is the inability to see or to notice plants within our environment. During our evolution it was a protective tool to protect us from over stimulation..it is now, in the modern world a bit of problem. How can we cherish what we don't see?
When we consider life on this beautiful planet, animals and humans account for 0.3% of it. 99.7% of the biomass on earth is made by plants. As a hunter gatherer, 'seeing' all the green may of confused us from the task in hand. I am so pleased that the abundance of the plant kingdom is an ever evolving journey. Plants come into your vision, you get to 'know ' them, you get to 'see' them.
“Revive your understanding of plant consciousness. Study with your eyes and notice the magic of the plant & fungi kingdom. An invitation to journey back in time.. To remember the sights and smells of plants as they welcomed your child body. Returning to these experiences may bring connection and freedom”
Learn of your personal family traditions, that are so normal they were never heralded as magical knowing or understanding. Consider the plants that have travelled with your family. Begin a tradition for the generations that will follow you.
Study the natural world in awe & wonder...
Resolve to becoming less blind, if you don't know something and are curious ask the elders because they know things and notice things that are not written in books. Ask grannies and grandads is their is a family receipt book, a traditional recipe that you can excavate and breath life into. Commit to learning the latin names because within them is great understanding and honour.
Share you understanding with those that walk your path. Delight in the revelation, gather time and space around you to to commune and revere the plants around you. I remember many of the plants as they came into my life. I enjoy remembering the human or experience that brought them to me. I remember a time in my life when I didn't know that Lavender existed. I remember the first dark evening that I met Nettle. Remain open to learning and share your understanding and if we study the cosmos held within the spirals of a sunflower, we can touch an inner sanctum of the beauty held within us....
