The Spiritual Meaning of the Fog Veil

Fog over field

    Fog is so mystical and beautiful.  Something is mysterious about fog.  Maybe because it is not in a solid state and it floats in the air.  Whatever opinions that we may have about fog, we all can agree that fog is mystical in its own right.  Today, I am going to discuss the spiritual meaning of fog in my own words.  You don’t have to agree with what I say about the spiritual meaning of what fog represents, I am just going to share with you readers my viewpoint about what fog represents.

    Fog is tied to the element water.  It is formed when water vapor condenses into tiny water droplets that hang in the air.  That’s basically how clouds are formed.  So when warm, humid air mixes with cold, drier air, the warm air increases its humidity level to 100% which acts as a stable platform to suspend the cold air for a certain amount of time.  Hot air rises while cold air condenses.  Hot air is created by the sun when it heats up the ground causing and creating thermals to form.  Cold, dry air condenses when being  propelled upwards by the warm, rising air from below and thus condensing and causing clouds to form in our heavens above.

So fog requires two polar forms of air: cold, dry air and warm, humid air to mix together to create fog.  This process alone is tied to the Law of Polarity, which is apart of the seven universal laws. I won’t get too deep into this universal law but Law of Polarity just acknowledges that everything has a polar opposite and that creates balance within the universe.  So viewing fog from this perspective, gives you more insight.

Fog can be really thick and hard to see through and this can be tied to illusions, chaos, confusions and mental delusions.  Illusions are tied to planet Neptune who is known as the God of the Seas.   The astrology sign tied to Neptune is Pisces and this specific astrology sign has a tendency to easily create their own illusions out of thin air just like that.  I actually have Pisces as my ascendent in my natal chart so I am speaking from my personal experience.  Because Neptune is so dreamy, it is very easy for a person who is Pisces to have trouble differentiating between what is real from what is not real, recognizing the difference between what is right from wrong.  Pisces reside in the between times and the in the in between places and this can be interpreted as residing on the border between reality and the dream world.  Pisces are in perfect balance with the universe and they naturally use both their conscious mind and subconscious mind in their day to day life.

When a Pisces person does not want to deal with the ordinary day to day life, they shove the things that they don’t want to deal with into their unconscious minds and that’s exactly what fog represents.  Fog represents the unconscious mind.  As human beings we all shove things that we don’t want to deal with into out unconscious minds.  These things that we don’t want to deal with can be our unwanted fears, shame, undigested emotions, unresolved feelings, and other things that we don’t want to face anymore.

Whenever you ignore the things that you don’t want to deal with, it doesn’t go away but it just hovers around in the background just like how fog hovers over an open field or a warm lake.  The only way you can get rid of the things that you don’t want is when you face it head on and handle your business.  That’s exactly how fog disappears.  Fog disappears when the sun rises above and burns the fog away.   The sun represents the conscious mind as it rises above the fog and it becomes aware of the things that it doesn’t want in its reality by facing it head on and burns the fog away.

I hope that you have enjoyed reading from my viewpoint about what fog represents from a deeper meaning.  All of the images in this blog post were photographed by me.  I was fortunate enough to photograph fog for the first time and it was an amazing experience to be in fog feeling its energy and photographing it at the same time.

How To Grow A Chinese Evergreen Water Plant

Chinese Evergreen Water Plant
Chinese Evergreen Water Plant

Chinese Evergreen Water plants are one of the easiest plants to grow and to take care of.  They are low maintenance plants and they don’t require a lot of watering or sunlight.  These plants can even tolerate dry air as well.  Chinese Evergreen plants can tolerate harsh conditions that most plants can’t tolerate such as poor lighting and drought conditions.  I own a Chinese Evergreen water plant in my home and I enjoy watching it plant grow.  I have watched my plant grow with successes by using a few techniques that I have researched and have came up with myself.  Today, I will share with you a few tips that I use to grow my Chinese Evergreen Water Plant.

Chinese Evergreen Water Plants love indirect sunlight.  They do not like to be in direct sunlight and this will cause their leaves to be yellow.  Make sure that your plant is not by an A/C vent or cold air draft which can cause their leaves to turn brown.  Any temperature above 60 degrees is favorable.

When you buy a vase for your water plant, make sure that it is big enough for the plants’ roots to grow in because these plants’ roots can grow quite fast when they are really happy.  It is recommended that you buy an opaque colored vase to diffuse the bright sunlight from entering the vase to prevent the spread of algae inside the vase.  I don’t use an opaque vase for my water plant but instead, I use a clear vase and because of that I have to constantly clean out the vase once a week and refill the vase with water.  I am really picky about buying vases for my plants because I find that it’s harder for me to find the right sized opaque vase for my plants so I find the clear vases are easier to find in local stores.  Light can easily penetrate a clear vase than an opaque vase.  If you use an opaque vase, you don’t have to clean out the vase as often as you would a clear vase.  Go with what works for you.

Once you find your vase, you have the option to buy some small pebbles from your local arts and craft store.  I place the pebbles in the bottom of the vase and I find that the pebbles adds more character to how you plant looks in your room.  It reminds me that the water plant is in its natural element with the rocks underneath the plant and the plant is somewhere in a small body of water growing.  It’s just a creative idea.  When I clean out my vase once a week, I also have to clean off the pebbles to make sure that they are clean.  Also rinse off the plants’ roots in the sink to clear off any debris from the plant.

The key to watering these plants is to not overwater them.  If you overwater them, then it can lead to root rot. This is why I have came up with a strict watering schedule for my plant.  On the day that I clean out the vase, I use Alkaline water to water my plant.  I also mists the leaves with Alkaline water as well and I spray on the top side of the leaves and bottom side of the leaves.  I just use a spray bottle and fill it with water and I spray the leaves. Spray the plant’s stalks as well.

 

I usually start cleaning out my plant’s vase in the beginning of the week and towards the middle of the week, I mist the plant’s leaves again like I did in the beginning of the week.  So I water and clean out the vase once a week and I mist the leaves twice week.  I mist the leaves on the same day as I clean out the vase and I mist the leaves again towards the middle of the week.  Another good practice to incorporate is when you notice an accumulation of dust building up on your plants’ leaves, grab a rag or wash cloth, immerse it in water and wipe it over the leaves to clean off the dust from the leaves.  You can do this once or twice a week.  This is my water plant weekly routine and I have came up with it myself.

The most important part about taking care of your plant is to have fun with it and enjoy watching your plant grow each day.  When you plant begins growing a new leaf, you are growing in some area in your life.  The way that you take of your plant is a reflection of you.  I find it important to find some way to bring nature into your home and this will help you connect with nature on a deeper level.  This alone has inspired me to create this blog post.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this blog post and that you’ve been able to learn something new.  I will be posting a new blog post every Sunday at 7 p.m.; so look forward to the next one! Have a Great Day!!

Franklintown Loop Trail Review at Gwynn Falls Leakin Park, Baltimore, Maryland

Forest View of Franklintown Loop Trail
Forest View of Franklintown Loop Trail

Gwynn Falls / Leakin Park is a large park.  It is the largest, urban wilderness park east of the Mississippi River and it is 1216 acres long.  You can’t explore this whole park in one day.  Trust me,  I have tried!  This park is operated by the Baltimore City Recreation and Parks so if you live in the Baltimore, MD area, you should come visit this park.  I have explored a few trails of this park and I want to discuss my thoughts and opinions about each trail that I have hiked at Gwynn Falls Leakin Park.

The Franklintown Loop trail is quite long.  I hiked through the whole trail last week and I saw some cool things along my hike.  I also spotted and photographed an Eastern Box Turtle while hiking on this trail.  It was so awesome to see an Eastern Box Turtle on this trail because this turtle species numbers are declining in their range.  Eastern Box Turtles live in eastern United States, and they prefer living in moist, mixed forests with streams or ponds nearby, marshes, meadows and forest edges.  Habitat loss and drainage of wetlands is the main reason for their declining numbers.  I occasionally spot these turtles in different nature parks that I visit in Maryland.  You can check out my turtle picture that I took on this trail on my Instagram page: @TheJBPhotos and my website: www.TheJBPhotos.co.

I have spotted many deer on this trail so be careful around rutting season when buck deer are ready to mate.  Buck deer tend to be more aggressive around this time of year so be careful and read their body language when you encounter them up close.  I have also heard a Red-Shouldered-Hawk calling and screaming multiple times in the distance.  This hawk has such a beautiful vocalization.  I have witnessed a Pileated Woodpecker up close while I was hiking on this trail as well.

The Franklintown Loop trail has many bumpy rocks on it, so I caution you to be very careful when hiking on this trail.  Wear very comfortable hiking shoes and boots that grip the ground well.  This trail has beautiful views of the forest so I definitely recommend taking a few landscape pictures while you are hiking on this trail.  As I mentioned previously, it is pretty rugged with the bumpy rocks and all, but I’ve enjoyed my hike!  All images used in this blog were photographed by The JB Photos.

Why Do I Love Nature?

I’ve loved nature since I was a baby!  My mom has always said that I was intrigued by nature at an early age. She told me that on trips to the mall with my mom, as a baby, I would cry instantly; but when she took me outside, I would stop crying.  It’s interesting for me to hear this now, and this alone shows me how attuned I am to the natural world.  Growing up, I always had a strong appreciation for plants and animals. When I was younger, I would take small bugs from outside and bring them inside my house to study. Whenever I see a spider crawling inside any room at home,  I have the tendency to stop what I am doing and study it.  Nature is so interesting, simple, and complex all at the same time.

My favorite animals are mainly predatory animals such as birds of prey, herons, egrets, wild canines such as foxes, wolves and coyotes. I love snakes, cats, sharks and spiders as well. I love all animals; but the predatory animals are my absolute favorites!  There’s something about predatory animals that I admire most.  I love how focused they are as they hunt.  I grew up watching nature documentaries and television programs such as “The Jeff Corwin Experience“, and “The Crocodile Hunter” and I’ve looked up to Jeff Corwin and Steve Irwin in terms of nature and wildlife conservation.  Their teachings really resonated with me and now in writing this blog post, I see how I can share my knowledge about the natural world to people around the world.

Today, I am a Nature and Wildlife Photographer.  I currently reside in Maryland and I enjoy visiting nature parks in the Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area. Because I live in a tristate area, I get the benefit of visiting different nature parks and exploring different cities and states to photograph different landscapes, plants and animals.  My favorite nature parks to explore in Northern Virginia are The Great Falls , Shenandoah National Park.

In Washington, D.C., I love visiting the C & O Canal National Historic Park which is 184.5 sq. miles long and expands between West Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C.  I always visit this park in D.C. because it’s more convenient for me.  Another park that I love to visit in the District is the National Arboretum.  There are so many different flowers, plants and animals to see there.  It’s is definitely worth visiting, in my opinion!  In Maryland, I enjoy visiting Lake Needwood, Rock Creek Regional Park.  The view of the lake at this park is amazing!

I have so many great memories at each of these parks, and I will post all of the parks I frequent in the DMV area in the Bibliography section of my blog post below.  I hope that you have enjoyed learning about my love of nature and the parks I frequent.  I decided to keep it short sweet this time, but feel free to reach out to me with any questions!  Be sure to look out for my next blog post!  Have a Blessed Day!!!
