I am a newcomer to this forum.
As a Flower Essence practioner of some 25 years, perhaps you could explore this arena of Vibrational Medicine to gain insights into the healing qualities (and consciousness) of the Plant Kingdom. Synchronistically, I have just hired out Richard Attenborough's BBC series "The Private Life of Plants", which may also be a good resource for you. The episodes are titled:
The Social Struggle
Rather the parallel with human concerns.
An interesting article can be found on the website of the Flower Essence Society, about the "Eight Meta-levels of the Human Soul" http://www.flowersociety.org/mateos2.html
The mythology of Blodeuwedd is also particularly insightful - The Nine Blossoms of Blodeuwedd.
