Sudden change leads to destruction and upheaval. Mushrooms are the instigators of transformations in the forest. They spark foundational healing. Mushrooms are decomposers; they convert material that is no longer useful into something living things can eat. They break down and absorb environmental contaminants, recycle decaying materials, and bring nutrients to the soil.
Use tragedy to nourish the bedrock of your soul.
Let the current crisis consume the false narratives you have created, and rewrite your story. Now is your chance to play at the game of life anew. As mushrooms build the immune system, allow yourself to build strength through resilience. Mushrooms reproduce by shooting their spores through the air in bursts. One the first shock of profound change has passed, let new energy released.
