The Essence

A plant initiation or dieta is a period of time dedicated to honouring and being with one particular plant to be initiated into its world, where a bond of communication is formed between the initiate and the plant spirit. This bond is unique to each person and forms the basis upon which healing, wisdom and insights can be received. It is also a process where we are taken out of our comfort zone in order to understand ourselves better and transcend the conditionings of the heart and mind. External and internal reality become one as we expand into deeper relationship with our self and with nature.

The Hazel tree holds a reverential place in the British Isles sitting at the heart of mythology and magic. According to legend, Hazel grows inside the palace of the Celtic god of poetry, magic and warriorship, Manannan Mac Lir and the nuts of the Hazel are eaten by the wisest of animal spirits, the salmon. Many Celtic deities carry a Hazel wand or rod as symbol of their connection to the higher realms. Known also as Coll it is synonymous with druidic wisdom and the attainment of divine knowledge. 

Associated with Mercury, the air element and also the sun, Hazel has such powerful life-force which traverses worlds it is a highly creative and inspirational tree, offering these gifts to us as we connect with its spirit. A powerful ally for creatives, healers, magic workers and those on the path of self-knowledge, the spirit of Hazel is one of the easiest tree spirits to connect with yet it can offer the most profound initiations, bringing both beginners and advanced shamanic practitioners into a deeper relationship with the healing power of the inner realms of nature.
