Connect with Plants

In some Native languages the term for plants translates to “those who take care of us”.

~ Robin Wall Kimmerer

Receive the restorative energy of plants and open your world to the richness of their teachings. Connect with plants from the comfort of home or from anywhere else in the world. Have you worked with plants before in the context of Traditional Master Plant Dieting or Social Dieting? Then you know how powerful and precious a system that involves the energy of a plant is.
Are you new to the world of healing with plants and would like to explore this type of work? Then a Plant Connection is a wonderful beginning.

What is a plant connection?

A plant connection is a spiritual agreement between you and a plant. This agreement says something along these lines: “I will give myself time and attention during the process with the plant, I will hold myself with care, and I will patiently allow the healing process to unfold”. To which the plant responds: “You will receive my energy, my healing power and my teachings. I will help you receive the messages you need from within, I will shed my light on your path and lovingly hold you as you grow.”

Plant connections start with a minimum of 7 days. We usually recommend to start with a two-week journey, so you have time to go deeper and familiarize with the process. You can also prolong the process and sit in connection for 3 weeks or 28 days.

The basics

Simple, subtle and at the same time profound, plant connections create spaciousness within the mind, and promote the flow of healing energies in the body. The system anchors in and draws on three powerful elements:

  • the intentions
  • the plant
  • the activities

The intentions

Your intentions are the driving force of your restorative process. They are the bridge between where you are right now and where you want to be. Simple and clear intentions help you find your way towards meaning, joy, emotional and spiritual health, and wholeness.

Setting your intentions is a beautiful and delicate process that consists of exploring where you are in life right now, looking at the things that hold you back, and embracing the reality of who you can become. Intentions setting is a self-awareness exercise that we engage in together at the beginning of the plant connection journey.

The plant

Rose, lavender, white sage, birch or linden, are just a few of the powerhouse plant allies ready to lend us their energy so we can heal, grow and learn more about ourselves. In plant connections we work with the spiritual dimension of flowers, plants and trees. Each plant represents a world of knowledge and resources. Rose, for example, is a plant medicine that opens the heart, strengthens the core so we can stand in our power, teaches us about healthy boundaries, and helps us connect with our emotions.

The activities

The simple activities for self-awareness and awakening the body’s innate capacity to heal represent the pace of the plant connection journey:

  • 1 week – one activity each day
  • 2 weeks – 10 activities
  • 3 weeks – 12 activities
  • 4 weeks – 15 activities

The activities are tailor-made and they create and carry an energy current that takes you deep within yourself. The activities help you connect more with your truth, with the plant, and the healing process. We base the activities on your intentions.

The restrictions

The plant connection is a spiritual cleaning process. Some denser energies do not serve the process, as they can energetically weigh you down or bring confusion. Therefore, during your plant connection, we recommend you respect the following: no alcohol, no mind altering substances, no pork or beef, and sexual intimacy only in the container of a relationship”.

The reward

The law of nature remains the same when we engage in plant connections: “The more we give, the more we receive”.

Plant connections offer wonderful support as we learn how to make peace with ourselves, as we close a chapter and begin another in our book of life, or simply grow roots and rise high in the story that we are in right now. Generous beyond measure and carrying the mysterious medicine and wisdom of ages, plants are here to help us live full lives. The question is: “Are we ready to receive?”.
