Flower and Plant Essences
One of my website clients, a plant essence specialist, was kind enough to gift me some of her therapy in return for a good deal on a well-made and low-priced website made to demand. She gave me a special bonus in the form of a couple of essential essences, made from plants.
The first plant essence – a standard one from her range – is called ‘Desktop’ and is especially prepared for people like myself who sometimes sit too long at a computer and get ‘fragged’. It is prepared in a base of pure sprimg water with vodka as a preservative. I simply drop a few drops on the crown of my head when my brain starts going ‘chewy’. It has an immediate cooling sensation, it feels like it is opening and straightening my inner flute (aligned chakras) – like ‘pull yer socks up’ – its refreshing and does seem to help concentration last longer.
The second essence was special request, a kind of treat and the one I want to write about here. My partner and I were just off to one of our favourite haunts for a weeks camping and I was interested in watching stars, particularly as it was midsummer. I asked her to mix me something up that would sensitise me to starlight. Quite a request as it can be hard to get your hands on the raw materials of starlight. So on the longest day of the year (2009) I waited up for the stars to come out, bottle of ‘Starlight’ in hand.
Now I don’t know if you go camping but all that fresh air and physical activity makes one pretty tired. I applied the essence to my crown at about 10pm and by 10.30 there was still no sign of a star. The moon was centre-sky, two-thirds towards full and very bright. There was also a light mist obscuring sky towards the horizon. My partner and I dropped a few drops of ‘Starlight’ onto our hands and inhaled. I dried it off by rubbing the Starlight essence into my head and waited some more. It was 10.45pm by the time we spotted Polaris, then, very faint in the strong moonlight, Sirius, then the Big Dipper came out, but all very faint.
We discussed whether or not to put on our waterproofs and lie on the dew-wet grass to watch but decided we were too sleepy, the moon was too bright and our necks were too stiff from staring straight up.
Off to bed at 11pm. My partner was swiftly asleep. I left the tent flaps open as it was such a beautiful night. It was only then that the ‘Starlight’ essence started to work on me. I became very sensitive not to the starlight, but to the interplay of subtle light-energies happening around me. The tent itself held the moon shadows of the apple trees under which we were camped, moving slightly in the light breeze. The shifting of the tent material amplified this shadowy movement. Outside the campfire had burned down but was still going, creating light flashes and sparks on and within the tent. Outside I had also hung a night-light candle that flickered, adding another dimension to the delicate interplay of energy. I lay there, wrapt up in a long moment of enjoying the interplay of moon, fire and candle making colours and shades in an energy dimension, until sleep finally claimed me.
So although I did not see much in the way of starlight that night, this essence of flowers and plants certainly helped me to enjoy a simple perception of light ‘playing with itself’. This interplay goes on all around us, all the time. I still wonder whether the ‘expectation’ of starlight provoked this ‘time out of time’ or whether the plant essence held a missing vibration that helped my being to be sensitive to light.
This is essentially one of the great problems with getting alternative medicine interventions accepted as relevant to medical science, many of their effects are too subtle for measurement. There are many alt. med. interventions that claim to replace or provide missing vibrations, even to sow the seeds of a vibration so that the body can remember them for itself.
Some practitioners use plant essences such as those above. Others use sounds – some vibrate specially tuned forks or bowls through carefully chosen rocks into particular areas of the body. There are even machines that can calculate your missing energies through various means and supply them by vibrating a homeopathic remedy straight into water – even singing you the missing tones direct. Other alternative interventions concentrate on colour and light to feed a particular, tuned energy to the recipient.
Quantum science has proved beyond doubt that we are beings made of energy, made of ‘hard light’ or ‘compressed starlight’, and this explains why sometimes a totally accurate ‘vibrational intervention' can be the perfect one in treatment of an ailment (or even just for pleasure - think of your favourite music - a vibration!) Practitioners with the level of expertise to achieve brilliance in this are rare and unusual talents.
Medical science still lags some distance behind this perception of the body as ‘vibration’ or energy and its institutions actively encourage legislation against experimentation with radionics and vibrational healing.
I am still curious as to what my plant essence practitioner put into the Starlight mix. Maybe she just put a bit of me into some spring water and vodka and gave it back – and there’s a whole other story in the form of ‘feedback’ interventions!
