Following Flora

Gaia Girl (seen here) settles into the lowlands of that grand State of Vermont and partakes in a little ritual of "Pass the what?"
Pine resin incense. Known as a purifier of homes. Used to heal, balance and clear energies: does it work? What do you smell? How do you feel? What do you think?
It is amazing when you stop and think about it. We are surrounded by more plants than we are people (well, out here anyway) and they (like us) all have a story to tell; something to say, something to teach us. And Gaia Girl is being taught to hear and to listen. And she is the perfect student. I've never known anyone as eager and as ready and as able as Gaia Girl is for this and at this moment. And  that I am witness to it is exhilarating.
And what is even more interesting is the fact that her teacher is good. Very good. A true purveyor of plants and herbs, providing a hands on approach in every sense of the word. She is a natural. This is not a class and she is not a teacher - It is transmission looking for a suitable vessel. And this is very exciting for me.
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
She is - it has.

I like that picture on the left. I struck me that it had the composition of a Vermeer.

Plants have invisible energy, I'm starting to realize. On occasion nowadays I talk to my plants and I'm even using them to practice seeing auras. I was really excited when I finally saw a wave of energy rising up from my schefflera plant!

I wouldn't let anyone see me talking to my plants, but after reading some articles about how talking to them might help them grow I really started to believe that there are things we just can't see with the eyes. I still want to watch "The Secret Life of Plants", too.

P.S. That mushroom reminds me of a whale's tail coming up out of the water.
