  Hi

A Brief History of Flower essences


From earliest times, flowers have held a special place in people's lives as observed in art, jewellery, stories and paintings. Throughout the centuries a rich symbolism as grown up around plants and their flowers. People used them to represent love and desire, events, feast days, birthdays and celebrations of all kinds. Even though much of the symbolism has been lost we still use flowers and plants in agreement with their age old symbolism.

Flowers move us profoundly on a very subtle level that we may not consciously recognize or understand. In mystical art we often see the heart represented by a flower. An open blossom, often a rose, is a reminder to the heart to open up. Flowers stimulate the part of the aura (human energy field) that corresponds to the heart and thus explains their use as love tokens.

Today the essence of flowers is transferred into liquids called flower remedies or simply flower essences. These essences capture the impact of flowers on our consciousness and affect our subtle bodies in such a way that healing occurs.

Each flower conveys a distinct imprint or etheric pattern which is transferred to the medium of water during essence preparation. By observing and experiencing the plant's form, habitat, color and fragrance, along with study of historical use and mythological lore of the plant, the particular healing property is uncovered. These interpretations are further refined by information receive through case studies and other clinical data.

Vibrational medicines such as flower essences, contain such high frequency subtle energies. It is believed that disease manifests in the physical body only after disturbances of energy flow have already become crystallized in the subtle bodies. One of the best ways to alter dysfunctional patterns in the subtle bodies is to administer therapeutic doses of frequency-specific subtle energy in the form of vibrational medicines such as flower essences.

Whilst flower essence remedies have been known in India, China and by the Australian aboriginals and native peoples of the world for centuries, one of the most respected names associated with their use in modern times is Dr. Edward Bach of England. Bach was born in 1886. Until the end of 1918 he practiced orthodox medicine specializing in bacteriology and immunology. His increased understanding of health and disease led him to the study of homeopathy which he practiced for ten years.

Bach perceived that different emotional and personality factors contribute toward a predisposition to illness, fear and negative attitudes being the most significant of these factors. Medical science is only now beginning to address this remarkable insight into the relationship between illness and the emotions. Bach recognised that the illness-personality link was an outgrowth of dysfunctional energetic patterns within the subtle bodies and that illness was a reflection of disharmony between the physical personality and the Higher Self or soul. Dr. Bach said:

"Every soul in incarnation is down here for the specific purpose of gaining experience and understanding, and of perfecting his personality towards those ideals laid down by the Soul. Let everyone remember that his Soul has laid down for him a particular work, and that unless he does this work, though perhaps not consciously, he will inevitably raise a conflict between his Soul and personality which of necessity reacts in the form of physical illness."

Jane's Background - My aim as a practitioner & healer is to work with patients to meet their individual needs; identifying remedies to match the individual's symptoms to support their journey of healing. For the past 12 years or so I have explored the increasingly significant role which flower essences can play in strengthening the Vital Force and supporting the healing process alongside my Homeopathic practice. In particular the Living Tree Orchid Essences (LTOE) have provided me with an invaluable tool to enhance the therapeutic process & bring harmony to the body, mind & soul.

The Living Tree Orchid Essence Range is a unique & beautiful collection of over 127 Vibrational flower essences & 48 Aura Sprays which combine the Orchid essences with specific essential oils to give enhanced therapeutic benefit.

  Soul Dancer - Don Dennis' Orchid Dream
 
Soul Dancer - Don Dennis's Orchid Dream

From Don in the UK - I am sometimes asked if I have a favourite orchid, which is an awkward question for me to reply to, as I feel affection for each one in the range. It is a bit like having 86 children... But I must admit that certain ones stand out for me, and sometimes for reasons I cannot begin to explain or fathom. One of these is Soul Dancer, a new essence we made on December 25th 2013, with the orchid Portillia popowiana. It is in fine bloom again at the moment, and I took these photos of it this morning.
 

I first bought this orchid about 14 years ago, but we didn't make an essence with it, despite my friend Peter Tadd saying he thought it would be a good one for essence-making. I was simply attracted to its funky style, the way it didn't seem to go along with standard notions of orchid fashion as it were. And then after a while I moved to Gigha, and I lost the orchid in that move.

I was delighted though to get another specimen last year from the commercial orchid growers in Ecuador called Ecuagenera, and this was a fine plant, in very good shape despite its journey to Scotland. It came into bloom last autumn, and again in December, and that was when I discussed this species with our friend and colleague Adrian, and we agreed it was appropriate to make an essence with it. I was thrilled and delighted, as Portillia popowiana had always intrigued me so. And it was simply a "coincidence" that it was made on Christmas Day, we had not planned it that way at all.

We had just published our deck of Orchid Healing Cards two weeks before, so the timing in that sense was a bit unfortunate: this essence was arriving late for the party. And it was just that notion I dreamt of a week after the essence was made.
 

This was one of those stunning and astonishing dreams you only rarely get... I was in a huge cathedral in New York City, one that had a ceiling far far higher than any cathedral I have ever actually seen. The cathedral was packed with people, as a wedding was about to take place, and I was the groom. Throngs of people could be seen outside who couldn't get in due to the crowds inside. The front walls and main door of the cathedral was made of glass, and outside I could see that my Best Man had arrived, though he was a bit late. I somehow floated over to the door and opened it so he could get in, and as he entered the cathedral the crowd inside and out gave out a huge cheer - they were delighted that the Best Man had made it in time. He had a farmer's straw hat on, and an easy smile. As he entered he took the hat off, and someone gave him a vest and a tie to wear, which rather magically got put on him. The vest was creamy white with purple paisley patterns; and the tie was purple. Now the wedding ceremony itself was about to start, and that was when I woke up.

It was a day or two before I realized that this dream was about Soul Dancer, but as soon as the penny dropped, it was very clear to me. The Best Man in the dream was a fine human representation of the qualities of this orchid: cheerful, at peace with himself, but with a deep connection to his spiritual journey. This is what Soul Dancer conveys: the joy of Life, and the ability to feel at home with who we are spiritually, even if we do not conform to society's expectations. As one of our customers put it, this essence is like a spiritual Just Me.  (Just Me works primarily on the emotional body.)

Who was the bride you may wonder? She didn't make an appearance in the dream, as the ceremony hadn't begun. But my feeling is that it would have been Crown of Consciousness / Masdevallia regina. As the botanical name suggests, this Peruvian orchid has a regal quality to it, though it goes far beyond that.
 
When we (Heather Decam and I) first made Crown of Consciousness about 12 years ago, Heather saw her spirit guide prostrate himself in the room, bowing down to the orchid the entire time we were in the room. Later when I asked our clairvoyant friend Peter Tadd to do a reading of it, he avoided doing so for several months. When I asked him why it had taken him so long to get around to doing this, he told me he felt intimidated. I was surprised: why would an orchid make him feel intimidated? He replied that it was like being asked to do a reading of the Dalai Lama. To come into the presence of this orchid, he said, was to enter the Holy of Holies, the living Word of God. That when this orchid blooms, the whole Earth knows it.

And so I feel in the celebration of our work with the orchids which culminated recently with the publication of the Orchid Healing Cards, that Crown of Consciousness would be the Bride , while Soul Dancer is the Best Man.

Angelic Canopy - Rescue Remedy

If you can only have one essence then this is the one! An Angelic Shower flower bloomed & was made into essence at time of 9/11. Balm for the troubled soul. If you can only have one of the Living Tree Orchid Essences, this one should be seriously considered, as it is so helpful in these times. Angelic Canopy brings nurturing to those who are in grief, despair or who have lost hope. Releases the tension from the flight vs. fight response.

OUR MOST POPULAR ESSENCES
Defender from the Dark - Protection +++

In response to a perceived global energetic challenge, this orchid called out to be made into an essence in early October 2010. The second part of the botanical name Pleurothallis phalangifera translates as "phalanx-bearing" meaning the orchid spike looks like it is carrying a small phalanx of soldiers. A dream-time image which came to Don repeatedly one night about this essence was of hundreds of elves with their bows on their shoulders, marshalling their forces, preparing for battle. And indeed the orchid looks reminiscent of that Tolkien-like image.
 
OUR MOST POPULAR ESSENCES
There is a sense with this orchid that, while it knows the dark, it is not of the dark. Embodying deep goodness of being, it is nevertheless not naive about the threat posed at times by dark forces. There is an old adage in American football, that the "best defense is a good offense"; this essence provides both clearing of and protection from high levels of dark energies .

Defend, Protect & Purify

There is a kindredness of spirit between Defender from the Dark and Protective Presence. Both orchids display a fierce attentiveness, warding off malign influences. When one is faced by external negative entities, this is a very powerful combination to provide protective armour for our spirit. It helps to re-energise our determination to move forward on life's difficult paths, with a deeper sense of our true worth.

Gentle Geisha

Excellent for unwinding at the end of the day. Helps to calm the overly-active mind, bringing one - very gently, graciously - back into one's body. Imagine sinking one's head down into a soft silk cushion, and knowing that there are times when it is entirely appropriate to set aside concern for the many responsibilities and cares that one has acquired. Allow the energies of these three beautiful orchids to soothe and nurture you.

Gentle Sleep

Gentle Sleep is an enhanced version of Gentle Geisha, with the addition of the essence of Rhododendron griffithianum, made by Don in Achamore Gardens.

Gentle Sleep helps one to achieve a deeper and more relaxed sleep.
