‘May the medicine within Rise. Awaken from her dormant sleep. And heal you.”

Hello my magical friend, my gentle focus at the moment is loyally observing my interaction with two words – I Am.

I Am are strong convincing words. They are active words.

Your body obeys them.  Your mind believes them. The universe hears them.

I Am are words of medicine (if you want them to be) for what follows them triggers a ripple effect, through your body and out into the many layers of your life.

Following is an accidental healing ritual that was kindly passed onto me via my favourite wise old tree last month. Bless you, oh, wise ancient one. My body obviously needed to hear it.

The essence can be expressed as a mantra. “I am medicine, for I am breath, I am light and I am energy.”

These words, when spoken, are a delicious therapeutic tonic. Stirring dormant forces within.  Reminding, both you and I, of the many layers of medicine that live within us.  Always.

May the medicine within Rise my friend.  Awaken from her dormant sleep.  And heal you.

I Am Medicine Ritual:    

click here for audio recording.

I inhale slowly.

I exhale even slower.

I am medicine for I am a divine vessel of healing breath, energy and light.

I awaken the medicine in me now.

Inhale. Exhale.

I am medicine for I am a healing breath.

I inhale a healing breath to nourish and comfort my body.

I exhale a healing breath to release all tension and tightness.

I relax deeper into my body with each healing breath.

Inhale. Exhale.

I am medicine for I am energy.

With soft focus I move energy through me.

Sending her down from the head, through the body and into the legs and feet.

I rest my energy here for moment – before gently moving her back up through my body.

My energy cleanses and clears as she flows smoothly through me.

Inhale. Exhale.

I am medicine for I am light.

I awaken the light within me.

On the inhale my light brightens.

On the exhale my light expands.

I am filled with healing light.

Inhale. Exhale.

I am medicine. Always.

I inhale all that I need now.

I exhale all that I no longer need.

I am safe, supported and loved.

I am whole, healed and complete.

And so it is.



Ritual variations:


Listen to the audio.

Say out aloud as a declaration to your true self and the universe.

Read with one hand on your belly and the other on your heart.  This is really, really helpful for feeling into which of the three medicines healing breath, energy or light need more of your focus and attention.

The more time you spend with your inner medicine, the stronger and clearer they will become.


30 second mini version:

If you’re busy here’s a shortened version, that’s easy to remember.

I am a healing breath.  I am moving a healing breath through my whole body now.

I am energy. I am moving energy through my whole body now.

I am light. I am shining light through my whole body now.
