This book began as a diary of a journey Omanisa went on with her husband in 2012, throughout outback Central Australia, six months after her grandmother died. Visiting places she had explored with her grandmother in childhood, Omanisa re-discovered the beautiful wildflowers her grandmother had photographed and written about in her book “Wildflowers and Plants of Inland Australia.”
With her Grandmother’s death already triggering a past life review, being back in the country she had explored with her Grandmother as a child made the experience all the more intense. As always, Om reached out to nature for support, asking the flower spirits to help her heal old wounds resurfacing from childhood. This book talks about Om’s journey through land and memory, and the healing she received from each flower spirit she met along the way.
Coming from a family of wildflower photographers, one of the ways Om connects with flowers is via macro photography. She is fascinated with the imagery of flowers, and the way these images, via colour therapy and sacred geometry, can have a therapeutic effect on the mind-body or aura. Each flower is like a doorway into healing, a gateway into the healing intelligence of nature. By reconnecting with nature, we reconnect with our wholeness. Another way Omanisa connects with the spirit of the flowers is via meditation and the written word; going into trance and pouring the experience forth onto the page.
Omanisa’s book “Wildflower Spirit Journey” is an amalgam of the diary she kept on her trek, the photographs she took and the shamanic healing journeys she went on to consciously access information about the wisdom each flower spirit had to share. Om includes a ‘how to’ section for healers and nature lovers who might want to learn more about the connection process. The cards can be used for readings, and for healing.
(The Flower Spirit cards are part of Om's OMANTRA mindfulness meditation method, with each card featuring Om's flower photography on one side, and a series of OMANTRA's on the other.)
