- Plant Spirit Medicine -
Plant Spirit Medicine focuses on the underlying constitutional balance of each individual. When this balance improves, the symptoms of physical conditions also improve. PSM brings healing to the underlying cause, the root, of the patient’s physical, emotional or spiritual concerns. This is where sustained healing begins. Medicine for the body cannot heal a broken or suppressed spirit, but medicine for the spirit brings improvements throughout. Physical pain is a message from the body that something is wrong. Similarly, an excess or lack of any emotions, indicate that something is out of balance in the seasons of the spirit.
PSM is rooted in the ancient Chinese Five Elemental theory. Everything within and without is an expression of the dance of these five elements. Every day is a microcosm of a year; morning like Spring, night like Winter. Sometimes this inner cycle does not flow freely, so we may find it hard to get going in the morning or in life. Or we may have trouble sleeping peacefully at night. Joy, fulfilment and a sense of connectedness may elude us. We may feel unsupported and become resigned, over dependant or obsessive. Grief may overwhelm us until we are unable to move on. Fear or despair may dominate our life. Anger and resentment may consume us and damage our relationships.
Plants live harmoniously throughout this cycle of seasonal energy, both annually and daily. That is why they can help us repair at the elemental level.
Mother Nature is constantly giving, if only we open our hearts and our senses to her. I work with local wild plants living effortlessly in balance and harmony. My job as a PSM healer is to make myself available, a conduit, a bridge between the Plant Spirits and the client.
I maintain continuous, ever deepening relationship with the Divine Natural World since the summer of 2001 and before that, as a child. My personal relationship with the Plants, the Land, the Elements and the Elementals, has brought me to a deep acceptance of their divine nature, the vastness of their wisdom, their constant moving to restore and maintain balance in their world. We share their world with them, we are a part of it.
They do not see us as being separate from the world we live in – the way we have come to.
This world gives us every single little thing we have – whether we have received with awareness, fair exchange and gratitude or not. Nature’s willingness and ability to heal us and bring us back into balance within ourselves is, in my continued witnessing and personal experience, no less than a divine, miraculous occurrence.
Our ancestors lived their lives in harmony and balance with Nature. They had no illusion of separation from Nature. This deeply effective medicine restores us to this state of grace, which is our birthright.
