Shiwawaku Coumarouma odorata, shihuahuacu (she-wa-wa-coo)
Sometimes we are aware that there is a bigger version of ourselves waiting to step out. We allow self-critical and judgemental thoughts hold us back, stopping us from reaching our full potential. We pay too much attention to what others think and the negative thoughts in our mind, rather than trusting and being guided by our psychic intuition and what’s in our heart. This causes great unhappiness as we battle against our true nature and our own personal life path. Connect to this tree for transmuting negative energies and allowing inner transformation to take place. This essence is also good for for releasing deep rooted sadness and grief. The colour associated with this essence is purple, representing psychic intuition and transformation. Purple is the most powerful wavelength in the colour spectrum due to it having the most energy. This colour is spiritual and creative.
Each essence has been prepared with its own medicine song, an icaro. Icaros are a form of communication between the shaman and the spirit world. The icaro is used to set the healing intention and to ask the tree for assistance. Each essence has been uniquely created by choosing certain qualities of each tree and calling forth its medicine with the icaro.

- Ancient Wisdom Tree
- This graceful magestic tree of ancient wisdom helped me understand one of the biggest issues in my life - a soul fragment. Amazing visions of love and true purple energy it helped me connect with norse and celtic magic, and evin Odin and Tolkein and tied it all back into the jungle seamlessly. It taught me icaros, revealed Christ and once or twice gave a glimpse of its divine nature a power so unbelievable that it defies description. I am left with visions of hugging its roots thankfully. Thanks Meemz
- Thank you Mimi
- I have to admit I was a little skeptical going in -particularly when you said the essences were homeopathic as I've always assumed homeopathy to be pure quackery but my goodness does this stuff work. My first week was a bit of an emotional roller coaster, with lots of tears and despair, but then at some point in the second week I felt my heart burst right open, and joy and divine love flooded in. It wasn't just an absence of pain, but an incredible feeling of happiness - as I had felt all last year after two retreats in the Amazon.
- Tree roots!
- Lately all my paths are leading towards Amazon. At the beginning I wasn't feeling much connection with the essence. After a few days of using it I started to have a dazzling feeling on the soles of my feet- like growing roots towards the ground. I still feel it all the time and felt a massive urge to walk barefoot! I just felt like taking my shoes off in the middle of London ;) and feel like my sole had rise! I had scheduled my psychic development course some time ago and it all had fallen into the same time frame while taking the Shiwawaku. I have learned so much form the course- more than I probably was aiming to. I have understood lots of insights about myself not even mentioning the amazing readings and trust that I have developed with my psychic work. I will definitely try more!
