Gaia was the Greek embodiment of Mother Earth and was fabled to be one of the original gods, Chaos being the first. Though known by many names throughout the history of mythologies, Mother Earth is a universal symbol of growth, nurturing and healing. Everything we need to sustain life, creativity and joy are given freely to us by our beautiful Mother Earth. Food, shelter, water and medicinal plants support our daily needs and the beauty and splendors on this planet provide more than enough to spark wonder and joy in every moment.
Gaia’s Garden Spirit Vessel is a celebration of the beauty found in nature as well as the backyard gardens we cultivate. Through nurturing a garden, we & Mother Earth work together to grow, nurture and heal our souls. Perhaps you will fill it with her small, enchanting gifts… shells, feathers, acorns… or other mementos that speak to your own inner spirit.
