Asplenium bulbiferum

Hen and Chickens Fern Deva’s Blessing

I offer you the mantle of passion. Through me you possess everything and seek nothing. Discovering courage, beauty and a brave heart – allies on your journey.

The new year brings us opportunities to make changes in our lives. If we make resolutions to overcome what we see as inner weaknesses but by February our resolve is starting to fade then this is the time to work with No 70 Hen and Chickens Fern. This essence aligns with the Strength key in the Tarot, in which we see Mother Nature standing in full control over the previously untamed beast within.

This is the essence for courage, bravery, staying strong and aligned to our higher selves. We restore the passion for life and are able to emanate inner strength, insight and love. No 70 Hen and Chickens Fern allows us to overcome our animal instincts and to transmute the power of negative intense emotions for our highest good.

Indications for No 70 Hen and Chickens Fern include:

  • Having no passion for life
  • Suffering from a sense of weakness, failure or disgrace, letting ourselves down
  • Being overtaken by personal desires, giving in to our lower nature
  • Being quick to anger, having intense emotions, throwing tantrums if our needs are not met immediately
  • Wanting to break a habit, stick to a diet or quit smoking
  • When we need the courage of our convictions
