Questions from Yesterday’s Email


Here are a couple of email questions from yesterday’s email, two about dogs and one about specific Essence suggestions for certain situations. At the close of this blog, webmaster Ben explains how to follow this blog i.e. get a notice when I have posted a new one!

Q: “I have a maltese/yorkie mix that has terrible separation anxiety with me. She was traumatized (and attacked) a few times when she was a puppy so now does not know how to play with other dogs and gets very afraid around them. What Essences would be helpful for her?

In addition, how do I know how much to give my dog and for how long? Do you find that the essences permanently help heal past emotional wounding and traumas?”

A: ” Anxiety is a very soothing Flower Essence combination remedy that can help with the overwhelming anxiety your maltese/yorkie feels when you are not around. Abandonment & Abuse can help your maltese/yorkie release past trauma and her related PTSD from the attacks. Separation and Golden Armor are two others to consider. The Golden Armor helps a traumatized animal (or person) feel buffered from situations that trigger PTSD. Separation specifically brings information to situations of separation anxiety. I also like Arbor Garden for animals learning to socialize with other dogs as it helps them feel safe and also feel an underlying sense of harmony in whatever community they find themselves in.”

As far as the other questions- This was my answer:

“The basic tenant of Flower Essences is that they offer people and animals course corrections for their electrical systems- road maps to solve their electrical issues/glitches/tangles. People and animals literally copy this information to make permanent changes.

It often takes a traumatized animal longer than other animals to learn how to hold the electrical changes so frequent reminders from the Flower Essences are helpful. However Flower Essences do give animals and people the opportunity to make permanent healing shifts.”

I always like to note how wonderfully animals respond to Flower Essences so I also said, “Animals love Flower Essences and use them with such clarity- I often wish adults were as adept with them as animals and children are.

As far as the specifics of giving these to your maltese/yorkie, you could put a few drops in her food or water a couple times a day- you could also spritz her with a mix of the Essences in water (a plant mister will work or a 2 ounce spritzer bottle from us). She will pay attention to the information because electrical energies, both positive and negative, are how animals experience the world- and all of these methods of application offer the information of the Essences to her electrical system.  

It varies from animal to animal how long an animal needs the remedies- You can stop giving them to her when you feel she is doing better and see if she can hold her own without the reminder of the information of the Essences.” 

Another question received from another GHF friend was in a similar vein,
Q: “How long should my dog be on the Essences?”

A: “People and animals can learn all they need to learn from some Essences after taking them just a few times- Other times if the situation is more complex/evolving and the Flower Essences are layered in their strengths (such as with our combination remedies like Golden Armor and with many wise individual Flowers like Sweet Pea or Passion Flower), it can be beneficial to take the Essences for longer-

For example, if your dog is nervous in certain situations and the Anxiety helps your dog learn how to relax in these situations, he might not need Anxiety again until some other situation that makes him nervous crops up or some different stress occurs in which case he might take a sort of refresher course by being exposed to the Essence again. This will help him learn how to let go of his Anixety in a variety of situations. 

As far as when to stop giving your beloved the Essences- Sometimes people figure out when to stop giving the Essences to their animals by stopping giving them and seeing if the animals have learned the information so well that they don’t need a reminder- If the behavior that prompted you to give the Essences in the first place doesn’t reoccur- no need to keep giving the Essence- if it does, your beloved may need the info for longer- Like any other learning situation- some learn faster than others and some need more refresher courses than others.”  


Another GHF friend asked,
Q: “I’m looking for essences to help release old anger, move through blockages to the higher self and help dealing with difficult, triggering personalities.”

My answer would probably be different each time I was asked these questions because there are so many that could help with these issues but these are the ones that came to mind yesterday when answering this question.

A: “For releasing deep and old angers, here are some possibilities-
Flow Free
Mary Queen of Scots Rose
Bee Balm
Christmas Bush 
If the angers are family of origin related, the
Family River trio of Black Currant, Bloodroot and Borage are wonderful for release and healing of these kinds of wounds-

For moving through blockages to the higher self
Carry Less
All Ego Contracts Null & Void
The Angels created a set called
Releasing Blocks and Limits for this reason

In dealing with difficult triggering personalities- 
Golden Armor
Rattlesnake Master
Eyes of Mary
All Ego Contracts Null & Void would also be good for this- and Flow Free! 
Some other ones to check out:
Fendler’s Groundsel from Colorado- these ones from Colorado are big picture ones- this one for unity consciousness among people who disagree- certainly a very complex topic for humanity right now
Artichoke– for sanctuary and space from conflict -I love this one!

Why Flower Essences Matter & More about the Need for Energetic Sanctuary

As the vibration continues to rise, dramatic situations intensify, ever reminding us to ground in the sanctuary of our hearts. Because everything that is occurring is first an energetic circumstance that then plays out in the material world, Flower Essences are an extremely important tool for right now.

Here is a message I received from my “upstairs” guidance recently when asking for advice about how to explain to folks about the need to take energetic care of their Flower Essences:

“Humanity is going through many electrical shifts. Mechanical and chemical tools do not address electrical shifts. This is why Flower Essences matter. They are electrical tools not mechanical or chemical tools so they can efficiently and effectively solve electrical concerns. They need to be treated with reverence. They have waited in the wings for their time. This IS their time. They will do what is needed to bring necessary electrical changes into manifestation in everyone’s electrical systems. They need respect not so much because they can hurt but because they cannot hurt and because they can help when so much else cannot help.

People are casual about things they need most: air, food, water, divine light and love. They often come to Flower Essences with the same casual attitude just when they need them most. It is good you treat all Green Hope Farm Flower Essences with care and suggest others do so as well. People will look back at this time differently. They will see the gifts of Flowers and their Essences were in plain sight yet few saw this. It will be like one of those gothic stories in which the heroine misses the obvious- doesn’t see her circumstances clearly and doesn’t choose until almost too late to do what she needs to do. Keep focusing people on the wonderful, practical, effective, life preserving, life enhancing and life changing nature of Flower Essences. Keep reminding people to take care of their Flower Essences. What they do with this information is on their watch.

Just as Divinity exists in the midst of people and calls to them and many do no hear this call or open their hearts, many will not notice the gift of Flower Essences. This is not your concern. Your concern is taking Flower Essences seriously and offering them to those who have woken up to their gifts. Sometimes the answers are in plain sight and few see this. This is the case with Flower Essences.

The vibration has hit a level in which most people feel something is going on, but for those who do not quiet their minds and listen to their hearts, it is going to be hard not to just go on with the patterned response of doing more of the same solutions that did not work. For those who have somehow noticed something different and experienced something that has shown them there is another way to proceed, this noticing will be a saving grace and will lead them forward to tools like Flower Essences and an understanding of the energetics of a changing reality.

It is funny and quite wonderful that so often it is the animals in people’s lives that show them the gap in the curtain of a mechanical and chemical world view. The electrical sensitivity of the animals shows them an alternative way to proceed. It is quite heartening and all humanity should be grateful to the animals for this.”

So in response to the many questions about care for Flower Essences, I would like to say that because they are energetic and hold energetic information, our best bet about caring for our Essences is to energetically care for the space where we keep our Essences. The great thing about this solution is that it allows us to live in energetic sanctuary at the same time as our Essences. Additionally, we can use our Flower Essences to create this sanctuary by putting Essences in a spritzer bottle with water and energetically clearing the space we live in by spritzing this space with the Flower Essence in water solution. Here is more about spritzing.

I encourage you to energetically clear the space you live and work in each day for your own sake as well as the sake of your Flower Essences. Because there is so much going on energetically right now, many people are responding to this shift in vibration in dramatic ways that often times feel particularly aggressive. This means that creating sanctuary and routinely cleansing this sanctuary is more important than ever both for our Essences and for ourselves.

The Angels went so far as to create a Sanctuary Flower Essence combination remedy last year to address this concern. There are many Flower Essences that help clear a space including Comfrey, Violet Transmuting Flame Violet, and Flow Free and there are many that help maintain the energetic integrity of the space including Golden Armor, Teasel, Pennyroyal and Wing Span of the Senses. Check our the topics of Protection, Cleansing and Boundaries for more Flower Essence suggestions.

At the close of our long description of our Irish Flower Essences is a General Template for Land Clearing. Scroll to the end of this document and you will find this template. This technique works equally well for clearing an inside space as an outdoor area. In fact, any request you make to the Angels and Elementals to energetically clear any place will be honored. My template has certain specifics that I have found improve the efficacy of energetic cleaning. However, the Angels and Elementals would much rather clear your space however you ask for clearing than have you live in a pocket of heavy, stuck energy. Why do you need to ask for this clearing? The Angels and Elementals must respect your free will and energetic cleansing happens only through extremes of weather and geological change unless you get involved and ask for a more gentle cleansing.

Recently I have been working with a wonderful and earnest vet to help her keep her inventory of Flower Essences clear and vibrant. While she was keeping the Essences away from the computers in the office, she had not thought about other particulars of a vet’s office and why energetic clearing and protection was so necessary.

People come to a vet’s office with their ailing, beloved animal friends. The animals are going to soak up any good vibration in the office to help them feel better including the high energy information of the Flower Essences on the shelves. The people visiting a vet’s office are often releasing much emotional energy of an intense, confusing and dense nature. They too will tap into the Flower Essences on the shelves. Because absorbing our dense electrical energies is part of the animals’ service to humanity, they will absorb as much of their people’s heavy energy as they can. However, there will still be a lot of heavy vibrational energy left over. As you can see, there is a lot of energetic activity at a vet’s office!

If the people working in a vet’s office could see the energy left behind, they would do the energy clearing without fail each day. Without this clearing the space gets denser and denser with sorrows, fears and other dense energies to the point that of course our animals don’t want to go to the vets nor does it feel like a sparkling serene place for the animals or veterinary staff to be. Flower Essences can help with specific issues animals are feeling but will get drained off of their information quickly if the office remains full of heavy energies and they are the only candle in the dark there to assist the caring vets with the energetic work of the office.

There are many spaces where this kind of energetic issue is a serious concern. Dentists have the highest suicide rate of any group in the country. I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of heavy, dense energy dentists work in as most of us leave a lot of emotional energy at the dentist’s office when our teeth (representing the very roots of our lives) are cleaned. Doctors’ offices are the same as are many other places. Any building where people congregate could benefit from being cleansed.

What to do about all this? We can all help by clearing these spaces before our own visits to the vet’s, dentist, doctor’s or other space where we know a lot is going on. When you routinely clear your own home in the morning, visualize clearing another space too. We can clean up the messes we have created! Excellent tools are in our hands and helpers more helpful and loving than we can understand are with us!

A Report from Hotel New Hampshire

This one is for all those folks out there who have survived another holiday season. Kudos to you my friends.

Here at Hotel New Hampshire the last two guests will check out today. No doubt it will be after they leave sixteen more dirty dishes in the sink, but nonetheless, it will be a bittersweet moment.

I love all the guests at Hotel New Hampshire. I love being innkeeper to the motley crew that fill the beds. I love their noise, their games, their intensity about Whist which spills over from the games themselves to many days of discussion about the probability of certain hands, their music, their rough and tumble. I love the whole scene. They can even make puzzling assembly into a contact sport.


However….. this year I was humbled by the hoards in a completely unexpected arena of innkeeping: dining services. After thirty five years in the kitchens here at Hotel New Hampshire, it was a challenge to feed my guests.
Once upon a time there was one guest who had special dietary restrictions. This year every guest spoke to me in advance of necessary dietary requirements and the mindset behind their food regimes. Several spoke of gluten issues. One explained food combining with venn diagrams . Others outlined the finer points of their vegan diets. Some spoke of a corn/dairy/ white flour/ sugar issues. Some desired red meat if not combined with grains. Others wanted whole grains but only certain kinds of grain. Fish seemed to be okay for some but not others. One person said they would check out from Hotel New Hampshire if branade, a french dish combining salt cod with heavy cream and olive oil was not served. Others abhorred the thought of cream passing their lips and asked me to stock almond and hemp milk. Dairy in general was a hot topic. Embraced by some and shunned by others. Kale seemed good except for those who loathed it. Sausage was a no go unless made without pork, beef or poultry, except for those who wanted pork breakfast sausage each day. In light of these conflicting requests, I decided to prepare the masses for menu changes and plead for mercy as I scrambled to think of what to serve each beloved guest.

I texted my expected guests to talk about food items I thought met the requirements.

Big mistake. Big.

The texts that flooded in shattered any illusions I had that one or two foods were acceptable to all the arriving guests. After this barrage of information, I wasn’t even sure water worked for everyone.

Did I run for cover at this point and sensibly give people vouchers for MacDonald’s and tell them the kitchen was closed? No, instead I dove deeper into the quagmire of my own creation and texted them specific menu ideas.

This was a red cape to many bulls.

My soon to arrive guests took to the phones to respond to my sample menus. From near and far the traditionalists weighed in that possible items like roasted beet soup in acorn squash or grain loaf with mushroom tamari gravy were not going to cut it. Roast beef, yorkshire pudding topped off with English trifle LIKE ALWAYS was the cry from the hearts of the traditionalists.

I felt a bit of a pang then. I had been ready to serve sawdust grain loaf to please the masses, but here were beloved house guests pleading for heavy cream and butter as usual. I hadn’t expected to hear from them. I thought they would at least pretend to agree that sawdust grain loaf was better for our health. In fact, I had banked on it and had made the loaf already.

I ate said loaf by myself for six meals in a row. Yum. Yum.

After this menu hoopla, I decided there was no solution but to serve everything. Everything I could think of and more that is. Think groaning tables of side dishes with sticky notes giving ingredient lists.

For the last month, I have plunged into each meal determined to offer the usual Dickensian fare, the gluten free baked goods, the roasted root vegetables, the kale salads, the seaweed, the tempeh, the tofu. And yes, the rice. Each day I have made an enormous pot of rice. Rice was the one food we agreed on. I suspect Grace now thinks of Grandma’s house as the House of Rice. She runs into the kitchen each morning and asks for a big bowl before we begin our mornings together.

And what have our mornings been this last month? A picture is worth a thousand words. It takes a lot of trips to the grocery store to feed vegan, meat eating, paleolithic, food combining, white food free, sugar free, junk food loving, dairy free, butter and bacon loving beloveds all at the same time.
