The single video above shows in a very simple way how to make your own flower essences.  Why bother?

“Every flower bears a starry imprint.”  Paracelsus

Many subtle things happen for you while making and using flower essences.  Flowers represent the Divine Mystery of LOVE.  You may have heard the expression: God laughs in flowers.  Also one of my favorites that has been seen posted in many a garden public and private:

The Lord God planted a garden

In the first white days of the world,

And He set there an angel warden

In a garment of light unfurled.

The kiss of the sun for pardon,

The song of the birds for mirth,

One is nearer God’s heart in a garden

Than anywhere else on earth.

–Dorothy Frances Gurney in “Magic Gardens” by Corinne Heline, New Age Press 1944

A metaphysical principle states that all thought is creative.  Take that one step further with the principle that we can only think one thought at a time.  Next, God’s thoughts are real and eternal and are love.  Flowers bring us in tune with this reality as they are from the light.  As you stand still and look to the top or sides of a flower, softly focusing your attention, you may observe this light or aura.

When we work with flower essences we are working with God’s thoughts in spirit, manifested in form here in the physical.  Another way of saying this is that flowers are a manifestation of the light or angelic kingdoms.  We can think of flowers as angels manifest.

Another metaphysical principal we are working with is that God is all Good.  God has created every living thing as a unique manifestation, whether it is a snowflake, bird, or human.  Each is unique in some way.  Flowers are like that.  Each has its own vibrational signature even within its own species.  Roses have unique qualities such as peace and harmony within the same type of plant.  Because of these principles and unique mysterious qualities of the Divine we can tap into the subtle vibrations of a plant and bring that quality to our own being and consciousness.  As we do this we are lifted above the thought-form that caused our distress.

Because we can only think one thought at a time, and because we are connected with all that is, nature, God, and the universe we can utilize the vibration and light of the flower to join with our light and beingness and raise our frequencies.  In doing so we may harmonize our emotional body, which releases any energy that is not of a high vibration such as fear (stress), anxiety etc. which we know, over time, does not bring our birthright of Health.

Why flower essences? Part III

 

Part III

     To continue:  “Quite simply put, flowers heal” Dr. Edward Bach

     Just beginning to think about flowers as healers has an impact on your consciousness.  Whenever we can take a step back from our worries, aches, pains, fears, or sorrows and know help is at hand in the simplest of forms we have moved slightly out of a negative mind generated space to one a little more positive.  I’ve found that when I just sit in a beautiful nature spot or garden and just “be” for as little as 15 minutes a change will come over me.  Stress and worry will dissipate naturally as the breeze blows old thought -forms away.  If you will just sit and let your thoughts flow by, as when you meditate, and then sit a little longer, maybe 20 minutes it is very likely that you will feel an uplift or sense of peace.  If your mind keeps chattering about all of the things you need to do, just say, “alright, it will all get done better in harmony” just relax for a minute.  Very likely then you will smell a sweet fragrance you hadn’t noticed:  a flower’s perfume that with your mind and thoughts racing you hadn’t noticed or smelled.  Then, maybe an insect, bird or butterfly will land near you.  This is my favorite part of noticing the subtle shift in my own energy, when it is calm and gentle and harmless enough to attract these little beings.  This is the framework or space in which you can receive the subtle energies of flowers.  As we are in this gentle space of communion with nature  we relax, let go of stress and breathe.  Since well-being and love is our core energy we allow our higher-self to give us inspiration on what course to take.  Our intuition is enhanced and inspiring thoughts begin to stream in.  Yes, all of this from breathing deeply,  andrelaxing into a garden or nature.

Why flower essences? Part 2

To continue:

Why flower essences?  First, what is a flower essence?  It is the captured living essence of a flower.  It is the vibration of the flower and it’s consciousness.  With this in mind you can intuit that something different is going on in the use of flower essences than we are used to in the ordinary phenomenal world.  Yes, that is true.  Flower essences are a vibrational healing system discovered by Dr. Edward Bach in the early part of the 20th Century.  I encourage you to go to the resources section of this blog and click on Bach Centre for more background information on the subject.

The field of vibrational healing is the healing system of the future which is Now.

Flower essences are considered a complementary therapy to homeopathy and other natural healing remedies including spiritual healing.  Spiritual healing starts with the premise that we are connected to a loving source, or creator which has the quality of well-being, hence well-being is our own core state of being.  It is not too far a leap from this knowingness to the idea that a flower could help us, since God, good is everywhere present.

Remember, in our spiritual (metaphysical practice) we always begin with love.  We are love and have God within us.

When we start there. receiving the bond between the plant and human realms is easy to believe.  Just as every human is unique with certain qualities so are flowers unique.  They have a very high ethereal quality and vibration.

Love is inclusive.  When we include and accept flowers into our consciousness as beings of light we can begin to make the evolutionary consciousness leaps that expands our cosmology and world view to allow for God, good to be everywhere present and in expressions that are helpful and good.  Flowers live for appreciation and are teaching us the power of appreciation to help us in every aspect of our lives.  I have loved to watch the improvement, in health, prosperity, and a sense of caring,  of impoverished inner cities with the advent of community gardens.  When a plant or flower or tree is present and alive an area is uplifted.  As more people join together in making the gardens their lives begin to be uplifted also.

It is not much of a stretch for most people to believe in “flower power” as gardening is the number one most popular hobby in the United States.

When we open to the possibility of this Universe being extremely friendly with an abundance of helpers at so many levels and forms we can begin to open to our good as Divine children.

As Dr. Bach discovered, “Quite simply put, flowers heal.”

Why flower essences?

Remember, in our metaphysical and Spiritual practice we always begin with Love.  Love is the most powerful force in the universe.  Why flower essences?  Flowers are a Divine expression of Love and are a bridge to your well-being and health.

Traditionally, we’ve taken flowers to sit on a loved one’s bed side table to encourage health, not even knowing that more than their fragrance, beauty, and color, their very essence heals.  Flowers are from the light, the Angelic and Devic world of love.  Their beingness IS love-light.

The hit play, and then movie ,”Steel Magnolias” had the essence of flowers correct: Stength in beauty, love, gentleness, wisdom ,and humor, while loving life through joy and  all of its heartaches.  The Divine feminine (which is also contained within men) and embodies in women, is expressed as strenth in love with beauty, grace ,and sweet fragrance, like flowers.

With this in mind, you may begin to understand how flower essences work.  Their essence is from the light realms and work on a vibrational level.  They work with your emotions, thoughts, consciousness and body to attain balance and peace.  We know from many recent medical reports that the root cause of most illness or dis-ease is stress.  So it follows that when you attain peace, your natural well-being surfaces and health along with it.

When we have peace and balance in our emotions our own immune system can heal us naturally.  When you use flower essences you are mentally telegraphing the angelic and devic kingdom for specific help.  Angels are in the spirit world all around us and the Devas are on the physical plane though just not visible to most humans as their vibration is so high.
