Recently, I started working a job at an herb and natural medicine store called Chakra 4: Herb Co. This opportunity has set me on a path of studying plant’s and natural medicines more than ever before! I am literally surrounded by hundreds of various herbs and thousands of years of plant knowledge at my disposal. I help people find out about herbal uses and benefits, while tasting various tea’s and subjecting myself through herbal experiments to study their effects.
By working with these wonderful plant's, I have been able to develop a relationship with them. Through meditation and listening to my intuition I began to actually communicate with the consciousness of the plant, or in other words, the Plant Spirit. Communicating with a plant is unlike talking to a human. For me, it comes in as impressions, feelings, even images. By communicating with and studying them I began to receive some powerful realizations that I feel compelled to share. The following is a message to us from the Plant kingdom's:
Restoring harmony with the Plant Kingdom
It is of crucial importance that we restore the balance in nature and heal our relationship with plant’s. Far too long have we been burning forests, polluting our Planet, draining its resources, and living in ignorance. It’s time we respect the forces of nature and honor the intelligence behind all plant life. Let us bring plant’s more into our every day lives and create a relationship with them. At the same time let us not abuse and overuse plant use with unconsciousness, such as the smoking epidemic. It is all about balance and honoring the medicine of the plant with full awareness. As we develop a positive, balanced relationship with plants, a symbiosis will occur that has the potential to heal and restore our true way of life.
Plants want to help us Heal
Plant’s not only can help us heal, they WANT to help us heal. They literally are reaching out for us, growing every where, pushing through the concrete, with resilience and adaptability. We call them “weeds”, and hack away at them, throwing them in the garbage with no hesitation. Little do we know that most of them are probably what we need most for their medicine. Take a moment to discover what plant's are growing around you, and see what they are. The Plant spirits know we are sick and in pain, and they know they can help us, its up for us to listen and work with them.
Plant’s will catalyze our Evolution
As one set’s on the path of healing, one will also inevitably set on the path of Evolution, and vice versa. I asked the plant spirits, “Why do we need them? Can’t we just be sustainable on our own and heal ourselves”. And the great Plant spirit immediately responded, "This is the Way it Is. This is the way Creator designed this Earth system to be. Human's are not isolated creatures from everything else. We are all intimately connected. The Divine creator developed a system in which human’s are meant to live in harmony with plant’s, ingesting them, growing them, cultivating them. When we do this, we live in accordance with natural law. When we live with natural law, we set the stage for our advancement and evolution as a species. Plant’s will help us evolve, and we can do the same for them.
Plant’s will help us communicate with the Earth Consciousness
The Earth, our Planet, is alive. It has a consciousness, it has a mind. It thinks and it feels. It’s children are the plant kingdom’s, and they are the intermediaries between us and the Earth Consciousness. They are like the Earth’s ambassador’s, and working with them will strengthen our link and enhance our dialogue with the Planet. They will help us better understand what the Earth is thinking and feeling, and help bring about the total symbiosis of all species as a collective planetary consciousness, which will help steer us into a total harmonious existence.
Humans and Plant’s where once One being
Plant’s are our distant relatives. Millions upon Millions of year’s ago when we were all just multi-cellular organisms, we were swimming together in the hot geothermal pools of ancient volcanoes. We were the same. Some of us decided to stay and feed for nutrients on the edge of the geothermal pools, while the other’s felt drawn to the center of the pool and receive nutrients from the sunlight itself, who then developed photosynthesis and became the Plant Kingdom. Human’s and Plant’s are forever linked to each other. Think about it, we are simply the walking and talking version of Tree's. We share many of the same physiology and structure. We literally inhale and exhale into each other. We need each other to exist.
The Vision of the Symbiosis Revolution
In meditation, I closed my eyes and received a vision. In this vision I saw a lush and vibrant forest of Redwood Tree’s. Zooming through this forest, I witnessed a village of white domes and tent-like structures interconnected through the tree’s. The people living there were vibrant and healthy. Plant’s and animals alike were living in unison and in harmony. Our very existence actually improved the health of the forest. We no longer were the parasites or virus of the Earth, we became the White blood cells and Superfoods of the Earth. The human race had finally stepped into the role of Custodians and Gaurdians of our Planet. We were extremely advanced, spiritually and technologically. We had fused the wisdom of the ancient world with the knowledge of the modern world. Tribal with Tech. We were highly psychic and obtained long lives well over 200. I saw the whole Planet, living and breathing as one being, one consciousness, one mind in harmony. Everything lit up into pure light, and what happens next is a beautiful surprise beyond our wildest Dreams.
This is the vision I had which gave me a glimpse into a possible future reality we have before us. It’s up to us, NOW – THIS generation, to decide if we want to finally honor our planet and create a symbiotic relationship with the Plant Kingdom. If not, we are doomed for even worse illness and destruction. And we can decide to do that Now. We can take simple actions to start bringing more awareness of plant’s into our lives.
My favorite way right now is making Tea. I collect various herbs and medicinal formula’s and make sure to serve myself a glass of tea every day. Tea allow’s me to not only reap the health benefits of the plants, but I get to smell them, taste them, and ingest them into my body which creates a deeper relationship with them. Tea is a beautiful art in and of itself that everyone should have more of in their life.
