Anecdotal: Phragmites is another hugely diverse species and one of the most interesting to me. The spirit within Phragmites is invoked to exorcise the most malevolent types of offenders such as those that succeed in completely breaking ones spirit. It then goes further to resolve all associated endopsychic wounds. Phragmites is revered for its wide applications for fire drills and arrows, pipes and pipes stems, mats and weaving rods, seed beads and fringe for dresses. It is used in fine basketry and prayer sticks. The stems of Phragmites are rendered into medicine tubes. Once polished and painted the tubes are fitted with handles and filled with herbs. The connection to prayers and expression is formidable. Reed arrows were once used on bows to produce musical sounds. Its stems go to clappers that sustain the rhythm of sacred songs and dancing. The songs heard in a stand of reeds are spiritual messages that contain the secrets of the inner depth, personal power, strength and endurance needed to withstand the challenges of life. Reed pipes and flutes made from Phragmites convey the vibratory forces of the universe revealing that flexibility and adaptability are the true measures of personal power, creating clarity of direction well rooted in spiritual identity. The same pipes convey prayers and creative thought. Phragmites delivers needed information from spirits whose messages are conveyed on the wind regarding inner fortitude, Creation and ancestral memories.
