The Doctrine of Signatures
The Carnivorous Bromeliad is the only Bromeliad species to actively lure and trap insects to sustain itself. Like many other carnivorous plants, this Bromeliad uses a clever system that is designed to trick insects into believing that there is something beneficial ( nectar ) when in fact it is leading them to their death. The plant resembles the Pitcher Plants and has long, upright hollow leaves that form the traps. Suffice to say this plant uses trickery, manipulation and enticing bribes to lure its prey to doing what it wants. All of these signatures are what this remedy works with – the tendency to fool oneself into a destructive trap.
The Carnivorous Bromeliad detects ‘gross lies’ in your environment. Eventually, however, these lead back to you… and how you make yourself vulnerable to exploitation. Personal responsibility for your role is key.
