A Message from Ficus Benjamina
May 12, 2010
There have been some excellent posts in the blogosphere recently about our best teachers. One was
Who Are Your Teachers? from Robin Easton’s Naked in Eden blog and another today from Christa in New York, called Step 132: Ditch What’s Dead
Of course as an animal and nature communicator I have about 20 articles floating around the World Wide Web about my lessons from various non human sources but since Crista wrote today about a lesson from a plant I have been moved to share one of my very first POW moments from my dear plant Ficus Benjamina.
I forgive you.
That’s what she said.
“I forgive you.”
And I didn’t deserve it
I’d starved her nearly to death.
Guilt ridden I took her to the kitchen to nurse her back to health
but still was unable to give proper treatment.
A little water, a Reiki jolt
but not enough.
Days went by.
Finally today I was able to give a full Reiki treatment and found once I started I could not stop. I could not take my hands away from the pot. Rooted in all directions, hands like glue stuck there, without intending it I gave the best anyone has ever got from me, and got back the best I have ever been given.
So Simple for Ficus to give,
Even though she nearly died before I could accept her gift.
I wish to be more like Ficus.
I have learned now to root myself in all dimensions and be loved.
Now may I root myself in all dimensions and love.
Thank you Ficus.
