Water Crystal Oracle by Masaru Emoto “Love for Humanity”

I have always loved all of the elements and elementals. I have studied a few cultures and their  ways of working with the elements. Each has helped me understand their importance for our joy, health and Spiritual Growth.

I love my Irish heritage and have learned from one Celtic tradition that there are three elements: the Sky above, the Earth below our feet and the Oceans.

Another is our Western traditions of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, with each having elementals and Devas as part of their Beingness.

Traditional Chinese  Medicine teaches us of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water, each having a season and purpose for our health.

All include Water.

I love Water’s healing and mystical qualities.

Masaru Emoto’s work demonstrates the magical and healing powers of Water in his many books and photographs. The photos of the Water Crystals, here, are from his Oracle Cards.

Water Crystal Oracle by Masaru Emoto ”Love and Thanks”

Also, his book The Healing Power of Water is an Anthology, and contains many authors in three parts: the Scientific Perspectives, Health and Healing Perspectives, and Spiritual and Mythological Perspectives. I have highlighted the article by Starhawk below.

“Waters of the World” by Starhawk:

One morning I was meditating beside a beautiful lake in Vermont, listening for whatever messages the water might have for me. ‘All water is connected,’ the lake said. ‘All water is in constant communication with all other water. The waters of the world are one—one consciousness, holding the world in liquid embrace. What you do to any part of the waters affects them all.

I hold my glass of water in gratitude and drink it. I know I have made a healing tonic.

Another simple practice I do, and receive an instant uplift from, is blessing a glass of water and pouring it in a river, creek, pond or in my bath water. I visualize it going around the world with its message of love. 

Water is LOVE, in the elemental kingdoms and here in our everyday reality.

Water enlivens and heals. It rejuvenates and gives us energy. It quenches our thirst and Loves our body. It refreshes and resets us.

To learn more, Masaru Emoto’s, The Healing Power of Water, with perspectives from 21 authors from several disciplines, will inspire you to treat this beautiful element with respect, love and care. It is still available from Amazon.com.

The Ondines from the deep ocean, the sprites of the ocean shoreline and the Ocean itself, may give you messages. Your own mystical and intuitive abilities will be enhanced by listening to Water.

Don’t you always get your best ideas in the shower?

Grandmother Earth

Recently I was looking for an item on YouTube and Pando showed up in a video on the 10 most beautiful places in Nature. It held the spot of number “One.” I was delighted to know that it is close to us, in Utah, and that we have a mini-Pando right in our backyard.

When we first moved to Idaho, I was awakened by a sound I wasn’t familiar with. I looked out my window, and it was the “quaking aspens.” Their leaves catch the wind and create a very lovely “whooshing” sound.

The photos I took last week are of our neighborhood Aspens. The bright yellow leaves are short-lived, as just last night our first snow came, and now they are mostly on the ground.

Our neighborhood aspens, by Nina Wilkins

My friend told me, before I saw the Pando video, that aspens grow in groups and are connected underground by their roots.

“If you plant them in your yard you need two or three and to be aware they will send out underground sprouts to create more,” he said.

I love seeing our resident moose-infant sitting under ours as they love to eat the bark.

Aspens are a wonderful metaphor for awakening Earthlings, People—Humanity.

They thrive on water and hold water– Love– for each other. They are all connected, though each tree is unique.

WE ARE LIKE THAT.

Two of the qualities of the Aquarian Age, which we have entered, are Teamwork and Cooperation. Aspens use those qualities to grow and thrive. A landscaper for a home near us only planted one Aspen tree, and it looks forlorn and struggling. It definitely needs a friend.

Grandmother Earth loves us.

Mother Nature is teaching us all of the time through her Flora, Fauna and the Elemental kingdoms how to thrive and be prosperous without doing harm to the Earth or Each Other.

Many of us are hearing and Learning what she has to teach, and that number is growing exponentially daily. Thank you All.

I love this quote from the Persian poet, Hafiz, “You have all of the ingredients for a wonderful life, mix them, mix them.”

Sunflowers – Part 2

Photo by Janette Nash

SYNCHRONICITY, my favorite. Synchronicity makes me smile. My friend Janette took the photos included. She told me that she and my sister, Charmaine, had been talking about Sunflowers last week, the day before my blog. I picked up their thoughts telepathically or in the ethers I Suppose, or from my high self who likes to surprise me with the knowing of the interconnectedness of us all.

Also, a few days after my last blog, Janette sent me these photos and mentioned that a lady in Hermosa Beach plants Sunflower seeds all over the town. They do well as they are wild flowers. Janette said that when she was a child, her mother helped her plant a hedge of Sunflowers and that they always make her happy.

Last week I included a quote from “Green Hope Farm Flower Essences” Venus Garden, Sunflower Spiral. Today the quote is from the Essence of the individual Sunflower, Helianthus:

“Sunflower knows that each of us is a manifestation of Divinity in physical form. It helps us to be a chalice of light.”

Flower Essences are amazing to say the least. If you would like to discover them, call Green Hope Farm Flower Essences. The people there are happy to talk with you and answer your questions.

When I was about six years old, my Sunday School teacher taught us that a ray of sunlight is never separated from the Sun. She said we are like that with our Creator, Father, Mother, God. She said we can never be separated from God’s Love. Sunflowers, Including their leaves and stem, follow the sun from dawn until dusk. They gently keep turning their faces toward the Sun. If you sit very quietly next to one you may observe this. (Or you can view with time lapse photography.)

Sunflowers remind me of that idea. They spark my inner child to remember to create Goodness. That is why I included the video below. John Denver loved Nature so much. In an interview, he said Nature always inspired him because he felt Nature listened to him and gave him his songs.

I feel the same way. “Sunshine On My Shoulder,” a cloud, a tree, a flower, or a sunset can inspire me to know I’m part of the Divine, Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature, and all that is.

Sunflowers

I’ve always loved being aware of how the Universe of Love supports us.

One way that is magical and mystical is the phenomenon of SYNCHRONICITY.

Synchronicity partly works on the Law of Attraction and partly on the principle of Divine Mystery.

Our Angels, Guides and High Selves love to surprise us with the joy of SERENDIPITY, SYNERGY, SYNCHRONICITY, sacred SPIRAL and Sunflowers.

When I saw the Sunflowers and bees and heard the Meadow Larks in the short video above I felt the joy, and bridge of love light, that I wanted to share with you.

There are at least 60 varieties of sunflowers. They are a wildflower but do really well being cultivated. 

THE SERENDIPITY happened when I was looking for a book on Amazon the same day I saw the video and the amazing book below, Basilius Besler’s Florilegium: The Book of Plants: The Book of Plants – the Complete Plates, showed up with a drawing of a sunflower. The book is now on my wish list. It’s from the 1600s about an amazing garden in Germany that no longer exists, but the beautiful rendered drawings document it. 

I then thought, “Wow, I wonder what the Sunflower essence would help us with,” and looked it up in A Guide to Green Hope Farm Flower Essences. This account below tells of their 2001 Venus Garden. My favorite.

My friend Deborah and I had just this week been talking about the idea that spiritual  growth is a sacred spiral and this Sunflower Essence helps us with that.

“Sunflower, the one to have when you need to live like a super hero; a personal reminder of our divinity. Also, Sunflower Spiral (the way they were planted in the Venus Garden) Helps us feel grounded in our Divine light. Helps us to know who is there to support us and know whom we are there to support.

“Renews and encourages us when the going gets tough.”

The SYNERGY comes in when we eat them. 

Sunflower seeds are filled with nutrition, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. Birds love them, and the sunflower seeds in commercial bird feeds fall to the ground and often result in a surprise flower.

The chart below shows the nutrients that we often don’t find in our usual diet.

Enjoy.

These little seeds are often forgotten on my grocery list, though now they will be at the top of it.

Water

Water is Love in the elemental kingdoms.

We have the ability to solve our drought by being willing to see things differently.

Each of the short videos today show that with awareness, seeing things differently and changing our habits, just a little bit, we can help our dear Mother Earth and ourselves to be healthier and more in balance.

The elementals love us and want to work with us. Just holding a glass of water in your hands, loving it and thanking it has a huge impact. Thanking the air and clear blue sky will uplift you and the sylphs of the air.

Water is all one, as are trees, air, fire and Grandmother Earth, so one small act of kindness affects the whole.

Each little stream, creek, pond, river and the ocean all have over-lighting Devas helping to heal and clear them. Ondine’s work in the deep ocean, and sprites, where the ocean waves meet the shore. There are nymphs that watch over ponds, rivers and streams. Your garden hose water also has tiny beings loving the water and helping your garden flowers.

Heaven on Earth is being established by individuals discovering that they can affect their health, homes and lives in beautiful nourishing ways by working with the Devas and Nature Sprits. The Findhorn Eco Village, in Scotland, is a thriving example of what can be accomplished by working with the Spirit of Nature and following the intuitive guidance received.

The Findhorn Garden Book, by Dorothy MacLean and the Caddys, Eileen and Peter, teaches us how to be in tune with our gardens. Also To Hear the Angels Sing by Dorothy MacLean.

I had a miraculous time when I got to visit Findhorn in 1980. The best for me was learning how to tune into and meet Pan, the Non-Localized Spirit of Nature. We hiked to the forest where there was a rushing river and sat on rocks along the banks. Our facilitator guided us in a meditation to meet Pan. We all had very unique experiences to share. All these years later that is my most vivid memory of our week-long stay.

I received the feelings and ideas of how important working with the elementals and nature spirits is for Humanity and the Earth. A wonderful book, Encounters with Nature Spirits, by R. Ogilvie Crombie, teaches and inspires us. His experiences are extraordinary and seem quite normal in the telling. He was a friend and guide for Findhorn for many years though he lived in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

I love teaching people how to see fairies. I know the flower fairies and pixies are the ones who have inspired high teas, with the beautiful painted tea cups and all of the food and very small decorated sweets, cakes, cream (fairies’ favorite) and little sandwiches that are served in the garden. Wonderful.

What is your dream of Heaven on Earth? Now is the time to create it.

Our Oceans

Hello friends.

The video above, “Spotted Dolphins,” is your two minutes of Zen for the day. Just take a few deep breaths, relax and allow the peace and joy from the Ocean and Dolphins; definitely a bridge of love-light.

One breath of nature makes the whole world kin. – Shakespeare

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world. – John Muir

More and more people are awakening and realizing we are in the Golden Age of Aquarius, where Universal Love is the primary quality permeating all life. Currently it may not look like that in our world, but little by little,  life is blossoming around and through Humanity, the Elemental Kingdoms, Animal Kingdoms and Plant kingdoms, especially Trees.

A few years ago I learned from Sananda that the great changes on our Grandmother Earth would be grass roots. From the bottom up. Not from Governments or the “top” but from individuals. Us. 

Today we can help our Oceans and all life in the Divine Waters of this incredibly beautiful planet by very simple but powerful individual acts of awareness and kindness.

When you are on your walk today, pick up the small bits of trash, as that is what birds choose as food. Cigarette butts, bottle caps and shiny foil wrappers attract seagulls, pelicans and other birds. 

September in California is beach clean up month. There are hundreds of sites that provide everything you will need to join the cleanup crew. It’s fun also. The statistics of wildlife that are killed each year due to trash are disheartening. 

I take an extra poop bag when I’m walking Lola, my daughter’s dog, so I can easily pick up the small bits of trash. When we pick up one cigarette butt, a bird might be saved. I love that feeling.

The very big thing you can do is stop buying single-use plastics. Of course keep the plastics you have in your home that you are using over and over. Single-use plastics are choking our streams, rivers and oceans. Most of these are water or beverage containers. Only 5% of all plastics are recycled.

One of my favorite and effective not-for-profit organizations is Oceana. Founded by Ted Danson and Woody Harrelson over 20 years ago, Oceana has been making great strides in helping our Oceans.

These three small actions: trash pick up, “no more” single use plastic, and supporting Oceana, are small individual actions, but multiplied by millions will make great strides in solving our Ocean Pollution. Our clean oceans can feed one billion people.

Also, a message from our Golden Dolphins: don’t forget to rest and play. With all that needs to be done on our Mother Earth, play refreshes our spirit and renews us. Our inner child needs lots of rest and silly fun to be in the creative spirit that will solve the problems at hand. Teamwork and Cooperation are the order of the day. 

Thank you for creating these bridges of love-light for You, your family and friends and our very amazing, mysterious and Divine home- planet Earth.

Before enlightenment, “Chop wood; Carry Water.” After enlightenment, “Chop Wood; Carry Water.”

A book by this name was very popular in the 1980s.  

I find its message still very true.

I have loved studying and learning from Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and the elemental kingdoms for most of my adult life.

Earth, Fire, Water and Air. I look at these elements through the lens of Divine Love. Earth is life. Fire is truth. Water is love. Air is the Elemental breath that gives rise to the connection, health and Divine Intelligence in all things.

We have entered the Golden Age of Aquarius which has as its overall governing principle, LOVE. Unconditional love, and comprehensive Divine Love.

WATER is Love in the elemental kingdoms. When you truly know this, you will want to help the waters on earth. 

The healing powers of water are a well known fact, and those powers are becoming more widely used.

Now it is our turn to give back to the waters. 

The water cycle itself is very magical and mystical. It is a closed circle and infinite in expression. A circle in Taoist Philosophy and sacred geometry is Love. The circle contains all and is empty at the same time. 

Water as a Divine Mystery is an extraordinary life giving, nourishing, cleansing, renewing gift for us all. Let’s help the waters and cherish their gift in deep GratItude.

I support and am deeply grateful for Water.Org. This organization with leadership from Matt Damon and many others, has the goal of furnishing safe drinking water for 771 million people.

You may want to support them with funding, prayers or involvement in a way that works for you.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature, the Animal Kingdoms, the Nature Kingdoms, the Elemental Kingdoms and the Waters thank you.

Dolphins

Now is the time of the Golden Dolphin.

Dolphins express and are Unconditional Love. 

Twelve times in Humanity’s history, the Golden Spirit Dolphins have wanted to share their wisdom, mysteries and secrets, but humanity was not ready. Now is the 13th time, and humanity is ready.

Water is the element of Love. Dolphins live in a sea of Love.

Masaru Emoto tells us he was guided by the Hado, or Spirit of Water, and was inspired and elevated in his thinking to create his amazing discoveries about “the memory” and communication in Water.

Dolphins

The photo above is a Crystal of water when he gave it the word “Dolphin.” Masaru Emoto created a Water Crystal Oracle. Number seven is the description for Dolphin: “Dolphins are our teachers of unconditional LOVE. Focus on them when you need to connect with this energy. Picture yourself surrounded by them in the ocean as you swim together surrounded by their bubbles of joy.”

As you look at this Dolphin “Crystal” you can see a stunning, shining visual of their essence of beauty.

Another of Masaru Emoto’s books that I love is The Healing Power of Water. It is very comprehensive, with three major divisions: Scientific Perspectives (five amazing chapters), Health and Healing Perspectives (five well documented and astonishing chapters), and part three, Spiritual and Mythological Perspectives (with 11 of my favorite chapters, including Chapter 21, “Rituals for celebrating the sacred gift of Water,” by Maril Crabtree.)

When I tune into Dolphin Consciousness and Kudos my, Seven Spirit Dolphin guides, they tell me “jump.” I always laugh when I do. Also synchronicity, serendipity and synergy are their calling cards. Because they are unlimited and live in Spirit and in body in the ocean, which is the greatest conductor of thought with feeling, telempathy is one of their gifts; they can  coordinate events for us for the pure delight of the experience.

Synergy is a Divine quality of the Golden age of Aquarius where cooperation, communication with love, and teamwork are the order of the day. Dolphins live in the Now in family groups. Their babies are their world. 

You can explore Dolphin Consciousness in your Meditations, shower, beach or pool. Their love and wisdom are always available for us. I like to see and feel Kudos in Dream time. You can have the intention of seeing them in your dreams and ask to remember your encounters. Sometimes I receive a feeling of exuberance, and other times the feeling of giant blue-green ocean waves that are carrying me out to sea; overwhelming peace, love and healing.

I’m very  grateful for Kudos with their love, guidance and inspiration telling me to “keep going.”

Flowers

Gardens have been my “go to” for peace, inspiration, hope and clarity for many decades.

The flowers, herbs, trees, shrubs and breezes have never failed me.

Sitting on a bench in a park, garden or forest I feel the presence of the Divine.

It doesn’t take long until I remember the part of our Lord’s Prayer that says “give us this day, our daily bread.” I remember the power of Now and feel and know that whatever I need for this day is at hand. Whatever I need to do this day, my intuition will guide me to do or be.

As soon as I feel that peace, I get up and start my day.

Today I’m sharing a tiny glass flower and vase that my sister, Charmaine, gave me. 

Whenever I’m not able to get to a garden, I go into my imagination or tune into the flowers in my room.

Another way I love flowers is through flower essences, books, herbs, and essential oils.

One of my favorite books is Magic Gardens, by Corinne Heline (copyright 1944). In it, she says:

“In Flowerland the whispers of heaven may become audible to the children of men; for the celestial hosts, too, have a way of ‘saying it with flowers.'”

She goes to quote this poem:

A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Rose plot,
Fringed pool,
Ferned grot–
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not–
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign;
‘Tis very sure God walks in mine.
– Thomas Edward Brown

This book describes some of  the essences of flowers that Dr. Bach discovered as healing remedies.

A modern day company that makes “flower essences” is Green Hope Farm Flower Essences.

I have used many of their essences over the years. They capture the consciousness of the flowers and put it in bottles preserved with shiso, a type of vinegar,  rather than alcohol. 

Very magical. They have made essences from flowers all over the world.

Since the practitioners tune into the consciousness of the flower, you may also receive benefits by reading the descriptions on their website. I particularly love the “Venus Garden” and the “Irish  collection.”

One thing flowers thrive on is Appreciation. Try standing next to a flower you love and tell it how beautiful it is.  Maybe say you love its color, shape and fragrance, or just send it love and thanks from your heart. You wIll have made its day. The joy will spill right over into your day.

Paradise Is Where You Are

“Wherever my travels may lead, paradise is where I am.” ― Voltaire

Esther and Jerry Hicks have been teaching the principles of deliberate creation for about three decades.

I have loved  their “Teachings of Abraham” as they are simple to apply and get results. I’ve felt that they definitely come from a higher place. After all of these years, also, their work has helped shift the consciousness of hundreds of thousands of people. 

I have used their book Ask and It Is Given in classes I have taught. My favorite part is “going up the emotional ladder” and how to shift negatives to positives, knowing how important your feelings are. Their books are all a reminder of the power of the Law of Attraction. ‘What is like unto itself is drawn.”

The little book I’m highlighting today is Manifest Your Desires: 365 Ways to Make Your Dreams a Reality, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Teachings of Abraham.

I wanted to share a couple of passages that are some of my favorites. Source is Father Mother God, or the Universe of Love light and well Being without any Religious charge on the word. I also like this little book because of the colors and Nature Art. Every day is a different color, the infinite variety of nature.

Two passages from the book:

I have found in my own experience that taking the time to go up the emotional scale until I am feeling love and appreciation makes all the difference in my day. The Hicks  teach that every morning, when you awaken have a rampage of appreciation, create your own book of positive aspects, and meditate for 15 minutes. I have found that doing this consistently makes all the difference in my awareness to move towards my good and create amazing moments and miracles.

If you haven’t worked with these principles yet, give them a try. We have entered the Golden Age of Aquarius where Love is the Power and Creating heaven on Earth is our purpose.

Have fun and joy in your unique contributions for the good of ALL.
