What is Plant Spirit Medicine?

Humans and plants have lived together for countless generations.  We are One.   Plants are used food and medicine. Like us, plants have spirit, and their spirit can nurture and heal us. We come from the earth therefore we must learn to heal from the earth.  Plant Spirit Medicine brings us into balance and harmony.  It is the shamans’ way with plants. A millennial practice known to all peoples.

Plant Spirit Medicine is a form of spiritual healing rooted in ancestral traditions that combine ancient Chinese Five Element theory with the indigenous practice of calling upon plant spirits to heal. Plant Spirit Medicine recognizes that like humans, plants have spirit, and their spirit has the unique capacity to touch and heal the spirit of a human being and restore us to harmony and balance.

 

Receiving Plant Spirit Medicine

Plant Spirit Medicine is a form of spiritual healing that combines the traditions of ancient Chinese Five Element Medicine and the indigenous practice of using plant spirits for healing. It is a powerful, gentle, subtle healing modality. No substances are prescribed or administered. Plant Spirit Medicine healers call upon the spirits of the plants to bring balance and harmony to their patients, removing whatever may be standing in their way as they endeavor to live joyful, balanced lives.

Our Plant Spirit Medicine healers are Shamanic Energy Practitioners that have been trained in Plant Medicine and Shamanic practices. Each practitioner has been trained on the the art of plant medicine and its administration. Sessions include follow up sessions with a   Integrative Therapist  that has been trained in mental health and  provides  integration after the sessions to assist in processing information that surfaced during the healing session.

What To Expect from a Plant Medicine Session?

In your session, your PSM practitioner will listen to your concerns and guide you in setting intentions  of what you need and which plants can best help you. The healer will then call upon the plant spirit best suited for you. The Plant Spirit Medicine healer is a matchmaker between what you need and the plants that have the willingness and ability to provide it. Each session typically lasts between 90 minutes and 3 hours. During a Plant Spirit Medicine session, your healer will work with the plant spirits to remove any energy blockages and imbalances. Each treatment builds upon the last, laying the foundation for health. During your sessions your healer may provide energy work or sound healing to assist in promoting grounding and releasing blockages.

How will I feel after a Plant Spirit Medicine treatment?

There is no standard response to a Plant Spirit Medicine healing session. The plants and your healer value the uniqueness of each person.  Some clients may feel relaxed after a session; others may feel energized. Regardless, it is best to always allow time for yourself after your first healing sessions.

How many Plant Spirit Medicine Sessions will I need?

In our world we are used to quick fixes and immediate results.  Yet true healing requires going to the source of the imbalance and patiently and persistently giving the person what they have been lacking. As we can see in nature, nothing happens overnight.  It takes time for the soil to be prepared with the proper nutrients, time for the seed to germinate, time for the seed to sprout and time for it to come into bloom.  Like nature, Plant Spirit Medicine is not a one-time fix.  It sets the proper conditions for our healing, bringing balance and healing in the proper time.  It gives us the time to reconnect with the true source of our healing and wellbeing.  Because there is no set number of sessions for a given person, please talk to your healer about what to expect for you.
