Strega Tree Apothecary: Remedies Direct From the Spiritual Realms to You

I am happy to announce the opening of the Strega Tree Apothecary at stregatree.com, my sister site for the Strega Tree Collective that has and continues to form around the divination and Strega work. When I first received the message from my elemental being friends and ancestors that I should start an apothecary, I imagined it would be offerings of medicinal herbs and remedies much like my great-grandmother had used. She was an herbalist and a midwife. But, much to my dismay, I was not schooled in this and I had too much on my plate to take it up. Knowing I was unschooled in what would be...

Understanding the Meaning of True Compatibility

In the middle of a group divination inquiring into the properties of oil, when I stated aloud that oil and water are not compatible, I was given a very big scolding by the wedeme (elemental beings of the wild).

Oil and water are perfectly made for one another. Their interaction and repulsion is a perfect compatibility which actually allows life to happen. The fact that oil can repel water allows many lifesystems to...

The Memory of a Thing is the Song that it Sings

Wedeme tell us that they work with the memories that are stored inside us, inside our bones, inside our psyches, inside our hearts. They tell us the memory of a thing is the song that it sings. They liken this to the way we can hear the sound of the ocean in many shells. They tell us it is the memory of the ocean held within that shell that we hear when that happens. That is also how they hear us. They can “hear” us because they can hear the memory that we are singing. They say it is often a song that even we cannot hear, but they can hear it. I put “hear” in quotes because we must...

The Importance of Orienting Ourselves

Since the following information has come up recently in multiple divinations both given and received, and seems to be very important for humans at this time on the planet, I decided to share it here for those of you who may want to incorporate it into your practice if you do not already. What we are told over and over again is that we must orient ourselves in space and time. The first thing to do is to orient yourself by finding out where the cardinal directions are in the place where you live, work and do medicine. North, East, South and West. If home, work and where you practice medicine...
