A Flower Essence Approach to Increased Immunity: Cleansing our Etheric, Mental, Emotional and Physical Bodies

The following blog offers one way to think about Flower Essences and improved immunity. While this blog includes a description of the different energy bodies that compose our energy systems, this article on the resource page of the website goes into more detail.

Flower Essences give us energetic information that help our energy systems raise their vibrations. Once we make the vibrational information of a Flower Essence our own through exposure to the Flower Essence’s wisdom, our electrical systems maintain this higher, lighter, better feeling vibration and have an easier time rebuffing the lower vibrational energies like illnesses that challenge this vibration. But why is this so?

Our energy systems want us to be well and want us to maintain this state of wellness. Our energy systems like Flower Essences because they help us both tune up our energy system to optimum wellness and also clear out any energies that would derail this process. This tune up and cleanse skill set make Flower Essences a particularly useful healing tool.

Raising the vibration of our energy systems to be well and maintain wellness is a complex process. As one area of our energy system rises in vibration, it puts pressure on other areas to also rise in vibration to a higher rate so the whole system can work in harmony. A lot of this work is transforming dense, heavy vibrations into higher energies that can hold more light. This is one of Flower Essences great skills: they show us how to take the low vibration expression of a certain energy and raise it to its highest vibrational level. Transforming hopelessness into hope would be one example of this.

Flower Essences not only give examples of how to raise the vibration of energies, but they also move into all the energy bodies of our energy system to move out old stuck energies which do not serve our light systems. This blog is primarily about how Flower Essences work in the many energy bodies of our energy system to perform these roles.

To take a step back, each of our energy systems is not just a physical body but a complex overlapping reality of many different energy bodies. The three “subtle” energy bodies I discuss today are the etheric, emotional and mental bodies. These three energy bodies overlap with our physical body while our other energetic bodies existing at a greater distance from our physical bodies.

In this blog, I am going to talk about what gets stored in each of these four bodies and how introducing the information of Flower Essences into these energy bodies improves our health and immunity.

If you are wondering how on earth all these energy bodies co-exist or work together or if they are even real, here is one experience you might have had that demonstrates their existence. Have you ever walked into a dark room and known without seeing anything that someone else was in the room? What happened is that your subtle bodies bumped into the other person’s subtle bodies before your physical bodies interacted. This happened because your subtle bodies extend out from your physical body.

As far as how these bodies work…… For thirty years I have availed myself to many conversations with the Angels about these bodies, all of which make me most grateful that they understand them better than me and know which Flower Essences will help which energy body cleanse and heal.

But in the interest of explaining Flower Essences and enhanced immunity, I am going to work my way through an explanation of each energy body by discussing my own experience with one lower vibration challenge I faced, and how Flower Essences helped each of my energy bodies heal this issue.

The lower vibration energy was grief, and I am going to share how it affected my health and well being in my life before Flower Essences.

I doubt any humans get through life without feeling grief, nor do I believe this is the point. For one thing, grief is a vital part of experiencing our illusion of separation from Divinity. Grief has a deep purpose in our spiritual evolution, because grief encourages us to seek conscious reunion and oneness with the Divine. However, grief has a low vibration. It has a role to play, but grief is not meant to be stored long term in our energy systems.

Grief stored long term brings challenges to our energy systems, causing a wear and tear that invites in illness and other energetic difficulties. In addition, stuck grief makes it hard for Divine light energy to flow through our energy systems and this in turn impedes our evolution as spiritual beings.

In the physical body, stuck grief can lead to lung infections and respiratory problems. This is because our lungs are the place in our physical body where most of us store our grief.

Lung problems were a nearly continuous experience of my childhood. The adults in my family were not comfortable expressing or acknowledging grief or sadness (or really any emotions). They were not comfortable when other people, even children expressed and released grief. From a very early age, I got the message loud and clear to swallow my grief and even take on the unexpressed grief of the people around me. Energetically this grief settled in my lungs.

This process began when I was only a few weeks old. Perhaps my mother was suffering from postpartum depression. Even if she was not, grief is something all newborns contend with as they leave a state of womb oneness to experience the challenging earth “reality” of separation. In my case, the pediatrician said I was failing to thrive because I was too polite and never cried. From the beginning I got that my mother could not cope with my feelings. So began a childhood in which I tried to handle my emotions on my own with no idea that I was meant to let them go. I also got the memo that it was part of my job to take on the unexpressed emotions of the other people around me as well.

When I began working with Flower Essences thirty years ago, healing this situation of chronic lung complaints was one of the first things I experienced. That first year with Flower Essences, I had very little understanding of what Flower Essences were beyond encouraging Angelic messages that Flower Essences were safe to use and going to be helpful in my life. I had very few expectations about what they would do.

I made Flower Essences from the Flowers the Angels guided me to select, and my children and I started to use them each day. I had no concept of why the Angels had chosen the Flowers they chose. From my point of view, it was about as scientific as when I made “Goldenrod tea” in the backyard when I was eight. However, the Angels clearly had a plan- a BIG plan as it turned out- but it felt pretty relaxed to me.

I was guided to take different Flower Essences several times each day. Some Flower Essences cropped up daily and some more sporadically. I kept track of the Flower Essences I took and what my guinea pigs children took in a little aquamarine book where I also noted “results.” I had a dim idea that Essences would help with emotions as well as physical complaints, so I frequently wrote about the moods of myself and my children before and after taking the Essences.

I was open to seeing improvements but didn’t expect the positive shifts in my physical health that quickly occurred. Until I started using Flower Essences, I got bronchitis and/or pneumonia eight times or more a year, yet suddenly I stopped getting either illness. Within a year or two, I lived with different lungs. The Flower Essences had unpacked the stuck energy of grief I had carried so long in my lungs, and it was gone.

The Flower Essence work was not just with my physical vehicle but with my other subtle bodies as well. That is why the healing was permanent. I had a childhood rife with antibiotics, yet always the same infections reoccurred. With the introduction of the Flower Essences, all this changed.


Flower Essences work to cleanse and clear the subtle body known as the etheric or memory body where we store memories from this and other lives.

Because of the repetitive experiences of grief which so many have gone through during the kali yaga/ iron age/age of patriarchy/whatever the heck you want to call this last cycle of time, many people feel immersed in inescapable grief and memories of grief. There have been so many experiences of the same old story of power imbalances and grief amongst the disempowered that grief feels like the theme song of existence. This is partly because if we hold onto these memories in our etheric/ memory body, when new griefs arrive, we tap into all the similar griefs of the past and reopen old scars with new material. Needless to say this is overwhelming, especially for all the light workers out there who have been beaten down life after life for shining their light.

The particular inner grief theme song I carried led me to resign myself to my fate of absorbing all my family members’ grief in a desperate attempt to not have them hate me all over again. Somehow I knew they didn’t like me and never had. I was that odd ball kid who remembered past lives and I remembered they didn’t like me. Once again, I was with these SAME PEOPLE trying to change their opinions of me by taking on their emotional burdens including their grief.

For anyone who has read this blog, you know how THAT turned out, what with the death threats from family members and the eventual disinheritance, but hey, at least Flower Essences helped me stop carrying their emotions for them and cleared my etheric body so that I could face these familial dramas without being overwhelmed in grief.

Clearing our etheric bodies with the help of Flower Essences or some other tool is really important. When we keep grief and other difficult memories in storage, we fill our etheric bodies and compromise the ability of our etheric bodies to do their jobs. The etheric body is meant to be cleansed and healed from damage done by the memories of difficult events, so it is free to remember Divine Reality. Cleansing and healing also frees the etheric body to be the primary vehicle through which Divine life force or prana flows into our energy system particularly the physical body.

Thirty years ago, as I worked with Flower Essences including Comfrey, I had no idea these Flower Essences were giving my etheric body information about clearing out old stuck energy so that higher vibrations could flow in. However, this is what happened.

Other Flower Essences we would come to make in subsequent years for cleansing and healing the etheric body include Abandonment & Abuse, Alba Maxima Rose, Alignment Garden, Black Currant, Bottlebrush, Cedar, Comfrey, Dandelion, Desert Forget-Me-Not, Ethereal Fluidium Super Glue, Flow Free, Hops, Ladies Bedstraw, Maple, Rosemary, Spruce, Sweet Olive, The Thread of Change, The Three Phacelia Sisters, Violet Transmuting Flame Violet, White Hibiscus and Wound Healing .


As I dove into using Flower Essences, much healing began in my mental body as well. The mental body stores the Divine Plan for us. However we often cannot access this information for ourselves because our mental bodies are crammed with illusions, ideas, concepts and opinions gained through the limited perspective of our five senses experiencing the illusion of stage set Earth.

In the case of my grief, I had an enormous file cabinet in my mental body to back up the illusion that grief from my experiences of disapproval and ostracism was the logical consequence of expressing my light. I stored these ideas because not only did the adults around me in my childhood make it clear they experienced me and my light as too much, but they were the same souls I had travelled with in other lives who had ostracized and disliked me then too. This led me to fill my mental body with burdensome “proof” I was too much and deserved their dislike. My misunderstandings meant I filled my mental body with everyone’s low opinions of me and thought these were truths. Memories stored in my etheric body of similar situations heightened my confusion and disempowered me from unburdening myself, however Flower Essences were on the job to change all this.

Flower Essences are a gift of such grace. Even before I understood anything about them, their love and wisdom was setting me free.

In cleansing my mental body with Flower Essences thanks to the Angels’ wise choices, I began a many year process of releasing all these ideas that there was something wrong with me. It is pretty amazing how fast dumping some of these toxic illusions improved my physical health.

The Taiwan collection is immensely helpful in clearing the mental body. One of it’s main purposes is removing old mental concepts of kowtowing to outside authority. For example, in my case, I let my elders define me and had to learn that only Divinity defines me.

Other Flower Essences that help heal, cleanse and clear the mental body include: Alba Maxima Rose, All Ego Contracts Null & Void, Canary Island Broom, Cedar, Coralita, Grapefruit, Lauriana Rose, Lemon, Musk Thistle To Thine Own Self be True and the ever useful Flow Free.


The third subtle body storing grief related energies for me was my emotional body. This body is where we store emotions. It is meant to hold the higher frequency emotions, but when we don’t know how to upgrade or release lower vibration emotions, these get stuck in our emotional body and gum everything up. We can clean up our emotional body so it holds just high vibration energy by clearing out the storage of all these lower vibration emotions. It is not a denial of these emotions or their purposes so much as acknowledging what they shared with us then letting them go.

Just as we deserve an uncluttered house, we deserve and need an emotional body filled only with emotional vibrations that make us feel good and allow for the movement of more love and light through our energy system, not an emotional body crammed with grim emotions that takes us down into a nonstop experience of toxic heavy vibrations.

Some excellent Flower Essences for healing, cleansing and clearing the emotional body include: Allamanda from Taiwan, Arrowhead, Avocado, Bee Balm, Bleeding Heart Vine, Bignonia, Broccoli, Calliandra, Cedar, Cucumber, Eyes of Mary, Lantana Involucrata, Lavacolla, Montbretia, Musk Thistle Orange, Outburst, Sarah Van Fleet Rose, Trillium, Water Hyacinth, Yellow Water Lily and yes, Flow Free.


If the three subtle bodies are cleared of stuck lower vibrational energies, there is no need for the physical body to outpicture what is being stored in these bodies in order to give us insights into what is actually going on for us. When we don’t know how we really feel or think or remember things, it is a kindness our physical bodies take on to show us through illness and challenges. If we can clear these bodies, then the physical body does not have to take on this role.

It is easier to find a course correction for our energy system before the low vibrations stored in our emotional, mental and etheric energy bodies have have built up to the point that the physical body needs to outpicture the problems with physical challenges. If we find ourselves in an illness process, it is always helpful to work to clear the other energy bodies too for complete healing.

Once we are in a physical challenge, many Flower Essences will also help us clear or re-orient stuck lower vibration energies in the physical including harmful bacteria, viruses, low vibration food related consequences such as toxic heavy metals stored in our organs and confused cells.

Flower Essences for cleansing the physical body include: Avocado, Beggar’s Tick, Bottlebrush, Burdock, Cilantro, Dandelion, Date Palm, Eggplant, Lemon, Musk Thistle, Spanish Bayonet, Tomato and of course Flow Free

How does all this tie into improved immune function? If we have etheric, mental and emotional bodies cleared of lower vibrations, energy moves through these bodies into our physical bodies unimpeded. There are no lingering lower vibration emotions seeking to express themselves through our physical vehicle to get our attention. Viruses pass us by as offering us no useful learning lessons. Our energy systems have the life force flowing through them to keep tuning up the whole system to the highest vibration possible without the need to detour into inservices about issues still stored in the other subtle bodies. We can be in the flow.

What I learned unexpectedly when I began to use Flower Essences is whether we expect this or not, Flower Essences work on all four energy bodies. Not only that, but they know the nuances of these bodies interrelationships and know how to coordinate the movement and healing of these energies in the whole complex system. Just like Flowers, Flower Essences give us models for a very high vibration throughout our energy systems and support us every step of the way to find this vibration in ourselves and hold it in form in our entire energy system.

What I unexpectedly learned during these early years of “fooling around with these things called Flower Essences” was that Flower Essences offer us so much with such incredible generosity and grace. My energy bodies had been gummed up with the heavy vibrations of upsetting memories, erroneous mental beliefs I was a bad person, toxic emotions including guilt, doubt, fear, anger and grief. Flower Essences helped me empty myself of these energies so I could welcome in the abundant light energy that Divinity offers all of us every second of every day.
