It’s Autumn and all animals prepare for the winter. They eat more and stockpile food they can find. Mother Nature provides in abundance where she still can: beech nuts, hazel nuts, chest nuts, berries, mushrooms…..

We humans, unfortunately, tile the garden and use the leaf blower in order to have an as clean as possible garden. Municipality’s more and more often do not plant hazel, beeches, oaks and chestnut trees because they get so big and build roots that demolish the beloved asphalt.

In all our urbanization drift we forget, that there are other inhabitants on earth who need the food, the leafs….and that we humans need Nature to keep us healthy. The best way to help our fellow residents is to actually have a garden without tiles and somewhere in that garden a plain mess.


Animals and plants need the leafs as warm cover. In a mess like the above, they can find hiding places for the winter and room for their food stock. So put your blower away and actually let the garden come to rest til spring. Most leaves will be gone by than and make a fine compost for new growth.

Look up your Sun sign and ascendant.

The info given is only in dutch. Personally, I found the info very interesting and useful.

Chicken Ears

If you think you had it all than someone post something on Twitter.

It’s time for a funny story. @Parafernadia posted advertisement from Netherlands best known grocer Albert Heijn.


Ears? On a chicken? And their color determine the color of the eggs? White ears – white eggs – brown ears – brown eggs?

Must be nonsense! Besides, I never saw ears on a chicken’s head. Have you? So I went searching for info.

Chickens have ears but not like our ears. Their ears are inside, covered with a bunch of little feathers. That’s why I did not see ears. The only thing on the outside of the head concerning ears is the ear lobe.


So far so good. They have ears and they can hear extremely well with it.

We mad humans bred chickens with ear lobes of our liking, form and color,  the pure natural chicken is too common.


Now what’s about the egg color? Is the advertisement true? After all, to sell products, people tell us lies all the time.


Went on searching and finally found an extensive article about chickens.

Here we go!Chicken_looking_around

We have chicken with white, red, yellow, blue and even purple ears. So maybe the white and brown eggs are for us, produced by white and red ear lobes. The chickens with all the colors produce the eggs for the Easter Bunny.


Nothing of all this is true. The color of the ear lobe doesn’t determine the color of the eggs – that is one hell of a wide-spread believe. The wise marketing manager or agency fell for it and Albert Heijn bought it too.

Maybe a lot of customers are believers of AH and they tell it their kids and the

Legend of the Egg color

will be alive for more centuries to come.


If you dare Pt.2

The painting is home from the exhibition. Heard, that other people experienced the garden also.

When I asked Piet, who works in the church, for a bag to take the painting home, he looked at the painting for maybe 2 sec to measure it up and then said:” So you’re carrying home the deep dark animal forest!”

The energy of the painting is strong obviously and people experience the part that is appealing to their  energy field. That is what happens all the time when people see a painting I made.

monastery garden


Just found the article from Manuela v/d Knaap about the working of the 3rd supermoon we have now – in full length and in dutch to be found here:


This article is very accurate and it’s truth is to be seen in everyday life, at least I see it that way. Even in my personal life I deal with the energy described. Let’s see:

It is again a very special full (third) super moon conjunct Chiron the cosmic wound and mastery. In an accelerating pace, our cosmic karma is felt to master it. If you are willing to go with yourself, it will move you into a super soft loving energy.

Felt the change coming from the start of September and I am wearing now the Charoit gem stone I wrote about



violently felt a profound struggle for authority. And struggle with time. On the world stage there is fighting (behind the scenes) to the new leadership (Uranus in Aries square Pluto in reception with Saturn and Mars). That “the common man” is played and manipulated by directors is painfully obvious.

What came to mind immediately was, the name Putin, the separatists who managed to block a proper investigation of flight MH17, the wischiwaschi and bullshit of the Politicians about what to do in that case and NATO meeting concerning IS. Near by all politicians are playing and manipulate their voters and we all suffer from their actions recently. No one is straight in word and deed. In my personal life, I experienced it last week as you know in my never-ending story with taxes…..

….In your own life will be asked to actively and vigorously  stay at the helm and your life into your own hands … restraining straps call for innovation, to be accepted,let go and then to choose a new life direction. ….

That is a bit like the message of my dreams last night under the Full Moon.

Now  also the black Moon went into (average) Virgo went into in a conjunction with Venus. (true black Moon is still in Leo) ….. The cosmic octave of Virgo demands purity in all areas, food, communication, relationships, governance. Also organizing and communication between individual facets in us and in our lives come under scrutiny and service versus victimization.

Now Venus is also in the average Black Moon in Virgo, and there is much to do around purification and discernment and insights into the cosmic pure feminine.

I wrote about my average and true black moon here: http://redskywalkeronearth.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/black-moon-conclusion/

As you can read I have my average black moon also in Virgo. So now finally  I may remember my knowledge of herbs and more which is located in the average black moon in Virgo in my case. So that’s why I intuitively painted the monastery garden…

So if you read an article like the article written by Manuela v/d Knaap – don’t just read it but work with it, feel if it is already working in you, if you already heard that bell ringing or if you feel resistance around this theme.

Again a dream

The Full Moon night brought two strange dreams.

The first was dreadful and disgusting while dreaming it. In the dream my bed was full of little animals like worms, insects and caterpillars – the caterpillars came last, all in striking colours and funny faces. Now I’m awake and thinking back, they all looked very funny, but still….

caterThe next one was strange too.

On a market, I bought an Iguana, a Tiger and a Panda Bear in a huge cage and took them home. There I realized, that this was a very strange combination of animals in one cage and they probably would eat each other, mainly the tiger the other two. So what to do?

I gave them water, grass and hay. Nothing they would normally eat I realized, they need bamboo, meat and insects. In the dream I remembered the insects and thought that they would come in use now if I could combine dreams. Because I couldn’t  I took the bus to Cologne instead, to find the vendor from the market and give him back the animals. That was one hell of a trip because I took the wrong bus and kept getting lost. Finally I went home to see, that the three animals did not eat each other. Went searching for meat and bamboo, realizing that

a) it was not right to keep those lovely animals in a cage  for ever


b) I would never ever have enough money to sustain a good living and food for them.

Here I woke up wondering what that was all about.

IguanaLooked the animals up with animal totem explanation.

  • Caterpillar

Caterpillars are associated with good luck and new birth, a need for gentle and quiet approaches to our activities and endeavors. They can also signal a surprise or gift about to be offered to us

  • Worm

A time to examine and digest what has occurred in our life, cast off what is not beneficial or necessary, clean house emotionally, new growth.

  • silverfish

They ask to sail in a smooth course, to stop sometimes and then continue again to flow with self.
Don’t tarry and certainly not stay with rotten decaying elements such as matters from the past that you already know well. They do not belong to your life anymore. Stop thinking about the past, old thoughts, memory and certain emotions as anger, blame, criticism, outrage and revenge. Let go, don’t refuse to act in a dynamic way again.

  • Tiger

• Power
• Energy
• Royalty
• Protection
• Generosity
• Illumination
• Unpredictability
• the ability to heal quickly, both physically and emotionally.
Tigers are considered a yang energy. When Tiger enters your life, expect new adventures. It will awaken new passion and power.

  • Iguana

• Contentment
• Awareness
• Confidence
• Expectation
• Contemplation
• Appreciation
Listen to your own intuition above anyone else’s and pay attention to your dreams for they show you what to do.

  • Panda

• Gratitude
• Solitude
• Balance
• Adaptability
• Connection to the Plant Kingdom
• Nomad
• Able to connect the seen and unseen
• Gentle Strength
• Inner sight
Gentle Strength – yet flexibility – quiet, unassuming essence – modest and strong at the same time. Focus is the key to all your endeavors. They eat bamboo thus the symbolism of bamboo is to be of importance. Bamboo combines upright integrity with accommodating flexibility; it has the perfect balance of grace and strength, or the Yin and the Yang. When the young shoots emerge from the roots, they are under the shade of the older bamboo branches. Such a spirit reflects the young respecting the old as well as the old protecting the young.

Just while writing, the meaning and understanding is slowly forming.

When living in Cologne in my young years, the package of me was mainly caged. In my adult years, I kept getting lost sometimes, making faults while learning my lessons. Now the time has come to combine the three stages of life and free me from the cage. Looking back it was not all that bad as it felt when being in it (dream nr. 1) and if I combine the dreams at least the Iguana had enough food to stay alive.

With Iguana there is Contentment with life now, Awareness of all that passed and the lessons learned, Confidence about myself because I mastered so much and know now who I am, Expectation for the years to come, Contemplation on the way to follow and Appreciation of everything and everybody on my way up to now.

If I follow caterpillar and worm I find the actions that will sustain finally me, the tiger and the panda.

PS: One night after the dreams they got a prolongation:

BABY need a new bed and matres because there are also crawling little animals like in my 1st dream.

Father went to town and bought a book about Baby hygiene. :-(

Mother got angry and went to town to buy the bed and bring it home all by herself. She put the bed together in the master bedroom, bathed Baby and put it to sleep in the new bed. Than she commanded Father to put that damned book aside and actually do something: “Burn the bed and matres and the carpeting to get rid of the critters!”



If you dare

2 weeks ago we painted with the group where I do social work together with Setske Jansen-Beek, artist. Besides assisting the people, I also started my own painting. Wanted to show, that you can paint with everything, not only with brushes and you do not need a theme or a picture to imitate. I used my fingers, a sponge and just did.

One of the group members looked at me and sighed: ‘ You dare, I don’t.’

When setting up the exhibition in the church, the pastor said to me: “Looks a lot like a monastery garden, I see the monks walking there, the arches of the path around it. Very nice.”

Stood a bit flabbergasted and had a close look after all paintings were hanging on the wall. He is right, I thought. Remembrance of the past life’s in monastery’s came back. In one of them, I was responsible for the herbal garden…

After the exhibition I will take a better photo.
