Gotu Kola is an herb long used to support brain health--both emotional and cognitively speaking. This herb has been used in India, China, and Indonesia for thousands of years and in Europe since the 1880s. It has a well-earned reputation as a supporter of mental clarity, for easing depression and anxiety, increasing memory, having antiaging properties and generally reducing stress. There have been some scientific trials (on anxiety, improving memory and insomnia) that are starting to back up all the historical case studies. While it is not recommended for folx under 18, there is at least one story of someone living to the ripe old age of 200 with the help of this herb.
I personally see a very strong interrelationship between mental stress, memory and ability to effectively intuit/receive guidance are inextricably linked. It is darn near impossible to get good intuitive intel when you are highly stressed. Having a good memory (or at least a good record keeping system) is also very important when practicing intuitive data collection. Are you seeing the same signs and patterns coming up again, or has there been a shift?
When I smoke the Clear Mind blend with others, I find we all sit up straight and feel that clarity that often comes after stretching out in yoga or practicing meditation. We are ready to go--or be still! I have also used it when I need to work on my bookkeeping with surprisingly relieving results. What is your experience with this blend? If you haven't tried it yet, it is one of our lightest blends and the spearmint is felt more than tasted.
