Nymph Nirvana Before and After 2

BEFORE AND AFTER



Nymph NirvanaThis is a tree nymph butterfly. If a
butterfly crosses your path, it means good luck. In the Japanese culture
butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital
bliss. In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is "Psyche", which
translated means "soul". Butterflies also symbolize: Resurrection,
Transition, Celebration, Lightness, Time and Soul. Symmetry is another
manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.

Perpetual Passion - This design of columbine, red & lavender roses and bleeding hearts symbolize love, romance and seduction. The lavender rose symbolizes love at first sight. The red rose symbolizes true love. It is also a flower essence of the root chakra. The columbine symbolizes love and seduction and is linked to Freya the Norse goddess of love. The symbolism of the Bleeding Heart is undying love, grace and fidelity. It is a flower essence of the heart chakra.

It is thought to be especially useful after a heart break. These blossoms are also frequently used in love spells.

Freaky Friday - Psychedelic Fun!


This is a yellow daisy and red Peruvian Lily design.  The flower symbolism associated with the daisy is purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity and new beginnings.  The Peruvian lily symbolizes friendship and devotion.

The word daisy comes from the Old English word dægeseage, meaning "day's eye".   The daisy was thus named because at night the petals close over the yellow center and during the day they re-open or “awaken”.  This is how the fun saying “as fresh as a daisy” was created; it infers that someone had a restful sleep.

There is a Celtic Legend about the death of an infant.  God sprinkled daisies all over the world when an infant passed to ease the parents suffering and to cheer them up.

The daisy is the sacred flower of the Norse Goddess of love, beauty and fertility, Freya.  The daisy embodies childbirth, motherhood and new beginnings. 

The daisy is actually two flowers in one, called a composite flower.  The yellow center is called the disc floret and the outer petals are the ray floret.  Because they are actually two flower in one, blending it such beautiful harmony the also symbolize true love!

Before and After

Whimsical PersuasionThis is a Sapho Longwing butterfly. It is not exactly known for sure how this butterfly was named but it is believed it is named after the Greek poet Sappho, who authored lyrical poetry about love. Sadly most of her poems are lost but a few were preserved in fragmented form.


The Mandarin Chinese word for butterfly is "hu-tieh". "Tieh" means "70 years", therefore butterflies have become a symbol for a long life. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. Butterflies also symbolize: Resurrection, Transition, Celebration, Lightness, Time and Soul.

BEFORE AND AFTER


Perseverance - This is a green heron I photographed on Stump Lake part of the Mississippi river in Bemidji, MN where I live.  Bemidji is the first city on the Mississippi where the river begins and you can actually walk across it as it is only a few inches deep and a few feet wide!

The heron is noted for intelligence and solitude. As a Celtic symbol, the heron represents patience, independence and longevity. In Egypt the Heron is honored as the creator of light. As a Chinese symbol the Heron represents strength, purity, patience and long life. The Iroquois tribe held the heron as a very good omen, a very lucky sign. They recognized the heron as an expert fisher/hunter. As such, they believed that sighting a heron before a hunt was a sign that the hunt would be a good one. The heron is a beautiful creature, exhibiting grace, and noble stature. It’s no wonder the Native Indians and ancients honored the heron throughout the centuries.

is believed if a pansy is placed over someone’s eyes while sleeping, upon
waking that person will fall in love with the first person to appear. Symmetry
is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow
of ch'i

fun music that goes with this short video!




BEEmidji – This title of course is a play on words but to
explain further it is a play on the city I live in Bemidji. (pronounced bee mid
gee). Ancient Egyptians saw the bee as a symbol of royalty, wisdom and
regeneration. Bees also symbolize communication and fruitful activity,
nurturing, family, community and teamwork as they all work together to support
the hive and their queen. In Chinese symbolism the bee represents love and
marriage. It also represents joy, fortune and harmony. Symmetry is another manifestation
of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.

Masquerade Before And After





BEFORE AND AFTER



Masquerade - The Day of the Dead a.k.a. El Dia de los
Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd. During this time the sky over
the Mexican mountain village of Anguangeo is strewn with flickers of fiery
orange and browns. They are not from the colors of autumn leaves but from
countless monarch butterflies concluding their journey to the hills covered in
firs.

The locals believe the monarchs are the returning spirits of
their deceased relatives, inexplicably returning the same time every year. The
ancient Aztecs believe that the dearly departed souls return as hummingbirds
and butterflies.



The Mandarin Chinese word for butterfly is
"hu-tieh". "Tieh" means "70 years", therefore
butterflies have become a symbol for a long life. If a butterfly crosses your
path, it means good luck. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be
representative of young maidens and marital bliss. In ancient Greek the word
for butterfly is "Psyche", which translated means "soul".

Meditation Monday!

Meditative Musing
Third Eye Chakra – The pansy and the color Indigo are associated with the Third Eye chakra. When this chakra is unbalanced symptoms include creative block, and being unable to bond with dedication and sophisticated love. This color stimulates the senses when in balance you are compelled to one to follow the soul's path with trust. The key work is intuition; the ability to see things from a 'higher” viewpoint rather than through the ego of desire. The indigo energy connects the individual with the unconscious self, and offers the experience of Universal Wholeness. When in balance one is endowed with intuition, imagination and increased dream activity.

Crown Chakra - Violet is associated with the Crown charka. If this chakra is unbalance you suffer from a lack of clarity, materialism and avoidance. Once balanced you are focused and strong intuition. The color violet relates to self-knowledge and spiritual awareness. The highest potential of this energy is union with the Light Body. The violet energy connects us to our spiritual purification that may enhance focus and connection with meditation, yoga, dreams, and universal understanding


Other symbolisms: Purple is the most powerful visible wavelength of electromagnetic energy. It’s just a few steps away from x-rays and gamma rays. Perhaps this explains why purple is associated with supernatural energy and the cosmos than with the physical world as we know it. Purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love. The flower symbolism associated with the daisy is purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity. Pansy’s symbolize thoughtfulness, remembrance and love. The pansy is also a flower essence of the Third Eye Chakra.

How about some purple power? Purple is the most powerful visible wavelength of electromagnetic energy. It’s just a few steps away from x-rays and gamma rays. Perhaps this explains why purple is associated with supernatural energy and the cosmos than with the physical world as we know it. Purple has also been associated with royalty.

In the array of chakra colors violet is the color or the crown chakra. It relates to self-knowledge and spiritual awareness. The highest potential of this energy is union with the Light Body. The violet energy connects us to our spiritual purification that may enhance focus and connection with meditation, yoga, dreams, and universal understanding.

In the array of chakra colors yellow is the color of the Solar Plexus chakra. Yellow relates to self worth and how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us. This is the area of ego and will. Yellow offers clarity of thought, increases awareness, and stimulates curiosity.
