) is also known as Larch. She is from the Pinacea family - the same family as the pines. She is quite a unique being on many levels, even in the way she works with her needles. She is the only coniferous family that sheds her needles in the fall like a deciduous tree. Put that info metaphor…breaking the mold, shedding that which not longer serves, courage and trust to navigate hard times ‘naked’.
The first time I ever worked with her, I put her on and laid down to meditate. I literally felt all of my chakra centers come into a perfect straight line.
Later I learned that she is often used for aiding in grounding and centering our many personalities that we hold within ourselves. We are so multidimensional and it is imperative we have alignment in each and every one to function in harmony and grace. Sweet tamarack definitely is someone to lean on here.
She is my go-to when I feel any dissonance in being ‘out of balance’. She has a huge magnitude of abilities in supporting the physical - from coughs to skin to fatigue. This makes perfect sense to me - think of the bike rim that is slightly bent. It throws off everything and strange compensation is necessary to keep riding. When the emotional and spiritual is in balance, that will assist the physical to be in balance too.
Tamarack is so unique in that being a tree, she isn’t just grounding, but she can help you reconfigure center too…if you choose...
