Weaving Color into Sacred Spaces – A guide for using color

Sacred Spaces (Gardening) is the art that uses flowers & plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas   Elizabeth Murray

 

I am doing a bit of self-promotion with this blog post. I have recently completed a five-year project in completing my second book. My original content took just a few months to write and then another 4 years to organize. Along the way, I learn photography and worked on improving my sentence structure.

 

 

 

 

I’m a plant person and to use the modern term “a creative”. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge and researching the elements of composition that go into creating sacred spaces. The elements can be location, art pieces, containers, plants, and the colors that weave through them. When looking for additional insight, I apply knowledge from metaphysical sources (the language of flowers, mythology, crystals, astrology, and Feng Shui.)

I’ve created this guide to help in developing your sacred space or looking at it with a new set of eyes. There is an extensive discussion on how colors influence you and the sacred space you seek.

 

 

 

 

In Western Astrology and herbal practices, plants are influenced by the planets that rule them. I’ve included two tools in this guide to help you in your design. A floral calendar that introduces a view of the astrological wheel with the four seasons and a sample of the plants ruled by the astrological signs. You will find a synopsis of the constellations that shine above their astrological symbol.

 

 

Complimentary complementing this wheel of walking the plants through the planets are extensive charts with their corresponding planetary ruler and the plants they rule. The plants are described by their common and botanical names. The charts are presented by edible and non-edible properties and their designation as members of the Plantae or Fungi Kingdoms.

Notes pages are available to incorporate your observations, thoughts, or sketches. I’ve included an extensive reference section for those who want to pursue more on colors, sacred spaces, and mythology of planets and their effects.

If you are interested in my guide, please contact me at silverthreadgardens@gmail.com. My guide is available as a pdf for $10 and as a hard copy for $15 (shipping to the U.S. and Canada only).

Wishing you a joyful and serene walk through your sacred space.
