27. Divinatory

Divinatory again suggests psychotropic species. Wrong! Mankind has divined from stones, bones, sticks, and seeds since forever. There are those who can divine from clouds, wind, rustling leaves or the path by which water travels. In fact divination and healing can be accomplished with anything by anyone. Divinatory therefore refers to plants that are believed to enhance divinatory abilities or needs.

Anecdotal: Malus medicine directly relates to nurturing predisposition and gifts that require continued, persistent care. It is supportive in decision making when one is faced with a myriad of choices. Malus is entreated to enhance tantric practices that lead to knowledge and enlightenment. It is a gatekeeper and linked to the concept that immortality is attained through inspiration and wisdom. Malus is love medicine that is carried. It supports prosperity, focus of attention and wellbeing. As longevity medicine it renews vigor and youth. This property could be attributed to the belief that groves of Malus are sacred gateways into other worlds where time is elongated and knowledge older and more complete. The same convictions link Malus to divination, visionary experiences and protection. Malus was once so respected that placentas were hung in Malus trees to insure children would be strong and healthy. It is particularly valuable for younger male students enduring difficult apprenticeships. This feature connects Malus to the support of challenging rebirths in general. The sanctifying nature of Malus makes it powerful medicine for singers and resolves spiritual pain and endopsychic wounds that impair self-expression. Handling Malus requires attunement to cyclical nature and profound awareness of the subtleties that affect the flow of energy to achieve perfect harmony within nature.  Malus sylvestris (crabapple) is not to be confused with Malus domestica, cultivated as apples, which is not native to the British Isles.
