The word deva is a Sanskrit word meaning “body of light” or “shining one.” In Buddhism, devas are compassionate beings who live in the higher realms but are still subject to the laws of rebirth. Various texts regarding devas seem to closely associate them with faeries and angels, but they are not mythical wee folk, those who act as intermediaries with the spirit world, or messengers of God. They work on an etheric level to orchestrate the energies that create the specific forms of nature. Devas hold all of the cellular blueprints and genetic codes for plants in their memories.

Everything in nature is endowed with intelligence and spirit. When we are in communication with the devas, we enter into a deeper relationship with the spirit of the plants. When we are in touch with a plant’s spirit, we are more receptive to information about its medicine. In this time of rampant destruction of planetary resources, the devas hold the keys to rapid restoration. Because healing takes place within the context of relationship, they desire our human interaction to accomplish this. We are the ones who must carry out the wisdom they are all too eager to share with us. By becoming more aware of the role that the devas play in our everyday lives, we not only heal on a physical level but also may discover that the strongest medicine lies in their ability to help us to heal our hearts, our minds, and our spirits. Every time we receive the healing essence of a plant, we also receive communion.
