Healing Meditation : Fan Flower

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a sketch of a flower fairy I met on my Wildflower Spirit Journey through Central Australia. She belongs to a family of flowers called “fan” or “hand” flowers, because of their unique one-sided shape, but my inner child thinks of her as a “moth” flower, because she looks like a moth when her petals are only half opened.

Here is a snippet from my book….

“The first fan flower greeted me by entering my heart chakra and sweeping it clean like a broom. With every sweep, I could feel it pushing against the inner walls of my heart chakra, making them stretch and expand outwards. My heart-space began to feel larger, as though there were more room inside me for love. I felt like I could love more people and love all of them more than I had ever been able to love anyone before…”. (click here to read more)

Fan flowers open and cleanse your aura, especially your heart chakra. I’ve created a short meditation to help you connect with the spirit of this flower medicine below…

Tree Dryad – Healing Meditation

 

Tree dryads are tree spirits. They can be male or female, young or old. For the most part, they are shy, and rarely seen by humans. This tree dryad specialises in healing loneliness, abandonment and rejection wounds in the inner child, and she asked me to channel this healing through for you. Prints of Omanisa’s artwork are available for purchase on request.

The Forgiveness Cake

Fiona 11-11-14 138Yesterday a friend and her daughter came over for lunch, and they brought with them a few slices of this beautiful cake. It not only looked amazing, it tasted incredible too. I really loved the magic in this cake and could feel its effects on me even before it arrived, while it was being dreamt up and concocted over the weekend. I also felt a beautiful connection with the sacred geometry work incorporated into the cake, taught to my friend by a lovely lady named Starina.

I asked Fiona if she would mind if we created a blog to share with others, featuring the cake, her recipe and a link to Starina’s star symbols, and she said yes! So here is a story from Fiona, with photos scattered throughout, and a link to Starina’s work at the bottom. Fiona’s journey has very much mirrored my own this year, and it has been such a gift to receive this cake and the symbol embedded within, at the perfect moment, from two such beautiful women. This has transformed my heart.  Continue reading “The Forgiveness Cake”

Wholesome Cake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the first ‘magic’ cake I have made in months. It was a bit tricky finding the resources I needed while travelling throughout Europe, so for the most part I just surrendered and went with the flow. And when I first came home, my sciatic injury, which had flared up due to travel, drained me of any spare energy I might have had for creating magic in the kitchen. I eased my way in slowly, first with some tahini ice-cream biscuits, then some vegan cheese and finally this, a return to form with a new creation.

“What shall I make it for?”, I asked my husband. Sometimes, when I make desserts, they are just desserts. But I was in the mood for a little kitchen spell-craft.

“Structure. Support.”, he replied.

“Do you mean physically, on a musculoskeletal level?”, I asked, “For my hip injury?”

“Yes. A healing cake.”

I agreed, and set this intention as I gathered the ingredients, but as I went along, it felt like there were other layers or aspects to this cake. It needed to be simple and humble. It needed to be wholesome and to feel like comfort food. It also needed to have a light-hearted, uplifting mood to it, something that gave me hope.

I like the word wholesome. It seems innocent and mature at the same time, full and round without being pretentious or too self-conscious, luscious without being cheap and tacky, simple yet satisfying.

When I eat this cake, I feel like I am reconnecting with the simple things in life, as though I am following a trail of crumbs back into my centre, back into the warm light within that sustains me.

When I made it, I used brazil nuts for the base because they are so solid and strong. This seemed to match nicely with my husbands ‘structure and support’ intention. While making it, I visualised my auric field and my musculoskeletal system realigning themselves.

I pre-soaked the dates. This is the first time I have soaked anything. I instinctively felt as though I needed the softness of the water and I loved the way the dates swelled in the water, like an oasis in the desert drinking in nourishment. When I de-pipped the soaked dates, the flesh parted gently in my hands, as though I were peeling back layers of the aura and removing blockages with great ease. I kept the bulk of the soaked dates for the body of the cake, which needed to be softer, smoother and more moist, but I added three of them to the base to tie it all together.

I have been having a love affair with bananas lately, so they had to be in the cake. They fit the brief: simple, wholesome, light-hearted and nourishing!

There is something almost buttery or pancake batterish about this mix. I really enjoyed licking the bowl afterwards! The sunflower seeds are the really special ingredient here. They added a chewiness and body to the cake that it might not otherwise have had. Sunflower seeds full of sunlight to go with my yellow bananas. Delicious. As with the brazil nuts in the base, this ingredient is honouring the ‘structure and support’ intention for this cake. When I was a child, we had giant sunflowers in the garden and I loved harvesting the seeds.

Desert Heath Myrtle on the Sandy Blight Rd

Desert Myrtle MedicineImage

Desert Health Myrtle made my neck feel longer, almost as though it were helping me stretch out the kinks and compressions in my spine. Then I found myself rotating my head around in each direction, slowly, as though scanning the environment around me. It reminded me of what our blind owl Zing does- it’s almost as though she can turn her head all the way around and ‘look’ over her own shoulder at you. Really, she’s listening to the entire room to get a sense for what is where and who is doing what.

Daisy Bush at Areyonga

DAISY BUSH MEDICINE (essence)

Areyonga was a power place for me; the mountains reached out and connected with me, spoke with me. I haven’t seen a more beautiful place and it was delicious to be nestled so closely between two mountains. The echo was incredible. What I thought were two dogs barking at each other turned out to be one dog barking at himself.

I found two special flowers here, both within metres of one another, a fuchsia and a daisy. This was the first daisy I’d found on the trip and I’d really been looking forwards to connecting with daisy, so it was a magical moment for me. I’d headed in off the road, letting spirit guide my steps, drawn towards some mistletoe. As I stepped up to the tree I realised it wasn’t in flower, but when I looked down, right in front of me was this magnificent daisy bush.

Daisy spoke to me mostly in images and feelings, with the odd word thrown in.  I had to work with this medicine three times before I really grasped its purpose.

Frangipani Flower essence

Frangipani flower essence is one of my favourites essences for dissolving tension in relationships. It tends to work best if I give it to both people in a relationship conflict. I’ve had really good results giving it to siblings who are at war with one another and also to parents and children who aren’t getting along with each other. It’s particularly appropriate when there are power struggles occurring between people. The particular frangipani I use to make my essence is ‘sunrise’ or ‘fruit salad’ frangipani. It contains visual frequencies of the following aura colours: Vulnerability Pink, Wholehearted Pink, Warmth Yellow and Compassion Orange. These are all heart chakra frequencies. If you are interested in flower essences, you might want to read my blog about a flower essence bush walk I did in April 2012
