In indigenous cultures, it is belived that plants grow in a particular place for a reason and that they bring 'medicines' in the physical form for all as well as healings that are less tangible. Its no accident when plants and trees suddenly start growing and thriving somewhere.

The himalayan balsam plant is considered by many to be ‘an invasive weed’. Journeying with this plant was very interesting in that it holds a very strong healing for the planet. It’s far from an invasive weed. It’s meant to be here despite some people complaining that it's taking over. It needs to take over a bit to redress an imbalance. The main message of this plant is it's support of the feminine in men and women and the need for balance in all aspects in this area in our world. Its about giving the feminine a strong voice.
