There is a rose bush at the entrance to the beach. I love to pick one rose bud and bring it home to blossom.
I love the feel of hand-picked flowers – a gift from Mother Nature – in my living space and as the rose bud blossoms it reflects to me the cycle of a heart whisper.
When the cycle is finished, I take the rose petals, thank them for blessing my home, and sprinkle them over our door mat.
My children say it looks like someone got married (because, in general, people seem to save magical touches for special occasions such as marriage).
I love the feel of returning home to the feel of magic.
Magic is as simple as that – small touches intentionally placed throughout your day, that delight you and remind you of infinite possibility, here, now, as you are.
A few notes:
1. One of my most precious loves used to bring me hand-picked flowers each time he arrived at my home. I loved that. Instead of continuing with the practice on my own, or manifesting it in another way, I left that *magical touch* in the experience of Him, which was a few years ago; so when he was no longer present, neither were the flowers. (You see, I did that to myself, Universe didn’t do that to me…we can apply that lesson to any area of delight and abundance…sometimes we close the door, but we blame external for our lack).
A few months ago, a friend brought a bouquet of hand-picked flowers upon arriving at my home. I remembered how much I loved hand-picked flowers in my space. I now delight in picking my own!
2. The cycle of the rose bud reminds me of presence to unfolding within natural growth. It begins as a bud, when it is well-cared for it takes a few days to blossom, the blossom is bold and beautiful, and then it wilts. Kind of like a heart whisper. There is much freedom in learning to celebrate natural cycles.
3. When the rose bud wilts, I thank it for the joy it brought. (I don’t: get angry at Universe for taking beauty away, or try to prolong the life cycle or preserve the blossom…I simply feel and share gratitude for the beauty I experienced when it was present).
What *magical* touch do you currently, or would you like to, add to your day? (when you share, you inspire).
Much peace and abundant love,
