(Audio) Plant Spirit Medicine #2

Transform Health

What is Plant Spirit Medicine? Join herbalist and nutritionist Diana Sproul as she presents plant spirit medicine as explained in Eliot Cowan's book of the same name. Plants, trees, rain, lightning and the Chinese elements (like water, metal, earth) are each represented by a consciousness. These may appear through meditation or dreaming in human, animal, insect or other form. Healing an imbalance or lack of a certain element in a person’s spiritual make-up and life can help a person become well and whole again without addressing the illness itself. The author says that is ordinary, and that all of us can learn to do what he does. Author Eliot Cowan does training at the Blue Deer Center in New York state. This lecture is Part 2 of 4 parts.

4:25 How the shamans contact the plants (dreaming, vision quest, meditation, calling, other)

5:05 Patient treatment is customized, not standard

5:18 My flawed logic, One herb can have 20+ properties to treat different conditions

7:20 Author interviewed several shamans and plant spirit medicine healers living today in America, see the book!

7:35 About herbal Osha, grows at high elevations, bears use it for healing, resembles dangerous plants so identify well. Root is used. Many other great cough herbs could be used in place of endangered osha.

8:55 Shaman uses osha as healing assistant

9:10 Picked plants still contain the plant spirit in them. My meditating test with powdered herbs in capsule

9:45 Herbs eaten or drunk as tea, then shaman waits for dream messages

9:55 Healing at a distance is possible

11:15 Everything in the world is interconnected in the shaman’s world view

11:42 Our world name, and spirit world named “Real World.”

12:05 “There are no herbs for certain illnesses”, how used - living shaman quote

12:50 Working with the intention, not physical plants

13:13 African herbalist/anthropologist studies effectiveness of traditional healers/ shamans vs. Western trained doctors, different plant parts have different qualities

13:50 Voices and drums used to “quicken” the plants

14:24 African anthropologist has to pay people cured by local healers to get physical proof via Western medical tests.
