The insights it brings can create a potential of mental expansion. In doing so it may allow wisdom to flow more freely into ones consciousness. This can create an environment of trust in the process of life, being faithful to ones self, and ones purpose.

This could be why clary sage was known as ‘clear eyes’ during the Middle Ages. It is also known to enhance one’s ability to dream.
