people who need not just physical healing, but also
deep emotional healing at the same time. Often, we
cannot heal physically if our hearts are heavy,
weary, or broken.
The Wild Tansy Story
Once, there was a young princess who had lost her child
She was very, very sick – not just physically sick, but
heart sick as well. Her younger brother hears of this
and travels to visit her; when he walks into the sick
room, everything is dark, airless, lifeless and stale,
and physicians hover around the bed like so many
vultures with their pale thin faces and long sharp
noses, muttering long words of doom and gloom.
The brother drives them out and hires a gypsy girl which
has the scent of the hills and the wild flowers in her
hair, laughter in her voice and freedom in her step; she
takes over the care of the princess, lets the sunlight
back into the room, and with her loving care and the
help of nature, herbs and flowers, the princess is saved
and starts on the road to recovery at last.
