The new creation is made from hornbeam and a spiny (very sharp) chestnut cupule. The beginning you see in the first two pictures.

The next step of Handleiding tot geluk by Ellen Darricarrere came in Saturday.I postponed it until Monday. The theme was ‘the center aka our middle’ and look who’s talking there to whom. What came up was first again confusion and the one who’s talking asked:”What and where is my middle, this center she is talking about?” followed immediately by a picture of a narrow canyon where it was very cold.ravijnMust be the next step in my climbing, being block No.2 I have to master.

I went shopping and found something my friend Nicole would like to have as she told me last year: – MAGIC WHIPES –    🙂

I gave her a call that I bring them to her this Tuesday morning. Arriving there, she was busy painting stones so had the chance to look at her shaman tools and all the wonderful branches she has, waiting to be made. Among them one particular branch asked my attention and when looking I saw the canyon.


My friend saw me looking and with the words – you take it and do something nice with it – she handed me the branch. Also attending me to the fact, that this branch has a shaman eye too and from a pine tree root. When telling her about my ‘climbing down quest’ and Monday’s picture of a canyon, she had to laugh like me – you never come across something for nothing.

Pine Medicinal Properties

After some tea time we went biking through the forest where all the birds were singing happily in the sun and the brisk air. Step 2 can be made – the branch is acclimatizing in my home in the corner where I have buddha energy.

Tuesday morning was a morning with my friend Nicole. She had learned a new technique and showed me what she had made. She is also busy with a rattle and it will be one hell of an art work. From there we talked about working with calabashes. She has a lot of them lying to dry. One, unfortunately, was beginning to rott, except the upper part. I got an idea of what to do with this upper part so my friend gave the rotten calabash to me. “Do what you think you can do with it.”

The rest of the day I was busy to work on the calabash. Succeeded to saw off the top without breaking it and clean the inside. The result you see down here. It was quite one creative afternoon and evening.


This morning, Wednesday January 14, I found the astrological update on

Breakthroughs can emerge today  ….What is at stake here is the individual’s capacity of RESPONSE TO LIFE’s RENEWALS—renewals which are cyclic, predictable, yet always new, always creative.

…. We can …channel the cosmic energies that are trying to express through each of us according to our aptitudes, calling and context. The channeling may be ….  in the form of  artistic or creative inspiration….

When looking again at the tool, there was the urge to remove the seed ball and … then what…Suddenly I knew and here is the outcome – real grow work:


Thinking that the tool was ready there had to be more. The final touch: a rock crystal.
