The word ‘auspicious’ came to me, when I noticed with amazement that the photo of the sunset over my place becomes much like the Koori (Native Australian) flag when cropped to size for my blog’s header page!
I feel in good company. Native Australians are amongst the most spiritual and intelligent humans of us and always able to consider much else, as they consult one another and always maintained a balance within their communities. Much was brought in for analysis from different knowings and wisdoms within a community, encompassing ancestral, historical & traditional, and of course the current figuring from those in the physical! Much like I am doing here…
As I was born here in Australia, by Aboriginal tradition, that makes me part of the dreaming. ‘The Dreaming’ is the reference, guidance and wisdom used by Native Australians.
I am honoured to be linked to Minjerriba or Stradbroke Island’s community by way of the respect I have for author Kath Walker who came from that land. Her son Denis is an Elder there and I am proud to have signed a treaty with him. I look forward to a visit there again one day. : )
I am so very attached to this beautiful island and its life and colours and flora and fauna after studying to be a wildlife ranger here. I am enormously aware of the energy lines, that are of known great strength here in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland region – the region of the Gubbi Gubbi people. If I am told correctly, the original Australians would only pass through or meet up here, as it was considered too powerful an energy to take up residence in!
So how appropriate is it then, that the header for my blog, took on- in its own form – the symbol used by the ancestry of the very land I am writing on!!! I have shivers down my arms and spine as I type this! PERFECTION! : )
For the moment, it is a header that represents much, and I am looking forward to help from a web design team next week!
