I Love To Get Dirty and Work With The Earth

Recharge Energy Spell

By: The Hermit Poet


When my batteries are running low, I take off my boots and walk barefoot into my herb and vegetable garden. Wearing old shorts I get down on knees and slowly move around the garden. Clawing and working the earth I have an accumulation of dirt under my nails.

I cut, pull weeds, harvest, trim, while drifting into a meditative manual labor trance. I’m dirty, but so close to nature. I suck up the energy from the earth into my body, mind, and spiritual being. I’m alive and I can feel the strength rushing through my veins.

    I did gardening group at my mental health sessions and loved it!! I’ve always loved nature, the beauty of forests, rivers, sounds and smells even marvelled at the incredible visuals of dead animals (smooth contours of bones, colours of feathers and stages of decomposition, etc). I’m criticised for the latter but they don’t appreciate how much I too love getting dirty 😀

    There is a great peace and healing to be found spending time in nature, in our gardens, the time there, is always well spent.
