I understand this one.
I had a quest for the Peony. I needed its medicine and its meaning. I talked about it here . And after spending many moments reading into every lore, myth and story of this Flower, I have condensed its meaning to this:
........"And so what I'm hearing, my message is from this indefatigable Flower of Wealth, Nobility and Beauty,
this most sensuous and fragrant flower, though it appears delicate and feminine, she is neither delicate nor fragile, but adaptable and strong with powerful medicine, and who reigns over the forces of darkness who seek to destroy her, to live out her purpose of her dedication to a beautiful world, whilst hiding as an elemental fairy, a nymph, in the folds of a thousand petals."
2 days ago my housemate who works in Whole Foods was informed by the floor manager that they received some peonies in the afternoon. He bought me a bunch, in white.
Thousands of ethereal petals looking so gossamer and delicate...in the purity that is White. And just to add an excruciating embellishment of more beauty just to take you over the edge, is a touch of pink on only a few of the outer petals......siggghhhhhhhh.........
Only the Mother.
The resident Elf, my housemate, finally fixed it.
Peonies on the bridge.
Do you see the excruciating beautiful pink on a few of the petals?
Peonies with sea shells.....can there possibly be any other more divine combination ??
White Peonies......mercury vase......pink seashells.......sighhhhhhh.........a meditation is coming on......
