PLANT MEDICINE JOURNEYS AND WOUND HEALING

As a plant medicine carrier and ceremonialist, it seems odd to some that I often recommend people avoid medicine journeys. So many people who embark on medicine journeys do so without having done intensive ego/wound work. They are under a false assumption that the medicine is a healer. The medicine however, is an ally to guide you where you are at. If you haven’t embarked on the healing road with a commitment to do the actual wound clearing work necessary.... plant medicine journeys can open you to entities, fantasies, delusions and visions that are not anchored in light. .

Moreover, many people leading plant medicine journeys are themselves still carrying ego projections which intermingle with your medicine. There are others who have utilized plant medicine journeys but have now entirely rejected them - believing you can “do it” on your own. Theoretically that is true. Practically speaking, those I’ve worked with have experienced radical karmic clearing in 8 hours that would’ve taken a decade or more - if even possible - of dedicated yoga practice. That being said... these are true warriors - having done extensive work on their wounds and inner children prior to their journeys. A true light-anchored medicine journey offers you a state of mind that frees you from the thinking brain. This rare state shuts down the prefrontal cortex, putting you in a state known as transient hypofrontality.

It is here that you experience that time is a distributed perception calculated all over the ego brain. In a grounded journey, you move out of time and into vision... which is anchored in the occipital lobes.

When we are in transient hypofrontality, we no longer process time. We enter TRUE expanded now. When we are immersed in the NOW we stop reviewing our past for pain. We stop daydreaming. We stop creating fantasy. We exist entirely outside the conditioned matrix. These master plants are the earth teachers. They connect you to your light body. But only if you’ve cleared an open path. 🙏🏻

The canoe of He-Who-Is-Tattooed-Completely

Stands as a temple relic, glistening in the heat of the sun. There its bow, center, and stern rest on chocks. (Chocks: a wedge or block placed against a wheel to prevent it from moving.) In other words... The journey into the profound cannot be done if the vehicle.... no matter how stately the owner - is incapacitated. (Translation by Taupōuri Tangarō)

This is part of the mele (songs), central to hula Pele... Fire Goddess...

This phrase is like a world unto itself... like a zen koan ... profound truths unraveled through immersion... The vehicle... YOU as a human... no matter how “stately” you may be... you are incapacitated when you hold on to your attachments, wounds, “identity” and wounded inner children.

FLOWER MEDICINE: THE HEALING POWER OF FLOWER BATHS AND ESSENCES

FLOWER MEDICINE:  THE HEALING POWER OF FLOWER BATHS AND ESSENCES

For those of you who have been with me for a while, you know my deep love of, reverence for, and appreciation of flowers. I have always felt deeply connected to flowers, and my home - both inside and out...is filled with and surrounded with the magical blooms of tropical flowers. I have written many times about flowers in their healing capacity, I paint flowers on almost every painting I do, I spend time in connection with the devas

CREATORS, VISIONARIES, LIGHTWORKERS: VALUE YOURSELF

CREATORS, VISIONARIES, LIGHTWORKERS: VALUE YOURSELF

I wanted to write on an important issue affecting many people close to me right now, and this is incredibly important if you yourself are here on this earth to participate in the healing of humanity in an active way. It is the issue of working in the healing arts and its relationship to abundance.

THE FRUITS OF OUR SURRENDER

In the past week, I have seen a number of absolutely 'miraculous' events happen to some people who are very close to me. Resolutions to long term difficult situations, agreement and cooperation within challenging relationships, the almost immediate sale of a home that needed to be sold, a radical change in

WHEN THE HEALING PATH BECOMES ITS OWN STORY

Today I have a message that may be relevant for many of you going through healing work, and internal work: Be cautious and mindful that your healing process doesn't create a new story, one that is seemingly "better" and more convincing than the old one. 

This is a big one. And it's a common trap. It can also be confusing so rather than extended explanations, let me give you a practical example.
