Observe a Rose and Reveal Your True Beauty

In the previous post, the first word in our rose word association list was Observe.

Have you ever really observed a rose – truly examined one – petal by petal, stem, thorns and all? Try it some time and you will be amazed at what you'll find.

Do this in a garden, if you can. Otherwise, find a rose that you really feel drawn to at the nearest nursery, florist or even a health food store.

First of all, get caught up in the rose. Take in every detail: colors, size, swirling petals, subtle or overwhelming scents, textures - you get the picture. Once you do this, you'll begin to realize the true beauty inherent in the flower.

While I was living in Arizona, I was blessed to help out in a garden of 300 organic roses. Between fertilizing, watering and pruning, I'd sometimes sit down and just enjoy the garden. My senses would take in the array of colors, smells of the earth and buzzing of bees all around me.

As one who had begun to work with the essence of rose, I was astonished to realize that a rose can represent both the inner and outer beauty of a person. No matter what your station in life, you are a beautiful spirit. Like a rose, your heart can blossom, bloom and fill the world with fragrance in spite of the thorns of life!

So, what does this have to do with having healthy skin and hair and a beautiful life with roses?

Realizing your inner beauty first makes your outer beauty naturally come forth. The rest is 'dew on the rose'.
