Living Medicine

When I embarked on the journey of becoming an Herbalist, I didn't realize how much I would learn about medicine, myself, and life. This journey has taught me to re-align with nature, more deeply than ever before.  Above all, I've learned how to slow down and be patient, and that it's important to  listen. We are constantly guided in this life. We are always given clues, signs, and messages of what can help us be whole and well.

Just for Today...

I don't know about anyone else, but I find it easy to get overwhelmed when there are several big projects or events in my life coalescing at the same time, and they're all really important.

Just for today, I will not anger. Just for today, I will be grateful. Just for today, I will do my work honestly. Just for today, I will be kind to every living being.   And another little mantra that I've been repeating all morning to help me stay out of worry: Here's hoping you have an inspired and productive day filled with peace of mind, knowing that you have all that you need to fulfill your hopes and dreams!
