Your Guide to Sacred Plant Medicines in Hawaii and Beyond

Updated: Jul 28

A MUST-READ to help you find the right plant medicine experience.

I just came back from a powerful awakening journey with sacred plant medicine on the beautiful West Side of Oahu.

Over the last couple of months, I have been calling in the right teacher to embark on this journey. Deep inside my soul, however, I know we can ALL heal ourselves. We don't need outside teachers when we listen, trust and follow our own hearts.

Luckily, we have Mother Earth to support us until we become wise teachers and self-healers. She not only provides everything we need to survive but everything to support our paths toward healing and expansion.

She grounds and expands our roots; and

She nourishes and heals our hearts.

We can embody Her infinite wisdom when we connect with the land, the ocean, and animals.

But we can only tap into Her healing power when we experience Her sacred magic: the essence of flowers, the healing properties of herbs, the sacred oils in the plants… In other words, alternative treatments, sacred plant medicines, and spiritual practices.

Recent research and studies worldwide have shown the endless benefits of plant medicines such as Cacao, Rapeh, Ayahuasca, and Psilocybin. They can be used as complementary treatments for various mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and addiction. Among many other usages. [You'll find a list of inspiring documentaries about it at the end of this short read].

But wait to get too excited.

Plant medicines are not meant for everyone.

They give what you NEED and not what you WANT. That's why these powerful plants must be treated respectfully in a ceremonial setting or prescribed by a psychiatrist.

I have learned how to honor and use plant medicines wisely here in Hawaii. To not only see them as magical pills that will solve all my problems but as wise teachers to help me see, understand and release my deepest wounds.

The wisdom of sacred medicines has shown me how blessed I am to be in this physical body. I became more grounded and connected to everything around me. I released what was preventing me from expanding my consciousness further. I learned to trust and surrender to the wisdom of my own heart instead of seeking answers outside all the time.

Yes, I could figure out all of the above on my own, but I chose to be supported by Mother Earth's love and wisdom.

I've learned many lessons with plant medicines. I know She will call me again when I am ready for my next lesson. But until then, I'll continue to listen, trust and follow my heart, and learn from other teachers - my family and community.


It's through relationships that we grow the most.

If yes, please read the following guidelines carefully to find the sacred medicine that is right for you.


Cacao provides a gentle and safe way to expand your consciousness and open the heart chakra. StarSeed offers Cacao Ceremonies in our Private Retreats. After your ceremony and some guidance, I highly encourage you to continue the experience at home for 21 days to feel all the healing benefits of this ancient sacred medicine. Learn more about Cacao here.


Rapeh is another legally sacred shamanic medicine I feel called to share with my community. If you are interested in experiencing Rapeh in a ceremony setting, join the waitlist for the upcoming journey by sending an email to or commenting below.


Ayahuasca and Psilocybin have no approved use in the US except for religious purposes, clinical research, etc. So before diving into it, please carefully research these powerful plant medicines. Then, if it resonates with you, ask your guides to bring the right teacher to guide you into it. StarSeed doesn't facilitate experiences with Ayahuasca and Psilocybin or provide references to other facilitators. But, if this path is meant for you, it'll find you. Trust it!

Please note that I am not recommending or suggesting that you experience any of what is mentioned above. Instead, the purpose of this guide is to help you become aware of other ways to heal and expand your consciousness.
