I was told once by a Tree (yes, really),
that the Spirit of the plant lives in the sap;
medicine is in the bark;
power is in the leaves;
connectivity is in the roots;
and love is in the fruits.
I was told to use the parts of a plant in
this way to facilitate what I want to achieve.
The teaching then continued to unfold
months later, where I was told the same
is true for a human.
The spirit is in the blood;
medicine is in the skin,
(including the skin of each organ,
anywhere information is exchanged
with its environment);
power is in our hair and nails; connectivity is in our root,
our pelvic bowl and feet;
love is in our words & our fruits, our creativity,
our children, our song, our expression.
