Plant Medicine in the Dreamtime
Tuning into the energetic matrix of the earth below and night sky above, I stretch my arms forward feeling the pulse of life streaming forth upon my fingertips. Touching the light and feeling the expansion and swirling sensation among my bedroom space, I attune to the vibrational and luminous field forming. At once, I enter into the sacred dreamtime.
Slipping gently into my dreams, as my body begins to deeply relax, I enthusiastically call upon my beloved plant spirit allies.
“Thank you for being with me my dear plant allies. I am so grateful for your presence in my life. Please offer me a connection in the dreamtime. Show me what would be beneficial to experience at this time.
Pulses of light spontaneously appear and caress my skin, followed by a gentle wind igniting and lifting me into a beautiful adventure.
Reflections of greens and golden rays of sunshine penetrate the layer between the seen and unseen worlds. Plants waving in the wind, swaying back and forth, in harmony with the dancing winds, call my spirit forth illuminating the way. welcoming the waves of light dancing upon the surface of my skin, I follow the flow of energy.
Light and airy, calm and friendly, a green and luminous geometric form bathes me in its significant light.
“You are so beautiful…Who are you, I ask?”
“I am a healing plant. Some refer to me as Noni.”
Bitter in taste, sweet in nature, she wraps me up in an ecstatic trance. Her arms now wrapped snuggly around my body.
My heartbeat growing slower and deeper, I find myself in a lush garden. I scan the garden to learn more from my new environment. Following the forms and colors me I realize that I have landed in a tropical rainforest.
I follow a sun beam lighting the way ahead. Cascading through the glass paned building etched in between the tropical plants, I hear the whisperings of a spirit calling me closer.
Luminous green lights sparkle and flicker catching my eye. Following the beam of light as far as I can go, I stand at the doorway greeted by three beautiful radiant forms.
Three colorfully dressed women with warm smiles reach out to greet me. In one of the woman hands, rests a giant plate of food. Offerings of beans, rice and guacamole in the greatest heaping pile awaits me. I receive their gifts.
Tamales, beans and rice, guacamole, chips and salsa, pass into my hands. “Eat”, they say. I hear faint voices and the exchange of giggles.
“May I enter the garden with my food, I ask?
“Yes,” they answer as they usher me forward with a sweeping motion ahead.
Feeling excited, I enter a wonderful and magical space. Out the French doors into the garden, I meet an array of plants illuminating the space. Scanning the garden, left to right, then back again, I realize that I am the only human in the garden. I am at peace. Grateful.
The garden is alive, buzzing with life purpose. I feel a buzz and pulse of life connecting with my field of energy. Setting down the food on the steps of the passageway, I follow a thread of light to the tall and luminous green leaves, in the near distance.
Feeling a pulse of gravity bringing me closer to the earth, I enter into a state of sacred communion. My breath expanding as my heartbeat mingles and merges with the resonance of the light.
Laying upon the earth and resting upon the fertile soil, I tune into the matrix of the earth. Timeless and present. Expansive and liberating. I feel at peace. At home. A natural state of being emerges and returns to my being.
Enjoying the collective field of energy, breathing and expanding my awareness, a message of light is sent my way, as if carried on the wind of change.
“Take a leaf and rub this leaf upon your body.” I hear the spirit say.
I peel off the layers of my clothes. Feeling uninhibited and free. I come closer to the earth.
Feeling a cleansing sweep of a warmth sensation, I allow an intimate dance with the plant spirits to fill me.
Engaged, I experience a familiar and warm feeling rubbing up against my body. Taking the leaf in my hand, I rub my whole body with the plant, in a sweeping and cleansing motion.
“Prepare yourself and be gentle.” I hear stirring in the winds. “This will help center you as you go forth on your new journey.”
Feeling transported, yet ever present in this new reality, I take the time to receive the healing and transmissions available to me among this collective field of energy.
Feelings of gratitude encompass my awareness, as I offer thanks to the spirit of this luminous and beautiful feminine plant.
Moments later, I awake from this beautiful dream. Sunlight streaming through the window, with the feeling of spirit on my skin.
Refreshed and inspired, I awake to the sound of rains on a beautiful Maui Sunday morning.
