During these wild,, challenging, transformative and profound times, your questions on email remain on point. I am grateful for the Angels who sit with me and all of us humans on email as we answer your queries- It’s learning all round for us.
QUESTION: I am an Italian flower therapist and a part of a study group of Archetypes and Greek Goddesses. I am interested in your Asphodel Flower Essence. How did this collection happen? How did you prepare the Essence and how do you use the Essence? What is your stabilizer? Is it possible to receive it in Italy?
ANSWER: We would love to have you work with our Asphodel Flower Essence– We send orders to the EU every week! Creating and working with this collection from Crete has been a magic experience from start to finish.
I have been working with the Elementals/ Nature Spirits here at this farm for 30 years and my children, now adults, have been part of this from infancy. We create gardens and Flower Essences as guided by the Angels and as made manifest by the Elementals-
My son Ben felt called to go to Crete. My family has been working with the Elementals/ Nature Spirits here at this farm for 30 years and my children, now adults, have been part of this from infancy. We create gardens and Flower Essences as guided by the Angels and as made manifest by the Elementals. We also go where they call us and Ben was called to Crete.. Once on this sacred island, he found himself on a journey around the island with the Elementals guiding him which Flowers to pick. Then the Elementals of these Flowers worked with the Elementals here to transfer the vibrational wisdom of the Flowers from the Flowers into water and then into a stabilized mother Essence.
On meeting these extremely vibrant new Flower Essences, I found myself on a journey to learn more about Crete- I ended up reading many books and sitting with the Flower Essences for many hours. I felt as excited about this collection of Flower Essences as I have ever felt about any collection we have made- It felt like all the collections we’ve from all over the world were leading to this collection.
Here is a link to a longer description of this collection that the Elementals want us to share with people about Matriarchy versus Patriarchy and why Crete is so special.
For sending our stock bottles out into the world, we use a stabilizer that the Elementals led us to make from Red Shiso, perilla frutescens This plant has made an enormous difference to the radiance of our Flower Essences.
FOLLOW UP QUESTION FROM SAME WOMAN: Do you use the Dr. Bach’s method of preparation? Could you please send me some information about how you prepare the essence? Can you tell me more about Red Shiso?
(I also attached a copy of a document about how we grow Red Shiso that I am happy to share with anyone who wants it- Just email us!)
About whether we use the Dr. Bach method, I do not know what the Dr. Bach method is. When I first began making Flower Essences 30 years ago, the Angels asked me not to read any other writing about Flower Essences but to look to them, the Flowers and the Elementals for all guidance.
I have been doing this ever since. As far as the specifics of how I make Flower Essences. I put the Flowers in a clear glass bowl of water on a sunny day. I have a specific prayer I say and I ask for the support of all Angels and Elementals connected to the Flower. I use the blossoms that the Angels and Elementals choose, and I leave the Essences in the sun for the amount of time that the Angels and Elementals want me to leave them in the sun. It varies from Flower to Flower.
The high vibration of our Flower Essences is a testament to the Angels and Elementals, so I follow their guidance to the letter no matter how unusual. It has been an incredible adventure!
QUESTION: Do you sell stock bottles or treatment bottles?
ANSWER: Our Flower Essences are stock concentrates so you can make dosage/treatment bottles from them. We use our Red Shiso as a stabilizer for these dosage bottles, but the dosage bottles can also be made with brandy and water or water, though with water they will not last long and need to be refrigerated.
QUESTION: How many drops and how often should I take the Flower Essences? Can I combine Flower Essences together?
ANSWER: Because Flower Essences are vibrational information but not chemical, a little bit of the Flower Essences has the same information as a lot so a few drops is usually ample.
Frequency is more important. If you put the Essences in a water bottle to sip all day, then you get the healing information every time you take a sip and your electrical system gets frequent chances to read the information and learn from it, eventually making the wisdom of the Flower Essences your own wisdom.
All Essences can be combined much like bouquets of Flowers, and our Flower Essences can be happily combined! With big bouquets of Flower Essences, if there is information in an Essence you do not need, your electrical system will just ignore it.
QUESTION: I have a thing I do and need help to move into a better way. I have a tendency towards nervous system exhaustion and an inability to process hard (sad) emotions. My car battery dies often and every time it’s a wake up call that my battery isn’t charged and that my nervous system is inflamed with unprocessed emotions.
ANSWER: The Angels want all of us to understand that many of the emotions that are frying our batteries right now are not our emotions to process but other people’s emotions. As they note, “Just because you have picked up the emotion, the emotion is not necessarily YOUR emotion.” They suggest we spend EVEN MORE time getting clear what is our job to process emotionally and what isn’t. A lot is not our work. They also remind us to take our Golden Armor as well as create a habit of clearing our energetic field of everything that does not belong to us.
The Angels note that each of us is needed right now to help our planet shift gears and to help humanity rise up and become more loving and more aware of our oneness and Divinity, BUT this does not mean all the work is ours to do. We each have a part to play but not ALL the parts. It is very hard for those who have been earnestly endeavoring to awaken others for many years with healing work to truly get that they are not responsible for the entire globe.
The Angels encourage, “It is time to let go and let God. When you feel fried or weary, let grace carry each of you for a bit. Try to be Grace not Atlas. Shouldering your share but no more will not cause your life to go up in flames. It may even help you deal better with the challenges that were coming anyways.”
The Flower Essences that the Angels suggest:
Amaryllis for helping you know when your battery is low before it actually dies.
Yellow Water Lily to help you process deeply felt emotions that belong to you while feeling safe, calm and contained by Divinity.
Redwood will help your electrical system rev down and ground- like seriously GROUND.
Joe Pye Weed is your energetic reminder that you are not Atlas, required to solve all problems or process all emotions.
Balance in a Blue Moon is to support you in riding the energy waves of this crazy, demanding, magical and once in 10,000 blue moons time on Earth.
Effort & Grace– You have the Effort covered and we have the Grace. This Essence reminds you it’s a balanced partnership!
QUESTION: I have had ongoing pain in my right hip – totally excruciating. I have done all the proper medical things and am not seeking medical advice. Nothing is “wrong” on xrays= 3 sets of them. I have also done spinal decompression and acupuncture. Something is up with the energy in my hip and trying to get my attention.
Anyway, it’s the right hip so it may be more masculine in nature. Likely related to lack of male/father foundation and stability in early childhood. (My dad was there, just maybe it wasn’t that stable.) I had an intuitive tell me that the child there is saying “you never taught me to trust myself.”
I suppose right hip is about moving forward. I am wondering if it is about an incoherence within about how I am moving forward…I love to run, and with my hip like this I cannot even go for a long walk, never mind run anywhere. So in essence there is also a challenge with freedom to do what it is I really want – which is run. So, I want to ask about essences related to the above and for general pelvic foundation if that makes sense. I appreciate any thoughts you have about flower friends!!
ANSWER I am impressed with the in-depth work you have done on this- I would have followed the same course of thinking about father issues/right side as well as consider the issues of your right to move forward and your inner child feeling she had not been taught to trust you could stand on her own two feet. I would second that this is, as you suggest, a core issue- With the intensity of the energies and specifically the pull of very deep old karma to be released once and for all, this hip pain resonates as something really deep and old and profound that is getting dredged up for release- and that you ARE releasing- only it is taking some time (as old wounds often do).
Planetary energies (despite appearances to the contrary) are dissolving patriarchy and returning us to more humane values for ourselves and the planet, but we all have our wounds from patriarchy and it is painful to clear these.
I am just glad for the GRACE we are receiving right now to do this clearing. There are more Angels helping humanity than ever. They suggest people look to the Venus Garden for support with this release/deep healing- ones including but not limited to, The Alignment Garden, Boundless, Effort & Grace, The Eight Garden, Ruby Moon Hyacinth Bean.- The Venus Garden is so much about profound transformation with the Grace of Divinity-
I asked the Angels for any other suggestions for your hip situation- They also suggested Painkiller Plant, Flow Free, Redwood– also the Family River trio of Bloodroot, Black Currant and Borage– I got the feeling this is a big release of patriarchal stuff carried by your father’s side of your lineage- which you already feel- something about core unworthiness- back to that issue of your right to move forward when one is wonderfully human versus “patriarchal perfect.”
The Crete ones are also so helpful with these issues- Dittany, Crown Daisy. White Hedge Nettle, Yellow Mullein from Crete, Asphodel!
QUESTION: Is there a list of 2019 essences yet? I have been on the computer and not found one.
ANSWER: I am just beginning to make new ones for 2019 as spring has come slowly to the farm and the Flowers are just beginning to call out to be made into new Flower Essences- Sarah is in China and then on to Taiwan this month, and it will be interesting to see if anything calls to her- It is always amazing what new gems are “found” during each growing season.
It felt like the Snake’s Head Fritillary and the Goldenseal needed to be introduced before the fall, so that is why I wrote the blogs and introduced them earlier than when we usually introduce new Flower Essences- Well really the Elementals felt they needed to be introduced, and THEY wrote the blogs! 😉
FOLLOW UP QUESTION: Just spent time on web. Can’t find Snake’s Head Fritillary anywhere. No response to searches and don’t see it on lists. Sorry, but still need an assist finding it.
ANSWER: Please don’t beat yourself up my friend! This is the problem with Google search engine: they update our site when they feel like it! (and it is sporadic that they feel so inclined, so our search engine is often out of date) And if you have had problems getting on this blog, blow a kiss to the Ukranian bots that like to mess with wordpress blogs like ours!
QUESTIONS: Can you suggest one of two Essences for each of these issues? 1) Emotional/mental garbage’ that is causing physical illnesses ANSWER: ALL EGO CONTRACTS NULL & VOID 2) Generational baggage that is creating new obstacles repeatedly, despite our desires and attempts to move past and out of present circumstances.ANSWER: ALL EGO CONTRACTS NULL & VOID or FAMILY RIVER TRIO 3) Absorbing physical illnesses from others in the environment ANSWER: GOLDEN ARMOR 4) Physical issues that are directly related to the caregiver burnout (eg premature aging, menstrual changes, adrenal fatigue, sugar cravings etc) that I think would start to reverse with proper care once caregiving is done. ANSWER: CARETAKER, HESPERIDES’ GIFT 5)Alignment of the self, including chakras. ANSWER: THE ALIGNMENT GARDEN
QUESTION: Can I use Transition if I’m having a hard time with caregiving (both the actual situation and anxiety over the ‘after’). I’ve been in it for 3 years, and admittedly it’s gotten very tough and restrictive. Although I’ve developed skills to deal with it, I’m still not entirely coping with the loss in what I had and loss in movement forward.
ANSWER: Transition feels very supportive. I also think Omey Island is a Godsend for constrained circumstances. If you look at the longer descriptions of the whole Irish collection, there is a long conversation with Overlighting Angel of Omey Island which is very powerful. With the worry about the after situation, what about Coral Pink Rose and Don’t Worry-Bee Happy.
QUESTION: When one gets a Custom Mix and make a spray bottle, can I just add other individual essences into that spray bottle too?
QUESTION: My cat doesn’t like vinegar so avoids the Flower Essences when I put them in his food or water.
ANSWER: You can also rub a drop or two on his paw pads or ear tips if he does not like the taste- in food also works.
QUESTION: I’ve read somewhere that it is not advised to use more than a few essences as it may cause conflict, not generate the required results or trigger a healing crisis instead. Your recommendations sound wonderful, but I do worry about making him worse. I think he’s been exposed to negative human patterns for too long, and I don’t know if trying to ‘dislodge’ him from that (through essences) might make him worse, seeing as he already seems to have a fear of moving forward.
ANSWER: I understand your concern and want to reassure you that Flower Essences will not precipitate a healing crisis in your cat nor are a lot of Flower Essences too many. First let me link you to a blog I wrote about how many Flower Essences a person or animal can work with Flower Essences
Second, Flower Essences speak the language of animals- including cats! They only offer positive information which cats love and appreciate- The negative human patterns are the problem not the high information of the Essences. Your cat can only tune up to a higher frequency from the information on offer in Flower Essences- They are not going to have their vibration lowered by Flower essences ever. Higher vibrations don’t dislodge anything- they simply replace a low vibration with a higher one much as a piano out of tune that is tuned up by a piano tuner wouldn’t bring about a release of bad music when it is tuned up.
FOLLOW UP QUESTION: I didn’t mean that Essences could lower his vibration. I mean that he has been stuck in unhelpful human patterns for so long, that he may resist moving to more positive vibrations. So the concern is that being exposed to too much positive information may confuse and upset him. We have seen him react in fear and paranoia to changes that are meant to benefit him or become ill from stress.
ANSWER: It has not been my experience that animals ever find Flower Essences too much- I think for animals, Flower Essences are often like an oasis in the desert as they finally are getting exactly the information they need to solve their problems in their own way in their own timeframe- and there is no issue of too much positive information as the animals choose how to integrate the vibration of the Essences themselves in their own divine way- It is not something done to them as with chemical remedies.
Flower Essences are not a man made creation or tool. Yes, people are involved in creating them, but their gifts come from NATURE. This is one profound reason why Flower Essences work so well for animals. Animals are one with nature and experience things from the natural world as part of them. They experience Flower Essences as just what they were looking for in their world and not something alien but more a remembering of their essential nature.
QUESTION: If we get a custom blend to be spritzed around the house, invariably not all the targeted issues/scenarios will apply to everyone or apply forever. I’m wondering about the effects about continued exposure.
ANSWER: When a space is spritzed, people and animals will sort through the electrical data and only take on board that which would help them- much as we might go to a lecture and listen to the lecturer but not the students talking in the back- We all filter vibrational information every day in this manner- It is just relatively rare that we get such good information from such wise friends in such a small little bottle-
QUESTION: We have started homeopathic remedies as well as Flower Essences. Some of these will contain common ingredients that are used in essences. Should I be concerned about that, about exposure or ingestion to too much of the same herb?
ANSWER: Homeopathic remedies are chemical in nature but Flower Essences are not. This means Flower Essences will not so conflict with homeopathics nor will you get too much of the chemical ingredient found in homeopathics. For example, there is no chemical/plant matter of Sage in Sage Flower Essence.
QUESTION: What would you use for cord cutting?
ANSWER: All Ego Contracts Null and Void is excellent for cord cutting – When it is from family members, consider the Family River Trio. I also like Golden Armor for this. It was created at Archangel Michael’s behest and has proven an incredible remedy for cord cutting and protection of all kinds.
QUESTION: Are these stable in the heat? Do the Flower Essences need to be refrigerated. Sounds like our house that can get up in the 70’s or 80’s in the summer may be too hot.
ANSWER: There is no need to put them in the fridge even in a warm house- The overheating I would be concerned with would be more like someone who leaves their Flower Essences in their car in the Mojave desert for six months kind of overheating! 😉 So room temperature even in the 70’s should be fine!
