Geraniums as House Plants
With highly unique, fragrant, broad leaves which grow from the main stalk, they are one of many forms in the genus, providing continuous seasonal flowers that are from bright neon orange to pale plum. They are sold in swathes of varieties and colors at local nurseries and greenhouses and are a true favorite among gardeners. What many geranium lovers neglect to do each summer is bring their friends in for the winter. They often die back in the fall and beginnings of the harsh frost that is soon to defeat them.
As house plants, geraniums clean the air like any other plant, but these are much more special, for they enrich the atmosphere with not just clean air, but also remove unwanted and harmful emotional residue as the year progresses and revitalizes Chi/Qi or lifeforce levels. Unlike most plants, I trust geranium each year to effectively reproduce happiness in untold quantities throughout the home or room they are placed in. Even after the summer, all winter long they still continue to stunningly greet us with their endless flowers. They’ve been in my home for a few years now, and honestly, I accredit them for the consumption of stress levels in my home.
Sage is a miracle of its own birthright. It is a blessing of nature that we are allowed to use it for our healing and our cleansing. We must give thanks that for all the times we have used sage, we have a living friend in our home. The health and growth of the living home sage is an indicator and reflection of our own health and growth.
When sage is breaking or browning, do we have stress which goes rampant and without remedy? When sage is dying back or retreating in color, are we going inward and find that health problems are arising due to a lack of outward positive expression? When sage is small and growth is stunted, are we not getting proper nutrition, lack of sleep, health ignorance, and spiraling finances?
We must as spiritual people be able to read the symptoms of our plants as reflective of the type of chi that we offer to them. Remember, that house chi is dependent on us, the caretakers of our homes and our lives. When we are achy, tired, and lacking, so are our plants, and thus, their energies cannot be exchanged into our lives.
When we are healthy and our plants are healthy, they can add beneficial enhancements to our lives, our health, our families, and most importantly, our careers.
