Ginger Root & Plant Spirit

Ginger, aka Zingiber officinale is flowering plant related to Tumeric and Cardamom that offers a multitude of benefits on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. The root commonly is used as a kitchen spice that has many medicinal qualities. It makes a delicious addition to many meals and desserts, particularly in Asian cooking. As a medicine it may be best known for alleviating nausea and increasing blood circulation. It also has potent anti-carcinogenic, analgesic and aphrodisiac properties.

A tea made from ginger root is an aid to digestion and can reduce menstrual cramps. It can be safely consumed during pregnancy to help alleviate early-morning sickness. A strong infusion helps fight infections and can help to reduce both chills and fevers. In a syrup it can help speed the recovery from colds and coughs. Some of the main nutrients and minerals found in ginger include Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium, Niacin, Copper and Zinc.

Dried ginger root can be stronger in flavor and action than the fresh root because it is concentrated, so less is needed. Grating a bit of the fresh root into a cup of hot water with lemon and honey and drinking this before bedtime can stop a cold in its tracks and aid in falling into a deep restorative sleep.

Astrologically, Ginger is associated with the planet Mars, due to its heating properties. It has been worn by some as an amulet to protect overall health and to attract money. As a root that generates much heat it corresponds with the root chakra, representing overall health, security and the ability to manifest whatever is needed for survival.

The flowers of Ginger grow in clusters of yellow and purple flowers that bloom from pink and white buds. Since they are an Indian Rainforest native they prefer warm climates. When worked with closely or ingested in the form of a vibrational essence the energetic properties of these flowers help to heighten spiritual will and spark creativity.

Sunflower Power!

“The earth laughs in flowers” – R.W. Emerson

Playing in a field of bright cheery Sunflowers ~ plant beings of empowerment, life force energy/Qi and integrity. These flowers relate especially to masculine aspects of nurturing, fatherhood, authority and protectiveness.

Their presence brings joy and helps many to connect with and express their inner light. Their spirits, colors and shapes have an effect that strengthens the Will – not the small ego will but Spiritual Will and intestinal fortitude to face life’s challenges full-on like a warrior.

When feeling inadequate and unable to perform in some way or bombarded by psychic attack from others – these often coincide – try connecting with the Sunflower visually, physically or by ingesting its essence. Others cannot “cord” into (impose upon) the core of one who has energetic integrity, and one with this integrity does not allow themself to inappropriately cord into others.
