I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time now, but was able to put it into words right after this year’s Plant Spirit Medicine Conference. We are in fact on a mission as Plant Spirit Medicine healers. Our mission, should we choose to accept it … goes beyond the precious and beautiful stewardship of our people, beyond our stewardship of the plants, beyond our stewardship of this amazing spiritual medicine. Our mission involves not only helping our clients to move into balance and harmony as they receive healing … our mission is deeper.
It is to witness our clients as they peel the layers of stress, trauma, illness, perception, disconnection …. and they come to touch, even if for just a moment … that place of heart and vision that tells them (or reminds them) in a resonant unforgettable way … who they truly are and what they are truly here to do.
A peak experience in the life of a PSM healer
I have experienced this awakening, this remembering, this “coming home” in many people with whom I have shared Plant Spirit Medicine. It is a moment not unlike the birth of a child or the death of a loved one. A sacred moment, when the veil between the worlds is thin and translucent. A moment worth lifetimes. A moment where something is activated – a memory, an image, an imprint. And just like that, a life is changed and transformed forever. A new person is born.
As a current PSM student on the magical road to becoming a healer, I am deeply inspired by your words and by your example. What a great gift to be an expression of the Divine and watch hearts blossom through the grace of the plants. Thank you for sharing from your heart and from your experience.
Thank you, dear Karla. What a beautiful expression, “hearts blossom through the grace of the plants.” Yes, this continues to be my experience: not only MY heart but the hearts of all who come into contact with Plant Spirit Medicine. Best wishes in your exciting journey to become a PSM healer!
So beautifully expressed Adrilia..it is indeed a humbling and awesome experience simultaneously…
Yes, as a Plant Spirit Medicine healer yourself I am sure you experience this in your practice and with your clients. It is such an honor to see and cultivate and hold space for such transformations!. Best wishes in your beautiful work!
