Flower Essences from Patagonia

Green Hope Farm staffer Molly Sanders brought these Flower Essences back to us from the Torres del Paines region of Patagonia in the fall of 2014. We welcome these Flower Essences from Patagonia and delight in this opportunity to share them with you!

THE ANTARCTIC FLORAL KINGDOM
One special thing about these Patagonian Flower Essences is that they come from a very different Floral Kingdom than our own. Flowering plants originate from six distinct geographic regions known as Floral Kingdoms. Each Floral Kingdom contains endemic plants found only in that Floral Kingdom as well as plants transplanted there from other Kingdoms.


These Patagonian Flower Essences come from the Antarctic Floral Kingdom of Antarctica, Patagonia and New Zealand, three landmasses south of 40 degrees south latitude. The Antarctic Floral Kingdom includes these geographically distant places because of their shared origins hundreds of million of years ago as part of the supercontinent landmass of Gondwana.


When Gondwana broke up, Patagonia experienced a further 10 million years as a geographical island drifting in isolation from other landmasses. This isolation resulted in a high number of Flowers endemic only to Patagonia. Not surprisingly, these Flowers hold a unique wisdom to a very high degree.

THE WISDOM OF PATAGONIAN FLOWERS
The Flowers of Patagonia have a wisdom that is very heart centered. Their geological history translates into practical wisdom for us to find a similar heart centered experience of life. They handled their experience of separation from a greater whole by translating loss into detachment. From a place of detachment, they went inward to anchor in the eternal reality of the Divinity within them, recognizing this Divinity within as their essential and only eternal self-identity.

Experiences of loss call all of us to detachment. We have to let go because what we were holding onto is gone. Because the Patagonian Flowers have navigated the evolutionary journey of loss, detachment and a blossoming of divine self-identity in the wake of this detachment, these Flowers help us better grasp the gifts of this detachment. They also help us find our own divine self identity as they did.

From outward focus to detachment to an anchoring in our hearts where we know and experience our inner relationship with Divinity: this is the journey the Patagonian Flower Essences support us to take. They literally flip us on our heads and pour us into the depths of our hearts. For that, I thank them and Molly Sanders too who went a very long way to bring us back these healing gems.

These Patagonian Flowers hold a deep desire to share their Flower Essences with you. Their definitions were dictated to me in one crystal clear session. I typed as fast as I could and still their love bubbled faster! Thank you Patagonian friends!

FOXGLOVE FROM PATAGONIA Digitalis purpurea
This Flower Essence creates the foundation from which our relationship with the Flowers of the Antarctic Floral Kingdom, the Elementals of these Flowers and their Flower Essences proceeds. This is the Flower Essence to help you fully anchor in your electrical system the wisdom of all Patagonian Flower Essences.

Foxglove Flower Essence acts as an electrical relay for the electrical wisdom of Flower Essences to transfer from the Elementals holding it in form to us. This is a unique collection of Essences requiring the Foxglove relay because the electrical patterns of these Flowers are very different than those of our Floral Kingdom, and they present us with very different vibrational materials than we have experienced.

If you decide to work with any of these Flower Essences from Patagonia, your electrical receptivity to their wisdom will be greatly enhanced by working with this Flower Essence.

I AM the full assimilation of the Flower wisdom of Patagonia.

Please note that in the photo above, an Elemental has shown itself to the right of the Foxglove Flower.

OURISIA POEPPIGLI Ourisia Poeppigli
With its beautiful clear red tubular bell shaped blossoms, this Flower and its Flower Essence offer a template for a new way to live in the body. The wisdom of this Patagonian Flower helps us reframe our experience of life in a physical body especially if we have had a mental focus in which we have seen our body as a tool, a vehicle, a bother or a mechanism that breaks down. Ourisia supports us to more fully inhabit our physical bodies with an increased vitality, a deepening love for our bodies and an expanded but extremely grounded experience of being spirit incarnate.

I AM the temple of Divinity incarnate.

CHILEAN FIREBUSH Embrothium coccineum
Chilean Firebush helps us release mental loops and pockets of mind ideas that no longer serve us. It brings a very thorough cleansing while keeping us anchored in the verities of infinite intelligence. This results in an experience of a vibration of self that is both grounded and greatly expanded. In being fully present to the particular we are released into something greater than ourselves.

As a plant, Chilean Firebush exudes a substance that transmutes otherwise inaccessible forms of nutrients into forms that can be utilized. In a similar way, this Essence helps us transmute mental agitation into channels of useful universal mind ideas for a fuller experience of spiritual nourishment and self-identity.

I AM infinite intelligence.

ADESMIA LOTOIDES Adesmia lotoides
This lovely pale purple Flower in the legume family is endemic to Patagonia. It once bore the name Patagonium before it was assigned a new Latin name. Adesmia’s sprawling and abundant beds of soft purple Flowers invite us to sink down and savor its sweet enveloping beauty and kindness. Its Flower Essence invites a softening of our sharp edges and sharp thoughts. It softens our grudges against self by unlatching us from the thoughts of judgment and division that have long held us captive. It gives us a palpable experience of the grace of our circumstances in which there is infinite opportunity to find our way, nothing real has been lost and all else can and will be dissolved in love and forgiveness.

I AM a wellspring of love and forgiveness.

ANGEL ORCHID- Codonorchis lessonii
This Orchid Flower Essence awakens us into an experience of Divinity in each now. It ripens us to ask for Divine support then rest in a quieted mind until we absorb the response of love. It helps us create a back and forth exchange that deepens until all lines of demarcation are gone, and we realize we are the love coming out to greet ourselves. In creating a space of quiet receptivity within us, it helps us dissolve the temporary mindset of disconnection that would have us believe ourselves separate from Divinity.

It is time for us to know and live from a place of knowing and accepting our oneness with Divinity, and this Orchid friend wants to help us.

I AM awake to my one true self.

CALCEOLARIA Calceolaria
This beauty has a puffy yellow pouch marked with speckles of brown inside its lip. Its Flower Essence helps us tap into the great reservoir of inner knowing within all of us. Calceolaria helps us anchor in this reservoir so that when painful events occur, we move forward confident we will transform the painful experiences into wisdom by simply returning to this inner reservoir. It is another Patagonian gem intent on dissolving pain by returning us to the great reservoir within us of pure knowing, pure compassion and love with detachment. Calceolaria tells us, “Your sorrows and difficulties really ARE grist for the mill, helping you find the reality of your inner Divinity. I help you experience this.”

I AM pure knowing.

PINK WANDS FROM PATAGONIA
This Flower glows in shades of pink with its flowering wands rising to the sky. It describes itself as adept at marshalling our sweet inner reserves in response to difficulties. It bolsters us in our efforts at loving kindness in response to whatever has happened. It helps us find the balance of self-love and engaging in the world with confident loving action. In any circumstance in which others have treated us from a mindset of self interest and selfishness, this Flower Essence affirms our belief that love not self interest is the transformative way forward and helps us ground this in every action, small and large.

I AM steady in my choice of loving kindness.

Winter Buttercup from the Austrian Alps

The ski coach frantically texted Vicki, “Where are you? You’re going to miss the plane!”

Vicki ignored the texts and kept running higher and higher into the Tyrolean Alps. She WOULD find that Flower calling to her before catching the plane back to America.

As she ran, Vicki felt the Flower itself was giving her the perseverance to come find it. Up the mountain she went, her cell phone buzzing in her back pocket.

The higher Vicki climbed the smaller the village of Juns appeared below her and the more panoramic the view of the Hintertux glacier, but Vicki was not there to take in the view. She was on a mission. She would not rest until she found the Flower. She had seen it on an earlier trek, blooming in the snow, but she worried that a snowstorm the night before might have finally put an end to its brave display in a winter landscape.

At long last, there it was. The Buttercup lifted its face from the snow, its brilliant yellow defying the odds, its sweet strong voice calling to Vicki loudly that it wanted to be made into a Flower Essence. Vicki crouched down beside the Flower and began.

Meanwhile down in the valley, the ski coach was flipping his lid. Green Hope Farm farm staff goddess Vicki had come of the ski trip as a math and science tutor for a collection of high school skiers. It was a break from her life in a dorm of fifty teenage boys and a chance to visit the Austrian Alps. Each dark December night she had held her scholar athletes’ noses to their computers. But each day, while her charges skied the Hintertux glacier, she hiked the mountains to her heart’s content. All had gone smoothly until now, for in this particular moment there was not a lot of harmony between her and the ski coach. Over and over again the coach texted, “WHERE ARE YOU?”

For goodness sake! She was BUSY! She had important work to do. The ski team and the plane would just have to wait!!!!

And so we received this lovely Flower Essence kindness of Vicki- and yes they made the plane!

Vicki found this Buttercup blooming in snowy Alps in the middle of December. It is significant that the Flower is a Buttercup. They are a Flower of Midsummer Night’s Eve. Buttercup’s affirmation is, I AM the eternal light of summer. And this Buttercup expressed this truth in a profound way, shining its light way beyond the season of a summer wildflower. It was still blooming just days before the Winter Solstice!

Since this Buttercup Flower Essence’s safe arrival back to Green Hope Farm, it has been supporting us to persevere through our long winter. It has helped us hold our light in dark times. Already the Angels have suggested it for many of you when circumstances in your life press in and you need support to be hold your light and feel the light of summer within you even as wintry events flood your life.

Today, Winter Buttercup from the Austrian Alps joins our collections ready for one and all. Thank’s to its clear strong voice and Vicki’s inner listening, perseverance AND willingness to put a Flower above a plane schedule, we have this Flower Essence ready for you all!
