Continuing on after the cleaning and drying follows the selection process. Sometimes specific commissions are asked for and the exact piece of wood needs to be matched to the intention.
I feel energies coming from the pieces when I hold, touch and caress them. That is how I choose pieces for commission work, this is also how I work with the pieces that are going up for general adoption. I feel them, have a conversation with them (sometimes out loud, often quietly) channel the intention of the piece itself and find what wants to be shown.
The energy comes from the within the wood, I add my energy and then the Angel breathes out the collective energy to the new owner.
It's a never ending circle
