I’m a novice when it comes to receiving. Giving has become my second expertise, But giving alone without getting Becomes soon a fatal disease.
If the intake valve is not opened There’s no way to maintain a supply There comes a point in a cycle of life Where the out-going stream runs dry.
Straining out love from a vacuum Is like drinking from the heart of a stone. Try as we may, at the end of the day, We’re exhausted, frustrated, alone.
‘Better to give than to receive’, we are taught Yet another truth I’ve learnt just by living: Only the soul with the grace to receive, Excels in the fine art of giving.
Re. Dr. James A. Forbes Jr.
“There is a secret about human love that is commonly overlooked: Receiving it is much more scary and threatening than giving it.
notes on Echinacea from Ana
Echinacea is known for strengthening and fortifying the immune system.
Commonly, she’s used to shorten the duration of the common cold or flu.
She’s also often recommended to help boost immune function while fighting infections, including urinary tract and upper respiratory viral infections.
Echinacea is an immunostimulant and should be avoided by most people with Auto-immune disregulation
Herbal use of echinacea is not meant to be taken on a daily, long-term basis- more so for short-term, acute situations
The plant spirit of echinacea extends those qualities to include the whole landscape of our energetic and emotional bodies, influencing the overall integrity of our immune system
Beyond taking echinacea in capsules or tinctures, her flower essence is a friendly, yet strong ally for maintaining a strong sense of self amidst chaos, change and upheaval- like a doctor for your Soul
When challenged by stress, illness resurfacing of old trauma, physical and/or emotional disintegration of self, or anything that threatens all systems of the body- including physical, emotional and energetic- echinacea allows one to do what’s needed to cultivate inner resource, remaining in contact with the strength of both the human self and inner, true nature
