Jayla and I started a few seeds this week. 2 different kinds of leeks and 3 different kinds of onions. I have grand plans for our backyard garden this year and I am hoping I can pull it off.

We went outside to wet the seed starting mix, but first we said a prayer to bless the water before adding it to the soilless mix. I have a blessing (scroll down to the bottom of the page) that a dear friend gave me a few years ago to bless our water. I put mine on packing labels that I printed off the computer, so that I can stick them right on our incoming and outgoing pipes, our water cooler carafe and watering cans.. Dr. Masaru Emoto has done some remarkable work with water crystals and the power of positive words, check out this remarkable and mind boggling video. Then we blessed the seeds and sent them our love before sowing them. I reminded Jayla (and myself) that these seeds will eventually become plants that will feed us and so we need to infuse them with love energy. This beautiful energy will then go into our bodies when the plants are harvested and eaten.

I know some of you might think that this is a “bit much” or “airy fairy” or whatever other words you use to describe these practices; but the entire planet and everything on it is made of energy – we are energy. We appear solid, but we are not. And the plants we eat are made of energy too. It mixes with our energy. It becomes us. It really does.

So, I say, why not put a little bit more positive energy out there in the world. It couldn’t hurt right?!

“When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in

Oh, let it shine, c’mon
Now everybody just sing along
Let the sun shine in
Open up your heart and let it shine on in
When you are lonely, let it shine on
Got to open up your heart and let it shine on in
And when you feel like you’ve been mistreated
And your friends turn away
Just open your heart, and shine it on in”
