The video above, “Spotted Dolphins,” is your two minutes of Zen for the day. Just take a few deep breaths, relax and allow the peace and joy from the Ocean and Dolphins; definitely a bridge of love-light.
One breath of nature makes the whole world kin. – Shakespeare
When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world. – John Muir
More and more people are awakening and realizing we are in the Golden Age of Aquarius, where Universal Love is the primary quality permeating all life. Currently it may not look like that in our world, but little by little, life is blossoming around and through Humanity, the Elemental Kingdoms, Animal Kingdoms and Plant kingdoms, especially Trees.
A few years ago I learned from Sananda that the great changes on our Grandmother Earth would be grass roots. From the bottom up. Not from Governments or the “top” but from individuals. Us.
Today we can help our Oceans and all life in the Divine Waters of this incredibly beautiful planet by very simple but powerful individual acts of awareness and kindness.
When you are on your walk today, pick up the small bits of trash, as that is what birds choose as food. Cigarette butts, bottle caps and shiny foil wrappers attract seagulls, pelicans and other birds.
September in California is beach clean up month. There are hundreds of sites that provide everything you will need to join the cleanup crew. It’s fun also. The statistics of wildlife that are killed each year due to trash are disheartening.
I take an extra poop bag when I’m walking Lola, my daughter’s dog, so I can easily pick up the small bits of trash. When we pick up one cigarette butt, a bird might be saved. I love that feeling.
The very big thing you can do is stop buying single-use plastics. Of course keep the plastics you have in your home that you are using over and over. Single-use plastics are choking our streams, rivers and oceans. Most of these are water or beverage containers. Only 5% of all plastics are recycled.
One of my favorite and effective not-for-profit organizations is Oceana. Founded by Ted Danson and Woody Harrelson over 20 years ago, Oceana has been making great strides in helping our Oceans.
These three small actions: trash pick up, “no more” single use plastic, and supporting Oceana, are small individual actions, but multiplied by millions will make great strides in solving our Ocean Pollution. Our clean oceans can feed one billion people.
Also, a message from our Golden Dolphins: don’t forget to rest and play. With all that needs to be done on our Mother Earth, play refreshes our spirit and renews us. Our inner child needs lots of rest and silly fun to be in the creative spirit that will solve the problems at hand. Teamwork and Cooperation are the order of the day.
Thank you for creating these bridges of love-light for You, your family and friends and our very amazing, mysterious and Divine home- planet Earth.
I first began writing my blog in 2010 as backup material and handouts for classes I was teaching. Since glorious Spring has arrived I wanted to republish one of my favorites. This one was first published April 13, 2011.
You may want to try making your own flower essences.
I love Green Hope Farm Essences. They have a wide variety. I have enjoyed their Irish Collection very much. As you browse their website, the write-ups for each flower are so in-depth and spiritual that just reading about each flower starts your appreciation ofwhat they have to share with you.
“Earth, 114 million years ago, one morning just after sunrise: The first flower ever to appear on the planet opens up to receive the rays of the sun.”
“Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans, however briefly, to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature.”
Sananda has told me many times that beauty contains truth. Also that when we are vibrating at our Love Nature, we can appreciate beauty and crave to have beauty in our lives.
Flowers have learned a lot in 114 million years of how to live and thrive on Earth.
They have an infinite amount of wisdom to share with us.
As we have learned “Quite simply put flowers heal,” Dr. Edward Bach.

The single video above shows in a very simple way how to make your own flower essences. Why bother?
“Every flower bears a starry imprint.” Paracelsus
Many subtle things happen for you while making and using flower essences. Flowers represent the Divine Mystery of LOVE. You may have heard the expression: God laughs in flowers. Also one of my favorites that has been seen posted in many a garden public and private:
The Lord God planted a garden
In the first white days of the world,
And He set there an angel warden
In a garment of light unfurled.
The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God’s heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
–Dorothy Frances Gurney in “Magic Gardens” by Corinne Heline, New Age Press 1944
A metaphysical principle states that all thought is creative. Take that one step further with the principle that we can only think one thought at a time. Next, God’s thoughts are real and eternal and are love. Flowers bring us in tune with this reality as they are from the light. As you stand still and look to the top or sides of a flower, softly focusing your attention, you may observe this light or aura.
When we work with flower essences we are working with God’s thoughts in spirit, manifested in form here in the physical. Another way of saying this is that flowers are a manifestation of the light or angelic kingdoms. We can think of flowers as angels manifest.
Another metaphysical principal we are working with is that God is all Good. God has created every living thing as a unique manifestation, whether it is a snowflake, bird, or human. Each is unique in some way. Flowers are like that. Each has its own vibrational signature even within its own species. Roses have unique qualities such as peace and harmony within the same type of plant. Because of these principles and unique mysterious qualities of the Divine we can tap into the subtle vibrations of a plant and bring that quality to our own being and consciousness. As we do this we are lifted above the thought-form that caused our distress.
Because we can only think one thought at a time, and because we are connected with all that is, nature, God, and the universe we can utilize the vibration and light of the flower to join with our light and beingness and raise our frequencies. In doing so we may harmonize our emotional body, which releases any energy that is not of a high vibration such as fear (stress), anxiety etc. which we know, over time, does not bring our birthright of Health.
Flower essences work on our subtle bodies. In knowing and believing that we have subtle bodies a whole new world is opened up to us. We can hold our thought on the beauty, fragrance, shape, and essence of a flower and in that way prepare for what it has to give us. We can also use prepared flower essences that carry the signature vibration, or essence of the flower, shrub, or tree. Flowers, like people, live for appreciation. As you stand and appreciate a flower you may see its petals turn toward you. As you are in the state of appreciation you are in the same vibraton as love and you are in tune with the Divine Mystery. As you “tune in” to the flower you may begin the process of your own Divine inspiration. This in and of itself is very uplifting. We already know that as we uplift ourselves we begin attacting more of the same qualities. Start observing which flower you are attracted to. That flower has a gift for you.
Another aspect of flower essences is the fact that we are literally sending a telegraphic message to the Angelic kingdom that says, “help! I’m asking for one or several of your light qualities to help me balance my emotions, thoughts, attitudes to harmony, love, and joy. Thank you. Would you share your essence with me for that purpose?” Angels and flowers prefer to be asked for specific help. They do not interfere with you or your Divine Free Will but “live” to help humanity at their request.
I hope you will consider these thoughts and try them out. One of the things I love about working with flowers is how fun it is to discover the many mysteries of their world. I always feel more joy and delight after working with them. Being in nature of itself is uplifting, and discovering the infinite ways God’s love is given to us makes it even more worthwhile. So, have fun experimenting with making your own flower essences or just plant a garden and sit quietly in it often. Much love to you, Nina
When I was growing up in the 1950s, my mom, dad, sister and I would all sit on the couch and watch TV together. Most of the programs were G-rated, even though that was before ratings.
When we were watching and a commercial came on, I would ask my mom, “Is the show over?” I really wanted to see the end and feared I had missed it.
She often teased me about this because I asked that so often.
Now in my adult life I still have that feeling that I am going to miss the “heaven on earth” promised by the Golden Age of Aquarius. That passes quickly as I observe little things that are the beginnings of The New Earth, NOW.
This last Sunday I woke up to a moment of Heaven on Earth as I saw the sunrise and the full moonset. I don’t often get to see the sunrise here in the mountains, as there is often cloud cover or fog in the early morning. Seeing the Full moon set is also a rarity. We had what is called here “a bluebird day.” Spectacular clear blue sky with white barked aspens, which are leaf-less, giving a stark, beautiful backdrop to the Grand Tetons on the horizon.
I haven’t missed heaven on earth as it is here now in these serene moments that I get to receive into my awareness.
Thank you, Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature.
Sananda has taught me that we live in a holographic Universe. The great is in the small and the small in the great. Rumi has taught us that the one drop of water contains the whole ocean.
So, my dear readers, we can collect these moments and add them to the collective consciousness of heaven on earth until it is evident for all.
Don’t worry. Be happy. We didn’t miss it.
Be aware of the moments you are adding to the whole. My higher self often reminds me, “one grain of rice” — as a thought, happy feeling, compassion, joy, appreciation, being the love that you are — does add to the creation, no mater how small.
These small actions can tip the scale to goodness for all sentient beings living on earth.
So smile today– laugh, jump, dance or Love all the good that is here just for YOU.
Mother Teresa reminds us: do small things with great love.
You will reap the reward of feeling very good.
The videos today from Lorna Byrne demonstrate how we can help ourselves, and Mother Nature, by growing in LOVE.
Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature are leading us.
All of the Elemental Kingdoms are cheering us on and teaching us by being themselves. Water shows us the true nature of Love, miraculous. Moving and giving life to whatever it touches: clear, whole, moving and constantly changing form. Air: breathing us to our Divine Nature and connection with all that is. Fire: sunshine, starlight, the perfect manifestation of love-light. A continuous and eternal symbol of a loving Father-Mother God. And Earth, our home. Earth, so beautiful that legend has it that visitors from many star systems come here to witness the wonder and limitless beauty of her.
Sananda has told me many times that the birthing of the New Earth will be grass roots changes. You and I in our thoughts, feelings, words and deeds are bringing Heaven to Earth.
Appreciation of this incredible home opens our creativity and inspires us to bring our own unique contribution to this incredible healing and awakening.
Today, I wanted to share the YouTube video above with you as these lovely women have inspired me to give more to our Mother Earth. I love my Irish Heritage. If you give yourself the time to just relax into the video in a receptive mode you may experience a new opening to the magic and mystery of working with the land. Being with the myriad of nature spirits and the infinite variety of weather, seasons, plants, animals and elements can give you a new lease on an abundant life that is all around you but often unseen.
This exploration can give you untold experiences of joy and wonder.
I read, but I can’t remember the reference, that a scientist calculated that if we planted one trillion trees, climate change would be averted. The natural balance of climate would return.
Your one tree planted and cared for is the beginning.
Flowers, Gardens and Flower Essences have always been some of my favorite bridges of love light. Whether I’m in very intense circumstances or just a slight melancholy mood they have never failed to uplift me. I have written extensively about their inspirational and uplifting properties in this blog. Today I will expand upon those.
I first was aware of the Scarlet Pimpernel when I was nine years old. I was helping my Mom weed our garden and she was pulling out heaps of Scarlet Pimpernels. At the time, I didn’t know their name, and neither did she. I said, “Mom, these are so pretty. They don’t look like weeds.” “No, they are weeds.”
I was looking closely at them with their delicate color and sweet shape. I couldn’t really believe they were weeds, and felt a little sad seeing them piled up and then tossed in the garbage can. The other sad part was we just left plain dirt in that spot and didn’t plant more flowers. It was about 50 years later that I discovered their name and very real significance in my life.
These little flowers, which are called the wayside flowers or “weather glass” in the United Kingdom, would become my guide and teacher over many years. They are called the “Weather Glass” because when they are open, a sunny day; closed, rain or fog. Their presence has had such a positive and helpful effect on my personal, spiritual life that I have decided to write a book about them.
I will be excerpting portions of this book over the next few months: Sananda’s Flower,The Scarlet Pimpernel. Seeing the great in the small and the small in the great. Copyright 2021, by Nina Lee Wilkins.
Today I hope you will receive an uplift as I have from the Photographs of these Flowers. The “Scarlets,” as I like to call them, are in the photo above.
Over the years, I have used and discovered many flower essence companies. Bach Flower Essences, the leader, and several others. I have looked for a company that has made “Scarlet Pimpernel” essences and just found one a few months ago; Green Hope Farm. I ordered the Scarlet Pimpernel from Ireland, delightful, and one from Italy. I love them both; such a discovery and surprise after all these years. I have made my own, also, which always gives me joy.
Green Hope Farm is a treasure if you are new at using flower essences or have tried many other companies. Either way, these are the highest frequencies I have discovered so far.
I receive benefits just by reading their descriptions on their website.
Whether looking at photos of flowers with their amazing ethereal colors, using flower essences or using essential oils as aroma therapy or skin conditioner, or sitting next to them in your garden, flowers are my favorite bridges of love light. Don’t forget, flowers live for appreciation. As you tell them how much you appreciate them you may even even see them nod or turn their head towards you. Sananda has told me often that they are helping heal Grandmother Earth and Mother Nature, including us.
In the animal kingdoms the hummingbird is the totem of Joy. Whenever a hummingbird comes close to me and I hear its sound and feel its vibration, I do feel Joy. Its colors are so alive, radiant and glistening; so vibrant. Hummingbirds can fly backwards, forwards and straight up so quickly that their flash of color seems to clear away any old, stagnant energy in the air. It’s easy to see why they are the totem of Joy.
Sananda has told me often that if I am feeling Joyful I’m doing my purpose.
Joy contains love, peace, happiness, fun, humor, laughs, creativity, inspiration and is a frequency that strengthens you. Such a small word with a huge impact on our lives.
The thing about Joy it is a gift from Divine Love that is a part of us and always available. It is our presence in the stillness. Joy will bubble up from our beingness when given a chance.
When I first learned to channel higher frequency guides, one of the first questions we would ask of our guides was, “Is it possible to live with Real Joy?” (Opening to Channel, by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer). The guides had many thoughts for us that would help us live with Joy. Because that was a question that always got strong response from our guides, Joy was given an important role in our Spiritual growth and Life Choices. So much so that Sanaya channeled her first book from her guide, Orin, teaching about Joy; Living with Joy by Sanaya Roman.
Take Joy breaks in your day. Joy uplifts, and from that place your creativity will flow.
Some Joy thoughts from the book, Joy, written and compiled by M.H. Clark:
Prepare for Joy and believe in Joy.
“These are the days of miracle and wonder.” Paul Simon
“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.” Marianne Williamson
“I thank you God for most this amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes.” E.E. Cummings.
So today, savor Joy.
Below, I included one of my favorite pieces of music, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” It’s even better because it’s a flash mob in a shopping mall in Japan. I never tire of hearing it.
I hope I have given you Joy today.
“The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you.” John Greenleaf Whittier
There are powerful spiritual Laws we can all learn and use.
Emily Dickinson said it: “All I know of Love, is Love is all there is.”
“Be still and know that I am God.” The presence of our Creator wells up within us in the stillness. We feel peace and joy.
I love Eckhart Tolle’s book Stillness Speaks, a wonderful book that affirms this idea.
Meditating is the ideal way to hear your still, small voice. The YouTube video at the end of this blog is a meditation with Eckhart Tolle. It’s not a lecture. You can meditate right along with Eckhart. It brought me so much peace and the feeling that all is well.
God is Love and everywhere present.
“Our only responsibility is to accept the Atonement for ourselves.” Atonement means being at one with our Creator and all that is, Oneness. (Via “A Course in Miracles,” Foundation for Inner Peace.)
“Birds of a feather flock together”– My mom’s favorite expression. Better known as the Law of Attraction.
You are a perfect, unique, innocent, child of God, who loves you beyond your comprehension. You inherited your Father-Mother God’s ability to create. You create by your thoughts, words and feelings. Tell the story to yourself and others, your story, the story that you WANT to live. As we affirm and tell our story the way we want it to be we create it. We need to believe it to see it. — Sananda, Abraham and Saint Germaine
There are two very important components to manifesting, allowing and receiving your Good. One, Forgiveness of yourself and others, and two, BEING in the qualities of gratitude, thanks and appreciation.
Forgiveness returns us to love. A wonderful book by that name, A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson, teaches us, in depth, how Love does its job as we forgive ourselves and others.
Thanks, Gratitude and Appreciation put us in the vibration of Love where we can create and allow our good. A wonderful book, Ask and It is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, teaches us the nuts and bolts of vibrational creation and manifesting, by using rampages of appreciation and intentionally feeling good by focusing on what we want to create.
Note: we also have the ability to temporarily block our good by un-love, which is in truth a fiction because Love is all there is. We do this by using our free will backwards by criticizing, condemning and complaining. We can quickly jump forward by realizing we are love and have the ability to create a wonderful life for ourselves by returning to Love.
There you have it. Many of the simple yet powerful laws of the Universe that manifest in infinite ways.
So, as Abraham says, through the Hicks material, the most important thing is for us to feel good. As we feel good we can create our desires.
Enjoy the fun, joy and satisfaction of creating your good by letting Love do its job.
“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” —John Muir
I love to find things in nature that demonstrate transformation from one form to another. An egg, to a caterpillar, to a chrysalis, then butterfly are familiar ones. Another favorite is tadpoles to frogs. A caterpillar walking on the ground and then flying is very dramatic. The little swimming tadpole is then jumping and swimming. The frog has a life on land and in the water with quite a loud voice. I love the infinite variety of forms in nature.
A flower that shows that transformation is the Santa Barbara Daisy in the photo above.
These little flowers start out as the tiny pinkish-purple flowers and as they grow turn white.
You can see these flowers growing profusely along the California coast. Whenever I would take a walk in Carmel and see them, somehow my spirits would be lifted. Even though small, they radiate joy.
A few years ago, when I was teaching classes about making flower essences, I chose this little flower though time constraints left that one undone.
I love synchronicity and flower essences. Recently these combined when a dear friend of mine recommended Green Hope Farm Flower Essences to me. I chose Sea Mayweed, from Ireland, to order not realizing it was the Santa Barbara Daisy. One thing I love about this company is that Molly Sheehan gives extensive written descriptions of what the flower and its elemental can give to you. For Sea Mayweed she writes: “I help you center in your own power and Destiny. I am the balanced and full use of my third chakra’s strengths.” This is very close to what I had written about the Santa Barbara Daisy’s essence several years ago.
I just received my order from Green Hope Farm yesterday, and this new discovery has made me so happy. Everything in Divine right timing, as this company has been around for more than 30 years. I have used many other companies’ essences over the years and they have always helped me. This company is a treasure, and I will continue to learn from them. They are based in New Hampshire, though they sell flower essences from all over the world.
This company has made many essences to help us through our own transformations in these times. I feel they are very effective, though I have yet to try the new ones: “A Tool Box For a New Earth. Green Hope Farm Flower Essences from the 2019 growing season.” There are 12 essences in this collection. I’m going to try Bears Breeches, “Stability in the void between the collapse of old structures and the birth of the new, support as we create new structures for a New Earth.” I hope you will check them out.
Many years ago, Sananda told me that flowers are some of the strongest and wisest beings on Earth and a definite bridge of love light. You might want to discover and make your own. (Instructional video in a previous blog.)
