You Are the Medicine

I love this passage from Maria Sabina, a Mexican healer and poet:

Heal yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon.

With the sound of the river and the waterfall. 

With the swaying of the sea and the fluttering of birds.

Heal yourself with mint, neem and eucalyptus.

Sweeten with lavender, rosemary and chamomile.

Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a hint of cinnamon.

Put love in tea instead of sugar and drink it looking at the stars.

Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain.

Stand strong with your bare feet on the ground and with everything that comes from it.

Be smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with your forehead.

Jump, dance, sing, so that you live happier.

Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember – 

you are the medicine.

– Maria Sabina
