Hildegard of Bingen

Color of the day: Yellow
Incense of the day: Lavender

Hildegard of Bingen was an extraordinary woman of the twelfth century. She was a nun in Germany, a visionary, mystic, composer, poet, healer, and an herbalist. She was well-traveled and highly regarded by those in power during her time. Consider her words and meditate on them.

I, the fiery life of divine wisdom, I ignite the beauty of the plains.
I sparkle the waters, I burn in the Sun, and the Moon, and the stars.
I am the breeze that nurtures all things green.
I encourage blossoms to flourish with ripening fruits.
I am led by the spirit to feed the purest stream.
I am the rain coming from the dew that causes the grasses to laugh with the joy of life.
