Spirit Plants (What is a Spirit Plant and How To Find Your Spirit Plant)

Because we live in a vibrational universe, you can find your vibrational equivalent in just about anything in existence. In the video that I did on spirit animals, I explained that you don’t
only have spirit animals; you also have spirit
minerals and spirit plants. These tend to be the
special ‘relationships’ that earth-based shamanism finds to be the most important for
a persons’ spiritual path. The reason is, is because they represent
three distinct elemental kingdoms. For that reason, having said all that, today we’re going to dive into
the concept of spirit plants. Spirit Plants You probably clicked on this episode imagining that I would talk about plants, where most people use
their medicinal properties to access spiritual dimensions. Things like Ayahuasca, things like peyote… Things like tobacco. Now while I will be touching a tiny bit
on these types of medicines, that’s not actually what
this episode about. To say that something is a spirit plant, doesn’t necessarily imply
that it is being used for spiritual journey work. If something is said to
be your spirit plant, it is your plant equivalent. It is you represented
in the plant kingdom. It’s a plant whose vibration
is the most identical to your own unique and authentic essence. The plant possesses traits, qualities that mirror your innate
inborn traits, qualities, needs, desires, purposes,
strengths and weaknesses etc. Very rarely, especially if there is a distinct split between a person’s physical and
non-physical embodiment, a person can have two
spirit equivalents in a category. Now I have to say this; Why? Because I actually have two spirit plants. The first is Datura Stramonium. The second is the red climbing rose. That being said, because somebody might
have two spirit plants or two spirit minerals or whatever, even what those spirit minerals are, does not actually mean that it’s
any more special than somebody else’s. Now I know that even saying that, it’s not gonna make sense
to the human mind. But that has to be said. For example, the fact that one person
has an oak tree for a spirit plant and another has celery for a spirit plant, doesn’t inherently mean
anything less special about the person whose
spirit plant is celery. But inherent in this example, you can already see where the shadow, relative to actually finding
your spirit plant, resides. There are obviously some spirit
plants you don’t want to have. And it’s not because of the plant itself. It’s actually because of your
ignorance about the plant itself and the stock you’ve put
in human value systems. Over the course of human history, just like minerals, just like animals, humans have had a
very special relationship with the plant kingdom. The vast majority of our actual medicines are derived from plants still to this day. Humans ascribe more value
to some plants than others. For example, we value things
like cannabis or roses, but not as much dyer’s
woad, weed or rye grass. This, on top of a seriously
limited knowledge of the sheer amount of different
plants there are on the planet, make it hard for people
to accurately identify their spirit plant. People also have totem plants. Now this totem plant is a friend, it’s a balancer, it’s a protector, it’s a guide. It’s that thing that assists them, rather than being their representative in the plant kingdom. Of all totems on the planet in every category you can have totems in, people seem to have the most plant totems. I have never met a person with just one. For example, my principal totem plant
is corkscrew willow. But I have several other, let’s call them, more minor totems: pennyroyal, pomegranate, chamomile, sumac, huckleberry, golden daylily, milkweed and fox tail grass. There is another plant that is of significance to all people: it is the shadow plant. This is not a shadow totem, but a shadow plant, yet again, makes it easier. So, what is your shadow plant? It is a plant who vibrates at the frequency of what
is the most denied, disallowed and rejected and
disowned within yourself. Right now, I’m very tempted
to make a joke and to tell you all that my shadow plant is cilantro ’cause I hate it. I actually like the
consciousness of cilantro but the physical taste of it could make me reject an entire plate of food. But it’s not. My shadow totem plant is bindweed. As I’ve said in previous episodes, in indigenous cultures, everything in existence is said
to possess a certain ‘medicine’. Now the reason they call it medicine is because something about it assists the greater universe or others. This medicine may or may not also extend to the physical
plane of existence. And this is something that we see intensely in the plant world. Why? Because willow for example, has a great many characteristics about it that apply to a more non-physical
plane of assistance. It’s medicine towards peace, towards relief, towards tranquility. However, the physical properties of willow is also used for pain relief. For example, aspirin is made from willow. But even plants that don’t posses what a scientist would consider a “healing” property, still possess a intensive medicine. One does not grind up
and eat beech trees. The frequency of beech trees teaches tolerance and non-reactivity to criticism. This is said to be its ‘medicine’. For this reason, beech and its medicine
is revered as sacred. If you suffer from narrow perspective, in terms of the greater universe at large, if you’re limited to
the physical dimension, you may benefit by sálvia medicine. However, if you are somebody who possesses this clairvoyance, shall we call it, you may be said to be
strong in sálvia medicine. Again, all plants have ‘medicine’. All plants have a spirit and that spirit is their
strongest medicine. Many plant spirits, like animal spirits and mineral spirits are teachers and healers and leaders. This medicine they possess can
include physical elements that even scientifically minded people already recognize as medicinal. When people, in the spiritual field, ingest psychoactive plants, what this is actually enabling them to do is to break beyond the confines
of physical perception. It is opening them to a plane
of existence where they can actually interact with the
spirit and consciousness of the specific plant that they
themselves have just ingested. This is why it is so common, once you’ve taken a psychedelic plant, to meet and be taught by, and even led through journeywork by the specific consciousness
of the very specific plant that you have taken. It’s not that only these plants have
medicine and consciousness, it’s not that only these
plants are teachers. What it is, that these specific plants are particularly concerned
with human consciousness. It is that their medicine, their life purpose on the planet of many, is specifically geared towards
human consciousness. They are teachers. Most of them are interested in teaching very specific things to people as well. But I need to say this, especially for spiritual people, because in this non-physical plane that many of these plants get you to, it is just as possible to talk
to the consciousness of a raspberry as it is to talk to the
consciousness of yagé. Let’s talk about the plant consciousness as an element in your life. The plant element of consciousness
carries the frequency of growth, need, desire, yearning, transformation, improvement, expansion and change, learning, attraction, healing, germination, nourishment, progression, evolution, new manifestation and harmonization. Many aspects of life test our growth, our
capacity to harmonize, our desires and needs
and our transformation. Your spirit plant can be
used in order to master this level of existence
and personal progression. OK, so yet again, like I’ve said
in the previous episodes, even though we are in
the practice of integration, that means, that eventually we want to master all medicines, that means every plant, still you have come in as
a singular embodiment for a very specific purpose. Therefore, integrating your spirit plant is self-actualization. Your spirit plant is the expression of our own consciousness. It is the expression of your own essence, it is your plant of
authenticity as it were. It holds the specific medicine you came here to share with the world. Inherent in its blueprint is the
blueprint for your own life path as well as how you are meant to
help others to grow, expand, heal, transform, improve, be nourished and harmonize. Studying your spirit plant will help you to know
yourself and your life path. Now we all know, especially if you’ve been
watching my videos that a person’s personality
is not necessarily an exact reflection of their essence, in fact it rarely is. This makes it pretty difficult for people to identify their own spirit plant. Also, if you’ve got patterns
of self-hate within you, you are likely to feel resistant
towards your own spirit plant. And also, you’re unlikely
to find your own spirit plant because many people simply have plants they want it to be and plants they definitely
don’t want it to be. So what are you supposed
to do if your spirit plant is something like poise ivy or something like… a weed? Now in the greater universe that’s considered amazing. That consciousness is valuable. Just because a human being says it isn’t, doesn’t mean it isn’t. However, you are going to run up against your own dislike for certain plants and your own need for your
plant to be significant. Like I’ve said before, somebody who has the capacity to perceive beyond the
normal range of senses can tell you what your spirit plant is. The same way that a conductor
can tell you whether the pitch and key of one
instrument is exactly the same as another instrument. That being said, I don’t want you to run out
and try to find these people, including me. Because, people do not assimilate information or truths about themselves, when it is just handed to them. It has to be uniquely
a personal experience. It is much more powerful
to find your spirit plant in journey work ceremonies,
rituals, meditations and/or dream states. And, like I keep saying, it would be very beneficial
for you to understand that you do not choose your spirit plant, your spirit plant chooses you. Now obviously, because this plant is your representative
in the plant kingdom, you’re a vibrational match
to it, aren’t you? This means it’s probably going
to show up in your life whether you notice it or not and this means it’s very important
to be in the state of observation. Now, you do not have to be
passive about this process. Like I said, anytime you broadcast forth an asking of the universe, all people, places,
circumstances and events begin to come to you. Therefore, I would suggest you set the intention very strongly to know what your spirit plant is and then stay very very open. What do you do once you
have found your spirit plant? Learn everything you can about it. What traits do you associate
with this plant? Discover the perspectives of
other people and cultures about the “medicine”
this plant possesses. Spend time around this plant. See into this plant, feel
into it and listen to it. Come to understand it. Meditate with this plant in mind. Take note of this plant’s weaknesses
and see them in yourself. Take note of its strengths and find
and express them in yourself. Surround yourself with
things that remind you of this plant and proudly represent it. Do the same thing with your shadow plant and totem plants. Call the energy of this plant
to awaken inside you. Feel it inside yourself always. Own this medicine as your medicine and share it with the world. The medicine inherent
in your spirit plant. Have a good week. Subtitle: narzissus_hun Subtitles by the Amara.org community


  1. My Flatmate has plants in the apartment. She gave me a cut off of one of her plants. She says this plant does not flower. Well 2 weeks in my room and the plant blossomed. So she gave me another cut off of the same to see and yep…bloomed flowers too. But only in my room. So this might be spirit plant. I asked it for a name and as I was searching for a name for it….a song on my laptop cut out and the next song was "joy" by black street. Haha so I call them all joy now.

  2. Thank you for the loving information send you my pure unconditional love and light my spirit plant is the Lily

  3. Stinging Nettle – like a old, grumpy but wise lady. Will sting you but also bring you banishment, protection and healing. 🌱🖤

  4. I can not ignor this heavenly union any longer. This morning tears filled my eyes when I realised you were only with me in my dreams. Why can't dreams come true? For one time I would like 2 to become 1 so, I would finally feel the love I give, returned. Not that it's expected, just because it is needed. To say I have issues is an understatement, but I have nothing but time to work on them. I need so much help I, can't do it all. I fully except that my addiction to you has hit a glass ceiling. I am hot for teacher. I wanted to let you have proof of how completely bonkers I must seem to people, but that is completly fine, my only concern is this beautiful work of art thats infected my heart and my head. I look around the world looks so empty, the cars go by nobody ever stops. I feel so empty I just want to crawl inside a hole and die. I am starting to go through withdrawals without you. You're the drug that I need. I have searched the ends of the earth. Everytime I do anything other than my school work here I suffer. love you so much. I need you, Master Teal.

    Derek ~D~ aka anything you want to call me. I am clay.

  5. Sounds like a nice chapter for a new cookbook. Thanks for giving credit to the lowly raspberry and the majestic oak tree.

  6. Teal pls do a video on energies that are currently happening .. some navigation tools,helpful tips to get through and avoid pain

  7. My spirit animals are goats and sheeps.
    Until today I haven't been aware of having also a spirit plant! But now, after this video, it sounds so logical and natural to me. Why not also having a spirit plant?! And I feel that I've already met my spirit plant, I do know which one it is but I haven't listenend to this inner voice, haven't payed attention yet.
    Thank you for this video. Now having this knowledge, I'm super curious about my personal spirit plant, I do want to get to know it. I'll take the path to my inner voice which will be the guidance to this/my special plant.

  8. It’s about time someone made a video about this! 😆 this video made me so happy. I’ve always felt the consciousness and thoughts of plants and nature- my friend too. Specific plants have specific missions to change consciousness of people and it’s AMAZING

  9. I watched the vid on spirit mineral. I'm not certain but if I had to guess my Spirit Mineral would be Lapis Lazuli.

  10. Now I personally hate the color pink but Pink roses find their way to me when I'm depressed. I faught this so much but then I started manifesting these unintentionally in the spirit and faery realms. Even appearing in RL. And what I found was they symbolize happiness. Something I struggle with. And it always manifest it when I need to ground or control my emotions when astral traveling.

  11. The other day I made a wish to the universe to help me understand how to use plants to help me in my spiritual journey

    I made it because I start to realise the energy of plants and I can feel their vibration but I don't know anything about how to use them

    Continue doing these enlightening videos They are helpful

  12. I thought I was the only one who hated the taste of cilantro….I have become less hateful towards in recent months…

  13. When you were speaking, beets came to mind. They aren't the best looking but very good for your health. I'm just getting back into taking care of myself, in a healthy way & beets keep popping into my thoughts 😉
    Thank you for bringing this to my attention

  14. @Teal Swan I thought I would share for you and everyone why, according to Anthony William in Medical Medium: Life Changing Foods, cilantro tastes bad to some people: "When a person receives an abrupt, harsh flavor from the herb (cilantro), it means that she or he has a higher oxidative rate of heavy metals in her or his system. This doesn't mean the person possesses a higher level of toxic heavy metals. Rather, the heavy metals (in this case, usually a combination of aluminum, nickel, and/or copper, at whatever level) in her or his body are corroding rapidly. Corrosion means that there's toxic runoff, which makes its way into a person's lymphatic system and saliva. The moment cilantro makes contact with the mouth, its phytochemicals start to bind onto any oxidative runoff they encounter – if there's a lot of debris in a person's saliva, it can result in a harsh sensation when eating cilantro. In other words, if someone dislikes cilantro, there's a good chance she or he really needs it."

  15. It's 4 a.m. And it's storming so quiet the distant Thunder. I can't stop thinking about you, have other thoughts, but my focus is brought back to you. How could a creature so incredible cause my heart to freeze in this holding pattern of it's in a holding pattern of love love. Never have I ever felt a connection with such a strong foundation. You have done the impossible, you have opened my heart again to love. I have extreme gratitude for this and would love to pay you in my primary love lang. of service. And yours of gifts, you have my heart, body & mind to control. I give it freely.

  16. I am a sun/son flower. But the capitalist counting corpses (vampires) are trying to turn me and my sun/son flower collegues into giant apple trees. But instead of watering me and providing me with light and warmth from the sun/son…they sanction, starve torture and bomb me and my sun/son flower collegues …trying to make US into apple trees.

  17. I like all plants. Even if I have certain weeds growing in my plant pots, i dont cut them. xD they are all green and beautiful.

  18. Can you make a video on social anxiety, please? I watched your video 'How to get rid of anxiety naturally' and you said that pushing yourself into doing something that gives you anxiety is not self-love. And I agree. But everyone says that the only way of overcoming social anxiety is by facing what scares you. I have social anxiety and everytime I force myself to go into social situations that scare me, it feels like I terrorize myself, hate myself, don't listen to myself, and don't care about myself. But then, after I've done it few times, it seems less scary. Which is the right way?
    I have to admit that I keep searching for ways to overcome my phobia easier. I wanted to manifest confidence. I visualized. Didn't work. Because whenever I'm in a social situation, I feel like a loser. I basically have negative emotions all the time. Then I found out that you could overcome your phobia through lucid dreaming. Sadly, I'm a bad lucid dreamer so far and I'm terrified that I will experience sleep paralysis!
    I avoid facing my fears. I always say that if I had more courage, I could overcome my social anxiety completely in a few months. And then I feel guilty…
    I hope you read my message and make a video! Love you!💜

  19. 💜🙏🏼💜💕✨🙏🏼✨💕💜🍀🍃🌳🌿☘️🌿🍃🍀🌸⭐️💜🙏🏼✨ i knw what it will be about hahah and it is beautiful thank u for this video ⭐️🎼🌸🌳🍃💐☘️🌿🌱

  20. This is a great video! I am somewhat of an herbalist and definitely a plant person and I like all sorts of plant medicine whether they’re psycho active or medicinal or beautiful or whatever I think all plants have basically higher consciousness than people do, but when I try to figure out what my spirit is I didn’t really figure it out until I looked over on my table in the kitchen and I have to say that the escargot begonias have kind of taken over, I love those plants, they’re hard to grow but for some reason they really like me and I really like them because they have spiral leaves they’re very cool I don’t know If they’re my spirit plant or not they definitely don’t have anything medicinal value as far as I know in there I’m sure a highbred but I’m just in love with them, I think I’m going to go on a little journey with them and see what happens thank you

  21. i can see the lies through your eyes… you believe in what you say in the measure it is profitable for your business. I bet you know how to tell people what totem they need,maybe in a conference,and i bet is not for free. People mind is changing all over the world by itself! you money Gurus are all just taking an advantage of it

  22. I hate the satanic cults, they’re insane. I wish teal would make videos every day. If it weren’t for reals videos I wouldn’t have figured out what was happening to me

  23. Yah plz share wht is my spirit toilet paper my spirit toilet my spirit shoes dress n sandal pany bra etc m waiting

  24. I would love to see you and Joe Rogan talk about stuff together 😍🥰 Thanks for sharing! I love these videos 😊✌💖🍄

  25. Can you have the same spirit plant twice as opposed to one for totem and a different for medicine? If so I think Zach Galifianakis has two ferns.

  26. Bindweed I've read actually envelopes cancer cells and kills them. [PDF]field bindweed
    However, field bindweed may also be a valuable plant for fighting cancer! … The PGM did not kill cancer cells growing in test tubes. However, when the PGM was given to mice, it slowed the growth of their tumors by over 70 percent.

  27. I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. The Lorax says, “Just because your spirit plant is a tree, doesn’t mean you should wear a the-need. Hark my words”.

  28. Hey there. I just revived my meditation channel. Let me invite you to check it out and let me know what you think 🙂 Videos will keep coming!!!

  29. How do you deal with your boyfriend thinking someone is more beautiful than you? Or giving a deeper attention to someone other than you?

  30. With respect teal, stick to what your good at which is psychology because this new age mumbo jumbo is no good for anyone.

  31. Usually your videos are not too out there. This one is. Let me guess…my spirit plant is Cholla cactus. It's nasty plant with a lot of spikes.

  32. Hm, I am sure that Shadow plant is Cannabis. I loathe it but feel drawn to it for its abilities to lower the defenses but open the mind to experiences. I don't know or maybe I do not understand it enough beyond the negatives I have heard of it. Not sure what my Totem plant is…yet.

  33. I think mine is apple tree i have such a special connection with the apple trees from my childhood house.I often think of them and whenever i draw i love to draw apple trees 💕

  34. Reminds me of my Celtic Tree Oracle deck

  35. Medical Medium celery juice!!! It is is miraculous healing tonic 🙂 I bet it would be awesome to have celery as your spirit plant!
