I take my wooden bowl down to the garden and ask the Pansy plants if I may have a few choice flowers for my daily salad. They always graciously say yes. The Flower Fairy offers her greeting. I find the whole experience Simply Enchanting, and the salad enlivening!- Rhianne

Poetry is a mystic, sensuous mathematics of fire, smoke-stacks, waffles, pansies, people, and purple sunsets.

If you strive to be pure of heart and mind and are ready to face the world and share your many gifts, beauty, and wisdom in a deeply satisfying way that contributes a legacy of love, then you and I are kindred spirits. Pansy can assist us to accomplish this with grace.

What if we had an ally who could help us to achieve our intention to find this purity and courage with a simply enchanted elegance that was easy and graceful? What if we could let go of working so HARD to be clear of negative thoughts and have our heart chakras open wide, activating deep healing in our immune systems and clearing disorders we have carried for decades, or eons? I have asked myself these questions many times, and now, the magical world of enchantment, the Deva's and inner guides, are providing answers that have been right in front of us all along.

According to the ancients, and many well known and reputable healers, we can call upon the Pansy to be a support for us in enhancing and healing our hearts and as a result, our lives. Life Herself, provides so many wonderful remedies for our human “conditions”. Yet, in our current modern age, we often overlook or underestimate the amazing gifts that the pretty posies growing lushly in our home gardens have to offer.  But now, the wise Mother of Life within each of us, is calling us back to the Simply Enchanted world of heart wisdom, and a big part of that world, is Nature. And a wondrous part of Nature, is the flowers and plants.

 

Five Pansies a day keeps the doctor away!

Dr. Jim Duke, retired USDA botanist and author of the best selling “Green Pharmacy” series of books explains, taking 100 milligrams daily of rutin will strengthen your capillary walls, making them more opaque and thus mitigating the effects of varicose and spider veins. But Dr. Duke strongly suggests you get your rutin from pansy flowers instead of a pill. Just five of the fabulously edible flowers a day (try sprinkling them overtop of your salads) supplies that helpful dose, and the synergistic effects you get from eating a whole food provide much greater potential benefit than an isolated extract.
