New Flower Essences from the Summer of 2011

This year saw a dramatic uptick in divine light pouring into the planet. This means the Earth must ground this high vibration energy as must all humanity. It’s good news for all of us as this light is part of our collective spiritual evolution, but it also brings us challenges as we try to align our vibrational systems with this new, more evolved energy while letting go of slower vibrations that impede the grounding of this new light.

The gift of Flowers is that they know how to ground these higher vibrations in form and are happy to impart this wisdom via their Flower Essences. Each of us must rise to the challenge and become a more evolved version of ourselves, and Flowers stand ready to help us.

This season, the Angels and Elementals of Green Hope Farm continued to help us create Flower Essences that will support us all to ground these new vibrations in our physical bodies.

Many of these Flower Essences come from Flowers that have long stalks reaching to the sky. This Flower signature reflects the planetary process at work of receiving this light from higher realms and grounding the vibrational wisdom from these realms into form. This plant signature also echoes the wisdom held by these Flowers to be both in this world but also part of the coming age, a complicated dance of being fully here while attuning to what we must bring into manifestation.

Because of the pressing need to tune up our systems, the Elementals also asked us to focus on making Flower Essences from Flowers native to the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa. Plants originate from six distinct geographical regions or Floral Kingdoms on Earth with most of these Floral Kingdoms covering vast areas of the planet. For example, the Floral Kingdom we live in here at the United States is the Boreal Kingdom which covers 42% of the Earth, including all of North America, Europe and Central Asia.

In contrast, the Cape Floral Kingdom is by far the smallest Floral Kingdom comprising just .04% of earth and entirely contained within the country of South Africa. Amazingly, this tiny Cape Floral Kingdom gave birth to the greatest biodiversity of any Floral Kingdom with over 9,000 different plant species co-existing in this region with almost two thirds of them endemic i.e. originating from this Kingdom and this Kingdom alone.

This Floral Kingdom represents an inexplicable evolutionary leap forward which scientists might call a mutation and which I would call the result of a previous uptick in the planetary vibration eons ago.

No matter how we understand how the Cape Floral Kingdom came to hold such diversity in its flora, it is an immensely important source of wisdom for humanity right now. If we are to ground the vibrations coming to the planet, we must give birth to a new world of peaceful divine oneness in great diversity, and the Cape Floral Kingdom offers us a manifest model of this.

Since conscious oneness is a term in use more frequently these days, it seems worth describing what I think this is and is not. Conscious oneness is not a group mindset in which everyone follows the lead of one person, one organization or any authority figure. Conscious oneness is a state in which we each take responsibility to seek our own inner guidance and live in authenticity from this inner guidance. Because of the divinity within us, this means that each of us will bring to the world gifts of self that neither diminish nor imperil others, but in fact, add to the light of collective humanity.

One last thought. It’s hard not to notice that cleansing weather has been part of this vibrational shift for the planet. In order for these higher vibrations to prevail on Earth, old, stuck and slower energies must be removed from land, air and water. This cleansing is going to happen through weather if we don’t aid the Elementals in this work.

Therefore, in addition to seeking Flower Essences to help you make this vibrational leap, I also encourage you to work with the Elementals to benignly cleanse your environment so that extreme cleansing mechanisms like floods, earthquakes, drought and fire are not necessary for the land you live on or in places you hold dear.

A cleansing process can be found in the current Guide on page 240 AND on the blog right before this one.

Below is a brief description of the new Flower Essences followed by a more indepth description with a photo. Later in September we will have one more Essence to offer when we make this year’s Venus Garden mix on the Autumnal Equinox.

Cape Fuschia “Moonraker”- Keeping calm, cool, collected and focused on our spiritual tasks at hand no matter the disruptions we face.
Cape Hyacinth- Help to receive the blueprints and divine inspiration for this coming age.
Graham Thomas Rose– Support to express our unique creative voice in a time when individuals not organizations will bring the paradigm shifts necessary for us all.
Kirengeshoma- Finding and keeping to our true path.
Lemon Verbena-
We have to dump a lot of informational mind idea rubbish to evolve but this one helps us retrieve the ancient wisdom that still serves us.
Linden- Help, particularly for those born before 1978, to rewire our circuit boards so we can contain the new energies.
Margaret Merrill Rose– Support to have serenity prevail in our electrical systems as well as in our emotional response to external circumstances.
Nicotiana Mutabilis- A model for authentic self expression while simultaneously understanding our underlying interconnection.
Pineapple Lily- Helps us birth a dramatically new and healed paradigm for cooperative co-creation both within our individual lives and collectively.
Pink Magnolia- Supports our cellular awakening and rebirth in alignment with the new higher energies while also helping us feel safe and comforted amidst all the change.
Verbena Bonariensis-
Support to do the healing work to find appropriate boundaries in formerly enmeshed relationships or circumstances and then maintain this loving but appropriately detached place.


Cape Fuschia “Moonraker”- Phygelius “Moonraker”
This soft creamy yellow tubular Flower comes from the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa. It’s Flower Essence offers wisdom about zeroing in on what matters and what we must do even in extremely distracting circumstances. In particular, it supports us to keep focused on our spiritual tasks at hand, especially during times of tumult or disruptive circumstances that might otherwise overwhelm or splinter our focus in many directions. This is an extremely wise Flower Essence offering information about how to stay cool, calm and collected in times of stress or when many different forces press us to fly off in different directions.
I AM clarity of thought, word and deed.

Cape Hyacinth- Galtonia Candicans
This is the largest, most striking Hyacinth I know. In our garden, its white bell shaped blossoms rise up on stalks almost five feet tall. Cape Hyacinth helps us bring to consciousness all that we need to remember about ourselves and our individual and collective destiny in this coming age. It helps us access dreams of import and otherwise connect with the realms that hold the visions of this coming new age. This Flower from the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa has been waiting to serve humankind since the birth of Flowers.
I AM the blueprint of the coming age.

Graham Thomas RoseRosa Graham Thomas
This deep yellow Rose helps us mentor our creative selves in a grounded way. It helps us do what is actually needed to get our creative projects moving, and it also helps us truly understand the value of our creative voice and our creative endeavors. This Rose Flower Essence serves the current paradigm shift by helping us grasp that this is a grass roots new age in which the solutions that are so needed will come not from organizations or self appointed leaders but from each of us who awake to and express our creative knowing.
I AM the full manifestation of my creative self.


Kirengeshoma- Kirengeshoma palmata
Native to eastern Asia, Kirengeshoma bears pendulous soft yellow blossoms on long arching stems. There is something extremely gentle but also intent about this Flower, and this is reflected in its Flower Essence which offers wisdom about following our true course gently yet firmly.

This time calls us to continually distinguish between right and true action versus unproductive or harmful choices. It calls us to abandon the mind ideas of the prevailing culture to live from our own inner knowing. This is not a casual process but requires much earnest inner work as well as a willingness to take full responsibility for our choices. Kirengeshoma Flower Essence supports us in this process of discernment as well as holding true to our truth in our decisionmaking.
I AM on my true path.

Lemon Verbena Aloysia triphylla
We have to dump a lot of informational mind idea rubbish to evolve, but this one helps us retrieve the ancient wisdom that still serves us. It helps us remember things we thought were long forgotten from our memory including past life wisdom as well as wisdom held by the collective unconscious. Lemon Verbena also has a sorting function and helps us bring forward useful information, not random trivia. It is a particular friend to herbalists and those who work with nature.
I AM the remembrance of things past.

Linden- Tilia americana
This ancient fragrant Flowering tree has often been planted in allees that lead majestically from one place to another. This ushering us through thresholds is also a gift of its Flower Essence. Linden offers timeless wisdom about vibrational adaptation. As our electrical systems work to match the rising planetary vibration, Linden helps us build an evolved circuit board to absorb this vibration while also staying grounded. No words can do justice to this pillar of light or the profound way it can help us move through this time with greater ease and grace. The Angels have explained to me that those of us born before 1978 have outdated circuit boards and will have to do different work to hold the new energies in our electrical systems than those born more recently. They say this is a particularly good Essence for those of us born before 1978.
I AM full manifestation of the light.
Margaret Merrill Rose

Margaret Merrill Rose- Rosa “Margaret Merrill”
A pearly white Rose whose Flower Essence helps us remain serene during complex overheated energetic situations. It is good in particular for fiery situations or times when we feel “wired” with systems racing. This Rose helps us find and maintain our calm amidst any crisis or overheated drama. It is also a great support when we must help others find a necessary calm after a collective panic.
I AM serenity incarnate.

Nicotiana Mutabilis Nicotiana Mutabilis
This coming era will be an age of spirituality in which we will experience our divine oneness while simultaneously living from a more authentic and grounded sense of self. Given our prevailing cultural model of cutthroat personal interest at the expense of others, this era can sound like a fairy tale. Yet the rising vibration of the planet is going to require us to live this different model, and Flowers offer a living vibrational example for how we can make this transition.

Nicotiana Mutabilis Flower Essence is a Flower that offers a particularly helpful vibration for realizing this new paradigm. It ushers us to a new expansive model for co-existence that encourages self actualization in the closest of close proximity to others.

Recently discovered in the Rio Grande do Sul region of southern Brazil, this Nicotiana’s Flower signature reveals it’s unique strengths. Usually Flowers from a single plant are the same color, and when the colors are different, it is usually because the Flower opens one color and fades to another. Nicotiana Mutabilis is the only Flower I can think of that has many different color blossoms on the same stem all open and blossoming simultaneously in a range of colors from white to pink to magenta. These Flowers with their tall nodding stems of many colored blossoms have an otherworldly quality of fairy like magic, yet they are very much a grounded and real presence in the garden.

As a Flower Essence, Nicotiana Mutabilis is going to help us grasp the dynamic of self actualization within the context of connection, encouraging us to know the truth that oneness does not mean losing our unique qualities as a soul but in fact, means being this more so in a world of actualized spiritual harmony and interrelationship. I AM manifest oneness.



Pineapple Lily Eucomis comosa
Native to the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa, this dramatic Flower rises up rather unexpectedly from loose wavy leaves into a majestic stalk of purple buds opening to green and white fragrant blossoms. Each Flower stalk is set off by a jaunty splash of leaves above the Flowers, giving the Flower a slight resemblance to a pineapple.

This Flower has a very long history as an herbal remedy. As a Flower Essence it offers much wisdom about birthing new healing paradigms in even the most unlikely circumstances and even when a situation may feel anemic and unable to support new life. It will be useful for relationships or any structure that needs a new infusion of energy and new direction in order to grow creatively. Of course, it will help us with this big mutation project on our hands; to go from illusion bound warring tribes to co-creators of a new Earth.

The Green Hope friend who called my attention to this Flower found it helped her transform a romantic partnership that had gone in tragically destructive and seemingly unsalvageable directions into dramatically new healed terrain. It is tremendously powerful in its ability to birth the new no matter the circumstances, and therefore is a much needed Flower Essence at this time of transition for humanity.
I AM the new beyond the domain of all that has gone before.


Pink Magnolia
This was the first new Flower Essence made in the Green Hope gardens in the spring of 2011. It helps us to integrate and assimilate into the cells of our physical bodies all the light and higher vibrations flooding into the planet right now.

With a vibration both protective as well as deeply comforting, Pink Magnolia helps us towards a cellular awakening and rebirth experience that is both individual and collective. As a Green Hope friend in Sweden said, ”When I first tried it, it felt like, “I have come home” in some way.” A long time healer friend reports, “Pink Magnolia is a remarkable Essence! Thank you for the gift of its deep heart opening. It’s a timely Essence that’s gone into every blend since it arrived.” Other Green Hope friends have reported numerous healing synchronicities after working with Pink Magnolia, another gift of this sparkling friend. The pink of the blossoms is very key to this Essence.  Almost everyone reporting back as we introduce this Essence has a story about the color pink in his or her life or things of pink significance occurring.
I AM comfort in times of change.

Verbena Bonariensis


Verbena BonariensisVerbena bonariensis
This is a dramatic yet sweet lavender Flower composed in delicate clusters on very tall stalks. In the garden the Flower both harmonizes with all other Flowers but also feels set apart. Its Flower Essence works on this strength to be both connected yet appropriately detached. As an Essence, Verbena Bonariensis supports us to experience equanimity and good boundaries, even after significant enmeshment. It helps us to find a space of forgiveness for all involved in any drama without getting pulled back into any inappropriate dynamic. It helps us stay in a place of loving detachment, helping us define a landscape of evolving harmony different than the terrain that went before. This is incredibly important right now because we can sometimes do the work to heal and move on, then fall back into the same dynamic out of a sense of guilt or over-responsibility. This one helps us let go for good.
I AM forgiveness with detachment.
