I have always admired the Rose. Not only because the more you chop it down the greater and better it comes back, but, like a woman it gives beauty and pleasure but if handled badly will harm you. The scent of the Rose actually initiates the Pineal Gland which increases our capacity to communicate with our Higher Self or the God force. This is where essential oils can be beneficial. It is the emblem of Mary Magdalene and used by many different spiritual societies as their emblem. So picture yourself as the rose and no matter how many times you have been cut down-you are going to come back and be stronger.
