Healing Garden – A visit to The Carnival of Flowers
Healing Garden – Last Thursday Sue and I took some time out to smell the roses, so to speak. In this case literally! We stopped what we were doing and had planned for the day to journey up to Toowoomba for The Carnival of Flowers where we spent a most enjoyable day in the parks and gardens.
This was also the hottest recorded September spring day for Queensland, so it was a great day to be in Toowoomba’s elevated atmosphere. Tribute must be paid to the gardeners as their work was very well presented considering the wilting heat. Colour and fragrance were abundant as all about you could see the care and attention that had gone into creating a magnificent show.
Walking around the parks and gardens we could feel ourselves becoming more serene and centred as nature did her revitalizing and nurturing work. In fact spending time in gardens is one of the best healing and re-energizing exercises we can do for ourselves and it’s free!
I am sure my crystals made the most of the day as well. When I removed them from my pockets and took of my ‘medicine pouch’ at the end of the day, they felt enlivened and brighter, as though they too had cleansed and refreshed their energy from the abundance available in the gardens.
Nature and mans work come together in gardens to offer a kaleidoscope of beauty, colour, smell and touch that can invigorate and lift our senses providing a free healing equal to the best any professional healer may have to offer for a fee.
Never put off taking pleasure in ‘life rewards’ like visits to parks and gardens. I must admit that before setting off on our day’s escapade, I had a pang of guilt as I thought about our business responsibilities and the tasks that needed to be done, but I am so glad I chose to ignore it.
Now its a couple of days later and nothing seems to be amiss, and as a bonus, while I was sitting in the rose garden a simple and easy to use solution to problem that had been perplexing me popped into my head. This has since been employed to great satisfaction.Ron and Sue
