Spring is always a self reflection of who I have become mostly because my birthday is in March. Urban gardening is not just a hobby it's a lifestyle that gives me hope, faith and abundance in a world of uncertainty. A seed is potential. Compost is rebirth. The sun and moon connects us all to growth and prosperity. I am a holistic health advocate who aims to help people reconnect with who they are instead of getting lost in illusion. I have gained tremendous insight from traveling. Food sharing and community has broadened my views on migration and the cultures and traditions that have maintained medicinal herbs and their use.
I will be venturing into this topic in the film DiSpell .
Gardening as mindfulness; tune into nature:
The more you grow, the more you will invite butterflies, ladybugs, praying mantis, lizards, hummingbirds and bees. Gardening is inviting a beautiful atmosphere into your environment and having the pleasure to see how we all coexist organically . This is how we come to understand the ecosystem and our interconnectedness.
Gardening is also a form of exercise. We move out of the mind and into the body. Grounding your feet in the dirt has healing properties. Placing hands in the dirt is an anti depressant.
When in direct contact with the Earth, your body becomes suffused with negative charged free electrons and equalizes to the same electric energy level as the earth.
Gardening is empowerment:
Radical self love is taking back your health by growing your own food.
