Planting seeds for Wellness Figuratively & Metaphorically
As many of you know we have four major seasons in most areas of the world. In the Americas, across the plains of Europe, and Asia; the migration of animals and humans was/is determined by these sacred times of the year. As the Ice melts, the buds burst onto every branch, and shoots of tender grasses begin to pop up around us. These are not the only signs our ancestors and the animals we followed were very much aware of. The change in light throughout the duration of the day was also and still is a huge indication that a season is changing.
As Spring begins its slow thaw into blooms of fragrance and color. The celestial has its own dance. The Equinox mark the sun changing its passings along the equator while the time of day and night are the same and the Solstices mean the daylight is either longest or shortest depending on which season it is marking. The Vernal or Spring Equinox in all areas of the world brings the light balance for the growth of new life, plants & animals. You may recall seeing works of art depicting birds, rabbits, flowers, buds, lambs, and other new babies. This is because half of the species on the earth tend to have their young when the nutrient-rich spring foods are at their peak. The young grow up during the summer and fall bounty so that they can have a hunkered-down winter. Humans are no different! Humans have migrated or switched their routines with the equinox. Whether it was changing locations to hunt or preparing the ground to sow the seeds for the new year, humans have adapted to the specialness of the equinox.
Spring Equinox has also been a time of honoring the earth, the Mother, the Goddess, and devotion for a good year. Many cultures around the globe have held sacred rites at this time. Showing respect to the cycle of the celestial and earth, the ongoing circle of birth, growth, life, and death.
Spring deities or guardians in these cultures share a theme. Each is associated with fertility, growth, renewal, wisdom, and plants. All over the world, there are festivals going on to honor these themes, whether it is named after a deity or the celebration of the earth herself.
Today I offer you these tips on starting your own seedlings. Use the moon and believe it or not the farmer's almanac, these are great things to follow when planting. A grand thing to do is prepare the soil. Just as you would physically you want to mentally and energetically. Turning the soul and soil with fertilizer. Feeding the earth, the womb of your seeds. Preparing this space with good intentions and affirmations. Honoring the ground in which you will be planting your nutrients, hopes, and dreams.
What to plant or start depends on where and what you want. Make a list of the top emotional, energetic, and soulful things you want to plant, and harvest.Then what herbs, flowers, and other foods do you want. Pay attention to your zones and if you need to start seeds inside or can do them outside, like lettuce beds vs kale gardens
Best nutrient-rich veggies are Lettuces, carrots, asparagus, beets, potatoes, parsnips, and chard. Flowers & herbs for teas/healing are Rosemary, Sage, Mint, Cilantro, Parsley, Dill, Lemon Balm, Basil, Garlic, Calendula, Caraway, Chamomile, Marjoram, and Lavender.
Planting with the moon is usually above ground using Waxing, and Bulbs/roots plant well with the Waning moon. It is best not to use a dark moon or new moon for planting. There are lots of beliefs on when to harvest those plants too according to the moon.
So get your soil and garden beds ready with the Equinox. Call on your ancestors, guides, and deities of Spring. Include your hopes, dreams, and plant seeds in your ritual.Plant them with the appropriate moon and enjoy the bringing of new life and opportunities into your life.
Have you wanted to speak to and hear from the plants around you? Did you know you can? It isn’t that much different than animal communication. It is also a form of telepathy, with a heart to heart, mind to mind connection. I will explain more in my next weeks newsletter. I will also share a few of my students experiences with their plants, their trees, and when visiting other places. My students had always had a “senses” of communication with plant beings. They just doubted, or pushed the belief away, till starting their journey with me. As they lifted the veils between them and the great universes wisdom; their abilities became stronger. Their abilities still to this day are growing each and everyday.
When a door closes another opens, so they say, ?but what if waiting for that door ? causes you to wait on life?
Watching as time ticks away and you are left standing there, waiting….and wasting your purpose on a door to open! Is anyone else getting clammy palms just thinking about this? I am! So, why not open the window and get out there!? What is wrong with that?
You will notice I talk about the veils being lifted. A fog of sorts or curtains being drawn, all to reveal the Truth of the Universe…and of your Self.
Here, right now, I am asking you to let that metaphorical door close on what is no longer in your highest good. Take a deep breath. A few more…close your eyes.
As you open them sigh with indignation. You are about to embark on Your Journey!
Climb out that window and start living!
I may sound like one of those thousands of self-help books or "coaches" that are a dime a dozen. Yea, in ways I can be seen that way. What makes me different though is that it is not Just the Mindset and gumption that draw those curtains and open the windows! Heck, it isn't even your power of manifestation that does that. It helps, but it didn't make it happen. What and Whom is much more "in the know" than that. Guess who? YOU! As well as some assistance from the Universe.
The Universe needs to know you are truly wanting your purpose. It needs to know so that your helpers and guides can be there for you. It needs to know so that it can support your dreams and prayers. To send you unconditional love. This can only happen though if you let go of the ego that you are in complete control of. Lol…no this isn't a Kerry Underwood song and I am not going to tell you to yell, "Jesus take the wheel," no matter how tempting that may be right now. Especially with all the uncertainty, we have All been living through the past few years. You may feel best asking for avatars and great light beings to assist and guide you. There is Nothing wrong with that. What I am explaining right now is that you have to give up the control And…this is big And… hand your Macha Latte to Jesus, gather the reins, and run out that Window!
Sounds confusing I know! Been there too!
As humans we have free will, right? As humans, we have these amazing vessels we call bodies. As humans, we strive to "succeed," how we see fit. Many want another person to complete them. They want the grass on the other side to be greener and sweeter, whilst forgetting the luscious sweet grass they are surrounded by.
So…where is this window you ask?
Okay, picture the space you are in with the closed door. The window appears. At first closed tight. Curtains are not yet open all the way. You have a sense of wonder and hesitancy to open those curtains. You settle, breathe, and with vigor. Open the curtains timidly. Slowly opening yourself up. Slowly noticing for the first time what lay beyond the window and what lays on your side of the window. Open the curtains and take in the view. Set the intention to live life fully with compassion, gentleness, love, and grace. Opening yourself to the universe and its support. Give right back to the universe as it sends to you.
I have had many doors slammed in my face. Spun within the rooms of closed doors and windows. writhing on the floor with my health plummeting. Drowning in feelings like I am wasting away and no one really knows who I am. What I am. Or knows what I desire. For a long time I felt my stuff was not as important as the world's, or yours, or my families. To work until I am sick. To push my body to its breaking point. Doing so as I wait for the doors to open for my dreams to happen…tick…tick…tick… I have gone through several windows and come back to the room with closed doors. Still wondering if this might be the day the Universe heard me or felt me…for My stuff.Recently I have made a big step forward.
I took the windows and made a freaking door! Lol.
It sometimes doesn't work and I have a moment of emotional spins. My guides center me and help me to get back into my healers' groove. As I have been healing from my health of adrenal fatigue, heart things, grief, sadness, depression, and self-loathing. I have also climbed out the windows and shimmed over to open the curtains of many others' windows.
I may be going through my own stuff, as we all are. Having my own dilemma with my f*#@ing doors. Lol. However, something my helpers and guides reminded me of when I was young and facing closed doors. When I wanted to give up. When I doubted why I was here. When I felt I was failing other's to heal and grow their awesomeness. This is what I keep being told over and over. By my guides and my students.
