Anemone Symbolism, Rain and Fairies

Wood Anemone Fairy by Margaret Tarrant

Yesterday, I found two anemones standing in the vase on the table – one dark pink, the other violet. Whenever new flower appears in my life or in my house, I always take it as a message from the angels. Flowers are beautiful in themselves, but I am very aware of their deeper meaning or symbolism as well.

Anemone is derived from the Greek for "windflower". In mythology, it is said the anemone sprung from the tears of Aphrodite as she mourned the death of her love, Adonis.

In folklore the anemone is believed to bring luck and protection against evil (=negativity, wrong doing).

The flower is said to advise us about coming rain by closing its petals, and fairies were believed to sleep beneath the petals of the wood anemone during the night after they closed at sunset.

Priestess in Atlantis

Mermaid in Atlantis
In her book "Sage-ing while Age-ing" Shirley Maclaine writes that the people of Atlantis had red hair, slanted blue eyes, were very pale with white skin, slim and tall. That basically describes me! Interesting.

I know that I had an incarnation in Atlantis when I acted as a high priest or priestess. I don't think the genders were as explicit or defined then as they are now so I can't interpret the energy in terms of today's gender perceptions.

I see myself in front of a magnificent temple, on a marble platform, in a long blue robe with wide sleeves with arms outstretched, speaking to a huge audience of people who I'm telling something of importance. They are cheering at times and looking thoughtful and contemplative at others.

Just to be clear, of course you don't need to look like you did in Atlantis if you have similar memories today. Your consciousness can have manifested as a green or brown eyed, or short or dark skinned body today but you will know.

I definitely look like the Atlanteans Shirley describes in this life, which is interesting because it fits with my memories and trustworthy people such as Edgar Cayce and Ivica (Braco's teacher) have said that many “children of Atlantis" are returning to Earth at this important time. I know in my heart that this is true and that I am one of them. It is a visceral knowledge, not just a belief. If you are a child of Atlantis yourself, you will know exactly what I mean.

The Deeper Meaning of 1 in 2011

The Number 1, 11:11 and 2011

First, a little intriguing maths for you:

This is amazing and fun to do! This year 2011 we will experience 4 unusual dates:
1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11  

Now, take the last 2 digits of the year you were born, plus the age you will be this year - and it will add up to 111! Go ahead... try it out!

So, it is quite obvious that the number 1 is very important this year. For a while now, lightworkers and aware people all over the world have told me that they keep seeing 1:11 or 11:11 on their clocks or around them.

The number 1 has a very important message. In my book Unicorn Magic I explain that
One primarily deals with strong will, positivity, and pure energy. The number 1 is the number of new beginnings, action and leadership. Symbolically, 1 represents both kinds of action:
physical and mental. When 1 is recurring in your life, it indicates a time to take action, be optimistic, and initiate change. Frequent sightings of the number 1 encourage you that your actions will be rewarded.
Master Numbers (all the same numbers) energetically accentuate the meanings of single digits. They are considered to be some of the most powerful vibrations in the universe. They symbolize raw untapped potential and assist you in achieving union consciousness.
11, 111, or 11:11
You are reminded to let go of conditioned and limited ego-mind beliefs and come into alignment with your authentic self. Watch your thoughts. You are a conscious creator. You are becoming One with the Oversoul in the abundant creation of your heart’s desires.
(Excerpts from Unicorn Magic: How to Manifest Your Desires by Living a Life of Divine Love, pp. 97-100.)
The stone that vibrates to the master number 11 is Jade.

The master number 11 signifies the wounded healer and teacher but it also symbolizes the abundant potential of the soul. It reminds you of your potential to be a source of inspiration and illumination for people. The number 11 (this year) tells us we possess an exceptional amount of energy and intuition. Jade is a stone which carries much wisdom so it is not surprising that it vibrates to the number 11.

Me, My Soul Group, And I

   The Story of Braco

A a few months ago, I received a parcel in the post from my dear friend Stephanie. Although Stephanie lives in California and I am staying in Germany at the moment, we keep in close contact and I feel like I have known her for ages – and I literally mean ages, as in thousands of lifetimes – although in this life we've only known each other for about a year.

Last year, Stephanie was hosting a spiritual book club on the radio, and my book Unicorn Magic was the first month's selection. Although the book club took place at 5 pm in San Francisco, and it was 3 am at my house in the UK, I stayed up and discussed my book in a wonderful, insightful dialogue around half the globe.

Stephanie has a blog, Diary of a Lightworker as well, which I think you will love, especially if you enjoy my blog and spiritual topics and experiences.

So, in the parcel from Stephanie was a book by Angelika Whitecliff about Braco. I had never heard the name before but after I had read a few pages I was curious, and went on Google to find out more. What I read intrigued me even more and when I saw that there was an event two hours away from me in Stuttgart, Germany, in just five days,  my curiosity compelled me to go. Well, I loved the entire experience and have been going ever since. I have Stephanie to thank for this inspiring, healing connection.

When I meet members of my Soul Group, it feels like I know them. I don't necessarily know their physique in this life, but my soul remembers. There is an instant connection. There is a feeling as if I am just picking up a friendship, or a relationship, where it ended. There is a feeling as if no time has passed since last being together. I also have a feeling that I can say just about anything, and be totally honest, and be understood and accepted. I usually meet members of my Soul Group under the strangest of circumstances, which are so unlikely that they have to be divinely orchestrated synchronicities. Karen, Stephanie's sister, is also a member of my Soul Group. I “met" her on Facebook, on Doreen Virtue's fan page. I visit this page only a few times a year and Karen's link is the only one I've ever clicked. She is also a wonderful and inspiring friend in my life.

 This time, when I went to see Braco, I saw an enourmous golden-white aura around him. At times, there were two of him, one much larger (about 20 feet) and he seemed to step outside of himself, towards the front. I felt deep inner peace and strength. When I left the atmosphere was light and peaceful, and also very playful.

My little two-year-old son came to greet me drenched. He had been having great fun splashing in the fountain outside the congress building.

Unexpected Gifts, Inner and Outer

St Michael with Halo - this Halo of Light is almost identical with the one I saw around Braco

Today, 8 July 2011, is my 11th wedding anniversary, so this is a very special day for me. Since Charles, my husband, had to be back in England today, and I am still in Germany, we decided to celebrate early, so last Saturday, on 2 July, I went to see Braco again, this time with my husband, dad, and two kids. Braco is pronounced "Brah-tso" and means "little brother" in Croatian. Sessions, or meetings, with Braco do not cost any money. He does not speak to visitors nor give interviews to the media, and yet 1000s of people come to his sessions. Here is a short description of Braco from his website
Braco does not talk to his visitors, nor does he touch them or use any other form of nonverbal suggestion: He simply is gazing at them. But his successes and the reports of his visitors about fascinating recoveries and positive changes in their lives attract more and more people from all over the world. And during those silent sessions people feel deeply touched even without having any direct and personal contact with Braco. They feel touched by an invisible and silent power, which is flowing through them and they try to open and assimilate that power...
Braco never promises help or cure to his visitors and he also says about himself, that he is not a healer. He says: “I am a normal person, I just found that invisible energy and I want to share it with everybody. I know, that everybody else can feel and carry that energy as well...
Braco describes those moments, when he is standing in front of the people with following words: “I try to take all those people in my arms and give them an invisible and deep hug of love and warmth. I try to enlight that spark which we all carry in ourselves and which can build that wonderful flame of love in us.
From my own experience, I feel that this "energy" comes straight from Source, with Braco as the human transmitter or conduit. Source, and Braco, are non-denominational. They are not “copyrighted" to any one religion or philosophy. The experience of this energy is different every time, and cannot adequately be described in words. It has to be experienced.

 His teacher and mentor said Braco is a “Child of Atlantis".  I thought that was interesting.

At meetings with Braco, there is a beautiful tradition of bringing flowers to show appreciation, beauty and gratitude. The bouquets are handed to helpers as we walk into the session room, and another flower is given to us as we leave. I brought three different bouquets of flowers to the meeting: one of white roses, one of white roses with pink edges, and one of soft pink roses. When my husband and I left the gazing session, we each received a single deep red rose. I am drying the two blossoms and they are on the left side of my computer. They still emit a very special energy.

During the session, as I was gazing at Braco,  I distinctly saw his aura as opalescent, or sparkling white with rainbow colors dashing and dancing through, especially around is head. The “halo" around his head was about 1 m across, all around his head and touching his shoulders. It reminded me of the halos depicted on paintings of saints and angels in medieval churches. Now I definitely know, because of this experience, that these halos are real phenomena and not just pretty decoration or a symbol of heightened spirituality.

 I also saw his face in fragments, shifting, moving, doubling... like a painting by Picasso. I kept thinking there was something wrong with my eyes, but when I looked at the bouquets of lilies by his side, they were perfectly fixed and normal. As soon as I tried to look at him though, everything shifted out of focus again.

Now, as soon as I walked out of the session on my husband's arm, I felt that something was different with my right leg. (As a side note, I have not been able to walk properly since last October due to a brain tumor.) I was walking naturally! Of course, my leg was still weak, but it was moving the right way, the position of my foot which was always extended outwards was normal, and the movements of my muscles and knee joint were fluid and coordinated. I was standing tall, and felt connected or awakened to my own inner strength.

So, every time I see Braco, I am physically healed a bit more, but most importantly I have an all-pervading sense of inner peace, calm, and personal strength.

When we were leaving, my husband and I were stopped in the parking garage by a lady who was about to see Braco too. She saw our flowers and asked us if we were just coming from the event. She had a gift bag filled with eight Braco DVDs that she wanted to give somebody. We had a lovely chat and she left, after presenting us with her wonderful present.
