A walk or cross-country ski run during the winter months can even revel medicinal herbs so do not just think of winter as a dormant and dry season. Dig through the snow and you will see tiny pine trees just as green and alive as ever. This Genus consists of about 450 species of evergreen trailing perennials. The spores of this herb date back as early as the 17th century. Club moss spores are now being used in sound experiments because they vibrate patterns of sound waves. They are also flammable making them useful in fire works and stage effects. Winter is not a time of dormancy for us but pulsating life energy if we only know where to look.

My husband’s and my favorite pastime when we first met in 1988, was to drive and walk through the state land. I never knew there was so much land that was out there for all of us to use before I came to the area of Cortland and Chenango Counties. There are literally thousands of acres there for you to walk, camp, pick wild berries and meet God again. But best of all, the land is also filled with healing medicinal plants.

One day, we came up to a huge patch of clubmoss. Not finding many books on this herb but going to classes and learning about vibrations and talking to plants, helped me to understand this plant. At the time, Staph infections was on the rise and knowing God would direct me to a plant that would help and in the process make a combination that would be healing if I would only listen, would be there for me. So with God’s guidance we created the combination, you bottom out. Not sure how the combination would react on the problem, my husband gladly volunteered to take the herb and see the results. To this day, it is his favorite combination of herbs with clubmoss being the powerhouse of the combination. John works city construction and is many times in the sewage of the city repairing and putting in new pipes.

In homeopathy, clubmoss is used for the male energy so very interesting that John felt that right away and was very excited to try the herb.

Working with vibration is called muscle testing or kinesiology. This is like the electricity in your home. If a mouse chewed through a wire the electricity would not continue. There is no more energy moving. The same is in your body. If you have an infection and the energy is blocked, kinesiology helps to find what will unblock the energy so the body can start healing itself. Checking the energy of herbs on the body helps us to understand how they work and what they can do.

God has put these herbs on the earth with the intention of us using them, no different then a juicy wild blackberry waiting for you to sample.
