Today I’d like to tell you a bit more about feeling the energetics of your herbs.
Unlike most companies, at Lost Empire Herbs we deal with powders and tinctures instead of pills or capsules. And for a good reason too.
When you take a herb in the powder or tincture form the effects can be felt instantly, whereas with capsules you have to wait until it enters the digestive system and begins to break down.
I have been experimenting with some genuine encapsulated Cordyceps lately.
As soon as I took it I felt a need to breathe deeper than before and this makes sense as Cordyceps is beneficial to lungs, among other things.
The second thing I noticed is a movement of energy to other parts of my body. I’ll be sharing more details on that in a future video.
(By the way, we are looking at making these new raw, genuine cordyceps available to VIP customers, as well as our cordyceps extract that is currently available. Stay tuned for details and be forewarned these are very expensive!)
By tasting herbs you can better feel the energetic effects of herbs, and not just take them for physiological reasons. Of course you will find far different effects with different herbs.
It works best if you focus on why you are taking these herbs, taste them fully, then pay attention to what you feel and what your is body telling you.
For example, this past weekend I was at an herbalism course and we were focusing on the topic of pain. As we talked about different herbs that can help with this, Wild Lettuce, Indian Warrior, Jamaican Dogwood and others we were also passing around tinctures and taking a few drops.
After a few of these my muscles were completely relaxed and I basically felt pleasantly “stoned”. I could have drifted off into a great nap right then and there.
Powerful stuff! And this comes about more through an energetic route rather than a hitting yourself over the head with a sledgehammer that many drugs do.
Contrast that to a little bit later. I wasn’t the only one feeling that way, so to wake ourselves back up we used a Cayenne tincture (yes, you need to be careful with that one!).
Literally just three drops and the circulation was back in action all throughout the body, stimulated and wide awake.
I share this because by working with herbs, you can begin to cultivate that self-awareness. As self-awareness has wide-ranging applications, this is a useful practice.
So pay attention when you take herbs, instead of just downing them and going about your day. This is the necessary start to cultivating this awareness.
