Insight into the Personality of Flower Essences
Recently I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, who is well versed in the energetics, therapeutics and chemistry of essential oils. We were talking about flower essences, and she was feeling a bit frustrated because there seems to be no hard & fast rule that this flower is for that purpose, like you would find if you studied aromatherapy or herbalism –different sources seem to have different information on the same plant when it comes to the energetics & esoteric uses of flower essences.
As humans, we are all same Genus & Species – Homo sapiens. Just because we share the same genus & species, does not mean that we share all of the same characteristics, qualities, talents, personality quirks, gifts, fears, aspirations, inspiration, belief system, lifestyle, taste, style, creative process, emotional intelligence, spiritual connection, etc.
With flowers & flower essences, I believe there is so much that goes into developing a single flower (or group of flowers, in the case of a flower essence) that determine the specific personality of that essence.
The land where it was grown, the soil, the climate, the energy of the people that live nearby, the person’s intention who was creating the essence, the astrology of the day, what was happening in the world at the time of its flowering, what did the bee whisper to the flower as it nuzzled & rolled around inside and gathered pollen, what was the story that blew in on the breeze, or the information contained in the raindrops that landed on the petals the day before harvest? Was it sung to by crickets at night, or peepers? Did it grow through cracks in the sidewalk in the city? Did it grow under overhead powerlines, near an airport? Where and under what conditions was the water sourced that is being used?
There are hundreds of opportunities for the world around us to shape and change us. We are changed by stories & music that we hear, by encounters that we have, by dancing in the rain, staring at the stars or spending a morning sun-gazing. I believe that flowers are no different. They each have their own individual story to tell, and the nuances of their energy as it meets your energy, co creates something that has not existed before…its geometric perfection meets yours, cellular energy is transformed, spiritual understanding is birthed, trauma shifts, awareness awakens, pain arises, letting go happens, unbounded joy courses through your veins, alignment with your soul purpose starts to happen, a deeper level of perfection and connection start to take place.
