Using nature is not only one of the best ways to heal your body but it also holds true in keeping your mind balanced as well.
When was the last time you walked through your garden, or a community flower park? Do you remember certain aromas that seemed to give you the feeling of peace, something that gave you that overwhelming feeling of calmness that seems to put your mind at ease? I am going to tell you something many people do not usually think about when it comes down to fully using nature to heal yourself and harness the full potential that you may be missing. The key phrase here is called using the 'Form of simpling'.
What is the 'Form of Simpling' you ask? It is what it already says! It is using the plants and natural resources that are already within your natural geographic location, were you are living of course! It is how to keep your health and healing within what your body and mind has evolved to use already. Your body and mind are already in tune and used to what is already in your environment! One does not have to look to the exotic resources in order to find a way to keep naturally healthy, and all you need to do is to remember to keep it simple. By using one to a few plants or other natural resources in your area, one can harness a plethora of healing capabilities you never knew existed, even within your own backyard.
Now another important key to remember is how to find those resources that are truly in tune with you mind and body. You can read a variety of books, watch natural healing shows on TV, research things online, but what many of these sources can and do often fail to mention is how to keep things simple and balanced to what your body is already used to using! Some will tell you that various plants, such those in the mint family, are great to help relax your mind and ease stress. Sure it can help some, but what if it is too powerful for you or there is really another source that is more effective? Think about it! And do not be afraid to experiment because I am trying to tell you it does take time, but you can find that resource, whether plant or plants, or essential oil that can be your 'Power' healer! Give it a shot and believe me, you will be very pleased. By finding your power healer, you are finding those special natural resources that are directly matched with your spiritual energy.
Your first steps should include keeping a journal on your mind healing experiences. If you have mild, moderate to high levels of pleasant experiences, write them down! Over time you will see there is a pattern to what natural methods work best in maintaining your mental health. Whether it is using essential oils, herbs other natural resources or a mixture of them, you will find your energy match! This is also called fine tuning your healing to your individual needs. Not every healing mix that helps one person will always help the next the same way. Keep your natural healing individualized, keep it simple and unique as to you are as a person on this earth! If you still question how to exactly do this, well then its time to find a professional that knows how to keep the 'Form of Simpling' and how to individualize your healing journey! Books, online resources, and TV shows are not always your best resources when finding your true healing balance, you need to find it within! Even if you may need some help in finding that inner balance, take the time to learn how to find it. Have fun and let nature show you the way!
