Daily Dose of Nature

Gaian Ecology Green Witch

The green witch knows that the Earth provides all that she needs : wood for wands, herbs for healing and crystals for magic. A green witch works with what nature provides and in the simplest way possible. Everyday objects, the air you breathe, the paths you walk on, are all part of the green witch’s magical toolkit. She is aware of the need to turn back the clack; the closer her magical paraphernalia is to that which her ancestors would have used, the more powerful they are Pure, natural magic tools have the lease potential to hurt Gaia’s body – the Earth.

The Ecological Choice

When practising green witchcraft use the herbs native to your own land, rather than exotic ones imported on aeroplanes and which, therefore, contribute to the pollution of the air. when selecting bowls; the natural choice might be a gourd; wood is an option and perhaps glass. Metal might be a viable choice, but you need to consider how it will return to the earth when you have finished with it. All you tools should be recyclable. Be learning to live with nature you will make better use of its magical energies.

The Magic Tools of Gaia

All things in nature are potential tools. Forage, as your ancestor witches did, and see what treasures you can dig up.

  • Trees – Tress store specific energies and emotional qualities and provide wood for wands and bowls.
  • Herbs – Herbs can be used for healing, magic and medication. Most garden herbs are easy to grow and use for this purpose, such as lavender and rosemary.
  • Water – Pure fresh water holds energies and emotions, and is used, for example, in making flower remedies.
  • Seasons – The four season each have their own particular strengths, feelings and associations to enhance magical work.

  2. Aw “Tress store specific energies and emotional qualities”, I wonder if this is why I feel such a strong affiliation with forestry and trees? I used to love tree climbing, right up until I was 18 and sitting on a high bow hearing nothing but swaying branches and the wind felt like I was where I should be 🌳🌲

      Trees provide breathable air, timber, fuel, food, shelter, medicine and beauty. Without trees, we could not live. They can help us think better β€” Plato and Aristotle did their best thinking in the olive groves around Athens, Buddha found enlightenment beneath a bo tree, and Isaac Newton realised his theory of gravity when an apple fell from the tree under which he was sitting β€” and they can help us feel better.

      Many of today’s pharmaceuticals are derived from trees. Aspirin comes from willow bark; yews are the source of Taxol, used in the treatment of some cancers; ginkgo biloba improves circulation; tea tree oil is beneficial for skin infections; cinchona tree bark contains quinine, the basis of many anti-malarial drugs; and Pycnogenol, which protects against deep vein thrombosis, is made from pine tree bark.

      1. Now you’ve just made my love of trees even more!! I’m tending to my olive tree in the front garden (which some low life pushed over almost damaging the poor thing. I talk to her πŸ₯° We love our bird feeders in the back garden hawthorn trees which are also home to cheeky squirrels and a magpie. My happy wrong place is summer is sat on a deckchair listening to chilled out dance music beneath their protective boughs. They give us oxygen, shade and of course, everything stated above. 🌳❀🌲

        Ah I just imagined the beautiful scene you described in your words. Thank you πŸ™πŸΌ

        Probably the most well-researched benefit of nature exposure is that it seems to help decrease our stress, rumination, and anxiety. And much of that research has been conducted in forests.

        In one recent study, 585 young adult Japanese participants reported on their moods after walking for 15 minutes, either in an urban setting or in a forest. The forests and urban centers were in 52 different locations around the country, and about a dozen participants walked in each area. In all cases, the participants walking in a forest experienced less anxiety, hostility, fatigue, confusion, and depressive symptoms, and more vigor, compared to walking in an urban setting. The results were even stronger for people who were more anxious to begin with.

      The causal links between environmental change and human health are complex because they are often indirect, displaced in space and time, and dependent on a number of modifying forces. Human health ultimately depends upon ecosystem products and services (such as availability of fresh water, food and fuel sources) which are requisite for good human health and productive livelihoods. Significant direct human health impacts can occur if ecosystem services are no longer adequate to meet social needs. Indirectly, changes in ecosystem services affect livelihoods, income, local migration and, on occasion, may even cause political conflict. The resultant impacts on economic and physical security, freedom, choice and social relations have wide-ranging impacts on well-being and health, and the availability and access to health services and medicines.

      Glad you liked the post.
