Plant Medicine in the Dreamtime
The earth below and night sky above, is vivid in my imagination. I am in bed. My arms thrust forward feeling the pulse of life streaming upon my fingertips. The moonlight dances throughout the space, opening my presence up to an ecstatic state. Attuning with the vibrational and luminous field, I enter into the sacred dreamtime.
Slipping gently into my dreams, my body begins to deeply relax. It is here that I enthusiastically call upon my beloved plant spirit allies.
I begin our connection with a prayer of gratitude. “Thank you for being with me my dear plant allies. I am so grateful for your presence. Please show me what may be important for me to see in the dreamtime at this time. I am open and receptive to any messages or insights you may have for me.”
Pulses of light spontaneously appear and caress my skin. Followed by a gentle wind igniting and lifting me into a far away feeling. Where dreams often take me.
Emerald greens and golden rays of sunshine penetrate the layer between the seen and unseen worlds. I am in the space of dreams. of visions. Great adventure.
As I notice my new surroundings, I notice bright and sparkly plants waving and bending naturally with the winds. Swaying back and forth, a sense of harmony and connection calls my spirit forth. The light of the plants guide the way. I follow the streams of light. It feels natural. Yet, auspiciously unique. Welcoming the waves of light dancing upon the surface of my skin, I follow the flow of energy.
A green and luminous geometric form bathes me in its radiant light. It feels light and airy, calm and friendly,
“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 leaves, like luminous arms, stretch out to greet me. Her presence wrapped snuggly around my body. I feel held. Cocooned. Embodied. I feel connected to the whole Universe. We are breathing as one being.
My heartbeat growing slower and deeper, my senses awaken. All of a sudden, the path has cleared and I find myself in a lush garden. I scan the landscape to get my bearings. Following the forms and colors around me I suddenly realize that I have landed in a tropical rainforest.
A sun beam, in the corner of the space, lights the way ahead. I hear the whisperings of a spirit calling me closer. My eyes follow the light towards a glass paned building etched in between the tropical plants,.
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. Each one there with purpose. Like they have been waiting for me to visit all this time.
I am greeted with three warm smiles, three tamales, rice and beans. I can tell by the look in their eyes, that they want me to eat. and Now.
In one of the woman hands, rests the most giant plate of food I have ever seen. I receive their gifts, graciously.
Tamales, beans and rice, guacamole, chips and salsa, pass into my hands. “Eat”, they say. I hear faint voices and the exchange of giggles.
My eyes peer beyond the three ladies. I notice a beautiful patio lit up with sunlight and french doors to enter back through the garden. “May I enter the garden with my plate of food, I ask?
“Yes,” they answer as they usher me forward with a sweeping motion ahead. Go ahead. Eat. eat.
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 truly in my element here.
The garden is alive, buzzing with life. 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 and gravitational force, I bring myself close to the earth. I enter into a state of sacred communion. My breath expands as my heartbeat mingles and merges with the resonance of the quantum field.
I fall to the earth. Gently, with awareness. The energy is strong. The pulse, deep. I lay my body upon the earth and rest upon its fertile soil. I tune into the matrix of the earth. Timeless and present. Expansive and liberating. I feel at peace. At home. I feel a shift in consciousness and feel connected to the land in a profound way.
Basking in the 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 moving closer to 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 spirited away, I awake to the sound of rains on a beautiful Maui Sunday morning.
