Twinflower (Linnaea borealis)
– Assists the body/mind to more easily take in and integrate sensory stimuli in your surroundings. Calms mental confusion and the sense of being overwhelmed from sensory overload.
As the essence says of itself:
I AM ease and calm while taking in my surroundings.
Herbal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Twinflower is a trailing semi-woody evergreen plant that likes dry rocky to moist wooded sites. Elliptic shaped leaves grace the base of the short stems that grow up from long runners; the top of each stem divides into a Y shape with twin delicate light pink flowers. It grows circumpolar in the northern latitudes, including most of North America. Some indigenous peoples used twinflower medicinally for women’s menstrual or pregnancy issues. It was also applied as poultice for headaches.
Flower Essence Symptoms:
Use Twinflower Flower Essence when you feel overwhelmed, hyped up, agitated or reactive to external sensory stimuli. This can manifest as difficulty being in crowded, noisy, or visually over-stimulating places. For some people almost any environment feels too intense. Even the sensation of clothing touching skin can be too much. Symptoms that Twinflower Essence addresses include the inability to sit still, focus and track activities, also mental confusion and inability to make a decision because it feels like there are too many choices. Sensory overwhelm can also happen as a part of your spiritual process. Sounds or scents become heightened to a point of being uncomfortable. Your sight may change so that you see objects differently, perhaps starting to see energies. You may sense electromagnetically or “feel” objects in a way that is different, more heightened and challenging to integrate.
Flower Essence Action:
The Spiritual Healers on other Dimensions that worked with Diana while this essence was being made said: “There are packets of bio-spiritual Light particles that operate in the personal etheric, emotional and mental energy fields to regulate activities of the physical body. Twinflower Flower Essence accesses this information and brings it into the energy circuits that affect the brain stem and parts of the brain cortex and body related to taking in and integrating sensory information.” Twinflower Essence calms agitation from mental confusion and frustration resulting from sensory overload. It can be useful for children and adults that are very sensitive to their surroundings, touch and textures. Twinflower Essence can help children and adults settle their energy and focus their attention. During rapid spiritual expansion, Twinflower Essence helps the body/mind take in and integrate increased sensory input with ease.
This essence was made by the “no-pick” method. While the essence was being made, crystals of amber, azurite, citrine, drusy quartz, fluorite, icosahedron quartz, prehnite, smokey quartz and sodalite were placed among the plants with the storage (mother) bottles. The sun acts as a transformer to step down spiritual energies from higher dimensions. While the essence was being made, amber acted as a lens to receive and focus sunlight for this purpose. Azurite clears away tension and confusion, and opens the mind to new perspectives. It stimulates the intellect and brings inner vision into alignment with spiritual guidance. Citrine acts as a conduit for bringing Divine energy into form. It empowers your ability to make clear decisions and your will to take action. Drusy quartz crystals help to energize and stabilize your subtle bodies. Fluorite brings clarity and the ability to see additional realities. It aligns spirit with the physical plane, inner with outer awareness, and the two sides of the brain with each other. Icosahedron cut quartz has 20 (5X4) equilateral sides. It is a bridge between the 5th Dimension - the entry into the unified Spiritual realms - and the 4 cardinal directions (N, S, E, W) on Earth. Prehnite brings joy to your heart and peace to your mind. Encourages a link between your heart and the heart of Mother Earth. Nurtures and grounds your energy fields into the Earth’s energy fields. Smokey Quartz is a grounding stone that enhances attention to the moment. It gently dissolves emotional blockages, and aligns the physical body with the etheric body leading to mind and energy balance. Sodalite helps you to shift from experiencing your world through worry, anxiety and stress and instead to envision your life from a more serene perspective. The actions of the crystals inform the way this flower essence seats into the physical body.
The sound of rattle was imprinted at the beginning and end of the essence making process. Deer Spirit was also infused into Twinflower Flower Essence as it was being made. A doe walked close by the essence making process three times. Each time, she paused to assess the danger, then settled into eating the plants close by. Deer brings comfort, peace, and the ability to assess a situation and regain calm quickly after you have had a flight or freeze response to a perceived danger in your environment.
