Asking the Plants for Permission

Plants, like other living creatures, have a spirit, emotions, and feelings that affect their physical and spiritual well being. Before taking part of a plant, or a sapling, the Shaman asks for permission and tells the plant how he is going to use what he takes. If he doesn’t do this, the mother plant will die. The Shaman goes through a prayer ritual in order to communicate with the plant. Once he gets the plant’s permission, he also receives the plant’s energy and curative properties.
