It would contain all the elements, placed on a map, because He is a journey and He is something hidden, something to be found. He is something protected.
“No one comes to the Father except through me.”-Jesus
The Son is only to reign for awhile until handing the Kingdom back over to the Father. He is magic. He is a mystery. He wants to be unraveled. If I built Him an altar, it would contain Mystic Merlinite, a Selenite tower, Lapis Lazuli in fragrant oil, pinecones and cedar, and of course, quartz crystal. I couldn’t not also include petrified wood and the labradorite triangle to place on Him like a Wizard’s hat.
An offering to Him would be a bundle of cedar sprigs and white phlox that represents the purity of where He abides, and I would like to give Him emeralds.
“The cedar tree has been revered for its spiritual significance for thousands of years. Its wood was used for the doors of sacred temples and burned in cleansing ceremonies for purification. The tree was thought to house important gods and to be an entrance to higher realms. The English word cedar comes from the Hebrew “qatar,” meaning to smudge, indicating cedar wood was used in purification rituals and cleansing. In the Himalayas, cedar is called “deodar” from the Sanskrit word “devdar,” meaning timber of the gods. Ancient Sumeria revered the cedar over 7,000 years ago, calling it the World Tree, the abode of Ea, their chief god. The Bible has numerous references to the cedar, including its use in the Ark of the Covenant. The cedar has been used for healing, purification and for spiritual protection. Its spiritual properties are supposed to promote peaceful thoughts and help interpret messages from the inner self.”
“Cedar supports our spiritual quest by exploring the mysteries of faith as we search for truth and meaning in our life.
To ancient Sumerians, the cedar forests of Lebanon, Cedrus libani, were “Home of the Divine Ones”. Enlil, the Sumerian “Lord of Wind” protected these cedar forests until humans cut them down to build temples. In 950 BCE, the Cedars of Lebanon were used to build King Solomon’s Temple and the House of the Forest of Lebanon in Jerusalem. Both were places of worship and faith.
Around 620 CE, the Prophet Muhammad experienced his visionary Night Journey. In his vision he saw the Heavenly Lote Tree (Sidr) standing over the ruins of King Solomon’s temple, which marked the seventh heaven beyond the boundaries of existence. Lote and Sidr are both Arabic words for Cedrus and Ziziphus trees.
Himalayan Cedar, Cedrus deodara, derives its name from the Sanskrit word devadaru, meaning the “tree of the divine ones.” Deva is the root of the words “divine” and “deity” while daru means both “tree” and “true”.
These stories remind us that cedar trees were seen as wisdom keepers and their forests were temples. For this reason cedar offers deep insights into the ancient mysteries of faith. For some, faith has evolved into religions that interpret the natural world for us. Cedar reminds us to seek out our truth by trusting our inner wisdom.”

As I was typing this, I saw the word “Accepted” written across the picture above of my prayer and gift. That is so sweet.
He is magic.
Love, I will find you.
