Ilexana is an ancient woodland spirit, an embodiment of the primal forest and the resilience to survive the harshest conditions. She keeps the Light burning through the darkest, coldest seasons, reminding us that warmth, life and abundance will return in due time. Holly branches symbolize the hardiness of evergreen plants, remaining steadfastly verdant throughout the winter's cold. Holly was believed to repel lightning strikes and was often planted near dwellings to protect them. Recent science has confirmed that the prickly shape of the leaves actually dissipates electrical energy, confirming this ancient wisdom. Holly is also said to ward off other forms of negative energy and evil forces. Ilexana's deep memory can connect us to the collective wisdom of Nature, bringing profound Dreams that can offer us insight and clarity.
