|WATERFALL CALAMUS - Acorus graminei
Initiatic use: superior Shen tonic, calming, anti-anxiety, centering, emotionally balancing
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, we all have three treasures: Qi, our vitality and life force, Jing, our creative and sexual energy, and Shen, our spirit of peace and power, the true source of the other two treasures.
Shen is peacefulness, the inner stillness that is deep strength, residing in the heart. When Shen is disturbed, our energy burns in false fire, hot and active on the surface of our busy lives, but backed by depletion, anxiety and lack of real vitality.
Waterfall Calamus is the supreme Shen tonic, building a pool of calm reserve we can dip into to stay cool and collected when life is chaotic. Not a sedative, this herb builds your ability to be an eye of calm in the storm of the world, and thereby protect and increase your other treasures and total vitality.
