Flower Essences

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.
