What Tree do you grow from?

Postby Verita » Tue Feb 02, 2016 12:49 pm

I thought I'd put our journey into a metaphorical tree :)

I'd love to see all the different responses here, so, what tree do you grow from?

I'll start:

My roots [foundation] are my higher power - God

My trunk [what you build on top of your foundation] is WA and DA. I choose to work with both.

My branches [what grows from your 'roots' and 'trunk'] are empathy, compassion, strength, protection, passion, continual learning & evolution, self development advancement and empowerment, physic [third eye], magickal pursuits & workings, reading others, creating connections (spirits, totem animals, the 3 realms, past present and future, higher self etc), creative outlets for spiritual relief expression & discoveries, spirit communication, working with the elements, overcoming obstacles.

The Eight Tenets of Ritual Magick

1. Expect the unexpected;
2. Magic has no morality;
3. As above, so below;
4. There are no coincidences;
5. There is a choice that is no choice;
6. Change is the only constant;
7. Seize the day and there is a price to pay;
8. A true magician must transcend himself.

Branches- Love Light Grey Dark revenge kindness reaching for my understanding in this place and my place in it all
Dark desires of sex and passion touched and accepting demonic darkness also trying to balance my light and keep it burning

Roots – Grounding, nourishing, supportive - Mother Earth – The Great Mystery – Ancestral

Trunk – Growth to enhance access to life giving energy, storage, and a means of transport – For me, bendable and not easily broken - What is at my core and/or what do I value – Inner Strength, Spirituality, Open Heart and Mind, Knowledge and ability to objectively analyze it, Intuition, Ancestral Gifts both positive and negative

Branches, Leaves, and Reproductive Organs – Reaching, growing, taking energy from the sun and atmosphere, giving life sustaining oxygen to the atmosphere, possibly reproducing - Father Sky – Love, Empathy, Passion, Friendship, Family Relations, Spiritual Journeys, Creative Endeavors, Intellectual Pursuits, Emotions

Sweetness is stored and moved throughout 1ey

I also believe in Chaos as a basis for successful magical endeavors: using beliefs and experimentation to make “magic” happen.
