Aligning the senses.....

As I become more and more up close and personal with my beloved Tansy, I find myself addressing all of the five senses as a natural course of being. I only became aware that I was doing this as I sat down to write this catch up post. 

I noted that my first action was to take a deep breathe and I found myself searching out her smell. Not too hard to find as I have her surrounding me at all times lately. I have been spraying the strong infusion I made around doors, drying flowers separately from leaves, planting her in pots. Standing amongst plants taller than myself, inhaling her scent at every turn.

I have even been carrying her around with me where-ever I might go.....

I have been touching and feeling the texture of her leaves, the softness of an open flower, the smoothness of a newly budded flower.  Taking deep breathes through this slowly drying pouch of flowers and one small leaf....keeping her near me at all times.......

 I have been listening very carefully to try and catch her song, noting that while I have been calling to "her" that I keep sensing a very strong male spirit? Is she in fact a he? Or maybe non gender specific at all?

And while others around here have on occasion have begun to complain about her presence and her smell, which is apparently a little over powering! I find myself becoming one with this beautiful plant, loving her smell, the shape of her leaves, the happy feeling I get when I hold her. Longing to taste her again, knowing somehow that it is not the right time.

I feel a little like I am floating in water, gently bobbing up and down as she invades me through each of my senses which I feel will only still once all have aligned and settled into complete knowing, a merging of our spirits.
