I have gone as far as to list the energetic effects by chakra! No protection to be found. So I am going to do some shamanic plant work and see what the plant has to say. I don't want to be disrespectful to the glorious Mr. C by saying out right that he's wrong, but I think either there is something I am not understanding or there has been an error somewhere.
And the Witchery will continue! I'll try to be sure to take more notes on what I find when I start working with Ms. Puzzle Thang!
