Many thanks and blessings for this beautifully written piece of art! It is in the Spirit of ALL that we should always find our way back home, our bioregional place of upbringings.
I had been blessed and I truly believe that many of the trees, stones, flowers, birds, plants, animals — each of the Spirits in these inanimate and animate objects and creatures — has worked their way through me over the past years I’ve been away from home, coursing through my very veins like blood and rivers
flowing…and granted one day, I was brought back to where my roots had first given birth and connected me with the Land I once lived and played on. Living back with those roots and being re-connected with the land once again, I know I am on a life-time commitment to these various plants and herbs of healings that are found around our area and on our property —
and it is in my true heart and soul in listening to all they have to share with me, and sharing my experiences with those who will listen like the way I had listened when I was “Called Back Home to My ‘Self’.”
Thank You again for this article, and in hopes it brings others who study plants and herbs and flowers back to the land lived on -- for it doesn't matter where you live, you need not be planted in an exotic land or pure wilderness. For:
"The love of your own land is a place where Spirit remains with many Mysteries awaiting to be unveiled. Step outside. Breathe in the Air of the Great Spirit. Let the Flow of Life flood through your very Veins. Ground and Center your Self -- and become Aware of what it is yet to show you."
