Anecdotal: Ulmus can be rendered into baskets, mats, lodge poles, mortars and pestles, harness rope for sleds, cord, fishnets and net for snowshoes. It makes excellent tinder. In ritual it enhances endurance and heightens empathy towards the needs of others. Ulmus teaches that compassion shown towards others is returned equally. It is the medicine of harmony, confidence, balance, regeneration, and fidelity. Ulmus affords protection to friends departing on journeys. The spirit within Ulmus is invoked to address a broken heart that has led to a breakdown in expression or personal shields as well as a loss of interest in going on. Its mechanism is tied to the severe, even dangerous losses of spiritual energy, productive rest, sense of vision or personal power. Ulmus is one of the quintessential medicines of birth and rebirth that restores stability during transitions into new lives. It is gentle and sympathetic rather than cathartic.
