Nine flowers for the spirit

The spiritual system of Rubedo Flower Essences comprises the blossoms of nine powerful indigenous wildflowers. Among them are well-known medicinal herbs like Prickly Comfrey and St. John’s Wort, but also seemingly insignificant flowers like Field Bindweed, Wood Anemone and Red Campion – all of them possess outstanding spiritual power which is associated with the nine archetypal dimensions of man (the archetypal planetary forces) and the nine chakras.

Why alchemical flower essences?

According to Alchemy’s traditional teachings about health and wellness, even plants possess a body, mind and spirit and each of these levels has its own healing power. From a chemical point of view, these energetic forces are associated with salts (body), oils (spirit) and alcohols (mind). So the extraction of a flower’s spiritual information by submersion in water or alcohol is just a first step in the time-consuming process of creating genuine alchemical Flower Essences. The process of obtaining, according to Paracelsus’ traditional procedures, all three levels of energetic properties for a Flower Essence takes more than three months. At least one additional month – from one full moon to the next – is necessary for maturing the essence in closed containers and letting it absorb the light energies of sun and moon. And during the whole production process, from picking the flowers until final maturation, planet positions are taken into account, especially the position of the specific planet the flower is associated with. All this results in an extraordinary flower elixir with a widespread and comprehensive effectiveness.

Its vitalization and harmonization strengthens the female archetypal principle, the „moon principle“. A sense of motherly warmth and security in life is fostered, along with the potential for greater inner flexibility. An overall awareness of emotions is stimulated and refined, intuition is fostered, and a person’s erotic energy becomes more intense and „womanlike“.

Strengthening the moon principle stimulates dreaming and thus helps dissolving stagnant and suppressed emotions in working with dreams.

Rescue Flower Essence

flower rescue

Key theme: Tense mental states of, sudden shock, „emergency“ drops and „long-term“ rescue, for the spirit

Chakra: all nine chakras

LIFE-TEST: Energy 28000 Bovis

The “Rescue Flower Essence“ consists of all nine flower essences and so affects all nine chakras. It can be applied as an energetic “first aid” to all states of energetic shock, sudden energy blockage or disharmony (10 to 30 drops per hour); but also as a long-term rescue, in support of the actual treatment proper with one specific essence (in that case, 5 to 10 drops are taken up to three times a day).

According to the ancient medical teachings of Alchemy and Ayurveda, any disharmony will gradually sink from more subtle into denser energy layers, from the head chakras down to the trunk and foot chakras, and from the chakras down to the energy layers of nerves, glands and organs. If, for instance, an energetic disturbance is perceived and felt as discomfort in the abdomen, according to the ancient medical teachings that means not only is the sexual chakra (responsible for the abdominal area) out of balance, but all chakras above it are also disharmonious.

By applying Pear Essence and, at the same time, the Rescue Essence, the sexual chakra would be stimulated energetically, while the disharmony of the chakra levels above it would be “vibrated out” as well.
