Horsetail popped up in my mind right after last week’s meditation on the Rune Ehwaz. So, naturally, it became the plant on which we focused during today’s healing session. What always amazes me is how much one can learn from a plant just by observing it (Doctrine of Signature – though of course, it should not be your sole source of information) and connecting with it intuitively.
Here’s today’s Guided Meditation with Horsetail (needless to say that you must always be respectful & polite when dealing with spirits):
“Relax. Close your eyes. Empty your mind & take a deep breath.
You’re going to find yourself time traveling back to Prehistoric times.
A time of clean air, pure rushing waters, primordial lush forests & gigantic plants you’ve never seen before. Look all around you until your eyes can find some giant horsetail.
Walk towards the plant and introduce yourself to the plant spirit who is already expecting you. He hands you a piece of plant material to ingest and you comply.
Notice of how it affects you in your perception, senses, emotions and/or in your body.
Before you leave, ask if there’s any message to share.”
Next week’s Runic meditation fill focus on Mannaz. Since we are getting close to being done covering the 24 Runes of the Elder Futhark, I’m currently thinking about what’s gonna come next. I’m considering starting a Runic Pathworking group (think level 2) as well as a Runic Divination 101 group in June but I haven’t announced anything officially yet…
