In Martha M. Tyson’s wonderful book: The Healing Landscape: Therapeutic Outdoor Environments, she perfectly sums up what is so essential about gardens:
“The garden or landscape is connected to people in a way that is uniquely healing in its essence. The restorative qualities of gardens span the human spectrum and have no social, cultural, or ethnic boundaries. Gardens may contain elements that are specific to culture, climate, or time; however, the simple truth of their existence reflects the universal for human interaction with nature, with humans as stewards of the land.”
Tyson is talking about one of three benefits to human healing that gardens can provide.
The first benefit is the restorative power of enjoying a completed garden.
The second wellness benefit is a prequel to the completed garden: the therapeutic effects gained from the process of gardening.
Anyone spending serious time gardening will feel the amazing positive effects that come from the gardening process. The satisfaction coming from gardening and major stress reduction are two great reasons for gardening. And once the gardening process is completed, the wellness benefits of a completed garden kick in!
The third benefit is The Healing Garden.
Plants and flowers offer tremendous healing benefits that include rebuilding immune systems, detoxifying organs and tissues, and even slowing the aging process.
And there are many ways you can bring plants into your home and lifestyle, using them safely and effectively to enhance your wellbeing.
You can learn more about the benefits of healing gardens from Dr. Danica-Lea Larcombe, who has a background in environmental health and has completed a PhD on biodiversity and human health through the Centre for Ecosystem Management at Edith Cowan University. Her "study from home" MasterClass starts each first Monday of the month.
Reconnecting with nature is such an important activity for all of us in today’s stress-filled environment, and gardening and gardens (especially healing gardens) can lead us to health and happiness in several significant ways.
Why Reconnecting to Nature is so important for our Lives
Nature is important to our lives. It is not only adding beauty to what we see or adding scents to what we smell, it is also adding life to our cells and keeping us healthy.
We are made by nature and we are nature but we forgot it!
We are born in Nature, we are living on a planet called Earth, this planet is covered by Nature, it breathes the same air, drinks the same water and we need all fruits,vegetable, flowers and plants to feed us with the best things they feed themselves from the Earth. They are made for us to eat and to regenerate ourselves.
Without them, we would die.
Our own DNA depends on Nature’s DNA.
Since ancient times, many civilizations have realized the healing qualities of gardens. The earliest hospitals in the Western world were infirmaries in monastic communities where herbs and prayer were the focus of healing and a cloistered garden was an essential part of the environment.
Restorative gardens for the sick, which were a vital part of the healing process from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century, provided ordered and beautiful settings where patients could begin to heal, both physically and mentally. These were often part of hospitals prior to the mid-twentieth century and are regaining popularity now.
With the pace and the stress of modern life, its hard to find such a place, but your garden can be your own place of refuge and recuperation, a restorative landscape that’s a place for contemplation and a place that offers the chance to revive in the peace, serenity and beauty of nature.
The Frequency Level of Everything
Everything has its own frequency and plants and nature vibrates together with the same frequency. This is why we need to Reconnect with Nature. .
We need to reconnect the frequency of the original DNA of the plant to recover our original DNA frequency.
Cancer is a disorganisation of the cells that can be restore by a correct DNA frequency also this is the reason nobody found the remedy for cancer, no investment were made to research the frequency that could cure cancer. This frequency is in original seed plants.
This frequency can be found in nature, not in synthetics; this frequency is at the tip of your fingers.
