She who connects us both deep within the Earth through her roots and high up in the Heavens with her branches. She is the portal to the spiritual realms, the tree of life. She is the source of life, a force that connects all lives, or the cycle of life and death itself. She is here to bring healing to whomever feels drawn to her. A teacher of self love and firm boundaries.
Mother of Magic is my 3rd project in the Sacred Familiar Doll course that I’m currently working through. As soon as I began to read through the lesson I started to envision her. She was a strong force wanting to be born. And once I did the lessons meditation I had a completely clear vision of how to bring her to life.
She began with her sacred bundle inside her belly, filled with yarrow for healing and love. Lavender for serenity and devotion. Chamomile for peace and calmness. And Sage to connect to the spiritual realm and enhance intuition.
I wasn’t sure on how to create her branches at first and if my idea would actually work, but it went so smoothly. They sit upon her head perfectly with her hair wrapped around to hold them snuggly in place. Her roots on her dress and sleeves were time consuming but so very worth it. They depict how she connects us to all of things. And she offers you the beautiful little acorns that were gifted to her by the big oak tree in my back yard. Just as I was working on her there was a storm and the tree dropped a few branches, the acorns are still small and green, but they go so perfectly with her.
Last is the adorable surprise that rests upon the Mother’s back, her sweet little sapling. The little one also has a sacred bundle of the same herbs as mother. Wrapped in a multicolored merino wool. This little one came to life so simply, and the pair are just breath taking together.
May you find peace and love as you look upon them, I just know they will one day bring great healing to someone special.
