌲 Autumn empress🌲 Happy super moon! I wasn’t able to see the moon although I was still able to do cleansing and ridding of my negativity!! I even called out to my Goddess and spoke to her 🌿🌕 Here I’m holding one of my favourite herbs Mugwort which I use to cleanse and sometimes sprinkle on objects when doing spellwork! Do y’all have a favourite herb?

A little clip from last night’s ritual. As I’ve said before I like to film everything I do to see if anything strange or interesting happens during it. I was really the energies last night, that full moon was brilliant. There was definitely a lot I needed to get off my chest and to attract, I believe I did a pretty good job. The roads by me are absolutely atrocious today, so take care and stay safe out there! Bright blessings and happy Wodens day! 🦊 #witchwriter #spiritualwriting #magickwriting #forestlife #forestdweller #forestchild #naturelove #natureworship #naturechild #wanderer #traveler #nomad #explorer #stayferal #stayadventurous #solitarywitch #eclecticwitch #greenwitch #forestwitch #oldsoul #occult #foxspirit #witchessociety #pagansofinstagram #witchesofinstagram #heathensofinstagram

•.T E X T U R E.•🌿 . Lichen are beautifully bizarre, no two exactly alike, each having their own stunning and strange appearance, while they do have some plant-like properties, Lichens are not plants... they are incredibly complex life forms, with over 20,000 known species worldwide, and are made up of Fungi and Algae that share a symbiotic partnership, living in union, intertwined with one another for mutual benefit. . Lichen are most commonly found on bark or rock, are slow growing and long living, and have been used by mankind as a food source, medicine, (with most species possessing antibiotic properties) and even as a natural fabric dye. . There is much folklore regarding Lichen, often this is how different species of lichen were given their names, one example of this is the word Lichen itself, it's origin rooted in the Greek word "Leprous", due to some species of lichen being likened to skin affected with Leprosy. Because of this, lichen became a common medical treatment for skin ailments of this kind. . . Old folktales from Scotland, Ireland and England share this theme, suggesting lichen could magically and medicinally cure any ailments of the human body that the lichens appearance resembled... 🌿✨ . . . . . . . . . . #lichen #algae #fungi #symbiotic #bark #mycologysociety #mushroomsociety #forestfinds #nature #coloursoftheforest #naturephotography #beautyofnature #dark #darkforest #pagan #forest #woodlandwanderer #magical #folklore #herbalism #naturalmedicine #botany #mycology #forestdweller #woodlandwanderer #forestwitch #natureworship #heathen #oldways #theoldways 🌿
