September 2014: Back To School With Centered Focus

Back To School With Centered Focus

Summer is over, and students and teachers are returning to school. It’s a time of new adventure with new subjects to study, new classrooms, new classmates, and sometimes a new school. It can also be a challenging time for the same reasons and for adjusting to a routine schedule again. For some people – kids and adults alike – school poses an even greater challenge as they try to adapt to a system that doesn’t honor their unique learning styles and sensitivities to their surroundings.

Calm Centered Clear was introduced as the September special 6 years ago to help students and teachers going back to school. Since then it has been one of our most widely used blends. The Golden Armor Flower Essence and Aromatherapy Mister is also great at school. Both are available in a spray top that is easy to use and fits nicely into a backpack or purse. Twinflower is a key essence in these blends and is the featured essence for September.

Making Twinflower Flower EssenceI remade the Twinflower Essence this last June. It was one of the most intense essence making processes I’ve experienced. The day started out partly cloudy with the forecast of “clearing to sunny.” So confidently I packed up all of my gear – mother bottles, crystals, journal, sitting pad, etc. – and headed for the woods down the road where twinflower grows.

During the 2 hours I was there, the weather grew cloudier and colder, and even cloudier and colder. I checked with my Guides. Is there enough sun to make this essence? The answer was “NO.” For the first time in 15 years, I had to stop an essence in process. I took everything back home and waited.

Finally the clouds parted and the sun was strong enough to continue. Took everything back and started to set up in the same place; but the angle of the sun filtering through the branches of 100 foot tall Douglas Fir trees had shifted and was no longer spotlighting the same location. My Guidance was to move the mother bottles. I set the bottles down in a new spot, but it didn’t feel right. I moved them, then moved them again.

At last we restarted the process. A deer came by, checked me out, decided I wasn’t a threat then browsed on the vegetation close by. How sweet! And what a contrast to how I felt! I was agitated, irritated, unable to settle down to draw or journal. Any little twig or moss touching my body felt irritating. I wanted to move the bottles again. But my Guidance said “NO, leave them where they are.” I felt like a hyperactive child, unable to focus, settle my energy or tolerate anything touching me. The doe came by 2 more times. Each time I felt a calm settle into my mind and body while she was there. Yes, the qualities of deer are also imprinted into the Twinflower Essence. 5 hours later, we finished. Once I was home, the symptoms released. I feel so honored to be a part of the process of making these essences, and to get a first hand experience of how they work.

In Joy, Diana

Twinflower Flower Essence

TwinflowerTwinflower 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.

On the flower essence level, Twinflower Flower Essence accesses information from bio-spiritual Light particles and brings into it 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.

As Twinflower Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM ease and calm while taking in my surroundings.
