A few weeks ago I joined a group that is all about learning and making Flower Essence. I love flowers. I keep a garden. I collect plant material for Art and Spells. I knew nothing about Flower Essence but I jumped in feet first!
The first flowers to come up in my garden were Daffodils. Big ones and Little ones. These were the beauties that agreed to lend me their essence. Daffodils are toxic so I didn’t pluck their flowers. I just set my jar of water next to the plant in the bright sun for a few hours.
I buried some banana peels around them first, as a thank you.
When I retrieved my jar of water I felt a surge of cheerfulness. It’s not a common emotion for me. Happy, yes. Content, often.
Cheerful? ummm…no. Cheerful has it’s own signature.
The water definitely had it’s own vibration and it was a cheerful one 🙂
I also realized after the fact that I collected the essence on 4-11-14. According to Doreen Virtue’s Angel numbers it pretty much says:
“Angels are helping you to keep your thoughts positive so that you only attract your highest and best out comes. “
The one thing I’ve always been bad at is keeping records of magical workings. I’ve been dabbling for years and I kind of recall the different results, but I can’t be sure on a lot of things because I didn’t write it down.
So beginning with the Daffodil Flower Essence, I’ve decided to have fun with my research and results!
I’m keeping records my way. In bold color. With personal drawings and fun quotes and odd facts!
I suppose when I get around to mustering up spells and amulets and magical recipes, they too will be written more artfully than a standard Book of Shadows.
I’m discovering that The Art of Flower Essence is more in the Intuition needed to ‘hear’ the message and ‘feel’ the vibrational energy.
Obviously I got “cheerful’ from them but some of the other messages were:
- Inner Light.
- No more Doubt.
These messages correlated with what I researched. Which is awesome but it makes me wonder if I’m only feeling what I expect to feel. So yesterday I was out collecting the dying flower heads for amulets and spells, the hyacinth began to beckon me. Dancing and singing and teasing, I decided to collect the essence before I researched, so as to accurately compare my data with others. I let you know how that worked.
And not to disappoint anyone, The daffodils did request their own likeness and I’ve begun and Spirit doll in their honor! I have everything ready. I just need to sit down and do it!
**Update – the Daffodil doll is finished and can be found here!
Although it is the last Daffodil project on my list and I’m not sure if I want to move on just yet.
