Assertiveness ~ Calm ~ Resilience
Gaelic Name: Slan-Lus which translates to Plant of Healing.
Plantains are extraordinarily resilient.
There is a chance you are being called upon to
display a similar characteristic.
You have to admire Plantain's tenacity.
It hugs low to the ground and will not budge.
Maybe that's what you need to do.
You just need to be aware of the difference between being a "doormat" and a Plantain.
Stand your ground.
However many times Plantain is trodden on,
within its leaves lie soothing ingredients.
Regardless of how tough life is,
in the end the real healing comes from within.
