It’s time for me to offer my first free Webinar journeying with the Spirit of Plants and the first Plant Spirit that has stepped forward is Cannabis. The divine Avalon Darnesh and I will next Wednesday night be offering a healing journey with the spirit of Cannabis. With the intention of healing our relationship as individuals and as a culture with this incredible medicinal plant.
To be perfectly honest with you when she came to me I was scared. I wasn’t sure I wanted to be associated with her, The stigma, the persecution, the mental illness, addiction stories, all the negative things I knew about this plant came rushing to the surface. Cannabis or sometimes known as Marujuana (A conveinent term created by big Pharma to demonise the plant and monopolise its healing properties) has a long and complicated history and this is exactly why doing this webinar and this healing is so important.
It took quiet a lot of work on my behalf to remove the story surrounding her before I could find her in her purest form as a beautiful and powerful plant gifted to us by Mother Earth herself.
I have never been drawn to use Cannabis myself (besides trialing as a teenager) but she has played a very big story in my life by association with the people I love. I think this is perhaps why she has chosen to work with me. I am not trying to justify anything about this plant for myself, I am simply wanting to be a vessel for her message and her healings gifts. I wish to help all those that need and seek her medicine to be able to do so in a way that is sacred and beneficial on all levels for both themselves and Cannabis as a plant.
My journey with Cannabis the plant spirit started by doing some readings Avalons tribe and for clients who wanted to connect more deeply and spiritually with a plant they were already connected with physically. These readings were not normal readings. The spirit of cannabis had a lot to say to me and I had to return to journey with her Shamanically over and over again.
Once I truly met Cannabis. I was in love.
Cannabis let me know it was time that we healed our relationship with her and that she has many gifts to offer us at this time on the planet, both for our physical and spiritual well being.
Some of her gifts are;
- Bending and blending of individual egos for a common purpose
- Helps to heal psychological vision distortion (this is why she is psycho active drug)
- Helps develop the strength of love, especially when strength and love are seen as polarities.
- The ability to maintain multi-faceted consciousness.
- Healing of fear of social commitment in family and community.
- Helps to bring repressed emotions to the surface to clear, especially feelings of anger and fear created by feelings of powerlessness and emotional supression.
- Receptivity to human love, maternal nurturing, the ability to be mother and be mothered
As you can see Cannabis is a plant of the heart, when I told her I was ready to serve and the idea of doing a webinar with Avalon had come to fruition I asked the Spirit of Cannabis.
What do you want me to speak on your behalf? Her reply is below.
“I want you to teach them how to use my gifts by choosing to have a conscious relationship with me. A conscious relationship with me is reciprocity, its awareness and its choosing to journey with my medicine, not escape with my gifts.
I enhance what you already are and you are here to offer more to this world. It is when we come together as two fully functioning wholes that a new and deeper medicine can be born.”
Its now been nearly three months since I began my Plant spirit journey with Cannabis, my personal healing has been deep the revelations have been transformational. She is not a plant to be missed and It is time for me to share her with you. So with all that said I would love for you to join both myself and Avalon Darnesh for our free webinar ‘Healing your relationship with Cannabis.”
May she reach all of whom she seeks.
This webinar is for you if;
- If you desire to come into right relationship with this plant
- If you wish to heal past negative associations with this plant
- If you are a loved one of someone who uses this plant.
- If you work professionally with addictions and this plant
- If you are interested in deepening your understanding of plant spirit medicine.
Blessings and love Amanda

The muffled sounds of suppressed weeping wash over me as I enter the funeral hall. Moon white Lilly Flower arrangements drape over the dark wooden pews, their scent of innocence and purity fill me with an unexpected sense of peace. I look to the awaiting coffin at the end of the hall, I cannot see a picture on top of the coffin so I anxiously look around trying to identify the people in the room. Why am I here? Whose funeral is this?
A woman wails loudly in her grief, her pain vibrates through my body, I quickly lower my eyes no longer wanting to risk making eye contact with anyone in the grieving procession. I begin to walk slowly past what feels like endless rows of people making my way towards the coffin at the other end of the room. As I reach the end of the aisle I briefly look over at a young couple sitting in the front row huddled closely together seeking refuge within each other’s arms, their faces are down, foreheads touching, their hands anxiously clinging to each other in their laps.
I draw my eyes away from their intimate moment and take two steps up to the open casket before me. The mahogany coffin is covered in an array of flowers and candles and I smile despite myself when I notice the coffin is lined in a deep red velvet, interesting choice for funeral colours. I lean over the coffin in the hope of finally laying my eyes upon the person I am here to say goodbye to. I’m shocked to find the coffin is empty. My eyes search the insides of the coffin frantically trying to make sense of my experience. It is then that I notice that no the casket is not quite empty. A delicately embellished antique hand held mirror lays within the folds of velvet. Unconsciously I pick it up, bringing the mirror up to my face, my reflection glares straight back at me. In my confusion my instinctual senses take over and it is now that I notice the music playing in the background. It’s my wedding song. The song I have always told my loved ones I want played at my own funeral. A knowingness begins to niggle within me. I slowly turn around, as I stand at the coffin I look out onto the people who fill the hall. From where I stand I notice that the young couple I saw earlier is my son, my much older son, the woman who now has her head gently nuzzled on his chest, I have never met, yet she weeps for me. I then look out and see my best friends, my parents, how could my parents be here? I see my aunties and uncles, even my grandparents are in the room whom I know have long since passed. I see old school teachers, work colleagues and neighbours. Every person I have ever known sits in the long wooden hall before me. I’m overwhelmed with joy at seeing all of their faces and at the same time pain and sadness at witnessing their grief. I scan the front row and now I see my daughter, my daughter and her whole family, I see my grandchildren with her, nuzzled under their fathers arms their young eyes heavy and red from crying. I have never met these children, Yet my heart compels my body forward with the desire to be with them. I physically try to step forward to comfort them but my legs cannot move.
No one seems to have noticed me standing in front of them. They are deeply lost in their own memories of me, and the consuming grief of their hearts to notice.
The music stops and the funeral director begins in her loud musical voice. “ Today we are here to celebrate the life of an incredible woman. A woman who stood for …… .”
I wake with a start. The residue of the dream is still heavy around me.
A woman who stood for what?
What will be said about me when I die? And perhaps more importantly What do I want to be said about me when I die?
Today, for many of us we are blessed to live in a time where we have the ability and opportunity to search out and live what we feel is our life’s purpose. We usually begin this quest for purpose by looking externality to find what we think that purpose may be. We look for the right label, degree or industry, in the hope that when we find something that feels right everything else in our lives will fall into place. Perhaps we have even claimed the title of healer, writer, actor or entrepreneur, and yet sometimes we still feel that something is missing. These titles may be what we do but they are not who we are. Plant spirits have taught me that we ourselves are our purpose, and that knowing yourself and being who it is that you truly are, is your only task.
This may sound simple but I’m sure most people who have begun this quest will agree the practice of being who we are, is far from simple.
Who we are is often buried behind suppressed trauma and pain not only our own but the pain past down by genetics, ancestral lines and cultural stories. Being who we are is sabotaged or masked by cultural expectations, people pleasing, misperceptions or even the expectations of following other peoples dreams. When women and men come to me in the search of their purpose I tell every single one of them that they are a healer. Some people look at me confused this is when I tell them
“ I believe you are a healer because we are all healers, and I believe this because every single plant spirit I work with has confirmed with me this truth.”
We are not healers because we practice reiki or massage. We are not healers because we studied psychology or physiotherapy or even because we are herbalists or doctors. We are healers because when we live according to our true nature and when we live by our personal truth we heal others simply by being who we are. We are all here to help heal each other. Why else would we be here together?
A big part of the journey to knowing yourself and being who you truly are is knowing what it is that you stand for.
So today I ask you, What will be said about you at your funeral procession? How did you heal others simply by being who you are?
At your death what do you imagine people will say that you stood for?
What do you think will have made you matter to them?
What do you want to hear them saying that you stood for? (What you think they will say and what you want them to say could currently be very different things)
What are you doing in your life to make the reality of this possible?
Where are you not behaving in a way that is aligned with how you want to be remembered?
This week I had the honour of journeying with the Spirit of Clary Sage for one of my plant Spirit reading clients. Each Plant Spirit has a unique type of medicine that they offer out to the world. When I retrieve a Plant Spirit Ally for someone the Plant that presents itself is always a plant that has similar medicine to the person that are coming to help. (whether or not that person is aware of this medicine or not.) Once I retrieve the universal medicine of the plant I then channel the particular gifts the Plant spirit had for the individual. Its a beauty-full and deep process. Here I have included my journey with the Spirit of Clary Sage and the universal medicine she brings to us all. If she speaks to you. Call her into your life and start to get to know each other.
I drifted on small wooden boat on a vast body of water, it could be the ocean or it could be a lake stretching as far as the eye can see. I am alone and not alone at the same time. All around me I feel a strong presence of something greater than anything I can put into words. Next to me on my seat lay 3 stems of clary sage. Her perfect purple flower vibrant against the green of her stem and the blue body of water that holds my driftwood grey boat. Her scent reaches me and I bring her closer to my nose, inhaling her unique sweet fragrance. Immediately I am transported to somewhere else, another time and another place. Before my eyes have time to adjust and take in my surroundings, she takes me of again, and again and again. Until I am nearly dizzy with the travel. Finally I end up back in my boat drifting gently on the water. This time the boat has another seat, in front on me there sits the spirit of Clary sage. I do not see her as any particular form just as pulsing light. When I finally give up trying to see her as something I understand, I hear in my mind her voice “The paths can be far and they can be wide but they always come from and return to the same place.”
The medicine of the Spirit of Clary Sage.
Clary sage is a plant that is here to help us to do a particular kind of healing. She is able to assist us with the fears we have of being engulfed by the unexpressed tears of the feminine, simply by being a human that is alive on this planet at this time our mental, spiritual and physical bodies are aware of the great injustices that have been shown towards the feminine over the thousands of years of patriarchal dominance. The fear of truly feeling into these injustices stops many of us stepping onto the true path of healing and embracing the gifts of the feminine.
Clary sage is a powerful plant ally for those of us who are doing work where we are required to be leaders during times of crisis. Clary sage has the ability to give aid and strength when we are discouraged by perceived failures.
Clary sage is also a great healer for those of us who are hard on ourselves and battle with the crippling nature of self-judgement and blame.
Clary sage teaches us to accept that our core feelings and emotions are valid. This in particular is why she is often prescribed as an aid for women with menstrual cycle and PMS dis-ease.
The spirit of Clary sage helps us to remember our spiritual selves. She shows us how to sink into a state of spiritual harmony and a feelings of wholeness about our lives.
