Magnolia’s special insights on “the Change” to see us through the Winter Holidays
Prepare to feel good about ageing, being freezing cold and stressed on the darkest day of the year
Usually at least a 20 week programme for Magnolia, but we have found that there is plenty to learn in a much shorter time about feeling our best for the festivities to spread good cheer across the Land.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER FOR GOOD NUTRIENT FLOW, ENERGY AND HAPPINESS
Magnolia appeared to be progressing well in its alien like embryonic, seedpod. But once considered to be the most promising, amongst seedheads, by 6th November, it had started to look a insular and very tired.
LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE OF REASON
It had stopped drinking enough water, which was not good for its energy in maintaining healthy cells. By early December, it had become very tired around the eyes, rather dehydrated and almost unrecognisable, barely a shadow of its former self.
It had stopped listening to its inner voice of reason. Unfortunately, it could not deal with gaining extra water weight and got more than a little depressed.
LOOK BACK WITH PEACE AND FORWARD WITH JOY
Although its seeds appear to be eye-popping, they did not mature as they should have. This once promising seed head stopped accessing nutrients. It had become slowly comatose and withered.
We found out through the branch network, that it had never really come to terms with petal loss, after being the prettiest blossom on the tree. It was very sad.
BUT no need for any of that to happen, we must remember to drink water, not regret and look forward!
TRY NOT TO OPEN YOUR GIFTS BEFORE YOU SHOULD
Even the most sensible seedheads can be absent-minded, some – even absinthe minded. Too curious to test the outer elements, many can forget that they can not close their pod doors once opened, the seeds will not have a chance to survive if not adequately prepared.
Whilst this could be a case of impatience and impulse, with Christmas spirit, we gently put this down to the common forgetfulness of this fascinating stage of life, in the ‘Magnopause’.
Thankfully not every pod does becomes depressed or forgetful, the happiest outcome is when a full flush of hormones can produce full heads of voluptuous seeds, and turn others.
DO NOT TRY AND TAKE ON TOO MUCH AT THIS TIME OF YEAR
Some seedheads go for two -in-the pod. At times, whilst cosy, it can be a little ambitious as this will take up a lot of energy, although a good backup for survival. To ensure the best quality seed, the outer wood of the pod needs to have a good opportunity to take its time and harden up.
Timing is everything. DO NOT MISS THE MOMENT TO PARTY!
At last when ready be ready to show your colours and enjoy the moment!
DON’T STAY OUT TOO LATE!
See how one seedpod thought it could disguise its actions by staying out late and making quite a mess of being tippy-top of its seed fall. Here it is, making its way like a cunning fox, walking along the branches and then freezes for the camera looking surprised and completely wrecked.
EMBRACE THE CHANGE
As you prepare your gifts well, the new growth as part of you. Youth is on your side as you prepare to spread the Land with your festive gifts. At Solstice you are integrated as future and past, forward and back
GIVING IS IN PERFECT BALANCE
Once you have mastered the workings as a seedpod, on your own, you will be in balance, Perfectly prepared and perfectly poised to give.
Whoever you are and wherever you are.
