The name "Nandina Sacred Garden"
was given to me by my 84 year old mother on October 4, 2016 which happened to be the birthdate of my first born. Synchronicity was good that day. Mom had been talking of the Nandina Heavenly Bamboo plant for weeks on, and then it clicked that that was the name I needed for my Magical Healing Garden. She said that i need to plant this to the left of the door as this is an auspicious location for the plant. By having it there she will protect the occupants of ill health and bring prosperity.
Nandina is native to Asian countries and often seen in shrine or temple grounds as they are a symbol of peace. Often referred to Heavenly Bamboo.
My garden is called Nandina Sacred Garden as it is a magical landscape full of medicinal plants, and herbs. In the spring, one can come visit and sit in the garden and feel the healing energy from a specific plant without ever having to pull them out from her home. Free of charge.
The Ainu people always took special care when utilizing nature. Prayers and offerings or rituals to Kamui Nomi ( Plant Spirits)are conducted prior to the healing to receive blessings from the plant spirits. Ancestor spirits provide knowledge of proper medicinal herb for the treatment of the imbalance one suffers from. I also offer Palm Healing called Tus U Einkar. I am a conduit.
Still under construction, we are adding more plants and herbs that speak to us. We don't just plant any plant. They make their appearance in dreams or gifts from friends or by nature spirits

Tulasi Devi, Tulsi, or Holy Basil surrounds the main door to Yomogi House.
When the breeze of the Tulsi leaves enter your heart you will experience a change in your body and mind.
Tulasi has a spiritual significance in Hindu Mythology. She is an incarnation of the Goddess Tulsi, offering divine protection.
Many families in India keep a living holy basil plant in their homes, and tend to it with great care. Prayer Beads are often made of the woody stalk of Tulasi. Unsuccessfully grown in our climate unless in a green house I was prompted to have it painted on my wall by local artist Rhada!
We have the tinyest lotus pond out back,
