Our modern day definition for medicine is very different than the Native American definition of medicine. In native culture, all people carry their own special medicines. Just like each plant, animal and mineral, each person has gifts from spirit we bring here to share. The more connected we are to our Self, through living a life of loving-kindness, truth and integrity, the greater our medicine or “spiritual power”.
My intention for Ambrosia is to create a portal of juicy offerings or medicines that nourish, soothe and support each of us in accessing our inherent wholeness. Life is delicious, juicy and sacred. The nectar of life is all around us, waiting for us to awaken to its beauty and power. It’s available in every breath we take. Just like the infamous saying, “it’s the simple things in life that matter." This is true, but very often we are blind to these simple things because we have closed down our senses and shut out life. We have to feel… and continue to open more and more to ourselves to access greater truth. As we grow in life, we experience pain and suffering and often don’t know how to process these experiences and as a result create walls instead of bridges. Ideas and beliefs can either free us or box us into very small living spaces. Life requires us to walk through each experience and the full range of emotions in order to continue to live.
It’s essential that we reconnect to the sacredness of our lives. My mission is to provide you with the medicines I’ve been gifted and consciously cultivating for the last 12 years. My hope is that it’s just the medicine you need to support you in fully Living Your Life.
