Since I have been on this beautiful spiritual journey, I am always checking out new (to me) modalities. I was recently introduced to the Rose of Jericho aka Resurrection Plant. I thought the whole concept was pretty cool, so I bought 2 of them, one for myself and one for my grandson. They arrived when he was at my home and we were so excited and curious to see it grow and that we did not follow the spiritual aspect of it all. The second time, I went solo (grandson wasn’t visiting), I instinctively went the spiritual path and followed these steps……..
By no means do I have a green thumb! That is one of the many reasons I was intrigued with the Rose of Jericho there’s not much you can do wrong when taking care of this spiritual mystical plant. Pretty much anything magical, energy driven (which is all things) and spiritual I have to have.
The Rose of Jericho goes from seeming death to life so magically, that it’s not surprising to discover that it is believed to have magical qualities. Believers in Hoodoo say that this plant will bring you prosperity if you add five coins to the water you use to make it unfurl. They leave the plant in the water for a few days before brushing the water onto windows and doors to let prosperity in.
In spiritual practices, its believed to have these properties/spiritual energy:
~ Brings Peace, prosperity & abundance to your home or business
~ protects against illness and all types of negative energies & vibrations
~ some people like to use the water as a type of holy water to bless people and/or objects
When you purchase the Rose of Jericho, its in the same manner as you treat your crystals. Obviously this grows so you want to make sure you have a bowl large enough, right away for me I decided to use a large bowl from my mama’s china set to feel connected to her (she passed 10 years ago). Just something that resonated with me, so of course I went with it. Keep in mind they open up quite wide at times.
~ Hold the plant in your hand for a few minutes before placing it in the bowl of choice, take a few minutes to feel the energy coming from the plant. Use the modality you like working with best whether it be in prayer or meditation, give affirmations to the spirit of the Rose of Jericho. After you use the modality of choice place it in your special bowl.
~ Add water, you can use holy water, river water, spring water, lake water or my favorite is to put spring water out in the full moon for “moon water” I would not recommend salt water, not sure what the exact effects would be but if the plant is already dry, why add salt? *If you use warm water the transition is much faster.
~ Light a special candle near the plant (any type/size of candle is perfect (go with your intuition) be mindful of the plant & candle being too close to one another.
~ Do not leave the plant in water for longer than one week in a row.
~ Depending on what you are looking for place item(s) in your Rose of Jericho, I chose abundance, therefore I placed some coins & a citrine crystal on her. If its love your looking for perhaps a crystal heart rose quartz, if its health perhaps a picture of you healthy, think of it the way you think of doing grid work with crystals.
~ After leaving the plant in water for one week, give your rose of jericho a vaykay for at least 2 weeks to dry out again.
USES FOR THE WATER……
Instead of letting all that energy from the Rose of Jericho go down the drain here are some ideas to use it for…
~ Sprinkle the water around your house/business/car for a generalized blessing and/or good fortune.
~ sprinkle on the back of your door for added protection or if your religious make a sign of the cross on the back of the door.
~ wash your floor or add to your bath water for money drawing & abundance work
~ Use as your very own “holy water” to keep out evil spirits & unwanted energies; add to a spray bottle and spray around the house or wherever you are looking to accomplish this task
~ Bless your jewelry
