Becorns

“Becorns” are named after Acorns because they are second.

I love the creator David M. Bird. He is so creative and fun.

Our Nova Earth, which is here now, is filled with Creativity. The energy of creativity always makes me feel joyful when I tune into it.

I discovered “Becorns” a few months ago and they made me smile and laugh.

In the video above David shows us the process of his art and creations. He has a delightful and whimsical way of expression.

I thank Sunday Morning for sharing his story in the video below- an indication for me that we are in the dawning of the Age of Aquarius where our hearts are leading our minds; where we cherish Mother Nature and all of her gifts.

One of my own favorite creative projects is creating tiny homes for fairies and gnomes. The more we believe in these elementals, the more they can help us be good stewards of our Earth Home.

Thank you David, for sharing your gifts of beauty, fun, creativity, joy and a tender love of Nature.

Sounds in Mother Nature, Songs, and Music

Sounds in Mother Nature, Songs, and Music are some of my favorite bridges of love light. We can be instantly uplifted by our favorite Music and Lyrics.

The video today contains one of my favorite songs and favorite artists, Matteo Bocelli.

Disney’s The Lion King movie came out in 1994. 

It has special meaning for me as my daughter, Hana, was four years old, and my daughter, Roeya, gave her a Simba Halloween costume that was cherished and worn for fun until it was very outgrown. We all loved the movie, music and its theme of love and care for Nature and Family.

The Lion King went to Broadway in 1997 and has continued there for 21+ years with several wins for Best Musical, global productions and it has been seen by 100 million people.

I have included the lyrics to the song in the video here:

There’s a calm surrender
To the rush of day
When the heat of a rolling wind
Can be turned away
An enchanted moment
And it sees me through
It’s enough for this restless warrior
Just to be with you

And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it’s laid to rest?
It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds

Believe the very best

There’s a time for everyone
If they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope
Moves us all in turn
There’s a rhyme and reason

To the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star-crossed voyager

Beats in time with yours
And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it’s laid to rest?
It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best
It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

I feel the lyrics are foreshadowing our coming heaven on Grandmother Earth.

Enjoy!

Water Crystal Oracle by Masaru Emoto “Love for Humanity”

I have always loved all of the elements and elementals. I have studied a few cultures and their  ways of working with the elements. Each has helped me understand their importance for our joy, health and Spiritual Growth.

I love my Irish heritage and have learned from one Celtic tradition that there are three elements: the Sky above, the Earth below our feet and the Oceans.

Another is our Western traditions of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, with each having elementals and Devas as part of their Beingness.

Traditional Chinese  Medicine teaches us of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water, each having a season and purpose for our health.

All include Water.

I love Water’s healing and mystical qualities.

Masaru Emoto’s work demonstrates the magical and healing powers of Water in his many books and photographs. The photos of the Water Crystals, here, are from his Oracle Cards.

Water Crystal Oracle by Masaru Emoto ”Love and Thanks”

Also, his book The Healing Power of Water is an Anthology, and contains many authors in three parts: the Scientific Perspectives, Health and Healing Perspectives, and Spiritual and Mythological Perspectives. I have highlighted the article by Starhawk below.

“Waters of the World” by Starhawk:

One morning I was meditating beside a beautiful lake in Vermont, listening for whatever messages the water might have for me. ‘All water is connected,’ the lake said. ‘All water is in constant communication with all other water. The waters of the world are one—one consciousness, holding the world in liquid embrace. What you do to any part of the waters affects them all.

I hold my glass of water in gratitude and drink it. I know I have made a healing tonic.

Another simple practice I do, and receive an instant uplift from, is blessing a glass of water and pouring it in a river, creek, pond or in my bath water. I visualize it going around the world with its message of love. 

Water is LOVE, in the elemental kingdoms and here in our everyday reality.

Water enlivens and heals. It rejuvenates and gives us energy. It quenches our thirst and Loves our body. It refreshes and resets us.

To learn more, Masaru Emoto’s, The Healing Power of Water, with perspectives from 21 authors from several disciplines, will inspire you to treat this beautiful element with respect, love and care. It is still available from Amazon.com.

The Ondines from the deep ocean, the sprites of the ocean shoreline and the Ocean itself, may give you messages. Your own mystical and intuitive abilities will be enhanced by listening to Water.

Don’t you always get your best ideas in the shower?

Grandmother Earth

Recently I was looking for an item on YouTube and Pando showed up in a video on the 10 most beautiful places in Nature. It held the spot of number “One.” I was delighted to know that it is close to us, in Utah, and that we have a mini-Pando right in our backyard.

When we first moved to Idaho, I was awakened by a sound I wasn’t familiar with. I looked out my window, and it was the “quaking aspens.” Their leaves catch the wind and create a very lovely “whooshing” sound.

The photos I took last week are of our neighborhood Aspens. The bright yellow leaves are short-lived, as just last night our first snow came, and now they are mostly on the ground.

Our neighborhood aspens, by Nina Wilkins

My friend told me, before I saw the Pando video, that aspens grow in groups and are connected underground by their roots.

“If you plant them in your yard you need two or three and to be aware they will send out underground sprouts to create more,” he said.

I love seeing our resident moose-infant sitting under ours as they love to eat the bark.

Aspens are a wonderful metaphor for awakening Earthlings, People—Humanity.

They thrive on water and hold water– Love– for each other. They are all connected, though each tree is unique.

WE ARE LIKE THAT.

Two of the qualities of the Aquarian Age, which we have entered, are Teamwork and Cooperation. Aspens use those qualities to grow and thrive. A landscaper for a home near us only planted one Aspen tree, and it looks forlorn and struggling. It definitely needs a friend.

Grandmother Earth loves us.

Mother Nature is teaching us all of the time through her Flora, Fauna and the Elemental kingdoms how to thrive and be prosperous without doing harm to the Earth or Each Other.

Many of us are hearing and Learning what she has to teach, and that number is growing exponentially daily. Thank you All.

I love this quote from the Persian poet, Hafiz, “You have all of the ingredients for a wonderful life, mix them, mix them.”

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.

Sunflowers

I’ve always loved being aware of how the Universe of Love supports us.

One way that is magical and mystical is the phenomenon of SYNCHRONICITY.

Synchronicity partly works on the Law of Attraction and partly on the principle of Divine Mystery.

Our Angels, Guides and High Selves love to surprise us with the joy of SERENDIPITY, SYNERGY, SYNCHRONICITY, sacred SPIRAL and Sunflowers.

When I saw the Sunflowers and bees and heard the Meadow Larks in the short video above I felt the joy, and bridge of love light, that I wanted to share with you.

There are at least 60 varieties of sunflowers. They are a wildflower but do really well being cultivated. 

THE SERENDIPITY happened when I was looking for a book on Amazon the same day I saw the video and the amazing book below, Basilius Besler’s Florilegium: The Book of Plants: The Book of Plants – the Complete Plates, showed up with a drawing of a sunflower. The book is now on my wish list. It’s from the 1600s about an amazing garden in Germany that no longer exists, but the beautiful rendered drawings document it. 

I then thought, “Wow, I wonder what the Sunflower essence would help us with,” and looked it up in A Guide to Green Hope Farm Flower Essences. This account below tells of their 2001 Venus Garden. My favorite.

My friend Deborah and I had just this week been talking about the idea that spiritual  growth is a sacred spiral and this Sunflower Essence helps us with that.

“Sunflower, the one to have when you need to live like a super hero; a personal reminder of our divinity. Also, Sunflower Spiral (the way they were planted in the Venus Garden) Helps us feel grounded in our Divine light. Helps us to know who is there to support us and know whom we are there to support.

“Renews and encourages us when the going gets tough.”

The SYNERGY comes in when we eat them. 

Sunflower seeds are filled with nutrition, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. Birds love them, and the sunflower seeds in commercial bird feeds fall to the ground and often result in a surprise flower.

The chart below shows the nutrients that we often don’t find in our usual diet.

Enjoy.

These little seeds are often forgotten on my grocery list, though now they will be at the top of it.

Before enlightenment, “Chop wood; Carry Water.” After enlightenment, “Chop Wood; Carry Water.”

A book by this name was very popular in the 1980s.  

I find its message still very true.

I have loved studying and learning from Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and the elemental kingdoms for most of my adult life.

Earth, Fire, Water and Air. I look at these elements through the lens of Divine Love. Earth is life. Fire is truth. Water is love. Air is the Elemental breath that gives rise to the connection, health and Divine Intelligence in all things.

We have entered the Golden Age of Aquarius which has as its overall governing principle, LOVE. Unconditional love, and comprehensive Divine Love.

WATER is Love in the elemental kingdoms. When you truly know this, you will want to help the waters on earth. 

The healing powers of water are a well known fact, and those powers are becoming more widely used.

Now it is our turn to give back to the waters. 

The water cycle itself is very magical and mystical. It is a closed circle and infinite in expression. A circle in Taoist Philosophy and sacred geometry is Love. The circle contains all and is empty at the same time. 

Water as a Divine Mystery is an extraordinary life giving, nourishing, cleansing, renewing gift for us all. Let’s help the waters and cherish their gift in deep GratItude.

I support and am deeply grateful for Water.Org. This organization with leadership from Matt Damon and many others, has the goal of furnishing safe drinking water for 771 million people.

You may want to support them with funding, prayers or involvement in a way that works for you.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature, the Animal Kingdoms, the Nature Kingdoms, the Elemental Kingdoms and the Waters thank you.

Dolphins

Now is the time of the Golden Dolphin.

Dolphins express and are Unconditional Love. 

Twelve times in Humanity’s history, the Golden Spirit Dolphins have wanted to share their wisdom, mysteries and secrets, but humanity was not ready. Now is the 13th time, and humanity is ready.

Water is the element of Love. Dolphins live in a sea of Love.

Masaru Emoto tells us he was guided by the Hado, or Spirit of Water, and was inspired and elevated in his thinking to create his amazing discoveries about “the memory” and communication in Water.

Dolphins

The photo above is a Crystal of water when he gave it the word “Dolphin.” Masaru Emoto created a Water Crystal Oracle. Number seven is the description for Dolphin: “Dolphins are our teachers of unconditional LOVE. Focus on them when you need to connect with this energy. Picture yourself surrounded by them in the ocean as you swim together surrounded by their bubbles of joy.”

As you look at this Dolphin “Crystal” you can see a stunning, shining visual of their essence of beauty.

Another of Masaru Emoto’s books that I love is The Healing Power of Water. It is very comprehensive, with three major divisions: Scientific Perspectives (five amazing chapters), Health and Healing Perspectives (five well documented and astonishing chapters), and part three, Spiritual and Mythological Perspectives (with 11 of my favorite chapters, including Chapter 21, “Rituals for celebrating the sacred gift of Water,” by Maril Crabtree.)

When I tune into Dolphin Consciousness and Kudos my, Seven Spirit Dolphin guides, they tell me “jump.” I always laugh when I do. Also synchronicity, serendipity and synergy are their calling cards. Because they are unlimited and live in Spirit and in body in the ocean, which is the greatest conductor of thought with feeling, telempathy is one of their gifts; they can  coordinate events for us for the pure delight of the experience.

Synergy is a Divine quality of the Golden age of Aquarius where cooperation, communication with love, and teamwork are the order of the day. Dolphins live in the Now in family groups. Their babies are their world. 

You can explore Dolphin Consciousness in your Meditations, shower, beach or pool. Their love and wisdom are always available for us. I like to see and feel Kudos in Dream time. You can have the intention of seeing them in your dreams and ask to remember your encounters. Sometimes I receive a feeling of exuberance, and other times the feeling of giant blue-green ocean waves that are carrying me out to sea; overwhelming peace, love and healing.

I’m very  grateful for Kudos with their love, guidance and inspiration telling me to “keep going.”

Flowers

Gardens have been my “go to” for peace, inspiration, hope and clarity for many decades.

The flowers, herbs, trees, shrubs and breezes have never failed me.

Sitting on a bench in a park, garden or forest I feel the presence of the Divine.

It doesn’t take long until I remember the part of our Lord’s Prayer that says “give us this day, our daily bread.” I remember the power of Now and feel and know that whatever I need for this day is at hand. Whatever I need to do this day, my intuition will guide me to do or be.

As soon as I feel that peace, I get up and start my day.

Today I’m sharing a tiny glass flower and vase that my sister, Charmaine, gave me. 

Whenever I’m not able to get to a garden, I go into my imagination or tune into the flowers in my room.

Another way I love flowers is through flower essences, books, herbs, and essential oils.

One of my favorite books is Magic Gardens, by Corinne Heline (copyright 1944). In it, she says:

“In Flowerland the whispers of heaven may become audible to the children of men; for the celestial hosts, too, have a way of ‘saying it with flowers.'”

She goes to quote this poem:

A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Rose plot,
Fringed pool,
Ferned grot–
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not–
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign;
‘Tis very sure God walks in mine.
– Thomas Edward Brown

This book describes some of  the essences of flowers that Dr. Bach discovered as healing remedies.

A modern day company that makes “flower essences” is Green Hope Farm Flower Essences.

I have used many of their essences over the years. They capture the consciousness of the flowers and put it in bottles preserved with shiso, a type of vinegar,  rather than alcohol. 

Very magical. They have made essences from flowers all over the world.

Since the practitioners tune into the consciousness of the flower, you may also receive benefits by reading the descriptions on their website. I particularly love the “Venus Garden” and the “Irish  collection.”

One thing flowers thrive on is Appreciation. Try standing next to a flower you love and tell it how beautiful it is.  Maybe say you love its color, shape and fragrance, or just send it love and thanks from your heart. You wIll have made its day. The joy will spill right over into your day.

Paradise Is Where You Are

“Wherever my travels may lead, paradise is where I am.” ― Voltaire

Esther and Jerry Hicks have been teaching the principles of deliberate creation for about three decades.

I have loved  their “Teachings of Abraham” as they are simple to apply and get results. I’ve felt that they definitely come from a higher place. After all of these years, also, their work has helped shift the consciousness of hundreds of thousands of people. 

I have used their book Ask and It Is Given in classes I have taught. My favorite part is “going up the emotional ladder” and how to shift negatives to positives, knowing how important your feelings are. Their books are all a reminder of the power of the Law of Attraction. ‘What is like unto itself is drawn.”

The little book I’m highlighting today is Manifest Your Desires: 365 Ways to Make Your Dreams a Reality, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Teachings of Abraham.

I wanted to share a couple of passages that are some of my favorites. Source is Father Mother God, or the Universe of Love light and well Being without any Religious charge on the word. I also like this little book because of the colors and Nature Art. Every day is a different color, the infinite variety of nature.

Two passages from the book:

I have found in my own experience that taking the time to go up the emotional scale until I am feeling love and appreciation makes all the difference in my day. The Hicks  teach that every morning, when you awaken have a rampage of appreciation, create your own book of positive aspects, and meditate for 15 minutes. I have found that doing this consistently makes all the difference in my awareness to move towards my good and create amazing moments and miracles.

If you haven’t worked with these principles yet, give them a try. We have entered the Golden Age of Aquarius where Love is the Power and Creating heaven on Earth is our purpose.

Have fun and joy in your unique contributions for the good of ALL.
