White Pine (WISDOM)


Like a loving parent, White Pine holds you in her embrace, so that you feel safe, grounded, and still, and able to find the space for quiet reflection. She helps you to tap into the ancient wisdom stored in your heart and to release your worries, so that they can be absorbed by the earth.

Wisdom is defined as the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. It is the ability to have a sense of perspective and to see the “bigger picture” in all situations which requires a considerable amount of self-reflection.

Having these qualities does not automatically confer wisdom, as one has to be able to actually transmute these qualities into action, which is very hard to do on a daily basis! Why is it that when faced with a challenging situation, all wisdom seems to evaporate, and raw emotion steps in?

White Pine says that from her tall vantage point she can see that there is actually great wisdom stored in the experiences that trigger us. She encourages us to see ourselves as observers—as souls with bodies—rather than as bodies with souls. That is wisdom!

Consider: What do you remember?
