A Beautiful Collection Of Trending Black Flowers.

Roses are red.

Violets are blue.

The most beautiful are black,

To say I love you.

Okay, that was dreadful…. but black flowers are increasing in popularity. They are bold, beautiful and breaking tradition all around the world.

The Bat Orchid

I am not a fan of roses at all, but I have to say I adore the black rose.

Calla Lily ‘Night Cap’ – an exotic variety, its glossy, almost black. So very beautiful.

This is the “I have no idea what it’s called, but its so pretty” flower.

A stunning black orchid.

The dark burgundy or nearly black hellebores are highly appreciated for their colour, and I can see why.

Black Dark Purple Pansy. Mad love for these.

Black Craspedia. It may sound like an STD.. but these little balls are gorgeous.

Asiatic Lilies. This one is my favourite of the bunch.

Black Gerber. Divine.

Do you have a favourite? I would love to hear from you.

The Shapes of Clouds

I remember fondly the idle days of youth when laying on my back in the grass and gazing at the clouds overhead, I would try to make something easily recognizable out of their shapes.  We’ve all done it and while I no longer have the time to just lie around and stare at the sky, when I see an unusual cloud formation, I’ll try to place it with something tangible and familiar.






Take this one for instance, which is of the cloud type Flammagenitus, the name of clouds originated as a consequence of localized natural heat sources, such as forest fires, wildfires or volcanic activity and which, at least in part, consist of water drops.

I can see the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in this, or maybe that old alien Alf if he had his head cocked just so.  Check out the following pictures of clouds and see if you think they look like what most people see them as.

This one doesn’t look like anything in particular to me but when it was downloaded from a group of pictures of clouds that were supposed to resemble dogs.  I don’t see that at all.  Mighty Mouse maybe.  Can you?

This one I think is quite obvious, but what is obvious to me might not be the same to you.  Surely though, you see an angel, right?

I don’t hesitate a second here.  This is clearly a Fairy Godmother, complete with wand.

This also came to mind immediately as a lion cub. Or does it look more like a bear cub?

If you don’t see a fish in this image I would imagine you are one of the few who doesn’t.  Probably a red snapper.  ;


And this?  A poodle praying of course!

I’m going to go with duck here.

This one is clearly a no-brainer.  It looks like a kidney.  Right?

Now when I first looked at this I say a rabbit, but now on second glance, it could be a rubber duck in some child’s bathtub.

According to the same cloud group of “dogs” as mentioned before this is also supposed to be a poodle.

I guess I don’t have to name this one Flipper for you to guess what I think this looks like, or would you say Jaws would fit it better, or something else entirely?

Dumbo without a doubt.  Maybe not the giant ears so much, but definitely the trunk.

I see a galloping horse and rider here without a doubt but on closer scrutiny, I can also see in the middle area what appears to be a woman placing a hat, or maybe it’s a halo on the rider’s head.

What is your opinion of these shapes and do you agree with the same images I saw?  Please let us know in comments if you see something wildly imaginative or even if you agree with what seem to be the most common images seen.  One thing I think we can all agree on though is that Mother Nature is a highly gifted artist.

The Akashic Records Mapping Your Soul’s Journey

What are the Akashic Records? The imprint of every soul that holds each and every thought, emotion and deed that has ever occurred in your lifetimes. Have you ever experienced a moment of Deja Vu, that distinct feeling that you have done this, seen this or remember an event exactly? Just a moment from the files of your Akashic Records.

You can use these to find your purpose, expand your talents and find greater success and joy in this life.  Do you have what others might call a “knack” for something? Have you ever undertaken a project that involved something you’ve never had any experience with and you just “knew” what to do with minimal instruction?  All part of your Akashic Records. Your past lives in excruciating detail.

It doesn’t matter if you’re an old soul or a young soul, the Akashic Record holds all of your thoughts and actions and deeds from each of your lifetimes and when you are able to access this treasure trove of information you will be able to steer your present life on a truer course.  You can release negative energy patterns that have bound you to certain patterns that can cause emotional distress and even financial hardship.  By knowing what those patterns are and learning to release them you can live a happier more fulfilled life and clear negative karma.

Learn how to stop the cycle. Learn how to set your life on a truer path without the pitfalls you’ve come to think of as inevitable. You must first learn to meditate and ask for a messenger, helping to guide your way.

This might not come in the form of a person but could be anything that holds meaning for you and has a purpose. Open your mind and ask questions and see what turns up and record your experiences. You are speaking to your soul and higher self.

There are many different places on the Internet that can supply you with much better information than I am able to on how to go about reading your own Akashic Records but if you’ve read this far then you’ve made the first step and what’s clicking a link or two in the grand scheme of things and the enlightenment that awaits you?

You can schedule readings if you don’t have the time or inclination to put towards the end result but these aren’t cheap and I don’t believe as rewarding in the end.  After all, who will truly recognize what it is you’re seeking and why?

Here are a few links to get you started if you would like to know more about the Akashic Records and how to access them.
