The Six of Air energies manifest in the Cattail

Cattail

Clarity can be found in the mire. Cattail, often seen as invasive, creates a stronger ecosystem by cleaning and purifying an area, making it more habitable for life.

Open yourself to new ways to pray.

Ask for help from your community when you need it. Adjust your expectations and challenge your current way of thinking.

As cattail seeds are carried by the wind, trust Spirit to carry your visions toward a greater good. Cattail is sometimes called the supermarket of the wild for its many uses – as food, shelter, clothing, fuel and medicine.

Be the resource of the spirit; look for myriad ways to be of service to the needs of others.

Crafting With the Six of Air

The Six energies feature plants that produce generously and are used in community ritual. Found both in the cultivated garden and in the wild, they give profusely to the land, the creatures, and the herbcrafter. These plants offer food, medicine, and craft to people; food, nest-building materials, and protection to animals; and nutrients, pollinators, and protection to the land.

Circling with friends is the resolution to the conflicts encountered in the Fives. The confidence and productivity the herbcrafter experienced in the Threes is magnified when she unites people for a greater cause. In the ritual work of the Sixes, she combines the skill of creating sacred space she learned in the Fours with meeting the challenges she encountered in the Fives. In the Sixes the herbcrafter awakens to the power of community.

Craft

  • Learn to make botanical paper from cattails and use it for journal writing
  • Write a single petition to a holy helper; then burn the paper letting your prayers rise to heaven
  • Gather friends on a new moon and support each other in setting new intentions

Mini Meditation

Meditation

Get into a relaxing position and close your eyes, make sure you are a comfortable temperature and not likely to be interrupted.

  • Take three deep breaths
  • Feel your tension melting away.

Imagine yourself doing one of the crafts mentioned above. Use your imagination. Make it as elaborate or as simple as you like. Have whomever you would like to be there come and share the time with you.

Imagine what it would look and feel like, as if it were really happening. Use your five senses and imagine all the sensory details as though you are really there.

Be creative and indulge in this moment.

Spend as long as you like in this visualization and feel the benefits of crafting with nature. Think about your meditation as often as you like as you go through your day. If possible, create it in reality.

The Herbcrafter

Herbcrafter

An herbcrafter is an afficianada of the botanical realm. She is in love with plants and longs to know them more deeply.

Her approach is driven by a playful, wild spirit.

The herbcrafter embraces the plant world as her teacher and friend through observation and botany, gardening and wildcrafting, medicine and kitchen craft, fiber arts and weaving, art and magic.

She recognizes herself as part of nature. She seeks reciprocity in all things. Through the relationship with the botanical world, she learns how plants and people can be of service to one another.

Resource

Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul.

Michel de Montaigne
