I used to believe that all emotions on our polarity planet were rooted in either fear or love. My truth now is all there is is LOVE and that FEAR is an illusion created by our minds to keep us safe from feeling. Fear distorts the truth of who we are and what the world is, and obscures what Nature is always reflecting to me…which is LOVE.
Forget-Me-Not (AWARENESS) reminds us that life is far more than what we can perceive with our physical senses alone.

Nettle breaks down your ego. You can’t get too pushy with Nettle or she will sting! She humbles you. You have to move mindfully, with focused intention, and an open heart. And in your loving and tender and honest openness, she deeply nourishes and fortifies you—transforming you from the inside out.

Like the sun I stand in my power. I speak my truth. I connect with and stay in my body even when it hurts. I feel everything and I unconditionally accept and have compassion for it all. We are the children of Earth. Made of the Earth and illuminated by the Divine light of the Universe.
The more I fight and struggle and suffer, the more I create all that I am not. And the more I sink into the watery depths of despair, which I have done over and over as I have unpacked my personal suffering, the more I pull others down with me. Rose tells me over and over that what is in my highest good is indeed in the highest good for all.
On our metaphorical dance floor that is life, we are faced with many choices every moment about what steps to take next. Lady’s Slipper asks if our steps come from within, guided by our connection with our higher selves, or if are they choreographed by others?
Let us create a new world, a new system that reflects our Divine diversity, like all the beautiful flowers in my garden, like the wisdom of Nature, is always showing us.
