Recently we have sent off so much of the combination remedy To Thine Own Self Be True that I had to mix more of the mother Flower Essences together into the blend in order to keep bottling this for you. I find the demand for this remedy extremely heartening.
Yes, it is a very confusing time with a lot of institutions and structures and ideas that we thought were solid and true falling to pieces. But how wonderful that in response to this, so many seek their own true self as their north star. The Light is within us, and it cheers me that so many are looking there for it.
As always when I assemble a combination from individual Flower Essence mothers, I fell in love all over again with this remedy. It offers much encouragement and wisdom about being true to one’s self in a layered but gentle way. I felt so strongly about the strengths of this mix and how supportive it is for all of us right now that I put a large bottle on my bedside table.
Below is a list of the Flower Essences in the mix with some thoughts about these ingredients. But first a link to an earlier blog in which I explain why our combination remedies have a large number of Flower Essences in them. As you may know, one of my missions with Flower Essences is to dismantle dogma about them, and this blog was one attempt to do so.
One other thought. Many of these Flower Essences are from our Additional Flower Essence list (I indicate this by an asterisk next to the Essence). This is a group of Flower powerhouses that keep a lower profile here for reasons largely unknown to me. Just as the wisest person in a room doesn’t often declare this to be the truth but just quietly lights up the room, these more reserved Flower Essences infuse our whole collection of Essences with incredible strength and insight. You’ll see they do so in this mix.
The complete Additional Flower Essence list is on the resource page, and all are available in individual bottles by clicking the Additional Essence line on the sidebar on the Find a Flower Essence page.
*Agathe Incarnata Rose- This exquisite Rose helps us assimilate the tremendous Light pouring into the Earth right now while also helping us translate our intention to be our most loving self into a fully embodied state of being.
Alex Mackenzie Rose– This Rose helps us have the courage and fortitude to keep going with the task at hand. Not everyone is going to be pleased when you live from your own truth. This dynamo helps you do so anyways.
Baby Blue Eyes– Created because my then four year old daughter Emily said it was needed, this is a beloved of children who find their wisdom discounted on a daily basis even as they are timeless souls living in young bodies. Baby Blue Eyes promotes the flexible, resilient, and detached energy of knowing who we are, knowing our own value and being able to experience what happens to us without taking any of it personally- such perfect support for being true to oneself!
*Bermudiana- This Flower is endemic to Bermuda meaning that this charming little blue Flower was originally found only on Bermuda. As a Flower Essence it helps us find our unique calling in the world. It helps to make our awareness of our spiritual identity and purpose something we don’t lose track of. Bermudiana also reminds us the the still small voice of Divinity within us has its own authority!
Blueberry– So many Essences in this mix help us confidently find our true self and express it. Blueberry helps in this way and is especially helpful for those called to walk a unique and unusual path.
*Blue Eyed Grass- Have you noticed the theme of blue yet? Blue Flowers so often help us be true blue with unswerving loyalty to our truest self.
I am going to share the entire description of this one from the Additional Essence list because it so exactly speaks to this time.
“These are complicated times with much pressing upon all of us. What is our specific role in unfolding events? How do we know when to act and when to refrain from action? With so much conflict and so many conflicting views, how do we stay anchored and true to our own inner wisdom? Blue Eyed Grass offers a vibrational model for this territory. It helps us discern what we need to do or not do and then supports us to march
to our own drummer, even when this may be difficult. It knows that our true blue self-expression is right for the whole and part of the fabric of underlying. unity. This is true, even when our choices appear to separate us out from the pack and appear to cause rifts. Blue Eyed Grass helps us to know our role and feel comfortable in bold choices when our deepest truths call us to a singular path. I AM as I AM. In a sea of unity, I AM true self-expression, one with creation yet true to my unique vibration.“
*Buttercup- This one holds the sunlight of midsummer and acts to encourage us on with its friendly inclusive light of unity. After all, we all share one sun.
Cardinal de Richelieu Rose– If institutions, organizations, social groups or cultural stereotypes have boxed you in ( are any of us free of this?) this Rose helps you break free of these cages.
Cosmos– Cosmos encourages authentic self-expression by helping us open and align our heart and throat chakras more fully. This helps us speak and act from our hearts with greater honesty, clarity, power, confidence and in greater alignment with our most deeply held beliefs.
Cosmos has been key to my life with Flower Essences. Flowers were always a great love, but many expressed doubts they could be my purpose too. In turning within and being guided to make Flower Essences (Cosmos being among the first I made), I found myself knowing Flowers were my truth and path and purpose, and it was okay to live from this truth.
Daisy– We are meant to be free to be happy if we so choose. Daisy helps us center ourselves in this truth so we can let go of the niggling voices of those who would tell us its not okay to feel okay. This one has quite an organizing and aligning quality so it helps us shed doubts in a coordinated manner.
Dandelion- I asked the Angels why this dynamo was in the mix ( after all it is their recipe), and they said it helps to clear out the clutter stored in the muscles including those ideas that it is not okay to be yourself.
*Delphinium- Delphinium helps us own our power in any situation and remember our own divine inner authority no matter what we face.
*February Daphne- This one helps sweet people (too often the doormats of the world) to assert themselves. It reminds the downtrodden to assert their vision in the world. It is needed!
French Marigold– Listening to the still small voice of Divinity within us is key to articulating our true self, and French Marigold helps us with this task especially in dynamic situations in which a lot of change is going on.
French Marigold has so many strengths. It helps us with viruses, protects our hearing, helps us successfully shift gears in alignment with the incoming light. It is a treasure, and I am glad it is in this mix.
Gallandia Rose– Here this beloved speaks for herself, “I AM Gallandia. I greet you across time and space. I AM a messenger, a harbinger of good news, yet I also come to prepare your vessel for holding a different configuration in time and space. Welcome me into the matrix of your being for I come to soften the necessary adaptation process you are all embarked upon.”
Gardenia– Sometimes we all need a secret ally in our quest to self actualize, and here Gardenia offers to be that ally. And what an ally she is!
Goldenrod– Actually this is the first Flower Essence I made! Remember that story of eight year old me in the bushes making Goldenrod tea? Even then the Angels and Fairies were with me, and what a profoundly good Flower Essence for a little girl in a family who didn’t understand her at all! Goldenrod helps us have spiritual spine and stand up to all those in our tribe, circle of acquaintances and social world who would squash us and our truth.
Larkspur– Dynamic support for course correction plain and simple.
*Lily of the Valley- Keeps us intent on listening and hearing the sweet truth. It’s much better news than we think!
*Love in a Mist – When we cannot see where we are (ring any bells?) Love in a Mist helps us move forward, putting one foot in front of the other with loving intention.
Maple– Among its many gifts, Maple helps us tap into a sweet flow of confidence and trust in ourselves.
*Prince of Venus- I AM the complete expression of my Christed Self.
Purple Flowering Raspberry– I enjoy this Flower Essence so much. It pulls us into ourselves in such a magic way. Just consider its I AM affirmation, “I AM the song of divinity calling you to the unmet corridors of your heart, and to the glorious wilderness of your soul.“
Rosemary– Rosemary has a very grounding and embodying energy. It helps us tangibly feel our oneness which is a really helpful thing during this time in which we are separated from each other in unexpected and difficult ways.
Silver-rod– We manage a lot as we self actualize and raise our vibration to meet the light coming into the planet. Silver-rod helps the master conductor within us to know how to move electrical energy during these upticks in planetary vibration. It reveals to us that we know how to make this vibrational shift.
*Small Woodland Orchis- On the last blog there is a photo of a group of us observing some half floating logs on a remote Adirondack pond. These logs are the only place I ever encountered this orchid, and we only met once. She described herself as a lighthouse for swampy times. Thank you Small Woodland Orchis.
*St. David’s Rose- At a certain point the Angels asked me to grow most of the Bermuda Flowers in our greenhouse so we would have a more regular supply of blossoms. This was a delightful project bringing much beauty to the greenhouse, but there are some gems that I have never found anywhere but in old Bermudian gardens including this Rose. A towering advocate for choosing to be your own authority, this Rose is such an important ingredient in this mix.
Stanwell Perpetual Rose– I AM the strength to keep on the path of love.
Sunflower– Sunflower helps us be the super hero in our own life. And personally I feel this is as it should be. No one should be some other person’s or organization’s side kick as their main role in their own life!
Tuberose– Being your fully articulated true self requires energy, and Tuberose is one of many Essences included in this mix that help us access the necessary light to be our true self. Its I AM affirmation says it so well; I AM the force of healing light, moving without impediment through my energy system.
*Wild Columbine- No matter how extreme the situation, Wild Columbine helps us have the tenacity to stay centered, hold the light, and see the truth of the matter. This one is very helpful when a situation has
escalated into violence and we must hold our truth and the light in these
extremely challenging situations.
