Wormwood helps us transition from the dream state to waking and allows for better dream recall. Wormwood is also useful for processing unresolved issues and helps with letting go of the past. It is useful in conditions of lingering negative or unwanted thoughts, feelings or habits where a person has done some work on their issues but some parts of it remain in the psyche. Many things have an emotional core somewhere in the psyche that needs to be released before there is freedom in the area. Wormwood helps the thinking process become clearer by releasing deeper imprints in the subconscious which distort things as they surface. Thoughts revealing how things really are, or what must be done are more easily accessed.
