Sycamore Tree

*Nature-Speak/Ted Andrews
Keynote: Nourishment and beauty abound; new life and new gifts.

The sycamore has thin, grayish white bark and large leaves. It is found in low lying areas, near streams or where water flows or gathers. It likes to soak its feet in the water, and for those to whom the sycamore comes as a messenger, exploring foot reflexology and foot baths can be a tremendous health benefit.

Its name actually means "fig" and it is often called the ghost tree. It is one of the tallest of the deciduous trees and its whitish bark stands out strong in the woods - especially at night when the moonlight is strong. Its thin twigs and branches look like arms outstretched, especially when they are bare of leaves.

The sycamore was the sacred tree of the Egyptians. A sycamore staff can be used to draw the energies of Hathor into one's life and individual energy field. The sycamore is a nobel tree and its appearance is often a sign that there is nourishment about.

Sycamore energies help prevent atrophy of higher abilities the individual has brought into this lifetime. It is a reminder to build on old gifts and to express them in new ways. The staff can open communication between the conscious and subconscious minds when used in meditation and magical practices. It strengthens the life force of the individual and opens the opportunities to receive "intuitive and spiritual gifts" from the universe.

The sycamore is also a sign that gifts, which are more mundane, are on the horizon. These gifts may come in the form of assistance, compliments, etc. It is important to receive them graciously, for if we do not receive the little things, the universe will not bring us the big things. It holds the nowledge of the laws of abundance and how to utilize them to your greatest benefit. It also has the knowledge of hidden treasures of the Earth.

The sycamore awakens the feminine energies of intuition, beauty and nourishment around us. It can open us to the energies of love and Nature and all their magnificent aspects. The sycamore will augment all connections to Nature, and its appearance in our life encourages us to draw upon the realm of Nature for health, abundance and inspiration.
