VERBENA BONARIENSIS Verbena bonariensis
This is a dramatic yet sweet lavender Flower composed in delicate clusters on very tall stalks. In the garden, the Flower both harmonizes with all other Flowers but also feels set apart. Its Flower Essence works on this strength helping us be both connected yet appropriately detached. Verbena Bonariensis supports us to experience equanimity and good boundaries, even after significant enmeshment. It helps us to find a space of forgiveness for all involved in any drama without getting pulled back into any inappropriate dynamic. It helps us stay in a place of loving detachment, helping us define a landscape of evolving harmony different than the terrain that went before. This is incredibly important right now because we can sometimes do the work to heal and move on then fall back into the same dynamic out of a sense of guilt or over-responsibility. This one helps us let go for good.
I AM forgiveness with detachment.
“I’m afraid I’ve become attached to Verbena Bonariensis. When I tried my first few drops, I started crying, you know, like when someone comes over & gives you a big hug, because they know- Going with me everywhere.” K.S., NYC. NY
“I laughed and cried reading about Verbena Bonariensis because what else have I had in my garden in the past 5 years? Even my co-creative garden was taken over by it this year and I just let it be due to circumstances here. But it was probably the right decision.” T.R., MD
