If venturing into the forest or any wild space for healing, try doing so without any expectation of it. This allows the mind, heart and spirit greater opportunity to be receptive to the healing needed, rather than the healing wanted or expected. Each encounter and experience then takes place at its most honest, earnest and genuine occurance- without personal will or want applied.
It is too easy to misunderstand or confuse a happening or healing experienced when our analysis stems from the application of personal desire. Meaning being assigned to experiences not intended for it, and missing those that are, blinded to them by our egocentric wants and expectations. Your open mind, heart, and spirit are all that are needed for healing spirit to diagnose and treat accordingly, therein lies the medicine and the true essence of the Medicine Walk.
