What we perceive is often very limited. We move through many hidden worlds, visible and invisible. One of those worlds is that beneath our feet. When I was a child, I would spend hours upon hours on my knees, my nose almost touching the ground. I was not pretending to be an ostrich, I was peering into the rich and lively world that was hidden within the grass and flowers. There insects lived out their busy lives and a thousands forms of beauty lay waiting to be revealed to the searching soul.
One lovely member of the hidden land is Self-Heal, an herb with healing properties on many levels. Many years ago I made and used flower essences, believed by many to carry the healing vibrational gifts of the flower from which they are made. Flower essences are a form of energy healing. The flower I first came to know and love was Self-Heal. As a flower essence, this lovely little herb encourages self-forgiveness. It is helps to ease our grief and shame over how our own actions may have hindered our growth. It helps us to experience the ever-present, ever-accessible connection with the Creator.
