Herbs, Foods and Thoughts that Heal
“We all walk in mysteries. We do not know what is stirring in the atmosphere that surrounds us, nor how it is connected with our own spirit. So much is certain-that at times we can put out the feelers of our soul beyond its bodily limits; and a presentiment, and actual insight…is accorded to it.” – Goethe
Practice # 1: Healing with Thought.
Say the phrase: “Everything I Need Comes To Me” while looking in the mirror. This simple yet powerful affirmation is a way center yourself and prepare to receive. Life begins to mirror your heart and soul.
“The mirror itself changes, it’s very substance is altered by the process of you becoming yourself. Its capacity for undistorted reflection begins to improve.” – Stephen Buhner
Renowned herbalist and healer Hanna Kroeger instructed her students to look in a mirror and ask the question: “What do I need to (heal, get a better job, make a difference in the world…)? Fill in the blank as necessary, repeat it daily and let go of it. The answer will come.
Practice # 2: Healing with Food.
Treat your kitchen like a biochemistry research lab. Stock your kitchen with fresh and real foods. Dump everything packaged and “refined”. Go with the basics and begin to build a repertoire of healthy choices that work for you! This is where the joy of experimenting comes in. Everyone must become his or her own expert to win great health. There is plenty of good advice out there – self-discovery is your biggest advantage for gaining healthy lasting traction.
Practice # 3: Healing with Herbs.
Pay attention to how you feel and handle small imbalances with herbs. You will become adept and knowing when to seek additional care.
