The Soulflower Plant Spirit Oracle is a simple tool for daily self-reflection and self-care. It will not predict the future and it won’t fix your problems for you. What it will do is help you to connect directly to your own inner wisdom, your intuition. Like a mirror reflecting back at you the truth of what’s in your heart. And what you will see reflected is not anything that you don’t already deeply know and understand—it is just that you may have forgotten this wisdom as you deal with the “realities” of everyday physical reality.
It took me a little over two years to create the deck and it's creation represents my personal journey back to myself after a lifetime detour. All of the 44 flowers represented grow in my gardens or in the woods around my Maine home, and I consider them all wise and dear friends, confidants and traveling companions. We have so much to learn from the flowers, from the trees, from the Earth and all her elements. It is through the wisdom of Nature that I am learning to trust my own internal guidance system instead of searching for someone, or something, outside of myself to lead the way.
So when you have a daily oracle practice, instead of always looking outside of yourself for guidance and direction you instead begin to look to your own heart, to your own inner knowing, your intuition if you like. And the more you do this, the more you learn to trust yourself. And the more you learn to trust yourself, the more you will begin to experience and move through life guided by the wisdom of your heart rather than by your intellect and voices in your head.
It is my hope that the Soulflower Plant Spirit Oracle Deck will help inspire and support you on your own journey of healing and self-discovery with each card carrying a seed that will connect you with your inner wisdom, the earth and all beings living and growing here. As my understanding of the flowers, and the interconnectivity of all of nature deepens, so does my understanding of myself. Understanding myself is empowerment.
My logo is a Dandelion seed, as it is my wish to spread the seed of empowerment to others on their healing (wholing) journeys. Through my art, through my words, through my actions, I hope to inspire others. Not to do the same, but to realize the power of their own hearts to lead their way. And so, one by one as we come home to ourselves, and our direct connection with Nature, we can all help bring the Earth back in to balance with our empowered, embodied, whole selves.
Lastly, in honor and support of the beautiful Earth that supports us all, I donate $3 from every deck sale to www.treesisters.org for global reforestation projects and women's leadership programs.
