Truth, steadfast knowledge, protection
To the ancient Celtic people, oak was the protector,
provider, benevolent king of the trees. Oak provided
the people shelter in the form of building material,
protection by providing material for weapons, and
nourishment through its edible acorns.
Oak is an excellent healing wood. Connected strongly
to the Earth, it can easily channel natural life energies,
and help sense where healing might be needed. This
wood helps center the mind, allowing it to focus on the
task at hand and ignore distractions. It can also help
bring about desirable change in love matters. Oak help
promote both observation and intuition.
Oak provides a very balanced energy, skewed neither
toward the light or the darkness.
