Plants communicate their uses through various “signs” with what is known as “The Doctrine of Signatures.” A Swiss doctor in the Renaissance popularized this theory through his wide spread healing activities. His name was Theophrastus Bombastus Van Hohenheim and he eventually became better known as Paracelsus. He was educated in botany, mineralogy, natural philosophy and the occult. He was fired from his position at the University of Basel for “disrespect for the establishment.” (I like it :). Paracelsus considered the shape, color, structure and sacred geometry of a flower as divine signs that were communicating its curative powers. This doctrine has been an enduring theme for herbal medicine almost continuously since Renaissance times. The photo above is a good example of the Doctrine of Signatures. This is Trailing Arbutus and it grows in remote boggy areas with its beautiful blooms found under a very leathery leaf. You cannot see the flowers unless you lift up the leaf, (after sloshing through bogs that create a sucking sound on your rubber boots that make you think you may get stuck in the watery mud forever) which you do by practically laying down on the squishy moss :). As you gently lift the leathery leaf you get to experience the reward of a sublime fragrance emanating from the simply gorgeous pink flowers. All the trouble is worth that one moment of radiating fragrance. Anyway, Trailing Arbutus is for improving our ability to enjoy solitude and silence. It is an excellent essence to take with you when you go to meditation or silence retreats. It also is a great essence for those who fear to be alone in their own silence. An indescribable sweetness will nourish your silent periods or time that you are able to spend alone. This essence even works for when you are among many but still want to access that silent sanctuary you know that is within you. Our flower essence combination called SWEETNESS OF SOLITUDE is perfect for this and contains Trailing Arbutus. You can find this essence at www.spiritwatergardens.com in the Mary Essences collection.
Hi Everyone! In these times (and ya know coming up is Valentine’s Day) there is a lot of emphasis on our connection to the heart. “Returning to the heart” has been an essential aspect of our exploration of consciousness. “Following the heart” has been the next component of our path. Many of you have experienced these powerful heart “unfoldings” for your journey into expanded states of awareness. In the past, we have been separated from our hearts, and now we are seeing new depths of beingness as we once again embrace the path of the heart.
And not to take anything away from our heart experience; the magnitude of embracing our hearts is already something way beyond where we were previously, but it but it is also important to remember that our spiritual journeys move us to realms is also important to remember that our spiritual journeys move us to realms that exceed where the heart explorations have taken us. We are being that exceed where the heart explorations have taken us. We are being prodded to explore depths with the whole of our being, not just isolated prodded to explore depths with the whole of our being, not just isolated parts. In your contemplation, you will be given experiences around the parts. In your contemplation, you will be given experiences around the essential nature of the soul. We can experience this as a feeling of expansion. essential nature of the soul. We can experience this as a feeling of expansion.
You may have dreams (as I do) of my physical house getting bigger or having huge additions put onto it, and this is the mirroring of our own soul expansion. We know the feeling of that heart place, now sink deeper, to the cave of the soul (as if there is a trap door on the floor of your heart chakra chalice). Here we find a much deeper place than the heart – it is the very center of the soul – for the seat of the heart is the soul. This is where Teresa of Avila said “that the soul perceives the very fragrance of God, sweet-smelling perfumes that spread through the entire soul.” (Much like the experience of inhaling (Much like the experience of inhaling the fragrance of Trailing Arbutus above) the fragrance of Trailing Arbutus above).Although there is no actual physical scent of perfume “for the experience is more delicate” she said, this sweetness allows the soul to expand until we can begin to perceive the secrets of our whole being and the incredible freedom of exploration that our souls take over the timelessness of existence. By believing that we have reached the extent of our experience we can sometimes limit ourselves. Embracing the idea of the unlimited potential of the our spiritual path, brings us to the miraculous flowering of all aspects and dimensions of our incredible galaxy of totality. Some flower essence combinations that support this process are CONTEMPLATION and SILENT HEART.

“Working with you Elizabeth, brings out the absolute best in me.”
“I was truly amazed how precisely was Elizabeth able to channel each essences. I knew exactly what the essence was relating to just reading the name of it and then even more from Elizabeth’s explanation. I have manifested quite a lot of financial success after a very short time of taking the essences. I felt more comfortable and confident asking for the prices for my products while taking the drops. What was even more fascinating was that I was also taking the drops on someone else’s behalf through my intention and when I finished I saw great improvement in that other person. I wasn’t even finished with taking the drops and I called for more reading and refill to continue to improve whatever the guides were addressing that needed my attention. Not to mention, how much I have enjoyed talking to Elizabeth each time on the phone. Feel very blessed to be guided to her through another Angel of mine.”
“Thank you Elizabeth for the wonderful essences! I already feel a huge shift.”
