I am a bit of a kid in a candy store when I travel, getting to look at all the local flora. You can often tell what's going on in the spiritual climate of an area, by what is on the land. I particularly like looking at the invasive species lists. The flowers that grow in an area are often a mirror of the oppression that the people in an area face.
This year, I've been out to California and Coastal Washington, where they have Scotch Broom like crazy. What's interesting about Scotch Broom, is that it was imported to "stabilize the land." When they created roads, they planted it along the sides because its root system would hold the hillside in place, but it spread and is a really big tough weed now. But the thing about Scotch Broom is that it fights that doom and gloom mindset, particularly as it relates to world events. There has been a lot said, both on the science side, as well as the prophetic side regarding the West coast, earthquakes, devastation and predicting the entire coastal area will wind up in the sea. Scotch Broom as a flower essence heals the mindset of the doomsayers, those with a negative world outlook, those who watch too much news, by restoring positivity.
Obviously God's heart is not to sink the west coast and kill millions of people. We want to be careful what we come into agreement with because that can influence our reality. Scotch Broom may be there to uplift the people in that area and keep that doom mentality in check. I'm not saying it's coming from the people who choose to live there, as much as from those who don't. In doing so, it may be "stabilizing the land" in the spiritual context, by putting out positivity, faith and optimism to those who are there. In other words, acting as a sunny inoculation against that kind of negative thinking.
I don't mean to have a completely Pollyanna mindset toward the reality of fault lines and seismic activity, just that there should be balance. Prudence and emergency planning has a place, but there are personalities that have a morbid attraction toward apocalyptic events. We need to have optimism and hope, not despair over things we cannot control. Get a hold of some Scotch Broom essence and let it's golden light transform your world view.
