About Lynn Moore

I would like to introduce myself to you. I was a spirited child with older parents who didn’t really understand all my energy, so they often sent me outside to play. What a gift it was to be born and raised in the freedom of the fifties. I loved being outside in the forest and I felt a strong connection to it and all the plants, trees and creatures living there. I made friends with everything that lived there, anything that crawled and moved was my friend.

I am an Early Childhood Educator and owned and operated three daycares in Parksville. When I sold the last Daycare, November 1, 2015, I was ready for a change. In May of 2015 I attended a Retreat in Arizona with Nancy Shipley Rubin and another participant, Daniel Tsukayama, from Hawaii who received a message for me. It said that I was needed to communicate with plants and to follow my Great-Grandmother’s work with the plants to heal us.

In 2005 I was at my friend, Annie B’s, home in Vancouver to attend the Summer Solstice ceremony with her. During the night, I woke to see my great-grandmother, Emma Eudora Sully, who had been a herbalist in the Interior of British Columbia now standing beside my bed. My great-grandmother was born in 1850 and, I’ve been told, she traveled with a First Nation Spirit Guide from farm to farm and home to home healing people. She said to me, “it is time you learned the properties of plants”.

When I came home after my Great-Grandmother’s visitation, I started taking Herbal Workshops and courses. I studied twice with Sheelagh Mackenzie on Denman Island, and then signed up with Rosemary Gladstar, a herbalist from the USA, for an online study program. In 2013-2014 I completed a ‘practical herbalist program’, with Master herbalist, Don Ollsin, from Victoria.

I am an Early Childhood Educator and owned and operated three daycares in Parksville. When I sold the last Daycare, November 1, 2015, I was ready for a change. In May of 2015 I attended a Retreat in Arizona with Nancy Shipley Rubin and another participant, Daniel Tsukayama, from Hawaii who received a message for me. It said that I was needed to communicate with plants and to follow my Great-Grandmother’s work with the plants to heal us.

I arrived home from the Retreat and the plants started to call me to harvest and prepare them to make potions for healing mortals. The first to call me was the Mugwort, and It told me to infuse the herb in Fractionated Coconut oil. I harvested the Mugwort and placed it on my window sill for two months. Other plants/herbs called to me; some were in my garden and others were along the side of the road. I would be riding my bike and the plants/herbs would call out to me to stop and harvest them. The second potion I made was an alcohol infused tincture. I called it ‘7 Flower Power Tincture’. The flowers and herbs I used were ‘Self-Heal, St. John’s Wort, lavender, Rose Petals, Mallow, Calendula and White Yarrow’.

At this point I got stuck and I did not know what to do, but I continued to pick and dry herbs and flowers every day. I listened to the stories the plants and herbs told me, but I did not know what to do. I asked my Spiritual Director, Nancy Shipley Rubin what I should do next. She suggested that I use some of the magic potions I had made myself.  I picked up the ‘7 Flower Power Tincture’ and asked it what it would do for me.  I heard “Transfiguration” WOW! I started using the product and my whole world changed. I was moved out of the uncertainty and fear into the knowing. What a gift my product had brought me. I started to make more Oils and Alcohol Tinctures. I bought labels, business cards and bottles. The next step was putting my product into something I could sell to others.

In August, my friend, Annie B. was here for a visit. She encouraged me to go to a Summer Street Market and sell my products. Since August 2016, I have been a vendor at Summer Craft Fairs and at Christmas Craft Shows. It has been a wonderful experience to interact with many amazing people who are interested in my product, and it was so much fun.  I loved talking with people about what I was doing. I listen to people who stop by and talk. Some people email me with needs for family and friends. Last week a person asked for a product that would help her friend who is suffering with Hemorrhoids. I asked my plants and I heard – a salve using Mugwort and Comfrey.  The Mugwort will release the pain and the Comfrey will heal the sores. I am so excited to hear the messages the plants tell me and to support people who are open to receive this support. I also started channeling the message of what the plants and herbs wanted us mortals to know, particularly how the plants/herbs were supporting them. When someone brought a product, I gave them a plant reading and how the product would support them. People loved the readings they received.

2017 is the year to get my web site up and running so I can reach more people who can be supported by my powerful products. It will be a new beginning for me, a new opening to listen to the plants/herbs and make healing magic potions.
