Honor Plant & Animal Medicines by Honoring Yourself
In order to utilize plant and animal medicine when trying to overcome obstacles when all else fails. I would try spending time in nature, breathing working or listening to your heart beat and getting grounded. Being like a tree rooted and getting the nutrients to peace through your combined roots with the tree. I would also recommend trying to leave your television, radio and music or videos access and phone off for at least a week. Don’t carry it around with you and make it an attachment that controls your view of life. I would try stretching, walking and yoga and exercise without a thought of competition but of well-being and oneness of self.
Plant and Animal medicine must be studied how the tribes used it, how they administered, processed and ingest it. Was it harmful to the plant or animal? Was it honored by you studying and asking questions about it’s side affects, the benefits and antidotes if taken improperly. First of all and then research the character and ways of the person/Shaman administering these. Are they ethical in views of the plant and people they administer. Do you feel or hear a positive and calm information that matches what you have learned on your own research? Also learn the cultural ways that the plant medicine is learned from by the tribes by their ceremonies. Just for my own preference; I like to research the Shaman or Facilitator or Administer and a small intimate group 8 or less but others like large.
You then, at home, create a ceremony when you are sure of your intentions formed after journaling and researching and asking questions. Respect of oneself and the intentional purpose of the union with these plants or animal medicines is important to light a candle for 7 days that is white or burn copal, sage, etc. that clear your energy on
