Doctrine Of Signatures

Can you guess the plant? Lungwort...

The Doctrine Of Signatures is a belief that the physical form of a plant and it's habitat gives a clue as to its healing purposes. Quite ancient in origin (47ad) it was thought that God gave a visual clue to humans as to what plants are most beneficial to specific ailments and body parts.

There is much more to it than that so if it interests you check out the information available online.

The idea intrigues me, I like the belief that our world provides answers to our questions. We are asked to take in all the information, color, shape, shade, light and translate it, listening carefully to what it means in our own selves.
