EYES OF MARY Myosostis scorpiodes
Love with detachment is the vibration of this Flower Essence. I’ve had a difficult time understanding this phrase. The Angels tell me love with detachment is not indifference nor is it squeamishness about suffering. It is a balanced vibration of knowing that the circumstances of our lives, even when painful, perfectly support us. It is heartfelt understanding that daily life is a holographic classroom where, slowly but surely, each of us rediscover the only reality that ever was or will be: God. Love with detachment is a vibration that helps us respond lovingly to those who are suffering without a desire to fix things for them.
One gift of Eyes of Mary's vibration of love is the gift of perspective. When I imagine Angels looking at us, I imagine them looking at us from above with a whole landscape stretched out before us. I do not think this is literally true, but there is truth in it. The Angels do see our lives in an overview. They know that a bump in the road that we think may kill us is not an end or even an insurmountable obstacle, because they see us farther down the road too. This is the kind of faith and perspective we need to cultivate and that Eyes of Mary helps us cultivate.
Eyes of Mary helps us put on the love glasses so no matter what we are looking at, we see the divinity in it. Eyes of Mary reminds us not to identify with what seems to be happening around us, but to look beneath events for the subtext. It encourages us to see beyond the hologram to the only true reality, God's loving presence in all of us and in all things. Furthermore, it reminds us to respond to all events with greater tolerance for ourselves and everyone else. If only love is real, why invest in anything else?
Eyes of Mary will help us do as our hearts guide us even when parts of our personality believe this guidance cruel. Eyes of Mary helps us when tough love is the order of the day, because it helps us know that letting a person experience the consequences of his or her behavior in Earth classroom will be the best way for this person to learn the lessons that he wants to learn.
This is an Essence I reach for when I am having a hard time with my heartfelt guidance to do nothing but just send love. I came into this life with a lot of “fix it” ideas, and Eyes of Mary has helped me to see the whole picture differently. When my old idea that I am responsible for making everyone happy rears its head, when I feel restless even guilty about loving AND letting go, when I cannot see beyond the pain of a certain predicament to its potential spiritual gifts or when, in anyway, I have lost my sense of humor and need to lighten up and reframe my understanding of events, this is the Essence I reach for.
On a final note, Eyes of Mary also offers support for memory issues. While we chose to give this Flower its French name of Eyes of Mary, the common name in this country is Forget-Me-Not. Enough said!
I AM the clear view of the reality behind all illusion.

“I wanted to share an anecdote that clearly shows how Eyes of Mary helped me. There is a touch of salty language, but I hope it is not offensive…Shortly after I got Eyes of Mary, I was going to visit a friend of mine and driving down the interstate. I had forgotten and left at peak rush hour, so traffic was heavy and annoying. I got so frustrated at one point that I shouted at the slow drivers in front of me something that included the phrase “you asswipes!” Immediately, my next thought was how wonderful it is to have something to wipe my bottom with and how much more unpleasant life would be if I didn’t. I laughed out loud at that, relaxed and continued on my way with a whole new appreciation for the overlooked conveniences of life and people who annoy me.” L.A., Mebane NC
