I saw a creature that looked like a goblin, looking like some tree spirit, very small but mischievous. I can't say it had pointy ears but rather sticks and branches coming out of it. It had shape-shifted into a tree trunk, looking like it had a belly ready to burst with the wood cracking open. And almost as if from a hollow, a hand came out offering gold coins.
It was a friendly goblin, maybe just an elemental messenger, eager to tell a story. I didn't feel threatened but just a little bit confused. Why gold? Like a leprechaun offering you a glimpse or the possibility of the riches that lie at the end of the rainbow.
Mind you, I had been to an Irish party recently and have Irish-Scottish blood in me. Okay and I never believed in "small goblins" before, although I heard many stories of them and always was a bit skeptical. And due to the fact of me unbelieving my animal spirit guide who came in the form of a black cat shape-shifting into a woman sitting on the side of my bed showing me the same symbol. She seemed frustrated because I didn't want to listen to the small goblin, and with a much more serious attitude, pushed the same golden coins in my face upon her palm, as some offering.
Keep in mind that this is the first time I saw one of my animal totems transform into human form and back. The cat came like a shadow rubbing against the bed and in seconds a beautiful woman with long black sleek hair appeared. She looked disappointed in my unbelief, because I have no problem in believing in ghosts and angels, even demons. But not so easily in shape-shifting legends.
Now both the "cat woman" and the goblin were showing me these coins, pointing at the face imprint on the coin. And I was under the impression: "Yeah right, what is the catch? You want me to take something from you so that you can take something from me. Do you really think I am so stupid? Nothing is for free in the spirit world, making bargains with the spirit realm."
I do believe that this was a message: that guardians, as well as demons, can shape-shift to convey a message. My guardian appeared as a goblin in the shape of a tree denoting the Tree of Knowledge wherein spiritual riches are to be found, and the head imprint had something to do with choosing who I will worship, as money is only as good as its decorations, maybe the shape of God's head instead of some worldly president's. And as for the cat, I have no doubt that there is always a cat spirit around me.
Maybe they didn't want to make a deal, just wanting to show me where the real riches are to be found. Yet again, if you eat of the Tree of Life, you have to do some work for the source as well.
A Bogart is a closet spirit. One that is angry. Bogart's Form when "Brownies" get angry! A Brownie is literally the helper of the house. Ever noticed anything shiny that has gone missing? Or have you ever left any sweetie treat out and it not be there the next morning? I thought this woman who was telling me this was trippin' or something! That is until she came in and Cleaned my house of any bad spirits! She took a sage sponging stick to clean my house... Including every nook and cranny! Including my cupboards! In our Kitchen we have a cupboard that we never use... In fact there is about a foot in between this cupboard and our refrigerator. This is why we never use it, because it is pretty much a wasted space. A 4 foot long cabinet door I guess you could use as a small pantry if you wanted to. However, Our trash Bin sits in between this cupboard and Our fridge. So it is pretty much sealed, with the trash bin wedged between it and the refrigerator! So when she was cleaning our house, we walked behind her with a voice and video recorder just to see if we could "get anything" No sooner did she open that cabinet door did her sage stick burst in flames at the tip. The smoke was gone and replaced with Flame. She said, HMM... BOGART!
After the cleaning the was done, I asked her what she meant by "BOGART?" She explained! Later we opened that cabinet door and saw a half eaten, Moldy Hershey's kiss. And we also found my roommates chrome colored house key. Amongst other shiny things. So I believe the whole Bogart, Brownie theory! Because how ever would that stuff have gotten in that cabinet, if no one ever went in there... And no one ever used it for anything? As for tree spirits. This woman told me, when ever you say to a tree, "Oh wow, took at THAT tree... I wish I could just take it home with me." And Bam, a tree spirit has clung to you. The only way to get the tree spirit off of you is by actually taking it home and hugging a tree. So I tried this theory out. Going to a number of trees over a course of a few days, and saying it. All taking it home and hugging one tree. Afterwards, I took a picture of the tree in my back yard, low and behold the number of so called "tree Spirits" I "took home" with me, were seen in orbs around the tree I hugged. I did this with 5 different trees that I found in parks or such. When I snapped the picture, there were 5 orbs in it! Weird huh?
