I'm actually not one of those witches who naturally senses energy or 'vibrations' but recently I have been using what I think would be visualization using colour magick.
Here is what I mean:
If one of my plants is not doing well, I would cup it gently in my hands and imagine a glow of light green (earth and healing) as well as some light pink (loving emotions) while sending the intention of helping the plant grow and heal. This generally seems to work over a few days, sometimes accompanied with singing or verbal encouragement.
I have used this technique in other things too: To increase concentration in school (online now!) using passionflower tea and imagining a faint orange and yellow hue around to keep me focused and to my best work, or to send out love and trust to one of the stray cats that lives in my garden.
Any thoughts on this? Is it some kind of energy? Please help with any advice or tips.
