Questions on Custom Mixes, Career Shifts, Breathe, OCD, an Angel Boy with Autism and Much More


Here are some questions and answers from this past week. Your questions help me learn! Thank you so much!

Q: Does it make sense to administer the motion sickness Essence,
Chinese Hat Plant, and the Anxiety Essence daily, even during days when my cat is not traveling or in an anxiety-producing situation?

A: It is helpful to give the remedies when there is not a situation pressing as it gives the animal a foundation for learning the information of the Essences before faced with the issue he or she is working to resolve. Additionally, it is easier to learn an Essence’s wisdom when not under pressure.

I would give the two remedies before and during your impending travels. Early exposure to the two remedies will help your cat begin to make the Flower Essence wisdom his or her own. Then when you travel, your cat will probably need the reminder of the two remedies to help him or her hold the vibration of equilibrium and calm during this stressful circumstance. Eventually your cat should be able to stay centered no matter what is going on.

Q: Is a custom mix less powerful than a single Flower Essence due to the Essences being diluted by each other?

A: A custom mix is not less powerful than getting Flower Essences in individual bottles. All the information in the individual bottle of an Essence is there when the Essence is put in a combination mix.

Two caveats about Custom mixes are that ounce for ounce they cost more than getting individual bottles, and custom mixes eliminate the ability to use the different Essences in different combinations.

On the plus size, custom mixes are very convenient as the Essences are blended together for you versus you having to mix them together yourself. This makes a custom mix an excellent way to go for super busy people, people very new to Flower Essences, people who are ill or anyone who wants a lot of support offered in a simple manner.  

Q: I am working with a 5 year old angel boy with autism.   I need a remedy specifically to support the transmutation of the dysfunctional imprint, “Bystander to reality.” The vibration that is veiled by this imprint that I want to promote is, “I AM the wisdom that lives my presence with detached freedom so that I can afford the beauty of an unscripted life.”

A: What about Ruby Moon Hyacinth Bean? This one has such a strong energy of unbinding and spiritual freedom. The Angels said La Belle Sultane Rose would also be very good for this child- This Rose has such a deep wise vibration of “being here now” in a timeless way. Part of its I AM affirmation is, “I AM my awakened self.” It is a deep velvety red with brilliant yellow filaments- For many years all our labels were a painting of this Rose.
La Belle Sultane is on right front and center- the Rose with all the yellow stamens

Q: I would be very interested in any Essences that may encourage wellness in a brain that seeks adrenaline/stimulation via limiting, OCD behaviors that are task or conflict oriented.  Perhaps a tall order, but a friend of mine may be interested in a customized blend if such a blend is available. 

A: This would be a wonderful mix to assemble- These are the Flower Essences that come to me to include- I would probably check back with the Angels before assembling to make sure I got it just right per their guidance and tweak if necessary- It feels like a great group of Essences to me right now.

Orange– Calming to the emotional body when we seek drama 
Orange Hawkweed– Helps us organize our impulses towards creative self expression
Larkspur– Helps our electrical system course correct- this one is important in so many situations
Bottle Gentian– A template for remaining calm and grounded even when we are surrounded by chaos
All Ego Contracts Null & Void– Support to let go of our own attraction to old patterns that no longer serve us and old habits too
Maple– An Essence offering tremendously balancing information that helps us find the middle way and the sweetness of a less drama packed path
Carry Less– So many of our patterns come from our filters about reality that impede us experiencing things clearly. This one is for erasing these filters
Musk Thistle– Like smoothing fur that is going in the wrong direction, this one shows us how to smooth and organize our electrical system when it has gone haywire
Alignment Garden– What would we do without this gem? So much information about aligning to purpose, our healthiest and wisest self in thought, word and deed
Grounding– Helps us move from a state of mental frenzy to full calm embodiment
Rosa Gallica– This one is key for this time as it helps us ground to the heart of the earth and our core self wherever we find ourselves on the map
Lemon Balm– Astoundingly popular since being introduced, this one helps quiet the mind and ease headaches

The last three suggestions for ingredients in this custom mix were from the Additional Essence list
Cherry Tomato– This one is very good for link breaking so in this instance it helps break up the chain of compulsive activity
Tibouchina– An excellent remedy for those whose minds are running out of control, it help higher energies enter through the crown of our heads to illuminate and ease this situation
Zebrina HollyhockHelps us organize chaotic impulses of action and reaction into steady stream of action in alignment with divine energy thus using this divine energy in accordance with the highest good


Q: I wanted to ask your opinion about what type of flower essence would be best for finding my voice without meanness and aggressiveness (being reactionary) and being brave when having something difficult to say. I want to be heard but don’t feel like I am without being considered a bitch. Does this make sense?

For being brave when you have something difficult to say, consider Pink Yarrow from the Cliffs of Moher and Alex Mackenzie Rose. These both help us find our voice and speak when feeling exposed or not heard- I also wondered about Showcats for this whole dynamic-This supports you to know you deserve to step into the spotlight and can do it with poise.

Frankly I feel women are considered “problems” or “inappropriate” or “too emotional” or “strident” when we speak our truth almost no matter how we do it! I have found myself taking a lot of our new Essence, Golden Hedge Hyssop, whenever I go into that old chestnut of a shame spiral that I am, “too emotional” Emotions just are. We deserve to know this and be free to use the information the emotions offer us without shame.

Many of the Venus Garden remedies support us to follow our truth and let go of what happens to it in the world- Love It and Leave It for example and also our new Effort & Grace! I would look to this whole collection for support.

Q: Hi! I discovered your wonderful page and am loving it but am a bit overwhelmed!! I’m not sure which would be the best fit for me; have a change in life situation (left academic program which was not the best fit for me and am looking for a job in my field), and am feeling overwhelmed and under motivated. Am irritable and not taking care of the grooming I usually take pride in.

A: Our site is a lot of information and can feel like just too much information- We have a document called Flower Essence suggestions for common concerns that goes topic by topic with suggestions- you might check that out. Some specific Flower Essences that might feel helpful for your new life-

The Alignment Garden– really helps us align with our purpose and helps us access the physical energy to follow through on our new path
Sage– This one offers such immense grounded wisdom about finding our way
Grief & Loss– it sounds like this has been a traumatic change of course for you- All of us still have to grieve for what we let go of even as the new path opens

The more I thought about your situation the more the Camino collection called to me very loudly for you- 
Roncesvalles– Helps us find the courage to begin this new journey
Zubiri– this one helps us get “in the zone” so our efforts generate the energy to keep us going on our chosen path- helps us find that spring in our step again
Los Arcos– This one helps us to find the courage to move on while also being open to support from unlikely places and people
Belorado– this one helps us have faith in the emptiness as we wait for our new community to manifest
Hontanas– this one helps us find the inner kindness to be tender to our bodies during the sort of transition you are in
Mazarife– finding an oasis of joy during a bleak stretch in our journey
O’Cebreiro– helps us feel supported when we have left behind people and places we know are not part of our onward journey- this kind of changing of gears is often a big taboo in our culture and this remedy helps us feel the courage of our convictions no matter how others perceive our choices
Santiago– this one reminds us that the journey is ongoing even when a big chapter in our lives has ended
Fisterra– this one helps us feel the bead of a new life amidst the death of an old one

These all feel so appropriate for all you are going through- If you can only look to one group of Essences- I would look to this collection-
On the Camino
Q: My dog has sores that appear as bumps and then she itches and bites at them.  Antibiotics cause the bumps to go completely away, only to return in a month or two.  I thought I would try
Anxiety. But, is there also something for healing?  She must have an allergy – but I can’t figure out what it is.  Do you have any suggestions?

I would strongly suggest adding Golden Armor to the Anxiety as it helps get to the root of the situation if it is an irritation/allergy/bacterial/viral/energetic issue of any sort and also helps animals and people buffer out the irritant-  We have also found that Outburst helps when an animal is having explosive skin eruptions of unknown origins- This is another one that I felt might be full of useful information.

Q: Hi! Why does it seem that everyone needs Breathe Essences right now, both the animals and people in my care?

A: We too have noticed this flood of Breathe, our combination remedy for the respiratory system, fly out our doors right now in enormous volumes.

The rising vibration on the planet means we all have to raise our own personal vibration to stay in sync with the planet. All creation is in a collective cleanse due to this rising vibration.

During any cleanse process a lot of old stuff is released. Right now this old stuff is being released through our breathing in particular. We store our grief and sorrows in our lungs. This particular moment of release is about releasing these old sorrows and griefs. As we release these old sorrows, our lungs are where we notice this release. Our Breathe remedy helps with the release and also helps the over all health of our respiratory systems which are bearing the brunt of this release work.
