Plants of the Sweet Beneath.

 

The Plant Kingdom is full of ancient wisdom. All plants hold unique qualities of intelligence, with varied archetypal, planetary, mythic and therapeutic powers. Conscious connection with plants as teachers is a vast realm that is integral to our surviving and thriving as a species. 

We will reference and invoke a few key plants during this program that are specifically aligned with the Initiation by Descent journey. Have a read, feel into it and if you feel called to you may wish to organise yourself to physically engage with a chosen plant ally. 

 The plants we will work with most closely are

  • Rose
  • Pomegranate
  • Ayahuasca
  • Brugmansia
  • Medicinal Mushrooms (psilocybin, amanita muscaria, reishi, cordyceps, lions mane etc)

 Flower and Plant Essences

One way you could connect with your chosen plant is through taking a flower or plant essence daily during the journey. You could order this online if postal services are currently working in your region or make a flower essence.

This would work well with rose and is probably the safest, gentlest choice.

Here is a guide to making flower essences at home from a plant lady I really respect.

Also here is an in depth article about flower essences from one of our guest mentors Skye Indira

Alternatively you could purchase a pre-made essence of any of these plants listed. Just have a google for a provider who can ship to you right now.

Taking tinctures, teas or powders.

If you wish to engage with medicinal mushrooms or a strong rose tea, you could also look at ways to simply start taking these as herbal remedies. A cup of rose tea or a dose of reishi tincture or powder taken intentionally is one idea. 

Please consult appropriate sources and check for any counter-indications if you have existing health issues.

ALL plants will be able to connect with you more easily if you have a clean whole foods diet with limited sugar, alcohol, processed sugars, pharmacuticals etc. I also feel based on my training in Peru, that removing pork and dairy from the diet greatly enhances plant spirit connection. 

I will be doing some FB and Instagram videos and lives about these methods of plant spirit connection so follow me on IG: @pathoftherose and FB: path of the rose to stay updates. 

NOTE: You are all adults, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca and Brugmansia are powerful psychedelic medicines, and taking them in their active forms should only be done with a lot of preparation and I am not advising anyone to do so in this format as that would be out of integrity. If you do wish to explore micro-dosing or that sort of thing you are free and sovereign to do so.
