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:

Today I started working on a new tool.

The new tool I made today is made of :

One Catalpa bignonioides’ s slender pod. The Catalpa tree originated from ‘kutuhlpa’ meaning ‘winged head’ The tree produces long slender pods which are green and turn brown into winter to open in the spring and release the seeds. The tree is also called “catawba,” by the Native American in the Carolinas. The Catawba are also known as Iswa “people of the river”.

The tree has its own caterpillar – The Catalpa Sphinx Moth – which is used as fishing-bait.

The spiritual meaning of the catalpa tree is:
Embracing Uniqueness, Esoteric Studies, Expressing Creativity, Spirit Summoning

Black Bamboo
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, simplicity and humility.

Bamboo has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine and Chinese herbal medicines. Tabasheer, powder in bamboo tubes, used internally to treat asthma, coughs and can be used as an aphrodisiac. In China, materials from the roots of the black bamboo help treat kidney disease. Roots and leaves can also be used to treat venereal disease.

The ends are closed with camellia japonica dried flowers. In Japan the camellia flower is called “Tsubaki” and symbolizes the divine.

Here the final shaman wisdom tool:

Remember the tiny branch I found several weeks ago?

Good friend @VerenigdGiacomo tuned into the energy of it and came up with the following: element ether with connections to elements air and fire. Key words that came forth are opening up, change, conduct, define.

My girl friend Nicole, http://www.atelierlazuli.nl/ , came to visit and also tuned in. Laughing out loud, getting excited and frolicking around, tapping on the table with the pointed end of the little branch, she suddenly looked at me: ” You only have to call the little elf when you need her.” and went on frolicking. She ended with a bright smile saying:” What a cute little fellow this is!”

Slightly elfin, remember the poem I used in my blog about the plants…..
