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). What they told me next was compelling to me. I wish to share it here. Just because oil and water interact in a way that we define as incompatible does not make that the truth. 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.

I put “hear” in quotes because we must...

Membranes of Hope

Recently in divination the wedeme (elemental beings of the wild) have been teaching me about the importance of tending to the many layers of “membranes” which enclose and protect life systems. Feeding and caring for these membranes is crucial and urgent work for medicine people at this time on the planet. Let me explain what is meant by the use of the word membrane to more fully explain the concept. A membrane is a “selective barrier” which allows or denies access to that which is it protecting. There are synthetic membranes (those created through chemical synthesis) and biological...
