Canary Island Pine
Pinus carariensis C. Sim.
Specimen sighted: San Diego, CA
Bark: It is not recommended to take bark from the tree and use for ritual purposes.
Leaves: Needles can be used in candle manifesting. Guides show me to break the needles in half, sprinkle over the flame or put in the wax of a candle. They show me someone praying over the candle with the needles asking for what they wish. Some areas of interest that the needles may give your ritual a boost in are abundance, love, money, food, harvest, and other areas as well. Not really used too much for health.
Can be used in a dish during other rituals, but in this case I see them intact. They tell me not as effective with this method.
You do not need to wait for the needles to drop to the ground to use them.
Fruit/Nut/Cone: Cone can be used for rituals, I see someone holding the cone with both hands, raising above their head and then crashing it on the rocks by using a swinging down motion and releasing it before it hits the rock. Pray and ask for what you desire. You may do this with cones that have already fallen to the ground, letting the tree keep its cone until it is ready to release them. Not recommended to pluck the cones from the tree.
Flower: Not recommended, instead guides say let the tree finish its reproduction cycle.
Elementals & Nature Spirits associated: Grounding elementals, elves, dwarves, butterflies (as a spirit animal/insect), caterpillar (denotes change and strength), some mushroom spirits.
Candle manifesting: Yes see leaves/needles above. The scales of the cone can be used as well for similar reason as the needles. They show me someone breaking off small parts of the cone and dropping them into the side of the lit candle or putting them in the wax. Never the bark. The bark is sacred.
