This week I had the honour of journeying with the Spirit of Clary Sage for one of my plant Spirit reading clients. Each Plant Spirit has a unique type of medicine that they offer out to the world. When I retrieve a Plant Spirit Ally for someone the Plant that presents itself is always a plant that has similar medicine to the person that are coming to help. (whether or not that person is aware of this medicine or not.) Once I retrieve the universal medicine of the plant I then channel the particular gifts the Plant spirit had for the individual. Its a beauty-full and deep process. Here I have included my journey with the Spirit of Clary Sage and the universal medicine she brings to us all. If she speaks to you. Call her into your life and start to get to know each other.
I drifted on small wooden boat on a vast body of water, it could be the ocean or it could be a lake stretching as far as the eye can see. I am alone and not alone at the same time. All around me I feel a strong presence of something greater than anything I can put into words. Next to me on my seat lay 3 stems of clary sage. Her perfect purple flower vibrant against the green of her stem and the blue body of water that holds my driftwood grey boat. Her scent reaches me and I bring her closer to my nose, inhaling her unique sweet fragrance. Immediately I am transported to somewhere else, another time and another place. Before my eyes have time to adjust and take in my surroundings, she takes me of again, and again and again. Until I am nearly dizzy with the travel. Finally I end up back in my boat drifting gently on the water. This time the boat has another seat, in front on me there sits the spirit of Clary sage. I do not see her as any particular form just as pulsing light. When I finally give up trying to see her as something I understand, I hear in my mind her voice “The paths can be far and they can be wide but they always come from and return to the same place.”
The medicine of the Spirit of Clary Sage.
Clary sage is a plant that is here to help us to do a particular kind of healing. She is able to assist us with the fears we have of being engulfed by the unexpressed tears of the feminine, simply by being a human that is alive on this planet at this time our mental, spiritual and physical bodies are aware of the great injustices that have been shown towards the feminine over the thousands of years of patriarchal dominance. The fear of truly feeling into these injustices stops many of us stepping onto the true path of healing and embracing the gifts of the feminine.
Clary sage is a powerful plant ally for those of us who are doing work where we are required to be leaders during times of crisis. Clary sage has the ability to give aid and strength when we are discouraged by perceived failures.
Clary sage is also a great healer for those of us who are hard on ourselves and battle with the crippling nature of self-judgement and blame.
Clary sage teaches us to accept that our core feelings and emotions are valid. This in particular is why she is often prescribed as an aid for women with menstrual cycle and PMS dis-ease.
The spirit of Clary sage helps us to remember our spiritual selves. She shows us how to sink into a state of spiritual harmony and a feelings of wholeness about our lives.
