The way plants and nature make me think about myself was one of the many reasons I joined this coven and started this wise healing path.
I just know from before how one tiny beautiful flower, a bee, a tiny spider in her nest, the mighty sky, the beauty lf the moon, crying out to mother nature alone just her and I, yeah it all, how it has saved me so so many times, draged my focus in another direction when demons came to chew me up. It has been my medicine for all life.
But I didn't really know how much I could do in medicinal ways with what I had around me. That I could heal myself. I didn't know I could so easy make changes without what I thought was 'something you needed an education for'.
I choosed Dill as my first ally to get to know on a deeper level and to work with. I have had her all around me in my garden all summer and when it comes to herbs in food she pretty much been with me for all my life.
Dill, from Old Norse Dilla, means to lull, to calm or sooth. She has been known used for thousands of years in many big ancient cultures and comes with so many different uses and help. A symbol of love and protection which is something I've needed but missed in many ways during life.
She has helped humans over the centuries to relieve stomachissues such as ailments and gasproblems, she's antibacterial, she can normalize your menstrual cycle, be a pain relief, help for cramps too, with insomnia, hiccups. She can help prevent bacterial overgrowth. Reumatic problems. The more I dig the more I find. The more I realize...
Suffering from endometriosis and being trapped in a body that gets worse every day now when it gets colder she reminded me I need to take more care of myself and there she was. Everywhere I planted her seeds.
Both leaves, flower and seeds can give you medicine and first she came into my life some years ago because I was in need of spiritual protection from harm when I was not treated well by other humans. She's been protecting my door for bad spirits and persons ever since and she's been one of my sacred plants I carry for protection.
Now there she was again, offering her medicine, reminding me, being by my side right when I might need it when I because of my economic situation and my distrust for the modern doctors not have many other options as it is but to start look around me, more closely. I am forever grateful for been given the tools I need here. I can't wait to start working for real with this ally.
That's why I feel so hard, this is where my soul led me when it cried for healing, this is where I am today and I'm sure finding healing, answers and medicine here. I do and I am learning so I can pass it on. Something valuable.
In our struggles if we choose to see our allies, if we really start to look and listen, somewhere there is always a plant around that is keeping their eye on us.
