Diving into the Taiwan Flower Essences

IMG_4865 (1)

The electrical energies on the planet continue to rise, requiring our individual circuit boards to align with this higher vibrational rate. Flowers from all over the Earth are clamoring to assist us in keeping up with the necessary electrical shifts.

Flower Essences are one way Flowers help us even when we cannot visit with the Flowers in person. Here at the farm we are welcoming in Flower Essences from all over the world as fast as we can build shelving!

Sometimes faster!

Most recently we welcomed the arrival of forty five astounding new Flower Essence friends from Taiwan, brought to us by GHF beloved Sarah Porter.

IMG_5145

How could it be that we had hardly shelved the new Flower Essences from December’s trip to St John and these new Flower Essences from Taiwan were here, asking to be known and shared?

When I asked the Angels and Elementals about the why of all these new arrivals, they told me that so much is happening electrically on the planet right now that humanity needs to have the assistance of all these grounded, wise Flowers ASAP.

IMG_5103

This planetary vibrational shift calls us from an experience of self as limited to our own physical being to an expanded experience of self that encompasses the entire globe and beyond.

This means Flower Essences from around the world are appropriate tools for shifting from this limited definition of self to an unlimited one.

As we experience the wisdom of Flowers from all over Earth, we experience a planetary wisdom of wholeness. We own unrecognized parts of ourselves and move towards a felt experience of inclusive planetary oneness.

IMG_4695

As far as these lovely new Taiwan Essences, they come from a country whose people have gone through tumultuous changes in identity, a people in flux about who they are and how they fit into the world. They are supported in this search by their Flowers. In the wild mountains of Taiwan, the Flowers exist in a state of certainty about who they are and how they are part of the whole. They know this balance of being unique and knowing wholeness. And now these Flowers come to help all of us.

IMG_5110

In addition, for those of us in the western and northern hemispheres of our planet, it’s helpful to experience the wisdom of Taiwanese Flowers as they are from the southern and eastern hemispheres. They offer us a planetary wisdom far from that of our own backyard. This helps move us towards an embodied experience that we are not separate from anything on Earth; we are all one.

IMG_4560

I know some consider me a naïve Pollyanna/Mollyanna when I stand in my conviction that these planetary energy changes are taking us towards a golden age, but I do not waiver in this belief. For each of us this planetary shift is an inner shift from limited self to boundless self-identity. When we put these individual shifts together into a collective shift, it will naturally transform all external behavior from selfish to selfless and will bring healing and wholeness to Earth and all humanity.

IMG_4573

The leg work of getting these new Flower Essences ready for you is underway. While Sarah was in Taiwan, I poured through all my books about tropical flora to identify the new St John beloveds. In particular, I leaned on the New York Botanical Garden’s Flora of St John.

IMG_3039

After finding the latin names for the new Flower Essences from St John, I began to listen for their own descriptions of themselves and their gifts. Their communications AND THEIR ACTUAL VIBRATIONS are much more important than latin names in terms of helping us. However the latin names keep everything straight so I can share with you which Flower is offering what expertise.

IMG_2493 (1)

Now I am on the adventure of a lifetime as I get to know this astounding group of Flower Essences Sarah has brought us from Taiwan. I have been on a hunt for their latin names with some of my very peculiar books.

IMG_3037

More importantly I have begun to listen and learn from each Flower the specifics of their gifts of wisdom and embodied divinity.

Taiwan was not a place I thought about much before Sarah’s trip. Our blue bottles come from Taiwan so I thought a little bit about this far off place but not really. In my mind’s eye I incorrectly imagined a mostly industrial island covered in concrete and good eats.

IMG_4656

When Sarah left for her month in Taiwan, I asked her to see what Flowers were calling to come to Green Hope Farm but I didn’t imagine the response she would receive.

Life is rich with the most unexpected gifts and the Flowers of Taiwan are up there for me as particular blessings. What I am learning is that Taiwan is a special place for Flowers.

IMG_5028

These Essences from Taiwan have opened an enormous doorway here at the farm. I am captivated by what I am learning about the wild mountains of Taiwan, its Flowers and a people deeply enamored of their Flowers. I seek a Flower vocabulary I do not have as many of the Flowers that called to Sarah do not resemble anything I have ever seen.

With every Flower book I have piled around me, I search for names. Sometimes when I seek to identify a plant, I recognize the family of plants or a Flower bearing a resemblance to a Flower I already know and love. This whisper of recognition helped me with about half of the Flower Essences from Taiwan. Then I found myself deep in unknown territory.

IMG_3049

How I wish I could read Chinese! How very glad I am that Sarah can!

There is a grace in all this that takes us well beyond my enormous pile of strange and wonderful books for plant identification. If I fail to identify these Flowers, all is not lost. Flowers offer their gifts to us via their Flower Essences NO WORDS NECESSARY!

Whether I can slot these Flowers into humanity’s latin name data base or not, these Flowers want to share themselves fully! Generous Nature has long grounded, healed and restored us. Now the charge among the Flowers is to help us evolve as swiftly as possible.

As humanity moves towards conscious oneness, the Flowers show us the way. Unique in their strength and beauty, they operate from a place of collective consciousness.

When I first started to make Flower Essences almost thirty years ago, I was never quite sure if the Flowers knew what I was talking about when I asked their permission to co-create a Flower Essence together. Now when I meet a Flower we are mid conversation. Energies of love sweep into my heart from the Flowers. They are so present to help and support us all. All we need to do is accept and welcome their love as they show us the way to understand ourselves as one with our whole planet.

Hopefully later this week I will begin to post info on all these new beloveds! In the meantime I hope you enjoyed these silly photos from the books I look to for latin names!

A Report from St. John

It’s snowing here at the farm. Our December trip to St John feels like it was a long time ago in a place far away. However, I want to share with you some of my lovely experiences with the Flowers of St John.

St John, USVI and the Caribbean in general went through an extreme drought beginning in the spring and lingering into the fall. When we arrived, rain had finally returned, and there were many storms, quick and intense, while we were on the island.

IMG_2903

The arrival of rain after the drought meant many plants were blooming out of season. This meant I got to meet with a number of Flowers I had never seen in my many other trips to St John. All of my other trips have happened in the months of December, January and February so I have always missed Flowers that bloom at other times of the year.

Not only had the rain rejuvenated the vegetation on the island into a state of joyous self-expression, but all life was celebrating. There were many more Flowers everywhere AND butterflies covered the island in veritable clouds of soft white. I had never seen anything like it. Everywhere we walked, butterflies rose up all around us. It was a glimpse of what the world might be like without pesticides.

IMG_2118 (1)

Sometimes I have found the Nature Spirits/Elementals of a place to be either reticent or in a place of withdrawal from humankind. On this trip to St John, the Nature Spirits were extremely extroverted, loving and helpful. To pause next to any plant was to visit with a dear friend.

As I walked the island trails, Nature Spirits greeted me with great waves of love. They helped me find Flowers I was seeking with panache and humor. I had not been to St John in five years so being greeted by old and new Flower Elemental friends was very precious.

IMG_2168

I particularly needed the Elementals help to find Flowers because one of the places where I met many Flowers over the years is no longer open to visitors. The Maho Bay campground where we always stayed is no longer. I knew every inch of that property’s vegetation and knew where I could find many Flower friends, but the property has passed into private ownership. We found it gated and guarded by dogs and cameras. I could only blow a kiss to the precious Jerusalem Thorn Tree I knew and loved and many other Flower friends found previously in Maho scrubland.

One Flower I knew it was vital for me to find in a new place was Christmas Bush (Chromolaena odorata). This is a key ingredient in our Wound Healing mix and a deeply important Essence for wound healing in its own right. I was grievously low on this Flower Essence but also knew I had always made this Essence from a patch of Christmas Bush at Maho.

Driving with me anywhere is somewhat of a slow boat as I am always asking people to go slowly and often asking them to stop the car so I can go examine a Flower. This is never more true than on St John. So many important Flowers grow on the side of roads, and I am always looking for them there.

I went on every last car mission because the up and down journeys over the mountainous terrain gave me much scrubby bush in which to search for Flowers.

One day descending on the switchbacks into Coral Bay, I caught a glimpse of white, the color of Christmas Bush Flower. It was a very quick glimpse, but I felt it was Christmas Bush. Every time we went up or down that road I would look for that patch. Each trip I tried to count the curves to see how far down the road I would need to walk to see if this flash of white was indeed what I thought it was. While my husband, St Jim, was happy to stop the car on most roads, this was one steep decline where it was just too dangerous to linger because of speeding vehicles climbing and descending the treacherous mountainside road.

This cluster of Christmas Bush began to send me a big wave of love when we passed them in the car. I would literally feel this love blow into my heart and fill it with joy. On our last day on the island, Jim and I parked at the top of the road and walked down to the cluster of Christmas Bush. In true St John style a number of people stopped to see if we needed a lift but no, we were just taking a dangerous stroll down this narrow road. When I got to the patch it was a sweet reunion. I asked who wanted to be made into an Essence and a number of blossoming heads volunteered.

IMG_2807

Will’s girlfriend and GHF staff goddess Sarah Porter went on many Flower missions with me. She had a marvelous knack of noticing when the Flower Elementals were trying to get her attention. At one point, I was examining a lovely clump of Inkberry (Scaevola plumieri), and she looked up to see a blossoming Bay Cedar (Suriana maritima) right above the Inkberry. I had looked for Bay Cedar in its old haunts where it wasn’t in bloom, so I was very happy Sarah had heard it call from a new place.

IMG_2844

At another moment, while I looked at the very interesting black blossoms of the Pipe Organ cactus (Pilosocereus royenii), Sarah noticed Psychilis macconnelliae (Psychilis macconnelliae) right below and behind the cactus. Here she is visiting with this gorgeous orchid friend.

IMG_2382 (2)

At another moment, I was waxing on about my endless search to find Tamarind blossoms while lingering under the branches of an old Tamarind tree. There is a beautiful old Tamarind edging one of the gorgeous beaches on the island, and I have always visited the tree but never noticed any blossoms. Sarah, of course, found blossoms! As I met the Flowers for the first time after a twenty five year search for her blossoms, it was a wonderful moment. The Flowers are so lovely and unusual reflecting the wise, steadfast, steady and generous nature of the tree itself.

Tamarind has been one of the new ones that the Angels have requested we send to people this January even as I had not yet found out what the Flower Essence is for! Yesterday I got the beginning of a description that I share here. The photos I took do not do justice to this Tree, her Flowers or her Essence. Maybe someday I will get a chance to do better.

Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) Helps us stay grounded and rooted to the eternal verities during times of intense emotion and chaos. Helps us find stability, balance serenity and calm even as things explode, hurriance emotions and rage and it appears all is lost. I AM serenity.

Why Our Flower Essence Combinations Have so Many Flower Essences in Them

I recently read a study in which people who stopped to smell the Flowers were discovered to be happier than those who didn’t. This makes complete sense to me. Wandering amongst Flowers is one way to experience the vibration of Flowers. These vibrations are positive ones. They encourage our electrical systems towards greater health, well-being and happiness. They help calm our overwrought electrical systems that face so much dissonance each day.

100_3941

Flower Essences are another way we can receive the healing vibrations of the Flowers even when there is no garden of Flowers nearby.

Which brings me to the topic of today’s blog. It’s that old chestnut, “Why do Green Hope Farm Flower Essences have so many Flower Essences in them when Dr. Bach said to only use a couple Flower Essences at once?”

Let’s consider for a moment the world in which Dr. Bach created his body of work about Flower Essences.

What were the noises in his 1930’s country neighborhood? In his Oxfordshire office in Brighwell-cum-Sotwell perhaps he heard the ticking of a clock, the cough of his receptionist or the murmur of a patient in the waiting room. It was very quiet. The airwaves around his desk were not filled with complex man made waves of information. The world outside his office was also still. If he opened a window to the surrounding countryside he heard the sound of wind in the trees, rooks cawing, and during the gardening season, the sound of songbirds and insects. There was the occasional noise of a car or tractor. Into this quiet world, a few Flower Essences would be very balancing.

Compare this with the noises you hear right now. And what we hear doesn’t begin to encompass the dissonance we are dealing with.

I believe one of the real challenges for all of us is the immense dissonance we live in. This is so very different than Dr. Bach’s world. I am concerned about too much dissonance not too much healing information from too many Flowers.

IMG_3558

Even here at very rural Green Hope Farm there is always background noise both of the obvious kind and the modern device kind. We all live in a much more complicated vibrational soup of noise and dissonance than dear Dr. Bach. Our electrical systems are under greater duress than ever before.

So I have followed my guidance without hesitation to create Flower Essence blends that offer the wisdom of many Flowers to ease and heal us with the very complex situations we are dealing with.

A single Flower and its Essence spoke volumes in Dr. Bach’s world. And I know a single Flower Essence can STILL be transformative for each of us. My life has been blessed with many experiences of a single Flower Essence making an immense difference in my life.

IMG_5662

However we are also in untold situations where we do not even know what we are dealing with vibrationally or how to deal with it, where the vibrational knots are complex and many Flower Essences can help to unknot us.

This is where I am so grateful for the guiding wisdom I receive. When I go to make a Flower Essence combination, I meet with the Angels. As the architects of all form, they know just how to design the best combination Flower Essence mixes possible. Sometimes the focus of a mix comes from your suggestions and requests, and sometimes the Angels tell us it is needed. But always, I sit with the Angels to assemble the ingredient list.

Sometimes this takes a long time. I will receive a list of Flower Essence ingredients from the Angels but will know I am missing something. Sometimes I need to make other Essences or must pour over our additional Essences to find the Flower Essences that will complete the combination mix. It is like a treasure hunt that I continue until I am told the combination remedy is complete and balanced.

IMG_5415

Together these Flower Essences create a harmonious melody singing a specific healing song in unity. Each Flower Essence contributes from a place of oneness. Individual Flower Essences never pull us in different conflicting directions.

The mixes are like an orchestra playing for us in perfect unison and harmony. A violin solo can be right for one experience of healing while sometimes we need a piece of music in which all the instruments play. Flower Essences are music too. Sometimes we need one beautiful note from one beloved Flower, and sometimes we need the music created with many different Flowers making their music.

I am grateful for the Angels creating these musical combinations. I am grateful that they make it clear to me when a Flower Essence combination is just as it should be, with the Flower Essence ingredients it needs.

Another almost literal analogy for a Flower Essence versus a Flower Essence combination remedy is to consider the experience of visiting with a single Flower as compared to spending time in a garden of many Flowers.

IMG_6004

Let me give you a few examples of the creation process for a combination remedy. This fall we introduced a mix called Wound Healing. We made it at the behest of one of you dear people. Once it was made, I felt it was something long overdue. However the Angels said it took this long to create because we needed to make all the specific Essences so that the music of the combination was just right. There were many Flower Essence missions and many Flower Essences made so this mix could be the most exquisite wound healing music for our electrical systems. The many Flowers help heal wounds that are physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Combined together they help us get to the core of the wound so healing can be complete.

Or consider our remedy Golden Armor. This one was created after 911 at the request of Archangel Michael. I had no conception of how the world would change in terms of technology after that moment. As I have mentioned before, I thought the intent of this remedy was more in the vein of protecting us from anthrax or something like that. But the Angels had a longer view than I did. They knew that burgeoning technology and stress as well as rising vibrations would give us a lot to deal with. This remedy has many complex layers of healing information about sound protection and buffering as well as viral and bacterial protection. It supports us to be in the world but not of the world, keeping our electrical systems humming at a high clear rate even when we are bombarded with dissonant vibration.

Yesterday a Green Hope friend called Kim wrote us,
“Still wonder why there are so many remedies per essence. This is very uncommon. How do you decide to lump so many together and assume more is better which often is not. Especially since Bach for example are singles save for rescue remedy.”

I attached this information from the Guidebook as I still think it says something worth saying,

HOW MANY IS TOO MANY?
We receive many questions about the safe number of Flower Essences to take at one time. Some of the most widely read information on Flower Essences is very firm about not taking more than a few Flower Essences at a time. Many of these books were written over eighty years ago or are based on principles set forth eighty years ago. I suggest you read this literature with a big grain of salt. Just as a driver’s manual for a 1930’s Model T Ford would not answer questions about your new Lexus, this information is inspiring, but it cannot be the final word on Flower Essences or your energy system. As with the evolution of the motorcar, your electrical system is not what it would have been in the 1930’s, nor is it the same as it was in the 1980’s or even the 1990’s. You and your electrical system are in the process of rapid vibratory change. Dogma only inhibits your ability to support yourself, in these changing times as efficiently and completely as possible. Toss out the Model T literature and follow the manual for your present electrical system; YOUR guidance from YOUR heart in this NOW.

I also repeated my conviction that each day our electrical systems are assaulted by a lot of negative information that we have to manage. This is difficult for us. However, our electrical systems are thirsty for good information and adept at reading and learning from all this good information. We can handle many Flower Essences and complex Flower Essence combinations just fine, much as we could handle the vibration of a large bouquet of mixed Flowers or that garden of Flowers mentioned before.

100_6244

In fact, right now we need this information. So please wallow in Flowers! Trust yourself if your water glass is pink with Flower Essences. We are in a unique moment in time, and Flower Essences are uniquely suited to help us right now.

Here’s to a Confident Crossing!

The Angels of Green Hope Farm remarked this morning,

“This time is not a crossroads but a crossing. Humanity and the entire planet are on a journey from one reality to another. You cross from the old to the new on a bridge that feels a bit shaky, but it is not. When you feel uncertain, vulnerable or literally shaken up as you cross this bridge, remember you can and will get to the other side. The collective spiritual momentum will take you across, so do it fearlessly with confidence and conviction. The new territory is in sight. It is worth this crossing. Keep going.”

Confidence is a topic that has come up a lot recently in conversations with the Angels. To support us in confidence the Angels chose a number of new Essences this fall holding information about confidence. Gorse, Harebell from Scotland, Heather, and the Way Forward all support us to manifest this quality. Gorse helps us never lose hope by anchoring us in confidence that there always IS hope. Harebell helps us find the confidence and courage to act fearlessly and with decisiveness even when our choices set us apart from those around us. Heather helps us be confident that we matter. It helps us be confident of our place in the world. The Way Forward helps us confidently choose our direction even when the trail ahead is hard to discern. The Way Forward is a particularly good Essence for everyone right now. We are all crossing the bridge to a new reality that will remain unknowable until we get there.

The Angels encouraged me to mention once again why Flower Essences are so helpful right now.

This year has seen many waves of energy sweep the planet. As our planet shifts gears, the changes on the planet begin as energetic ones then translate into physical manifestations of change. This is also true for the microcosm of our individual energy systems. As we assimilate the incoming higher energies, our energy systems change and then our physical systems reflect these changes.

The change process has brought some wonderful things and will continue to bring wonderful things. It has also brought temporary energy glitches that result in physical symptoms. For example, many of you have mentioned that as the higher vibrations pour through your individual energy systems, you experience strange burning, buzzing and itching sensations in your hands and feet as the energies seek to move through your systems completely. Flower Essences such as Flow Free, Grounding or The Alignment Garden can help this energy move. This in turn alleviates the physical symptoms.

There is no stopping these symptoms with a chemical remedy as the situation is not caused by a chemical difficulty but by an energetic concern. That is one reason why Flower Essences are so helpful right now.

With such a big energy shift underway, much of what we are experiencing is first and foremost an energetic reaction to the energetic shifts followed by physical symptoms. These physical symptoms often disappear once we resolve our energetic difficulties with the support of Flower Essences or some other energetic tool.

I want to pause here to say that while I describe the higher energies as coming from outside ourselves, this is not really accurate. Since we are one with all creation this spiritual transformation truly arises from within us.

Speaking of energetic tools, yes, we do have A LOT of them! Having grown up in a world where Prell was often the only shampoo on the shelves and jeans meant Levis, I hear you on the sometimes bewildering diversity of Flower Essences we have. The Angels are in charge of expanding our collection of Flower Essences, and they feel strongly about offering a vast choice of Essences. Here they explain why,

“As each of you make this crossing, a lifetime of specific energy system patterns must be upgraded for the higher energies to flow easily in your systems. We want you to have every available tool to unravel any specific glitch your energy system may face during this time of transition.

Our job is to make sure that all the tools you need are there for you. We have been collecting these tools at Green Hope Farm for almost thirty years to be able to offer the most effective energetic information for you RIGHT NOW no matter how you are wired.

Yes, we know it can feel overwhelming when you look at the offerings, but we are part of you, guiding you to the very Flower Essences you need for your specific concerns. If you look at the photos of the Flowers or read the Essence descriptions in a quiet moment, we promise to be with you clarifying and simplifying the process so that you will have a clear sense of which Flower Essence would be helpful. Trust yourself now and always. We journey with you and will not let you down as you take this great leap.”

New Green Hope Farm Flower Essences from the 2015 season

The time of great planetary transformation is upon us! The intention for this year’s new Flower Essence introductions is to help light our way and steady us on our path forward into a new life on a reborn planet. We collectively head for new territory. No one can say exactly what this territory will be like, but Flower Essences can help us manifest this new world both within ourselves and without.

No one owns the place we are going. We go together as co-creators and equals to this new world. The Flower Essences the Angels have chosen for us this year are to help us lay down limitations that hinder our expansion into this boundless new life. These new Flower Essences help us jettison old self definitions, find confidence in our way forward and offer us vibrational tools that will work in this new terrain.

Stone age people did not immediately grasp the full ramifications of the wheel. When given any tool, it takes time to understand how it expands the possibilities of life. This is true of Flower Essences. Even as they bring their gifts to our electrical systems, we cannot know the full extent of these gifts. How relevant they are to this transition on our planet will only be seen in retrospect. This means the descriptions of these new Essences are incomplete. The terrain ahead cannot be fully described nor can we fully know the way Flower Essences will help us in this new terrain. But the Angels have said again and again that Flower Essences and our reborn planet are a match made in heaven, unrivaled in the way they will help us become all that we can be.

IMG_0640

Boundless
Release of all limitation to experience our infinite Self

This year’s Venus Garden began as a garden of low growing purple Flowers with two waves of white Flowers flowing through it. Over the course of the growing season, Boundless seized its own destiny to become boundless, transforming itself into a garden overflowing with brilliant Flowers in a vast array of colors and sizes, None of these Flowers were planted by the human caretakers! The Angels explain this wonder and its Flower Essence,

“On this boundless planet at this boundless time, the task for you is to open and receive. You must throw out any doubts about your worthiness and ignore any voice that would say no to this YES moment. Take the spiritual gifts on offer. In fact, grab for them as you grabbed for the golden ring on the merry-go-rounds of childhood. Open your arms and your hearts and let us give you everything we want to give you- everything Divinity wants to give you.

This Flower creation, Boundless is a gift from us to help you embrace the light and your boundless Self. It supports you to release all limits about who you think you are or can be to realize ALL you truly are which is, in truth, boundless.

Boundless helps you avail yourself to all the immeasurable spiritual gifts on offer. Boundless helps you abandon anything that stands in the way of you opening to receive these gifts. It helps you break down the walls of resistance and self imposed limitation to make the most of this unique moment in creation, this time in which so much Love and Light is here for the taking because of Divine Grace.”

A much more complete description of Boundless and the Boundless Garden can be found on the previous blog.

False Dragonhead

False Dragonhead Physostegia virginiana
Expressing our core experience of self no matter the circumstances

The signature of this Flower conveys its gifts. Growing in the most exposed locations False Dragonhead will swivel its blossoms to accommodate gale force winds while steadfastly expressing each fine articulation of its pink blossoms. Its Essence helps us both accommodate challenging circumstances while also being completely true to ourselves. It is a great support for big-hearted souls, giving them the strength to fearlessly be love, even if their love appears to be pushed aside. This Flower knows love is the only thing and an act of love is never lost in the wind.

I AM an invaluable force of love.

Harmony with All Kingdoms

Harmony With All Kingdoms
Helps each of us inhabit the vibration of oneness with all creation. By holding this vibration, we help everyone tune up to this frequency.

Individual human consciousness began with the illusionary idea of separation. This illusion organized our experience into divisions of better or worse, valuable and not valuable. While this illusion initially helped us to experience a conscious sense of being, it no longer serves us. It is time to dissolve this mind filter to experience the truth that all is one. Harmony With All Kingdoms speeds the release of this illusion of separation so that co-creation between all kingdoms can begin in earnest, and we can live from a realized state of oneness.

What we are talking about is a release of the illusionary idea of self as separate and an end of all selfish actions stemming from this idea of a separate self. The age upon us is beyond selfishness. It is a time in which we know completely that selfish behavior is as insane as the left hand cutting off the right.

This Essence was created at the request of a marvelous woman working to raise consciousness beyond animal cruelty. Thank you Erika for inspiring this mix.

Henri Martin Rose

Henri Martin Rose Rosa Henri Martin
Bear Medicine

Like bears in the slumber of hibernation, we have incubated a new way of being. Now it is time to awaken. The birth is upon us. The Bear medicine that helped us dream now helps us transform the dream into form.

Bear medicine helps us with timing, revealing when we need to wait and when we need to act. Bear medicine helps us pare out the unnecessary so we can manifest only what needs to be. Bear medicine helps us understand both our oneness AND good boundaries. The opportunities are vast for spiritual growth, but we have to show up. Bear medicine reminds us to show up. Bear medicine reminds us we must do our own work. Mama bears will do anything to protect their cubs, but when their cubs are grown, they free them to live their own lives with the understanding that they must make their own way. Bear medicine helps us do likewise both with people we have cared for and projects we have birthed. There is much support to let go in bear medicine.

We had a bear summer here at the farm. A bear travelled through the farm frequently even during daylight hours. With each visit we felt a wise friend had returned to check in about how things were going. The bear would come through at a fast pace, without lingering. Bear had its business, and we had ours, but the visits uplifted and encouraged. Our interest in bears and bear medicine took an unexpected turn when the Angels told us we had bear medicine to offer in our Henri Martin Rose Flower Essence. I had never linked bears with Roses, but we found that once we acknowledged this link, this Rose called out to both bears and people seeking bear medicine. One beloved working with rescue bears in the Appalachians gave it to bears in her care. If you feel bear medicine is calling to you or would support you, this Rose helps you deepen your connection to bears and bear medicine.

I AM the manifest wisdom of bear medicine.

Little Frog Mix

Little Frog Mix
Autism

At the behest of a healer named Little Frog, we set to work to create a mix that would be supportive to souls living the experience of autism. Feedback on this mix has been wonderful, especially when the mix is used as a spritz over the child or adult or in their space.

Some of the intentions for the mix are to support:
-greater connectivity to others with less reactivity and stress
-learning to be at ease in physical reality even when higher vibration nonphysical realms feel more comfortable
-being present as well as fully grounded in physical life

Mango

Mango
Revitalizes and cleanses energy meridians, improves function of energy pathways

Mango Flower Essences is a powerhouse. During this time when we must move so much more light through our electrical system, Mango dramatically improves our ability to move this light. Mango cleanses and revitalizes energy meridians which helps us move the electrical energy coming through us in a more coordinated and balanced way. Those who find they are having a particularly challenging time in their top three chakras will find this one to be particularly helpful.

I AM the full assimilation of all Light energy.

Sow Thistle

Sow Thistle Sonchus oleraceus
Support to clear the heart of old hates and bitterness, moves us away from lives of extreme drama

Lying flat like a golden disk, this Wildflower is composed of a multitude of yellow petals radiating symmetrically outwards. Echoing this outward movement, Sow Thistle helps us houseclean our hearts of old hatreds and bitterness. For the person who has been through many arduous personal dramas, it also helps calm the waters not only by cleansing the heart but by balancing it.

I AM pure of heart.

The Way Forward

The Way Forward
Shows us the way forward no matter where we are on our spiritual journeys or how lost we feel

So much is in flux that it can be hard to get a bead on the way forward. We must ground so much more light energy than ever before while also shedding umpteen illusions revealed as unnecessary and unreal in the light of this energy. Move forward we must AND unburdened at that. How do we do this with the clarity and confidence?

Elizabeth Sheehan walked the 500 mile pilgrimage route across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela three times. Her first pilgrimage brought us the Camino Collection of Flower Essences. Her second journey gave us the Healer’s Toolbox. On her third Camino, Elizabeth made Flower Essences, but at the time the Angels indicated that these Essences needed to wait for release. Here is what the Angels have to say about this now,

“NOW is the time for this combination remedy, The Way Forward, made by Elizabeth from many Flowers down the entire length of the Camino. Just as on the Camino there is a yellow arrow pointing the way forward at every turn, this Essence contains the vibrational arrows pointing your way forward no matter where you are on your spiritual path. The Camino is a place that embodies the spiritual journey to conscious oneness and reunion with Divinity. When we guided Elizabeth in the creation of this mix, our intention was to imbed the Essence with wayshowers at each place of confusion, unknown and paradigm shift along the spiritual seeker’s path. We are delighted it is time to release this gem of an Essence.”

Wound Healing
Healing our wounds completely and for good

This combination remedy works in the emotional, mental, physical and etheric/memory bodies to close wounds that may appear healed but still magnetize to us the same kinds of problems, accidents, incidents, illnesses, interpersonal dramas and other wound re-opening events over and over again. Isn’t it time to be done with the same old story? This Essence helps us get the job done.

If you attract the same kind of interpersonal dramas, re-injure the same place in your body or feel you have a magnet attracting the same problems, this Essence if for you! We have waited a long time for the Angels to tell us we had all the Flower Essences we needed to make this mix. We are so happy to offer it to you!

Scotland

Flower Essences from SCOTLAND
Jim Sheehan travelled to Scotland, north and east of Inverness this summer, returning with Flower Essences primarily from coastal dunes. These Scottish Flower Essences are surprisingly different than their Flower Essences cousins from the west of Ireland. Though growing geographically close, they have unique vibrational gifts distinct from the same Flowers growing in Ireland. These Essences are particularly relevant right now. They go deep into any part of us that feels unprepared for change, reluctant to change or simply overwhelmed by change and help us know we are ready, we can do it, and it is time to do it! These Essences support us to think and act with optimism, conviction, clarity and a determination of purpose.

One last thing! Please forgive the blurry photos! Scotland is a windy place and the Flowers were difficult to photograph!

Bramble from Scotland

Bramble from Scotland Rubus fruiticosus
Lightening even the darkest of situations

Bramble from Scotland supports us to lighten up and find a bead on the positive no matter how heavy our current circumstances. It restores sunshine and positivity in places where darkness has lingered. It gently pries open even the darkest inner locked box within us to flood it with light. Just as someone might pull back the curtains in a darkened room to wake us up, this one helps us arise from a dark place and move towards a place of greater light.

I AM the blossoming of Light.

Gorse

Gorse Ulex europaeus
Imperturbable optimism and hope

Gorse is a Flower Essence that floods us with uplifting light and hope. It is particularly supportive in situations of transition and challenges such as illness, despair or heartbreak. Gorse helps us have a steadiness of hope and optimism within ourselves even in situations in which we are being battered by the winds of change or find ourselves in an environment of pessimism. It is an excellent ally when a feeling of all is lost is prevalent because Gorse knows all is never lost.

On the high seas of life, I AM hope.

Harebell from Scotland

Harebell from Scotland Campanula rotundifolia
Unwavering courage and clear purpose in thought, word and deed

Harebell from Scotland helps us know our truth in a composed, focused and calm manner. When we must translate our convictions into actions, it helps us find the courage to act decisively and without fear even if it means rising above and standing apart from the crowd.

I AM the courage to act from my convictions with unwavering calm, clarity and decisiveness.

Heather from Scotland

Heather Calluna vulgaris
Confidence and contentment with our place in the cosmos

Heather supports us to have complete faith in our place in the unity of all things. It brings us confidence and joy that each of us matters. Heather helps us understand that every voice rings out a unique note that enhances and lifts up all other voices. This vibrational wisdom translates into self-expression that reflects a sense of connection not illusions of lack or disconnection.

I AM sure of my place in the world and rest easy in knowing I matter.

Purple Orchid from Scotland

Purple Orchid from Scotland
Get up and go energy

This orchid started explaining its Flower Essence the moment the Essence was in my hands, “ I AM a get started, lace up your boots and get going energy. I help you find the energy from within to do what you must without fail and without qualm.”

I AM the swift and steady accomplishment of my goals.

Sweet Briar Rose

Sweet Briar Rose Rosa rubiginosa
Balm for ancestral wounds

Part of redefining ourselves in this new terrain is closing the chapters of our family of origin lineage so ideas of lineage no longer limit or define us. This Rose helps us put a wrap on the stories of our ancestors and brings relief to those who have been burdened by their lineage for any reason be it fame, infamy or anything in-between. It is time to be free of all cages, even golden ones.

I AM spirit unblemished.
