(Medium: Colored Pencil.)
Unleash your magic.
Radiate power and potency.
From one seed, a thousand.
A vibrant sunflower lies on a weathered table. One of the leaves gestures toward the sky, the other toward the ground. Black seeds form a lemniscate above the flower. Casting charms are tossed onto the table revealing the tools of the herbcrafter: boline, mortar and pestle, kettle, and basket.
The power of manifestation lives within. All the information necessary to create life is contained in the seed; yet it is the elements that make the sunflower grow. Wind strengthens the stalk; water feeds the plant; fire is converted to energy by the leaves; earth anchors the root. Nourish your ideas with the elements and watch them bloom into being. Receive divine light from the unseen realms, shape it into form, then give it all away. Sunflower roots travel for miles underground bringing nutrients to the flower. When it matures, the flower head bends to the earth and unleashes thousands of seeds. Be a conduit of transformation for others.
