California Sycamore – Alchemy

California Sycamore

Platanus racemosa Nutt.

Specimen sighted: San Diego, CA

Metaphysical attributes:*

Bark: Crushed by rubbing between your two hands. Look up to Father sky and ask for what you desire or want to manifest. Blow the bark from your palms into the air. Say Amen or Thank you. Can be used for abundance in crops and food, health and healing, particularly guides show me someone inhaling and bringing a lot of air into their throat, to heal the throat chakra and the throat, blessings to others.

Leaves: Same method, they may not crush as easily if fresh, but roll between your hands, say your intention, looking up to Father sky and blow the leaf (or leaves) out of your hand. Can be used as a poultice for healing. *

Fruit/Nut: Not used for anything, guides give me the idea that the spines on the seed would be inauspicious so not recommended.

Flower: Not recommended as I see if used in candle rituals the magic will defuse or snuff out.

Elementals & Nature Spirits associated: Healing elementals, some water elementals (undines and some mermaids) mostly, some mushroom spirits, fairies, some gnomes, elephant spirit guides and healers, I see here these elephant guides may help with the removal of obstacles or to keep things moving

Candle manifesting: Using the flower was not recommended as I saw the energy snuff out, using pieces of bark for manifesting has an effect but admittedly a weak one, don’t use the leaves

Healing abilities:*

  • Poultice: The leaves were suggested here to be used in a poultice for healing. When I googled I saw that it may be good for cold, cough, dysentery and as a pain killer.*
  • Powder: Not recommended
  • Tincture: Not recommended
  • Tea: Not recommended
  • Salve: Same as the poultice except they show me bark can be used as well in the salve.*
