Fierce Clarity + Establish Boundaries
These bright, tiny red flowers stand tall in the forest, attracting hummingbirds often throughout the day. Their bright color commands attention, and their long horn-shaped petals flare out into a brilliant little star.
This tiny megaphone allows us to access the voice within, to be able to stand tall and express our deepest, root desires (Red Chakra - Base, Root Chakra)
This energy being pulled up from our roots and being able to sustain the strength to verbally express can have a cleansing effect on the energy you allow within your life. "Energy vampires" or those who simply do not honor you in the way you are truly wanting to be honored, for expressing yourself as you are, may find better alignment elsewhere as you're speaking into your power, and they're no longer able to play their old games.
This specific essence has been blessed by hummingbird. You can read more of the story behind the making of this specific essence < here >
Hummingbird flies with fierce grace and confidence, reminding us to stop at the sweet spots to nourish ourselves along the journey. She is not afraid to cut off those who overstep her boundaries, there is too much work to do and joy to experience to be caught in fear - live fearlessly!
Scarlet Gilia + Hummingbird essence
All essences have been made in ceremony. I like to greet the spirit of the muse - and offer a prayer & a piece of me - whether that is a song, some of my hair, or tears…
Crystal bowls are laid in full sun, and filled with the highest quality water available to me in any given moment - most often I use spring water that I’ve either harvested myself, or bought from glass bottles. Spring water, especially if it has been freshly harvested, is living water, and it is able to hold the consciousness of whatever is being infused into it at a much more constructive and resonant frequency.
If the plant/flower/mineral/etc is rare or endangered, I use a ‘no-touch’ method, but for most of these essences, I’ve felt comfortable being able to pick the various plants to infuse on the surface of the water for the sunniest part of the day (I also like to make essences on full sun days, with as little cloud coverage as possible...unless it’s a flower that only blooms at night ;)
I use the leaves of the same plant I’m working with to assist in picking the flowers with the least amount of interference.
The flower essence waters are preserved with a grape alcohol (non-alcohol options are available, please contact for info).
