Ash Wand

Made my brother an Ash Wand from a piece of uncut Ashfrom the wild and ancient woods of Cumbria ~

Magic Wand of Ash

 

The Ash appears in Norse myth as Yggdrasil, the World-Ash or Tree of Life from which all the worlds spring.

It is the pathway or bridge by means of which

the wizard may travel among the worlds.

Poseidon, Odin, and Thor each wielded a spear of Ash,

symbolic of an irresistible magical Will and invincible protection.

 

The Greek goddess Nemesis carried an ash wand

as symbol of divine justice.

With it, she ensures that fortune is shared among all people

and not only by the few.

 

In Celtic mythology,

the Ash was sacred as a tree of enchantment

for its ability to span

the Three Worlds of Manifestation of Past, Present and Future.

The Ash Wand’s Magical Properties:

The Ash wand is especially to be used in healing

for promoting brain power, aiding in communication, intelligence, wisdom.

Use this wood to remove mental blockages and to assist in word use and understanding.

It is the wand of the poet, and scholar.

It promotes spiritual love and health.

It protects against unwanted change.

And it brings balance to the mind.

Use also for protection from drowning and to enhance the skills of arts and crafts, justice

and weather magick.

Ash Wands have both Male and Female aspects;

the Female side being connected to Life Giving Waters,

Birth, Healing and Protection

the Male side as the Center of the Universe

and

represented by the Wand or Spear.

The Druid’s Oath

“We swear by Peace and Love to stand

Heart to heart and hand in hand.

Mark, O Spirit, and hear us now,

Confirming this, our sacred vow.”

(repeat three times)

  1. If I may be permitted;The ash grove how graceful, how plainly 'tis speakingThe harp through its playing has language for me.Whenever the light through its branches is breaking,A host of kind faces is gazing on me.The friends from my childhood again are before meEach step wakes a memory as freely I roam.With soft whispers laden the leaves rustle o’er meThe ash grove, the ash grove alone is my home.The Ash (Onnen in Welsh) truly is a beautiful, strong and inspiring tree.
