Excerpt from Honoring The Wisdom in Nature Pocketbook Edition with 54 Plant Essence Card
“Like a soft breeze caressing your cheek, I am
here to listen, witness, and tell you that it is
okay to let go. That it is okay to be whole, to
be healed, and to live life. The past has its
place and it is not in the present. You honor
your experience by giving it to the Divine when
holding onto it begins to harm you. I am there
for you. You will be okay.”

Habitat: Mullein grows into a tall spear like plant in well-lit, open soil sprouting through the ground in the spring from long lived seeds.

the body. By doing so, it makes the body a safe place. You begin to
see what you are carrying, the ease and importance in healing, and
releasing tension and trauma. It buffers the intensity of emotions to
be able to see the truth of the pattern and what to do to release it. It
heals the woundedness and belief that you need to remember, to hold

pain and suffering somaticized in the body causing physical, emotional,
mental, and spiritual dysfunction.
Mullein largely acts in a physical way by cooling the gastrointestinal tract, stimulating blood flow to the brain, relaxing muscles that are chronically tight, and strengthening the spine. It helps to release self-inflicted pain and suffering by releasing emotions being held
in the body causing imbalances. Mullein also energizes the body by balancing the chakra system in a soft gentle way that optimizes flow and an overall feeling of vitality.
