As our lives become more absorbed in screen time rather than the great outdoors, it feels essential to open up our senses again to the riches of nature, reestablishing our connection with the heartbeat of the Earth. In this book, Fay Johnstone provides a road map for bridging the gap between plants and people, allowing our sacred relationship with the Green Kingdom to be restored.
Fay shows how to confidently meet, explore, and build relationships with key plant allies to enjoy a more balanced connection with yourself and your environment. Sharing her passion for the plant world, she provides a practical guide to rekindling your connection with nature, opening up to plant consciousness as a way to enrich your path and weave the enchantment of nature back into your own life. She includes more than 40 simple, practical exercises and meditations to guide you on a heart-centered journey of transformation and commune with the environment, the seasons, the cycles of the moon, and the Earth Heart. Addressing plants as conscious beings we meet their spirit, while at the same time aligning with our own true nature and sense of purpose as a creature of this Earth.
The book also introduces the shamanic practice of plant spirit healing, emphasizing that ceremony begins at home with our local plants, rather than with the famous plant healers of the Amazon. Guided meditations and shamanic journeys enable a deeper exploration and interaction with the spirit of plants for healing and support. The author offers practical advice on how to initiate a conversation with plants and meet a plant ally with wisdom teachings specific to you and your path.
Whether you explore your back garden, office plants, or morning cup of tea, Fay reveals how to introduce the magic of plants into your daily routine and appreciate the important role plants play. Reaching out to interact with nature is a step forward not only on your personal journey to wholeness but also toward healing our Earth.
