Today I would like to share with you one of my favourite essences from my range, Rhododendron.
This essence was co-created in January 2016 at The Lost Gardens of Heligan is St.Austell, Cornwall. This has always been a favourite flower of mine, as growing up in Cornwall it could be found growing wild along the sides of roads as well as in all the manicured stately gardens within the County. With big flamboyant displays of every colour you could imagine and the strange twisted trunks and branches providing shelter, surely the fairies and pixies gathered there to play. For me it has a essence of pure heart centred magic.
This particular year the Rhododendron tree that I visited at the Lost Gardens was starting to flower early, being still within the stages of deep winter when we are naturally within ourselves and taking a back step, for me this gave the added support of colour and light within dark times.
When I sat with the Rhododendron tree to create this essence I received a beautiful message during its birth. I also felt very supported and held on the chilly and frosty January morning.
“Support in times when you feel pulled in many directions, feeling overwhelmed and not knowing which way to turn. Welcoming and gentle, giving peaceful refuse to those that seek shelter from the harshness of life. Inspiring graceful strength and beauty with flamboyant display. Allows you to feel that you can always be seen and heard from a place of the heart.”
Connecting with the Essence of Rhododendron
Take some time for yourself, make sure you won’t be disturbed and sit comfortably.
Hold the essence bottle, look at a Rhododendron flower or look at the Mandala and begin to slow your breathing.
Focus just on your breath and begin to look at the flower or image.
Any thoughts that enter your mind, just acknowledge them and let them go.
Allow your mind to still and just ‘be’.
Now that your relaxed, ask that the Deva or Spirit of Rhododendron to connect with you and that you are open to any guidance she may have for you.
Be aware of any thoughts or feelings you may have, take notes.
When you are ready, bring your awareness back to your body, wiggle your fingers, toes and have a drink of water.
Be sure to notice any signs from the Nature Kingdom as you go about your day. Be aware of the messages they may hold for you.
