In the Wisdom of the Snapdragon

by Natasha Botkin

Snapdragon

I am enjoying a quiet, peaceful moment in my garden.  The songbirds in full melodic harmony.  I glance up from my writing, and smile at the resilience of this beautiful snapdragon.  Shhhh, please do not say to this snapdragon that it is an annual.  I do not recall how long I have had this gorgeous plant.  This elegance defies the oddity of the norm.  I completely adore the resilience of this flowering beauty.  I find in this plant a dynamic harmony, to not give up, stand out and to be one with themselves.  This is such wonderful wisdom to be shown.

As part of my gifts, I am one with nature, and flowers help me to heal as well as heal others.  So, for this beauty proudly standing up and saying, I am here for you dear is deliciousness in the most wonderful way.

From a flower therapy stand point, the healing meaning is releasing anger, healing one’s voice, communication with an enhancement of loving words.  The incredible message brings forth from the most loving manner via faeiries, angels and the divine.  After all it is all about love and communicating through love coming from a loving manner.

The snapdragon is a gentle reminder of the vitality of life.  That no matter what one says about you, feels about you; that is their opinion and belief; this does not make you, you.  Stand proud and tall and be the love that you are.

I’ve watched this particular plant weather through many a storms: literally and figuratively.  Together we have walked in manners that others have questioned; you are not like, we.  Okay, your problem, not mine.  I, will take this lovely advice from the Snapdragon: Stand proud and tall while communicating in a loving manner. What others say is their words, and their words may not herald the truth.

Thank you dear faeries, angels and the divine for allowing me to share in this beautiful wisdom.  May you too, proudly stand tall and be the beauty that you are voicing from a place of love. 

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Happy May-Day!

May Day Flowers 2015

May-day has always been a special kind of day for me.  I absolutely adore nature, and flowers are a special gift for us all to enjoy.  As a child, you could find me just before May Day in the park or at home, creating May Day Flowers.

Now how I went about it was also quite whimsical.  One never knew if they would receive a yellow dandelion or a dandelion puff to make a magical wish.

Then I would take these special smiles from the fairies, and run up to someone’s door, place it at the door, ring the doorbell and giggle while running away.  I always thought that I was so sneakily clever, only to discover from a neighbor that she loved my special gifts over the years..  As she put it, “dear you were giggling away with such delight, no one had the heart to tell you; you did bring so much joy to those who always needed it; it’s like you knew who needed it the most.”  Awww, my eyes were filled with wonderful tears, and here to think I thought that I was so spry; oh well it is the thought that counts.

May you receive a special gift of love this May Day, whether it is a real flower bouquet, paper flowers or a dear drawing from a special little loved one.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,
