It takes a bit to unpack the mystery of flower essences, and in order to do so, I have to talk to you first about water, and where I'm coming from with my process.
The following is an excerpt from my book, Flower Power: Essences That Heal
I believe a precedent was set and revealed early in the Genesis story—a precedent that I honor each time I create essences. In fact, I see a direct correlation between the creation story and what I believe to be God's original intent in creating the Garden of Eden.
To be completely transparent here, I’m not a religious person. My personal view of organized religion is that it is has fostered evil and ill will for millennia now and, as a sad result, has failed humankind miserably. That said I do believe in the God of the Bible. I also believe that we’ve glossed over a good many keys to healing as well as how injury happens in the first place. Keys that are contained in Genesis and other ancient texts that relate essentially the same story.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
English doesn’t do the creation story justice. It's impossible to translate Hebrew to English without losing essential details. Each word has several meanings, even the characters that make up the words possess multiple levels of depth. What I want to point out here is that the word "hover" means to flutter, shake or vibrate. So the Spirit of God was vibrating over the waters, infusing it with Divine frequency—fine-tuning the planet we call home to the vibration and sound of its Creator.
Some Bible scholars believe a lot more happened between the two sentences you read above. This may explain why so little science appears to align with typical creationist beliefs. It may also explain why, on the opening page of the original Hebrew text, the earth appears to have become a total mess (tohuw, meaning chaotic, nothing, confusion, waste, wilderness, empty, formless and vain) after God created it.
Taking the original Hebrew into closer account, the creation story might read this way: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth became chaotic and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was vibrating over the waters.” We see God covering the earth with water a second time in the Noah story. It doesn't specifically say the same hovering went on in Noah's time, but we do know the dove was sent out from the ark. That was literal, but was it also symbolic? There are other places and writers in the bible also comparing His voice to the sound of water and Psalm 29:3 specifically says the voice of the Lord is over the water.
Frequency needs water
Water is a perfect carrier and recorder of frequency. In fact, it’s the only substance on earth that can transmit its frequency to everything that comes into contact with it. Recent research confirms water’s ability to bridge energetic and physical worlds by accumulating and transferring vibrational patterns and information. So it just makes sense that God needed to overwrite the intervening broken pattern that resulted in chaos and darkness in order to restore the planet to His original intent.
Here in essence-making land, I use the same process but add the frequency of flowers. I carefully choose the flowers that I add to water then I pray over the composition and leave it for the Spirit to hover over. That is, I leave the mixture completely untouched until I literally see light, and see that the light is good. In this careful, conscientious, prayerful way; the flower essences I create are both natural and supernatural.
As a result, my flower essences resonate with the specific healing energy of the flowers I choose and with the energy of Creator. There is a flower for every emotional disturbance, and I can get ultra specific when customizing a batch to address an individual’s specific challenges.
Flower essences vibrate at extremely high frequencies, which works wonders whenever low-frequency vibrational disturbances have taken hold of a person, because whenever you introduce a higher-frequency to a lower frequency, the lower frequency must yield to the higher frequency. Always. Without exception.
Remember the water? That perfect carrier and recorder of frequency? Our bodies are 70% water - give or take. Sometimes, it might be necessary for old patterns of chaos and darkness to be overwritten with a new frequency. Our own personal Genesis.
Eden: The Original Idea
So let's skip ahead to Eden. I believe God's original intent was to bring the kingdom of heaven to earth. Throughout the Bible, heaven is referred to as a kingdom. If you managed to stay awake in history class, you know that kingdoms and empires expand their territories in one of two ways: conquest or colonization.
God chose colonization. Even though there was a clear and present enemy on earth, war and conquest weren’t part of the game plan. Instead, He did the unexpected: He planted a garden!
Inside the garden He put people and directed them to go forth and multiply. There was a plan for expansion. Eden reflected heaven's atmosphere, government and culture. There was no sickness, stress or heartache; there was no decay or corruption. The garden was paradise (heaven on earth). So God’s plan was as obvious as the garden itself: occupy earth and expand His kingdom outward “on earth as it is in heaven."
Although the original Eden is no longer a place you can find on a map, it has become even more accessible. Jesus was crystal clear when He said that restoring God’s kingdom on earth no longer has anything to do with a physical dwelling place:
"The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say 'Here it is' or 'There it is' because the kingdom of God is within you.”
But restoring God’s indwelling kingdom simply can’t happen as long as people are carrying chaos, destruction and wounding inside their bodies.
So far, I've made a good case for water's role in bringing restoration. What about the flowers? Let’s take a closer look at the end result of a flower and its purpose for existing.
The flower is the reproductive part of a plant. Its sole purpose is to be fruitful and multiply, and my sense is that it's the apex in terms of energy of the plant. Each flower resonates at its trademark specific frequency. This frequency is then transferred to water; the perfect recorder, conductor and carrier. So when you transfer a few drops of a flower essence to a glass of water, it encodes your entire glass with that specific frequency, and every time you take a sip or apply it topically, your body (which is approximately 70% water) becomes infused with a specific frequency that can build you up in ways that hundreds of dollars invested in self-help books can't.
As symbolized in the Bible, fruit refers to attitudes and actions, as well as to the outcome of something. Paul said the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Flowers always precede fruit so it only makes sense that infusing the higher frequency of flowers into water initiates the process that can lead to an idyllic state of being.
I've been at this since I was a little girl, and have helped thousands of people find their way to better emotional health, personal, professional and spiritual development, and grounding in their identity. Even so, I continue to push at where I think the limits are, and they continually surprise me.
