Heal your inner wounded girl of 52 by adding more sweet flowers into the story of your life as you rewrite it….a story for men too!

Beloved Flower Lover,

The time is right to go into your beautiful magical garden and meet your inner girl. Invite her into your arms. Hug her and tell her that you will take care of her. Tell her that. Tell that part of yourself that was left behind that you love her and will take care of her. Hug her, tell her and do it for 40 days. Simple but a essential . Go back and visit her for the next 40 days.

We wanted to get to the point because after the Saturn Return at 30, and the midlife crisis at 40, one of the lesser known, but most significant rites of passage, at 50, is the  Chiron Return.

The purpose of the Chiron Return is layered with meaning. It invites us to reconcile our deepest pain and our relationship to the flawed, mortal human that we inevitably must accept with the spiritual journey to heal our wounds, both physical and psychological.

How do we do that?

Dr Christiane Northrup reminds us that at this age we are in the birth canal of our own life and to think about how we are just done with everything. To be with I am done and then to wait for some revelation to emerge. This is part of  healing the inner girl by going to her and telling her that you will never leave her.  In other words, to be done with tying to prove your inner worth.

 

It’s like what Cathy Burroughs calls, ‘returning back to the crime’. That of feeling unable to find one’s niche or place in the world. Hence Chiron in our charts also represents where we feel disenfranchised and where we can contribute most to those who themselves feel to be outcasts. We need to be more of an egg and less than a sperm. To get so happy. To let them come to you. To hydrate self with laughter, fun, good food an nourishment.

So, it is a transit of significant integration and great opportunity to step over a missed threshold into a lived experience of healing and reclamation of our greatest gifts.Heal your inner wounded child and see what happens.

 

Chiron,the Wounded Healer.When we reach the age of 50 to 52 when we experience a Chiron Return that forces us to deal with the original wound and anything else we repressed that resonated from that wound.along comes Chiron to help me release those repressed emotions that travel all the way back to the earliest violations.Once we release the repressed emotions we are shown a life path or share our wisdom in a healing way with others

Cathy Burroughs says that ages 49-52 represents a watershed, which delineates the end of the heroic youth, as we enter the realm of “elder. Like the Chinese character for crisis, the Chiron Return represents a “dangerous opportunity.” Here, we revisit ancient patterns; have the opportunity to go back to the source of our deepest, unresolved wounds; to heal them, once and for all, so that we can live the remainder of our lives in keeping with our true soul purpose.

 

Ms Burroughts goes onto say, that during this critical time, we may relinquish that which is misshapen or inauthentic; we may re-order our priorities; or liberate the unlived passionate expression of our spirit, living a life which is intimately creative and restorative to our true selves. By accomplishing this, we can congruently contribute to the fundamental healing of ourselves, our family or soul group; our society, and our planet.

Women think of this transitional time as the time of menopause, but men also experience a significant and life-altering change at this time. Thats what we are doing. Elizabeth Spring reminds us that the Chiron Return life passage, around the age of fifty, is a time when our world can expand or shut down. It’s not an easy passage. We all create “fictions” about our life story and those of others close to us, and it’s at this point that we are challenged to enlarge the story of our lives—the story we tell ourselves about “how we each are and how it all is.” Those of us who aren’t flexible enough to adjust our “story lines” at this point, might find that our lives can change radically—Michael Jackson for instance, died at his Chiron Return. He was preparing for a world tour, a great expansion, but his old habits didn’t change.

Ms Springs tells us that its time to rewrite our story. So essentially we are called to enlarge the story of our lives at this point. Carl Jung, at his Chiron Return, enlarged the story of how he felt about other cultures by going to Africa and New Mexico in these years. He stepped out of the cultural limitations of a European White Man and looked at the world through different eyes. He expanded his world, and enlarged his understanding.

We suggest that you use flowers to create the 40 day ritual for yourself as your heal your inner child. After this, you are the new born. Be gentle with your self and take all the love and support from all those who love you. This is your rebirth!

“I am 52 and I am done”, she said as she stared at her sweet flowers and decided to allow her garden to guide her

Beloved Flower Lover,

She felt she had failed, she was so done with life. She was still having her period, but was just changing. Nothing felt sweet anymore. One day she just felt she was totally done.

Coming into the space, that we all shared, one of our team who was aware of this started to talk to her. Her tips were,

  1. Be OK, with being done with mothering others
  2. Imagine going into a garden and make a ritual of flirting with life in what ever way suits you. Flirt in a way where you do not care about anything!
  3. Add more fun and joy into life
  4. Allow  the flower of life to return.
  5. Make your own sweetness your priority

How to use the Artichoke’s tender hearted flower protected by strong layers of leaves

Beloved Flower Lover,

If you are choking back your true thoughts and feelings because you are afraid of upsetting others use the artichoke.Use the artichoke in your designs, in your food, as a tincture or a flower essence.

The artichoke flowers  inspires us to express ourselves in a way that it is authentic. and in ways that will not create the conflicts we fear. She has much to teach us!

100_9797

According to Greek mythology, Zeus fell in love with a beautiful woman named Cynara and swept her up to Mount Olympus. Angered when she slipped back to earth to visit her family, he turned her into the first artichoke.

The artichoke is great to use if you have a tendency to be fixed in your ideas and want to loosen up. The delicate flower and tough many leaved exterior symbolizes artichokes ability to break through hardened heart patterns which close the crown chakra, opening it the heart with grace and flexibility.

Going further into  Greek myth, the artichoke owes its existence to the sexually active Zeus who on a visit to his brother Poseidon spotted a gorgeous girl, Cynara, bathing on the beach.

He became deeply drawn to her, seduced her, made her a goddess, and took her back with him to Mount Olympus. Cynara, however, lonesome and missing her mother, soon took to  going home to visit her family without his knowledge. This act so infuriated Zeus that in a fit of temper  he tossed Cynara from Olympus and turned her into an artichoke. The modern scientific name for artichoke Cynara cardunculus derives from this powerful  girl who followed her heart despite others not wanting her to.

Perhaps there is another story for us now in modern time.In a way, the myth is indicative of the artichoke’s nature. Only a tiny part of the vegetable is eaten. The exterior is hard and inflexible, even when cooked, and one must peel off each leaf to get to the “heart of the plant.” A tiny amount of the bottom of the leaf is often dipped in sauces  before the teeth scrape off the flesh of the plant. The heart, as well, needs to be separated from its hard thistle bottom to be edible. Thus the artichoke takes a bit of work for the eater, just as Cynara represented more work than some say  Zeus was willing to bestow on her.

Today we suggest that it points us to give ourselves more patience. To give ourselves a little more love. To listen to the heart inside us all and to be willing to be flexible enough to give ‘her’ what is at her innermost heart. Yes, the external beauty is wonderful, but the heart is what wants to be expressed here. So taking time to be more flexible, to listen, and learn what is at her innermost heart. And to then ‘support’ her expression of that.

Artichokes represent peace, hope and prosperity.

There is another Greek myth about the Artichoke.

Cinara was a nymph who was turned into a thistle flower by her lovers jealous wife, so that he could never touch her again. Perhaps this  remind us to have fun, to stop judging what others are meant to be. To avoid judging those we regard as being evolved. it invites us to let go of a need to control  our experiences and that of others and to learn to enjoy ourselves  so much more

You another way of interpreting these myths. Its all about how you want the stories to serve you.

 

So there you have it.!

Oscar Wilde says “Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.” We replace books with flowers!
