“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”—Nikola Tesla
Now more than ever before, we are understanding the truth of this statement. Our frequency and vibration create our health and well-being or lack of it.
Everything is interconnected, like the thoughts we think, the foods we eat, and so on. Have you heard the term, “Eat high-vibrational foods”? What this means is to eat organic, nourishing foods that help raise your vibration and can help improve your overall health and well-being.
Wild or organic herbs are definitely “high-vibe foods.” Not only are these herbs off the rails in vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, free radical scavengers, and antioxidants, they are living beings with high-energy vibes that they freely share with us all of the time. Taking these simple yet profound herbs into our bodies daily is one of the easiest ways to help raise our vibration physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Herbalists have always taught their students that when they go out into nature to collect their medicines, they should do so with good thoughts and good intentions—thoughts of gratitude, knowing that the plants want to help heal and keep us healthy (ask and it is given). Approach the plants with the same respect that you would any other living being, honoring and appreciating their gifts.
Drinking high-quality herbal teas is one of the simplest and time-honored ways to take these healing, high-vibrational plants into our bodies. Traditional dosage for maintaining health using herbs is to drink a quart of tea a day. Those quart-size sports pitchers many of us carry are the perfect way to get that daily dosage. Make your teas in a soup pot, which makes about 1 to 1 ½ gallons at a time. Once made, store in the refrigerator, and each morning, fill your sports pitcher and sip your tea throughout your day. You only need to make your tea once a week. It is that simple!
Fear is a very low vibration that depletes our energy and can create physical, emotional, mental and spiritual illness. Drinking high-vibe herbal teas is a great way to get yourself empowered and move out of fear and back into the vibration of love and gratitude. There is a planet full of amazing healing plants to choose from. If you are new to this, or not sure where to begin, there are lots of great herb shops sprouting up all over the country where you can go to learn more.
Let’s take a closer look at a few herbs and what they can do for our emotional or spiritual health, specifically, in addition to all they can do for our physical health.
If you are feeling unsettled or uneasy, try drinking a cup of rosemary tea to raise your feelings of love and mental clarity. You could also hang a sprig of it outside your front door so everyone coming into your sacred space is full of love.
If you have seen calendula flowers, you know they bring a smile to your face—such a beautiful plant. It has been known to create relaxation (and might repair your aura). Put this in your medicine pouch!
Dandelion has been found in every soil condition and every part of the planet. It is completely adaptable to all climates. This would be a good herb to include when you are feeling weak and you need to adapt to changes.
If you are trying to protect yourself from any negativity or bad juju, put a plant of nettle at your front door or in your medicine pouch. It could protect you from any negativity trying to creep into your life.
Chamomile is like having a friend with you at all times. This is the herb for money, healing and, most importantly, friendship. Sip a cup of chamomile tea and see how you feel—maybe a bit more receptive? Maybe that friendship that needs to be mended will magically heal.
Feeling anxious? Lemongrass has been used for treating anxiety, depression and just low-vibe feelings for decades. Cook with it, defuse in your favorite essential oil diffuser, or add a bit of dried herb to your favorite tea blend.
You might ask what is a medicine pouch? It is a simple but very effective way for these herbs to assist us. Ready-made bags are available or you can make one specifically for you. Pick a color of fabric that resonates with you. Lay the piece of fabric out and put your selected herbs in the center. Bring up the ends to meet and tie them with a piece of ribbon. Ta-da! You can carry this in your purse, hang it in your car, place around your home—anywhere you need the vibe of these plants.
By raising our vibrations individually, we will raise the vibration collectively far and wide. Let these herbs help you … physically, mentally, emotionally and vibrationally!
