Reishi is known all over the world for being a superfood. It has incredible physical actions - supporting the immune system and endocrine system; it has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anticancer properties; it can lower blood pressure and cholesterol; it's an adaptogen; and much more. There are countless scientific studies on the benefits to the physical body.
But what has people really drawn to reishi is it's impact on the mind and the 𝙨𝙥𝙞𝙧𝙞𝙩.
➤ Reishi promotes a deep sense of peacefulness, calms the mind, relaxes the nervous system, and 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙛𝙩 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮.
➤ In Traditional Chinese Medicine (where it's been documented for 2000 years), it supports 𝙨𝙝𝙚𝙣. Shen is energy that keeps us rejuvenated and inspired. It is this energy that provides insight and creativity.
➤ Reishi helps us focus - and we can use this however we'd like. We can use the heightened awareness for spiritual practice, meditation or creative projects.
When I dietted Reishi, I noticed a train of negative thoughts would start to come toward the door of my awareness, but they didn't come through. The negativity stayed outside, and only positivity and acceptance and delight in the present moment of being remained. I slept deeply and woke up refreshed and full of energy. I felt an aliveness, a fullness in my energy field that nourished and inspired everything in my day. I was motivated and felt strong.
From Taoist Master Herbalist Rehmannia Dean Thomas (Founder of Shaman Shack) about 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙘𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙧𝙚𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙞 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙝𝙪𝙢𝙖𝙣𝙨:
“We have long known that mushrooms benevolently affect consciousness. Reishi is not psychotropic and does not alter perception, yet it benefits mental clarity and helps instill a reverent attitude. Reishi enhances spiritual enlightenment, and seems to “weave us into the mycelial web of life.” The subterranean relationship of fungi with plants is called mycorrhiza. Humans attempted to sever ourselves from this relationship through disassociation with the ground (pavement, shoes, tires, etc.). 𝙋𝙧𝙤𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙤𝙛 𝙧𝙚𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙞 𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙪𝙨𝙘𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙣𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙤 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙚𝙡𝙨𝙚; 𝙥𝙡𝙪𝙜𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙪𝙨 𝙗𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙤 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙀𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙝. Nature is calling us to reunite for common survival, and that is why I believe reishi and other tonic herbs and superfoods are emerging in our consciousness that this time.”
