Spring is almost here and many people are already planning their gardens. Some will be growing fruits and vegetables while others may be focusing on having a garden full of colorful flowers. When planning your garden, consider creating an Intention Garden to help you manifest whatever it is you are trying to bring into your life. Seeds and plants can be empowered with your intentions and as they grow, they send out intention laden energy to help you achieve your goals. Best of all you can incorporate the flowers and even the fruits and vegetables that you were planning to use anyway so you won’t have to create any extra space in your already planned garden. You can also place crystals and gemstones in your garden to increase the power of your intentions.
Many common plants and flowers are already programmed with specific energies. All you have to do is customize those energies to fit your needs.

Having an intention garden doesn’t take a lot of work and the potential benefits it brings are well worth the effort of growing and maintaining one. There is an excellent book entitled Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs by Scott Cunningham that lists many plants, trees, flowers and herbs as well as the energetic properties they contain. You can also visit: http://www.sticksstonesnbeyond.com/wittanherbs.htm which lists many plants and provides their specific properties.
Peace and Blessings as always, Goddess Reverend Rhonda
