California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) - Reconfigures birth trauma that contributes to the sense of powerlessness, hopelessness, anger, or lack of vitality in your life.
As the essence says of itself:
I AM personal power, emotional balance and uninhibited capacity to engage life.
Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
California poppy, a self-seeding annual, is native to western North America and prefers sandy, open, sunny sites. It is a pioneer species that is sometimes found in vacant lots, roadsides, and in unexpected places in the garden. When a child of the indigenous Ohlone tribe was restless or unable to sleep, one or two California poppy flowers were placed beneath the bed to help relax the child. A tincture or tea infusion of the aerial parts (and roots according to some herbalists) helps to relieve insomnia, anxiety, spasmodic coughing and pain from acute injury or toothache. Externally the cut root or a salve of California poppy helps to heal cuts or scrapes. It is gentle enough to be used by both children and adults.
Use California Poppy Flower Essence if you experienced birth trauma either while being born or giving birth. This can include, but is not limited to, physical or emotional trauma in utero, being stuck in the birth canal, inability to push, pulled out by forceps, having the umbilical cord wrapped around your body, breech birth or emergency C-section. Mother and baby will both benefit from this essence. If the soul of a fetus has “second thoughts” about being born into the Earth plane, or if the birth is very difficult, the soul may not completely fuse with the physical body during birth. The child/adult often has difficulty fully engaging life. California Poppy Flower Essence is useful right after birth or any time you are consciously revisiting and healing your birth process.
California Poppy Flower Essence is also a wonderful ally when you are “birthing” new ideas, actions or parts of your life. Any unresolved trauma or issues from your physical birth may surface and inhibit your intended progress.
California Poppy Flower Essence helps to relieve the sense of powerless, hopelessness, anger, or depression that may accompany physical birth trauma. When birthing a new life for yourself, it rebalances the tendency to feel powerless, uncentered, highly emotional, overwhelmed, or unable to move forward with the actions that you want to take. Experiencing any or all of these may lead to anger toward yourself or someone else. California Poppy Flower Essence helps to restore balance and perspective with your process, and encourages your ability to fully engage life. This essence relates to the 2nd chakra.
While the essence was being made, varying sizes of drusy quartz crystals were placed among the plants with the storage (mother) bottles. Drusy quartz crystals help to energize and stabilize your subtle bodies. Also, two California poppy flower petals were placed by the center-front crystal to represent the opening to the vagina, the birth canal. The actions of the gemstones and the California poppy petals inform the way this flower essence seats into the physical body.
