(C)omfrey and (C)alendula
Emotional and psychological wounds are being steadily mapped and brought into full consciousness at this time. Our Way of interfacing with Reality continues to toggle and reconfigure itself. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever...
The blackberry bushes have provided abundant fruit this season. The fruit is not free. As I reach out to pluck these sweet ornaments, thorns and poison brush against my skin. I am tenderized and made ill.
My forearm swells up like a hill covered in small, itchy bumps. What shall the remedy be?
Organic Solutions to The Wound
Plucked organic Calendula and Comfry from my Garden. Blended the two flowers with Aloe and applied to wound. Let it bake in the sun and watch it scab.
Calendula works topically to soothe skin irritation and has anti-viral properties. Comfrey contains a cell proliferant that speeds up the natural replacement of body cells and penetrates beneathe the surface skin layers to work on your deep tissue. Aloe acts as the binding lubricant and relieves uncomfortable sensations.
Harvesting Remedies from the Mind Garden
Entering uncomfortable situations and thought patterns may feel threatening to the Body. Observe the way your breath changes and muscles tense up, heart beats faster and vision is slightly impaired. These physical effects can be controlled through your mind. Laziness keeps us from IMAGINING THE CURE.
As without, so within.
Calendula - Addressing the mental viruses (noisy negative feedback loops)
Comfrey - Penetrating beneathe the surface for cell regeneration (deconstructing old thought habits and generating healthier meta-belief systems)
Aloe - The soothing, liquid coat that binds together CC (surface and depth healing processes)
