I am a Healer, Psychologist, educator and Sound Therapist with an avid interest in consciousness and transpersonal experiences. Oh and did I mention Astrology?
A friend of mine has recently introduced me to the energy fields of Feng Shui. I had come across this years ago whilst voyaging through many Chinese practices such as T'ai Chi, Chi Gung, Accupuncture, Shiatsu and Taoist philosophy. I'd never taken Feng Shui as seriously as perhaps I should have especially as the other forms of knowledge have taken prominent roles in my life.
I have mentioned previously (Energy Imprints blog) how unconsciously I had been creating more than my fair share of washing by loading up my Abundance corner with wash baskets and clothes horses. These have dutifully been cleared away and I have to say the washing does seem to have diminished considerably! Coincidence? Hardly, since circumstances haven't changed. I still have two daughters living at home who believe that clothes should be washed even if they have only brushed against skin in a trial outfit exploration exercise.
So with this in mind, I have watched the progress of the money plant which has sat in the Abundance corner for a couple of years now. I recently felt somewhat distressed by its condition. It has gone rather yellow and dropped many leaves. My fear was that having cleared the washing away, it didn't know what to do with the increased light and space it had been given. Today I have considered this further. I realise that I have conscientiously watered it a great deal more than usual this year. Symbolically this would appear to reflect the amount of emotional investment I have placed into setting up a business after being made redundant. I've had time to water the plants! As a result it seems to be following the fate of my herb garden and drowned in despair. The last few days (of sunshine in the real world!!!) I have left it dry. To my surprise it is now sprouting further stems around the original. I had not noticed these before.
The message I am receiving from this is that if we pay less attention to trying to force what we want and allow our plans to develop organically at their own pace instead, then things take off in new unexpected directions. This new growth and the 'branching out' is exactly what I need to occur and I am seeing the Money Plant in the Abundance Corner as a sign that the roots and foundations that I have been putting in place are now beginning to shoot and produce results.
