Plant medicines, frog medicines, psychedelics are not a cure all. They can support us miraculously with long holding stuck energies, emotions, physical ailments, thought patterns, and traumas and create profound connection to our spiritual selves. But working with them over and over can clog our energetic systems - they can hit, and actually reinforce something, or strengthen some unwanted part or experience. I see this is when people return over and over - just hoping to get somewhere "better." Sometimes, they can break through again. However, there's always more that will arise. That's what it means to be human! We have layers upon layers of consciousness and energy that can be cleared and healed. We are meant to be evolving beings, continuing to learn at each step of the journey. We are meant to learn how to be with ourselves, reach out to others for support, live a fully human life, connect with spirit on-goingly for guidance. The fully healed human is not a real thing.
We are empowered beings in this journey. These incredible medicines can support and teach us in learning how to be empowered. But they will not do it all for us. By hitting a challenging space, returning to these medicines hoping for an answer over and over, we are giving our power away. The medicines won't give us what we want, as life isn't designed to fit our ego's desires. Often these medicines bring to the surface things that are reflected like a mirror back to us to that we can truly see ourselves. It's up to us to make the shifts we desire.
Instead of pushing ahead for more, if we pause, take a break, integrate, learn tools and practices to support us, and choose to work at a slower pace, we can start to see the true beauty and power of the medicines. They uplift us and support us in much much deeper ways. They are here to bring us fully into the world shift we all feel is coming. Us, in our imperfect human capacities. But we have to go deep. There is no rush to the finish line. There is no finish line, and rushing isn't the vibration of the medicines and their power. The human experience is meant to be a journey, gathering wisdom along the way. Let's honor the work of the medicines, by also doing our own work in our lives.
