We put them in our bodies, and we assimilate them physically. Ingesting them is powerful, but the healing works more magnificently on the spiritual level. The wisdom and consciousness of a plant contains a whole universe that can reconnect us to the original place of healing.
We don't have to actually ingest these plants to tap into their wisdom. We can also call on them in spirit - inviting their special gifts to come support, guide and heal. Developing a relationship with a plant is like developing a relationship with a person - it requires a mutual respect, reverence, and communication. The plants won't be able to come support us unless we ask. As we offer our deepest gratitude from our hearts for being reconnected to our wholeness, we take part in reciprocity. The laws of the universe - what goes around comes around. We are in the cycle of life.
All things are connected in spirit, all things are spirit, and yet, we have the incredible opportunity to learn the unique gifts of the spirit of the plants each in our own way.
How are you connected to the spirit of plants?
