Flower essences: now better than ever

Flower essences: now better than ever

We are accustomed to addressing symptoms by supressing them, rather than healing their underlying metaphysical causation.

Flower essences are a profound form of energy medicine and have long been part of the tradition of earth-based and Shamanic healing. For millennia, healers of all types have accessed and utilized the intelligence inherent in nature for a variety of purposes, particularly personal transformation.

From ancient times in Egypt, Greece and Rome to the Aborigines of Australia, civilizations around the world have revered the power of flowers and used flower remedies for emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Paracelsus, the 15th century botanist and physician, wrote specifically about collecting dew from flowering plants, diluting it and using the liquid to treat imbalances in his patients.


The new flower essences 

In recent times, this ancient modality has experienced a significant evolution, becoming one of the most potent forms of natural healing available for assisting us to meet the unique challenges of our times. As the speed of change escalates and our individual and collective challenges intensify, it is time to allow nature to guide us toward solutions to our most perplexing problems.

Flower essence practitioners are doing pioneering work in the fields of human health and spirituality. They are at the leading edge of new thought and are laying the foundation for future science.

The traditional flower essence remedies are still effective for their intended purposes; however, flower essences holding new patterns of consciousness provide solutions at a level that has not previously existed. They can assist us in addressing challenges we have never before faced and support our development into more evolved, spiritually mature and vital human beings.


How flower essences work

Each flower essence has a specific purpose. When you take a flower essence (on or under the tongue), the “energy signature” it holds enters your subtle energy system and is translated into the physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual levels, creating shifts over time. Your level of sensitivity determines how quickly a flower essence has an effect on your subtle energy system and your ability to notice that effect. To increase your sensitivity, adopt higher nutritional practices — engage in body-based spiritual practices (e.g., tai chi, yoga, etc.), meditate, receive body work/massage and spend more time in nature.


Healing versus suppression

We are accustomed to addressing symptoms by suppressing them, rather than healing their underlying metaphysical causation. Ultimately, to experience health and well-being, we must heal imbalances at their point of origin within our consciousness, i.e., imprints from past experiences, such as childhood trauma. We must also make the requisite life changes to align our lives with the impulses of our souls. All flower essences address underlying causation to some extent. The new flower essences take our inner healing to unprecedented levels.


Choosing the correct flower essences

Many flower essences are available on the market, with a variety of purposes. An example of a new flower essence is Rose Angel Face, which produces a flower essence that assists in transcending the Piscean dynamics of co-dependent giving and conditional love in order to anchor the Aquarian dynamic of extension of self through unconditional love.

The result is the experience of authentic intimacy and oneness — essential aspects of evolved consciousness. It is especially useful for exposing what we require to heal in order to overcome patterns of co-dependent giving and/or withholding. If we are experiencing any form of lack in our lives, it assists us in transforming the perceptions that are keeping us from the miracle of receiving.


How to choose a flower essence

1. Decide at what level you wish to work. When choosing a brand of flower essences, understand that each brand has a different purpose and intended level of effect. Some address physical imbalances, others work on the emotional/mental issues underlying physical imbalances, and still others go deeper, working at the spiritual level. Working at the spiritual level allows you to achieve authentic resolution and ultimate transcendence of your challenges.

2. Assess flower essence quality. There is great diversity in flower essence quality. One of the key factors is the land on which the flowers are grown. The most potent flowers are produced on land that is chemical-free, energetically and physically balanced, and maintained at its highest level. The consciousness of the flower essence practitioner is also critical.

3. Choose flower essences that support your highest unfolding at this time. Use your intuition, supported by the names of the flower essences, their purpose statements and corresponding photos, and/or use muscle testing or dowsing with a pendulum.

We have become accustomed to arduous and complicated approaches to personal growth. Though our evolutionary leaps can be challenging, our personal growth can be simplified and accelerated. Such is the gift of flowers.

The ancient Maya called the New Age that began on December 21, 2012, the Age of “Itza,” which means, among many things, “peace and flowers.” It is time for us to blossom. Let us now choose perfected flowers to guide our unfolding of the peace and beauty within.
