Whether you’re conscious of it or not, you’re in a deep and powerful relationship with the plant spirits all right now. With every breath you take you are receiving an inhalation of green blessings- and with your exhalation you offer your own gift of vital force to our green allies.
The breath is the most powerful way to enter into connection with the plants. It’s already happening, and it ties us human folk to the plant spirits in an essential way. What we inhale is the exhalation of the plants, and what we exhale is the inhalation of the plants. This cycle is one of sacred reciprocity whereby we offer of ourselves to the plants so that they can do what they do and offer of themselves to us, and so on and so forth from first breath to last.
Because of this powerful breath connection, the body, mind, and heart are eager to use the breath as a path into deeper spiritual work with the plant spirits all. In this simple practice, we ride the breath into connection and let the plant lead from there.
To breathe with the plants…
Continue this breathing of offering and receiving for as long as you like. Don’t force or manipulate the breath at all. Rather, let it be how it is for you and just add the intention.
You may find that the breath carries you into a journey with the plant spirit where communication, inspiration, or healing occurs. You may find that you feel a closeness and rapport with the plant. You may find that this time is simply relaxing and connecting. With practice, the breath becomes a gateway by which we enter into the mysteries of the green realm.
