Just finished another non-fiction book! Despite the rather terrifying cover, this one was actually pretty thought-provoking 🌿It’s a thematic analysis of some of the old folklore from the British Isles and how they provide insight into the times in which they were written. There were so many stories I hadn’t heard of before like Thomas the Rhymer, the Lady of Llyn y Fan Fach, the Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnell as well as a few creatures that I was familiar with (selkies, kelpies and brownies, to name a few). There was some interesting discussion about how the themes of these tales have reemerged in modern stories too, from the works of Tolkien and Christina Rossetti, to more recent ones like Spirited Away and Harry Potter. I think I would have appreciated the book just a bit more if I actually knew all the regions of England and Scotland that the author was referring to but nevertheless, it was an interesting read! .

⛩️О:МАГАДОКИ – МИСТИЧЕСКОЕ ВРЕМЯ СУТОК

👹Существует такое понятие, как о:магадоки – термин этот обозначает отрезок времени, когда из тьмы выходят неупокоенные духи умерших (ю:рэй) и всяческие чудовища. Считалось, что время это совпадало с моментом, когда солнце садится, и наступают сумерки.
В это время наблюдали странные и необъяснимые явления. Возможно, такие воззрения объясняются тем, что было трудно рассмотреть лицо человека в сумерках, и все друг другу казались подозрительными (особенно одинокие путники). Многие из историй, которые я расскажу здесь, происходят именно в данное время суток.

👹Иное название этого промежутка – «Время Петуха». Как многие знают, китайская система летоисчисления предполагает разделение годов на 12 ветвей: Крыса, Бык, Тигр, Кролик, Дракон, Змея, Лошадь, Овца, Обезьяна, Петух, Собака и Свинья. Данная система также включала разделение временных промежутков на 12 ветвей, каждая из которых представляла промежуток в два часа. «Времени Петуха» соответствовал период между 17 и 19 часами вечера. Предположительно, Япония адаптировала и начала использовать данную систему во время правления императрицы Суйко (604 г.).

😻Для меня сумерки невероятно спокойное и даже романтичное время, а для вас? #заметки_о_мистической_японии

Archaeological find.
Man's ring composed of a skull, anchor, cross and heart. A special talisman... .
.
.
Anchor - symbol of hope, loyalty, constancy and confidence. Symbol of seafarers, representing 'divine help against the storms of time'.
.
Heart - symbol of everlasting earthly and eternal love in the afterlife.
.
Cross - a cult object dating back to the Stone Age. In Christianity the vertical beam symbolises the relationship between God and man.The horizontal beam of the cross represents the relationship between individuals. It stands for peace and redemption.
.
Skull - symbolic of mortality and protection, of strength, power, fearlessness, wisdom, guidance and surviving through a difficult time. A timelessness memento mori, a reminder that life is fleeting.

One of the Shisa, I love these guardians, they all have such characters. The shisa was brought to Okinawa from China in the 14th century. They ward off evil spirits and were originally used as guardians to residences and shrines. Shisa come in pairs, one with its mouth open to ward off evil spirits, and the other with its mouth closed to keep the good spirits in.

A lot of West Virginian old wives' tales and #superstitions revolve around good or bad luck (represented often most through owls), abnormal eyes signaling evil or an attachment to the #paranormal, and births at specific times or under specific circumstances strangely influencing offspring. "#Halflings Part 1" will be available tomorrow afternoon for order in #Etsy

The church grim. The guardian spirit of the holy church and all who are laid to rest upon it’s grounds. Beware the grim, for misery lingers in his wake. Beware, for he is the omen of death.
