What is your Spiritual Focus Plant or Flower in your Garden? MBS Sydney, Urban Garden Magic with Cheralyn

Do you always seem to have one plant that flowers a little longer or first before others?
For the past few years, mine has been Gardenia and I know why.

She is a Spiritual focus in my little Urban Garden and that focus has provided a very deep connection with Nature which let's the conversation in the Language of Flowers flow between us.

Nature ATC Collective

I am the organiser of an Artist Trading Card Swap Group called 'Nature ATC Collective'.

I remember falling in love with these years ago at an Art Retreat watching my American friends busily swapped the tiny colourful miniature works of art. Over the years I've been a part of ones and enjoyed carrying them with me to events and swapping but I haven't done so for a while and after listening to many of my Flower Reading and loving Facebook friends lament their lack of creative outlet or worry about their skills I thought this would be a great way to encourage art bravery and inspire creative journeys. 

I adore being part of this group of inspiring people. All walks of life, all levels of creativity and all willing to share their love of Nature, creative expression and to help each other realise a dream to do so. Each month we swap ATCs (miniature artworks) and this was the collection from our September theme..... each is just 3.5 x 2.5 inches in size in line with the international standard of ATCs. We all end up with a miniature collection of art too!

Bugs

If you would like to a part of the group, hop on over to the Facebook Group page and ask to join. You are welcome to just be a part of this group and enjoy the interaction, learn about ATCs for a while and what we do. There is no obligation to join a swap each month but we really hope you do! 
When you are ready to join one, watch for the notice and instructions in the group.

Balmain Library Visit 6:30pm TONIGHT

What is Traditional Flower Reading? 

We continually ignore what is already here or worse, manipulate it to suit us. 
Flowers are not the mouth piece of a belief system. They are pure, honest, Nature energy which works alongside us. 

Tonight I will be sharing in this hour long talk and discussion what I have worked for over 30 years uncovering and preserving, Traditional Flower Reading. 

You can Read Flowers for yourself and once you begin, the entire world will become more meaningful, the pathways to balance, healing and understanding become clearer and easier to connect with. 
Love to share your company tonight.

I adore meeting people and hearing their Flower connections.

REALLY looking forward to this as it's my home. I began flower reading as a child, not in some majestic garden estate but with the daisies and dandelions of the back lane ways, the jump up Johnny's along the waterways of the place I will always call home.

Thank you so ver

I will be sharing the Language of Nature and discussing how you can connect, understand and then grow from this knowledge. From traditional flower reading to modern science's affirmation of what we all inherently know and live, come with me and let's see what Nature is saying to you! 
As I do at all my get togethers, I will also be reading your flowers. 

It is a free event but you will need to book by visiting the Library Event Booking page here:

LOVE to see you there xx

Creative Meditation Tutorial

 

Mosmanbaytuesday"Mosman Bay Early Monday"
oil on canvas
Cheralyn Darcey 2005

After a lifetime of creating Art, I find the process itself to be a meditative activity. 
Easily I find myself in the state of mind which feels very much like deep meditation 
as I create. I do realize that this takes time, practice and development. 

It is also the Gateway to creating Art and Crafts which are more closely aligned
with your Spiritual self. To help you find that space, I have developed a little 
meditation exercise which ANYONE can do. It also helps unlock creative blocks
(yes even you "I'm not at all Creative" types!) 

Here is my little creativity visualization and meditation exercise for you
to try that will help you find your creative space . 
This Meditation is in two parts. 

The first, which you can use on it's own as a relaxation meditation,
features a walk through the forest. 

Part two is an 'awake' meditation.
Make sure you do part one first to lower yourself into the frame of mind
and calm centered focus to enable you to benefit deeply from part two.

You will need:
A comfy quiet place to sit or lie.
A big blank sheet of paper A3 or bigger!
One of those cardboard sheets from the newsagent cut in half is a great size.
A collection of coloured pencils, markers or crayons 
(I LOVE crayons for this as the texture and blending works wonderfully!
