About

Hi. And welcome to Petal’s Unfolding. This is a Place where I will be sharing with you my Heart’s Whisperings, poetry (mine and others), inspirations (mine and others), and many beautiful photographs of flowers, cats, and Nature … and more.

My Life has had many Learning Lessons from which I have gained a certain way about me that “knows things” or “senses things” or “feels things”. I no longer hide those traits from the world and it is with Great Pleasure that I share with you those very traits, here at my Blog. You will find these “traits” in my words, my sayings, and also my poetry. My hope is that they inspire you and make your life a better place!

Through several illnesses, one that left me not walking for 2 years, another in which I died and returned, and yet a third being totally unable to function due to the loss of my Thryoid…..my Life has twisted and turned on Paths that I just did not foresee coming. As a result, I have been pulled away from the world of 3D and immersed into a world of first pain and suffering, then into a World of Magic. In discovering the Inner Garden within, I managed to recreate my Life from ashes into a Glowing Garden of Delight.

No, my Life is not perfect, whose Life is? Yes, I am still learning and will do so until my last breath. The growth in myself has been an absolute Miracle, for I came from the thinking that I am a nobody, to the thinking of today in which I Love myself, respect myself, returning to the Inner Child within. In doing so, I am attaining my Dreams, one by one, this Blog being one of those Dreams. To be perfectly honest with you, I didn’t see this happening. It just did. I guess the “timing” was right, for when something “just happens”, the preparation for that event, are finished. And the Glorious Event unfolds, effortlessly and with Great JOY.

I elected in this lifetime to be placed where there was no Love just to find my way back to the place of Love, to that of my Inner Garden. I had to learn how to find ME again under all the programming and lies that had been stuffed in me, and when I did, I realized, I came into this incarnation, connected to Source, and knowing I AM Love. I rejoiced when I discovered my Inner Garden again, finding my Inner Child among the flowers, and from there, living Life for the first time in my Life. Does that make sense to you? It does me!

In asking myself what is the point of my Life if I do not reach out to share what I have learned and am still learning, those things I do know to be Truth, I with the help of a friend, took the leap of Faith deciding to start my own Blog. It is my Hope and my Dream that all who come here to drink, do so and walk away closer to their own Truth to the beat of their own Heart. My Intent is to be the candle in the dark to help you see your way a little more clearly.

In closing, I wish to dedicate Petal’s Unfolding to Lori, a precious friend, who not only gave me the title to this blog, but who also said the magical words, “I BELIEVE IN YOU”. No one has ever said that to me, and those words once directed to me, have touched a place so deep within me, that they have now allowed the River of Life in me, to be shared with you.

With Love,

AmyRose

    1. Aw, Jason. I’m really trying to decide what to do. I’ve formed so many relationships here on WP, yet WP continues to be at times hugely stressful to deal with. I read your post about WP and I in turn wish you all the best. If you leave WP I really hope I will find you. Leave all kinds of links on OM so we who follow you know where to go. 🙂

  1. I have had many of the same type of health experiences….I guess anyone with a body will eventually have to deal with failing and malfunctioning parts.Several years ago, I had to have the RAI (radioactive Iodine) treatment for an overactive thyroid (Graves) and it took some time to get that straightened out. While bad things are happening, it is hard for me to see that good may come from it in the future. I have been told (repeatedly) that everything happens for a reason. Looking back…I see that is true!

    1. It may be, it just may be. Yet that is only a part of it. I “feel” energy. That being said. your vibration I recognize as my own, or similar, if you will. I know you walk the Higher Path in all of Life, for energy does not lie. It just IS. Thank you for taking the time to read my “about page”. It has been a while since I made sure it needs updating or changing. I trust for now that what is written, is exactly which IS. May you have a wonderful day. I am soon headed out to my gardens, with a good 5-6 hours of “work” ahead of me. Love, Amy ❤

  3. Amy I had to read your words again, as we both have been through much I find joy and inspiration in the words from your always selfless heart…one day take the time and send me one of your pictures, telling me 4-6 words, what the photo means to you and I will write a poem using the photo, giving you the credit. Hugs and blessings always my sister!

    1. In order to gain the selfless state, that one journeys through many a fire, many a trial, many a sorrow, so that the Spirit, which knows only Love, may be able to fully shine without restraint. That way, those who have traversed those journeys and lived, are able to share their Spirit ofLove with others who fly to their Light. …. There are many times I do not wish to continue, yet the Strength that now lives in me assists me to do so. As with me, it is with you. ❤

    1. Sorry I am a bit confused. Do you mean Amanda? Are you talking about my response to Amanda? And if so, which response? If I remember we spoke a number of times. I really Love Amanda, and have the utmost respect for her. So I usually really speak my mind when I speak with her. I know I can. So write back to let me know if you meant Amanda instead of Amy in your above comment to me (Amy) and which in particular conversation were you referring to? You have me very curious now. 🙂 ❤

  5. What an emotional and powerful introduction to yourself, Amy. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone who has is so bold and honest about themselves and their story and today walk around strong. Life certainly is challenging and it’s during the challenging times we learn the most – and most importantly learn to appreciate what we’ve got. ““I BELIEVE IN YOU” – such a powerful phrase indeed. Four simple words that mean so much. Lori is an amazing person 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your love and stories with us, and I’m glad I stumbled upon your blog through Amy’s blog in the comments section (http://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/) ❤ 💕

    1. I am glad too that you stumbled upon my Petals, Mabel. I really am happy that you are enjoying my work, and that you have come here to my About page to see who I am. What is the point of not telling the Truth about oneself? I have worked many years to BE who I am this day. I came from basically nothing and had to learn how to build my Life around Love and Truth. Now I am sharing what I have learned and am still learning with all those who do come to Petals. My photography in many ways has been my therapy. My JOY is in getting to know you. With Love, Amy ❤

It is a bit embarassing, and I’m surprised I left it on Petals. Truthfully I have been so focused on the present I completely forgot about it and the circumstances why I opened this blog. You did me a favor, Erika. I am going to be deleting these posts. So, no I won’t be participating. Sorry, friend. Love, Amy ❤

  7. woe – 733 thoughts on your ABOUT already…and now one more is added. Still, I felt compelled to write a few lines as your ABOUT is so lovely and written from the heart. 2 years not being able to walk, a thyroid not functioning and a NDE..those are pretty rough times you had to get through. You talk about the World of Magic that you then entered…and I so understand THAT. I haven’t had the same or even similar trials in my life (although my thyroid is basically gone too :-)) but I still experience the journeys to the ‘other side’ as magical. Unfortunately there are times I’d rather be there than here….but I am here for a reason, I suspect, so as long as that is the case trying to make the best of it, right?

    1. I have read your words, walked away, thougtht about them, and now say to you … you have no idea how deeply you have stirred my Soul. I have paid a high price for what I have accomplished on my Healing Journey, one that I am still paying, yet I would not deter from the Path I am now on for anything in the world. To find my authenticity is the Greatest Gift I have ever given to myself. To fight and to claw my way out of darkness, only to find myself not knowing anything about myself, and going from there, inch by painful inch, in order to know myself and then to jump off the cliff to embrace courage to show myself, has been an incredible Journey! The stories I could tell … More people on WP “see me” whereas my own family “fear me”. I have managed to rise above the ugliness and the deceit in order to live a Life in Love, in Truth, in Peace, and that scares those who are still drowning in darkness. Wow, I am just sitting here in amazement that here you come along and within moments, “see me”. Bless you from the bottom of my Heart!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

I am only living my Life courageously, determined not to allow circumstances to destroy me and in so doing, sharing that which I have learned and know onto all who frequent Petals. I am far from perfect, and if I were, I would not be on this planet! I’m still learning, still falling, still getting up to put the pieces back together again. I believe my circumstances have made me the strong vibrant woman I am today. God bless you for leaving such heart stirring words!!! May what you see on Petals assist YOU on your own Life Journey!

      1. Sorry, sometimes I am flooded with thoughts and very little comes out when I speak or write. Not great for communication. I was crushing through your posts, looking at your images. Images that have meaning for the photographer and could have stayed archived in some private album. Or they could be shared. Shared because we are not alone, and our thoughts and feelings are not isolated. God is perfect without us, but He came for us. I might think that He came for me, because I personalize everything.

        Looking at your images online, freely accessible to thousands reminds me that we are not alone, and that gives me great comfort.

      2. It’s taken a great deal of inner deliberation and improvement and of course, courage, for me to start revealing myself and my Life as I have been recently here on Petals. If I refuse to share my Life and all that it contains in order to encourage and to inspire, what is the point to Life? I’ve come from such a bleak and harsh childhood, my beginning, to a place presently in which I truly Love myself, respect myself, heck like myself, and I so wish to reach out to those who come here to tell them ALL is possible with Love and with God. Many from different aspects of Life come to my blog with different beliefs and so I have several names for God, all true of course, so that others are not uncomfortable here. Anyone who really knows me knows that I could not live without my Heart’s Guidance, the Sacred Place God lives in me. I am honored that you journeyed throughout my posts in order to get a hold of who I am. Bless you! I also must close comments on many of my posts right now due to so many wish to interact with me and me with them, and I also am just so relishing Life right now in real time. Yet when I do talk to someone, it is straight from the Heart, and it is not preplanned as I have done here. Welcome, John, and may what I share inspire you to live your Life to the fullest. May God Bless you for Blessing me today. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. Sweetheart, yes Life for me has been tough lately. All I can do is breathe, stay as calm as possible, and keep my focus on Higher Aspects of Life. That doesn’t mean I haven’t fallen, for I have, but I really am trying not to do so. I just posted today with comments open. To bring you up to date, my Karma, who I have had for 17 years is now in his last phase of Life. I just lost one of our fur babies and here I go once again a few weeks later. Tee an outdoor barn cat I Love and take care of, had an infected bite. That has been addressed by taking him into our Vet. Now all I have to do is to keep things humming smoothly and myself calm. Coming to acceptance about Karma is what I am doing right now and giving him smiles instead of tears. Bless you for this comment, Monica. It means a lot to me. Much Love, Amy ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. Unfortunately, Amy, I know how it is to lose someone you love. When I was born a beautiful dog waited for me at home. He died many years ago. I cried a lot at that time. Now, in the same situation with your Karma is my father’s cat, Bubu. She’s 17, with two months older than me. We grew up together. And now she doesn’t eat, meow all the time and she is very skinny. My grandpa said that Bubu will not be alive next year. So, I know how it is to suffer. That’s why I told you that we have to be strong together.
        Love and kisses, dear Amy ❤

I was really just stepping into my equilibrium when I got blindsided by people who according to what they do, should care. Today I let go the sorrow, the pain, and yes the anger at the continual callousness so many in this world display. The forest will heal me, will bring the color back into my face. My Karma was a piece of my soul … I honestly do not have words to describe the bond between he and me. He IS my Star Child and always will be. Learning to live without him and to choose HAPPY has not been easy to do. And in so saying, I will not allow others to steal my JOY. Bless you, dear friend!!! (((HUGS))) ❤

    I do not share here my personal story, but I say only, that I have been rescued from sure death three times in my life. The first time already before my birth. I am child of wartime, if You wonder.

    In Finland, we have a saying: “life teaches You to walk slowly”. This is valid for me. A couple of years ago, I lost my sight from my left eye. So life thought me again to walk slowly.

    Thank You AmyRose for this post.

    1. My dear man, I do not speak of my past often, yet I was led to share this information in the way I did on my About Page in order for those who wish to understand me a little better could do so. I was not in a war zone so to speak, yet the environment I grew up was no less then a war to a child. It is what we do with our lives despite what we have been through that is important. I overcome my inner darkness (and yes we all have it) when I focus on Beauty, my camera, my photography and little sayings. When I am here interacting with those who wish to interact with me, this is another way I focus on the glass half full. I determined a long time ago that I would not be defeated by the forces that seemed to do their very best to do so. Out of the murky past, many life challenges since emerged and still are to this day, yet again I will not bow my knee to fear nor will I allow outside circumstances to stand in my way of being me. I was not allowed to be me as a child but now? SMILING It took me a long time to find me, but here I am, just who I am today. And getting better with each passing day. As for slowing down, that is when we see the miracles of Life all around us. Take care!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤
