There are burdens we carry with us through life. A regret, a bad memory from the past. A behaviour we repeat over and over again. Wouldn’t it be such a relief to be able to let go of these things that do not serve us? Just let them gently wash away, release their grip and diminish their power?
When we open ourselves to the healing power of nature, plants step forward as allies, offering their medicine and even the humblest of weeds becomes a powerful healer.
Wouldn’t it be such a relief to be able to let go of these things that do not serve us?
Cleavers, biddy bid, goose grass… is one of those ‘weeds’. At a physical level cleavers works with the lymphatic system to help rid the body of toxins. Imagine those sticky seeds and leaves moving through the body letting all the rubbish cleave to it.
But we are not just physical form. We are emotions, memory, soul and energy. Healers, shamans, philosophers and physicians through time have worked with the vital force that flows through all things: the archeus, prana, jing, chi…. the nonphysical aspects of ourselves.
Energy moves between us. So picture cleavers energy moving through you, gently encouraging the things that do not serve you well to cleave to its energy, to be carried away from you, releasing its grip.
Cleavers energy helping you put down your burdens.
To use cleavers plant essence, place a few drops in water or under the tongue. The anointing of a chakra or pulse point, the immersion with a point on the medicine wheel. A connection to the planets within, and above.
Cleavers is one of my favorite plant essences. It is made from cleavers growing organically on our property. Infused with quartz energy and made to the lunar calendar it is a subtle yet powerful plant ally. A friend who lifts the heavy load from your shoulders.
