Garden visiting is therapeutic!

more than just scenic

From wandering around a peaceful garden and catching up with a friend over a slice of cake, to reconnecting with nature and finding inspiration – garden visiting offers the perfect opportunity to escape from a busy life. Spending an hour or two wandering around a truly beautiful meditative garden that has been lovingly cultivated by its owners is incredibly restorative and rivals any other act of self-care that is commonly promoted.

In June 2018, Solid Air Sculpture had the opportunity of a guest appearance as part of an NGS Open Gardens charity event in a seafront home in Seasalter.

The National Open Garden Scheme isn’t just about opening beautiful gardens for charity – they are very much passionate about it’s physical and mental health benefits. Visiting a National Garden Scheme garden is thus a wonderful thing when looking to de-stress and get away from it all….

On that day, we introduced a selection of unique crystal designs to the approx. 800 people who came and experienced first hand how gardens can positively impact people’s health & wellbeing. It was great fun and the artwork was extremely well received – it  showed the true joy that gardening can provide for people.

85% say garden visiting is good for the soul!

Research conducted by the National Garden Scheme has revealed that visiting a garden has a….

  • positive impact on their mental wellbeing
  • people feel happier after visiting than before
  • experience a visit as calming
  • see it as enjoyable way to spend time with loved ones
  • it aids creativity and gives you that feel-good factor 
  •   it helps you learn about plants and flowers

 

With tactile crystal pyramids and Orgonites around you, who focus the Earth’s magnetism and magnify energy, you can generate negative ions and harmonize your garden, as well as repair the cells of any living organisms. By using these metaphysical tools, you can support people’s wellbeing while simultaneously contributing to lush and healthy plant growth.

In 2018 The National Garden Scheme gave £296,000 of the total £3.1 million charitable donations to gardens and health-related projects, such as sensory gardens for adults with disabilities, or  therapeutic gardens in community centres and specialist NHS cancer hospitals.

Solid Air Sculpture is currently preparing for an exhibition on Sunday, 19th May 2019 in a friend’s garden on the seafront in Whitstable.

Fascinating Crystal gifts for Children with Autism, ADHD and Indigos

Related imageI am currently working on preparing a new range of ‘fascinators’, i.e. curious spherical sculptures filled with crystals that may help ease the symptoms of Autism, ADD and ADHD linked to Indigos, Crystals, Blue rays, Rainbow children, etc. The idea is that the colourful & magical worlds inside the sculptures fascinates them and keeps their interest.They will also get excitement out of the sculpture’s tactile & shiny quality they can interact with; and finally the crystals embedded in the artwork will calm them right down and provide relief them from various stresses.

 

Sensory Orbs

The stones I am going to use are:

1. Light and medium blue crystals – like Angelite, Sugalite, Kyanite, Celestite, Sodalite,Turquoise, Amazonite, Charoite and Blue Lace Agate. Light blue is the colour of the throat chakra and for many on the spectrum communicating with others is a huge struggle. Light blue stones may help to calm anxiety around communication difficulties, or even assist with communication capabilities.

2. Green crystals – like Green Calcite, Emerald, Malachite and Aventurine. Green is a very healing and grounding colour and many green stones have healing properties that may help with creating a feeling of calm

3. Hematoid Quartz – Image result for •Hematoid Quartz
is great for clearing energies and particularly good for those on the spectrum who find themselves feeling very foggy or confused. It enhances focus and concentration, especially helpful for those with ADD and ADHD. It brings a unique clarity and understanding, assists when Self Worth and Self Esteem are lacking, to calm anxieties, panic and/or hysteria, removing negativity but also transforming and transmuting negative energy into a positive and pure Universal light of love, highly energetic, balances the body, mind and spirit.

4. Amethyst – a beautiful purple stone which can help to connect you spiritually as well as being a calming and peaceful stones.

5. Grounding stones – like Obsidian, Smoky Quartz, Apache Tears, Black Tourmaline and any other dark coloured stones. People on the autistic spectrum are usually very much in their heads and grounding stones can be useful in helping them to get their feet on the ground and connect with the earth.
