It All Starts With a Hello - Deepening Your Connection with Nature

IMG_6442

I long for the day that I can create Nature's Sanctuary, a place where Nature is acknowledged, seen, connected with and honored.  Where a single step upon the grounds surrounds a visitor with welcoming love, respite and healing; where that step provides sanctuary.

Gardens are built for many different reasons; as beautiful visual treasures;  to attain a state of perfection in the art of gardening; to demonstrate wealth; to compliment architecture; to create a sense of tranquility. As beautiful or striking as these gardens are, they lack an actual connection with nature.

If we do not acknowledge Nature, it does not acknowledge us.

Hosta
Grace, Love and Forgiveness
Answered Prayers

'You are love. Anything else is something you need not carry.'
Message from Flowering Hosta 

I walked past Hosta this morning and it gave me a gentle nudge about its message and powerful connection that it carries when it blossoms.

Hosta in bloom (with a white flower) is connected with the archangel Sandalphon. Sandalphon is one of two angels who were first human. Metaron is the other. One of Sandalphon's roles as Archangel is to gather our prayers and send them to the heavens. Sandalphon spends time with the blossoming Hosta, as it's beautiful flowers

Chamomile: Happy, Uplifting, Unconditional Love

Chamomile 
Happy, Uplifting, Unconditional Love

Last year I planted Chamomile, but not this year. However this year I am finding it hidden among a border that is far away from where it was planted last year. And every time I see it peeking out at me, it lifts my heart and makes me smile.

Today's Chamomile Mandala shares the beautiful, happy, uplifting and unconditionally loving energy of Chamomile.

It is always amazing to me, but not a surprise really, that when Nature Speaks, it is in alignment with what we know about it in its healing form. Chamomile for instance in all of its medicinal forms; as an herb, an essential oil, a flower essence and a homeopathic remedy; can lift depression, calm anxiety and reduce stress.

When we look at a Chamomile Mandala and listen to its message, its message and its healing abilities echo each other.

Draw in the uplifting, supportive energy of Chamomile today through its happy, loving, joyful Mandala

Every Creation has its own Life Cycle

‘The seeds of creation and inspiration are here for you. Nurture your ideas and your hopes and dreams for they too have their own cycle of life.’ Message from Magnolia

Magnolia is such a fascinating messenger about The Divine Feminine and The Cycles of Life. In its Fall incarnation, Magnolia develops amazing pink pods that hold vibrant red seeds.

In the Fall Magnolia focuses on the cycles of life and reminds us that life cycle does not refer to only our birth and death; at many points in our lives there is a life cycle. Ideas have a life cycles, creativity has a life cycle, relationships have a life cycle. Nature has a life cycle. At any given point we are moving through the various four seasons of the life cycle.

Seeing these cycles will help you connect to the natural flow of creation and manifestation.  Christine

Don't Fight, Claim!

You do not need to fight for equality. You need to see yourself as whole. You are not missing or lacking anything. If you see the power of you, and someone else does not don't fight, claim. Shift your perception and shift your 'fight'. Rather than fighting to be equal, demand and claim what you want and deserve; to be seen as whole, powerful.  Magnolia

The Divine Feminine and Cycles of Life

‘There is a divine flow to all of life. Nature is a cathedral and the answers you seek are here.’ 
                                                                    Message From Magnolia

This message from Magnolia came in the early part of last Spring when Magnolia was just beginning to blossom.

Magnolia is not the only Nature element that talks about Nature being a cathedral. Rose of Sharon also shared this message last Summer as have the Fall leaves. Spend some time reflecting on this message. What does it mean to you, if Nature is a cathedral and the answers you seek can be found there?

In the winter, Magnolia holds her springtime blossoms protectively wrapped in grey-green velvety buds on gnarled branches. The beauty of her spring-time splendor lies hidden and protected until it is time to shine.
