Flowers

The photos for today are of wild roses growing by the creek in our neighborhood. With their pink hue and sun-yellow centers they bring vitality and uplift to you. Their fragrance is subtle and sweet. Since many grow along the path, the sweet breeze carries you along your walk and with the negative ions in the air from the rushing creek nearby your thoughts and feelings are lifted and energized.

Such a wonderful way to start the day.

A very fun thing I have done in my life is make friends of plants, trees, flowers and of course the obvious– our beloved pets; dogs, cats, horses, and a very dear hamster.

If you would like to make friends with a flower it is easy and rewarding as flowers love to share their essence with you. Since they have lived on our Grandmother Earth for 114 million years, each has a unique set of patterns, wisdom and frequencies to share.

Step one is to stand or sit next to the flower you choose.
Step two is to appreciate your new friend. Tell her what pleases you– fragrance, color shape or feeling. Flowers love appreciation.
Step three is to just be with her. Be still and breathe in her essence. Just be in a relaxed state of allowing and ask what she would like to share with you. You may receive words to a song, a feeling, a thought or information that will help you.
Step four is to thank her and ask if there is anything you can do to make her more comfortable.
Step five is to enjoy the feeling of having made a new friend.

Flow is the first part of the word flower, and they all have a very special way to return us to Love, our natural flow. Receiving help simply by making a connection with a flower will open the many doors for you to incredible Divine Mysteries in Mother Nature. Trees, Herbs, Butterflies, Hawks, Owls, Deer, Clouds, Streams, Dragonflies, Lady Bugs… to name a few, are all very unique, even among their own species. A world of wonder awaits you to open to a conscious connection with these beings, as we are all already connected in spirit to all that is.

A few years ago I attended a spiritual retreat in nature. We gathered around a tree to thank it for its service of bringing us clean air and shade and asked it how we could help it. Several participants ventured eloquent metaphysical, and fairly complex, ideas of how we could help this lovely being when one of the ladies shouted, “This tree just wants a drink of water!” We all laughed. We just needed to open and allow the wisdom of the tree to come to us.

I have always been uplifted by gardens, forests, oceans and trees. Abraham, through Esther and Jerry Hicks, teaches us the most important thing for us to attract the life we love is to feel good. Mother Nature has never failed to help me feel a little better, then better, until I’m lifted to a place where my creativity starts to flow. That is one of my favorite and best feelings.

Flower Essences

I’m writing again today about one of my favorite bridges of love light, Flowers.

I love flowers.

Our dear beauties didn’t appear on Mother Earth until 114 million years ago. Given the Geologic time scale of several Billion years, that is fairly recent. Eckhart Tolle in his book, A New Earth, mentions that flowers are the key to enlightenment.

Gardens have always helped me, over my lifetime, to hear my spiritual guidance, find peace and get a clear direction for solving my problems.

I’m grateful to Green Hope Farm Flower Essences. A friend recommended them to me a few weeks ago. I’m so happy to receive Molly Sheehan’s understanding of how flower essences help us, our pets and our plants. Ultimately they help the “whole,” as we are all connected. If you would like to explore their benefits, their website contains a wealth of information on how they work and which ones to choose for YOU.

Flowers have worked through many life problems in the last 114 million years, and they contain their patterns of wisdom in their essence.

For the Cosmic moment we are currently in, on our dear Mother Gaia, Green Hope Farm, has created several essences from their Venus Garden for 2019. The one I’m choosing is “Upwards and Onwards.”

My mom used the expression “Onwards and Upwards” often when I was growing up. I always thought that uplifting. Now we are in the Golden Age of Aquarius, so Upwards, first in our consciousness, and then Onwards in our actions, is more appropriate and powerful.

This is one part of how Molly describes this essence: “The heart of the garden was Mehera Marigolds for Love of Divinity. There were Bells of Ireland to help us anchor within us the highest vibration possible, Cosmos so we can live and speak from the heart and Sweet Alyssum so we can be our most evolved self in physical form. Sacred Tobacco and other Nicotianas were there to help us purify and let go of the things we thought were our real identity but which tied us to the illusions of small self and stopped us from knowing our true self in Oneness.”

She writes more about this essence, and many others from that garden on her website. Wonderful.

The photos of the flowers today are from my neighborhood. My friend used to always put nasturtiums from her garden on top of her salads. They taste a little bit like watercress and are so pretty.

Flowers are always helping us whether in our gardens, in our homes, in essential oils and aroma therapy, as food or in especially created essences. As in the top line from this blog,
The Earth will be healed by Grandmothers, Flowers and our Child within who is innocent, as flowers bring us enlightenment.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and You.

Many years ago when I was choosing the name for my blog, I asked Sananda what would encompass the whole of what he was teaching me. I asked, “What exactly do I do when I’m helping people either with channeling, or prayer or energy work?” and he said, “You are a bridge of love-light.” This made me happy, and he told me that Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature, our innocence as Divine Children and flowers would heal the Earth.

Today I have included several photos that I took at the Carmelite Monastery in Carmel, CA. Each of the flowers have personal significance for me and uplift me when I see them. Bridges of love and light  are personal to ourselves. Each may be one of our infinite variety of choices to uplift us– music, laughing, meditating, praying, dancing, thanking, forgiving, being in the Now… all work wonderfully well. As a collective of humanity, we are reaching higher to awaken to our true higher selves, hence our need for bridges to our Eden; our own unique symbols that help us reach higher. My love of Nature, and her beauty and elements, never fails to lift me higher and make me feel better, best, then inspired, then joy.

May these flowers (and Frog) inspire you to create your very own Heaven on Earth. Since we are all connected, we will all share in our Nova Earth. It is here now.
