Ancestral Medicine Women

Whether you’re asking a tree, your whole collective garden or the elementals around you… it does not matter, if the message you get back from your question is unlike anything you normally think like, you’ll know it’s not your own inner voice, it’s nature. Nature is straight talking.

An example:

You’re working in your garden and you can feel something is missing and you ask, “what is missing?’  Then whammo, the word “fire” comes to you. And you think why does the garden want me to burn it, that’s odd. So you can see here, it’s not you, you associate fire with harm to the garden, you don’t want to harm your garden… but the garden sees fire as movement, transformation, elemental magic. Maybe it’s feeling stagnant, maybe there is a virus that needs to be burnt out of the vegetation, maybe the nutrients in the vegetation just need to be cycled back into the earth quickly, maybe the elementals in the air need that change. You can ask more, or just feel your way into burning the fire where you are guided, just on one garden bed, on top of the compost pile, under a tree. Feel where you’re guided. Do it, don’t judge it or think, “just do it.”
Now that most people have got bored and didn’t read down this far, we can share the profound stuff, it’s safe down here.


“You are the garden.”


Whether your garden is one plant in your apartment or a lovely cottage garden that you’ve worked at for years, it is a reflection your inner universe. You might be a wild-person, inclined to be free, so your garden runs. You might be the quiet-orderly-type and your garden is ordered,when you have the time to tend it. In this way, we cultivate what we need inside… when we can.

“You are the garden, express yourself in it and you’ll see the majesty in who you really are.”


All of our clients are reminded of their majesty, their gifts and these are often found in funny places. It is the special path of healing.

Share us, like us, we like you, how could we not? We see your majesty, coming to earth now, in this time of change and turmoil. You had a vision and hope! Remember it, and express it in whatever you cultivate!
