Every year it is a delight to see and be with this plant being. She is a potent plant ally. This photo was taken in the native gardens where I Iive. Echinacea loves it here. Each year she continues to seed & grow. Bees and butterflies enjoy her nectar, spiders enjoy living under her petals and birds enjoy the seeds. Echinacea is well known for the good medicine and nourishment she provides for many. Have you ever seen her pollen ring? or the spirals she creates? These are two of the many clues to the potency she provides.
As flower essence, echinacea strengthens and aligns us to live in right relationship with our true inner self especially when challenged and under pressure. She brings Earthly nourishment for the soul which is important when living in the these uncertain, chaotic, modern times. When we have been through shattering traumas she will support our return to an integrated sense of Self enhancing our immune system & self esteem along the way.
Echinacea harmonizes the relationship of the first, second chakra with the solar plexus known as the third chakra - connection with inner strength, radiance, efficient use of our energies.
One space this essence arrives is when we are in the midst of transition. We have been unwinding outgrown habits & patterns that hold us back & are are in deep growth & discovering our new identity. This can be quite shocking or shattering through out our whole being. Echinacea brings the sensation of threading together, discovering you have a new footing on the floor beneath you. An inhale followed by an exhale. Inner strength begins to weave throughout every cell frequency of your being. You begin to trust you will no longer shatter that whatever is shifting away is good. You begin to know you can create new ways of being, new ways of living. A new strengthened sense of Self begins to take hold as integrated wholeness is recognized.
I invite you to take pause in your busy life and sit with this wonderful plant being. Allow her to share wisdom with you. What do you notice? What do you sense, see and feel as you gaze and receive her medicine?
Breathe . Be . Enjoy ♥
