Female Cottonwood Trees

Female Cottonwood TreeWhenever I exhibit at various conferences/events/shows, one of the fun things is to visit the other exhibit tables. I usually do this while the conference attendees are in session.

Recently, I was exhibiting at the Healing Beyond Borders conference and one of the other vendors was American Holistic Nurses Association. On their table, they had little, approximately three inch branches of female cottonwood trees. Only in the female (not the male) cottonwood tree, the center of the branch is a star (see photo).

Isn’t this interesting?! Don’t you love nature?! I sure do! And it is a great example of the Divine Feminine found in nature and speaking to all of us.

Time for Rejuvenation…

For several years, I’ve had on my “bucket list” to see the Sandhill cranes … and it finally became a reality this year!

These amazing, beautiful birds migrate from Mexico and stop along the Platte River near Kearney, Nebraska to re-fuel (eat corn and get water) and rest for approximately six weeks before beginning to fly to Canada and Alaska for their final northern destination.

Luckily, I have a dear Aunt who lives in the area where they land and rejuvenate. I picked up another Aunt in Omaha and we made the trek together. It was so much fun! And it reminded me that women who are doing healing work need to take time out to explore nature, get rejuvenated and connect with family members who are near and dear to us. All of this is very important self-care. Are you taking time to rejuvenate?
