Healing Rose

image

Tremulous tears on eye lashes
fall and slide down cheeks
as the anxiety and pain
of the week
abate and heal.
~~~~~~~~~~~

Having an exceptionally difficult week, as hard ball after hard ball came whipping my way, my nerves screamed, my mind ready to burst, I desperately clung to keep sanity in place.Β  All around me chaos was seen as the dark rose its truly ugly head.Β  When one walks with Light and Truth, the more that one walks on the Path, the stronger that one becomes, and in so doing, the dark is alerted and the mighty stung is felt.Β  This world we live in does not easily accept Truth, for its very foundation is deception and greed.

I tell you True, my camera saved my sanity yesterday.Β  As I took the photograph of this Rose, I began to weep, and in putting my forehead on the ground as I knelt, the sobs wracked my body as I let go the pain from this week.Β  This Rose’s Beauty took such a deep hold of me, She shook my very Soul.

I pray that those of you who are going through troubling times, not knowing how to hang on anymore, please allow this precious Rose to heal you.Β  Allow the tears to come, for they in of themselves are healing.Β  Let this Princess Rose reach those hurting places.Β  Feel Her Love for you.

    1. Dearest Takami, tears pool in my eyes as I write this to you. If your week was anything like mine, I would classify it straight from hell. My Heart so goes out to you, and I pray for the both of us, that these brutal situations stop, and Peace, and only Peace, is seen. BIG (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

    1. Dearest One, you of anyone would know and understand just how rocky the “energy” has been lately. I have been buffeted one way from another way and again hit while I am still spinning. Sending Many Blessings to you, my Brother of Light. Hang on tight and pray that Life settles down. (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

  2. Every time I see a rose, I think of my mother, whose name, of course, was Rosalie. Your photo is exceptionally beautiful and brought a little sunshine into my life this morning. I don’t know what’s going on in your life at the moment, but I hope things have gotten a little better for you.

    1. My friend, somehow I overlooked your comment yesterday and for this I do apologize. Your words brought smiles to my face, because my Rose brought memories to you of your Mom. Rosalie … what an absolute gorgeous name! This Rose’s name is Princess Diana and is in memory of one of my cats, Princess. This is probably why I had my meltdown as I was capturing one of the Blooms, for Her Beauty struck me so deeply that it took my breath away. In that moment, all of what had transpired last week came to the surface and I wept. May your weekend be wonderful! I had planned on going to parks but I see it is still overcast, looking like rain. Perhaps I will still go. Who knows? I just follow my Heart. (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

  3. Well, not so much emotional toil but commuting kids back and forth from camp, having my son finish his last week of homeschooling an jury duty have certainly taken it’s toll. I’m glad this week is over!! Well, Amy, they do say misery loves company so not sure if that was any consolation, ha, ha!! Hope things are looking up for you. That rose, by the way, looks like it’s doing anything but healing, more like flourishing and showing the world all it’s beauty. May it be an inspiration to you as I’m sure your photography often is.

    1. Marissa, I do not know how I overlooked your comment yesterday. I do apologize! As for having a stressful week, I am glad it is now over and hopefully we both can relax some over the weekend. This Rose is very special to me, being planted in the memory of one of my cats whose name was Princess. As I looked upon her Beauty, I broke, or rather the damn broke, and all the circumstances that rocked my world came flooding in with tears and sobs. I plan on using my camera and tripod this weekend in parks, but it is overcast and looks like rain again. We have been so dry here, and now it has done nothing but rain for the last week or so. I’ve been running out in between showers to get flower pictures, this Rose being one. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get some relaxation in!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

      1. How lovely that this rose has a special meaning to you and I can think of nothing better than one life dedicated to another. It must be painful for you but it’s wonderful that you keep a reminder of Princess. As for myself, just running kids around and jury duty…seems trite in comparison!!

      2. Marissa, I’m learning to let go. I have so many to care for that if I clung to those that are no longer here, I would be a basket case. Princess gave me quite the Gift. She got me to begin doing my research regarding vaccines. Why? She died from a vaccine. Today, due to what I have learned, I do not vaccinate my cats. Long story there ….. Love, Amy ❀

    1. When all HOPE fails, that is when we all are in trouble. I really don’t know what to hang on anymore, except to my camera. All means of me staying Centered in the course of a storm, no longer seem to make a difference. My ONE Source of Love found through Mother, heals me in so many ways.

    1. I’m getting there, Erika. Part of the difficulty is my husband. I am encouraging him to change his way of managing Life so that he can stay in a Calm place. It just poured this past week, yet …. MANY Blessings are now coming out of it. As for those who really hurt me DELIBERATELY, what you do unto others, that is what shall be done onto you. What IS is. And so I move forward! Later this afternoon I am taking my tripod and camera back to a park I know to capture water at slow shutter speeds. Keeping my fingers crossed the light will be right.

      1. I see, Amy! You know, there is a wonderful quote of Wayne Dyer: “How other people treat me, is their path – how I react, is mine!” We cannot control others but how we think and act. It also is not up to us to control others. Like us they are always at the right place. We don’t know why they do what they do. But one thing is for sure. Whatever someone does is a radiation of what is going on inside of that person… it is not about you.

      2. Oh, I know this, Erika, to a T. A cold empty Heart is what was reflected to me, yet the barbs spoken to me were so unexpected and such a shock, I just about keeled over. And that is no exaggeration. My character was debased so badly, I did not even recognize the person that was being described as me. Truth is not embraced easily in this world, my friend, especially when a wrong is pointed out, which I pointed out. That was not taken well.
        Thank you for saying this was not about me. Again, I really know this, yet my sensitive soul was shocked. >3

      2. Kathy, keep me in your prayers because I am really trying to encourage hubby to walk away from the “work” and take breaks. He gets in the modes that he is obsessed literally with all that must be done around here, and tunnel vision is a result. I am really going to try to get him to come with me to a park this weekend. He is in “soldier mode” right now, which means march march march and do not stop. I’m so happy for you that you and hubby got some R&R in. We all need it!!! Have a great weekend! (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

    1. Karen, the really odd thing is that when I post work like this, so many step forward and say they too have been having a tough patch. It is as though the Universe is allowing things to unfold in my Life which my Heart then urges me to write about, because it is all about reaching out to others who are hurting. I pray that Life lets up for you and for me, and we can both get back to Balance and Calm. The “energy” of late has been very rocky, so if you are a “sensitive” like me, you will not only feel it, but you will experience the dark raising its ugly head. At least that is how it usually happens with me. Hang in there …. A Rainbow is about to shine! πŸ™‚ Love, Amy ❀

  5. Dear Amy, I am sorry that your tears spilled over this week.. Yes you are right the dark often comes to try to extinguish our light.. But the brighter we are the more truth we hold, and Truth and Light shall always win over deceit and greed..

    I can feel the light and love poured forth from this rose Amy.. and I am sure Mother Earth soaked up your tears to transmute them into her joy of giving such delights for you to share..

    1. Dearest Sue, the heaviness is already lifting and now I am able to pray for those who deliberately hurt me and send them LOVE. Mother did transmute my pain so that I am once again able to stand stable and do my work. This entire week was an onslaught of dark after dark being seen and the shock was tremendous to my mind, body and spirit. I plan on spening much time with my camera this weekend just to get lost in the beauty of Mother. That is my True place in this world. Bless you for your Love and healing thoughts. (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

      2. An ayurvedic doctor ….. NICE!!!! I wish we had more of you here in the states because medicine as it is today is in big trouble. I believe in alternative medicine for both myself and husband, and our cats. We focus on Homeopathy and herbs with some truly exceptional results. I am going to write your name down, Sneha, for it is very unusual for me. I really try to remember everyone’s name who comes to Petals. I am thrilled you “feel” my energy and are able to connect with me. This is how I function as well. I sense energy. Please enjoy Petals as much as you can. It is my honor that you do so. Thank you for telling me about yourself. Bless you! I live in New York State near Buffalo on the eastern portion of the United States.

  7. Sorry to hear you’ve had a hard time, Amy. Been absent myself for a similar reason – a fortnight ago we lost our lovely little dog, Ziggy. He was getting treatment, vet thought he’d be okay and he just laid down, put his head on Bryan’s feet and passed away, quietly and peacefully. Still distraught, I miss the bright, bubbly, loving, kind little larrikin, so quiet without him, the other three dogs have been much quieter too. Hugs to you, Darl xxxx

    1. I am so sorry to hear about your great loss, Darl. Be glad that your Ziggy went peacefully and you did not have to make the horrendous decision of euthanasia. My hard times have passed, and a Great Peace has descended which I fully embrace. I also see somehow my follow on your blog disappeared, so I rechecked the follow today. That WP ghost is up to mischief again.
      I hope your Heart heals quickly and that in time, you can remember your Ziggy with smiles and fond memories. I understand when one of our family leaves, how devastating it is. Bless you!!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❀
