Several months ago I bought a gardenia plant filled with buds and looked forward to it blooming. Gardenias are one of my all time favorite flowers. But the buds remained closed tight…for weeks and weeks.
Knowing how sensitive plants are to energy…especially the energy of thoughts, each time I watered it I thought “It’s okay. I know you’ll bloom in your own time and when you do I will enjoy all your beautiful, aromatic flowers!” I wasn’t sure why this plant wasn’t putting forth it’s bounty but I knew to be kind and gentle with it.
This morning there was a flower….fully opened and emitting her intoxicating scent. By afternoon, several more buds had begun to open. Even plants know when you are being loving and kind. The energy of acceptance is one of the most potent on earth.
