"To hear the Spirits you have to be pure. To be pure you must love your self."
---Grandpa Tom Harris, Sto:lo, as told to Jacob and the Dreamers Circle on Seabird Island, BC, Canada.

"Every tree, every plant, has a spirit. People say that a plant has no mind. I tell them that a plant is alive and conscious.  ... there is a spirit in it that is conscious, that sees everything, which is the soul of the plant, its essence, what makes it alive."
---Pablo Cesar Amaringo, Painter, Peru.


"...Nature as a whole is capable of communicating, which contradicts the founding principle of this molecular biology that is current orthodoxy."
---Jeremy Narby, The Cosmic Spirit.
"They are beings, which have their own form or they can be like human beings with faces and bodies. When the spirit accepts the person, and the person has the will, the spirit grants them energy. The path to knowledge opens, and the healing takes place."
---Guillermo Arevalo, Shipibo-Conibo, Curandero, Peru.
"Each curandero, healer, shaman has a special plant with which they work. This plant is deep inside the heart of that healer, it speaks with them from the heart. This plant has the power to heal because this healer has opened to it so much that it has become them. The plant and the healer work as one. We can establish a relation with plants and the beings or spirits that live in them. We open to the information they have for us, opening to the transformation taking place inside them as a refletion of the transformation taking place in the universe."
---Arbolita Pashak, Curandera, Chiapas, Mexico. 
"We are not talking about passive agents of transformation, we are talking about an intelligence, a consciousness, an alive and other mind, a spirit ...Nature is alive and is talking to us. This is not a metaphor.  ...It is one thing when you become interested in the plants and it is another thing when the plants are interested in you."
---Terrence McKenna, Anthropologist.
"How wonderful it would be if one could only be worthy of hearing the song of the grass. Each blade of grass sings out to God without any ulterior motive and without expecting any reward. It is most wonderful to hear its song and worship God in its midst."
---Rabbi Nachman from Bratzlav.
"Even a rock is in some way alive, ...for life and intelligence are present not only in all of matter, but in 'energy,' 'space,' 'time,' the fabric of the entire universe."
---Michael Talbot, The Holographic Universe.
"As human beings, we need to know where we came from, who we are, and where we are going. For centuries, Westerners have been spiritual deaf-mutes who have forgotten how to communicate with Nature."
---Eduardo Caldero'n Palomino, Curandero, Peru.

"The spirits of plants move about the world talking with one another, and if you (meditate) sincerely with them they teach this art. For a curandero, plants sustain life....plants, with their roots in the soil and their branches spreading to the sky, act as bridges between the worlds."
----Juan Flores Salazar, Curandero, Robert Tindall, The Jaguar That Roams The Mind.

"Should  time or nature, or necessity or chance, or the elements be considered the cause?"

----Svetasvatra Upanishad 1.2, Rig Veda.

What Is 5 Element - Plant Spirit Shamanic Healing:
The diagnostic componment is based on the ancient shamanic understanding that everything and everyone on earth or within the universe is related to the five elements of water, fire, earth, air/minerals/'the shining and 'all the green' that grows on the earth. If the bio-electric energetic pathways of the physical system are unable to function and regulate the vital life energy properly, pathogenic influences can manifest signs of illness. When any part of the body is traumatized through injury or illness, a restriction of the life force has occured. 
Our vitality of spirit is influenced by emotions such as shock, fear, anger, joy, pensivesness, worry and sorrow. Since emotions are closely related to the energetics and functions of the physical system any prolonged excessive emotional trauma is considered an internal cause of illness. The unrestricted flow of bio-electrical energy brings body, mind/emotions and spirit into balance.
Unlike herbalism, which uses the chemical properties of a plant to heal the physical body, 5 Element - Plant Spirit Shamanic Healing requires no needles or pressure for the plant spirits bestow their grace. The origin of illness is addressed rather than the disease itself.  For all practical purposes, illness takes root in the mind or spirit anyway.
In this shamanic Medicine Way plant spirits, as specifically directed by the practitioner, perform psychic accupuncture so to speak, stimulating the meridians/nadis so energetic blocks can be released. The elemental spirits of plants that are able to communicate their specific healing energy, restore the clients energetic system. These helpful effects remain long after each healing session.
Until a few generations ago, shamanic Medicine Way of Nature healers of all ancestral peoples gained knowledge about the healing qualities of plants by journeying deep in dream visions through personal questing. They understood the body of the plant helps but it is not the only part that heals. They learned through direct communication from the plants that the main healing factor is the spirit or sacred properties of the plant. 
This shamanic Medicine Way is a journey of spiritual self discovery that demands dedication, patience and reverence for the rooted people. Sadly, in our technology driven world, this ancient healing Medicine Way of Nature has almost completely faded into obscurity. For the most part, those who heal with plants today are compassionate herbalists or botonists who have wonderful pharmaceutical memorization skills but no direct personal visionary communication relationships with the spirits of plants.
Fortunately, plant spirits have continued to communicate their healing way to respectful humans regardless of cultural ancestry.
In 5 Element - Plant Spirit Shamanic Healing the release of pathological accumulated residues or blocked energy patterns is facilitated at the mental/emotional and spiritual level, where illness originates. Sessions are a combination of qaulitative intervention with specific plant spirit energies and intuitive transformational counseling.
This Medicine Way of Nature is a powerful developmental process that follows the phases of the natural world. You cannot go from winter to autumn in one season.
Respectful humility in meditational shamanic dreamtime practice in the forest is required to develop relationships with the spirits of local plants. Plant allies may communicate specific healing energy which they can clearly and generously offer for the well-being of the people.
