Receive before you give.

It's hard to believe that it is December already, the last month of 2023. Holiday season is upon us no matter what we celebrate.

The Nature Angels have chosen this beautiful red hibiscus flower for their message this week.

I do love hibiscus. I may have said this already. They cannot survive the cold weather where I live but they grow abundantly in the south, in Florida as well as on all of the different Caribbean islands.

I took this flower photo in Greece on the portrait mode setting of the camera. This gives it a very soft background that can almost look dream-like.

This is what the Nature Angels have to say about this beautiful flower.

Hello most beautiful and loving human beings,

We did choose this flower because of the softness of the image. We ask that you be gentle with yourself this month. Let the image of this flower help you to be very kind to yourself.

We ask you to take care of yourself before you take care of anyone else. When you look at these flower photos, you are actually connecting with the Deva Angel of the flower species. There is so much energy held within these images.

In this photo image, you have the green of Mother Earth to ground you; the blueness of the sky to fill you with your truth and the red hibiscus flower to bring you the Divine Mother's love. Look at this photo image and receive. Let your mind go completely blank.

The mind always feels that it has to do something or take care of something. Let your mind take a short vacation with this image.

We are not going to have you say anything with this flower image. We want you just to gaze at it for a few minutes.

When you feel like life is becoming too hectic, come back to this flower photo. It will both ground you and fill your heart with the energy of the love from the Divine. Receive this. It will be the best gift you can give yourself this month.


Wow! What a beautiful message about receiving in this month of gift giving. If you feel energy, you may actually feel love expanding in your heart.

The Nature Angels do tell us how much we should engage all of our 5 physical senses as often as possible. We are physical beings, but we are also energetic beings residing in this human body.

Let your imagination expand. Imagine as you look at this flower that you can feel the sun shining on you. Feel a gentle breeze. Smell a beautiful fragrance. Listen to the sound of a nearby bird. Open yourself to the possibilities.

The Nature Angels are very playful and would like to remind us to play. Let your inner child experience the magic of the holidays. Do something just for your inner child. It could be something as simple as listening to holiday songs that you loved in your childhood.

Sing along to them, even if you think you don't have a great singing voice. If you do have a beautiful voice, sing it so other people can hear you too. Use your gifts.

The season of gift giving is also about you expanding your own gifts that you came into this world with.

You are unique and special. Value yourself. You are a gift.

The Nature Angels may have had you not say anything as you looked at the flower photo, but I will ask you to say,

I have a unique gift to bring to this world. When I offer this gift, I create a shift in myself and a shift on this planet. I share my gifts with an open heart.

I am sharing one more photo of a statue I took on the street of Kos, a beautiful golden Angel statue.

I am here for anyone who feels that they are struggling this time of year. Sometimes things seem so hard but when you can connect with your Angels and Guides, you can get a new understanding, a new level of support. This leads to a new acceptance, a new allowing. Please reach out to me if you think you need some help with this.
