KAMBO

Kambo is a Giant Leaf frog found in the Amazon. Its “medicine” has a variety of applications but one of the major reasons for its use is the effect it has on the brain and the psyche as a psychedelic substance. It is powerful “medicine” and you can find lots of information on the internet about it.

The other day I was inspired to write a poem (see below) about it because it seems like presently many people feel the need to experience psychoactive substances used by traditional tribes and healers. There is a tendency to believe that these experiences bring a sense of accomplishment, making a person a “better” person, “better” than others. I have reflected upon this phenomena in the context of our ability to live life and decided to share my inspiration with you as food for thought. Enjoy.

KAMBO – Frog Medicine: Illusion or Reality

Still flying high
Soaring high in the sky

Looking at life in a different light
Experiencing all there is from new heights

All the induced reflections
Causing different perceptions

Spirit has so many different forms
It may come and go like a storm

Has it really changed the way things are
Or is it just an illusion from afar

Are you really a different person now
Is different better – if yes how

Life’s challenges are still the same
So are responsibilities – what a shame

The real test is living how
With spirit present in every moment now

Taking responsibility for who we truly are
Leaving behind our desires and ego so far

In service to our soul’s purpose
Is our life’s journey

HOPE

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tunes without the words and never stops at all”. Emily Dickinson

Hope is an essential element in any form of healing. Dr. Edward Bach said to never take away from anyone the hope for healing. I am hoping, wishing and praying that this year more and more people will re-connect to nature, so that Mother Earth will receive the much needed support for her healing. Everyone of us can make a difference. Let’s shift our focus to things that really matter and what life is truly about.

Green Blessings,
Gudrun

Happy New Year to All!

AlbertEinsteinAlbert Einstein said: “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

During this time of reflection and good intentions you might want to keep this in mind – for yourself and others.

Love, peace, health and happiness for 2015.

Green Blessings from under a blanket of snow,
Gudrun
