Page 70: “Our meta-physical digestion, or our ability to “take in” and “digest” experiences and information, parallels our physical digestion … If we cannot properly process an experience—i.e., absorb, digest, and assimilate that which is advantageous and eliminate that which is not—we either do not benefit from the potentially nourishing aspects of the experience (lessons or newfound skills, for example) or, the energy of the experience can become stuck in our system, similar to the way undigested food does not properly nourish us and can burden our body until eliminated. Another potential hazard is readily accepting something as truth when it might not actually be correct or, not reflective of our truth—this can be akin to ingesting junk food or food that might be suitable for others, but is not ideal for our constitution … In both examples, melancholy can potentially result, particularly if we repeatedly struggle with proper discernment and digestion.

Page 132 “… most daisies … [have] center disks [that] contain tubular florets in sacred, spiraling patterns that activate codes in our system that support accelerated evolution and ascension as well as enhance our pineal gifts.”
Pages 158: “Peonies can help cultivate self-appreciation, self–compassion, self-forgiveness, self-trust, and self-love, which represent keys to the doorway of higher actualization … If we feel we have lost ourselves entirely to fear or to anxiety or have abdicated some of our power to an addiction, peonies can help us reestablish trust in ourselves….”
Page 177-178 “Irises … are truly special plants that exude a regal wisdom … can also confer additional benefits, including prompting the release of obstructions that can be toxic, such as feelings that may either be part of our awareness, or may be brewing below the radar as an undertow to our existence, such as frustration, resentment….”
