Children of Grandmother Earth, The Plant World

Each of the worlds have a wheel of their own.  Each of the directions dance with the Plant World in different ways.

For example, the sage holds its cleansing ability until it is burned, then it can be used to heal negative energies. Notice when cooking how herbs change the taste of food. You can learn to tune into their song and know exactly which herb to take when you need healing.

In the North are the fruits and flowers, the giver-receivers. The flowers are like a barometer, for they will receive the energy of their environment and wilt or thrive depending on whether the energy is negative or positive.

 

 

 

In the East are the trees called the “Standing Tree Nations.” The trees are giver-determiners. That the trees are prime givers is obvious. Did you know that the trees also determine the weather? The aura of a tree is most like that of humans (humans are the overall determiners). Therefore, when you need to give something away energetically, hugging a tree is a wonderful energy exchange.
