Medicine Wisdom In A Reading: “The Earth Mother agrees to support your wants and needs, to help you live your best life and fulfill your dreams. Her generosity and her power to assist you is beyond what you can imagine. She is already leading you towards your sacred life purpose, providing exactly what is needed for your soul to blossom, just as she creates what is needed for the flowers of the earth to bloom. This is confirmation that you are on your sacred path. It may take some twists and turns, but you are headed in the right direction, and you are being supported in all ways to gain all the experiences and blessings that are meant for you.”
Spiritual Guidance: “You are a wild woman. You have the spiritual gift of medicine wisdom, the healing way of the sacred feminine. This soul wisdom and healing ability comes from Mother Nature. Her seasons and weather, her landscapes and the particular life that they support – including her animals, plants and crystals – all have their own unique purpose and healing power. Learning to recognize the signs, to feel for their meaning, to listen for guidance and activate the medicine wisdom in yourself and your life is your training as a true medicine woman of the soul. Listening, intuiting, feeling, experiencing, trusting – these are the ways you begin to tap into and harness the grace, beauty and power of the sacred feminine for healing purposes. When you live your life from a place of playful connection, reverence and gratitude for the Divine Feminine, she will love and empower you to accomplish things that you could never do on your own. She is an infinitely practical divine being, able to help you with every aspect of your life on Earth and, through you, to help others too. She is asking you to trust her, to let go of logic, or believing that you have to accomplish it all on your own. Let yourself be in creative partnership with the Divine Feminine, with Mother Nature, and as your earthly cares are provided for with ease and grace, you can dedicate your energy and focus to discovering and expressing your talents, which is how you fulfill your life purpose.”
Sacred Ritual: “Place a hand on your heart and say aloud, “I accept my calling as a true medicine woman of the soul, supported on all levels by the powerful grace of the Divine Feminine. I trust that Mother Nature is speaking to me daily, showing me the way to fulfillment, happiness, and peace for myself and all beings.”*

You are being called back to the natural world in order for healing to take place. Back to the forest, the trees, the ocean, the lakes and streams. Back to the sun and the moon and the stars. Back to the healing properties of herbs and the deep wisdom of the plants and animals. Everything in the natural world has something to offer us, if we slow down and take the time to seek out it’s unique wisdom.
If you are feeling disconnected, isolated or alone, or if you have been spreading yourself too thin, this is a time to take some much needed rest. Wander in search of yourself, and to deepen your connection to the earth herself. Use all of your senses to communicate with her, to soak her all in.
This is also a time to step into being the medicine woman, or man. The healer, the shaman, the protector. What can you change about how you are living your life to make it more sustainable for the planet? How can you help it’s inhabitants? What simple thing can you incorporate into your life that would make a difference? Cutting back on water use; recycling more; buying local; disposing of medication, batteries and technology safely; repurposing something instead of discarding it; walking instead of driving today; incorporating at least one night of meatless dinners into your week; contributing to a cause or helping clean up a beach, using herbal medicine when possible instead of over the counter, refusing packaged or GMO’d foods… the list is endless.
Each of us can use our body, mind and spirit to reconnect. To ourselves, to the Earth and to each other.
