Blessings & LOVE from the beautiful land of Canada!
I must confess, it was terrifying at first to face 500 people and speak. This was the biggest crowd I'd addressed so far—at Spirit Plant Medicine Conference in Vancouver. I was deeply honored to have received a grant from the Cosmic Sister organization to present there, and I wanted to do my best. I felt butterflies in my tummy for days!
I knew... I would have to receive support from beyond little me...
I prayed daily—asking Creator, the plant spirits, ancestors, spiritual allies, and our Bwiti community in Africa for help.
Would I be able to be a conduit for a clear message? Some small part of me wondered if I would get up there and freeze. There was only one way to find out!
As I looked out into the packed audience, my pounding heart was inspired by looking into the faces of my husband, my family, our beloved community from the Ibogasoul plant medicine healing retreat center, our good friend Trevor Millar Chair of MAPS Canada, Zoe Helene founder of Cosmic Sister and her partner Chris Kilham of Medicine Hunter, the whole radiant tribe from the Cosmic Sister organization, and beautiful new friends in Canada.
Our Bwiti community in Africa had offered to create a ceremony at the exact moment I spoke, on the other side of the world to help support people learning about iboga & the Bwiti. I felt such gratitude for their work and energetic support.
Cheers to the creative and sometimes terrifying journey of service!
We can all face our fears and grow through them... especially when we ask for a little help from our friends—and divine allies.
& help to support the fine work of the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference!
