A second contact with the Deva of Verbascum olympicum for clarification on "Herbalism: General".
1. What are the primary tools for cultivation and upgrading of a plant species?
2. What are the primary characteristics of a plant species when assessing it's usefulness to the human kingdom?
1. To unlock the full benefits of this plant we must pay heed to the Law of Reciprocity.
2. Vital that non commercial interests come to the rescue of certain plant species.
3. We must analyse the conditions in which the plant naturally grows for soil composition, rainfall, light and shade during the growing season.
4. We must first replicate natural growing conditions before scientific analysis can take place.
5. Planting in ideal conditions excludes elemental forces which otherwise would contribute to etheric growth patterns which support the physical structure.
6. Protection from the elements eliminates the need for adaption and consequently weakens the strain.
7. To understand a plant's subtle energies and it's physical plane cultivation one must cooperate with those who's natural home is on the subtle planes.
8. Psychic faculty should not be treated as a curiosity but as a means by which whose who live on subtle planes can be contacted, for constructive purposes.
9. Verbascum olympicum will not cure diseases in its current form until it's subtle bodies have been adjusted. This is a long process.
10. In the past, man failed to keep his bargain with nature to make reparation to a plant species for any benefit received. This has resulted in the loss to our current age of many of the benefits our forefathers took for granted.
11. It'll take a long time before the benefits lost can be restored, but there is a temporary solution which is to be the subject of another message once the principles by which nature shares it's bounty is thoroughly understood and assimilated by those who's task it is to aid in this restoration.
"The plant you are looking at is now under cultivation for it's medicinal properties but these are only a few of the benefits it holds in store for the human race should they pay heed, in their desire to obtain it's healing properties, to the Law of Reciprocity already outlined to you in your previous communication.
"The first act of the human kingdom in relation to any plant species is to be that of preservation. Without preservation there is a danger that commercial interests will overwhelm the very resource it is trying to benefit from to the point where the expected harvest no longer suffices for the purpose intended. It is vital therefore that non-commercial interests come to the rescue of all species that yield their blessings to the human kingdom and accept the challenges of personal and commercial cultivation.
"It is not necessary to grow vast swathes of such plants in the ways applicable to commercial operations but to familiarise ones self with the nature and requirements of any given species to the point where the following questions can be answered accurately:
"Where for instance does a given variety of a plant species make it's appearance under natural conditions beyond the reach and interference by man. What then are the conditions of the soil in which it naturally grows; the natural rainfall in that area and the prevailing conditions of light and shade as the sun passes by in it's daily trajectory during the growing season applicable to the genus under consideration?
"You cannot know, apart from the chemical composition of the soil, what other factors of a subtle nature operate in any area of natural growth and must assume optimum conditions and seek their replication before further scientific analysis can take place. It is not good enough to plant a seed in soil which experiments have shown give the best results in a laboratory as such conditions are protective, and exclusive of elemental forces which otherwise would contribute to the etheric level growth patterns which support the physical structure and help it adapt to environmental circumstances not encountered in intensive cultivation methods.
"With this overview in mind I can now address your fundamental questions on the cultivation of this species. It is not necessary to mollycoddle it as I think the saying goes. Protection from the elements has the result of eliminating the need for adaption to the point where the strain is weakened to the point where it cannot survive in harsh conditions in which it formally flourished. This will result in loss of species should the area of commercial cultivation with its approximate nutritional value become untenable at some point in the future.
"Now to the subject of subtle energies. One cannot, without the vision of the etheric sub planes, determine these by experiment on the lowest sub planes of solid, liquid and gas. Instead one is forced to rely on the good auspices of those who's natural environment is precisely those etheric sub planes which at the current state of human development are hidden from the vast majority of the human species and which will not reveal their secrets to direct scrutiny for many millennia to come.
"It is incumbent therefore that any cultivation on the physical plane be conducted in cooperation with those of us who's task it is, not just to preserve and advance the welfare of a given species, but to educate those who, by their own decisions and intentions, undertake such work as part of their acceptance of their own intended role within the planetary sphere.
"Contact with beings such as myself is becoming more prevalent as members of the human species adapt their thinking on the so called psychic impressions they receive, and grow to see them not as interesting curiosities they can demonstrate ad nauseum to their friends and colleagues but as embryonic tools in need of further development prior to their usability in service of Divine Purpose.
Now to the primary characteristics of Verbascum olympicum, a genus within the species Mullein. It will not cure diseases in its current form nor will it provide sanctuary for those insect varieties which are its natural beneficiaries until it has undergone certain physiological changes resulting from the necessary adjustment of those subtle bodies which support it. Those subtle bodies themselves rely on the sacrifices of other plant species and those again on yet others. You can now see the difficulty with which the human species is faced and the work it has to do if it is to realise its dream of perfect human health.
"No task is easy, my brothers of the physical realm, as your mythology with its challenges and disciplines prior to the glory of success should have told you millennia ago. What nature requires of you is effort on it's (natures) behalf before you can reap the harvest of your own desires. This was not always the case and there was a point in the dim and distant past when all one had to do was pick a plant for personal use on the promise that, within the current lifetime, reparation to that species would be made in the way I have just outlined to you. But as with most human promises, few were kept until, millennia of years later, the benefits which were easily at hand to bygone generations have now to be reestablished by dint of backbreaking effort and incident failure before they can be enjoyed by generations, millennia hence.
"But all is not lost: the world you know would soon grind to a halt if this were the only way to ensure the health of the human kingdom. Nature, or deity if you prefer, had seen this scenario in the making and has laid contingency plans by which a temporary restoration of the healing benefits of plant species can be resurrected, as it were, to prime the pump of human involvement in the rectification of its own destiny. But that I'm afraid is a subject for another lesson on this subject as it is important for the principles by which nature shares its bounty, and the demands it makes on those who benefit, to be thoroughly understood and assimilated by those who's destiny it is to bring about this change, in incarnations to come.
"I am the Deva Lord of the plant before you and wish you well in your further investigations."
