My own Hawaiian Woodrose Friend!

Image
With regards to my last post, here is a picture of the Hawaiian Woodrose Spirit with whom I am beginning a friendship. She appears to be enjoying the warm, humid days with sunshine, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do when the temperature starts dropping...!
I love her heart-shaped leaves. They are so soft and malleable that I find great healing in sitting with Her after my own heart is a bit too exhausted from working in the mental health field each day. 
I haven't seen any Katydids lately, but I'm sure they are there. 
Stay tuned for further lessons, as we work together for Healing!

Plant Spirit Shamanism: Hawaiian Woodrose

It's been two months since I've updated this blog. Normally, I'd feel a bit guilty about that, but during those months, I have gone through some pretty profound self-healing.

I've gone through one of the many Long, Dark Nights of the Soul.

I've questioned my senses, forgotten and re-learned my experiences, taken a leap of Faith, focused on mixing my Spirituality with my Mundane job (until they are completely intertwined!), increased my awareness, set up strong Boundaries (so that I am able to ground my energy better), and really learned to Trust My Instincts!

Now that I'm starting to re-emerge, I feel as though I am ready to put more work into my Spiritual Relationships. Talking to different spirits in my head is all well and good, but they like a visit every now and again, too!

I am also trying very hard to reduce my anxiety about explaining to others, in a logical way, about the imagery and symbols during appointments. I need to focus more on the lesson, and…
