Crafting With the Six of Water
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.

- 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.
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.
“Always give without remembering and always receive without forgetting.Brian Tracy
