Alchemy Flower Oracle ~ Messages from Flowers

CA$ 5,295

82

As I’ve worked with the flowers, from choosing the seeds to germinating them and tending them, transplanting them and caring for them, I’ve worked with their energy. Each flower species feels different, they each carry a deep and ancient energy that manifests as flowers. Like us they are made of stardust and dinosaur bones, of incantations, breath of our Ancestors, that have travelled the Earth for eons. They are sacred beings, part of the circle of life that we all belong to.

ABOUT THE DECK  The Alchemy Flower Oracle creates connections between the world of flowers and the messages they carry. This Oracle is meant to be used as a way to begin communicating with the natural world and flowers that carry messages that your intuition can interpret and understand. The cards are a healing tool to help you explore your connections to yourself and the world around you. 

Each card includes the common and Latin/scientific name and a phrase or 1 to 2 word meaning that along with the imagery gives you various ways to access your own intuition.  

THE GUIDEBOOK

The guidebook includes directions on using the Oracle and also gives deeper meanings for each flower card. Each card includes the traditional uses and meanings for each flower, as well as messages from each flower received during deep meditations. The digital guidebook can be viewed as an eBook or print for on the go. The guidebook includes links to guided meditations, journal prompts, exercises, downloadable artwork and more.

HOW TO USE AN ORACLE

Oracle cards are a quick and easy way to access your own intuition. There are people who pull a card every morning to set intentions for the day, while others use them to receive guidance and help with challenges or issues. Pulling a card and using it as a writing or journaling prompt is a great way to connect to your intuition and do some guided writing. There is no right, or wrong way to use an oracle deck. Over time your deck will become attuned to your energy, especially if you work with it on a regular basis. Yes! It's okay to give an oracle deck as a gift!

THE ARTWORK

I am a visual artist, photographer and a professional graphic designer as well as flower farmer, healer, teacher and writer. All of my skills have come together to create the Alchemy Flower Oracle. The artwork for each card begins with flowers I planted, grew and then photographed as they bloomed. (We grow over 200 types of flowers - it was challenging only choosing 48 of them!) These photographs are the beginning of the digital artwork for each of the cards. The artwork for the deck was created over two years.

ABOUT ME

I'm an environmental artist. My work is about reconnecting people back to nature. I work with deep intuition and dreams. For years I bought fresh flowers every week - until I found out that they were being grown tens of thousands of miles from me. In 2015 my husband and I bought a run down 10 acre farm and began to create Alchemy Farm - a place of transformation. I've been growing flowers, food for pollinators and soul food for humans, ever since. The Alchemy Flower Oracle comes from my direct experiences working with flowers. I believe that we are all deeply intuitive and can access unseen information through tools like Oracles.

Risks and challenges

This is the second oracle deck I've created, so there's really no risk involved. The artwork for the cards has been completed over the last year and the guidebook is nearing completion. My projected mailing date, to you, will be December 2018. The Oracle may not reach you in time for Christmas. If you are giving the Oracle as a gift, I will email you a gift certificate PDF that you can give - so that your person knows that there is a gift coming for them in the mail.

    Group Flower Workshop at Alchemy Farm

    Group flower workshops can range from: mason jar posies to vase arrangements to hand-tied bouquets in the spring/summer/autumn, and wreath making or festive centrepieces in the winter. We also offer a variety of seasonal gardening/growing workshops through the year.

    Spend a leisurely 2.5 hours, with Ingrid at Alchemy Farm. We begin with a private farm tour, that includes growing and harvesting tips and end up in the Studio where Ingrid will lead a demo. You'll then get to wander through the gardens, harvesting your own flowers - or foraging winter greens, seeds and berries - to work with in the Studio. Ingrid will be available to guide you and answer questions as you create your own flower piece. All supplies, refreshments and snacks are included. 

    You will receive a PDF gift certificate to use for yourself or a friend, which allows you to book a spot in a regularly scheduled flower workshop.
