Four Leaf Clover

From a symbolic point of view, there is an ancient legend that gives a spiritual meaning to the four-leaf clover.

According to this mystical story, the four-leaf clover was a plant that grew in abundance in Paradise where Adam and Eve lived. After being banished from Eden, Eve took a small clover with 4 petals, to help her reveal before her eyes, invisible demons, evil beings that otherwise she was not able to see.

This clover gave her protection and a blessing when facing the terrors of the world. Later in Celtic myth it was given the symbolism  of nature and a  blessing of love and prosperity.

A note from the author, the custodian of Goffin Lands:
The 21st Century has an abundance of terror and some spiritual enlightenment could give us a helping hand. I’ve yet to discover a four leaf clover.  However the intention is to keep questioning how I can nurture the potential that exists with the Goffin Lands for some of the ancient myths to have Earthly reality.

In the spirit of hope for a brighter future   ...  John Yates

The ancient myths - each clover leaf symbolizes some special meaning

* The first is for hope:
Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.

* The second is for faith:
With out confidence and trust in our journey there is no hope.

* The third is for love:
A flower doesn’t blossom without sunshine and humans will not bloom without love.

* The fourth is for luck:
Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.
