In the Gardens this Morning

Beginning my walk with a stroll through the Arbor Garden, the garden is still in an early morning mist.

The garlic is looking sassy in one of the vegetable gardens.

I spent most of the weekend in the berry patch, pruning out dead Raspberry canes from the Raspberries and then all the Raspberry canes and other rogue plants from the Black Currants, Blueberries, Gooseberries and Red Currants.  You can see Sheba inspecting my work.

Sheba continuing our round with a walk up the hedgerow as the fog lifts.

The Plums look poised to burst into blossom today as our first sun in about a week shines today.

More piles on the other side of the berry patch. Can you see that tree I cut out? It was a box elder that had sprung up in the Gooseberries!

One of the early Primroses.

If ever there was a Flower that looked like it is dancing, it’s Pink Magnolia.  It’s I AM affirmation is “I AM comfort amidst times of change.”

There is something so fun about Grape Hyacinth.  They are always the first Flower children pick in the May gardens.

One of the little old ladies who taught me to garden when I was a young woman always called these THE VEES, and she was very intent on rooting every last one of them out of her garden because Violets like to take over.  I tried to rein them in for a number of years but now, I’ve thrown caution to the wind and have let them GO!

Have a wonderful day!

It’s Time.

The Angels have been talking about the Great Leap for many years, that paradigm shifting, consciousness expanding, chakra lift off that will usher in a new Heaven and a new Earth for us all.

The leap is here.  It is now.

Around us, we see the collapse of all the old structures and the dire results of our adherence to these structures.  But that can be done with. We can begin again and be our best, most selfless selves beyond all that went before.  Patriarchy can dissolve into nothingness in an instant. We need prepare no more for our efforts to be the solution we seek and the love we know is there behind all the illusionary forms of hatred and selfishness.

So many of you have tirelessly prepared. I’ve seen it.  Day by day for thirty years we visited and lifted each other up in our efforts to heal. You have been there for me, and I hope the Flowers and all of us here have been there for you.

I bear witness to your heroic work.  You’ve done so much intensive soul searching.  You’ve owned every piece of what has happened to you, oftentimes shouldering burdens that were not even yours.

Now is the time to throw off this yoke of sifting through what happened and sorting out responsibility. Now is the time to simply do what we know we need to do- treat each sentient being on this planet as the sacred being it is. Treat dear Earth as the most precious of friends. Put aside fears for the limited self and rise up into love for all.

Each day I check in on what Greta Thunberg is up to.  She inspires me.  She fills my heart with joy and hope.  As she awakens in her mission, she grows increasingly specific in her willingness to do anything to save us all.  Recently, she said she would fly no more because of the carbon footprint of jet travel.

Are we ready to live like Greta?  She reminds us all that none of us is powerless to act and change the world.  Each of us can make meticulous life affirming choices in each moment of every day.  We can speak kindly and act from the heart with each creature we encounter in our day.  We can make the tedious but vital choices to give up immediate pleasures for the sake of our planet.  We can do whatever it takes to save our planet and ourselves.

I know you are ready.  Let’s leap together. All in. All one.


Recently,  I’ve gotten a number of messages from the Angels saying that the institutions of patriarchy no longer have any bone structure but exist almost like illusions without substance.

Not that everyone is  behaving like this is true…..but the Angels keep returning to the point that  patriarchy and all its structures are no longer supported by the vibration of the planet.

Given the Angels’ remarks that patriarchal institutions have no life force any more, and their structures exist almost as mirages, I was startled by the fire in Notre Dame.  The fire felt like a symbolic moment for all of us on Earth but symbolic of what?

Notre Dame, Our Lady, Mother Mary, an eternal being of the Sacred Feminine.

Does the Sacred Feminine want any institution  to containing her, even when it is a beautiful container?  Did the structure of Notre Dame express her? Did it ever express her?  Was this fire an example of the Sacred Feminine rising up like a Phoenix from the ashes, unbound and free?   Does this fire remind us that any binding no matter how beautiful is still a binding?  Or is this fire  pure tragedy?

Several times, Tibetan Buddhist monks have come to our area to do one of their incredible mandalas in sand. After many weeks’ work, when the mandala is complete and radiantly beautiful, they mix the sand together and take it to release in the Connecticut River.  I have sometimes found it very painful to watch them celebrate their mandala with its destruction.

This year has seen our family losing another piece of property we thought would be part of our lives for a long time.  I have been very sad about its loss.  That it was taken from us through an abuse of our goodwill makes it all very painful.  The last time I was on this land, I knew it was goodbye, and I tried to give it back to God as fully as I could.

Such few words for something so complex.  Let go and Let God.

Centered deep within myself, I can find a palpable feeling that growing spiritually is more important than preserving the material world in forms I like.  As a Capricorn, this has been a hard truth for me to grasp even briefly, but the Universe keeps bringing home this lesson to me in large neon letters, so I get a lot of practice.

To have even a glimmer of feeling that it was okay that I lost this land and okay that the Sacred Feminine wants to take a new unbound form than Notre Dame, feels like grace.  As the old chestnut goes, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience not visa versa.  I wish I could have learned this without attending 2X4 school, but I couldn’t.  Transformation often feels like destruction, but it’s actually transformation.

Animal Teachers and the Positive Pathways of Flower Essences

These thirty years, I’ve searched for ways to explain Flower Essences, and tried many descriptions on for size.  To talk about Flower Essences requires that we see the universe as both matter and energy with energy creating matter not visa versa, and this is complicated. Fortunately to experience their gifts requires no intellectual description or understanding.

My introduction to Flower Essences came after I had worked in the gardens with Angels and Elementals for a number of years. Everything the Angels and Elementals had suggested I do resulted in gardens of such beauty and vibrancy that I followed their counsel with delight and faith.  When these beloved partners said, “We would like you to make Flower Essences.” and matter-of-factly explained what Flower Essences were,  I was overjoyed to make them. I used them with complete conviction.

Believing came before seeing, but seeing swiftly followed believing.

After a couple of years, the Flower Essences were flying out of here pretty much of their own volition, but my charge from the Angels and Elementals was to try and explain them as well as share them.

While I struggled with different metaphors, another group explained Flower Essences both without words and better than I ever would: the Animals.

Flower Essences and the Animals are a match made in heaven.  From the first, the Animals revealed to their people what is possible with Flower Essences.  We are often the call of last resort for folks with a sick or anxious animal.  We are also lucky enough to hear so much positive feedback about the surprising healings that occurred when Animals get to use the Essences in this eleventh hour- or right off the bat too..  We are lucky to have so many people give our Essences a whirl for themselves, because the Animals in their care have shown them their gifts.

All the Animal ambassadors in the world still left me needing to give some explanation of Flower Essences to folks without Animals in their lives.  I began to use analogies like roadmaps, tuning forks and electrical upgrades for our circuit boards.  I describe Flower Essences as the divine wisdom of the Flower in a more portable and permanent form than the Flower petals. No matter how often I write about Flower Essences, I always have an ear cocked for a new way to describe these dear Flower friends.

Today someone used the phrase in a conversation with me, “positive rehearsals to create positive pathways.”

I liked the phrase “positive pathways.”

All these years later, we have many documents both online and in print that delineate the positive pathways of our Flower Essences..  We can usually take your request for specific help and arrive at specific suggestions of Flower Essences by using all our written materials. However one wonderful thing is that the energy of the Flower Essence often comes out to introduce itself when it is needed even before we have made a written material match-up.

All the staff goddesses here have their own experiences of the Flower Essences. They also get to hear your stories about what Flower Essences have done for you and the Animals in your life. The staff goddesses also know their way around the many documents online and in written form sharing what the Flowers have said about the specific gifts of their vibrations. But oftentimes the Flower Essences cut to the chase.

Oftentimes when us staff goddesses are considering your concerns and what Flower Essences to suggest, a Flower name floats into our heads, and when we check the description it fits it exactly.  Yes, some of this is because we know the Flower Essences well, but often the suggestions surprises us.  You’ll use a very specific phrase for what you are looking for, and when we check out the description of the Flower that called itself to our attention, it will have that phrase embedded in its description.

This morning, for instance, someone wanted an Essence to help a young man who believes he is bad, and the Flower Bleeding Heart Vine nudged its way into my consciousness. When I went to read about this Essence for confirmation, there in the description this Flower Essence had given about itself was the phrase “helps us vomit up any confining pattern or a sense of ourselves as bad.”

Flowers KNOW their gifts. They know their positive pathways and where these pathways will take someone. They will work with their co-creators, the Angels and Elementals, to use words, dreams, energetic nudges, Animal beloveds, and coincidences, to call their Flower Essences to our attention.  When we ask to heal something, the appropriate Flower allies answer our call in the most inventive ways.  They will move heaven and earth to get their healing energy  into our hands.

So why do I ever worry about the limitations of my word choices or analogies?  The Flowers, the Angels and the Elementals have it completely under control.

As with so many posts, I thought this was going to be about one thing, and it’s turned out to be about another thing entirely. I began with a worry that I needed to cultivate a new metaphor for Flower Essences in order for people to understand them. Would positive pathways be my new go-to phrase? Who knows?

One thing I did realize as I let this blog flow is that Flower Essences and the Angels and Elementals that bring them to us have their own tools.  They have so many ways to bring Flower Essences to our attention besides words, and they use these tools every day..

As the Angel of Flower Essences said to me as I ended this post, “Don’t worry- bee happy- we’ll get the Flower Essences out into the world no matter what.  This is the Age of Flowers, and Flower Essences’ time has come.”

The Elementals Need You!

Yesterday I read that the population of insects on our dear planet is down by almost 50%.  This sent me back to the Elementals with questions and concerns. Once again they reminded me that our individual efforts to take care of our Earth home matter VERY MUCH.

We talked about how much growing plant pollinators helps, but mostly, they wanted to take the conversation back to LAND CLEARING.

They said emphatically IT MAKES AN ENORMOUS DIFFERENCE when we ask them, the  Elementals,  to energetically cleanse and clear land we love, live on and/or care for.

LAND CLEARING matters because the Elementals who do the land clearing  are the consciousness that brings our creations into form and therefore they are the consciousness that can take it out of form and transmute our unfortunate and negative creations into something benign even harmonious.

Here is my description of ELEMENTALS in the document Green Hope Farm Flower Essences Vocabulary 101  which can be found on the resources page of the website. It feels very appropriate on this second day of Spring to write about Elementals as this is their season.

While Angels are the architects of all form, Elementals take the Angels’ plans and hold a mental focus to transform these plans into physical reality. There is an Elemental manifesting and then holding in form everything in creation. This means there are wise and ancient Elementals using their mental focus to hold in manifestation the oldest trees on the planet, and there are Elementals new to this work given the job of holding in manifestation Dandelion blossoms in supermarket parking lots.
Elementals manifest and hold in form all things in the natural world as well as all man made creations no matter how ill-advised our creations are. They manifest negative inventions of mankind as a service to us so through our own experiences of our miscreations we can find our way back to alignment with the divine plan.
Elementals often appear to people as fairies, gnomes, elves and other fairy tale creatures. One of the women who worked here for many years saw a small fairy with each bottle of our Flower Essences. Sometimes they will appear to people as balls of light. This is how they have appeared on films of crop circles being created. Elementals are responsible for the creation of all crop circles. (I this blog post I have added a series of photos I took of a lovely sunset where an Elemental appears in the photos).
Elementals are very misunderstood and little appreciated. They are often very reserved even cool in their dealings with people because of so many negative experiences with us. They must deal with all our mental, emotional and chemical pollution of their creations, and unless we ask them to clean our messes up benignly, they have no choice but to bring on extreme weather to clear up our garbage. This situation in which we ruin their creations and do not acknowledge their tireless service to us is very unfortunate as we would literally have no planet to inhabit without Elementals!
Elementals are wonderful partners in any endeavor bringing much humor and problem solving skills to the table. They are the manifestors of all form so they can help you bring your dreams into reality!
With LAND CLEARING, the Elementals’ focus is on taking things out of form or transmuting them so they no longer cause harm.

For example, Elementals hold DDT in form for us because that is something we wanted them to create and hold in form for us. Now that we know the damage DDT does,  we can ask them to take DDT out of form and transmute it into something else. There is much more DDT still in our environment than you would imagine, and of course there are so many newer and equally damaging pesticides.

Here’s a link several  posts I have written on LAND CLEARING- You’ll notice that I mention many helpful beings for doing this work- If you need to make it very simple for yourself, the Elementals say just ask for them to do this work.  They want to make it as easy for us as they can!

Land Clearing Technique

Land Clearing, an Elemental Request

Maybe We Should Call in Land Tuning versus Land Clearing

Healing Earth

The first post is a straightforward description of land clearing.

The next two posts have  more background on the whys of land clearing with the third post addressing your questions about land clearing.

In the Healing Earth post, my most recent discussion of land clearing and cleansing,  I mentioned that I am now clearing and cleansing with more SPECIFICITY, and here is what I mean by that.

When I call in the group to cleanse, clear and rebalance a piece of land, I now ask them specifically to remove anything that seeks to disturb including all toxic heavy metals, all radiation ( such as cell tower radiation) all plastics, all pesticides, all herbicides, all fungicides, all moldicides, all man made chemicals that harm the air, earth and water of the land space I am asking to have cleansed, all emotional negativity, all astral beings that seek to disturb- well the list goes on and on.

The importance here is the SPECIFICITY because the Elementals must respect our free will and only clear what we specifically ask them to clear- I include the air over the land in my request.

I ask that everything that is being removed be sent through a christed grid to the central sun to be TRANSMUTED.

First a reminder that a christed grid is not a religious thing,  It is a kind of energetic purifying filter that means anything you send out through this grid will not return to you as your energy is scrubbed clean from it and there is no return address on what you have cleared.

Here is an example of a situation in which this might be relevant.  Say your neighbor hates you because you have too many cats.  This neighbor may be sending anger to you and the land you live on and this negativity will stay on your land until you clear it with the help of the Elementals or it is cleared by extremes of weather ( the only choice the Elementals have to regulate things if we don’t get involved).

If you don’t want your neighbor’s negativity to bog you, your cats and the land down you need to ask the Elementals and the other beings I mention in the land clearing posts to remove the anger by sending it through a christed grid.  Washed clean, this anger won’t come back to you nor will it boomerang back to your neighbor. Asking that be transmuted is equally important as you want the anger to be raised in vibration to something harmonious.

The problem with just sending anger straight back to your neighbor is that this neighbor might then just think it is you who is sending new anger all your own and then this neighbor may well send you more of his or her own anger in a vicious cycle.

Okay. What the heck is the central sun and why do I request that all energy be sent there to be transmuted? I don’t know. The Angels and Elementals have always asked me to use this description for a place where this kind of transmuting work can be done. Since, after thirty years of partnership, they have proven completely trustworthy in their advice to me, I am willing to take this on faith and just send it there,

The most important thing  is that we request that the stuff being removed is TRANSMUTED.

Many people have worried that clearing a piece of land just means dumping the stuff somewhere else on Earth. By requesting that everything being removed be TRANSMUTED, this does not happen. The dictionary definition of TRANSMUTATION  is the action of changing or the state of being changed into another form. Requesting that the Elementals, the manifestors of all form, transmute the negative forms we have created from ego is one of  the most powerful thing we can do to help our dear Earth.

As a community of Flowers, Angels, Nature Spirits, Dogs, Cats and even some People, Green Hope Farm can be a funny place……and I love telling you all about it!
