Creation generously provided herbal medicines with unique Long Housesignatures to help us know what systems of the body they treat. We must remember though, that there are exceptions to every rule of nature and gathering natural medicine is a very specialized skill and if done without a great deal of knowledge, can be more dangerous then helpful. The color of an herbs flower is an essential and fascinating characteristic of the signature. Red flowers for example, indicate the herbs ability to purify blood disorders, act as an antibiotic and treat skin disorders caused by diseases of the blood. Herbs with purple or blue flowers have a sedative effect on our bodies. They treat stress, muscle spasms, act as a tonic and help us to stay calm when recovering from illness.

Like the web of the dream catcher, we are connected to all things within the circle of life. Long HouseLight moves like a rainbow, as radiation from the sun, the stars, the moon and the lightening into the back of our eye to be interpreted. We hear the sound of clear water moving over the rocks of the river. We smell the scent of the pines and taste the morning mist. We feel the icy chill of a winter morning or the heat of the summer sun. We react to every emotional experience received through the five senses, with hundreds of biochemical responses transmitted from the mid-brain and down the spinal column into every organ of the body, mind and spirit. We react to all things seen, heard, smelled, tasted and touched.
