naming of a clan is a very sacred process. It is not dictated by the
creativity alone of the facilitator, but is rather more of a download of information that best represents the existing energy
of the group as a whole. Through intuition, meditation, inspiration,
imagination, observation and deep listening the clan is named, not by a
human, but through a human by the unseen energy source that connects us
all one to another.
Although human issues are
universal, what is so amazing about the dynamic of each clan is that the
particular members of a clan hold a piece of each other's puzzle. Upon first appearance, this may not
seem so, but the wheel is a study in this very principal, as we all get
exactly what we need, exactly when we need it, in perfect order, every
time. The people come together, time after time after time in service to
We are but reflections of one another, until we are
reflecting only what is inside of our heart of hearts. For it is then
that we are not so much reflectors, as we are receptors and projectors.
It is then that we are
projecting the most essential part of our highest and finest selves
from the very core of our being. And so it is wise to pay attention to
everything and everyone that comes into your space. Let no blessing go unnoticed and no message go
unheard. Be not fooled by the wrapping paper on the gift.
And so with this, we have the
naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe:
The Silver Birch Clan
INCARNATED ANGEL – NATURE SPIRITS - THREE GRACES: CHARM, BEAUTY,
CREATIVITY- LIGHTWORKER – SOUL ARTIST – MASTERY OF LIGHT HEALING
SILVER BIRCH TREE’S POWER
The Silver Birch Tree is the keeper of many qualities which greatly
assist the evolution of humanity as she stands in service to the Light,
to people and the earth. Some of the words for the Silver Birch include
pioneer, beauty and grace, renewal, and purification. Silver Birch wood
burns wet or dry and very hardy, but requires a great deal of light at
its crown. Not only is Silver
Birch wood, bark, sap and leaves used for many practical purposes, she
is also among the most stately of trees, in lore known as, Lady of the
Wood. Think Galadriel, of Lothlórien, fairest of all elves and you will
understand the essence she keeps.
Beithe, the Celtic birch, is the first tree of the Ogham, the Celtic
tree alphabet. It was celebrated during the festival of Samhain
(otherwise known as Halloween), the start of the Celtic year, when
purification was also important. Bundles of birch twigs were used to
drive out the spirits of the old year. Gardeners still use the birch
besom, or broom, to 'purify' their gardens. Besoms were also of course
the archetypal witches' broomsticks, used in their shamanic flights.
Interestingly, the birch also has strong fertility connections with the
celebrations of Beltane, the second, summer, half of the Celtic year
(nowadays celebrated as May Day). Beltane fires in Scotland were
ritually made of birch and oak, and a birch tree was often used as a
living maypole. As birch is one of the first trees to come into leaf, it
heralds the emergence of spring. This gives birch strong associations
with new beginnings and new opportunities.
Deities associated with birch are mostly love and fertility goddesses,
such as the northern European Frigga and Freya. Eostre (from whom we
derive the word Easter), the Anglo Saxon goddess of spring was
celebrated around and through the birch tree between the spring equinox
and Beltane. Birch is ruled over by Venus - both the planet and the
The Silver Birch is here specifically to bring us to our higher angelic
nature and to help us assimilate this part of ourselves into the
physical. When you hear the call of Silver Birch, you are responding to
the request of your soul to become one with Spirit and to transform your
Spiritual Warrior aspects into more grace-filled, higher vibrating,
highly creative energies. This is taking your personal power to an
entirely new level, one in which you may have not ever totally imagined.
Is it possible to be a being of the Light on planet earth, you may ask?
Can angels come to earth? Can they survive in this environment? Journey
with me, the Silver Birch says, to find out.
There is no simple, nor less dramatic way to say this. You have reached
the center of your Self, you have touched your Soul, you have been given
a potent glimpse of the reality of your being or are very close to it
and you are ready to receive your true angelic nature into the totality
of your being. What you understand about angels may be relatively
intellectual at this time, even if you have worked with them to a
certain extent. What you may not realize is that your physical body is a
vessel for the Light…and you are the Light. You are the intention of a
cosmic force so powerful and so true that there is no way that you can
fail. This is your next evolution and in fact the next evolution of all
humankind. Owning your light is not egoic, not owning it is. You don't
belong to yourself alone, you belong to the world.
Forget what you may think you know about angels who live in the heavenly
realms. You are a creature that entirely stands alone in the cosmos, a
marriage of the most divine order. You are a human angel. You are a
Rainbow - hue-man – a fusion of color (light spectrum) and sound
(vibration). You are the culmination of Earth, Water, Air and Fire +
ether. The ether or Spirit that enlivens your being is actually the
upper realms of the nature spirits that are accessible to you here in
the physical and are supporting you. They watch and they listen to your
spirit’s communication. They respond by sending you messages through the
natural world and your intuition. Trees broadcast information through
their roots and branches, much like humans broadcast and magnetize
through their thoughts and feelings.
Silver Birch says, I am not the only being who can assist you at this
time. You are becoming one with the earth in consciousness, ascending
with your feet on the ground. And you move well through the realms of
magic, mystery, beauty and intrigue. You are here to bring the earth to
the depths of the experience of love and beauty. To help the world
embrace mystery and the unknown joys that lie ahead. As the world moves
out of suffering and edges at the precipice of bliss, you are part of
the band of earth angels who can show the world what wings are for. You
will be among the first to fly in this new order of angels. And you will
do so with charm and grace. Your wings will create a magnetic field of
epic proportions and other will want to fall into a state of grace, as
well. You will help make this not only possible for them, but attractive
to them. But first you must complete your own transformation.
The Elven race, the keepers of the Lady of the Wood, is guiding you
through the power of your imagination, your creativity, your
compassionate and loving heart and the Eternal Will to Good that is
deeply embedded in your angelic nature. This compassion may have been
your undoing earlier in your human existence, and in other emanations,
but that was simply a part of your process. In this time, here and now,
in your physical incarnation as an earth angel – your compassion is your
greatest strength. For you have learned the great secret; you must first
be compassionate with yourself.
This is how the incarnation becomes completed as you set this vibration
up within the holy of holies within your heart. Any last vestige of
judgment or harm to the self, any disparaging thoughts about your
journey will leave you now as your true Light burns brightly and the
Truth of Who and What you really are shines through. As you feel the full
ramifications of what has been being born within and through you, you
will be bowed and humbled, for truly all Kings and Queens are in service
to humanity. And now it is time to step onto the throne, radiate your
Light and be of service in your own unique way.
Elves are inspired by J.R.R.
Tolkien's Catholic theology — as representing the state of Men in Eden
who have not yet "fallen" — similar to humans but fairer and wiser, with
greater spiritual powers, keener senses, and a closer empathy with
nature. Tolkien wrote of them:
“ They are made by man in his own image and likeness; but freed from
those limitations which he feels most to press upon him. They are
immortal, and their will is directly effective for the achievement of
imagination and desire."
The Elven gatekeeper with his Silver Birch staff beckons you forward to
reveal your wings.

Silver Birch is associated with bark that you can write upon, new
invention (lots of uses for all the parts of the tree), brooms (clearing
and shielding of energy).
Often planted in clusters of 3, associated with the Three Graces, Lady
of the Wood and first tree in Celtic alphabet. The association with the
number 3 has a few other important associations: the triad of deities,
ancestors, and nature spirits is called the "Three Kindreds". There are
other triads in Celtic Druidry, such as the "three realms" of the
Underworld (associated with the ancestors), the Heavens (associated with
the gods), and this world (associated with the nature spirits); these
are similar to the three worlds of the Celts, and to the Norse realms of
Niflheim, Asgard, and Midgard. There are also three parts to this world;
the Land, the Sea, and the Sky. Elven, Fae Realms implicated – Elven
Star or Heptogram (seven pointed star).
