Nature is a wonderful, interconnected and incredibly diverse system of growing things – Growing Energy – I call it! Did you know that with every plant or things that grows there is a nature angel encouraging it to grow and give it strength and energy?
Being out in nature, amongst the tree’s grasses, plants and flowers is a way to connect just with nature in the bigger sense but all the small things that make up what you see, feel and smell. Having something growing in your house is was to connect with growing things. Let’s be clear on that statement. We are not talking about cut flowers, although they are beautiful and we care for them while their blooms are bright and full, they are already dead. The roots and soil around the roots are no longer with them.
To have something growing in your home means to have soil, a plant and to be watering it and giving it the sunlight and other nutrients, it needs to meet the expectation of the nature angel hovering over it.
That growing plan will bring positivity with it. It will be good for you and what you do to take care of it will also be something else good for you. If you are sensitive to Reiki and spiritual energy, they will not bring positivity to you but they will also bring energy. If you are attuned to Reiki, this will be a bi-directional transfer of energy – from you to them and from them to you. If you have a garden, that will be all the more so. If a plant struggles to grow, it will show you. And, like a human recipient, you can send Reiki energy to it.
Send the reiki energy to them once or twice a week or if the plant seems to be struggling, every few days until it starts to improve.
The energy that plants provide to a space or to you are enhanced by the physical fact that plants are source oxygen – which we all need.
Various folk cultures and traditions assign symbolic meanings to plants. Although these are no longer commonly understood by populations that are increasingly divorced from their old rural traditions, some survive. In addition, these meanings are alluded to in older pictures, songs and writings. New symbols have also arisen: one of the most known in the United Kingdom is the red poppy as a symbol of remembrance of the fallen in war.

The list does not include all plants obviously! My mother loved and cared for Afrikan Violets which are native to Tanzania, she could encourage the flowers to bloom year-round. If you are interested in brining plants into your environment, indoors or out, do some research first to understand what the plant needs. Afrikan Violets for example, like a lot of light but not direct sunlight. Soil should be a good quality potting mix, and kept moist and humidity should be high if possible, with temperature never below 15.5c or 60f.
One other side effect if you have a garden is the improvement in your garden and your ability to help plants grow and thrive.
