‘Great Grandmother Birch’ – The Path of Clarity, Purity, Healing & caring for others…
This painting is taken from some journeys I have been making to work with beautiful and sacred ‘Birch’.
Far North, in the snowy depths of the Birch Forest, Great Grandmother’s house can be found, sitting nestled in a clearing amongst the Birches and Amanitas.
Sat by Her fire, over a steaming cup of Birch tea, She told us stories of the very beginning. How she was the very first of the trees, and of how she had formed the very first forests. That She cared for all those who lived there, providing food, shelter and medicines for them – her grandchildren.
Great Grandmother talked of the Birch path as one of clarity of purpose, purity of heart (truly expressing the very best of all that we are) as well as stewardship for all beings…big and small, young and old, friend and foe alike!
This is not and easy path to walk, but one that is very much needed at this time. It reminds me of the ‘Warriors Creed’ by Robert Humphrey:
“Wherever I walk,
everyone is a little bit safer because I am there.
Wherever I am,
anyone in need has a friend.
Whenever I return home,
everyone is happy I am there.
“It’s a better life!”
Blessings on your path! 🙂
