To use them as medicine, warns you of approaching illness or sorrow.
Roots symbolize the unconscious mind.
Large roots, or roots that delve deep into the soil, symbolize the need to carefully examine your inner thoughts in order to better understand yourself.
Roots that are exposed or above ground symbolize the need to expose your inner talents to the world.
