If you were a flower, who would you be?

If I wrote a book it would be called, she dreams in flowers. And I will. And right now I do. When I'm processing something the right flower medicine will come to me in my dream until I meet these flowers in real life. Sometimes the irl element isn't necessary and I'm getting comfortable with that.

I dream in flowers. My dreams are whispers, felt by these plants which come to give me their medicine and support me. And then like a great teacher, she will tell me her story and I’ll pay careful attention to all the beautiful details. She’s always patient with me as I re-call, re-member. 

Then I'll go into research mode until this flower consumes me. What's the deeper meaning? What's the medicine? Where can I meet her in her natural home? How can I walk, talk and act like this plant? This is my process. But it's not 'special' or unique. We can all do this when one tiny door has opened a crack in our hearts. ::

Messages of love. Of self-compassion and hope. Of belief in my innate goodness and strength. And also grounded practical support.

I am divine. The flowers tell me so. 
I am divine. My body grounds these visions of heart, of soul, and it really is practical magic. Everyday.

Open your heart like a lily.
Stand tall like a sunflower.
Be wildly sensual like a juicy red hibiscus.
Just don’t forget to be you.
The flower that you are, so unique and perfect.

If you'd like some support connecting with your plant teachers I'd be honored to create a flower essence formula for you. Learn more here.
