One of the products we are especially fond of at Strega Tree Apothecary is the Wedeme Heart Blend: Heart Opening. When we carried out the divination for the Heart Opening Wedeme Heart Blend, there was a baby present. Wedeme said the baby was dreaming of grass. “Grass is unique to this planet,” they said. “He is dreaming of this because it is about how things grow here. There is sunshine and dew. The plants absorb the sun to grow. He is learning how to grow.”
The outside of the Heart Opening Gift Package
Then the scene changed to a desolate, barren place. A chain came in to view with a lock on it. It was very thick metal. This place had the feel of an old, paved schoolyard. It was nothing like the beautiful grass. It was a wasteland. It felt abandoned. There was a path that was dry and desolate. Wedeme showed how some people’s hearts are in chains. They showed a chain-link fence around the heart with the lock on it. There were trees along the path but it was dry and stark with dusty gravel. A person was walking the path alone. The wedeme said, “ A long time ago you decided to go it alone and you left your heart under lock and key.”
This is what is being healed with the Heart Opening Remedy. Heart Opening is a gift package designed to bring opening to a human heart through meditation, ritual and surprise. A healing for trauma, grief, loss and sorrow. This package is a series of rituals designed to guide you to access the full potential of your heart. Approximate ritual duration: This ritual contains 10 steps which take between 5 to 30 minutes each spread over a duration of two weeks.
Strega Tree Apothecary is pleased to announce the launch of our Wedeme Heart Blends line. When we first began this apothecary the wedeme informed us they wanted their own line of products that would focus on the human heart. We are now able to make the first three available.
I am so happy to present this book to you at this time. A time where hope is needed and a way forward is longed for. I hope this is one of the possible ways to move forward creating the future we wish to live.
Membranes of Hope: A Guide to Attending to the Spiritual Boundaries that Keep Lifesystems Healthy from the Personal to the Cosmic
by Theresa C. Dintino
“I write to figure things out.This was proving to be true once again. The push for us to work with the membranes is because of this: The soul of things are at risk.
All of life is alive and ensouled. And the earth is as well. She has many membranes that surround and protect her interiority, her soul. By tending to and caring for her soul, we support and strengthen her membranes.”
What is wildness? Wildness is the untamed and untamable. Wildness is not domesticated. Wildness is our true nature.
Wildness is what makes life possible. Some call it adaptation, random chance, chaos. But it is wildness. Random evolution and chaos are at the root of life systems, because from this wildness/chaos, potentialities are created that allow species to adapt to change. DNA has wildness in it that cannot be controlled even by genetic manipulation and that is how, in the context of unexpected changes in its environment, it thrives and life continues.
Wildness in a human is often thought to be a person who lives outside of cultural norms and customs. To me a wild human is anyone who is owned and defined by themself, in touch with their inner “daemon,” indwelling spirit or genius, as Mary Daly calls it.
Strega Tree is proud and pleased to highlight a new diviner in our community: Amy Tanzman Palmer. Amy is a powerful medicine woman, a delightful human and a gift to our circle.
Amy was first introduced to the Dagara through a Kontomble voice divination in 2013. That profound experience changed the trajectory of her life and she eventually found herself walking the path to becoming a diviner herself.
It’s great to have a place to interact directly with the elemental beings and bring them gifts and food. They are frisky. Be warned: Things can begin to move around in your home. Conversely you may suddenly find things you thought you lost. But ultimately this is a heart connection. Under these tricky deeds is a being wanting to know your heart. Wanting to trust you. A shy being that wishes to befriend you.
It is true, not all elemental beings like us or want to play with us but those kind won’t come to the call. Some indeed want to be left alone, have nothing to do with humans. Then there is no need to interact with them, unless you are bothering them and they let you know. Of course you should listen to that but with this particular shrine and the following ritual, don’t be afraid to call the wrong kind because they simply won’t come to an invitation to friendship.
