Being directed by inner guidance and one’s spiritual connectedness
The first Red Rata plant I acquired I brought with me when I had a stall for Floweressences for a women’s day in Whangarei. The plant was flowering and it attracted a lot of attention from admiring women that day.
Red Rata is the plant that is connected to the Hierophant in the Tarot cards, and it is one of the Soul lessons in the First Light Plant family. You can learn about your Soul’s lesson for this lifetime by calculating your numerology for your birth year and when I was at the fair I offered to do this for the women who came the stall and admired Red Rata that day. Every single one of them had Red Rata as their over lighting Soul’s lesson: listening to that inner voice that connects you to your spirit. Even my friend who I was running the stall at the end of the day said, I have been looking at that plant all day, what is it? And again, her life path number added up to number 5, Red Rata..!
Red Rata furthermore is the plant helps us become a channel to the message of above and beyond, keeps us in touch with our life path and what we are here to do, and brings in vision that what we are wanting to create. And it helps us hear the voice of our guardian angel(s).
When you hold a branch of flowering Red Rata in your hand you can see little pinpricks of light at the end of the long red stamen. They like to climb up a tree fern (like wheki or mamaku), but will climb up a stone wall if that is what is closest.
