Spring Planning: A Meditation & Medicine Garden

Meditation Rock

See that big rock down by woods edge?  It’s a solid piece of quartz, as are all the babies around it.  That’s my future meditation and medicine garden, which I plan to build up come Spring.

The big rock faces East and has a perfect little depression on the top for my behind to rest comfortably.  The babies in front make perfect stepping stones up to it.

When the foliage is gone in the Fall and early Spring, I have often sat there early in the morning to meditate as the sun comes up.  My plan is to clear some space and plant a medicine garden all around it so I can have access all through the Summer too.

Here is a view from atop the rock.  Directly in front there is a huge rose quartz stone embedded in the ground.  If you look carefully you can see the Stone Person in it.

Here is a closer view from a few weeks ago before all the foliage was gone.

It’s a powerful place, and I look forward to spending a lot of time there.

    How wonderful to have access to quartz! My favourite stone circle in Cornwall is Boscowen-un and it has one quartz stone. In Duloe, another Cornish village, they have the smallest stone circle in Cornwall and all their stones are quartz. I expect you know that white quartz is for healing and rose quartz is for love. If you use your time on the stone for distant healing as well as meditation you could attune the stone to augment your healing. If you’d like to know more about the practicalities of distant healing, let me know and I’ll send you the handout I give to my student healers.

    It’s been there waiting for you Tammy. I’ll look forward to hearing about what will be your personal relationship with the stone and the area. I go by the thinking that despite generic offerings, every part of nature is as individual as we are.
