Apple Tree Branch A Simple yet powerful Talisman~ Key to Annwn~ Celtic Otherworld~ Samhain Magick ~ Ritual Object~ Limited Offering~
•Using a natural wand made from the apple tree is a very old and very sacred practice done to access the Annwn, also known as the Otherworld, especially during the most auspicious times of the year such a Samhain or Beltane. The Apple has long been closely associate with the Annwn. The Celts and many others believe that this is a place of great power, where priestesses guard and protect the mysteries of the Tree of Life~ Avalon comes from a Celtic word “Avaloch” meaning Place of Apples. The apple-tree is a Celtic Tree of Life, upholder of the Worlds above and below and the source of all spiritual sustenance. In Irish tales, it grows upon an Otherworld island and bears the fruit of immortality which emits a heavenly fragrance, is able to satisfy all hunger, heal all ills, and yet always remains whole. So it is no surprise that to access this place of great mystery, one needs to hold the key, a direct connection to the Tree that is guarded there, an apple tree branch, taken with respect, with an offering~ I recommend adding one drop of your blood to your Apple wand, this shows a sacrifice made to the Apple tree and the wand will be more likely to guide you properly on your quest to the Otherworld on Samhain~
