Plants and the Five Love Languages

Did you know you can apply the 5 love languages to your plants at home?

I figured this out through experience, without really trying to apply the five love languages I noticed as I spent more time with my plants doing activities other than just watering them, they would grow better, faster and would survive longer. Before I started applying these methods I would lose more plants or they would wilt quicker.

At first, I was taking the advice of someone else and trying to use positive energy to help my plants with the re-potting process so they would survive longer (before this they often died shortly after the process). I found, like good feng shui, the positive energy uplifted the feeling of my home but also found it helps the plants grow faster and greener leaving you with a beautiful garden! There was a statistical difference in how many plants survived between when I applied these methods versus before when I just would water them.

Many of you have read the book The Five Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman. If you haven’t, its a very good book and describes the 5 possible ways you can send and receive love, usually written in the context of a person. Not everyone has the same primary way to send or receive love, they can differ and this is why you can have couples sending love to their partner but their partner doesn’t feel loved. For instance, one client’s way of sending love was working hard to provide for home and family, but their partner may want quality time, so at times there was resentment from the lack of personal time spent.

The 5 Love Languages

  • Affirmations – Tell your plant it is doing well, that is is growing well, that it is pretty or handsome, thank it for being there. Tell it to get along with other plants particularly the little ones that are new. Just like a puppy, use a nice tone. This has an energetic effect and raises the vibration around you. I used to say “yay!” with dogs (not necessarily with cats) and they would become instantly happy. I find it uplifts your energy and the energy around you as well. I feel a big difference with the plants for hours after I give affirmations to a group of plants. You may feel odd, but if you want positive energy in your home and you are willing, try it while the husband or wife is away.
  • Quality time – I don’t think plants need a ton of time but the act of you paying attention, talking to them, watering them is all quality time. After you’ve raised the positive energy then you may want to sit in that energy and enjoy the benefits. Think of plants as little sponges of energy, make sure you make it positive and you can enjoy it for some time later. Someone recommended playing music for them, I’ve found plant healing frequency music on YouTube or you can choose something you intuitively think is best for the mood you want to feel around your home.
  • Physical touch – I was doing this without really thinking about it. One of my cypress trees had a branch that extends like an hand to greet me and I would shake it and say something encouraging. That particular plant was dying at first but I was able to bring it back to life. You can see the areas on the branches were they turned brown and then the outer edges of the branches turn green as the new needles came in. After I realized the power of the 5 love languages on my plants, eventually I would touch every plant and use positive affirmations. I wouldn’t over do it, not all plants need a hug or really want too much touching (I don’t hug my plants, I promise).
  • Gifts – This is easy, your offerings of water and plant food, new soil at times or even a bigger pot can all be gifts they like. Use positive speaking when doing pot transfers, I used to lose plants while doing this.  They call it plant shock.  Ever since using the 5 love languages all of my plants have survived pot and soil replacements. You can even ask God to send elementals, kings, queens or nature spirits to help the plant with the transition that is best and highest for both of you so it doesn’t cause plant shock and rapid plant death.
  • Acts of Service – Overlapping with gifts, transferring to bigger pots, changing the soil, watering them, trimming them and other plant maintenance can go onto this category.

Now when I buy plants, I talk to them on our way home, even listen to them to get to know them better. Start by talking to them, ask their name or you can name them. Put little labels on them, put pride into selecting their little pots and encourage them when transferring them anywhere. Tell them they will be ok when moving between area or pots. Just as with your pets you think they don’t speak the language but they can get a lot from your tone of voice. Your voice is also determining the energy around you and your plants which puts everyone at ease.  Not to mention the spirits who maintain the plants and their energies can understand your meaning.  Sincerity is best.

Protection from EMF, Static Electricity and Radiation

Absorbing or mimicking too much EMF, static electricity and radiation can cause you to feel brain fog, out of sorts, disrupt sleep or any of the other ungrounding side effects.

There are a number of methods to protect yourself from absorbing or mimicking this energy. 1. Most effective I’ve used over the years was having a bowl with usually about a quarter of cup of sea salt next to my computer. I put my finger in the sea salt and I ask the sea salt to absorb EMF, static electricity, and radiation for a period of time, it could be 8 hours or 5 hours, however long you feel like you’re going to be in the area of a computer.

2. Imagine and ask your energy field to not come in contact with the energy field of the computer. After I visualize an energy field around the computer and then imagine my energy field, I draw a red X with my mind between the two fields seeing them separate and not touching or overlapping. Again assign a period time, 8 hours, 5 hours or something along those lines.

3. Shungite is a great stone to ask to protect you from EMF as well as you can use quartz. You can ask the crystals in the palm of your hand to absorb EMF, static electricity, radiation as long as it’s in your pocket or it’s in your possession. Then keep it in your pocket for your day and put it out in the sun and moonlight cleanse and recharge.

4. Lastly you can ask Mother Earth to ground the energies from your computer or device for a time. Imagine a protective bubble around your computer, draining the EMF, radiation and static down into the earth until it reaches the core of the earth. Notice this cord that connects your computer and the earth core sustaining itself as long as you need, 8 to 12 hours. End with please and thank you for intention.

If you store the energy in your lower chakras, or they disrupt the normal energy flow, that can cause some other issues like eating more food than you need or alcohol consumption in an attempt to ground. I’ve noticed they can disrupt your inner feeling of peace, almost giving you a distorted hyper feeling or feeling of fear. Too much EMF can also feel like a disruption in your psychic abilities, so it is good to ask God to remove it, protect yourself from it or ground it whenever possible.

Top 3 “Facts” About Empaths That Are False

how to feel better, how to feel better, how to feel better

By Andrea Knight

Much of what we have learned from empaths or clairsentient people comes from other gurus and teachers. Here are a few misunderstood beliefs around what it means to be an empath that I have found independently in my experiences with some solutions to help you feel better now.

1. We absorb other people’s energy. I learned that this was not always true when doing my Dominion article, instead it may be more rare than you think. Instead, like an actor taking on a role, you may be a mimicking the energies of others, and all you have to say is “reverse”, visualizing all your energies, protectors and guides turning around in a circle to reverse out of this feeling. Ask them instead to “mimic” peace and feeling safe. I will also visualize an arrow going back in time to a point I was feeling at peace, like after a good meditation. In a few seconds I will be restored to that feeling. Much faster than meditations, energy healing sessions, saging and sweetgrass…you get the point. Can be done in seconds while you are anywhere. This solves the problem for me in most instances where I feel icky, off, not safe or brain fogged.

2. That it is actually only our spirit absorbing or mimicking others. Not always true and less often than you think. Instead what I have found is I am feeling my guides, angels and other spiritual helpers mimicking or absorbing the energies and entities. They are doing their part in protecting me and I am feeling what they are protecting me from. What I recommend here is in my “heal the healers” article, imagine your spiritual guides, healers, and other spiritual helpers getting cleansed when you heal yourself. You can just visualize this with all their chakras being cleared, aligned and their energies restored to brilliant colors. You may feel better faster than only working on yourself. Also this is another awesome way to elevate your psychic abilities to the next level as they help facilitate the psychic, mediumship and energy healing process. This method is helpful especially when you’ve done everything you possibly can on yourself but not feeling enough of a change to the positive. “Heal your healers.”

3. That everything we feel, mimic or absorb is from people. Nope. Sometimes you are feeling the environment, the rocks, trees, plants, air, as well as what people, animals and spirits have left behind energetically. You are potentially reading what is, what was and what may be in the future if you have that ability. Mentally note it, and then ask your spiritual entourage to “reverse” like in #1.

This concept of “reversing” out of feeling like others, the environment or spirits is a result of independent research and experience. Please do not copy without proper reference to author and links to this site.

It is possible to go to the grocery store, even Walmart with great psychic or energy healing abilities and feel at peace with no brain fog. Watch out for that article in the future but some of that advice is contained in the recommendations above.

Cleanse your Home Energy without Sage and Sweetgrass

sage allergy, sage allergy, sage allergy

By Andrea Knight

I’ve used sage and sweetgrass for 7+ years and it can be very effective in cleansing the home of negative energies and entities to replace with positive energy.

After using sage for so long, I knew it was not best for my allergies, and noticed it stained anything white over time into grey or darker colors. I looked for alternatives. I found one that was effective without losing any of the positive effects of the original method.

Whenever removing negative energy from the home replace it with positive so that the empty energetic space is not filled with something less than positive.

1. First, remove negative energy from the home with fire (using a tealight) and the following recommended essential oils dripped onto the tealight before lighting (you can experiment with different combos but this works):

  • Frankinsence – protection and purification
  • Orange oil – powerful love energy, peace, personal power and luck
  • Lemongrass – mental clarity, breaking negative habits
  • Rosemary – protection, mental clarity, stress, strength
  • Sandalwood – protection
  • Eucalyptus – purifying and healing

Open some windows in every room for the energy to leave. Say the following words while going around your home in a counter clockwise fashion:

“Archangel Michael and Gabriel, I ask that you remove and banish all negative energies and spirits from our home with the energy of Divine Light and Love. Bless our home with your pure white light of love and protection.”

Imagine negative energies, entities in corners, cabinets and rooms leaving the home through the open windows. Say while opening windows even when not using fire and water “negative energy leaves the home, positive energy enters.” I usually visualize this happening when opening the windows and doors for the fresh air to get in.

Replace the removed negative energy with positve energy using a small dish filled with water and the following essential oils:

  • Lemon – purification, love
  • Peppermint – waking energy, enhances vitality, mental stimulant
  • Ylang ylang – brings peace, love
  • Lavender – wisdom, love, abundance, sleep aid, cleansing, healing
  • Frankinscence – luck, protection, purification

Say the following while walking around the home in a clockwise fashion. “Archangels Gabriel and Michael, Bless our home with your pure white light of love and protection.”

Be sure to check up on your feng shui as well, sometimes you can feel sluggish or “attacked” in the home if feng shui is not quite right. Use google maps to figure out your true N, E, S and W, as your home may not be facing directly North but Northwest for example. My feng shui article is here. You can also visualize God correcting for feng shui inauspicuous energies.

Repeat every two weeks if you are normally grounded and have a non-metaphysical job or don’t deal with spirituality often. If you are a psychic reader or energy healer you may want to do this more often, every 3 days or after a particularly negative reading/healing. This method uses all elements, air to move the energies in/out through the windows, water, fire and earth from the essential oils.

Other tips: 1. You can visualize cleansing your home if you are pressed for time. 2. I would also recommend visualizing or asking God to keep your neighbors’ energies, entities and energy fields out of the home for a period of time, like 24 hours, to a week. Visualize this happening with time passing until you hit 24 hours or a week for additional intention and faith energy. 3. Imagine God closing all portals not helping you in and around your property. Imagine them sealed and closed. 4. Visualize a forest in your home, grounding spiritual energy not serving you and that may be ungrounding you. I imagine trees covering the floor, a river connecting in each room and air moving out energy not serving me. Fires on the SW and South sides of the home and fire flies aiding in grounding in other areas (fire is an excellent grounder and spiritual cleanser). All of the 4 elements will help ground spiritual energy not yours and not serving you so you can feel more grounded, safe and have mental clarity. I usually pay attention to feng shui directional rules when setting up my forest.
