 Plant Name: Ivy
 Symbolism:
  • Connection
  • Dependence
  • Friendship
  • Immortality
 Information: Ivy is an evergreen plant, surviving even the hardest of winters, and is immortalised in the ancient carol, “The Holly and the Ivy”. Its association with the winter comes from the bringing in of evergreen plants into places of worship to show that even in the hardest of times, life continues.

It will climb many obstacles in its search for sunlight, often supported in this struggle by neighbouring trees and buildings.

A mistaken belief is that the ivy is parasitic, drawing its nutrients from supporting plants. In fact, ivy will only draw its nutrients from the ground around its supporting plants, not from the plant itself.

Meditation: How and where can I find life when times are hard?

What obstacles do I need to overcome to find true light, and what help and support do I need to do this?

Where do I draw up spiritual nutrients in my life?
