Our first event is something that is very dear to my heart - loving parenting. We have asked Justin Crick to come and share with us his experience with parenting his two boys, 6 & 8. Justin will be here on Sunday 8th December from 10am to 3pm. This will be followed by Communication with Spirit with Natalie Mann, sharing the nuts and bolts of mediumship. This workshop will be on Saturday 14th December. Check out our events on our new facebook page https://www.facebook.com/onegardenfoundation?ref=hl. I will be talking more extensively about our centre in our next issue.
Today I have the joy of introducing Daniela Kudo, our new One Garden "Caretaker".
THE GIFTS ON MY JOURNEY WITH ONE GARDEN
As a new caretaker for One Garden, I feel it’s part of my journey to write about myself. I’m nervous, so here I go…
First I better start by introducing myself. I’m Daniela Kudo and I’m from São Paulo, a big city in Brazil. I have been in Australia for about 9 years and married to a great Japanese guy who I met when I first came to Australia and I ‘m a mum of a beautiful 17 months old boy.
On my journey, since very little, I was in search for truth and for something “different”. Luckily, my family on my mum’s side has a very high inclination for Spirituality, however my father’s side is still very close-minded, and they are Catholic. As a child it was normal, although a bit frightening, to talk to a spirit through a medium and I used to read lots of books on spirituality. I always looked up to my Godmother who had lots of interest in this kind of stuff. By the age of 19, I was a Reiki Practitioner and I also took a Mediumship workshop that I enjoyed very much and it taught me heaps. I became a Reiki Master and into all the New Age things but something wasn’t right in my heart. I felt there must be something more real out there.
God heard my prayers and desires. One Garden came into my life at a time when I was really searching for more truth and also something that I loved to do; something different that wasn’t anywhere in the world. In my heart I was searching for a real connection and a certain innovation that would be appropriate for the Earth-times that I believe humanity is going through. I could definitely feel all of this with One Garden.
In my first One Garden workshop I was fascinated with what I was learning. My mother always loved flowers so we always had them around, but I never thought about the messages and feelings that flowers have until that workshop and that I was able to feel this too.
Even though I was really enjoying this new experience, there was an emotion present – an emotion that I knew very well because it was often present in my life. And I didn’t like that feeling! It was an emotion of being small and insignificant, I just wanted to be someone different than myself, be more than I was.
On the second day of the workshop we birthed a new essence called Divine Humility. Something absolutely amazing happened that day. We were in the middle of the rainforest and it was pouring rain. We were walking around admiring this very small, delicate and beautiful flower which was everywhere on the ground. Christiana announced we were going to make an essence with that flower. We were going to birth Divine Humility. It is indescribable what I felt at that moment. I was so happy and so grateful for being there. It was overwhelming. There was all this love flowing. I felt a huge connection, that this was my place and yes… I would love to be involved and more importantly, this was God’s Truth that I did deserve all this to happen. That was my first gift.
Divine Humility explained exactly what I was feeling and during the workshop I learned that this is what happens when we birth an essence. My emotions contributed to creating that essence. This was the healing that I needed so much. The feeling of being small just like that little flower but on the contrary, I didn’t feel beautiful or had any significance. Some of the flowers were looking down the same as myself. They were very hard to photograph, like myself, not wanting to be seen. They showed me the truth that I didn’t need to look down on myself. I now acknowledge the beauty of my soul. No more and no less than who I am.
Of course after that amazing gift from God, connecting with One Garden, connecting with my heart to this loving couple, Christiana and Graeme, I decided that I wanted to be a One Garden Practitioner. I bought the whole stock kit and started to feel, to learn and to use all the essences.
As I was experiencing and getting to know more about One Garden Essences I was falling in love with them. They opened up my soul to truth and to love. I started to connect more with God, to understand more about the human soul and the spirit world. I find I’m still discovering the truth my heart is craving for, the Truth from God.
One of the truths I have received from God is that One Garden Divine Nature and Flower Essences are a gift from God to all of us. A gift through nature which is available to anyone who is ready to take the journey to find our true potential, our passions, desires, and talents. Opening our soul to love, truth and God. Healing our injuries, learning how to feel and become more real.
I am very grateful for the opportunity of becoming a One Garden Caretaker, assisting others on this beautiful journey; sharing this amazing gift and the messages of love and truth.
My journey, my healing, my discoveries and my growth are still taking place and will continue to unfold. It is very exciting.
There are many other experiences that I would love to share with you but I will leave that to another time. And instead of you simply reading this post on the blog maybe one day I will write a whole book.
Many thanks to all of you who have stayed with me on this journey. May your soul also be blessed with beautiful gifts.
Thank you Dani. Dani has much to bring to One Garden and as her role unfolds, we will share this with you. Oh so much to look forward to.
