Blessing to all

I was just checking on a couple of my plants. Trying to see what plants will be moving with the family and what plants I will have to let go with love. There are a few plants that I have that are a must for me to take with to the new house (hoping that I can find a job to get to a new house b4 being homeless in January). My most favorite plant in that my grandma sent from Puerto Rico is called the witches plant or the Hawaiian air plant. 

Obviously not native to Puerto Rico. This plant is my favorite because it is easy to grow.

In our family we wait for the the leaves to fall and then just place the fallen leaf in some soil and wait for them to grow another plant (easy right). It is believed that it is bad luck to throw away any of the leaves. But it is very good luck to give the leaves away to friends or family. So as I check on my plants I found two fallen leaves. So now I have to find a homes for them. If you want one let me know, I promise to send you one as long as you live in the U.S. since I don’t want to disrupt a foreign echo system. Just don’t post here since this is a public site. You can email me direct at so we can can the leaf to ya.

The Hawaiian Air plant is a representation of money. Just think of it as a money tree. You may meditate on each leaf representing how easy money grows in your bank account and how if shared, you are also helping those around you to be also wealthy. The plant has a wonderful

As you can read this is all about plants, that to me and many seem to be magical. Besides the Hawaiian air plant I love rue. I recently used some to cleanse my home from a spirit that was very agressive. I used it as kind of a broom.  I waved around the house, every corner and every doorway were “dusted” with a handful of the fresh leaves. Afterward I hung a small bunch over everyones beds for protection. here are the magical properties of this wonderful plant.

“RUE, also known as RUTA or RUDA, is widely held to be a Magical herb. Many people carry a pinch of RUE in a cloth bag or place it above the front door to ward off the Evil Eye and for many evil spriits. In Italy it is so highly valued for this purpose that a silver charm called Cimaruta or Sprig of Rue is worn as a protective amulet. Some folks make a tea of RUE and sprinkle it around the home for Protection or bathe in it to break spells. We are told that RUE mixed with Comfrey Root will Improve Health Matters and that RUE burned with Verbena, Mistletoe, and Benzoin can take off jinxes. Rue is also said to aid in Love Matters. Burned with Lavender Flowers and Sandalwood, it is thought to be a Lover’s Incense.

It does so much that you can’t help but love it. The fragrance is earthy and has a spicy note that some make like or truly hate so before you plant you may want to take a sniff of it before you go nuts planting. I personal love it “now”. Anything that helps me and has been a proven aid in expelling a evil spirit You learn to love…

remember to thank Gaia for all her blessings to us like the trees, flowers, grass, birds, and the bees
