Best Plants for Mind, Body & Soul -part 1

best plants mind body soul

Our physical needs often reside at the forefront of our daily priorities via rituals that include showering, preparing meals, cleaning, and sleeping.  Mental and spiritual needs usually take a back seat.  This makes sense, of course, being that the effects of neglecting a physical necessity results in fast and unpleasant reactions. If you don’t eat you can expect to feel lightheadedness,  irritability, lack of energy, that will only worsen until you ingest some proper food.

The effects from a spiritual or mental imbalance are not always as tangible.   But a mental or spiritual imbalance can feel just as awful as not eating or on the flip-side, a properly balanced meal or spiritual foundation can feel as rewarding as the most delicious meal.

In order to a achieve a well-balanced lifestyle that allows for maximum enjoyment and fulfillment, the spiritual and mental aspects of one’s self should not be neglected.  And the good news is- there’s at least one simple step you can take to start feeding your mind and spirit some much needed nutrients.

For centuries, people have turned to the healing properties of a wide spectrum of plants that benefit both spiritual and mental health. It cannot be overstated that the importance of plants to humans is beyond measure. Were it not for plants, humans could not exist on this planet.

Plants provide the air we breathe and the food we eat, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Plants provide countless medicinal functions including strengthening our immune systems, ridding our body of toxins, fighting disease, and much more.

Today, we will explore the idea of using everyday plants & gardens to feed, heal, and grow both your mind and spirit.


Ti (Hawaiian Good Luck Plant)

The Ti is a gorgeous plant common in such places as Hawaii and is said to bring luck along with its presence. Any Ti aficionado will be quick to tell you, however, be careful which variety of Ti select.

Despite its beautiful colors, a red Ti is thought to harbor bad luck and negative energy.  When I was growing up, one of our gardens shared a properly line with a very disagreeable neighbor.  A red Ti would be a great choice to plant on the far property line with such a neighbor.  You can enjoy the beauty of the plant while your pesky neighbor bears the bad luck. You can steer clear of a red Ti entirely and stick with a green Ti.  The green variety is said to bring positive vibes and protection along with its inherent beauty. Not a good choice for pet owners as Ti plants are poisonous plants and are especially dangerous to dogs and cats.


Wax Plant (Hoya Carnosa)

Most people are curious to know if they are compatible with someone else. It can be our significant other, boss, friend or family member.

We find this out by reducing our ruling number to a single digit. Remember: our Ruling Number (aka Life Path Number) is our complete birthdate reduced to a single digit. As long as you know the person’s Ruling Number you are ready for some interesting info. There are many combinations to finding compatibility so over the next few blogs I’ll break the numbers down individually.

Our first number, of course, is 1.

We will explore number one with the rest of the numbers 2 through 9.

Leadership is key with this combination. Since you both are aggressive and both want the same things, working together in harmony is the lesson here.

1 with 2

Number 1 is the leader here and number 2 is the support. This is a winning match because you compliment each other.

1 with 3

With one’s leadership abilities and three’s ability to turn ideas into real success, these two can have an extremely fruitful relationship. If they both stay focused anything can happen.

Even though ones are strong on leadership they are also strong on impulsiveness. Fours are cautious which can be irritating to a one.

Both of these people are very active and have original minds. They make a great team with the one originating the ideas and the five selling them. They have a great capacity to make a good living together.

1 with 6

People with a number six love art, beauty and the “good life”. The number one person is capable of delivering these luxuries as long as they don’t insist on having their own way all the time. A cooperative effort and this team can do great things.

These two people can make a spiritual connection. Ones need to give sevens the space needed for privacy and thought. Sevens can help with the impulsivity of ones. Together these numbers can make a powerful team.

1 with 8

Both numbers here are aggressive and used to things going their way. They would have to cooperate or become arch rivals. They can either do great things together or bring ruin to each other.

This is an interesting combination. Nine people have great vision and wisdom while one people are original and inventive. Together they can make for a very successful partnership doing great things.

Numerology: Power & Master Numbers

This time we are going to talk about the three Power numbers otherwise called the Master numbers 11-22 and 33.


The Master Numbers

We do not break these numbers down to a single digit. We refer to them as 11/2, 22/4, and 33/6 because they contain aspects of their single digit counterpart.

11/2

We already talked about how elevens have exceptionally high levels of intuition and spirituality. These are the people who are the guides of mankind. They guide us into lives of compassion and awareness. The eleven also has aspects of the number 2 which includes charisma and leadership. The number two is a duality of intuition and inner conflict. The negative side of this is that not many elevens live up to this great responsibility. They are shy and have a lot of nervous energy. This can give way to fear and self-doubt.

Elevens make great teachers, artistic performers and social workers.


22/4

Twenty-two is not only the most powerful of all numbers but the most successful. The number 22 encompasses the all or nothing. Twenty-two’s can become the masters of anything they are committed to or they become lazy drifters. Remember, 22 are double 11 and they have the practical aspects of 4. Four’s express themselves best in the material world. What a great combination! They possess an immense potential to achieve with intense productivity. The number twenty-two is rare occurring in a small percent of the population.

Twenty two’s make great leaders in all aspects of life, artists, diplomats and architects.


33/6

The number 33/6 is not concerned with self-advancement. It is all about doing well for mankind. This brings with it great responsibilities and leadership skills. These people are all about serving and helping the largest number of people. The down side of this is their being able to discern where, when and whom to help or they become overwhelmed. Remember, 33 combines 11 and 22 all of which are rare numbers. 33/6 also encompasses the number 6 which is about responsibility especially to others. It also represents a take charge attitude along with loyalty. There are always two sides to every number. The negative side to 33 is to become too focused on your own agenda and to care less of others. People born under 33 make great spiritual leaders, teachers and artists.
