Silver birch. Betula alba. Lady of the Woods. This is a tree of infinite grace and kindness. She offers protection, dappled shade, she watches over you. She is beauty and sacred and more than a little bit divine. We sometimes think if she were a bird she would be a white swan. If she were a person she would be a Japanese butoh dancer… the slow elegance of a powdered body against a darkened forest.
Her energy is strong without shouting. Her presence so visceral, yet without clamour. You touch her trunk and it is cool and mysterious. You take the time to acknowledge her… and she recognises the beauty inside you. Do not harm her.
Of the Archeus Plant Essences we have made (all from trees and plants on my property) she is one of our power essences. A major arcana. A goddess is our Lady of the Woods and now she is ready to help you too.
She helps us connect to Nature and to the divine feminine. Sitting near birch trees is calming and cooling and their essence has this same energetic effect. She’ll cool you down when you are getting hot and bothered, she will calm you when jittery and help you feel protected. She helps us dig deep down into our relationship with nature for our own well-being. A beautiful essence for menopause or after the loss of a child. She is the essence of strength, elegance and grace.
As woman, she will help you find grace and light even in darkness. She offers protection and the ability to stand your ground. As man, she will give you insight and perspective, helping you understand more of these women’s ways and will look after you even when you feel lost.
