Morning Glory

Morning Glory2_lighter_450_7037You will find me growing under the late summer sun, opening in the early morning hours when the world is fresh and new. I unfurl my flowers in a glorious display. I am the color of the sky – blue, expansive, limitless. Inside my blossom is a five pointed star and, at its center, a bright golden light.

If you allow yourself to be drawn into my presence, everything stops. You become still and drop into your heart. I transport you to a place of childlike wonder where everything is new and your whole life is ahead of you. Momentarily, your filters disappear and you are one with creation. I encourage you to relax and enjoy the moment.

October ~ Mullein

Mullein_Master_450_jpg_7034I am present. I listen. I have fuzzy furry leaves that are pleasant to touch. I put a softness in your day, lighten your heart. My flowers are like little suns, coming for a day, then falling away like a flowery sunset. I am present and aware of everything going on around me. The bugs come and tickle the hairs on my leaves. The bees buzz, the beetles crawl. The sun lights up my leaves and makes them transparent.

I stand tall and take it all in. It’s all fun! It’s a great adventure to be alive. Look around you! What are you missing? What is tickling your leaves? Open your eyes, your ears, your heart, feel your skin. Feel your animal self! Your body is a gift. Find your water of life and allow it to wash over your roots. Put your feet in the dirt, sit on a rock, smell the earth, hear the birdsong. Stand tall and welcome the wind. I give you the gift of awareness. Notice your environment. Come down out of your head and inhabit your entire body. Be a new you everyday…and enjoy the ride.
