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.

Divine Love

March is Women’s History Month.

Currently we have 7.9 billion people living on our incredible Grandmother Earth. Thank you to all mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers. Your stories are amazing and filled with love, or we wouldn’t be here.

I want to thank my mother, Charlotte, and my grandmother, Ruth. 

Today, I would like to highlight Mary Reynolds’ work. She has been a positive force for Mother Nature and the Elemental Kingdoms for the last 25 years. She has been named in the top ten of landscape designers in the World.

You can learn of her story in the movie Dare to be Wild.

Her work has progressed over the years to where she is now being a Nature Guardian. She teaches people to grow their own food, nurture the landscape they already have and create an Ark where part of their land is untouched and left wild.

I learned of  this concept when I visited Findhorn, in Scotland, in 1982. A portion of their farm land is left wild, and people don’t even walk through that part of the garden. Over the last 30 years Findhorn has developed into a thriving Eco-Village. (See the Findhorn Garden book and To Hear the Angels Sing, by Dorothy MacLean.)

Mary is a way-shower for sure. 

I have watched the movie several times and am inspired by her courage and for not giving up.

Her story is one of accomplishing a dream that appears to be impossible and against all odds.

It’s never to late to add a chapter to your own unique story that is magical, fun, creative, joyful and miraculous.

We definitely can create heaven on Earth, NOW.

Encounters With Fairies, Fauns and the Spirit of Mother Nature

Today for your summer reading and joy I want to share one of my favorite books, Encounters with Nature Spirits: Co-creating with the Elemental Kingdom, by R. Ogilvie Crombie. This book just came to me a few months ago as an unexpected gift. I love the Divine right timing as this beautiful story has reminded me in a very deep way of the power, joy and contribution we can all make to healing our Earth Mother when we co-operate with the Spirit of Nature.

In 1981, I had a magical journey to Findhorn. My friend Marilyn, who has an incredibly spectacular garden in the Santa Cruz Mountains in California, and I decided to travel to the North of Scotland to visit the Findhorn gardens we had read about.

As is inevitable in spiritual growth and adventure journeys, our experience of the gardens was not at all what we had expected. We didn’t know that the emphasis, at that brief period, was not on the garden, but on spiritual and community development. The gardens were integrated into the emphasis of co-creating with the spirit of nature. It was early March, and where the garden had been was dirt and divisions and paths made with stones.  We were disappointed, to say the least. That disappointment dissolved quickly, as we were to have some very amazing encounters with very amazing people and nature spirits.

One day, we were guided to an enchanting spot in a forest near a rushing stream. Our leader instructed us to become still and, within our heart, invite Pan, the non-localized spirit of nature, to come and visit us. I was hoping to have a visual of Pan, though that didn’t happen. I did have an overwhelming feeling of my love of nature and a powerful feeling of being connected to that place. Each of our group of about 20 participants had unique experiences, which we shared over dinner.  

That experience was 40 years ago, though this wonderful story by ROC, R. Ogilvie Crombie, has brought it all back very vividly into my memories.

You can travel with ROC, and meet Pan, Fauns and Nature Spirits in this wonderful true story. His writing and accounts make the lands near Edinburgh, Scotland, including the Royal Botanic Gardens and Findhorn, come alive.

This treasure, came to me to inspire me to dedicate my energies to the healing of Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature. 

I hope you will enjoy the adventure ROC takes you on. You may even have the wonder of meeting Pan.

Why Manifest Your Good?

Because manifesting is fun, creative and loving.

Freesia and the most fragrant rose by Nina Wilkins

Manifesting allows the universe to surprise you with goodness that is meant just for you.

One thought I received from Sondra Ray and Leonard Orr was that everyone was born with a main pattern to heal: the scarcity belief of not enough, failing to get even, birth trauma, the parental disapproval syndrome and lack of self-love, to name the main ones.

In my early spiritual seeking I realized the scarcity belief was something I needed to transform and heal. That quest has led me to a myriad of teachings, books, travels and healings. One skill I have learned along the way is direct manifestation for what I need or want. As I have mentioned in previous blogs, gardens and flowers have healed, inspired and brought me peace.

One such garden is in Findhorn, an intentional community, which, now, more than 33 years later, is an Ecovillage. Findhorn was founded by Eileen and Peter Caddy (The Findhorn Garden: Pioneering a New Vision of Man and Nature in Cooperation) and Dorothy Maclean. The amazing thing they accomplished was to found a community by listening to their spiritual guides, Divas, and the Spirit of nature. Findhorn is located on the North Sea in Scotland. When Eileen and Dorothy received spiritual guidance to plant a garden, they thought they were not hearing correctly. That location is cold, windy and with beach sand for soil. They channeled the guidance and Peter carried out the instructions. With just these three and their children having the courage to follow their guidance they grew plants, trees and vegetables. The garden was so amazing it drew gardeners from Edinburgh to find out how this was possible and ask “what were they doing?”

The principles were all around working with the Spirit of nature and the Divas, or Earth Angels. In working in this way they learned how to directly manifest what they needed for themselves and the garden. Soon, they attracted a new member to their team, David Spangler, who has since written several books about manifestation.

The fun part for me about learning to manifest is feeling loved by the Universe. Now, today, Abraham, through the Hicks materials, is teaching thousands of people how to manifest their desires. I love their thought that it is as easy to manifest a castle as a button. Also that in 17 seconds you can feel better by directing your thoughts to ideas that make you feel good.

Another very powerful teaching is by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, Creating Money: Attracting Abundance.

These thoughts and beliefs have worked for me over the years:

  • “Everything is at hand.” – Saint Germaine
  • All Substance is Spiritual. “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.” – Mary Baker Eddy.
  • “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Jesus (Matthew 21:22)
  • Use delight as motivation and gratitude and appreciation to allow and receive your good.
  • Thank before it has come.

So over the last 33 years I have discovered and used all of the tools, thoughts and beliefs to overcome the scarcity belief: meditation, prayer, visualization, channeling high level guides, books, workshops, travel, teaching workshops and visiting incredible gardens and nature spots. Now, Sananda has told me that I have overcome the scarcity belief; he doesn’t want me to believe it. It has been an incredible journey, and I’m grateful for the lessons and manifesting more than I could have ever wished for materially and Divinely.

A very small Hallmark book I used to read my daughter, Roeya, still comes into my awareness and hers, as it was simple, tender, loving kindness, the best manifestations of all: Let me love the little things (Hallmark editions), by Helen Lowrie Marshall.

Dear God, please give to me
A thankful heart for little things
For sunshine on my kitchen floor
For news the postman brings
For memories in the making
Things the children do and say
That I will smile about, perhaps
Some future, lonelier day.
Grant me appreciation
Of the small joys that are mine
The children’s birthday parties
My honeysuckle vine
The clean, fresh smell
Of clothes just washed
The ivy on my wall
The children’s thrilled delight
To wake and find the first snowfall.
For robins in the springtime
And autumn’s crispy weather
For leaves that crunch
Friends in for lunch
And laughter shared together.
Give me enthusiasm
To greet each brand new day
With an honest joy in living
As I go my simple way
I do not ask contentment
That would ambition stay
But let me love the little things
I find along the way.

God Laughs in Flowers

Laughter is the best medicine.

Flowers are one of the strongest creations on Earth, so I would like to invite you to explore the benefits to your well being and wellness by trying a variety of flower essences and essential oils. You may discover for yourself why Sananda has told me that the Earth will be healed by flowers, Grandmothers and your innocence.

The most well known and popular flower essence is Bach’s Rescue Remedy. It is an all-around stress reducer and acts in a potent way to calm and bring peace during any crises, even if they are as small as the jitters you may have before a public speaking engagement. Flower essences can balance your emotional state, allowing any health-giving regimen a better chance to work. My own theory of why they work so well is that I believe flowers are incarnate Angels.

Whether a bouquet on your desk or night stand, essential oils as aroma therapy or a treat for you in your bath, flowers are healers and worth your attention. Edible flowers also bring beauty, joy and songs from the fairy kingdoms to your salads and desserts.

One stunning spring day my friends, Janette and Lorna, and I set out to hike in our favorite place, Soberanes Canyon, to make our own flower essences. Some days are sublime in every way with sweet breezes, wild flower fragrances, sunlight that sparkles and colors that look otherworldly. The nature spirits abound in this park, as it hasn’t been disturbed and is in the magical, mystical coast redwoods of Big Sur, California. We were all in a very good mood, being together on this glorious day, going for a hike and a picnic with a purpose of making a very special flower essence, Mountain Sorrel.

We found our special spot for our picnic under the Redwood canopy with Mountain Sorrel all around us. We had brought our special water and utensils and were ready to begin making the essence.

We were all very amazed, surprised and in wonderment when the flowers started singing. We were alone, and the strongest substances we had eaten were oranges and Chai tea. We were all glad that we were witnesses to this phenomenon together; we all heard it. My friend Janette sang back to the flowers, which increased our laughs and fun. We made the essences and felt very blessed and loved.

The effect this experience had on us was pure Joy. We all spontaneously sang hymns on our hike back, and the amazing part was that we were singing the words to songs we didn’t know. A very curious and very fun day, inspired by the overlighting devas of the woods and flowers– and Love.

I hope you will enjoy learning about the amazing being that a flower is. Their essences are easy to make. Instructions are given here in an earlier blog.
