My journey with Louisa Archer. Part 1.
I’ve recently had the opportunity to work with Louisa Archer, I honestly wasn’t sure what would happen, but I knew of Louisa’s incredible work with nature so I jumped at the opportunity.
The past couple of weeks I have been very down on occasions and one day had a complete meltdown. I was stood in my office looking out of the window into the garden and I just burst into tears. Full on snotty ugly crying. Why? I think everything had got to me, and the sight of the beautiful lady pheasant (who I affectionately refer to as Mrs P) choosing to be near me and looking so relaxed just overwhelmed me. She looked me straight in the eyes, calmly laying in her grassy patch until I stopped crying and a sense of calm washed over me. I knew it was her and the unconditional love I felt. I chose Mrs P to be the case study for Louisa but didn’t tell her why.
Totem Spirit Animal Guide
Every time I have meditated to connect with my animal spirit guide, I get more than one and they seem to be different depending on what I need at the time, but this time I set the intention to find my Totem Spirit Animal Guide, I first saw a cheetah, but then that was overpowered by a bald eagle, who I asked three times and they stayed. I then felt as though I had grown wings and was stretching them outwards in reflection of the eagle. I felt our spirits merge and felt as though I was soaring.
I’ve been told by my medium teacher that I currently have a Peregrine Falcon who sits on my left shoulder too. On my walks through the woods I could feel their presence by my sides, it was wonderful and powerful.
For the past couple of days there has been a sparrowhawk visit the garden. I have seen them here before this summer when they were youngsters but not as an adult and twice in two days.
I know Louisa had reservations about how we’d get confirmation from a wild animal, but she connected with Mrs P and sent me the transcript. I knew straight away that she had communicated with her. I felt very emotional reading what she had written. In fact since I had sent Louisa the photo of Mrs P I hadn’t seen her in the garden, but the morning after I received the transcript she reappeared outside and had brought her daughter with her.
Following the transcript we had a zoom meeting to discuss what was written and what it had brought up for me. Louisa told me about some of the dreams she had been having and how the animals visit her while she sleeps. They were very relevant and powerful.
As part of the call we had a short meditation to connect in with Mrs P, and I had the most magical, wonderful experience as she came closer to me, then I could feel her sat on my lap, my hands supporting but not holding her. I could feel the unconditional love between us both as she rested her head on my arm and closed her eyes. It felt like a little respite for her from constantly being alert.
Louisa waved a feather during the call – it was from a hawk that she had found.
After the call, Louisa mentioned about the fluttering of wings and a feeling of lightness, and I felt very calm.
Yesterday morning I had a message from my friend Bev, who I’d been out walking with the week before and I’d picked up pheasant feathers along the way. She’d found one of the feathers randomly on the floor and wondered why. Later on I did my shopping at Tesco, came home, emptied the bag and there was a pheasant feather in the bottom.
I decided to go to a local reservoir for a walk yesterday and driving over to it I thought how amazing it would be if there was a rainbow there like I’d seen the last time I went, but if it was to appear, please could it wait until I arrived.
Well blow me down, there WAS a rainbow!!!! I fair old ran up the hill to get a better view and photograph it. I felt incredibly lucky.
Louisa’s Intention Circle
As part of her work, Louisa set up a beautiful, “intention circle,” to enable her to help with her connection. In the circle was the hawk feather and tarot card as well as various other items.
She told me about how she’d imagined I was bathed in blue light, and saw it as to do with clarity/my voice/expression.
I explained that a couple of weeks ago I had a dream where a blue winged lion was snarling at me and wondered if it might somehow be connected. Louisa suggested that I draw it, which I did.
It’s not very often I remember my dreams, but the night after our zoom call I dreamed of some small blue birds in a tree. I got close enough to take a photo with my phone and they fluttered and landed on my hand and arm. It was so wonderful. Louisa said she too had dreamed of birds that night – Jays, Magpies and Crows. She put some Jay feathers in the intention circle too and felt like colours will work as a channel for me.
Louisa explained that my dream echoed my intention to get closer to wildlife, and that they had heard me and were responding, which I hope with all my heart.
Every day I pick a random card from my spirit oracle deck to see who is around and what message they may want to give me. This morning’s card was the Nightingale, who’s oracle message started with, “In the darkness of night, Nightingale Spirit sings her song of love and hope…You are so loved, and the illumination of the song of the Nightingale spirit calls you to a new level of self-awareness and connection with the Light.” Louisa then pulled a card for me from her deck and it was, “unconditional trust.” Which tied nicely in with the Nightingale’s message of, “love is all around.”
You can’t make this stuff up
So later today I went for a walk with my friend Bev, and when I got home I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a beautifully illuminated rainbow. I dashed outside to get a better photo and saw a sparrowhawk, hovering underneath it. Then there were 2! One of which flew straight over my head.
I can’t quite get my head around what is happening as a result of this journey I’m on with Louisa, but it is magical and amazing and profoundly moving, and I can’t wait to see what happens on the rest of our time together on this path.
