New Flower Essences 2017

The Angels have hope and faith in us and the current human situation. Yes, there is immense work to be done, but yes, we can do it. To underscore their confidence in us, the Angels and Elementals have created an incredible group of Flower Essences to support us right now. These new Flower Essences are a toolbox for seeing where we are with clarity as well as hope. They help us envision the future and move towards it in constructive, healing ways. They support us to manifest our best selves on a healing planet.

Just as walking in on someone in the middle of a surgery would not give us an indication of where the person is in the healing process or how things are going to turn out, the degree to which things look profoundly messy right now is not an indication that the situation is hopeless. It is a sign that we are deep into the healing, deep into the surgery. This year’s Flower Essences remind us of this hopeful truth even as they offer specific tools for the ongoing work of healing ourselves and our dear planet.

Through Angels’ Eyes

Each year a new design from the Angels for the Venus Garden grows into a radiant garden that then becomes a combination Flower Essence for you. This year’s Venus Garden Essence is called Through Angels’ Eyes. After this very tumultuous year, the vibrational gift of this Essence feels particularly helpful.

Angels see us with complete clarity which means they see beneath the tarnish of our personalities to the radiant divine core of our eternal being. This means they see us and our situation with hope and confidence that love will prevail. They know that in oneness we will find our way forward. This remedy helps us see through Angels’ eyes with tenderness, hope, faith and clarity. This remedy helps us see the great purity within all of us and helps us envision a wonderful future for Earth and all her creatures. It reminds us hope is ALWAYS appropriate and never misplaced. It reminds us the divinity within us and all things will prevail.

Hope is vital because without hope we close our eyes. It’s too painful to see any situation without hope. But in hopelessness with our eyes shut, we don’t see the solutions or the support we are getting to manifest these solutions. We need to cultivate hope and then open our eyes to see. This is the wisdom of Through Angels’ Eyes. It helps us see from a matrix of hope and confidence there are solutions and we will find them. Hope gives us the freedom to know we can acknowledge where we are from a framework of knowing there is a way forward.

In availing ourselves to see Through Angels’ Eyes, we see the problems in their particulars, but we also see the particulars of love and support we receive each and every day from the divinity that permeates all reality.

We all know someone who loves humanity but doesn’t like people. Divinity is not this kind of hands off force. Divinity did not and never has washed its hands of us. Divinity is with us in the particulars each and every moment of each and every day. Divinity is in the coincidences, the tender moments of uplift and support, the calm we find when we stop and go within, the still small voice in our hearts, the humor of life, the synchronicities. Feeling hope and noticing these things can be hard won. The culture reinforces hopelessness, but the culture is misinformed. Hope is not misguided. We will find our way forward together. It is done.

Flowers in this year’s Venus Garden mandala and combination remedy: Cosmos Double Click Cranberry, Cosmos Rose BonBon, Cosmos Sensation, Cosmos White BonBon, Eyes of Mary, Heliotrope, Hopi Tobacco, Mehera Marigolds, Nicotiana Fragrant White, Nicotiana Hot Chocolate, Nicotiana alata Lime, Nicotiana Perfume Mix, Salmon Geranium, Sunset Runner Bean, Sweet Allysum, White Heliotrope

LisianthusEustoma russellianum

This breathtakingly beautiful Flower offers a Flower Essence that is all about helping us to hold the immaculate concept for ourselves, for others and for Earth. This involves seeing the purity and wholeness of each person, seeing them without blemish or fault. Lisianthus encourages us to tap into each person’s eternal identity unhinged from experiences in this realm of learning lessons. It encourages us to hold fast to this divine identity instead of zeroing in on the thin slice of imperfection we see play out as each of us goes through our necessary Earth experiences.

To hold the immaculate concept for self and others is a profound gift. It creates a literal field of energy around ourselves and others that knows we can be victorious in fulfilling the divine plan for each of us. By visualizing the divine blueprint of a person, situation or idea it becomes that much easier for this ideal to manifest. When we hold this energy focus for another, we help them to tap into these uplifting feelings and express this divine reality.

I AM one with the Immaculate concept for me, for those I share my life with and for all creation.

Vision

This year the Red Shiso was planted in a mandala shaped like an eye. Vision Flower Essence was created from this powerful mandala. Years ago we grew a similar Red Shiso mandala and made a small amount of Vision Essence from the garden. It proved helpful for every kind of vision concern. We are so glad to have it available again! Consider Vision Essence when you need a view of the bigger picture. Vision also helps us see situations from different perspectives. It supports our vision about creative projects including films, theatre, dance, visual arts, music and written works. It is a transformative Essence for those with eyesight concerns. The Angels brought back Vision Flower Essence to help with all these concerns and also to help us envision the future in all its particulars and to envision the healing path we can take to move towards this future. We welcome Vision back to our line-up with open arms and from a place of knowing what an incredible source of healing wisdom it is.

PotatoSolanum tuberosum

This Flower Essence is all about hidden treasures out of sight. It helps us trust that our efforts to heal will bear results even when those results remain hidden away. It is especially good when a healing process is protracted and progress seems slow. In this way it is a very uplifting and encouraging Flower Essence.

Potato Flower Essence helps us know that what we see on the surface is not the full story of a person or circumstance. It is not meant to make us more cynical but to make us aware that positive changes often happen out of view and can only be seen after the harvest. This vibrational wisdom is echoed in how potatoes grow underground with the crop only revealed when we dig them up at harvest time.

I AM released from despair and doubt by a deeper awareness of life.

Fava BeanVicia faba

Fava Bean has unusual black and white blossoms. Its Flower Essence does not encourage us to make black and white judgments or try to sanitize our feelings into black and white extremes. We need to see and experience the greys in the world. Instead, Fava Bean helps us see circumstances with greater clarity. If you have a difficult time seeing situations clearly or if a particular situation remains out of focus for you, Fava Bean is an excellent choice as it sharpens our ability to see what is really going on.

No matter the situation, I AM able to see the truth.

Julia Child RoseRosa “Julia Child”

This is a beautiful Rose of a deep saturated gold. I love that it was named after Julia Child. She was a person of great enthusiasm, but she was also a person of great persistence. This is the gift of this Rose. It helps us be both enthusiastic in our efforts and also fully committed to keep on keeping on. This persistence is so important right now when sometimes the obstacles can seem insurmountable. When working with this Flower Essence, it would be wonderful to call in the Angel of Faith to support you and fill you with an imperishable sense of faith.

I AM Faith.

Pink Grootendorst RoseRosa Pink Grootendorst

This deeply comforting Flower Essence throws us a life raft of love when we have been swamped by painful and difficult events. If bleak pessimism or hopelessness has seeped into our lives, this Rose vibrationally lifts us up to restore our sense of wonder, innocence and confidence that all will be well and that only love is real.

I AM a life raft of love.

Pearly EverlastingAnaphalis margaritacea

Flowers are masters of controlled mutation and change. And that is what it is all about for our electrical systems right now as the vibration of the planet rises dramatically, and we must keep pace.

Pearly Everlasting offers support for the older generations here on Earth to adapt and stay current with rising vibration of the planet. Young people have come into incarnation with electrical circuitry adapted to the vibrational rate of the planet. Whereas those of us who have been here awhile must raise up the vibration of our electrical systems to keep pace with the planet. The older we are the more we must shift our electrical system to match the vibration of the planet. Fortunately Flower Essences are ALL about helping us make these electrical shifts. Pearly Everlasting in particular helps us access tools within us to electrically adapt and thrive. Linden is another Flower Essence to remember to use for this work.

I AM the manifest wisdom of my evolving light body.

 

CilantroCoriandrum sativum

Just as the leafy greens of Cilantro help us to cleanse the brain of toxins, so too Cilantro Flower Essence offers information to support us in this cleansing work. It will stand alone in helping us cleanse and will also work in harmony with Cilantro greens to cleanse our systems of heavy metals and other toxins specifically in the brain where many heavy metals are stored.

Cilantro Flower Essence also supports a deep cleansing of the mental body where we typically store outgrown mind ideas and old illusions that need to go. This wisdom about cleansing both physically and energetically opens space in our energy system and in our brains. Cilantro has a vibration of great positivity that can fill this space with an expansive sense of self as an evolving spiritual being in an evolving and healing world. Cilantro goes deep in its cleansing then matches this with its gift of illuminating hope-filled Light.

I AM a force of positivity and change. I AM clarity of thought.

Kinkanda SquashLagenaria siceraria

This extraordinary Flower Essence is for male and female fertility.  Its radiant blossoms reach for the skies then grow into seven foot long squashes. The Angels explain that Kinkanda Squash is going to be a profound support for male fertility which is in a drastic decline in first world countries with sperm counts down by fifty percent.

I AM the movement between the stars and the earth. I AM manifestation.

To support issues of fertility and conception we have searched the Earth for helpful Flower Essences.

Early Fall Wildflower Flower Essences

The early fall Wildflowers are such dynamos. They are among the most powerful of all our Flower Essences, and they always feel so perfectly helpful.

Today on a walk I encountered old friends including Bottle Gentian, Silver-rod, Goldenrod, Jewelweed, Self Heal, Niella and Joe Pye Weed.

Bottle Gentian has been one of my favorite Essences for decades Nothing rivals its incredible wisdom about seeing clearly and holding our own in complex and chaotic situations.

Silver-rod brings much support to the pituitary gland which regulates growth, metabolism and body composition. Its Flower Essence offers also wisdom about keeping our electrical field clear of dissonance as well as finding radiant good health. Echoing its vibrational strengths, Silver-rod shoots its flower stalks straight up into the autumn blue skies with such clarity and confidence.  It wonderful I AM affirmation speaks so well to its strengths; ” I AM aligned with the electromagnetic field of my Creator and thus can ride out disturbances in the field with ease and grace.”

Goldenrod, Goldenrod, Goldenrod!

I know for certain this is the first Flower Essence I ever made because I started to make this one regularly when I was about six.  Without telling any grown-ups, I would go out to this fort I had made in the scrubby lilac bushes behind our barn, hauling my dolls and a battered tin tea set. I would soak Goldenrod Flowers in water then drink up this “tea” with the dolls sharing in the brew.  I can taste this glorious concoction still.  No doubt it helped me stand in my truth in a family that never really got my passion for wild plants or pretty much any of my passions.

Goldenrod is a good one to be blooming right now as children go back to school since school is such an enormous arena in which we learn how to be true to ourselves and be a goldenrod of our own wisdom and not a follower of other people’s ideas.

Viva Goldenrod!

My first serious connection to Jewelweed came when I got poison ivy and read in Euell Gibbon’s Stalking the Wild Herbs that Jewelweed was an excellent antidote to poison ivy.  I followed his directions to make a topical potion from Jewelweed and used it whenever I got a rash from poison ivy.  This was an all too frequently as we had a neighbor who would frequently burn poison ivy leaves in his brush piles.  I was meticulous about avoiding contact with this plant on my own forays into fields and woods, but still needed my Jewelweed potion which I would freeze in ice cube trays then rub on the rash.

How delighted I was to find, decades later, that Jewelweed also made a fabulous Flower Essence and for, of all things, IRRITATIONS. I love how plant medicine is so consistent!

When summer staffer Rex got poison ivy this summer when he made new pasture for his sheep, alpacas and chickens, we led him right to the Jewelweed Flower Essence and also went over and over this plant’s anatomy with him so he would steer clear of it in the future.  When I took care of his animals for a short stretch this summer I was surprised his poison ivy wasn’t worse!  The area where the chickens had their run was about 98% poison ivy!!!!  Yikes!

Self Heal is another old friend and one I am always so happy to meet in the woods.  What could be more important than each of us coming into clarity about our own healing gifts and our right to be well.

I am always on the look out for Niella because the two places where I originally found it growing in luxurious abundance are no longer places I can visit. It was a joy to discover a very lush patch on this morning’s walk.  This one is a Flower Essence of mysterious depths and powers.  Niella  is one of those Flower Essences that people write us about in long fascinating letters.  It is one of those Essences that people have had such profound experiences with.  I was so glad to find it today.

Joe Pye Weed is such a good one for Labor Day weekend. a holiday in which we are encouraged to rest from our labors, lay down our burdens and rest. Joe Pye Weed reminds us ACTUALLY DO THIS and reminds us that Divinity is always there to carry our burdens for us.  Thank you Joe Pye Weed!

Love and Labor Day Blessings to all of you!  May you have a peaceful weekend!

 

Words of Encouragement

Dear Ones,

For decades the Angels have been speaking of the Great Leap forward humanity would take from a vibrational matrix of selfishness to a vibrational matrix of SELFLESSNESS.

For decades, the  Angels and Elementals have warmed us to our tasks of supporting these changes internally as well as externally.   Along with the beloved Elementals, they have prepared us with Flower Essences and with love and support.

They have helped us negotiate early  vibrational hurdles and shown us all we could learn from these experiences to help us continue.   They have been steadfast in their support and will remain ever so,

This summer it is hard to miss that this vibrational shift, this Great Leap, is upon us!

From conversations with you, we know it feel pretty intense to just about all of us.  It can get hard to keep a bead on the life affirming changes happening underneath the turmoil.

So I was glad that today the Angels wanted to share some quick thoughts for how we can all continue on during this great time of upheaval and planetary transformation,

Expect the Unexpected. Yup.  Plans are going to change radically and unexpectedly,  Don’t assume it means you are doing anything wrong if your plans go haywire.  Know that it means mighty forces have come to your aid and shifted things to a way forward that actually serves you better.

Ask for help from Divinity however you define Divinity.  There is so much help available right now, and we need it. We can’t make this leap alone but we aren’t expected to.  Asking for help really matters.

The Divine Plan for us is not going to look like a Holiday in Paradise.  Things may be rocky with very challenging plot twists- some bordering on the surreal.  This does not mean you are doing it wrong.  It means that the plot has to change suddenly in order to support you as best you can be supported during a very improvisational  time on this planet.

Avoid Side Skirmishes. Big and Little.  If you know that contacting someone is likely going to cause drama, save your energy and don’t do it.  We need all the energy we have right now for making this vibrational shift.  If the side skirmish is not mandatory, avoid it,  And let’s face it, most side skirmishes are avoidable.   We really need our energy for the vibrational shift.  Refusing to engage in negativity with another leaves our light free to help others and ourselves in other ways.

Listen to the Still Small Voice within about what to do and not do.  Consider listening about everything you do.  “Do I really need to go down to the grocery store for that bottle of vanilla extract right now? Would it be better just to center myself and be still?”  We  need to conserve our strength right now. Sometimes this means little things like not loading our plates with tasks we do not have to do right now.  We need a lot of calm and quiet and stillness to assimilate the incoming energies.  When in doubt about how to proceed, wait until clarity comes.  Some of our habits to keep moving  take a lot out of us, and we would be better served to stop and wait for clarity about what to do and what not to do.

Seek EQUANIMITY! There is a reason why the Angels made Equanimity our central new Flower Essence introduction last year.  We need to stay calm. In the office everyone wants to use the “Keep Calm and Carry On” mug we have, and we are all filling our mugs and water glasses with Essences like Equanimity, Grounding, Indian Pipe and Arbor Garden.  We do not have enough energy to make this vibrational shift and also process all the news or other worldly events that can adrenaline us so completely,  We need to save our strength for the task at hand- helping ourselves make the vibrational shift we need to make and helping the beloveds in our life to do so as well. Being selective about what gets our attention  is not about being uncompassionate,. It is about using the resources we have appropriately and not squandering our energy on situations we can do nothing about.

Ask for Help It seems worth saying again that mighty forces are with us to help us with this shift.  To be more specific, Divinity is with us and supporting us,  but more support can be given if we ask for more support.  Consider making this request for help a continuous one.  Divinity never expected us to make this leap without help.  Divinity is there for us completely and wants to help us in every way possible.

Thinking of all of you and sending much love and encouragement!

 

A Meet Cute

How do new Flower Essences come to be made here?

Often it is a bit of a “Meet Cute.”

This is phrase I learned in the wonderful Holiday movie called, The Holiday with Kate Winslet.  At one point, a dear elderly Hollywood producer is telling Kate’s character that in a story or a film there always has to be a funny and charming way that the love interests meet.  I feel that way about Flowers.  I always feel meeting a Flower is a big deal and seeing an old Flower friend after a long winter a very special reunion.  This makes every day in the garden such a gift to me as you can imagine how many reunions I have!

So anyways, for me the “Meet Cute” is when I bump into the Flower- maybe one I have known, maybe one I have been looking for or maybe one that is new to me.  And the Flower calls out to me in some way or another. Usually in a way that makes it hard for me to miss!  Thank you Flowers.

It helps with the Meet Cute when some of you have been asking for this Flower to be made into a Flower Essence.  Its like I have gotten a bit of an introduction before we actually meet and I am looking for the moment we meet- So Thank YOU for all your suggestions!

This weekend’s “Meet Cute” was with a new friend possibly in the Horehound family.

During a sparkly clear dawn, I was standing in a field down the road from here watching another activity when I glanced down and saw a patch of Flowers all lit up and glowing.  Within moments, a Flower Essence was underway.

And here she is, a new friend as yet to be identified with the Flower Essence joining the ranks this morning.

After the Fourth

One thing which keeps me busy in the days surrounding the Fourth of July is working with the air Elementals, aka the Sylphs, to repair the damage done to the air element by fireworks.

Yes, its not just your dogs that don’t like fireworks- The Elementals loathe them!

New Hampshire has the most complicated regulations for say getting septic tank approval to build a new home but pretty much a five year old can walk into a store and pick up a truck load of fireworks.  This means that on the days before the Fourth and even after, there are fireworks everywhere. Firework season has become Memorial Day to Labor Day! And this has been very hard on the Air Element and the hear working Air Elementals who are already swamped dealing with our pollution.

If you would like to work with the Sylphs to repair the damage done on land near you, ask the Sylphs over the property where the fireworks took place to cleanse, clear illuminate and rebalance the air of this place.  Our request is necessary due to humanity’s free will. The Elementals will assume we want the air Element looking like swiss cheese if we don’t ask for this repair.

If you would like to work the whole piece of land, call in Pan (head of all Elementals), and all the Elementals (which includes Sylphs for the air element, Undines for the water element, Salamanders for the fire element, Gnomes for the earth Elemental and Ether Elementals for the Ether element. and ask that all the Elements of the property be cleansed, cleared, illuminated and rebalanced.  There is a much longer description of land clearing on our website’s resources page in the section under Angels & Elementals.

ANY land clearing work you do right now matters so much to Earth!  Consider making this a part of your daily routine! BLESS YOU!

Now I am off to the potato patch to check in on a Potato Flower Essence I am making with the dozen gorgeous potato varieties we are growing right now- I have never had such a radiant group of potato plants here, much as we grow them every year- I credit my son in law, Charlie who is in charge of the potatoes this year.  He has a real touch with potatoes!
