In our Academy course ,The Journey of the Enchanted Heart , we share about the healing properties of different flowers and plants. Pansy is a powerful flower to open the heart and heal the body.
I take my wooden bowl down to the garden and ask the Pansy plants if I may have a few choice flowers for my daily salad. They always graciously say yes. The Flower Fairy offers her greeting. I find the whole experience Simply Enchanting, and the salad delicious !- Rhianne
“Poetry is a mystic, sensuous mathematics of fire, smoke-stacks, waffles, pansies, people, and purple sunsets.” Carl Sandburg
If you strive to be pure of heart and mind and are ready to face the world and share your many gifts, beauty, and wisdom in a deeply satisfying way that contributes a legacy of love, then you and I are kindred spirits. Pansy can assist us to accomplish this with grace.
What if we had an ally who could help us to achieve our intention to find this purity and courage with a simply enchanted elegance that was easy and graceful? What if we could let go of working so HARD to be clear of negative thoughts and have our heart chakras open wide, activating deep healing in our immune systems and clearing disorders we have carried for decades, or eons? I have asked myself these questions many times, and now, the magical world of enchantment, the Deva's and inner guides, are providing answers that have been right in front of us all along.
According to the ancients, and many well known and reputable healers, we can call upon the Pansy to be a support for us in enhancing and healing our hearts and as a result, our lives. Life Herself, provides so many wonderful remedies for our human “conditions”. Yet, in our current modern age, we often overlook or underestimate the amazing gifts that the pretty posies growing lushly in our home gardens have to offer. But now, the wise Mother of Life within each of us, is calling us back to the Simply Enchanted world of heart wisdom, and a big part of that world, is Nature. And a wondrous part of Nature, is the flowers and plants.
Healing benefits and therapeutic uses of Pansy Flower
Here is some additional information about Pansy Flowers. They are so easy to grow, so lovely, and have so many uses. I get organic flowers or if that is not available, buy from a reputable nursery and allow the plants to blossom a few times, and then I use the flowers.

What is your recipe for a life you love, that loves you back?
When you make a recipe, you gather your ingredients. When you create a work of art, you gather your materials. If you are wishing to make a delicious meal or a beautiful picture, you gather the highest quality elements you can muster. Once you have those elements, you combine them with care and consideration. Just the right amount of this and that, assures your finished "product" will be delightful and of course, enchanting. One rotten apple or tarnished bead can ruin your cobbler or beautiful necklace! What is the recipe for your life? What are the elements that you currently or want to include to make each day beautiful, healthy, fulfilling and Enchanted?
What are you ready to let go of and clear from your life that you find disenchanting ?
" But not everything in my life is of the highest possible quality. Things do spoil and tarnish. I can't create perfection, in fact, I can drive myself crazy trying to make everything "right". I truly wish to know how to take the next steps, I know that I am very close to finding the keys to my true self, to the secrets of being myself. What do I do? What comes next?" ( I hear your heart ask, as mine does , to ourWise Woman within )
"The First thing I want you to do my dearest, is to RELAX, says the Wise Woman within. Take some deep breaths and focus on your heart."
I see Life and how we live our lives as two different things. I experience Life as the source of creation, as the energy of manifestation and all that we see and experience and are. Our lives, are what we do with our relationship with Life. I have learned that when I love Life, Life loves me back. When I get frustrated with how I live my life, but blame it on Life herself, ( you know, we say Life sucks, Life is not fair, etc. etc, but I feel it is not LIFE that sucks, but how we are living and experiencing life that can suck)well, then my life does not go nearly as well.
So I have and continue to learn how to live with Life in a more collaborative and co-creative way, and fashion an experience as Rhianne to be custom made to fit me and how I have been created as the soul, woman and person I am. This has been and continues to be a journey that so far as lasted over 60 years! I know that you are a magical woman (or man) who is ready to take a leap and enjoy and respect and honor your experience of Life as never before. I am pleased to offer this guidance from my heart, to you, as my gift. When I asked what element to begin with, the word that came up so strongly was RELAX. So I encourage you, relax, stop all of your activities for the moment, and be fully present. To be able to truly listen to Life speaking through our hearts, we must slow down, relax, and open.
My Darling One
Take a very deep breath. I invite you to relax, let go and release all of the energies, thoughts, ideas, beliefs and clutter that clouds your body, mind and spirit, and rest your heart? That would be so very lovely. Here, let me help you get more comfortable. Allow me to make you a delicious cup of relaxing tea. I will put in herbs from my garden, Lemon Balm, Rosemary and Rose petals, for a soothing, uplifting brew. You might be weary, or you might be wonderful. You might be sorrowful, or you might be elated. Whatever your current state of being is, we will open to more harmony, balance and beauty together. I have created a short relaxing guided journey for you as a gift. Please take five minutes to yourself in a quiet, comfortable place. If you can make yourself a cup of tea in a favorite cup, do so. Take some time when the guided journey is over to contemplate these questions. Perhaps write them in your journal. Next week I will share part 2 of this series with you. Until then, may you experience many magical miraculous changes that will help you to flourish in every area of your life! I hope you enjoy our time together as we access our inner Feminine Enchanted Heart Wisdom.
With deep love, honor and support,
