Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Western Columbine is a short-lived perennial that grows in moist open to partly shaded areas from timberline to sea level in the Northwest Pacific Coastal region of North America. Its blossoms have orange/red outer petals with spurs and yellow inner petals. It is a good nectar source for hummingbirds, bees and butterflies, and other birds such as finches and sparrows eat the seeds. Bumblebees and children have been known to bite holes in the spurs of the flower to drink the sweet nectar. Medicinally, indigenous peoples used western columbine as an analgesic to relieve arthritic pain by rubbing the leaves over aching joints. Some scraped the roots and smeared the milky pulp on a sore to form a scab. Others chewed the leaves for coughs and sore throats and made a decoction of roots for a cold remedy. Some chewed seeds to make a perfume.
Use Western Columbine Flower Essence when you are unable to embody confidence with the things you need and want to do in your life. It is helpful when you have or are in the process of gaining the skills needed, but are unable to put the skills into action with confidence. This could be as simple as riding a bike or as complex as writing a computer program. It also relates to not having the confidence to make necessary changes in your life or expressing your feelings.
Western Columbine flower essence works through the 1st and 2nd chakras to instill a visceral body confidence. This is the kind of confidence that doesn’t require thought, only action. Thinking about the process actually gets in the way of your body memory responding - like driving a car, playing a sport or a musical instrument. It supports the process of expressing your feelings making changes in your life with confidence.
This essence was made by the “no-pick” method. While the essence was being made, gemstones of amber, bloodstone, icosahedron quartz, red jasper, white and red stillbite and drusy quartz were placed among the plants with the storage (mother) bottles. Amber aligns the subtle bodies with the physical bodies, transmutes negative energy into positive energy, and emits a sunny and soothing energy that calms and enlivens the disposition. Bloodstone instills courage and helps one to feel capable and self-sufficient. 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. Red Jasper instills physical vitality, emotional balance, personal integrity and zest for life. Stilbite emanates a quiet and unceasing joy and carries a loving, supportive vibration to assist with grounding creative energy and intuitive knowing into manifesting. 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.
