MY INSPIRATION

My grandmother, Evangeline, was born in 1906, in Nova Scotia, Canada.  She was the youngest of 14.  A healer, caring for the ill and elder in her community.  I lived with her most of my childhood, and learned many of the old ways from her...  Her mother, Mary Rubin, was born in 1860, in Canada.  She was a midwife and an herbalist.  My gram told me that she learned the herbs from the Native Americans.  Mary never learned how to read or write, so her Wisdom was never recorded.  But, "Doctors used to say... When you are ready to give birth, you want her, not me, to be there..."  My gram would say, "Out of all of my people, you remind me most of my mother."

Earth Wisdom & a shamanic journey

 

I traveled to the upper world...  And saw my great grandmother, standing with herbs in her hand.  She wanted me to begin working with the herbs in my healing. and would guide me on my journey.  I asked her if there was anything else I could do.  She messaged back, "preserve the bee."

Months later, I began my herbal apprenticeship.  Soon, after completing it, I experienced a very intense two week period of receiving direct transmission: herbal combinations for healing in these modern times; the awareness of an herbal workshop series to help people reconnect with nature's medicine; and the beginning of my walk with the honey bee.
