Lupine (Lupinus sp) - Entrains the energetic pathways that feed fear and anxiety with the energetic pathways that encourage a mental state of heart-centered peacefulness.
As the essence says of itself:
I AM gentle mental ease and heart-centered personal peace.
Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
There are many varieties of lupine plants. Lupines prefer sunny sites with sandy or loamy, acidic to neutral well-drained soils. Because they fix nitrogen into the soil, lupines can grow in locations with nutritionally poor soils. They are beautiful naturalized in a field or in a garden and provide valuable food for butterflies. Over the centuries, lupine leaves, stems and roots have been prepared medicinally for a variety of internal and skin issues. However, because they contain bitter-tasting toxic alkaloids, lupines are not a source of food for humans.
Many of our body’s alarm circuits are grouped in the amygdala of the brain, which has as a primary role in the processing and memory of emotional reactions. Use Lupine Flower Essence when "reflexive" emotions like fear, anxiety and panic take hold, and when sensory inputs like smell, sight, sound, touch or physical location trigger emotionally charged memories. (If the trigger is a physical location like walking into a room that reminds you of a traumatic experience, the hippocampus of the brain is also involved. See Meadow Rue Flower Essence to address this symptom) Lupine Flower Essence can be helpful for worry, obsessive thinking, panic attacks, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. It may work best when used in conjunction with other essences that support the specific symptom. Some of these are listed below.
Lupine Flower Essence works in the amydala, two almond-shaped masses of neurons in the limbic system of the brain. While some regions of the amygdala store memory of emotional reactions such as fear and danger other regions of the amygdala produce sensations of benign peacefulness. Lupine Flower Essence entrains the energetic pathways that feed fear, anxiety and panic with the energetic pathways that encourage a sense of peacefulness. It also strengthens the energetic pathways between the emotional heart, olfactory system, other parts of the limbic system with the peaceful aspects of the amygdala.
While the essence was being made, the storage bottles (mother bottles), amber, amethyst, charoite and drusy quartz gemstones were placed among the plants. Amber aligns the subtle bodies with the physical body, transmutes negative energy into positive energy, emits a sunny and soothing energy that calms and enlivens the disposition, and helps you to understand the consequences of your choices. Amethyst is the stone of spirituality and contentment. It enhances the cooperation between your mental, physical and emotional bodies. Charoite assists with integrating heart chakra and higher mental energies while transmuting what we perceive as lower negative energy. Drusy quartz crystals help to energize and stabilize your subtle bodies. The actions of the gemstones inform the way this flower essence seats into the physical body.
