Plant Spirit Healing
The heart sees the Giver of the secret – Rumi
Plant Spirit Healing is an energetic way of working with the wisdom and healing properties of plants.
It may serve to:
The Plant / Human Connection
The Plant Kingdom existed on our planet long before humans. Plants have always supported our physical needs through nutrition, fabrics, and medicines. But on a deeper level, we inherently share mutually supportive cellular constructs; living plants provide oxygen to us and photosynthesize the carbon dioxide we exhale. The reality is that we exchange our breath with living plants in a synergistic process that allows both of us to flourish. Without this exchange, we humans would not survive.
Plants are ahead of us in learning to accommodate to climactic and environmental changes by updating their own biochemical requirements and characteristics. They have much to offer us in this regard, possessing unique qualifications to teach us energetically and consciously about evolutionary possibilities and methods from a perspective that is both ancient and productive.
Beyond the material plane, we can access the more subtle gifts that the plant kingdom offers humanity as well. Indigenous peoples have always listened to plants and passed down stories and legends revering the adventures and heroism of local plant beings. Tribal medicine men of many cultures are skilled at entering the dreamtime with plants for healing purposes. In the past, when our ancestors lived closer to nature, they were often able to discern the true gifts of plants. This awareness is often reflected in the common names they gave to plants, such as Bleeding Heart, Snapdragon and Lady’s Slipper.
Plants have much to tell us about our mutual world and about our selves as living members of it. When we connect our energies and consciousness with theirs, they can heal a great many of our modern day ills. As a western culture modality, plant spirit medicine is a fairly recent development. It falls into the currently popular trend of turning to shamanic approaches in order to receive healing that allopathic methods have failed to provide. For those interested in learning more about the science behind this concept, there are many resources available now, e.g. documented studies about the effects of mental and emotional human intervention on living plants, explorations of shamanism and explanations based on quantum physics, corollaries between the herbal, homeopathic, vibrational and subtle effects of plants on humans, and so on.
How does Plant Spirit Healing work?
Plant Spirit Healing is conducted nonlocally, outside of linear time and space. Because the plant spirits exist in a different dimension than we do, distance is not a factor and sessions can be conducted with clients anywhere in the world. As with indigenous shamanic medicine traditions, it is the practitioner’s respect and honoring of their plant spirit allies that allows access to their bounteous gifts.
Sessions are co-creative, meaning that it is the cooperation and coordination of multidimensionally diverse beings (plant, human or animal, Divine Intelligence) working together to transform states of living energy. All living beings are composed of energy, which can be transformed. When we invite the plant spirits to directly interface with our own vibrational field and allow our energies to merge with theirs, we can directly enter into resonance with the perfected blueprints of teaching and healing plant spirits, thereby potentiating more harmonious states in our own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy bodies.
Plant Spirit Healing sessions
Through her intuitive ability to connect with the plant spirits and the ongoing relationships she cultivates with them, Susan has established plant spirit allies. These allies serve as guides for her and as healers for her clients. They can also allow her access to other plant spirits related to her clients’ personal affinities and needs, when appropriate.
All Plant Spirit Healing sessions are done remotely from Susan’s sacred healing space. They begin with a brief conversation to answer any questions you may have and to define your healing intention. Sessions may be conducted interactively over the phone or you may relax off the phone during the work, and discuss it with her afterward. All that you need to do is be quiet, relaxed, fully present (undistracted), and in an intentionally receptive state in order to receive the healing energies offered.
As a practitioner, Susan serves as a conduit for the energetic and sentient gifts plants offer her clients. As with all healing practices, she is not personally the healer. Healing is an inside job, conducted by the individual seeking it. Susan serves as a bridge between her clients and the plant spirits – a conduit for the necessary connections, guidance, and energetic transmissions offered by the plant kingdom. She opens and maintains the links between her inner awareness, her client’s energy field, and her plant allies.
Susan will attune to your energy field, call upon her plant allies, and inform them of your healing intention. They may work to strengthen or integrate your energy field, release what is outdated or doesn’t belong to you, relieve you of obstructions that may be holding you back in some way, or catalyze a new awareness of the path you are to take next in life.
You may be invited to a sacred healing temple to restore your spirit, a sacred woodland to find your path, a flowery meadow to lighten your heart, a flowing stream to release what ails you, or the underworld where you can release heavy burdens. Anywhere the plant spirits reside and work is open to those willing to embark on a journey into their world in search of healing and wholeness.
You may or may not notice physical sensations during the session. Thoughts, images, or ideas may come to you as the session unfolds. Or you may become deeply relaxed and fall asleep.
Supporting session results
Susan serves as a witness as well as channel for the sessions, so she can fill you in on what transpired if you are not aware of it. Her observations generally dovetail with her clients' experiences during or after the session. Though precise images and impressions may vary due to your respective filters, the healing journey and its meaning will be resonant and interpretation is often quite clear either in the wake of the session or sometime afterward.
It is best to allow yourself to rest afterward, to integrate the healing effects and gently return to your everyday awareness. Lucid dreams may occur during a nap afterward or overnight. Many people report an unusual sense of clarity and renewed vitality after the session. Increased confidence, self-assurance, creativity, inspiration, or answers to long held questions are frequently reported in the days that follow.
She may offer you an essence of the plant(s) who facilitated your healing, or offer suggestions for ways to further the direction initiated by the session. Such support can help maintain the energetic shifts created by the session, and can be especially helpful when work on the soul level was facilitated.
Your Plant Spirit helpers
Susan is happy to reveal to you who your plant spirit helpers were, and what she observed during your session.
She will be able to explain to you more about the gifts of the plant spirits who came to work with you, and offer you ideas of how you might deepen your personal connection with them.
Animals generally respond beautifully to plant spirit healing work, because of their inherent connection to the natural world. Both outdoor and indoor animals respond quickly and deeply to healing plant spirit connections.
Because she is also an animal communicator, Susan is able to ask the animal what they wish to address, to hear from them about their session experience, and to inquire how they feel afterward, in addition to discerning shifts in their energy field in response to the work. She will tell you what she observed and what they have to say about their session.
Some animals will benefit from a flower essence after their session, which can serve as a vibrational reminder and easy way for them to remain connected to Nature.
Susan’s Plant Spirit Healing sessions are dedicated to the health of the Earth and to Nature …
