Today I got an email from a dear friend who has been dabbling in her early studies of the plant world. She has been dipping in and out of the arena for a couple of years. I'd like to share our exchange as an offering to others who may be feeling this way.
She said: "I have a longing to continue studying herbs with you. I'll sit with it. At this point, herbs seem so foreign to me. I feel a bit like an outsider but I am open to shifting that. Not sure when I can attend but I'll sit with it. You are definitely bringing herbs to my door and my heart. I'd like to make better friends with them, to feel their call and welcome..."
My response: "Talk to the herbs L. They love us so, so much. They adore you because you are a divine being growing toward light. They want to merge with you as a vehicle to share that light path and support others. They support our whole life: air, food, earth...
You are not separate from them, they have been with you every day for your entire life."
I ended it with an xoxoxoxo and "the plant people are crazy humble and nice :))))"
After I sent that email, I was filled with gratitude for the Poppy Swap community. We welcome everyone!! Wherever you are at in your journey with herbs!
