Daily Chakra Healing (Part 5) Thursday – Heart

Thursday: Heart

Today’s focus is abundance not hording. The heart is the great connector between the chakras as the midpoint of those seven energy centers between us and all of life. When chakras are healthy, the heart has the support of the entire system, enjoying, for example the safety of the root and the vulnerability of the navel, which allow the heart to remain open and connected. This connection helps us perceive opportunities and support, and this generates trust that we will have enough without hording. Today, get curious about areas of anxiety and worry, areas where you feel you have to hold on to or prevent change for fear of loss. Can you sit with your uncomfortable feelings while simultaneously tapping into self-love? Shower yourself with green or pink light and bathe your worries in love. Does the addition of heart energy give you a glimpse of previously hidden options or ideas, and if so, can you take the next sense towards them?

How to Fertilize Roses Co-authored by Lauren Kurtz

Growing beautiful roses requires care and lots of nutrients. You can grow your roses best with a food balance that’s high in nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as some secondary nutrients and minerals. Natural fertilizers provide steady nutrients to the soil long-term, and there are many types to choose from. Chemical fertilizers are fast-acting and need only 1-3 applications for the year. Many rose gardeners prefer to combine the two types of fertilizer for the best results.

Learning to Use Natural Fertilizers

    Use natural fertilizers before planting and before your rose’s first bloom. For new and small rose plants, it’s best to use organic fertilizers to avoid burning their delicate roots. Add nutrients to the soil before planting your rose bush, and after you first plant them, with natural fertilizers. Wait until after they bloom the first time before using any chemical fertilizers.[1]

    • In early spring, before roses come out of dormancy and start to bloom, using natural fertilizers is the best way to get roses accustomed to new nutrients in the soil.
    • Look for fertilizers labeled organic at a local garden supply store, or use the recipes in the homemade fertilizers section.

    Apply natural fertilizers every 4 weeks during high growth season. To keep a steady amount of nutrients flowing into your roses’ soil, use natural fertilizers every 4 weeks from early spring until 3-4 weeks before they enter dormancy. Work whatever fertilizer you choose into the upper soil levels.[2]

    • Spread solid or granular natural fertilizers in a circle around the top of the soil about 6 in (15 cm) from the base of the bush and work it into the top 2 in (5.1 cm) of soil with a small cultivator.
    • Liquid natural fertilizers can be poured in a circle about 6 in (15 cm) from the base of the bush.

    Stop all fertilization 35-40 days before the first frost date. Applying fertilizers too late in the growing season could cause young, soft growth that’s easily damaged by the first frost. To encourage your roses to begin preparing for winter dormancy, stop fertilizing them 35-
