From the book The Wisdom of Trees by Jane Gifford: “The ancient Celts regarded the hazel as the Tree of Knowledge. All knowledge and understanding was bound, sweet and concentrated, in the hazelnut’s kernel, so all wisdom was combined, as the saying goes, ‘in a nutshell.’ The hazel is a tree of magic and healing. It is the poet’s tree whose sacred nuts conferred inspiration and immortality and were the food of the gods.”
The hazel encourages us to seek out knowledge and inspiration in all ways and in all things. Meditate on the essence or energy of wisdom and you will gain creative inspiration. Be pliant like the limbs of the hazel tree in your approach to learning. Be open to connect with the Divine Source of all things. Learn, teach, communicate and heal!
Know that you do know!
