Sometimes certain plants become more prevalent in our lives, they get our attention – suddenly you start to see them everywhere, their colors and energy become more vivid. This is something I’ve made note of in recent years, and have honored as a message of healing from the plant, whether it be for the collective, a loved one, or for myself.
This year Hawthorn has been one of those plants for me – recently I realized there were several Hawthorns growing around our home, something I had never noticed in the four years we’ve lived here!
Hawthorn is best known as heart medicine, both remedially and energetically. It bears long thorns, indicating inner fortitude and protection. Historically it has been associated with both the Faery Folk and Witches.
