Yes with the issue of baneful herbs and psychoactive plants coming up .
I feel the need to learn more about this one
. Why , well today just this morning I asked the question why .
I remembered just after my ex and I split up to get myself up and out again & heal I began to attend art shows , classical concerts & foreign film .
One of the best films I've ever viewed was a Spanish Film The Spirit of the Beehive . It was an amazing movie of family dysfunction what people do with their unhappiness and how lost children can become when neglected .
The little girl the main character finds this mushroom .
The mushroom in the movie reminded me !
5 yrs ago when walking we came across three oak trees trying very hard to grow within the forest. This is a rarity in the boreal forest as it is mostly coniferous trees , some birch polar but rarely oak .
There was this one of the tallest
and then two others little babies struggling to grow
The boys and I prepared a ceremony . We made a special smudge and our ds brought his eagle feather .
We smudged each tree and said prayers .
Since that time one of the baby trees has perished and the other is very stunted and not growing much at all.
However what reminded me how this is all connected and not let self doubt come about was this little fellow
Now this mushroom appeared out of no where !
Our family has never seen this variety here ever . Not in the past . Not since this day .
These mushrooms do grow in the boreal forest but they are not known to grow here in our province or our area .
I feel very strongly we are to continue our prayers for this family , even though I do not wish to. I wish with all my heart they'd leave all parts of our memory . Yet it is not to be so .
So I await the arrival of mandrake and shall continue to pray on the flying agaric .
I will continue to be open to the fact should I be led to the use of flying ointments for myself .But thus far I've only been shown the why I'm not to and just work respectfully with these plants in a non ingestive way .
