Many of us may recall being given Charms & such containing a single Mustard Seed. This was a symbol to remind Followers that God’s Kingdom resides within them. Unseeable. Much like the Mustard Greens that emerge from their Seed. And how massive they can grow!
Mustard has many uses both Medicinally as well as Metaphysically. Lets begin with Metaphysically…
Mustard Seeds are often in two ‘varieties’ : Black & Yellow/White
Black Seeds are often used in Curses or Hexes, however, they are also used in Workings of Protection.
Yellow / White seeds are often used in Blessings as well as reminding us of our Full Potential. Courage & Success is what this Divine Seed reminds us along with the fact that all is Possible. Faith in the Divine, yes. However, this also means Faith in Ourselves.
