Magnolia Magic

The magnolia is one of four primary trees on the property of my home.

There are also two Brother Pines, a Father Oak, the 11 Sisters a.k.a. Tulip Poplars and then Mother Magnolia.

I turn to the magnolia when I am in need of comfort and mothering.

Her correspondences are dignity, spirituality, peace and endurance and she shares these energies with me freely.

This morning I went out into the yard and found a fallen leaf. The leaves naturally curl into a boat shape and are a perfect vessel for sending messages. I’ve been in a heightened state of anxiety for over two years now but this morning felt even more so.

So I fixed myself a cup of herbal tea. This divine feminine blend from my friend Val’s shop is especially comforting and nourishing. As I sipped, I wrote my concern on the leaf and then sprinkled the used herbs onto the leaf

I took the petition boat and headed out to the back of our property where a spring creek runs and along the way I found tulip poplar blooms that had dropped from the sisters. I picked one up and placed it in the boat as an additional offering and then walked to the waters edge.

I offered the boat to the spirit of the creek and said a prayer to Brigid asking that my anxiety be taken away and replaced with peace.

Then I gently pitched it into the water. I considered it a good omen that it did not capsize but landed upright and started to float away.

And as I watched it drift downstream, I felt just a little bit more at ease.

I think naming and releasing fears is such a vital part of overcoming them.

May you have peace today and every day.

Bright blessings.
