Walking with Homeopathy – Mosses and Lichens

When I was out walking I noticed this wonderful tree dripping with mosses and lichens in a graveyard where some poor Spanish souls are buried far from their native land.

They were sailors in the 3rd Spanish Armada of 1597.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3rd_Spanish_Armada

The forty-ton caravel Nuestra Senora Buenviage, was driven ashore by the storm in Milford Haven, where she was captured and then plundered. She had gold and silver aboard, and the Welsh militia fought over it. There are farmhouses here that have anchors in their gardens and wooden beams made from the hulls of these wrecks.

In this historical graveyard the trees, gravestones and walls are covered with various mosses and lichens that can be used as homeopathic remedies so I felt they could go into our bouquet.

Lycopodium or club moss. Both mosses and lichens cling to their chosen location growing very slowly and cautiously. Mosses are limited in size by their poor ability to transport water because they have no vascular tissue. Lichens are bizarre organisms, no two are alike. They’re a complex life form that is a symbiotic partnership of two separate organisms, a fungus and an alga.

So a homeopathic patient might say they lack confidence and this also can make them anxious. Seemingly bright and intelligent but actually physically weak they have a lot of anticipatory fears, so hate starting anything new and dread events like public speaking. They hate to be alone, do not like company, but want someone nearby. Looking at this patient you notice they are pallid with dark rings around their eyes. Flatulence and bloating is a problem  after a meal and they feel full after eating very little. They love chocolates and sweets. They will have poor circulation and cold extremities. Urinary and digestive problems are common often associated with liver problems.

Just a brief summary of an extremely useful remedy.
