The Immortal

English Yew Tree Wand

Britain is unique in having the largest number of ancient Yews in the world and the English Yew trees can be as old as 4000 years; their presence in the landscape spanning the ages from our distant past up to our present. Given this, it is no wonder that the Yew tree is associated with immortality, regeneration, transformation and access to the Otherworld and our ancestors.

Many of our Yew trees are to be found in churchyards and because of their age, it is obvious that they were planted there long before the church was built and quite a lot of them are growing on the sites of blind springs within the churchyards. At St. Mary’s church in Painswick, the churchyard has 99 Yew trees, all of which are on springs and so they act as markers and protections for these sacred spots. The ancestors were extremely important to the Celts and so the Yew tree was especially sacred to them. Carvings on Yew wood have been found at the ancient sites of springs and wells and so were probably given as votive offerings. Yew groves were planted by the Druids along ancient trackways, on sacred sites, hilltops and burial grounds. Tribal leaders and chieftans were buried beneath Yew trees in the belief that their knowledge and wisdom would join with the Dryad of the Yew and be accessible to the tribe and their ancestors for generations to come.

The Yew tree is sacred to Hecate and the Crone aspect of the Goddess; both are guardians of the underworld, death and the afterlife; it is the gateway for contacting the ancestors, for journeying to the Otherworld, it is the link to spiritual guidance through your ancestors, guides and guardians in the Otherworld.

The Yew wood wand has been used for centuries to summon spirits and for any Otherworld communication. It is the wand of Samhain, when contact with the world of spirit and our ancestors is most accessible.

This wand is called “The Immortal” and is made from Yew wood from one of the ancient Yew trees which stands at the base of our local iron-age hillfort. It has been pyrographed with the runes of Othel; the rune for strengthening spiritual ancestry and for gaining past-life wisdom, Eihwaz; the rune of the Yew Tree and the bindrune of Heimdalls; the rainbow bridge that connects our world to that of the Gods and the ancestors. The guardian of the Bifrost is the one to give us access to the spirit realm and the abode of our ancestors.

This wand is a “one off”; although we may make other Yew wood wands, no two will ever be the same or from the same tree.

It measures 19” in length.
