The Amazing Healing Properties of Flowers

As in the title of this blog, many years ago Sananda told me the earth would be healed by Grandmothers, Flowers and Children, including your child within, who is innocent. Working with him over the years I learned the importance of innocence, our true Divine Nature, the inclusiveness of his teachings and the power of flowers. It’s very easy to understand the healing power of Grandmothers with their wisdom and love for their grandchildren. Today we will speak of the healing power of Flowers.

As shared in a previous article here, Dr. Edward Bach, M.D., was a pioneer in discovering flowers’ essences could help his patients. He stated, “quite simply, flowers heal.” Today, his five-flower remedy, Rescue Remedy, is widely available and used all over the world.

You can easily learn how to make your own flower essences. They are fun to make and easy to use. The video linked here teaches you the basics.

Sananda also taught me that Flowers are some of the strongest beings on earth. Such a paradox seeing how fragile and beautiful they are with almost intoxicating fragrances. He has also taught me that Nova Earth is filled with paradoxes as we move into understanding wholeness and inclusiveness; a shift from duality. He often tells me, “Look toward what you want to create; focus there.”

I would like to help create heaven on Earth, and in my world that means a return to Eden: GARDENS.

Flowers and herbs are the most helpful remedies I have found in the physical world, as they are bridges to heaven or the spiritual world. In an herbal class I took, the instructor had been taught by a shaman who had learned the essences of the herbs with his eyes covered with a cloth. He felt they were holy and that he needed to feel and be spiritually guided as to their purpose.

Flowers can uplift your spirits and just make you feel good, which is a big leap towards wellness. A bouquet by your bedside, or aromatherapy with an essential oil or a flower essence are all helpful to your whole self. Other comforting ways to “feel good,” which we have learned from Abraham and the Hicks’ teachings as being the most important way for us to attract our good, might be walking through a garden.

There are so many ways to enjoy Flowers. They can be dried, preserved with sugar and egg whites and eaten or used to brighten your salad or garnish your favorite dish. I highly recommend watching Chef’s Table “Jeong Kwan,” from season three. Netflix says of the episode: “In South Korea, Buddhist nun, Jeong Kwan, approaches cooking as a spiritual practice. Her meals, including her Lotus Flower tea, have left some of the world’s best chefs in awe.” Watching her make the Lotus Flower tea is a treat and such a great example of enjoying all the sublime attributes of flowers.

When you make your flower essence, make sure you have identified the flower correctly. Some of the most beautiful flowers are poisonous. Also make sure they are organic. Don’t collect or forage from roadsides. I learned this the hard way when I had my sister and her husband for dinner. I was excited to make them one of my favorite rice dishes that contained a large amount of dill weed. I saw large bunches along the roadside and was so excited to collect them. When it was time to serve the rice it had a dark green color and smelled of licorice. It turned out I had collected anise, which looks very much like dill! So, off we went to Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour for dinner.

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.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and You, Dear Heart

Would you like to have a simple and easy way to feel refreshed, energized and ready for a new day?

Yes?

When possible do this right at sunrise, or any time of day. Walk into your yard or a natural place and stand barefoot on Grandmother Earth. Turn slowly and thank each of the directions: East, South, West and North. As you do this, sense that each direction has a different quality and feel to it. When I face North, I feel Peaceful, mentally clear and calm. When I face South I feel my child within is ready to play. Facing East always brings me reverence and a willingness to have a new spiritual perspective, even in just small ways. I’ve always loved facing West, as I’ve had the joy of living near the Ocean for most of my life. Looking out to the Western Ocean horizon always brings me expansion, Peace, and creativity.

Next, feel the enlivening Earth energy rising up in you and giving you refreshment. Bend over at the waist, let your arms hang freely and just let go of any worries, doubts or fears. Slowly stand up straight, lift your arms up, open and reach for the sky, and allow the Father Sky Love-Light to fill you up with fresh, life-giving air. Thank each of the Elementals: Air, Water, Fire and Earth for the liveliness they give you.

Next, if you are able to, jump up and down. You are refreshed, reset and ready for a new day.

Today, I’d like to share books and a website that I have found to be valuable. Each have inspired, uplifted and healed me in a very real way.

“In order to enter a deeper relationship with Nature, I was required to become a participant with Nature rather than continue in the role of onlooker. I did not find this at all easy. I was propelled into a metaphysical reality, a reality I did not enter willingly… We come to this planet with a clearly defined destiny, but as soon as we take on human form, we forget it. Life then carries us kicking and screaming toward our perfect goal while we try our hardest to abort the mission.” – Journey into Nature: A Spiritual Adventure by Michael J. Roads

I love this book as it is a real journey into Nature where you meet Pan, the Spirit of Nature, and the beingness of trees, minerals, rivers and dolphins. A truly transformative delight.

The next book came to me as a very welcome surprise one Christmas, from my sister, Charmaine. I had wanted to read it, as in the early 1980’s I had the opportunity of visiting Findhorn in Scotland. The author, Dorothy Maclean, was one of the three founders of the Findhorn community. To Hear the Angels Sing is a book you can read over and over again and feel it is the first time. It is rich with meaning and understanding of the spiritual intelligence and unconditional Love in and of Nature.

“It is said that God is Love. This is so, and as creation becomes more conscious, it expresses greater love. The essence of life, no matter what its consciousness, is Love. This is true of all kingdoms, and man’s greatest contribution to life on the planet is consciously to love, and so to bring health, vigor and beauty to life.” – The Landscape Angel, To Hear the Angels Sing

Today, more than 40 years later, the Findhorn community has become a thriving Ecovillage offering many subjects in Biodynamic gardening and all the principles Findhorn is based on. The main theme is to become beneficial stewards of Grandmother Earth.

Perelandra-ltd.com is a site you could spend days on. It contains Machaelle Wright’s books (some you can read on the site), flower essence products and videos containing her products and lovely views of her Center for Nature Research in Jeffersonton, Virginia. This site is a treasure for sure. Enjoy.
