|Mary with a rose|
~Lydia M. Child
When we connect with the angels we can sometimes smell the scent of flowers as a sign that the angels are nearby. In fact, everything has a smell which we can receive if our senses are finely tuned enough. For instance, anger smells acrid, whereas jealousy has an highly acidic smell and hatred smells putrid. Clarity smells clean, like freshly washed clothes, and peace smells like a meadow in the spring.
The unexplained scent of flowers is probably the most frequent sign the angels send us. Our sense of smell is the sense least likely to be blocked by mental constraints. Because it doesn't pass through our logical, analytical brain but is received straight away in the instinctive part of our brain, we do not edit the sensory information the way we may restrict other senses. Often, Mother Mary is also first sensed by the presence of the smell of roses.
