Herbal Ally Challenge # 10 ~ Dandelion Meditation & My Thoughts


March 21 st


Today as I sat with my herbal ally Dandelion .......


The sun was shining brightly and as I closed my eyes to meditate I had an image burn in of the Dandelion I was focusing on . My thoughts right off were of the beautiful bright yellow blossom , reminding me of the sun and warmth. The other image in my mind was the razor sharpness of the leaves , but later as I opened my eyes I realized the top of the leaves have a roundness that softens the look of the leaves. I think Dandelion was telling me to enjoy the warmth of the sun , soak up that vitamin D and warmth after a long cold winter and that the razor sharpness of the leaves represents how abruptly the Dandelion can work with your system to eliminate problems. As I was writing in my journal , a small bee landed on the blossom gathering nectar. What a delightful feeling it was to sit still and watch that small bee at work.


I have to admit I only meditated 3 days , life became hectic , sick grands and lots of rain distracted me and I haven't got back to the challenge. But , I plan to continue this challenge through the year.

I also am behind with my meditations. I have been a bit invaded by Dandelion this week. My poor Tansy has a bit of competition. :-)

Wait... are you doing a challange? Sorry I've only just come across your blog.
A few years back I did a shamanic exercise to strengthen my ties to plants.
I was to chose a plant that I knew nothing about and meditate on it. When I finished I compared my findings with what the healing books say the plant is good for.

OMG it was spot on! And it wasn't ME. It was my plant ally communicating the information to me. AMAZING!
