The Psychic Garden

garden

Spring is a time when many of us get hit with the gardening bug – and I am no exception. I have spent hours and hours over the last week weeding and preparing the garden for Spring planting.
My garden is very important to me. It is where I grow a lot of my own food, relax and unwind and heal myself. It is what grounds me after a long day of psychic readings. Going out into the garden and breathing the fresh air and looking at all the new life growing around me really helps to cast off the stress of the day. It is one of my meditation times.
There is a spiritual side of gardens and gardening. From the countless myths and folklore associated with certain plants, through to the ancient meditative gardening of the Toaist monks, plants have always been associated with the spiritual and psychic realm. Many traditional spells and rituals used the magical properties associated with different plants to bring about the desired results. Just growing a few of these herbs will help to bring their energies into your life. Here are a few of the spiritual and magical properties of plants for your garden.
