Banksia (Banksia integrifolia)
Through the transmutation of fire, it plays a vital role in the rebirth of this tree. On one level it could possibly kill it, but it also stimulates the opening of seed bearing follicles and facilitates the germination of new seeds in the ground - through death comes life. .
This can be reflected within ourselves and how the banksia tree can work within us.
It is a tree of rebirth and spiritual connection, opening the intimate pathways to the higher self so personal wisdom can be rediscovered. Working with this tree brings about vitality, a patience for the self and own journey of wisdom. .

(Written wisdom from Justin Moikeha Asar and evolutionary herbalism )
Turquoise, stone of the spirit of the earth, allows you to gently reconnect down, grounding your energy. She is a master healer, able to offer the true cause of dis-ease then the pathway to cure with clear expression on and between all levels of self, spiritual to physical. Did you know that the more bluer the stone, the more it opens to spirit, while the presence of green opens one up to the goddess and the nature of earth. It is from this that Turquoise gets it's simple purpose with the human race 'The spirit of the Earth.'
I am a river, blue with the ray of communication; lie quiet and in blessing of Ra look into the endless sky. Feel me open you to the purity, clarity and art of truthful voice, listen well as the Grandmother speaks her song and let it dance in your every cell.
