 Spiritual Messages

 
There was a prophecy given to us by the white buffalo calf woman stating that when the white buffalo came back to earth and was seen by humanity it was then time to come together and live once again in harmony. It is a time to support, honor and love one another. Remember how to be respectful to all of life, while following your own path to your heart’s desire.

There have been several white buffalo born over the last decade, and more and more we are seeing other animals also appear in white.

It is common belief among the ancients that moths are carriers of spiritual messages from your angels, spirit guides, ancestors, and the spirit world.

This is the message that was shown to me, and it is an honor to pass it on to you. Many Blessings.

The Real Secret

The word spirit comes from the Latin word spiritus, meaning “breath”. Spirit is the breath of life. The word intelligent is from the Latin, intelligentia, meaning “choosing between”. Spiritual Intelligence is our ability to choose between spirit and ego. We consciously practice spiritual intelligence when we intentionally choose spirit over ego, love over fear, and the highest good for all over selfish interest..

The Voice of Spirit is the voice of our Higher Self. My Higher Self is that which has never left its creator. All Higher Selves are connected as One. I connect to my Higher Self through my soul. My soul is my dream self — that part of me that has wandered through countless life experiences trying to find its way back home to the Higher Self. My soul desires to wake up and remember who it is..

I develop my spiritual intelligence when I join with my soul and choose to identify with my Higher Self, my Spirit. In this state of identification I realize that I am not my body. I am not my gender or my profession. I am not my ethnicity nor am I my religion. I am not my life situation, my illnesses, my financial position, or my status in society. I am not my problems and I am not my past. Spiritual identification has me detaching from all forms and experiences and seeing myself as a spiritual being in this human experience..

Many people in spiritual circles like to call on angels, Jesus, or other beings of light. This is good. Many others make use of rituals, tools, methodologies, and programs to learn and grow. This can be good, too. As we develop spiritually we come to realize that we are the light. You and I are the light that we seek. There is nothing we can seek that we don’t already have within us. There is no person, program, or methodology that can do it for us. Nothing, of itself, will bring you the light or awaken you. It is your intention and willingness that that leads you to the power that lies within you..

This is the real “secret”. There is nothing out there you need. Love, peace, prosperity, and wholeness are already within you. When you trust in this completely, you have all that you need in the physical. When we are hung up on the form–the car, the house, the bank account, the great body, the great relationship– we make the form our source. The source, God, is within us, and is always available. We are not separate from God, and that is the secret..

We are born into this world not knowing the secret. If we knew it, we wouldn’t need to be here. Yet, we are here, so there is something to be learned. Both our tendencies to live from spirit and our tendencies live from ego are manifested in the physical world by way of the Law of Attraction..

The film and the book, The Secret, is an inspiring piece of work about the Law of Attraction. Certainly you can use the Law of Attraction to build the life you desire. It should be noted however, that both Hitler and Stalin successfully used the Law of Attraction. The movie indicates that wealthy power brokers have always used the Law of Attraction. This is where spiritual intelligence comes in. When you create, are you creating from spirit or from ego? ..

Another point The Secret makes is: “Anyone can do this.” Do what? Create a $4 million home? Own several luxury cars? Live a wealthy lifestyle? If this is true, then are we to conclude that those of us who are not enjoying these riches have something wrong with our thinking? On this basis we would have to make Donald Trump one of our primary spiritual teachers, and Bill Gates would be the world guru..

Each of us has an individual purpose to be played out in this life. For some, having great wealth is part of their purpose. For others, it may not be. Some people will practice changing their thoughts and emotions and find quick success. Others may practice for twenty or thirty years and find no change in what they have manifested. Neither scenario conclusively tells us where someone is in consciousness. The relationship between cause and effect is not linear. It is unlikely that you will think a negative thought today and the next day something bad will happen to you. Consciousness is made up of your awareness, understanding, and knowledge (or lack of). The physical manifestations in your life are not predictable to the ego mind..

For example, you may have a deep issue with unforgiveness. At the same time you are healthy, wealthy, and have good relationships. In spite of your wealth and health, you feel badly. In another instance, your unforgiveness may play out as indebtedness, poor health, or hurtful relationships, or all three. In truth, you don’t know what you signed up for when you came to this life. Cancer may manifest from deep anger, or maybe you signed up for the cancer experience to learn something else. Our life experiences are not rewards or punishments. They are opportunities for growth that we have agreed to on another level of consciousness..

I have heard people say, “I would rather be unhappy and rich than unhappy and poor.” Unhappy is unhappy. If you are very unhappy, wealth can provide plenty of distractions that keep you right where you are. Whereas, if you have a load of debt to contend with, you may be motivated to do the work. It is possible to be deeply indebted and ecstatically happy. If you can maintain that happiness the debt will probably dissolve in time. Whether it does or not is not the point. The important thing is that you have found inner wealth, peace and joy within, and that you have stopped identifying yourself with your manifestations. No one is luckier than you. The danger of finding wealth in the physical before you have inner wealth is that you will think the physical wealth makes you special..

Great wealth, excellent health, and beautiful relationships are wonderful to experience, but they are forms. Forms are effects. It is the cause that you focus on as a spiritually intelligent being. At some point in the spiritual development process, having nice things seems important. Further on your path, you just don’t care about stuff anymore..

Being anti-materialist, promoting the image that you are just not into stuff, is no different than the rich person who identifies himself with his wealth. The attention is still on the form. Being “non-materialistic” doesn’t make you special. Whether you have a lot of stuff or not is irrelevant. What counts is your ability to detach from it and to recognize that you really don’t own anything. You are not your stuff (or lack of stuff). You are a spiritual being on the road home to your Higher Self..

The secret to your inner joy and wealth is your spiritual intelligence, your ability to choose between spirit and ego. There is a beautiful three step process based on a book called The Song of Prayer from A Course in Miracles. In the first step, you give all of your goals, your problems, and your concerns to God as a gift. Once you have emptied yourself, you join in song with God. That is, you identify with your Higher Self and immerse yourself in its love. In this state you know that you are blessed and loved unconditionally. The third step is called the Echo. That is, miracles show up to remedy problems or that help you achieve your goals. The real miracle is your ability to let go and identify with spirit. This creates inner wealth, inner health, and inner love..

We are 100 % responsible for our lives. This means that opportunities abound for us to respond by shifting our attention to our spiritual identity. Responsibility is not blame. Responsibility is power and opportunity. It comes down to this: in this very moment, who is running your life? Is it spirit or is it ego? Is it love or is it fear? If you are feeling anything less than peace, your ego is having its influence. Remind yourself that you are not your body, not your situation. You are a spiritual being. In this lies your strength. In this thought you know that low self esteem, self condemnation, and blaming others are illusions. They are just stories you have told yourself..

Be the real you. If you knew that you were a powerful spiritual being, how would you stand? How would you carry yourself? What would be the expression on your face? What kinds of thoughts would you allow into your mind? If you knew that you were unconditionally loved, how would you act? What words would you use? What would be your tone of voice? This is one way you practice spiritual intelligence. You become aware, and then you become who you really are..

This awareness, understanding, and knowledge allows you to approach life with confidence. The essence of the successful use of the Law of Attraction is confidence. When you approach life with utmost confidence, your world responds. Confidence based solely on externals, or even based on knowledge of psychology, is fragile. Confidence based on spiritual strength is power..

This is the secret the world has kept from you–that you are God expressing as you. Each moment that you choose to live from your spirit is a powerful and expansive moment. Each moment you make this choice you influence others. You are a light. You are a blessing to the world..

Working with Herbs for Ascension

Herbs and Single Tones Language of Light Herbs by Sherry

1. FORGIVENESS
Herb:  Echinacea Purpurea
Echinacea Purpurea assists initiates in releasing cellular trauma during the transmutative process of ascension. In essence, this herb assists initiates in the act of biological forgiveness. Cellular trauma is recorded in a particular biochemistry that is often related to viruses and disease. As such trauma is released, it is not unusual for some initiates to become ill or feel ill. Echinacea will assist in boosting the immune systems at such times for a more rapid biological transcendence through the trauma.
2. STRUCTURE
Herb: Saw Palmetto
Saw Palmetto will assist initiates in ascending into the a new structure upon a biological level, which is crystalline. Saw Palmetto assists with the transmutative process during which the cell re-composes itself into a new genetic structure. In a deep way, Saw Palmetto is acting as a bridge to assure that the new crystalline genetic structure becomes physical in the act of biological ascension. Those who have difficulty bringing the ascension into the physical may therefore call upon our kingdom for support, or ingest our herb if one is so guided from within.

3. POWER
Herb: Ginger
Ginger assists initiates in increasing the metabolism of the digestion and cells in act of ascension. Ascension requires that crystalline cells continue to consume more and more sugar as the entire form moves up in vibration. Ginger will trigger the cells to consume more so that one’s biology may continue to ascend. Ginger is a good tonic herb that can be added to the diet daily if desired.

4. COMPASSION
Herb: Chamomile
Chamomile assists in opening the heart and processing the pain inherent in ascension to a biological level. Chamomile will comfort initiates in one’s deepest moments of seeming darkness that one is transcending. In the biology, pain is associated with toxic substances one is releasing. Chamomile will attach to such substances and assist them in being removed through the waste management systems in ascension. Chamomile is a good tonic herb to have daily if desired.

5. BREATH OF LIFE
Herb: Feverfew
Feverfew will assist initiates in learning to breathe deeply to collect the oxygen required by an ascending crystalline form to subsist, and to continue to ascend. Conscious breath is an autonomic nervous system function that was long lost in the fall of man. Feverfew will also assist in the return of the biological mechanism and the repair of the brain stem so that ascending initiates will experience an ongoing ability to consciously breathe. For those who experience shortness of breath, one may call upon our kingdom for support, or may ingest the herb if so guided from within.

6. NON-CONDITIONAL LOVE
Herb: Nettle
Nettle will assist initiates in transcending the ownership patterning that leads to attachment upon a biological level. Biological ownership is equated to certain “toxic” biochemical substances that cause a density of form and a lower vibration due to an ongoing loss of chi upon a molecular level. Nettle assists in clearing out such substances so that one no longer loses chi and may ascend upwards in biological vibration. If one has been exposed to toxic chemicals in one’s life prior to ascension, one may call upon our kingdom for support; or one may ingest the herb as one is so guided from within.

7. FREEDOM
Herb: Lobelia
Lobelia assists initiates in transcending biological level slavery. Each is enslaved in the seeming requirement to provide enough to subsist; so much so that it is a deep seated fear that one may not have enough. Lobelia assists ascending initiates in releasing the fear of not having enough, allowing balanced giving and receiving to become the new foundation one ascends into, after which there is always enough. Upon a cellular level, Lobelia assists with proper distribution of blood sugar making sure all cells within the crystalline form are fed. If one is having difficulty with portions of the form failing to develop or that have lost development one had previously ascended into, one may call upon our kingdom; or ingest the herb is one is so guided form within.

8. DIVINE UNION

 Herb: Evening Primrose
Evening Primrose will assist initiates in releasing the biological fear of separation. Separation is a biological phenomenon in which entire cells or organs may be cut off from communication with the rest of the form due to decay or disease. Evening primrose allows all parts of the form to learn to communicate and relate to one another again in ascension. If one has a part of the form that is failing to become crystalline, one may call upon our kingdom for assistance; or ingest the herb if one is so guided from within.

9. UNITY CONSCIOUSNESS
Herb: Angelica

Angelica assists ascending initiates in the redistribution of resources upon a biological level so that all cells receive enough sugar, water and oxygen to subsist; along with the amino acids, lipids or minerals required to transmute to the crystalline form. In essence, Angelica assists initiates in embodying unity consciousness biology. If one is having difficulty with certain cells embracing the unity blueprint, one may call upon our kingdom; or ingest the herb is one is so guided from within.

10. NON-CONDITIONAL GOVERNANCE
Herb: Lady’s Mantle
Lady’s Mantle will assist ascending initiates in the development of the thymus gland and the pituitary gland. The thymus is a master gland that handles all autonomic functions of the form, including blood flow, blood pressure, waste management, and cellular metabolism. The pituitary is the master ascension gland that develops 1000 nodes over time, each of which is necessary to the ascent of the entire form. If one is having difficulty in the proper development of the thymus or pituitary in ascension, one may call upon our kingdom, or ingest the herb if one is so guided from within.

11. JURISDICTION
Herb: Red Clover
Red Clover assists each organ in assuming the function that it is required to do to support a crystalline cellular structure. Red Clover assists in anchoring the blueprint for the unity based system for an organ by organ, gland by gland set of instructions. Those who are having difficulty with a particular organ or gland in ascension may therefore call upon our kingdom, or ingest the herb is one is so guided from within.

12. HOPE
Herb: Skullcap
Skullcap assists with balancing the hormones associated with the nervous system and brain so that ascending initiates may maintain the right amounts of all substances required to ascend. Often times depression is a biological issue in which the biochemistry in the nervous system is off causing either highs or lows of an emotional sense. Skullcap strives to balance the chemistry so that one remains in a greater level of inner peace in ascension. If one feels depressed, call upon our kingdom and if guided, ingest the herb for a time.

13. PEACE
Herb: Chaparral
Chaparral assists initiates in ascending into biological peace. Biological peace can be equated with a system that is free of viruses and agents that destroy the biology. Chaparral assists in transmuting all viruses and bacteria harmful into agents that either support ascension or are pushed out of the system through the waste management functions. If one is overrun with an infection in ascension, call upon our species or ingest the herb is one is so called from within.

14. ABUNDANCE
Herb: Comfrey
Comfrey assists in the balance of chi and electrolytes required in the form any given day, week or month of ascension. Upon an energetic level, Comfrey assists in assuring that there is chi running through all channels, and will assist in unblocking unstuck meridians. Upon a biological level, Comfrey assures that there are the proper salts in the system to assure adequate lubrication and non-dehydration. If one finds oneself lacking in chi, call upon our kingdom, or take the herb if guided from within.

15. PROSPERITY
Herb: Urva Ursi
Urva Ursi assists initiates with releasing excessive fluids and salt no longer required by the emerging crystalline cellular structure. Urva ursi also assists in the release of toxic substances through the urine, and in the regeneration of the bladder and kidneys of the form. Upon an emotional level, Urva ursi assists initiates in letting go of the past and embracing the new foundation that ascension brings. If having trouble letting go, or difficulty with the bladder or kidneys in ascension, call upon our kingdom, or ingest the herb is one is so guided from within.

16. MAGNITUDE
Herb: Yarrow
Yarrow assists ascending initiates in anchoring the ascension blueprint for the entire form from one’s ancient red ancestry. Each initiate has a history in one’s ancestry of a crystalline form; it is the purpose of yarrow to assist in uncovering and decoding this blueprint making it available to those who are ascending at this time in history. If one is having difficulty with one’s overall ascension grid work, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb is so called from within.

17. INTUITION
Herb: Horse Chestnut
Horse Chestnut assists ascending initiates in opening to the dreamtime realities that surround oneself. Upon a biological level, such an opening is created through a particular set of nodes upon the wild gland which as they develop, augment one’s sensory perception. One may call upon our kingdom to support the opening to the nonphysical realities, or one may ingest the herb to support the development of this particular part of the brain in ascension.

18. FUNCTION
Herb: Osha
Osha assists initiates in standing in the truth that one’s ascension translates into within the physical life dance. Upon a biological level Osha supports the ascension into one’s biological truth from one’s ancient red ancestry. Each initiate has a unique truth, and this translates into a particular bandwidth of vibration that is expressed energetically as well as within the biological organism. If one is having difficulty discerning one’s truth, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if one is so called from within.

19. PERSEVERANCE
Herb: Vitex
Vitex assists initiates in pushing forward in the continuous biological transmutation process of ascension. Ascension requires a certain stamina that is cellular and physical, and vitex will assist in revitalizing the system so that one does not cease moving forward in any given phase of ascension. Upon an emotional level, Vitex will assist in the reparation of the will centers including the will to ascend. Call upon our kingdom if one feels that they have lost the will to live, or ingest the herb if so guided from within.

20. STEALTH
Herb: Astragalus
Astragalus assists the ascending initiate in holding one’s boundaries so that one may continue to ascend. Upon a biological level, boundaries equate to the division of form between ascended and non-ascended portions of the form that remain in decay or scar tissue. Such portions of form are separated off until they can ascend so that they do not cause deterioration of the whole. Viruses and other toxic substances are quarantined so that they do minimal damage. This Astragalus assists with, and if one finds oneself in need of support in holding one’s boundaries, call upon our kingdom, or ingest the herb if so guided from within.

21. CONSCIOUSNESS
Herb: Devil’s Claw
Devil’s Claw assists ascending initiates in awakening non-crystalline cells so that they may ascend into a new blueprint. In a sense, our kingdom supports the return of consciousness that is cellular and biological in nature to all ascending species at this time in history. If one is having difficulty ascending a particular part of the form, call upon our species for support, or ingest the herb as one is so guided from within.

22. INTERNAL
Herb: Bloodroot
Bloodroot assists initiates in learning to consciously dream and access dreamtime so that one develops and internal relationship with one’s inner allies. Bloodroot will also assist the body in entering a deep sleep state to rest. Ascending bodies require rest for the purposes of regeneration. As the consciousness retracts, the body may realign without the confines of the persona and the stress of one’s daily life. If one requires rest or desires to open to dreamtime, call upon our kingdom, or ingest the herb is one is so called from within.

23. EXTERNAL
Herb: Oregon Grape Root

Oregon Grape Root assists in balancing the busy outer activities with the internal need to spiritual quest upon the path of ascension. Upon a biological level, Oregon Grape Root assists in the metabolism of oxygen into all cells, but in particular into the nervous system and brain. Oxygen deprivation is one manner that humanity lost consciousness long ago; and therefore it is our species purpose to assist in the assimilation and transportation of oxygen to all parts of the ascending body. If one feels oxygen deprived or in other terms tired, or mentally drained, call upon our kingdoms or ingest the herb if so called from within.

24. ONENESS
Herb: Lady’s Slipper
Lady’s Slipper will assist initiates in experiencing the joy and communion between body, soul and earth, and with the nature kingdoms including the plant, animal and mineral species. Upon a biological level, Lady’s Slipper will assist in assuring that there are enough minerals to all parts of the form requiring such to sustain the cell life, or ascend the region of the form. If one is having difficulties with the ascending bone structure or bone marrow, Lady’s Slipper can assist. Call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if one is so called from within.

25. TRUTH
Herb: Corydalis
Corydalis assists ascending initiates in separating from others so that one can more greatly discern one’s own truth in the path of ascension. Upon a biological level, Corydalis will assist the immune system in developing to produce all 18 forms of white blood cells required to support a crystalline form. If having problems with the development of the immune system in ascension, call upon our species or ingest the herb if guided from within.

26. ACTION
Herb: Blue Cohosh
Blue Cohosh assists initiates in taking action to bring about change in the life dance that supports ascension. Upon a biological level, Blue Cohosh assists with the elimination of wastes through the intestinal tract, and the development of an ascending digestive system and waste management system. If one is having difficulty eliminating, embracing change or letting go, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if so called from within.

27. FLUIDITY
Herb: Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera assists initiates in becoming fluid in their life dance, dancing only with those that serve one’s ascent in any given interlude or exchange. Upon a biological level, Aloe Vera assists in the development of mucous like substances that allow for fluidity of movement throughout the ascending biology; whether that movement be food through the digestive system; fluid through the veins and arteries or lymph; or fluid that suspends the brain in the cranial cavity. If one is having difficulty with fluidity, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if so guided from within.

28. PURPOSE
Herb: Shepherd’s Purse
Shepherd’s Purse will assist initiates in staying on track in the purpose that one has taken form to fulfill upon. Upon a biological level, Shepherd’s Purse will assist in the development of the spleen and develop marrow to produce crystalline blood and all components therein. Crystalline blood has a different biochemical structure that is far more efficient at carrying agents either to feed the cellular structure or toxins to be disposed of either through the pores of the skin or the waste management systems of the form. If one is having difficulty with one’s blood in ascension, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb as one is so guided from within.

29. INTEGRITY
Herb: Burdock
Burdock will assist initiates in learning to operate in integrity with one’s truth as an ascending being. Upon a physical level, Burdock assists with the assimilation of nutrients through the intestinal tract, and the development of a vegetarian tract for those species that consume flesh at this time in history. The ascending intestinal tract has stronger enzymes that are secreted in small pockets to assure that food is adequately broken down and the nutrients therein absorbed. Call upon us if one is having digestive problems or take the herb if so guided from within.

30. BALANCE
Herb: Milk Thistle
Milk Thistle will assist initiates in remaining in balance in the dance of life. Upon a biological level, Milk Thistle assists in balancing the ratios of fat to protein to mineral to sugar required to hold a crystalline form together, and through the process of ascension. For those who tend to gain too much weight or fat, or not expand enough in ascension, our kingdom can assist in coming to balance so that one hold’s one’s vibration in ease. Call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb as one is so guided from within.

31. HONOR
Herb: Chickweed
Chickweed will assist initiates in learning to honor oneself and all others in the dance of life. Upon a biological level, chickweed assists the ascending form coming to a state of biological honor, in which each cell, each gland, each organ and each system receives what is required to be sustained and continue to ascend. If one finds that portions of the form are deprived, call upon our kingdom for support, or ingest the herb if so guided from within.

32. DREAM
Herb: Horsetail
Horsetail assists initiates in learning to consciously dream weave or intend their heart’s desire. Upon a biological level, horsetail assists with the stepping down of one’s biological dream for ascension into physicality. The form is a giant receptor for a dream that steps down into form; horsetail assures that the dream for one’s ascension steps down into physicality each step of the way. If one is having difficulty manifesting one’s dream for biological ascension, call upon our kingdom, or ingest the herb if so guided from within.

33. ILLUSION
Herb: Poke Root
Poke Root will assist initiates in lifting the veils of illusion so that one may more clearly see the truth of the matter. Upon a biological level, Poke Root assists in the detoxification of mucous that gums up the ascending form. An ascending form is continuously releasing mucous filled with unneeded substances in the new genetic structure. If the mucous builds up too much, disease or cancer can be the result instead of ascension. If one finds oneself filled with too much mucous at any point in ascension, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if so called from within.

34. PASSION
Herb: Passion Flower
Passion Flower will assist initiates in discovering their passion for life. Upon a biological level, passion flower assists with the development of the crystalline nervous system. The crystalline nervous system is a different biochemical formation that runs not upon epinephrine or nor epinephrine which gives the flight or fright response or feeling prior to ascension. The crystalline nervous system is far more relaxed and at ease, more akin to how one feels after a runner’s high or after consuming chocolate; alert, energized but relaxed. There are many stages of nervous system development, and sometimes nerves will spasm causing back aches. Call upon our kingdom at such times or ingest the herbs as one is so guided from within.

35. CREATIVITY
Herb: Mothers Wort (Bell Wort)
Mothers Wort will assist initiates in the movement of the creative energy to assist one’s dream in stepping down into form. Upon a physical level, Mothers Wort will assist with the transcription of the DNA into physicality. If there are distortions in the DNA, Mothers Wort will assist in uncovering the karmic cause of the distortion, and then rectify it. If one is having difficulty with a portion of their genetic encoding for ascension, call upon our kingdom, or ingest the herb if one is so guided from within.

36. SEXUAL ENERGY
Herb: Wild Yam
Wild Yam will assist initiates in owning their sexual energy flow and kundahlini energy system necessary to the act of ascension. Upon a biological level, Wild Yam assists with the assimilation of the element of fire. Fire flows freely through the meridians from the earth mother feeding the cells with the chi necessary to assist. Fire also flows from each cell which in the act of cell metabolism creates fire that contributes to the vibration of the whole. Wild Yam assists in the management of fire so that all cells within the form are warmed. If one has issues with fire or sexual wounds from the past, call upon our kingdom for support, or ingest the herb if one is so called from within.

37. FRIENDSHIP
Herb: Cascara Sagrada
Cascara Sagrada will assist initiates in allowing the friends to come and go in the dance of life within ascension. Upon a physical level, Cascara Sagrada will assist with the elimination of the waste management systems, and in particular the large intestine. In ascension, it is important to keep the bowels moving so that the toxins do not build up slowing down the process of ascension. If one is constipated, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if one is so guided from within.

38. COMMUNION
Herb: Sorrel

Sorrel will assist initiates in learning to commune with soul, earth and nature for guidance and healing. Upon a biological level, Sorrel assists with cellular communication. There is an intricate modality of cellular communication that is biochemical in nature. Such biochemical communication develops and is managed by the thymus and pituitary glands, and includes messages to increase or decrease the metabolism along with when to produce more blood cells or varying kinds, along with a host of chemistry required for neural function along with limbic function. If one is having difficulty with communication upon a biological level, call upon our kingdom for support or ingest the herb if so guided from within.

39. DANCE OF LIFE
Herb: Valerian Root
Valerian Root will assist one in embracing one’s life dance in the moment and as it is. Upon a biological level, Valerian Root assists in the relaxation of the muscular structure so that the structure and function of all body parts is sustained. If one is having muscle spasms in ascension, or feels stressed, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if one is so guided from within.

40. COMMUNITY
Herb: Black Cohosh

Black Cohosh will assist humans in supporting the greater good of the whole in attempting to build community with one another. Upon a biological level, Black Cohosh assists with all parts of the form sustaining their particular function in contribution to the whole, plus the orchestration of the whole into a symbiotic set of relationships that sustain the life and health and well being of the ascending form. If one finds oneself ascending into disease, call upon our kingdom and ingest the herb if one is so called from within.

41. HONESTY
Herb: Alum Root (Alumstone)

Alum Root will assist initiates in honest communication without pretenses or masks, and in learning to love oneself as one is in the moment. Upon a biological level, Alum Root assists in the dismantling of old systems and the movement into new systems that support the form in entering the regenerative paradigm. Alum Root is directly involved in the new systems, such as the Joy Hormonal system development in ascending forms. If one is having difficulty with the new systems, organs and glands manifesting in ascension, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if guided from within.

42. COMMUNICATION
Herb: Hops
Hops assists initiates in learning to communicate with one another and one’s guidance in ascension. Upon a biological level, Hops assists in the development of 18 nodes in the nervous system that allow for greater sensitivity to the etheric body. As initiates become more sensitive to the etheric, one can detect blockages long before they manifest in the physical by choosing to clear the associated karma. Call upon our kingdom if one has difficulty sensing the etheric body, or take the herb if so guided from within.

43. UNSEEN WORLDS
Herb: Cramp Bark
Cramp Bark will assist initiates in opening to communicate with the unseen worlds around oneself. Upon a biological level, Cramp Bark assists with the regeneration of the reproductive systems which evolve to produced many new hormones necessary to regenerate the cellular structure and youth the form. If one finds oneself aging rather than de-aging in ascension, call upon our kingdom for support or take the herb if so guided from within.

44. UNSPOKEN WORLDS
Herb: Datura
Datura assists initiates in translating one’s current language into the language of light so that all species may understand oneself. Upon a biological level, Datura assists in the development of command hormones that instruct the various systems within the form to a more greatly refined degree necessary for a regenerative biology. If one is having difficulty with a particular system within the ascending biology of the form, call upon our kingdom for assistance, or take the herb if so guided from within.

45. UNDERWATER WORLDS
Herb: Flax
Flax assists in lubricating the form with the necessary fats that suspend movement through the various systems within the form. There are 18 forms of fat in a crystalline structure, and each performs a different modality of lubrication necessary to the sustenance of the whole. Flax assists in anchoring the blueprint for all forms of crystalline lipids and then assuring that there is enough of each to retain lubrication throughout the form. If one is having difficulty with lubrication in ascension, which may be symptomatic with dry skin, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb if so guided from within.

46. WORLDS UPON THE LAND
Herb: Echinacea
Echinacea assists the ascending form in the development of the crystalline immune system. The crystalline immune system is a more complex structure of 18 forms of white blood cells, each of which has the capacity to destroy and consume various toxic substances from waste matter to viruses to bacteria that would destroy the form otherwise. If one is having difficulty with the development of the immune system in ascension, call upon our kingdom or ingest the herb as one is so called from within.

47. HUMAN SPECIES
Herb: Golden Seal

Spirit of the Trees

“To be one with the trees is to know Life within your own spirit”
– Chief Sequoia

In lush valleys and forests, where majestic Guardians stand tall, their awesome beauty a reminder of ancient settlements, the mystical realm of “Standing People” communicate a language and await our arrival. Perhaps because of their constant presence we take them for granted. Trees, however, are a vital and nurturing force representing the fabric of all communities providing us with nourishment, a constant source of medicine, and the very air we breathe is improved by their presence.

Trees hold a special significance as both practical providers and powerful spiritual presences and have witnessed life on earth over large expanses of time. Spirit breathes aliveness into their mystical individuality. These magnificent “Guardians,” belong to the Earth Element and are ruled by Gabriel. In many cultures a tree symbolizes the world center, where heaven and earth touch, where all times and places converge. For this reason trees are considered sacred and provide a focal point for meditation, enlightenment, guidance and prayer and if we are open to their energy, will converse with us.

Jeffrey Goelitz writes:
”The purest essence comes from the oldest trees who have peaked developmentally in their being-ness. Older trees communicate to younger trees a vibrancy that supports and encourages their growth. There is an intelligence on the other side from which life springs. The force of gravity helps us to live. Through gravity we receive light from the sky. Gravity is the bridge to the other world where earth connects to the sky. Trees act like magnetic funnels. Through their centers they draw heavily on the light. [The Mother of the Forest and I] have a deep resonance of peace. Our ages, sizes, and electromagnetic fields are very much alike. Together, along with other elder redwoods, we watch over the forest with our etheric radiation. Our rays interlace together in a way distinct from other trees because of our similarities.”

Alder: Tree of Resurrection
Symbolic of Protection and Oracular Powers

Alders are members of the Birch family found along lowland rivers, growing with Aspens, Poplars, and Willows. The Alder is a most unusual tree, loving water yet extremely flammable making the Alder, a revered tree, as it combines the elements of water and fire. In folklore the Alder is known as the “King of the Water” with the “Willow” tree as its Queen. This association is due to their natural habitat near lakes, rivers and streams. The Alder is the bridge between water and fire, sea and land, winter and spring.

The wood of the Alder has many uses. When young it is brittle and pliable, easily worked but as the tree ages, its wood becomes tinted and veined. Due to the Alders resistance to water, in times gone by it was used in the construction of bridges and though it may surprise you, bridges erected centuries ago remain standing and continue to be a means of transportation today.

In Celtic folklore it was believed that doorways to the fairy realm were concealed within the Alder’s trunk. The Alder was sacred to the god “Bran” who is said to have created a bridge to span the dangerous waters from this world to the other … the chosen wood, “ALDER.” An old Celtic legend speaks of “Bran” carrying a branch from the Alder tree during the “Battle of the Trees.” Bran’s totem animal was the Raven who also became associated with the Alder. Ritual pipes and whistles were often made from Alder wood, many in the shape of the Raven.

Folklore also tells us, cutting down an Alder invited trouble as it invoked the anger of the tree spirit who would use fire to burn down the lumberjack’s house and his village would be cursed.
“I am guarded by very protective Faeries who surround and shelter me and when they leave take the form of a Raven. From the time of “Theophrastus,” the Greek philosopher, the bark of young Alder shoots have been used for dyeing and tanning leather. The next time you see an Alder overhanging some stream or a bed of flowers, look beneath its thrusting boughs of rustling leaves. You may get a glimpse of the “Faeries,” hiding in the wedge-shaped bark structure. Ponder the possibilities and consider what nature can teach you about life … let Spirit guide you.
Almond: Tree of Clairvoyance
Symbolic of an “Awakening,” a stirring of Spirit

Almond trees were growing in Israel, (Canaan), 2000 years ago and were mentioned in ancient Hebrew scripture, (Genesis 43-11, etc.). Moses crafted oil lamps in the image of an almond, and Van Gogh thought that blooming Almond trees were so beautiful that he created more than a dozen paintings of almonds in full flower.

In ancient societies, the Almond tree was valued for its supposed virtue in preventing intoxication and in Shakespearean times decorated many London gardens and orchards. The Almond grows freely in Syria and Palestine and is mentioned in the Scriptures as one of the best fruit trees of the land of Canaan. The Hebrew name, “SHAKAD,” is very expressive for it signifies “hasty awakening,”’ or “to watch for,” hence, to make haste, a fitting name for a tree, whose beautiful flowers appearing in Palestine in January, herald the wakening of Creation.

Come celebrate your life. Let the Spirit of the Almond tree be a conduit to put you in a reflective mood. Remember you are the one who holds the power, the key … to unlock the door. Discover within yourself the answers to what you seek. Nature is simply providing a place of pilgrimage.

Apple: Tree of Custodian Wisdom
Symbolic of the East, spring, the dawn and new beginnings

The profusion of perfumed blossoms occurs in spring and a feast for arousing the sensual sense of smell. If you peek beyond the delicately blushing, rosy and white-streaked, buds of the Apple tree don’t be surprised to find Unicorns playing hide-and-seek.

Over centuries, many apple myths have come to light, from the apple Adam and Eve ate to the Norsemen who use to bury their dead with an apple serving as a resurrection charm. But perhaps what lingers most in our minds is the ripe apple falling to the ground, a story we have all heard, reminding us in its fall of Newton and the discovery of gravitation.

Sit beneath the shade of an Apple tree’s splendor and let it speak to you. Allow yourself to move into a highly elevated state of being, visualizing the untapped force around you. You can use it to restore yourself. Be aware of thoughts and feelings dispersing and of the energy and light cursing through each part of your body. Hold this point of balance, the point between two world … experience the mystery … the gate is open wide.

Arbutus: Tree of Depth and Integrity
Symbolic of protection and safety

Canada’s only native broadleaf evergreen tree (known as Madrone in the US) is a wonderful metaphor for the spirit. In early morning or evening sunlight, this magnificent tree emits ancient energy, as it’s auburn boughs reach toward the dappled light filtering through the tight canopy of thick, leathery foliage.

I am an Evergreen without needles, the only deciduous tree that does not lose its leaves in winter! In the early spring bountiful white blossoms make me even more spectacular. During summer months, my reddish brown bark sheds its skin and underneath the younger yellowish green wood will turn a deep mahogany red during the winter months. In the fall my beautiful clusters of orange red berries feed the birds and deer. The energy surrounding me is powerful. Be still and attune to me, I can help you decipher the meaning of it all.

Aboriginal people revere the Arbutus. According to a Salish legend, the survivors of a great flood tied their canoe to an Arbutus atop Mount Newton near Sidney. B.C. To this day, as a mark of gratitude, the Salish won’t use Arbutus as firewood. Poet Richard Olafson shares another Native legend, writing, “The tree’s webbed roots hold the splintered earth together.” If the Arbutus should disappear, the myth warns-whether from fungal infection, habitat loss or some other cause, manmade or otherwise, the planet would fly apart and be utterly destroyed.

When you sit beside me, dirt beneath you and the wind blowing in your face, you are keeping company with an “Old One,” and I can help open many spiritual doors for you. If you are feeling somewhat barren, immerse yourself in the flow of Spirit, letting love soulfully touch your heart. Receive easily and graciously believing you are a channel of grace.

Ash: Tree of Humankind and Ancestors
Symbolic of the “Bridge” connecting the Spiritual and Physical realm

From my roots flow two limpid streams, that of the knowledge of things past and that of the knowledge of things to come. In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil (“The Terrible One’s Horse”), also called the “World Tree,” is the giant ash tree that links and shelters all the worlds. Beneath the three roots the realms of Asgard, Jotunheim and Niflheim are located where three wells lie at its base, the “Well of Wisdom,” the “Well of Fate” and the “Source of Many Rivers.”
Four deer run across the branches of the tree and eat the buds; they represent the Four Winds. There are other inhabitants of the tree, a golden cock rests on the summit observing all that passes in the Universe, a squirrel named Ratatosk, (Swift Teeth) a notorious gossip constantly ascends and descends carrying messages between the golden cock that perches on the topmost bough and “Nidhogg,” the serpent. Legend says, on the day of Ragnarok, “Doom of the Gods,” the Fire Giant, Surt, will set the tree on fire, never to be seen again.

In the midst of the Ash tree’s splendor recall your tender nature, and make peace with unresolved issues. If you can see the beauty of the world, in harmony and with deep appreciation, you will notice a warm feeling that is hard to put into words. Rejoice in this new perspective. Be attentive, open and reverent allowing yourself to be re-enchanted with the world.
Aspen: Tree of Loyalty and Harmony
Symbolic of the “Voice of Spirit”

The Aspen, considered part of the poplar family, has a habit of shimmering or quivering in the breeze making a distinctive rustling, whispering sound. In several Native languages, the name “Trembling Aspen” translates as “woman’s tongue” or “noisy leaf.”

The Aspen’s root is rarely killed during a fire, and Aspens are generally the first trees to grow in a burned out area. Aspen wood is very lightweight when dried, becoming very buoyant and was therefore a popular choice for oars and paddles also was used to make arrows in medieval times.

In many cultures and religions the wind is associated with the “Voice of Spirit,” and in the boughs and leaves of the Aspen, the wind finds a distinctive voice to inspire those who would listen with patience and sensitivity. The movement of the wind through the canopy and the sun dappling through the leaves can have a mesmerizing effect, encouraging a contemplative and meditative frame of mind. Like the hero and shaman who stand apart from the crowd, the Aspen’s sparse distribution often away from other trees, and its magical connotations has “done much over the years to facilitate legends of people disappearing from under it into the land of Faerie.” (“Tree Wisdom” by Jacqueline Paterson 1996)

Bring your drum, flute or your favorite musical instrument and sit under the Aspen’s canopy. Plunge deep into your soul letting your mind drift into nothingness. Open wide your arms, let the music shower you with pulsating radiance. Focus on the sounds, and listen to the rhythm of nature calling. Become one with the melody as it fills you. When you are ready, open your eyes and play your Spirit Song. There is always light in the darkness. Value your creativity and your connection with the Universe.
Birch: Tree of Fertility & Protection
Symbolic of renewal, and purification

The word birch is thought to have derived from the Sanskrit word “bhurga” meaning a “tree whose bark is used to write upon”. When the poet S.T. Coleridge called the birch, “Lady of the Woods,” he was possibly drawing on an existing folk term for the tree. Its birch twigs were used to bestow fertility on newlyweds and cattle. Nearly every part of it is edible, and its sap was an important source of sugar to Native Tribes and early settlers.
Ojibway Legend: Winabojo and the Birch Tree.
Once there lived a spirit-boy named Winabojo who taught the Objibwa how to live in the natural world. One day he went searching for feathers to adorn his arrows. Climbing to the highest cliff, he discovered a nest of Thunderbird babies. Winabojo turned into a rabbit so the Thunderbirds would bring him to their nest for their babies to play with. Winnabojo stayed in the nest for a long time; the babies were cruel to him and tossed him around. Eventually Thunderbirds went away to hunt for food to feed their babies. 
Winabojo turned back to a boy; he clubbed the baby Thunderbirds and pulled out their feathers. Before the parents could return, Winabojo jumped from the high nest with the bundle of feathers and was knocked out, but not killed because he was a “manido.”
When they returned to their nest, the angered Thunderbirds flew after Winabojo!! Thunder rolled from their beaks and lightning flashed from their eyes. Winabojo ran for his life clutching his bundle of feathers, but soon grew so tired he began to fear he would be caught. As the Thunderbirds reached for him with their claws, Winabojo saw an old fallen birch that was hollow inside. He crept into the hollow in the nick of time. The Thunderbirds ended their attack because they knew they could not reach Winabojo through the birch bark. Winabojo was safe. After the Thunderbirds left, Winabojo came out and proclaimed that the birch tree would forever protect and benefit the human race.
You can still see the short marks on the birch tree made by Winabojo to commemorate the sharp claws of the Thunderbirds who almost killed him. The Thunderbird parents put “pictures” of their baby birds with out-stretched wings into the birch bark so the sacrifice of their children would always be remembered. Winabojo fixed his arrows and went home. With these arrows he was able to kill the great fish that lived under the rock ledge.
Winabojo has blessed the birch tree for the good of the human race. And this is why lightning never strikes the birch tree, and why anything wrapped in the bark will not decay. Birch bark is useful for house coverings, canoes, containers, utensils, and in many other ways.

Walk your path with truth and honor remembering talk is cheap. It is actions and behaviors that determine integrity. The Source by whatever “Name” you call it longs to flow through you. Be receptive! Gently close your eyes for a minute. Leisurely wander through some of your blissful moments creating a strand of each memory. Weave the strand together, taking into your heart. Carry it with you throughout each day that you may add new memories to the strand.
Blackthorn: Tree of Destiny
Symbolic of “fate” and the influences it has on destiny

In ancient times, the Blackthorn was commonly used in healing remedies and magical potions. The “Blackthorn” tree grows in dense thickets and is barked with vicious thorns, the very thorns believed to have adorned the crown Jesus wore. Thought to be a tree of fidelity and independence, in Irish folklore the Blackthorn was both a source of fear and good fortune. Guarded by “Lunatasidhe” a small hairless faerie resembling a balding old man, the “little people” are said to haunt Blackthorn groves in groups.
Though I am barked with fierce prickles, you are welcome to rest a spell. Slow down and look around. Notice the colors and light playing with the shadows. Walk around and savor the fragrance of wild flowers, slowly and deeply. Still the busy-ness of your mind and listen to twigs cracking under your feet, the leaves rustling in the breeze, the birds singing, and the soft beating of your heart. Let yourself be tuned to nature’s call. Let this be a place of return, a safe haven, your quiet abode to nurture your spirit
whenever the need arises.
Bodhi-Tree: Tree of Wisdom
The symbolism of the Bodhi Tree comes from the story of the Buddha, who during the first week after Enlightenment, sat under the bodhi tree experiencing the happiness of freedom and peace. He was free from disturbing thoughts, calm and blissful.
Sometime during the sixth century BC a solitary, wandering ascetic sat to meditate beneath a shady tree, resolving not to rise until he had attained the ultimate knowledge of spiritual enlightenment, he was born Prince Gautama Siddhartha.
Gautama was the son of King Suddhodana raised in great luxury. Following the ancient traditions of Hinduism, Gautama sought out spiritual teachers, or gurus. Inquiring of their knowledge, he diligently practiced various yogas and meditations. Seven years passed, the last three in extreme asceticism, yet still he had not achieved his goal of enlightenment. He was inspired to leave his princely lifestyle behind and devote himself to penetrating the mystery of human suffering. For several years, he traveled through India as a mendicant holy man, but ended in disillusion.
Finally recognizing that such practices had served him well but were no longer appropriate, he journeyed toward the ancient sacred forests of Uruvela in north India with the intention of completely realizing the infinite. Guided by visionary dreams and following in the footsteps of Krakucchanda, Kanakamuni, and Kasyapa, the Buddhas of three previous ages, Siddhartha sat beneath the Bodhi Tree making a pact to stay there until he had realized his quest. Touching the earth, thereby calling it to witness the countless lifetimes of virtue that had led him to this place of enlightenment, he entered into a state of deep meditation. Three days and nights passed and his intention was realized.

Gautama spent the next seven weeks in meditation near the Bodhi Tree. When he emerged from under the tree, he believed he had found the secret of enlightenment (Buddha means “enlightened” or “awakened” in Pali), and he gave over the rest of his life to teaching all who would listen. Then, at the request of the god Indra, he began to speak of the great truth he had realized. His first sermon was given at Isipatana (modern Sarnath near Banaras). This first discourse, often called “Setting in Motion of the Wheel of Truth” presented the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path for which Buddhism is so famous.

Within itself, the mind is timeless, peaceful, unmoving. Rest in this natural state. If the changing sense impressions cause the mind to forget itself, to be deceived and entangled, your practice is to see this whole process and simply return to the original mind. © Jack Kornfield
Broom: Tree of Astral Travel
Symbolic of lucid dreams and flight

Also known as Scotch Broom or Irish Broom, grows in open spaces. According to the Celtic Zodiac, the reed or the broom is the tree sacred to the twelfth moon of the year starting on October 28th and ending on November 24th. This tree is useful in “cleaning up” spiritual or mental messes and was used to sweep outside ritual areas for purification and protection. The Irish called “Broom” the “Physician’s power” because of its diuretic shoots. Burning the blooms and shoots calms the wind. In the Language of Flowers, Broom signifies neatness or humility. The neatness is obvious for a broom-plant.

Today, the twigs and branches are serviceable not only for making brooms, but are also used in basket weaving especially in the island of Madeira.
