This beautiful photo of the Red Lily was taken by Ian White, founder and creator of Australian Bush Flower Essences in the Top End in the Northern Territory, Australia. This flower is actually a lotus and is known as the Sacred Lotus, a symbol for spirituality in Buddhism, throughout South East Asia. It is one of the amazing Bush Flower Essences which have contributed so powerfully to my personal and spiritual journey over the past two and a half years.
The Red Lily Essence supports me as a mother by helping me to keep my feet firmly on the ground and able to attend to the practical matters in my life, while at the same time, enhancing my ability to tune into the spiritual realms and receive guidance.
Since attending my first Australian Bush Flower Essence workshop in 2008 I have been on a fast track to learning so much more about myself, my family, friends and clients and have seen a blossoming of my intuitive abilities, spiritual awareness and confidence in myself. I have introduced the Bush Essences to many people and enjoyed witnessing the often subtle, yet powerful positive change they have brought to many lives.
Those of us coming from Anglo Saxon roots lost contact with using plants and flowers to heal us many, many years ago. The exception early in the 20th century, was Edward Bach who created the Bach Flower Essences. Then in 1987, Ian White made his first Australian flower essence and a new generation of this wonderful form of vibrational medicine was born.
I now use my collection of Bush Essences to resolve almost every physical and emotional malady that crops up in our household. We still use western medicine for issues like my son’s suspected broken foot four days before Christmas, and my daughter’s occasional asthma. But for all the other stuff like blocked noses, rashes, coughs, tantrums, anxiety, tummy upsets and bee stings, Bush Essences do the trick. They have become my first aid kit and my primary resource for emotional and spiritual support. I love them!
In my next post I will offer some tips for getting to know your inner, intuitive self.
