"Love is the bridge between you and everything.” ~RumiWhen we speak of love, it is our heart that whispers what is true. When we learn to listen more deeply to what the heart is sharing and knows to be true, we hear our unique heart song which can guide us forward even as it teaches us awareness and caring. The heart as an organ of perception and understanding receives the truth of a matter, the felt sense of an experience. Indeed, it is the heart that informs the brain which leads to action, creating the bridge between self and everything else. As we learn to trust what the heart knows, we make better decisions; we follow our hearts and find joy!
In this cold, winter month of February, we celebrate the spark and passion of a well-tended heart that enkindles the fire of love and compassion. We take time to pay attention to who and what we care for and about.
Here at Woodland Essence, we are deeply grateful for the many plants that nurture the physical and emotional heart, and enhance the relationship between ourselves and nature: Hawthorne flowers and leaves are harvested in the light of Spring, its red berries in the early autumn; Rosa rugosa flowers are individually gathered on a warm summer’s day and infused in sweet glycerine; gentle, yet enervating Tulsi and other plant treasures know what the heart appreciates. May you tend your own heart in beautiful ways.
We wish you time to hear your heart’s song and the courage to follow!
With love and gratitude to you~
Happy Valentine’s Day from your friends at Woodland Essence
