With the horse cultures spread... a lifestyle. | The Spiral Oak | Scoop.it
Often the simplest thing has the greatest significance. And often it passes us by without being noticed. Often evidence of past years becomes the superstition of the present but the Truth was always present even if we did not know it. How important are horses now? How important were they? And as we question we move away from simplicity... from this amazing creature who our ancestors chose to move close to.

Ancient Raven's insight:

It is good to have the right words when we speak about Earth, Minerals and Crystals.  Earth is the Energy upon which we journey, breathe and share Life.  We resonate to Earth because we are part of it. We can use Azurite, Beryl, Calcite, Fluorite, Hematite etc not as minerals but as resonant boards in order to Understand our own Selves.
