Subject: Healing Wise
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I just began reading your book "Healing Wise" and it's spoken to me like no other. It's opened my eyes and I now see so much clearer. When you explain about the Heroic way you're describing me...always trying to seek the "perfect" diet/herb...always wondering what I did to make myself sick...always thinking "if only" I'd feel better...do better...be better.
When you speak of the Wise Woman you speak to my heart...what I've somehow always known deep down. Since a child I've always been so in tune with our Mother. I've always loved the earth and being bare foot in my garden. I've always talked with my flowers, my vegetables and herbs, thanking them for providing for me. I've always loved working with the land and found a special satisfaction in reaping her bounty. I've always felt a kinship with the native people and their ways but didn't think I was "good enough" or "pure blooded" enough to be a part of them...you've helped me see that I am. For that I am eternally grateful.
Peace, Justine [;)] have fun, live life, love fully!
