Visitors to the June meeting of Crewkerne AWareness brought with them a colourful array of garden and wild flowers, which included roses, carnations, pansies, violets, periwinkles and daisies. Guest speaker Nicole-Caroline Dyke from Yeovil, who is a psychic medium and a consultant for Bach flower remedies, interpreted the meanings behind everyone’s personal choice of flower. Nicole explained that the colour of the petals,and condition of the leaf foliage and stem, all link to different periods in our lives, beginning with our birth at the root and our growth upwards through the years.
A hole in a leaf can often signify a time of trauma or stress in our lives while new buds and shoots signify over-coming obstacles and moving forward. The meaning of flowers and their poetic language has come down through the ages and can be traced back to ancient times. The service of reading flowers is known as florigraphy and is once again proving to be a fascinating subject of interest. Crewkerne AWareness meets on the third Monday evening of every month in the Unitarian Chapel hall in Hermitage Street. The next meeting of the group will take place on Monday July 17th at 7 pm, when the topic will be psychometry with Nicky Gard from Tiverton.
