In the druid tradition, in multiple modern druid orders, we associate animals or fish with the four directions. The classic ones are: The Great Bear in the North The Hawk in the East The Stag in the South The Salmon in the West Depending on the tradition, it might get a little fancier. For example,…Exploring the Sacred Animals of the Quarters in the Druid Tradition — The Druids Garden

Mushrooms as Nature’s Alchemists: Cycles, Connections, Healing, and Vision — The Druids Garden
When I feel lost and feel like the hope is gone in the world, I go spend time with some mushrooms. Mushrooms, more than any other organism on this planet, give me hope. So much so, I’ve been doing an intensive year-long study of the fungi kingdom, learning their medicine, their magic, their visionary properties,…Mushrooms as Nature’s Alchemists: Cycles, Connections, Healing, and Vision — The Druids Garden
Introduction to Spirit Journeying: Your Inner Sacred Grove — The Druids Garden
In the last two posts, we explored the preliminaries for spirit journeying: the preliminaries such as addressing issues like safety, believability, focus, and visualization and also doing an initial journey to find a guide that can assist you as part of your journeying work. The next step is to establish a safe space, a “home…Introduction to Spirit Journeying: Your Inner Sacred Grove — The Druids Garden
The ladder is an everyday object but it has esoteric meaning. It is a symbol of the Freemasons, so it has huge meaning. Most think it means being initiated into higher levels of their club. That is the meaning for the muggles. The meaning of this simple object is very simple. It is just people who have made it complex. We always try to make things harder than they actually are. The ladder is a symbol of the path to enlightenment.

The symbol of the stag is very interesting to me. This symbol in the Arthurian legends sends the knights off on a spiritual quest. It is the symbol of Pan and Cernunnos. In China the stag is the symbol of the God of Immortality, Shou-hsien. In Native American legends the stag symbolizes the Spirit World. The Hopi cut the image of their Sun god from a piece of deerskin. Why is the symbol of the stag so important that it represents Gods and Spirits? I found the answers I was looking for in Egypt once again.

Drought workings: A Druid’s Perspective on Drought and Dry Weather
2020 is certainly a year to remember for many of us in the human realm. Here in Western Pennsylvania and up along many parts of New England, we’ve had an additional serious problem affecting the natural world—an extreme drought. This summer, the jet stream is way off of its normal course and so most of the major storms that would typically hit us have been forced south of us, creating the “moderate” drought that we are now in and causing uncharacteristically dry conditions. know there are other serious droughts around the world, such as the three-year drought currently happening in Germany. Climate change is making these kinds of weather events all the more common and teaching us powerful lessons along the way. In today’s post, I’ll share some drought lessons, drought land healing, and ways of working and honoring water.

Physical Land Healing: How do I know what to do?
Some years ago, I remember one influential druid speaking at a major event and saying, “The best thing you can do in nature is pick up the garbage and get out.” From a certain standpoint, this perspective makes a lot of sense. It is the same perspective held by many conservationists trying to preserve pristine lands or lands that have been replanted and are healing; the best thing that can be done is figure out how to keep people from mucking them up, pick up garbage, and leave them undisturbed. This is a perspective ultimately rooted in the desire to care for nature, to preserve nature, and to do good. Unfortunately, this perspective doesn’t really seem to provide a meaningful way to respond to today’s problems ecologically because it’s largely based on assumptions that mitigate damage rather than actively regenerate ecosystems. This perspective as a whole teaches us how to…

CELESTITE: A HEALING RITUAL FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION
Celestite is a strontium sulfate crystal whose fragility belies its majestic healing power.
Its name derives from the Latin “heavenly”.
We work with celestite a LOT in my Pro Crystal Healer program to help reduce inflammation, accelerate healing, and to deepen our exploration and development of our spiritual selves.
In meditation it helps connect us with the “something more” that we all are, and its high frequency vibrations opens divine channels that can help lead us on our soul path, discover our life purpose, and embody more of our higher potential.
It resonates with the heart, throat, 3rd eye, and crown chakras.
