LOVE FEST: Day 12 & 13 LOVE's Essences...

Hey Sistahs,
How are you on this healing journey so far? I am feeling a difference. Working with the Rose quartz, praying, meditating and affirming the 42 Laws of Maat have already demonstrated a shift in me. I am more aware of myself and others. I can step back from challenging situations and see underneath them...I can also see those places where I have work to do...I can see with my mind's eye that many people act from a hurt place - or a wounded place. It helps me to de-personalize situations that previously had me in knots. A great deal of heart healing has to do with keeping the heart as light as a feather - supple and tender even after tremendous pain.

I was reorganizing some of my purses and I found a flower essence I had purchased and never used. I looked up the healing properties and realized that it was no coincidence that I had found this essence during the heart healing process.

Star Tulip (also called Cat's Ear):

Cat's Ears is a mystical plant. It represents the unfolding of the mystical path, presenting the picture of one who turns away from the world to listen to the voice of a higher world. When taken as a flower essence, it facilitates the development of inner awareness and the quickening of the spiritual life (no living being lacks a spiritual life). Cat's Ears often allows one to integrate past life experience in ways that facilitate a lessening of fear and trauma so that the soul can move forward in the current life time unencumbered. It allows for a distancing from the more negative aspects of group soul or life stream consciousness as well, so that one is less likely to to be swept away in group panic or hysterical states.

Cat's Ears is helpful with those who seem to retreat into another world as a result of abuse, neglect or abandonment. It is helpful for human beings and animals on the threshold of death. It assists the soul in making the decision to stay or to leave and often alleviates a prolonged and uncomfortable death. Cat's Ears is the most effective when taken as an essence in homeopathic dilution. Combining it with other essences seems to lessen the effect. Cat's Ear is a lonely plant, that treats conditions of loneliness, and prefers to be taken alone.

Star TulipPositive qualities:
Sensitive and receptive attunement; serene, inner listening to others and to higher worlds, especially in dreams and meditation..
Patterns of imbalance:
Feelings of being hardened or cut-off, inability to feel quiet inner presence or attunement, unable to meditate or pray.

Star Tulip flower essence is an exquisite remedy for gently opening and expanding the life of the soul. It can be characterized as a “listening” remedy, helping the soul to become more aware of subtle influences, or of guidance from higher realms. This remedy is very beneficial for those who feel unable to contact their Higher Self, or who feel they cannot meditate or pray effectively.

another sources says...
Star Tulip flower essence has a strong relationship to the “anima” or inner feminine. It is an excellent remedy for men who have denied their softer, more receptive side, or for women who may have built a shell of protection around themselves. Star Tulip opens and sensitizes the soul, making it more aware of its connection to higher worlds. It enhances dreaming, prayer, meditation, and all intuitive capacities. It is an important flower essence for the beginning stages of the therapeutic process, helping to open and “soften” the emotional life, enabling the individual to recognize and retrieve important information about the healing process.

At its deepest expression, Star Tulip builds a chalice-like vessel in the human soul, creating the capacity to receive and contain higher thought and inspiration.
