I was called to make this essence straight after we had a really bad hailstorm! One of the worst we've ever had in fact ... with hail the size of tennis balls! I recall walking around our land assessing the damage .... a lot of smashed windows, outside glass tables, water tanks ... and it goes on.... it really was horrific......but for me I was more concerned about our plants and trees!!!!
BOTTLEBRUSH was a much younger tree then and had just begun to blossom (so it was around this time of year) and when I saw the branches broken and hanging. I had tears in my eyes, but the sadness soon left me when I saw a Hummingbird come and enjoy BOTTLEBRUSH'S gorgeous bright red flowers!
For those of You who don't know already .... Hummingbird teaches us how to draw the life essence from flowers to create your own medicine ... so for me this was a definite indication from Hummingbird to make an essence from BOTTLEBRUSH right after the storm!
Here are some of the Healing Properties of this essence -
- enhances 'survival' instincts
- when things appear hopeless enhances 'inner power' and 'strength' to keep going ...
- energizes and instills positivity within ...
- when feeling 'battered' enhances the opportunity to come out of situation 'stronger' than before
- a reminder that things are still able to 'blossom' / come to 'fruition' even through 'hardships'
- an essence full of 'gratitude'
