"What I've done is create sacred space in my yard - a garden that enables me to move into the spiritual realms of my life."

Sue's Garden Tips

1. Include water sounds in your garden - chimes or a water fountain - to help shift your consciousness as you work or sit and meditate.

2. Prune your garden as necessary. For me, removing dead branches and leaves is a metaphor for letting go of and trimming away what has died in my life.

3. I use Miracle Grow in my garden - my plants love it and I love the name!

4. Use at least two inches of mulch on your flower beds to keep the soil moist and stop the weeds from growing. I think of it as putting a lovely blanket on my beds.
