It's Monday, April 12; a '3' day, numerologically (radiate joy; bless everyone and everything!) and a 'fruit' day, biodynamically (which lasts until noon on Wednesday. There has been so much energy we are dealing with today, that it's been a bit of a process for me to assimilate it all. I do love a challenge though, so I powered through this morning (taking a short, 5-minute break at one point to lie down, I was so nauseous) and then got back to my to-do list.
Garden work was out (a bit raw and rainy), which allowed me to focus on getting the trash/recycling together and complete a few inside jobs that had fallen through the cracks.
When the knock came that my power was going to be down for a few hours, I left the Barn.
After recycling, I headed over to Grafton to the Rushton Farm. I had heard that a good way to enliven soil in the spring was to spray the gardens with a mixture of milk and molasses.
It was when Brigham mentioned that in the past, he had used honey, that the lightbulb went off for me.
It does sound biblical, doesn't it?
The 'land of milk and honey'?
I plan to 'bless' these Gardens at Dream Barn Hollow with a mixture of both, to encourage beneficial growth of all of the plants at the microbial level.
The Green Mountain Power contractors were still at work when I arrived home.
as well as rereading this terrific thread.
Now I have a bit of work on the bathroom remodeling project that I intend to complete before Brandon returns tomorrow.
I trust it goes well, considering today's energies:
"Gate 42: Increase: Gate of Growth; The 'Grail' is the Experience The expansion of the resources which maximize the development of full potential. Completing a cycle is the heart of growth.
Line 3 - Trial and error; In times of increase, mistakes are a natural part of the process. Exaltation: The energy and assertion to turn mistakes into advantages. The power to accept mistakes as part of growth. Detriment: A moodiness, that in error may succumb to brooding and unnecessary caution. Mistakes give power to moodiness and caution."
I'm very grateful for continued learning, however it shows up - and grateful that my perceptions around 'mistakes' have shifted, as I continue to develop to my full potential.
Are you being gentle with yourself during this 'heart of growth'?
Perhaps some tea with 'milk & honey'?
