Awe-inspiring Embodiment of Resilient Fertility

While walking in the park in the early spring, I found fiddleheads everywhere, asking to be harvested for the dinner table. But I resisted and took pictures of the emerging fern fronds that resembled the waxy covering of a newborn. I texted them to my friend Pamela. She responded with pictures of the ferning pattern of healthy cervical mucous under a microscope.
It's a fractal - a pattern that repeats at different scales, in different contexts. It was just the kind of thing that warms a homeopath's heart! We work with similars.
I did a little digging, and found that the same ferning pattern can be seen in amniotic fluid. The ferning pattern indicates peak estrogen just before ovulation when a woman's cervical mucous changes its consistency and chemistry to welcome sperm and keep it alive till she ovulates. The ferning pattern is also present in the amniotic fluid that cocoons the baby in mom's belly. 
What we see under the microscope is actually dried crystals of sodium chloride and other minerals under the influence of estrogen in mucous. 
The question is, why ferns?
Has anyone asked this question? Let me know if you have a clue!
We know that ferns are truly ancient, hundreds of millions of years old. They were the companions and foods of dinosaurs. They colonized the earth before any animal walked on it. They produced oxygen, which made the earth hospitable for other animals. They survived the most austere conditions — global dimming, cooling and acid rain —  that wiped out dinosaurs and 75% of other animals and plants on Earth. Call them living fossils.

They're the first plants to come back after an ecosystem collapses. Just what makes them so resilient is still a mystery!

They have two reproductive phases, alternating between the sexual and nonsexual phases to introduce, in turn, diversity into the lineage and to allow fast, widespread and identical replication of the species. Here's the animation of the fern's reproductive cycle.

Here's the awesome thing 

Nature has tucked the imprint of this ancient icon of fertility and resilience into our most intimate body fluids. We embody within ourselves its resilient fertility. It's a remembrance of the fertility and resilience of some of the earliest life forms on earth. It shows up every midcycle. We do not remember it consciously, but our bodies do! 

As mass vaccination to fight the new disease takes hold, the deepest memories of our humanity - of life on earth - held within our cells is shaken up. 

Many practitioners see signs of disturbed menstrual cycles after these shots — the return of menses after menopause, hemorrhaging, intense emotional and physical pain at a distance from the female reproductive system. And that's not counting the reproductive losses. Not in everyone, to be sure. But the suffering in those who are affected is real. 

As much as I worry about what this trauma may mean, I also find hope in the fern's imprint that's written into our fertility cycles and into the very beginnings of human life. Homeopathy can help, with remedies we've known for centuries and newer ones that address the profound new challenges.
