Juniper, Ephedra, and the Process of Initiation

These ancient desert plants call us away from our normal daily lives and invite us to reconnect with our ancestral roots. Their physical form and structure embody the energetic processes of transformation. When we invite them into our lives, they can help guide us on the path of awakening—assisting us in making transitions, helping us to transform obstacles that get in the way of finding and fulfilling our missions in life, and tying us into the spiritual matrix that sustains us on all levels.
