Hello Wonderful Ones!
Happy New Year!! We hope 2019 brings you mindful experiences that evolve and honour your relationship to body, mind and spirit and connect you to the true calling of the world around you; the honouring of the earth and all her inhabitants.
The numerology of this year is THREE (2+0+1+9 = 12 , 1+2 = 3). Although we can give endless cultural and belief system representations to the number 3, according to crystalinks.com, Three is the first number to which the meaning "all" was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end. The power of three is universal and is the tripartite nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. During the holidays Tom and I continued to make a move away from the traditional (i.e. commercial and super stressful) aspects of the holidays. We even noticed our emerging adult kids were happier to spend time with each other rather than partaking in the crazed buying of gifts and over-consumption of food. For the last 8 years, Tom and I have steered clear of social gatherings for New Year's Eve and instead stayed home to cook an intentional meal, move through 108 sun salutations and be meditating at midnight. Although we did not exactly follow that plan this year, we did do something similar. We were very intentional about our time - knowing that the way we welcomed in the new year and the days flanking it was setting the scene for how this year will go. So, we spent time planning Plant Alchemy's vision for the year ahead, organizing and cleaning our home, and getting outside for a mindful a walk in our favorite neighbourhood wetlands. Now we are excited to bring you up to date on what we have been influenced by of late and what we are bringing to you for 2019!!
