The efficacy of 'ferns'
Type of Spiritual Experience
Proof, if proof were needed, of how coded were the recipes of witches
A description of the experience
Hans Peter Duerr - Dreamtime
'Fern' is frequently mentioned in the proceedings of witch trials…. It is often the herb of madness of legends, and on occasion we hear that it will facilitate the understanding of the speech of animals….. In many cases, it is no longer possible to discover which plant is hidden under the term ‘fern’ which often simply meant ‘high grass’…. When magic texts talk of ‘fern seed’ they probably do not mean the spores, but rather the 'magic seed' which allegedly can be seen only on midsummer’s night.
