The healing power of nature comes in many different forms. Taking a walk in nature, through meadows, woods, mountains, the beach, and even in your own garden, can bring on a sense of wellbeing. Flowers essences, herbal remedies and homeopathy have been created from nature, they have been made specifically for ones own growth and healing.
It is also true of pharmaceutical companies to, where plants have been studied to see what healing properties they have and then they are made into the drugs that we have available to us today. An example of this is asperin, this has been made from the Willow Tree.
Plants have their own subtle energy/vibration and If you can liken each emotion, mental patterns and thought, as being a certain vibrational frequency, then you can start to have an understanding of some of the most fundamental laws of the the Universe.Each vibration has its own colour frequency relating to the particular thoughts and beliefs that we carry with us. In ancient India and other Eastern belief systems they have linked at least 7 energy centres within our bodies, connecting to the Universe around us. These are called chakras and a colour has been linked to each one. This is another investigation but can also be very much linked with vibrational healing. if one of our centres is out of balance, colour therapy and plant medicine can also help with the rebalancing of these energy portals.
The essences of flowers, herbs, trees and even what some may see as weeds, can help draw out negativity and unbalanced emotions and help to cleanse them,release them, thus helping us to change our negative thought patterns and lifestyle patterns and support us though change, which will then help bring us closer to our authentic selves. This in turn will help our physical bodies aswell, due to if we are feeling better our beings will respond in a more healthy way.
This is called vibrational medicine.
In the ancient times where shop bought drugs were not available to us, we went to the herbalist or the medicine man/woman who would link in to how that person was and what they presented for healing and then use the appropriate healing plants and herbs to help rectify the issue/problem. Today most of us go to the Doctor to help us with our illnesses. we are given drugs that have other chemicals in them that may cause other problems. We have moved away from natural forms of healing.
How about this, when you feel depressed and low, take a walk in nature, start to look into how you are feeling and what you tell yourself. Whilst walking, open your being up to the natural world around you and listen, look and investigate what is there foryou. See what colours attract you, is it the browns of the soil or bark, is it the greens of the leaves/grasses, do the flowers speak to you in some way. When you feel an attraction with a specific plant/tree go and sit with it. ( if its the soil, go and sit on the earth) open up to communing with that plant and sense intuitively what it can offer you in a form of healing. Trust you instincts, they may feel odd and even stupid, but go with the flow, what is there to loose, if it brings on healing. If it doesn’t then you’ve had a pleasant time reconnecting with the beauty that is around you. Even this may make you feel a bit better!
If you are taking conventional medicine now, how about supporting your healing with an investigation into the other more natural forms of healing that may go hand in hand with what you have been prescribed. Or if you are reading this and thinking you need to see a doctor, go see the doctor and get advise, diagnosis and then also investigate if there are any natural forms of medicine/remedies that may help you before going the conventional route. Use your intuition, ask for information from herbalists, homeopaths and energy medicine people and know that there are many choices that you have. Using up to date medicine in conjuction the the more natural forms of medicine can be very powerful. You may not need to take the drugs for as long a time, you may not get the side effects that the drugs may bring. You may even decide to go the unconventional route first, but this is entirely up to you.
May this open up an investigation within you to the natural world around you and what it can offer in all its guises.
*As a side note, there are studies that have been made have recognised that if you are in hospital and you have a window you will heal quicker than if you did’t have a window. Also if no window but a beautiful painting of a nature can also quicken up healing. Nature can bring down blood pressure, immune system is boosted.
Let us also not forget the Sun and the Moon and what energies they offer us for healing too.
