It is that time of year again, where we find ourselves wanting to celebrate mother earth’s vibrancy with the colors she produces. We plant bright flowers in pots and set them as an entry point to our homes. We feel happy, as do our visitors when they enter our homes. Magnificent colors welcome all.
Here in Minnesota there is still snow on the ground, but we have begun to plant seeds or seedlings indoors, and when the weather warms we move the plants outdoors. We like to write our intents or those things we want to manifest in our lives on a piece of paper and put that paper in the bottom of the planters. Cover the paper with dirt and then add seeds or seedlings. It is symbolic of planting your intents or your dreams and is a reminder of these intents each day as you watch the seeds grow.
You may also rainbow-colored tumbled or rough stones over the tops of your flower pots, an arrangement of rocks, or bowl of rocks, creates a sense of peace, harmony, and joy around your entrance, and sets up a symbolic rainbow bridge of protection between your home and the spirit world. The color of the crystals – red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise blue, indigo, and violet – also links to the chakras, your spiritual energy centers, so you will benefit from an energy boost every time you enter your home.
For 2 flower pots – choose two of the same tumbled stone from each rainbow color, one for each flower pot.
Red : Garnet, red jasper, ruby
Orange: Carnelian, orange calcite
Yellow : amber, golden beryl, topaz, citrine
Green: aventurine, chrysoprase, malachite
