The Old Tree Metaphysical Shoppe and Healing Space was birthed in 2007. The foundation of Magick with which it was built upon, had been growing for over 30 years prior. Spirit has a way of bringing us just what we need, when we need it. The energy had always been in me (MareLin) and definitely in the land, but prior to moving to Washington, I lacked the location. When I moved to Washington things changed within me and I knew I was where I needed to be. Literally, as I sat at the roots of The Old Tree (my backyard). After the realization that I was home, I then focused my efforts on making my dream a reality.
Research of the land showed that it had been and is occupied by the Indigenous Peoples of the Coast Salish (Snoqualmie Tribe), this was also evidenced in the shadows of spirit that dance in the trees. With the knowledge of the previous (forever) land owners, also came the responsibility of paying my respects to them, the elementals, the fae, the others that dwell on the land, and to the land itself. This was the beginning of our journey together.
Through the 15 years I have lived in this space and on this land, my family has grown, with many twists and turns, just like the limbs of a tree. The Old Tree has been and continues to be my safe space. The land and its many spiritual residents continue to bless my family with protection, joy, and abundance, just as we continue to hold gratitude in our hearts and honor those that have walked this land, as well as the elemental beings that choose to roam here.
For several years now, The Old Tree has also been a safe and sacred space for the clientele and those in The Moon Tribe that have visited. As a Wholistic Health Practitioner, I see many drawn here for healing. Some with massage, some with the use of energetic/alternative modalities, but all looking for intuitive healing of the body, mind, heart, and spirit. As they walk in, the roots embrace them with love and comfort, and I weave the intuitive healing into the being.
The Old Tree Metaphysical Shoppe and Healing Space has morphed throughout the past five years, just as I have. Neither a He nor She, but They (The Old Tree), has become a beacon for those that need guidance, support, healing, and assistance. This space has grown in its energy which is amplified by the magickal work that is done here. As it became something new, it required a new name. As it is now, has always been, and will continue to be, it has earned the title of Sanctuary.
It is a Sanctuary to all Spirits, and all Spiritual Aspects. The land is an entity of its own. It is they, I am me, together becoming We - The Old Tree Spiritual Sanctuary
