The Spirit of Mugwort Speaks
The body will hold onto memories long gone
It will let go with Mugwort's song
To do this, Mugwort must be burnt above
In Mugwort is held the frequency of love
As it burns, the body will release
Energy will glow and there will be a return of peace
Mugwort brings clarity when the smoke is inhaled
A whiff most small, is all it takes.
Recently, the Seer determined it was time to revisit plant magic and upgrade the wheels of The Gates of Mugwort protocol, originally released by her in 2008.
The reason is that plant magic is a powerful gateway to developing shamanic abilities and cultivating a relationship with Mother Earth. And therefore we'll add an Ancient Shamanism forum to our I Am Abundance network.
While this is a network mostly focused on prepping, and not so much the metaphysical, these two realms meet in ancient shamanic practices such plant magic. Meeting the challenges ahead will require not just the ability to 'keep ourselves afloat' in the face of (potential) societal collapse, but also proactively pivoting to working with the Earth as our ally.† And the Seer confirms this:
The Earth is our ally and friend. Once a loving and respectful relationship is established, she will protect nourish and sustain us. The plants will speak to us, the wind will guide us and the soil will support us. There is no better way to prepare for times of deprivation, than to establish a supportive interaction with the power of nature.The Seer
The protocol consists of Seven Gates and the Emblem of the Spirit of Mugwort. You'll find that instructions are scant, because there is a strong non-cognitive component here. You are meeting and interacting with a being — the Spirit of Mugwort — and this relationship emphasizes feeling.
You basically burn the dry herb‡, as much as you like, inside or outside your living space, and meditate on one or more Gates, while opening up to whatever insights or impressions arise. (We'll share experiences and tips on Ancient Shamanism forum.)
All this is not to say that no additional information on this protocol will be received. But this will only be called forth once a certain critical mass is achieved in our collective practice of the Gates.
