Breathe new life into your space with plants
By: Marjory Mejia
Does your heart vibrate to the rhythm of gardens, plants, flora in the wild? You can develop a relationship with this realm right at home and by doing so improve the ecology of your home space. I have written elsewhere about our need to embrace our wildlife in our physical communities and evolve our masculine architecture into an architecture that is more organic, feminine, nourishing and alive. In the meantime, this is an invitation to bring and celebrate our love of nature indoors.
We have evolved in close contact with our natural surroundings, and it is therefore natural to crave the different textures, forms, sights, sounds and scents of the natural world. We too, are part of nature, although it is tempting to forget when we enclose ourselves in cold and hard spaces that are out of tune with the pulse of life.
Bringing the power of plants home.
Plants energize, soothe, inspire and heal our digitized souls. When we bring more of nature inside our space and take care of plants at home, we get so much in return for we are feeding our soul with the vitality and flow of the plant world, and nourishing our own ability to nurture life.
Plants can transform a space or place that feels barren and lifeless, into an environment that feels lush and vibrant. Plants are so much more than decorative elements; they are alive with consciousness. They go through intricate processes and are part of complex ecosystems. Plants have been here much longer than humans and have many ancient teachings and medicine for those patient enough to listen, pay attention, and take in their wisdom.
Plants enliven, invigorate, revitalize and soften any space by adding a burst of life, color, breath and energy (chi). When we invite plants into our space and life, the air we breathe is more fresh, vital and alive; we are exploring and celebrating our relationship with life!
Here are a variety of spaces brightened with the presence of plants.
If you like this post and love the flow of plants, you can follow my pinterest board Plants at home, read my article on Living Healing Gardens: Breathing life, plants dance with the secret language of flow, and read this article via kinfolk that illuminates ways to nourish your ability to nurture life if you think you got a black thumb.
We are interdependent beings sharing this pulsing breath that connects us all together. Wired in our being is the yearning and ability to commune with all life. May we let the presence of flora in our spaces and hearts, awaken, transform, and activate the flow of our souls.
