Dearest Earth Apprentees,
July is the most productive/crazy busy month of the year, when it comes to farming. My journals have almost always skipped this month all together. Not only are we seeding our vegetables and herbs, weeding the plants already in the ground, but we are also harvesting up the wazoo and doing CSA pickups and Markets to boot! Constantly speaking in thank-yous…and trying to stay hydrated in between it all.
With this time of year so busy outside, there becomes less and less time to sit back and reflect inside. Most of my inside time is spent catching up on the sleep I didn’t get the night before! Long days and short nights, that’s the Summer Season for yah.
However, there is good news for all you friendly Herbal-Lovers. The plants couldn’t be more happy to talk to you! In fact, it is hard NOT to hear them. So with all the information and guidance you’ve been gathering here on the blog, now is the perfect time to listen and frolic with the Plant Spirits and Fairys in your backyard.
I am working on a post (going on 3 weeks now, sorry!) that will be a guided meditation for all of you to practice your Plant Spirit Communication. In the meantime, I encourage you all to take notice of which plants grow near your home. These are the plants which are calling to you, and want to help you. In fact, if a plant is doing really well in your garden/yard (whether intentionally planted or a weed) your best bet is to identify it and call it by name… It wants to meet you and offer you something!
The post I am creating is something I have never attempted in such fashion. A meditation which involves looking at pictures of flowers and finding which one, if any, would like to be your new Best Friend. So to prepare yourself, again take notice of which flowers are waving Hello or calling your attention from the corner of your eye. And I will present you with a post that you can take to the magic land of instinctual healing!
Lots of luke-warm Love,
ps – i figured luke warm is a great temp as compared to wicked hot or frigid.
May the Breeze bring you happiness xox
