Sometimes I feel like drawing a bunch of animals in a cluster.
A whole lot of foxes.
Or in this case.
Bunches of parrots.

They all feel quite different, despite being family.

For the first time in a while, I've started including keyword meanings again.


Orange-Bellied Parrot as Totem // (Neophema chrysogaster) // Critically Endangered
Original available at Etsy.

‘Don’t expect to see me in the wild. You’re probably going to miss me for two reasons – I’m exceedingly rare, and I love to look like my environment. There’s wisdom in not always standing out, isn’t there? Except that I’m such a rare gem, some people go to great lengths to see me and meet me. What I teach over time has shifted, and now I invite you to seek what is rare and hidden in yourself, and decide if it’s something you want to gift to others, or keep as a private gift for yourself. I also share the wisdom of moving regularly from place to place to find nourishment. You’ll always have a firm sense of where your home is, but that doesn’t mean you can’t roam, does it? I can share with you the wisdom of the coast and grasses – like me, they may seem easy to overlook – but a lifetime’s worth of esoteria hides in the places you least expect.’

Keywords:

Blending into the background. Coastal wisdom and magic. Connecting with grass and grass-seed energy. Camouflage. Migration. A life less ordinary. Sound the alarm. Requiring concessions. Connection to flame and burned places. Offerings of fire. Calling the sacred flame. Sensitivity to climate change. Being choosy over partners. The wisdom of Air and Fire while staying strongly connected to the Earth. Balance. Connection to the sacral chakra. Everyday beauty.















Pale Headed Rosella as Totem // (Platycercus adscitus)
Original available at Etsy.

‘What a bold friend I can be, if you wish to get to know me. You may not always like my abrupt or aggressive way of handling situations, but I know how to share my wisdom and I’ll know how to share it with you. I teach the nourishment found in eucalyptus energy, and what it is to find wisdom and growth in the dark. I enjoy a balance between the light and the dark and I eschew a black and white way of looking at the world. I hope you’re ready to have your opinions challenged! I’m not as friendly as other parrots, and I won’t pretend to be your best friend as a teacher, but I’ll certainly love you fiercely, and you’ll never forget your time with me.’

Keywords:

Working with aggression. What lurks in the trees. Tree magic and wisdom. Unusual displays of affection. Connection to Air and Fire, balanced well by Water. Colour therapy. Reaching goals with ease. Flying over obstacles. Connection to the throat chakra. Eucalyptus magic and wisdom. Challenging dichotomies. Choosing to rest and find healing in the dark. Woodland magic. Everyday beauty.















Pesquet's Parrot as Totem // (Psittrichas fulgidus)
Original available at Etsy.

‘People look at me and usually see two things – first, they see my glorious red plumage and I suppose this is why some people only wish to hunt me. Second, they see my bald head and hooked beak and wonder if I am a fierce hunter. In fact, I carry the secret of fruit in my blood and bones, I eat almost only figs, and I know what it is to live off what the trees provide! I am so much more than first impressions, and so are you, I suspect. Learn why people misunderstand you, or why you misunderstand yourself! I can show you the joy of being with many of your own kin, or being with only one or two loved ones. Let me teach you about the nourishment to be found in the bountiful rainforests, without and within. Come let life be about joy and brightness!’

Keywords:

Fig wisdom and symbolism. Misunderstandings. Brightness. To find joy with many and a few. Ambivert. First impressions are sometimes wrong. Beauty. Colour. The wisdom of Air and Fire. Connection to the root chakra. Following sources of nourishment and nutrition. Moving to where the action is. Everyday beauty. Friendship. Rainforest wisdom. Mountain wisdom.

Oh, they're gorgeous!

I am particularly fond of the orange-bellied parrot.

A bit low on spoons, but just wanted to say that these are truly lovely. Orange bellied parrot is going to bring a lot of joy to someone -- just a strong sense of that, honestly.

Hey! (waves)

Pretties!

When I did the conservation and land management course, most of our practical stuff was done in one of the Orange-Bellied Parrots' potential habitat areas, though they hadn't actually been seen there in years. It was almost like they were ours, even though we share them with Tassie and they don't even spent time at the site we were working on; because they are so very rare, and that site was one of a handful of places they could feed because the habitat for the plants they feed off is not valuable to most people.
