When you are trying to keep your head up and your courage strong, coltsfoot is a powerful ally. Facilitate kundalini fire and allow youself to take a deep breath — coltsfoot will help you get where your higher mind wants you to be, where your soul speaks to the sun and the stars.
Coltsfoot is one of the first flowers to emerge in spring, looking rather like a leafless dandelion on a tall, reinforced stalk. The flowers bloom first, the giant hoof-like leaves emerging weeks later after the flowers have gone to seed. It can be really difficult to take that first, second, third step, but coltsfoot never acknowledges fear. It helps you blast past self-doubt and merge with a better, sunnier reality, as it encourages your kundalini to rise and greet the golden light of the great central sun.
Physically, coltsfoot essence benefits the solar plexus, diaphragm, and heart chakras, as well as the central nervous system and spine. It is a hardy plant that flourishes even along salty roadsides, teaching us to bloom where we are planted and overcome even the most difficult situations.
