Bottlebrush (Callistemon spp.)

Bottle one
To cleanse to remove, to banish what you no longer want in your life and to work towards balance, Bottlebrush (Callistemon spp.) will help you through fresh or
dried flowers and botanicals, essences and through images. I found this one yesterday in Sydney, Croydon on my walk, along a train line and visualised the train taking away with it what is no longer wanted in my life. 🌸

🌼 Flowers to Increase your Intuition & Psychic Abilitities

So many of you are loving my articles on 'Flowers for Protection' ,  'Flowers for Love' and  'The Language of Black Flowers'  that I thought I would continue with this series and today share with you Flowers that can help invite energies into your life and spaces that will bring clarity and a boost to your intuition and psychic skills. 

1 Cheralyn author

Water Lily (Nymphaea spp.) 
Probably one of the most powerful Flowers that provide pathways to all forms of enlightenment and higher learning. This Flower will connect what is here, below and above and so can help strengthen your intuition and psychic abilities in all realms. Will surround all those working within its space with protection and also bring deep unity to those working together in groups. Can be burnt as an incense, used in mists as a flower essence and other botanicals. A bowl of water with a Water Lily floating upon it is a wonderful and powerful divination scurrying tool and energy supporter.

Violet (Viola odorata)
This Flower favourite to many is a little intuition powerhouse and it will shield you and your work from interference. I've often added a few dried petals to my locket for just this reason. If you are undertaking training, lessons or self-study in psychic development, violet is an excellent supporter for you in all its forms.

Queen of the Night (Selenicereus grandiflorus)
This Flower of the night will naturally help those of you working with dream interpretation, dream magick and wanting to improve your intuitive dreams. It will help with general intuition development as well. An image of Queen of the Night/misting with its essence, is the perfect bedroom addition for those working in this realm.

Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia candida)
A deepening of intuition and can help explore the shadow side of situations if desired. This flower will bring very powerful psychic growth and regeneration of powers thought lost. You can also connect with Angel's Trumpet to remove negative energies and entities.

Speedwell (Veronica officinalis)
The gift that lovely Speedwell will bestow is that of  providing space for you to thrive and grow strong in your intuition. It can also help heal past issues you may of faced or be facing in this field and bring greater clarity when required. I love the way Speedwell can settle down situations that are very volatile or complicated.

Tree Spider Orchid (Dendrobium tetragonum)
If you are having doubts in your abilities, then Tree Spider Orchid is the Flower you need to spend time with. This delightful blossom with strengthen resolve and help you believe in yourself. While is a good intuition builder, this orchid will also assist when secrets are being explored.

Centaury (Centaurium erythraea)
To strengthen intuition and psychic powers, connect with wonderful Centaury. This Flower will also bring good luck, offer general protection and is a toxic energy banisher (handy!) as well as an evil banisher.

Himalayan Blue Poppy(Meconopsis grandis)
This elusive Flower will assist you in uncovering and developing your personal psychic skills. As it is so hard to grow outside of its natural environment, dried botanicals and flower essences along with images are going to be most helpful. Himalayan Blue Poppy will awaken any dormant abilities, shine a bright light on possibilities for you and provide intuitive clarity. Another Flower that assists those involved with dream work.

Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)
A few dried Red Clover Flowers carried upon your person will provide psychic protection and can be very handy when going into crowded places that you know has a lot of unbalanced energy pinging about. This Flower will increase psychic awareness, help clear negativity and also boost self-awareness which may in turn help with the development of your intuition.

Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia spp.)
This earthy Flower will assist you to stay grounded while exploring your intuitive skills while providing pathways to deeper insights. What I particularly like about this flower and plant is that it will provide illumination for personal issues, goals and questions.

Flower of the Day ~ 🌼 Cosmos (Cosmos spp.)

Cosmos will support better communication, inspire peace and tranquillity
and are a lovely way to express your commitment to loving someone.
Cosmos flora webcard 2

MAGICKAL BOTANICAL
from ‘The Book of Flower Spells’
Cosmos Communication Improvement Spell
Cosmos Flowers provide opportunities for communication and coherency. They also offer peace and tranquillity, which is obviously beneficial when communication is difficult due to raised emotions. This spell is very helpful at times when you feel you are not being clearly heard by another person/s or even an institution or company. While you cannot energetically change their opinion, you can raise energy to ensure you are better understood so that a fair outcome is more likely.

Best Timings
Full Moon, Wednesday, Dusk
Find and Gather
a small bunch of Cosmos (Cosmos spp.)
two bells
a blue cloth
pen and paper
a clear vase
a beautiful bottle
rain/distilled water
glycerine

The Spell
Lay your cloth out neatly and create a bridge-like pattern with your flowers. This should look roughly like an arch. At either end of the arch, place a bell.
Take out your pen and paper and write whatever it is that you need understood. Be as clear as possible. It is okay to rewrite this a few times until you are happy with it.
Ring the first bell and then say:
Bell, take my words,
Loud, clear and true.
Then read what you have written.
Ring the second bell and say:
So may they be heard
Loud, clear and true.
Place the flowers in a clear vase (this will ensure clarity of your words) with fresh water and place it on top of your message. When the flowers are spent, put them with your folded message into a beautiful bottle with 4/5 rain/distilled water and 1/5 glycerine. Seal the bottle. Whenever you wish your message to be heard, ring a bell and shake your bottle.


BOTANICAL HISTORY
Native to South America, it has been a popular garden flower over the years and a horse feed. The name cosmos was bestowed upon it by Spanish mission priests in Mexico due to the evenly placed petals and come to us from the Greek ‘Kosmos’ which means ‘order of the world.’

GARDENING NOTES
A self-seeding annual, they do tend to become a weed and I have a few blow-ins myself in my garden. If you do/can plant, then sow direct in place and chose a sunny spot with free-draining soil for the best flowering. Cosmos are very hardy and require almost no additional care and tolerate most frost-free conditions. They will blossom between summer and autumn.
Cosmos 3

FLORISTRY TIPS
A really lovely country-style flower that can be used in casual bouquets and rearrangements. Vase life is up to 10 days and are best purchased when the petals are just beginning to open. They will continue to unfurl completely. Be very mindful to remove foliage below waterline to avoid speeding the life of the arrangement.

THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS ORACLE
Now is the time to say things that you need/want to say to another. Harmony and balance are being offered now but you need to be a part of the equation, it isn’t going to happen on its own. Speak up and step up!

Flower of the Day ~ 🌺 Heliconia (Heliconia spp.)

aka Crab Claw, Lobster Claw, Parrot Flower ~
Very good at helping you find ways to make changes in your life and in illuminating new ideas.

Heliconia 1

THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS ORACLE
Inspirations are coming, (thick and fast!) and you may need to decide which you will follow. The answer to a question or situation is close at hand and whatever it may be, will perhaps not be able to be changed.

BOTANICAL HISTORY
A tropical plant, related to the banana and ginger and are native to South and Central America. There are well over 500 varieties and what most of us assume are the flowers of these plants are actually brightly coloured bracts (modified leaves). The flowers are often very tiny and held within these bracts. The name Heliconia comes to use from the word ‘helix’ which means spiral and relates to the shapes the bracts and flowers produce.

Heliconia 2

GARDENING NOTES
These are a tropical plant and so do well in full sun for best flowering, but will tolerate semi shade. Mulch, feed and water well and provide a moist well-draining soil. They grow from a rhizome with most flowering from summer to autumn and into winter. Summer is the best time to plant and you will need to be in an area that is frost free and rather warm.

FLORISTRY TIPS
Vase life is about 10 days and colours include red, orange, yellows, pink, maroon, green. Recut stems before placing in water and display away from full sun and draughts and avoid cold. They do like an occasional misting. They will not open further once cut from the plant.

Heliconia 3

MAGICKAL BOTANICAL
Heliconia will work very well in spells that are seeking solutions and inspiration. They are particularly good in spells involving tracing the image of the flower (bracts) and repeating a chant with each spiralling section. If you are looking to change something, include the plant or its image in your magick work.

Flower of the Day ~ 🌸 Nerine (Nerine spp.)

This delightful flower enables us the freedom to be ourselves. It is very good to have around for those who find it hard to connect with and understand the strengths found in being vulnerable.

Nerine 4 web

THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS ORACLE
If you feel drawn towards Nerine then you are being told you are enough, you are ok and what you do is of value. Trust that you are! Challenges are usually emotional in nature and you should be careful of emotional extremes.

Nerine web 1

BOTANICAL HISTORY
Native to South Africa and Europe, common names include Guernsey Lily and Jersey Lily and although they do also grow from a bulb, they are technically not lilies. The flower was named after the Nereids, the sea nymphs in Greek mythology who were known to assist sailors in storms. Nerine were previously known as Imhofia until a shipload of the bulbs that sailed for the Netherlands shipwrecked near Guernsey and the name was changed in 1820.

Nerine 2

GARDENING NOTES
They bloom - late autumn (fall), winter and early spring and colours include white, pink, crimson, red, red/orange. Preferring a very free draining sandy soil, plant in full sun unless you are in a very hot climate then choose semi shade through the day. Bulbs will need to be lifted where the ground hardens. You can divide once established for a few years if desired.

Nerine

FLORISTRY NOTES
Purchase when one spike is open. Vase life - up to 14 days. Never mist but change water every second day and remove dead flowers immediately to prevent ethylene contamination.
