Those involved with plant sorcery will often talk about relationships. The plants are not mindless tools for our use. They can and do benefit our work in the world, but they do not exist solely to serve us. That is helpful to know when engaging in any type of spirit work, be it work with plants, ancestors, land devas, spirits of weather patterns, or any other number of unseen denizens. I’m glad that this has become a sort of given within the esoteric communities in recent years and it seems like this wisdom is transferring itself from the realm of deep learning to basic “street smarts.”
