What can one say about the majesty of the ocean and how its very life is being threatened in the same sentence? And yet, that is the situation we find ourselves in, the tension and contradiction we must hold in these times.
As Rachel Carson wrote in her beautiful tome to the ocean, The Sea Around Us:
“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life”(xiii).
Water is life and the ocean gave birth to all forms of biological life on this planet. Strega Tree Apothecary offers this bracelet and the ritual that comes with it to honor the ocean and allow the wearer be reminded of its beauty and majesty, to hold the ocean in highest regard. There is a prescriptive ritual included at the request of the Kontomble that will take you to the water’s edge to lean more deeply into this connection.
Each of us comes into this incarnation carrying what the wedeme call a “pattern of origin” or “soul origin pattern.” This we create together with the stars and star beings before we come into embodiment on Earth. This pattern serves as a guide and roadmap to our soul as we make our journey through this Earthly embodiment. Wedeme can see these patterns and help us return to or remember our pattern to more fully actualize our intentions for this Earth journey.
The human heart is a portal with guardians. It is important that we tend to our hearts and keep its guardians strong.The guardians of the heart are the Nyamping. The Nyamping in the Dagara tradition are the old old ones, the ones closest to source energy who guard the gates, thresholds and transitional spaces in all the fractal dimensions of the universe. They have counterparts in other traditions including Jesus, ascended masters and some saints in the Christian traditions and dragons in the mythological realms.
Celtic Knot Work is an ancient practice of using ritual knotting as a way to set intention and embed patterns of care and support into the completed piece for the benefit of the wearer.
