Society's Change Champion
People born during the third quarter moon phase evaluate the old and find ways to be transformative on both an individual and communal level. They, more than any other type bear the brunt of the tension between ideological awareness and the current systems and cultural structures that have become entrenched in society. On the micro level, which is themselves, they have a great importance on being their authentic selves, but who that is is many times a mystery to others. The way they are able to reevaluate and throw out the old, and reinvent themselves completely can keep everyone guessing. In the same way, they are able to apply that on a macro level to structures and ways of running the world to engineer social change. Rather than getting directly involved though, most of them tend to influence action in others that are in positions to get things done.
Because they seem to use themselves as the practice change model first, flower essences can help ground them in their identity. Dreams are an important mode of inspiration and revelation, as is downtime and solitude, though they are prone to rumination. Here are the flowers we've chosen for this blend.
Bull Thistle helps release negative past experiences with structure or authority, allowing you to see situations more clearly and trust healthy structure and leaders. Bull Thistle helps with a better balance in cause-oriented people, in that past trauma is sometimes driving their zeal rather than objectively seeing the inherent issues and righteously rebelling against unjust authority.
Rue helps us identify deceptive and abusive behavior masquerading as good intentions. It replaces blind faith with true discernment involving those who are impacting our lives or well being. Rue helps us shake off gaslighting, brainwashing and other mind games and change the roles we play in the wake of narcissists, those in positions of authority and charismatic personalities with hidden motives. With Rue, we’re more able to see where our boundaries have been lax. Rue’s botanical name is Ruta and comes from the Greek word “reuo“ which means "to set free." Rue helps us see the truth about our relationships and leaders, and the truth sets us free.
Coleus helps increase dream recall. Just as the coleus doesn't need sunlight to be vivid, you don't need the daylight to see clearly about your destiny, your hangup, your potential for averting disasters or seizing new opportunities. Coleus increases the vivid pictures waiting in the shadows.
Goldenrod instills self-trust and confidence especially in those who don't have a strong sense of their individual identity. We cannot help but derive our identity, value, and meaning from external sources, however, Goldenrod will help where affirmation and attention is needed, it helps one to stop seeking peer approval and gain inner strength and conviction about who they truly are.
White Chestnut stops excessive mental chatter, repetitive or obsessive thought patterns that can rob you of focusing on the topic or task at hand. White Chestnut is like a mental organizer, instilling calm and peace by allowing the mind to choose between thoughts that are good and those that should be rejected, closing off the mental replays that are not in our best interest.
Lemon Balm facilitates a deep natural relaxation. It eases the velocity of the mind, helping you slip into an alpha state more easily. Lemon Balm also moves anxiety out so revelation can surface. Lemon Balm flower essence is a restorer after stress from modern civilization and from being around too many people or stretched too thin. There may be anxiety over something obvious or anxiety over something lurking in the background of the mind. Either way, Lemon Balm helps release peace of mind, usually through dreams.
Old Master Rose essence helps us release old familial attitudes, judgements and belief systems that are irrelevant in this day and age, or don’t serve us well. Sometimes there are some residues and knee jerk reactions that have been handed down the family line that Old Master can dislodge.
This is a 1oz. bottle that will last you about a month of daily use.
