Blazing star

Mentzelia open_400_8469 copy (1)Come…walk with me. The day is ending, the shadows are lengthening, the sun’s rays are softer. The busiest part of your day is over. You don’t need to think so hard with your brain. It’s time to listen with your heart.

The path ahead is unclear. It’s okay if you’re a little confused. You can’t rely on the past for direction…and the future? It’s yours to create. You are a child in this new reality. You will learn by doing. Play, experiment, take risks.

My flowers are open in the in between times, after the bright light of day and before the dark of night. I’m here to teach you how to navigate the lights and shadows of your own existence on this planet.

I will support you. If you get stuck, I can help you get unstuck. I will help you through your transition. Look to your heart, your intuition. That’s where you’ll find your light. Your light, along with the light of others, is the blazing star that will guide you.

Blue Grama Grass

Seedheads on stock_450_Master_8606 copyWe kiss the Earth and hold it dear. Our roots protect the soil and we raise our seed banners up toward the sun. When the wind comes, our seeds fly into the air and populate the bare earth to start new communities of green life upon the land.

You, too, can bring new life to the planet. We can help you anchor to your heart and build a life you’ve never imagined. I invite you to share in my essence so you can feel at one with the Earth and find solace away from the busyness of your mind. Pachamama invites you to join in her evolution. Leave fear behind and embrace wholeness. When you emerge back into the world, you will be filled with light and inspiration. Seek out the other members of your community and spread the seeds of a new garden. You can create new forms that are in perfect harmony with all the beings sharing this planet with you.

Skunk Cabbage

I don’t stand alone. We grow in large clumps, sometimes so tall and thick, we look like a forest. Our stems are thick and strong, our leaves long and broad, emerging in a graceful curtain of green. Small white flowers grow in clusters at the top. We are part of an unfailing ecosystem, fed by the rain from above and the rich moist soil below.

Our gift to you is the physical strength and stamina to get you through these challenging times. We support you on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Remember that you don’t stand alone. You are connected to the web of life that surrounds the planet. Know that there are resources beyond your comprehension available to you at all times. Just ask.


White HollyhockWe came from the stars, like so many of you. We adapted quickly and produced many blossoms, each of which has a distinct five pointed star in the center, a symbol of balance and harmony.

We grow in gardens as well as places where nothing else thrives, at the edges where the soil is hard and dry, through cracks in the asphalt, from beneath gravel, next to paths where no one gardens. We find the sustenance we need. Our flowers are plenty.

We have fun playing with color. It’s one of the benefits of living on this beautiful planet. Though we must admit, you humans have much more opportunity to display color. As you grow from infancy to adulthood, you develop an amazing uniqueness in your outward appearance, your emotional makeup, your lifestyle, and your understanding of the world. This is the current story you are building, and everyone is unique. We want to help you accept and celebrate your diversity.

We can help you adapt to unfamiliar circumstances, to people and places you have not previously encountered, in times that require skills you haven’t needed before. Don’t resist the environment you find yourself in. You can find what sustains you and relish it.

You’ve noticed we like to grow next to people’s homes. We are aware that you humans are often in pain, and some of it is so old. You don’t need to keep carrying it around. You don’t even need to know the story surrounding it. It’s an energy we can help you transform.

Bring beauty to the piece of planet Earth where you live. Look for the goodness and beauty around you and be a light. Show off your colors so others take notice. Don’t let old pain hold you back. Listen to the wisdom of other forms – the trees, the wind, the birds, animals, stones, your own body. They all have much to share with you.
