Boronia is incredible effective for those seeking a better understanding of what has been and how to move ahead.
Plant some, find a lovely posy, sit under a Boronia bush!, try flower essences, perfumes or oils or perhaps sketch, paint or take photos of the blossom's beauty and energy for yourself.

🌻 Mexican Mallow Bush ~ The Language of Flowers

Recently on my travels in Far North Queensland, I was thrilled to finally see the Mexican Mallow Bush in flower!
(Phymosia umbellata)

In The Language of Flowers, this plant shares the following energies - the warming of friendships and relationships, contentment, emotional freedom, sharing. This vibrant Mexican native plant does well in semi-shade to full sun while being tolerant to light frost. Grows to about 2.5m in height oh and it’s on my wish list!

🌸 Flower of the Day ~ Flannel Flower (Actinotus helianthi)

Flannel flower webcards new

These downy soft, though incredibly strong little flowers say: calm down, don't worry, I offer comfort and peace. She hugs you, comforts you but she encourages you all the same to move through challenges with courage and strength. You will do this. There will be a new beginning and you are going to survive.
To give Flannel Flowers to another is also to acknowledge that the other person is hurt, frightened or unsure, but you are standing with them.
To have them around your home or space brings people closer together, assists with ensuring true intimacy and with that of course honesty of feelings.
They are becoming a favourite again in Weddings and I can see why. They offer a calmness, clarity of feelings, soft healing of emotional issues and they assist new beginnings and as I'm mentioned intimacy. I don't think a second wedding should be without them!
Flannel Flower Essence is used to help people find calm and also intimacy with others. It is very good when used in situations of emotions conflicts.

May Nature Always Bless YOU!

This week I have been collating my old floral friends as I work through a new selection. 
This particular meditation, about five years old now, is one that is often requested so I thought I'd share it with you all today. 
Bunches of love,
