As soon as May arrives, I’m out at dawn walking around my mountain property looking for bees, blossoms and fey… Knowing full well the fairy gates are wide open for the Beltane season. (Halfway to summer!)
The lily of the valley blooms bob gently under the weight of the dew. They’re calling my eyes downward demanding joyfully I create a few minutes for their supremely scented glory.
Squatting down low in my Pjs and face to face with the sweetest smelling scent..Ohhhh yesss.. . The sun glistens off the tiny fragrant flowers and I close my eyes for a few breaths. Very powerful magic.
When you consciously take the time to breathe in a pleasant flower, you not only get the sensory sensual benefits of those cute little odorant molecules…but also the physiological practice of breathing deep into the lower lungs, improves vagal tone and provides calming effects through your Vagus nerve.
It’s stress relief!
Blessings from the Earth are everywhere when you make yourself available to them.
I let myself swoon a bit, which is fine with me, I like that feeling of euphoria and connection to divine frequency through scent.
“Smell is the potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived. The odors of fruits waft me to to my southern home, to my childhood frolics in the peach orchard. Other odors, instantaneous and fleeting, cause my heart to dilate joyously or contract with remembered grief. Even as I think of smells, my nose is full of scents that start to awake sweet memories of summers gone and ripening fields far away.”Helen Keller
I went and plucked one tiny frond of new flowers and and tuck it behind my ear.. crowned myself the May Queen. You should too.
