These are your medicines for the world, and this world badly needs them.
Whatever insights you have attained in the company of non-human community in this world, share them.
Each image below is of some medicine gifted to me and each carries a story I would tell if asked. I am no shaman, no wise sage, no person with indigenous ancestry (that I am aware - never took a DNA test), but I do spend time connecting deeply to Nature Community.
It is possible people who are shamans, healers, and knowers have prayed over you in ways you will never know. It is possible people and nature beings have gifted you medicine, but you don't yet see what it is.
When I feel overwhelmed with paying bills and all the suffering caused by the way I live in my economic and physical disconnection from nature, the fastest route to heart space for me is saying the phrase, "In nature nothing exists alone."
None of us exists alone. All of us can bring medicine.
Consider joining me either to walk a bit of the journey, drop off some much needed water, or contribute how ever many of the 25 miles I complete in dollars to a neighbor in need of healing. Thank you!
My goal is by Solstice 2014 to post an Etsy page from which anyone can purchase gifts made by hand in loving kindness meditation with the intent that each wearer know they are loved. What this means is I used to spend an hour or so a day meditating, but now I knit my meditation. Each stitch is part of a loving kindness mantra, and my challenge - as in meditation - is to maintain my focus on such phrases as "may all beings be free (of suffering)," "may all beings know peace," "may all beings be safe," "may all beings be filled with loving kindness." Of course there will be moments of lapse of focus in the knitting, but my intention is that loving healing energy will be transmitted to the wearer.
