Excerpt from Honoring The Wisdom in Nature Pocketbook Edition with 54 Plant Essence Cards
“All is life. All is right. Become like the
willow, owing in the breeze. Dance when it
is windy. Rest when it is right. Listen to your
own rhythms. Dance in the light. Grieve for a
moment. It will be all right. Starlight will bless
you. You will be all right.”
Keywords: digging, bending, caressing, living, excited, fun
Habitat: Wood Betony can be found growing in dry grassland and
meadows in most of Europe, Western Asia and North Africa. Pedicularis
canadensis is also known as Wood Betony in the United States but is
not the same plant.
Wood Betony is all about enjoying life. Excitement, high energy, happy
to be living. Sees tasks as exciting rather than arduous, making work
fun. Relaxes tension held anywhere in the body. Makes you feel like
dancing. Envision the plant dancing to the song, “Celebration Time.”
Invites you to party down and enjoy your self. Promotes loosening up
and giggling. Laughter as a way of releasing tension and not taking
life so seriously. See how the power of laughter and fun can change
your life, heal deeply and without effort.
- Tension: Upper neck tension, digestive tension, muscular tension, and tension headaches.
- Anxiety, worry, holding emotions in the body. Partying to escape.
- Getting stuck in the dullness of life. Ruminating in the depth of emotions.
“Have fun! It will be all right.”
