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.
