So as many of you that follow my personal blog know, I am in Sedona, Arizona for a stint of personal time out, spiritual retreat and also to soak up whatever unexpected magic comes my way. And yes Sedona has been kind to my heart as I discovered some lovely little healing plants and trees full of wisdom here.
Not only did they speak to me of their healing properties but I felt gifted with two beautiful remedies that whispered a message of their healing for the Irish at home. I feel so blessed and honoured to be gifted this knowledge to bring home with me. Not many plants in an environment translate into healing for people from a different culture and country; so this is something precious. I will soon write-up separate entries for Indian Paintbrush and the local Juniper so if you are interested to read more than click into the menu on to the individual plant entries.
It’s not that simple a process to hear the healing secrets within a plant. There is no book that I go to for the answers; but rather I prefer to spend time with the plants that I am drawn to, to sense their healing. This is how I first knew how to make the plant energy essences; from simply being in nature and using my intuition from there and it is a practice that I have maintained ever since despite what other people are doing (other use slight variations; I have stayed true to what I was shown). I believe that the language of plants is very specific to the country, location, history of the land and needs of the people. And if I don’t honour this, then the plants may no longer speak.
Many people across the UK, USA and globally are tapping into the innate healing energy of plants. We all have our own tweaks and unique differences in how we make and use the remedies; perhaps this is because there is a healing energy from us the makers in each remedy also. I take great care to align myself with the best of heart centered intentions when I make the remedies; they are a gift from mother nature for our health, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing.
So earlier in the week I spent some time with the plants that I had been drawn to the previous week during my work with Clint. Only this time I sat alone with the plants, with Thunder mountain to my back and in the relative peace and quiet away from tourists. Here are some photos and a quick blog that I recorded:
So today April 1st 2016, I ventured up a different side of Thunder mountain closer to her energy spots as this called me to find the plants that I was seeking; Indian paintbrush and Juniper.
Aren’t the views amazing?
Here are a few words that I recorded on how i found myself exactly where I needed to be.
And also a few words that may resonate with sensitive persons
I will write more about these beautiful healing plants from Sedona, under the heading Indian Paintbrush and Sedona Juniper.
PS Here are a selection of other shots that I took of the beautiful spring flowers as they came to life during my stay. I wish more had called me; perhaps they will another time. I apologise that I don’t have them all identified. If you google wild flowers Sedona you will see just how tricky this is!
Oh and a wee update about PhiBee aromatics aromatherapy oils that I will be introducing to the clinic soon; these are wow and wow the most amazing pines, firs, junipers, sages and local flowers that I have ever smell-experienced.
