What is the connection between gardening, weeds, healing and consciousness?
It has been said:
– Let food be thy medicine
– You are what you eat
– I think therefore I am
I maintain that all plants can effect human consciousness and impart some healing. I do not think we fully understand the link between human consciousness, healing and the plant world.
I suspect that because ‘weeds’ are very close to Creation, they heal humans who use them for nutrition and medicine by diluting some of our artificiality with Creations vitality, so to speak. I struggle to explain this properly, but it has to do with raising or expanding consciousness.
As such, not only can a gardener help grow plants, but plants can help grow a gardener.
What kind of relationship do you have with your garden weeds?
How healthy are you?
