1. ALPINE MINT BUSH - Prostantera cuneata


Negative Aspects - Mental and emotional exhaustion * lack of joy * weight of responsibility
Positive Aspects - Revitalization * joy * renewal
 

This is a remedy for those in service, giving much of themselves emotionally and listening to people in pain and need. They are having to think of how to help or heal and be creative, as well as often feeling responsible for others. As a consequence, they can reach a point of tiredness, feeling that their life has lost its joy. There is a feeling of "why bother". This Essence works on a mental and emotional level. It puts spring back into their life and into the work that they do. This remedy helps to refresh and revitalize when there is a feeling of mental and emotional exhaustion. Like the other Mints, this is a very aromatic, refreshing and cooling.

2. ANGELSWORD - Lobelia gibbosa


Negative Aspects - Spiritual confusion * spiritual gullibility * looking for answers outside of self * spiritually "possessed" * interference with true spiritual connection
Positive Aspects - Attaining spiritual truth/protection * access to gifts from past lifetimes * repairs whole energy field

Viewed from one aspect, this flower has the appearance of a Fleur de Lise or a scabbard. The Essence is for reaching ones own spiritual truth by cutting through a lot of the confusion and misinformation i.e. helping one discern the level of truth in "channeled message" from other people. When the flower is looked at the opposite way, it is like a merlin, cloaked in purple with the yellow stamens marking the third eye area. This plant is stunning in its doctrine of signatures. Taking this Essence allows access to and the retrieval of gifts which have been developed in previous lifetimes. It doesn't heal the past, rather it accesses it and brings it forward. It is best to be used on its own, preferable not for long periods. This Essence creates protection within one's own mind. It protects from outside influences so one can receive information for the higher self without interference from other sources or entities. It keeps the soul within the soul. Before working with Angelsword it might be beneficial to have some period working on healing the aura with Fringed Violet. Where Fringed Violet worked to repair areas of particular Aura damage, Angelsword Essence works on the energy fields as a whole. It is certainly a very powerful Essence and one which again is reflecting the tendency of the New Essences to address the higher spiritual aspects of our lives.

It is common for the Boab tree to have younger tress growing around it in a circular pattern symbolic of a family. Also Boabs can merge and form into one tree. The Boab Essence can clear the tendency to repeat the same patterns lifetime after lifetime. It will access and clear those core patterns and all the ensuing beliefs. This Essence is also very powerful in helping those who are experiencing or who have had experiences of abuse or prejudice. This can be a pattern that a person has repeated many times and that they are also drawn to in their present life. When used in a spray it can be very effective in clearing negative thought patterns within a group of people or in a specific space. This Essence is very important as it can bring about a positive change in this planet by helping to heal the collective consciousness. Everyone should take this Essence!

This remedy is very good for guarding information until the energy has been built up within to allow it to be assimilated before letting that knowledge out.

Also for nightmares which beset children when they are associated with past times, as opposed to nightmares coming up for unknown reason for which Grey Spider Flower is more appropriate. Ian White (the discoverer of Bush Flower Essences) received the message that these two new Gariwerd Essences, Dog Rose of the Wild Forces and Green Spider Orchid, would be dealing with the higher vibrations and herald a new level that people are ready to work at. Both would stimulate rapid growth on the spiritual path.

34. MINT BUSH - Prostanthera Striatiflora


Negative Aspects - Spiritual trial & tribulation * despair * overwhelm * perturbation and confusion
Positive Aspects - Calmness * ability to move on * readiness for initiation
 

This Essence was made in the area of The Valley of the Winds in the Olgas (Katajuta), an extremely sacred area where the energy is exceptionally powerful. The aromatic Mint Bush exudes an extremely cooling, calming and cleansing feeling; a sharp contrast to the arid, dry heat of the area. On the morning Ian White (the discoverer of Bush Flower Essences) made this Essence he was aware of the presence, on a spiritual plane, of twelve aboriginal elders standing in a circle, surrounding him and giving instructions as to how to make the Essence up, its properties and an understanding of both the plant and the Valley of the Winds. Mind Bush is for the spiritual trials and tribulations that one goes through just prior to initiation, when one feels one is being tested. Perturbation is a word that often describes this state. There may be also a lot of confusion and complexity in one's life. There is not the total despair of the Waratah but very much the feeling that everything is too difficult and too much to deal with. It helps one cope with the dross being burnt off before merging to a new level.

Negative Aspects - Deep hurt * isolation/guarded * feeling blocked
Positive Aspects - Overcoming obstacles * opening up * forgiveness
 

An annual that is found in the stony country of the outback and has a striking, pinky purple conical flower head. The Pink Mulla Mulla is for those who put out prickles to keep people away. They tend to be quite isolated and unable to solve a hurt, wrong or injustice which can be very deep. They carry it around like a scar on the soul. This impinges on their attitude to those around them and can make them suspicious of people's motives, allowing them no rest. Always on guard against people hurting them again, they protect themselves by saying hurtful things to others to throw them off guard. What they say to those around them doesn't always reflect how they really feel. It is a means of keeping people at a distance so they won't be hurt again. This remedy helps to disintegrate emotional blockages. It allows one to "bridge the gap" and get over hurdles.

47. RED SUVA FRANGIPANI - Suneiria Rubra


Negative Aspects - Turmoil * emotional upheaval * sadness
Positive Aspects - Feeling nurtured * equanimity * calmness
 

Ian White (the discoverer of Bush Flower Essences) had a very passionate experience with the Red Suva Frangipani. He was strongly drawn to this plant before he made up the Essence. It is unusual in that it hasn't the aromatic quality of other Frangipanis but a very husky, almost Tibetan kitchen-like odour. While meditating at the base of the plant he was told to go up to its flowers. After doing this he bathed in the energy of this flower and immediately felt tremendous ease, calm and nurturing. This Essence addresses the great emotional intensity, difficulty and hardship that people can go through when a relationship is ending, close to ending or going through a very "rocky" period. It can be taken for the shock of the loss of a loved one. Red Frangipani deals with that enormous sadness. Sturt Desert Pea deals with sadness after the event, whereas this remedy deals with the raw emotions in the middle of the experience. The person can be feeling greatly disturbed, not suicidal as in the case of Waratah, but torn apart by the event or situation.

58. SYDNEY ROSE

 

Negative Condition - feeling separated, deserted, unloved or morbid

Positive Outcome - realising we are all one, feeling safe and at peace, heartfelt, compassion, sense of unity

 

The first aspect of the rare Sydney Rose to strike you is its intense, beautiful colour of the purest, pure pink. Pink is symbolic of the love vibration and the healing quality of this remarkable Essence is to realise and know — on a deep heart level not merely an intellectual level — that there is no separation between us, that we are all one.

If human consciousness is going to evolve then this will need to be the one fundamental premise to be embraced and to operate from, for in so doing it will create compassion, tolerance and love for others and the willingness to help and support others. It is not surprising then, that whilst making this Essence I kept hearing over and over this message "the crowning glory, the crowning glory, this is the crowning glory of the Bush Essences."

Be patient with the results from this remedy if sometimes it appears a little slow acting. Remember that some of these people HAVE been in this state for a long time. More than this lifetime?
