The Cactus

This week we’re celebrating a hearty desert spirit, the cactus! We think cacti are wonderful – think of big Saguaro cacti with their branches upturned up as if they’re simply celebrating. This week, we’ll take a look at a couple varieties of cacti, talk about how they’ve traditionally been used and consider what they can offer each of us. Cacti are resilient spirits. We admire how they survive in the harshest condition while maintaining their own specific beauty. It’s also important to pay our respects to the cultures who have respected and used the power of the cactus for healing and for spiritual knowledge. Their knowledge is old and deep, and we honor it. The cactus itself knows about persevering with grace. And they have passed this knowledge on to many people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
