According to legend, the ‘Ringing Red Pines’ of Red Pine Camp on Golden Lake in Ontario are very old, very special trees that over their lifetimes have accumulated so much energy that they start emitting a vibrating ring tone. It is believed that simply being in close proximity to these trees or having pieces of their wood hanging about your neck can produce beneficial effects on health and wellbeing.
Those who wear a small wooden Ringing Red Pine medallion as a pendant evoke feelings of goodwill in themselves and others. They gain talent, creativity, aptitude, positivity and luck. People who wear these pendants notice an increase in both their mental acuity and physical prowess. The medallions also help to overcome illnesses by accumulating positive energy over time and then giving it back to you whenever you most need it.
The pendant is made from branches of mature Red Pines. No damage is ever done to these trees. When worn, they should touch the skin—the side which touches your skin should never be painted or covered with a sealant—it should remain in its natural state so that the oils and smells of Ringing Red Pines may reach the skin and the nostrils. An all-natural leather, cotton or hemp cord should run width-wise across the top of the medallion and around the neck. You may create wonderful folk art on the outer side of your medallion– children and adults can tell their stories by wearing multiple medallions!
(This legend is inspired by a Russian one—the Ringing Cedars of Siberia. These Medallions and their legend were first introduced to Red Pine Camp in the summer of 2009 by Bruce and Rachel Firestone and their family, longterm Week 6 campers. These medallions also play a role in Prof Bruce’s new novel, Quantum Entity, We Are All ONE. Book 1 of his new trilogy is available at www.brucemfirestone.com.)
