“In my heart is written the lore of ancient days and ways of yore, read the whispers in the veins of my leaves, flow of light swells mother stem cells; bring the New through remembered ways, open Gates to the Sun, channel the stream, master old disharmonies, live our golden dream.” The Beech Queen
Following our move of house, I am deeply enjoying the energies of this land – a steep garden on the side of a valley in the hills overlooking the coastal plain where the city of Perth spreads. A creek runs from a waterfall through the valley for about six months of the year, currently dry during southern hemisphere summer, and there are many beautiful trees. The first ‘call’ here was to a grove of beech trees, where the energy of the valley feels at its strongest, deep-rooted to Gaia’s core.
The Beech tree, in the old Celtic and Druidic traditions (‘phagos’ in the Druidic ogham/alphabet), is known as the goddess tree, Queen counterpart to the Oak King, and as the tree of Learning. Her leaves were used for paper, and she is connected with words, language, scribes and writing. Her consciousness is the stimulus for crossing thresholds, diving deep into the ‘past’ of this life and other lifetimes, bringing ancient knowledge to the surface and reworking it into new energies and forms. She is a portal keeper of memories, understanding of the cause and effect flow of all lifetimes in the whole, and stepping beyond other lifetime energies/’ties that bind’ while healthily allowing, honouring and utilizing the gifts and learnings of those lives. The word for ‘door’ comes from Sanskrit ‘duir’ (oak); in the Beech and Oak united we have the threshold and the door.
In the Celtic tradition, Beech is associated with the Bluebird, the colour light blue, the gods Ogma Sunface, Odin and Thoth-Hermes-Mercury, and the goddess Seshat. For information about Ashtar (remembered on Earth as Thoth and Hermes Trismegistus) and Sesherat in the galactic fleet (remembered as Seshat) see the Guides page. Thoth and Seshat were both depicted in Ancient Egypt as scribes, recorders and inventors of letters/writing, and both were associated with the concept of ‘karma’ (flow of cause and effect through incarnations). Thoth was named in ancient texts as ‘Lord of Karma’. Why? In truth, he inspires remembrance of freedom from karma, the wheel of returning energies, and he and Seshat teach this together, through the path of Love and sacred inner knowledge felt through the wisdom of the Heart.
The Bluebird has been a personal icon for me since childhood, when I had recurring dreams of walking in a dark forest, not knowing the way out, then in front of me a bluebird would appear and lead me along a path into light. The Bluebird I now know as a projection of Archangel Michael, and do see many blue Orbs, of his energies and the Sirian Blue Lodge.
This new home feels held as a ‘sacred space’ in which to learn/remember more deeply through the balance of the Divine Masculine and Feminine within, through the union of the Beech Queen and Oak King….and through laughter, since the Divine delights in magical humour! A little way up the hill from the ring of beeches is a stand of Casuarinas, also known as ‘Beach She-Oaks’! 🙂
A note about Sesherat/Seshat; as a guide in recent years, she appears in my dreams, often in human form as a dark-haired woman, sometimes signified by a notebook and pen in her hands, with which she is writing. Other times, she has shown me writing/letters which belong to deep memory and beautiful vibrations. In one dream she gave me a white shawl, and on it were letters depicting Venusian sound-forms, light language (they look somewhat like a blend of Hebrew script with Tolkien’s elven Tengwar letterforms, if you can picture that). Such dreams are as lucid as waking life…but more durable. Overtly, Sesherat also projects her energies in Orb form, light rose and blue. (Ashtar usually projects to me in bird-of-light form, as eagle, dove or ibis). Their images – the projected representations of all Light beings – are indeed a form of telepathy, where images hold and transmit vibrational ‘messages’ to be embraced by the heart’s love.
May the healing and balance of the Beech Queen radiate constantly into Gaia’s network and to all who need it. Please also know that guiding and guarding beings of Love are always only a thought away, for all of us. We all make our choices, have our own paths to walk, yet in togetherness with our soul families, whether we are consciously aware of them/us or not, interweaving endlessly…and ultimately, we are All One family of Source, working with certain strands according to our souls’ plans. Let’s keep opening doors together, dear friends, across dimensions.
“Rooted in the knowledge of the ancients and sustained by the ideas of the present, we will continue to reach for the stars.” (Beech Tree,The Wisdom of the Trees, Jane Gifford)
With Love to you All.
