Sobs racked through me as I sat on my bed tissues surrounding me. My mind went though all the things that I had told him. My parents, my job, all of my feelings for Peter—or him. Tears ran down my face. How could he do that? A knock came at the window and I looked toward it seeing Peter outside in his spiderman suit.
“Y/N please.” He begged. I stood up walking toward the window. “Just listen to me—” I reached up drawing the blinds over them. “Y/N…” I heard him trail off. More sobs racked through me as I dropped on my pillow. More knocks came from the window. I swallowed leaning over starting my stereo butting on “Fuck you” by Cee Lo Green. I turned it loud, louder than normal. I closed my eyes as I continued to cry feeling sick. There was yelling outside my room and a pounding came from my door.

Im tired of skinny white boys being the only gay couples in anything, like give me some black boys in love, give me trans boys of colour holding hands, give me dark skinned asian boys in love, give me some chubby boys holding hands, give me gay relationships where the boys have something other than a chiseled face and clear skin, give me gay relationships with boys who have acne and freckles and stretch marks, give me something else than skinny white boys making out shirtless p l e a s e
So I’m a spirit worker, and though I’ve only been practicing a little bit over a year, I’ve worked with many different spirits with most of them being plants. This just comes from my own personal experience, so you don’t have to take this as law.
Different kinds of plants have different personalities (obviously). And as each plant has their own unique personality, generally they tend to be similar to other plants of the same type: cacti, succulents, vines, herbs, flowers, even going down to specific types such as lavender, pine trees, orchids, etc. And then, how they react to communication depends on what stage they are in: seedling, middle, adult, etc.
In general, plants tend to be fairly slow with communication. And they generally don’t use words. The plants i have worked with preferred sending general feelings and images of what they were trying to communicate. So be patient with yourself while working towards that communication. Whenever you try communication, start by giving a small offering. It can be elaborate, it can be watering it, spreading fertilizer (eggshells are good, a bit of sugar, stuff like that) around it, weeding around the roots, and small stuff like that. Introduce yourself, and just start talking. Explain what your day was like and what you did. You can sing to the plant, they tend to love that. Seedlings are more likely to talk very quickly to you, while old plants tend to take longer. The time frame can be from a couple of hours to a couple weeks depending on the spirit. If you want to create a relationship with the spirit, you’re going to have to communicate with the spirit regularly. This process will take a while as it would trying to improve any friendship.
After you’ve introduced yourself to the spirit, it’s time to create a friendship! Giving them small gifts/offerings is a great step. Spending time with them will also help with that. It doesn’t all have to be communication, you can read books aloud to them, watch movies with them, or anything else of that sort. Find out their name! Each spirit will have their own name, much like we do. Some of them are really hard to spell and/or pronounce so I won’t be giving any examples here. After building that friendship, you can do most anything you want! You can have them assist you with spells, amplify your energy, and other such things. Keep in mind that the amount of energy that the spirit will have depends on their vessel, the plant. The larger the life force, the larger the amount of energy that you can borrow is.
Dealing with death:
Now, most of the plants I have worked with have been seedlings, and because I’m not perfect in the slightest many of them have died. For me, dealing with the dead plant is a ritual to honor the spirit as it passes into a place where I haven’t been able to communicate with it yet. I give it back to the earth (bury it if I can, or just leave it in a place where it can give back to the earth. It gets a small funeral service, stating what they did for me, what I loved about them, that they will be missed, etc. Before you leave them there give them a small offering to help it’s passage, water, fertilizer, eggshell, etc. This isn’t necessary, but it is respectful and a good way for the spirit not to be mad.
Joyce, this is Hawkins, okay? You wanna know the worst thing that’s ever happened here in the four years I’ve been working here? Do you wanna know the worst thing? It was when an owl attacked Eleanor Gillespie’s head because it thought that her hair was a nest.
