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
- 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.
