In 2003 a friend took me to Ireland for vacation. Along the roads you see evergreen hedges. The last day I was able to find a tiny little branch with roots to take home. I placed it into a wet handkerchief and the handkerchief into a plastic bag.

Home again I immediately planted the little fellow into my garden and it grew very well. Until now I managed to get ten offshoots from of it. Some I gave away as present. I kept the original and four new offshoots, al grown up and making little rose-coloured flowers.

August 3rd, while rummaging in the garden, one little branch came of the mother plant with roots.

Today I gave it colour and a tiny little gray feather from a baby crow that flew into my house several days ago. The tool is not yet initiated.

Today I started a new tool. I know it is one for myself, that’s for sure.
On the branch:

  • Pine cone as a metaphor for the pineal gland that activates the third eye. The pineal gland actually looks like a little pine cone.
  • Herkimer Diamond: crystallized light energy, a spiritual tool for energy work, light work, dream work, shamanic work, healings, receiving visions and making contact with angels and other higher energies
  • Mangano calcite: the essence of self-love, guide spirit away from over-analyzing tendencies, help to simply accept and radiate unconditional love, connection with angels, healing trauma of the inner child, soul healer
  • Hazelnut: joy and pleasure for life itself, full connection with the body, wisdom and protection

For two days now I feel a lot of pressure.  In need of something like an explosion.  Where yesterday I mopped the floors in the house to clear some pressure (something that helps me a lot) today I had to create.  In the afternoon again the creative urge.

The base is bamboo again, half a bamboo – managed this by smashing a big hammer onto the bamboo. The half’s survived. Further I used the remains of the cherry laurel blossoms and an empty snail house.

Cherry Laurel

Glory, Victory, Nobility, Immortality, the gift of prophecy, Recognition, high honor, seeing the big picture

Snail: slow-moving, patience

Snail’s shell: Protection & defense

Sunday I visited my friend Hilde – http://detuinenvanhilde.nl/ -. We spend some splendid hours in her wonderful sanctuary garden.Simply incredible energy, lots of birds, a gigantic tree ,little pond and bird baths and feeders everywhere. I got a branch of her walnut tree with a shrunk walnut on it.Found a tiny little feather too. Managed to get the branch home unbroken.

Te next day, due to a not so good night sleep, I felt as run over by a bus. Hanging in there suddenly the urge to start the tool. Blue & Gold, the feather and….a feather from the ravens visiting my little garden. A bamboo as base.

BAMBOO = Like a self-cultivated scholar in hermitage, it is ready to render services when called upon.
Since the bamboo lasts through all seasons, it is frequently associated with pine and plum as the “Three Winter Friends.” The bamboo is considered a gentleman with perfect virtues. It combines upright integrity with accommodating flexibility; it has the perfect balance of grace and strength, or the Yin and the Yang, bamboo symbolize the spirit of integrity and loyalty.

WALNUT TREE – symbol of mystical, universal wisdom and knowledge. A bridge and guardian angel for people in Transition. Walnuts are food for the nervous system, bringing grounding, inner stability and focus on your aims and goals.Walnut is the energy of home, home in your body with yourself, taking good care of  you while simultaneously listening to others ready to help if necessary. Walnut energy is tender, loving, soft, warm, caring energy. Solve the primal doubt in yourself.

3 hours later, time fly when creating, it was ready the way it had to be. Dried over night and got some varnish this morning. See here:

The reception of the flow of intuitive information is getting better. Where I mostly acted without knowing why I had to do something to find out it was right weeks later, now I get it almost instantly but only if I need to know. So is the case with the tool I made June 5.

After receiving en reading the message of Aluna Joy on June 7, the insight came immediately – the tool has the same message but there is more and I have to work with it for more information. Tomorrow the tool will be initiated. I’m excited about what might come up.

When I visited my friend for a birthday celebration I got, once more, a beautiful branch from Kerria Japonica Pleniflora.

Kerria japonica – Yamabuki – lit. mountain breath – a Buddhist symbol for mono-no-aware

Beside the branch I got three top pieces from the gourds, symbolism here , my friend makes her rattles of. This morning, in a flash, I got the inspiration so I started working on a new tool. It got a piece of amber at the top.
Also the antler, I recently bought, got a make-over with gold and silver and  a lizard on it too.

Deer totem’s and their antlers bring the message and meaning of higher connection and awareness. Antlers act as spiritual antennae. The lizard animal totem is also a reliable messenger from the spiritual realm.
