its that time of year that we’ve already begun planting, or maybe you’re a more organized person than i am and you’ve planted everything like a month ago.
either way, how can we infuse our gardens and lovely baby plants with the best positive energy to grow beautiful?
earlier this week, i posted on pest control and a spell for that, but how about a garden spell for healthy soil?
what you will need:
- a small clay, glass, metal, or ceramic planting pot or glass jar (must be heat-proof)
- some good quality soil, potting soil or topsoil
- a piece of paper and something to write with
- a green or white candle
- something to light your candle with
- a length of twine or ribbon that can wrap around your candle at least 3 times
- a small dish of spring water (about 1/4 cup at most)
- start out by listing everything you have planted or plan to plant in your garden. be as specific as possible about which plants, which varieties, colors, and so forth. (e.g.- 7 mixed color gladiolus)
- light your candle
- hold the jar/pot of soil in your hands and close your eyes. picture seeds sprouting from it and stretching toward the light. picture them growing taller and healthier. picture the blooms or fruits they will bear. your visualization here is very important to let your energy know exactly what outcome you expect.
- place the soil back down and holding the twine or ribbon in your hand, wind it around the candle once as you say:
may my plants grow
row by row
5. list out loud the plants you have written down as you wind the twine or ribbon around a second time
[state your list of all specific plants here
6. as you wind the twine or ribbon around the 3rd and final time, say the final verse:
with this soil
nourish my plants
feed them well
where they stand
7. tie off the twine or ribbon after it has wrapped around your candle 3 times. hold the piece of paper with your plant names above the jar/pot of soil and light it with the candle. let it burn down on top of the soil.
8. douse the embers with the small dish of water and stir the soil, ashes, and water together. spread the soil over your garden.
