Nature has so much to offer us if we allow ourselves to slow down, be present, and open our hearts to receive her gifts.
We're halfway through 2020 and it has been a very intense year so far, probably quite literally for everyone on the planet. When life feels hard and everything might be uncertain in the world, it helps to remember that we can turn to the plant world for wisdom, support, and guidance.
Roses heal the heart
In times like these, I am thankful for the sweet, comforting flower medicine of roses to soothe and heal my heart.
It's been said that the Rose has the purest and most positive vibration of any living thing.
Rose activates your tenderness. Rose magnifies kindness and caring for yourself and others. Rose shields us from negativity and promotes a gentle strength. ~ Katie Hess, Flowerevolution: Blooming into Your Full Potential with the Magic of Flowers
Rose is the Queen of Flowers and one of the most beloved flowers in the world. Roses symbolize purification, peace, healing, romance, passion, and love in all forms.
In skincare Rose is highly emollient and anti-inflammatory, helping to fight premature aging, improving tone, texture, and elasticity. Rose is very soothing and gentle making it an excellent choice for pregnant women, babies, and sensitive skin.
Rose reminds us that we are made in the image of God, Goddess, Creator, Great Spirit. The I AM. Rose asks you to remember.
There is nothing within your being that is imperfect, nothing within you that wasn't born of LOVE. ~ Doreen Virtue, Flower Therapy: Welcome the Angels of Nature into Your Life
Rose activates heart energy
The flower medicine of Rose activates your life force with the electromagnetic, heart-centered energy of LOVE.
Your physical and emotional heart energy is quite powerful and can effect positive change in your immediate environment, your relationships, and ripple out into the world. This is based on the the research of HeartMath and the concept of Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart.
Dare to connect with your heart. You will be lifting not only yourself and those you love and care about, but also the world in which you live. ~ Doc Childre, HeartMath Founder
As Abraham Hicks has said, "One in the vortex is more powerful than millions who are not." The vortex is your heart energy. It is LOVE.
So let's allow the flower medicine of the ROSE to help us re-focus, with LOVE as the dominant vibration.
