I call forth from the core of my Self and connect to the core of my culture. It reaches through me in shamanic connection to the core of the earth. Touch me and teach me. I give myself up to all of your teachings but only good may cross my path. Any other and 10 times the evil shall come back to visit you. Evil may not come unto me or mine or come into my home. Tell me your thoughts and may we visit together in our realms of learning. May Nantosuelta bless you

Interesting way you have included a curse as well as a blessing in the same post. The Green Man is the spirit of nature. The Green Man is the ever-returning energy of vegetation and wild Nature. His magic is celebrated througout the world, but he is most often associated with northern Europe and Celtic cultures. The great cathedrals of Europe are adorned with thousands of GreenMan gargoyles and carvings. The Dark-Ages, the Middle-Ages and the Renaissance saw European indigenous religions and Nature under constant attack by the christian church. During the church's most virulent wars on the people's belief in the sanctity of Nature, stone masons carved images of the GreenMan and Sheela-Na-Gig into christian cathedrals as part of the ornamentation. The presence of the GreenMan and the Sheela-Na-Gig remained strong and constant source of strength to the people. The GreenMan's image silently echoed the spirit of the Sacred Cycles of Nature. Today the GreenMan is re-emerging into our consciousness, along with the Goddess. His presence brings balance and energy to the reclaiming of our ancient heritage. Throughout the ages the Goddess has often appeared with a male aspect in the form of Horus, Tammuz, the Horned God, GreenMan and many others. The return of the GreenMan brings new hope and understanding of the true strengths of balanced masculine energy. For too long, men have been isolated from that part of themselves that honors the Sacred Mother, the divine in Nature, and the true divinity in themselves. Drumming, piping and chanting draws the GreenMan close. The slow, steady healing rhythm of drumming opens the psyche and expanded awareness, attracting the playful and powerful aspects of the Greenman.
The mysteries of Nature are waiting to reveal themselves to you, just outside the realm of the mundane. . . . . If you follow the path of the dancing Cernunnos, you may find that the world is a much more magical place than you ever imagined. . . . . Embrace a tree, relax in a garden, or sit in a wooded glen, to find the GreenMan. Focus on the mystery of a single clump of grass or a leaf. . . . . . If you are patient and engrossed in your appreciation of simple nature, the GreenMan will come to you!

A legendary pagan deity who roams the woodlands of the British Isles and Europe. He usually is depicted as a horned man peering out of a mask of foliage, usually the sacred oak. He is known by other names such as "Green Jack, "Jack-in-the-Green" and "Green George." He represents spirits of trees, plants and foliage. It is believed he has rain making powers to foster livestock with lush meadows. He was frequently depicted in medieval art, including church decorations.
Green George, as he is usually called in spring Pagan rites, is represented by a young man dressed head to foot in greenery, who leads the festival procession. In various festivals, Green George, or an effigy of him, is dunked in a river or pond to ensure that there will be enough rain to make the meadows and pastures green. It is also believed by some the Green Man shares an affinity with the forest-dwelling fairies since green is the fairy color. In some locals of the British Isles the fairies are called "Greenies" and "Greencoaties." In the myth of "The Fairy Children," there appears two fairy children, a brother and a sister, who have green skin and claim to be of a race with green skin
