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.

Contemplation, Mindful Movement and Meditation

Contemplation, Mindful movement, and Meditation

Last week we discovered how simple it is to create Love, Peace and Harmony in our lives. These qualities help us have more health, happiness and contentment.

I want to share my favorite forms of these practices that have been my personal bridges of love-light. I love joy, fun and happiness. These activities of light have helped me truly and immeasurably to be happy, be joy and be myself.

Often friends tell me of the upset and anxiety in their lives and I ask, “Do you meditate?” As often the response is, “No, I don’t have time.” My favorite response I borrowed from a zen proverb: “You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.”

I’ve experienced over and over that mediating gives me more time in my day. Synchronicity, serendipity, harmony and peace of mind create the space for great ideas and solutions to problems. Who to call, when to go and where; your own Divine intuition enhanced and louder.

My favorite forms are Mindful Walking, sitting on a bench in a garden, Tai chi, taking an almost-nap in the sun, sitting on the sand at the ocean’s edge, walking on the beach or, as the Japanese say, “forest bathing.” Choose a form that works for you. You don’t have to be formally meditating as a Zen Monk to receive the many benefits of stilling your mind and being in your heart– as Eckhart Tolle teaches us in Stillness Speaks.

What I learned from his holiness, The Dalai Lama, is that what he gets from meditation is “nothing.” What he doesn’t get is what is important: he doesn’t get get anger, anxiety and a lack of peace of mind.

He teaches us: “The source of a happy life is within us… Peace of mind is within us; it requires that we develop a warm heart and use our intelligence. People often don’t realize that warmheartedness, compassion, and love are actually factors for our survival.” (From The Dalai Lama on Why Leaders Should Be Mindful, Selfless, and Compassionate, by The he Dalai Lama with Rasmus Hougaard, published in the Harvard Business Review February 20, 2019.)

The photo above demonstrates stillness in movement. The creek is flowing and still and clear at the same time. For me, the clear mirror image in the photo’s picture of stillness is how we reflect our Creator in the stillness. We hear our “still small voice.”

Love, Peace, Harmony

Love Peace Harmony

To take up where we left off last week, join hearts and Souls together, Love, Peace and Harmony.

Your heart is your higher intelligence. People all over the world are waking up to this thought.

“Follow your heart” is a common recommendation in these times that resonates with this truth as a prescription for happiness, health and spiritual growth.

Our hearts contain Love, Peace and Harmony. Our hearts are our connection to Divine Love. When we allow the Peace of the moment, we can travel to our heart center easily. Breathing slowly and deeply with our palms over our heart, one or both hands, we can find the comfort and safety of our infinite and eternal connection with our Divine Creator. Doing this with your attention, without distractions, can take you to that sacred part of your self that is the Peace that “passeth” all understanding. In just five minutes you most likely have lowered your blood pressure, found less or no stress, and have reset and reconnected to your Creative core.

Sananda has taught me that this Sacred Heart connection can help you discover root causes of problems you are facing and be prompted by ideas of possible solutions. Einstein has taught us that we can’t solve our problems at the level they were created; we have to rise above to a higher perspective. Our heart is our higher intelligence.

Years ago I was introduced to Gregg Braden through his book, Walking between the Worlds: the Science of Compassion. This book helped me so much on my own Spiritual Path as I realized I had been doing that for quite some time in my Channeling Career. Now is the time that those two worlds are coming together as Heaven on Earth, and this is being facilitated by all of our Sacred Hearts coming together. Join hearts and Souls together.

One of the truly wonderful parts of this is we, our very unique selves, don’t get lost in the shuffle. We actually become more ourselves. In Love, Peace and Harmony we discover a new sense of freedom and the joy to express ourselves without fear of retribution, criticism or harm. We can add to the collective cosmic consciousness for the betterment and fun of all.

On our beautiful Earth, Gaia, Sophia, Virgo, Patcha Mama, there are many sentient beings whose purpose is to teach us just that. That our hearts are our gateway to all Good. Cetaceans, Flowers, Trees, all of the Elementals, the Animal Kingdom, Fairies and many beings we haven’t discovered yet, are here to help us be part of the grand awakening that is Now. A time that you came to be a part of. You are assisting In the Celestial Rise of Earth and all of her inhabitants. It’s time to Celebrate.

Gregg Braden’s work, along with many others, can help you awaken to your part through his discoveries of the heart’s intelligence. The HeartMath Institute is another of the many teachings available.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. & Master Sha 18 years ago when I had a booth at the Monterey Psychic Fair. Dr. Sha was listed as one of the lecture presenters. When I saw his name, my intuition told me “he is the genuine article.”

I attended his lecture and was enthralled with his method of presentation and his message of Soul Healing. He had one small paperback book on Soul Healing. Later that week I attended another of his lectures and felt very uplifted, and I loved his message of “heal the Soul first and your mental, spiritual, physical body will follow.”

Dr. Sha’s method of lecturing struck me as being very potent for healing as he spoke enthusiastically and would give a point and then say “ Practice.” He had the audience practice right on the spot: Repeat, “Lu la Lu la Li, love, Peace, Harmony.” Or: stand, join hands, repeat, “Join hearts and souls together, Love, Peace and Harmony.”

His pace was so fast there wasn’t time for doubt. He had us doing Tai Chi movements, and positive mantras of Soul Healing and chanting. He spoke of a future intensive workshop he would be giving, which I really wanted to attend, though my timing wouldn’t allow. I was so enthusiastic about his work that I convinced one of my very good friends to attend.

After the workshop she visited me and gave me all of her notes. I have used them often. That workshop was all about healing through specific sounds. Each chanted word and sound corresponds to a particular part of the body. Now all of these years later he has several New York Times best selling books, several International Organizations and has trained many students worldwide to be teachers of Soul Healing, sound healing and Tao Calligraphy Healing. I am happy to have met him in those early years and have had the opportunity to watch him grow and expand his spiritual teaching to being an international force for Good.

I have several of his books and recordings and always am uplifted when I use them. One aspect of his work that I love is it is non-denominational.

I have enjoyed watching his success over the years. The simplicity of chanting “Love, Peace, Harmony, Lu La Lu La Li, Join Hearts and Souls together,” is definitely catching on. I hope you will check out his website. He has so many tools for healing. Currently he is teaching Tao Calligraphy, the art of healing through painting sacred symbols. He is definitely a Master Healer of our times. The many testimonials of healing, including myself, demonstrate the Spiritual Truth of Soul Healing.

Simplicity

Simplicity

I have read the statement “God is Simple” many times in spiritual texts from many different authors. I believe God is simple. God is Love. A Course in Miracles states: “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Therein lies the Peace of God.” Simple. I have used that often when I have been in “tight spots,” or to bring myself to a state of Peace. I love simplicity.

In one of the last Star Trek Movies, Spock was standing next to his computer and that same statement from A Course in Miracles was on his monitor. It was slightly in the background, but plain enough to see. I smiled and wondered how often it was noticed.

The photos today are how simple it is to help our Earth and ourselves to be very much healthier and happier.

In one of my favorite books, Love Without End: Jesus Speaks…, by Glenda Green, Jesus tells us very simple ways to improve our lives. One of my favorites is to contemplate infinity every day. Look at the stars, or horizon or just imagine the infinite love of the Creator for you and the Creation. A simple moment that can change your whole day for the better.  Also view the sunrise and sunset. Watching the sunset gets your mind and physical body ready for a good night’s sleep. Especially when you add thanks for all the goodness of the day. Also, watching the sunrise sets your body for activity and gives the energy and fire of life.

About 23 years ago I asked my self how I could help the earth. I wanted to donate to organizations that had missions of helping, when I realized I could help very simply by buying organic foods. I had worked for the Animal Protection Institute in the 70s and Planetary Citizens in the 80s and understood that much of the monies donated were used for overhead. I do believe in the good work of non-profits. My love of simplicity led me to choose to use my money to help the Earth and water by buying organic products whenever I could. Organic foods help the soil, bees, butterflies, water, including our life-giving oceans, farmers’ health and our health.

At this same time is when I discovered Numi organic tea. A brother and sister who are passionate about tea and helping the Earth and her people started this company. I was so happy to purchase the little woven basket of five tea bags. Today, about 25 years later, their tea company has expanded to being fair trade and helping an organization: H2OPE helping water, soil and farmers. I have loved watching them expand over the years. I’m a lifelong tea lover and theirs are my favorite. Now I have even seen their teas in hotel room coffee and tea service. Their bottle is beautiful. Today the lid contained the Arabic Proverb, “The mind is for seeing, the heart is for hearing.”

We are all One, loving the Earth is loving your body. I feel we are all joining together in knowing this. One of my favorite songs that one of my friends often sings is the Shaker song “Simple Gifts.”

Simplicity

Secretariat

My younger daughter, Hana with Cyanne, and our little friend Autumn.

The film Secretariat, the true story of Helen Bates “Penny” Chenery Tweedy, champion horse Secretariat, Penny’s family and her team, can be a template of success and prosperity for all of us in this new Aquarian Age. All of the ingredients for Higher Purpose, and True Heart Success are demonstrated. The qualities of Love, Unity, Right use of Will, Creativity, Prayer, Perseverance, Compassion, Intuition and Reason, Teamwork, Goodness, Respect, Intention, Humor, Celebration, Joy, Caring for others, Following Inner Guidance, Everyone involved doing their own Jobs to the best of their ability, Cooperation, Humility, Courage, Self-Love, Leading with Integrity and Belief in Yourself. Every moment of this inspiring story, told beautifully in this movie, inspires us  to create our own successful story. You can save yourself $450 for a weekend workshop by watching this movie a few times and following what it teaches.

The New World that we have entered is all about these qualities.  

Penny led her team with her Divine intuition, Strength and Courage. She often said, “I am not afraid, and neither is my horse.” Secretariat has the most amazing Triple Crown record of any race horse to date. I feel his Triple Crown is the qualities of Divine Life, Truth and Love.

Love, Self Love, intention to face Life head-on and the Courage of her convictions are the main guiding principles for each of Penny’s choices as her story unfolds. 

I’ve heard comments that the New World without pain, suffering and loss will be boring. Creating Heaven on Earth is anything but boring! Every single subject that you can think of will be taken to new heights that are connected to every other aspect of life, that also will be taken to unexpected places beyond our wildest dreams. Prosperity for All, clean oceans and a healed Earth, Inter-species communication, and Love as the underlying Power of Life will ask us to use our unique gifts and talents to create, create, create.

Penny’s love for her father shines through as we see that  when she was a child, he told her  to run her race. When he met “Big Red,” Secretariat, he told Penny to let him run his race. Secretariat’s trainer allowed him to run his race and be himself.

Her father tells Penny, “It doesn’t matter if they think we won; it only matters if we think we won.” In my own spiritual growth this has made all the difference: to know when I have won, regardless of if others around me are thinking I have lost.  

Penny is my super heroine, an example of a modern day goddess.

The Divine message for you from Penny and Secretariat: “You run Your Race.”

Dare to Be Wild

Dare to be Wild

I hope you had a chance to see the movie Dare to Be Wild. 

My mom often told me she wished see could see the world through my eyes. This movie truly reflects the part of me that feels about and sees nature the way Mary Reynolds does. She sees the light and spirit in nature and she feels the wild. In addition, her life story is a very real and clear demonstration of how she consciously uses the prosperity principles of Love, higher purpose, prayer, courage, overcoming fear, trust, persistence, affirmation, joy, focus, Mother Nature, the spirit of the hawthorn, sharing her dream with the world and her inner child’s lighthearted innocence and childhood wishes.

Mary’s love of the “wild” and wanting to save it gives her the idea to get accepted to present her wild atmosphere landscape design at the Chelsea Flower Show in England. This very prestigious event only accepts eight participants out of 2,000 who apply. As the story unfolds we see that every part of her endeavor is going to require multiple miracles and perseverance along the way to bring it to fruition. 

For us, creating and manifesting our dreams, I feel the most important thing is to have a big enough dream to put our whole heart in, and a dream that is our higher purpose. One  that can be supported by Nature, Spirit and Divine Love will have the most power. As Mary tells us, Nature and Man are one. Your dreams may contain wild nature in the form you choose. Your expression may contain nature just in the fact that you are nature.

We have officially entered the Aquarian Age. The hallmarks of creating Heaven on Earth in this time are all present in this movie. Love, Oneness with Nature and our community, creativity, sharing our gifts and talents and working in groups with other like-minded people with whom we resonate.

These are some of the prosperity principles that I received from this story. I hope you will give me yours in the comment section below.

Mary used the power of affirmation and gratitude from the beginning of her project. She had her affirmation in plain view for the times when she was discouraged: “Thank you for my gold medal in landscape design at the Chelsea Flower Show.” We often use our affirmations in things that don’t really matter to us. It’s important to have our affirmation in plain view that we see often, and that we really care about and intend to create.

Mary often says, “Believe it has happened, and it has happened.” Her belief and commitment is unwavering. She puts a photograph of herself and the builder she needs in her magic box at the base of the hawthorn tree and asks it for help.

At one setback where her employer steals her designs, she could have given up and given in to any of a few negative energies that could have kept her down and bitter. With encouragement and support from her friends, she kept going and let go of the harm done to her.

It’s easy to see in her success story that each time she went forward with determination and willingness she was supported by nature, her high self, synchronicities, her hawthorn tree, friends and miracles– lots of Divine Miracles.

If you use these principles for yourself, I do believe you will also create and demonstrate many miracles.

I took the photos in this article while vacationing in the Grand Tetons at the Gros Ventre campground. I felt the wild nature and the wild flowers. They are small but carry the feeling and atmosphere of the place.
