A Comfrey Week is going to leave you bruised — but healing. Soul bruises happen so often that we tend not to notice them. We say things like “I’m just a bit tired” or we raid the emergency stash of chocolate. But we should acknowledge that someone or something has hurt us. Then we can heal.
So this week, stop reaching for chocolate (oh, okay, have a little piece), and ask yourself why you need it. What’s hurt you?
Once you’ve assessed your bruise, then you can treat it. But Comfrey Weeks aren’t panaceas. Comfrey is a poison even if you can use it externally as a poultice or ointment. Just so, how we respond to the bruises on our souls can heal or destroy us.
Be careful, think through the consequences of your actions — and don’t be afraid to get professional help.
A Comfrey Week is a great time to start the healing process. Be gentle. Be careful. But remember, even the worst bruises do heal with time.
